During today’s tribal law enforcement hearing, when Rep. Phil Hart, R-Athol, asked Clearwater County Commissioner Don Ebert what caused his county’s animosities with the Nez Perce Tribe to dissipate, Ebert mentioned several things, including how a Harvard mediator helped all sides work out tensions over a “jurisdictional alliance” local officials had formed in opposition to the tribe some years back. The mediator: Keith Allred, a former Harvard professor from Twin Falls who is now the Democratic candidate for governor of Idaho.
