The stage is set, the 25th Army Band is playing, and a giant American flag has been strung up on the front of the state capitol for today's inaugural festivities. At noon Boise time, Idaho's 46th inauguration will begin. Gov. Butch Otter and all other state constitutional officers will take the oath of office, administered by Idaho Supreme Court Chief Justice Daniel Eismann, and Otter will give his second inaugural address.
