I've just returned from California, where the temperatures were in the 70s most of the live long day. So, I can't blame Keith Wolter, the former North Idaho AIDS Coalition director, for looking forward to a change of scenery to Maui. Quoth Wolter: “I’m really excited about this. It’s getting really cold in Spokane.” Still, it seems like Mark Hyde, the interim director for the Hawaiian island group, took a shot at North Idaho when he said in an article in the Maui News: “Northern Idaho is a less-accepting community than you find here,” Hyde said. “He did very well in a tough location.” You can read all about Wolter's new role here.
