Bonner County Sheriff Elaine Savage, right, watches as a luxury motorcoach and equipment trucks pull into the rural driveway of a famly who will receive an Extreme Makeover Home Edition renovation just off Baldy Mt. Road outside of Sandpoint Saturday. Her deputies and private security were there to chase off nosy neighbors/SR Photo by Kathy Plonka.
"It was definitely a carnival atmosphere. One lady (whom I don't know) came over to where I was standing and gave me a big, familiar hug. Then, she pulled out pictures of her chickens, her guinea pig, her dogs and her cats. She was circulating among the onlookers, showing these pictures and informing everyone that she had applied for a Makeover house and that she took in animals nobody else wanted. I guess that was her M.O. Then, she told anyone that would listen that she had no bedrooms in her house and that the couch had to suffice for sleeping. It was really kind of sad."
