Huckleberries Online

Huckleberries AM Headlines — 9/26/05

*Train derailment dumps potash into Moyie River/Associated Press — It’s Bush’s fault.

*Idaho Guard sends help for hurricanes: About 400 members to report for security, cleanup/Associated Press — Has this been cleared with FEMA? The federales have a nasty habit of dissing Idahoans.

*Comp time ‘can of worms’: Some lawmakers worry new law allowing Idaho’s highest-paid workers to take comp time could cost big time/Betsy Z. Russell, Spokesman-Review — Idaho managers get comp time? What’s that? In the private sector, managers don’t. I shoulda been a public, ahem, servant.

*EPA official to avoid some Idaho issues: Bogert, former Kempthorne adviser who often challenged federal programs, heads NW region/Christopher Smith, Associated Press — I remember interviewing this guy when he ran unsuccessfully for Idaho attorney general. Sharp cookie. It’ll be interesting to see if he can steer clear of the ethical lapses that haunted the last Idahoan to hold his post.

*WSU making headway against party school rep/D.F. Oliveria, Spokesman-Review — WSU officials should keep their fingers crossed that no frat rat’ll do a header of a second floor balcony. It’s hard to undo the damage caused by a few careless drunks when you’re trying to make over your party school image.
