HBO — to Jane Q. Citizen re: Good Californians

JQC: “I know this is all in fun with some tongue in cheek humor but I try to think of all of the people who move here from whichever coast who donate generously to community projects, who get involved to help make a difference, who volunteer at their kids’ schools and who are really nice people. I know transplants who are jerks and natives who are jerks. Also many of each catagory who are good people. It matters less to me where someone was born or last lived than what they do to make a positive difference in the community.”

DFO: Right on, Jane Q. Citizen. Now, let’s play “Californians Who Contribute Big Time To Their Inland Northwest Communities.” And I get to go first: Coeur d’Alene City Councilman Ron Edinger, Eastwide Highway Commissioner Dick Edinger, and Idaho Hall of Fame umpire Dick Edinger — three brothers who moved up here from Southern California in the mid-50s. I’ll let someone else nominate former County Commissioner Ron Rankin and his beloved wife, Alice. Game, set, match. Any others?
