Siggy @ 95 & Appleway
4:46 p.m., “Don’t know if this has been mentioned, but on 4th Street, somewhere in midtown is a giant anti-Mitchell display that basically says ‘What Would Jesus Do? Not Vote For Mitchell!’ No picture, was driving too fast” — Family Phil.
4:21 p.m., Lance Amaro checks in at HBO for the first time with this report of the Spencer/ITD employee dustup over Spencer’s sign: “After the Idaho Department of Transportation gentleman took the sign from Mr. Spencer I saw him on the other corner visiting with Mr. Johnson with a big smile on his face.”
4:09, HBO dispatches Mike Kennedy to Coffeeville to confirm reports that Bill Sali supporters holding signs are speaking in tongues and handling snakes in the parking lot of Coffeeville on Fourth.
3:14, “…from Northern Post Falls sites and a couple in Rathdrum, steady but light turnout, still haven’t had a precinct breaking 10% so far…down to about 5 hours to go…” — Dan of the County. (Note — to self, tell DOTC that an ellipsis requires a space on each end.)
3:12, HBO obtains proof that the elusive Siggy really does exist (see photo by Jesse Tinsley above).
3:07, Exiting polls show Dan of the County is headed for another resounding win as Kootenai County clerk. All 10 local Demos who didn’t cross over to vote Repub say they voted for DOTC. Congrats are in order.
3 p.m., La Gina Teuteberg reports that Ramaro’s headed for 4th & Appleway.
2:48 p.m., JesseT also sez Lance Amaro is a dead ringer for Adam Sandler.
2:47 p.m., SR photographer Jesse Tinsley reports back from the 95 & Appleway front that Sandy Johnson, indeed, said something to Mallary about the southwest corner. But he didn’t think her tone was contentious.
2:25 p.m. Tammi Martinez’s 12-year-old daughter Mallary called to say that she got run off the southwest corner of the intersection by Commissioner Gus Johnson’s wife. She was holding a Todd Tondee sign. Seems Johnson’s wife told Mallary that the street corner is reserved for Johnson family and supporters.
2:20, Ramaro is gone from NW/Garden Avenue by the time SReporter Taryn Brodwater arrives their to grab a few quotes.
2:10 p.m., ITD worker Tim Turrell snatched a sign from Larry Spencer’s hand that read: “Register & Vote.” Seems Turrell stopped his vehicle when he spotted the sign in the ground near the bike path near Fred’s Appliance and wouldn’t let Spencer keep it.
1:50 p.m., Dang spots Ramaro holding signs at Garden Avenue and Northwest Boulevard.
