NIC Odd Couple Hess, Williams Sign Up for Sentinel

Full story here

Failed North Idaho College Board of Trustees candidate Stan Hess is back on campus, this time as a staff member for the college's student paper, the Sentinel. A self-proclaimed European American civil rights activist, Hess said he hopes to give Sentinel readers a different perspective on campus issues. "I joined the Sentinel just to be involved and, hopefully, be able to write stories that are of interest to European American students," said Hess, the former leader of the California faction of ex-Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke's European-American Unity and Rights Organization. The Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks white supremacists, considers Hess to be a white supremacist of national prominence. Hess will be joined by another Sentinel newcomer, NIC Athletic Director Al Williams. Williams, who's African American, said he didn't join because Hess did; rather, he wanted to learn about journalism and the decisions that drive news coverage -- Meghann Cuniff, Spokesman-Review.

Question: You be the editor. What would be the first assignment that you would give European-American activist Stan Hess?
