Starr: Unimpressed by Otter Skipping Mine Memorial

Starr Kelso: I was unimpressed by Gov Otter sending an envoy to the (Sunshine Mine Disaster) Memorial (this week), to read a letter, for the stated reason that the Gov was busy in south idaho. I pondered that, because even the do nothing legislature was not still in session. I wondered what was so important that he would choose to miss this Memorial. After checking the Gov's schedule for today, on the internet under media advisory, I learned that the Gov was speaking at the lunch meeting of the Garden Valley Chamber of Commerce. Just one of those "priority, can't miss things", I guess.

DFO: If Jim Risch was governor, he'd have been there. Jim was in North Idaho so often you'd have thought he was applying for honorary resident status. Alas.
