Dustin: Hart Nixed Video Interview

Dustin Hurst/Idaho Reporter, a former North Idaho College student, is in North Idaho again today, covering the 2010 Legislative Tour, sponsored by area chambers of commerce. Hucks will continue to publish his Twitter:

  • 1:17 p.m. Tour has concluded & lawmakers are heading back to various parts of the state. (Sen. John McGee, R-Caldwell) left holding a garfield doll.  ... for his daughter
  • 11:30 a.m. Lawmakers headed to silverwood for lunch.
  • 11:10 a.m. Responding to a Hucks Online inquiry re: his interview with Rep. Phil Hart Monday night, Dustin tweets: "he wouldnt do video (which kinda irked me) and gave very short answers. Not enough to write a whole story." And: "Hart wasn't rude, he just didnt have much to say. he did say his work with tax research is fulfilment of oath of office."
  • 10:42 a.m. Touring natural gas power plant in rathdrum. interesting to see water evaporation process.
  • 10:03 a.m. Lost my phone for a second. Tramatic for a reporter. Bus is definitely from the 60's by looks of upholstery.
  • 9:54 a.m. State lawmakers are heading out on final leg of tour. Heading to Avista's Rathdrum plant and eventually Silverwood Theme Park.
  • 9:49 a.m. Avista CEO: There r going to be more renewables, not less. That's just how it's going be ... It's going to be a new world for our kids.
  • 9:42 a.m. Avista CEO says through conservation program, company has saved as much energy as would be produced by one power plant. 150 megawatts
  • 9:29 a.m. Scott Morris, CEO of Avista, speaking to state lawmakers now.
  • 8:50 a.m. It seems as if Idaho Reporter is all-Hart, all the time. I suppose that's what north Idaho is doing to me.
  • 7:38 a.m. Kootenai Health rep says his hospital will deliver more than $40 million in service for people unwilling or unable to pay for it. Wow.
  • 7:37 a.m. During health care speech at legislative tour, group shows picture of someone getting a colonoscopy. It was modest, though still awkward.
  • 7:08 a.m. The speaker and the senate pro tem are sitting next to me at breakfast. I wonder what I have done to earn the honor.
