Bus Tour Comes To Unhappy End

  • Originally posted at 6:13 p.m. Friday, Oct. 22

Seems the GOP Bus Tour had an unhappy ending as it swung into the Lake City High parking lot a few minutes ago for the final step of an all-day tour in North Idaho, prior to the football game between Sandpoint and the host Timberwolves. The governor, his First Lady, and other top elected officials had barely set foot on the ground when they were told by a school administrator in a pink, silk cap that they couldn't campaign on school grounds. A Berry Picker assumed that the administrator didn't know she was talking to the governor's wife, Lori, Superintendent of Schools Tom Luna, or Senate Education Chairman John Goedde. At her insistence, the GOP officials moved their campaign signs across the street from the north end of the football field parking lot and joined well wishers for hot dogs in the corner of the lot.

Question: Did the Lake City High administrator react correctly when the GOP bus tour pulled onto school grounds Friday evening?
