Wannabes Square Off Over Jail

Kootenai County Commissioner Todd Tondee and challenger Marc Eberlein revealed diverging opinions on county policy Thursday, when they squared off at a forum hosted by the Kootenai County Reagan Republicans. Responding to questions from group founder Jeff Ward, Eberlein criticized the county's past attempts to fund a jail with a bond measure. "This has already been put out two times for a vote, and each time voters said no," said Eberlein, Post Falls resident and owner of a cabinet business. He would rather see more effort invested in programs like work-release to free up space, he said/Alecia Warren, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: You know what's going to happen, right? Someday, sooner than later, a judge will rule that the jail is too crowded -- and the county has to build another one. Happened to the old jail back when. Can you see any other way a new jail will be built?
