The election is off. Coeur d'Alene City Councilman Steve Adams said he will withdraw his pledge to appeal a judge's ruling that green-lights major upgrades to the wastewater treatment plant, meaning the city will secure roughly $33.5 million for the project through a judicial confirmation after all. It also means the May 21 election will be called off. Adams said Tuesday evening he was satisfied with 1st District Judge John Luster's decision issued hours before the City Council meeting that declared the project was "ordinary and necessary," and voter approval to secure the debt obligation wasn't required/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: So why did Adams say "uncle"?
