Huckleberries Hears

... That the judicial confirmation hearing for a proposed jail lease with a private company attracted 5-6 protesters. While some detractors listened to the proceedings in the courtroom, others stood outside holding signs, in front of the old courthouse on Government Way and later along Northwest Boulevard. Commissioners (sans Jai Nelson, who has filed suit to stop the action) are asking for permission from a judge to pursue the lease to provide more space for the county jail. Protesters want the county to ask the voters (who, I'm sure, would reject the idea).
