State officials believe they are making progress to break a logjam over funding the Idaho Education Network broadband project. State officials spoke by phone last week with officials from the Universal Service Administrative Company, the federal contractor that controls three-fourths of the funding for the broadband project.

Question: Part of me is glad that Tom Luna will be finished as superintendent of schools at the end of the year. Part of me wished he was running for re-election so I could vote against him again, for all the messes he got Idaho into. Do you feel the same way?
