Huckleberries Past — 5.2.1994

In Huckleberries print column 20 years ago:

It's amazing that commissioner wannabe-again Bob Haakenson survives his campaigns. Last Wednesday, he got a 12-stitch dog bite on the ring finger of his left hand while campaigning door to door in Worley. Two years ago, he survived colon cancer but not his Democratic primary campaign. Then there was his 1972 state House campaign against Republican C.W. Neider. The two were jawing at the county fair that year when Haakenson said something Neider didn't like. And got punched in the nose. He didn't see that one coming either.

Question: Anyone know what Bob Haakenson is doing now?
