Huckleberries Past — 5.31.1994

On May 31, 1994, I published this note in my column:

Apparently, Idaho Transportation Department officials want an exclusive right to annoy motorists. Last week, they deep-sixed plans by the Festival of Sandpoint to stage a Willie Nelson concert July 17 at Cocolalla (or Toke-olalla, as smart alecks have called it since Willie got busted for pot). How? They demanded that festival backers install a $100,000 turn lane for the concert. Why? ITD party poopers are afraid country Western fans will tie up traffic (like road crews have done for weeks in and around Sandpoint). So when did the ITD start caring about commuters?
