Huckleberries Hears ...

... That some people are very unhappy that the names of Councilman Dan Gookin and Steve Adams will be included on a plaque at the new McEuen Park, honoring council members and others responsible for the park's development. Gookin and Adams, of course, opposed every phase of the park (often joined by Councilman Ron Edinger). The plaque is scheduled to be placed near the Donor Wall at the park sometime in early July. Along with Gookin and Adams, it will feature the names of all members who served on councils that were directly involved with the McEuen makeover. Other names will include the LCDC officials involved, former administrator Wendy Gabriel and former Parks Director Doug Eastwood.

DFO: For those keeping score at home, Gookin will be speaking the Kootenai County Reagan Republicans Thursday re: "McEuen Field: How We Got Here."

Question: Should the names of Gookin and Adams be included on the plaque at McEuen Park, honoring those who made the new park possible?
