Archives: Burning the 9:15 p.m. oil

Here's another Huckleberries nugget from 25 years ago (May 25, 1992):

Eli Ross, that wild and crazy new guy-elect on the Coeur d'Alene School Board, will have to change his sleeping habits. Board meetings sometimes wander into the wee hours. Eli's one of those early-to-bed types. Zzzzzz's at 8:30. Ross originally planned to go beddy-bye at the normal hour election night. Said Eli prior to closure of the polls: "The results will be the same tomorrow. I'll have no trouble going to sleep without knowing who won." But he was up burning the 9:15 p.m. oil when school super Keith Tolzin called to congratulate him on his win. Eli reportedly split a Pepsi with his wife to celebrate. Now, that's living on the edge."
