Idaho Senate Hazes Newcomer

New Sen. Dan Johnson, R-Lewiston, (pictured) was assigned to carry his first bill in the Senate today; he's the appointee who replaced Sen. Joe Stegner, R-Lewiston, who took a job as the chief lobbyist for the University of Idaho. The non-controversial measure, HB 356, came from the state Tax Commission and clarifies application procedures for property tax exemptions; it had earlier passed the House unanimously. As is the Senate custom, to Johnson's surprise, nearly every senator voted against the bill - then they rose, one by one, and changed their votes to yes. After the bill had passed overwhelmingly, Johnson said, “I need a sweat towel right now, thank you”/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise.

Check It Out … Forkfly, Spokane 7

… I wasn't paying much attention when marketing director Dan Johnson mentioned that the SR was going to launch something called Forkfly and re-launch “Spokane 7.” You know I don't push much here. But you might want to click on that “Forkfly” button in the upper righthand corner of HucksOnline, insert the town where you live or ship, and check out all the sweet deals you can find at local eateries, businesses, and stores. Oh yeah, check out the new “Spokane 7,” too, here.

Question: What do you think of Forkfly?
