Nicole: Vote In Regular Precincts

Nicole Seguin Olson: “I was out this morning in various places (15th, 7th, and 4th), and fielded a few questions about polling places. People were wondering if they can still vote at any school, which is not the case. Voters need to vote at their regular Kootenai County Elections polling location, unless the elections office sent you a notice of an alternate location (I believe only 2 polling places have alternate locations today.) BTW — I saw Jennifer Locke out looking for a place to wave signs this a.m., and I truly appreciated her friendly smile - so glad to know we can disagree about a lot of things and still be friendly and polite.”

DFO: Jennifer is one of the best things the archconservatives have going for them. Young mother/friendly smile. Some of the rest of Jennifer's allies appear to be in desperate need of prune juice.

Question: Will we be able to bury the hatchet once the school/hospital board elections are over? Or is this simply the preliminary for the battle royal that's coming this fall during the Coeur d'Alene mayor/City Council races?

Parents Filing Grievance Vs. Trustees

The Coeur d’Alene School Board is accused of religious discrimination, fiscal irresponsibility and violations of ethics and Idaho’s open meetings law in a grievance to be filed today by a group of Coeur d’Alene and Hayden residents. The 20-page complaint, supported by a petition signed by more than 80 residents, was prompted by the board’s controversial decision at the start of the school year to eliminate the Primary Years Program at Hayden Meadows Elementary School. Nicole Olson and Ashlie Unruh, who helped prepare the grievance, said they would like to see the PYP teaching framework reinstated at the school, but they also want school trustees to follow district and state policies when making decisions/Scott Maben, SR.
