Recall Effort Vs. Bloem, 3 Councilmen

A group of Coeur d’Alene citizens is organizing a petition to recall the council members who have voted in support of the McEuen Field conceptual plan. The group, called ReCallCdA, will seek enough signatures from registered voters to recall council members Mike Kennedy, Woody McEvers, Deanna Goodlander and Mayor Sandi Bloem. Frank Orzell, an organizer of the group, spoke to The Press this afternoon about the group's effort. A press release Orzell delivered states the incumbents have “failed to represent the voice of the community in their excessive spending of taxpayer monies. Included in the list of examples being cited by voters across the city are the approval of a $39 million plan for McEuen Park, excessive salaries for city employees and a growing list of other projects…” Orzell said he will deliver 20 signatures, the amount required to begin a recall petition drive, to the City Clerk’s Office tomorrow at 10 a.m./Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: Will you support a recall effort against Coeur d'Alene Mayor Sandi Bloem and three city council members?

Woody Is Swing Vote On McEuen

Woody McEvers swears he's not feeling the heat. Not the kind in his Rustlers Roost kitchen, where the 30-year restaurant owner can be found nearly every day, cooking, cleaning and otherwise running the Hayden breakfast and lunch spot off U.S. 95. It's the heat that can come through the front door of the tidy restaurant the Coeur d'Alene City Councilman swears isn't affecting him. Because when some customers pull up to the counter or plop down at a table, they bend McEvers' ear on all things political - like McEuen Field. “Yeah, I've heard that: 'You're the swing vote,” McEvers said Friday in his office at the back of the restaurant. “What the hell is a swing vote?” A swing vote is a vote than can go either way/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Can you believe some people would consider boycotting Woody's popular Rustler's Roost restaurant to try to force him to support a public vote for McEuen Field?

Woody: Sanders Deal Saves Swim Area

Woodman: One of the strongest points of Idaho, is Private Property Rights. We have been trying to get more lake access for our citizens since I have been elected. Many, Many battles and lots of money. The supreme court ruled on the high water mark, above it Private Property. I was working in Malibu in the 1970’s when the same thing happened on the ocean. Private property was above the high tide mark. Well, it has been 40 years of this battle in CD’A. I think we have done what we can preserving at least the Swimming Area and NO Docks. It sometimes does not feel like enough. I Know. We still believe and will always work for more Public Access to Lake CD’A.

Question: Did the city have any choice but to allow fences on Sanders Beach, given the Idaho Supreme Court decision that declared much of the property private?

Woody: Rustler’s Open For Dinners

Nice to see you working on a holiday? Well it has finally happened. Rustlers Roost is open for dinner Wednesday thru Saturday till 8 p.m. After almost ten years, BBQ Ribs are back at the Roost. Plus a new Senior menu with dinners starting at $5.95. Oh yea, our seniors start at 50. Can you remember 50? This is our contribution to the North Idaho Stimulus Package. Low prices and 4 new jobs/Councilman Woody McEvers, Rustler’s Roost owner.

DFO: Woody, are you saying I’m a senior?! Ouch!
