Orr out of spotlight, but not out of the money

OUTFIELD — George Orr of Spokane no longer is making his voice heard on the Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission, as explained in my outdoors column today.

But he hasn't lost his sense of humor.

“I love a good debate,” said the former state legislator, a Democrat.

“And in two years, I'm going to have an extra $300 to spend on fishing tackle for my grandkids. After the last presidential election I got three conservative guys to put there money where their mouths were. 

“I bet each one of them that Obama would not take away their guns. They'd better pay up. My grandkids are counting on it.”
