Gov. Butch Otter, shown here addressing the Idaho Press Club on Friday morning, has what appears to be a bright-green racquetball velcro-strapped onto the outside of his sling. Here’s why: It’s actually a squishy exercise ball that aids in his recovery from shoulder surgery. Otter said he squeezes the ball with his hand on the injured side about 500 times a day, as part of his therapy. Asked if he had any good news, Otter quickly responded, “I get rid of this sling in a week.”
