Carl Wilgus, Idaho's tourism chief at the state Dept. of Commerce & Labor, has been named state tourism director of the year by the Travel Industry Association of America - surprising no one. Idaho's tourism growth recently picked up to pre-Sept. 11 levels, and tourism in the state has grown 350 percent since Wilgus started as state tourism director in 1987. He's the second-longest tenured tourism director in the nation.
