Eye On Boise

It seems that boo-boos happen

Sen. Mel Richardson, R-Idaho Falls, a longtime radio broadcaster, told state schools Superintendent Marilyn Howard this morning that he’d heard on the radio that the high school redesign plan was being put off a year, and he wondered what was up. “I’d like an update where the reform stands today,” Richardson said. “We don’t know,” Howard responded. “We heard there was a meeting yesterday.”

House Appropriations Chair Maxine Bell, R-Jerome, admonished Richardson, “Perhaps the broadcast media makes as many boo-boos as some of the other media,” which caused all eyes to swivel to the two print reporters covering the JFAC meeting, myself and the Post-Register’s Corey Taule. Then there was a commotion on the back bench, where two senators and two representatives scrambled, and then held up a sign for the press’s benefit dubbing Bell’s comment a “cheap shot” and “blog material.” So noted.
