The difference a month makes?

One odd thing about the new criticism of Idaho Public Television's manager, Peter Morrill, by the governor's budget chief, Wayne Hammon, is that just a month ago Hammon heaped praise on Morrill as a creative, frugal manager. Now, Hammon is saying the governor's proposal to phase out IPTV's state funding over the next four years was a "wake-up call" in response to the agency's recalcitrance on budget-cutting (see item below); but on Jan. 12, Hammon told JFAC he has "the greatest deal of respect for public television and for its director, Peter Morrill," who he said has "been able to turn pennies into dollars."
