Huckleberries Hears …

... that a lawsuit may be in the offing against the Coeur d'Alene School District re: the way the Coeur d'Alene School Board pushed through the appointment of Wanda Quinn to replace retiring Chairwoman Edie Brooks a month ago. According to a Berry Picker, new Trustee Tom Hamilton told Republican Woman at their noon luncheon today that he may be part of a suit to overthrow the appointment. Conservatives Hamilton and Terri Seymour, who won CSB trustee elections in May, had requested that the board withhold the appointment until they were sworn in July 1. Instead, the board appointed Quinn, a former board chairwoman, on a 4-0.
