4-H On K-County Chopping Block

Item: 4-H on the chopping block? Budget cuts could put an end to Extension Office which runs program/Alecia Warren, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: Hauser is among a group of Coeur d'Alene area residents who have rallied to protest potential budget cuts at the county, including slashing all funds for the University of Idaho Extension Office, which oversees the 4-H Youth Development program. Basically, if the Extension Office goes, so does 4-H. "I know money is tight, it's tight for everybody," Hauser said. "But you have to look at the long-term ramifications."

Question: Are/were you or family members involved in 4-H?
