Seems the show did go on

Without the usual media fanfare, attorney Jeremy Morris's annual Christmas light extravaganza took place Dec. 14-18 in Hayden. There wasn't any loud squawking from neighbors who tried unsuccessfully to use subdivision covenants to rein Morris in. And it appears from Morris' Facebook page that it was well attended. Morris, however, wondered why the light show -- with 10 more miles of lights this year, a camel, goats and "27 professional costumed-designed Bible characters" -- didn't make the "holiday lights" list of the Coeur d'Alene Press. Facebooked Morris: "Apparently, outspoken conservatives are not permitted to be on their list." Morris put the Press on his "naughty list." Morris uses the light show to raise money for the Children's Village and Emmett Paul Snyders Foundation.
