The flap that changed local history

"Definitely the one who changed the course of short term history was the attempted recall. That was a success and a momentous piece of subtle activism that truly helped save the day. IMHO, you could rest your entire career on that one alone" -- Searcher.

Question: Can you imaging where Coeur d'Alene would be today if Souza, Sims & Co had succeeded in recalling Mayor Sandi Bloem, Woody McEvers, Deanna Goodlander, and Mike Kennedy?
