To the Editor:
Here We Go Again
After four years of relative quiet on the Idaho County political front,
the voters and local news editors can expect a return to local drama.
The Citizens for Good Government, which appears to be a renamed Watchmen-on-the-Wall,
has a familiar new executive director, Pat Holmberg. In this
position, former County Commissioner Holmberg is now rallying folks
in a renewed assault on the USFS over RS-2477 roads, perhaps
trying to build a revived personal political constituency in the
process. The current Idaho County Commis-sioners have meanwhile accepted
Patís offer to prepare letters on their behalf and informally represent
them with the Nez Perce National Forest.
Letís run the county sovereignty flag up the pole again, attack
those nasty feds (while continuing to accept millions of federal dollars
of course), and spend more county money litigating RS2477 road rights-of-way
even if they run straight through private property.
Maybe weíll even get a chance to vote for Holmberg for County Commissioner
again in 2010.
