The Rocky Mountain Poetry Festival, still going two decades later
By Michael Corrigan
Possibly the Rocky Mountain Poetry Festival started unofficially in 1982 with a poetry reading staged at the Stanrod House, an impressively elegant "pioneer" mansion once used by the community for public events. With its wide wooden floor, ornate rooms and stairway, one could feel the ghosts from time past.
"It is obvious to me that my apology will never be good enough for the Speaker of the House," Rep. Heather Scott wrote on her Facebook page. "Is this a personal issue against me? Does he want to keep the headlines going?"
Jacob Taylor, 35, was booked into the Ada County Jail on an outstanding IDOC warrant and was also charged with resisting and obstructing, and failure to appear. He is scheduled to be arraigned Monday, Jan. 23, in Ada County Court.
