The shear arrogance of Tom Luna and Butch Otter astounds me. I went to the City Club to hear the Otter talk during the governor's race. His exact words were "nobody wants to see further educations cut." In context, he was saying that wasn't going to happen again. He did absolutely nothing to help education. We're now #49 in per student spending which is really bad given the student distribution in a low population state (it should be higher due to distribution issues).
I visited Locavore again today to see if things had changed. Again, i ordered the eggs benny so I could compare them with my previous visit, which I found unacceptable (see note above). This time, I received excellent service & the food was very good.
Yikes, but I'm not clear on what this has to do with the 3' rule.
elf101 - when we're in the middle to upper part of education funding that comment may make sense. When we're #49 in funding & #50 in college preparedness how can you rationalize taking us to #50 in funding? Tom Luna & Butch Otter have taken us to new lows.
Unbelievable. Tom Luna & Butch Otter have teamed up to take Idaho to the bottom of the heap when it comes to edumacation. Put that on your resumes, boys; congratulations. You're leadership has taken us to new lows.
I've only eaten there once and ordered the Crab Benedict . The eggs were overdone and the potatoes were under cooked. I informed the server who said to me "too bad they didn't get them the other way around." I kid you not.
And that is why we all hate politicians. I don't know the guy, he may be just fine and, actually, I kind of enjoy that he uses whiskey infused snuff (I'm still not really buying that story, but I like the thought anyway), but when Butch Otter completely blows smoke up *you know where* on how to recruit businesses to Idaho with that formula - it's time to send him to school.
I wish he would have provided the leadership & commitment to protect the golden egg - public education. But he didn't, & instead, he tried to misdirect our attention. All I have to say is . . . . Next! Don't talk to me about our common values as you sit there and assault those values right before our very eyes. #Goofy
