  1. Is this Ben Wolfinger’s way of campaigning for free? This has never been done before and it is quite curious to see that it is just 3 weeks before the Primary election in Kootenai County. Something smells like bad politics on Wolfinger’s part.

  2. Someone please explain to me, I’m a little slow. What on earth is a “Search and Rescue Team” searching for in an “URBAN” environment? Don’t we have numerous other agencies (police, fire, sheriff, etc.) that are supposed to do that already?
