West-central Idaho resort to close due to judges decision.
This resort was first conceived as Valbois then Westrock, and now Tamarack. From the beginning people questioned whether there was funding to back up the plans.
At the time it was being proposed Governor, and now former Secretary of the Interior, Dirk Kempthorne, along with other Republican politicians wanted it to be a success so they gave it the thumbs up to use state lands.
President George W. Bush visited the resort while on vacation days before Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans. Presumably Kempthorne asked to become Secretary of Interior during his visit with him.
Marine One flew right by my home on the way to the resort. I presume they didn’t see my reaction.
Tamarack to close next week
