It was such a peaceful town, but she had heard of the land disputes out here, all the way back to Philly. She also knew something that they didnt. She knew the railroad was going to go through the town and that the railroad had men they were sending ahead to buy up the property needed for the railroad. These men, without the railroads consent, would act like settlers or ranchers out looking for property to buy without letting anyone know why. These men were ruthless persuaders. They made their offer only once and youd better take it. She came out here to help the ranchers and farmers. She also knew there was one big rancher out here who had a 20 or 30 thousand acre spread that stood to lose the most, if these men got to him first. She knew he wasnt about to agree; he didnt get all that land by being pushed around. She had to find him first and fast. She also had a feeling the storm didnt have anything to do with the fire last night. It was just a way to cover up what really happened. Only now she had to find a way to prove it.

Welcome to Boise, turn your clock back 250 years... where theres only one branch of government in Idaho, The Bobs: Gov Joe Bob, Senator Billy Bob, and Supreme Court Justice Suzy Bob. What an incestuous mess! Strap yourself in. Boises Watergate is a political roller coaster. Someone stole $136 million in Public Education funds at University Place -- after tricking the taxpayers into "renting" a new Court House for $100 million. Whodunit? Was it Cryptic Partners or the Boise lawyers or Governor Kempthorne or Colonel Mustard in the Library with a Revolver? If you think Boises Watergate cant happen in your city, think again: Floridas Overland Express, FOX, pulled the plug when the estimate for its public-private Florida bullet train ballooned from $4 billion to $13 billion to $40 billion. (FOX was cited as one of Cryptic Partners qualifications to develop Boises Watergate.) In Honolulu, Hawaii, 40% of the contractors working on the $1 billion BRT were under investigation, indicted, or convicted for money laundering to local politicians. Sioux City, Iowa taxpayers financed a $35 million Theatre-Hotel Complex. Then, public-private developer Cryptic Partners -- who forgot to add the seats, drinking fountains and bathrooms -- defaulted on 67% of the Complex. Seattle, Washingtons $2 billion light rail system was derailed when public-private estimates skyrocketed to over $8 billion. A recent study, Megaprojects and Risks (Cambridge University Press), cited the leading cause of public-private failures: "lying" by public-private developers. What theyre saying about Boises Watergate... Of course it was a fix. Its an incestuous mess. Senator Stan Hawkins (R-Ucon), 18-year veteran legislator who voted NO on the University Place fiasco (source: Idaho Statesman) You are on the right track. But you need deeper background. I have it. I know where every skeleton is buried. But I need deepest cover. You cannot reveal anything about me, not even where or how or by what means you obtain info from me. Zip, zilch, zero, nada. You must protect this source even if a judge threatens to send you to jail for contempt. Deepest Throat, anonymous source I was the odd-man out on the Ada County Commission during the new court house fiasco and opposed that absurdly obvious scheme to evade the Idaho Constitutions prohibition on long-term indebtedness without a vote of the people.
