    Probation, counseling, no alcohol, community service. I think that amounts to an effective way to deal with the underlying problem. Like many addicts, this is a guy who has a lot of potential if he can get help and get over his problem.

    At lease he now has an updated photo in case he wants to run for the state legislature. He would be a shoe-in for representing Crook County.

      EDIT: meant least versus lease. Spell check turned off now.

    Well, hopefully he’ll get straightened out – for his sake AND his family’s.
