This is in Saint Maries, Idaho as I pass through on my 2010 bicycle tour.
In Washington some of the school construction funds have come from timber dollars in a special budget. As forest lands have been taken out of production, some of the school construction money has had to come from other budgets.
That's Washington politics at least. I don't know about Idaho, but Saint Maries is sure a logging town.
Tomorrow, I hope to ride some miles on Trail of the Coeur D' Alenes. It's a great bike trail that I rode on in 2005. This time, I only plan to ride from around Harrison, ID. to I-90.
