Governor Names New Idaho Fish And Game Commissioner
Governor “Butch" Otter has named a 60-year-old Rigby man to the seven-member Idaho Fish and Game Commission. Kenny Anderson will replace Cameron Wheeler of Ririe, whose term expired June 30th. Among the issues Anderson will help decide is management of wolves during the upcoming hunting season. Anderson is the owner of a cabinet and millwork business, as well as an avid sportsman and member of the National Rifle Association. Sen. Steven Bair of Blackfoot, the Republican vice chairman of the Senate Resources and Environment Committee, says Anderson "has no hidden agenda" and aims simply to protect and magnify Idaho's wildlife resources to provide future outdoor opportunities for kids. Otter says among numerous qualified candidates, Ken Anderson stood out as someone with a grasp of the issues and an even temperament.
