Friends and family gathered yesterday to remember one of the four University of Idaho students stabbed to death in their home early Nov. 13, as police in Moscow have yet to identify a suspect in the slayings.  The memorial service for Ethan Chapin was held in Mount Vernon, Washington. The 20 year old was a triplet, and is survived by his parents and his siblings Maizie and Hunter. All three triplets enrolled in the University of Idaho last August.

Following the September special session of the Idaho Legislature, 91 lobbyists were fined by the Idaho Secretary of State’s office for filing late reports.  While the session lasted a single day on Sept. 1, when the Idaho Legislature passed a $1 billion bill that included a tax cut and a $330 million increase for K-12 education funding, most registered lobbyists were still required to submit a report. At last check there are 393 registered lobbyists in Idaho, meaning about 23% of the registered lobbyists were fined.

Yesterday, A hearing took place for Sarah Wondra who arrested in connection with the disappearance of 6 year old Michael Vaughan.  She is charged with failing to report a death.  Police spent most of last week digging in the backyard at the house where Wondra lives.
