Andi Elliott: Fishy Smell in Jefferson County

December 13th, 2013 by Halli

by Andi Elliott

I grew up on the James River…a 5 mile wide river deep enough to host ocean going ships. My sister and I along with our Dad spend many an hour fishing. Great memories! The smell of the salt water and the feel of the spray on our faces are still vivid in my mind. I remember too the smell of fish…dead fish rotting on the beaches. The brain never forgets a smell like that.

But that smell resurfaced as I read the Jefferson Star’s article on Sheriff Blair Olsen. Blair became chair of the Idaho Police Officer and Standards Council in 2011 and his term is up in January. But Olsen resigned….3 months early. All of a sudden Olsen is too busy and resigns? And why are we hearing about it 5 weeks later? Is it a coincidence that it coincides with the current investigation of our sheriff by the Idaho Attorney General’s office?

I’d like to think that the impetus was my complaints to POST about Olsen urging someone to file a false complaint about me, or perhaps it was the statement made by one of his deputys that they were out to shut me down, or maybe it’s because charges were filed against me without viewing the evidence.

Well, whatever the reason, he’s done at POST. Now let’s see what the ongoing AG’s investigation reveals…if Prosecutor Dunn allows the information to be made public. Darn, can’t get rid of that fishy smell.
