1. Here’s a story Kevin Krause probably didn’t have to work too hard to get: “County commissioners don’t agree with DA’s budget stance.” He probably could have written the quotes from Ken Mayfield, et al., and no one would have noticed. He also won’t have to work too hard on the follow-up from Watkins’ side, or the follow-up to the follow-up, or the follow-up to the follow-up to the follow-up, and so on. Basically, everyone involved just gave Kevin Krause a paid vacation for the next two weeks.
