Former Idaho Gov. and Interior Sec. Cecil Andrus came calling on the Idaho Statesman Editorial Board Tuesday to advocate for greater protection for the Boulder-White Clouds region in Central Idaho. Whether that comes from winning National Monument Status for the region or reviving legislation proposed by Rep. Mike Simpson, R-Idaho, matters not. The 82-year-old Andrus, who served in President Jimmy Carter's cabinet, just wants to see the region gain added protection so generations to come can enjoy it as he has.
