Signed, sealed

Not sure why it needs to take so long - the deal was cut in 2003, the provisions met for a while now - but the Nez Perce Snake River deal has now been signed.

It's a major agreement, and one of the more significant developments in Idaho so far in this decade. It is, as much as anything else, a shift away from what might have been: A big, bitter lawsuit that could have seriously upended much of the state of Idaho, and/or the Nez Perce tribe. Today, both can call that a bullet averted.
