ANDRUS CANCELS ICL DINNER APPEARANCE
Former four term Idaho governor and Interior Secretary Cecil D. Andrus on the orders of his doctor has cancelled a trip to Coeur d'Alene on Thursday where he was scheduled to introduce another former Interior secretary, former Arizona Governor Bruce Babbitt.
Governor Babbitt is the featured speaker at a Idaho Conservation League dinner honoring one of the founders of Idaho's leading conservation organization, the late Scott Reed.
In a brief statement sent to Idaho media¸ Andrus spokesperson Chris Carlson, the former governor's long-time press secretary, said "Governor Andrus has been ordered by his doctor not to travel nor make any public appearances while being treated for some medical complications resulting from some successful radiation treatments the governor underwent earlier this year."
Carlson added "the 85-year old governor has faced and so far successfully managed several serious health challenges encountered by people as they age. He knows and appreciates the best wishes of many Idahoans and regrets any inconvenience this cancellation may have caused but he intends to follow the doctor's orders. There will be no further comment unless there is a major change in his status."
