POST FALLS — Proponents of a future state veterans home in Post Falls are marching forward in their quest to secure funding for the facility.

Sen. Bob Nonini, R-Coeur d’Alene, said it may be about seven years before the facility is built, unless an appropriations bill before Congress that increases the amount dedicated toward such facilities from $100 million to $200 million is approved.

Letter to the Editor: Senator Nonini’s assistance to our family in a time of crisis and need was invaluable

I received this letter that was submitted to the editor of the Coeur d’Alene Press from a couple that I was able to assist with some insurance issues.

April 30, 2014

My husband and I had a disagreement with our insurance agent and we were faced with a crises. We filed a complaint with the Idaho Department of Insurance in Boise, Idaho. Knowing that we were located in Coeur d Alene, the agent at the Department of Insurance in Boise recommended calling Bob Nonini, he is an “amazing Senator for the people.” So I did call our Senator, Bob Nonini. His wife Cathyanne answered the phone; Bob Nonini talked to me for an hour and a half from his home about our health insurance issue.

I am writing to document who Bob Nonini is and to thank him. More imperative than that, Bob Nonini is an individual who has taken the time, effort and patience to take care of the people in our community.

Thank you Bob.
