MONTPELIER – About 30 people tore themselves away from the mid-summer beauty of the Bear Lake region to attend IDOG’s 12th open meetings and open records seminar, the latest stop in our road show.

Hosted by News-Examiner Editor Rosa Moosman, the July 19 session was held at the atmospheric National Oregon Trail Center in Montpelier, which includes a well-equipped theater, in addition to a fascinating museum of pioneer and settler artifacts.

Evaluations collected from the audience indicate a strong need for IDOG’s program. One hundred percent said they learned something they can put to use and 100 percent said they would recommend the seminar to others in jobs similar to their own. Asked to compare it to other seminars, 70 percent of the respondents rated the seminar “excellent.”

The popularity of the melodrama-style acting in the skits worked well, with a few players showing hammy tendencies and others just reading the scripts.

This was the last seminar of IDOG’s summer season, but more are in store in the future.
