Brad Little and Director of the Idaho Department of Agriculture, Celia Gould. “Hi Zippy, and welcome to Idaho. This old Georgia boy didn’t know much about Idaho.” The president got a briefing on the growing concern of the quagga muscle invasion into Western water supplies. DuVall also had a private meeting with Owyhee rancher Tim Lowery who has spent years in litigation with the federal government over stock water rights on public grazing. The discussion ended with a promise from the president. “Your story, I promise you, will live on with me once I leave here. We will continue to pay it as much attention as we can, especially in front of the right people."
