Mohave County woman, widow of Oregon standoff leader LaVoy Finicum, carries on mission

SALEM, Ore. Leaders of an armed occupation of a federal wildlife refuge in rural Oregon were driving to a public meeting a year ago when police shot and killed one of them at a roadblock.

Now, LaVoy Finicum's widow and their children are planning to hold that meeting later this month in the same town, John Day. Speakers are slated talk about the Constitution, property rights and other issues.

"It is the anniversary of my husband's death. We want to continue with his mission," said Jeanette Finicum, a resident of Cane Beds in northern Mohave County. "The people within counties and states should decide how to use those properties, not the federal government."

LaVoy Finicum was the spokesman for several dozen occupiers during the 41-day takeover of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge and has become a martyr for the movement to transfer ownership of federal lands to local entities. The U.S. government owns nearly half of all land in the West, compared with 4 percent in other states, according to the Congressional Overview of Federal Land Ownership.

1. Is stupidity a genetic trait?

I feel sorry for the children because it sounds as if both parents have the stupidity gene. And not as a recessive trait.

4. I think I spotted the problem.

The article says that she was a stay-at-home mom for all 23 years that she was married to LaVoy. Between listening to her husband and listening to Fox News her brain received zero stimulation.
