I recall he was either disciplined or charged with some fairly serious wrongdoing when he was a State Representative. Does this mean someday in the future we can look forward to the Honorable Kent Harris memorial bridge or park too?

I knew Zane personally. He was a good man. He deserves every thing his name is on. Zane passed having done more for this county than anyone I know. Its easy to pick on a man, no matter how great he is or was, if he cannot defend himself. Shame on you!
