On our slowest of news days, we can always count on Alternate Energy Holdings Inc. The would-be nuclear developer keeps coming back like Rasputin. After getting its tail kicked out of Elmore County, being the subject of a federal probe from the Securities and Exchange Commission, its officers crying that their company "was dying" and its own lawyers claiming that they're owed $700,000, AEHI CEO Don Gillispie still insists that he'll bring untold prosperity to the Gem State. Apparently, Payette County commissioners agree: They overruled their own Planning and Zoning Commission in February, giving AEHI a green light to move forward with its plan to build a nuclear power plant.
