Willis tells Kempthorne about land offer

Before appearing Tuesday night before the Friedman Memorial Airport Authority to offer free land for a new airport, actor Bruce Willis reportedly called Idaho Gov. Dirk Kempthorne to alert him about the offer.

A person close to the airport authority said Willis told the governor that donating the land was his contribution to Kempthorne's Rural Initiative, a program to improve the infrastructure of rural areas, including transportation, communications and utility services.

Mark Snyder, the governor's press secretary, confirmed that he had "heard something" about Willis calling the governor, but did not have any details. He said he would check with Kempthorne. However, by deadline Thursday afternoon, Snyder had not called the Mountain Express.
