TWIN FALLS OFFICIALS QUIZ KNIEVEL ABOUT PLANS FOR SNAKE RIVER CANYON JUMP

Twin Falls County commissioners want Robbie Knievel to tell them about promotion, planning and profits before they let the daredevil attempt to fly over the Snake River Canyon in a one-man rocket.

In the 62-item questionnaire released Tuesday, commissioners ask whether Knievel intends to make "good will" visits to Twin Falls before and after the jump, when he can do the event, what support crew he'll need and how much of a cut the county will get in video, movie and book deals.Knievel, of Salt Lake City, has until April 6 to give his answers, but Commissioner Jim Fraley said he wouldn't be surprised if the 29-year-old daredevil asks for extra time.

Other questions ask whether Knievel has business partners and what he's earned from motorcycle jumping in the past five years.

Knievel also must tell what his responsibility will be for spectator safety, security, crowd control and fire protection.

Fraley said the three commissioners and consultant Steve Leroy drew up the questions.
