As the Statesman moves ever deeper into digital journalism, we're creating more news and feature videos. I have prepared several in recent months, including stories on what happened to The Shoe Guy at Boise Towne Square and how Idaho's expanding concealed-weapons permissions are helping firearms-training businesses. Among the latest business videos, check out Zach Kyle's "The State of Idaho Unions" and Bill Roberts' "Kids Jump Into Science at Micron Chip Camp."
I just prepared two videos to go with our series on the Top 50 stories since the Statesman's founding 150 years ago. I hope you enjoy "The Oregon Trail in Idaho's Treasure Valley" and "The Chinese Who Came to Idaho."
We value the columns Treasure Valley experts contribute to Business Insider. It's a loss when a regular writer moves on. We say goodbye to two this month.
Lovers of good writing will miss Kathy McIntosh's "Words at Work" column. McIntosh is moving to Tucson, Ariz. She is compiling her columns into a book. Reach her at email@example.com.
Jennifer Banks, who has written "Farming and Ranching" for the past year, is leaving her position at an Eagle agricultural business for local job outside the field.
Their voices will be missed.
