    Letter: Censored book

    I write to your newspaper to promote human decency. The controversy over "The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian" isn't just about this book. It's about when a boundary will be set that doesn't allow a book on our sophomore English reading list that touts masturbation, pornography and racist...

    Letter: Test scores

    If we were to perform at the Olympic Games as well as we placed on the educational scoreboard, all hell would break loose. We placed 24 out of 26.

    Letter: Doctrine

    Ralph Nielsen's correction of a letter by Mark Garlock in the faith column says that the Christian doctrine of the Trinity is not found in the Bible and defined in Council of Nicea in 325 A.D.

    Letter: Morality, democracy

    The March 19 letter from Opal Ward is representative of other misguided efforts to define morality and democracy through personal religious leanings. We all have a right to live life as we deem fit, but not to force on others an environment that conforms only to our views for our (religious or otherwise...

    Letter: Politicians

    Exhibit A: Russ Fulcher. First he backs the GOP closed primary system, then asks Democrats to register Republican and vote for him despite the fact he stands to the right of Otter. What? Then he claims Medicaid expansion is a terrible mistake, ignoring that his nonplan will cost the Idaho taxpayers...

    Letter: Dogs and the Foothills

    Dog owners: We are in a very precarious position with our right to take our dogs into the Foothills. Pick up after your dog! If you don't, we will all lose the privilege of taking our dogs out to run free. Don't be selfish. If you see some other dog's poop, pick it up. It won't kill you.
