    Letter: Obamacare

    How can President Obama claim a "win" for his health insurance plan when we are penalized for not registering. How does that make it a win? If this had been a great plan for so many, we would have bought in to this months ago. I also find it interesting that Obama pushes for a plan for us that he...

    Letter: POW/MIAs

    It is difficult for me to understand why Congressman Raul Labrador refuses to support our POW/MIAs. He has been asked many times to co-sponsor HR 231. This resolution calls upon the U.S. Congress and President Obama to establish a select committee. This committee would investigate and once and for...

    Letter: Governor Otter

    Our "honorable" governor, on a campaign swing around the state, said he's proud of what has been accomplished in the last few years, but added that there's more work to do. Proud.

    Letter: Obamacare

    I have been reading and following the letters about Obamacare and how we as a people are being forced to buy something we don't want. I keep seeing how "this is the first time government has forced one to buy something they don't want" and how this is stepping on our freedoms. And if you don't buy...

    Letter: Urban sprawl

    Boise and the surrounding areas have been identified by various national publications as a fast-growing, family-friendly, livable place to plant roots. While it is exciting that outsiders now see the wonders of the area, the growth that follows must be carefully facilitated. To avoid the urban sprawl...

    Letter: Single parenting

    Many believe America is in decline. They cite poverty (up 44 percent), crime and illiteracy. All three have a common root - single parenting and the breakdown of the family and the home. Broken homes and broken families are the primary breeding grounds for America's crime, illiteracy and poverty...

    Letter: Climate change

    An IPCC call to action. The latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report mentioned in Seth Borenstein's "Global Warming Dials up our Risks" (Mar. 30) adds to the preponderance of opinion that climate change must be addressed. Prior this latest IPCC report, a recent report by the...
