    Letter: Holli Woodings

    Holli Woodings is running for Idaho secretary of state with a charming little populist campaign. In a time when multimillion-dollar campaigns are the norm, it is refreshing to receive an email asking for $10 for gas money to drive to the next event. Holli will protect our freedom to vote. She will...

    Letter: Ferguson

    I am in Lorain, Ohio, 30 miles west of Cleveland. This morning's radio subject was Ferguson: Could it happen in one of several Cleveland suburbs that are mirror images of Ferguson, with a majority of African-American residents, where public safety and political officials are caucasian?

She suggested that a panel of 10 people be chosen...

    Letter: Political DUI

    Gov. Rick Perry of Texas was on the news describing his loss of confidence in county District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg because she had been charged with a DUI. He called upon her to resign for her outrageous behavior. I wonder what he thinks about the good citizens of Idaho, who elected a governor...

    Letter: Equality

    This country is made up of people of many religions. Even within the Christian religion there are hundreds of sects with differing beliefs.

    Letter: Statesman 150

    Back from vacation, especially thrilled to have the 150 stunning edition of the Statesman. Especially the section "Distinguished Citizens," as Sunday, July 18, 1971, my daughter Karen Farnsworth, then age 17, was honored with the statement:
