    Letter: National monument

    We have a special backyard here in Central Idaho and we need to guarantee that our backyard stays that way. To me, there is nothing like getting out of town and into the mountains to find solace, inspiration and joy. Having the Boulder-White Clouds so close makes it possible for me to find these...

    Letter: Sidewalks

    In my opinion, sidewalks add beauty and finish to the streets of a community. It is my effort to promote sidewalks for Boise. We have many streets that do not have sidewalks.

    Letter: Gil Gilbertson

    Recently, Gil Gilbertson passed away, and his passing brought back many memories. He was the most outstanding hospital leader who ever graced the city of Boise.
