    Letter: Can't have both

    After reading the article on how Idahoans want road maintenance done but don't want higher gas taxes, I was struck by a disturbing thought: It seems Idahoans want to have their cake and eat it, too. They want to have their cake of low taxes, but want to eat the cake of well-maintained infrastructure...

    Letter: Gov. Evans

    In 1983, an epic battle erupted between the state of Idaho and Idaho Power Co. over the company's water rights at its Swan Falls dam. That resulted from a November 1982 decision of the Idaho Supreme Court, which appeared to give the power company control of the full flow of the river at that location...

    Letter: Sarah Pearce

    Watching the July 11 Linda LeBrane story on NBC's "Dateline" should be mandatory for every resident of Canyon County.

    Letter: Independent doctors

    We read with interest Carl Rizzo's letter regarding his medical care. He appears to have had an unfortunate experience that hopefully does not reflect the standard of care in Idaho.

    Letter: Immigrants

    Why is it that Canada can secure their borders, they screen everyone there, better than the USA. If you try crossing the border of Egypt and Israel and also among other countries in the Middle East, you will be shot. With all due respect I feel we should do the same. If not that, then send them ...

    Letter: Minimum wage

    The wisdom of Democratic candidate for Congress, Richard Stallings, his fellow candidates and the Idaho Democratic Party has been questioned by pundits for making raising the minimum wage one of their top priorities in the present campaign. These pundits count on minimum wage workers to be too consumed...

    Letter: Republicans

    We should not be surprised that Republicans are opposing the Affordable Care Act because that is what they do. They opposed Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, unemployment compensation, the right to form labor unions, government-guaranteed student loans, child labor laws, minimum wage, workplace...

    Letter: Immigration

    The mantra of our masters is "Comprehensive Immigration Reform." This is blatant amnesty. This is cover for "not" repelling the invasion of the United States and our slow, cancerous, cultural destruction.
