    Letter: Housing allowance

    Updating wasteful government entitlements. Why is it that any government official would get a housing allowance? Guest ranches offer this in some remote locations to the employees, and for good reason. I see no reason that a government official should use taxpayer money for housing expenses. Seems...

    Letter: Chris Troupis

    It is my desire to share my heart about my highly respected attorney and dear friend of many years, Chris Troupis, who has a true "servant's heart" to represent us as our attorney general. This is a man of sincere integrity, whose heart of faith, caring and generosity reflects in all that he pours...

    Letter: Raven killing

    "Appalled" might be the word that best describes what I felt reading about the proposed killing of ravens. What causes people to believe poison will solve the problem of the sage grouse? It will kill magpies, hawks and other birds as well. Poison is not selective. Rachel Carson, in her book "Silent...

    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.

    Letter: Censorship

    Censorship is a pacifying agent. Surveillance of reading materials enforces the acquiescence to "corporatocracy" in today's society. Students are no longer allowed to question the decision-making powers given to parents and administration alike.

    Letter: Phil McGrane

    It's true, there are four candidates for the very important job of secretary of state. It is also true there is only one experienced candidate, Phil McGrane. The other three are experienced politicians. My choice was clear, even before Ben Ysursa, whom I respect, endorsed Phil McGrane. Please ...

    Letter: Global warming

    How global warming alarmists are like the religious leaders in the days of Galileo.

    Letter: Selfish reform

    Since many Americans feel an irresistible need to reform anything with which they disagree, I have a suggestion saving religious reformers a lot of time and angst: a new religion - the unrepentant assembly of the secular trinity - me, myself and I. This should definitely appeal to many people because...
