Babcock letter: Forgotten Idaho birthday

I’ve been reading the Idaho Statesman for 30 plus years. Please correct me if I’m wrong. Idaho became the 43rd state of the United States of America on July 3, 1890, making July 3, 2016, Idaho’s 126th birthday anniversary. What a great territory and state that played an important role in the development of the West, and the United States, and too bad that the Idaho Statesman decided not to have one word mentioning this achievement in their July 3, 2016, Sunday edition.
