On a nonprofit note: why don’t St. Luke’s and Saint Alphonsus provide free day care to their employees as part of a benefit package? Are they that stingy?
There is a lot of construction going on in Ada County and all over, so what measures have been taken to protect seniors from an ever-increasing homeowners tax when they reach retirement?
Why is there no public funding of Head Start? Idaho needs it: single parents, low wages — that in part was why it was founded in the first place, to give these kids a “head start.” Wouldn’t this create more jobs? Early socialization is generally good for children — they see kids their size and want to interact.
Tell me what good it accomplishes by withholding Head Start funding? Opportunity starts young, don’t cast them away.
