No crime has been committed, and the person who loses their rights does not get to defend themselves before those rights are removed. It’s not due process if you aren’t part of the process, or if you have to petition to get your guns back.
The College of Idaho is the most diverse 50 acres in Idaho. We have students from 47 different countries who provide a valuable lens from which multiple perspectives are formed, discussed and experienced.
In 1967, Idaho enacted legislation to insulate judicial appointments from politics and cronyism. It has worked well and resulted in a corps of professional judges who decide legal disputes, both civil and criminal, in an even-handed manner.
A “perfect storm” is headed our way, triggered by this city’s metastasizing growth and fueled by over-promotion, under-readiness, and a general air of uncertainty about the direction Boise is headed. Here’s what city leaders can do.
Proof that Boise is a welcoming community: Following the knife attack on refugee children and adults in Boise Idaho at a birthday party, residents gathered to support for the families stabbed with rallies, prayers and fundraising for the victims.
The historic Cabin was built for the State Forester in 1939 to commemorate the state’s 50th anniversary, is again threatened. Not one of the proposed plans for the new library includes it in the design — ignoring an authentic part of the city’s heritage.
Our ballot measure is simple. It allows Idahoans who earn less than $17,000 a year to get health care with Medicaid expansion and ensures that families in the coverage gap will have access to essential health care like cancer treatments and heart medication.
The president did not invent coarse and destructive public commentary, but he has certainly perfected the technique. That does not mean that the rest of us should follow the example. Let’s remember that we were given the precious legacy in the Preamble to the Constitution of forming “a more perfect union.”
Idaho isn’t waiting around for Washington when it comes to communications; it’s taking the lead. My visit made it clear to me that Idaho is a state full of innovative, can-do people who are making our nation’s economy and society stronger.
What makes these tragedies so unnecessary is there’s already a process in place for migrants legitimately seeking asylum in the U.S.. They can show up at any embassy, consulate or U.S. port of entry to make their asylum claims.
While the Chinden lane was abandoned, The Netherlands and Denmark continued on with protected bike lanes as a standard. As a result, they are the safest countries in the world for bicycling, and have some of the happiest motorists.
As the owner of Bestbath, which employs 180 Idahoans in Caldwell, I am ready to speak up. In a democracy, it is our duty to hold our three separate and equal branches of government accountable. Separating toddlers and young children from their parent(s) and/or guardian(s) in an attempt to gain a negotiating edge in funding “The Wall” is morally corrupt.
“Local” has different meanings to different people. It’s no surprise, because there is no official definition of “local” food. This places the burden with consumers, who must determine which definition of “local” their retailer is using.
My husband and I, like most married couples, work together to make both our careers work; one is not subservient to the other, nor should it be. We decide together how to allocate our resources in support of each other, as we should.
After cleaning up everything being stored above our Snake River aquifer, it is ironic that our U.S. government now wants to send Hanford, Wash., waste to Idaho in order to prepare it for shipment to New Mexico.
We have always been strongest when working in partnership with our closest allies. We are nearing a dangerous point in our relations when our partners feel they have no choice but to protect their own national interests by countering ours.
While it is important to weigh the financial impacts of expanding Medicaid eligibility, money isn’t the only measuring stick Idaho should use. As a Medicaid researcher and physician-in-training, I know that Medicaid offers real benefits to the people who rely on it.
