The Rocky Mountain Poetry Festival, still going two decades later
By Michael Corrigan
Possibly the Rocky Mountain Poetry Festival started unofficially in 1982 with a poetry reading staged at the Stanrod House, an impressively elegant "pioneer" mansion once used by the community for public events. With its wide wooden floor, ornate rooms and stairway, one could feel the ghosts from time past.
Several pieces of the plaza are still being prepped for full operation, however, including the Main Street Station multi-modal transit center, which is set to begin bus service the morning of Monday, Oct. 24.
The Ada County Sheriff's Office says the Kuna robbery suspect is a white male with black hair, mid-30s, approximately 5 feet 8 inches tall. He was wearing a dark-colored hoodie, blue jeans and a blue hat.
