Re: “Idaho's New Prison Scandal

None of this corruption could have gone on unless Butch Otter wanted it to go on. The minuscule fine levied against CCA for their many years of cheating the state, and thereby the taxpayers, is proof positive of that. He certainly didn't want that bunch turning state's evidence on him. They had given him $20,000 in campaign contributions and spread a lot more around on Republican legislative leadership.

Re: “The Wheel Deal: Is Boise's Future Rail or Rubber?

ACHD and other local transportation agencies do use and have used property taxes, impact fees and other methods to fund a portion of their system for a long time. On the other hand, Idaho Transportation Department roads are funded almost entirely by a "user pay" system.

There are some who contend that the Federal Gas Tax was never intended to be used for anything other than roads and bridges. However, some of it is diverted to other sources such as transit. I think that is a bad thing to do. Let the gas tax and registration fees pay for roads and bridges and find other sources to pay for transit.

I am not against transit/public transportation. I am against paying for it with gas tax and/or registration fees. My primary concern with the article was that it stated that the manufacturers of automobiles were directly subsidized by the government and that led to the demise of many transit systems. That is not correct. However, one could contend that the recent bailout of GM and Chrysler was a subsidy. I might not argue with that contention. That had nothing to do with the demise of many transit systems though.

Re: “Foodborne Fuss: The Boise Co-op Looks Ahead Following Salmonella Outbreak

Standards are set to be able to trust the food you buy, don't give you food poisoning or Salmonella. Also being a Member of Boise co-op and paying a higher price for healthier products, is also considered a higher standard to trust your food is safe to eat.

Not worried about salmonella. I don't buy anything at the Co-Op deli because it's all ridiculously overpriced.

Re: “Idaho's New Prison Scandal

Interesting how a reporter can be so bias in a report. The majority of the article focuses on one side/opinion. Hey tip - shouldn't articles be unbiased in there positioning? Get all the facts from both sides!

Re: “Idaho's New Prison Scandal

Do we have enough citizens in the State of Idaho who are competent enough to do something about the disgracefulness around them or are they too busy trying to maintain their glassy-eyed positive thinking?

Re: “Foodborne Fuss: The Boise Co-op Looks Ahead Following Salmonella Outbreak

Actually, it is NOW probably one the SAFEST places you could eat having just gone through this whole process. I am sure that there is a hyper-vigilant practice of food safety and worker hygiene.

Re: “Idaho's New Prison Scandal

My little brother tore his miniscus while in IDOC (tendon in the knee) they have YET to fix it and it has now started to heal terribly. They classified him as black though he's native American so he gets in fights constantly because he's not actually black (blacks attack him) and because he's classified as black in the paperwork (whites and mexicans). These places are horrible. And while we NEED them, they need to be better run

Re: “Foodborne Fuss: The Boise Co-op Looks Ahead Following Salmonella Outbreak

Speaking as someone who spent about 48 hours in a 3-4 day window in bed sleeping and dealing with the joyous ramifications of the Salmonella sandwich I ate I still love the Boise Co-op. Will I be eating a sandwich from their deli anytime soon... probably not, but they still are an excellent member of our community. It is a shame to see people making a cash grab trying to sue. =(

Re: “Foodborne Fuss: The Boise Co-op Looks Ahead Following Salmonella Outbreak

Yes, seeking damages for medical bills not covered by private insurance, lost wages, is reasonable. What is NOT, however, is 'shortened life span,' etc. Come on, linking a single bout of salmonella to a decreased life expectancy. Show me the evidence there.

Re: “Foodborne Fuss: The Boise Co-op Looks Ahead Following Salmonella Outbreak

Toughen up? Yeah, those people totally have no right to seek reimbursement for the medical bills, lost wages, and severe inconvenience they suffered due to the negligence of the Co-op. In case you couldn't tell, that was sarcasm. Just because they are a local business does not mean they shouldn't have to face the consequences of their actions. Their negligence in the kitchen put peoples lives at risk. They are truly lucky someone didn't die. It's great they are attempting to bounce back, but I can promise I won't be returning anytime soon.

Re: “Foodborne Fuss: The Boise Co-op Looks Ahead Following Salmonella Outbreak

The people suing the Co-op should be ashamed of themselves. Just out for the quick and easy buck. As for the guy mentioned by the other poster, I'm sure he's fine. Toughen up people!!!!

Re: “Foodborne Fuss: The Boise Co-op Looks Ahead Following Salmonella Outbreak

"Since the outbreak, each member of the deli staff has undergone retraining and 11 deli employees have been enrolled in ServSafe food safety training at Life's Kitchen."

WHERE WAS THE LEADERSHIP ON THIS ONE, HOW DID THE CO-OP's EMPLOYEES GO SO LONG BEING UNTRAINED?! I PERSONALLY KNOW A PERSON THAT WAS POISONED BY A TURKEY SANDWICH FROMT HE CO-OP, WHAT A WEEK OF HELL. IF IT'S THE SAME PEOPLE WORKING IN THE DELI, HOW IS THE PUBLIC SUPPOSED TO SUPPORT THE CO-OP? HOME TOWN PRIDE?!

Re: “Away, Away, Away Down South in Idaho

Slavery was only one issues. It’s an over simplification North Carolina almost seceded earlier because of high tariffs The North didn't want cheap goods coming in from overseas because of manufacturing. All of the taxes came from the south. The North was not fighting to free the slaves but to preserve their economy. They did not free the slaves with the emancipation proclamation. The slaves were not freed until the 13th amendment passed. Grant a had slaves that were not freed until 2 years after Lee freed his slaves. 95% of the common southern soldier had no slaves and were fighting for freedom from Northern oppression just as the US rebelled against Britain. They already had a plan in place to free the slaves within 5 years. The majority of people who fly the rebel flag do not use it as a symbol of racism nor are they racist. They are simple people who believe in freedom and are proud to be from the south. Should they remove it from state buildings yes they should. But they should not remove it from historical monuments or ban it from being sold by retailers or displayed in public. Censorship is wrong.

Re: “Away, Away, Away Down South in Idaho

This is a ridiculous stretch of the imagination that Idaho has any real connection with the South. I live in the South and to most southerners, you have to point to a map to even show someone where Idaho is. "Somewhere out west." Additionally, your African American population is so minuscule that you don't have to see the pain and fear on your neighbors' faces whenever they have to encounter that symbol of hate. The flag itself did not gain prominence historically until the horrendous Jim Crow days, long after the war was over. Don't get sucked into something shameful, Idaho.

Re: “Idaho's Fireworks Paradox

It's 1AM now. Still can't sleep. Children still crying. Every night it is something. Boise is the LOUDEST scumbag city we have ever lived in! And EXPENSIVE!

People here complain about California and other States. Then say it's beautiful, quiet, and cheap here.

We are moving back to Cali or NY, where rent costs half as much, and it's QUIET and the citizens have RIGHTS!
