This is one of the greatest stories I have read in a long time. Imagine Idaho producing a bona fide opera star. And she is warm, genuine, charming, and emphatically not a diva but a committed professional. Ms. Lopez, felicitaciones!
I wish Jeff was the model for our political culture here in Idaho. Thinking a bill through. What a novel concept?
I knew Lloyd Pendleton, back in Dearborn, Michigan. I can say.......that he is a good man! I am thrilled that he is taking time out of his life to help the Homeless. My prayers for the Homeless are being heard. Thanks also to Greg Morris.
Jeff is my uncle, He is a pretty RAD dude.
Nicest guy ever.
Jeff's a great guy, responsive to user concerns, and he provides a great service. Thanks for this article.
I have nothing but love and respect for Melissa Wintrow~she is smart, caring, approachable and TENACIOUS! ! After having the pleasure of watching Melissa and the other 1st year Dems at the Add The Words hearings I can say she WILL create some inspiring and amazing change in the legislature.
Melissa is the real thing: Iron Will and Caring Heart! Meet her Tuesday February 10 at 7 PM, Town Hall, Riverglen Jr. High, 6801 N Gary Lane, Boise.
Love you Melissa Wintrow!
The article left out Lorenzo Romar, one of the icons of the sport. Coach Garson was mentored by Romar, Majerus and Howland: that is a pedigree that few will ever see. It is like Socrates, Plato and Einstein. Throw in his Mom and Dad and there is no wonder why he is news worthy with humility on a regular basis. Great for the Yotes- better hang on to him.
So much love and respect for Coach Garson. Go Yotes!
Just try to get a hold of someone at Your Health Idaho, good luck. "We will call you back" is their line. There is only one number to call them. You cannot call Pat Kelly's office, there is no number on line, no email address, etc., to his office. Our insurance agent says Your Health Idaho is a mess. It is. They have sent us 10 letters all with conflicting information, no dates on any of the letters and incorrect information.
It is our hope that an investigative reporter will expose this mess.
Any Idaho governmental agency that refuses to provide the public with statistical evidence of their success and or failure is doing a disservice to all Idahoans.
From brief stint as North End board president to brief stint in legislature; from brief stint in legislature to candidate for state office; from candidate for state office to considering going for a city council position. I am concerned about this only because the serial pursuit of public positions and roles might be wisely traded for staying in one role and doing something significant there. My advice to Holli would be to stop listening to all the praise heaped upon her for being a serial public servant, and roll up your sleeves and get something real and lasting done. Then build from there. The non-profit sounds like a good idea.
I voted for her. I perceived her relative lack of experience in government to be somewhat of a liability, but I was NOT in favor of the "poster boy for the Good Old Boys" taking the office. (Do you s'pose he'll take his greatly-increased taxpayer-funded pension? Good one, huh?)
IMO, it should be easy for qualified citizens to vote - ONCE. However, it's rather naive to ignore the reality of voter fraud that is rampant in some jurisdictions across the Fruited Plain. I have no problem with efforts to ensure that registered voters vote once, and once only. The ID requirement doesn't seem too burdensome to me. Fingerprint scanners? At every polling place? I can't see that happening. But on the other hand, maybe Otter can let out a big contract to some high-tech crony who donated to his campaign, for the infrastructure.
While the state-wide status quo is very sad to me, Holli's words and her commitment to serving the people of Idaho sure did lift my spirits.
I voted for you. I will vote for you again.
Those who supported Southern slavery were wrong to appeal to the Bible for support. They had none. An honest, full reading of the Bible though leaves no doubt what it teaches regarding homosexuality. Rev Gaddy does not supply nor support an alternate interpretation. He makes a sweeping generalization that apparently all Christians who disagree with his interpretation are guilty of being biased in their reading of the Bible. Who is to say Rev Gaddy is not biased? Finally, the vast majority of Christians who disapprove of homosexuality do not hate homosexuals or feel they have no value. I am equally opposed to adultery (heterosexual) yet I don't hate adulterers or believe they have no value. You can be morally opposed to something without hating it.
The same thing was true with slavery and it appears that the same thing is true with LGBT rights: People go to the Bible with minds already made up about what it supposedly says. They see just enough in the text to support their point of view and say, "This is the word of God."
I am so sorry that this man isn't our next Secretary of State. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much better than Denney.
My name is Clyde Ruddock and I want to thank everyone that I have come in contact with since I have been going there. I would like to especial thank Kerri Moorehead in scheduling as I feel that she has gone above and beyond in helping me get the cataract surgery I needed so badly. I have not met anyone at the Boise Medical center that has been anything but wonderful. I sincerely appreciate a
ll the great things you are all doing for the Veterans. Sincerely Clyde Ruddock
