Re: “Resistance is Textile: Inside the Boise State Exhibition 'Crafting Resistance'

In response to previous comments: They remind me of the hateful way my brother was treated and harassed when the US Navy sent him to Idaho to be schooled and trained to be stationed as an engineman on the first nuclear submarine, The USS Nautilus (SSN-571). It appears that some residents of Idaho are still as bigoted and ignorant as they were way back in the 1950s. Does anyone remember "Archie Bunker"?

Re: “Ted Challenger on His Past, the China Blue Stabbing and Tighter Security

It is interesting to me that Ted will invest in the equipment necessary to scan IDs and do a background check for a club goer to enter the premise but refuses to invest in a simple wand metal detector that would deter weapons and keep the club safer. Why Ted?

Re: “They Pledge Allegiance: Foreign Born, Americans All

I have to ask, when Obama executed the Visa Waiver Program Improvement and Terrorist Travel Prevention Act of 2015, was anyone who are concerned about the same travel restrictions saying anything in public back then? See this...https://sethfrantzman.com/2017/01/28/obama…

Re: “They Pledge Allegiance: Foreign Born, Americans All

With any luck, we can settle so many refugees in our area, that our culture will become more diverse, and a lot less redneck. I would MUCH rather see more Syrian refugees and less right-wing nutbags refugees from more liberal states. Congratulations to the new Idahoans...live long and prosper.

Re: “Downtown Deep Freeze

Clearly achd should be abolished. I saw a newscast earlier in the year where they were interviewed by a new station regarding snow plows. I was astonished at the persons who is in charge of this operation response, basically he said, what are we supposed to do just have truck sitting around in the parking lot waiting around for the possibility of a snowstorm... Unsatisfactory is how I found that response. I believe it was within two days we were in a blizzard and I thought of that stupid comment or rather a careless comment from the individual. We live in a snow state, there is absolutely no excuse for not being prepared clearly achd was not. The apathy was at a high level all you had to do was walk anywhere downtown to see that that they gave no care or thought to where they were dumping or snow they wiped out all the sidewalks they didn't make any kind of safe passage at crosswalks it was Despicable and beneath contempt and my vote is they need to go.

Re: “The Imbalance of Power

For Idaho Democrat politicians to be elected and succeed they need to couple up with Idaho voters and uncouple from the national party.

Re: “How Agriculture in Ada County is Being Edged Off the Map

It's too late. They ruined it. The developers will never be satisfied and will build, build, build. The country and city governments will keep rubber stamping everything that comes down the pike, and will make phony "plans" that they then disregard. They will continue to make "best place to live" lists until it is no place to live at all. People will continue to move here, and tell all the people they know "how great it is" and half of them will move here too. People will, without any irony whatsoever, complain about how "this place was better when I moved here in 99," and women will continue to put county cow motifs in their suburbian kichens that sit in houses built on former farms. They will continue to bring people here, and then wonder why there's more crime, taxes are higher, roads and schools are crowded, and "there's just no room anymore." Then all these same people will move on and do the same thing yet again- somewhere else.

Re: “Oh, The Places They Went: Boise Officials Racked Up Some Significant Frequent Flier Miles

Conference fees often include cost of banquets and luncheons allowing public employees to exceed cost per meal limits or god forbid, getting reimbursed on expense vouchers for meals covered in conference fees. Scrutiny of conference promotional literature is required to avoid these abuses.

"... each [Boise City Council member] also submitted reports for $180 in mileage reimbursement, indicating all six drove the 314 miles to Sun Valley in separate vehicles."

Re: “How Agriculture in Ada County is Being Edged Off the Map

As I recollect: in the 70's, there was a zoning rule in place that limited development to one home per 20acres of tillable land. The thinking at the time was to protect land in large enough parcels to be attractive to farmers. As the valleys' demographics changed and politics became more urbanized with folks from non-agricultural backgrounds the perceived value of farms and open space diminished. The urban outlook of that day sought a more urbane Boise and did not want to be perceived as "Podunk"or "back woods". Unfortunately the county commission changed as well, becoming overwhelmingly pro-development. At least there is a new discussion starting to push back, I hope. I agree with the previous statement that if we want to save some of what's left it had better happen quickly.
