Re: “BYU-Idaho Bans 'Man Buns' On Campus

Re: “JUMP, Explained (Somewhat)

I wish Mr. Simplot had bestowed upon Boise something more vital and lasting than an oddly designed building where cooking classes and fingerpainting are taught. His millions might have helped endow a proper public transit system for this community, or a decent baseball stadium that might have helped revitalize downtown and given the youth of the community a center for athletics. He might have helped connect Boise to the West Coast by high speed rail line or underwritten much-needed historic preservation. Instead, we got a modernist structure and a tractor museum where -- years after ground was first broken -- no one can still seem to figure out what it really is.

And I'm sorry, the very fact that there are college ratings of who is hottess is appalling. I'm sure Jesus would be so proud.

Re: “BYU-Idaho Bans 'Man Buns' On Campus

@Amy Weir
Clearly you are the moron here, considering the title of this article clearly says BYU-Idaho. As in BYU-I in Rexburg, Idaho.

Also, it is clear that his grammar, spelling, and correct use of punctuation is far superior than your own. Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones.

Re: “JUMP, Explained (Somewhat)

I hope there's areas geared more towards children. It would be nice to have a playroom for them!

Also is there a date set? Or maybe a month? Or even a year set?!?!

Re: “Boise Set to Renew Contract to House Suspects at Ada County Jail

Interesting that inmates also pay $35 per day. That's a gross profit of $105 per inmate per day, plus "booking fee". Seems that locking people up is a very lucrative business. Though, it was my understanding, that it's illegal to profit off of crime, in any way.

$70 per inmate, per day. In the real world, that's the price of a nice hotel room and a couple of modest meals. Considering the conditions in jail; poor quality food, threadbare bedding and then add in the profit from commissary, phone calls, SILD program et al, it seems to me that the Sheriff's office is making a pretty penny at the expense of the tax payer, the City of Boise and those who find themselves on the unfortunate side of the law, without giving much back in return.

Once upon a time, they called this brigandry but it seems sometimes, that words lose their meaning.

The jail houses 1,217 inmates. Jail deputies also run alternative sentencing programs like work release, labor detail, and community service, all at a fee for those convicted.

Re: “Twin Falls Legislator Pushes Back Against Refugee Resettlement

One thing to note: The government has said that THEY have NO way to vette the refugees, specifically Syrian. So Carol and others who chastise others need to do to do the same of doing your homework. That is why a large part of Americans do NOT want them here, because it is a guarantee that there ARE terrorists using this huge relocation to get into OUR nation. That also means that they are in YOUR backyards as well. You want facts, how about Sharia Law over-ruling OUR nations laws just because they feel they have the right. Look at Texas. Its one thing to try and assimilate when you live in another country. It IS their choice to come here, for safety or whatever the reason. It is THEIR responsibility to learn and follow OUR countries laws, not their their own. There are innocents but there are also those who will do all they can to continue the war that has been going on in Syria and other countries, and ARE bringing it to America! Think on that. The safety of America is no longer, that for generations we have lived comfortably. We can no longer just be complacent!

Re: “Boise State Fine Arts Building: Where Will All the Parking Go?

A Disney blue building on Capitol Boulevard is going to stand out like a sore them and take away from our beloved State Capitol. I can appreciate the University wanting to make a branding statement, but at what cost to the overall experience of the boulevard where the focus should be on the capital. That blue is terribly unfortunate.

Re: “(Not) For Profit

I was the Director of MRI Center of Idaho for it's first sixteen years and grew that to a 15 magnet operation from Boise to Seattle and all points elsewhere in the Northwest. We were know nationally for our MRI quality

I reported to the Board of Directors that included the hospitals in Nampa, Caldwell and was instrumental in bringing Holy Rosary on board. That board included 5 of the best physcians in Boise. I created the documentation trail that led the jury to it's verdict. I was deposed by 6 attorneys for 2 full days.

Sandra Bruce got exactly what she deserved. I know Roger Curran turn over in his grave the day that verdict was announced. God Bless you Roger, you were the best.

Re: “Peter Wollheim, Idaho Mental Health Champion, Dies

I just heard the news last night where I met up with an associate of Peter's and mine. I am still in shock to receive such news from such a distinguished gentleman as Peter. He helped me find peace and laughter in my own shadowed time; I could only hope that an angel is there to guide him to find his. Much love and light to the Wolheims.
