Re: “Flotilla of 300-Plus Protest Snake River Dam System

WTF Nothing.... how ridiculous. Kayaks launch on free-flowing rivers all the time. Or do you just live in your mother's basement?

Re: “Flotilla of 300-Plus Protest Snake River Dam System

We were lied to when they put in most of these damn dams. They said that the salmon runs would not be affected.

Zillions of taxpayer and utility payer dollars have gone into hatcheries, restocking and tanker trucking these fish in an attempt to "save" them. It's a travesty.

The damn damns need to go.

If the dam wasn't there, they could not of launch their kayaks.

Re: “Tour de Fat Boise

For such a beautiful sport, it will ALWAYS get ruined by a few (or many) people who find it better to cheat. If you’ve had a car since you first grasped your driving licence, then the idea of commuting on a bike to work can seem a little daunting. You probably haven’t thought about being safe on the road since you passed your cycling proficiency test back when you were 10 years old, in which time you’ve been more concerned with your car’s MPG than with advancements in bike technology. You certainly don’t spend too much time worrying about signalling in a car or being squashed to the kerb either. For whatever reason, you’ve decided to bike to work. Maybe you’ve been enticed in by a tax free bike on the cycle to work scheme, or maybe you just want to burn fat, not your hard earned money on fuel.

Re: “Idaho Mountain Biking League Creates Teams for Teens

Sounds like a great opportunity, with responsible adult leaders. Let's hope they have more success, and common sense than the Boise youth road biking clubs whose adult leaders teach and reinforce riding 3 and 4 abreast, well into motor vehicle lanes, swear and spit at cars that try to pass, and ignore traffic laws.

Re: “Yotes Fever is Back: C of I Beats No. 13 Eastern Oregon in Season Opener

The University of Idaho would be wise to not schedule a football game with the College of Idaho. How humiliating it would be for the "mighty" Vandals to get thumped by the Yotes.

3 Acres? A playground, a walking path, a shaded area with benches for lunching/meeting, and an open area for games, exercise, or gatherings.

Nice piece Jessica. I had to laugh though about one thing... the article says "bull sperm" and I thought you said "beef sperm." I have always thought it's best not to get your sperm(s) mixed up! humor intended... good luck!
