Re: “Treefort 2017: Cassiopeia Plays Haunting Set at Shredder

Hey there, Ben! The correct link for Cassiopeia from SF that played Treefort at the Shredder the other day is https://cassiopeiamusic.bandcamp.com
They are incredible SF artists and I just wanted to point it out so that people can check them out if they didn't get a chance to see their shows in amazing Boise.
You can also find them at: https://www.facebook.com/cassiopeia.bandd/
Thanks so much!

Re: “Donald Trump's Table Manners

So Meals on Wheels funding isn't planned to be cut (" the Trump White House hasn't mentioned any proposed cuts to OAA") and it's unclear what fraction the Feds pay to fund the school lunch program ("It turns out that the federal government only partially pays for school lunches at a CEP school").

Is there any reporting in this story? Could you quantify the cuts on the table, and compare them to the amount funded through non-Federal means?

Re: “City Hall Plaza Renovation Begins, Closing Capitol Blvd. Entrance Until Late August

Boise city's unofficial motto:
"If you can get there, it's not our fault."

More wasted money and congested traffic. They do all they can to close downtown streets, prevent parking downtown, close off necessary streets for ridiculous reasons, and cause traffic congestion with resulting wasted gas, pollution, and short tempers.

Boise hates to have people get downtown, or enjoy being there. How bizarre.

Can't find anything positive to say, so will say nothing, which says it all.

So uplifted to read this! History will judge those who stopped Trump and those who supported him. Write your Congressman or Rep ASAP! Let them know how you feel and vote accordingly. You Rock Kathy Gardner!

Darling Rollercoaster was the most most unexpectedly jaw-dropping act I saw at Treefort 5. So glad they're continuing their trajectory as The Sun and The Mirror.

Re: “After Emotional Hearing, Idaho House Panel OKs Bill to License Sign Language Interpreters

In Michigan, we passed a law that requires all interpreters to be certified through RID (the NIC exam), BEI, or EIPA (for K-12 interpreters). I believe the law has saved lives, and has provided a tool to Deaf people for finally obtaining qualified interpreters. Yes, there have been struggles, as we have a need for more qualified interpreters. I'm still in favor of the law, and I think the natural next step is to focus on increasing the availability of education programs for interpreters.

Re: “Once in a Lifetime

From eclipse2017.org -

Respectfully, professor, you must never have seen a total eclipse! A 90% partial eclipse is by NO MEANS anything CLOSE to seeing the full glory of totality. Boise is NOT a good place to see this eclipse. Please, everyone reading this article - get north into the path. Lots of great info on this is available on the various sites quoted in the comments, including eclipse2017.org.

YOU MUST BE IN THE PATH of totality to see all the wonder of a total eclipse. please do NOT stay in Boise, or you will wonder what all the fuss was about - and you will have missed the show! Get north INTO the path! No joke...

Oh yes, and the filters you need in order to safely view the partial phases of the eclipse cost no more than a dollar or so. Get them now! eclipseglasses.us

Re: “Once in a Lifetime

Also, this year's total solar eclipse will not be the first in Idaho in 99 years. The last one was in February, 1979. The 1918 eclipse was the last one to go across the entire country from Pacific to Atlantic coasts.

Re: “Once in a Lifetime

From the northernmost tip of Craters of the Moon, totality will last 1 min. 14 sec. Traveling a bit further north, to the center line, will increase the time of totality by 80%.
