Cope . . .I think I just saw "Red" on TV this morning! You are right. The stuff these people believe in just unbelievable. He was making speech on the White House lawn and kept turning around to face some old fart in a robe and funny hat calling him "Holy Father". He (Red) called today "a beautiful day that the Lord has made" and said that our planet "a gift from God". He then went on to say that we are "children of God". These backwoods, racist, uneducated,bigoted hillbillies and their Bibles. A Lord that "makes days and gives us planets", and we are His "children". WOW! Any way, as it turns out the guys actual name is Barrack Obama and apparently he is President of the United States, with an ivy league education and . . .brace for it . . . he's Black!
Let's face it 'ajax' Dave Bieter's days of representing us are over. He works for the CCDC, and Gardner Company. He will lower the quality of life for his constituents in the valley with his solicitation of making Gowen Field home to the F 15 and/or F35's? For more JOBS?? He comes across as doing more for getting outsiders here than taking care of those that live here and pay taxes. I will say this he did do a good job of representing his constituents in his first term.
yup, them drug addled oreogonians be coming after your daughters in no time.........lol
Interesting @Bill Jefferies... I say good for them though. Next step, plastic grocery bags.
This is a misguided effort. New published research on shows these bans drive people to drink soda not tap water. And more containers of soda, also packaged in PET (but much heavier bottles due to carbonation). Read: http://ajph.aphapublications.org/doi/abs/10.2105/AJPH.2015.302593 There are much better ways to deal with recycling issues.
What debacle was that?
The biological decision to list based on a demonstrated and documented decline in the species in three states? The acknowledgment that over-harvest of old-growth timber (and export of much of that timber to Asia) was forcing an unsustainable cut in the national forests -- a harvest pushed by "get out the cut at any cost" politicians (both Democrat and Republican) in the Congress? The realization that the Northwest was not running out of trees … but it was running out of forests that possessed all the components needed for overall forest health?
Yes, there were serious impacts on timber-dependent communities. Other factors in the spotted owl's decline (competition with barred owls in transformed habitat) were learned in subsequent years. The process of designating critical habitat and drawing up a recovery plan were painful and difficult.
But it was probably the spotted owl experience that brought all players to the table in this latest sage grouse episode. Let's hope the collaboration works -- as it is supposed to -- and how the Endangered Species Act is intended to encourage.
I'd like to think that U.S. Fish and Wildlife learned from it's Spotted Owl listing debacle
well now.....it looks like the donald has lost another vote.......lol
I think this is a great idea, let's just hope that these hydration stations actually dispense cold water, I've experienced some in other places that give you warmish water & that it's just not right...
Right on Ketchum!
Oh geez!! I'm guessing his next move is pyramid scheme or politics.
They are going to regret that. People come to Idaho because it is safe. Keep shouting "diversity" and will not be safe any more. Might sound racist, but it's just a sad fact, unfortunately.
Kudos to the hikers!
But I disagree with the emphasis on building (and mainting) thru trails. Pounding out the miles on a groomed trail like the PCT compared to following a vanishing trapper or Indian route is day and night -- off trail in the back country is to PCT thru hiking as trail walking is to schlepping along the shoulder of a highway.
I'm all for sharing knowledge of routes -- stream fords, downed timber to avoid, ridges to walk, and impassable cliffs or slide alder to avoid. With GPS that can now be easily shared without the need for blazing. Beyond that, sure maintain some sections along the route in popular areas. But trails are historically maintained by each passing animal.
Thru hiking -- well that is often about milestones and bragging rights. You'll never learn what you will crossing a mountain range off trail.
Let's face it 'frankr,' Bieter stands as much chance of losing in this election as Otter and all the other entrenched Republicans in our State & Federal spots did. Thankfully, we as Boiseans have the good sense to elect progressive Democratic people to represent us in city government
Dumb article. Bring back Casanova!!!
Wolfgang Hilbig in his novel titled "Ich," writes about a journalist who becomes a "Stasi" informer. His premise, as it turns out, is that there is little difference between a journalist and a Secret Police snitch.
He importantly quotes his boss as saying "You learn more from looking from the darkness into the light than the other way around." Gut gesagt, nicht wahr?
Did you know that the Idaho Tax Commission dictates to the counties the value of the RES LOT OR TRACT you will find on your Assessment Notice?
Of course the Arbiter will also never publish a story about how scientists put a black man, Ota Benga, in a New York zoo cage with apes, to prove the evolutionary chain as to how black people are so close to monkeys. Yeah . . .evolutionary believers are always so right. Pseudo science it is.
This is a great example of liberal tolerance. We are accepting of all viewpoints, as long as they are the ones we want to hear.
