Odds & Ends



  • Risch Skips Public TV Debate

    Lt. Gov. Jim Risch has told the League of Women Voters that he'll skip their debate, to be televised on Idaho Public Television.

    Instead, Risch intends to appear on one sponsored by KTVB Channel 7.

    "He likes the KTVB format better," said Elinor Chehey from the League of Women Voters.

  • Vote Early, Vote Often

    Ada County wants to get the vote out nice and early this spring.

    The county is hyping its newly expanded early voting system, which includes a new location in Meridian.

    Check out the details in the county's own words.

  • LaRocco Office Broken Into

    It ain't the Watergate Hotel, but Democrat Larry LaRocco's office was broken into over the weekend.

    "Nothing was taken," said LaRocco spokesman Dean Ferguson. "There really is a lot of valuable equipment here. We may have even had a little cash on hand."

    The crook, who may or may not have been a Cuban national, was not seen in the act.

    The crook apparently broke in by kicking open the door of the campaign offices on 27th Street in Boise.

    "We can't tell if anything was inspected," Ferguson said.

  • Megabytes on Fire

    It's got to be at least 700 MB!

    I mean, how else do you interpret this e-mail alert from KTVB Channel 7:

    11:45am: A large file is burning near Fairview & Raymond in Boise. LIVE CAM now on KTVB.COM

    Dunno about you, but we're headed right over there. Somebody is purging their desktop in a major way.

  • No Leashes, No How

    We don't need no stinkin' leashes—at least a growing number of Boiseans don't think they do.

    A group opposed to a proposed leash requirement on some Foothill trails has organized a petition drive, and so far they have more than 1,500 signatures.
