i've shot only five bullets in my lifetime. all five from this AK-47 in Vietnam. i've learned my lesson.
does anyone really ever catch up at work?
No worries, ajax: I ran Robie last year and I've been a runner for two decades. I know the best way to train for that race: hills, mileage, hills, mileage, hills, hills, hills.
I believe that I've published every letter I've received on the levy vote, except for one that came in just after my deadline. For the record, that's a pro-levy letter. The anti-levy letters above were published online only because of space constraints. We ask that letters to the editor not exceed 300 words; when they do, they're often top of the cut list. I wish that wasn't the case but it is the reality of print. If you'd like to submit a letter to the editor, I'd be happy to consider it: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Like Scott wrote:
"Avoid the trails during winter months when temperatures rise above freezing--they are likely to be muddy and can be easily damaged."
I run TableRock regularly and until about three weeks ago, it was fine to hike even above freezing, since until recently we've had so little rain or snow this winter. We publish articles like this one this time of year because the trails aren't off-limits in the winter, but as riders and hikers we should be cautious. Hence, Scott's warning.
Editor chiming in here. I've written this a few times, but here goes again:
Boise Weekly has never been the kind of publication kids should read. We print bad words, we advertise booze, tobacco and phone sex, and we talk about "grown up" things in our pages and on our website that many people don’t consider appropriate for their children. If you don't want your kids reading about adult things and seeing profanity, Boise Weekly and boiseweekly.com isn't content they should read. Policing your kids ain't our job, readers, it's yours.
And finally—and I hope this is the last time I have to write this: The FCC does not regulate newspaper content.

In response to comments claiming that George Prentice's reporting is inaccurate, I'd like to say that Boise Weekly stands by Prentice's account.
The first commenter on this story is correct, as well. Those members who remained in the meeting “mic checked” during the commissioners’ question-and-answer period following testimony on the Macy’s building. One of the Occupiers interrupted the testimony, to once again turn attention toward the Eighth and Main Zion's Bank project. In unison, the remaining members were quoted as saying, “Mic check. Why is there no community housing component required in exchange for the tax payer-subsidy of the Zion’s Bank Building? We will be back.”
Editor chiming in here. First, great discussion. I enjoy seeing BW readers disagree in such a civil manner—trust me, that's not always the case.
Since a few questions have been raised about our decision to publish this piece, let me take a minute to address them.
Boise Weekly has never been the kind of publication kids should read. We print bad words, we advertise booze, tobacco and phone sex, and we talk about "grown up" things in our pages and on our website that many people don’t consider appropriate for their children. Of course, what you consider appropriate for your children is up to you and we expect that, should you choose, you’ll keep them from viewing not only the burlesque slideshow but also our daily swimsuit page, which, today just happens to be showing nipples.
As for representing more than pasties in our photos, only three of 18 photos show women in pasties. With those numbers, it’s hard to say that the photographer was overly fixated on that part of the show.
And finally, the FCC does not regulate newspaper content.
I'd be happy to answer any other questions. Thanks for reading.

Here's a link to the story we published on the full list of winners. Yes, there was a tie.
