Re: “Idaho Sen. Patrick Says Chobani Boycott Comment Was 'Tongue in Cheek' But Keeps Taking Shots at Yogurt Maker

Wild west, Chobani made the same mistake many outsiders make about the Idaho legislature. They honestly didn't believe the state government was dumb enough to pass such a bill, let alone print it. It happens to most new comers. Idaho has gone completely off the rails. I can see why the kids are leaving in droves after graduation. There is nothing here for them. It's time to move.

Do you know how much money Twin Falls residents made, not only in wages for current jobs, but in construction of that plant? I don't like Chobani and I don't care for the environmental impacts of their product, but they have done more for Twin Falls than anyone else has in years. Heck, that backwater Peyton-Place of a town almost matters again.

Re: “President Me

I guess this joke of a columnist doesn't realize how much of the legislature, SBOE and others that affect the decisions made are GOP members with UI degrees. Your own alumni and administration have always been a major part of the problem. That is why long ago, now, and forevermore the vast majority of really smart students head out of state for college. Idaho (the state) is a joke. For the record Cope, UI enrollment has been on a downward trend for decades, with a slight bump during the Hoover years. It's not just the stupidity of those outside the university who are responsible for this. The last thing the university needs is more vandal-to-vandal-head-in-the-sand idiots like you running the place. The glory years are gone and they are not coming back. It is your attitude and alumni like you that turn every non-vandal off and not want to help. Seeing the vast majority of the state has absolutely no ties to your university, you might want to think about that for awhile.

Re: “New Proposed Parking Meter Rates: $1.50 for First Hour, $3 For Second Hour

Downtown Boise is not worth pay for parking. The shops are mostly overpriced cliches and the restaurants are redundant of each other. Other than the after 8 nightlife, it is simply over-hyped and underwhelming. The Saturday parking issue will just make me go elsewhere for a farmers market. Probably one that isn't loaded with people who think their pets are loved by everyone.

Re: “Stop the Presses: Newspaper Reporter Is 'Worst Job in America'

Whatever happened to assistant crack whore (ACW)? Although an ACW and a reporter do have a lot in common, I would still say the ACW is a worse job, but probably a better person.

Re: “Trying To Get A Hold of a Local Official? Try Sun Valley

Way to support Treasure Valley businesses. Government wouldn't be government without the occasional boondoggle at taxpayer expense. If they were doing this in ADA county, at least local businesses could makes some money off of it.

Re: “SXSW: Where Did Idaho's Representation Go?

Could be because most of the bands that were in the showcase last year were indistinguishable or, more likely, worse than 100's of other bands that were already there. Not to much happening that is original in our fine valley.

Re: “Built to Spill Announces Local Shows, Angers Some Locals

It's awesome. The over 21 crowd gets plenty of opportunities to see Built to Spill, including the night before at Neurolux. The under 21 crowd have to miss a lot of shows because the need for some patrons to drink.

Thanks Built To Spill. It means a lot to the kids who usually aren't allowed into your shows.

BTW, my 15 year old goes to the venue alone and has performed at the crux alone. It is much more comfortable to be in a room of peers than an all ages show with agro dipshits thinking every show is a hardcore event.
