Re: “Boise Planners Want Street-Level Residences in Downtown Core

Buisnesses want and need street-level acess, residents do not. If there is no current market demand for buisnesses to move in, there will be the same low demand in the future if they cannot get access to the streets in the core of the city.

Re: “Black Friday Crowds Dwindle

This headline made me very happy to hear. Hopefully we can do away with Black Thur/Fri soon, and give workers the vacation days they deserve.

Re: “EV in the TV

I hope to own an E.V. in the future because an E.V. without a combustion engine is just a better investment in a new car for the long-term, especially the Tesla models. Combustion engines are plagued with potential mechanical malfunctions, whereas an E.V. is simpler, requires very little maintenance to upkeep (no oil changes), and it has the added bonus of reducing emissions/other pollutants. The technology is rapidly improving, and with Tesla's new battery factory opening in 2017, battery costs are going to plummet so when a replacement is needed, the technology will be even more improved and cheaper.

Re: “Idaho Humane Society Pursues Pet Shangri-La

I am all for the $11 million upgrade if the money is mostly coming in through contributions and not taxes. If the money is coming in through contributions, it should be up to those contributors and IHS to decide how to expand, not the local vets.

Re: “Child Killed by Gunshot Fired By Another Child

We live in a gun society, and gun safety is everyone's business when guns are everywhere, especially here in Idaho. I'm all for sex-ed because it lowers teenage pregnancy and increases sexual-related health, so why not include gun-ed at school? A one day focus on gun safety for all children would not completely stop these things from happening, but I think it would lower the chances and make us all safer.

Re: “Add the Words Protesters Sentenced

Don't blame the judges, blame the lawmakers who refuse to hear and debate the bill despite an overwhelming desire by the people to have this bill debated AND PASSED.
