Re: “The Candidate Becomes The Issue: Rebecca Arnold's Run for Fourth Judicial District Court Judge

Here's a bit of a tangent, Bob Bruce, candidate for ACHD District 3, has endorsed Rebecca Arnold. He states, “I highly recommend Rebecca as a candidate for 4th District Judge. She has the education and people skills to excel at this position. She is fair and balanced in her professional endeavors. Her experience as an Ada County Highway District Commissioner has been exemplary in all respects. I hope that you will give her your support.”

I have NEVER heard Rebecca Arnold accused of having "people skills." Bruce shares a penchant with Arnold for rash behavior. Yesterday he threatened to sue me for posting public records from the Idaho Repository on my Facebook that contradicted his claims on his driving record that he had posted on my Facebook thread. Then lashed out on the thread that North Enders were "all usurpers" and "self righteous" and called me "an attack dog on a long leash." He later deleted all posts and tried to delete the message threatening to sue. I have collected screen grabs of his comments and threat. Neither Rebecca Arnold nor Bob Bruce should EVER serve in elected office.

Re: “Elephant in the Room: Closed Primaries and a Super Tuesday Caucus Changes the GOP Playbook

Let's also be clear there are two dates for caucus in Idaho. March 6th is the Republican Caucus in Idaho, not "Idaho's Caucus Day", as was incorrectly stated on a local television news show last week.

April 14th is the Democratic Caucus in Idaho. Ada County's Democratic Caucus will be held at the Morrison Center, with doors opening at 8:30 am and doors closing promptly at 10:00 am to begin tallying votes. Those participating need to be inside the building no later than 10:00 am.

And as slfisher stated, regarding the May Primary, anyone regardless of party affiliation may participate in the Democratic Primary. It remains fully open to any Idaho voter. Regarding the requirement to affiliate with a particular party, this one year people may designate party affiliation at the May Primary, those not participating or specifically designating an affiliation will be assigned the affiliation of "unaffiliated" by the Secretary of State's office directly after the May Primary.

Furthermore, some people have voiced concern as to whether affiliating as a Republican meant they couldn’t vote for a Democratic Candidate in the November 6th General Election. Voters can vote for ANY candidate they like in the General Election. Party affiliation does not affect the November 6th election at all.

Re: “Two Fewer Homes, One More Boise Parking Lot

I have always loved 413 S. 5th. It is a beautiful and unique home. If nobody steps forward to move the homes, would the developers at least be willing to let people do architectural salvage?

Re: “Weather Creates Roadblock for Mega-loads

Adam Rush and IDT officials promised that there wouldn't be any delays beyond the maximum of 15 minutes because the "experts" had thoroughly reviewed the travel plan and it was sound. Additionally, they also said we had nothing to worry about because "if" for some reason there were any delays beyond the rules that were already stretched for ConocoPhillips's needs (actual Idaho rule is no more than a 10-minute delay), ConocoPhillips would be issued a hefty fine per each delay. In reality, the Education and Health & Welfare budgets are being gutted and Idaho Transportation Department is far too cozy with ConocoPhillips to slap the multi-billion dollar company with a single of the 10 fines the they now legally owe. Guess our kids aren't as important.

Re: “20 Mega-Loads Now Sit at Port of Lewiston

Why would a company pay to ship loads all the way from Korea and up the Columbia without overland permits unless they got the "wink" ahead of time from the Idaho administration that they would get them. The current Idaho administration and the oil companies want to turn Highway 12 along the Lochsa Wild & Scenic River into a permanent high-and-wide corridor for industrial hauling. His will have a permanent negative impact on the region, river, communities and all tourism and recreation in the area. It will ruin the highway, and we the Idaho taxpayers will have to pay for all repairs to the tune of millions of dollars, while we subsidies a multibillion dollar company that wants to save a few million having their equipment built in Korea and shipped on our roads to Canada by a Dutch shipping company. There are not solid plans to remedy accidents that will likely send loads into the river. Go to http://fightinggoliath.org/ for more info) and http://www.petitiononline.com/k12sfw/petit… to sign a petition to stop the loads. We should all be up in arms over this issue! Help the communities of Highway 12 stop this. Governor Otter never talked to any residents before he planned this all out with the companies.

Loads will be 24 feet wide, 30 feet high and over 207 feel long (500 feet with two push trucks) and weigh between 340,000 and 600,000 pounds. The entire road is only 23 feet wide and built to stand between 48,000 to 57,000 pounds. Plans for the current shipment are to send one each day up the road, taking 3 days to travel to the MT border (cars travel this distance in 5 hours). There will be at least 3 loads on the stretch of road a day, blocking all traffic for hours at a time in each location. Ambulances won't be able to pass either. They have no viable emergency plan for accidents, which engineers say are very likely. Loads falling into the river would block the river flow causing flooding and not be able to be removed. Theoretical plans to use a crane for removal are impossible. A 500-ton crane with 340,000 pound counter wight would be necessary, and needs a flat compacted 45x45 foot bed for setup (road is 23 feet wide). The nearest crane would be over 10 hours away and would have to travel on more than 25 large trucks (on a road not designed for such loads).
