I am researching a possible connection or influence of Troutner to in our Community Center reflected in the use of the laminated beams in the mid 1950's. Our Community Center in Winchester Idaho was built about the time Troutner was experimenting with spanning large spaces with laminated beams and we have a handsome example of laminated beams in our structure.
Do you have any addition sources or information about Troutner's work or influence in buildings such as schools or commercial buildings. The beams in our building support the ceiling and roof over an entire basket ball court in Winchester Idaho. Our building was built in 1954. We do not have a record of the architect, but are wondering about the connection or influence of Art Troutner. Any information out there.

Yes the Condos are beautiful, but I would be interested in knowing who did the market research and how they decided that overpriced condos would be perfect next to the Neurolux, Record Exchange, Hannafins, and Mulligans. Young Boise scensters would be a better fit for this area. Unfortunatly most young adults in Boise are unable to afford such a price. Now Royal Plaza is in bankruptcy. All things concidered it's there own fault.
As stated in the printed edition of the Boise Weekly, Sudoku did not run on Sept. 2, but will be included in the paper on Sept. 9.
Apparently readership is so low that even the purported employees of Boise Weekly don't read it or the comments.
Seriously, where's the sudoku? Cuz it's not like there's much content in the Boise Weekly anymore to bring readership.
No Garage, No Way
Where's the Sudoku?
Wow, how smart!!!
Where are the answers to the May 6 puzzle?? This one is driving me crazy--I have to cheat!
I see a con.

The Reef, here’s your tip: Rude service will come back to bite you in the big kahonas.
By April L. Davis
(soon-to-be Boise resident)
If you want to have a few drinks at The Reef, make sure to bring enough cash to tip your bartender for every drink or he will refuse to serve you.
The very first time, and LAST time, I had ever been to The Reef was for a party on August 25 to celebrate the marriage of a good friend of mine.
My husband and I live in Oregon and we frequently have “date-nights” away from our kids, where we visit nice, high-class restaurants and bars in down-town Portland. We will have to re-locate to Boise very soon, so my husband and I were excited to check-out some of the Boise hot-spots.
Upon arrival at The Reef, we loved the decor and atmosphere, it looked like a fun place, and it almost felt like we were right at home in down-town Portland.
We met up with our friends on the outdoor deck upstairs and ordered drinks at the bar. I made sure to tip the female, brown-haired bartender that poured our drinks, she seemed very nice. We then joined the wedding party of about 15 people at our “reserved” table.
My husband and I waited for about 20 minutes, with a menu wide-open, for someone to take our order. No one even came to our table for drink service.
So, my husband stopped a waitress as she passed by on her way pick up drinks at the bar for another table. He told her we wanted to order food.
“Our kitchen is closing, we stopped taking food orders ten minutes ago,” replied the waitress.
We were disappointed because our friends had told us The Reef serves good food. Although we were hungry, we decided to stick around since our purpose for being there was to visit with our friends and celebrate their marriage.
My husband went back up to the bar and ordered our second round of drinks from a male bartender (he was clean-shaved with short, spiky blond hair). My husband made sure to tip him.
A while later, I decided to buy one of their specialty two-person drinks for the new bride and groom to share. It was a $10 drink, so I grabbed a $20 bill from my husband and went up to the bar.
The bar was extremely busy, so I patiently waited for service. Finally, the same male bartender who had served my husband earlier took my order.
The bartender gave me back a $10 bill so I didn’t have any change for his tip. He went on to take a drink order from another customer, so I thought to myself, “I'll make sure we tip him double on the next round.”
I returned to the table and gave the bride and groom their drink. A few minutes later, my husband asked if I would get him a beer. So, I took the $10 bill the bartender had given me as change and I went back to order a beer.
The same male, blond-haired bartender who had been serving us was still busy, but I made a point to wait for him, so I could catch him up on the tip. I waited, and waited, and waited, for about 10 minutes. He looked at me several times and continued to take orders from other people and pour them drinks.
I finally leaned over the counter and politely said, “I know you’re really busy, but I have a quick, easy request for you; I only need one beer.”
He replied, “I’m done serving you, because you didn’t tip”, and then turned and walked away from me.
Normally, I wouldn’t blame an entire business establishment for one rude employee. So, I asked another employee, a very nice waitress, if I could see a manager.
The person who presented herself to me as the manager (she had blond hair, about shoulder-length) was even more rude to me than the bartender was. When I calmly tried to explain the situation to her, she refused to listen.
“He didn’t say that, that didn’t happen, I don’t believe you,” she said.
I said to her, “Ma’am, If you won’t listen to my complaint, then I need to speak to someone else. Who is your boss?”
At that point she proceeded to get in my face and told me, “I am the general manager, you can’t get any higher than me.”
Our entire party of 15 people left The Reef and none of us will ever return again - some of them used to be regular customers.
So, to The Reef management, I hope you take this review seriously because it’s a shame how easily a couple of rude employees can ruin your reputation and drive away regular, paying customers.
And for the clean-cut, blond-haired, young man refusing to serve customers because they don’t have enough change for one drink-tip, here’s your tip: you better hope I’m not the only one who has the guts to complain about you, or you won’t just be losing a few dollars, you’ll be losing your job.
A person who writes about houses should know the difference between a split-level home and a bi-level home. Please look up both terms in the Merriam-Webster dictionary, and you'll find that this is a bi-level home. (I can tell just by looking at the picture.) This makes readers wonder how many other facts you get wrong in your writing, so we feel like we can't trust anything you write. That's a shame, because your column is very enjoyable otherwise.
The plumbing here is on a well, and the water often comes out of our showerhead BROWN. It was ok to live with it at a $575 apt rental cost, but NO WAY is it worth putting up with for the monthly housing pymt of @$900. No worries, the new owners were kind enough to serve all leftover renters with 30 day notices to move, or they will evict next month in April. I'm still upset, having to up and move my kids in the middle of the schoolyear. They could have given us more than 30 days notice that they wanted to take our units and sell them.
Our fascination with this house has forced us to consider ducking out of another commitment to a house on the north end. But were worried about the small size and the baby/pool thing. Talk us straight!!!
FYI there's another Troutner house for sale on the bench - equally fantastic!
