Re: “Singing With Angels

Saw the film in Utah - it's phenomenal. So much better than anything I expected and I highly recommend it.

Re: “Camp

Great movie. Incredible it is based on a real camp right here in Idaho! Very heartwarming story and well written. I loved that 50% of my proceeds will go back to our local camp to help foster children!

Re: “127 Hours

One of the best movies I have ever seen, James Franco perfectly portray's the desperation and confusion I'm sure was going through Aron Ralston's head during the ordeal. The score, composed by A.R. Rahman (with the help of Sigur Ros, Dido, and others) is genius and so perfectly goes along with the action, it seems the universe itself was playing it. This is the greatest movie of the past few years and is a must see for anyone and everyone. (some parts are rather graphic, so be careful if your squeamish)

Re: “The Counselor

A disappointment. However, cool furniture. (The scene where Fassbender & Cruz decide to escape to "Boise" is both painful and priceless.)

Re: “More Heather Scott Melodrama at Idaho Statehouse: Five GOP Legislators Ask to Be Removed From Committees

For as long as most of us can remember, the GOP has had a "super majority" in the Legislature, and pretty much calls the shots. I believe at its root, the local Legislative Soap Opera is a microcosm of the power struggle in the GOP, between the "establishment" group and the "Neo-Republicans."

I suspect that the Bigwigs will beat those rebels into submission, and get back to their traditional Establishment GOP Legislatin' (and ignoring the Democrat minority), in fairly short order.

Re: “Punished After Claiming Female House Members Trade Sex for Power, Rep. Heather Scott Issues Statement: 'I Call It Like I See It'

She's being punished because she is a woman. The men say much worse than that. What about the Rep for Idaho's corporate group last year who made horrible statements and was protected.

Re: “Poll: Has Your Street Been Plowed?

Perhaps before ACHD pats themselves on the back, declaring that they are proud of the work that they have done, they should first finish the job they are being asked to do.

Re: “Letters to the Editor January 11, 2017

The Boise Weekly says on it's mission statement page that comments made to letters shouldn't be "don't be libelous, slanderous, threatening, defamatory, hateful or abusive.

That being said, could it (the BW,) also make an effort to not publish plagiarized pieces by PETA disciples? (That would be just about anything someone submits with an anti-meat theme.)
For instance, Ike Schneider's "letter" (1/11) is a copy of the following two "letters to the editors":
http://registerguard.com/rg/opinion/35143244-78/2017-time-for-plant-based-meats.html.csp - Elijah Hennison, Eugene, OR Jan. 3, 2017
http://www.goerie.com/opinion/20161230/2017-promises-to-deliver-new-vegetarian-options-letters-to-editor - Dick Wahlberg, Erie, PA Posted Dec 30, 2016
Oh, and do a google search on "The plant-based food revolution is going mainstream." to see the three hundred plus (300+) more "letters" by dozens of devoted deceivers dedicated to PETA's dogmata.

The Boise Weekly might also want to consider charging PETA for its "press releases", or more accurately defined "heretofore free advertising", in the future. Isn't that how other organizations (businesses, charities, clubs, festivals) get the word out on their beliefs?
In closing my non-libelous, non-slanderous, non-threatening, non-defamatory, non-hateful and non-abusive, yet truthful request, I wish PETA all the best in their personal nutrition diets.

Re: “Here's ACHD's Explanation of How It Prioritizes Snowplowing

It's now Jan 13th and it's been over a week since snow plows have been through the Hobble Creek neighborhood (bordered by Eagle Rd and Chindin). First there was a foot of snow on our neighborhood streets, then it rained on top of the foot of snow, then the snow started melting and now it's frozen so the foot of slush on our streets is now frozen solid. Neighbors are unwilling to face the icy streets and frozen ridges in the streets. The few cars that venture out quickly lose traction and require help to push their cars out of the frozen ridges. We're running out of groceries now and today we actually made dinner out of pasta that expired in Sept 2010. Please send someone to plow the icy ridges and ice from our streets so we can function and get out and about to run errands and shop for groceries. We feel we've been abandoned. I watch one car after another get stuck in the ice and snow near my house at the corner of Brooklet and W. Edenbrook. Please send snow plows!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: “Idaho State Journal: Eastern Idaho Lunch Lady Says Life is a 'Nightmare' One Year After Being Fired for Giving Student Free Meal

What she did by not giving that gofundme money to Dalene is fraud. Need to get ahold of gofundme and file a complaint. If they can't help you need to contact law enforcement. People have been arrested for this exact same thing.

Great article. Thank you for informing us so we can keep an eye on this terrible bill. Why is this coming up again, don't we have other pressing national issues that deserve more attention than this?
