  • Winder's Out of Mayor's Race

    Boise is "too Democratic"
      Chuck Winder says he's not going to run again for the office of Boise Mayor.

      His decision not to run again leaves Mayor Dave Bieter with just one Republican opponent so far, City Councilman Jim Tibbs.

      Winder told BW today he has a lot going on at his real estate business, but that the recent Democratic upsets in Legislative seats affected his decision.

      "Boise's changed," Winder said. "The Democrats have done a good job here."

  • Development or Deer?

    Citizens, city, county clash over Hammer Flat subdivision
      The 700-acre Hammer Flat plateau, located near Lucky Peak Reservoir east of Boise, is critical habitat for deer, elk and antelope in the cold months. But furry ungulates aren't the only creatures interested in Hammer Flat. Last spring, a local developer purchased the property with the intent of building a 1,400-residence community on the plateau. Now local advocates, experts and Boise City officials are expressing concern that the development would eliminate the wintering grounds for Idaho wildlife, including the largest mule deer herd in the state.

  • Being Basque

      The United States has been called a "melting pot," a colorful stew of race, culture and ideology that borrows from all over the world. As a result, ancestral lines have blurred over the years, breeding affection for many lands and people without full understanding or appreciation of what it means to be Irish, Mexican, German or Greek.
