Re: “Boise Ordinance Dials Down Muffler Noise

Five Mile Road underwent an extensive widening and completely new paving project that cost taxpayers big money. The speed limit was raised from 35 mph to 40 mph. Motorcycle riders and junk vehicles with loud, illegal muffler mods are in Heaven on their new raceway. I live on Five Mile near Ustick and work front home. The noise level is unbelievable and nonstop. These people act as if the noise ordinance and speed limit mean nothing. And apparently, they are right. I've never seen any of them pulled over by law enforcement. Noise pollution is off the charts. Boise government does not seem to care. They obviously live in quiet, expensive neighborhoods. One week living in my area would be profoundly eye-opening. Wake up and hire more law enforcement to curb this lawless free-for-all.

Re: “Idaho Musicians Sing in Support of Paulette Jordan

We are thrilled to have Paulette running for office here in Idaho. She is really someone all Idahoans can get behind. She reaches out to all People and listens to your questions and not only gives us answers but explains how she plans on accomplishing the goals of the people not those of special interest. She is well qualified to be the Governor of Idaho and we welcome a change in the status quo which the existing good old boys have promised for years now that education and health care is their top priority. We are now 50th in the nation in education and even though they continue to say they have another health care plan where is it? Paulette brings excitement for change we can really use here in our state. Vote for Paulette Jordan November 6.

Re: “New York Times Chronicles Rising Tide of Homeless Encampments in Western U.S.

Very sad to know about such condition of homeless people. Problems like poverty can lead to the homeless. Thus, it is essential to help the homeless people. One of my friends is associated with the NGO, so he suggested me to read this and join the organization, where they work for the social welfare of the people.

Re: “The Long and Winding Road to Success at Allumbaugh House

I have to disagree with the previous post ^^^
I am a certified Addiction Counselor. I have seen a fair share of addiction cases that are homeless individuals but I have also seen a homeless population which are just "down on their luck" with no mental health or addiction issues. Let's NOT call it what you call it "A MENTAL HEALTH ISSUE". Not every addict is suffering from anxiety or depression or is bi-polar nor schizophrenic. The majority are suffering from a DISEASE. A disease that may (or may not) be genetic. Some addicts are a product of their environment, they grew up in a drug culture, as their parents did being baby boomers of the free-love free-drug era of the 60's. LET'S CALL IT WHAT IT IS: TODAY'S EPIDEMIC. And we need to stop criminalizing the addict with jails and prisons. There is NO rehabilitation while incarcerated. Let's offer help and hope instead! Addicts can recover and regain their standing in society and become taxpaying, productive citizens again. I know, because I'm one of the many who are living proof! Good work Allumbaugh House. We need more places for an addict to recover long-term.

Re: “John McGee, Who Left Idaho Senate Following Sex Scandal, Emerges as New VP of Development for Boise Rescue Mission

Boise rescue missions in Boise and Nampa are staffed with sexual deviates. Even ones that are married. I stayed at both of them. In Nampa they molested a Autistic boy in their care, (staff). !9 yrs old. This young man cried in my arms for 45 minutes. I made him call the Nampa police but there was nothing they could do because they cleaned him out. (Douched). These are some wicked people behind the scenes but to the eyes of the public they portrait themselves as Saints. NOT.

Re: “Frank Church Conference Focuses Lens on Refugee Crisis in the Era of Trump

Those who came to this land before which belonged to the Tribal people due to starvation and lack of resources to support themselves or their families. Are now the haters of people of whom they once belonged.

Have you no empathy, or did you forget that you too fled from the lands of your ancestors and passed your neighboring countries to come to this lands? These people will once hire you or you grandchildren. Think positive and the good book requires to do so.

Unfortunately this project destroys a community building. Urban Ascent is the only rope climbing gym in Boise, and now it will be gone. Very sad. This is not the way to move forward.
