Re: “Converting 5th and 6th Streets From One-Way to Two-Way? No Way

As was mentioned by myself and Clay Carley, about two thirds of the story wasn't told. Until much more of the story sees the light of day and in context with the rest of the City's plan for Boise traffic this is where things will stand.

Re: “"Famous for 15 Minutes"

Hi, Kids! Today's lesson is "cultural appropriation." See how the artist took sacred imagery from Mexico and slapped it on a dead artist's face to make a t-shirt? Isn't it funny how iconography that holds deep spiritual meaning for certain people can be used without consideration? Especially when those people don't belong to the default culture (i.e. their brown)? Now get in your groups and discuss...then, recess!

Re: “Converting 5th and 6th Streets From One-Way to Two-Way? No Way

I think that 5th & 6th converted to 2 Way traffic would be great. For the most part keeping 7th & 9th and also Myrtle & Front at One Way would be great, especially Myrtle & Front since they are for the connector.
Other roads in town being 2 way would be nice.

Re: “Converting 5th and 6th Streets From One-Way to Two-Way? No Way

It has been said but I will reinforce the sentiment "the mind-numbing one way streets in Boise!
It is no wonder that fewer and fewer people want to go downtown in Boise because of the one way
streets that can send you in circles trying to find a place to park. How can a city remain viable under
these conditions and it is no surprise shops have closed and moved out to Meridien.

Please reconsider changing the one way streets to two way. What purpose can it possible serve to
have one way streets - uhhh maybe traffic moves faster like at 500pm and the rest of the time we
have to drive around like squirrels in a cage. Crazy system. Unproductive.

The correct source URL is…

The date is July 8 THROUGH 23, not July 8 AND 23, according to the source.

Re: “The Nasty God

Evangelicals are the most ignorant hypocrites on the planet. They pretend they voted for Trump because they thought Hillary was "worse" which is a bunch of disingenuous bunk which was bought and sold among Trump's uneducated fake-news believing base. The real truth that they don't want to admit to is that their self-righteous "morals and values" are on a sliding scale that favors party over their sacred beliefs that they obviously only pretend to ascribe to. I mean really?! How much of their souls did these so called "god-fearing christians" have to carve out before casting a vote for a "man" who perfectly embodies 6 of the 7 Deadly Sins? The only Deadly Sin he doesn't commit is sloth and that's only because he's too busy committing the other 6. Evangelicals can no longer claim to have a moral compass and expect to be taken seriously. Jesus, who was a liberal, would be ashamed that these people claim to be his followers.

Re: “Cold, Windy, Wet: Treasure Valley Forecast Calls for Freezing Rain And a Lot More Snow

We need to be very careful when we get any warnings for hurricanes and storms. These natural calamities come all of a sudden and causes a wide damage to the property. I read about people's views about the ways that they have adopted to keep their property safe. They say that they have chosen hurricane windows Miami from They prefer Impact Windows than normal windows and doors to keep their house safe. We need to take every possible step to secure our property.

Re: “Idaho Power Residential Customers Will See Rate Increases, Effective Today

That excess power that private solar generators provide can be used directly next door. Solar power on peoples homes populates the grid with power which lessens the amount of loss in the transmission of the power coming from far away plants. It is given to Idaho Power at the exact moment it is produced. Instead of Idaho Power having to build a Multi Million dollar power plant and extend those costs to Rate Payers solar investors are instead taking the hit in there own wallets to ensure clean power is delivered to their home. Idaho Power can sell the excess power they produce to another customer. One to one credit because Idaho Power then uses the power and resales it and they are therefore getting reimbursed for the power.

Re: “St. Luke's Begins Massive Expansion

Let's not forget the Romans - their slaves had healthcare, and homes, and education for their children...but in the end, they were all slaves to the masters.

We have been slaves since the USD was taken off the gold standard. Or since the FED was created to regulate value....your call.

Re: “Solarizing the Treasure Valley, One Roof At a Time

This is such a nice warm fuzzy feelgood story. Those very expensive tax credits are paid for by all of us. It is actually not even near break even points under 60 years without generous welfare subsidies.

Then the typical ignorant attitude: "Idahos energy is already fifty percent from hydroelectric, said Snake River Alliance Executive Director Wendy Wilson. If Idaho replaces coal and natural gas with wind and solar power, we could be 100% green. Its not so far-fetched.

Hydro, wind and solar have one common characteristic. They are all sporadically available. Snake River flows are a trickle in winter. There would NO POWER on a calm Christmas Eve. Realism watch to Wendy nice you have that job. Maybe next you can be a rodeo director even though you do not know what a saddle is.

Re: “St. Luke's Begins Massive Expansion

This expansion should give us pause to contemplate the overall state of American health care and where it is headed in the future. Current health care expenditures exceeds $2.6T. We have tremendous resources, not so good allocation. I still see the President of the Pittsburgh Hospital struggling to justify his $2+M/year salary. The current increase in cost of health care and health care insurance is simply unsustainable, unless we are willing to accept a new form of feudalism where most of us become serfs to the medical community. We need an honest discussion of costs and income associated with a system that is a monopoly pure and simple.

Re: “Solarizing the Treasure Valley, One Roof At a Time

Buyer beware. Some panels being installed are old technology. Also sometimes people are raped by installation costs. Look into the new products from Tesla. Just in time for Mayor Bieter to fly F-35s over her roof too. Super!
