Re: “House Speaker Paul Ryan Met With Demonstration During Boise Visit

Heard while walking by, "What am I supposed to say now?" BTW, it should be 'Dozen' of demonstrators.

Re: “House Speaker Paul Ryan Met With Demonstration During Boise Visit

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is considered a terror organization by one of out Arab allies. You be the judge.

Re: “August 22, 2017: What to Know

In the most obvious baldfaced lie of the speech, Trump said the new plan came after I studied Afghanistan in great detail and from every conceivable angle, which translates to, "Im telling you what the generals have decided to do, and by Thursday Ill have forgotten two thirds of it."

Re: “UPDATED: More Idaho Politicians Weigh in on Charlottesville Violence

The Russian connection has played out with no results. Soros must now reheat the race war. Everyone with an average IQ or less grab a sign and act really upset that you live the best lives of any minorities anywhere on earth. It's just not fair that whites still live well too! America sucks.

Destroy America. Socialism Now! http://www.reuters.com/article/us-venezuela-animals-idUSKCN1AW2NN

PS: I do agree Trump is a wacko but his name is not Clinton, Bush, Obama, or Sanders, so I'll accept it.

Crapo, Simpson and Risch condemn racism but continue to support their racist leader -- oh the hypocrisy.

Keep in mind if a developer or homeowner comply with existing permitting codes. they are entitled to build. If the City refuses the grant approval, it is liable for taking a property right.

Re: “Homegrown Boise Neighborhood Protest Results in Homegrown Compromise

It's a tough balance. Higher density, but still single family, housing (a.k.a. infill) keeps traffic and long commute air pollution down for all, but has to be balanced with the character of the neighborhood. The city needs to create house size/lot size constraints as well as consider street/garage parking. Builders/developers will need to be flexible and creative to accommodate parking needs while minimizing disturbances to neighbors. Neighbors need to be flexible and understand that landowners have property rights to respect. It sounds like this was a case where all those aspects were met for a compromise solution. We need more middle ground solutions like this - there's no "me" in compromise.

Idaho Power seeks changes for solar customers

Associated Press

BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Idaho Power officials are asking state regulators for permission to make big changes to how solar customers pay for their power.

The utility company announced Thursday it wants to create a new class of customers for homeowners and small businesses using renewable energy. Their request is now pending before the Idaho Public Utilities Commission.

At issue is a practice called "net metering," which mandates that homeowners and small business owners who install solar panels be compensated for any surplus energy they feed back onto the grid.

Idaho Power officials argue the current system wasn't designed for homeowners who installed their own solar panel and warn traditional power customers are shouldering the extra costs.

However, solar panel advocates counter that Idaho Power's request will create a second-class of customers who will likely face hefty fees.

Re: “Boise Ordinance Dials Down Muffler Noise

I havent see any enforcement whatsoever. 8PM on a Saturday night and the cars are screaming, without a cop in sight, downtown. Will this be enforced the same way? if so, then it's pointless.
