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

It's always about the money. They don't care about you or anyone else. Just make sure the Rich get richer. And keep everyone under there thumb and lies to keep them looking good. Sad thing is the so call law of are state is in with them.

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

Low water year....raise the rates.
High water year.....raise the rates.
Conserve as Id Power suggests by buying LED lights and energy efficient appliances.......raise the rates.
Use solar ..... Waa, Waa, Waa......Poor Idaho Power has to buy back any excess power....raise the rates.
Just make sure that no Idaho Power shareholder ever looses money......raise the rates.

PUC needs to get their heads out of their asses and quit allowing these increases.

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

this is ridiculous. Record snowfall this year and they're going to raise our rates. Quit dumping our water down the river and use it to produce the power this state needs.

Re: “DBA State of Downtown Coming Attractions: A Stadium Update and Al Fresco Dining in the Middle of Capitol Boulevard

What bubble do these people live in. Capital Dining. Can the traffic get worse? Stadium money for the few. Make no mistake, these people do not have the interest of the people who live in town in mind. Boise, Denver, Phoenix. What will be the difference? The most livable city indeed.

Re: “DBA State of Downtown Coming Attractions: A Stadium Update and Al Fresco Dining in the Middle of Capitol Boulevard

200,000 is very realistic. It's around 5300 a game. The current venue is not an applicable comparison to a state of the art venue. We could fill Memorial Stadium on a more consistent basis if it didnt have the challenges and the 1st base grandstand sun issues. Attendance has spiked the past 3 years and this year will be probably the largest one yet.

Re: “DBA State of Downtown Coming Attractions: A Stadium Update and Al Fresco Dining in the Middle of Capitol Boulevard

I love the idea of a new baseball stadium. To get even 200,000 people through that stadium for baseball, though, the Hawks would have to nearly double their attendance to nearly 6000 a game. That seems optimistic. To tally 300,000 people in a season they would need a full season AAA team which is hard to come by. Is this something they are expecting to accomplish?

Re: “There's No 'T' in Boise... For Now

Let's do the math.

Assuming the $111 million for initial construction falls out of the sky, look at the costs going forward. Using the city's numbers...

1400 passengers every day... 365 days (assuming it runs every day of the year, which the buses don't)... that's 511,000 rides per year. Awesome!

$3.3 million per year to operate. That's about 6-and-a-half bucks per ride. If the ride is shut down on Sundays, like the bus, the cost per ride is a little over 7-and-a-half bucks.

Will people climb on board (toot! toot!) and fork over that kind of dough? Nah. So obviously it will be heavily subsidized by people who aren't riding.

Re: “A New (And Free) Solution to Downtown Boise's Parking Crunch

So ,what do people do between the morning hours and afternoon hours? It appears that this is only for people who work downtown ,why not make the system larger by making more routes into the 'burbs .
And maybe a train route from Caldwell to Boise ,then expand bus routes ,not everyone lives in the downtown area.

Re: “A New (And Free) Solution to Downtown Boise's Parking Crunch

The problem for me is safety. The garages are not safe. There are no attendees even around the place that I pay. Park and ride is not going to be any better.

Re: “End of the Line for Grapevine in Boise's North End

Dear Boise Weekly Editor and Staff,

The Grapevine, Inc. is now focused on the purchase of the building and recently met with Mayor Bieter to discuss what we have always viewed as our second in a sequence of three preferred options. The Mayor acknowledged and expressed appreciation for our desire to purchase, repair, and restore our historic home, and to continue to serve the neighborhood with a broad array of 12-Step recovery meetings.

Although one door has closed, another has opened. With the purchase of the building for the minimum bid of $50,000 we will continue to . . . work together to continue the tradition of Fire Station No. 2 by saving lives whether we are fire fighters long gone, persons in recovery, or their families. Generous donors during the Idaho Gives campaign gifted us over $12,000 for this purpose. This, in combination with grant monies we have applied for, and our dedicated cash in the bank brings us to the minimum bid for the building.

Re: “UPDATE: Boise Foothills Flap Surfaces in Idaho Supreme Court

This is an absolute horrible idea. So many of us enjoy it up there and there is a ton of wildlife habitat. I see a lot of beds up there on morning hikes. Aren't they destroying enough already along the river and Harris Ranch? There are already enough huge, obnoxious houses being built around the corner! That's going to destroy that area.

Re: “Here's What You Should Know About the Greater Boise Auditorium District

I have been asking these questions for 5 years:

1. How much are GBAD directors paid?
2. Are GBAD directors allowed to participate in PERSI?
3. Who is responsible for auditing the books at GBAD?

We can not know how to determine GBAD performance without this information.

How about it BW, or any other entity interested in the public good?
