Re: “Leaders Break Ground on Housing-First Development for Chronically Homeless in Boise

Example of the extra cost of homelessness: person is given a sandwich, eats half, has the other half later. No refrigeration, person gets food poisoning. Trip to er by ambulance $1,500, er charges $2,800, . Expensive sandwich.

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: “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.

Re: “Shifting Foundation: How Adare Manor Is Moving Forward in Boise, In Spite of Federal Tax Overhaul

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.

Re: “Without Fanfare, Equifax Made Bankruptcy Change That Affects Hundreds of Thousands

Oh BooHoo. Stop spending money when ya ain't got none. Bankruptcy should be considered a form of theft.

BTW: The best way to prevent running out of money is to NOT get married. Women these days give it up on the first date, no need to be married to have kids. Unmarried and separate households allows you to keep better control of the finances.

Re: “SPLC Report: Trump Fuels National Hate Group Growth, Idaho Numbers Remain Stable

And the number of alleged "hate groups" listed as "Statewide" on this year's "Hate Map," meaning those that the SPLC provides NO information for whatsoever, rose from 191 to 292, for an increase of 53%.

Five of Idaho's 12 alleged "hate groups" are included among these homeless phantoms. Nearly half of the alleged count.

We get to take the company's word for it that these groups really, really exist, with no proof, no verification whatsoever. "Trust us!"

That's not good enough and it certainly isn't good journalism. Big claims demand big proof, or any proof, for that matter. The SPLC's "Hate Map" is designed for fundraising, not fact-finding.

Your readers deserve better.
