Re: “F-35s in Boise? 'We Don't Know What We Don't Know'

This article hits the nail on the head - CLB and these fierce opposition groups do nothing more than shout rhetoric and hyperbole to try and stir up emotional responses in the undecided people. The meetings are nothing short of sit-down mob mentality b.s.

I don't blame the mayor and Guard reps one bit for not attending these meetings, I sure wouldn't if I was in their position. The lies that the groups keep repeating (see both the earlier comments before mine) are ridiculous and all the CLB wants to do is get in a shouting match. They don't want to talk facts, they want to shout down the supporters because they can't get satisfaction from being respectful and responsible, it appears.

Re: “F-35s in Boise? 'We Don't Know What We Don't Know'

Here are the facts: Boise City leadership (BCL) has refused to address the public in a open and public format. BCL has offered false facts, obstructed, and outright lied. BCL has been on a campaign with public treasure to convince the public that we should be in favor of F-35's and that we should trust them to do whatever is necessary to bring them to Boise. Get informed. Review articles at http://boiseguardian.com/?s=f-35

Re: “F-35s in Boise? 'We Don't Know What We Don't Know'

I've attended both City and CLB meetings on the issue.
CLB has posted an incredible amount of facts.
The city has not.
What has been consistent is that "City of Boise spokesman Mike Journee" always lies. He's in marketing after all.

Re: “Idaho Power Registered All-Time Peak Record July 7

WE Intermountain Gas !!!!

Thank you for allowing our family to easily chose between paying our gas bill and groceries. We're able to do BOTH, unlike with Idaho Power Company. Like many other customers , I dread receiving my Idaho Power Bill.....and OPENING it. Soo ridiculously out of the " norm", across our country. SAD.

Re: “Idaho Power Registered All-Time Peak Record July 7

Idaho Power is THE MOST GREEDY Utility Company I have EVER DEALT WITH. I am a single professional female, well traveled and I speak from experience. THE IUPC really has "their" sky as their limit to raise our Idaho rates. Intermountain Gas is a NON-GREEDY company that allows us to BUDGET!!! (-;

I think the Boise Rescue Mission is lucky to have someone as intelligent and connected as a former US Representative. I hope they are paying him what he is worth.

Re: “Idaho Environmental Forum Considers Aftermath of Pioneer Wildfire

Wildfire causes lots of damage to the forest. Not only the forest the fire also damages the villages surrounded by the forest. Environmental fire not only affects the tree and animals, but it also affects the home. The Wildfire grows rapidly and causes lots of damage. Wildfire can cause due to various of reasons. So after the damage one should protect their home under home insurance policy. As after the damage one should file a claim with the help of Florida insurance adjuster(http://allclaimsusa.com/) for filing the claim.

Re: “Dr. Kevin Cahill

But... What are the negative impacts (costs to the community)? They say they exist but failed to provide them. I can't even find a link to the pro-bono work Dr. Cahill did previously. I think it would have been great to share that information.

Re: “Dr. Kevin Cahill

I'm finding a lot of the negative feedback on this proposal, from Boise area citizens, is the noise pollution of the zones they expect the aircraft to fly over. Right now, the loudest military aircraft rarely make stops in Boise and primarily stay around Mtn Home. Currently, there's tolerable noise for those of us who live near'ish to the airport. F-35s are another monster. But that's not all there is to the drawbacks. Political hands are being greased, of course. Probably a kick-back to the City for their cooperation. For me, the big kick in the face with this push is that this aircraft is a money pit, and has been for years. It's still not even probably 80% safe to fly yet. Republicans claim that there's not enough money for a Universal health care system in America, yet they're fine with spending $40B taxpayer dollars on the F-35 program, and countless more funds for the bloated defense budget. Why are we not complaining about this?

Re: “For Rent: Boise's Historic-Low Vacancy Rate Triggers a Flood of New Apartments

I noticed this tidbit.

----Also on Johnson's wall is a framed JPM ledger page, circa 1958, showing rentals ranging from $40 to $45 a month. That's a far cry from what the U.S. Housing and Urban Development Department today calls "affordable."----- Then this......----Affordable Rent for a family of four in each of the categories would be $615 (Extremely Low), $804 (Very Low), $1,286 (Low) and $1,929 (Workforce).-----

If you run $45 via a inflation calculator for 1958, you will see it's $381. I'd say that $615 is too much by 2X. End Dollar Devaluation.

Re: “Dr. Kevin Cahill

Boise City has decided that it's not politically correct to go against the F-35. It has Bipartisan support in the Congress and is a fav of Dem establishment. Perhaps Obama lobbied Bieter for the F-35 on his visit a few years ago. Most City Council members are immune from political backlash, as they are in "soundproof" parts of town that don't hear airport traffic much. Military traffic avoids the Northend. That keeps the "peace" politically. So don't expect help from enviros that might get upset about noise pollution voting against the Politburo at City Hall over this.

Re: “For Rent: Boise's Historic-Low Vacancy Rate Triggers a Flood of New Apartments

Isn't it great for the investors!! Isn't it crappy for avg family that doesn't make the pumped up $64,000 a year.
The wages in Boise haven't kept up with even the Government's 4% avg wage yearly increases.
You have a work force making between $9-15 hr and are suppose to quaifiy for 3 times the rent amount. Are you guys drinking your own coolaid? And maybe someone needs to remind you of Arco in eastern Idaho and what they are burying there, exgovern Ceil Andrus knows

The real scandal is what happens behind closed doors inside the homeless shelters. They don't provide the help people like to think they do and they put on a show for the media for donations.

It was NOT a sex scandal - the woman didn't consent! It was a sexual harassment scandal. Please fix.
