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

Last time I checked even Idaho Power employees have to pay a power bill, including the CEO. It's got nothing to do with corporate greed or corruption. Demand rises so cost rises. Also, ipco federally has no choice but to buy back excess power from private wind and solar farms. This affects the rates. You're rates are STILL some of the lowest in the country. Educate yourselves.

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?

Sally's leaving is a great loss for the state of Idaho. She is an excellent listener when many in the party wanted little or no change. I hope her replacement is even half the person she is!

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: “Sally Boynton Brown

When she's having a conversation with herself, does she tell herself to shut up so the black people can also be heard? (At least there's more black folks in Florida than in Idaho, so it won't always be awkward silence.)
