Correction: Title 'Bass Drop' should read 'The Drop' as the work's name.

Re: “Boise Dance Co-op Dazzles in its Fourth Year

Thank you for reviewing BDC Performance. Just for clarification, the teenage dancers in "Fractured", are Idaho Regional Ballet.
Thank you again.

Re: “Boise Dance Co-op Dazzles in its Fourth Year

I think it's important to acknowledge that the piece "fractured" was performed by the Idaho Regional Ballet and students of Eagle Performing Arts Center.

Re: “Shoppers Without Borders: Boise's New Mobile Market

Gotta confess, I was thinking more of the local merchants - "Reggie's Veggies," the Stonehenge (Overland/Columbus) etc., as opposed to Walmart or Freddie's, when I composed my comment.

Re: “The Book of Mormon Announces Pre-Show Ticket Lottery for Boise Shows

So let me get this straight: I got my ducks in a row, promptly went online last March, paid my money up front, and purchased two tickets at $80 apiece (plus an additional $20 for "facility fees" and "ticketing fees", for a grand total of $180) for "The Book of Mormon."

Four months later, those who either procrastinated or lost out are granted a chance to buy equally good seats for the bargain basement price of $27.50 apiece. Yes, it's a lottery and your chance of winning was poor. But does this arrangement seem fair? (Perhaps a fairer arrangement would be to lower their outrageous, Broadway-level prices for everyone.)

"The Book of Mormon" lottery I witnessed (20 tickets for about 200 waiting hopefuls) seemed little more than a way of getting participants to hand over their e-mail addresses and telephone numbers for future marketing purposes.

Re: “Shoppers Without Borders: Boise's New Mobile Market

The produce comes from farmers who sell at the Boise Farmers' Market, and are also trying to make a living growing and selling food. Not to mention competing with the Wal-Marts of the world, whose employees are the ones using food stamps so that Wal-Mart can get away with paying them a minimum wage that is in no way a living wage. And competing with cheap grocery store processed foods, which our government also systematically subsidizes. I think the grocery stores can probably handle the competition.

Re: “Shoppers Without Borders: Boise's New Mobile Market

To bikeboy, I think you may have one detail wrong. This "government subsidized produce" is from our local farmers markets. It looks like this mobile market is only encouraging people who already receive SNAP benefits to eat more local and fresh. Shouldn't we want that? I know I would rather have someone spend $10 dollars buying from local farmers than at Wal Mart buying cheap food. Plus, I have been to this market once to check it out, and they are only at certain spots for a couple of hours a week. I think our other merchants should be able to compete with a produce stands that only sells for a couple of hours, right?

Re: “Travels with Sharlie

My mother saw Sharlie in the early 1960's. She said that she looked across the lake and saw three humps in the water. She was very shocked by what she saw. She never saw him again. But after seeing him, she became a believer. She was not the type to believe in aliens or monsters. One time in 1983, my husband and I were laying on the beach when a huge wave came toward us. We had to run into the trees to keep from being hit by the wave. There were no boats in the area. We couldn't figure out what caused the wave, unless, of course, Sharlie had swam past us.

Re: “Shoppers Without Borders: Boise's New Mobile Market

Other than the fact that it's government-subsidized competition against merchants who are trying to make a living selling food, it sounds like a good idea. (But on the bright side, when those merchants go out of business they can probably get some government-subsidized produce from the rolling produce stand.)

Re: “Beyond Borders: Boise State's Mexico Week

Yeah, a connection that the American People in general had nothing to do with. It was the farmers who started the whole mess.

Re: “Potions and Paganism in Boise

In the years that I have been a part of this community; I have found a welcome, inclusive family. Even small children and animals are loved and nurtured here. A wonderful part of being a teacher here is the open flow of communication in TVW's learning system. I love that I always learn more than I ever teach. Bella's Grove is a warm place where love, wisdom and personal growth are the main thrust . . with a dash of magical mayhem . .

Re: “Potions and Paganism in Boise

Been going there 10 years. Love everyone. I have formed life long friendships, taught classes there, and I have become a far better person from just being there.

Re: “Potions and Paganism in Boise

It is nice to read a straight forward report. Anyone that starts a store like this has guts. Few do it for the money as monkey is rarely the big thing about such a store. I sincerely hope that it is profitable and successful and will get support from all the local Pagans.
