Re: “Singing With Angels

Saw the film in Utah - it's phenomenal. So much better than anything I expected and I highly recommend it.

Re: “Camp

Great movie. Incredible it is based on a real camp right here in Idaho! Very heartwarming story and well written. I loved that 50% of my proceeds will go back to our local camp to help foster children!

Re: “127 Hours

One of the best movies I have ever seen, James Franco perfectly portray's the desperation and confusion I'm sure was going through Aron Ralston's head during the ordeal. The score, composed by A.R. Rahman (with the help of Sigur Ros, Dido, and others) is genius and so perfectly goes along with the action, it seems the universe itself was playing it. This is the greatest movie of the past few years and is a must see for anyone and everyone. (some parts are rather graphic, so be careful if your squeamish)

Re: “The Counselor

A disappointment. However, cool furniture. (The scene where Fassbender & Cruz decide to escape to "Boise" is both painful and priceless.)

Re: “Proposed Boise Ordinance Dials Down Muffler Noise

Disturbing, excessive or offensive motor vehicle noise, smoke, or exhaust interferes with a person's right to enjoy life and property," reads the ordinance, which goes on to state its purpose as promoting "the public health, comfort, and convenience of the City's inhabitants and its visitors."
With that being said wouldn't that infringe on a person's right to enjoy life and their property. That is how some people get enjoyment in their life even if their vehicle and or motorcycle is a little on the loud side even from the factory. No matter what laws are passed there will always be people that are offended in some shape or form let's stop the government from putting more rules and regulations on a place where we call the land of the free

Re: “Dry Creek, Dry Purse

["They disagreed with us and they beat us up pretty bad, and quite frankly, I don't see where I'm going to support spending county taxpayer dollars on an organization that doesn't support the county," said Commissioner Jim Tibbs during a June 19 budget hearing.]
What he meant to say was that he was angry and lashed out at whomever he could to try to influence and silence the voice that made him feel small.
From adaswcd.org: "Conservation districts were organized nationwide as part of the soil conservation movement of the 1930s and 40s in response to the Dust Bowl ecological disaster. We are one of fifty conservation districts in Idaho tasked with leading efforts to conserve, sustain, and enhance Idahos private and state lands." Visit their site and see for yourself all the things they do to "SUPPORT THE COUNTY", contrary to Tibbs' little opinion. I'd put them up against his own accomplishments any day.

Re: “Dry Creek, Dry Purse

Not only are the commissioners short-sighted, but they have demonstrated yet again, that they're petty, little, sensitive tyrants who will threaten the employer of any person who dares speak out against their oh-so-wise judgments. This is not the first time they've pulled a stunt like this, and it doesn't surprise me at all, given how weak-minded and ego-sensitive they have proven to be. Face it, they're not always right. Their decision was contentious. Many disagreed with it. They could have chosen otherwise, but... as always, sided with big development instead of conservation. Is it any surprise to anyone? So what if Tibbs got his little feelings hurt. Get over it. You made your decision. Live with it. Don't be so petty as to threaten funding to a county conservation district. They do more to actually support "the county" than this group of nitwits called commissioners does... unless you're a real estate developer.

Would be great to target Fri/Sat cruise & street racing. Detriment to downtown business, tax base, and property values. Chase 'em back to 2C.

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

This is typical of the ignorance and complacency of Boise. Never mind the people or quality of life. Create a hazard in the air and an ugly carbon footprint so some defense contractor can get corporate welfare.

Boise loves pollution. They shut down streets at every opportunity so we have to drive out of our way, stop and idle, polluting the air and wasting gas so the lastest crowd of walkers, joggers, bikers, or whatever can monopolize downtown.

Rip up the foothills and build McMansions everywhere, but make sure traffic is snarled so pollution (always bad in Boise) is even worse. Make sure we waste gas sitting there, engines running, in the heat.. road rage results... it is ugly.

Boise does not care.

Boise City's motto must be, If you get there on time, it's not our fault.

What a smug, unresponsive bunch they are, hiding behind their affluent, smug friends.

Commerce doesn't belong in the foothills, period. Open space is fine the way it is.

Ada County Commissioners remain short-sighted. I am an Ada county taxpayer, and am happy to have my tax dollars support the Ada SWCD.

A neighbor, in an apartment complex, has a muffler that sounds like a 65 foot Chris craft motor boat and it's driving me nuts!

Re: “Snowpocalypse to Floodpocalypse

We'll see what happens this coming winter as there will be an above average carry over in the lakes into next spring. Another wet winter and we'll be right back into another crisis. It will take a major flood to get the govt to pay for another dam, so until that happens it will be too much or too little water in the lakes.

When will everyone stop crowing about a single convention, the Epidemiologists. Is that all you got?

Did you know about the cloud seeding they do in Boise river drainage during the wet season the bring more snow and rain? Very successful 16-17.

Please start with motorbikes and the noisy careless reckless dickheads who ride them. They have higher emissions than cars and trucks too.
