Re: “One Man's Treasure

The intent of A.R.P.A was never intended to be used to the extreme it is used today by Archaeologists, they are making their own laws to insure their jobs.

Re: “One Man's Treasure

I find envy to be the biggest difference between one who enjoys detecting and those who think it should be outlawed. Most of what I find is worthless to everyone but me, because I enjoyed the happy moment of finding it.

Miserable people with no hobbies to entertain themselves I find always turn their nose up at others who know how to live life and are happy.

Re: “One Man's Treasure

Metal detecting is a wholesome family pastime, and the idea that everything should be left in the ground is ridiculous. Who are we leaving it to? The highway crew, the shopping center developer, the farmer, the tornado, hurricane or flood? People who detect clean up the trash and share their finds via community displays. No one is "stealing" anything and to use that word is insulting to those of us who enjoy the hobby.

Re: “One Man's Treasure

I'm sure the archaeologists who had "found" King Tut's treasures donated everything they "found" to museums.... right?? If it is in the ground, nobody knows it is there..not even the archaeologists. Why get upset when an item gets found by a metal detectorist, when the archaeologist didn't even know it was there to begin with? If it is so important to the archaeology people, they should have already known about it and retreived the item from the ground.

Re: “One Man's Treasure

Good article, in as much as I agree with most of what has been said.
Items found should be for all to see, and not to sell for a profit.

The history of an artefact belongs to everyone.

Re: “Chair Affair 2014: Adapt

Poorly reported BW. Found out too late that the trade show and lecture series took place at Boise Centre on the Grove on Friday, April 25. At the very least maybe could've considered the heading "April 25-26"?

Re: “Treasure Valley Kite Festival

This is the first announcement I've seen. Thanks, BW, for bringing it to my attention. I used to hold kitemaking workshops and an annual Idaho Kite Festival in Pocatello, but haven't gotten back into it much since moving to the Treasure Valley. It will be fun to meet some kiters.

Re: “A Seed of Anxiety

Well, the first time I had a major panic attack the doctor put me on xanax but it messed with my head really badly and I had memory issues. My discharge papers noted that while medicated by it I had little to no acknowledgement of externally inflicted bodily harm/pain. What I do remember is waking up the next day with a swollen ankle and multiple bruises that hurry like hell from walking into things or just letting the car door close on me.
Later, someone recommended me this treatment, and I’m very grateful with it, i can go anywhere i want without problem, no anxiety, no panic attacks, i'm a new person. Read this article, it helped me a lot :

Re: “The Wrong Side of History

To John Kernkamp
I AM a native Idahoan. My family came out here in covered wagons from Joplin MO. My family has lived here since before Idaho was a state. I have been taught the difference between right and wrong and discrimination of any kind is WRONG! It is you, sir, who are forcing your views of hatred and discrimination on the majority of us who would still like to hope that once more Idaho can be too great for hate.

Re: “The Wrong Side of History

Is John KernKamp a liberal progressive? What a forward thinking argument. Dear John, let me spell it out for you, if you can spell. You are a d-u-m-b-a-s-s. Oops sorry, I meant you are right. I appreciate your progressive opinion. And god bless Joseph Hennequin and the us of a, and people who somehow made it through the ice age to walk erect. I'm sick of people not listenin good. I'm packin Joe and John. I'm packin.

Re: “The Wrong Side of History

Equality for All is what this country was founded upon, anyone that
Does not support equal rights cannot call themselves a patriot. Seperation of church and state dictates that our laws not be biased to one set of religious beliefs. Hate and bigotry are the only reason not to support adding the words. Jesus himself rebeled against the church and government of his day because they were currupt, Jesus stood by with the freaks and outcasts of society. So all you religious nuts need to stop and think wwjd? Those peaceful protesters are more like your own god than you could ever imagine. He summed up his teachings with the golden rule: treat each other as thyself.

Re: “The Wrong Side of History

What this boils down to is that sometimes there are people that need help, need protection. There are those kinds of people that put themselves out there to help their neighbors, ensure children are protected, even put themselves in harms way without questioning if that person fits their criteria of what they agree with. If someone falls into a river, you don't stop and ask "Do they have the same faith as me? Is their skin the right color? Do they love someone of the same gender?" You help them out of the river. Unless you are awful. And then there are those kinds of people that pick on those that need their help, that judge others and live in a world of self-blinding opinion. Sometimes there are lessons we are afforded, challenges that we are faced with. These tests about who we are, as people, are not easy, or they wouldn't be real challenges. When you are faced with a decision about how to treat another human being, and you choose anything but love, REGARDLESS of how you believe or feel about them, you fail. I will always help my neighbors, even if I don't agree with them. I will always protect someone that needs it. Ask yourself which kind of person you really are. And if you think this is just some philosophical discussion, you need to pay more attention. Gay kids are committing suicide at 4 times the rate of other kids, as one example. This is not right, and if you believe "good riddance", then I suppose you are already lost.

This whole business of claiming this will impose a gay agenda on others is laughable. On one side of the issue, you have people dying or being physically harmed, kicked out of their homes or denied work/fired. On the other side, you have your feelings hurt or you feel it's icky or against your faith. Really? Aren't you even a little embarrassed at how judgmental that sounds?

Re: “The Wrong Side of History

Um, Joseph, you kinda do push being straight on gay people. "Marriage is between one man and one woman!" That's pretty much a straight mentality. And I'm a little unclear how preventing young people from committing suicide because they are told they are wrong and horrible is "pushing preferences on you". I had no idea that you would be forced to have an Abercombie model move in with you and make you gay breakfast, or be kidnapped and have your hair done. This argument is something fit for SNL, not real life. The protections being requested have nothing to do with you. Stop trying to push your straight preferences, by denying equal protections, on the gay community. Maybe there should be separate drinking fountains? Maybe gay people should sit at the back of the bus? You are on the wrong side of history, just like the article points out, so maybe you should put on your big girl panties and stop being a bigot.

Re: “The Wrong Side of History

Government, rather it be state or federal, does not define marriage. God already did that. All the arguing in the world won't change that. Said and Done.

Re: “Curtis Stigers: Capital High School Jazz Benefit Concert

Thanks Curtis for supplementing the taxpayers of Boise by offering your incredible talent to such an amazing philanthropic cause even though my property taxes will go up and my favorite new common core will bring about the end of electives in schools. And thanks Tom Luna, Butch Otter and the first lady, JR Simplepot, James Risch, Michael Crappo, Arnie Duncan, Bill Gates and all our good pals for ensuring educational success for all Idahoans and Americans. But most of all, thanks to the BSU Broncos and Coach Pete and the new Coach Pete. Go Broncos -- god bless the USA and the American way.

Re: “The Wrong Side of History

The Age of Enlightenment (17th - 18th C) has yet to reach the majority of Idaho legislators and the ever-decreasing percentage of the population who are local and elect them - no "Add the Words," no medicade expansion to cover the working poor, no increase in the minimum wage, no needed funding for public education, no realization that the Feds pay Idaho more than they collect in taxes. Instead we get pandering to the wingnuts on the right.

Looks as if we wait 20 years until the migration from the West Coast swamps the the boat and brings positive change.
