Re: “City Hall Plaza Renovation Begins, Closing Capitol Blvd. Entrance Until Late August

Boise city's unofficial motto:
"If you can get there, it's not our fault."

More wasted money and congested traffic. They do all they can to close downtown streets, prevent parking downtown, close off necessary streets for ridiculous reasons, and cause traffic congestion with resulting wasted gas, pollution, and short tempers.

Boise hates to have people get downtown, or enjoy being there. How bizarre.

Darling Rollercoaster was the most most unexpectedly jaw-dropping act I saw at Treefort 5. So glad they're continuing their trajectory as The Sun and The Mirror.

Re: “After Emotional Hearing, Idaho House Panel OKs Bill to License Sign Language Interpreters

In Michigan, we passed a law that requires all interpreters to be certified through RID (the NIC exam), BEI, or EIPA (for K-12 interpreters). I believe the law has saved lives, and has provided a tool to Deaf people for finally obtaining qualified interpreters. Yes, there have been struggles, as we have a need for more qualified interpreters. I'm still in favor of the law, and I think the natural next step is to focus on increasing the availability of education programs for interpreters.

Re: “Once in a Lifetime

Respectfully, professor, you must never have seen a total eclipse! A 90% partial eclipse is by NO MEANS anything CLOSE to seeing the full glory of totality. Boise is NOT a good place to see this eclipse. Please, everyone reading this article - get north into the path. Lots of great info on this is available on the various sites quoted in the comments, including

YOU MUST BE IN THE PATH of totality to see all the wonder of a total eclipse. please do NOT stay in Boise, or you will wonder what all the fuss was about - and you will have missed the show! Get north INTO the path! No joke...

Oh yes, and the filters you need in order to safely view the partial phases of the eclipse cost no more than a dollar or so. Get them now!

Re: “Once in a Lifetime

Also, this year's total solar eclipse will not be the first in Idaho in 99 years. The last one was in February, 1979. The 1918 eclipse was the last one to go across the entire country from Pacific to Atlantic coasts.

Re: “Once in a Lifetime

From the northernmost tip of Craters of the Moon, totality will last 1 min. 14 sec. Traveling a bit further north, to the center line, will increase the time of totality by 80%.

Re: “Climate Strange: Idaho's Tug of War on Climate Change

Carbon Fraud aptly named. The atmosphere is not analogous to an actual "greenhouse." It is a metaphor for what happens in a system that can trap heat, like a greenhouse. The earth's troposphere is 5 - 9 mi thick, not 8ft. The gases' (CO2, O2, N2, H2O, etc) interactions with solar radiation and earth's thermal radiation is much different in an 8ft high than in a 5-9 mi high box. It is also different at extreme concentration differences. Please show us the experimental data you are citing and the extrapolations used to compensate for the different concentrations, geometric differences, surface difference, effects of the glass or other material used for the enclosure, etc. Without this information, you're just being obtuse and blowing hot air. And contrary to Mick's belief, the 2nd Law of Thermo does not apply to a open system like our atmsophere.

Re: “Idaho Senate Tangles With Controversial 'Faith Healing' Bill

The only place this is controversial is in the legislature, most folks in Idaho think it's crazy to kill or maim children as a sacrifice to a god. And these are the same people so worried about Sharia law.

Re: “Idaho Senate Tangles With Controversial 'Faith Healing' Bill

It is appalling that these politicians allow their personal religious beliefs regarding the power of prayer to dictate the law. If you place your hand in a pot of boiling water, you will get burned. No amount of prayer will alter that fact. However, this debate is not about the power of prayer vs. modern medicine. It is about the basic right of a child to be allowed free access to both and not be denied either. The fact that so many lawmakers cannot make that distinction is the heart of the matter.

I want to know why Al Gore, patron saint of the environmental movement in the US Congress and later on VEEP, just bought his SECOND mansion on the beaches of Monte Cito, California, where you would expect the rising seas to swallow up his new investment.…
