  • Police Protest

    Instead of watching for law-breakers, members of the Boise Police Union will be the ones protesting tonight.

    The Boise Police Union will look decidedly un-police like when it stages a protest in front of Boise City Hall beginning at 5:30 p.m. in an effort to draw attention to stalled contract negotiations.

  • Hide the drugs!

    Attorney General Alberto Gonzales is a-coming to Boise. Does this make U.S. Attorney Thomas Moss nervous for his job?

    Nah. Gonzales is here to meet with the Treasure Valley Metro Anti-Gang Task Force at Fort Boise Community Center Tuesday morning.

    Should be interesting to see Gonzales, just after I've seen former U.S. Attorney David Iglesias, who had some choice things to say about his former bosses.

  • Construction Slowdown at Tamarack?

    The truck traffic through Donnelly isn't what it used to be. Apparently construction at Tamarack Resort's Village Plaza has slowed down dramatically, as the resort reviews its overall spending.

    A memo was sent late last week to all Tamarack employees, quoted in the Star News of McCall, saying that rumors of a total shutdown of construction were inaccurate.

  • R.I.P Victor Pacania

    One of Boise State Radio's best voices has been silenced. Longtime DJ Victor Pacania, host of "A Private Idaho," died Saturday morning.

    Pacania, who had pancreatic cancer, was a well-loved radio host who once said, "I don’t know what to call my show. It’s just four hours of whatever seems to fit.”

    KBSU general manager John Hess has a few words about Pacania, and the station also has a tribute, with photos, to Pacania.

  • Update: Gonzales Shouted Out?

    What was supposed to be a press conference on the lawn of the Boise Community Center with U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, wasn't.

    Instead, about 100 protesters singing songs and chanting slogans against U.S. war crime policies appear to have drowned out Gonzales's interest in coming outside.

    Instead, one of Gonzales's staff appeared, to announce that the news conference would be moved inside, away from the crowd, for press only.

    "Coward!" shouted several in the crowd.

    Even in Boise’s booming growth spurt, developers are feeling the pinch of a cooling housing market.

    Hubble Homes recently laid off 18 employees in direct response to the declining market for housing in the Treasure Valley.
