  • Boy Scouts Sued for Sex Abuse

    A former Idaho resident has filed a lawsuit against the Boy Scouts of America and the Ore-Ida Council of the Boy Scouts alleging the organizations did not do enough to protect him, and other scouts, from sexual abuse by a known abuser.

    The suit, filed Monday in Ada County, is the first to take advantage of a change in state law that lengthens the statue of limitations for reporting childhood sexual abuse.

  • Watch Out Sali

    It looks like there’s one more candidate crowding into the race for the state’s 1st Congressional District seat, but this time it’s a Republican.

    Nampa resident Matt Salisbury has announced he will run against incumbent Bill Sali for the Republican nomination.

  • So THAT'S What Gonzales Was Doing Here

    Never mind the protesters. Turns out U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales was sizing up a new hire when he visited Boise recently.

    Just got the announcement from Idaho's U.S. Attorney, Thomas Moss, that he was taking a position at the Justice Department, in Washington.

    He starts his new job Monday. How's that for moving fast! He'll run the Idaho office from Washington. Um, how's that again?

    Who says Mondays are slow news days?

    Things are happening all over the valley this morning:

    Pack up the cubicle toys, geek, and hit the road. (KTVB)

    Dude is sick and tired of rubber-stamping your subdivisions. Arm needs a break. (Boise Guardian)

    Do a crime in Idaho, and we'll extradite you to Mordor. (AP)

    Perky is out. Fluff, so yesterday. (BW)

  • The Rex Rammell Candidacy

    It's hard to see this as anything other than a grudge match, but campaigns have been built of flimsier things.

    We speak, of course, of the U.S. Senate candidacy of Rex Rammell. Why is his name newsworthy? Only because he let a herd of domestic elk escape his ranch, then got into a series of public spats with wildlife officials, law enforcement, and one guy who, at the time, was running our state.

    So when Lt. Gov. Jim Risch said he was looking at running for the seat that might get vacated by U.S. Sen. Larry Craig, Rammell wasn't slow on the draw, either.
