Re: “Dam Proposal on the Weiser River Trail Calls for Sacrifice

Or, we could finally admit that water isn't an individual property right, but a community good, and get rid of these ridiculous individual and corporate water rights.

Re: “Expect Monday Morning Delays at Cole and Fairview

I wonder if ADA county is aware that those little yellow sections they are spending thousands to install throughout the county are no longer required by the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act). They removed the requirement from the rules because when there is snow or ice, these little squares end up being more dangerous than if they weren't there. I wonder what happens when they spend thousands to remove all of these after the first lawsuit. This has been the case for over a year now. Your tax dollars at work.

Re: “The Candidate Becomes The Issue: Rebecca Arnold's Run for Fourth Judicial District Court Judge

Membership on ACHD, considering their horrible record in working with communities, should be enough to eliminate her from contention.

Re: “Survey: Idaho Has Rudest Drivers in U.S.

And DaLinda shows us the problem. Maybe some of us don't know when we are being rude. Thanks for the laugh.

Re: “ACHD to City of Boise: Agree to Terms on Smart Meter Sensors Or Else

Can ACHD be voted out of existence? They aren't playing nice with anyone anymore. The bedroom communities have the resources to be responsible for their own streets now.

Re: “The Three 'B's' of Summer Movies: Blockbusters, B-Grades and Busts

What's funny about this list is that the top 10 are the best suited for Blu-Ray rental at home. They aren't cinematic pieces that play to the big screen format. Heck, A million Ways to Die in the West looks like it was shot in an old back lot at MGM with a video camera. I'm not saying these movies aren't good. I am just of the opinion that to pay $10+ on a movie these days requires something of a rather grand scale. Give me something to look at. And most of those movies play fine at the discount theaters.

Better yet, wait till November when the actual good movies start to come out for pre-oscar buzz. Best of all, at home you can make everyone turn their cell phones off.

Re: “Sex Trafficking May (or May Not) Be 'Happening at Every Hotel in Boise'

In the early 90's I worked at one of the high-end business hotels in Boise. I was a night auditor. Our primary clientele were business folks representing major corporations for extended stays.

There were prostitutes in our hotel almost every weekend, and most weeknights. From truck stop girls to very high-end call girls. I still know many people still in the hotel management world and this hasn't changed. As long as they aren't openly soliciting and aren't bothering guest, they are not bothered with their business transactions. The sex business has always been alive and well in Boise. John Cohen is either lying or he really has his head in the sand. I'm guessing it is a little of both.
