Editors' Picks

When the big boys in town swept nearly 1,000 people off the well-padded payrolls of Micron, we could hear the printers at Kinko's pumping out resumes from here. As engineers and other tech geeks looked for new work, we noticed for-sale signs plopping into yards across the city. "Honey, we're headed back to Silicon Valley. Daddy's got a new job, and it ain't in the Gem State." Local realtors noticed that the softening Boise real estate market wasn't helped by the news of Micron's layoffs, as buyers suddenly felt like their time had come.
