June 22, 2018: What to Know 

  • First Lady Melania Trump made a surprise visit Thursday to a children's shelter in Texas to get an in-person look at the crisis that unfolded when thousands of immigrant children were separated from their parents at the U.S./Mexico border. But The New York Times reports that the faux white graffiti on the back of Mrs. Trump's jacket got nearly as much attention as the children. It read, "I really don't care. Do U?"
  • A developer that has worked with Amazon to build distribution centers around the world is proposing a 850,000-square-foot warehouse in northern Nampa. The Idaho Press-Tribune reports that the applicant hasn't confirmed that an Amazon distribution center would be part of the Canyon County project, but the project application does include the word "Amazon."

  • The 2018 float season on the Boise River officially begins this afternoon. Ada County officials said equipment rentals at Barber Park will start at noon, but reminded the public that the Boise River is never completely free and clear of all potential hazards. As of this morning, the river at Boise's Glenwood Bridge was running about 800 cubic-feet-per-second.

  • Former Boise State University basketball star Chandler Hutchison was drafted by the Chicago Bulls last night. It's the first time in Boise State history that a former player was taken in the first round of the NBA draft, and Hutchison is the first Bronco to be drafted since 1999.
  • As expected, ABC is moving forward with a Roseanne spinoff without Roseanne Barr. Variety reports that the series will re-launch this fall with original Roseanne co-stars John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf and Sara Gilbert all on board.

  • Ann Hornaday, film critic for The Washington Post, has a rather stunning review of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which opens today. Bottom line: Hornaday is hoping that the movie is a box office flop. Hornaday says her "foul mood" following a preview screening, "curdled into a simmering rage."
