Re: “Southwest Idaho Ski Areas Navigate Changing Climate, Hard Economics

Lift served mountain biking and hiking and dining at Bogus would provide revenue three extra seasons every year. Open air concerts and a couple of sanctioned cross country and downhill races might help too. Build a gondola from downtown to Bogus and more money could travel up the mountain as well.

Re: “No, Thanks

I think spending $67,500 designing it was a waste, knowing full well that the City would likely have something to say about it and not thinking that giving someone in city hall a call before getting started would be a good idea. Why do we still have a highway district anyhow? Is there anyone (besides the highway district) who thinks that having two fiercely independant bodies operating conflicting agendas in the same space is efficient or even reasonable?

Re: “How Much Should Payette County Gas Drilling Permits Cost?

In consideration of the lasting impact of drilling operations and the potential harm from unknown hazards in this new boon of fracking, the counties should charge as high a fee as possible to make sure that environmental and human health affects can be mitigated with as little impact as possible the residents of the county. They should also be far sighted enough to negotiate a percentage of the gross (not net) revenue for every bit of gas extracted from every well in the county. They could use the added revenue to fix and maintain any number of school, road and infrastructure project they have ever neglected. Or just cave to out of state corps and give away the cow like the lawyers want.

Re: “North Idaho GOP Officials: Sheriff, Not Feds, Should Enforce Guns

Good argument Roetter, I remember early in my life that I argued that if you didn't like my ideas you were a buger-head.
