I was just doing research! I promise.

Re: “Adam Park, Former Bieter Spokesman, Will Compete For Open City Council Seat

No, we don't need to have the mayor surrounded with Yes Men than we need the Idaho Legislature being dominated by one political party. I don't know this guy, but we need independent thinkers. No organization is better off with people who all think alike.

Re: “Habitat For Humanity: All For One and One For All

I've worked on several builds, but stopped out of concern about the criteria: Next, a "family must have lived or worked in Ada County for six months, they must have been continuously employed for the last 12 months, and they must have a good credit record,"

The ramifications, I was told, are that many US citizens are not eligible if they fell on tough financial times (as we just say in the most recent near depression). However, if you have no financial record - as would be the case for immigrants - you would be able to qualify.

That issue has bothered me for years. Did that issue come up & what was the conclusion? I'd like to know. I've never repeated that concern because I didn't do my own research on it & just don't know what the reality is. I'd like to understand that issue better.

Re: “Idaho Transportation Department Greenlights Mega-Load for U.S. Highway 12

I'm not weighing in one way or the other, but we need to figure out how to let these projects continue. Is there something terribly wrong with letting mega-loads proceed?

Re: “Do The Math

You can sure tell we live in Idaho. I don't see a lot of discussion on student performance, just about the financial bottom line. That's a tad like not asking your mechanic to actually fix anything, but just make sure to charge the least.

Re: “Travis Manning

Exactly. Teachers have to put up with the education program du jour handed down by politicians. What a ridiculous way to run an education programs. We need to shut down the Supt of Public Education's office. Tom Luna is just another top down management politician.

Re: “Boise Votes 2011: Elections and Bicycles

Hate to be cynical, bot wake me up when the #1 item on a major company's list of wants when they relocate is bike paths. I've been involved in corporate relocations, never seen bike paths be the #1 issue. In context, we're doing pretty good there. It's good to do better, but I have an idea, why don't we focus on some of those things that are clearly our weaknesses? I hope we're not looking at the new City Council being so narrowly focused and too philosophically aligned to have a real dialog on taking this city in the right direction.
