A benefit to own WPT land but at what cost?

Letter to the Editor

Idaho elected officials have forgotten a basic principle of government - their sworn duty to represent all people in their jurisdiction by putting public interests over personal ideology and special interest. Our elected officials have failed miserably.

Sheriff a disgrace; should turn in badge

Letter to the Editor

Gidding’s comments are appalling, insensitive and downright offensive to the community of Burns, the employees of the refuge and the Pauite Tribe

Outdoor recreation benefits Idaho; lands trade is questionable

Letter to the Editor

How do the economic impact numbers for outdoor recreation compare in Idaho and across the country?

Common sense our officers don’t have

Letter to the Editor

Whatever happened to a government for the people by the people? Way back when I was growing up, the policemen were taught to de-escalate a situation, not to let it get out of control like they do today, just so they could shoot someone numerous times when a warning shot would have probably done the job, or at least shoot them in the arm or leg, not kill them and then shoot them numerous times.

Witless attempt to rid country of forest land

Letter to the Editor

Commissioner Chmelik underestimates the intelligence of his constituents. Most of us can see the inconsistency ....

Compare their crime to that of conspiring cadre of officials

Letter to the Editor

Okay, so maybe moving in and taking over the Malheur wildlife refuge in Oregon wasn’t the wisest, best approach for patriotic justice seekers to use to show support for their imprisoned brothers, nor in any other attempts to appeal to those far-more-permanent government occupiers for “redress of grievances,” a right secured and supposedly guaranteed to us all within the freedom documents founding our nation....

Better to highlight those who pay taxes, keep up communities

Letter to the Editor

Bear Claw: So let me get this straight – you have a man that’s too lazy to work, too lazy to plant his own garden, is unable to put his food up in a way to keep and not spoil, depends on neighbors so he can receive mail and provide him with garden foods. He joins a church so he can receive more assistance....

Chmelik playing an elaborate shell game

Letter to the Editor

Something is rotten in “Landmark” — i.e. The Western Landmark Foundation created and promoted by Idaho County Commissioner Jim Chmelik— an organization with no oversight or accountability.

Process simple to file for county position

The following information is for anyone thinking about filing to run for an Idaho County position, i.e. commissioner....

Instead of vilifying, thank legislators for fight to keep us free

Letter to the Editor

Robert G. Schultze made some interesting accusations in his letter of Jan. 20. First, let’s examine the “greedy gun lobby.” I presume he means the NRA, which was established in 1871.

County’s expenditure is misguided, a waste

Letter to the Editor

I once thought it was a passing thing. But after three years in a row, I figure it’s about that time of year for our commissioners to skim another $5,000 off our taxes and send the check down to attorney Ken Ivory, in Utah, so that he can continue to taunt the people who own public lands, you and me.

Imagine these three...

Imagine a picture of Obama, Kerry and Hillary ....

Good community support for 4-H club

Letter to the Editor

The lively livestock horse project would like to thank the community for supporting us by buying our baked goods.

No more Bushes, no more Clintons ...

Letter to the Editor

I will never look at a GUCCI bag again. No more Bushes, no more Clintons, no more elite baggage handlers. Those alligator handbags are out of my closet. In fact, no closet I have will sport these handbags.

Rules for English a sick joke on mankind

Letter to the Editor

Well, after reading “Parts of Speech: Seeing How Words Work,” I have come to the conclusion that learning how to build a rocket ship, with no prior knowledge, or assistance, in the middle of the night, in pitch black darkness, blindfolded and with my hands tied behind my back would be extremely more manageable to understand than the written English language!
