Martinez: sheriff isn’t good for the county

Letter to the Editor

When the whole city police department is in support of a new sheriff I think that has to start ringing some bells. There would be a few from the county, as well, but they are too scared of being demoted or fired for not supporting Giddings.

Ask Sup. Probert why on Lochsa exchange

Letter to the Editor

It has been three weeks since my letter to the editor was published in this newspaper asking Nez Perce National Forest supervisor Probert to give the public an update on the status of her proposed Upper Lochsa land exchange. It has been eight years since the USFS started spending our tax dollars trying to privatize 60 square miles of the Nez Perce National Forest.

Meyers: Has vision for better Dist. 7, Idaho

Letter to the Editor

When your eye is kept on the goal and you move forward by reaching out, listening with respect, and collaborating to build support and consensus. If you share Ken’s vision of a better Idaho, then vote for him on Nov 8th.

Community, family, friends blessed her

Letter to the Editor

May everyone who reads this be as fortunate as I. May you have friends, family, and a community who genuinely care about you, and enough love times 20.

Megaloads were a positive for Wallace

Letter to the Editor

Read your editorial “Local voice needed ...” [Sept. 14 issue]. When the local noise stopped the megaloads from using US 12, the reroute took the loads through Wallace, Idaho.

Martinez: many issues with sheriff’s actions

Letter to the Editor

All eligible Idaho County voters need to pay attention to what is happening in the Idaho County Sheriff’s election process.

Martinez: integrity, honesty, fortitude

Letter to the Editor

I can tell you from my experience that Carlos has a high level of integrity, honesty, and intestinal fortitude. These are the qualities that are needed in law enforcement, especially as a leader. Due to my personal experience with Carlos’s personal attributes, I will be voting for him for the position of Idaho County Sheriff as the Independent candidate.

Megaloads corrupted notion of an open, two-way course

Letter to the Editor

Mr. Rauzi crossed the centerline with his characterization [Sept. 14 editorial] of megaload opponents as having a “narrow political agenda” and lacking respect for the “historic use” of Highway 12 as a “private and commercial transport route.”

No guns in school; whole idea is stupid

Letter to the Editor

How has it come that all you think about is putting a gun in everyone’s hands?

Guns in school not the answer to problem

Letter to the Editor

What’s the difference between “good guys” with guns and “bad guys” with guns? If the “bad guy” follows the pattern as the perpetrator of evil and preconceived violence, then “he” also has the advantageous element of surprise.

Sheriff is not for constitutional carry

Letter to the Editor

I clearly heard Giddings state, “The Constitution does not give the right to carry concealed.” Sheriff Giddings is against constitutional carry!

Concert brought tears to eyes; wonderful

Letter to the Editor

What a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon! We would like to thank the Benedictine Sisters of Cottonwood for hosting the Gonzaga University Concert Choir.

Blaming those who did not speak out

Letter to the Editor

I blame a whole group of people for the damage of a few, not because they directly caused the vandalism, but because they did not speak out against it.

Grateful for concert, cultural offerings

Letter to the Editor

My wife and I attended a performance of the Gonzaga University Concert Choir on Sunday at the Monastery of St. Gertrude. This was an amazing experience provided by the two organizations, Gonzaga and St. Gertrude.

Many responded to Monday fire; thanks!
