Don’t know your history or your Bible

Letters to the Editor

In response to the recent letter [Aug. 9 issue] from Al Knowles: Al, you don’t know either history or the Bible.

Forest used to hit fires fast and hard, we didn’t run scared...

Letters to the Editor

Being a 25-year retired firefighter from the Nez Perce National Forest, I’ve been watching what is going on with the fires in the area. My question is ‘What happened to the real Forest Service Fire Organization’?

Dumping the building ordinance a good idea

Clearwater County is considering dumping their building ordinance. Good for them.

Disgusted with who left terrible camp mess

Letters to the Editor

Last Sunday, July 30, while riding the Milner Trail (along the Grangeville-Salmon Road) we came across this shocking site! Not only did these partiers leave a horrible amount of alcohol cans and bottles and trash strewn for hundreds of feet all around (even clear into the forest) but they also left a smoldering smoking hot fire!

What attorneys would call a ‘sweet deal’

Letters to the Editor

Dear Idaho County Commissioner: In regards to the article on “Solid waste reform still in works; fees, costs still on in Idaho County” Idaho County Free Press dated Aug. 2. Back a few years ago when Walco was the county garbage collector, they had certain size of dumpsters that were full most of the time, but basically kept them empty.

Why is this going on in the land of the free?

Letters to the Editor

Please take time to look at this world of ours. Look across the oceans at our so-called friends. Look at our government; see how it is helping you and your family. The children do not know history, note, the true history of this country.

Overwhelmed by faith of girl to save Kooskia Opera House

Letters to the Editor

That little girl’s faith and generosity left me overwhelmed. Four times that little brown-haired, brown-eyed girl reiterated her assurance … save the opera house.

Perhaps the Canadian border is the problem?

Letters to the Editor

These people are as rude and inconsiderate of other folks as I have ever seen.

Harangue against Trump unsubstantiated

Letters to the Editor

How did the Free Press find space to publish Joan Kopsczynski’s unsubstantiated harangue against our President, Donald Trump? To begin with, as our duly elected president, President Trump represents us Americans. All of us, across the board. I take Ms. Kopsczynski’s disrespect as if she had slapped my father in the face.

Russian sanctions bill intensifies conflict

Letters to the Editor

Congress by almost unanimous votes in both House and Senate has made it clear that Congress had rather destroy the President by increasing the risk of war than to avoid conflict with Russia by normalizing relations. Trump by vetoing this bill would prove the false charge that he is in league with Putin.

Anyone still consider Trump their savior?

Letters to the Editor

We’ve all been swindled at some point by a fast-talking salesman who promoted a simple product or simple ideas. After we buy the product there is a period of dissonance where we may experience dissatisfaction. We remind ourselves that we shouldn’t have bought it in the first place — it was “too good to be true.”

Risch legislation: who will it help and how?

Letters to the Editor

Open letter to Senator Risch: I read your guest opinion in the Idaho County Free Press, published July 19, in which you propose legislation for the Small Business Administration to oversee the impact of regulations on small businesses. I have a few questions regarding the small businesses to which you refer and of which federal regulations they need relief. Do you know the definition of “small business?”

USFS destroys history as fast as it can

Letters to the Editor

I went to Florence July 8 and I went to the cemetery. I noticed the U.S.F.S. is up to its usual tricks. They went into the cemetery and had all the trees cut and packed out of the cemetery. Why, all I can think of, is to expose the wooden grave markers to the elements so they would rot down quicker. To do this, to my way of thinking, is destroying history.
