DairyAire, surely you're not so obtuse as to think that was a serious suggestion. Sometimes people use hyperbole to make a point in the English language. Read a book sometime.

That's just what we need - another burrito place. Seriously, can we just put a moratorium on building permits for Mexican-esque restaurants?

The claim that the closure was unexpected is ridiculous. What did they expect? To then go further and place the blame on IDFG is just dishonest. What really happened here, is the whole thing backfired and made for bad optics so they're trying to backpedal. It's too late, though. They will fo…

Bliss is the only district that has a meaningful loss in funding on the list provided. Looks to me like they either need a special cutout (cost neutral, mind you), or it's a sign that they need to seriously consider consolidating some services with Hagerman or Glenns Ferry.

desertman10 commented on Stapilus: More jobs, but more pay?

Even if you have a degree, wages in Idaho are markedly lower than they are elsewhere in the country. How much is the exportation of our best and brightest to better paying jobs in other states contributing to our inability to hit the 60% goal? Getting more people educated is only a small par…

It cracks me up that all of these democratic candidates start out by saying that they're pro-gun, then immediately follow that up with a big fat "but". Perhaps more telling than anything, is Michelle Stennett's statement in the last paragraph of her response where she is amazed at …

Linda, Paulette Jordan wants a gun registry and mandatory training for some firearms, as well as red-flag laws. She can say that she's pro-gun all she wants, but these are the same garbage ideas we hear from all the other leftists. They're Jim Crow laws for gun rights. The founders meant it …

Even as an avid hunter, the image of the baboons makes my stomach turn. It's obviously legal, and depending on the circumstances, arguably ethical, but the optics are bad. It reminds me of the whole situation a year or two ago with the Bowmars spear-hunting black bears in Canada. Regardless …

I don't believe art should ever be publicly funded. If it doesn't have a broad enough appeal to survive on its own, why should taxpayers be compelled to support it. If the public wanted the art and saw value in it, they would have spent the money voluntarily. Fix some roads or something.

I don't disagree with the community service idea. I do disagree with the outdoor burning and campfire moratorium. If we want to limit these campfires to specific types of fire rings, that's one thing, but I would be interested to see how many wildfires each year are caused by campfires vs. a…
