A short time ago I was standing in line at the Post Office on 4th Street. A Postal worker came out of the office. I asked her if she was the person I should talk to about a passport. She replied that she was and then kindly gave me some forms and told me to fill them out and bring them back …

The April 30 edition gave us a double dose of conservative crap — a real doubleheader. First, real Bob informs us that pipelines have proven to be “reliable” and cause little damage. Here’s a fact or two for real Bob: According to the Center for Biological Diversity, between 1986 and 2013 th…

“The political process is broken.” This is a phrase is used to describe what is wrong in Washington, D.C. Is it the process or the players? The process has worked in good and bad times in the United States. The problem is the players. The United States Senate is devoid of moral and ethical j…

I stated in the beginning when Trump rode his escalator to announce his run for president that if he won he would be a nightmare for our country, and I stick by that statement. Trump and the Republicans are still pushing the big lie that Trump won the election.

Ever notice how the Democrats who work for the education system and represent the labor unions have nothing to say until you threaten their collective bargaining? That’s all they seem to care about. In a third reply commentary on this topic in the Post Register, Kent Granat uses that lefty h…

Mr. Beck stated there had been a “66% increase in the last 10 years in education.” Thank goodness! Think back to why we had to increase. In 2008 the Idaho State Legislature changed the way of funding education. It worked when times were good, but we hit the financial crash and funding bottom…

Timothy Leary was a Harvard professor (where the brightest of the bright attend and instruct) and a proponent of LSD use and coined the phrase, "Turn on, tune in, drop out." Two high school associates joined this culture, and I saw one of them 35 years ago, and it was obvious his speech was …

Lt. Gov. Janice McGeachin and her new indoctrination task force have finally frightened me enough to express my concerns for the future of democracy and our country. I'm an old woman with limited computer skills, and I don't indulge in social media, other than email and texting on a tiny com…

In response to Vic Allen’s “Snowflake” guest opinion, I suggest he might want to read the bill. The bill does not suggest, imply or require that history about racial issues will not be taught. Rather, it seems that Allen is just echoing what progressives and media outlets report about the bill.

If May is as dry as March and April, water will be rationed in southeastern Idaho this summer, especially Idaho Falls, where the mayor has totally ignored getting the city under a metered water system, which would stop the hundreds of thousands of gallons of water from being totally wasted i…

Talk about cancel culture. Our elected Legislature has essentially canceled education in Idaho. They’ve stopped money for schools, colleges and refused pre-school federal grants based on far-fetched conspiracy theories. They won’t even pay teachers anymore. Imagine no education at all next y…

Julie Nawrocki, a local math teacher, does a good job in her April 2 op-ed demonstrating what’s wrong with the government-run education system. She writes that she’s in a war. She views her adversaries as anyone who dares to criticize the government education system. Any critique is akin to …

Louise, I see an entirely different beast invading our schools. The left has given control of our schools to the cancel culture beast. There is no place in today’s schools for the Constitution, our history and the things that have made America great.

It’s been a tough race with lots of Republicans in heated competition for the title, but I’ve reached a decision. Please consider this letter my nomination of Ed Humphreys for Biggest Snowflake for his attempt to remodel the entire state of Idaho’s educational system as his personal safe spa…

Peggy Bush’s April 6 letter criticizing Dr. Kenneth Krell is misleading. In February 2021, COVID-19 became the number one cause of death in the United States. With COVID-19 deaths averaging 2,400 per day, it outranked heart disease (2,068 per day) and cancer (1,639 per day) as of Feb. 20.

While Mr. Hunter is so concerned about raising taxes for the wealthy and large corporations, we are more concerned about average taxpayers and small businesses bearing the burden of paying far more taxes. Unfortunately, our tax system is not fair. The rich and corporations with unlimited acc…

In his presidential inaugural address, and in other venues, Biden promoted unity, bipartisanship and moderation and was probably elected on these positions and values. Now we know all words and lies. Thirty-seven presidential executive orders later (and counting), it is evident Biden has bec…

A big thank you to Eastern Idaho Public Health and all the people at Waterfront for their fast and hassle-free shot program. I hope that all who need a vaccination can get one soon. Thank you also to all the people that are helping with this program in our area. What a great job you are doing.

Speaking of “death of democracy,” let’s look at House Resolution 1: Any lawsuits challenging HR 1 could only be filed in the District of Columbia. It mandates automatic voter registration and forces states to accept absentee ballots up to 10 days after election.

The Growing Climate Solutions Act is bipartisan and market-based legislation that would make it easier for agricultural producers, here in Idaho and across the country, to voluntarily participate in carbon credit markets. These credits would allow growers, large and small, to earn income for…

Michael Armstrong recently suggested I move to District 93 and run for the school board to recreate the five liberal to one conservative dynamic that we saw a few years ago. While all school boards have navigated tremendous challenges this past year, Armstrong’s suggestion that District 93’s…

Thanks for your editorial on March 24 addressing our local virus problem — leading the nation. I was wondering why Idaho Falls and Bonneville County have seen a high surge in cases while many people in the supposedly most-endangered groups have been vaccinated. I suspect that the most-endang…

So, the Boise State University bullies have been called out. Big City Coffee, a downtown Boise coffee shop, is taking legal action against Boise State University after the closure of its location on BSU’s campus last year, violating their contract with the coffee shop. The bullies forced the…

If you have ever wondered how a democracy dies, just take a look at Georgia. The party in power passes a law that virtually guarantees that the party in power will stay in power — a law that shortens the amount of time voters have to cast a ballot, a law that requires identification that man…

Andi Elliott must have been a drum major at some point in her life because she loves beating a drum on many topics she is poorly prepared for. Recently she criticized the District 93 School Board because she disagrees with their protocol and decisions.

Dr. Krell gave us an inside look as to what is happening at the hospitals while we lead the nation in COVID-19 cases. I heard one nurse say she completely changes her clothes in the garage to protect her family. I’m sure nurses are not the type to yammer about their rights if a store require…

Regarding Mr. Ziel’s recent letter, some fact-checking is required about the Keystone pipeline. First, those several thousand jobs are at best only temporary seasonal construction jobs that would last for four to eight months. The State Department forecasted that no more than 50 jobs would b…
