I support Elizabeth Cogliati and Lara Hill, trustees of the Idaho Falls School District 91 School Board. A small, vocal group of parents have led the campaign to recall them after they voted with trustee Hillary Radcliffe to move three of the district’s high schools to a hybrid model on Sept…

First off, a GOP functionary complaining about “unscientific” results is pretty ironic. Less funny are the tired tropes about evil Californians subverting Idaho Falls policymaking and the notion that diversity means giving out “handouts” or is in conflict with hiring “based solely on skills,…

It’s time for our educational format to conform to the 21st century. A high school diploma is of little value anymore. I find it very sad when someone can’t even spell the position they are applying for. I made a purchase of $13.63 and gave the cashier $20.13, but they entered $20.00 and had…

The recent debacle during the cold snap in Texas reminded me just how reliable our infrastructure is here in Idaho Falls. Unlike Texas, we always have clean water when we open the tap, and the electricity and natural gas are always there when we need them, even during the coldest Idaho winte…

Our governor and president are currently acting like dictators, using inflated COVID-19 statistics as their reason. The following rights and freedoms that are guaranteed by both the U.S. and Idaho constitutions have been severely restricted or abolished under unconstitutional COVID-19 mandat…

You know that Putin is quite proud of Trump and his groupies of the Putin gang — the new GOP. Putin has to be extremely happy about the legacy Trump leaves behind. When Republican senators claimed they would listen to the evidence before they would vote to acquit, how could anyone be surpris…

The initiative restriction bill will make it virtually impossible for grassroots campaigns to qualify initiatives for the ballot. As it stands, the only way to get an initiative approved for voting is if more than 36,000 of Idaho’s citizens have signed a petition indicating that we want to v…

Congressman Simpson has served up a comprehensive regional enhancement plan that will provide much-needed infrastructure upgrades while adding the benefits of healthy, sustainable salmon runs back into our lives. The plan is additive: Restoration of the lower Snake River and its unmatched sa…

The Republicans have a big problem with Trump supporters. Those that voted to convict Trump are now getting death threats from Trump supporters. If this doesn’t show how unhinged Trump supporters, are I don’t know what does.

Your article reminded me of a colonial woodcutter who tells the coal miner there isn’t enough coal to heat our homes. Or the coal magnate that tells the oil wildcatter there isn’t enough oil to heat our homes. Or the oil tycoon who tells the electric utility operator there isn’t enough elect…

Idaho Falls is having a hearing on city well No. 3 in support of the location of the new water tower. It will be located on South Capital Park located on Capital Avenue, south of the art gallery. The playground north of the parking lot will be spared, but little else of the park will remain.

By Presidents Day, more than 1,000 employees of Bonneville School District will have been vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus. Nearly 70% of our classroom teachers will have immunity, a historic milestone on our journey to keep our schools open in the midst of a local, national and global …

Thanks to Gov. Little who acted quickly to get us those funds, Idaho has received $900 million in new federal aid to help Idahoans impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes $164 million for rent assistance for workers who lost jobs, $851,000 for the Commission on Aging for Meals on Wh…

I am a Republican, but I agree totally with the editorial by David Roth. We do not need to pay, from public monies, to ”defend” our Legislature. They need to just practice in the chambers the correct way to make changes, through discussion and voting — not take their ideas to the courts, whi…

Since the lockdown started back in March, the nation’s 660 billionaires have seen a collective growth in wealth of 38.6% or $1.1 trillion. So prolific that 46 former millionaires became billionaires. Bezos alone grew his wealth by 60% and Zuckerberg by almost 70%.

Once again, our Idaho representatives have shown that they aren’t fit for office. Mike Simpson and Russ Fulcher voted to protect Marjorie Taylor Greene this week who, among numerous shocking and racist positions, claims that 9/11 where nearly 3,000 innocent people were killed was a hoax, cla…

Our representatives continue to make a laughing stock out of Idaho. They think that we are not capable of thinking for ourselves. These people, so out of touch with reality, would rather serve their own interests than those of the people. They want to keep this state stuck in decades past be…

I can see how some elected leaders can believe the Jan. 6 insurgency was just a bunch of good old boys being a little rowdy, and Trump shouldn’t be held accountable for their brainless actions. Wanting to hang Mike Pence was just a joke. And I can see how after 68 court cases claiming a frau…

We are at that time of year when a famous marmot supposedly predicts the upcoming spring season. It has no scientific basis, yet we stand attentive to learn if the rodent sees its own shadow. This scenario is conducted every year, and we are bemused by the silliness of it all. The tradition …

It may be past time for some to wake up. This finger-pointing and blame placing is dividing this nation. Perhaps this blaming being done — at least toward our government — is the fault of the voters who keep electing and reelecting members of these two parties that seem only capable of suppo…

I want to know where Rep. Heather Scott gets her crystal ball. Or does she just possess a God-like power to declare the pandemic over? Is this just in Idaho or nationwide? Please tell this to the 90,000 folks expected to die in February, as it will be over for those who pass. Won’t it, Heath…

Let me get this straight. Gayann DeMordaunt, Steve Harris and the other vacant-eyed Idaho Freedom Foundation members of the Legislature — the ones who, for at least the past 10 years, have spent every waking hour decrying government instead of doing the hard work of legislating — are now pus…

During the Idaho House debate on ending COVID-19 restrictions, I was greatly relieved to find out from Rep. Heather Scott that the COVID-19 pandemic is over, that we are “nowhere close to a pandemic” and “ that the “sick emergency is over.” It was heartening to hear Rep. Barbara Ehardt tell …

Many Republicans continue to insist that the presidential election was rigged and manipulated to give Joe Biden the presidency. Some of our local Trumpsters have bought into this nonsense. They know the election was somehow tilted to "steal" the election from Trump. Never mind that there is …

Recently we sent an email to Sen. Crapo regarding the Capitol riot. His reply was unsatisfactory, so we sent another email commenting on his desire to investigate “voter irregularities,” saying it would only further Trump’s baseless lies. In 60-plus court cases, no evidence was presented. Th…
