For clarification, in the June 27 issue, a story regarding a felony vehicular manslaughter charge against Cord E. Wilson, should have stated Idaho State Police handled the investigation. The Idaho County Sheriff’s Office initially responded to the incident and assisted on scene.

Research recently revealed Idahoans will experience the most sleepless night of the year on Monday, July 16. So, make sure to have a fan nearby or the aircon on, and try to avoid eating or scrolling through your phone before bed!

The site Sleepopolis has analyzed the last 30 years of weather data to identify (statistically) when each state will experience the most uncomfortable conditions to get a good night’s sleep.

Sleepopolis identified the warmest night of the year (July 26 at 63 degrees Fahrenheit); the date with the highest probability of high humidity (July 31, at 43 percent); and the longest day of the year (June 21 with 926 minutes of sunlight), and then averaged these three dates to reveal July 16th as the worst night’s sleep of the year.
