    So, President Trump, you are looking for some really big $$$ (in the trillions) for the infrastructure, military and a wall. Here are some ideas.

    Land grabs come in many forms

    Letter to the Editor

    Americans are incredibly fortunate to have national forests, national parks, wildlife refuges and other lands that provide us with so much inspiration and fulfillment. I view public lands as a foundation of our democracy, and a place where all people are created equal.

    Proposed medical school to reduce the lack of physicians in Idaho

    Guest Opinion

    35 of Idaho’s 44 counties are defined as rural, that’s nearly 80-percent and of those 35, 16 counties are classified as frontier counties. A frontier county is remote with its residents far from grocery stores, schools and health care.

    Secure Rural School payments: Federal obligation must be met

    Guest Opinion

    The federal government’s irresponsible overspending that has resulted in a nearly $20 trillion national debt makes it increasingly difficult to ensure that the federal government meets its responsibilities. Comprehensive reforms that control federal spending and provide better certainty of the ability to meet these federal obligations are greatly needed.

    Salvage Idaho’s forest family

    Guest Opinion

    An unreliable and constricted supply of logs has been the largest factor forcing mill closures in Idaho towns like Kamiah, Orofino, Coeur d’Alene and Elk City. Over that quarter of a century, some 7,500 Idaho forest dependent families have lost the employment, homes and lifestyle they once lived and loved.

EMTs: support them, their efforts, join them

Editorial

Idaho County has a strong volunteerism history when it comes to our community EMTs (emergency medical technicians) who train on their own time and dime, and are on call to leave their work or families at a moment’s notice, in all kinds of weather, day or night, and at any location from highways to rugged back country.

Time to pay more attention to all these districts

Editorial

Voters can’t sluff off into apathy, thinking that politics is eased off for a year, until we get into mid-term elections. Just get a load of what is coming up this year: 47 elections.

Educating the Idaho talent we need

Guest Opinion

Idaho’s economy is on an incredible path in the right direction. Idaho leads the nation in job creation. Idaho is one of the top three states for income growth. Idaho remains the best place to start a small business. With all of that…there is still work to be done.

USFS letting burnt forest go to waste

Letter to the Editor

Nobody is working any harder to destroy our forest and deny access to said forest by the general public than the U.S.F.S. They are supposed to be managing the forests for the financial good and enjoyment of the general public, not the USFS and employees.
