We’re a great county, good people

Letter to the Editor

Thanksgiving is a time for giving thanks to all that we hold dear.

Support exchange; get local work force back into woods to harvest

Letter to the Editor

I fully support the Lochsa land exchange. Environmentalists have created a bug-a-boo in order to scare the local populace away from this proposal.

Morality of nation dropped so low Hillary has chance to be president

Letter to the Editor

President Bush had golfed 24 times but out of respect for our troops, he stopped golfing. As of Aug. 23, 2015, Obama had golfed 247 rounds, more than 10 times more than Bush.

Opposed to state taking over and selling off our public lands

Letter to the Editor

I’m writing this in response to the dialogue we’ve seen in the statehouse and in the newspapers in Idaho over the last few years that’s been happening amongst some of our more extremist politicians.

No good alternative to being locked out of our forest

Letter to the Editor

The Lochsa Land Exchange has reared its ugly head again, and nothing in the past three years has changed to make it a better plan for the citizens of Idaho County, the users and owners of our public lands.

Sen. Risch hearing on Nov. 24 is a setup

Please take videos of your national forest visits for your great grandchildren to view. They will be interested to see what an undeveloped, wild, naturally functioning forest ecosystem was like before the national forests were privatized.

‘One big fraud’

The Lochsa Land Exchange zombie once again rises like a cadaver from the grave. This time, the deal appears to be a legislative end-run around the good management of the Forest Service and the people of Idaho County by incorporating all the worst options that shut it down last time.

Generosity shown locally toward veterans

I would like to thank the businesses for their generosity towards veterans on Veterans Day. While there is turmoil and chaos throughout our country as well as the world in general, often events such as Veterans Day are overlooked or not given the appropriate amount of attention.

VA Health Care System is a ‘big mess’

Letter to the Editor

Dave Myers served two tours of duty on helicopters in wartime Vietnam. A year ago, he became very ill following a surgery done at the VA Hospital in Spokane which turned into peritonitis with diabetic complications.

Human beings are unique, not equal

Letter to the Editor

Equality has driven the human species to madness which is why we have revolutions.

Foolishly thought the county would assess property accurately

Letter to the Editor

I was informed that several homes in our area were found in error (to the benefit of the county).

Over 90 percent oppose this fiasco

Letter to the Editor

Attention: Outdoor people, hunters, fisherman, children and grandchildren—your lands are being taken away!

His ‘jail’ may be the bars of a narrow mind

Letter to the Editor

I guess one person’s “excellent historical analogy” is another person’s “huh?” when responding to Jim Chmelik’s letter, [Oct. 14 Issue] From an Environmental Prison.

Focus on schools, not fools and pipe dreams

Letter to the Editor

I have followed the push that is coming from certain politicians in Idaho to transfer our public lands over to the state to be sold off. I feel compelled to speak out.

Hoping Halloween event will continue

Letter to the Editor

Thank you to all those involved in the magical Halloween fund-raiser for Kids Klub.
