On behalf of the board of directors of the Grangeville Country Club, I wish to express sincere thanks for the wonderful cooperation and ad donation by the ICFP to help advertise our June 10 club benefit. Specific mention goes to Sarah, Lisa and Judy.

Loss of opera house will change many lives

Letter to the Editor

Unless something happens very soon, a disaster is close to happening that will change not only our lives, but the lives of our children, grandchildren and many others who have come to cherish a unique piece of history. I speak of The Old Opera House in Kooskia.

Stand to lose much if unable to raise funds

The incumbent board of trustee members have earned the opportunity to build on their contributions and to continue to support the employees, providers and management staff who provide exceptional care to the people of the hospital district.

No-show candidate not a great start

Voice Your Opinion: write a letter

Letters to the Editor policy

An important function of a community newspaper is to provide residents with a forum to express a variety of opinions and viewpoints. With this in mind, the Idaho County Free Press attempts to publish as many letters to the editor as possible.

Keep the opera house the Opera House

Cross a powerful reminder of a Savior

Letter to the Editor

The cross, which shines on the mountain over Grangeville on Easter week, and from Thanksgiving through New Year’s Day, has been, for me, a source of pleasure, joy and comfort for many years.

Enviros contradict their own existence

Letter to the Editor

How many readers of this paper read Brett Haverstick’s editorial last week? He represents the “Friends of the Clearwater” enviro group. Did any of you believe what he wrote? I worked the timber harvest for 23 years and saw first-hand the benefits of logging. I have revisited many of the timber sales I worked on, and guess what? Biodiversity is thriving in those old clearcuts.

Radical environmental vision threat to liberty

Letter to the Editor

I read with interest David Rauzi’s op-ed, and Brett Haverstick’s accompanying commentary, in the April 12 edition of the Free Press. I agree with Rauzi that our county has grown far too accustomed to the “fix” of federal SRS dollars.

USFS designed to take care of just USFS

Letter to the Editor

In the April 12 issue of the Idaho County Free Press was an article entitled, SRS dollars not in sight. Secure Rural Schools was set up to replace lost revenue from timber sales on federal land to local county. The first thing people need to realize is the U.S.F.S. is designed to take care of the U.S.F.S. people and no one else.

Good ol’ boy politics in Idaho?

Letter to the Editor

The guest editorial by Representative Priscilla Giddings in the Clearwater Progress (Despotism in Idaho?) on March 16 was remarkable in more ways than one. First of all, why is it that we hear about these events only from a newcomer to the state legislature?

‘Preempted’ from your constitutional rights

Letter to the Editor

You, your city and your county are “preempted” from your constitutional rights and due process of law. This is truly alarming.
