I took a back way into Grangeville last week and I saw this sign on the hill. It was for the Grangeville Youth Baseball, but I almost missed that as the sign is pretty peeled up and faded.
Letter: Linda Orville, Kooskia
Syringa Hospital’s helipad idea is a long time coming. Out in the back country when you’re running stock or a four-wheeler, the working person here in Idaho County has a little more ease knowing there’s going to be quick access to a hospital, much the same as someone in town would have.
Letter: David Bearman, Kooskia
Jefferson said that his religious freedom contribution to the Virginia Declaration of Rights, crafted by George Mason prior to June 12, 1776, a month before the Declaration of Independence was signed, was “…..meant to comprehend, within the mantle of its protection, the Jew and the Gentile, the Christian and the Mohammedan, the Hindu and infidel of every denomination.”

FYI: Are you aware of this as I am now?
Letter: Jim Holsinger Grangeville
In the last several weeks many have written in to the opinion page asserting that the United States is a “Christian” nation.
Letter: Jon Menough, Ph.D. P.E. Elk City
Last week, Mr. Philip Jahn took issue with our commissioners for “losing touch” for becoming more interested in historic preservation within the proposed “Crooked River Rehabilitation Project” than in the jobs and economic impact it would have on the county. My response to Mr. Jahn: “Hogwash!”

Why do we need a $545,000 levy?
Letter: Allen and Kim Chenoweth
Since SGH is flush with funds, how about a very public trial run on the proposed helipad site? EMT Spencer can wheel an actor-patient, in the cold, across the rough Main Street surface, street roped off, to the helipad site.
Letter: Philip Jahn
I am concerned that the Idaho County Commission may be losing touch.
Letter: Michelle S. Perdue
It has come to my attention that environmentalists are petitioning to introduce African lions into the Frank Church/River of No Return Wilderness in response to global warming.
Letter: Scott Perrin Cottonwood
Raised in Wyoming and Idaho I was exposed to tough, salty people. Most were homesteaders who had to look to themselves to survive. No time for silly arguments of color, political correctness.
Letter: Thomas Reilly Grangeville
I read with interest Wayne Wimer’s March 25 letter to the Free Press, in which he asserted that the United States Supreme Court has never ruled, specifically, that “our entire legal system” is based on the Ten Commandments.
Letter: Ken Carpenter Grangeville
Over the years, in reading the letters to the editor, I have observed some things. The less a person knows about a subject the more vitriolic they are inclined to be. When someone exposes their unwholesome lifestyle the viler they tend to become. The Christian seems to be the only one who is not allowed to live according to the teachings of their Holy Book.
Letter: Jim Chmelik Idaho County Comissioner
In a recent letter to the editor a challenge was made that we were not a nation founded under Judaeo / Christian principles and a lesson in civics 101 was offered. Unfortunately it was incomplete.
Letter: W. Alan Hall
America home of the brave and land of the free, I want to believe that it still exists; regarding Sen. Sheryl Nuxoll’s being criticized for so-called not honoring a Hindu priest.
