I would like to correct the statement made in the news article concerning the fatality accident on Highway 12 Aug. 2nd; Neither occupant of the explorer were wearing seat belts.

I replied then to correct it, but it was still repeated by Lewiston TV and the newspapers.August 15, 2018 6 a.m. read more..
The attitude that “they are yours during school hours, you deal with them, I have to work” cannot be the status quo. We all need to work together for our children.August 15, 2018 6 a.m. read more..
The loud, demanding voices of a few vocal union members do not reflect the true nature of the majority of MVSD teachers. This angry mob mentality is held by only those who are intent on dictating their personal opinions and problems to the school district without following proper protocol and procedures.August 15, 2018 6 a.m. read more..
When it comes to firefighting, that service is critical to protect lives and property. It needs to be done. It’s great when you can provide that service privately, but if you can’t, the option isn’t to ignore this public need.

Phil Haunschild of the Idaho Freedom Foundation says the government shouldn’t have to pay newspapers to advertise public notices to “We the people.” Why did Haunschild send his guest opinion (July 25) to newspapers when, as he states, only thirty-three million people receive newspapers?

A local spokesman for the Forest Service did make a statement, which I totally agree with 100 percent. He stated that, “In 2015, 56 percent of the Forest Service budget was spent on wildfires. In 1995 it was only 16 percent, and in 2025 it is projected to be 67 percent.” Yes, our forests are being managed strictly for money for the U.S.F.S. agency.August 8, 2018 6 a.m. read more..

Believe me, no one is going to Disney Land (sic) on food stamps, TANF, Social Security, and/or Social Security Disability. (The rules governing these programs are extremely prohibitive). Then, there are the consequences for violation of the rules: You must pay back funds and/or jail time is imposed – both of these have longstanding consequences when looking for a job.August 1, 2018 6 a.m. read more..
