Thanks for supporting MVSD 244 levy

Letter to the Editor

Thank you to the school board members for listening to the concerned parents and patrons concerning the combined kindergarten and first grade classroom.

Showing their disdain for people of county

Letter to the Editor

Once again Idaho Rivers United and Friends of the Clearwater demonstrate their disdain for the people of Idaho County. While we struggle to create jobs, fund education, and meet our basic needs, they are filing a lawsuit to stop the Johnson Bar Salvage and Restoration Project.

Time to abolish the wolf control board

Letter to the Editor

The Idaho Department Fish & Game, in conjunction with Wildlife Services, despicably gunned down 20 wolves over the Clearwater National Forest in North Central Idaho last month. Helicopter gunning of wolves, or any other species, should not be a “tool in the toolbox” in 21st Century wildlife management. It’s barbaric, immoral, expensive and is not grounded in science.

How many must die before we finally take them at their word?

Way back in 1502, Niccolo Machiavellii (sp) stated that “There is no avoiding war,… it can only be postponed to the advantage of your enemy.” We do have some enemies who swear they intend to annihilate us!

Time for transparency, accountability

Letter to the Editor

Now it’s time for accountability and transparency. Superintendent Mr. Kent Stokes, it’s time to explain to taxpayers why this levy was necessary. You, yourself told me over the phone, “If the levy doesn’t pass we will be okay. We have plenty in reserve.” By reserve I assume you were referring to the $5 million that the board is sitting on.

Hat off to you all for effort put into cookoff

Letter to the Editor

Thank you to the 14 Grangeville merchants who participated in last weekend’s chili cookoff.

Trump: triumph over media, their message

Letter to the Editor

Through the shadow government and its interlocking political ties to donors, corporate and special interests in the political infrastructure of our given governmental hierarchy, we observe a pyramid as a construct which adheres to paradigms that exist as givens within the subconscious mind.

ITD handling slide shows incompetence

Letter to the Editor

At last Thursday’s meeting with ITD, neither David Kuisti (ITD engineer) nor their recently hired contractor (West Co.) could tell Elk City residents when even a single lane would be open for traffic on Highway 14. Everyone who has transited Highway 14 to Elk City over the last several years has known that this slide was going to occur – falling debris has been constant.

‘Heil, heil’ wreaks havoc on public lands

Letter to the Editor

America is facing a massacre of its public lands similar to what Germany’s leaders did to the Jewish people when they were given power by the people. When the German people saw atrocious things happening in their country, most just looked the other way and did nothing.

Trump: everything to do with furious dissent

Letter to the Editor

I am amused, though hardly surprised, that mainstream media shills are now accusing Donald Trump of being a fascist. The candidate aside, it is not hard to understand why Americans, in unprecedented numbers, are supporting Mr. Trump.

Childish, cheap shots addressed on March 21

Letter to the Editor

Since my first day on the school board, one thing has been very clear. There is no room for dissent, and absolutely no right to the First Amendment, of freedom of speech.

In your name we pledge to fight on...

Letter to the Editor

With deepest appreciation to the Bundy Family et al. Like so many valiant souls before you, your personal freedoms, your self-determination and that of your loves ones, have arbitrarily been taken from you.

Support Frei, county on solid waste efforts

Letter to the Editor

Thank you, Mark Frei, for tackling the difficult task of addressing changes mandated in solid waste collection for rural Idaho County. The facts that open dumpsters are not allowed throughout Idaho (and the nation) and the need to be proactive in addressing this issue resulted in the directive to consolidate sites included in the last two solid waste contracts.

God’s word should be used in every class

Letter to the Editor

Thank you, Senator Nuxoll, for introducing SB-1342! Using the Bible in schools is a very great victory.

Donating blood gave an unintended benefit

Letter to the Editor

I have been giving blood to the Red Cross since 1981. In my first years of blood donations, I knew that I was giving blood to save the lives of sick and injured people. It never crossed my mind that I might be receiving a benefit in return.
