Idaho subsidized by destitute institution

Letter to the Editor

The governor’s office and leadership are wearing no clothes but it appears most are afraid to tell them due to relationships of “political entrepreneur” nature.

Grangeville spirit a blessing for family

Letter to the Editor

Thank you Grangeville! On behalf of my family I would just like to give many shout-outs to our hometown after our recent visit during 2016 Border Days.

Join battle to end govt. lawlessness

Letter to the Editor

Suction dredge mining in Idaho is outside the scope of the Clean Water Act. Please consider the “Silberman Standard” as found in the United States Court of Appeals, District of Columbia Circuit case numbered, Nos. 97-5099, 97-5112.

James gave this farm kid a chance

Letter to the Editor

It was good to see the 2016 grand marshal in the parade this year. I worked for the James family when I was a kid. I didn’t get to talk to Wayne this year, but thought I would share this story about the good old days.

Walking Tacos had a successful Fourth

Letter to the Editor

The Walking Tacos food booth had another successful Fourth of July. Over 500 people enjoyed the tacos, coffee, cookies and water.

Top Down Approach Double Talk

Letter to the Editor

Senator Risch: This letter involves a serious comment by you in a recent Lewiston Tribune newspaper article, “Sen. Jim Risch said he’s disgusted by the top-down approach federal agencies used….” In other words, federal agencies do not work first with the people and organizations in states to develop their programs.

Restrictions at park against intended use

Letter to the Editor

For several years a group of Kooskia, Kamiah and surrounding area residents have been playing volleyball at the Kooskia City Park. We gather twice a week for family style grass volleyball and community fellowship. In 2015 when we arrived at the park we found signs posted saying “no playing volleyball on the grass.” We moved to the Kamiah Park until we could talk to the city council.

Kooskia Park is everyone’s property

Letter to the Editor

To whom do the city parks belong? The community? They are maintained using state, federal and local taxes. “Land set aside for the use of the public” (Merriam-Webster). For 10 years I, along with family and friends, use the Kooskia Park for just that reason twice a week in the summer. We play volleyball along with some other activities and enjoy the safe swimming there. We frequent the business for snacks, lunch/dinner, gas and coffee. Last fall we were informed volleyball nets were no longer welcome at Kooskia Park....

Graffiti on grade needs to be removed

Letter to the Editor

These graffiti need to be removed. It is proven that once it starts it will continue to spread because the “doers” of this graffiti think they can get away with more and more. It is time to put a stop to this and clean up what has already been done.

Company in town why Border Days a success

Letter to the Editor

Without the many volunteers and the countless hours Border Days won’t exist. The excuse that one has company in town is folly, because most all of us have company in town, and that is another reason Border Days is successful. Some of the volunteers during Border Days are visitors to town, so step up to the plate and volunteer to join a group or organization.

Thanks for rally help

Letter of Thanks

Animal Ark would like to publicly express our thanks and appreciation to Southfork River Ranch and to all the folks from around the Northwest who participated in their annual motorcycle Poker Run Rally.

Crop signs are very much appreciated

Letter to the Editor

Seeing the crop identification signs along Highway 95 from Winchester to Grangeville is such a pleasure.

USFS letting road deteriorate to Whitewater Ranch

Letter to the Editor

Apparently the good-old USFS is letting the road to Whitewater Ranch on the Salmon River knowingly deteriorate to the point that it is almost, or it is by now, impossible to use even in a four-wheel pickup.

Either smear them or find way to fire them

Letter to the Editor

Wow, “The action was not taken for political reasons.” “It’s not political.” “It’s definitely not political.” Sheriff Giddings, is that how it is all handled in California?

Giddings: Trust him a little less than Hillary

Letter to the Editor

Two deputies in Asotin County knew about the abuse of a minor and did not take proper action. Neither of them are public officers any longer. Good. Luckily the sheriff there did not follow our Sheriff Doug Giddings example.
