    There is only one issue at hand here. The issue is which pay schedule to use. Two years ago in negotiations, the district and union agreed to adopt the state pay schedule and use it until the state develops a different formula. This ensures that the formula by which the state funds the distr…

      I was living in Woodland, Idaho, during this time; I had been trimming trees on a lovely property of a couple who hired my husband and me to get the property looking nice and ready to sell. On that day I was enjoying the beauty of the rolling hills with my dog, Nicky Boy. My dog and I were w…

        With spring approaching, many of us look forward to enjoying traditional summertime recreation. In fact, a lot of us equate the availability of good camping, fishing and hunting with our quality of life. But these recreations are rapidly fading with our population increase. Why then does the…

          This political standoff demonstrates that Congress, our states have lost all civility and is incapable of managing the country going forward. The U.S.A. will be prone to separatist movements as well as the target for political disintegration.

            As my wife and I subscribe to the Free Press -- my wife is a native of Idaho County – I always read the court records. As I am a retired police officer, I can’t seem to get it out of my system.

              I read the article [Jan. 16 issue] “Healthcare pricing: ‘Complicated and complex’ says Syringa CEO King,” about new hospital price transparency requirements, with great interest. As a board member of Consumers for Quality Care (CQC), a coalition dedicated to patients and their right to affor…

                I am curious as to why The People's March seems to acknowledge The Women's March on Martin Luther King, Jr., weekend with no mention of the March for Life. It happened on the same weekend. It would seem to me that the organizers, after considering "ethics," income inequality and basic human …

                  “A long, long time ago . . . February made me shiver / With every paper I'd deliver: / Bad news on the doorstep; / I couldn’t take one more step. / I can’t remember if I cried / When I read about his widowed bride; / But something touched me deep inside / The day the music died.”

                    I have never seen so much hate in the world as we have now, except in the time of Hitler. Our president did not leave a comfortable life and business to run our country because he hated America. He came because he could see a country that was being led down the path of destruction and social…

                      Isn’t it great to have a President of the United States who is committed to keeping his campaign promises to the citizens who elected him; a President with backbone, a President who is absolutely dedicated to the security of the citizens of the United States. God bless America and God bless …

                        Now that the dispute over speed limit signs on Highway 95-Grangeville have ended, how about a sign, “Drive at your own risk,” being installed leaving Grangeville on Highway 13 to Harpster? Between the frost heaves, truck ruts and potholes, you have to drive all over the road to avoid destroy…

                          We need to pull together and step up to this madhouse with its dispensations and become the stewards of our social order. Support our community at the local level, and not at the state/federal /international one.

                            Your remarks about our President are not becoming of someone with your intelligence; a civil conversation on policy and the rule of law is what is needed, not personal attacks.

                              I hope that more people will realize that guns are simply tools. And whether it be a hammer or a drill or a gun, it has a place and if not used properly, can cause someone to hurt.

                                Dave Rauzi’s recent editorial [Dec. 19 issue] was headlined Schools are Front Lines in Teaching Kids Gun Safety.... I want to quarrel with Mr. Rauzi’s contention that schools should be the gun instructors.

                                  The big winners are you, our school and our community, as we came together and worked hard to reach our goal and give back to those in need in our community. It makes us very proud to see everyone working together to make this happen.

                                    Christians think that they have to have their manger scenes out in public, their lighted cross up on the hill, their Christmas church program, their Christmas music, and a host of other things to mark off the Christmas season.

                                      Our wilderness areas in Idaho: Why do we have them? Our government has got this land closed up so it’s not accessible to be able to enter or take care of the dying timber, that is happening in these areas.

                                        We need a strong voice that will represent data-driven solutions in our government. Kristen Collum has shown dedication to this idea and will fight for real solutions to make Idaho stronger for Idahoans.

                                          Instead of stadiums named for insurance companies, tax breaks for the top one percent or fancy medical offices, our citizens should get what is needed – affordable healthcare, a living wage, less “I got mine and the heck with the rest of you.”

                                            Please support all rural fire districts. Vote yes to save life and property, family and friends, and all creatures that make our countryside the treasure that we all love. And let us happily pay our taxes that provide the protection we so urgently need.
