  CWI land purchase troubling

Comedy, much like politics, is all about timing. Rush the punchline and you blow the joke — or at least stifle its impact. Effective humor needs time to breathe.

  Ethanol plant bad idea for Canyon Co.

Beware of Demeter Bioresources. The company is trying to sell us an ethanol plant disguised as a food processing plant. They promote a lot of blue sky for Canyon County with a story of increased tax revenues and jobs that belies truth and common sense.

  Too much BSU coverage in spring

I’m beginning to believe the Press-Tribune has a sweet deal with the Boise State football program. Perhaps they are paying the paper for every article appearing in print.

  Cheers and Jeers

Cheers: A great big cheer to all the Nampa first responders, church community and neighbors who responded to our lost 9-year-old grandson. It was a family’s worst nightmare, but luckily after traveling about 6 1/2 miles on his bicycle, he saw a house with lights on, knocked on the door and told them he was lost. A quick phone call home and then retrieval turned an evening of fear into one of rejoicing. Thanks to all!

  Why do Idaho Republicans fear Medicaid expansion?

Gov. Otter came through for Idaho on Wednesday by calling the Legislature back to Boise to pass legislation the federal government requires before we can use its system for collecting child support from parents out of state and out of country.

  Collective bargaining in Idaho gets more transparent

Here’s another extraordinary bill that passed this last legislative session that you haven’t heard about: House Bill 167 stops cities and labor unions from negotiating contracts in secret. The bill passed the House and Senate unanimously and was signed by Gov. Butch Otter.

John Coleman, the founder of The Weather Channel, and various other critics have called the theory that human use of carbon-based fossil fuels will lead to catastrophic global warming or climate change a “hoax.” It is, but it’s more than that, it’s criminal. So you're absolutely right the CO 2 global warming hoax is simply a multibillion-dollar effort to extract money from hard-working businessman, and sad part about it is its working. The sad thing about it is that the line is being promoted by a man whose IQ is only 94, yes it's the one and only Al Gore.

Nor will they get my vote. We know that the "assessed" value is not a realistic fair market value number but, for heavens sake, CWI Board, how can you spend tax payers money without something every reasonable person purchasing property would appraisal. And on top of that, the seller would have had to foot the bill for it. Bad play people........

In a poll released ( last month. the overwhelming majority of Americans (including Idaho) think global warming is real and something should be done about it. In another poll ( released this year, " found that 83 percent of Americans, including 61 percent of Republicans and 86 percent of independents, say that if nothing is done to reduce emissions, global warming will be a very or somewhat serious problem in the future". You have lost the war so you can keep your incoherent babbling to yourself.
