Today we introduce a new opinion columnist. Long-time writer and political observer Randy Stapilus writes a weekly column about Idaho politics, and we begin publishing that column in today’s paper.
It has been more than 35 years since Randy’s byline graced the pages of the Caldwell News-Tribune and Idaho Free Press. Today, Randy is an editor, publisher and writer based in Carlton, Ore. He has been publishing periodicals on government and public affairs for more than 20 years, including the Idaho Weekly Briefing (and counterparts for Washington and Oregon). He also has published a number of books on the Northwest and other topics. His blog is at www.ridenbaugh.com.
