Summer is here and like many Idahoans, my weekends are spent camping on Idaho’s vast public lands. The state is blessed with some of the world’s best outdoor adventures, whether it is riding dune buggies in the St. Anthony Sand Dunes or hiking to high mountain lakes to fish.

If all the Powers That Be approve the creation of a Greater Idaho, taking in the dissident rural counties of Oregon and northern California, there will need to be adjustments to the Idaho legislature. My count of the population of the rural Oregon counties is some 700,000 people.  If they we…

My job has me wearing dress shoes more often than boots these days, but that makes me no less appreciative of Senator Mike Crapo’s recent action on behalf of Idaho producers. As the son of a farming family, I want to thank Senator Crapo for choosing to cosponsor the Growing Climate Solutions…

I would like to believe that this is the last time I write about COVID-19 and facemasks, as the number of folks getting vaccinated has grown and those infected has dropped dramatically. I want to thank all the local health care personnel that worked tirelessly throughout the past year and a …
