I am writing this letter on behalf of my entire family to thank the Pocatello Police Department and all the agencies involved in the investigation and arrest of the 2 individuals who murdered our mother Arlyne Koehler this past March.

What do we do when our nation’s leaders words are racist? The US government Equal Opportunity Commission’s Web site says: “Ethnic slurs and other verbal or physical conduct because of nationality are illegal. Examples of potentially unlawful conduct include insults, taunting, or ethnic epith…

Can you please set up a fund to help people who have/want to leave your country?

Next time you're in Old Town heading north on Main, turn left on Lander and get out of the car. From there you can see where Lander goes between the auditorium of Poky High and the class room building and the streetlights beyond that go down to the river. It's a nice view and a nicer walk. T…

Dan Cravens' recent column in the Idaho State Journal insists that Colin Kaepernick “could learn” from America’s Founding Fathers, and compares Kaepernick’s protest of the treatment of people of color in America to such “patriots” as Thomas Nelson Jr.

It appears that the Bannock County Commissioners and the County Assessor have all fallen ill with the work ethic conundrum of “just doing their jobs.”

Congratulations and a big thank you to Old Town Pocatello and Bannock County for the wonderful parade, activities, and fireworks show on the 4th of July. Stephanie Palagi of Old Town Pocatello and Tiffany Olsen and Guy Patterson from Bannock County did an amazing job.

You state in your recent article for the Journal that “Bannock County currently has the highest levy rate in Idaho.” In your research can you state the reasons why?

“Where oh Where” can our Bannock County commissioners be? A critical public meeting was held on July 9 at the ISU Student Union building. The open house and public meeting was to address the contamination leeching from the Fort Hall Mine Landfill.

Over a month ago, one of the three feral cats that hang around our house went missing after we heard a vicious midnight fight in the woods. We grieved the loss because “Booties,” with his clean white paws, was the friendliest of the three.

My name is Gary Hagler. I am a captain for the Chubbuck Fire Department and have been for the past 27 years as a volunteer pay per-call employee. Many of my neighbors and friends have asked me how I feel about the new proposed North Bannock County Fire District.

Pocatello City Councilman Jim Johnston has posed the argument that the 13 percent raise proposed for Mayor Brian Blad (on top of a 6 percent raise just 18 months ago) is justified because the mayor manages a large and diverse group of employees. Hardly an adequate basis for granting a raise.

A kick in the face to Pocatello, police officers and firefighters' families by Pocatello city officials. DISGUSTING. Men and women such as Mr. Akilah Lacey, a police officer, a coach to our children, and others who put their lives on the line willingly every day for the citizens of Pocatello.

Finally light erodes darkness! It seems we have within Bannock County its own backcountry version of a deep-state mentality. After receiving property tax notices 18 days late without any prior notice to the public, because of a new computer system, citizens found themselves suddenly enslaved…

Saw a news article about Hewlett-Packard doing a study on Idaho's "educational" system. Here are a few statements the study made, accompanied by my humble opinion.
