If you don't want to be called a liar...don't lie!

Let’s keep the mail a public service for reasonable prices and universal service to all Americans, no matter where they live or work, using no tax dollars, while employing over 100,000 Military Veterans.

I cannot overstate the discontent and frustration I feel toward city leaders and although others like myself have expressed it repeatedly, the message seemingly falls on deaf ears. One would have thought the recent election results may have jarred them to their senses…apparently not. Our cit…

It can't get much louder than this. The American people should pay very close attention. Almost unanimously, everyone under oath in the impeachment proceedings, including those who worked for or with the President, has confirmed the duplicity of the actions related to Ukraine, while all thos…

I am writing to communicate my support of the logo/rebranding of our city. I think that several people in our community have been shared a false narrative. It seems that perspective is in short demand these days. With a city proposed budget of $128 million, the rebranding campaign of $90,000…

I want to give some special significance to the wonderful holiday of Thanksgiving which seems to get more overlooked as the years go by. Halloween, although very grandiose, has become quite the event and just as soon as it is over, thoughts of the Christmas season are not too far behind. How…

Larry Burden has a lot to learn about reality. Absolutes are his mantra and his desire to divide everyone according to his ‘us and them’ world view is pathetic. Projecting one’s own philosophy to attack an entire segment of humanity is typical of the small mindless of this new style of conse…

"Keep it in the ground," that is the shout of the environmentalists. This would mean the end of the use of fossil fuels for automobile gasoline, truck diesel, train diesel and aircraft kerosene. Are we willing to do without these modes of transportation? Fossil fuels helped make America the …

On October 16, the ISU Center for New Directions hosted the third annual Super STEM Girl Conference attended by 270 eighth grade girls from middle schools in Pocatello, Fort Hall, Blackfoot, American Falls, Aberdeen, and Marsh Valley. The girls spent the day at ISU completing hands-on activi…

I have never been so upset over the recent article about the threats that Shannon Chavez and her daughter Jade Turner have been subject to in Montpelier. I think first and foremost that Chief Roper is taking these threats too lightly. Has he even bothered to keep up on current events that ar…

Adree Edmo was convicted of sexually abusing a 15-year-old boy...an unconscionable crime against a child!! Yet the attorney in this case states, " You cannot continue to litigate cases for years and years and years while there is a real human being who is suffering. … We have spent an entire…

When you call 911 you expect something to happen. That is what it is there for. We pay for it through our phone bills as Bannock County 911. We expect it to work.

Most of us are taught, as children, that truth is the best policy and lies are usually punished. Politicians, other elected officials and the public in general should also be reminded of this, as it seems that suddenly people seem to think it has been deemed allowable to spew untruths as if …

Mr. Maughan expresses concern that the plethora of communication satellites currently being launched into earth orbits may inhibit the ability of astronomers in their use of optical telescopes in the search for "dark matter".
