IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KIFI) - Here's what you should know to start your Wednesday. 1. According to Bonneville County Sheriff's Sgt.

Plant climate zones updated
Question: I understand that a new hardiness zone map has been released. Has our hardiness zone been changed?. Answer: The new 2023 Hardiness Zone Map is based upon average weather for the 30-year period of 1991 to 2020. So, in my opinion, it is still a little out of date because the weather has warmed more quickly in the last few years. It shows that Idaho Falls and most of Bonneville County are in hardiness zone 5b, which is a half zone warmer than the previous map and a full zone warmer than the map before that.

GOP lawmakers get no love back home
One thing I learned from my five years at the Post Register in the 1980s was the love that people in Idaho Falls had for Republicans. Almost as much as the 4th of July. Republicans in Eastern Idaho revolved around a common theme: Elect more Republicans. Publicly going after incumbents, and especially those in high offices, was akin to booing Santa Claus, or cooking the Easter bunny for Thanksgiving dinner.
