Idaho Sends Help To Secure the Border

Governor Brad Little continues his efforts to aid states that are in need of border protection. The governor via press released announced that the Gem State will send help to border states to stop the continued migration of illegal immigration into America. No word at this time what type of help Idaho will send, will it be troops or law enforcement? The Biden Administration has refused to call the situation at the border a crisis.

Brad Little Bribes State Employees to Take the Vaccine

Governor Brad Little may not have created a vax lottery, but he's offering half a day off for state workers who get the poke. In other words, the governor has now authorized four hours of vacation time for any state employee who receives the Covid vaccine. What this move tells me at first glance is that the administration is not happy with the number of folks who've said no to getting the vaccine.

John Cena Says ‘The Suicide Squad’ Isn’t a Sequel or A Reboot

James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad crash lands in theaters and on HBO Max this coming August. A follow-up to David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, the movie is the tenth installment in the DC Extended Universe. While Suicide Squad was rated PG-13, The Suicide Squad will up the ante with an R-rating. The superhero flick has been previously described as a standalone sequel to Suicide Squad, also serving as a soft reboot of the critically panned 2016 film. However, John Cena — who plays Peacemaker in the movie — would describe it as neither.

Boise Embraces Carbon Neutral Plan for Your Future

Proving that imitation is the superb form of flattery, the mayor of Boise follows the lead of other liberal elites by declaring Boise will be 'carbon neutral' by the year 2050. You recall fellow West Coast Liberal California Governor Gavin Newsome made a similar declaration last September. Newsome wants to get rid of all gasoline-powered vehicles to lower carbon emissions.

Boise Based Baby Food Maker Is Being Sued – Here’s Why

As a young parent I remember looking at my baby and wanting to give her nothing but the best. The best parenting, the best education, the best food. My daughter was the healthiest baby and ate only organic foods for the first 3 years of her life. I would look at every label and attempt to minimize the sugar intake even when I was only feeding her organic foods. As busy parents sometimes we don't have the time to do all the research so we trust labels, this unfortunately is a reminder to not be so trusting.

The Idaho State Flag Is Absolutely Hideous, Right? Be Honest!

Please don't take this the wrong way. I love Idaho, but there's one thing that's been bothering me. It's not the crazy amount of population growth. It's not the increasing housing costs either. It's the Idaho State flag. Let's be honest; it's ugly. No thought or time was put into our state flag. It looks like someone got a blue flag on sale at the Dollar Tree and pasted the state seal in the middle.

Bay Area Residents Target Boise For Better Life Balance

This shouldn't come as a surprise to any of us... Idaho was the fastest growing state in the nation between 2019-2020. Places like Kuna, Nampa, Eagle and Meridian were all in the top 8 fastest growing cities in America according to the census. At some point we all start to wonder how long the growth is going to continue. It's gotten so bad that there is currently a lumber shortage in Idaho. Is that a sign that things will start to slow down? or does that just cause the demand to increase based on the projected lower supply?

Is Global Warming Making Allergy Season Worse in Boise?

Tis the season for "seasonal allergies" and it seems that everywhere I go, I hear more and more people saying that this has been the worst year yet. To be honest, I have to agree--I've never had seasonal allergies get me as bad as they have over the past couple of months. One week, I completely lost my voice. This week, I can hardly stop sneezing or clearing my throat--both things that you don't want to be doing during a global pandemic if you want ANYONE to come around you. Regardless, the consensus seems uniform: this spring has been an INTENSE ride for those who suffer from allergies.

New Emergency Housing Vouchers in Idaho to Help Housing Crisis

The word 'unprecedented' may have been over used when talking about the pandemic last year but it is the best word I can use to currently describe the Idaho, Treasure Valley and Boise housing market. Unprecedented. Finally some relief to those who are being priced out of their homes and or rentals and are unable to afford adequate shelter.

Idaho’s Trump Primary: Who Will Donald Trump Endorse in Idaho?

Will, former President Donald Trump, play a part in the upcoming Idaho Gubernatorial Primary? We've lobbied the former president when he was president to visit our great state.

Boise Police Warn of I-84 Speed Patrols

It was a Monday morning and I was running LATE to work. A luxury living as close to work as I do is that I can get from my front door to my office in about 3-4 minutes if there are no red lights. A quick drive up Parkcenter Boulevard and I'm there. As you may be able to understand--you don't always drive "slow" when you're running late and that certainly was the case for me. In the 2 mile span from home to the office, I got caught speeding--guilty as charged I was sent off with a ticket and an awful start to my day. I'll never speed on that road again.
