The Idaho Legislature adjourned for the final time this year after a three-day blitz that accomplished nothing. In the end, the last session symbolized the entire legislative year—a lot of promises on critical issues and nothing substantial in return. The state spent over 100,000 to have a Joint Memorial to signal Idaho’s disappointment with the federal government’s attempt to mandate vaccinations. (That sentence was from a release from the Idaho House Republicans. Did it make sense to you?)

Awkward Hospitality Ends Idaho Road Rage Fight

In a strange brawl on the streets of the Treasure Valley, some sort of road rage incident has the internet laughing out loud at how awkward things were brought to a close.

It isn't often that we see much serious road rage here in the Treasure Valley. Perhaps an occasional "flying of the bird" or an explicative yelled--for the most part, the lack of real traffic in Boise and our overall "slower" pace of life keeps everyone calm. This brawl seems to be an exception to the rule, at one point, one of the fighting men says to "go back to Washington". It's the END of the fight that has everyone online LAUGHING...maybe it's just some good old fashioned Idaho Hospitality?

“Idahoans can rest assured that House Republican Caucus members will continue fighting to strengthen protections for Idahoans that do not want to be forcibly vaccinated,” said House Majority Caucus Chair Megan Blanksma. “People deserve the right to make medical decisions on their own, without the intervention of their government or their employer. January 10th is getting closer each day and the members of the House Republican Caucus stand ready to again put forward legislation to preserve the medical privacy rights of Idahoans on day one of the session.”

Lieutenant Governor Janice McGeachin told us this afternoon that she was disappointed in the session.  She reached out to the governor and the leaders of both houses seeking to solve the vaccination or termination issue once and for all.  The lieutenant governor told us there was never a meeting scheduled between the four leaders despite her efforts.

"The Legislature spent over $100,000 to censure a female veteran," the lieutenant governor told us.  She was referring to the censure vote of Representative Pricilla Giddings who is running for lieutenant governor.  Giddings is a decorated war veteran and an officer in the Idaho Air National Guard.

The next session will begin in early January.  Considering the results of this year's session, does anyone have any faith in the process.  Or do you agree with Congressman Labrador's statement: "Some legislators believe they work for the governor and not for the people."

Idaho National Guard's A-10 Warthogs Are Beasts

If you have ever taken off from the Boise Airport or landed on that runway, too, odds are that you have seen a long row of airplanes on the runway that simply don't look like that others. These planes look MEAN and they only have one seat--so it isn't going to be what transports you to your work meetings or exotic vacation. We're talking about the A-10 Warthogs and here in the Treasure Valley we know they can do some damage.

These 13 Treasure Valley Roads Need a Speed Change

Spend any time driving around the Treasure Valley and odds are you will spot a little bit of road rage. While it's nothing wildly aggressive most times, it seems that with the growth of our city has come a lot of conflicting opinions on HOW to drive on our streets. Roads that were never meant to handle the volume of traffic that they now do have different speed limits-- some that are a little fast, some that are a little slow. We took to our means, Facebook, to ask YOU where the worst roads are at and which speed limits need adjusted. Here is what we found.

Idahoans Are Moving Away to These 12 States

These days, it seems that everyone in Idaho is complaining about the amount of people moving to our state. The influx of residents is certainly real, but how often do we look at the folks moving OUT of Idaho? It's going on and these 12 states, by far, are "stealing" the most Idahoans away from us!
