On January 15, a bill was introduced that would legalize all drug possession in Idaho. A person could legally possess up to trafficking amounts of any drug such as heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine and fentanyl. In fact, it is safe to say that if this bill passed as written, it would be the w…

“Of all the commandments, which is the most important?” a teacher of law asked. “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your s…

Attorneys who will defend President Donald John Trump in the Senate trial that begins Tuesday contend that the two charges in the Articles of Impeachment against their client "fail to allege any crime or violation of law whatsoever" and argue that, because of this, the Senate should call no …

Over the past few months I have read at least two letters written by the Boundary County Human Rights Task Force. Prior to these letters I was unaware of the existence of such a task force in our county.

Every day in the United States of America, criminal charges are laid against people who are accused of crimes. Once those charges are filed, a process begins by which guilt or innocence are determined.

I wish both the outgoing and incoming mayors the best. I know them both and believe they are men of integrity with the best of intentions. At no fault of either candidate, the citizens of Bonners Ferry are the losers of that election.

We humans are funny creatures, getting wrought up at the most mundane and trivial differences between us such as politics, race, color, nationality, religion and on and on, when in reality our differences only seem large in our minds; we, and all living things, are remarkably the same, and s…

In Part 1 - Handing Over Idaho on a Silver Platter, I shared how Idaho is not that different from other liberal states when it comes to allowing bad policies to slip into our state laws, codes, and regulations that covertly undermine our state sovereignty.

As we gather with family and friends this holiday season, there are likely plenty of discussions about the state of our nation. Hopefully, these conversations are more lighthearted than Washington, D.C.-style partisan bickering.

Bonners Ferry has a new mayor. Is he the legitimately elected mayor? We do not know and it seems will not ever know. When four people voted in the city election who were not city residents and when the mayoral election was won by two votes, the election was not an accurate and fair election.

Federal overspending cedes strength, forgoes the ability to put full resources behind new ideas and essentially resigns our nation to a system of cobbling by, moving from one federal funding deadline to another without a focus on the bigger picture.

We assert that our most sacred civic expression is the casting of an individual vote. Any president or leader who forces political support and fails to honor and protect the free and legitimate elections on which our republic rests has lost the moral right to govern.

This week, Speaker Nancy Pelosi is proceeding with impeachment charges against President Trump and the U.S. House of Representatives will take a vote. As a member of Congress and an Idaho Representative, I understand the gravity of the situation.

More than five million Americans are currently living with Alzheimer’s disease and, absent a medical breakthrough, that number could rise to nearly 14 million by 2050, according to the Alzheimer’s Association. This disease is tragic and life-altering—wherever, whenever and whomever it strikes.

Idahoans are, and have always been, a different type of people. Rugged, self-sufficient and independent, we love our beautiful state and believe it is the best place in the country to live. We believe in law and order but dislike government being used to regulate us like a nanny state. As a …

Boundary Ambulance Service has been blessed with donations from both Dr. Stu Willis, our medical director, and his son Dr. Hank Willis and family. We are humbled by the generosity of the Willis family and greatly appreciate being able to keep snow off of the ambulances as well as getting our ambulances fixed and back on the road!

Boundary Ambulance Service. The amount of time between injury and response is consistently cited as a reason to maintain the current level of service. Sadly though, there are not enough “billable hours” to pay for that service. Jeff Lindsey states he has taken a pay cut. He fails to mention he took a position as Bonner County EMS Director.

Please consider a vote for Dick Staples to replace Mr. Sims as Mayor of Bonners Ferry, Idaho. The Bonners Ferry part is important. Dick lives and makes his living in Bonners Ferry. This can not be said for the current Mayor and his immediate staff.
