Fast And Low Gowen Thunder

We haven’t heard anything official yet, but the dire predictions of massive crowds and potential traffic jams could easily have been similar to the eclipse hoopla…or just good planning. Even so, the Canadian Snowbirds and the USAF Thunderbirds roared around Boise Saturday drawing white hearts in the blue sky as they performed aerobatic feats over […]

NFL Rules Demand Honoring Anthem (Maybe)

Football is a game of rules. For instance if a ball carrier’s knee touches the ground, play stops at that point. Well…the GUARDIAN’s chief legal counsel examined the NFL Football League rules and came up with a rule on pages A62-63 of the official NFL rule book: “the National Anthem must be played prior to […]

Free Life Vests At Cleaned Up Esther Pond

Boise’s Official F-35 Rhetoric Toned Down

Far from pulling the plug on F-35 support, we detected a “decreased volume” in the official City of Boise rhetoric following a visit by Mayor Dave Bieter and two city councilors to Hill Air Force Base in Utah this week.

Good Noisy, Bad Noisy, Boise

Gotta hand it to the Boise City Council. They are consistent when it comes decisions about economic benefits. Noisy jets at Gowen mean $155 million good. Noisy cars and cycles mean loss of diners downtown. Numerous readers called our attention to the new ordinance featured on KTVB.COM. All the messages pointed out the hypocrisy of […]

Time For Lifeguards At Esther Simplot Park

The Tragic death of the 15-year-old refugee this week highlights the need for lifeguards at a public swimming hole. Perhaps his death will send the signal to immediately get lifeguards at the Esther Simplot Park and Quinn’s Pond. Even the local swimming pools have lifeguards. Local promoters and politicos have long touted the benefits and […]

Pup Poop Pollutes Park Pond

DNA results of water sample testing have revealed dog poop is the primary cause of dangerous e-coli levels at the Esther Simplot pond in the new park of the same name. Goose poop was also identified as a contributing factor. As a result, dogs will be banned from the park. Geese tend to avoid canines […]
