Topics For Discussion, Little Real News

BOISE RIVER continues to flood, there are so many reporters wading in the water we can’t justify any more “dope reporter awards.” Seems like Mother Nature is the only culprit to blame for the extra snow and runoff, but it does seem like there are a lot of structures close to the river. DOWNTOWN is […]

Historic Union Pacific steam engine 844 will visit Boise Saturday night and Sunday. The GUARDIAN joined some old-time steam engine buffs to make these photos near Glens Ferry Saturday.

New Try At Community Journalism

We started the BOISE GUARDIAN as a news blog back in May of 2005. One of the motivating factors was the decline of newspapers nationwide and the drastic increase in government flaks, spokespersons, spin doctors, or other titled “information specialists.” We wanted to give readers a forum to air their opinions and provide “the other […]

U.S. Election A Joke To Others

Sorry for lack of content. Been busy traveling to Vietnam, chasing lost bag and making photos for the day job. Meeting folks from Australia, Holland, Germany and Canada who ALL think our election and candidates are a big joke.No one has mentioned Russia’s Yeltsin, but that is how they seem to feel. Tourism dominates all […]

Drinkin’, Fightin’, Smokin’ and Uber Problems

We got a “please play nice” press release from Boise coppers and based on their own numbers it seems that smoking, drinking and Uber cars are keeping them in business in the “vibrant downtown” of what we seek to be the “most livable city in America.” We have previously noted that about 25% of ALL […]
