Animal Control: Tonight, which is Monday night; I was walking my dogs in front of the Red Feather Café or Restaurant. My dogs are little; they’re West Highland Terrier and a Lasa Apso, weighing no more than 20 lbs. Two Pit Bulls were leashed to a tree in front of the Red Feather and were on at least two-foot length leashes. As I walked by on the sidewalk, admittedly the owner of the Pit Bulls came out to stop them and try to control them to not grab my dogs and chew them up. They kept lunging and it was a very fearful, unsettling experience to say the least. If I were an older lady, I would never come downtown again; it was very upsetting; I was fearful, and I am not happy about that kind of experience occurring again. I don’t think two full-grown Pit Bulls should be chained to a tree outside a restaurant near or on the sidewalk in downtown Boise. Thank you.

Bus Service: I’m calling regarding the bus service in Ada County and Boise. I think that they need to send out a questionnaire to every person who lives in Ada County and Boise to find out who would ride the bus. The questionnaire wouldn’t have to be that hard and cost that much. If the Mayor’s office has a committee, I would like to be on that committee. I believe that thousands of people would ride the bus if they were sent a questionnaire and you would know what areas and how to set up a route. It’s just common sense to send a questionnaire out to the people of Boise and Ada County regarding bus service and who would use it and who would not.

Amtrak: I was told by the train depot to contact you to say that I support the idea, and even seeing the action, of having the train come back through Boise again. I had the opportunity to ride on it from Portland all the way to Denver and it was really an enjoyable experience. I think it would be a great idea to diversify the transportation around here and to have it back on track again. You can call me at the above number and if I happen to not be available, please leave a message on the answering machine.
Action Taken: left msj

BPR: I’m calling because on my way to vote today, I passed by the Natatorium and I noticed in the lower pool where the slide dumps out, it’s about half filled with water. I’m thinking that if that freezes and expands, we’re going to have an expensive fix-it job. Please look into that. Thank you.

Campaign: I’m calling to congratulate you on your victory. Wonderful job, keep up the good work.

Tom Thomas
Towing: I have called the Mayor’s office, I have called Mollie Holt, and I’ve called Channel 6 regarding the policy on parking in the parks and tailgating for Boise State football games. I would like the Mayor to give me a call back; there is some definite discrimination going on regarding this policy. I would like very much to talk to Mayor Bieter. I appreciate it. Thank you.
Action Taken: spoke to him

BSU: I’m calling because I’m trying to figure out why we can’t have a 21 gun salute on Veterans Day @ BSU. I’ve contacted the Statesman. I’ve contacted everyone except now everyone is telling me the Boise Police have requested we don’t do this. My letter will be at the editor’s office, it’s already there, and will be printed. My son is in Afghanistan and he found out about it before I did because of the world of internet and he is appalled that we back BSU but yet the police don’t back them, so why?? And you’ll read my letter and I’m thinking because you guys shoot more people then they do I don’t know, so I’m just leaving my message and I’ll talk to ya later.

Boise 83704Code Enforcement: It won’t do you any good to forward my comment to the appropriate agency because they don’t ever seem to do anything. I put in a complaint to code enforcement in July online about a home on Pomona who it appears are operating a business out of their home. He is building and sawing all day long and it’s noisy. He owned a fish store but was evicted and it appears he is running this store out of his home. There is traffic coming and going and several trucks parked there. I finally got a call in September saying the online complaint was lost somewhere out there in the Netherlands. Then Carol Montgomery did tell me she would go by. She called me last week on Wed. I returned her call her on Thursday and I’m still waiting for a return call. It appears they take their time in doing anything and they never reply and they don’t follow-up. I think this is a shoddy way to run code enforcement and I would like someone to follow up. I don’t know what the problem is except maybe they need to hire some new people.

  1. Owner’s of Pit bulls are Idiots. They should be required to carry insurances and prosecuted to the max when there’s a problem.

  2. You gotta be kidding me. Judy is afraid of a little old pit bull? She defined the word for years on the commish board. The dogs can consider themselves lucky she didn’t bite THEM. Just ask the AG.

  3. Mr Logic, perhaps you’d like to make your snide little remark to the 70 year old man in Fruitland who was attacked by pit bulls earlier this year or was it last year, you know what I’m talking about.

    I love dogs and dogs were never much of a problem until recently, where it seems the dog population has exploded just like the human population. Too many people who haven’t a clue are owning dogs now.

    Not only are there agressive dogs out there, there are dog droppings to be found in nearly every park, all along the greenbelt and even on school playgrounds. Remember the Summerwind Elementary story, what happened with that?

    Wait, there’s more, every other block seems to have a dog yapping it’s head off. I’ve seen quite a few people go off to work and leave their dog alone locked in the house all day. Shouldn’t that be against the law?

  4. Wait a minute.

    Pitbulls on a two-foot leash, lashed securely to a tree, yet Judy freakin’ Peavy Derr (pitbull in her own right) was fearful that her lap-warmers were about to become high protein Zamzows chow.

    I’m not buying it.

    No bashing of the police department? What is happening? Nothing from Glen Miles? I call fowl, someone is holding back the mail….Pierce Murphy, could you please look into this situation?

  6. Brian, Brian, Brian. Didn’t your father teach never ” pet the hair of a burning dog”?
    Just let “sleeping dogs lay”!
    Sorry, it WAS a softball!

  7. I think that any dog who could be a harm to other dogs or people should not be tied up on a sidewalk or other public place where another dog/person can walk by. My dog was attacked by a pitbull, fortunately the dog did not actually bite my dog, but it was definitely a harrowing experience.
