Vista Neighbors And Noisy Jet Fighters

Sentiments over the Air Guard mission at Gowen field are heating up and it looks like officialdom has pretty much made up its mind. Here is a letter from the Vista Neighborhood Pres. He asked the GUARDIAN to share it.

The Boise airport has been engaged in a Airport Noise Study since early summer. Few people know about it.

I know the discussion has been had before, however, things have changed. This is a NOW issue, not tomorrow or next year or the year after. Whatever your experience, thoughts are on the subject, please take the time to send in your comments. I have included the links for the formal presentation by the airport, their comment page(which can be emailed) and a short “poll” we created via survey monkey(not an official survey).

  3. Where is the local Media?

    I Believe In the profession of journalism.

    I believe that the public journal is a public trust; that all connected with it are, to the full measure of responsibility, trustees for the public; that all acceptance of lesser service than the public service is a betrayal of this trust.

    I believe that clear thinking, clear statement, accuracy and fairness are fundamental to good journalism.

    I believe that suppression of the news, for any consideration other than the welfare of society, is indefensible.

    I believe that no one should write as a journalist what he would not say as a gentleman; that bribery by one’s own pocket book is as much to be avoided as bribery by the pocketbook of another; that individual responsibility may not be escaped by pleading another’s instructions or another’s dividends.

    I believe that advertising, news and editorial columns should alike serve the best interests of readers; that a single standard of helpful truth and cleanness should prevail for all; that supreme test of good journalism is the measure of its public service.

    I believe that the journalism which succeeds the best-and best deserves success-fears God and honors man; is stoutly independent; unmoved by pride of opinion or greed of power; constructive, tolerant but never careless, self-controlled, patient, always respectful of its readers but always unafraid, is quickly indignant at injustice; is unswayed by the appeal of the privilege or the clamor of the mob; seeks to give every man a chance, and as far as law, an honest wage and recognition of human brotherhood can make it so, an equal chance; is profoundly patriotic while sincerely promoting international good will and cementing world-comradeship, is a journalism of humanity, of and for today’s world.

  4. Zip.. you probably ought to attribute the journalism quote to the actual author.
