A new voice on the news/blogging scene is BoiseDev (elopement) operated by KTVB-7 refugee Don Day who ran the website for the TV station.
His family has deep roots in Boise–family owns Vista Village and an uncle was once mayor.
He recently posted a “Scoop” about Mayor Dave Bieter’s apparent behind-the-scenes efforts to build a downtown soccer and/or baseball park. Like most projects, details get released only after it’s a “done deal,” minimizing public scrutiny or opposition.
After the just-announced bond proposal of $180 million for a CWI junior college expansion, local taxpayers shouldn’t even feel the pain if asked to pay for a new stadium to benefit an out of town sports promoter.
Take a look at Day’s post, it is insightful.
