Just returned from a week of warm weather in Hawaii and came away with a thought provoking bumper sticker observation.
RESPECT THE CULTURE was actually emblazoned on the tailgate of a small truck. It got us to thinking.
How many of the thousands of newcomers to Boise and Idaho in general come here to join in the lifestyle, rather than change it? Do folks come here to take advantage of cheap labor, cheap electricity, business “incentives,” or do they want to become Idahoans?
We would welcome your thoughts. When farms start growing houses, schools are overstuffed, the roads are insufficient for the traffic volume, and there aren’t enough jail cells, the culture changes.
