Turn young worker frustrations to everybody's advantage

It’s an old song. Generations old and young lament one another’s failings; the lyrics may change, but the tune remains the same. It’s as if we’re not only speaking different languages, but living in an entirely different world.

Dump the nitric oxide in a four-minute workout

I am an expert in avoiding exercise. I definitely fall into the kind of thinking that afflicts many Americans. “I’m too busy.” “Working out is boring.” “Working out is too hard.” “It’s cold and I don’t want to move my body today.”

RARE DISEASE: Today's the day

We all hear about cancer, multiple sclerosis, autism, and the list goes on and on. We rarely hear about people who live with rare diseases. Some are so rare, they do not have a name to identify their final diagnoses. That is why the rare disease saying is, “When you hear hoof beats, think of horses not zebras.” It is hard to believe that rare diseases affect 30 million Americans. That staggering number means that one out of 10 individuals is affected.

GUNS: Critics are misfiring

Got up Sunday morning to another beautiful Idaho morning. After feeding my outside animals and getting the paper, I got a cup of coffee and proceeded to read the Coeur d’Alene Press. Upon turning to the opinion section, I was stunned enough to get up and make sure my plates said Idaho, not that sanctuary lib state down south. Anti-gun this, anti-gun that. Also, how I should heed the advice from still wet behind the ears high school kids.

VOUCHERS: Wrong for Idaho

Please contact your representatives and urge them to keep public schools funded at the optimum levels possible. Allowing private schools to take funds away from public schools will only hurt our state, especially the disadvantaged students who’s parents can’t afford the extra money likely required to attend religious and other private schools. The selectivity afforded private schools will also further stratify and separate our children’s educational opportunities. We currently have a difficult time attracting and keeping good teachers. To further water down our limited resources will only make a difficult situation worse. Please keep public funding where it will do the most good, with public schools.

'I want them to feel my pain'

School shootings are terrible, senseless tragedies. Each of these now all-too-frequent events is different but seems to share a common, very modern, factor — the social isolation of the perpetrator. They are often the outliers, the loners who have always been an element of our population, and now they retreat further into the shadows until even the “system” ignores them.

GUNS: Safety must come first

When I was young, the adults in my community agreed that protecting the lives of our children and families was more important than pretty much anything. Adults sacrificed their wants to protect the well-being of our families. Adults didn’t look to blame other folks. They took responsibility, “did what had to be done” and fixed the problem. Us kids, we were the foolish ones who made excuses and avoided our responsibilities.

EDUCATION: Cheers to Dave

An unbelievable number of thoughts went through my mind when I read Dave Johnson’s “My Turn” article in the Feb. 22 Press. First of all I commend him for the article and for his teaching methods. As a Social Studies teacher, I taught three different history courses and a Problems of Democracy course to 10th- through 12th-graders. As a retired federal employee, I have great respect for government and its employees because of the dedication I observed during my working life. As a veteran of eight years in the U.S. Navy, a federal employee, I observed that same dedication to the defense of our nation.

KIDS: Don't listen to them

I could not agree more with Esequiel Vasquez on his statement! Possibly Sholeh would like to do a truthful column on the rape of a young girl in Idaho Falls several years ago that went without proper news representation?

Our nation has heartbreakingly endured another school shooting. The debate rages trying to deal with these horrific attacks.

NRA: Not Real Americans

If they were true Americans, they would not stonewall attempts by Real Americans to bring gun control to our country and stop the shootings in our schools and our communities. The NRA has twisted the Second Amendment to satisfy their own political and financial interests with total disregard for those who lost their lives. They all have blood on their hands.

GUNS: Consistency left out

According to the left, we should raise the age of eligibility to buy an AR-15 to 21. This is apparently a great idea; after all, 21 is the age required to buy a handgun from an FFL dealer. This would apparently keep us safe from minds that aren’t fully formed and are subject to impulsive decisions. However, we have to balance this line of thought with not only the Constitution of the United States, but also the left’s other stances on policy issues and to whom we should be listening.

GUNS: Listen to mom

Nicole Hockley, mother of Dillon Hockley, murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary, and co-founder of the Newtown Sandy Hook Promise, spoke to Donald Trump at the White House Wednesday saying, “This is not difficult. These deaths are preventable.” Mrs. Hockley shouldn’t have to appeal to elected officials to do something about these deaths. It’s more than disturbingly obtuse.

GUNS: Don't arm teachers

GUNS: NRA mission vs. myth

Bill Rutherford, I feel your grief and frustration in finding an answer to the shooting in Florida. I, like you, have similar backgrounds when it comes to guns. I grew up shooting and hunting. Guns were always there. However, I would never have thought of using one on another person unless it was for self-protection. But that was another time. One thing I do know that there was no fault of the gun. The gun is an inanimate object and its mechanism is designed to operate in a specific manner when the human being holding it activates it. Nothing more, nothing less.

February 25, 2018 midnight

GUNS: Wrong question asked

As students walk out of school to demonstrate and protest the most recent school shooting, they all seem to be asking “How?” How did the shooter get the rifle? How did the shooter get into the school? How can we allow people to buy such weapons?

When is enough, enough? How many more kids have to die at school? How many more teachers and coaches have to die protecting our children? When is it time to talk about it? Politicians on TV say we can’t “politicize” these incidents. Really? If I had lost my child in a school shooting that could have been prevented, I’d damned straight want to “politicize” it!

Investment in early childhood education reduces crime big time

Having served 8 years as Idaho Attorney General (1983-1990) and 12 years as a member of the Idaho Supreme Court (2005-2016), I have gained a good perspective on crime prevention. Idaho has a fairly effective system for detecting crime and prosecuting criminals. However, if crime can be prevented in the first place, both the cost to taxpayers and the toll on society are much, much lower. Crime prevention pays big time.

Instead of promoting having to be taught how to read a news story, how about some classes for the people writing them? Maybe we can start a curriculum at NIC as well as other learning institutions in which students are taught to gather information, independently verify facts, then present them in a coherent manner so as to leave the reader reliably well informed? We could call it “journalism.” That would work too, wouldn’t it? If we could somehow implement this “media literacy” could be called “reading.” It’s just crazy enough to work and at least worth a try.

We were founded 231 years ago by a group of mostly godly men who drafted a constitution that would stand the trials and tribulations of time — until now! There IS a shadow government inside and outside our present administration, planning to overthrow our duly-elected president — obstructing and resisting every action that he takes — rules of law and decency are gone — destroying him by hook or crook. And it’s OK with many of our fellow liberal Americans. Will they succeed? Who knows.

Attention legislators: Don't fail Idaho now

You may have seen the ad campaign “Don’t Fail Idaho,” suggesting we need to up our education game here in Idaho, currently ranked 48th in the nation. The slogan rings hollow given the Idaho House Education Committee’s 12-4 vote last week to dismantle science standards relating to global climate change, among other things, despite the fact that during six public hearings in 2017, 995 of 1,000 people who left feedback supported the proposed standards, according to the State Department of Education. The New York Times reported on Feb. 6 that “…only in Idaho has the state legislature stripped all mentions of human-caused climate change from statewide science guidelines...” Only in Idaho.

Scam targets sex offenders

The Idaho Central Sex Offender Registry, administered by the Idaho State Police, has been made aware of several attempted scams targeting registered sex offenders in at least one Idaho county and six Florida counties. One scam involves a caller posing as a law enforcement officer who tells the sex offender that they have missing or out-of-date registration information. The caller then threatens that, in order to avoid arrest for failure to register, the registrant must bring a gift/money card to a specified location (other than the registration office). The caller may provide a callback number with a voice mail message that sounds as if it belongs to the local law enforcement agency’s registration office. In another report, the caller says they are with the sheriff’s office and they have a warrant for being non-compliant. The scammer goes on to say that the only way to take care of it without being arrested is go to the store and get a money card and give them the card number over the phone.

Officially, we’re more than halfway through the winter season, and many are hearing that the “winter is about over.” We’re coming into the middle of February, and Cliff and I keep saying that it’s not the right time to take off those snow tires. We’ve had several periods of snowless weather over the last few months, but climatology tells us that warm periods in the winter months are sometimes followed by cold and snowy ones. That happened in February of 2015, when record warmth was followed by 6 inches of snow.

It is hard to believe how much Vietnam has changed in the last 50 years. Tay Ninh Province, where I served, is hardly recognizable.

Fifty years ago, the northern part of the province was uninhabited jungle and dangerous territory. That area is now developed with residences, shops, restaurants, and farms, as well as a national park. Tay Ninh City, a former backwater, has turned into a real city.

RSVP: Keep 'phenomenal' going

Retired and Senior Volunteer Program is a “phenomenal program,” states Chris Martin, VP of Finance and Business Affairs at North Idaho College, but “stopped making fiscal sense.” Really? A program that has been serving North Idaho communities since 1971 and recognized for its economic value of volunteer hours: $1,875,263.20. For every $1 in funding, the community receives $27.89 in services (stats as of 2016); all while being funded at 2011 levels following a 20 percent cut. This is no longer a viable service for our community? As of April 1, 2016, there were 559 volunteers.

I also wonder if this will pertain to the officials making these decisions as well? I presume that many of the other school administrators are on their cellphones at inappropriate times as well; in meetings, at lunches, pretty much during their entire work day.

However, in our part of the world, Cliff and I have been getting a lot of questions asking, “where’s the snow?”

LOGGING: Comment on proposal

St. Joe District Ranger Mat Davis proposes to log 3 square miles in the Theriault, Kelly, Williams and Sewash Creek drainages a few miles south of Avery. The Idaho Panhandle Forest plan has identified much of these drainages as elk security areas where logging is not permitted. Ranger Davis will violate this forest plan standard. He plans to amend the forest plan to allow this elk habitat damage. He is taking comments on the proposed Brebner Flat timber sale until March 5.

MEDICAID: Expansion imperative

According to a Coeur d’Alene Press article, 25-year-old lung transplant recipient Alex Heisel and her family are trying to raise $500,000 in medical costs not covered by her insurance. The entire medical procedure cost $2 million. If Idaho had accepted Medicaid expansion, Alex may have been covered. Now taxpayers have to pay twice: First, for an expansion Idaho refuses, and second, for the financial loss of the hospital. Any help Alex did receive was from the ACA. She was on her parents’ policy until she was 26 and her lifetime cap wasn’t limited to a million dollars. She can also acquire insurance in the future because preexisting conditions currently don’t apply.

Unfortunately, for more than 70,000 Idaho residents who have no health coverage at all, many will go untreated or, worse, wait until needing hospitalization, thus leaving an even bigger bill for someone else to pay. Many without health coverage will also die, or put their families at risk of financial ruin.
