NEIGHBOR: Growth spurt needed

| May 3, 2020 1:00 AM

Dear Edward Murphy,

“Good fences make good neighbors.” Robert Frost would further say if he were here that your quarrel is not with the people of North Idaho but with its government body and choices they felt necessary.

Your personal embargo is laughable as you need to know one thing: 26.3% of Idaho’s out of state newcomers are from California, 8.3% are from Utah and 5.9% are from Oregon.

We are not happy with the situation nor are we concerned with your complaints. Our state’s decision to look out for our constituents’ health in a time like this was important. I find your response childish.
