OPINION: The tangled web we weave

In his June 5 Op-Ed, former Attorney General and State Supreme Court Justice Jim Jones opines on the alleged failure of Attorney General Raul Labrador in adhering to the Idaho Rules of Professional Conduct for attorneys related to client representation. Mr. Jones misreads Idaho Code in determining who and what are the clients of the Attorney General and the advice to come from that office, and thus Mr. Jones lends more confusion to the “tangled mess of litigation” regarding the disposition of the former ITD headquarters.

MY TURN: 'Firmly against barbarism'

Over the last four months the State of Israel has once again been fighting a war for its survival. No civilized person was untouched by the barbaric attacks by Hamas on Oct. 7, 2023. With that in mind, as a precinct committeemen in the Kootenai County Republican Central Committee, I wrote the resolution below for submission to the committee this month. For a committee that exhibits true Republican values and principles, public policy should never be far away and should always be loudly proclaimed. To that end, I drafted the attached resolution and also submitted it to this newspaper for the purpose of encouraging other organizations in Kootenai County to join the KCRCC in standing firm in our commitment and support of Israel. Any other organization may use its wording, but I hope all of Kootenai County joins me in lighting a candle in the anti-Israel terrorist darkness that is now swirling fiendishly in the Middle East.
