Idaho’s small businesses need our help On Friday, support our local gems

Idaho’s local businesses are the backbone of our state’s economy – they’re also the lifeblood of our communities. They provide us with goods and services, local jobs, health care coverage, growth opportunities, community identity and immeasurable community value.

TESTS: Scores not good enough

Aug. 20 article “Cd’A scores second in Idaho skills test” makes me wonder what standards the Idaho Reading Indicator use. Sounds like the bar set is far too low considering that in Coeur d’Alene only 61.6% of students ranked proficient in English, only 50.3% scored proficient in Math and only 58.9% scored proficient in Science. You’d think these scores would be embarrassing. What is this saying for our Gem State of Idaho? Not so Gem, right? I wonder if the influx of people moving here are aware of these facts.

'Go on' and sign those Idaho ballot initiatives

There is some irony in the precarious position the Gem State has found itself. Despite setting a goal in 2010 for 60 percent of Idaho’s young people under age 34 to attend postsecondary education, the Idaho Legislature then decided the way to encourage young people to attend college is to significantly inflate the tuition costs for those would-be students in the subsequent years that followed.

HARRIS: A job very well done

Cliff’s announcement in Monday’s Press was a real yea/boo for us. We grew up, worked and also retired here 16 years ago at the young age of 60. Without fail we would consult Cliff’s Weather Gems before planning our “Golden Years” activities and adventures in this marvelous area. It paid off as we have enjoyed beautiful weather (and missed adverse weather) on countless wonderful trips.

CAROUSEL: Return this gem to Cd'A

On Christmas Eve I read about the 90-year-old Carousel that used to live at Playland Pier near Independence Point during the ‘40s and ‘50s. Being nearly 75 years old myself - I was in wonderment of these, when I was little. Children now, do not have the opportunity to experience the magical things we had back then.
