Stitch in Time
Congressman Raul Labrador: This week, I participated in a Judiciary
Committee hearing about the President’s failure
to fulfill his most basic Constitution duty – to
“faithfully execute the law.”
Senator Mike Crapo:
I recently shared in the Senate some of the
infuriating experiences of Idahoans who are
among the more than three million Americans now
losing health care coverage and facing much
higher premiums due to the Affordable Care Act.
The promises of the flawed health care law are
nothing like the realities.
Congressman Raul Labrador:
President Obama famously promised that, under
the Affordable Care Act, “If you like your
health care plan, you will be able to keep your
health care plan, period.” He made that promise
at least 29 times.
Mike Weland: It’s taken nearly three years, but newsbf.com is
finally beginning to close in on what I dreamed
it should be; a small town “paper” in a new and
exciting media that combines the best of all
that’s come before.
Congressman Raul Labrador: Today, on Veterans Day, we pay tribute to those
brave men and women who have served our nation
in uniform. We also honor the enduring service
of our soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines, and
Mike Weland: I’ve been thinking a good bit lately about
security and safety in Boundary County’s public
schools, particularly since the “distract and
attack” lesson raised such a stir at the middle
school last week.
Robert Bissett: Regarding "'Distract and attack' has parents up in
arms; God forbid such a
thing ever happens in our schools. As someone
who graduated from the Air Force Academy, took
escape and evasion training, served nine years
in the military, two of those in Viet Nam, it is
my opinion that the school trustees, the
superintendent and the principle are living in
Congressman Raul Labrador: There’s so much partisanship in Washington, D.C.
these days, it’s always good news when both
parties can come together for the common good.
Thomas Bushnell: I'm sure you are getting a proverbial earful on
I agree that our schools should be prepared for
an active shooter situation and that sending
unarmed, untrained teenagers against an active
shooter is not generally a good idea. What could
possibly go wrong?
Congressman Raul Labrador: It’s just one thing after another. The Obamacare
rollout keeps getting worse and worse. The
website is so dysfunctional ninety-nine percent
of applications aren’t being processed. When
President Obama finally acknowledged the problem
– three weeks after it started - he encouraged
people to use the phone.
disgusted citizen: It amazes me
that this county closed both sane routes to Deep
Creek! Whose brilliant idea was that? Seriously,
at the same time?
Straub: Here's to you and your WONDERFUL important
efforts to get books into the lives of more
babies and their families.
Barbara Russell: In 2003, I went to Dr. McCreight with what I
thought was a spider bite. He said he’d worry it
was Lyme Disease but we don’t have it here. I
told him I just returned from Pennsylvania, to
which he said I had Lyme Disease.
Mike Weland: Since offering this website for sale after my
wife and I decided to move to Alaska to be able
to spend the years we have left enjoying our
grandchildren, I've come to realize I may have
asked too much, and told too little.
Thomas: You are to be congratulated
for raising awareness of Lyme disease with your
disease is local," but it contains several
Lee Haarstick: What does “Affordable Health Care” really mean
to WE the SHEEPLE? Are you signed up yet? The
fun is just beginning!
Derrick Alt: I don't know where to begin ... before I start
off I will just say that I am addressing the
school as a whole, not anyone in particular.
Anyhow, I thought that the whole bomb threat
situation last year would be over by now, but I
guess not. The students that think this is funny
are no better than a preschool child.
Mike Weland: On October 8, I wrote an editorial that began, "There is an obvious theory rampant in Boundary
County that an elite cabal controls Bonners
Ferry Badger sports, and the school board of
trustees is unaware or in cahoots."
