Looking Back     Health Jewels    Stitch in Time
Congressman Raul Labrador: Nearly every day, the Obama administration announces a new policy or regulation that undermines our Constitutional rights and stifles our economy. The EPA, in particular, has put out some egregious regulations that have a direct and negative impact on the people of Idaho.
Dean Satchwell: Thank you for your article, "Satchwell honored for service to the city," but I would like to clarify the treatment I am undergoing for Multiple Myeloma and share information that may be of help to others in the community.
Rosanne Smith: Wow! The proposed Fab Lab/library/college/extension office will be the Taj Majal of Boundary County!
Congressman Raul Labrador: Last week, President Obama announced that 7.1 million Americans had enrolled in the Obamacare exchanges by the March 31st deadline.  This was portrayed as a major victory for the President but, not for the first time, he is missing the point about his signature health care law. 
Senator Shawn Keough: This is the last update from the legislative session which has now come to a close. Thank you for reading and for staying in touch! This newsletter will continue periodically as the work shifts from the legislative session to constituent focused work and as we begin the campaign season.
Congressman Raul Labrador: This week, the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments in a landmark case that will help decide the future of religious freedom in America. The justices are weighing the constitutionality of one of the most controversial aspects of Obamacare - the requirement that employers must provide birth control and abortifacients to their employees, even if doing so violates their deeply-held religious beliefs.
Ken Ewing: In May we can vote on an $8 million bond for a three story building plus an additional levy of $100,000 for operating expenses. A library is a fine complement to a community. The current facility is great and provides access to the Internet for those who don’t have computers at home. The book resources are excellent.
Ingrid Elena Pavia: The number of children who are born with various challenges for one reason or another is growing. Others will be involved in accidents and/or succumb to illnesses which place them ~ temporarily, long-term, or permanently ~ in a position that should make us all take a serious look at the true accessibility and inclusive play we should incorporate into our new playground design/equipment at the Boundary County Fairgrounds.
Senator Shawn Keough: This week – the week of St. Patrick’s Day - the pace of the Legislature is hectic as we work to meet our target completion date of Friday, March 21.
Don Jordan: We can all agree on some core characteristics that are important in our county. Some are rural character, wildlife and clean water.
Senator Shawn Keough: On Friday, March 7, the State Senate honored four Idaho servicemen who fought and lost their lives in Afghanistan during 2013. Families of the honorees attended the special ceremony.
Tim Patton: As you may know, the upcoming county comprehensive plan proposed revision for chapter 13 and 14 will be at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 18, in the county extension building. This proposed revision by the planning and zoning commission is a total disaster for our county.
Jeff and Tia Avery: Allen Avery is our son. We would like to apologize to the people involved and the community for his reckless behavior and lack of regard for human life.
