Kirk Dixon: I want to thank Rebecca Husbey for her letter. Voter fraud is wide spread this election year. I was saddened when I heard that Boundary County got the machines.
Rebecca Huseby: Folks, I have just received word from a state representative that the people have the right to refuse to use the voting machines.
Brian Zimmerman: Dave Kramer is the right choice for Sheriff. I have heard and read the rumors and falsehoods circulating about Dave and his lack of qualifications.
U.S. Senator Mike Crapo: The men and women who serve in the Guard and Reserve and their families give immensely of their time and talents to serving our nation. Their skills and commitment also add great value to the workforce and our communities.
U.S. Congressman Raul Labrador: As we near the end of the 114th Congress, many groups have released their scorecards rating members of Congress on their performance. I’m happy to report that my record of fighting for jobs, growing our economy and a smaller, more limited, government has been recognized by four important groups.
Crapo working to improve health care for vets: Idaho veterans and their family members have made it clear that the Veterans Choice Program (Choice program), created to make it easier for veterans to get health care, does not work for Idahoans.
Senators James E. Risch and Angus S. King: In the 2015 novel Ghost Fleet, the U.S. is challenged in a future war by a technologically savvy enemy. The enemy exploits the cyber vulnerabilities in a U.S. military that has grown overly reliant on highly networked and computer-dependent weapons platforms. Left nearly defenseless, the U.S. comes to realize it must rely on long-retired, technologically simpler and ultimately more dependable weapon systems to fight back.
Senator Mike Crapo: Thank you to the approximately 4,000 Idahoans who attended the town meetings I held in every incorporated city in Idaho over the past two years. Your thoughtful insights reinforce my belief that the best solutions for good governing come from the ground up. The angst in our country is clear. Much of this frustration is driven by decisions and politics in Washington, DC.
Congressman Raul Labrador: Americans spent $1.89 trillion to comply with federal regulations last year. Amazingly, that figure exceeds the combined individual and corporate income taxes the IRS expects to collect for the 2015 tax year, $1.82 trillion. This hidden tax amounts to nearly $15,000 per U.S. household, according to the Competitive Enterprise Institute.
U.S. Congressman Raul Labrador: Every year, Idahoans and others in the West suffer through wildfires that damage public health, destroy valuable timber, wreck watersheds and kill wildlife.
Howard Kent: When Mike Ashby made mention of Stone's Hill (School in a small town: First Grade Memories),  it also triggered memories for me. I grew up on Monroe Street in the 1940s and 50s, just a "stones throw" (pun intended) from Stone's Hill on Van Buren Street.
U.S. Representative Raul Labrador: On Friday, I completed my summer tour of all 19 counties in Idaho’s First District – the most beautiful in America. Spanning from Canada to Nevada, the nation’s 18th largest district covers almost 40,000 square miles; 99.4 percent of that land is rural.
Bonners Ferry GROW: Gardeners for Regional Organic Wellbeing — GROW! — thank all the supporters including so many members of the Bonners Ferry community as well as from surrounding towns and Montana who bought tickets for our recent raffle which raised over $900 to fund ongoing operations.
Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter: As students start a new school year, they and their families should be confident that Idaho is focused on providing the opportunities and support they need to learn and achieve. Our five-year plan for improving education in Idaho is well underway, and recommendations from the Task Force for Improving Education are being deployed in schools and districts across Idaho.
U.S. Congressman Raul Labrador: One of the best things about my job is meeting young people committed to improving themselves and their communities. Last Tuesday, we presented Congressional Award medals to six North Idaho students at a ceremony in my Coeur d’Alene office.
Gerald B. Higgs:  What does the BREXIT vote in the United Kingdom have to do with us?
Gerald B. Higgs:  Election Reflection
Rosanne Smith:  Says Moyie City Council meeting an eye opener
Gary Leonard:  Says Sheriff election comes down to two candidates
Rosanne Smith:  Not filing quarterly report violates state law, again
