A State of the City Address for Kuna! Wow! That is something. It is probably much easier to give an unexpected and unrequired State of the City Address when the news is very positive. However, that is a good thing, is it not? The fact that our mayor has been able to settle the LID dispute is quite a feather in his cap. I’m sure there are some who may be less than thrilled with the resolution, but the fact that a compromise was reached and agreed to takes an enormous burden off the city and gives some relief to the landowners involved.
I’m happy to say that Kuna is beginning to feel more positive. I hope Mayor Nelson can take us back to the positive times we had when he was our mayor before.
I sincerely hope the entire country is on an upswing. It is very difficult to tell. This recession has taken a terrible toll on all of us for the past several years. I think we are lucky to have a mayor and city council that unlike our current federal government appears to be able to accomplish many goals for the city.
Now, wouldn’t it be nice if we could get the new power lines run through the open desert rather than through the city? I hope it happens. It sounds like there is great news about the expansion of the green belt through Kuna.
I would like to see Kuna work towards bringing some sort of industry or job generator to town, but hopefully we don’t get a business all set to move then change our minds and run them out of town again. That has obviously left a mark on our reputation.
Will we ever have an overpass over the railroad through town? Of course, that is really not up to the city to determine, but it could go a long way toward making the city safer and more attractive in many ways, including possibly encouraging businesses to locate here.
Idaho leads the nation in the number of minimum wage, low income working persons. That is a sad comment, and actually makes one wonder how many work at less than minimum wage. It is unfortunate that Idaho, even with almost no state labor laws, still has some of the highest unemployment in the country. I think we are near the top for millionaires per capita, though; I guess that brings our average up. (Please note slight sarcasm)
I hope congress gets off their high horse and works for the country to end this sequester before it goes on any longer. The cuts that it requires are a hell of a price for us to pay for their partisanship. It is absolutely time to limit the amount of time Senators and Representatives can spend in office, and thereby hopefully reduce their campaigning during the session.
I am among the majority of citizens in America who can see no relationship between expanding gun control and reducing violence. I don’t drink and drive, so how would making it more difficult for me to buy or own a motor vehicle help reduce drunk driving? The same logic applies; I don’t go out and kill people; not once in my entire life have I lost control and gone in to a school or theater and began shooting people. So, how is limiting my access to guns and ammunition going to have any effect on mass murders?
Point of fact, by not limiting my access to guns and where I can carry them, that I might have an outside chance of helping stop a mass murder in
