to the editor from this week's Chronicle:
My name is Curtis Mathis , and I am a third grader from Anselmo-Merna
School in Merna, NE. I am nine years old. My class is having
a States Fair and I have drawn your state to research. Our States
Fair will be May 6th. I will be learning about what your state flag
looks like, your state flower, tree, bug, and motto. Also, famous
people that come from your state, popular attractions, and what your state
is known for. I would really appreciate any help that your readers
can give me. Post cards, souvenirs, pamphlets, pictures, letters,
and anything else that you think would help me with my report would be
fantastic! Thank you very much for your help!
Please send your information to
PO Box 68

It is baffling! How can our leaders and in fact, we the voters and
followers be so brain dead? At one time we would have been accused of "losing
all our marbles!" Why? Well, somehow we allowed Obamacare to become policy,
when all of us deep down know that huge federal give-a-ways destroy us
economically and socially! And are doing so! Are we really to accept the
forced "tax" our uninsured young people are forced to pay if they choose
not to buy insurance? Or force a single man to purchase a maternity policy?
Next comes Common Core, stomping to ribbons the fact that we all know
that "One size never did fit all!" And blatantly telling us first that
"CC will allow students from any school to transfer up-to-date and par
to any other school," while in the same breath we are told that "Each school
still controls its own programs!" Can we believe this? Are we brain dead?
Now we read that the U.S. Forest Service is proposing to "straighten
Crooked River" (See Idaho County Free Press Editorial 4/16/14). Can you
believe it? My father on the Fenn Highway district told me they could not
meddle with Grave's Creek road..., cannot change a natural flowing creek.
And I have countless examples of land owners who have been warned not to
log across or change a meandering little creek on their property. Threatened
But now, our all-powerfull and knowing feds are going to "straighten
Crooked River!" At a cost of millions of dollars! And we are 17+
trillion in debt!! As the Free Press editorial says, "Have we lost our
minds?" If so, Lord save us, our ship is sinking and our end is near!

I donít know who in government conceived of the idea to make the first
payment on our Idaho County Taxes due on or before Dec. 20th, but with
Christmas just around the corner it is really kind of poor timing.
Paying taxes is not any fun, but when I hand my tax payment to a friendly,
courteous and smiling person, part of the team in room number two at the
courthouse, it helps!
Deanna Hall has been in place for the last year and a half, and I totally
like the way she has coached her personnel to have me leave happy. I am
voting to keep Idaho County Coach Treasure Deanna Hallís team in place.
