Then and Now

Posted Sunday, January 1, 2012, at 7:58 AM

That's the name for a series of articles from the dreaded Idaho Statesman. A rag as far as some of you are concerned, but this is a very interesting series of articles and pictures dealing with Idaho during the Depression. In side bar to the article are links to some of the other articles. I found them interesting because I am a new comer to Idaho. Those who were born and raised here, but not as old as some of us may find the articles interesting, as well as the photos.

Happy New Year

I'm an almost 61 year old transplant from California 6 1/2 years ago. I work in road construction, those dastardly flaggers. My family roots go back to New England farms, not the big city. The last town I lived in when in California grew from 16K to 40K in 10 years, and that was enough to drive me out. I don't engage in or tolerate name calling. Name calling reduces an adult discussion to grade school play yard level. I have never served in the military, but have family members who have, dating back to WW1. I am neither a Democrat nor a Republican. I am neither extremely Liberal or Conservative. I am raising my 16 year old grandson, not what I expected at this age, and dealing with those issues as well as my health and near retirement which are 2 things I intend to talk about. I decided to try my hand at this thanks to the warm welcome I have received on Mike's blog. When I take a position, I will defend it until I am shown that I am mistaken, and when that happens, I apologize. There are other things about me that will come out over time I'm sure.
