Caldwell Mayor Garret Nancolas discusses growth . . . Idaho gubernatorial candidates sound off . . . and we'll find out why the state's gas prices are so high . . . 

- While most municipalities in the Treasure Valley have been experiencing explosive growth, Caldwell's downtown corridor has been stagnating. City officials are hoping to turn that trend around with the opening of Indian Creek Plaza, an events center that would host concerts, farmer's markets and other events. In addition to drawing foot traffic into downtown Caldwell, the hope is that the project will attract downtown residents as well.

Caldwell mayor Garret Nancolas joins Idaho Matters to talk about the project and how Caldwell is handling their growth.

- We continue our series of interviews with Idaho's gubernatorial candidates; Boise State Public Radio's James Dawson speaks with Republican candidate Lisa Marie and BSPR's Frankie Barnhill talks with Republican candidate Harley Brown.

- Boise gas prices are hovering around $3.20 for a gallon of the cheap stuff, the national average is just above $2.80. We'll talk with Bret DeLange, chief of the Idaho Attorney General's Consumer Protection Division about why our fuel prices are so high.
