Tiny Houses seem to be all the rage these days. They even have their own TV shows. But, are all tiny homes the same? How are they constructed? Are they legal residences? Who lives in them? And why are they so popular now?

Unusual times call for unusual actions. Such as a City Club summer political pundits forum!

 

Let’s face it. It’s been an uncommonly hectic few months on Capitol Hill, and it doesn’t look like things are likely to quiet down any time soon. And the 2018 Idaho elections are starting to get crowded, and a little bit chippy.

In 1938, an energetic group of civic leaders led the charge to create a ski area in the mountains above Boise. With rousing support from citizens, the business community, the Forest Service and city and state officials, the dream for Boise's very own ski area came to fruition when Bogus Mountain Recreation Area opened in December 1942. From its inception, Bogus Basin was established as a nonprofit community resource. It has grown to meet our community's changing needs and has gained national acclaim for its accessibility to all, regardless of income, age or physical abilities.

Public health has a long and interesting history of fighting infectious diseases, from yellow fever and malaria to cholera and typhoid fever. While these problems still exist, and public health agencies in Idaho continue to deal daily with whooping cough, tuberculosis, and influenza outbreaks, the scope of public health has expanded greatly to include cancer, heart disease, workplace health and the impact of environmental problems.

Listen to the forum from the 11th of January, 2017, recorded at the Boise Centre.

It wouldn't be a new legislative session without a bunch of big questions. Why should 2017 be any different?

This is the second forum in the series hosted by Idaho Environmental Forum and City Club of Boise.

Downtown Boise wasn't always what it is today. In fact, it almost wasn't a traditional Downtown at all. In the 1970s, one faction wanted Downtown to become a regional mall; another faction wanted the mall in suburbs. Boise's redevelopment agency prepared for a mall by tearing down blocks of historic buildings.

But this City Club forum will explore the role of civil discourse and collaboration in guiding wise business decisions, and that's what has prevailed in Boise

Belonging is a fundamental human need. Equally strong is the drive to exclude. This is what Seattle University School of Law professor Sara Rankin calls "the influence of exile," which transcends individuals when powerful groups use laws and policies to restrict marginalized groups. The impulse to exclude is visible today in laws that criminalize and eject visibly poor people, including the homeless, from public spaces.
