To the Editor:
I would like to thank all the people who have supported me in my campaign for City Council, I really appreciate it. I would especially like to thank my children and grandkids, G.R. and Linda Dunbar, and Haden Williams for helping me distribute door hangers around town. Also thanks go out to all the people who wrote letters to the Editor in my behalf.
I would like to congratulate Mr. Butch Hulse on becoming our next City Councilman and wish him the best of luck.
To the Editor:
I would like to take a momentÂ to thank everyone who took time out of their busy schedules to come out and vote the second time in the Blackfoot City Council election.Â
In our busy lives it's sometimes hard to fit everything inÂ butÂ your votes doÂ count, no matterÂ which candidate you voted for. The only way we can change things that weÂ feel need to be changed is to get involved.

I keep telling myself I shouldnâ€™t care. In a sense I donâ€™t have a dog in this fight. My children are raised. My grandchildren attend schools in Utah and Washington,
but I pay taxes in Idaho. And I care what happens to our home in the future.
So, too, do Governor C.L. â€śButchâ€ť Otter, Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna and all the members of the Idaho Legislature.
Included among those who care are the teachers and administrators in our public schools and the parents of the children in their charge.
But thereâ€™s a disconnect somewhere.

Senate Bill 1184 erodes meaningful parental Involvement and local control.
PTA is the largest child advocacy group in the nation and represents thousands of members which include parents, grandparents, teachers, school board members, community advocates and Idaho students.
The future success of Idaho students depends on their receiving a â€śthorough educationâ€ť that prepares them to contribute as adult citizens of Idaho and the United States.
