    TWIN FALLS — Sayrd Heidemann hopes to hire five people a day until she’s filled 445 new entry-level positions in Twin Falls.

As unemployment hovers below 3 percent, it will be a challenge to get applicants amid fierce competition, but she feels her team is up to the task. “I filled over 150 positions in the last four months,”...

    The New York Times ^ | 14 July 2017 | Conor Dougherty
    Idaho achieved a notable distinction last year: It became one of the hardest places in America for someone to quit a job for a better one. The state did this by making it easier for companies to enforce noncompete agreements, which prevent employees from leaving their company for a competitor. While its economy is known for agriculture potatoes are among the states biggest exports Idaho has a long history as a technology hub. And the new law landed in the middle of the tech world, causing a clash between hungry start-ups looking to poach employees and more established...

    A 15-year-old girl is accused of stealing a pickup truck on Tuesday and promptly leading Ada County deputies on a chase that exceeded 100 mph. Four other girls, ranging in age from 9 to 15, were also in the pickup at the time of the pursuit, police said. The incident began around 4 a.m. Tuesday when an Ada County sheriffs deputy saw a Ford F-150 going 65 mph in a 40 mph zone on Overland Road, by the Maple Grove Road intersection. The deputy turned on his emergency lights and attempted to pull the truck over when it took off...

    POST FALLS, Idaho The nuns at St. Dominic's school and convent near Post Falls said teens have been trespassing on their property and verbally assaulted them for a long time. The nuns said the teens will come right into their main parking lot at St. Dominics. When nuns are just a couple of dozen yards away, the teens will swear and yell insults directly at them. The nuns who live at the convent said they believe the teens are going out of their way to harass them. "It's becoming more and more aggressive, Sister Aimee Dominique said. The nuns...

    BURLEY Fifth District Judge Randy Stoker said Tuesday he would have shot a Burley man accused in a baseball bat beating had the man broken into the judges home instead of the victims. Stoker handed down the maximum sentence of 15 years in prison for Logan John Urrizaga, 23, but suspended that sentence and placed Urizzaga in the states retained jurisdiction program aimed at rehabilitating offenders. Urrizaga was charged in September after he beat the victim with the bat in the forehead and legs. In the middle of handing down the sentence, Stoker told Urrizaga, who was talking to...

    The travesty of justice in Idaho is now complete. In the summer of 2016, a 5-year-old girl was orally and anally raped and urinated upon by three Muslim migrant boys in Twin Falls, Idaho. Since then, instead of getting justice, the victims family has been abused by law enforcement and governing authorities as if they were the criminals because what happened to their little girl contradicts the politically correct narrative about Muslim migrants. On Tuesday, the perpetrators were sentenced, and the final injustice was done to this poor girl. The injustice began in the proceedings at the Snake River...

    A judge sentenced three Muslim refugee boys in the sexual assault of a 5-year-old girl in Idaho, but nobody knows the length or terms of the sentence because the judge has barred everyone in the courtroom, including the victims own parents, from speaking about the case. Mathew Staver, chairman and co-founder of the nonprofit legal assistance agency Liberty Counsel, told WND that Judge Borresen was completely out of line in issuing a gag order after the fact in a criminal case. Its unconstitutional for the judge to do that. There are gag orders that can be put on people during...

    When the governor called, Sherry Japhet answered. Japhet is a freelance makeup artist from Boise, Idaho. She's worked in the business for more than 20 years, but without a license. That's never been a problem for her. She's landed gigs from coast-to-coast, working on television sets and for fashion magazines. Some of those calls came from Idaho Gov. Butch Otter. Japhet has helped Otter and his wife, Lori, look their best for televised public service announcements and political ads. No more, she says.

    In a first and significant step towards the remonetization of Gold and Silver, Idaho voted tonight to remove income tax on precious metals. This is the first step in what will likely be a cascade of other states following suit. Last week we discussed here the Arizona Senate Finance and Rules Committees' calling out the Fed on Gold Taxation by considering legislation (HB 2014) officially defining gold, silver, and other precious metals as legal tender. The bill also exempts transactions in precious metals from state capital gains taxes, thus ensuring that people are not punished by the taxman for rejecting...

    Idaho Republican Rep. Raul Labrador, who made headlines over the weekend for his comment at a town hall that "nobody" dies from a lack of health care, is running for Idaho governor. The fourth-term congressman filed paperwork Tuesday morning with Idaho's Secretary of State. Labrador, a conservative Republican and founding member of the House Freedom Caucus, faced immediate backlash over the weekend after claiming "nobody dies because they don't have access to health care" at a town hall in Idaho. Later, the Republican issued a statement to reporters acknowledging his answer "wasn't very elegant," but he was "responding to the...

    BURLEY, Idaho Potato farmers say the expansion of the local McCain Foods USA processing plant should significantly increase demand for their crop and boost the areas economy. McCain officials announced the $200 million investment this week. The expansion should be operational by the late summer of 2018 and will employ 180 new workers. From my standpoint, thats as big of a thing as we could have had announced in this area, said Mark Darrington, a McCain grower from Declo. For this to come right into the heart of our production area, this is a huge win for agriculture and...

    Three refugees, ages 14, 10 and seven, pled guilty to sexually assaulting a five-year-old girl in Idaho. The boys, one from Iraq and two from Eritrea, entered their guilty plea last week but the cases resolution received almost no national attention. We agreed to the plea bargains. That by no means implies my clients were, or are, fully satisfied with the outcome of these cases or the prosecuting attorney, Mark Guerry, the attorney for the girls family told the Idaho Statesman. After 10 months their right to some form of justice was long overdue. They were prepared to testify at...
