Busy Week!

This week we're excited to welcome the Bannock Bark Park to Conversations from the Edge.  The Bark Park was one of the charities that benefited from Idaho Gives so we'll hear more about that.  Of course the group wants to continue to develop areas for dogs to exercise and play so we'll hear more about that.

In other news this week Congress will resume hearings on Benghazi.  At least 4 "whistleblowers" will be testifying on Wednesday.  It appears that at least one individual may implicate Secretary Hillary Clinton in the development of the notorious "talking points" that Ambassador Susan Rice used on the Sunday Talk shows.  In addition, it appears that the CIA has confirmed that the original talking points cited Al Qaeda involvement but all those references were removed when the White House and Secretary of State Offices were presented with them.  The CIA is saying that it never cited the video in its report at all.

It will be interesting to see how much of the early reporting is correct.  Definitely we will be commenting on all this.

Today a second ammendment meeting is taking place:

Kevin Miller/KIDO Second Amendment Forum
Today at 7:00pm

Click the above title to get more information.  They will be meeting with our legislators to give opinion on what our citizens want in this area.  If you're in Boise, you may want to attend.

Information continues to come out about the Boston Bombers.  It appears that it is likely that they had help and training before they came up with their plan.  It appears that we will get more information as we go.  Questions about the FBI's procedures continue to top the news but it is beginning to look like one of the major issues involved the databases acrossed all the law enforcement and homeland security info not being linked yet.  The structure appears to be there but has not been shared across all the agencies yet.  It may actually come to roost at Congress' door in the end.

This month is Military Appreciation Month so if you have friends or family in the Service,  make sure to let them know you appreciate them.  Also if you see someone from the Service, thank them, they really do a lot for us.  Click the image below for more information.
