This week's Oregon, Idaho and Washington Public Affairs Digests are out, political news continues regionally as Washington Republicans hold their convention in Vancouver and the Idaho 1st district contest continues to take shape.
There are also reviews of the Oregon state government 9% solution, school closures in Portland and elsewhere, the shift of Boise State University athletics to the Mountain West Conference, new filings in the Lowe court case, the dispute over trust lands in the Okanogan territory and much more.
As a reminder: We're now publishing weekly editions of the Public Affairs Digests - for Idaho, Washington and Oregon - moving from a monthly to a weekly rundown of what's happening. And we're taking it all-electronic: The print edition will be moving to e-mail.
That means we can include more information, and get it out a lot faster: The weekly Digests will be in your in-box first thing Monday morning. If you subscribe, of course: That's $59 a year, for 50 issues and the yearbook. Yes, including the yearbook. The Idaho Yearbook, which we published for years up to 2002, will return early in 2011 - in printed book form - and Digest subscribers get it for free with their subscription. And the Oregon and Washington yearbooks will be coming out at the same time.
If you'd like to take a look at one of the new weekly Digests, here's a link to the Idaho edition, to the Oregon edition and to the Washington edition. If you'd like to subscribe, here are the links (through to PayPal) for Idaho, for Oregon and for Washington.
