This is the story of the Idaho State Police – and an important part of the story of Idaho over the last 75 years it has been in existence and helped maintain the law and citizen safety. It’s been a journey ranging from barely-functioning motor vehicles and hardly-there roads to computer and biotechnology. Kelly Kast has spent years researching the history and interviewing scores of current and former state police, and has emerged with a remarkably detailed and engrossing story of Idaho.

Diamondfield


How many copies?




The Old West saw few murder trials more spectacular – or misunderstood – than of “Diamondfield” Jack Davis. After years of brushes with the noose and legal maneuvering, Davis was pardoned. Max Black has spent years researching the Diamondfield saga and found startling new evidence never before uncovered – including the weapon and one of the bullets involved in the crime – and now sets out the definitive story, about how Davis wasn’t and couldn’t have been the killer – and about who was. And he tells the story of Davis’ little-known second life after prison, when he made and lost fortunes in the mining fields of Nevada.
Interwoven with the story of the past is Black’s story of the present – how he came to find key elements of a fabulous Old West story a century and more after they had been presumed lost forever.

See the DIAMONDFIELD page for more.

Residents of the Treasure Valley heard and responded to the major campaign that made funding for CWI a reality. Less visible: The behind-the-scenes activity, decades of work and effort that culminated in the bond election of 2007, the soul-searching and pressure brought to bear on behalf of a new community college for Southwest Idaho, the conflict and tensions. How does a college gain accreditation? Who developed the curriculum? Where would be the buildings? From Scratch: Inside the Lightning Launch of the College of Western Idaho tells that story, shared from the inside. Griffin, the first CWI president, offers an intimate, candid telling of the triumphs and frustrations involved with creating a college from the ground up. The foreword was written by Idaho Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter. Boise State University President Bob Kustra called it a “must read,” as did Nampa Mayor Tom Dale.

50 Meds: Available now for your e-reader
&nbsp
America’s health care system is bankrupting its people, businesses and society. It over-treats and under-treats, with poorer results than in most of the industrialized world. Its ills are so many that there is no single cure. But we can cure its ills. There are a lot of specific things we can do, starting now. This book lists 50 of them, from insisting on clear and consistent medical pricing to fixing corporate law, sensibly regulating insurers and bringing patients more fully into the process. American health care can be safer than it is now, and deliver better health for much less cost.

50 Meds for a Health Health System by Randy Stapilus. Available in print from Ridenbaugh Press or as an e-book in all popular formats, $3.95
