    I am looking for information on Horse Island, which is now under the American falls dam. Hyrum Stanger was my Great Grandfather and he owned land on the island. I am now on a quest to find out all I can about the island and the people that lived there. Are there any pictures? Maps? Histories? Articles?

    I was driving from Idaho to Lake Tahoe last week and was saddened by all the news involving the police. We could put blue light bulbs on porches or anywhere else around our homes. My hope is an officer drives by a home or business notice’s a blue lite and it will touch their hearts, and can see firsthand there is support for them. I know in my heart we can help save officers lives with this movement. I started sending emails to TV stations nationwide. So I’m hoping everyone that has read my email will help get this message out. I called Lowes they said they would have plenty of Blue lite bulbs on hand or I’m sure any place that sells bulbs would have this color. I hope for your support and any other ideas how to make this work. I’m hoping soon we can flip a switch and America will be lit up with blue light bulbs.

    I’m sending this message to every Newspaper in each state. I’m going to keep emailing anybody that will listen.

    This is the lite at my house with my dog and a sign supporting the K-9 officers. I’m going in the next couple of days to buy bulbs and start passing them out around the area

    Please if at all possible and I’m not breaking any rules please send this story to a community group in your area that might like to help. This is not about my husband and I it’s about the support for the police and their K-9 partners around the nation.

    I also hope the White House will follow us and light up with blue lights.

    I’m sorry if this is a duplicate email

    My town Tahoe City Lake Tahoe Calif is working to light up the towns around this lake and hope other cities and towns do the same.

    I have read the Press & Times for over 60 years. In the recent past, my observation has been that the publications have drifted to become reflective of major partisanship.
    It seems that a review and re-dedication to your mission statement would be in order. Thank you for your consideration.

    Would anyone have any idea information about a murder in American Falls in 1942. The victim was Loren McMerlin and the killer was Gus Becker.
    Thanks in advance
