After incomes a Ph.D. in chemistry on the College of Illinois in 1957, a 12 months on the DuPont Central Analysis Division in Wilmington, Del., and 57 years guiding graduate pupil analysis at Washington State College, I believe I’ve a fairly good grasp of what science is, it doesn’t matter what Fritz Kettenburg thinks (Tribune, April 18).
Arguments in opposition to organic evolution are purely motivated by fundamentalist faith — Christian or Islamic.
Scientific conclusions are at all times topic to revision within the gentle of recent proof, however you need to have proof. Faith is just not proof.
I’m questioning why the Idaho Fish and Recreation Division is providing swan hunts in northern Idaho. I can see no justifiable motive. Do they want the cash? At $22.75 per tag and 50 tags per season, I doubt it.
We’re simply now starting to expertise the pleasure of seeing an occasional swan, often a Tundra, however on uncommon events a Trumpeter. Trumpeter swans had been down to simply 72 swans nationwide in 1932.
So what motivated this? I believe it’s protected to say it’s not the cash. Is it politically pushed? I odor a rat.
Why aren’t they extra forthcoming with their statistics, corresponding to variety of birds within the space, numbers killed and forms of swans? I strongly really feel that for each swan harvested, a number of others shall be misplaced attributable to wounded birds that fly away and die. Others could also be troublesome to retrieve.
Swans are a sublime chook that mate for all times. They deserve safety.

Greater than a 12 months after the COVID-19 outbreak, the outcomes are lastly in. Mandated shutdowns, masks carrying and social distancing don’t work. On high of them being ineffective measures, they’re extremely damaging to our financial stability and social construction. Fortunately, the state of Idaho has had a typical sense method to insurance policies involving the pandemic to this point. Nevertheless, now we face the subsequent risk to our liberties — pressured vaccination.
Based on the Facilities for Illness Management and Prevention numbers, solely 6 p.c of COVID-19 sufferers have died from the virus alone. The opposite 94 p.c who died had two to a few comorbidities.
Additionally, take into account the general dying fee for the present inhabitants this 12 months is just not considerably increased than any of the prior six years.
Moreover, deaths from the widespread flu are down 98 p.c this 12 months.
These knowledge factors made me notice COVID-19 is a rip-off. This hoax has been perpetrated in an effort to strip the citizenry of their liberties and freedoms whereas giving the federal government extra energy and oversight over our on a regular basis interactions.
I want to enchantment to the legislators of our state to elevate all masks mandates, take away social distancing measures and ban vaccine passports from being enacted on this nice state.
I moved from California to flee political persecution and government-orchestrated medical tyranny. Idahoans worth life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Let’s preserve Idaho the way in which it was once I moved right here and preserve it from devolving right into a socialist state.
