On The Thursday, November 29, 2018 Edition Of Idaho Matters

  • State legislature to re-introduce bill to make conversion therapy illegal.
  • Iditarod dreams in the Treasure Valley - for your dog.
  • Maintaining the traditions of model trains.

- Efforts to make conversion therapy illegal in Idaho died in the statehouse last year. Two new films have brought this discussion to the forefront and on Thursday's Idaho Matters, we'll find out why this practice is dangerous and we'll hear about efforts to make it a crime in the Gem State.

- Dryland Dogs has created a line of products that will let you hitch your dog to a bike, scooter, cart - even skis - and pull you down the Greenbelt like an Iditarod champion. The owner of the Meridian-based company joins Idaho Matters to talk about this new dimension to outdoor recreation.

- Most of us grow out of our toys, but for model train enthusiasts, the tracks go on forever. We'll meet Darrell Sterling, a member of the Old Boise N-Scale Model Railroad Club, and find out why this hobby endures and why the holidays bring out the best in train modeling.
