  • Idaho Matters looks back one year later at the Boise mass stabbing.
  • Many of Idaho's sewage treatment plants get a failing grade.
  • What do you do if you love to run, but end up having a heart attack?

-This weekend marked a sad anniversary in Boise. One year ago, a man allegedly stabbed nine people at a birthday party. A three-year-old girl was killed. We take a look back at the crime and find out how the refugees in Boise are responding a year later.

-A lot of sewage treatment plants in Idaho got a failing grade in the latest Idaho Conservation League study. Gemma Gaudette talks to the League about why they scored so low and how the ICL wants to help change that trend.

-One local sprinter talks about his journey from active guy, to heart attack patient, to getting back on the track. We talk to Jim Lucker about a special program that got him running again in the Senior Games.
