On The Monday, August 5, 2019 Edition Of Idaho Matters

  • DACA students and Idaho scholarships.
  • Inspiring younger voters.
  • A female Julius Caesar.
  • Why are there counties and cities with the same name but the city is not in the county?

-Can DACA students receive an Idaho Opportunity Scholarship? That idea is sparking debate among some lawmakers and the Idaho Freedom Foundation. Is it possible, is it legal and will legislators ban Dreamers from the scholarships? Idaho Matters takes a look.

-How do you inspire a younger generation to vote? One project wants to get more 18- to 25-year-olds to register and vote in upcoming elections. One way to reach potential young voters is to register students to vote in high school and college. 

-This summer, the Idaho Shakespeare Festival is presenting Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, with a twist. Portraying the history’s most famous emperor is veteran actress Carole Healey. Joining Carole on Idaho Matters is Sara Bruner, who audiences will know from her countless performances with the festival, but this season is the director of Julius Caesar and Taming of the Shrew.

-When Robin Fehlau was planning her move to Boise eight years ago, something peculiar kept throwing off her housing search: homes in Boise County kept on showing up, all of which were miles and miles away from her office. She soon realized it was because Boise is not actually in Boise County, confusing both search engines and Robin herself. This left her curious, which soon led her to ask Wanna Know Idaho.

As Senior Producer of our live daily talk show Idaho Matters, I’m able to indulge my love of storytelling and share all kinds of information (I was probably a Town Crier in a past life!). My career has allowed me to learn something new everyday and to share that knowledge with all my friends on the radio.
