On The Thursday, August 8, 2019 Edition Of Idaho Matters

  • Con-Con Part Two.
  • A deep dive into fish stocking in Idaho.
  • How eating CHIP (not chips!) can be healthy.
  • Soccer Friendly camps for kids.

-Back in June, Idaho Matters spoke to Concordia University School of Law associate professor Mckay Cunningham and Georgetown law professor David Super about a “Con-Con.” That caught the eye of a group called the Wolf-PAC which has an Idaho presence. They want a “free and fair elections amendment” to be approved by a state-based convention. In the interest of fairness, we wanted them to come on the show and discuss this issue.

-You’ve heard us report before on places about to be stocked with fish by Idaho Fish and Game. A few hundred trout in a river ... a few kokanee salmon in a lake ... maybe a few dozen channel catfish in a pond ... what does that add up to? Try 30 million fisha year. That’s right. Thirty million fish every single year in Idaho.

-How would you like to lower your cholesterol, your blood pressure, your blood sugar — and lose some weight? Sound too good to be true? St. Luke’s is trying to do all of that with the “Complete Health Improvement Program” or “CHIP.” It’s not a diet. It’s an 18-session lifestyle enrichment program. The goal is to change habits and lifestyles to reduce disease risk factors.

-You may have heard about the big international soccer friendly this Saturday between Team USA and Team Mexico at the Centurylink arena. But have you heard of the other events going on this week that include a player combine and youth camps? Kids can get a chance to get training from the Team USA coaching staff.

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.
