  • Boise mayoral race financials. 
  • Education leaders hold closed door meeting.
  • Idaho company helps employ people with disabilities.
  • "This Is My Brave".

- Boise mayoral candidates' campaign finance disclosures were made public Friday. Boise State Public Radio reporter James Dawson dug into the numbers, and will share what he learned about what the numbers show. 

- Idaho Superintendent of Public Instruction Sherri Ybarra met with education leaders throughout the state last week. The objective was to explore ways to eliminate obstacles within the department. But the meeting was held behind closed doors and the press was kept out. Idaho Ed News talks to Idaho Matters about the meeting and any implications it may have.
- Employer discrimination laws are designed to prevent companies from discriminating against a candidate based upon certain criteria, including disabilities. However, many people with disabilities have trouble finding employment. We talked with an Idaho nonprofit trying to fix that. 

- Mental health awareness has made great strides over the past few years, but there are still certain stigmas. A group of storytellers got together to share their experiences around mental health, and to increase awareness by starting dialogue.
