- Boise Mayoral Conversations: Wayne Richey.
- Apprenticeships for refugees.
- Student Veterans of America in Idaho.
- We'll continue our interviews with candidates vying to be Boise's next mayor. Today, we're talking with one of the most controversial candidates: Wayne Richey. He argues the city should be made less attractive to slow down exponential growth.
- Idaho's unemloyment rate is almost a full percentage lower than the national one, at 2.9%. That means some jobs go unfilled, including some essential ones in the medial industry. An apprenticeship program at Saint Alphonsus Hospital in Boise brings refugees looking for opportunities beyond low-wage work together with an employer in need of reliable and ambitous workers.
- The University of Idaho has a chapter of SVA, Student Veterans of America. In advance of Veterans Day, one leader in that group hopes to raise money to send members of the group to a conference tying higher education and veterans together.
