I totally agree tmp4. What do you think about an Aquarium?

I hope Bonneville County and Idaho Falls City residents get pro-active about the proposed subdivision east of 15th East between 4900 South and Sandy Downs. Yes, the land has already been Annexed into the city. The first part of the development of about 40 houses seems appropriate. It is the remaining development of 100+ homes which will border Sand Creek Golf course on the west of the golf course. These smaller homes are in a development that will utilize the road immediately north of Sandy Downs as the major entrance and exit to the remaining development.

I think, as do others, this is a MAJOR problem for the amount of traffic it will generate. Additionally, can you even visualize the parking, noise and pedestrians in the area during Beer Fest, Horse Racing and other Sandy Downs activities such as concerts or the War Bonnet Roundup?

You can send letters, email or call etc. the City Council members until they vote on the zoning. I am not familiar with the Ammon Developer developing this property. I don't see this ultimately as benefitting anyone but one man wanting to build houses on all that Sandy property. The Sand Dune will be part of the development as it blows into the smaller proposed homes.

And tmp4, very probably the sand and lower layers under it are how come Sand Creek can't build a nice Clubhouse.

What do you think of a development of houses so close to Sandy Downs with increased traffic, increased people and the noise from Sandy Downs? Remember, this is the southern part of the inner loop of a Belt Route.

Default Idaho Falls Paramedics to teach ISU Paramedics in Idaho Falls

I'm glad to see this pairing. ISU is actually going to move the paramedic program to Idaho Falls. Ii.F. Paramedics will teach others who wish to become Paramedics. ISU is tossing a bone to Idaho Falls. We'll see if the pattern continues or this is isolated.

It is a great move though, given that EIRMC has had Trauma II Designation from the American College of Surgeons the longest of any Idaho Hospital. That matters as almost 100% of flights by AIR Idaho has a paramedic as the second crew member. The Idaho Falls Paramedics have worked as those Paramedics for about tw8o or three decades. There are rescue and treatment situations they can offer paramedic students that no other campus can. Students will be doing their clinical rotations with the I.F. Fire Department.

I'm happy to see this for the second year. It helps the Parks Dept. and is another Christmas activity.

City Council approved the selling of alcohol until 2am. Much needed change IMO

Also alcohol can now be sold on Christmas Day.

I'm a little disappointed they did not address Sunday sales. Was that a part of that? If anyone knows?

I am perfectly happy to have government stay out of the hours that businesses can be open, but I think it is shame when businesses decide they have to stay open on major holidays so their employees don't get the day off to be with family on days that are strong for big family gatherings.

Not that I want government to get involved in the issue.
