(IDAHO FALLS, ID) – U.S. Sen. Jim Risch was in Idaho Falls Tuesday. He spoke during a question and answer session hosted by the Greater Idaho Falls Chamber of Commerce.


Risch tells KIDK that one of the biggest international issues facing the country is Islamic terrorism. He called ISIS a “danger to America” that will grow worse if the U.S. puts more troops in the region. Risch is part of a growing coalition of libertarian-leaning Republicans who want to avoid another major military conflict overseas.


Several lawmakers say the task of controlling ISIS would be better handled by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

Starting on October 1st, the Boise Airport will begin flights to Idaho Falls twice per day on Wednesday and Thursdays.


“We expect this service to be utilized by local businesses that frequently travel between Idaho Falls and Boise” said David Schroeder, Gem Air’s Director of Air Development. Idaho Falls is the state’s fourth largest city behind Boise, Nampa and Meridian – it’s great to connect those markets via flight, he added.


According to Bill Connors, President and CEO of the Boise Metro Chamber of Commerce. “The Boise Chamber applauds the BOI and IDA airports and Gem Air on connecting Idaho Falls to the business centers of Boise. Boise businesses have frequently requested reestablishing this connection. It is positive news for both communities.” Connors said.


Flight Schedule:
Idaho Falls-Boise 6:45 a.m. 8:05 a.m. Wed/Thurs

Boise-Idaho Falls 8:45 a.m. 10:05 a.m. Wed/Thurs

Idaho Falls-Boise 3:45 p.m. 5:05 p.m. Wed/Thurs

Idaho Falls hosts bicycle cop training session - The Register-Guard

0 comments

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho — Law enforcement officers and EMTs came to Idaho Falls this week from as far away as Florida and Washington state for one reason: to ride bikes.


But the eight public safety officials weren’t here to enjoy a leisurely bicycle ride along the greenbelt.


They were learning how to climb staircases, dodge traffic and shoot guns while riding at the International Police Mountain Bike Association’s Instructor School.


The weeklong training session that ended Friday was led by public safety bicycling experts, who covered a wide range of tactics. Graduates received instructor certification, so they can go back to their respective agencies and share what they learned with their colleagues.


Bonneville County Sheriff’s Sgt. Doug Metcalf, one of the participants, said his office offered to host the training session so its own bicycle-patrol team could learn from the experts.


The sheriff’s bike team consists of 13 deputies, who trade four wheels for two when the weather permits.


Metcalf said the session’s three instructors, who came in from Colorado and New Mexico, led the students on rigorous bike rides so they could learn how to ride on different terrains. The instructors also took the students to a shooting range so they could learn how to shoot guns while on their bikes.


“Shooting from a bicycle is a a lot different than shooting while standing,” Metcalf said. “You’re wearing gloves so the grip is different and you’ve got to be able to shoot with a helmet on.”


Metcalf said much of the training centered around “public relations” and bicycle safety.
