First Annual Media Award Winners

Posted By on Mon, Mar 2, 2015 at 11:50 AM

The first annual Idaho Media Awards were handed out to eleven recipients, representing six separate film and video projects, Feb. 28. Winners were chosen from a national blue ribbon committee.

"We wanted to make sure there were no local biases, so we enlisted the help of industry experts around the country to help with the judge," awards host Lance Thompson told winners. "They were impressed with your work."

First-place awards went to Robert Lane for I-Doll Cammie Pavesic and Michael Gough for the documentary Add the Words; Chad Case and Jonathan Conti for The Butter Basin, Bradley and Charles Norton for Canyon
, Robert Vestal for his still image titled “Shadowbreak;” and Micron Technology employees Eric Barth, Alf deVarona, and Jason Jacopian for Power of Progress.

“We need this industry to be big enough to be seen,” Idaho Commerce Department Director Jeff Sayer told the gathering. “This (event) tonight is a step in that direction.”

Video: One Block at a Time #003—Capitol, Broad and Front

Posted By on Fri, Feb 22, 2013 at 3:28 PM

A historic photo of Boises Capitol Boulevard, long before a proposal rumored to create a home for Trader Joes.

Late last year, Boise Weekly reported on a potential Boise outlet of the popular grocery store Trader Joe's, with signs pointing toward four retail buildings proposed for a dirt parking lot at 300 S. Capitol Blvd.

While developers have yet to move forward, some Boiseans are looking at how the project would fit in with Capitol Boulevard, the historic motorway stretching between the Boise Depot and the Idaho State Capitol.

In this episode of One Block at a Time, we caught up with Preservation Idaho Vice President John Bertram. He's concerned about the density of the proposed project and how it fits with city planners' vision for Capitol Boulevard, and takes us on a look back at the Bunting tractor showroom, an art deco building torn down decades ago.

Take a look below.

One Block at a Time #001—The Carnegie Public Library Building

Posted By on Fri, Sep 21, 2012 at 1:45 PM

History does indeed repeat itself. In the 1970s, the Boise Public Library moved into its current location on Capitol Boulevard after outgrowing the Carnegie Public Library at 815 Washington St. and before the famous exclamation point.

But now the Library! faces a new dilemma: expanding once more to accommodate a population greater than 200,000. A 2001 study concluded the city would need an 185,000-square-foot facility by 2020—and that could cost as much as $118 million.

In the first installment of a new video series called One Block at a Time, Boise Weekly looks at the history of the steel tycoon-funded Carnegie library, and at the future of the city's library service.

Every month, BW will investigate a portion of the city to dish on past, present and possible futures. This story of Boise's library service began at City Hall in 1895. Check the video below to find out how far it's come.

TV Station Uses Puppets to Cover Trial

Posted By on Sat, Jan 21, 2012 at 4:21 PM

  • WOIO-TV, Cleveland

It's a little bit of The Today Show [hey, they once had a chimpanzee as a regular]. It's a little bit of The People's Court. And it's a lot of Howdy Doody.

An Ohio TV station, barred from bringing its camera into a courtroom, has decided to cover a federal corruption trial with puppets. The news director of WOIO-TV, a CBS affiliate in Cleveland, thought that by using puppets, his station could lampoon the trial, which includes testimony about hookers, gambling and sexually transmitted diseases, while telling the tale of alleged bribery and racketeering. The station calls its reports, "The Puppet's Court."

Karl Idsvoog, journalism professor at Kent State University, wasn't impressed. "Why would anyone approve that to go on the air because it was dull and boring," he said.

Boise Men "Walk a Mile in Her Shoes" for Domestic Violence

Posted By on Fri, Jul 8, 2011 at 5:32 PM

Local men, including five police captains and Ada County Prosecutor Greg Bower, walked through downtown wearing high heels to raise awareness of domestic violence this afternoon.

They marched from FACES on Sixth Street to Boise Art Museum, where several speakers discussed problems with domestic violence and the participants were offered water to deal with the heat.

"Can I just pour it on my feet," laughed one participant. "They're killing me."
