Best Death of an Eyesore

The three curses on the Hole are officially blessed

Editors' Picks

We've said it once, we'll say it again: Finally filling the Boise Hole needed major fanfare. But nobody could have known the former eyesore, may it rest in peace, was cursed soil. Literally. The big wigs behind Zion's Bank who are footing the bill for a $76 million, 18-story tower to fill the hole, put enough stock in that claim to enlist the help of Mike Cutler, Boise State professor and Lakota tribe member, who performed a ceremony to remove three separate curses plaguing the parcel of land. In all seriousness, Cutler's ceremony urged attendees to live with a good heart.
