Ballot Initiative to Bring Back Horse Race Gambling Machines Will Be on November Ballot

Boise (670 KBOI News) – The ballot initiative to get historic horse race gambling machines back in Idaho has cleared a major hurdle, after the Secretary of State’s Office certified 59,000 signatures, and adding it to the November ballot.

Todd Dvorak, with Save Idaho Horse Racing, which led the petition drive, says they’re not spiking the ball yet.

“There’s a lot of work yet to do,” said Dvorak.  “We’ve got to convince voters that this is the right decision for Idaho and its long and colorful history of horse racing.  This is good for the economy, it’s good for schools, so we’re not celebrating yet.”

The group turned in 114,000 signatures to county clerks, 61,000 of those were submitted to the Secretary of State’s office for final review. Of those 59,000 were verified, but only 56,192 were needed to get on the ballot.

  I’m going to make this short and sweet. Boise State has to knock off a couple of Cowboys in order for this to be a HISTORIC season for the Broncos. Boise State is currently ranked by the AP at #17 in the country. With a win over Oklahoma State on Saturday (if they win)…

What’s in a name?

I thought I was original.  Not quite, though.  On Saturday, the Boise State Broncos play the University of Connecticut Huskies at Albertson’s Stadium.  It’s a late game.  Kickoff isn’t until 8:15pm. I generally refer to the team as “Connecticut”.  A lot of other people call it “UConn”.  I’m not a huge fan of nicknames, cliches…
