caldwell idaho: Canyon County growth one of the strongest in the nation - 03/22/08 11:19 AM
New Census Bureau figures show slightly more of the people coming from other states and nations settled in rural counties than in preceding years. Canyon County has been reckognized for having a growth which was higher than neighboring Ada County, the home of Boise.

That compared to 84 percent of the growth between mid-2005 and mid-2006 and 85 percent from mid-2004 to mid-2005.

caldwell idaho: The Snake River of Idaho - 04/26/07 06:04 AM
 
Idaho is well know for it's rivers, lakes and streams and one of the most well known Idaho waterways is the Snake River.  I have heard many descriptions of the Snake River over my lifetime as it runs across the bottom of the state and right near my hometown of Caldwell Idaho

The Snake River … (12 comments)

caldwell idaho: The College of Idaho >> An Idaho "Gem" - 04/22/07 07:24 AM

caldwell idaho: Caldwell Idaho - 04/20/07 03:19 AM
