Page 2 Wednesday, Ryan Zollmal/for Sheriff Dear Editor, I am writing in sup- port of Ryan Zollman for Sheriff of Adams County. I have known Ryan for several years, and dur- ing this time I have been impressed with his posi- tive attitude and his moral character. He is an outstanding leader and has the support of the staff at the Adams County Sheriffs Office. Ryan is well *versed in Idaho statutes and understands the require- ments to maintain a jail facility. Ryan has also made it clear that it will be one of his goals to build strong working relationships with neigh- boring counties. To meet the goals the sheriff sets for his/her office and the needs of the county it is imperative to maintain a good working relation- ship with the surround- ing counties• I've had the pleasure of working with Ryan on numerous occasions and he has always shown a desire to make Adams and the surrounding counties a better place to live. I spoke with Ryan about starting a local task force to concentrate on the cattle thefts that many counties in this area are experiencing. Ryan understands the importance of the local cattle rancher, and is excited for the opportu- nity to be part of protect- ing the livelihoods of the cattlemen and women in Adams and the sur- rounding counties. I am pleased to sup- port Ryan in his bid for election as Adams County Sheriff. Ryan will be an excellent choice for Sheriff and I am certain he will prove to the resi- dents of Adams County that he is the best choice for the Adams County Sheriffs Office• Mat Toas Wah3to Cot seg cne Don Allen for Sheriff Dear Editor, It seems to me that there is lots of talk and few facts going around about the sheriffs race. It has been suggested that Don Allen lacks the qualifications to lead the sheriffs office. Ironically, Don has clone nothing but lead his entire life. He began with BFI In the waste management industry as a driver and worked his way up to become operations man- ager. He moved on as general manager of USA Waste before becoming a regional and division- al vice president of this same company. While he was an executive at USA Waste, they purchased Waste Management, Inc. and became the largest company in the waste management Industry. He was then asked to help another company, Waste Connections, Inc., grow their revenue as a regional vice president, which he did through acquiring 48 companies and increasing sales and city/private contracts. Don has also owned and successfully run three separate businesses, selling each at a profit. Why would these be important qualities for our sheriff to have? Being sheriff is more than simply catching the bad guys or hand- ing out speeding tickets. Those things are impor- tant, but being sheriff is also about doing the right things consistently. In our county, especially at times like these, those right things include: being a community advocate, creating part- nerships with business- es to help increase reve- nues, working with other county and local depart- ments to find solutions and keeping the lines of communication open, creating and maintain- ing a sound fiscal budget for the sheriffs depart- ment---operating in the black and not the red. It is this type of creative thinking that separates Don from the rest of the candidates• Don't get me wrong, being a strong law enforcement official is important, and keeping our communities safe is Don's number one pri- ority. To do this, Don has tapped Rick Wiley as his candidate for under sheriff. Rick is a 40+ year veteran of law enforcement and his cre- dentials speak for them- selves• I have no problem with any of the other candidates for sheriff. However, some of them suggest that simply hav- ing law enforcement experience is enough to qualify them for the job. Perhaps 10 years ago that would have been the case. Today we need Matthew Faulks announces for Senate, District 9 Matthew Faulks, a fourth-generation Idahoan raised in Parma, has announced he will run for the Idaho Senate in District 9. "I have lived and worked in this part of Idaho for most of my life," said Faulks. "My plan is to be a senator who listens to and acts on behalf of the People." Faulks is a former prosecutor and currently a practicing attorney in Payette. He previously worked for a decade in banking with West One Bank, U.S. Bank and Farm Credit Services. He is a life member of the NRA. Faulks currently serves as a Republican precinct committeeman and has been active in the party throughout his life. 'l'he economy is my in-st focus. Job growth through tax incentives along with an emphasis on working with the needs of our communities make up my top priorities. "Limited government and local control are my core philosophy. We need to work to minimize government intrusion into our lives, whether state or federal," said Faulks. Legislative District 9 takes in Payette, Washington and Adams counties along with the northern portion of Canyon County, including Parma. Now on Sale!

I have no doubt that, with Don Allen and Rick Wiley, our streets and families will be safe. I also have no doubt that what Don and Rick bring to the table with their other qualifications makes them the best choice to lead the sheriffs office. FAd.tval. No, I didn't pay him to say this.

"Every state with a sales tax also has a use tax, to make sure that all sales are taxed equally and fairly•" TiUey said it's the Tax Commission's job to administer current Idaho tax law as written. The law does not exempt Internet purchases from tax," he said, adding, "When Idaho citizens make untaxed purchases online, it creates an uneven playing field for local businesses that have to charge tax on their sales." There are several ways Idahoans can pay use by Leslie Jones--Idaho State Tax Commission A lot has been said recently about whether Internet sales' should be taxed. But many Idaho consumers who shop online may not know that under Idaho law they already owe use tax, according to the Idaho State Tax Commission. "Use tax" is a companion to the sales tax, which is normally paid at the point of purchase. Use tax applies when someone buys items on the Interact, by phone, or through marl-order catalogs, and the seller doesn't collect sales tax on the purchase. Unless a purchase is specifically exempt by law, it must be taxed. "The use tax has been tax on their Internet and other untaxed purchases: On their annual income tax return (Line 28 of the 2011 Form 40 • Using a Form 850-U (Self-Assessed Use Tax Worksheet and Return) • Paying it in person at a Tax Commission office Individuals can find out more about use tax and how to pay it on the Tax Commission's website, (click on Individuals, then Use Tax] or go directly to our Use Tax page: http_ ://tax. 1018.cfm.
