article post online, the next update on Twitter, the next news alert on my phone. I’m not alone in this frenzied intake of information. According to a 2010 survey, 92 percent of Americans check out multiple news outlets each day. With never-ending updates streaming from our laptops, radios and smartphones, a 900-word newspaper article doesn’t carry the same weight as it did when it was our primary news source. Sometimes I daydream about being a reporter in the ‘60s. I picture myself on a beach somewhere, poring over a story on my typewriter, not worrying about checking or updating Twitter. (I guess the beach imagery is Hunter S. Thompson’s fault from “The Rum Diary.”) Then I remember how much I rely on Google, and suddenly 2013 doesn’t seem so bad. I just need to keep a couple things in mind:

It can be by Holly Beech painful to cut firstname.lastname@example.org a story down © 2013 MERIDIAN PRESS by 100 words after spending so much time interviewing people, going to events and collecting bits of information. But I have to remember how I act as a reader, not how I want things to be as a writer. As a reader, I tend to start skimming paragraphs so I can move on to the next thing. There’s always that next thing — the next

U.S. Senate tries again to move anti-violence bill
(AP) Senate Democrats, bolstered by Republican support, on Monday launched a new attempt to broaden a law protecting women from domestic abuse by expanding its provisions to cover gays, lesbians and Native Americans. The legislation, co-sponsored by Idaho Sen. Mike Crapo, to renew the Violence Against Women Act appeared on a smooth path toward passage in the Senate, possibly by the end of this week. Monday’s vote to make the bill the next order of business was 85-8. Senate passage would send the bill to the House. Advocates hope that Republicans won’t repeat their resistance last year to the Senate approach.

State Police investigates Idaho Correctional Center
(AP) The Idaho State Police has launched an investigation into staffing levels at the state’s largest private prison after state officials said they found discrepancies in the prison’s monthly reports. The Nashville, Tenn.-based Corrections Corporation of America has run the Idaho Correctional Center under a contract with the state for a decade. The contract details the way CCA must run the prison. The minimum staffing requirements have also been spelled out in a legal settlement that CCA reached with the American Civil Liberties Union-Idaho after inmates sued in federal court.

New lifestyle center attracts companies to Meridian
n what some would say is a weak economy, Meridian’s newest retail complex, The Village, has already leased all its available space. Three-quarters of the space still under construction has been pre-leased, by Holly Beech firstname.lastname@example.org the developer’s presi© 2013 Meridian Press dent said. The Village, a “lifestyle” center, is meant to be place where you can shop, eat out, go to concerts, watch movies, exercise, play in the park — all in the same 100-acre area. By October, more restaurants, highend retailers, a theater, a fountain, a small park and a seasonal ice-skating rink will join Big Al’s, Gap Factory Outlet, Chick-Fil-A and other retailers that have already opened. “I think what we’re trying to create actually is something that doesn’t exist in the state of Idaho,” Fred Bruning, president of The Village’s developer CenterCal, said. Idaho’s retail technology, he said, is about a generation old. Shoppers in 2013 want an experience, not just a product. They want to dine outside, they want to hear live music, they want to do fun things with their families. “It’s designed to be much more than just a shopping center,” he said. Plus, about one-third of The Village’s tenants will be new to Idaho. Meridian — home to the state’s busiest intersection on Eagle Road and Fairview Avenue — has been a great fit for the $300 million endeavor. “The center of gravity for the whole Treasure Valley is our site, which kind of shows how people have shifted over the last generation farther to the west,” Aaric Bryan/MP Bruning said. “... We’re very well situated Heather Norris, left, and Carla Dennis look at shirts while shopping at Gap Factory Outlet in The Village to serve the whole Treasure Valley for the next generation, and it well may be on Eagle Road in Meridian. that in 30 years somebody’s doing something like we’re doing out in Nampa or ing said.

I think it’s a fun thing.” She does think The Village could have a negative impact on nearby cities’ downtown shopping, however. “I still love going downtown, but the big shops are just not there.” Rob Leavitt posted to Meridian Press’ Facebook: “I like options. That said, I think that downtown Meridian should be a good alternative. I hope that after the realignment, the city takes a hard look at development/re-development of downtown.”

ISU-Meridian’s innovation attracts national attention I
daho State University-Meridian students are catching local and national attention by providing free or discounted health services to the community. The local campus has three clinics — dental, speech and language, and counseling — and hosts free health screenings about six times a year. The need for affordable care is great, especially in Idaho, a state with the second-to-lowest primary care physician ratio per capita, ISU-Meridian Health Science Center Dean of Academics Bessie by Holly Beech email@example.com Katsilometes said. Since March 2010, the screenings © 2013 MERIDIAN PRESS have helped more than 500 people. Most of them didn’t have a primary care physician, so ISU connected them with community partners like Terry Reilly Health Services for referral and treatment, Katsilometes said. “Now you can have health fairs, but this is different. This is truly and integrated, interdisciplinary approach,” she said. Other counties, seeing the program’s value to both students and community members, are interested in replicating it, she said. ISU representatives presented at the National Association of Local Boards of Health and has held health summits in Ada and Canyon counties.

The SBOE awarded nine Idaho educators for their use of technology in ways that improve student learning. Four teachers earned a financial award between $300 and $1,000 for future use in their classroom and a virtual field trip for students through the Idaho Education Network. Kim Miller of Star Elementary School won best lesson plan, Miller and Marita Diffenbaugh, both of Star Elementary, won best unit plan and Amber McVey, Pepper Ridge Elementary School, won best practices in visual arts. The award-winning plans are available to teachers through
Schoolnet, the statewide instructional management system. “I am so proud of our talented teachers who work hard every day to find new ways to engage students in their learning and raise academic achievement,” Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna said. Luna sent letters to the teachers congratulating them on their recognition as well. In addition, Dale Garrard of Centennial High School was one of five other educators recognized with an Idaho Education Network Talk Award, as most valuable player.

I contribute to sports medicine at Meridian High School, and have also participated in student government and National Honor Society. Outside of school, I sit on the YMCA Homecourt Advisory Board and participate in club lacrosse. What is your favorite high school memory? “My junior year, the varsity football team took a trip to Pocatello for the state playoffs. We took two charter buses and sat through a four-hour trip. Even though we lost, it was an experience with a group of people that I will hold near and dear for a long time.”
What was your biggest challenge so far, in or outside high school? “I am a Type 1 diabetic, and that is a challenge every day. Fortunately I manage it well and am perfectly healthy.” If you could give one piece of advice to someone your age, what would it be? “Keep yourself motivated and always do your best.

is antics bring life to the wrestling team, laughter to spectators, and eyebrow-raising gestures from opponents who are not aware of his condition. When he wins a match, he’ll spit water into the air, à la Hunter Hearst Helmsley, the professional wrestler known as Triple H. Sometimes, he will extend his arms like a bird’s wingspan, a pose mimicking WWE wrestler Scott “Raven” Levy. And as Mountain View’s Collin Sale found out on Jan. 30, sometimes he will give a stare during starting lineups. “I do that to almost all my opponents,” Chris Carp says. “It’s like, ‘Somebody’s gonna geeeeeeet it.’” It could be perceived as arrogant, but that would be misreading Carp, an 18-year-old Meridian senior with autism. His love for wrestling dates back to his early years in his native Alaska, and it carries over to Meridian High, where he is playfully called “The Bear Wrestler” by his peers. Don’t be fooled by the antics, Carp is just having fun and means no disrespect. “Sometimes he just doesn’t know any different. Some of that is the autism,” his father, Dennis, says. “He’s just proud of what he does, but I don’t think he’s over-proud.”
‘HE’S REALLY INSPIRATIONAL’ Proud can be attributed to the elder Carp, who’s watched his son overcome obstacles and challenges. There were a lot of painful moments through the years as Chris struggled with razzing from classmates and sometimes believed nobody liked him. “It’s very remarkable what he’s gone through,” says Dennis, who found out his son was autistic roughly 16 years ago. The journey is admired by teammates Harley DiLulo and Brandon Wells, whose practice-room battles have helped Carp progress into the fifth-ranked wrestler among 152-pound 5A competitors, according to Idahowrestlingnews.com.
The progression was evident nine days ago: Carp used his single-leg attacks and “barb wire” moves to earn a 17-3 major decision against Sale, a reigning state qualifier. “It’s cool to see those kind of matches, beating those tough guys,” said Wells, a 160-pound junior. “He’s really inspirational to us,” says DiLulo, a 182-pound junior. Carp, who went 1-2 at last summer’s NHSCA nationals in Virginia Beach (Va.), has improved immensely in the past year. He never misses a practice and has the biggest heart on the team, according to Meridian coach Brad Muri. “He’s nails,” Muri says. “If he goes out and wrestles to his potential, he definitely should be a district and state placer. “It would be awesome. He’s such a good kid.”
‘IT’S IN HIS HEART’ When Carp comes home from practice, he talks about wrestling until the time he goes to bed. His room is littered with posters of WrestleMania and David Batista, WWE belts and all of his medals and plaques. He talks about going to college — and one of his coveted universities shares the same block M letter seen inside Meridian High’s gymnasium. “I’m really looking to talk to someone — maybe BSU, Oregon State and Michigan,” Carp says. His father says the sport has helped Carp stay out of trouble, concentrate on his schoolwork and maintain his grades in an effort to continue competing on the mats. “I honestly think that wrestling is a good way to get away from some of his anger. He can be up there and put it all on the line,” Dennis Carp says. “I think it just helped him direct some of his fears. “He’ll probably be involved in wrestling forever. It’s in heart.”
Mykaela Richards (18 points)and Ebony Norman (11 rebounds), Holly Blades (11 points) and Chelsea Hawley (10 points) helped the Meridian girls basketball team clinch a 5A state tournament berth with a 4940 district win over Centennial on Tuesday.
McKensey Herron (15 points, 10 rebounds), Destiny Slocum (16 points) and Kayley Hastings (15 points) guided Mountain View to a state-qualifying 59-42 win over Meridian on Saturday. The Mavericks play Capital for the 5A District III title tonight.
Austin Hall had 14 points and 10 rebounds and John Sherle added 16 points as Rocky Mountain handed Borah its first defeat, 46-44, on Feb. 1.

Welcome to the first installment of the Meridian Police Department’s column for the Meridian Press. We are very excited to connect with you through the pages of this publication. Every month we will talk about what’s happening in our great community and teach you useful safety tips. We hope this column will help you understand what it is we do. But nothing will help you understand our jobs better than our annual Public Safety Academy. The 10-week academy is conducted each spring and is a combined effort by police and fire officials to better educate our citizens on what they really do. Believe it or not, it’s not like what you see on TV or in the movies. During the program, participants learn about the structure and day-to-day operations of our departments. This academy is not just a lecture based program. Participants experience emergency vehicle operations, some crime scene operations and how traffic stops are conducted, along with a variety of tasks performed by firefighters. This will be the ninth academy we have put on, and they continue to get great reviews from our alumni. It’s a great opportunity for you to get to know the police officers and firefighters who serve our community on a much more personal level, so I encourage you to take advantage. Our spring Public Safety Academy begins April 4 and goes through June 6. Classes are from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Thursday evenings, with four half-day Saturdays. If you would like to apply to attend this session, please contact Melissa Delaney at 846-7360 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. As the deputy chief, I get asked a lot of safety questions, but two I get the most often are, “Should I carry pepper spray?” and “Should I buy and carry a gun?” Personal safety really is unique to each person, which is why it is personal. In other words, each case is different because no two people are the same. The No. 1 key to staying safe, whether you are a private citizen or a police officer, is the same — you have to be aware of your surroundings. If we want to avoid conflict on a consistent basis, we all need to be aware of what is going on around us, especially when in unfamiliar surroundings. If something seems out of place or you just don’t feel right about something, your awareness level should rise. If you feel the need to have an officer respond to evaluate the situation, do it! If it turns out to be nothing, great. If it turns out your instincts were right, you will be even happier you called. The most important thing to remember is: Better safe than sorry.
Hello, Meridian! The Meridian Chamber is so excited to be able to team with the Meridian Press. When several of the MP team members came to share the vision of a Meridian paper with us, we couldn’t help but want to be a part of this exciting new endeavor. As I watched the Super Bowl last Sunday — as I’m sure many of you did — I was thinking about how much football and being successful in business are alike. Even if you’re not a huge football fan, you can’t help but appreciate all the preparation that goes into preseason, the regular season, the playoffs and, if you’re prepared (and lucky) then the Super Bowl. The preparation the final two teams went through is the reason they were there. Each individual trained separately, and then the individuals came together with expert coaching to make sure they were prepared. This is their work — and it’s not a lot different than ours. We at the Chamber, and you in your business, need to train as individuals. We need to be able to read a balance sheet or make colds calls. Whatever your job is, you have studied and trained for it. You have also practiced with your team — your co-workers or employees. The old saying of “the definition of success is preparation meets opportunity” is true in football, and it’s certainly true in business. The mission of the Meridian Chamber of Commerce is “to serve, strengthen and promote the Meridian business community.” That means part of what we do is help you prepare and train so that when opportunity comes along, you and your team are equipped. We offer a variety of training opportunities, and when you are prepared, we offer many opportunities to meet that next customer or client. Check out all the events listed at www.meridianchamber.org. Some of the exciting events you will find are our twice-monthly luncheons the first and third Tuesday of the month, First Friday (an early morning networking event), a variety of Lunch and Learns and many other events scheduled to meet the needs of your business. We also encourage Chamber members and civic groups to post their events on our website. We are so excited about all the great things that have taken place at the Meridian Chamber this past year. It has definitely been a year of preparation. We have worked diligently to meet the needs of the members. You told us you wanted a Chamber focused on the business of helping business, and that’s what we’ve done. If your business is not a member, check us out. We hope our preparation has prepared us for the opportunity of helping you with your business.
Tracy Basterrechea is the Meridian deputy chief of police.
Anne Little Roberts is the executive director of the Meridian Chamber of Commerce.

t the State of the City address Wednesday, Mayor Tammy de Weerd gave the Legacy Award to two community members who helped create a memorial for fallen Meridian veterans. Mountain View High School freshman John Skogsberg and World War II Navy veteran John Burns were instrumental in making the Rock of Honor at Julius M. Kleiner Memorial Park a reality. Skogsberg, working on his Eagle Scout project, and Rock of Honor board members spent hundreds of hours searching for veterans’ names for the monument. They gathby Holly Beech ered about 60 names of veterans who email@example.com died in combat or as a result of war and © 2013 MERIDIAN PRESS who had lived in Meridian at some point in their lives. “I know a lot of people who have been in war, and I salute to all veterans who’ve been in war and sacrificed so much,” Skogsberg said. Burns, with the support of Mayor de Weerd, formed the Rock of Honor board to respond to the lack of military monuments in the city. “I’m from the D.C. area, so we have a lot of monuments,” he said. Skogsberg joined in the effort after seeing a Rock of Honor advertisement at the movie theater. “I’m so honored to get this award,” he said. “Just a year ago this was all just, I walked into a board room asking for an Eagle project, and I got this, and it was so great for me to be a part of.”

Financial Peace University was founded by Dave Ramsey, a syndicated radio and talk show host and bestselling author of “Financial Peace” and “The Total Money Makeover.” Businesses can host their own session or join a class at Zions Bank, 6176 N. Eagle Road. The first class, “Super Saving,” starts Feb. 12 at 7 p.m. and is free for anyone who wants to learn more about Financial Peace University. Tuition for the full course is $99 per household with scholarships available for single parents and those with military spouses serving overseas. For more information or to register, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit endprogram.com. Businesses interested in hosting a class can contact Don Milne at 801-844-7977.
