Boise No. 9 For Practicing Yoga

In what top-10 ranking does Boise join nine other much-larger cities from across the nation, from the San Francisco metro area (No. 1) to Seattle-Tacoma (2),  Philadelphia (3), New York City and Washington D.C. (tied for 4), Baltimore (6), Boston (7), Portland (8) and San Diego (tied for 9th)? The answer: Yoga. Forbes Magazine reported Friday on the “Top 10 Cities for Yoga in the U.S.,” and while the S.F. Bay Area was tops with its population 59 percent more likely to practice yoga than the general U.S. population, Boise made the list, tied for ninth place with San Diego, with the residents of both rated as 21 percent more likely/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise.

Question: Do you practice yoga? And/or: Why do you think Boise ranks so high for practicing yoga?

Wolf ‘Emergency’ Tops Society ‘11 List

Gov. Butch Otter cried wolf by declaring the predators a “disaster emergency” in Idaho last year, according to The Wildlife Society, the international organization of wildlife professionals. The group's newsletter editors ranked that story No. 1 in their list of Top 10 Wildlife News Stories for 2011. Other top stories include white-nose syndrome in bats plus stories on wolves, pronghorns and my column in The Spokesman-Review about a Wenatchee-area trail-cam that caught eight cougars in one photo. (Unfortunately, the Wildlife Society linked to a watered-down rewrite by somebody else)/Rich Landers, SR Outdoors. More here.

Question: Is there any wildlife story brewing now in Idaho that could make The Wildlife Society's Top 10 list in 2012?
