Carole King ranch has $16 million tag

STANLEY, Idaho – Songwriter and singer Carole King has put her 128-acre central Idaho ranch near Stanley back on the market with a reduced asking price of $16 million.

King put the Robinson Bar Ranch – with a 7,300-square-foot lodge, private residence, caretaker’s home, recording studio and horse barns – on the market in 2006 for $19 million. The ranch was taken off because of problems with a bridge that has since been repaired.

FAA narrows airport site list

HAILEY, Idaho – The Federal Aviation Administration has eliminated one of three proposed sites as a replacement for Friedman Memorial Airport in the central Idaho city of Hailey.

The FAA announced Thursday that a site east of state Highway 75 and north of U.S. Highway 20 has been discarded.

Plans for the airport call for an all-weather landing system, something Friedman lacks, causing flights to the resort area to be diverted to Twin Falls or Boise.
