Individual liberties need to be restored, Republican presidential hopeful Ron Paul told hundreds during today's town hall meeting in Twin Falls. “We have to recommit ourselves to what a free country is all about,” Paul said. Audience members cheered as the Texas congressman took the stage at Twin Falls High School's Roper Auditorium. Paul said if he's elected, he'd cut the federal budget by $1 trillion during his first year as president. Paul joined fellow GOP nomination hopefuls Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum in scheduling Idaho campaign stops this week, in preparation of the state's March 6 GOP caucus. Paul's other talking points included abolishing income tax, ending foreign wars and the U.S. regulation on drugs/Julie Wooton, Twin Falls Times-News. More here.

Question: Do you plan to attend the rallies for Ron Paul either in Moscow or Spokane Friday?

Freeman schools two hours late, Liberty closed

The hopes of students in the Freeman area for a snow day have not been answered. Freeman schools are running two hours late this morning. Preschool and skill center have been cancelled, however. The Liberty School District announced yesterday that it would also be running two hours late, but said at 6:30 a.m. this morning that classes would be cancelled instead.

As of last reports Highway 27 was still open, but everyone drive carefully out there. Some roads are downright nasty.

School closures

Some school districts are already announcing that classes will be cancelled tomorrow because of the expected frigid weather and snow. You can check online for up to date school closure information. I’m sure students in the Liberty and Freeman School Districts are hoping for a second snow day to make their Thanksgiving holiday extra long.
