Radio Talk Show Host Steph Lucas provided numerous examples of leftist media bias and detailed how conservative talk radio is pushing back on false narratives and propaganda during her speech at the Pocatello-Chubbuck Observer hosted Liberty Dinner held on Saturday, October 16, in Pocatello. Her detailed comments illustrated to the audience the methods used by the so-called, “legacy media” to misdirect the public in favor of a progressive, leftist, agenda. Those in attendance were able to see first-hand how her knowledge of history and her aggressive interview skills allow her to identify and challenge those seeking to advance statements designed to obfuscate people rather than enlighten them. Steph can be heard on KID NewsRadio 92.1 every weekday from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Following the dinner, John Crowder, Publisher of the Pocatello-Chubbuck Observer announced that next month’s speaker will be Candidate for Idaho’s 2nd Congressional District Bryan Smith, who will be discussing his run to replace current Congressman Mike Simpson.

I have lived in Pocatello my entire life, almost 60 years. During that time, I have developed some amazing friendships with good and caring people of integrity. One of those friendships is with Clayton Armstrong, who is currently running for the Pocatello-Chubbuck SD-25 School Board.
Over the years, I’ve been able to see the strong character traits that Clayton possesses which have allowed him to be a successful teacher, coach, small business owner, father, and friend.
Clayton is a man who will dedicate himself, 100%, to improve himself, and to help his fellow man and his community. His career speaks to this dedication. He was a dedicated wrestler through high school and college and worked hard to become one of Idaho’s best. Taking up running, he dedicated himself to working out every day. When he became a teacher and coach, what stood out was his commitment to his profession and to his students. His dedication to his students has changed many lives in Pocatello and Chubbuck for the better.
As a young man, Clayton was taught the value of hard work. Early in his teaching career, he started a successful landscaping business. Owning this business allowed him to hire many students, helping them also incorporate the value of working hard into their lives.
Clayton is a patriot. He loves his country, his community, and he is a man of faith.
Clayton’s entire life has been spent improving himself and helping others. In my experience, it is rare to find someone like Clayton who, at a time of life when he could be sitting back and enjoying the fruits of his labor, has once again stepped forward to serve his community. His honest desire to help others be their best will be a tremendous asset to the Pocatello-Chubbuck School Board.
I am proud to support my friend, Clayton Armstrong, for Pocatello-Chubbuck School Board. I can promise you that, if you elect him, you will not be disappointed.

(City of Pocatello Press Release, October 15, 2021)
The City of Pocatello water system recently received nitrate results for one of their wells that was above allowable limits. We want to ensure that our residents know what happened, what you should do, and what the City of Pocatello did to correct this situation.
The City of Pocatello Water Department routinely monitors for the presence of drinking water contaminants. On October 15, 2021, we received notice that the result of sample collected from Well #2 on October 14, 2021 showed nitrate levels of 11.69 mg/L. The standard, or maximum contaminant level (MCL), for nitrate is 10 mg/L.
Drinking water provided to residents within the distribution system is a mixture of water from various sources. After we received notice of the results, nitrate levels from this mixture and adjacent to the source were sampled at 5.04 mg/L, which is well within standards and is safe for consumption.
What has been done?
Upon notification of exceedance of the standard on October 14, 2021, a confirmation sample was taken and Well #2 was inactivated. Well #2 no longer provides water to the distribution system. Alternate water sources will continue to provide safe drinking water to residents for the foreseeable future.
What should residents do?
Because the well that exceeded the MCL was inactivated, there is nothing residents need to do. You do not need to seek alternative water or take other corrective actions. However, if they have specific health concerns, they should consult their doctor.
When Nitrates Exceed 10 mg/L:
Infants below the age of six months who drink water containing nitrate in excess of the MCL could become seriously ill and, if untreated, may die. Symptoms include shortness of breath and blue baby syndrome. Blue baby syndrome is indicated by blueness of the skin. Symptoms in infants can develop rapidly, with health deteriorating over a period of days. If symptoms occur, seek medical attention immediately.
For more information, please contact the Water Superintendent’s Office at 208-234-6174.
*Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.*
This notice is being sent to you by the City of Pocatello. State Water System ID#: ID6030043.
