  3. Its great to hear that there people who value the good deed of somebody and to people that in spite of all the trials on earth they can still manage to do good and continue doing it without expecting something in return. Congratulations to the woman of the year.

  4. That is very kind of you to write this share for us, thanks a lot.

  8. I just could not depart your web site prior to suggesting that I extremely loved the standard info a person supply to your guests? Is going to be back continuously to check up on new posts low cost car insurance

  9. I really like this website , and hope you will write more ,thanks a lot for your information.

  10. There are some great ideas here. I must redesign my blog sometime. I am going to start from scratch this time I think.

  11. Responding to some previous posts: Although it may be frustrating to see mainly local ladies…. It’s up to each of us in our communities to take time to nominate the amazing women we’re surrounded by. This list by no means sums up our states talented professional women. Take a moment today and look around …then take time today to nominate someone for next years award! Congrats to each and ever one of the winners!

  12. Congratulations to all, including Irene Woodworth who so deserves this for her many years of community work.

  13. I see you made a long trip to Moscow for one woman. Evidently the female groups north of McCall
    reside in a wasteland with no means of communication. Hoo ray for the Southwest!!!

  14. I concur with ‘Anony-Mouse’ above – apparently there are no worthy women, (other than Carol and Robin) north of Hailey. I hardly agree with that!

  15. You should rename this award the “Western Idaho Women of The Year”. There’s only a handful outside of the Treasure Valley and none east of Twin Falls. I’d hardly consider this an award representing the whole state, just the Great State of Ada.
