A note from the editor Feb. 11

This past week, through our digital-first model, development and financial aid made several appearances in our coverage, with freelance writer Brooke Strickland sharing news in the financial aid sector of a grant program through Wells Fargo to help local businesses and Chobani increasing its scholarship fund for University of Idaho students. For development, reporter Catie Clark shares a look ahead and a look back for the once Karcher Mall site in Nampa. Also, freelance writer Sharon Fisher dove deeply into information about various master planned communities in a piece first published in our recent edition of Square Feet.

Outside of those topics, you will see an update about possible data centers coming to Idaho (by Sharon) an expert take on Idaho’s retail environment (Catie), Idaho joining other states in a lawsuit aiming to block the federal vaccine mandate for health care workers (also by Catie) and numerous Biz ‘Bites’ about even more sectors.  

This coming week is promising to be a busy one. 

Whether you see it online or in print first, you can expect to see more news from industries like construction and development and health care, and you can anticipate new news about the Legislature, whether in articles about pending legislation or in our recap of our Feb. 10 Breakfast Series event — Business Views on Legislation.  

With that, yours truly must get back to editing or writing up our news; I’m excited for what we have in coming up; and, I, and everyone at Idaho Business Review, thank you for reading.
