BURLEY, Idaho (AP) — A southern Idaho man police say used his iPhone to try to record a 14-year-old girl in the shower has been charged with felony video voyeurism.

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho Superintendent of Public Instruction Sherri Ybarra says she wants local school officials to decide how money should be spent in the classroom. During her first budget presentation to the Legislature, Ybarra said she hadn't yet determined exactly how funds for some of her biggest policy initiatives would be spent. Instead, Ybarra said, she wanted to figure out those details once she saw just how much money the Joint Finance-Appropriations Committee budgets for each line item.

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Former Idaho Gov. Cecil Andrus says a scaled-back version of a central Idaho wilderness bill being put together by U.S. Rep. Mike Simpson doesn't offer enough protection. The Idaho Statesman reports Andrus made the comments Wednesday during a luncheon at the Andrus Center for Public Policy. Andrus, a Democrat, supported an earlier version of Republican Simpson's Central Idaho Economic Development and Recreation Act but doesn't like the smaller version that shrinks the proposed wilderness area by about 37,000 acres to 295,000 acres.
