BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Six same-sex couples in northern Idaho who received marriage licenses before state officials say a federal court made such unions legal are being given the opportunity for a do-over. Officials are offering a marriage license application that has the unusual option of selecting already married. The couples say they'd be lying and could face legal penalties if they put down anything but married.

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Authorities are looking for a teen who wanted a date with Destiny and hoped to get it by spray-painting a prom proposal on a cliffside. The Idaho Statesman reports that the message "Destiny, Prom?" was painted in large pink and blue letters on the side of the Black Cliffs east of Boise. The Ada County sheriff's office is searching for the culprit.

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Water managers say they are negotiating to prevent mass water shutoffs from Jerome to Idaho Falls even though a final deal could result in long-term farming changes for southern Idaho irrigators. The Capital Press reports that groundwater irrigators have fallen short in providing enough water to two canal companies.
