, The Associated Press

BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Somewhere in Boise, two 500-year-old skeletons discovered in Idaho's high desert plains are stored in a secure place as three Native American tribes try to claim the remains and anthropologists lament a lost research opportunity.

U.S. officials won't say where the bones of the young adult and a child are being kept as the U.S. Bureau of Land Management assesses the claims by the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes in eastern Idaho, Shoshone-Paiute Tribes in southern Idaho and northern Nevada and the Nez Perce Tribe in northern Idaho.

'Canada does not treat us right': Trump threatens new tax

The Canadian Press

U.S. President Donald Trump is complaining about Canadian trade practices while threatening some as-yet-undefined international tax that has revived fears he might be contemplating new American import penalties.

He made the remarks at the White House on Monday while unveiling a long-awaited infrastructure plan. During a lengthy session with reporters, he complained about countries considered allies of the U.S.

"Canada does not treat us right in terms of the farming and the crossing the borders," Trump said.

Opinion Cases like Colten Boushie's are handled unjustly, and there's nothing wrong with saying that: Neil Macdonald

MALONE — Franklin County has registered 91 laboratory-confirmed cases of influenza so far in the 2017-18 flu season.

This represents a noticeable increase from last year; during the same time period for the 2016-17 flu season, there were 78 lab-confirmed cases.

County Public Health Director Kathleen Strack recommended that county residents continue to get vaccinations, noting that influenza activity is up across the state.

“Data suggests that the influenza vaccine continues to offer protections and can reduce the severity of illness for those who get the flu,” wrote Strack in an email to The Telegram on Friday.
