This blog contains history, photos, etc. related to Idaho from the late 1800's/early 1900's. My mother, Brenda Steunenberg Richards, was born in ID. Much of it pertains to the assassination of my great grandfather, Gov. Frank Steunenberg, the trial of Bill Haywood & grew out of the 100 year commemorations of those events. Along the way I toss in a bit of the Wild West, old guns, radios, military, etc. Your comments are welcomed. If using my images, please just ASK. Thank you.

Sometime last night (no, I didn't stay up for the event, shoot off fireworks or have a toast), the blog had its 100,000th visitor since 2/10/2008. Now, I am not so big headed as to think it really means much of anything or compares to winning a gold medal at the Olympics. The majority of those hits are probably from me and people wandering aimlessly lost through cyberspace and landing here by mistake—but it is a milestone nonetheless. If maybe 10%, 5% or even 1% were actually where they wanted to be or 1/2% or 1/4% or even less stop by on a regular basis—I am elated. For a blog with a very narrow focus, pretty specific to one state and one family—not too shabby.
Thank you all.
Thanks Tara. Happy to have you stopping by now and then. John

Dear John: I would imagine a good number
of those hits were intentional because the history you provide your visitors is
important information and gleaned from sources not usually in the mainstream
historical database. I certainly have appreciated your website and blog and am
very grateful to you for all the effort you've put into it. Thanks so much!!
