National Park Service grants will help preserve two Idaho sites that remind us of a difficult time in our nation's history. Secretary of Interior Ken Salazar has announced two grants totaling more than $300,000 for preservation and interpretive projects at World War II-era Japanese-American internment sites.
Monday was a Day of Remembrance for those interned and those Japanese-Americans who fought in WWII, even while some of their families were interned. Men, women, and children, mostly U.S. citizens not guilty of any crime, were held in internment camps for more than three years.
Some Idaho car dealerships that sell Japanese made cars are bracing for a potentially difficult summer. That's because Toyota announced last week there could be a shortage of their cars being sent to dealerships.
