Publisher’s Letter

Publisher's Letter 1

Boise Lifestyle Magazine is celebrating our first anniversary. What an incredible journey!
We began mailing our magazine directly to 13,000 local households (the majority of Eagle, North Meridian, and North and East Boise neighborhoods), and 400 doctors/dentists/hospitals and retail outlets in February 2015. It is truly hard to believe that this time has passed so quickly. However, when I think of what we’ve covered and how much fun we’ve had – it makes me proud to be a part of a new, community focused, quality magazine.

When asked about prostate cancer screening or treatment, physicians, public health policymakers, patients and patients’ loved ones often have firm opinions or utter confusion.
Different professional medical organizations and federal government policy boards are all over the map on outlining their positions on this controversial topic.
Prostate screening began in the early 1990s when the PSA test began being used. PSA stands for prostate-specific antigen, and this chemical is leaked into the blood stream by normal prostate cells and prostate cancer cells.

Hungry travelers dined at a Basque boardinghouse in Nampa, Idaho, called the Modern Hotel in the 1930s, which was operated by Regina and Juan Bastida.

Entertaining With Your Shoes Off Doesn’t Equal The Barefoot Contessa

Entertaining With Your Shoes Off Doesn't Equal The Barefoot Contessa

Okay, let’s talk entertaining, but I am not Martha Stewart. I envy the Barefoot Contessa, I’m overwhelmed by Rachel Ray, LOVE Emeril, and want to have my very own Crate & Barrel/Pottery Barn/Williams Sonoma combination of the world’s biggest pantry! I need personal in-home cooking lessons, a maid, two dishwashers, a large patio stocked with wonderful furniture, a personal trainer, and Nate Berkus to redecorate my home. There. That’s not asking too much is it?
