A number of Bonner County community members have received very unsettling anti-Semitic robocalls lately. The Bonner County Human Rights Task Force is aware of the calls and recommends anyone who receives a call to notify police. In this way the calls can be tracked. BCHRTF has contacted Southern Poverty Law Center, a U.S. non-profit organization that monitors the activities of domestic hate groups and other extremists. The BCHRTF will also continue to track calls when they are reported to us. Another potential line of defense for consumers is to block the calls from the number listed. Unfortunately this will not always work as numbers can be “masked” to look different. Please contact your phone service for details on how to block numbers. This is a time for all Bonner County citizens to be united and vigilant against hate speech and/or actions.

While we have you ...
... if you appreciate that access to the news, opinion, humor, entertainment and cultural reporting in the Sandpoint Reader is freely available in our print newspaper as well as here on our website, we have a favor to ask. The Reader is locally owned and free of the large corporate, big-money influence that affects so much of the media today. We're supported entirely by our valued advertisers and readers. We're committed to continued free access to our paper and our website here with NO PAYWALL - period. But of course, it does cost money to produce the Reader. If you're a reader who appreciates the value of an independent, local news source, we hope you'll consider a voluntary contribution. You can help support the Reader for as little as $1.
