We've got a lot for you to read on the upcoming presidential inauguration.
Did you know that more than 100 officials from 58 federal, state and local agencies will oversee what is likely the largest security operation in inaugural history?
And there are some cool historical stories. From a newspaper story from 1933: "Franklin D. Roosevelt ascended to the Presidency today with the stringent banking situation foremost in his planning, forthwith declared "this nation asks for action and action now," and proceeded to act accordingly."
You can find these stories and more on the page. And I love the photo gallery of inaugurations from the past (it includes a photo of President Lincoln giving his address)
If you're attending the inauguration, send us your photos and stories that we can publish on the website. All submissions become the property of the Idaho Statesman.

Have you noticed our new feature on the homepage highlighting food & drink, movies and music? Take a minute to check it out — we wanted to make it easier for you to get to movie showtimes, movie and restaurant reviews, upcoming concerts and more.
We’ve also added on our homepage another way for you to get to our site search. On the bottom of the homepage, you’ll see the “Find more” box. If you use one of the pulldown options, it’ll help you narrow your search down. The fastest way to find local stories, for instance, is to use the pulldown menu option for "Recent News."
