BLACKFOOT â€” Hundreds of people attended the eighth annual Stone Soup contest, with all the proceeds benefiting the Southeastern Idaho Community Action Agency.
Fourteen businesses or organizations entered the soup contest. Those testing and judging the soups had a wide variety to choose from including chicken noodle, Italian chicken chili and coconut curry chickpea chowder.
Rupe's Burgers placed first with its cream of asparagus soup; Bingham Memorial Hospital took second place for its spinach and artichoke soup; and ReMax Preferred Properties won third place with its taco soup.
BLACKFOOT â€” There was a lot riding on the Blackfoot Lady Bronco soccer squads game with Madison on Tuesday afternoon.
A win would all but guarantee a second seed and more importantly a first round bye in the upcoming district tournament.
On top of that was the fact that Blackfoot was celebrating the contributions of 5 seniors and nobody wants to leave the home field as a senior with a loss.
Blackfoot responded like champions on Tuesday, sweeping aside the pressure to perform and a caution to the wind second half effort by the Lady Cats' for a 2-1 victory.
