ABERDEEN â€” The Firth Cougar basketball squad entered the Aberdeen Tiger den on Tuesday night, looking for a season sweep of their Bingham County brethren. At the end of a rapidly played contest, that is exactly what they got, as they won the cat fight with a decisive 58-37 victory.

BLACKFOOT â€” The Shoshone-Bannock Corrections facility now has a library of more than 800 books thanks to a local Boy Scout.
Macalister Loos, 15, is a sophomore at Blackfoot High School and a member of Boy Scout Troop 239. His father, Mark Loos, is a corrections officer at the Shoshone-Bannock Corrections facility and suggested Macalister conduct a book drive to supplement the book selection at the jail, where inmates had fewer than 100 books to choose from.
