BLACKFOOT â€” Three people were injured in a three-vehicle accident Monday morning on Interstate 15 just south of Blackfoot.
The accident occurred at 10:45 a.m. at milepost 92 in the northbound lanes of travel on Interstate 15. A small Jeep SUV experiencing mechanical problems was traveling approximately 20-25 miles per hour in the slow lane of travel and was preparing to exit at Blackfoot, Idaho State Police Sgt. Robert Rausch said. The vehicle was being followed by an Idaho Department of Transportation pickup truck with flashing lights.
PINGREE â€”Â Riding, roping, calving, cutting, branding and building fence â€“â€“ you name it â€” and the Dalley girls Naomi, 12; Quinci 10, and Saydi, 6 can do it.
Chris and Kimmel Dalley own land and cattle in Pingree and Northern Nevada but they donâ€™t need to hire help because itâ€™s a family business and everyone, regardless of age, or gender helps.
Kendall Keller, Farm Bureau regional manager and family friend, says â€śthese three girls are better cowboys than most grown men.â€ť
Thatâ€™s a compliment the girls and their parents will tell you is true.
BLACKFOOT â€“ The beautification project at the Bingham Crisis Center was started on Saturday with the help of scout Brad Carter as he started the hands-on work of his Eagle Scout project Saturday. Â

â€śThere are really seven projects,â€ť Carter said.
These projects include:
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â fixing the sidewalk,
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â removing the maple tree that caused the sidewalk to buckle,
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â preparing the flowers beds for new bushes and laying down river rock,
