Ronald E. Wolfley at age 48 passed away suddenly at home on Monday, Nov. 14, 2011.
Ron was preceded in death by his loving grandparents, Arcado (Archie) Montez and Helen Villasenor who raised him and he so lovingly adored; Ronâ€™s daughter, Casey Mulkey, passed from leukemia; his uncle, Terry Last and brother, Scotty Scott.
Ron was the beloved husband of Lousie Wolfley. Ron loved to take his wife camping and on four-wheeler rides in the mountains. He also enjoyed doing whatever it took to get a rise out of Louiseâ€¦just poking fun for a little amusement. This was quite entertaining at times.
BLACKFOOT – Lt. Paul Newbold is counting down the hours to the execution of Paul Ezra Rhoades on Friday. Lt. Newbold was just 27 years old and had been a detective for less than one year when Rhoades' reign of terror in Bingham County began in 1987.
BLACKFOOT â€” As they talked about Friday's scheduled execution of their son's killer on Wednesday, Junior and Julie Haddon often became emotional.
Paul Ezra Rhoades murdered 20-year-old Nolan Haddon at an Idaho Falls convenience store on March 16, 1987. If the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals doesn't intervene, as Rhoades' attorneys have asked it to do, he will be executed at 8 a.m. on Friday.
"No, it don't," Junior Haddon said of Rhoades' death bringing closure. "It don't close anything. It just finalizes it."
IDAHO FALLS â€” Early foul trouble spelled trouble for the Blackfoot Lady Broncos as they fell to 5A Idaho Falls 51-33 on Wednesday evening.
"We have both of our guards pick up those three early fouls and it really changed what we wanted to do," Blackfoot head coach Merle Smith said. "It did give us a chance to get other girls on our bench into the game which gave them all some valuable experience."
Blackfoot and Idaho Falls traded baskets throughout the first quarter with Kylie Coby and Boo Burnett scoring 4 points each in the opening stanza as the Lady Broncos took a 10-8 lead.
