POCATELLO â€“ The Blackfoot Broncos faced a desperate, gambling, unconventional Middleton team on Friday night in the class 4A State Football Championship game and in the end; the Broncos proved that they were indeed the number one team in the state as they captured their third state title in the last five years with a 42-24 victory.
â€śWe knew that it was going to be a tough game,â€ť Blackfoot head coach Stan Buck said. â€śThat was a good, good game and Iâ€™m just real happy for the kids that they were able to get it done. Now we can relax, rest and enjoy the winter sports season.â€ť

BLACKFOOT â€” In October, Ashfork Sanitation received the bid to haul solid waste from Bingham County's transfer station to Bannock County Landfill. Ashfork's bid was $7.60 per ton.
Thursday, Richard Stokes, owner of Ashfork Sanitation, and the Bingham County commissioners agreed to a "hold harmless clause."
"That's legalese for everyone walks away clean," said Mark Cornelison, Civil Deputy Prosecuting Attorney for Bingham County.
The two issues of disagreement were the unevenness of the loads (weight consistency) and the loading itself.
