POCATELLO â€” A fifth district tournament crown was on the line at Highland High School Tuesday evening as the Snake River Lady Panthers and the Marsh Valley Lady Eagles squared off for the rubber match of their season series.
During the regular season, the team split with one another and Tuesday nights contest was as competitive as the regular season was but in the end, Marsh Valley was a shade better on Tuesday as they took the title away from Snake River with a 49-36 victory.
BLACKFOOT â€” Attorneys for two former Blackfoot High School athletes facing misdemeanor charges have filed motions for change of venue, but will have to wait until next week to have their motions heard before the court. Both cases are scheduled to be tried in Bingham County in March.
BLACKFOOT â€“ Lois Bowyer celebrated her 97th birthday Tuesday. She lives at the Gables in Blackfoot along with 15 other residents.
â€śIâ€™m the oldest one here,â€ť she confided.
Bowyerâ€™s secret for a long life is â€śalways exercise and keep going.â€ť She did add that salsa is good on everything.
â€śI developed my delight in (mild) salsa because there were four Spanish cafes where we lived in Southern California,â€ť she said. â€śI eat salsa with every meal, and then walk three to seven times around the Gables after each meal.â€ť
Bowyer sets a sprightly pace when walking.
