BLACKFOOT â€” Members of the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve committee for Eastern Idaho honored numerous area businesses on Thursday.
Two of the top honors went to Premier Technology and to the City of Pocatello Police Department. Both received recognition for advancing to the semifinals for the Department of Defense's Freedom Award.
BLACKFOOT â€” All eighth-grader Annette Thelin could say about her new school building was that "it's amazing" and "it's going to rock."
Thelin, a student at Idaho Science and Technology Charter School, got to look inside the new building Thursday during an open house. She, along with several of her classmates and future ISTCS students and their parents, toured the facility, which was constructed over the past year behind the modular buildings the school once called home.
