BLACKFOOT â€” Buddy Bowman sat on a couch in the small office at the Blackfoot municipal airport, talking with his hands as he explained how he had flown the F-104 jet airplane as a test pilot.
"How did you ...?" asked Kerry Requa several different times. The airport manager and Bowman talked for a long time about things only pilots understand.
Bowman, a retired lieutenant colonel, is a native of Riverside. He attended Snake River schools through his junior year, then transferred to Blackfoot High School.
FIRTH â€” A new trustee was appointed in Firth, the board was reorganized and meeting dates were set during the July school board meeting Thursday.
April Christensen was the only person to submit an application for the open trustee position. She was appointed trustee for Zone 5 (the Firth town site) in the Firth School District and will be sworn into office during the board's August meeting.
