And away we go! As most of you football crazed fans in Bingham County are aware of, the state football playoffs begin tonight! The top ranked and undefeated Firth Cougars will open Bingham County's run at the state tournament when they kick off against Valley at Idaho State's Holt Arena at 8:15 p.m.
Aberdeen will play at Declo on Friday evening while Blackfoot will be closing out their regular season at Rigby before they open the 4A state playoffs next week at home against the second place team out of district three which is currently Bishop Kelly.
On Saturday, the 3A schools kick into action with defending 3A state champion Snake River taking on Sugar-Salem at 4 and the current second ranked team in the state, Shelley taking on Buhl immediately following. Both of those games will be in Holt Arena.
As with seasons past, I will now gaze into my crystal ball and make my bold and fearless predictions as to what will unfold over this glorious football weekend.
BLACKFOOT â€” October is recognized as "National Long-Term Care Residents' Rights Month." To celebrate, representatives from the Area Agency on Aging spoke with about 25 residents at the Willows on Tuesday.
The theme of this year's celebration is "My Voice, My Vote, My Right" with the goal of educating the community about residents' rights, including the right to vote and participate in the political process.
BLACKFOOT â€” What was once a giant patch of weeds outside the Blackfoot Animal Shelter has been transformed into a well manicured green lawn with a manmade brook leading into a scenic pond.
Nearly two months in the works, the landscaping project was a joint effort between Premier Technology and the City of Blackfoot. Christi Kotter, a controller at Premier Technology who helped on the project, said, "Doug Sayer [Premier Technology president] was working on his own property here and saw a need to help the neighbor [Blackfoot Animal Clinic] next door."
