SHELLEY â€“ The North Bingham County District Library in Shelley is asking voters to approve a bond to purchase a larger facility that has more space for people and library materials.
The library is looking to purchase and move into the former BMC West building at the north end of Shelley.
Storyteller Sesha Hammond was reading the book, â€śPet Show,â€ť by Ezra jack Keats, to preschoolers.
Discussion about the book centered on vocabulary.
â€śWere there words in this book that are not generally in your conversation with your child?â€ť Hammond asked the preschoolersâ€™ parents.
AMMON â€“ With a 2A state tournament volleyball title in sight the Firth Cougars took to the Hillcrest court on Saturday morning looking to complete that goal.
At the end of a very emotional day on the court, Firth came up just short of that goal as they brought home the second place trophy after losing to Nampa Christian in both the semi-final and championship games.
â€śIâ€™m not going to lie, whenever you come to state without a single player who has ever been to state it can be emotionally draining,â€ť Firth head coach Carla Reeves said. â€śThat was my one concern coming in and I have been pretty hard on them all season long trying to get them mentally and physically prepared. They are a strong conditioned team so they had that covered I think what got us was the emotional side of things but they never lost face out there, they never gave up.â€ť
POCATELLO â€“ Snake Riverâ€™s Caleb Phillips and Pablo Vega recorded back-to-back sacks to preserve the Panthersâ€™ 28-24 win against Sugar-Salem on Saturday in the first round of the 3A high school football playoffs.
Trailing by four, Sugar-Salem threatened a comeback facing a 3rd-and-12 at the Snake River 45 with 3:50 left in the fourth quarter at Holt Arena. Phillips dropped Sugar-Salem quarterback Teancum Gibson on third down for a 5-yard loss. And after Sugar-Salem burned its final timeout, Vega, a portly defensive lineman, tracked down a scrambling Gibson from behind, dove and knicked his heel for the fourth-down sack.
â€śOur defense had to come up big there to get a stop,â€ť Snake River coach Jeff Dalley said. â€śWe hadnâ€™t stopped them all night. They drove the ball on us and scored. But the defense bowed their necks and came up with a stop.â€ť
POCATELLO â€” Dominant. That is the word that best describes the performance that the Shelley Russet football squad had on Saturday evening against a woefully overmatched Buhl opponent in their 60-7 opening round win over the Indians.
"We're a pretty aggressive football team and it paid off tonight," Shelley head coach Travis Hobson said. "Honestly on film Buhl looked real good so we were able to show the kids some film and show them some good things that they could do now as coaches we saw some things that we thought that we could exploit. I thought that Buhl was aggressive to a point where we could screen and I didn't think that they could cover our deep ball and in their cover three I felt that we could hit them up the sea
RIGBY â€“ The Blackfoot Broncos closed out their regular season with a 41-6 road win at a snowy Rigby High School on Friday night.
Playing in a heavy snowfall all evening long the Broncos built a 28 point halftime advantage and then coasted, or sledded home to finish the regular season at 8-1.
Blackfoot got on the board on just the second play from scrimmage when Alonzo Ramos hit a streaking Matt Peterson in the middle of the field for a 60 yard touchdown strike.
â€śItâ€™s hard to come out and play in these conditions but you just have to fight off the cold and try hard to focus and execute as best as possible,â€ť Ramos said. â€śItâ€™s really hard to pass the ball on a night like tonight.â€ť
BLACKFOOT â€” A flock of pink flamingoes, whether real or fake, is not something you see in people's yards in Blackfoot every day. However, if pink flamingoes happen to mysteriously appear in your yard within the next two week, it's likely that you've been "flocked" as part of a fundraiser for the Community Dinner Table (CDT).
Ronda Cheatham, food distribution coordinator for the CDT, said, the "You've Been Flocked" fundraiser is all in fun and is to help raise money for the CDT Christmas boxes, (food-filled boxes) that are distributed to families in need prior to Christmas.
