Chili feed kicks off Christmas season at Shelley

November 24, 2012

SHELLEY – With an escort of fire trucks, Santa arrived in Shelley on the back of one of the trucks with lights blazing and sirens sounding.
It was the eighth annual chili feed and light ceremony on Friday at the Dawn Lloyd City Park in Shelley.
Berta Dargie, Bubba Ricker, Chuck Lloyd, Jackie Hanson, Micks and Warner were the chili makers. Three or four gallons of each chili were available for all takers. The chili eaters voted to determine the winning entry.
This year, of the six chili makers, three were returning champions, said organizer Diane Mickelsen.

Koree and Darren Thompson, owners of All-States Distributing in Riverside, take great pride in the fact that their small business has always been family-owned and operated and is still going strong after 41 years in Bingham County.
The business, originally called Quad-States Distributing, was started by Darren's father, Lyle Thompson, in 1971. He started working out of his home, manufacturing and selling propane-burning welding torches.

The Clint Lane family needs financial assistance.
Lane, age 33, was injured Aug. 6 as he was attempting to load a crane onto a flatbed at a construction site. The boom fell, pinning Lane to the trailer. The construction site was at Fastenal which is close to Wal-Mart in Blackfoot.
Last Friday, Lane was discharged from the Craig Hospital in Englewood, Colo., after four longs months in the staff's ministering care, to begin the transition home to Firth.
A benefit dinner is scheduled from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 1, at the Senior Cititzens' Center in Blackfoot.
