Cold shooting night dooms Broncos

December 13, 2012

BLACKFOOT — The Blackfoot Broncos hosted the Hillcrest Knights on the basketball court Wednesday evening looking to even the season series on their home court. Unfortunately, the Knights were not cooperating in that plan as they turned in a big second quarter to take a double-digit lead that they never relinquished in the 64-45 downing of the Broncos.
"Basketball is a game of runs," Blackfoot head coach Dan Hale said. "When you don't stop their run and then don't go on a run of your own it makes it very difficult to win basketball games. Hillcrest are a good team though. You can't take anything away from them."

More questions for D55 trustees

The case of documents signed by trustees of the Blackfoot School District and former superintendent Scott Crane begs the question, of course, what's next?
According to Idaho Code 67-2347 (1), "If an action …occurs at any meeting which fails to comply with the provisions of sections 67-2340 through 67-2346, Idaho Code, such action shall be null and void."
On Monday, the district admitted to violating the Idaho Open Meetings Law.
Interim Superintendent Chad Struhs said the board does realize the contract is now void. The trustees are working on deciding what to do, he said.
