People enjoying a day at the Eastern Idaho State fair, an old drugstore with various commodities stacked floor to ceiling, an ice cream parlor- all part of Bingham County's rich history.

SHELLEY â€” The Shelley Russets rallied for three runs in the bottom of the sixth inning as they evened the season series with the Rigby Trojans with a 3-2 High Country Conference victory at Shelley High School on Wednesday afternoon.
"I'm very happy with the win and very happy with the way that the team came back from yesterday and did the things that we talked about," Shelley head coach Yence Mora said. "We've talked about three things. Get on base, get the base runner over and then get the base runner home and we did that today which was the key."
