SHELLEY â€” Even though there was a slight chill outside, there was a heated game when the Shelley Russets baseball team hosted the Idaho Falls Tigers Saturday morning.
Shelley got the better end of a ten run rule win as the Russets walked off with the 15-5 win, before the bottom of the sixth inning was finished.
BLACKFOOT â€” Coming off of an eight day lay off due to Spring Break the Blackfoot Broncos returned to the diamond on Saturday afternoon for a double dip against 5A Skyline.
At the end of the day, the two teams split the twin bill with Blackfoot winning game one 3-1 and Skyline downing the Broncos 10-3 in the nightcap.
Blackfoot police are asking the public to call their department with information regarding BB shots that were fired into vehicle windows over the past couple of weeks. Call 785-1235.
The damage has been done in the dark hours of night, Lt. Scott Gay said. The windows damaged on vehicles were on the side of the vehicle facing the road.
Two juveniles have also been arrested and charged with gang- related graffiti that appeared on buildings in Blackfoot Wednesday night and Thursday morning, Gay said. Fifteen or 16 incidents have been reported.
The judge in the case of former Blackfoot High School janitor Joshua Michael Jenkins retained jurisdiction for 365 days to give Jenkins an opportunity to "get you the help you need,on Friday." Senior Judge Peter D. McDermott told Jenkins, age 37, from Chubbuck, he must apply to a substance abuse or mental health program.
"We are offering you services and structure," Judge McDermott said.
"Probation is not appropriate in this case," the judge said. "If you succeed in completing this program, you can be brought back here to be put on probation."
