SHELLEY â€” Local heroesâ€”the 24 volunteers who make up the Shelley fire districtâ€”want your vote.
The volunteer firemen are asking voters in the Shelley-Firth Fire District to approve the $1.7 million bond so a new fire station can be built in Shelley and to renovate the existing Firth fire station. This bond issue is on the Primary Election ballot. The election is set for Tuesday, May 15.

BLACKFOOT â€” The Blackfoot Broncos kept their season alive on Saturday as they dispatched with a pesky Rigby squad 5-4 in the play in game for the High Country Conference tournament which begins today.
