BLACKFOOT â€” On Tuesday members of the Blackfoot City Council approved discussions with two groups which want to use city property.
Mayor Mike Virtue noted that an organization out of Utah wants to use Jensen Grove Lake for a regional wakeboard competition on July 28. He also noted that another organization would like to use the old BMX track property for ATV training at least one time this summer.
"This sounds like a win-win for the city," said councilman Rich Woodfin.
"It's another way to get people off the freeway and see our wonderful growth," councilman Butch Hulse said in agreement.
THOMAS â€” The Snake River Panther baseball squad closed out the regular home schedule on Tuesday afternoon as they made short work of conference rival Marsh Valley with a five inning, 14-4 romp over the Eagles.
