BLACKFOOTâ€”Disappointment did not cross Stephanie Palmer's mind when she didn't win one of three vans given away by the National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association (NMEDA) which gave away three 2012 wheelchair-accessible vehicles last month. Instead Palmer expressed her amazement and gratitude, "I was truly blown away by the support I received." With over 22,000 votes, Palmer came in 14th place and was in the top 3 percent to be considered for the vehicle.
BLACKFOOTâ€”Chaune Bumgarner has an eye for art and the endless capacity to love children.

BLACKFOOT â€” The Blackfoot Broncos and the Bonneville Bees combined for 46 runs, 49 hits and well over five hours of baseball on Tuesday evening and at the end of the marathon day on the diamond, the two teams split the double header, with Bonneville winning 9-7 in game one and Blackfoot rebounding for a 19-11 win in the nightcap.
"Whenever you see Bonneville on the schedule it just sort of amps everything up," Blackfoot head coach Jeff Katseanes said. "To pick up a split is huge. Both teams are very good and I have to say, I like the way that our team are playing."
