A recall election for Blackfoot School District Zone 1 trustee Peter Lipovac is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 28.
Only people living in the Blackfoot School District Zone 1 will be allowed to vote in this recall election.

BLACKFOOT â€” The Blackfoot Lady Broncos picked up their first win of the season on Tuesday afternoon as they blanked the Jerome Lady Tigers 3-0.
Once again the Lady Broncos were aided in their cause by the talented right foot of Cassandra Clarke as the fleet footed junior recorded her second straight hat trick with all three goals in the victory.
"I hate to say it but Cassandra broke another record today by being the first Blackfoot girl to have back-to-back hat tricks," Blackfoot head coach Scott Stufflebeam said.
BLACKFOOT â€” The Blackfoot Broncos made their home debut of the 2012 season on Tuesday afternoon as they tangled with a feisty Jerome club.

"Jerome are a good team no ifs, ands or buts," Blackfoot head coach Liam Pope said. "We knew that they were going to be a good squad coming in though."
