BLACKFOOT â€“ The service counter at the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) in Blackfoot will not look the same come Monday morning. Postal Clerk Kim Bergeson retired Friday after 35 years of service.
â€śI started here in 1978 as a clerk and ended as a clerk,â€ť Bergeson said.
There have been a lot of changes in the post office over those 35 years.
â€śIn 1978, mail was weighed on a scale and then you had to look up the rate and the zone on a chart,â€ť he said. â€śAll the stamps were licked.
â€śNow all the stamps are self-adhesive and there are forever stamps.
BLACKFOOT â€” You'll want to make plans to watch or set your DVRs as five siblings from Blackfoot's Kesler family go head to head against the Ianitello family from Woodstock, Ga., in front of a live studio audience on Family Feud Monday at 2:30 p.m on KPVI (Channel 6). It could be a nail-biter as it is revealed whether or not the Keslers win big money (up to $100,000) and a brand new car, along with some serious bragging rights.
THOMAS â€” One consistent highlight of the 3A fifth district volleyball season has been the long time rivalry between Bear Lake and Snake River.
