In an effort to help ease evening congestion in downtown Blackfoot, the Blackfoot City Council unanimously approved a recommendation to make the alley between Broadway and Ash - running from Pacific to Bridge Street - a one-way street at its meeting on Tuesday.
Blackfoot Mayor Mike Virtue explained that a traffic problem is created in the area when evening activities are going on, particularly dance lessons at Downtown Dance studio.
Tuesday marked the second day of the Christmas Extravaganza at the museum. Wednesday, the museum will be open from 4 - 8 p.m., complete with a performances by Hovia Edwards at 5 p.m. and Angela Carlson at 6 p.m.
BLACKFOOT â€” For a quarter the Blackfoot boys basketball team hung with 5A Madison, but things quickly fell apart in the remaining three quarters.
A 17-2 third quarter run by the Bobcats was the final nail in the Broncos coffin as Madison cruised to a 63-36 victory Tuesday night at Blackfoot High School.
"Usually my kids just play hard from start to finish, but not tonight," Blackfoot head coach Dan Hale said. "They were content to just concede the game and try and keep it under 30."
