BLACKFOOTâ€”A passion for baking, a handful of blue ribbons from the Eastern Idaho State Fair and a boyfriend who encouraged her to "follow her dreams" has inspired Lisa Jennings of Blackfoot to start her own home-based baking business. She appropriately calls herself (and the business) "Cookie Momster."
Jennings, a graduate of Blackfoot High School, said she has loved baking every since she took home-ec in high school over 20 years ago. She also learned a lot from her mother, Rita Jennings, who is a cook for the Blackfoot School District.
IONA â€” The Blackfoot Lady Broncos kicked off 4A District 5/6 play Thursday night with a 53-45 win over Bonneville at Bonneville High School.
Ella Alvarez scored a team-high 20 points after being held in check for the last three games.
MorningRose Tobey was held in check from the field by Bonneville, but she made her presence known in other ways.
Tobey had 10 assist and nine rebounds in the game.
"We are just about where we want to be," Blackfoot head coach Merle Smith said. "We have been playing well lately and when we can get our first league win on the road, that is big for us."
BLACKFOOT â€” Doug Coffman's earliest memories of ice fishing go back nearly five decades.
"When I was about 12 years old, my maternal grandfather (Lionel Harris) asked if I wanted to go ice fishing with him and I jumped at the chance," said Coffman, a Blackfoot businessman.
At that time, they went to Fish Creek Reservoir northwest of Craters of the Moon.
"The fishing was great," Coffman said. "It was hot."
In Eastern Idaho ice fishermen can catch trout, Kokanee salmon, yellow perch, bluegill and an occasional bass depending upon the waters.
FIRTH â€” While the temperature outside of Firth High School hovers around zero, the shooting on the floor was equally as cold as the Lady Cougar took on northern Bingham County rival Shelley Thursday night.
