Seniors get tips at awareness fair

March 1, 2013

On Thursday afternoon, The Willows Assisted Living & Memory Care in Blackfoot hosted its first Senior Awareness Day.
A variety of services were available for exploration. These included hair care for mature hair and information about adult cradle cap, elder care--estate and life care planning for seniors--and denture care.
Information about home health and hospice services, pharmacy services and diabetic foot care was also available.
“What I’m emphasizing here today is crime prevention for senior citizens and how to get rid of unused meds,” said Blackfoot Police Detective Paul Hardwicke.

Russets run past Pirates 60-44

March 1, 2013

MERIDIAN – Three different Russets cracked double-digit scoring as Shelley cruised into the 3A semi finals with a 60-44 win over Payette on Thursday evening.
Playing the last of the four opening round games the Russets took note of the earlier upset of conference rival Sugar-Salem as they came out quick on the Pirates, leading to a 15-9 first quarter lead.
“It was hard to push it as much as we wanted to against their zone with them getting back we didn’t get quite as many easy looks as I would have liked to have gotten,” Shelley head coach Dave Hadley said. “First game of the state tournament for all of these kids except for McKay, McKay got some time as a freshman, and for the first time on a pretty big stage you have to expect some nerves. Overall execution wasn’t great but we got a win and I guess that’s what matters now.”

Riding a nine game winning streak Snake River looked to run it to ten and that is exactly what they did, although it was a little tighter than anticipated, as they held off a furious Buhl comeback attempt before escaping with a 38-37 victory.
