Mother Nature offered mild springlike temperatures for the opening day of the Blackfoot Golf Course and driving range Thursday. This year, for the first time, the City of Blackfoot will manage the "Smooth Swing Driving Range," privately owned by Bill and Rita Pope of Blackfoot.
Blackfoot Golf Pro Mike Dayley said this is a good move for the city and golfers.
"The city is leasing the driving range from the Popes'," Dayley said. "This is something the city has been working on for awhile and the timing was right for the Popes."

BLACKFOOT â€” The Blackfoot Bronco baseball squad opened their 2013 season on Thursday afternoon and after a shaky start, the men in green pulled it all together in a 7-6 hard fought victory over 5A Idaho Falls.
"Like I told the boys, first game of the season and we saw a lot of good things and we also saw a lot of things that we can work to improve on," Blackfoot head coach Kenny Dahle said. "Overall I'm proud of the boys though. Idaho Falls are a good, young, well coached team and its always big to pick up a win against them."
