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.
â€śWhat Iâ€™m emphasizing here today is crime prevention for senior citizens and how to get rid of unused meds,â€ť said Blackfoot Police Detective Paul Hardwicke.
MERIDIAN â€“ 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.
â€śIt was hard to push it as much as we wanted to against their zone with them getting back we didnâ€™t get quite as many easy looks as I would have liked to have gotten,â€ť Shelley head coach Dave Hadley said. â€śFirst 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 wasnâ€™t great but we got a win and I guess thatâ€™s what matters now.â€ť
MERIDIAN â€“ The Snake River Panthers took center stage as they opened the 2013 3A state basketball championship tournament with a 1:15 game with the Buhl Indians. 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.
