Group cleans up BLM land near Groveland

March 24, 2014

Twenty-five volunteers spent four hours on Sunday cleaning up a two-acre area at the end of McDonaldville Road.
"This is all BLM land," said Jerry Wallace, Sunday's clean-up organizer. "It's close to town so a lot of people use it.
"People just trash it," he said. "It's mostly used for target practice so there is glass everywhere."
Wallace posted this project on Facebook. Twenty-five people responded and showed up to help. People came from as far as St. Anthony, Rexburg and Idaho Falls.

Aberdeen man finishes mission in Laos

March 24, 2014

ABERDEEN — At the end of February, Leland Sorensen resumed a journey which had begun on a hilltop in Laos on March 17, 1969.
That's the day Sorensen, a U.S. Air Force pararescueman, tried to rescue F-105 pilot 1st Lt. David Dinan, who had bailed out of his aircraft after attacking an enemy position perhaps as little as 20 miles away.
Sorensen had found the pilot's body but was unable to bring it home.
Last year, after a search of records turned up his name as the one who had seen the pilot last, military officials invited Sorensen to aid in another search.
