When it comes to leading the City of Blackfoot, mayoral candidates Paul Loomis and Dan Cravens are in agreement with each other on many issues - especially their passion for Blackfoot. However, the city budget is the one issue that riled both men at a mayoral forum Monday evening - moderated by Greg Austin of the Fraternal Order of Police - Snake River Lodge and Ben Hirschi - president of the Local Firefighters 445.
THOMAS â€” About two weeks ago, the Snake River School/Community Library received a 3D printer. The printer uses plastic tubing to form a 3D project.
Students in the drafting class at Snake River High School have been busy designing projects to explore its capabilities.
The first project that SR drafting students designed was glass that measured about three-eighths inch tall. The hollow glass has a bottom and could actually hold a small amount of liquid.
"Designing a glass that was hollow was difficult," said Sherrilynn Bair, Snake River School/Community Library Director.
POCATELLO â€” All season long the Shelley Russets have played solid defense, not turned the ball over and most importantly limited penalties.
In Saturday night's 3A state championship game in Holt Arena against Fruitland the Russets continued to play good defense, but the team was flagged for 14 penalties and turned the ball over three times on consecutive possessions spanning two quarters.
But in the end and just like they had done all season the defense kept Fruitland out of the end zone in the fourth quarter and Shelley won their second consecutive state championship with a 17-14 victory.
OGDEN, Utah -- When Idaho State fans considered Saturdayâ€™s game with Weber State, everything seemed to point to a Bengal victory. The Wildcats had lost 10 games in a row, many by sizeable margins.
ISU, meanwhile, had been competitive in most of its last five games, all losses.
SHELLEY â€” 3-0.
That is the record the Shelley Russets have against the Fruitland Grizzlies in their last three meeting in the 3A state championship game.
Today in Holt Arena the two teams will meet for the fourth time since 2007 with the Russets looking to make it four straight over the Grizzlies.

POCATELLO â€” During his playing days at Aberdeen High School Trevor Spence was a big fish in a small pond for the 2A Tigers.
As his senior year wound down Spence did not receive a whole lot of attention from college recruiters, but one school showed interest in the linebacker's talents and that was the school from just a 40 minute drive away, Idaho State.
