BLACKFOOT â€” The Blackfoot High School varsity basketball coach placed on leave last month was reinstated Monday. The coach was placed on leave in December pending a criminal investigation involving former student athletes.
According to a press release issued by the Blackfoot School District Monday, "the administrative leave from coaching duties of Blackfoot High School Boysâ€™ Basketball Head Varsity Coach Jonathan Packer has been rescinded effective immediately." The action was taken following investigations by the district and the Bingham County Prosecutor's Office.
BLACKFOOT â€” The Sea Dog and his bride are back home from Mexico. Again. But this time they intend to stay.
Dwain and Pauline Sweet of Blackfoot have been spending part of each year in the tiny fishing village of Kino Bay, Mexico, since 1989.
Because of advancing age and the fact their children want them home, the Sweets sold their park model trailer and their boat and are determined to stay close to the hometown they have claimed since 1964.
â€śWhen we went down last year, we had an idea this was going to be our last trip,â€ť Dwain said as he and Pauline sat in their dining room last week.
