BLACKFOOT â€” Planning and Zoning (P&Z) commissioners worked on completing the final details on the Bingham County Proposed Zoning Ordinance last Wednesday.
They discussed three points. These included commercial wind turbines, transmission lines and animal units.
BLACKFOOT â€“ Â A little over a week ago, Mountain View Middle School teacher Bekki Mangum and Blackfoot artist Willie Preacher were touring the 9/11 Memorial in New York City.
â€śItâ€™s a trip I would never have gone on without Bekki,â€ť Preacher said.
Mangum said the adventure started last May when Preacher won two airline tickets to anywhere in the United States. After some discussion, the couple settled on a trip to the Memorial.
The Memorial is a national tribute of remembrance and honor to the 2,983 people killed in the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and Feb. 26, 1993.
BLACKFOOT â€” The community of Blackfoot is hosting a welcome home celebration for the 116th Cavalry Brigade Combat Team of the Idaho National Guard from 6-8 p.m. Saturday at the parking lot between Wooton Way and Royal Street. There will be a bonfire and free chili, cookies and beverages for all soldiers, their families and community members.
Blackfoot Mayor Mike Virtue said the event will be very informal to allow the returned soldiers to spend time with family and friends without obligation.
BLACKFOOT â€” The Blackfoot City Council passed an employee policy at their meeting Tuesday defining employee recreation discounts at the Blackfoot Pool and Golf Course.
Councilman Rich Woodfin said city employees have been receiving discounts for several years but there is no policy defining what the discount is and who is eligible to receive the discounts.
"It's been brought to my attention from a number of people," Woodfin said. "Really there is no policy at this time."
