BLACKFOOT â€” Crop Production Services (CPS) has completed a two-year project in support of public education. Each year, CPS chooses a service project to benefit the community.
In 2010, the CPS crew first started spraying weeds for the Idaho Science and Technology Charter School (ISTCS) construction site.
The CPS crew continued to kill weeds and hay to make a playground and planted grass in a three acre lot for that playground.
The Rockford brand of CPS donated the chemical and the application of specially blended grass seed needed to plant the lot.

THOMAS â€” The Snake River School District received a grade of A plus in its audit report Wednesday night.
Auditor Tim Folke with Folke CPA in Payette presented the audit report to the trustees.
"When doing a school audit, auditors look at two sets of figures," Folke said. Under compliance, an auditor looks to see all covenants are met and the school has maintained its testing. Folke normally looks for the school district's compliance in June.
