BLACKFOOT â€” Dignitaries from the Blackfoot Chamber of Commerce joined those from the Bank of Commerce to celebrate the opening of the bank's new facility on Tuesday.
"We've had a great relationship with Blackfoot and Bingham County," said Tom Romrell, president and CEO of the Bank of Commerce. "Our business has grown so much that we could not service the demand at our old building. We needed to enlarge our parking area and our consumer area."
The new building at 624 Jensen Grove Drive does that.
ABERDEEN â€” On Monday Arthur Vailas, president of Idaho State University, praised the people of Aberdeen for what they and their forebears have built.
Speaking at the annual Aberdeen Chamber of Commerce dinner, Vailas said, "education is what provided opportunity. Education is the greatest gift that you can give humanity."

"The greatest thing is where people are able to work as a collective," he said. "When you do, you will advance your mission of good will.
