SHELLEY â€“ Last Thursday, Shelley school trustees met in a work session to discuss long range plans and the upcoming school year.
Trustees approved the purchase of 28.65 acres south to Baseline Road and west for $350,000.
â€śItâ€™s for future use,â€ť said Superintendent Bryan Jolley.
Possible use of the land could be an addition to present facilities or to build a new school or just as an investment.
â€śThe district didnâ€™t own property when we needed to build Riverside,â€ť Jolley said. â€śIt took eight months to secure that property.
FIRTH â€“ The Little Buckaroo had a record number of entrants this yearâ€”359.
Friday night featured glorious weather. Sheep riders and calf riders had difficulty staying aboard.
Ribbon tie contestant Brianne Bingham was so excited when she saw the calf riding. Her mother assured her she needed to grow a little bit so she could ride a sheep before taking on a calf.
