BLACKFOOT â€“Â Moo-Donna has her new home. The 2011 EISF mascot stretches about six feet from ear to ear and now looks down from her post atop the billboard near the east entrance of the fairgrounds.
Chad Hammond with I.E. Productions said the Eastern Idaho State Fair's three-dimensional billboards are the only of their kind appearing in the state. There are two similar EISF billboards on I-15 and another large Moo-Donna will be placed on the back of the grandstands this year.
"I think it is the coolest welcome to the fair we've ever had," said Hammond.
The EISF runs Sept 3-10.
BLACKFOOT â€” The community is invited to a meet and greet Thursday with the new administration at Blackfoot High School. The reception will be Thursday from 7-8:30 p.m. at the Blackfoot Performing Arts Center.
SHELLEY â€” Despite a sometimes rocky life, a former Shelley single mother has returned with a photo exhibit which testifies of Jesus Christ.
"The message is the hope that Christ lives," said Debbie Evans, who owns the exhibit at 152 South State. "Life hasn't gone completely smoothly since I came home from my mission, yet I've never been alone."
There is no admission charge for the exhibit, which is open from noon to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday. A DVD presentation with inspirational music plays in the background. It will open through Sept. 3.
