BLACKFOOT â€” It's not every day that a school principal sits on top of a bike ramp for the sole purpose of letting a stunt rider attempt to jump over his head in front of the entire student body! That's just what Mountain View Middle School principal Todd Lauritsen did as part of a special assembly rewarding the students for a successful fundraiser selling Paul Deen cookie dough.
BLACKFOOT â€” Members of the Greater Blackfoot Chamber of Commerce honored 10 members of law enforcement, the fire service and the National Guard on Wednesday.
"This is always a special time for our Chamber," said president Shirley Brumfield as she introduced the program.
Three officers each from the Bingham County Sheriff's Office, the Blackfoot Police and Fire departments and one from the Idaho National Guard received plaques and a gift basket with items from various businesses.
County commissioner Whitney Manwaring spoke briefly before the officers received their recognitions.
