BLACKFOOT â€” October is recognized as "National Long-Term Care Residents' Rights Month." To celebrate, representatives from the Area Agency on Aging spoke with about 25 residents at the Willows on Tuesday.
The theme of this year's celebration is "My Voice, My Vote, My Right" with the goal of educating the community about residents' rights, including the right to vote and participate in the political process.
BLACKFOOT â€” What was once a giant patch of weeds outside the Blackfoot Animal Shelter has been transformed into a well manicured green lawn with a manmade brook leading into a scenic pond.
Nearly two months in the works, the landscaping project was a joint effort between Premier Technology and the City of Blackfoot. Christi Kotter, a controller at Premier Technology who helped on the project, said, "Doug Sayer [Premier Technology president] was working on his own property here and saw a need to help the neighbor [Blackfoot Animal Clinic] next door."
