While there have been no confirmed human cases of West Nile virus in East Idaho so far this summer, residents are urged to take precautions after mosquitoes collected in a trap during a routine test by the Fort Hall Reservation's Mosquito Abatement Program tested positive for the virus recently. Randy'L Teton, public affairs manager for the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes reported that information on Tuesday.
The virus, which is spread through a mosquito bite, impacted three Idahoans last year, and one woman in Twin Falls County has contacted it so far this year, according to a press release.
It may not be the iconic yellow taxi seen on the streets of New York City, but it is the one and only taxi service in Blackfoot and taxi driver Rob Beebe said his new business, B-B Taxi, is filling a need in the community and that his gray '92 Honda Accord works just fine as a taxi cab.
Beebe, a Blackfoot native who was born in the original Colonial Inn, definitely knows his way around the area and has plenty of experience behind the wheel as he worked as a long-haul truck driver for 35 years and drove for Country Coach for nearly five years.
