Students and adults alike enjoyed a perfect spring afternoon Wednesday at the Eastern Idaho State Fairgrounds for the 20th annual D.A.R.E. Activities Day. The event was in celebration of the D.A.R.E. graduations of about 900 fifth graders from throughout the county.
The Bingham County D.A.R.E program started with a grant in 1990 and was spearheaded by two sheriff's deputies who started teaching the program in the schools in an effort to steer kids away from violence, drugs and alcohol.
BLACKFOOT â€” A year ago, almost to the day, C&B Operations purchased Rockymountain Machinery and renamed the business Bingham County Implement.
Although customer service was important, Rockymountain often took three to four business days to receive a requested part. Now that it's the Bingham County Implement, it only takes a mere two hours to receive a part because it's part of a large corporation.
Items of note from April 14-20.
