Blackfoot Mayor Mike Virtue said that the stories going around about swimmer's itch at Jensen Grove are out of control and that there is much misinformation getting out to the public. Virtue said that visitors to Jensen Grove are afraid to go in the water after recent stories and social media postings about swimmer's itch bites with black worms embedded in the skin.
"The swimmers are freaking out. There are no black worms at Jensen Grove that can get into your body and eat your brain," he joked.
BLACKFOOTâ€”A few weeks ago we asked our Facebook friends about their financial experience with an emergency Life Flight; due to the response on Facebook, we decided to do some research.
LifeFlight Network's(LFN) main goal is to save lives. They have been striving to achieve that goal by transporting over 75,000 patients over the course of the past 35 years.
We want to get the word out that the Community Dinner Table BBQ is not tonight, as posted on the front page of the newspaper, but is in fact tomorrow night from 5-7 p.m. at Courthouse Square (across from Hawker Funeral Home) in Blackfoot.
This BBQ is for those who need a hot meal, or are hungry for social interaction.
