House damaged in windstorm

August 13, 2013

As a result of Tuesday's sudden windstorm, three trees toppled on top of each other and came to rest on top of Lynda Thompson's house.
At 2:55 p.m. on Tuesday Thompson heard a crashing sound outside of her home.
"I thought it was the tree right next to the living room that had fallen over on my house, but I went outside once the windstorm was over and discovered that it was three trees that toppled on top of each other on the opposite side of the house," said Thompson.
Thompson had planned on mowing the lawn earlier that day, but was grateful that she chose not to.

Blind and visually impaired receive tips for living

IDAHO FALLS – Two Bingham County women have spent the past two weeks teaching visually-impaired and blind children in the Braille Enrichment for Literacy and Learning (BELL) program.
The day camp went from 9 a.m.-3 p.m., Monday through Friday, for two weeks. Classes were in the Parks and Recreation building in Idaho Falls. The camp ended last Friday.
 “We help children become more confident in what they do,” said Vicki Bateman from Shelley.
“With more confidence comes the understanding that it’s O.K. to be blind,” said Sandy Streeter from Blackfoot.
