SARATOGA SPRINGS â€” A tragedy in Utah tonight as a one-year old baby girl dies while sleeping in a car seat. The baby died this evening, after efforts to revive her failed. The baby's death ironically comes on the same day of a new international study, which says leaving infants in a car seat can be dangerous.
We've probably all done it â€” you come home from a trip and the baby is still sleeping, so rather than risk waking the baby up, you leave her in a car seat like this while she sleeps in the house. Sadly tonight, a Utah baby may have died from exactly that.
BLACKFOOT â€” A photography studio, beauty makeovers and massage therapy might seem like an odd combination under one roof for a business, but it's working out perfectly for young business owner Shauny Solinsky at her new business "Velair" (130 S. Broadway) in Blackfoot.
Shauny, who was the only girl in her family, said she always loved playing in makeup and would often dress up and put makeup on her two little brothers, taking pictures, much to their chagrin.
Snake River's first four baskets were 3-pointers as the Panthers started fast en route to a 69-52 District Five victory over Marsh Valley on Friday night.
Jaden Poulter got a steal and layup to complete the first quarter scoring for the Panthers (6-0, 17-3). Trey Albertson and Brad Coombs each had a 3-pointer and Kade Harral had two in Snake River's early barrage.
Snake River led 14-7 after one quarter. The Eagles (2-4, 5-15) closed within 14-10 to open the second before the Panthers answered with a 9-0 run to take control.
As time wound down in the fourth quarter Blackfoot head coach Dan Hale put his hands on top of his head in frustration.
After battling through four tough quarters a couple of defensive lapses in the final two minutes of the game saw another game slip away as Blackfoot fell 61-54 to Idaho Falls Friday night.
After a layup by Taylor Pearson tied the game at 50-50 with 1:19 left in the game, Idaho Falls went on an 11-4 run to build a nine point lead the Blackfoot would never recover from.
BLACKFOOT â€” Hopefully there will be closure soon for the family of Blackfoot man Jack Doering, who has been missing for over a year, as San Bernandino County officials work to identify human remains found in the California desert that are believed to be his.
Doering, who would be 83 years old and suffered from Alzheimer's disease, has not been seen since Jan. 17, 2013 when he grabbed the keys his Chevy Suburban and drove away from a Yuma, Ariz. shopping center where he and his wife Leah were getting haircuts. The longtime Blackfoot residents wintered in the area.
