BLACKFOOT â The Bingham County Prosecutorâs Office is seeking to dismiss felony charges facing three of the five former Blackfoot High School athletes charged with various criminal offenses that occurred last year.

POCATELLO â The Blackfoot Lady Broncos got behind the eight ball early in their road date at Highland High School on Tuesday evening and were never able to recover as the Lady Rams completed the season sweep of the Lady Broncos with a 53-19 victory.
"Offensively we didn't execute as well as we are capable of but honestly, I am really optimistic about how far they have come offensively," Blackfoot head coach Mike Kirkham said. "Against a team like Highland, it didn't show though."
Elsie Nation, 82, of Blackfoot passed away Monday, Jan. 3, 2011, at The Willows in Blackfoot.
Service arrangements are pending and will be announced by Hawker Funeral Home.
