Minico head coach Clay Robinson admitted to feeling a “little disappointment” in Saturday’s final round of the 2023 Idaho High School Wrestling State Championships. Joseph Terry, one of the team’s leaders, acknowledged the Spartans “didn’t wrestle to our best.”That’s just how good this wrestling team is: Minico won its second straight 4A state championship, anyway. It was the third in a row for the Magic Valley, too — Jerome won in 2021. We’ve got each other’s backs, no matter what,” said Vail, who won the 220-pound title by pinning Mountain Home’s Demetri Smith in the second period. There were jitters, too, for Vail — even as a defending state champion who had lost just once all season.1 month ago Twin Falls Times-News
Clyde Council to consider citizens raising chickens in town Due to rising egg prices more people are adding chicken coopsCLYDE - A woman's desire to have new pets plus the high cost of eggs have coincidently led Clyde City Council to deal with old livestock legislation and discuss whether citizens can raise chickens in the city. Earlier this week City Council approved an ordinance cleaning up a conflict between livestock legislation — a 1985 ordinance and a 1956 ordinance. Then about that same time a resident attended a council session asking the city to consider allowing chickens in the city. Clyde resident Christie Marie Watkins went to the council meeting on Feb. 21 to ask council to consider allowing chickens to be raised at local homes. Over the years, Clyde has had an assortment of livestock raised at various properties including horses, chickens, and rabbits.1 month ago The News-Messenger
Wilhelm: More on Jacksons, Willow Hill and efforts to share insight into African American history Willow Hill concentrates on African American HistoryDr. Alvin Jackson, who served at the Community Health Services in Fremont in the late 20th century, says the Willow Hill Heritage and Renaissance Center in Bulloch County, Georgia, aims to provide Americans with insight into the values of African American history and culture as related to American history and culture. Today, he said the center focuses on local, state and national African American history, but quickly pointed out “a lot of work is done in genealogy because a lot of African American people have lost contact with their history.” To help people reach into their own history, the center has a collection of more than 18,000 obituaries and is adding to the collection regularly. He continues to practice medicine part time and serves as president of the Georgian African American Historic Preservation Network. The 1988 National History Day Exhibit tells the history of the Willow Hill School won first place in the Junior Division at the National History Day Competition in Washington, D.C.

According to Tailored West founder and CEO Nanci Kezar, more than 85 percent of retail shops close within five years of opening — a statistic that both Kezar and Tailored West have beaten with resounding efficacy. Tailored West officially opened for business in February 2013 and has been a community staple ever since. Together, they brainstormed ways to keep Tailored West afloat during a time when people weren’t leaving their homes let alone actively buying apparel. As part of her increased interest in dyeing, Kezar was led to pursue an expansion to Tailored West. In May, TW Soiree officially will open for business alongside Tailored West.1 month ago Canon City Daily Record
Lake Geneva flourished during the decades following the Civil War. The key to this flourishing was the restoration of the railroad connection between Chicago and Lake Geneva in 1871. They were the vanguard of many wealthy Chicagoans who would buy land and build summer mansions on the shores of Geneva Lake, a development that would result in Lake Geneva becoming one of the premium summer resorts in the United States. Many of the leading citizens in Lake Geneva during the second half of the 19th Century were Civil War veterans. The station’s capacious waiting room became one of Lake Geneva’s “social centers.”On Jan. 1, 1900, residents of Lake Geneva celebrated the first turn of a century in the city’s history.1 month ago Lake Geneva News
