It was a solid second day for the Bulldogs at the 2023 Idaho HS State Wrestling Championships.
While Jorden Tyler, Calvin Hinds and Shane Sherrill each lost their semi-final rounds, Sandpoint coach Doug Fry said the three wrestlers are going for a medal today as are two others — Calvin Hinds and Grace Balch.
"We have five kids placing this year which is phenomenal," Fry said. "Last year we had one. I'm really proud of them."
Fry said Christian Troumbley, one of the team's captains, lost a heartbreaker in the last second after having a great match just before.
"He has been a delight to be around this year," he added. "He's one of the best kids I've ever coached."
Fry said he is proud of the team, noting that every kid on the Bulldogs squad got at least one win at state.

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.29 days ago Canon City Daily Record

House Speaker Rep. Albert Sommers, R-Pinedale, has deferred to the House Appropriations Committee, which voted against SF 144, aka Chloe’s Law. If the WY GOP does NOT publicly censure the Speaker and the members of the Appropriations Committee for killing SF-144 Chloe’s Law. Sommers said he didn’t assign the bill to a committee because it was too similar to Chloe’s Law.

Cordova began working at St. Thomas More Orthopedics in 2020 after a decorated 24-year-long career in the military. He has seen combat, death, and war on an uncomfortably close scale but hasn’t allowed it to dampen his spirits. Next, he became responsible for a company of soldiers after which he officially became a military physician’s assistant. “The base was still on fire…still receiving casualties…we expended the three bags we had so we called out for other soldiers to donate blood,” Cordova said. As time went on, Cordova traveled extensively to share the technique he and his compatriots had used on Mace with other military medical teams.1 month ago Canon City Daily Record
On Wednesday, more than a dozen Colorado schools, including Cañon City High School were hit with a “swatting” prank. In instances of swatting, an anonymous individual makes a fictitious call to law enforcement claiming an emergency and provides a real location, hoping to spur a major police response. We do not provide information regarding the specific threat; we leave that to our law enforcement partners as they deem appropriate. To that end, this type of event is traumatic for all involved, including students, staff, and parents. At the same time, however, the swift response and exceptional execution of our safety protocols were also a tremendous testament to our committed partnership with local law enforcement.1 month ago Canon City Daily Record
