RIGGINS — Correction to the Hot Summer Nights 2014 Talent Show winners: First-place winners in the youth division were Kylie and Ty McClanahan with their puppet show and song to the tune of the YMCA with words about “Hot Summer Nights” that they wrote themselves. Second place went to Chaya Johnson singing “Jesus Take the Wheel.” Third place was tied with Hailee Coup singing “Here we have Idaho” and Lucy Brundage reciting “Five Little Monkeys.” First place in the non-theme division was the Savage Dribble Team - Sarah Laritz, Chevelle Shepherd, Payton Branstetter, Sierra Bovey, Ethan Shepherd, and Garrett Shepherd doing a routine with basketballs to the song, “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” sung by Ryan Simonson. Second place went to Ludi Phillips playing fiddle and singing “Milk Cow Blues.” Third place was a tie between Juile Todderud playing guitar and singing “History” which she wrote and Conner Butler performing a fire dance. First place in the theme division was Shantel Schwartz and Thann Shira singing “Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better.” Second place went to Alison Todderud singing “New York New York.” Third place went to Maria Erskine playing ukulele and singing “Folsom Prison Blues.” I apologize for the incorrect information printed in the July 30 edition of Riggins News in the Idaho County Free Press.
