Forgive me last week for saying it is Luke Manifold who is an assistant coach at Mt. Idaho Gymnastics. That should have said Sam Manifold. Luke is my oldest daughter’s age so it was stuck in my mind. Sorry, Sam!

No words can express our heartfelt condolences to the Blackmer family for the tragic loss of their son, brother and grandson, Austin. This community will remember Austin for not only his sports prowess but also for his strength of spirit, words of encouragement to others and genuine smile. I ask God and this town of caring people to comfort the Blackmers as they make this journey of grief; they will not travel it alone.
