I would like to take a few minutes to thank a few people who helped us with our 7th Annual Patriot Day for our 5th graders, and our 7th Annual Car Show, and Idaho Roll Call, that was held on Sept. 8th & 10th.  Hosted by the Rupert Veterans Memorial Inc. and the City Of Rupert.  First of …

Once again, the Cassia County Fair and Rodeo did not disappoint!  It was an absolute pleasure to come together with neighbors and friends to celebrate the accomplishments of all who participated and exhibited this year.  There is a tremendous amount of behind the scenes work that goes into m…
