Idaho Falls Citizen Journalism

IDAHO FALLS, ID-- The Bureau of Land Management in Idaho announced today that it is seeking public nominations for five open positions on its Idaho Falls District Resource Advisory Council (RAC), which advises the BLM on public land issues. The BLM will consider the nominations until March 12, 2012.

The BLM's RACs, composed of citizens chosen for their expertise in natural resource issues, help the Bureau carry out its stewardship of 245 million acres of public lands. The Bureau, which manages more land than any other Federal agency, has 29 RACs across the West, where most BLM-managed land is located. Each RAC consists of 10 to 15 members with an interest in public land management, including such individuals as conservationists, ranchers, outdoor recreationists, state and local government officials, Tribal officials, and academics. The diverse membership of each RAC is aimed at achieving a balanced outlook that the BLM needs for its mission, which is to manage the public lands for multiple uses.

"I value the advice given to the BLM by these citizen-based Resource Advisory Committees," said BLM Director Bob Abbey. "The people who live, work, and recreate near or on BLM-managed lands deserve a formal voice on public land issues, and their input will enhance our agency's ability to manage the public lands for multiple uses while conserving resources for future generations."

Salmon's High School Age Hockey team is also their Midget Hockey team, Salmon only has one High School and barely enough players for one hockey team, let alone a Midget & High School team. So just to clarify; In Salmon when an age group is mentioned, it does NOT necessarily mean the team is sponsored, or supported by the school that houses that age group another example would be High School Rodeo Team or the Elementary soccer teams.
Note from LemhiWeb: I learned a little about our Idaho potatoes from this article, plus there are recipes at the end. Enjoy. "Idaho grows several potato varieties, but the one they've become most famous for is the Russet Burbank, developed in Lunenburg, Massachusetts, in the 1870s by horticulturalist Luther Burbank."
