CONNELLY: Sagebrush wildflower season is upon us

There’s Christmas season, archery season, pheasant season, big game season, and all kinds of other seasons that identify special events or pastimes. One of my favorites, though not often talked about, is the sagebrush wildflower season. This season defines a time when a short stroll through sagebrush country yields a myriad of colors and shapes to anyone paying a little attention.

Marcus Yupe nearly strikes deputy during high speed pursuit on May 8, 2021

Bingham County Sheriff's Office Cpl. Lawrence Henrie and Deputy Brook Ferro deployed a spike strip device across Shilling Avenue just prior to a bridge spanning the Blackfoot River. Henrie controlled the spike strip from a position on the opposite side of the road from Yupe and Ferro stood just off the roadway near a marked patrol vehicle. Yupe drove directly towards Henrie and Ferro, prompting Henrie to open fire on the truck. Henrie’s shots struck the driver’s side of the pickup truck, but Yupe continued driving. Both deputies narrowly avoided being hit by the truck; as it passed passed within two feet of Henrie and within approximately ten feet of Ferro.

About eight years ago, I received a phone call from a concerned voter in the Jamestown Precinct here in Bingham County. The call was not expressing concern over a position of the party or a Republican candidate on the ballot. The call was expressing concern over the welfare of our precinct committeeman, Wayne Griffith, who was out on a cold and stormy night campaigning for one of the party’s candidates.
