Check out noteworthy things being done and honors received by people in Idaho cities around the state.
The National League of Cities (NLC) recognized Mayor Garret Nancolas for recent completion of key health and wellness goals for Let’s Move! Cities, Towns and Counties (LMCTC). LMCTC is a major component of First Lady Michelle Obama’s comprehensive Let’s Move! Initiative to ensure that kids can grow up healthy. LMCTC works closely with local elected officials nationwide to adopt policies that improve access to healthy affordable food and opportunities for physical activity for their constituents across five goal areas, receiving gold medals for each. The City of Caldwell achieved its fifth and final gold medal on December 19. More than 500 cities, towns and counties are participating in LMCTC, and 80 million Americans are now living in LMCTC communities that are dedicated to helping young people eat healthy foods and be physically active.
Lucinda Hites has been hired as the new City Clerk-Treasurer for the City of Kendrick.

Under the leadership of sports coordinator Garrett White, volunteers and staff purchased, wrapped and delivered more than 300 gifts to benefit 55 children.
