Check out noteworthy things being done and honors received by people in Idaho cities around the state.


Ashton Mayor Teddy Stronks is participating in the Mayor’s School Walking Challenge. As well as walking with local elementary school students, encouraging them to be more active and thus healthier, Mayor Stronks sets the example himself by walking additional time each day.


Jeremy Presnell, the City’s former Deputy Fire Chief, has been selected as the new Fire Chief for the City of Jerome. He replaces Tom Hughes, who resigned his position with the City when he accepted a job in the greater Houston area. Mike Harrison was selected as the new Deputy Fire Chief.


Ketchum Mayor Nina Jonas is participating in the Mayor’s School Walking Challenge during the month of October, Children’s Health Month. Mayors walking the most miles during the month win money to support healthy projects for kids.


Maureen Puddicombe is the newest member of the City of Ketchum’s Planning & Building Department.


Meridian Mayor Tammy de Weerd is participating in the Mayor’s School Walking Challenge, a month-long competition sponsored by the Blue Cross of Idaho Foundation for Health, St. Luke’s and the Idaho Dairy Council. Nearly all of the 16 schools in Meridian are participating. To encourage health and activity among school children, Mayor Tammy’s Walking Club will take over in the Spring.


Twin Falls Mayor Shawn Barigar is participating in the Mayors’ School Walking Challenge, sponsored by the Blue Cross of Idaho Foundation, during October. Throughout the month, he will be hosting “walk with the mayor meet-ups” on trails, in parks, and at area schools. The goal of the challenge is to increase the health of children by encouraging them to walk and run at school.


The Twin Falls Airport Department held its annual Summer Roundup Barbeque Contest in September. Paul Brady won Best Entrée for his Tantalizing Tri-Tip, Ken Weigel won Best Side for his baked bean bravado, and Candy Gonzalez won Best Dessert with her fantastic Choco Flan Cake.


Tim Soule recently resigned as Chief of the Twin Falls Fire Department.
