Pocatello firefighters from Local 187 could be seen out in the community this week helping build a retaining wall. Officials say several weeks ago, one of their crews was called to a medical emergency, which happened while a person was building the wall. The photos show the crew returning to help out that person, even after their job ended.

They issued a challenge to mayors across the country to save water and Rexburg Mayor Jerry Merrill won. He says some 10,000 pledges came in from local residents and he credits fourth graders for helping secure the victory. A new Toyota Highlander was part of the first-place award.
