Crews spent about two hours moving a semi-truck that became stuck at a tight curve on Canyon Springs Road going into the Snake River Canyon.  The call for help came in just before 6 pm Sunday.  The driver thought he was on Highway 93.

Authorities say a small aircraft crashed in the mountains of central Idaho, killing a Boise man and injuring the pilot. David Henderson died and Andrew D. Akin of Griffin, Georgia, was injured when their aircraft went down Saturday near the Sulphur Creek Ranch airstrip. 

Prosecutors in the trial of a former Blaine County sheriff's deputy accused of stealing from a police program have finished calling witnesses. Idaho State Police Detective Jarod Sweesy testified for hours last week about his seizure of items bought by Chad Schiermeier with misspent funds.

High temperatures and low humidity continue to make fighting wildfires in Idaho a challenge, especially with a wildfire-fighting force that's already stretched to the limit. Fire officials say those factors along with shifting winds could cause problems for a 35-square-mile wildfire in central Idaho.

Crews recovered the remains of a Burley man Yesterday afternoon who was swept away while fishing a few days ago.  Minidoka County Sheriff Eric Snarr said the man's body was recovered within a mile of where he went missing on Friday.  The man’s identity should be announced later today. 

An Idaho company that has been producing bobbleheads of Boise State University players and coaches for about a decade says there will be no bobbleheads this year.  Jackson Food Stores is ending the run for now after releasing 40 Boise State bobbleheads saying they have become less desirable but declined to discuss sales numbers.

Officials with the Canyon County Public Defender's office say they are considering a possible agreement with a nearby county to handle their legal defenses in death penalty cases because they don’t have anyone certified to be a lead attorney in a death penalty trial.  This means Ada County could take over Canyon County's death penalty cases if the defendant requires a public defender.

Gas prices are going up.  Currently, the average price in Idaho is $2.77, a 20 cent jump over the past month and more than 10 cents above the national average of $2.63.

September 5th: On this day

Born on this day in Akron, Ohio, was David Allan Coe songwriter, outlaw country music singer and guitarist. His best-known compositions are the #1 successes "Would You Lay With Me (In a Field of Stone)," which was covered by Tanya Tucker; and "Take This Job and Shove It," which was later covered by Johnny Paycheck.

Hank Snow was at #1 on the Country music singles charts with "I'm Moving On". The song, stayed at the top of the charts for 21 weeks and was the first of seven #1 Billboard country hits Snow scored throughout his career.

Johnny Cash was at #1 on the US Country chart with At San Quentin a recording of a live concert given to the inmates of San Quentin State Prison. The album, which spent 20 weeks at the top of the chart, was nominated for a number of Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year and won Best Male Country Vocal Performance for "A Boy Named Sue."

Janis Joplin started recording sessions recording a version of the Kris Kristofferson and Fred Foster song “Me and Bobby McGee”. Joplin, (who was a lover and a friend of Kristofferson's from the beginning of her career to her death), topped the US singles chart with the song in 1971 after her death, making the song the second posthumous #1 single in US chart history after the 1968 "(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay" by Otis Redding.

Dolly Parton was at #1 on the US country music album chart with Heartbreaker, her 20th solo studio album. The title song, a ballad written by Carole Bayer Sager, topped the US country charts, and became Parton's third top-forty pop hit.

American singer-songwriter, guitarist and record producer Joe South died aged 72. Best known for his songwriting, South won the Grammy Award for Song of the Year in 1970 for "Games People Play" and South's most-commercially-successful composition was Lynn Anderson's 1971 country/pop monster hit, "Rose Garden", which was a hit in 16 countries worldwide.

Meghan Markle is in love with Prince Harry, and in a rare, very personal interview in the latest Vanity Fair, she confesses that they're a couple and they're in love.  She says  "I'm sure there will be a time when we will have to come forward and present ourselves and have stories to tell, but I hope what people will understand is that this is our time. This is for us."  Through it all, the pair has managed to avoid the paparazzi on most occasions even if the quest for more information continues to grow.



Speaking of the royal family, the BIG news over the weekend was that Prince William and wife Kate are expecting.  William said the baby was “very good news” amid the anxiety of Kate’s ongoing struggle with severe morning sickness.  Meeting dignitaries at a policing and mental health conference in Oxford, William said, “There’s not much sleep going on at the moment.”  He said the couple had been able to “start celebrating this week” after “it was a bit anxious to start with.”



The annual Burning Man Festival is taking place in the remote Arizona desert this week, and the festival that is all about art, community, and coming together to sustain by relying solely on the people surrounding you took a bizarre and unfortunate turn over the weekend.  In the midst of one of  the festivals' burning rituals, 41 year old Aaron Joel Mitchell broke through a safety perimiter Saturday Night and ran into a fire at the annual event.  He succumbed Sunday morning to injuries.  Burning rituals were cancelled for the rest of Saturday night, but had resumed by Sunday night.  The event begins every year on the last Monday of August, and concludes on the first Monday of September.
