Idaho Celebrates 116 Years
Monday the gem state added another candle to the cake in celebration of its 116th year of statehood.
Governor Jim Risch marked the occasion in the afternoon with a birthday cake celebration in his office at the statehouse.
It was on July 3rd, 1890 that years of battles over which way to divide the territory between Washington and Nevada were ended.
