The Town of Jerome celebrated the completion of its horseshoe pits project at a grand opening ceremony Tuesday afternoon. Mayor Frank Vander Horst announced the pits would be known as the Blair Horseshoe Pits, a surprise to attendees of the grand opening and to Fire Chief Rusty Blair himself. The pits are next to Upper Park above Main Street. “Rusty Blair has been instrumental to getting this done,” said Mayor Vander Horst. “Rusty has done so much in town and we hadn’t named anything after him.” The project restored the pits that had been out of use for 13 years.
