FRUITLAND — At its regular meeting on Monday, the Fruitland City Council took up a somewhat unusual request on its meeting agenda — a weekend 5k walk/run event organized by students of Fruitland Middle School. Presenting a request for permission to use the route taken by annual ‘Run for the Hill’ participants for this run was 8th grade Honors Class student Rocky Weatherspoon.

Rocky said the project is part of an assignment to find ways to give back to Fruitland schools.
