Brother Speed motorcycle club holds raffle to benefit veterans organization

POCATELLO — The local chapter of the Brother Speed motorcycle club held a raffle at their clubhouse Saturday to benefit Professional Transformation Sports Development, or PTSD, which is a Pocatello based non-profit that helps veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder and depression by providing them with outdoor recreation opportunities.

The raffle was part of the club’s third annual PTSD awareness month event. According to club President Howard Moir, the group had previously donated the money raised from the events to a national veteran organization. But a club member had heard about the PTSD non-profit and decided the money would be better spent on a local cause.

“We hope to keep this organization involved in every (fundraiser) from here on out,” Moir said.

Russell Davies, founder of PTSD, said Brother Speed approached him about collaborating on a fundraiser.

NAMPA -- A disturbance that began inside a downtown Nampa business erupted into a shootout Tuesday night.

Nampa Police Lt. Eric Skoglund said Wednesday that investigators are still searching for the people involved in the gun battle.
