Visitors are not uncommon for Lyle Smith, but on Monday, they came bearing a special gift. Smith, the 100-year-old former football coach at Boise Junior College, got a new power chair at his apartment in the Hillcrest Assisted Living facility on the Boise Bench. Former players, fans and community members helped raise the $4,000 needed for the chair in a matter of days. Kyle Green kgreen@idahostatesman.com
