Worthington BLOG: Memorial Day Weekend 2018


Memorial Day Weekend 2018

First thing, I will take time on Monday to honor those who fought and died for our country. I hope you do too.

My grandfathers both fought in World War II. My uncle Fought in Vietnam. My brother survived 2 tours in the Middle East. I am happy to say, they all survived those wars. Others were not as lucky. Take a moment to consider that, and remember them on Monday.

Saturday and Sunday, I intend to do something a little less somber. My BBQ will be smokin’ and the NBA Playoffs will help keep me company. I may even mix in an adult beverage while I am at it. If I could throw all my responsibilities at home out the window, (wishful thinking) I would throw my fly fishing gear in the car and head out for a couple days. Maybe even camp a night out under the stars with my boys.

For all of you heading out this weekend; be safe, and enjoy some of our wide open spaces. It’s just one of the many reasons Idaho is such a great place to live.

Halloween Blog: Candy Corn – YUCK! By Rick Worthington 10/31/19 Let me just go ahead and get this out of the way. Candy corn is gross. If you give out candy corn on Halloween, kids are leaving your house upset. Little Jimmy and Suzzy are complaining to Mom and Dad, and your neighbors are embarrassed…

I Love Mike Kasper…But Sometimes He’s Just…Wrong

While some may celebrate Meridian’s dedication to automotive safety by passing a “Hands Free Ordinance”, I do not. Driving any automobile is dangerous. Distractions are abound. Be it inside or outside the car. Screaming kids, eating, makeup application, shaving, pets, and your radio (not us, everyone else) to name a few from the inside. Then…
