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

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…MORE

Mom’s deviled eggs, and other Independence Day memories

Mom’s deviled eggs, and other Independence Day memories

My parents did a wonderful job of exposing me to as much art and culture as possible growing up. We didn’t picnic often, but when we did, we did it in style. Just a simple family of 3, Mom Dad and me, would go to Blossom Music Center every July 4th to see the Cleveland…MORE

I pitched for Bill Buckner and Steve Garvey

June 14th, 2014. The Boise Hawks commonly have people throw out the first pitch. Dignitaries, business leaders, and when they can’t get a hold of anyone important, afternoon talk show hosts. It was dollar hot dog night. The Hawks were on that night. Hitting everything. Fielding was perfect. It was a great night at the…MORE

The “guns-in-school” issue fix is simple

Let me clarify. This idea does not stop bullying, fix mental health issues, address pharmaceutical issues, increase morality, solve the never ending adolescent issues of hormones, heartbreak, jealousy or self- confidence. It only solves one issue. It also does not solve the issue of crimes that may occur in parking lots, sidewalks, movie theaters, night…MORE

I love you Mom!

I love you Mom!

In writing this, I realize my Mom has had an amazing journey. Growing up in the 30’s & 40’s, and wanting to become a Catholic nun. Changing her mind, finding herself wanting a family and career. Meeting my Dad. Dating him from 1962 to 1972. Marrying my Dad. Having me. Going to nursing school. Getting her…MORE

Halloween Blog: Candy Corn – YUCK!

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…

Isn’t It About Time We Ban Hand Held Devices While Driving in Every Idaho City?

Isn’t It About Time We Ban Hand Held Devices While Driving in Every Idaho City?

The ordinance passed Tuesday night (10/22). But it didn’t pass easily. It required Mayor Tammy deWeerd to cast the tie-breaking vote. The ban goes into…
