Worthington BLOG: Take a deep breath Bronco Nation

  Take a deep breath Bronco Nation Now is not the time to freak out. Yes, Boise State was beaten soundly by Oklahoma State, but hear me out. That is what usually happens when you travel to a top 25 ranked opponent. And, that should not make you believe the Broncos are not capable of…MORE

It’s time to send the kids back to school this week. While my younger children seem to be pretty excited about going back to school, my teens are not happy. I’m guessing it’s because the days of sleeping in until 11:30am on a Tuesday and playing 12 straight hours of Fortnight are pretty much over.…MORE

I Favor Some Teachers Being Allowed to Carry Guns

I have four children, and I am scared silly about a school shooting occurring in Idaho. Why does it frighten me? Well, for one, just about everybody has a gun in their house in Idaho. I don’t have exact statistics to back me up on this, but I don’t know many people who don’t own…MORE

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…
