Classic British Cars Come to Twin Falls

I don’t believe I could fit inside a Mini Cooper. Even when I was a young and thin man I couldn’t into a Miata owned by a friend. Or at least when the top was up, however. I still like the looks of a lot of small cars and especially the styling Europeans bring to automobile design.

Idaho Home to the Best Ran City in the United States, But it Isn’t Boise

Living in a city has many pros but also cons. There are more people, more traffic, and often things are more expensive. There are also pros to being closer to hospitals, and groceries, there is more to do than in small towns or the country, and there are more job opportunities. Some cities are just too big while others don't seem to have enough. Most people have a certain city that is their favorite. Some prefer Los Angeles for its weather or New York for all of its shows, or maybe Las Vegas for the nightlife and gambling is more your style.

Does Competition Have A Habit Of Ruining Your Idaho Campouts?

In my experience over the past four decades of camping in the great outdoors, I've developed a theory that there are three different kinds of camping groups.

The One And Only ‘Tater Salad’ Comedian Is Coming To Fort Hall

Ron White is going to be making a stop in Idaho at the Shoshone-Bannock Hotel and Casino this summer. This is a comedy show you are not going to want to miss. Ron White is part of the original Blue Collar Comedy Tour gang, alone with Bill Engvall, Jeff Foxworthy, and Larry the Cable Guy. Ron White has been known as "Tater Salad" because of one of the most iconic and quotable jokes from his Blue Collar Comedy Tour days. I would not consider Ron White to be family-friendly. He has a tendency to be a little raunchy, but incredibly hilarious. He is known to drink scotch and smoke a cigar throughout his entire performance. And he will make you laugh uncontrollably.

Why Taking Pets into Certain Stores Needs to be Monitored in Twin Falls

Most people that have pets love them and treat them like a member of the family. Often we will buy them gifts for holidays, take them on vacation with us, and let them sleep in our beds, but there is a thing as being a little too obsessed and taking it too far. It is possible to love your pet a little too much, and this is coming from someone that loves my dog more than most people. We all have errands we have to run weekly and places we need to go, but if you are unable to go to places without your dog or cat, then it might be time to reevaluate. Yes, some circumstances are different, such as service animals or emotional support animals, but should stores be more strict in allowing animals into their places?

New K9 Joins Magic Valley Fish and Game Team

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX)-A new dog is in town to help Magic Valley wildlife managers enforce laws and help with search and rescue. The Idaho Department of Fish and Game introduced Riley, a two-year-old chocolate lab that will begin training with his handler, Senior Conservation Officer Jim Stirling. Riley will help detect wildlife, search for evidence, and help with search and rescue efforts when needed. The pup joins three other K9s in other parts of the state with Idaho Fish and Game. “The Department’s goal is to eventually have a K-9 officer in every region,” according to Stirling, “the dogs have shown themselves to be a very effective enforcement tool, which makes our jobs of detecting wildlife violations more efficient.” Riley will also interact with the public. The Idaho Fish and Wildlife Foundation has helped fund the K9 program to buy equipment for dogs and their handlers.
