Todd Lyons

My name is Todd E. Lyons. On the radio you may know me as “Todd E. Lyons, Esquire.” I have been on the airwaves in Yakima since 1989 and look forward to it every day. I was born in Seattle, the son of a sharecropper. My family and I moved to the “Fruit Bowl of the Nation” when I was a wee lad of only 7. I spent my formative years in the West Valley of Yakima, indoctrinated in public school. I became keenly familiar with the “special” desk while attending Apple Valley Elementary. The teachers referred to it as the “isolation booth,” but I called it the “special desk.” Most of what I know today, however, can be credited to the “School of Hard Knocks.” I currently reside in East Valley with my lovely wife, Carrie, and our son, Drew. I am extremely fortunate to work on the very radio stations I grew up listening to. So much so that I not only was once a client, I became an employee! If you ever see me stumbling about this great valley of ours, please give me a shout. I would love to talk with you about rock music, sports, individual liberty or whatever spins your beanie!

Weiner and Nuts Heading This Way Up I-5 From Oregon [PHOTOS]

My neighbor, Toby Bradley, is an independent trucker who, I'm quite sure, sees a LOT from his perch in the cab of his big rig.

Today he shared a couple of photos he took while on the road on his Facebook page with the following caption:

Iowa State Fair Has Worst (Best?) Logo In History

Marketing and advertising agencies get paid BIG BUCKS to develop themes, slogans, commercials and campaigns to promote everything from toothpaste to state fairs.

To think that no one -- NO ONE -- balked at the logo for this year's Iowa State Fair says that they're either a.) completely oblivious or b.) have a REALLY twisted sense of humor!

See for yourself why, in their words, "nothing compares" to the Iowa State Fair. Now that I think about it, it brings a whole new meaning to "riding the Zipper at the fair."

Todd’s Take: Summer Fun On I-90! Some Dude’s Boat Fell Off Its Hitch In the Middle Of the Highway [VIDEO]

On Saturday, after helping to announce the 64th annual Moxee Hop Festival parade, my wife, son and I jumped into our car to head to Seattle to pay homage to Ken Griffey, Jr. as he returned to the Emerald City to have his jersey number officially retired by the club.

We were pressed for time because we wanted to get there as early as possible to get our hands on on of the 20,000 replica Hall of Fame plaques that were being handed out for free to the fans on a first-come, first-served basis.

Then, somebody threw a monkey wrench into our travel plans.

Todd’s Take: My Seven-Day Facebook ‘Marriage Challenge’ — In One Day!

A couple of days ago, a friend of mine "tagged" me to take the seven-day Facebook "Marriage Challenge."

I'm not sure of the rules or object of the game, but I do know this -- there's no way I'll remember to post a pic of me and my wife for an entire week, so I figure I'll do it all at once!
