I learned to snowmobile with the best of them, but I could never do what our Joe Parsons can. The kid is amazing. He has just taken two medals in the 2017 Winter X-Games in Aspen, Colo.

Driving and Talking in Speaker Phone is NOT Illegal, According to WSP

We're trying to make smarter drivers out of everyone across the nation, especially right here in our backyard of Washington state. I know it's illegal to talk on your phone while driving (with your phone pressed up against your ear) and it's illegal to text and drive, but I see more and more people driving with one hand on the steering wheel and talking to their phone while it's on speaker phone.

What Are You Keeping That You Should Throw Away? My Harley Boots!

I have never really been a pack rat or a hoarder. But I most recently moved, and when I went through everything, I couldn't believe the stuff I had kept. I threw most of it away.

What Have Yakima Valley Parents Done To Save A Few Dollars?

But the older I have gotten, I look back on some of those things. My father never "took things in" to get fixed by someone else. He could fix anything, so he did it himself. That is one thing he did to save money. I guess that is why my brother and I always had nice things.
