Another Local Lottery Winner?

Glenn Garlick

Glenn Garlick of Eagle, closed his business due to the economy - and now his LUCK has turned around! He won $100,000 dollars in the Idaho Lottery! WOW! He won the cash in a scratch game. He tells us he plans to use the money to take a family vacation to the Caribbean and pay for school at BSU. Garlick bought the ticket at the Stinker near Eagle and Chinden.

(I may need to stop there today... all of these lottery winners lately make me feel it's possible!)

New Voice for the Broncos

Pete Cavender

Well, kind of new. Afterall, he is a former BRONCO! As a former BSU player (2003-2007 including the Fiesta Bowl) Pete will offer his own perspective on team strategies, plays, coaches and players. Peak Broadcasting, the company that owns 580 KIDO - tells us Pete will join Bob Behler this fall for the radio broadcasts of all the games.


You may remember that Cavender played with his twin brother Jeff on the Bronco's offensive line. It was hard for me to tell the two apart when I saw them around town... I never got it right. Congrats to Pete!
