Idaho’s 18th corn maze season begins

Twenty years ago, corn mazes were just starting to crop up around the country. The U.S. didn’t even have a maze dedicated to public entertainment until 1993, when Pennsylvania began what is now a favorite fall tradition in America.

PET OF THE WEEK

Penny is a 5-year-old spayed Beagle mix who is house trained, up to date with her shots and good with other dogs. The shelter references Penny as portly, maybe from an over indulgence in snacks and treats, but trots gamely along on walks (she does need to stop for a breather now and then). A bit of cutting back on goodies and increasing an exercise routine should slim her down fairly quickly. Penny’s interests include soft toys (which she carries on her walks till she find a place to try and bury them), other dogs and people. For information, call the Meridian Valley Humane Society at 794-0944.
