For some people, being able to drive a semi truck is just something they have always wanted to do. Whether they are drawn by the seemingly limitless freedom of the open road or the lure of making big money, there are quite a few reasons people want to get behind the wheel of these massive machines. Although it’s certainly not an easy job, there are many perks to being a truck driver, including steady paychecks and plenty of time off.

Hey truck drivers mark your calendar for this Saturday. For one day only, Westmore Carriers is hiring, on the spot, for Class A and Class C truck drivers, plus they are paying out a $3500 event day only sign on bonus for Class A drivers.  

Just walk in for an interview from 9am-3pm at the Moline Hampton Inn, 2450 69th Avenue, or call for more information 309-644-2278.  This is your chance to drive for a local company and be home with your family every night and on weekends.

I, Bill Stage, will be there from 10am-Noon, so stop by and say hi and if you're lucky we'll have some freebies for you to take home with you.

Becoming a professional driver can be an extremely rewarding career. Compared to other drivers, professional drivers typically earn higher wages and have more job security.  If you’re interested in pursuing professional driving as your career of choice, this weekend would be a great time to look into seeing if you have what it takes to be a professional truck driver.

DIY Mc

Everyone is rejoicing that the McRib is back! You can hear the chanting from down the block. Everyone is washing their hands a little bit more due to the bbq sauce residue and it's wonderful.

All is right with the world.

But it isn't always like this. The McRib will leave soon and we'll have to settle for a McChicken or a Double Quarter Pounder like a peasant. Life isn't fair. We know this.

However, my cousin Steve has figured out a way to beat the system.

He's gotten his hands dirty and experimented so we don't have to. He has perfected the DIY McRib!
