Kimball’s cell phone has made a complete believer out of me. As I headed to the office last Thursday, there was a Kennon Concrete truck scattered out on the shoulder of Hwy. 82 where it had rolled over while sitting perfectly still according to an eye witness, Steve Woody.

On her way to the office from somewhere Monday, Kimball encountered major activity at the school construction site. She had her cell phone with her which she purchased specifically to take pictures.

It’s been an eventful week. – I started getting phone calls Monday about a massive fish kill at Shell-Osage. Davis recommended that I go take pictures. I did. He was right and so was everybody else who called. Tuesday I received a press release from the MDC. Also on Tuesday, I received a call back

Monday evening I was looking for something and attacked the in basket on my desk. As I was finding items that went back several years, I came across an unopened Christmas card. A gruff looking Santa glared at me. When I opened the card, it said, “He saw everything.” A scary enough thought. Then Adrian

I talked to Monday to Wyatt Graves about his part in the East-West All Star game over the weekend and wrote an article based on our conversation. Then, I received an email from his mom, Jodi, in much more detail and mentioning the entire family. I told her that her version was much more complete
