Snow Day

February 15th, 2011 at 10:38 am

Today’s Flyover People column as seen in The Emporia Gazette: an old Unruh family photo SNOW DAY For hours, the snow falls. City crews plow, one blade following another.

Helping out

February 9th, 2011 at 8:17 am

“After a while, it just becomes part of the scenery,” Terry Smith said about the tornado debris on a neighbor’s property near his home in Pratt County. I visited Terry and Nancy Smith in October. The May 4, 2007 Greensburg tornado passed over the Smiths’ house. The following night, May 5, another tornado struck. Those […]
