When Im sick shes like, "Im going to Wichita today shopping with my cousin and let you rest! Shed had about enough of me and my coughing and moaning and she did go shopping and have a girls day so I could "rest" as she put it. Its a dance that nobody likes to dance to, or likes the song.

We decided that a good way to pass the rest of that day was to watch some movie on Netflix. Ive had the miserable honor of covering the events of the Steven Myers death on October 6, 2017.
My hope is that we soon heal as a county and community; that we are safe and that there is justice - in what form, I do not know.
Shes been one of my kids over the past year and it is sad to see her go, but Im happy for her.
Today my job is simply to present you with the most current information, without inserting my opinion.
I hope I do that, while honoring this process of law.
