This is a really short one.
My brother Mark sent me the following breaking news from our hometown newspaper. Yes, these are real bits of news from the sheriff's department from a real newspaper from a real town in Northwest Kansas. And this is why I loved growing up there.
THOMAS COUNTY SHERIFF
9:43 a.m. - Funeral block.
10:53 a.m. - Funeral block.
11:42 a.m. - Horse out on U.S. 24 east of County Rd 23. Horse out in a corn field when sheriff arrived; possible owner contacted.
12:10 p.m. - Elderly lady going eastbound in the westbound lane, not found.
Of course, you have to realize that Tuesday is typically the busiest day of the week in Colby, Kansas. And that's all I have to say about that.
