But seriously folks, Jess has been great to work with and I wish her the best of luck! I dont expect her to get a Pulitzer anytime soon, but with some practice, shes going to be a great addition to The Gyp Hill Premiere. Along with Bree, we get our Granddaughter Baylee for half the day in the office.
Baylee is currently finishing her degree in pres-school, so she only goes half days.
If not understood, on the outside, it looks like a cluster of unorganized chaos.
All of it has purpose for fairness and accountability for each side, whether it be for the plaintiff or the defendant.
I wear so many hats at times: newspaper, bondsman, lawn mower, janitor....
Today my job is simply to present you with the most current information, without inserting my opinion.
In 1946 my Grandpa Bill bought his first newspaper, the Logan Republican. Well, Ive read some of my grandpas and dads early columns and I am glad to say that I come from a long line of some terrible writers!
Seriously though, some of these columns were very well done and made me smile to think how far back my heritage in the newspaper business goes. KWIBS, of some form, has been a part of Kansas newspaper history for close to 75 years now, with a few years of gaps in between.
When we started our newspaper in 1991, my early columns were terrible, even worse than today. I brought the name with me when Ronda and I started The Gyp Hill Premiere.
Many people over the years have asked me, where the name came from.
Now, the column name "KWICK KWIBS, Jr" by my dad, Ron Noland, came from his father (my Grandpa Bill).
Every motion, memorandum or rulings are just small pieces of a complex process that our community must go through to get to the end.
My heart breaks when I think about what everyone has gone through in this difficult situation: The family and friends of Steven Myers, The Sheriffs Department and all of the deputies, the EMS crews and the people of Sun City and Barber County - all wanting answers.
