“MLive Guy” Turns 50 – Self Inflicted “Payback”

Thursday, February 27th, 2014

weather channel 2“Happy 50th Birthday to me!”  (Sarcasm)

After 7 years of surpring local folks with slightly embarrassing photos that friends and co-workers have sent to MLive on their birthdays; it’s only fair that I do it to myself, as I turn “the big 5-0.”

This is the closest I have to a “weather channel photo,” from Hurricaine Gustav’s effects on Drew County, a few years ago.

This seems like a good time to say thanks for your support, your loyalty, and for agreeing that “what I think is newsworthy, is what you think is newsworthy.”

Tornado Sirens vs. Code Red Digital & Phone Emergency Notification – on Quorum Court Agenda, Tonight

Monday, February 17th, 2014

code red zzz siren

After several years of attempting to get governmental assistance to help fund tornado sirens for Drew County, we’ve finally got funding to assist with the purchase of 27 tower sirens, which will be scattered around the county.

But as the years have passed by, many feel that the towers have been surpassed by digital technology, as the best way to go, to notify county residents of impending disanter, should it occur.
