Irregular Blog Posting for the Next Week

Dear Reader,

I am filling in for J.B. on KIKO's morning show through next Wednesday.

Liz Mata is doing the on-the-air newscasts during that time. Unfortunately, with our small staff, that means I won't be able to pay much attention to this blog for a few days.

i will try to do some occasional posts and will copy and paste Liz's police reports.

Things should be back to normal next Thursday.

Thanks for your patience!
