He could be coming, if we each ask nicely.
The Emporia Gazette on Tuesday had a large front page editorial titled: “Will Tom Brokaw come to Emporia?” He is working on a documentary series: “Tom Brokaw Presents: American Character, Along Highway 50” for the USA Network. U.S. Highway 50, of course, covers 3,000 miles across 12 states, including crossing the middle of the Kansas Flint Hills. U.S. 50 goes through or past: Emporia, Strong City, Elmdale, Cedar Point, Florence, Peabody, Walton, North Newton, Newton, and Burton before getting to Hutchinson.
To tell producers of the show about our Kansas Flint Hills and your community along the way, and nearby, go to: www.highway50.tv, to process nominations. Just go to the Web site and click on “Community” along the top horizontal menu. A nomination form will appear.
Here is another great opportunity to tell our story.
See you in the Kansas Flint Hills! ;-)
