Monte Yoho on the bus

Look closely in the mirror and you […]

Goodbye Rich Hill

Henry Paul and the members of BlackHawk are seen here waiving goodby to the large and enthusiastic crowd at the end of a Fourth of July performance in Rich Hill, Missouri. A street banner said Rich Hill is famous for its Fourth, and I can see why. The town’s population increases tenfold for the Independence […]
