We all Have Them

Don't you hate it when things don't go the way they should? Boo Boos can range drastically in severity. Fortunately, at my gig, about the worst thing that happens is someone forgets to shut off the coffee pot at night.

Here's Hoping No One Was Hurt

A point was made to avoid any photographs showing incidents where someone might have been injured, or possibly worse.

Who's the Photographer?

Robert Grant, a Grand Junction area native, was the chief photographer at the Daily Sentinel from the early 1940s until his retirement in the mid-1980s.
