Something that was unclear from the online article. This was the Front Page Headline! A top-line persona we can be proud of.

Strong work, Stimbuck!

Yeah, wow, you're not kidding - they did a nice job keeping the audio PG rated when that slab broke in the video!

And one more recent article on John and his crew inside this issue of a union publication I stumbled on... nice this gets coverage and illuminates the man behind the curtain. Especially for all that we take for granted.  Thanks again John and crew!
