A good time to eat some crow (03/12/03)
Heading into Tuesday's Class 1 sectional game at Sikeston, I thought I had Clarkton figured out. Great record, weak schedule, overrated team. Boy, was I wrong. How wrong?

SpeakOut 3/12 (03/12/03)
I'm calling about the investigation at Tom Brock's Salvage Yard. It said there were pieces of eight vehicles discovered from 1992-2003. Over an 11-year period they found eight pieces. That's less than one a year. When a salvage dealer buys a wrecked vehicle from insurance, he has no way of knowing if an engine, transmission or any other part of that car may have been replaced from another salvage yard, or whether the parts in this vehicle may have been from a chop shop like they have around the big cities where a lot of vehicles are stolen. ...
