Put some work on the back burner today and tomorrow and give yourself some much deserved family time.
We are sad to report that Southern Illinois graduate assistant Cory Warren passed away in a car accident this week. He was only 26. Warren leaves behind his wife, Kris. A scholarship has been set up in his name at Uniontown (KS) High School. Donations may be sent to Konantz-Cheney Funeral Home, 15 W. Wall St., PO Box 309, Fort Scott, KS, 66701. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
