Mystery at Lakeview Cemetery remains unsolved.

You may not know this about your hero (that would be me), but I had to earn money to pay for college (fire up, Chips!). Yup, it’s true. College wasn’t a gift my parents paid for. There were some academic scholarships, some student loans, some financial assistance and my paychecks from working four summers at […]
