Throughout his life, Itawamba County native Willie “Butch” Steele has been quick to help others, including trips throughout the country to serve after various natural disasters. After Steele was diagnosed with leukemia during the summer, he was on the receiving end, as Internet friends from across the United States recently traveled to his home to help him finish cutting wood for his sawmill customers. Daily Journal reporter M. Scott Morris (4:51) chronicled Steele’s story in Sunday’s paper and joins Brad and guest host Chris Kieffer to talk more about it. Also on today’s show, Bobby Harrison (10:34) discusses lagging state revenue collections, Zack Orsborn (22:46) tells about new iPad kiosks at local hotels, and Brad (27:11) breaks down this week’s crime reports.
