Tuesday - May 27, 2014

Tuesday, May 27 was the 41st anniversary of a tornado that devastated Jonesboro residences and businesses in 1973. This past Tuesday at the weekly meeting of the University Heights Lions Club,, member Curt Hodges shared his recollections of that tornado and a deadly storm that killed 34 and injured more than 300 a few years earlier on May 17, 1968.

Hodges was a reporter for KAIT-TV in 1968 and a reporter for The Jonesboro Sun in 1973.

The meeting was called to order at 6:45 a.m. by Lame Duck President Robert Bahn. Lame Duck Tail Twister Brad Baker did his stuff and Bahn, Badge 7 won the pot drawing and the windfall that goes along with that honor. Song leader was Baker, Baker led the pledge and the pledge - a virtual one-man band.
