KKBN Hard Working Man 02.19.2020

Derrick Jordan Cripe

Derrick is literally the hardest working man I know.

He is a Power Lineman, who travels to recovery projects, honestly not for the increase in pay, but because he wants to help people gain their power and thus part of their livelihood back.

He is a dad of two princesses. He has been known to show up at work with glitter on his clothes, from princess dance parties.

Our family has endured some incredible hardships, such as loosing every material possession to mother nature. He has never quit; he just works hard to keep our family well. Whether that means, extra work hours, long drives to specialists and doctors or showing up to have a family dinner.

Those who work with him, know he has an old school strong work ethic. He wants to work efficiently and put out high quality work.

His girls think the world of him and depend on him.

KKBN Pet Of The Week 02.18.2020

Stella

I would like to submit my kitty Stella for the Pet of the Week.

I rescued Stella as a tiny stray kitten. She is now a 12-year-old special loving kitty.

She mostly wants to be held like a baby and loves a long tummy rub.

She will play with a toy only while watching herself in a mirror.

Stella sleeps on her back with legs up in the air. She is a perfect joy and just wants to be loved

Thank you!

Kim Parker

Grady Hughes  

Grady keeps motivation throughout the week to get up early and drive an hour or so away for work. He works for Teichert as an equipment operator. I don’t know how he does it, but he does his best at it. Working 10 hours a day 5-6 days a week, the fact he can work a long day and still come home with motivation is amazing.

Even with work being slow for the winter he is finding work and staying busy. When he gets home, he still works outside to get things done and usually if there is stuff I want to do, he plays and cares for our 4 month old baby girl.

I’m amazed and grateful for everything he does, he’s a very hard worker and I couldn’t be happier.

Our daughter and I are so lucky to have a man like him.

KKBN Pet of the Week 02.11.2020

Breezer & Buddy

I would like to nominate Breezer for pet of the week. She is like our child.

She loves to go on rides with us in her car seat, she loves her treats, she loves to go shopping with us and she loved her brother Buddy.

Buddy was a wonderful child to us. I called him my “Buddy Guard” because he was. He was a pure breed Schipperke and he literally was next to me everywhere. If someone got to close to me, he would bite the back bottom part of the pants and pull them away from me.

Breezer & Buddy were very close. Unfortunately, someone poisoned Buddy & he went to Heaven.

Whenever we are traveling & we give Breezer a treat she will put the treat in the back seat where Buddy used to sit.

Sincerely,

Anna Marie Walls and Frank Verbeck Sr.

Zeb George

Not only does Zeb work full time at Cal trans but he’s a volunteer fire fighter!

He is also a father of two young boys, Hank (5) and Hudson (1).  They call him GoGo!

He’s a husband, a son, a brother, and a uncle. He’s a loyal family man and a dedicated father on top of being a hard working man. GoGo deserves to be the “Hard working Man” Winner.
