Paul Karpus
We are nominating Paul Karpus as the Hard Working Man because he is the hardest worker we know! He is a Captain for the CalFire Helitack Crew in Columbia and worked so hard all summer long with very few days off. While working his full-time job he still makes time to come home and work on our new house remodeling it, he is always helping me (his wife) around the house with the household chores, makes time to play with the kids everyday, coach baseball, and work on other peoples homes as well! His son Tyler says, “Daddy works hard all day on the helicopter and still comes home and plays with us!” His daughter Kaylee says, “He works so hard on things for us and he’s so fun!” We love him so much and think he deserves to be the Hardest Working Man this week!

KKBN Pet of The Week(11.24.15)

My name is Louie and I would love to be your next pet of the week! This picture was taken last Christmas. As you can see my dad and uncle dressed me up when my mom wasn’t looking. I wasn’t very thrilled. Anyways… I thought I would tell you a little about myself. I am almost 2 years old now and have a sister named Charolette who never leaves my side. We love to play, hike, swim, go for rides in the jeep, and eat. Basically, anything mom and dad do is what we like to do. I really hope you choose me to be your next pet of the week winner! Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas!
Love, Louie

KKBN Hard Working Man(11.11.15)


I would like to nominate my boyfriend Kenneth Pritchard for the Hard Working Man Contest. Kenny works as a tree climber for Down to Earth Construction and Nursery up in Groveland. He works selflessly to provide for me and his two boys, Joseph and Jacob.  He is a wonderful daddy to his boys and is the greatest man I could ever ask for. We are blessed because of everything he does for us.
Kenny sings along to the Hard Working Man jingle every time  it comes on the radio. I would love for his name to get picked so we could see the huge smile on his handsome face, but most of all I want Kenny to know how much we love and appreciate everything he does for us.

Please pick our Hard Working Man!

Corona’s Cruise Across America: Route 66

New Mexico Route 66


The old Route 66 in New Mexico mostly follows Interstate 40. This picture was taken in Santa Rosa, NM.

New Mexico may be the most forgotten and overlooked state in the entire western U.S.

It takes (seemingly) forever to drive through and almost all of it is rural and remote. It has one of the lowest median incomes in all of the states.

It is the 5th largest state in the USA. It is known for its green chili, Native American culture and Spanish influence.

The Continental Divide also runs through New Mexico, just west of Albuquerque.
