There’s no 5×8 today. I’m on the road today. Nate Minor will be your host later in the morning.
I’m traveling to Hendricks, MN today to meet Gary and Sherri Johnson, who responded to an attempt to close their school system a year ago by doing the only thing they could: pitching in.
You’ll meet them later in the week with another installment in the You Should Meet series. Maybe you know someone pitching in in some fashion. Tell me about them.
I’ll see you tomorrow.
