Welcome to the new khmoradio.com. We are excited to be a part of Townsquare Media, and this is one of the new things taking place as a result. And, if you see something you like or don't like, don't hesitate to let us know -- after all, that's the only way we know how we're doing. And, keep coming back, as Bill Shuler and I will be commenting on this/that/and the other periodically during the week.

Yesterday, the news came from authorities in Knox County of the disappearance of young Christin Baucom, who was autistic. Whenever a story like this comes down the line, you pray that it has a happy ending. Unfortunately, this did not. As happens when something like this takes place, searchers from various agencies and many individuals turned out to search for Christin. His body was found around midday in a farm pond a few hundred yards from his home. Our prayers are with the family as they deal with this tragedy.

We're reminded of the conversations we've had on Talk Back with Marlene Rodenbaugh about autism and support that's out there for families dealing with it. If the story of Christin Baucom has prompted you to want to find out more about autism, go to www.shinealightonautism.com and check it out.
