Trudeau began the strip at Yale University in 1968. It was called “Bull Tales” then. He announced earlier this month that the popular daily strip would end in March. He will continue drawing the strip for Sunday newspapers which The Transcript will continue to carry. It’s been quite the ride but like Peanuts and Calvin and Hobbes, all good things must end.
Moore Medical Center plans to break ground on its new facility May 20, the one-year anniversary of the storm that destroyed the hospital.
The temporary facility, much of it recycled from Joplin’s similar hospital fate, began operations in December. It has now served about 3,500 patients.
Recalling the destruction from hindsight, it’s nothing short of a miracle that no patient or staff member lives were lost that day. Some were not at work because they were cleaning up from the storm the day before.
More than 400 employees took shelter in the hospital. Most hunkered down in the cafeteria but about 30 took refuge in the hospital’s small chapel, an area that was hardly altered by the storm.
