Lightning from storm impacts KLPW

UPDATE: IP phone service and e-mail have been restored to KLPW. Engineer and technicians are on site assessing damage to the transmitter. As capabilities come back online, we will restore the streaming audio and over-the-air signal. Thank you for your patience:

Earlier story: Heavy lightning from Monday night's thunderstorms has caused the station signal to be off the air. This electrical surge has also impacted telephone and e-mail service to the station. We have technicians on site working on the problem.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We hope to be back on the air in full operations sometime today.

Thank you for your patience.

Commencement, it is said, is a beginning. Yet graduations are also the end of an era--for students and their parents. For the kids, it's a time of excitement and promise. For parents, it's a bit more bittersweet.

What will the future hold for the Class of 2015? Time will tell.

My youngest has now graduated from high school. Back in 1980, I was the youngest of my family who graduated.
