Blast from the past

Some businesses on Computex Drive in Jessamine County burned this morning after an explosion. Investigators are still on the scene.

While this in itself is newsworthy, I suppose (I don’t actually know where Computex Drive is, nor was I involved in any way with the four businesses that were destroyed in the blaze), the real reason I’m mentioning this is because of the officer mentioned in the article.

John Branscum.

Wasn’t he, like, my D.A.R.E. officer back in 5th grade?

(Actually, wasn’t he also our next door neighbor for awhile?)
