July is jumping!
Posted Thursday, July 14, at 3:58 PM

Summertime in the Heartland As the sweltering heat of July presses us all to the sidewalk, life continues in the small town of Advance, Mo., now pop. 1301, according to the latest census.

For a brief time, Advance found itself cut off from the outside world...
