This week on the 40/40 project, we meet a little boy who's had to learn the hard way how true that is. Gabriel Wilcox was born in February, and on the way home from the hospital, survived a car crash that took the lives of his entire family. Now being raised by his grandmother, Gabriel's gotten help from neighbors all over the Eldon region, as we hear as we talk with Angela Wilcox at an event to raise money for her grandson. It's really true what they say about Missourians, they help out their neighbors when need arises.</p><p><object height="300" width="400"><param name="flashvars" value="offsite=true&amp;lang=en-us&amp;page_show_url=%2Fphotos%2F68108720%40N07%2Fsets%2F72157630653104832%2Fshow%2F&amp;page_show_back_url=%2Fphotos%2F68108720%40N07%2Fsets%2F72157630653104832%2F&amp;set_id=72157630653104832&amp;jump_to="><param name="movie" value="http://www.flickr.com/apps/slideshow/show.swf?v=109615"><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"><embed allowfullscreen="true" flashvars="offsite=true&amp;lang=en-us&amp;page_show_url=%2Fphotos%2F68108720%40N07%2Fsets%2F72157630653104832%2Fshow%2F&amp;page_show_back_url=%2Fphotos%2F68108720%40N07%2Fsets%2F72157630653104832%2F&amp;set_id=72157630653104832&amp;jump_to=" height="300" src="http://www.flickr.com/apps/slideshow/show.swf?v=109615" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="400"></object></p><p> Tue, 11 Sep 2012 20:06:03 +0000 Darren Hellwege 20955 at http://kbia.org KBIA Visits Eldon, Missouri KBIA Visits Lake Ozark, Missouri http://kbia.org/post/kbia-visits-lake-ozark-missouri <p>The 40-40 project visits Lake Ozark, which isn't just a fun place to visit for a vacation but is home to a lot of fine people, including a store owner who tells us why she went from spending only the summer tourist season at the Lake to becoming a full time resident of Lake Ozark.</p><object height="300" width="400"><param name="flashvars" value="offsite=true&amp;lang=en-us&amp;page_show_url=%2Fphotos%2F68108720%40N07%2Fsets%2F72157630452052678%2Fshow%2F&amp;page_show_back_url=%2Fphotos%2F68108720%40N07%2Fsets%2F72157630452052678%2F&amp;set_id=72157630452052678&amp;jump_to="><param name="movie" value="http://www.flickr.com/apps/slideshow/show.swf?v=109615"><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"><embed allowfullscreen="true" flashvars="offsite=true&amp;lang=en-us&amp;page_show_url=%2Fphotos%2F68108720%40N07%2Fsets%2F72157630452052678%2Fshow%2F&amp;page_show_back_url=%2Fphotos%2F68108720%40N07%2Fsets%2F72157630452052678%2F&amp;set_id=72157630452052678&amp;jump_to=" height="300" src="http://www.flickr.com/apps/slideshow/show.swf?v=109615" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="400"></object><p> Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:59:43 +0000 Darren Hellwege 20954 at http://kbia.org KBIA Visits Lake Ozark, Missouri Extricating Young Gussie (Wodehouse) http://kbia.org/post/extricating-young-gussie-wodehouse <p></p><p>The adventure that brought Bertie and Jeeves to America; uniting young and old lovers on the vaudeville stage.</p><p> Fri, 07 Sep 2012 20:05:26 +0000 Darren Hellwege 23819 at http://kbia.org Mizzou keeps DT Richardson out of media day http://kbia.org/post/mizzou-keeps-dt-richardson-out-media-day <p>Missouri held talkative defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson out of media day Monday after the player's remarks about Georgia and the SEC in general.</p><p>After a question about whether he’d watched any of the Georgia game, this is how Richardson responded:</p><p>“I watched that game – turned it off, too," Richardson said.
