Jim Schmidt, Rest in Peace

I was greatly saddened to learn of the passing of Jim Schmidt, the retired first director of Butler County, Kansas, emergency management. Jim literally created the department after the Wichita-Andover Tornado of April 26, 1991. His personality was the rare combination of affability and professionalism.

Here is a story by weather news reporter Stan Finger about Jim and his career. May he rest in peace.
