I was really proud and pleased to be able to create a special retirement award for my friend, Mike McGraw. Mike has been a writer for The Kansas City Star for 30 years. His investigative reporting skills have revealed a variety of problems in our communities, both locally and nationally. This sculpture is made from the very printing press parts that produced his words and stories. These assorted gears and parts now will grace a shelf in his home...a special memory to the connection his words made in our lives. Enjoy.
