Tom Fitzsimmons is the Program Director for Nevada County Broadcasters, and morning show host at KNCO NewsTalk 830, but his favorite job is being husband to Roxanne and Dad to his daughter's Katie and Kelly, and step dad to Tyson and Megan. Tom and Roxanne just became grandparents with the birth of Megan's daughter, Hazel Virginia. Tom also is the voice of High School Football and Basketball play by play. His hobbies include playing and watching all sports and taking long hikes both locally and in the Sierras with his dog, Angel. He also has taken up distance running and just started to get into road cycling.

This has been no vacation!

And this is a wake up call for all.  Remember just about a month ago, Hollie and I hosted a show on fall prevention?  During that show, I shared that I was guilty of not being safe on my ladder.  This past Monday, I fell–HARD!  Broken left elbow, left wrist, destroyed left hand.  Seven hours in surgery and three days ay UC Davis med center.  This accident was totally preventable so please take the time to do those projects at home and work the right way.

So sorry Tom. Was going to stop in this week and look for the station scrapbooks. Maybe I still will. There is now an email account -- KNCOmemories@yahoo.com that people can submit photos, stories, etc. and there contact info if they want to share information for the book. We are just in the early stages, but maybe you can put the above email in your blog or somewhere on the website to encourage former employees to contact me. It sounds like you will have a long recovery -- my prayers are with you. Barbara

I understand when you checked into the Hospital the nurse asked if you were allergic to anything. Your reply should have been; "GRAVITY"!

Get well and hurry back.. you are missed!!
