    On your Sunday Morning Show today 8/26 you did a story on a man from Maine being ‘ The Father of Chainsaw art” This is not true.
    If you go back to an old 70’s show “Thats Incredible” my Great Uncle Bob Draper of Mt Pleasant Utah was the 1st and the Grandfather of Chainsaw art.

    Many have picked up a chainsaw and created art since then. But Uncle Bob was the 1st to be recognized.

    A Steve Hartman story on “painting the town.” Town of Gloucester, Ohio.
    Jim Cotter started by painting fire hydrant, guard rail, then houses. Over the last few months, more volunteers. First story aired in May 2012. Since then 260 people showed up and painted 17 houses. Don’t wait on the government, a grant or outside money. The widower has found a fresh coat of purpose. The story is sort of re-cycled, but it is updated.
    Those 260 volunteers were SkillsUSA Members from Ohio. This is a career and technical youth organization that has over 310,000 members which I am proud to say I am an advisor for. I am sorry that CBS didn’t mention this as this is a wonderful orgainzation that needs to be seen in the spotlight more.

    There have been many inspiring and heart-warming stories on Sunday Morning
    for over 30 years.

    Mr. Charles Kuralt appealed to CBS to put on the GOOD NEWS and this was done
    for many years but somehow Sunday Morning is slipping in the regular news.
    If that’s what we wanted we would not set an alarm to get up to watch…
    this morning 9-15-12 the story of a released prisoner suspected of
    child murders. Don’t we get enough of this stuff at other times of the day?
    What a way to start a Sunday Morning! I hope they return to their original
