My former student Alicia Bradley, now a sophomore at Diamond High School, has an interesting regular feature on her block (which can be found at called "Search Me Sundays."
In that feature, she examines what search engine entries people use to reach her website.
I don't know if I will make a regular feature of this, but it appears people are taking some fascinating paths to reach The Turner Report.
Out of my last 20 visitors via search engines, five of them came looking for information about former KODE-TV 5, 6 and 10 p.m. news anchor Malorie Maddox.
Two others must be looking into the continuing adventures of McDonald County pastor Robert Joos since they were seeking information on his Sacerdotal Church of David.
Others were researching Nancy Cruzan; Tom O'Sullivan, the late founder of O'Sullivan Industries; another former KODE anchor Tracy Turner; Missouri Representative Cynthia Davis, who is sponsoring a bill that would require the teaching of intelligent design as well as evolution; former KODE sports anchor and news director Erik Schrader; former Joplin Police Chief David Niebur; and the most interesting one, someone was seeking information on the subject "Matt Blunt and pornography."
Just two more days to go until Christmas vacation for the Joplin R-8 Public Schools. My students are taking their final essay test of the first semester today, while my Journalism Club students are meeting after school to complete their assignments before the break.
I am looking forward to some rest, relaxation, research, and writing, and hopefully to making a few minor changes in this website, which are designed to increase its value to the readers.
