Stow resident Bob Cooke recently took the Stow Independent on safari in Botswana, Africa. After 2 flights of 18 hours each – plus hops in between – he came home with hundreds of photos, some of them even good. He then went to California for an old car club reunion, but couldn’t visit 4 national parks that were closed by our goofy Congress. Visitors who’d flown from abroad were greatly disappointed to find the parks closed.
