AC KGBX/SPRINGFIELD, MO hosted its 16th Annual "Typewriter Toss" for Administrative Professionals Day. 5 contestants were lifted 50 feet into the air where they tossed a computer terminal to a target below. This year's winner, LESLIE BARR, came within 11 inches of the bullseye, and took home a day at the spa, flowers, chocolate goodies, and a paid day off for her efforts. The event received local and national press, including today's FOX NEWS program "YOUR WORLD WITH NEIL CAVUTO."
"We stopped using typewriters back in the late 90's. I think those kinds of antiques are bringing a pretty penny on eBay these days. We use computer terminals, they're a dime a dozen," quipped KGBX PD PAUL KELLEY.
