Hatteberg's People - Fred Smith

Stay up-to-date with KAKE News:

Sunday, April 14, 2013

Viable small Kansas towns are rare. Many main streets are lined with empty buildings, the people long gone, the streets quiet and dusty. Except in Tipton, Kansas.

That's in Mitchell County where people like Fred Smith came back from the big city to make a difference in a small one. Smith is a former Suburban Chicago Police Officer.

Today, he and others are the backbone of Tipton. He runs the local newspaper, the grocery store, the restaurant, and even a car wash.
