Cincinnati State, 6/2/2010 (Greg Greenlee, Ronnie Hash, Frank Hill)

Information Technology: A Full Color Career. Frank Hill was born in Crawford, Mississippi, pop. 691, in the middle of the last century. He remembers spending his early years there in a society that was practical, hard-nosed and self-sufficient. Family and friends raised their own crops, built their own homes, slaughtered their own hogs, made their own clothes. The only time they really needed money, he recalls, was the one time during the year when the tax bill came due.
