MHS student benefit Saturday

With his guardian Jerrad Humerickhouse pushing his wheelchair, McLouth High School senior Trevor Roberts receives a standing ovation from the crowd Friday at the school's homecoming after being crowned homecoming king. It was a homecoming for Roberts, too, who was released from Kansas University Hospital earlier in the day after having his left leg amputated above the knee when gangrene infected a compound fracture he suffered in a Sept. 24 football game.
