Home Town Girl Heads Home

Sheryl Crow, the multiplatinum award winning artist does more than just come home each year.  Locals in Kennett say she is hands on with several city projects including supporting the schools and hospitals.  Her latest interest is a city pool.  Something she says every town Kennett's size should have.

Matt Shetley is working closely with the singer to make sure her dream becomes reality.  He says it will be another summer before the pool is complete but everything is coming together.  Money has already been raised and land was donated by another local family to build the pool.  The city is only waiting for final plans to be drawn up before they begin building.

Brian Mitchell, local pharmacist and the person who donated the land says it is great to have a star like Sheryl Crow concerned about her hometown.  He says the community is lucky to have her.  Adding she does so much for the community behind closed doors.

While Crow heads back to her home town.  Mitchell says it is like she never left.  He says in a small town like Kennett, everyone helps raise everyone's kids.
