Pt. 3: Eye Appeal

The mood shifts again as the beautiful Yolo meets the staff of the Freedom Clarion. Mitzi McCoy had met Yolo while travelling to Fez with her father, and now the McCoys are hosting Yolo during her stay in Freedom. Meanwhile, Jerry has built a fine stage for Yolo’s dance performance. The benefit for a new waterfront park promised to be the town’s social event of the season.

The tension mounts quickly as an agitated and evidently left-handed Stub clobbers Jonas. A temporary open-air dressing room gives an intimate view of Yolo as she readies for her performance and disaster strikes as some of Yolo’s jewelry goes missing.

  1. Kreigh Collins, the author of Kevin the Bold was a friend of the family. I was just looking through some old photos and found a photo of him. If you’d like it (not asking for anything) I’d be glad to send it along. We had a boat in Charlevoix, Michigan and he and his wife would occasionally stop in up there. I learned to knit left handed from his wife when I was a young child. The photo can’t be any older than 1971 but I suspect it’s more like 1969.

    1. Hello, and yes! I’d love to see the photo. I’m currently working on a book about Kreigh’s “Mitzi McCoy” comic, and am searching everywhere for stories, photos, etc. Thank you also for sharing the story about Teddy (my “gramma”); she knit some beautiful sweaters for my two boys when they were toddlers. You might also be interested in seeing an artist appreciation page I started on facebook: My mailing address is Brian Collins, 218 Grove Street, Montclair, NJ 07042. Thank you so much!
