A life turned 'round, Part II

Editor's note: Robert Bruce is Hoisington's newest city council representative. His journey to becoming the kind of man who chooses to take part in civic life took a tragic turn early on, one that led to a conviction of involuntary manslaughter after a drunken driving incident, time served in prison, and the choice to give up alcohol. Today, he is working to make his community a better place. Here is the second in a two-part series.

A life turned 'round: Part one

Editor's note: Jails are filled with people who have committed crimes that ended tragically in ways the perpetrators never intended. Drunken or distracted driving accounts for thousands of deaths each year. For those involved, the consequences are far reaching, often with overwhelming guilt on the part of the person who was driving drunk. For some, it marks a turning point in their lives, and they begin the long process of dealing with their addiction and building a better life. This is the first in a two-part series of one Hoisington man's story.
