90-Mile View From The Hill

After her husband died in 1986, June Jewitt continued to live in the house they had built on a hill in Douglas County, Kan., and began writing. One of her daughters slipped a sample of June's views of life under the door of the Baldwin City Signal and a column, Musings from the Hill, was born.

On this edition of 90-Mile View, Steve Kraske talks with the nonagenarian about why she continues to live on the hill, what she most likes to write about, and why she hasn't retired.
