This is the debut edition of our new series of stories airing Tuesday nights on Black Hills Fox News at 9 called "Along the Way".
In this first edition we share the story of a Black Hills woman's pursuit to become a Doctor.
In recent years, technology and other pass times have pushed comic books from 'center stage' to 'back stage'.
But not everybody has given up on comic books.
In fact 78 year old Ray Brown of Rapid City has built quite a collection.
It's a small town that's known both boom and bust.
And *now* they have their own little brewery.
It's a taste of new life---sprouting from an old vacant building.
We found it "A Long the Way" in the Northern Hills.
As a child we all have dreams.
They are the seeds from which hope grows into reality.
And make no mistake, it usually happens one frame at a time.
Take for example an aspiring freelance cartoonist we met "A Long the Way" in Lead.
A Native American Flute player is set to have the biggest year of his musical career.
He has at least 150 appearances planned this summer, including as a regular performer at the Crazy Horse Monument, and as the opening act for Brule's shows in Hill City.
Tension between Native Americans and Whites has been a Black Hills reality since the late 1800's.
And with that come accusations that the mostly white Rapid City Police Department is biased.
In this story we share the perspective of one Officer we met "A Long the Way", in Rapid City.
