A new year is often about looking back as well as looking ahead. We at TN Crossroads have a quarter century's worth of memories since we turned the lights on in October 1987. Some of our most revered recollections were provided by the late Jerry Thompson. He was here at the beginning and proved to be a gifted storyteller on television as well as in print media. In fact, we've put together several examples of that special storytelling for this special tribute.
