Benton woman survives lightning strike

July 22, 2012

During a thunderstorm on July 6, Benton resident Sharon Witham noticed that a canopy in her backyard was being whipped around. She feared it would blow over toward a neighbor's home, so she dashed out the door, grabbed one of the canopy's metal poles and began to "mash it down."
Witham said it then occurred to her that having metal in her hand probably wasn't a good idea.
"I had that pole in my hand and I thought, 'I better let that go,'" she said. "All of a sudden I saw light out of the corner of my eyes, I was knocked backward and I heard a bang. It sounded like dynamite exploding."

DAVIS: What lies beneath?

"There are known knowns. These are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we know we don’t know. But there are also unknown unknowns. These are things we don’t know we don’t know.” — Donald Rumsfeld

All three of the scenarios so confusingly described by former Secretary of State Rumsfeld were in play before my eyes July 12.
The place — the court of Judge Gary Arnold.
The reason — a motion to quash, or set aside, a requirement to provide information regarding anonymous bloggers.
