Meat guy

Ken Braithwait searches for meat at Simpson’s AF Super Incorporated grocery store in Wathena, Kansas. He said the store has one of the best meat selections he’s seen.

While browsing the meat counter at his local grocery store, Ken Braithwait can’t help but notice that the cost of hamburger, hot dogs and steaks are rising along with just about everything else.

Asked if that will keep him from firing up the grill on Memorial Day weekend, he remains philosophical.
