So she found him, they talked...but it was distance, time and money keeping the two long-lost siblings apart...the Contest. KSTAR had a radio contest in 1989...where a listener would write a letter on why they should have a loved one flown in to the Grand Valley for Valentines Day...Kathy Wrote a heartfelt letter ...and you guessed it...She won the Contest.
