Kelton in the News


Josie Bates' boyfriend made the news! Kelton Balka, a licensed plumber working in his uncle's business, has been extremely busy this week, as a cold front has caused pipes to freeze across Knoxville. He was featured on WATE 6, the local ABC News affiliate, to help viewers understand what they can do to keep their water running well during the winter. Check out the video below.

  3. This is good information to know. Being from Santa Barbara we never dealt with such problems. Now that we are in a rural part of Arizona, we realize we need to protect our pipes. Thanks Ellie for this.

  6. What a go Kelton, the man of hour. Those Bates girls seem to attract the best. But, now the Bates are going to expect free house calls for the whole family from Florida to Chi town.

    2. The Bates are not as strict as the Duggars. The hugs are just fine!! The Bates are more spontaneous & fun. They get this from Gil & Kelly who are so friendly & loving to everyone. Love them!!!
