  • Kendall resigns as Harrison County athletic director

    Thursday, June 2, Lee Kendall resigned as Harrison County athletic director effective July 1, 2011.  
    Kendall said that there was no single reason for his resignation only that he was simply tired. Tired of many things, both mentally and physically, that the job requires.  
    “Many thanks to Rosemary Whitaker and Brad Allison,” Kendall said. “I can’t imagine doing this job without Rosemary; she is the best. It’s my hope that Brad will be given the opportunity to replace me if he wants the job.”

  • What a difference a year makes

    I am writing this on the anniversary of D-Day, June 6, 1944, and want to stop for a minute and thank all of the veterans and current military people who are keeping us free from external harm. We do enough harm to ourselves without having outside influences attacking us. Thanks to all of you.
    It is also the 35th anniversary of our oldest daughter’s birth and thus a very special day for Patti and me. There is more to the story, but not for this column.
