LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —
So now here it is 2013. I’m still here at the Sentinel. Still doing sports. Along the way I have managed to win a few Kentucky Press Association and CNHI awards for writing, photography and design, which is nice. It’s always nice to be recognized by your peers.
But all those awards take a back seat to the plaque Keith Gilbert gave me last Tuesday night, which read, in part, “in recognition and appreciation for covering South Laurel and Laurel County sports.” Thank you, Keith, for doing this, and for the nice things PA announcer Rick Chandler said about me. And thanks to the South Laurel basketball team as they all shook my hand and thanked me.
It’s nice to know that I am appreciated for all the hard work and hours I have put in lo these past 30 years, even though I never expected to be doing this for that long. I am truly humbled.
