Mayor secures financing for major North State project
Belhaven University’s Hill Denson recently became the eighth Mississippi baseball coach chosen for induction into the American Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame. And, yes, this is an award that usually comes after a coach retires.
It was Earl Warren, the chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court who once said, “I always turn to the sports pages first, which records people’s accomplishments. The front page has nothing but man’s failures.”
In Mississippi, here lately, we’ve had plenty of accomplishments to read about. On the sports page, that is. To wit:
Super Bowl XX was memorable for many reasons, including that Refrigerator Perry, an overweight defensive tackle, was allowed to score a meaningless late touchdown instead of the late, great Walter Payton, who was playing in his only Super Bowl.
