Lee was hired as the new Wolves' football coach, replacing John Thompson who stepped down after last season's playoff campaign.

May 19, 2012

After one year as coach of the Talihina Golden Tigers basketball team, Coach Darrick Farriell is moving on.
Farriell will become the new coach of the Stuart Hornets.
“It was a job I had my eye on for a while,” Farriell said. “It's a basketball-baseball school. You get to start playing a month early, and have that much more practice time — unlike a football school. It's a small school. The kids work hard there, and that was something that made me excited.”

My scoop of Mother's Day raspberry ice cream?

May 18, 2012

First of all, I forgot to wish my mother, JoAnn Mattox, and my wife, Jenny, a Happy Mother's Day last week. For some strange reason, I thought Mother's Day was this Sunday instead of last Sunday — I was a week behind.
Sometimes I wonder if my elevator goes all the way to the penthouse? Anyway, Happy Belated Mother's Day, ladies.
FYI — I now keep a huge calendar on the kitchen table, and write everything down so I just don't forget anything any more.
