Kiamichi All-Star Classic communication gaffe penalizes local athletes

June 9, 2012

I spent Memorial Day Weekend in Enid, helping my soon-to-be 86-year-old mother decorate the graves of our family and friends. We did 21 graves on a very humid Saturday morning before Memorial Day.
While I was putting flowers on the graves and sweating puddles of perspiration, I got a phone call from a local athlete's parent — Kim Standridge, whose son Austin, was on Cameron's baseball team.
I had put a preview story in the May 26 edition as an advance for the 40th Kiamichi All-Star Classic with the names of our local athletes who made the softball, baseball and basketball teams.
