This is a drawing that accompanied the retirement story I wrote for the paper nearly 24 years ago about Buck Turnbull.
I came to the paper in August, 1959 and felt privileged to work from that time om with Buck until he left the sportswriting profession in September,1993.
I was honored to fight the news battles alongside Buck, a very nice person and a talented writer.
Buck and I edited and wrote sports stories during the paper's golden age.
In my opinion, the newspaper business will never again be as good as it was in the the last half of the 20th century.
Buck died Friday night at 88 years of age.
I'll miss him a lot.
