Life of Darci Heiskell: This is a tough one. I attended the service for Darci Tuesday afternoon for the former Amarillo Globe-News employee. Darci was a live wire, always wanting to be the best, and she was so creative with I Lassoed Lance videos. No doubt, Darci touched live. A lot of lives. She will be dearly missed. RIP, Darc.
Dr. Michael C. Johnson: The former Tascosa and Randall band director/counselor - and owner many other titles - photographed and attended his 37th Indy 500 on Sunday. That’s an impressive run. And his photos, as usual, are amazing. Go find them online.
Jeff Timmons: The Amarillo High baseball coach has the Sandies on yet another playoff roll. Amarillo High is the Region I-5A finals starting Thursday and remember is just two years removed for a state appearance. Nicely done, Coach Timmons.
Best of Panhandle Banquet: I want to give a shoutout to the award winners at the Best of Panhandle Banquet. The evening was a special treat. The overall winners of Nazareth High for Program of the year (accepted by coach Eric Schilling), Boys athlete Jake Merrell of Valley High, Girls athlete Kyra Lair of Canyon, Girls coach of the Jeff Williams of Amarillo High girls basketball (he was absent due to helping coach AHS baseball), and Boys coach of the Year Aron Graves of West Texas High boys basketball each did a nice job in their acceptance speeches.
NBA Finals: Yawn. Cleveland and Golden State again.
Playing in this heat: I think all sporting event should not be postponed on days where the heat reaches 100 degrees.
Stanley Cup and NBA Finals: The NHL and NBA regular seasons last forever. So why would these two play their finals on the same week and fight each other for ratings? Idiots.
