  • Sports Talk: Clyburn deserving...

    I easily recall that memorable Sunday morning at First Presbyterian Church some years back when Sarah Crolley told me her husband Don Crolley was going into the Lancaster County School District Hall of Fame.
    “It’s about time,” was my quick reply forgetting for a moment I was at church that Sunday when I was ushering.
    I felt the same when news of the induction of Ernie Clyburn was recently announced.
    Ernie, well as I first knew him, “Mr. Clyburn,” is most deserving of the honor.
