  • Sports Talk: Bohonak wore many...

    The just passed Memorial Day weekend took on a little deeper meaning for me.
    Each Memorial Day, we should, at some point during the long weekend, take time to reflect on those who served and those who gave the ultimate sacrifice in defending our country and the freedom we enjoy each day.
    Over the weekend, I found myself reflecting on our noble neighbor Mike Bohonak, as good a man you would want to know and call a friend.
    Mike, after a long illness, died in a Pineville area hospital earlier this month, fittingly a week prior to the Memorial Day weekend.
