Ed Thomas Remembered

I didn't blog anything about the tragedy in Parkersburg because I didn't have anything additional to add to the stories, pictures and tributes that have been in the news. It is an awful situation.
But, homebase passed on an article written by Chuck Offenburger back in 1986 that I thought was really great look at the man and what he was about...even 20 years ago.


  1. He was such a great leader for youth, the town and all of us who read about him after the tornado. He instilled pride, honesty and hard fought competition. A great man who was teaching many youth guys to become great men. He will be missed but very celebrated.

  2. this article was great indeed -- i shared it w/the kids too
