Growing up during the mid/late 1980's, I loved basketball more than anything else. I always enjoyed watching guys like Jeff Parker, Terry Clark, Scott Jones and Del Feighner. They were all nice guys who played hard and provided more than a few memorable hardcourt highlights.

In the classroom, I'd say Bill Moran was by far the best teacher I've ever had. He was a genuinely funny and smart guy who always told great stories. His schoolboy recollections of his years at Omaha Holy Name were some of his finest moments.

My favorite coach was probably Skip McMaster. I'm certain I was probably the worst baseball player he'd ever had the displeasure to coach, but he always had useful advice and encouraging words for me. He managed to make it fun, in spite of my constant failure. He was a class act, and his first priority was that his kids all have fun.

All my elementary school teachers. They wore such pretty dresses and smelled like perfume. Read to us and made me very fond of books.

Mrs. Bennett was a great teacher, I had her and so did my sons they were lucky. Does anyone remember Mr. Artist from High School? Those were the days.

Does anyone remember Dorcas Cavett, the math lady on educational television? We always called her "Nutcups" because that's what she counted with. She always put me to sleep and I never understood what she was talking about. I found out years later that she was Dick Cavett's mother. I loved all my grade school teachers (except one, Faye Matthews, a shrewish witch if there ever was one) and can still remember all their names.

Marty Hayes was a great second baseman. I remember a diving stab he had. So Marty would be my hero, and the man now skills the guitar.

My friends were my heroes back then. They were witty, smart, and from diverse backgrounds. We would have terrible fights one day and be best friends again the next. I haven't seen most of them in many years. I miss them. It's funny that I see us in many of the young people in town today, and I have a little twinge of sadness every once in a while.

That is strange, Common Sense Doctor. Faye Matthews was my very favorite gradeschool teacher. Our friendship continued to the end of her life.If I remember correctly, you also hated Jack Kent. I see a strange pattern going on here~~~~~~~~~~~

Mr. Oliver was the best coach and teacher I ever had. He wasn't just that, he was also someone you could talk to about lame high school life. How many adults do you know that would sit around and listen to kids talk about petty problems. Thanks for listening and caring Oli!
