Some of you have been so kind as to tell me you enjoy reading my ramblings and have actually missed my column lately. Thank you, but many times I happily defer to our local legislators or some additional news. Really, what I have to say usually isn't all that important. I would much rather use the space to inform you of local happenings.
While there is still much news that didn't fit in this week, I decided to use a small space for something I feel is important. It is happening right now and needs your support.
West Virginia University Head Mens' Basketball?Coach Bob Huggins is currently in the final four-no, not on the court, that's yet to be narrowed. He is in the final four in an online vote that could net his charity, the Norma Mae Huggins Fund, $100,000. The fund is a cancer research endowment at the Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center at WVU. In other words, it is the place that would treat most of us, our family, or our friends if we were fighting cancer.
People work very hard to raise money to fight cancer. They have bake sales, raffles, Bingos, and the like. Those are all noble efforts and necessary, but they raise little in comparison to the power of just a few clicks of a computer mouse that could net $100,000. On Tuesday night it was nearly a three-way tie for first, with Huggs in the running. Vote daily at www.espn.com/infiniti now through noon on March 8.
