Thanks, Rusty. “A lot of readers” may be wishing for a reversal soon! — DM
Nice column. Good to see you’re writing again — I’ve missed it down here in South Carolina!
Keep it up.

John, thank you, now send some South Carolina sunshine to these parts ASAP, please! — DM
Great to see your words again in print, er, I mean on the Star Beacon website.
Hope all is well in the homeland...

Thanks, Tom. — DM
I read the article, and it was a great story about an outstanding individual, written by an outstanding person.
It brought back memories for me that I enjoyed.
Thank you for a great story.
Lib, as a former high school official yourself, I’m not surprised you like those words. Thank you. — DM
This is the Don McCormack writing we all love and miss. Coach Bowler has done a great job with the Edgewood boys.
What’s more important to me is the class act those guys are in the classroom and throughout the entire school system.
It is infectious, and you can’t measure that!
Barb, thanks so much. — DM
On Linette Derminer
I was there that day at practice it was scary. I’ve known Ken since we were kids and used to share a locker with him in 5th grade. God bless Mrs. Derminer for beginning this foundation to ensure safety for students during sports.
Miss you, Ken.
Becca, my heart goes out to you, too. That had to be the most difficult of days for everyone present at the tragedy. — DM
You’ve definitely made my mornings a little bit better the past few days. Thanks.
Beyond my appreciation for you columns appearing again, I also appreciate the efforts to supply AED units for high school athletes. My son plays lacrosse, occasionally in goal. Since I have seen articles detailing this type of risk, having these units available really does help alleviate some of the worries associated with watching him play.
