FITS Congratulates The Kansan Of The Year!

FITS wishes to offer hearty congratulations to former Tarheel coaching
great and mime artist Dean Smith. Yesterday Smith was honored by the
Native Sons and Daughters of Kansans as The Kansan of the Year. The hotly
contested award, which will be presented on January 26 in Topeka, was last
won by has-been actress Shirley Knight; previous winners include Rupert
Stecht, the inventor of the Ziploc bag, and Jo-Jo The Dog-Face Boy, who has
appeared in numerous circuses and sideshows for the past thirty years.
