Mary Garber Dies

We're very sorry to report that Miss Mary Garber, the extraordinary reporter from the Winston-Salem Journal, has died at the age of 92.  She was a superb though tiny reporter who brought a footstool to interview basketball players. She was a traiblazer in many respects and dies with immense respect, love, and gratitude not just from North Carolina but from around the nation.  There can never be another like her.

As it turns out, she was very close to Coach K and Bob Knight, and the link below is pretty interesting. And speaking of those two, Coach K presented Knight at his induction into the West Point Hall of Fame.  Presumably the favor will be returned shortly.
