Well damn, Matthew. This is simply fantastic. For me, as the sports editor at a local newspaper in Maryland (yes, we still publish a paper six days a week — and I still design the pages), I loved every bit of this story.

Bravo to Dan D’Addona for his dedication to good, hyper-local journalism, because it is needed, and it is appreciated.

And bravo to Kirk for recognizing Dan and appreciating his work.

I’m also glad to read that Kirk finally ponied up for a Sentinel (online) subscription after all those years of just buying single copies at the gas station.

We won’t survive without those subscribers.

Folks:

READ YOUR LOCAL NEWSPAPER.

I just realized that a family friend worked at that school during Kirk's high school years. Don't know why I never made that connection before.
