A rose to New Hope baseball coach Lee Boyd who frequently deflected credit for the Trojans' back-to-back state Class 5A baseball champions away from himself and to his players. While his players certainly deserve their share of the credit, Boyd's contributions are difficult to dismiss.
A rose to the Market Street Festival, which was held this weekend in downtown Columbus. We acknowledge all who had a hand in making this year's event a success, including Main Street Columbus and director Barbara Bigelow, and her staff, more than 400 volunteers, police/fire personnel, entertainers, organizer Amber Brislin and, of course, visitors.
