    Yup. Throwback great.

    Former Lake County author Kittredge dies in Montana

    William Kittredge, who grew up in Eastern Oregon on his family’s historic MC Ranch near Adel in Lake County and who was regarded by many as the dean of Western writers, died Friday, Dec. 4 in Montana.

    Kittredge, 88, is the author of several books, including his memoir, “Hole In the Sky,” a book edited with Annick Smith, “The Last Best Place: A Montana Anthology,” and books of essays, “Owning It All,” “The Nature of Generosity” and “Balancing Water: Restoring the Klamath Basin,” which was published in 2000 and featured photographs by Tupper Ansel Blake of Dorris and Madeleine Graham Blake of Klamath Falls. (cont)
    I can recommend Last Best Place, an anthology of some of the greatest stories and storytellers of the American West, which he co-edited.

    Among his many honors was a National Humanities Award by then-President Bill Clinton in 1994. Two of his books, “Hole In The Sky” and “Owning It All,” recall his impressions of growing up in southeastern Oregon. He is often critical of his family, himself and damage created by irresponsible ranching and farming.

    ”We thought we were doing God’s work out there,” said Kittredge of life on the MC Ranch. “We found out that some of that ‘big’ ag doesn’t work.” “Hole In The Sky,” in which Kittredge chronicles his personal failures, won the PEN West Award in 1992 for best nonfiction book of the year. He also co-edited “The Last Best Place: A Montana Anthology” in 1988 and co-authored nine novels in the Cord series of Westerns. “Who Won the West” was published in 1996. His novel, “The Willow Field,” was published in 2006.

    I was always disappointed that sports played a very small role, particularly with how sports is so ingrained in our lives. You can always count on some form of literature being a category almost every night.

    I'll take quiz show host for $500 Alex.

    A: This gentleman who was the original host of jeopardy from 1964 - 1975, also died from pancreatic cancer!

    Who is Art Fleming.

    RIP to Celtic great Tommy Heinsohn. He was a part of 10 NBA titles as player & coach. Also, starred in those Miller Lite ads from the 80s & did some analysis work on tv for NBA games.

    You need someone smart, a lifelong learner, and very articulate so they can pronounce some of the words, read the questions well, etc. What made Trebek so great was that he made sure he knew what he was saying.

    Gonna be hard to find someone to replace Trebek. Should be someone distinguished and intelligent, but not completely stuffy.

    I'm thinking Triumph the Insult Comic Dog.

    Pancreatic cancer is a beast. Such a tough organ to access so lots of patients aren’t even eligible for surgery. Only options are Folfirinox or Gemcitabine + Abraxane both of which are brutal. Sounds like he got some great care as he likely beat the median PFS for such patients.

    Former Celtics player and coach Tom Heinson passed. He won a bunch of titles as a player and one or two as a coach.

    I have a hand written recruiting letter from Coach Tubbs he sent me back in '83. At the time, OU had Donnie Gandy from South Bend and Tim McCalister from Gary and I'm sure heavily recruited a couple of my teammates.

    As much as I dislike OU football, I have always liked their basketball team probably because of that.

    RIP Billy.

    It's a testament to Connery they decided to bring him back in '83 for the role, 21 years after he first played Bond and after he had already been replaced twice.

    So many other great films too... loved him in the Indy films.

    I once had the chance to meet Herb Adderley. He was the Honorary Chairman of the Big 33 game in Pennsylvania when Lavar Arrington was a senior and in the game. I happened to swindle some sideline passes. After the game he was just sitting on the bench alone. No one around him. Spent 5-10 minutes shooting the breeze about his playing days. Even let me try on his Super Bowl Ring. Class act.

    Found one of my old 80s mixes a couple years ago back at moms. Surprisingly still sounded decent. Started out with Here I go Again. Also had Hagar's Give to Live, and some Crue. Rocked out while I was cleaning out the garage. Tucked it right back into the box where I found it.
