I met Jim in 1976, when I was the new sports editor at Decorah Newspapers and he was the girls’ basketball coach at Decorah High School. We had a great working relationship during the three years I worked on the newspaper. I saw Jim again in 2005, when he was living in Minnesota and had been coaching girls’ basketball at Farmington High School. We met for dinner and enjoyed a long conversation to catch up on the last 26 years. That would be the last time I saw Jim. I visited Decorah last month, and as I drove around the town and thought of the many people I got to know while I was there, Jim was definitely one of them. To Jim’s family, please accept my heartfelt condolences.
