For readers who have been with us for years, you may remember a former administrator who went by the nickname "Balto" (aka SledDog aka SledDogMan). I am both shocked and saddened to hear that our old friend recently passed away.
Condolences to his family and everyone who's life he touched over the years.Kenneth Jacobsen
