SNIPPETS - The crowd filed out of last week's wrestling match after Smyrna defeated Cape and no one noticed Tyrone Gibbs, the two time 189 state champion that friends called Bad01 (might have come from baby doll). In 1976 and 1977, Tyrone Gibbs never lost a wrestling match. He was just an awesome athlete. As his eyes met mine (he was on my state championship track team) I said,."Yes it's me all right, and it's you, too. We're both just 20 years older." Ronson Burton in- formed me that former Cape wrestling coach Ron Bussey was in the local area last week and stopped by to see former 103- pound state champion Willie Vann. "Willie was just amazed that the former coach sought him out to reminisce about the old days," Ronson said. But that's the way the classy people behave.

"Well your day is passed," they laughed. "You're walking with the wild dogs now." Palm Sunday week- end there will be a fund raising walk held in the memory of the late Robbie Dickson. Please mark Saturday and Sunday on your cal- ender until final plans are formu- lated. Polar Plunge for Special Olympics is Feb. 2.
