6A--The Malakoff News, Thursday, June 9, 1983 By Benny Rogers ( Vacation greetings Dear Loyal Readers, I'm coming to you today from Vacation City, USA. In all reality, by the time your eyes ponder these lines I'll probably be doing one of two things: Relaxing in my rocking chair watching the College World Series on cable TV or four putting on the fourth green at a local golf course. One thing I've learned since getting into this business on a full-time basis is that the newspaper business is like no other. How many other businesses do you know that gives you a vacation and yet asks you to work? Typical questions directed my way last week were: "Will you have us any copy for the sports page next week" or "Are you going to come in a write a story and cutlines for the Rebel softball tournament?" The one I really liked was, "Are you going to make a list of all the stories you'll have for us next week?" Oh well, just part of the job, I guess. Vacations for sports editors or few and far between. Although most feel that SE's are on vacation most of the time. An unwritten rule for sports editors is that you can take a vacation anytime ... As long as it's not during the school year. What that really means is SE's can take a vacation in June or July. So we usually take one week in both months. Don't expect a letter in July. I think it's pretty safe to say that most people view the sports editor's job as all fun and games. Well, that statements half right anyway. It is a lot of games. From August to May it's nothing bat games. And there is fun involved, but there's also a lot of deadlines, a lot of hours and a lot long days. The job does have its advantages, though. There's the opportunity to work closely with a bunch of super coaches and their athletes. In this day and time when were hear so much bad about the youth of today it's refreshing for this scribe to watch a group of at),letes dedicate themselves to a common goal. And when that goal is achieved tbzre's nothing quite like it anywhere. It's strange, but as tired, both mentally and physically, as I was at the con- clusion of baseball season i found myself anxiously awaiting the beginning of the 1983 football season. But '.hat's just typical for a sports editor, I guess. I've often heard we live for the next season. Perhaps there's some truth to that. I am anxiously lookL, lg forward to the 1983-84 school year. It could very well be a banner year for Malakoff High School athletic teams. The foundation for a solid athletic program has been poured and now it's time to put the walls up. And I'm looking forward tc being there for every touchdown, 20-foot jump shot and homerun. You see, I'm suddenly ready to go. Oh well, guess I'd better go, the first week of vacation is almost over.
