Sharing memories with "the master"


Norm Clarke gave me my first break in journalism when he hired me, at age 17, as a weekend sports clerk at the Billings Gazette. All these years later, as a famed columnist for the Las Vegas Journal-Review, Norm doesn’t hesitate to make time for me and others who’ve been part of his life over the years. Here, we pose for a picture after Norm came home to Montana again – to deliver the commencement address today (5/3/14) to graduates of Montana State University – Billings. Again, huge thanks, Norm, for opening the door to a lifetime of opportunities to a fellow kids from Terry, Montana!
