Marysville Swimming Pool May Not Be Ready for the Big Blue BBQ and Car Show

It does not appear the Marysville City Pool will be open for the events during the first weekend of June. The Big Blue BBQ and the Car Show have both brought large crowds to the downtown area and to the pool. Carrathurs Pool Company plans to begin painting the pool soon, but could not give a completion date to the Marysville City Council during Monday night’s Council Meeting.

Wyatt Thompson to Receive Sportscaster of the Year Award

The Kansas Association of Broadcasters has selected Wyatt Thompson, Voice of the K-State Wildcats, as the Hod Humiston Award winner for 2011.  The Award is named for Hod Humiston of Hutchinson, (now deceased) who was the first television sportscaster in Kansas for KTVH (now KWCH TV) in Wichita.  The KAB established the award in Humiston’s honor in 1979, to recognize broadcasters who have made significant contributions to sports broadcasting.

Thompson is in his ninth year as the play-by-play voice of the Kansas State Wildcats. He started his broadcast career in 1976 covering high school sports at stations in Abilene, Goodland, Great Bend and Hays.  In 1984, he replaced former Hod Humiston winner Bob Davis as the play-play voice of the Fort Hays State Tigers at KAYS radio in Hays.  In 1989, he moved to Colorado to join the broadcast team at Colorado State and spent five years as the play-by-play voice of Rams football and basketball.

Thompson has previously earned a first place in sportscast play by play from the KAB, as well as the Colorado Broadcasters Association.  He was named the Oscar Stauffer Sportscaster of the Year from the Kansas State High School Activities Association in 1989.

He will receive his award at the annual KAB Sports Seminar held at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City May 4th.  (A list of previous recipients can be found below)

The KAB is a statewide trade association serving a membership of free-over-the-air radio and television broadcast stations.

Athletic Officials Honored For Dedication & Service

Each year, the Kansas State High School Activities Association recognizes and honors a select group of contest officials for their dedication and service to Kansas interscholastic athletic programs. The KSHSAA Official Recognition program started in the 1999-2000 school year to honor officials who have contributed significant years of service.  Award plaques are given for 20, 30, 40 and 50 years of service to the youth and schools of Kansas. Officials reaching these milestones are recognized at a ceremony in conjunction with a state championship event.
Each school year approximately 4,000 men and women, including some high school students, become KSHSAA registered athletic officials. The Association registers officials in 10 of the 14 sports it sponsors. Officials at interscholastic athletic events not only provide for a fair and safe contest environment but also play an important role as participants in the educational development of high school students.
The KSHSAA was pleased to recognize these special individuals for their years of study, preparation, sacrifice of personal time, and most of all, their enduring commitment to the schools and youth of Kansas.
