This is a bit off the thread, but does anyone have any updated information about Hodges Lewis? I heard he wasn't doing too well and was recuperating [sic] at his brother's house in Savannah. Any news?

Hodges is rehabbing from his strokes in a Rehab Hospital in Savannah. He has made some progress but has miles to go to return to self-sufficiency. He can communicate effectively but his paralysis on his left side is proving hard to accommodate.

I have visited with him on 4 occasions since his stroke. I believe he is transferring to another place at the end of next week (Maybe March 18?).

Keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

What was the final score?

Three cheers for the alma mater. We played Dorman A something like 10 times my last two years, winning twice, getting blown out once, and losing all the rest on the last question.

Good to see them finally pull it out.
