By

I was recently asked what makes a good interview?  I thought of 5 things that probably make an individual a good interviewer.  They are: 1.  Be yourself and don’t try to copy someone else’s style.  Not everyone is a Marty Brennamen. 2.

When Batesville and Milan played their annual “Bell” game, both teams were missing their top running backs.  Michael Thompson of Milan, I understand, has an ACL injury and is probably out for the season.  This is not only a blow to the Milan football fortune, but a sadder end to a great high school...
