  • Bits, pieces, random musings about grace

    It seems the older I get, the less space I have in my brain, like all the file folders in the filing cabinet are full.
    More often than I care to admit, I’ll write myself a quick note intending to develop it into a column later, but when later comes I’ll have no clue what I was thinking when I wrote the note.
    However, all is not hopeless, as occasionally I go through my folder of assorted notes and cobble together a column of bits and pieces and random musings in the hope that something might be helpful to someone.

    It was not a surprise to Justin Downer when California guard Jemarl Baker got a scholarship offer from Kentucky earlier this month — or that he accepted it.
    “He is a kid that is very confident in his abilities,” said Downer.
    Downer is an assistant coach for Earl Watson Elite — the team Baker played for on the Under Armor circuit last summer and made a league-best 41 three-pointers.
