HOLLENBECK: Old telephone numbers tell priceless stories of another time, another place

August 22, 2011

Numbers have never been my friend. I embrace words with passion, but numbers are another thing altogether.
Words, their meaning and their usage come to me with little effort, but the same can’t be said for figures, and that would be just about in any form, including old telephone numbers.

Benton’s senior led team is due to the recruiting efforts of a core group of players about four years ago when they were freshman.
