Editor's Note

By John Pitts/NEMS Daily Journal

Monday was a difficult day for the Daily Journal sports department and the entire Journal family.

Brad Locke, our reporter assigned to cover Mississippi State athletics, was injured in an auto accident on his way to Starkville in the afternoon. Brad will be on the disabled list for a little while, but he is in good hands.

A little later in the day, we learned of the untimely death of Greg Mcllvain, a sports desk editor who joined our staff in 2006. He was 49.

Arrangements for funeral services are pending at Memphis Memorial Park.

We appreciate your patience, understanding and support in this difficult time.
