I'm so proud of my Godchild who has just completed his dissertation, Stakeholder in the Family Firm, and will graduate from Mississippi State University with a Doctorate of Philosophy in strategic management. His research focused on entrepreneurship and family businesses. He holds an assistant professor faculty position at the W. Frank Baron School of Business at Wichita State University in Kansas, where he teaches strategic management. He is a 1996 graduate of St. Aloysius High School here in Vicksburg and is the son of Charles and Jeanette Ring. Jeanette has been my best friend since back in the early seventies and we have remained the closest of friends through the years. Jeanette and her husband have raised three fine young men. Congratulation John Kirk!
A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter

Bob Phillips came up the other day with a photo of his wife Marian and a deer she got on Brown's Point New Years Eve. The deer was an 8-point with 16 inches of inside spread that weighed in at 190 pounds. A nice trophy in anyone's book. However, the tale Bob told is that this was Marian's fourth deer this year and he claimed that he would have done better than he did if he had not spent so much time hauling Marian's deer out of the woods. Come off it, Bob. We all know who the hunter was.
