As the longtime former publisher of the Daily Pilot, I would offer my full support of the naming of the press box at Davidson Field at Newport Harbor High School for former Sports Editor Roger Carlson. Roger was tireless in his commitment to reporting on the Newport-Mesa athletic achievements of our children. I would add that I am certain that those who worked with him and for him would fully agree. He truly was one of a kind.
Finally, an associate's degree!
I want to offer my congratulations to Maria Saldana ("It's been a 17-year educational journey for Maria Saldana," May 25). Her story was remarkable in that it can be very hard to remain focused and have the tenacity and perseverance to accomplish your goals under any circumstances, but especially difficult when you don't have "cheerleaders" in your family circle on your side, supporting your efforts. I hope she enjoys every good feeling her accomplishment brings and that her family celebrates and honors her strength.
