Inhaltsangabe: Things I Have Saw and Did-the title derived from a grammatically challenged sports officiating friend-is a compilation of some 250 stories gleaned from Danny Andrews's diverse life experiences. He has been a journalist, including 39 years of column, news, feature and sports writing for The Plainview, Texas, Daily Herald; sports broadcaster, sports official and basketball magazine publisher; involved in a variety of community organizations; an active Christian layman; and, for the past eight years, the alumni director at his alma mater, Wayland Baptist University. The stories include his family; growing-up years in Plainview; longtime friends and chance encounters with celebrities; experiences in school and Wayland; playing, officiating, reporting on, and broadcasting sports; interesting Herald and Hearst newspaper colleagues and experiences; faith, church and mission ventures; and a collection of miscellaneous tales. Andrews says he's been "Thinking Out Loud" (the title of his Herald column for 28 years and his musings for the Wayland alumni magazine) since his formal journalism career began almost 50 years ago. He brings his subjects to life with vivid detail, humor and pathos, hoping to foster in readers memories of their own similar experiences, to take them vicariously to meet with presidents in the White House, confront cantankerous newspaper readers, share humorous glimpses of sports officiating and broadcasting, relate tales that prove this is a small world after all and, perhaps, encourage their own faith journey.
Über den Autor: Danny Andrews, 66, was born in San Antonio but has been a resident of Plainview, Texas, since the age of nine months. He graduated from Plainview High School in 1967 and Wayland Baptist College in 1972, working on student newspapers at both institutions. He spent 39 years at The Plainview Daily Herald, including eight years as sports editor, then 28 years as just the third editor in the paper's history. He was the longest-tenured editor in The Hearst Corp. when he left The Herald in 2006 to become Director of Alumni Development for Wayland. The Herald won numerous press association honors during his tenure, as did Andrews, mostly for columns he wrote twice weekly as editor. He has experience as a sports broadcaster, basketball magazine publisher, and sports official. He is a member of the Panhandle Press Hall of Fame, Wayland Athletic Hall of Honor, and the Plainview Circle of Honor. Andrews, named Plainview's Man of the Year in 1995, was president or chairman of the Chamber of Commerce, United Way, Bulldog Booster Club, Salvation Army Advisory Committee, and Noon Optimist Club. He is a deacon, adult men's Sunday school teacher, and member of the Worship Choir and the Evangelism Committee of First Baptist Church in Plainview, facilitator for the Coaches Outreach Bible Study at Wayland, and member of the Living Water Emmaus Community. He and his wife Carolyn, executive assistant to Wayland President Dr. Paul Armes, have been married for 45 years. They have three adult children and four grandchildren.
