Not Jeff Schools pictured, but close enough
It's no secret that I have been a busy man over the past few months, filling in for Joey P on the Morning Jab, continuing my role on the Weekend Warm-Up, and welcoming a new daughter to make my family grow from 4 members to 5. During that time, things on this site have a changed a bit, and I have been unable to contribute as much as I would like.
Since my daughter has been born, Jeff Schools has basically run this ship like Captain Kirk ran the Enterprise. I don't think he gets enough credit or praise from anyone, myself included, in a public setting. In the past few months he has covered Sea Dogs games, Black Bears stuff, all on a regular basis while being a dad, a husband, and having a very busy day job, all while doing stuff at the station from fill-ins, to board-running, and running the Weekend Warm-Up. Regardless, he's done a hell of a lot more than I have in the past few months, and I wanted to make sure it was duly noted in writing, on the internet, forever.
In another note, I don't think it's fair to refer to myself as the Grand Poobah/Jabba the Hutt of this site and all the other sites on the Maine Sports Network, simply because Jeff does way more than I do. So today, I name Jeff the Publisher/Editor of CMSB Media. It's well-deserved, I wish it paid more, and it's really the only way I have of giving a guy who works so hard some much-deserved recognition. He was the only one crazy enough to share my vision for this site, drag me into podcasting and radio, and has done things I never would have thought of.
So thanks to Jeff, and if you follow him on Twitter (@JeffCMSB), let him know you appreciate the work he does covering local sports in this area. He truly is an every-man, and he does Yeoman's Work.
Thank you Jeff, this place wouldn't run right without you.
