I’ve been Mr. Fixit today, running errands and fixing things around the house. I just wondered what we did before HGTV or DIY Network. Without them, there’s no way we could not do the simpler repairs around the house. But thanks to them, we can fix things around the kitchen sink or the back yard without having to call to help. But I digress.
Let’s get to your links.
Starting with the North County Times, the paper has an obituary of NBC sportscaster Charlie Jones who died on Thursday.
Larry Stewart of the Los Angeles Times writes a remembrance of Jones.
David Barron of the Houston Chronicle also remembers Jones who started his career in Texas.

Ken McMillan of the Times Herald-Record in New York also discusses Jones’ career.
Dan Caesar of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch talks with Bob Costas about his thoughts on Jim McKay and also writes about Charlie Jones’ death. Caesar also writes about a lawsuit filed by a former sports radio talk show host against his former station.
Jerry Garcia of the San Antonio Express-News says being a third choice of ABC Sports Executive Producer Roone Arledge turned out to be the charm for the late Jim McKay.
Barry Horn writes in the Dallas Morning News about Texas Rangers TV voice Josh Lewin attempting not to make personal atacks on players.
Alan Pergament of the Buffalo News has his weekly sports media column.
And that does it for today.
