    ERICKSON: Giants depart

    Buck Melton passed away last month. Word came to me while I was at a conference and I could not get home for his funeral. He will be sorely missed.

    ERICKSON: Cecil Staton retires

    Back in 2002, I had been dabbling for a while in politics while practicing law. Some friends asked me to help a local area businessman who was running for Congress. His name was Cecil Staton.
