    This year the Daviess Coun-ty Fair will honor former North Daviess teacher and coach Bill Slatton.

    Bill was the former North Daviess basketball coach, as well as the coach at Elnora before the consolidation. However, more than that, he was one of the faces of the northern Daviess community. Sadly, Bill passed away this February, leaving a hole in lives of those knew him, but a memory as large as the life he lived.

    Bill original taught and coached at Dubois, before coming to Elnora, just about 50 years ago. From that point on Bill has always been a big part of the school and com-munity.

    In fact, the last group of eighth graders he coached, were seniors this season.

    He would have said being

    honored at the fair was the last thing he would have wanted, but for those who knew him, knew he would have loved it. It is just the kind of person he was. Bill was all about laughing, joking and spending time with friends. He would loved wav-ing at the very people he would taught, coached and spent his life with.

    This year Bills wife Marilyn will honor her husband serv-ing as the Grand Marshal at the parade, starting at 5:30 p.m. Saturday. They were to-gether for 60 years, married for 50.

    I have had so many people come up to me and say Bill was their favorite teacher, Marilyn said. You might say he never met a stranger.

    Here is a column written about Bill shortly after his passing by Todd Lancaster

    managing editor and long-time sports editor:

    A basketball life well lived

    In the time that I have spent at the Times Herald, some of the best of those times were spent with Bill Slatton. Bill, the former long-time basketball coach at El-nora and North Daviess who passed away on Tuesday, was always ready to talk about basketball or just about any-thing else, often punctuated with a big laugh and a boom-ing Now, let me tell you something...

    I was sad to hear the news, but it wasnt hard to quickly move on to the fact that Bill was not about sadness, he was about laughter.

    I often enjoyed Bill talking about basketball back in the

    days of Converse basketball shoes and two-handed set shots. The funny thing is, as much as Bill would reminisce about the good old days, he was still very much active in todays game as well. He

    helped out with North Da-viess middle school program until just recently, sharing his skills and abilities with the players who have made North Daviess one of the most successful programs in

    southwestern Indiana.Bill also loved baseball hav-

    ing played for the Washing-ton Grays and in the Army. As an Army baseball and basketball player, he became a good friend of former Pacer coach and announcer Bobby Slick Leonard. Bill stayed close to him and just a few years ago he and I spent some quality time with Slick at Conseco Fieldhouse. Bill would often give me a little Pacer scoop after a call up to Leonard in Indy.

    The one thing I never did see, was Bill as a coach. How-ever, I was told very early in my time in Washington that Bills 1969 ND team was one of the areas best ever. Steve Fisher who played for Bill that year, said fairness was Bills most important trait as a coach.
