Ed. Note: Gary Dick here (the Longmont, CO one–not the Gary you may know of Dick Construction). I wanted you to meet Shannon Dick, founder of GC Journal. Many of you know Shannon from out and about Garden City. I know him as my son, a great father to his three daughters, Owner and Lead Analyst for Western Kansas Statistical Lab, a passionate ice/inline hockey player, a great brother to his two sisters, a great husband for his wife, Nicole, and one of the new forces in Garden City and Western Kansas. You also may have known his grandfather, Robert Fuller-from whom Shannon likely got his people skills, love of people, and love of Garden City. I noticed in helping edit Garden City Journal that Shannon maintains a low-key presence in the Journal–you know how it goes, the photographer is always behind the camera, never in the photo-that type of thing. I wanted to give him a moment in front of the camera.
Here’s Shannon, #19, doing what is is favorite passion in an ice hockey tournament vs. the Pueblo Heat.
