Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down

UP: To the late Bob Zide, innovator and founder of Zide's Sport Shop in Marietta, for his induction into the National Sporting Goods Association Sporting Goods Industry Hall of Fame. Zide, who founded his business in 1948, spent 45 years, not just selling athletic gear, but making sure athletes-especially the ones on the high school level-had equipment that kept them as safe as possible. Among his many innovations, he was the first dealer in the country to individually fit helmets and shoulder pads on players for football teams in West Virginia, Ohio and Pennsylvania, something that is now common practice. This was a well-deserved honor and we are happy members of his family were able to attend the ceremony held Tuesday at the Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort and Spa in Indian Wells, Calif.
