Beacon Sports Editor Roger Gilmore, who recently announced his retirement, receives a key to the City of DeLand from Mayor Bob Apgar in a ceremony at The Beacon office in Downtown DeLand. His wife, Mary, looks on. Gilmore, who earned his journalism degree at the University of Florida, has been covering local sports in West Volusia since shortly after his college graduation in 1959, when he started working for the DeLand Sun News on Groundhog Day that year. The veteran sports writer will celebrate his 84th birthday in June.
