Editor’s note: Tom Cason, Stillwell, recently approached the Register about a piece he had written about a young man from southeast Kansas who became a skeet shooter sensation in the 1970s. Perhaps his meteoric rise to fame at so young an age left him ill-prepared for life. but Tony Joe West, whose mother, Mary Louise West Henry, age 90, resides in Yates Center, made a brief, though spectacular, impact on the sport.

By training, Cason is a botanist, working in research and development for DuPont in the 1980s before transferring into environmental research as an entrepreneur with Kingston Environmental Services.

Cason interviewed Mary Louise for the story. She also provided the accompanying photos.
