About 11 a. It is not the president, but his Chief of Staff, Dr. Jorge Ramon Hernandez no relation.
The Great Formosa Hoax
Hernandez, we are told, handles much of the day to day work of running the country. He has become a friend to HOI. About an hour later, two more helicopters head toward the ranch.
One breaks off and begins to circle the landing area. I look up to see an armed guard with one foot out the door of the helicopter. Once the security pass had been made, the other helicopter finally landed. Juan Orlando Hernandez is young 46 , handsome and sometimes controversial. He has been able to make a dent in the criminal element and drug trafficking that has been part of Honduras for so long. Thus, not everyone wishes him well and thus the security detail which, we are told, numbered over All of the children who attend Esperanza Middle School and the Aldersgate Elementary school across the street are here, dressed in white shirts, khaki pants and skirts, to meet the President and celebrate the naming of the field for Coach Dooley.
A number of presentations are made: Steve Stirling presents the medications and renews his promise to continue to help the region. Scholarships are awarded to two young people in the name of Bob and Susan Hope. The children present homemade quilts to each of the dignitaries.
Before the ribbon cutting ceremony, Coach Dooley and President Hernandez place their handprints in concrete to mark the occasion. After the ribbon cutting ceremony, President Hernandez cuts off several small pieces of the ribbon to present to Coach Dooley and the other dignitaries. This president knows his way around a good photo-op. Then Coach Dooley kicks the first soccer ball towards the goal. It is a pretty good kick by the former Auburn quarterback, but the goalie makes the stop. Then, the first young people play a game on Vince Dooley Field. The president says his goodbyes and races back to the ranch to catch his flight back to Tegucigalpa.
Maria and I have lunch at the ranch with Coach Dooley and his wife, Barbara. They have been in Honduras for over a week. Barbara helped the children with the quilts they gave out during the ceremonies. It was also the 33rd anniversary for Steve and Sook Hee Stirling.

In I was honored to write his autobiography. But as we sat there in the dining hall of the HOI Ranch there was a strong sense that this was his finest hour. Then it was time to leave. Maria and I took one last picture with Coach Dooley and Barbara and then boarded our van. Yes, the ride would be long and would be bumpy. And the race was on to see how far we could get before the sunlight was gone. We were all very tired but still the van was filled with the excitement of what we had all just shared. It was the kind of experience you can only get by being willing to step outside of your comfort zone.

A long, hot shower would soon follow. But first we said our goodbyes because the next morning we would go our separate ways. We had known these people for less than 48 hours but we had shared an experience that would bond us for the rest of our lives. I discovered this when the lady sitting next to me crossed herself as we were rolling down the runway. But we quickly—and I do mean quickly—climbed over the mountains.
It was shortly after 3 p. In less than four hours we would be home. Will be interesting to know his take on the huge match-up between LSU-Georgia.
