Harry ‘Bus’ Yourell Was a Fighter to End
By RAY HANANIA — The first time I met Harry “Bus” Yourell was in 1978 while writing for the Southtown. At the time, he was the Worth Township Democratic Committeeman. I had written something nice about his Republican rival, Herbert V. Huskey, and “Bus” was giving me a piece of his mind.
I don’t remember what it was, but Bus and I had a rocky relationship that never bothered him and that he never shied away from. We were constantly at odds, the way it was supposed to be back then between reporters and politicians.
I don’t know how many times Bus gave me “what for” over the telephone after I published one of my twice weekly columns reporting on Huskey, the Republicans or local politics.
He always had an opinion.
