James “Jim” Blaylock took early retirement from the Internal Revenue Service in January 2008, but it wasn’t for a life of leisure. Instead, he traded a paycheck for a volunteer position as general manager of the Hagerstown Ice & Sports Complex. His commitment to the community didn’t go unnoticed, as he recently was recognized by the Southeastern District of USA Hockey as a Volunteer of the Year.
