Chances are if you've lived in Hastings or anywhere around the Tribland for a period of time you probably know Jim Heyen.
To most, Heyen is known as 'The Mr. Tire guy.'
You've probably heard Heyen, the manager of 18 Mr. Tire stores affiliated with Trumbull-based Cooperative Producers Inc. say this a time or two: "If we don't have it and we can't get it then they don't make it."
Others in Hastings know Heyen from his 19-year tenure on the Hastings Board of Education.
However, to hundreds of former area young athletes, Heyen is known simply as coach.
