It is hard to put the magnitude of this loss in perspective. From the bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 until VJ Day on September 2, 1945, the United States was at war for 45 months. That means in Galesburg from 1941 thru 1945, there was a funeral for a GHS student or faculty member roughly every 21 days. The War effected individuals, families, and obviously communities.

It will be interesting to see the results of this, as many of you are aware, Rocky and Quincy still use a "secondary gym" for their girls sports also.
Macomb, Ill. —
The Macomb Board of Education responded May 15 to a Title IX inquiry alleging inequalities between boys and girls sports at Macomb Senior High School, and as a result of that inquiry, the district will begin providing girls participating in a sport practice at Washington Street Gym — a facility located several miles off the high school campus — with round-trip transportation from the high school.

Jim has a blog where he writes about whatever he wants to write about. This is an interesting essay he wrote this spring about the IHSA not being willing to adjust to help kids who were taking the AP exams. Enjoy....

|Getting our concessions lined up for League!|
We have 37 varsity teams, 28 frosh-soph teams, and 16 junior high teams entered. We are the 2nd biggest Summer League in Illinois (Maine West is #1).
Headlining our Summer League are three teams off Final Four State appearances- Springfield, Annawan, and LeRoy. In addition to these three teams, we have 11 other teams who were State Rated- Galesburg, Alleman, Geneseo, Havana, Knoxville, Morton, Peoria Central, UTHS, and Wethersfield.
It looks to be another exciting summer of basketball!!
In the first week- June 5, 7, 8, 9- we estimate there will be close to 100 games played in Galesburg.

What Popovich has done goes far beyond guiding the Spurs to the best record in the league this season. He has created a template for NBA success. His influence extends so far that his presence is likely to be felt in the NBA Finals even if the Spurs don't make it.
