Elmhurst Graduate Jessica Gullett

After Tech's 7th year of N.A.I.A. Women's Soccer they had their most successful season because of a roster of twenty very competitive players. This team is one tough bunch with this year's record of 17-3-2.

Tech should again be outstanding next year with this team's roster of 2-Seniors, 9-Juniors, 4-Sophmores, and 4-Freshmen.

Charade vs. The Truth About Charlie

 

It's a story of murder, mistaken identity, mystery, money, and amour (there is no m-word for love in the thesaurus). It's the classic story of Charade, and it all begins back in 1963, when Regina Lambert (Audrey Hepburn) returns from vacation to find her house empty, her husband, Charles, dead, the small fortune that he stole missing, and three thugs are after her. She soon runs into a man, Peter Joshua (Cary Grant), who she met while on vacation. The...

Scared Straight

 

It seems that some TV and radio preachers are obsessed with the message that the end of the world is near and we better be ready to meet the Lord in the clouds.

Dad and I were talking about...

It was called 'George's' and it's on Jefferson Street in Huntington, Indiana. I think maybe the full name is George's Hot Dog Stand; I saw it printed both ways. It first appears to be a small 'hole-in-the-wall' place.

Young Kids Don't Belong In Major League Dugouts

The USA Today, October 28, 2002 issue had an article, "Family Oriented Giants Hope MLB Doesn't Ban Children From Dugouts." I'm sure many Major League players would like to have their sons in the dugout during one of their games. Dusty Baker was quoted: "The topic likely will be discussed during baseball's winter meetings. I'm just hoping they don't come up with some Darren Baker rule that prohibits kids from being in the dugouts."
