Proud of Lake hockey
Lake hockey would have ceased to exist, I believe in the 2000-01 season when the entire coaching staff resigned unexpectedly during the season. Had it not been for Don Schwamberger, a former Lake player, stepping in and taking over the program, I am sure the team would have been forced to fold.
When Lake won its first championship in 23 years in 2004-05, the amazing thing not mentioned in the article was that it was done with usually just eight skaters and a goalie. These young men, Zach Akenberger, Kyle Brown, Tom Duris, Nick Foley, Nick Griffith, Steve Lowe, Alex Maze, Aaron Schofield, Billy Sigler, Matt Winkle, and Tom Wojciechowski were more than a team, they were brothers.
Over the years, the alumni have been a valuable resource for Lake's hockey program. Many former players volunteered their time, helping players over the years that I coached learn basic hockey skills and even teaching them how to skate. Many supported the program financially and with donations of equipment.
Finally, I would like to thank the players, their parents, the financial supporters, and Tim Cahill Sr. for helping to keep the program going strong when I was coach.
The gentleman who lived there fought to keep it, but it was taken anyway. The yard on the corner was beautiful to see from the street as you drove up to the stoplight. I, for one, miss seeing and getting ideas for my own yard. Could someone with some knowledge tell me what happened?
Good luck with the new proposal.
Ms. Fluke, a law student at Georgetown University, who was advocating for insurance plans to cover the cost of contraception, became the target of attacks by Limbaugh.
Besides calling her a slut, he called her a “prostitute.” And said he wanted her to make sex tapes and post them online. He speculated she only had a problem paying for contraception because she was having “so much sex.”
We who support Ms. Fluke find this a serious offense by Limbaugh and we ask that this radio show be terminated. His program should be rated “R” for sick listeners and viewers. I will request the FCC to investigate.
I am a mom of three daughters and granddaughters. If that would have been spoken to any one of them, it would end up in a courtroom.
