Interesting Reading

A couple of stories of interest in the Valley News today.

First, there is a lengthy look at the need for, and status of the proposed indoor practice facility. Find the story HERE.

A good quote from Athletic Director Harry Sheehy from the story headlined Big Green Plays Catch Up With $120 Million in New Ahtletics Facilities:
“Athletics and athletic stories are still inspirational. One of my main jobs is to help Dartmouth build community. From Monday to Friday on this campus, hardly anyone agrees on anything. But on Saturday, the majority of the 8,000 people at the football game want to beat Harvard.”
There's also a story about the women's basketball team dropping to 3-6 on the season with a home loss to 4-7 Marist. (LINK) Within the notes at the end of the story Harry Sheehy addresses the 0-9 record so far this season for the Big Green men's basketball team under the direction of first-year coach David McLaughlin:
"I’m not shocked, but I’m a little surprised. I don’t care what (McLaughlin’s) record is this year. David’s going to get time to build this in the right way.
If you are of a certain age, this book cover will bring back memories of those first days of school. For some of us, this might of been the first awareness of the Ivy League. Folding these things was actually kind of fun ;-)

This one is for sale on eBay for $9.95 as are the others. I'm going to guess you got the whole Ivy League's worth of foldable covers for something like 59¢ back in the day.
