Saturday High School Football Action


#links# Jordan Veney and Ingrid Flores concluded their 2008 outdoor track and field seasons on Friday afternoon at the 2008 NCAA Midwest Regional in Lincoln, NE. Jordan Veney placed 14th in the discus with a throw of 155' 6". Veney's mark was one of four throws within nine inches of each other and those throws were good for 11th through 14th place. The Redskins got the game-winning field goal as time expired, but Jacksonville fans were treated to a great punt return by Dede Westrbook. I analyzed his return for TuneIn 's 1st & Goal Check Down segment. Chuck Nice of Playing with Science joined me on the show. Click here for the audio of our segment.

After the fall of the Wall, Kurfürstendamm calmed down. Tourists were drawn to the boulevards in the eastern part of the city, amongst them 'Unter den Linden'. Suddenly there were empty shops on the boulevard in the west, and the Europa-Center on Breitscheidplatz couldn't keep pace with the shopping centres that were springing up all over the city. The historic Bikini-Haus - opposite the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtniskirche - was subjected to the ravages of time. The years passed. The construction of the new 'Kranzler-Eck' - the new glass building that is today the location of the tradition-steeped Kranzler Café - rang in a change of fortune for the area. The futuristic structure was the spark that re-ignited Kurfürstendamm. A renovation of the Gedächtniskirche tower ruins followed, as did a facelift for the Bikini-Haus, which was reinvented as a 'concept mall' and now houses boutiques and temporary shops, and a makeover for the Europa-Center, which is now a listed building.
