Ferdie to Bob

  • Boojferd
    Dear Bob, here are some photos of my life here on the campus of Concordia Seminary. I love kids, working with the grounds crew, swimming, playing with my dog friends, and especially my own family people.

    I'm not one to praise Los Angeles often, but...... "Where ambitious construction for the 1976 games in Montreal and 1980 games in Moscow had saddled organizers with expenses greatly in excess of revenues, Los Angeles strictly controlled expenses by using existing facilities except a swim stadium and a velodrome that were paid for by corporate sponsors. The Olympic Committee led by Peter Ueberroth used some of the profits to endow the LA84 Foundation to promote youth sports in Southern California, educate coaches and maintain a sports library. The LA84 Foundation, formerly called the Amateur Athletic Foundation until changing its name in 2007, led an initiative in 2010 to raise funds to support high school sports in Los Angeles, in response to massive budget cuts in the school district.[3] The 1984 Summer Olympics are often considered the most financially successful modern Olympics." The swim stadium is near, and used by, USC. Interestingly the Swim Stadium from the 1932 Olympics is still in use.
    I was able to attend Volleyball matches in the Long Beach Arena.

    It's too bad the citizens of California didn't elect Peter Ueberroth, a Republican, to be their Governor in 2003. Just think what he could have done for the State of California.

    Rand

    Actually, we're good as is. Peter wasn't a candidate in 2003 and Republicans got what they wanted: the mess that was Arnold.

    Ron

    Actually, Rand your are wrong, as often the case. Peter was on the ballot in 2003. He ran as an independent.

    I'm not sure everything has to be about politics.
