LOCAL FOOTBALL SCORING UPDATES PRESENTED BY THE HUNGRY HOBO:

Day in history for September 6, 2000

1875 -- 125 years ago
Burglars stole a quantity of silver service from the home of Colonel J.N. Macomb, Rock Island, and jewelry from the home of James S. Gilmore.

1900 -- 100 years ago
The old fashioned dance is returning to take the place of the musical form of gymnastics brought about by the rag time.

1925 -- 75 years ago
Mrs. C.W. Waterman won the Rock Island Arsenal ladies golf club championship.

1950 -- 50 years ago
In a totally unexpected move, the East Moline city council voted last night in favor of the installation of parking meters in the downtown area to provide revenue for a proposed general wage increase for city employees. The council action followed the presentation of a plea for a 25-cents per hour wage increase by members of the city street department, who walked off their jobs for one day last week to enforce their demands.

1975 -- 25 years ago
This afternoon marked a first for Black Hawk College when two former students were married in the college's student center. Jan Cockerill, Rock Island, and John Franks, rural Port Byron, decided to be married on the campus because it was here that they met when both were students in the spring term of 1971. James Parks, associate professor of vocal music at Black Hawk, added in the spirit of homecoming by serving as soloist.

  Today is Monday, Sept. 22, the 265th day of 2014. There are 100 days left in the year.

1864 -- 150 years ago: The board of education has granted Thursday as a holiday for the children, with the expectation that parents who desire to have their children attend the Scott County Fair will do so on that day and save irregularity the rest of the week.
1889 -- 125 years ago: The guard fence around the new cement walk at the Harper House has been removed. The blocks are diamond shape, alternating in black and white.
1914 -- 100 years ago: The Rev. R.B. Williams, former pastor of the First Methodist Church, Rock Island, was named superintendent of the Rock Island District.
1939 -- 75 years ago: Abnormally high temperatures and lack of rainfall in Illinois during the past week have speeded maturing of corn and soybean crops.
1964 -- 50 years ago: Installation of a new television system in St. Anthony's Hospital, which includes a closed circuit channel as well as the three regular Quad-Cities channels, has been completed and now is in operation.
1989 -- 25 years ago: When the new Moline High School was built in 1958, along with it were plans to construct a football field in the bowl near 34th Street on the campus. Wednesday afternoon, more than 30 years later, the Moline Board of Education Athletic Board sent the ball rolling toward the possible construction of that field by asking superintendent Richard Hennigan to take to the board of education a proposal to hire a consultant.
