LOCAL FOOTBALL SCORING UPDATES PRESENTED BY THE HUNGRY HOBO:

Day in history for January 5, 2002

1852 -- 150 years ago
Much has been said in recent years about methods of teaching. The analytic plan is the best. Rock Island ought to divide the two schools in District 1 so that younger children would be in one school and older ones in the other. Parents should encourage their children to go to school.

1877 -- 125 years ago
A pleasant drive behind good horses pulling a sleigh is to Linwood, Iowa, on the ice. Rock Island parties take the ice road every night for merry oyster suppers at Wood's Hotel there.

1902 -- 100 years ago
Sisters of St. Anthony's Hospital will make their annual calls for subscriptions next week.

1927 -- 75 years ago
Alderman George E. Bartholomew was elected for the seventh time as president of the Izaak Walton League.

1952 -- 50 years ago
An order, directing all citizens who are maintaining advertising signs, boards, or similar objects on city-owned boulevards to remove them immediately, has been issued by Moline Police Chief Harry Fromme.

1977 -- 25 years ago
Vlademeire, 6-week-old half Labrador and Irish Setter, acquired by Mr. and Mrs. Rick Hawotte, 3146 10th St., Rock Island, on New Year's Eve, has good reason to be wagging his tail today. The little dog was rescued from the furnace in the basement of the Hawotte home after he had fallen through a hot air wall register in the kitchen.

Local events heading








  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.
