    I miss the Bookshelf. That was a little piece of heaven on Windsor Place!
    Happy birthday!

    I loved that book shop..I would bring in my old books, and purchase used books for a fraction of the cost..Mrs.Cregg would beckon me in to tell me she had just gotten something she knew I would want to read…I am so happy that Community took over from Babbo’s Bookstore up on 9th..I like having an independant book seller in the neighborhood..you can order anything you want from them and have it in 2-3 days…but, I still miss the Book Shelf….happy birthday, Gerri!

    “Foul” was a fine book about an incredible payer whose NBA career was unjustly shortened.

    Lew Alcindor, by far

    • Jim Casey says:

      When Lewie was a soph, his breakout was his first game, vs LaSalle and its All-America center, Val Reid(Syracuse). In front of a packed gym at Power, the students counted each blocked shot of Reid by Lewie–the first 7 in a row ! As well, many of the weapons that eventually made him great were debuted: turn around jumpers, underneath out of bounds alley-oops for slams. It was evident that a star was born that night.
