Your Sunday Feel Good Read

An anonymous donor has paid 5 million dollars to name the basketball court at USC's new Galen Center after Jim Sterkel, a long-forgotten Trojan player of the '50s.

I won't spoil the hows and whys by sharing the details here, but whether you're a sports fan, a USC fan, or none of the above, you'll appreciate this celebration of a "regular guy" who was a good husband, father, and friend.

Jim's wife said, "He was such a good husband, such a good man, but do people really notice those things anymore?"

They do indeed. The article and Jim Sterkel serve as a reminder for all of us of the theme of IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE: that while we're here each of us has the power to impact others for good.
