Cracked courts racism involved? Continued from page 71 continued. "I don't know what's going on but it does make you wonder." "I remember coming down here in 1976 as a seventh grader and the courts haven't been touched since. That's a long time," Blaine Daisey said. "I reluctantly admit that the issue of race has entered my mind." Otha "Chico" Beckett, a 37 year old who starred in football and track for Cape in 1978 and 1979, said, "Look at the tennis courts and look here. The tennis courts are for tourists. I know I've signed a cou- ple of peti- tions but nothing has ever come of them. "I'm really open-minded, but the issue of race has entered my CRACKS mind." Back on the court where win- ners stay and losers sit, running games to 12 baskets was an all- star array of athletes which includ- ed Tracy Jones, Williams Jones, Eric Gooch, Otha Beckett, Derwin Brown, Cardell Bolden, Dave Pritchett, Jodi Felton, Lamar Dave Frederick photos Barnard Miller shoots. Thompson, Marcus Hall, James Custis, Sydney "Soup" Frazier, Thurmond White, Joe Snead, Andy McCollough, Fran Forest, Spencer Brit- tingham and Garrison Duncan.

CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, August 16 - August 22,1996 - 73 Uncle Bill Moore is a true friend By Dave Frederick The old adage goes: You can pick your friends but you're stuck with your relatives. That cynical statement is shot full of holes when discussing the relationship between 19 year old Cape graduate Corey Kinley and his uncle Bill because Uncle Bill is in fact a chosen one. "We first became friends when I was in fourth grade and my mom (now Carol Hunt) was teaching in Laurel," Corey said. "Bill and his wife Colleen are both Laurel teachers and took morn under their wing. They babysat me that first summer when mom taught summer school. Bill and I shared an interest in sports and that's how our friendship began. Over the years he has watched me play all the sports from pee wee to high school soccer and senior league baseball. This: summer we won the summer soccer league. Uncle Bill was there sitting in his lawn chair." Bill Moore Was an Outstanding athlete at Laurel in the early six- ties when the team lost only one football gam in three years. Bill also remembers playing baseball against Chris Short and Johnny Morris. In,his 28 years as a Laurel teacher he has assisted on many football staffs. Now that Corey is at Moravian College in Bethlehem where last semester he made the Dean's List with a 3.6 average, Uncle Bill sends him clippings of Cape teams and calls him every Sunday night to see how he's doing. "Everybody should have a friend like Uncle Bill," Corey said. "I'm glad he picked me." CoreyKinley and his "uncle", Bill Moore. Dave Frederick photo A RHONE-POULENC RORER CO.
