Girl banned from playing football at Catholic middle school


COATESVILLE, Pa. — A Lancaster County football coach is fighting for his daughter to be allowed to play football at a Catholic middle school,

Another one. This information was provided.

Though a picture at the Choi family home captures a cute cheerleader, Brooke Choi has always liked to play more physical sports for as long as she can remember.

“Times have changed since that picture,” Brooke said. “You will not see me in pigtails or even a ponytail. Nor a cheerleading outfit.”

Instead, a football uniform. Just like her dad, who happens to be the head football coach at Pequea Valley High School.

“She’s tough,” Mike Choi, Brooke’s father, said. “I wouldn’t want to go against her if I was someone on the other side. In anything. I don’t care if we’re playing cards or football, she’s going to compete with ya.”

Is PhyCor 2.0 Ahead? ‘ Paul Keckley

In the U.S. system of health, physicians are trained to be the patient’s advocate, voiding outside influences and financial considerations in assessing and treating their medical needs. That’s the basis for the profession’s respect by the masses and trust by its patients.

The business of medicine is distasteful to most physicians: surveys indicate the majority are predisposed to delegating those tasks to non-clinicians so long as decisions are made with their input, their income is protected, and their clinical autonomy is secured. That explains why three out of four choose employment in a larger organization vs. starting an independent practice.

Story of Oak Park fending off ‘white flight’ is told in frank detail at new village history museum

Oak Park likes to think of itself as a little bastion of diversity, a belief rooted both in its current demographics and in the town’s remarkable maneuvering to fight the ‘white flight’ that was going on in neighborhoods all around it in the late 1960s.

There’s truth behind that article of faith in the ‘village’ of 52,000, the first town you hit when you drive due west from Chicago’s Loop, but it is a highly nuanced story. The multipart documentary ‘America to Me,’ on Starz, gets inside Oak Park River Forest High School and underscores that even if white and African-American kids are in school together, they aren’t necessarily in the same school.
