Nice gesture

May 12, 2005

After reading Gene Young's history article on Mr. Earl Johnsmeyer and his wife Irene, I would really like to see the school board of the high school name the basketball gym after him. It would be a nice gesture to a gentleman who loved Lansing and the school system. I played for Mr. Johnsmeyer in 1949 and coached against him a few years later and I can say this: there has never been a better man. I have never lost my respect for him.

Thank you,
