Dan Klimczak knew this day was coming for the past year and a half.

It wasn't just blood and treasure that was spilled on the dusty ground of Iraq by American servicemen over the past decade. Love for the people also was poured out there by many.
Dave Templin grew up on the east side of Gary, near the steel mills. Before graduating from Emerson in 1966, a blue-collar lunch-pail district, he would drive south with his pals.

ST. JOHN | It occurred hundreds of times through the years and it still goes on. Football players lined up at practice, running, then taking on a hit in preparation for an upcoming game.
COLUMBUS | Kristi Kaniewski knows Victoria Gaines very well. But in the past Kaniewski, the girls basketball coach at Penn, was trying to come up with a way to stop Merrillville's terror in the paint.
COLUMBUS | Sometimes the story is on the basketball floor, between the hardwood lines of America's game. Often, though, it is not.
LOGANSPORT | A big smile lit up the face of Merrillville's Victoria Gaines on Monday night inside The Berry Bowl. A good, loud summer crowd had filled the high school's gymnasium.
BLOOMINGTON | The old saying is simple – “Speed kills.” But at Indiana University's Robert C. Haugh Track & Field Complex on Friday, the saying was a little different.
BLOOMINGTON | Sweat and sun was all over the face of Hanover Central junior Kayla York on Friday at the campus of Indiana University. A smile broke through as York considered all that she had accomplished.
LOWELL | Brian Blaylock is a little like Alexander the Great, who wept after all of his blood and success because there were "no more worlds to conquer."
HOBART | The lines on the face seemed to mirror the cracks in the concrete below. There is an eternal bond between the two.
HAMMOND | Zach Schreiber feels a little bit like David on an ancient battlefield.
Gavit is looking to fill its boys basketball coaching position and its athletic director's post.
HAMMOND | Tim Feddeler joked about how much money he's going to save. His daily drives from Highland to Morocco were getting a little pricey.
HIGHLAND | The ball seem to hang in the air for an eternity. Years of hopes and dreams spun with the ball's trajectory.
CROWN POINT | It was deja vu all over again at the boys track and field sectional at Crown Point on Thursday night.
MERRILLVILLE | Richard Thiel grew up and lives in Cedar Lake. He wanted to play high school football. But his local school, Hanover Central, did not have football then.

Five years ago, Henry Johnson was playing some backyard football with his son, JoJo, a scene replicated in yards across America.

MERRILLVILLE | It is crazy to the 10th power. Nuts. Actually, what Merrillville junior Garrett Ferrell does for kicks is medieval.
LOWELL | Much has been written and spoken about rivalries in sports. Hockey is fierce, especially now as one player checks another heavy into the boards. Football and basketball rivalries can be heated year round, too.
There's been a feeling around the Ball State softball community in recent years that the Mid-American Conference Tournament wasn't right. Twice the Cardinals won the league's regular season and twice they failed to win the tourney.
HIGHLAND | Bret Barclay drove to the basket Saturday afternoon at Highland High School. The Crown Point senior made contact with T.J. Lux and dropped in the bucket.
GARY | Gene Johnson had a simple plan for the boys track and field team at West Side. The Cougars coach knew he had a sprint star in senior JonVea' Johnson, no relation.
The 2000-2001 girls basketball season was the greatest in Highland's history. The Trojans went undefeated, won the Hall of Fame Classic, were ranked No. 2 in the state and advanced to the Class 4A semistate.
GARY | A cold April wind whipped out of the north last week. Surely the waters of Lake Michigan were chopping harshly 25 blocks away.
HOBART | John Petroskey has always had an inkling to get into the spotlight. Just a bit anyway.
CROWN POINT | Meghan Kessler returned home last spring.
The softball doubleheader is over. The scrapes still burn. The muscle fatigue has its own pain. The tiredness in the head is also there.
