One thousand, nine hundred and eighty-two basketball games: If you were to preside over one per day, every day, you'd need more than five years and five months to coach them all. Now imagine your team's winning every one of those games, many in college basketball's most remorselessly competitive conferences: the SEC in the case of the women, and the ACC in the case of the men. Each can claim more wins than any other coach, active or retired, in her and his respective Division I sports. But more than that—so much more—are the roads each has traveled over the course of careers that can be measured in Presidents Met on White House Visits with Team (four in her case, three in his). And to think that Krzyzewski, 64, could coach another decade and that, if not for the predations of early-onset dementia, Alzheimer's type, the diagnosis of which she received last spring, Summitt, 59, surely would too. "It's hard to go three decades and continue to recruit, to connect with the modern athlete, to just maintain that drive and passion for teaching, for coaching, for leading," former Blue Devil Grant Hill says of Krzyzewski—but change the wording...
his is the last place you'd expect Bill Cowher to pick for lunch: August, a fancy Upper East Side spot with a marble-topped bar, $495 bottles of Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande on the wine list and a French-speaking hostess up front. This is not to say that Bill Cowher isn't or can't be fancy, but well, it's Bill Cowher. Sidebar He says he's been here before, likes the food, the atmosphere. Likes talking with the head chef, Josh Eden. "It's a nice place to have in the neighborhood," he says as he settles into a booth in the back corner. "You should've seen me earlier," Cowher says with a laugh. "My wife likes hot yoga. So at 10 o'clock, we have a woman who comes to our apartment and it's just awesome. Because after my SoulCycle class on Mondays, I need it. ". Monday afternoons also consist of a walk downtown to Grace's Marketplace, where he buys a bunch of fruit (watermelon and cantaloupe, usually) for the week. Cowher is not doing these things because he's having a midlife crisis or trying to while away his days of semi-retirement. He is not trying to prove some larger point about how your life opens up when you're not surrounded by football 24/7. No, Bill Cowher is doing these things because he likes doing them. "It's like living in a fishbowl," he says of his previous life as an NFL head coach.
Depot History Timeline 1872: The Central Pacific survey assigns the name of Kings River Switch to the site. 1875: The Kingsburg Depot is first built on the site with a modified Southern Pacific Common Standard Number 18 two-story design. Of the 55 CS-18 depots originally built in California and Oregon, only 11 remain. This is the only one in a historic configuration at the original location on an active rail line which is now part of the Union Pacific. The depot includes freight and passenger accommodations and living space for the station agent and his family in a five-room apartment on the second floor. 1901-1902: Structure burns and is replaced with this identical CS-18 depot moved from Monson in Tulare County. With the help of service organizations and other volunteers, the exterior was painted red with white trim, and a large orange Dala Horse statue was placed on the roof. Late 1970’s: Historical Society moves to Historical Park. The depot sits empty for the first time in 112 years. 1996: Depot had been empty for nine years and not maintained by Southern Pacific for more than 28 years.
