what's left

Sixty years on - empty store fronts, quiet streets and proclamations of a better time.  In the winter of 1953-54 the town of Milan was taken on quite a ride when their high school basketball team won the Indiana State Championship.  The story is told that on the day after the victory 40,000 people descended on the town of 1,100 - lining the state road for more than 13 miles.  What a sight that must have been.
