LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - The Texas high school made famous in the book "Friday Night Lights" said Thursday that a longtime teacher committed suicide a day after being questioned about an alleged improper relationship with a student, the school's fifth former staffer to face such accusations in a little more than a year.
George was born in Chicago on June 11, 1924 and passed away in Sacramento, on April 20, 2014. His family moved to California in 1939 and he went to Manteca High School. He was a talented musician. He found his passion for music as a teenager playing clarinet and saxophone.
I asked a handful of Mantecans to give me a short story of their mother. Just a little sentiment to shed light on the women that carried them for nine months. The women that fed them, clothed them, taught them, consoled them, and gave them life. Some sentiments were short and sweet, others absurd and hilarious but all conveying one message – we love our mothers.
