My college alma mater finally did it. Northwest Nazarene University is no longer the Crusaders. They are the Nighthawks. That is all I have to say about that. On another note, my high school classmate (Ferndale High School, Ferndale, Wash., class of 1986) and his football team have had some successes lately that I have tuned into a little bit. That’s Doug Pederson, coach of the Philadelphia Eagles. Always a great athlete and all-around nice guy in high school.
