“Cities have the capability
of providing something for everybody,
only because, and only when,
they are created by everybody.”

4LIFE: HOW A HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL TEAM,
EL GORDO AND THE LAST UNCONTACTED TRIBE
REDEFINED CITY PRIDE
by Kendall F. Person
25-20 not the urgency of 51/50 nor the universal jubilation of 420, but for a neighborhood in north Sacramento, long reviled, often scoffed and sometimes neglected, those numbers created a moment in California history, that can never be repeated. By the score of 25 – 20, Grant High the community jewel of Del Paso Heights and an underdog on all scorecards, defeated Long Beach Poly – ranked No. 2 in the nation – taking sole possession of the 1st ever California Interscholastic Federation Football Championship… also known as the State Crown.
$434,800 for every ticket marked 79140. 1,600 matches in all, with 800 winners in one tiny village, the size of a neighborhood, “Nearly everyone had a ticket or a share in one.” – the Mayor
400 ft at its highest elevation. No buildings nor roads, no infrastructure whatsoever. No emergency responders, no sounds no alarms. In fact, on North Sentinel Island, in 60,000 years, not a single thing has changed at all. 3 days after an earth-rotation-altering earthquake and tsunami, that took the lives of one quarter of a million people on 2 continents in 13 countries from 59 nations, somehow, the world’s most isolated neighborhood… yielded survivors.
