By Brian Williams Sun Tribune The geography of Americas conflicts may change as one era gives way to another, but the spirit that pervades Memorial Day is a constant, affirming the American ideal of freedom and the cost required to preserve it. The ideal shone through on a pleasant Monday morning, as many citizens gathered for the annual Memorial Day observance in Morris. The indoor program was in its new location at the Morris National Guard Armory, where at the entrance everyone could appreciate the new Charlie Company memorial.

Kindergarten: The Kinder Kids were wired this week. We made a trip to the Chahinkapa Zoo. Thanks to the parents that went a long and a big thanks to our drivers. We played some ball, had some picnics and best of all we graduated. If you see us walking a little taller now it is because we have completed our first year of school, and we are indeed very proud of that accomplishment. Have a safe and happy summer. Grade 1: Monday the first grade traveled to Lake Carlos Environmental Center. We participated in classes about animals, insects and birds.

The NBA is currently in the conference finals, with Dallas battling Phoenix in the West, and Detroit going against Miami in the East. Before I break down those series, I must mention the Dallas-San Antonio series won by Dallas in seven games. Because of a scheduling quirk, the best two teams in the West met in the conference semifinals. This was one of the best series the NBA has seen in a long time. Every game except the game two victory by Dallas was close. Dallas won two games in overtime and another by one point.
