    Though I didn't know Mr. Jostes, he made huge contributions to his community.   As a kid, I recall going into the store up on the 'Ave' many times.  It was always full of kids due to all the work they did for the local schools and sports organizations.  And, who could forget the large display of trophies as you entered the store...  It was THE destination for my first Little League baseball glove and a number of years later for my first real "spikes".
