If any of the 23,000 people living in Simsbury, Connecticut didn't know Kathleen Magowan while she was alive, they sure know who she is now that she's passed away.
By all accounts, those who did know Kathleen would tell you she was a humble former elementary school teacher who lived a simple life of modest means. She spent 35 years educating 1st graders at what we're fairly sure was indeed a modest salary. Well apparently, Kathleen was also very educated herself in the art of saving money, because when she passed away back in 2011 at the age of 87, she had accumulated quite a vast sum of money.
$6 million to be exact, which she willed to the town of Simsbury in various ways. Nearly a half mill went to the board of education and the rest to dozens of local institutions. So where did Kathleen Magowan get all this money? The lawyer she hired to settle her affairs before she died discovered her family had purchased stock in such blue chip companies as GM, GE, Quaker and others. The stock just sat and grew and grew over the years, over 50 years to be exact.
One of the recipients was Magowan's Roman Catholic Parish, St. Mary's who's recently installed priest didn't really even know who Magowan was until he was informed the church would be receiving a check for $347,000 from her estate. The Reverend Frank Matera called the bequest "pure grace".
We call it that too...and her.
If there was ever any doubt about Tim Tebow's pro football career being over for good, this may cement that thought. It's no secret that after being released by the NFL, Tim hired prominent broadcast agent Nick Khan to pursue a career in the booth.
Well now, word has it he will in fact take a job behind a mike somwhere as 3 networks are vying for his analyst services. They are CBS Sports, Fox Sports and the new ESPN SEC Network, the last of which is reported to be launching an SEC only college gameday show which will feature Rece Davis as host, Paul Finebaum playing the role of Lee Corso the coach, and Tebow would be the show's Kirk Herbstreit.
Wherever Tebow lands, the network that gets him is hoping he'll still have enough fans to draw in viewers. What do you think? Would you watch a college football show cause Tim Tebow was on it?
