FOUNTAIN COUNTY CELEBRITIES
William David "Dave" Sanders (October 22, 1951 - April 20, 1999) was a computer and business teacher at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado, USA. He was also the coach of the girls basketball and softball teams, though he is best known as one of the persons killed in the Columbine High School massacre.

When the assault on the school began, Sanders ran to the school cafeteria and alerted students. Along with two of the school's janitors, he helped get more than 100 students to safety.

By the time the gunmen arrived, the cafeteria was nearly empty. Sanders then made his way
upstairs to the hall, trying to get students to safety by hiding them in classrooms when he was shot from behind by Dylan Klebold. He was hit in the torso, both shoulders, head and neck. He managed to get into a science lab where he lay on the ground and bled to death waiting for help.

Dave was buried in Littleton's Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens. Since his death, Coach Dave Sanders has had a softball field at Columbine and a scholarship named after him, to honor his memory, and posthumously received the Arthur Ashe Courage Award. The Fountain Central High School basketball court was named after him in his honor.

George W. Crane
Hillsboro
Nationally Syndicated Columnist
Presidential Speech Writer
Dr. George W. Crane, a self-described "overeducated farmer," who dispensed modern advice to the lovelorn and old-fashioned horse sense to everybody else through a series of syndicated newspaper columns for some 60 years, died on Monday, July 17, 1995 at his farm outside Hillsboro, Indiana.

He had continued distributing such columns as "The Worry Clinic," and "Horse Sense," until shortly before his death at the age of 94.

Dr. Crane, who was a trained psychologist and a physician, maintained only a limited private practice. He reached a wider group of patients with his "Worry Clinic" columns which were carried by some 250 newspapers at their peak in the 1940's and 1950's.

In a varied and innovative career in which he never strayed far from a rock-ribbed belief in what he regarded as fundamental conservative values, Dr. Crane also wrote campaign speeches for Calvin Coolidge, taught the adult Bible class at the Chicago Methodist Temple for 35 years, operated a computerized matchmaking service, taught adult psychology at Northwestern University and lectured nightly to his five children at the family dinner table.
