Stanford sophomore guard and 2011 Rock Island graduate Chasson Randle was named to the Pac-12 Conference All-Academic second team on Tuesday. Randle is one of seven Stanford players on the 13-player list.

In order to be eligible for the All-Academic team, a student-athlete must mustain a minimum 3.0 GPA and be either a starter or significant contributor. Per conference regulations, that means a player must participate in 50 percents of a team's scheduled contests excluding injuries.

Randle, one of two sophomores on the second team, has a 3.35 GPA. He averaged 13.6 points and 2.9 rebounds this season for the Cardinal, who reached the second round of the National Invitation Tournament.

1864 — 150 years ago: A fine lumber mill is on the course of erection at Andalusia. A flouring mill at that location is doing a fine business.
1889 — 125 years ago: J.B. Lidders, past captain of Beardsley Camp, Sons of Veterans, returned from Paterson, N.Y., where he attended the National Sons of Veterans encampments.

1989 — 25 years ago: A few years ago, a vacant lot on 7th Avenue and 14th Street in Rock Island was a community nuisance. Weeds grew as high 18 inches. Today, the lot has a new face, thanks to Michael and Sheila Rind and other neighbors who helped them turn it into a park three weeks ago.
