Simeon G. Iness is my grandfathers brother (Roy Iness). I love telling my three children that my grandfathers brother worked hard to achieve dreams that seemed unreachable. He is a great example to many especially my family. I would love to hear from Iness family via email. I keep track of genealogy and have little stories about keota, and their journey to California. Thank you for making such a wonderful website!!!!!

I happened to meet and become acquainted with Dan Iness at Charlie's Restaurant (good burgers and tri-tip) in Los Alamos, CA. Topic of Finland came up and Dan told me about Sim. I lived in Helsinki during the Olympics and as a child was in total awe of anyone who competed at the huge Olympic stadium with its 22 floor high tower and the statue of Paavo Nurmi guarding the entrance.
I immigrated to the US in 1962. I am most impressed now to find out the life history of Sim.
Thank you Dan for directing me to this inspirational web site.

I grew up in Porterville, and was active in Track & Field during the late 60's at PUHS. As a runner, I didn't directly work with Mr. Iness, other than watching him train my friend who threw the discus. I remember him as a quiet man, a great coach and one who certainly did not tout his own achievements. He was very respected in our community and a true Valley treasure. I moved from Porterville in the early 70's, had I remained I would certainly have enjoyed the opportunity of knowing him better.

As a high school shotput and discus coach and a thrower myself in high school, I had heard of Sim Iness but didn't know a lot about him. Thank you for all the information on this site. It was great! I will be sharing with my throwers tomorrow. Sim was an American hero!!

I attended PUHS from 1965 to 1969. Sim was the Athletic Director and Varsity football coach. He was one of the nicest teachers I can remember from PUHS and I was sad to see him move on to Porterville Junior College before I made the Varsity football team.

Do you have any record of Robert Hamlin won 2nd place in the 1961 National A.A.U.Junior Olympic Finals in the running broad jump of the midget division? Who won 1st place?
