BREAKING NEWS – Freeburg, Illinois – Athletes at a southern Illinois high school will keep the nickname Freeburg Midgets, despite the objections of a group representing people with dwarfism who find the name offensive. About 500 people gathered at Freeburg Community High School to urge the school board not to dump the mascot. The Little People of America had asked Freeburg and a half-dozen other schools nationwide to drop the midgets moniker. Gary Arnold, the president of Little People of America speaking for his organization said he hoped they can accomplish their goals, but he did acknowledge that the name change like so many other things, are often out of their reach.
