Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania

In this Jan. 12, 2010 file photo, a sign in the town of Jim Thorpe, Pa., is shown. The surviving sons of famed American Indian athlete Jim Thorpe won a crucial legal victory in April 2013 that put them close to their goal of bringing their father's remains from the Pennsylvania town named for him to tribal lands in Oklahoma, where he was born. But the town of Jim Thorpe isn't letting its Olympian namesake go without a fight. Residents and business owners are helping to raise money for the town’s appeal, saying they have honored, appreciated and respected a man long considered one of the 20th century’s best athletes.
