Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
It seems that Frank Sinatra just won't quit singing to me. That's okay; he's always been one of my favorite crooners anyway. How bad can it be?!?

From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 03/27/07 - "A mix with a nice story @ the end":
, -- For women with no incentive to get in shape for the coming swimsuit season, here's a different motivation to cut the junk food. Hamburgers, hot dogs to fried chicken -- all your favorite no-effort foods eaten too much too often -- can raise a woman's risk of developing cancers of the womb, pancreas, skin and urinary tract, new studies claim. Two studies, one from the National Cancer Institute in ., and the other from Umea University Hospital in , have found these diseases could result from the high consumption of fatty and processed foods. The U.S. study discovered post-menopausal women on fatty diets may have a 15 percent increase in their chances of developing breast cancer. The Swedish study, which took place over the course of 13 years, established women with raised levels of blood sugar were at substantial extra risk of developing a range of other cancers. It's all in what you eat.

Ohhh, what a story! Thank you, Shari!
From Joe Drewry ('58) of VA to the Members of the Class of 1958 - 03/27/07 - "NNHS58 Planning Meeting for 50-Year Reunion, Thursday Night, 05/03/07 at Tzina's.":
Thanks, Joe, it sounds as though you're making great progress! I made you a new page within the Reunion section, and have updated the notice on the main page of the web site to indicate that:
From Cheryl Mays Howard ('66) of VA - 03/28/07 - "NNHS Class of 1967":
SUPER!!! I've posted this on the main page:
Of course, it will also appear on each Newsletter from now until then.
Can you tell me some specifics about the class - their class colors, motto, and flowers, for instance? I need to make them their own graduation and reunion pages, and they'll look better with some of those details. Practically all I could find from the '67 Anchor was this: Graduation Rehearsal - Friday, June 9, 1967
For the sake of useful distribution of facts, I created that Reunion Page for the Class of 1967:
Thanks again, Cheryl!
From My #2 Daughter-in-Law, Bethany Winona Harty (Siuslaw HS, OR - '94) of IL - 03/28/07 - "100 person mob":
This is hysterical, Lady! Of course, they're not chasing me! GIGGLES!!!
I really like the new images on your blog - such a lovely family you have! Thanks, Bethany!
From Fred Mays ('60) of VA - 03/28/07:
I recognized the picture of Bill Thomas in the morning paper. His reputation certainly went before him as I knew of him being a fine, committed Christian. I figure he must have graduated from N.N.H.S. in 1928 or 1929. A friend of ours, Virginia Nicholls, will be 94 on July 6th and she graduated in 1930.
Thank you, Fred. I had picked 1930 as his year of graduation, because my father was born in 1907 and graduated in 1925, but your estimate is a better one. I added your comments to his page:
Hope you are feeling well these days.....you
really did have a tough time of it, did you not?
Fred, I am so sorry to hear your tragic news. You are
all in our thoughts and prayers during this unthinkably difficult time. Please
pass on to them our deepest sympathies.
I'll leave you a scripture that helped me - in fact, the only words which comforted me - during a similar time over 25 years ago:
Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
Take care of your family and keep them all close.
From Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - 03/28/07 - "ACLU":
WILD GIGGLES!!! Bill Honey, you are baaaad!!!!
From Glenn Dye ('60) of TX - 03/28/07:
I wish I still had a set of those blue and gold ribbons I use to hang on my car radio antenna flying in the wind running down the road. I would let everybody here inknow it stood for the mighty Typhoons.
I should think the blue and gold ribbons would be easy enough to find, Glenn. The car antenna might be quite a bit trickier! GIGGLES!!! They were a joy to see, weren't they?!?
Thanks for the memory, Glenn!
From Robert Price ('61) of VA - 03/29/07 - "Track Season":
Well, the warmer weather is
finally here and I'll now venture out...
Iíve put off joining in for sometime now even though Iíve had a comments on many newsletters but didnít feel I would be contributing much so I didnít. Iíll start now.
|Saturday, April 2, 1960|
Iíve enclosed a copy of an
article from the Times Herald sports page for the 1960 track teamís first
outdoor meet of the year and a preseason article for the 1961 season. I thought
you might want to add this to the track teamís page. If anyone is interested
Iíll send a few others. I have a few saved for me by my father. It didnít seem
like a big deal then but they are nice to look back on now.
I have a few for the Ď59 and Ď60 football seasons as well as some programs and will be glad to scan them in and send them to anyone that would like copies. Or Iíll send the articles next football season.
Thank you so much, Robert! Building an archive is our primary function here! I've posted your clippings:
WILD GIGGLES!!! Thanks again, Robert!
From Wayne Stokes ('65) of VA - 03/29/07 - "A Little Trick To Try":
Now, I need your help regarding Rip (Collins - '65 - of TN). I don't want to hurt his feelings, but someone will need to send him a photo/drawing showing him which is his right foot and how the numeral 6 looks. I mean, It's not that he isn't brilliant, he is, he told me he was; it's just that he gets confused some times, you understand.
GOODY GOODY! The banter continues!!! Thanks, Wayne Honey!
From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 03/29/07 - "House stuff...":
love you lots, jb
OH, so would I, Lady, so would I!!! Thanks, Jean!

FOR NORTHERNERS MOVING SOUTH . . . In the South:
If you run your car into a ditch, don't panic. Four men in a four-wheel drive pickup truck with a tow chain will be along shortly. Don't try to help them, just stay out of their way. This is what they live for.
Don't be surprised to find movie rentals and bait in the same store....do not buy food at this store.
Remember, "y'all" is singular, "all y'all" is plural, and "all y'all's is plural possessive.
Get used to hearing "You ain't from 'round here, are ya?"
Save all manner of bacon grease. You will be instructed later on how to use it.
Don't be worried at not understanding what people are saying. They can't understand you either. The first Southern statement to creep into a transplanted Northerner's vocabulary is the adjective "big'ol," truck or big'ol" boy. Most Northerners begin their Southern-influenced dialect this way. All of them are in denial about it.
The proper pronunciation you learned in school is no longer proper.
Be advised that "He needed killin." is a valid defense here.
If you hear a Southerner exclaim, "Hey, y'all, watch this," you should stay out of the way. These are likely to be the last words he'll ever say.
If there is the prediction of the slightest chance of even the smallest accumulation of snow, your presence is required at the local grocery store. It doesn't matter whether you need anything or not. You just have to go there.
Do not be surprised to find that 10-year olds own their own shotguns, they are proficient marksmen, and their mammas taught them how to aim.
In the South, we have found that the best way to grow a lush green lawn is to pour gravel on it and call it a driveway.
AND REMEMBER: If you do settle in the South and bear children, don't think we will accept them as Southerners. After all, if the cat had kittens in the oven, we wouldn't call 'em biscuits.
From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 03/29/07 - "Devil in the Church":
One Sunday morning, everyone in a
bright, beautiful, tiny town got up early and went to the local church. Before
the services started, the townspeople were sitting in their pews and talking
about their lives, their families, etc.
Suddenly, Satan appeared at the front of the church. Everyone started screaming and running for the front entrance, trampling each other in a frantic effort to get away from evil incarnate.
Soon everyone was evacuated from the church, except for one elderly gentleman who sat calmly in his pew, not moving, seemingly oblivious to the fact that God's ultimate enemy was in his presence. Now this confused Satan a bit, so he walked up to the man and said, "Don't you know who I am?"
The man replied, "Yep, sure do."
Satan asked, "Aren't you afraid of me?"
"Nope, sure ain't," said the man.
Satan was a little perturbed at this and queried, "Why aren't you afraid of me?"
The man calmly replied, "Been married to your sister for over 48 years."
Received from Milton Freund.
From Edna Whitcomb Harrison ('65) of VA - 03/29/07 - "1964 Yearbook":
There is a 1964 Yearbook
from Newport News High School for sale on eBay. The auction ends on April 3rd.
This is the title and auction number:
1964 NEWPORT NEWS High SCHOOL YEARBOOK Anchor
Item number: 330103691703
The price right now is $9.95. It will probably not sell for very much. The Williamsburg Antique Mall carries yearbooks from time to time and they sell for $45.00 when they are in there. But yearbooks on eBay usually sell for not much more than their opening bid
Edna Whitcomb Harrison
Thanks, Edna - what a bargain!
I passed this nugget along to our Wizard of Wonderment, Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA to share with his classmates, as I thought they deserved to have first dibs on it. I hope it goes to a worthy home!
1. From Brenda Amos Williams ('62) of VA - 03/16/07 - "Re: HELLO":
Here I am again asking for another favor. Would you please post on your website how much we would love to find our 1962 classmates? I know that lots of folks that read your website, much more than our small 62 website. Our reunion is getting close (September 22) and we really would like to find as many as we can. We had a recent mailing and quite a few came back to us, such as wrong address, moved, etc. so sure would appreciate you putting that up for us.
You know also that you are always invited to
attend our reunion. We really would like to invite
all the classmates from 1960 to 1965 to attend our Friday night affair.
Soon we will have a webpage with all the information and invitation on it.
I appreciate all you do and hope things are doing good for all of you now.
Again, thanks for the help. Keep up the GREAT
"Be the change you wish to see in the world". -Ghandi
Why, certainly, Brenda! In fact, if you'll send me a list of your "missing", we'll post it and begin to search for them individually.
Thank you for the invitation! I'm delighted to see that you've opened your Friday night to include the two classes on either side of you. It will be a fun time for all, and I'm glad to help you in any way that I can.
I've posted your note here on your page:
2. From Dave Arnold ('65) of VA - 03/18/07 - "60th Birthday Party":
YIPPEE!!! Certainly, Dave! I made you a brand new page, and our Wizard of Wonderment, Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA picked the perfect music for it:
This information is now posted on the main page of the web site, and will be carried in each Newsletter from now until then.
Thanks, Dave! Sounds like fun!
3. From Sandra Canepa ('56) of VA) - 03/18/07 - "Buckroe & Crossroads Entertainment Complex":
March 18, 2007
Crossroads & Buckroe
I applaud the Hampton City Council for considering everything the new Crossroads entertainment complex is expected to do for Hampton. The Daily Press reports that Hampton is looking for Crossroads to be "an attempt to make Hampton a destination" and is "looking for people to come in." ("Hampton's $200M plan," Feb. 15)
Buckroe Beach and Lots B have been the goose that has laid, and continue to lay, golden eggs in the form of attracting thousands of people and thousands of dollars in revenue to a proven destination. Now the council wants to cut up, sell off and destroy this known attraction in hopes its "new goose," the Crossroads complex, will lay the golden eggs for Hampton in the future.
How much more sense would it make for Hampton to have two major attractions to tout; one tried and true, but improved into a magnificent bayfront park with ample off-street parking, and the other, new and untried but needing all the help possible to compete with the other six entertainment complexes in the area.
The council is doing the XL Development Group a huge disservice by not doing all it can as the hosting city to help ensure it a success. Why would the council destroy one financially proven "one-of-a-kind" destination spot to lay all the onus on an unproven Crossroads in "an attempt to make Hampton a destination" when together the two certainly would be a winning ticket and better for everyone involved?
Doesn't it make good business sense for the council to reconsider its earlier vote on Buckroe's Lots B (view Option B at .)?
Contact the council at 727-6315 or , and let them hear your thoughts on developing Buckroe along with the Crossroads complex.
Thank you so much, Sandra! I'm delighted to see there's still hope and that you and your committee are still working so diligently to save this for all of us.
Now, y'all do your part, too!

Here's That Rainy Day
Words and Music by Johnny Burke & Jimmy Van Huesen
From the Broadway show "Carnival in Flanders" (a 6-performance flop)
I should have saved
Those leftover dreams
But here's that rainy day
Here's that rainy day
They told me about
And I laughed at the thought
That it might turn out this way
Where is that worn out wish
That I threw aside
After it brought my love so near
Funny how love becomes
A cold rainy day
That rainy day is here
How love becomes
A cold rainy day
That rainy day is here
