Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   This delightful theme - one of my personal all-time favorites - first appeared almost exactly two years ago, thank to the genius of our Wizard of Wonderment,     Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA:

    As I said then, "I hope you're enjoying this MIDI as much as I am; I just keep hiking the volume and letting it blast away.  I personally think it's one of the best that Dave has ever found for us.  Thanks so much, David!  You're simply the best!"

From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 04/03/07 - "Women's version & Men's version":

Women's Version

Woman #1: Oh! You got a haircut! That's so cute!

Woman #2: Do you think so? I wasn't sure when she gave me the mirror. I mean, you don't think it's too fluffy looking?

Woman #1: Oh Golly, no! No, it's perfect. I'd love to get my hair cut like that, but I think my face is too wide. I'm pretty much stuck with this stuff I think.

Woman #2: Are you serious? I think your face is adorable. And you could easily get one of those layer cuts - that would look so cute I think. I was actually going to do that except that I was afraid it would accent my long neck.

Woman #1: Oh - that's funny! I would love to have your neck! Anything to take attention away from this two-by-four I have for a shoulder line.

Woman #2: Are you kidding? I know girls that would love to have your shoulders. Everything drapes so well on you. I mean, look at my arms - see how short they are? If I had your shoulders I could get clothes to fit me so much easier.

Men's Version

Man #1: Haircut ?

Man #2: Yeah.

   GIGGLES!!!  Thanks, Shari!

  From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 04/03/07 - "Something Neat":

Good Day to Everyone.

This was sent to me by my daughter, Karen Meeker. She works at the Portsmouth Naval Yard. As far as I know this is true. I know it is patterned after a little guy from England several years ago. But I am passing it along anyway. Hey, cards can mean so much and the expense is relatively small. I am going to look for a special new stamp for mine.

Have a happy week.


A friend of mine at work is helping out a little boy who is 8 years old and dying of Leukemia. His body rejects any treatments. He knows that he is dying. His one wish to beat the Guinness records for receiving the most "get well" cards.

His parents don't want any money. They just want to support his wish. So if you want to help out, send a get well card to Josh at the following address:

c/o Josh
630 E. Little Creek Road
Norfolk, VA 23505

We are collecting a bunch at work and my friend is taking them to the parents. CompuTune is his sponsor. I'm going to get our kids to each do one. Pass it on if you want.



   Thanks, Joan - and Karen!  I was unable to check the validity of this.  This is as close as I could come:

   For the price of a card and a stamp, why not go for it?!?

  From Fuzzy Turner ('63) of NC - 04/03/07 - "Internet disconnection":

If interested, I will be shutting down my entire computer system within the next 7 days.  I have found the computer to be too aggravating and easily accessed by any hacker.  I have enjoyed e-mails with you all and will miss each one of you.  If interested, my mailing address is (available on request).

Thanks and may God bless each one of you. 

Louis Turner

   Fuzzy, I'm astonished and all but speechless over your decision.  I cannot even imagine the severity of the circumstances which must have led you to such a measure.  We wish you well, we'll try to stay in touch, and we'll be here should you ever change your mind.  Thanks, Fuzzy!

  From Wayne Stokes ('65) of VA - 04/04/07 - "Coffee Beans":

Read the instructions before you look at the picture. Kinda neat!
This is bizarre - after you find the guy - it's so obvious.  Once you find him - it's embarrassing, and you think, why didn't I see him immediately?

Doctors have concluded that if you find the man in the coffee beans in 3 seconds, the right half of your brain is better developed than most people. If you find the man between 3 seconds and 1 minute, the right half of the brain is developed normally. If you find the man between 1 minute and 3 minutes, then the right half of your brain is functioning slowly and you need to eat more protein If you have not found the man after 3 minutes, the advice is to look for more of this type of exercise to make that part of the brain stronger!!!

And, yes, the man is really there!!!

   And I'm sure y'all all did far better on this than I did, though in truth, my timer bit the dust on Thanksgiving Day, so I really have no idea.....

   Thanks, Wayne Honey!

Dear Carol,

So easy to slip the mind ~~~~~ What am I talking about ??? Why it's DONATION TIME, That's what. Watch for an envelope that I mailed today. I hope this note finds you in good health !!!!! My health is pretty good, I take pills for High Blood Pressure BUT, Outside of that I am doing Excellent. The Doctor said if I would drop some weight I might not need Blood Pressure Medication. That's easy for him to say, I eat in a restaurant every day and its hard to lose weight eating restaurant food.

That's all for now. I look forward to your Newsletters, so STAY HEALTHY.

Your Friend, Herbie

   Herbie Darlin', you Sweetie Pie!  I always look forward to your notes, too!

   This time you caught me off guard.  I was expecting to see some cute little puppy dog pulling off a rescue mission.  What I found instead prompted a nice fat bunch of tears.

   Thank you so very much, Love!   You are a jewel!

  From Robert Price ('61) of VA - 04/04/07 - "Norfolk-Virginian Pilot Relays":

I was paying a brief visit to the Peninsula this past weekend to celebrate my mother's 98th birthday and I happened to notice that the Conn-Madden Relays were taking place.

   98th?!?  WOWZERONI-RINI-ROONI!!!  Please extend to your mama our heartiest congratulations!

Of course those relays weren't around when I or we were in NNHS because both Julie Conn and Thad Madden were still coaching us local high school kids. But there were the Norfolk-Virginian Pilot Relays. So I thought I would send a clipping from the1960 Relays.

  There were local high schools running
relays and invitational events and they also brought
in some big name Olympic talent. The 1960 Relays
featured pole vaulter Don Bragg and sprinter Dave
, both Olympic athletes. The 'big' stars brought
in the crowds but the local headlines were two
Peninsula stars, NNHS shot putter Don Carroll '60 and
WHS high jumper George Leonard '60, both setting meet
1960 Norfolk Relays

I hope you enjoy,
Robert Price '61

   Thank you so much, Robert! I've posted your clippings:

   From Jerry Blanchard ('62) of VA - 04/04/07 - "BANANAS":

I found this to be very interesting. Thought everyone might be interested..

Jerry Blanchard (62)


A professor at CCNY for a physiological psych class told his class about bananas.  He said the expression "going bananas" is from the effects of bananas on the brain.  Read on:

Never, ever put your banana in the refrigerator!!!

This is interesting.

After reading this, you'll never look at a banana in the same way again.

Bananas contain three natural sugars - sucrose, fructose and glucose combined with fiber. A banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy.


Research has proven that just two bananas provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout. No wonder the banana is the number one fruit with the world's leading athletes.

But energy isn't the only way a banana can help us keep fit. It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily diet.

Depression: According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND amongst people suffering from depression, many felt much better after eating a banana. This is because bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier.

PMS: Forget the pills - eat a banana. The vitamin B6 it contains regulates blood glucose levels, which can affect your mood.

Anemia : High in iron, bananas can stimulate the production of hemoglobin in the blood and so helps in cases of anemia.

Blood Pressure: This unique tropical fruit is extremely high in potassium yet low in salt, making it perfect to beat blood pressure. So much so, the US Food and Drug Administration has just allowed the banana industry to make official claims for the fruit's ability to reduce the risk of blood pressure and stroke.

Brain Power: 200 students at a Twickenham (Middlesex) school ( England ) were helped through their exams this year by eating bananas at breakfast, break, and lunch in a bid to boost their brain power. Research has shown that the potassium-packed fruit can assist learning by making pupils more alert.

Constipation: High in fiber, including bananas in the diet can help restore normal bowel action, helping to overcome the problem without resorting to laxatives.

Hangovers: One of the quickest ways of curing a hangover is to make a banana milkshake, sweetened with honey.. The banana calms the stomach and, with the help of the honey, builds up depleted blood sugar levels, while the milk soothes and re-hydrates your system.

Heartburn: Bananas have a natural antacid effect in the body, so if you suffer from heartburn, try eating a banana for soothing relief.

Morning Sickness: Snacking on bananas between meals helps to keep blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness

Mosquito bites: Before reaching for the insect bite cream, try rubbing the affected area with the inside of a banana skin. Many people find it amazingly successful at reducing swelling and irritation.

Nerves: Bananas are high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system.

Overweight and at work? Studies at the Institute of Psychology in Austria found pressure at work leads to gorging on comfort food like chocolate and chips. Looking at 5,000 hospital patients, researchers found the most obese were more likely to be in high-pressure jobs. The report concluded that, to avoid panic-induced food cravings, we need to control our blood sugar levels by snacking on high carbohydrate foods every two hours to keep levels steady.

Ulcers: The banana is used as the dietary food against intestinal disorders because of its soft texture and smoothness. It is the only raw fruit that can be eaten without distress in over-chronicler cases. It also neutralizes over-acidity and reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach.

Temperature control: Many other cultures see bananas as a "cooling" fruit that can lower both the physical and emotional temperature of expectant mothers. In Thailand, for example, pregnant women eat bananas to ensure their baby is born with a cool temperature.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD): Bananas can help SAD sufferers because they contain the natural mood enhancer tryptophan.

Smoking &Tobacco Use: Bananas can also help people trying to give up smoking. The B6, B12 they contain, as well as the potassium and magnesium found in them, help the body recover from the effects of nicotine withdrawal.

Stress: Potassium is a vital mineral, which helps normalize the heartbeat, sends oxygen to the brain and regulates your body's water balance. When we are stressed, our metabolic rate rises, thereby reducing our potassium levels. These can be rebalanced with the help of a high-potassium banana snack.

Strokes: According to research in The New England Journal of Medicine, eating bananas as part of a regular diet can cut the risk of death by strokes by as much as 40%!

Warts: Those keen on natural alternatives swear that if you want to kill off a wart, take a piece of banana skin and place it on the wart, with the yellow side out. Carefully hold the skin in place with a plaster or surgical tape!

So, a banana really is a natural remedy for many ills. When you compare it to an apple, it has four times the protein, twice the carbohydrate, three times the phosphorus, five times the vitamin A and iron, and twice the other vitamins and minerals. It is also rich in potassium and is one of the best value foods around So maybe its time to change that well-known phrase so that we say, "A banana a day keeps the doctor away!"


PS: Bananas must be the reason monkeys are so happy all the time! I will add one here; want a quick shine on your shoes?? Take the INSIDE of the banana skin, and rub directly on the shoe...polish with dry cloth. Amazing fruit !!! 

 WOWZERS!!!  Who knew all these things?!?  Thank you, Jerry!

(have??)  They also made the BEST wedding cake ever!!  I'm salivating just thinking about it.  I believe Mrs. Crum is in a nursing home in Hampton - the same one my mom was in for re-hab when her hip broke 1 1/2 yrs ago.  I have a friend who works there and she tries to get recipes from her but she's not giving!!!  I think she ought to do a cookbook - that'll sell!  Take care!

    From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 04/06/07 - "Gretna means business.":

Hi, Carol:
Gretna Means Business
The photograph you took of the overhead directional signs cracked me up. While I find it rather amusing that some of the TYPHOON Basketball players would refer to Gretna when making a point about the aggressive fighting spirit of the residents, I often wondered how such a reference came about back in the 50's.

I even searched for some reference to perhaps a civil war unit that formed from this community known for valor that might have been the basis for such slang but came up empty. Maybe just the name was enough to conjure up some image of a burly fist-fighter. Perhaps we will never solve this mystery.

1.   From Brenda Amos Williams ('62) of VA - 03/16/07 - "Re: HELLO":

Hi Carol,

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 WORK!

   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.

2.     From Dave Arnold ('65) of VA - 03/18/07 - "60th Birthday Party":

If you would be so kind as to post this on your site, we would certainly appreciate the assistance.
The NNHS 1965 Reunion Team is back in action!  As much as we may not like it, we must face the fact that the majority of us will have our 60th birthday this year.  Even though we've only been out of school "a few years", we have verified that 60 is the correct number.  The 55th picnic was well received, so we're going to do the same thing for the 60th. 
Mark your calendars for Saturday, June 30, 2007.  We'll be meeting at Shelter #4 at Newport News Park on Jefferson Avenue in Newport News from 2:00 - 6:00 p.m.   After some discussion among the Reunion Team, we decided this would be an open event with all NNHS classes welcome.  If you haven't yet reached 60, it will afford an opportunity to practice.  If you have, you can act like Jack Benny and move back a few years.  No matter the case, all are welcome.
It's never too early to make plans, so mark your calendar today and we'll follow up shortly with further information.  If you have any questions please contact Dave Arnold at (757) 618-6646.  We look forward to seeing you in June!

Dave Arnold

   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":

Supporters for saving Buckroe's Lots B as a professionally designed Bayfront city park.  with ample off-street public parking,  need to be aware there is still action you can take in the latest attempt to save Buckroe's Lots B as a magnificent bay front city park.
Even though Council picked Option B for Lots B on January 24, and Option B calls for the development of two of Buckroe's Lots B with residential housing, those lots cannot be sold to any developer without first going through a public hearing.   Until that time arrives, Hampton City Council needs to continue hearing from the public, and the public as a whole needs to know there is still hope.   Option B can be viewed on
The latest hope to save Lots B as a park has come up because of Hampton's new $200M Plan for the Crossroads Entertainment Complex which is scheduled to be developed in the Coliseum/Convention Center area.  
A Daily Press story on February 16 indicated Crossroads is going to need every ounce of help, vision and imagination a city government can commit in order to vie with the other entertainment venues in the area because, with seven, Hampton Roads  is thought to have more live-performance theaters per capita than any market in the country.
The following Letter to the Editor was printed in today's Daily Press.  It may explain the situation a little better but it also outlines what actions can be taken by anyone still concerned about saving Buckroe's Lots B for our now and future generations.
Why can't Council see the immense value of having both a Crossroads and a beautiful Bay front park, two uniquely different visitor-welcoming attractions,  to tout versus only one?    Further, if Buckroe is destroyed for thousands  by this Council and city staff, and if Crossroads doesn't make it, what unique attraction is Hampton going to be able to offer visitors and tourists in the future?
Why can't Council recognize visitors and tourists want beaches,  and if they don't find something welcoming and attractive in Buckroe they are going to travel to Yorktown or Virginia Beach.   And, believe me, after tourists have spent a long tiring round-trip to those beaches, either through the tunnel or on the interstate, they are not going to want to attend anything that night, no matter how entertaining.
How much better would it be for Hampton and the Crossroads Entertainment Complex to be able to advertise:
Please let Hampton City Council hear your thoughts on developing Buckroe into a welcoming, attractive world class city park to market along beside the Crossroads entertainment complex, and vice versa.  
Thank you.  Sandra Canepa

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.

Quarter to Three

SOME NOTES: Daddy "G" and the Church Street Five were from Norfolk, as was Gary Bonds.
Daddy "G" was Gene Barge, and the Church Street was, indeed the one in Norfolk.
Those songs and many others with the "Norfolk Sound" were produced and often written
by Frank Guida, who was Norfolk's version of Phil Spector.

- Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 03/08/05
WOWZERONI!  Thanks, Dave!

(Gary "U.S." Bonds)

Don't you know that I danced, I danced till a quarter to three
With the help, last night, of Daddy G.
He was swingin on the sax like a nobody could
And I was dancin' all over the room.
Oh, don't you know the people were dancin' like they were mad,
it was the swingin'est band they had, ever had.
It was the swingin'est song that could ever be,
It was a night with Daddy G.
Let me tell you now,
I never had it so good
Yeah and I know you never could
Until you get hip with that jive
And take a band like the Church Street Five.
Oh don't you know that I danced,
I danced till a quarter to three
With the help last night of Daddy G.
Everybody was as happy as they could be
And they were swingin with Daddy G.
Blow Daddy!
Let me tell you now,
I never had it so good
Yeah and I know you never could
Until you get hip with that jive
And take a band like the Church Street Five.
Oh don't you know that I danced,
I danced till a quarter to three
With the help last night of Daddy G.
He was swingin on the sax like a nobody could,
and I was dancin all over the room
Oh don't you know the
Dance, do bee wa dah
Dance, do bee wah dah
You can dance, do bee wah dah,
You can dance, dance, dance.
