07/14/09 - NNHS Newsletter - Bastille Day

“Allons enfants de la patrie,
Le jour de gloire est arrivé.”

- Claude Joseph Rouget de Lisle, 25 Apr 1792
(10 May 1760 - 26  June 1836)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   I'm sure there's some perfectly good explanation why we've never observed this French holiday here together before.  At the moment, nothing really comes to mind.....

   In honor of the day,        my #5 son, Nathaniel (Harty - Hillsboro HS, IL - '97 - of IL) suggested this 1975 song by Rush.

BONUS #1 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V7yxA9vt2-c - Bastille Day - Rush, 1976

   Now, truth be known, I must say I am really NOT a Rush fan.  Their music seems to have the same effect on me as Robert Schumann's:

   Although the two genres are miles and decades apart, the general effect of both on me is just a noisy and cacophonous assault on my ears, causing me to want to run and and scream and throw things.   Nevertheless, how can I ignore a song called, "Bastille Day"?!?  Thanks, Nathaniel!

      From Harry Covert ('57) of Northern VA - 07/13/09 - "Daniel School with Miss Martin and Lou Gehrig":

Carol:

I have wonderful memories of John W. Daniel School in Newport News when Mr. Baines was the principal, a wonderful lady Miss Rebecca Reames was my 5th grade teacher; Miss Martin was our good teacher in the 6th grade and Miss Smith in the 7th.

I have a column you may want to use:

As a baseball fan, I couldn't resist the Lou Gehrig story which fits, at least to me, my days at  Daniel School ... in the early 1950s before we went to the great Newport News High School.

http://harrycovert.wordpress.com/2009/07/12/miss-martin-and-lou-gehrig/

Harry

Usually on Thursdays in the spring, Miss Martin read Homer’s Iliad to her sixth graders at John W. Daniel School. The windows were raised and we little tykes hoped a breeze would flow through the room. We didn’t have air conditioning in 1950.

Miss Martin favored white tee-shirts all the time and looked exactly like Benjamin Franklin. No kidding. When I look at a $100 bill today, I see her staring right at me. If any of us 30-plus pupils had been caught misbehaving a bit, she didn’t keep us after class, which they could do easily in those days. Instead, she had her own clever punishment — three or four long-division arithmetic problems: dividing long numbers like 899,765,343 by 1487.

This was a challenge to a 10-year-old, especially if you had to turn them in the next morning. We were a bunch of sweet attentive boys and girls, seldom if ever drawing the ire of our teacher who never missed a day.

We loved the Iliad stories as Miss Martin read to us out loud. Usually once a month, she would give a little quiz, not for grades but to see if we were paying attention about Achilles and the Trojan Horse. If we needed a little help with the answers, she could show a soft side and help us.

Miss Martin came to my mind last week during the July 4 homage paid to the great baseball player Lou Gehrig on the 70th anniversary of his famous “luckiest man on the face of the earth” speech. Gehrig was the Yankees’ No. 4, the iron man who played 2,130 consecutive games from June 1, 1925 to April 30, 1939. This record remained for 61 years until Baltimore’s Cal Ripken Jr., broke it September 19, 1998, at 2,632.

On that day, July 4, 1939 Gehrig was forced to retire because of what we know today as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. He died at age 38 in 1941.

In Miss Martin’s class some 59 years ago, I remember vividly as we pulled out the Iliad for our afternoon session. She began in a pleasant reading manner. Today it seems she reached the Trojan Horse part when I slipped in front of my book, the 1942 orange-covered biography of Lou Gehrig. As she droned on, I forgot about the Iliad. I got lost in the story where little Lou went eel fishing for his mother in the World War I era. He’d bring home his catch, his mother would pickle them and then Lou returned to Second Avenue in East Harlem, New York City, to sell the goodies.

I “traveled” that afternoon with Lou as he grew to be a football player at Columbia and then on to became the baseball hero of the Yankees.

Suddenly, I heard a voice, “What page are you on?” Miss Martin roared. Naturally I thought she was talking to someone else. I stuttered a bit, tried to sneak Gehrig back in my lap. She kept on, “Can you tell me about the Trojans?” Fear struck at the moment. My classmates laughed.

In my book that afternoon it was 1932, not with the Greeks. Gehrig had just hit four home runs in a game against the Philadelphia Athletics. The first player to do so in the 20th century.

Miss Martin ordered me to the front of class. She seized my Gehrig book. My penalty was to collect all of the Homer’s Iliad books from the class.

She apparently forgot to give me the long-division problems. The next morning, she allowed us to go to the library. It was Principal Thomas E. Baines who returned the Gehrig book to me. His advise was short and sweet: "don’t read it in Miss Martin’s class.”

To this day I’ve never eaten eels. #

   WILD GIGGLES! I remember reading that little Lou Gehrig biography myself, Harry, although I was in Mrs. Gladys Curry's 4th grade class at Magruder School when I did so. And   Mr. Baines was later our principal there as well! Thanks for the great recollection!

   And speaking of baseball, don't forget the All-Star game tonight:


From http://www.mlb.com/mlb/events/all_star/y2009/index.jsp -  07/14/09 - "All-Star Game 2009":

"After a ceremonial first pitch from President Obama, the Giants' Tim Lincecum will make the first pitch for the National League to the Mariners' Ichiro Suzuki while the Blue Jays' Roy Halladay will start for the American League in the All-Star Game in St. Louis at 8 p.m. Tuesday on FOX."


   From Fred Field (June '45) of CA - 07/13/09 - "Time and Place":

Hello Carol,        Mon. July 13, 09

  Joan Ownby Mathieson ('58 - of VA) wonders about when Stuart Gardens was built.  I'm firm about construction being well in progress in Summer 1942 as I described in issue 6-20-09 about my brush with the dynamiting.  In checking my records I find that the contract to build Stuart Gardens was signed in 1940. My guess is that the construction probably started in 1941 and was completed by late 1942.

Prior to the onset of construction (about 1941) the only trees of any size were between what is now 16th Street and the water front.  In 1918 the Army had left a strip of large trees along the bluff near the waterfront. There was not much beach front then.  Between the bluff and the water were marshy wetlands, without much sand.  In the construction of Stuart Gardens a vast amount of mud and sand were gobbled up by offshore dredges and pumped onto the mainland, creating a conventional beachfront and covering up remaining patches of low lying areas.  By late 1942 the old trees were all gone and the landscape was leveled (even the small hills of the Old Dominion Golf Course disappeared).

What I was less certain about was the construction of the Stuart Gardens Shopping Center on Wickham Avenue and the Hygeia Skating Rink across the street.

   Thanks again, Fred! I find this knowledge of my beloved beach quite fascinating! I've BEGUN posting all this:

          http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/stuart-gardens.html

My Feb. 45 Anchor has a combination ad for the 
 Palace, Wythe and Stuart Theaters (all three owned by the same family).  There is also an ad for the Hygeia Roller Rink on the corner of Hampton and Wickham Avenues. Earlier Anchors do not mention the Stuart Theater or the Hygeia.

The Daily Press microfilms could easily nail down when the theater opened.  The first ads appearing for the Stuart Theater should be easy to find.

The Hygeia Rink debut may take more searching. I doubt that it was really part of the Stuart Gardens Shopping Center project.

The microfilms are available in the Virginiana room of NN Public Library on Main Street in Hilton.

Don't go there if you are allergic to local history.

Nostalgic best wishes, Fred

    From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 07/13/09 - "Some Comments":

Hi,

Tell       Jerry Blanchard ('62 - of VA) that Penny Norton (_________________________ - email available upon request) may be able to help locate graduate information.  Penny is in charge of all student record management for Newport News Public Schools.  Virginia state law requires the storage of students for 75 years.  Penny and her staff do an outstanding job of managing the storage of these records.

My parents purchased their 1st home, which was brand new, in 1941.  This house was on 15th Street just west of  Wickham Avenue. So I assume that the whole Stuart Gardens (and Christopher Shores) neighborhoods would have been developed in stages.  At the time my father (who was a naval architect) worked at the Dodge Plant developing landing crafts used in WWII. 

A side note:  My husband  Dick (Krause - '56 / '57) (05 Feb 1939 - 27 Dec 1999) grew up in the 600 block of 26th Street.  Recently, I was driving through that neighborhood.  All of the older homes running from about 23rd street to 28th or so have been torn down.  Blocks and blocks of new homes have been built.  I don't know what planet I live on, but I was completely unaware of this happening.  Walter Reed School and Orcutt Baptist Church are still there.  But there are a lot of changes.  I did know that Habitat for Humanity had built several homes in the East End.  The whole area has been renovated. 

Happy Summer, Sweet Carol.

Joan Lauterbach Krause

   WOWZERS!!! That's certainly a lot of useful information for us! Thanks so much, Joan!


    From the President of the Class of 1965, Joe Wingo of NC - 07/13/09 - "        Brent (Harty - Hillsboro HS, IL - '90 - of TX)":

Hi Carol,

Just a short note to tell you how much I agree with your son Brent’s views on patriotism and personal accountability.

He represents the future of this great country and I’m so proud to hear him voice his views; views I totally agree with. I still get emotional when I sing the National Anthem or hear the Marine Corps Hymn. God Bless America does that to me too, as does I’m Proud to be an American.

Having a “Devil Dog’ as a father, I was raised to be proud to be an American and to take responsibility for my actions. I think our generation as a whole was raised that way. That standard of conduct seems to be waning and that is bothersome. Doing the right thing has never seemed that complicated to me and it gets less so the older I get.

Brent is obviously a fine young man and one we all can feel a sense of pride in. I sincerely hope his associates feel as strongly.

Hope you and your family are well.

All my best and I salute you, Brent.

Joe

   Joe, you Sweetie-Pie!
You really choked me up here to the extent I found it difficult to find adequate words..... Thank you so much!    


    From Linda May Bond Crayton ('66) of VA - 07/13/09 - "man dancer":

Hi Carol,

Hope you are all well.

I think it was the fourth newsletter back that
   Judy Phillips Allen ('66 - of VA) let us watch the ballet dancers with the missing arm and leg.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LnLVRQCjh8c

I watched it twice trying to understand why this man looked more of a man than anyone I had seen in a long time.
His grace, of course, but mostly I think it was the way he held his back straight and his shoulders squared.
Our men have lost this some place. Sad.

Linda May '66

   OHHH! That's what it was! Well, yeah, some of them sadly have lost it; blessedly, not all, though. I must admit it isn't seen as often now as in days of yore. Thanks for your insight, Linda May!


    From Glenn Dye ('60) of TX - 07/13/09 - "boarding houses:

Carol

I remember when I worked in the shipyard, there were some of the old houses that some of the people along the streets like 39th and up turned the into boarding houses, renting out rooms and feeding the shipyard employees for lunch. There was one I used to go to every day. It was Mr. Wilson's house; he really fixed some great meals. I wondered if any one else out there ever went to any of those boarding houses.

Glenn

   Hmmm. Thanks, Glenn! The existence of such places sounds completely reasonable; I wonder why I'd never thought of them before?? I have no personal knowledge whatsoever of such places, but then I was a creature of habit, and stuck to my own tried and true paths for lunchtime - say, the Dog House or Woolworth's , for instance. Besides, my short little legs would never have allowed me to walk fast enough to go that far on our lunch break; my feet barely reached the floor as it was. (Don't think about that one for too long.....)

   Soooo, how 'bout it, Sweetie-Pies??

   "Anyone? Anyone?"


  From Jamey Douglas Bacon ('66) of VA - 07/13/09 - "A picture for you":

A nice picture of my grandkids on Hilton Pier.

Jamey

   Oh, WOW! That IS a nice picture! Thank you, Jamey!

   And I know this will sound totally unfathomable to you, Jamey dear, but after pondering the question for 2-1/2 years, I'm relatively certain that I've never seen Hilton Pier - no, not once! While I lived in Newport News, it was just toooo far away from Stuart Gardens.  And once I moved away, there simply was never the time.  I passed through Main Street in Hilton Village many times, of course, but I was too busy gawking at all the lovely historic homes and buildings.  Actually, I'm not even certain I was ever even aware of the existence of Hilton Pier (yes, I've always lived in a Dixie Cup!), so I appreciate your sharing this image and your memories with us!

Summer
 

  Age Vs. Wisdom
 
Summer season brings
Colors to the face of earth
As season's birds sings

Summer season is
Warmest of all the seasons
Weaving dreams of bliss

Season of summer
Fills heart and soul with laughter
Like blooming flower

Summer brings shimmer
By benevolence of nature
In beams of glimmer

Summer's arrival
Signals fun and festivals
And soul's revival

Summer is warmer
Shining brighter is the sun
Solace is water

  Summer's diverse sounds
Is the nature's symphony
Without doubt astounds

Summer is the best
To feel the comfort of breeze
Which needs no attest

Summer is the peak
For the soul of sun to shine
And it is unique

Summer is for fun
Soaking in sweat and water
And is never done

Summer holidays
Sprinkles delight everywhere
In so many ways

Summer is the time
To think of spring and autumn
As it is sublime

An 86 year old guy loves to fish. He was sitting in his boat the other day when he heard a voice say, "Pick me up."

He looked around and couldn't see any one. He thought he was dreaming when he heard the voice say again, "Pick me up." He looked in the water and there, floating on the top was a frog.

The man said, "Are you talking to me?"

The frog said, "Yes, I'm talking to you. Pick me up. Then, kiss me and I'll turn into the most beautiful woman you have ever seen. I'll make sure that all your friends are envious and jealous because you will have me as your bride."

The man looked at the frog for a short time, reached over, picked it up carefully, and placed it in his front breast pocket.

Then the frog said, "What, are you nuts? Didn't you hear what I said? I said kiss me and I will be your beautiful bride."

He opened his pocket, looked at the frog and said, "Nah, at my age I'd rather have a talking frog."

From http://www.selfgrowth.com - 07/13/09 - "Life Transitions":

How to Save Your Sanity During Life Transitions - By Tolu Adeleye, Ph.D.

Life is full of changes, and transitioning from one stage or position to another is a natural part of daily living. Unfortunately, some of those changes -- like divorce, job loss, or the death of someone close to you -- are imposed on you most often by circumstances beyond your control. What more, such imposed changes often happen in the blink of an eye.

One minute you're securely employed, and the next minute you're packing up your desk because the company's been sold. One minute you're happily married, and the next your spouse is saying that he or she doesn't love you anymore. One minute you're laughing with your sister, and the next you're watching her slip away on a hospital bed. Such unexpected events can leave you emotionally and spiritually reeling.

On the other hand, you often welcome life transitions such as marriage and improved career status as positive changes because you have long desired and planned ahead for them. You are full of excitement when you get married or welcome a new baby into your family after months of expectation and planning. Your joy knows no limit when you get that new job or career that you have always wanted or move to your recently purchased new home. However, though positive, these desired life transitions can also take their toil on you in significant ways.

How do you save your sanity when going through difficult changes? How do you ensure that you'll be able to make it through life transitions and come out a whole person on the other side?

Here are a few tips to help you navigate through your period of change:

1. Take time to pause and mourn about your loss. Mourning involves acknowledging that something you owned or an old way of life is gone. It may be an old job, a loved one, or a state of singleness (for a new marriage). Adequate mourning in your own way is essential if you are to successfully move forward after the period of change.

2. Celebrate the past and carry the lessons learnt forward. Identify key achievements or acquisitions in the past that you are leaving behind. If you are moving to a new home, create an album of memories and have a going-away party. If the loss is an imposed one, try and find noble causes to celebrate even though it may be challenging.

3. Examine your options for your new status or position. Make a list of resources that can help you with making informed decisions about your new way of life. If you are seeking a new job or career, visit your library/online job boards, attend networking parties, and speak to human resources consultants. Take time to gather information and connect with appropriate people.

4. Maintain a constructive attitude. Focus on the positive aspects of the change that will help you rise above the challenges of the negative ones. You do not have to get stuck in the muddy paths of life transitions. Learn that you can use your change as a stepping stone to greater fulfillment.

Life transitions could be challenging, but with the right attitude and perspective, you can stay sane through the change and live an enriched life on the other side.

Thought you might like these...love bh

  Some old fashioned  Patriotism.

I wonder whatever happened to this kind of thinking in America. I got a lump in my throat when I read this..  I "grew up" thinking: patriotism, it is the AMERICAN  way!  I am glad to see that somebody saved these. The statement at the end says it all!

 
 

These were our parents. What in God's name have we let happen to our Country? We were taught these values and then we let them die .....  I guess we are the last generation to see, or even remember anything like these? Whatever happened? Political correctness (or "re-education") happened, lack of God's name happened, lack of personal responsibility happened, lack of personal integrity and honesty happened, lack of respect and loyalty to our country happened, lack of being an American happened.

Bastille Day

Words by Neil Peart
(b. 12 Sept 1952)

Music by Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson

(Rush, 1975)


There's no bread, let them eat cake
There's no end to what they'll take
Flaunt the fruits of noble birth
Wash the salt into the earth

But they're marching to bastille day la guillotine will claim
Her bloody prize free the dungeons of the innocent the king
Will kneel, and let his kingdom rise

Bloodstained velvet, dirty lace
Naked fear on every face
See them bow their heads to die
As we would bow as they rode by

And we're marching to bastille day la guillotine will claim
Her bloody prize sing, o choirs of cacophony the king has
Kneeled, to let his kingdom rise

Lessons taught but never learned
All around us anger burns
Guide the future by the past
Long ago the mould was cast

For they marched up to bastille day la guillotine -- claimed
Her bloody prize hear the echoes of the centuries power isn't
All that money buys
