“Affluence separates people. Poverty knits 'em together.
You got some sugar and I don't; I borrow some of yours.
Next month you might not have any flour; well,
I'll give you some of mine.”

Ray Charles
(23 Sept 1930 - 10 June 2004)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

  We repeat this theme song every year on this day in honor of Sarah Sugah's birthday!

BONUS - - Sugar Sugar - The Archies, 1969


"Sugar, Sugar" is a pop song written by Jeff Barry and Andy Kim. It was a four-week 1969 number-one hit single by fictional characters The Archies. Produced by Jeff Barry, the song was originally released on the album Everything's Archie. The album is the product of a group of studio musicians managed by Don Kirshner. Ron Dante's lead vocals were accompanied by those of Toni Wine (who sang the line "I'm gonna make your life so sweet"), and Andy Kim. Together they provided the voices of the Archies using multitracking.

When the song was initially released, Kirshner had promotion men play it for radio station execs without telling them the name of the group (due to the somewhat disappointing chart performance of the Archies' previous single, "Bang-Shang-a-Lang," which went to #22 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts). Only after most of the DJs liked the song were they told that it was performed by a cartoon group. The Archies’ hit wound up as one of the biggest (and most unexpected) #1 hits of the year, one of the biggest bubblegum hits of all time, both in America and in Great Britain, thanks partly to association with the hit CBS-TV Saturday morning cartoon series.

The Archies' "Sugar, Sugar" was the 1969 number-one single of the year...


From John Scull ('64) of VA to       Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 09/05/17, 6:55 PM - "Information on the deaths of NNHS grads...":


I'm not sure how you want to work this, but I have the info and if you would forward it to the site manager, I would be grateful.

My brother was Robert C. Scull, Class of 1952. He was born on July 29, 1934 and passed away on February 17, 2016 at the age of 81. He died from complications to a COPD condition.

My sister was Peggy Louise Hodge, nee Scull, Class of 1960. She was born on April 18, 1942 and passed away on February 6, 2016 at the age of 73.

I don't actually know the cause of death for my sister. It was a confusing time, with the funerals several hundred miles apart on consecutive days on the same weekend. I was in charge of my brother's and had to miss my sister's.

I suspect there might be old friends and classmates out there that would like to know. Both obituaries are out there if you Google them. There may be information there that the site manager would want. Let me know if I need to do more.


       From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 09/05/17, 7:35 PM:


It is a good thing that you are doing. Old classmates DO care about these things and will appreciate knowing about your siblings.

  Carol Buckley (Harty) NNHS 1965 will be honored to post the information on the appropriate class pages in the In-Memoriam section.

If you have any photos of them which you would want to accompany the entry, please send them to me. Carol may scan their senior year Anchor photos.


    Gentlemen, thank you so much for the information. I didn't see it last night, but I've been processing it all morning.

   John, I can barely conceive of the unfortunate timing of the deaths of your two siblings. You have my deepest sympathies.

Peggy Scull Hodge - Class of 1960

Robert Scull - Class of 1952
