MORE HOMEWORK:

From http://www.october15th.com/:

Remembering Our Babies: This special day of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance is October 15th of every year. This site was created to provide support, education, and awareness for those who are suffering or may know someone who suffered a miscarriage, an ectopic pregnancy, a still birth, or the loss of an infant.

   My first and last pregnancies ended in miscarriage, plus I had two more sandwiched between the births of my seven children. After all these years I continue to mourn all four losses.


NEWBIES:

1. Edward Bew (June '36) of AZ - 10/12/17:

As I wrote to the Daily Press, I just celebrated my 99th birthday. Are there any other known survivors of the NNHS Class of '36? Perhaps there are descendants of members of this class.
I would like to hear from anyone with connections to this class.

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 10/14/15:

“In ancient Greece, runners competed in a relay race called a lampadedromia.1 In the race, runners held a torch in their hand and passed it on to the next runner until the final member of the team crossed the finish line. The prize wasn’t awarded to the team that ran fastest—it was awarded to the first team to reach the finish line with its torch still lit. There is a profound lesson here, one taught by prophets ancient and modern: while it is important to start the race, it is even more important that we finish with our torch still lit.”

- Dieter F. Uchtdorf
(b. 06 Nov 1940)

    Thanks so much, Susan!


From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 10/15/17:

   Thank you, Joan!
 
 


      From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 10/11/17, 6:09 PM and 6:40 PM - "Class of June 1936":

You are in luck. One of the few Beacon/Anchor issues I have is the June 1936...

Sadly, there is no text listing of the graduating seniors, only the 14 pages of their photos and bios. Not too tough to scan all 14 pages.

David

... Well, that didn’t take so long to do.

The hard work is trying to determine and locate surviving members to put together with Mr. Bew.

Note our history teacher Frances Maguire (22 Jan 1918 - 01 Oct 1993) on Beacon page 13.

   WOWZERONI! Thank you so very much, David! It may not have been so difficult for you, but that much scanning would have made me even more bonkers than I already am.

    Another image that popped right out at me on page 15 was that of Thomas N. Downing (01 Feb 1919 - 23 Oct 2001). There were several others as well, but I'll save them for another Newsletter.

   Meanwhile...

Blinded by the Light

Written and recorded by Bruce Springsteen, 1973
(b. 23 Sept 1949)

Recorded by
Manfred Mann's Earth Band, 1976
(b. 21 Oct 1940)
 

Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night
Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night
Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night
Madman drummers bummers,
Indians in the summer with a teenage diplomat
In the dumps with the mumps as the adolescent pumps his way into his hat
With a boulder on my shoulder, feelin' kinda older,
I tripped the merry-go-round
With this very unpleasin', sneezin' and wheezin,
the calliope crashed to the ground
The calliope crashed to the ground
But she was...
Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
runner in the night
Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night
Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night
Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night
Some silicone sister with a manager mister told me I go what it takes
She said "I'll turn you on sonny to something strong,
play the song with the funky break"
And go-cart Mozart was checkin' out the weather chart to see if it was safe outside
And little Early-Pearly came by in his curly-wurly and asked me if I needed a ride
Asked me if I needed a ride
But she was...
Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night
Blinded by the light
She got down but she never got tired
She's gonna make it through the night
She's gonna make it through the night
But mama, that's where the fun is
But mama, that's where the fun is
Mama always told me not to look into the eye's of the sun
But mama, that's where the fun is
Some brimstone baritone anticyclone rolling stone preacher from the east
Says, "Dethrone the dictaphone, hit it in it's funny bone,
that's where they expect it least"
And some new-mown chaperone was standin' in the corner,
watching the young girls dance
And some fresh-sown moonstone was messin' with his frozen zone, reminding him of romance
The calliope crashed to the ground
But she was...
Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night
Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night
Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night
Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night
Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night
Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night
Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night
Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night
Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night
Blinded by the light
Madman drummers bummers, Indians in the summer with a teenage diplomat
In the dumps with the mumps as the adolescent pumps his way into his hat
With a boulder on my shoulder, feelin' kinda older,
I tripped the merry-go-round
With this very unpleasin', sneezin' and wheezin,
the calliope crashed to the ground
Now Scott with a slingshot finally found a tender spot and throws his lover in the sand
And some bloodshot forget-me-not said daddy's within earshot save the buckshot, turn up the band
Some silicone sister with a manager mister told me I go what it takes
She said "I'll turn you on sonny to something strong"
