Message: Just wanted to give a quick thank you to Kathy Tift and Pat Wingo for arranging the ladies reunion for the class of '62 last weekend. It was just wonderful and so good to see many close friends that I hadn't seen in way too long. I am so impressed with the accomplishments of these women over the past 40+ years as well as their many recent successes. HHS and its teachers did well by the gals of '62! I look forward to many of the future get-togethers we brain stormed on! Best, Janet

Message: A bit tardy with the birthday wish John. Lonnie Donegan puts my feelings into lyrical form that expresses how I feel: "A B C double X Y Z -- the cats in the cupboard and she cain't see me." As everything relates to sports on some level, I couldn't find any professional team that has retired the number 64. Jim Hess wore 64 for the '64 scarlet & gold. That same uniform may be purchased on eBay for 64 cents (plus shipping and handling). I'll ingest 64oz of an adult beverage to commemorate the occasion. Take the rest of the day off Cougars. John's Birthday is treated as a national holiday in my household.

Message: Jessie Koehn's(74) comment on the vacant lot at Doty and 118th street. Well the Hawthorne community group that wanted to buy the land, lost its years long battle to convert the blighted vacant lot into a park this week when the City Council voted not to support the effort. On Tuesday night, the plan failed to get three votes needed for passage, leaving the door open for a business owner and longtime campaign contributor of Mayor Larry Guidi and his cronies to buy the lot. Well John it's more likely than not, the Mayor will get an email from me. The good-old boys always get their way. Happy birthday John and everyone have a safe Labor Day weekend.

Message: good morning fellow Cougars! I hope everyone has a great Labor Day weekend filled with family, food and fun! I was reading the LA Times this morn...and for any of you that may be interested there is an article in the California section of the paper regarding a vacant lot at Doty and 118th. I think this woman is doing and good thing and maybe, just maybe Cougartown can help her out.

Message: I see Hawthorne City Council 2008-09 fiscal year budget of slightly more than $143.1 million was approved on a 4-0 vote Tuesday night. It includes $52.5 million for the general city operating fund and has a $69,000 surplus. The city anticipates a $10.1 million reserve by the end of the fiscal year. My question is...can the City Council help Hawthorne High's Athletic Program?

Message: Happy Birthday wishes to one of the best people I have ever known. John, you have changed lives. What started out as your personal yearning to recapture and enjoy the memories of youth has become a journey and adventure for thousands. Not a lot of people can claim that....but you can. And I am so happy to be on that journey with you as are all of the CT faithful. I wish you the happiest day, #64. I'll bet if we asked Ella V what she could tell us about this day 64 years ago, she'd remark that "It was a very good day." And it was and continues to be. Love you much - see you soon. XOXO

Message: Hey does this count as a Cougar siting if I just heard about it? Jim Villanueva ('76) was asked by Konnie Krislock to speak at her Journalism Workshop at Long Beach State on Aug 13. She also asked if he could bring his daughter to class because she is an Associate Publicist in the music biz. He was a very proud father as he watched his daughter wow the class! He has a new blog up
that talks about how it went and also a lot of other stuff related his 21 years in the radio and music industry. It's really interesting if you're a big music fan (or just want to see a current pic of Konnie!). Jim's also a good trivia source for anyone needing to know ANYthing about music!

City & State: Athens, Greece
Message: John, Happy birthday! How does it feel to be over 41? I haven?t seen your name on either the Republican or Democrat ticket. An oversight I guess. You really ought to consider running for a seat on the city council. Maybe that way taxpayers could get some funds for important pursuits like sports, art, modern dance, and music in schools. Fat chance! Weren?t we lucky that some liberals thought those things were important when we were in school??? Take care Cougars and maybe this will stir things up on the feedback. Again, wishing you a hundred more years Johnny boy. Jim Peppers
