We found out this week that she has lung cancer and it is in the final stages so the Doctors say please keep her in your prayers. Then both of my sons tell us that we are going to grandparents again. We think one each, great. Well last night my youngest son and his wife and two kids come over and break the news... twins (girls), so we have gone from three to six grandkids in one fine step. Have a good week all, Art

Message: So John were you really up north visiting or were you making a cameo appearance on the new TV series, Hawthorne? I had a Cougar sighting on Saturday at LAX. As I was walking through the metal detector the security guy noticed my Cougartown Tshirt. He asked if that was for Hawthorne High School. I said yes and that I was the class of 74. He replied he was the class of 2000. I told him to go to cougartown.com. I didn?t get his name. I thought about going over and asking him but thought I might be shot if I approached a security guard from behind. Later as I was exiting the plane I heard what is Cougartown.com? I explained that it was a website for HHS alumni. The person replied that they thought it was a site for hot older women. It's that too, I replied.

Message: Hey George Key! Remember that tie that Drill Team gave you upon your retirement? MY MOTHER made it. I think it was a bow tie. My sister Mariza the Cougar brought home that project. It was made with LOVE and PRIDE. I have a question for all of you Cougar gals...how long did it take you to make those beehive hairdo's behave? The late Dusty Springfield was reported to have said she was responsible for the hole in the ozone layer (all that hairspray). I remember babysitters in the early '70s trying to get ME to sit for teasing hair (poofy pageboy look). I hated the wait, but loved the look. It seemed forever; it was 3rd grade. Still an Olympian, Kris (Ripley) Hayhurst '82

It was bittersweet leaving my job, and I don't think my life will feel different until Monday morning when I don't have to get up and go to work and know that I do not have to do it ever again. In two weeks I will be on my way to a new life, and newly built home in Coos Bay, Oregon. I will be living next door to my brother Robert DeWald, class of '66. No other neighbors, except my niece, no noise. Just life in a peaceful, beautiful forest.

The article talks about the big muscle cars of the past & the many songs written about them & what we will be driving in the future... The best line in the article...It's 2016. Imaging a Brian Wilson ever thinking to write. "And she'll have fun, fun, fun til her daddy takes her Prius away"... too funny! too sad!

Message: Dave?s passing is not only felt by his Hawthorne family, but by the many he befriended while living in Bandon by the Sea Oregon. Yesterday, I had the opportunity to reminisce and recall Dave?s gentle nature and somewhat subliminal humor with one of Bandon?s native sons. Dave traveled regularly to our annual Humbug campout and crab feed near Port Orford and it won?t be the same without him. The morning after such an event, with a double large stack piled in front of him, Dave brought the group to tears of laughter with a soft smile and the simple declaration, ?Ya Know, you just can?t get too many pancakes.? Rest in peace brother.
