Message: Watching SpaceX's Dragon on TV was great. Not only is SpaceX headquartered in Hawthorne, but some of the equipment is made and tested right down the road from me in McGregor, TX. We often hear the rockets being tested - they usually announce when there is testing planned after one time they didn't and there were a lot of the local folks calling emergency lines. I believe that "Scotty" from Star Trek's ashes were taken into space on the rocket that powered the Dragon Capsule.

Message: Dear whoever posted the message about the tree near HHS library. That memorial was set there after my love expired in Oct of 1983. He was 16 years old, and a really nice guy. How do I know? Because I was his lover off and on since 7th grade. During that time I think he had a step-father who had given birth to a baby two and a half years before he laid a shotgun to his chest. I think I remember his Folks had left with the baby for vacation getaway. LP

Message: Hey Bob Clobucker..Back in the day a group of us that worked at the A&W 'joined' the Street Racers and ordered our colors from Big Willie because we wanted to be cool. What posers we were! I think we rode out to Van Nuys Blvd in Bob Whaley's station wagon and stood in line to pick up our patches from Willie's wife. It didn't matter if you owned a hot car or not. Anyone could join if you had the twenty bucks. The patches had our nick names on them and also specified that we were from the 'Hawthorne Chapter'. Mrs. Whaley sewed the colors on our jackets for all of us, and we wore them proudly. Luckily we didn't get our asses kicked. The guy with the wheelie-popping Chevy step van was Randy Granath, class of '70. Fun memories!

Message: Got the news that Big Wille Robinson, the prez of the LA County Street Racers passed on at age 69. Ran my 72 Duster 340 at his Terminal Island track back in the late 70s. He was an interesting character to say the least. I remember a few guys at HHS that were members in the early 70s. Used to wear those crazy and cool jackets to school! Probably against the dress code these days. There was one guy the drove a hopped up step van that could pop wheelies. I think he was one of em. So raise your glass and toast to the memory of Big Wille. Long live the New Breed of Brotherhood! Best Wishes to all, BC 73.

Message: For all the friends of Marsha Russell, HHS64... Her mother, Lorene Russell passed away this afternoon after a long illness, she was 91. The Russell family, originally from Arkansas, were long time residents of Hawthorne dating back to the 1940s. Lorene was one of the sweetest, kindest people I've ever known and I will miss her big ol' smile and southern drawl. Funeral arrangements are pending and will be posted. Marsha, understandably, has asked that her friends please hold off calling her for a few days. I will miss you lots Lorene and will take good care of Lilly.
