Message: Cougar sightings!! Thanks guys! When you irritate me I don't get mad, I just get fired up to have more sightings in one night than any of you will have in a whole year!! Tonight in Manhattan Beach I met Paul Abdelmalak(HHS'11), Victor Salus (HHS'11), Elcar Gil(HHS'11), & Jon Apralicio (HHS'10).My first "quadruple" sighting! I had nothing related to Hawthorne on me. A black CIF baseball hat, a Zuma Jay surf shop shirt, and gym shorts. No banners, no bullhorn, no cheerleader outfit! just the gift of gab! Hey Mike Kratz, you should be in my corner! I was like the junior member of your party crew from the early 70s! You, the "Sham"(Gary Shambaugh), "The Mill" (Ray Millman AKA M1 in Cougartown lingo), Robert Reuger & Alan Edholm!

Message: You boys can have your fun regarding my sighting but you guys aren't producing any! The future of Cougartown depend on more alumnae getting involved1? you jealous little people! For those of you who follow football: Hawthorne lost to Lawndale on Friday 26-21 despite having a first half lead and getting four turnovers from Lawndale. looks like we'll get a few wins this season!
I think that is GREAT Clark.... 21 points in one game? They are improving. GO COUGS!!

Message: Cougar sighting! Met Roxanne Ibarra (HHS'09) tonight at 24 hour fitness. Pay attention Sloey, this is how it is done.. After coaching high school track for thirty years it is fairly easy to recognize someone who is or was an athlete. I politely asked her if she was an athlete in high school. She said" Yes I was.' I asked her what sport and she said "Soccer". I asked what school she played for. "Hawthorne High" I told her about Cougartown. Hey Kahuna where are those Cougartown cards we discussed recently that I can give to all my sightings? Chalk up another one for the Cougar Stalker!
Good one Clark, thanks man.

Message: Busy day today John. Sorry I didn't get in here sooner. But I do want to wish you a very happy birthday, if somewhat belated. I know you won't see this tonight; (you old guys go to bed kinda' early), but maybe when your caregiver wakes you up in the morning, she'll read it to you. But really, I have to parrot our good friend Mike Shay and say it's been a mighty interesting 50 years or so, hasn't it? It's been a kick having you as my friend. And thanks for all you do with this site. It as been true treasure to a lot of people. Here's to many, many more!
Thanks for the BD wishes there buddy. Fun times over the last few decades for sure, man. Let's keep'em going for a few more.
