Message: Very sorry to hear about Coach Semon's passing. I have fond memories of him trying to make me a smarter baseball pitcher. He would always be saying; "settle down MEAT". Also, I remember that he and his wife got hit by a car while walking and he could not coach full time our senior year. RIP

Message: Thanks for all the birthday wishes! I was really surprised at so many kind words. I was in Minnesota on the date celebrating with My son, Chris and Daughter, Caroline. They threw me a party with friends and family. We had a good time with memories and catching up. I am so thankful for all the people who have helped me along the way with love and kindness. It seemed like there was at least one person there from ever milestone in my life where he or she helped me through. I know I couldn't have gotten this far without friends and family. 60. I still can't believe it.
Enjoy your 60s Sharon, they aren't bad at all.

Message: It's been a couple of hours since I saw coach Semon. It occurred to me after fielding about 30-40 email and phone calls; I could field a pretty good football team and an even better baseball team. Coach just needs a pitcher and catcher; wait coach can talk Mykkanen and Goodman into joining up.

The hospice nurse did not want any visitors because Sid is heavily sedated and nonresponsive. They said to check back in a few days. Sounds like it's time for a lot of Cougar prayers for coach Semon!
Amen to that Clark, thanks for the update.

Message: Technically, I had a Cougar sighting, but King John will of course be the final authority on any questionable happenstance. My lovely & talented children tossed a "surprise" retirement gig at a local winery. My wife & I both retired this month, and were truly surprised. Among the revelers were: 67' Tim Hood, Lyle Davidson, Steve DeCuir, Teresa DeCuir (Rowden) - 66' Bill Young, Steve Stevenson, - 65' Don Blackburn, Bruce Davidson, Terry Mazzotta, Don Lassiter, Dani Griffiths (Lassiter), and John Anderson. There may of been others, but as the night progressed, the Cougars regressed. A swell time was had by all.
Hey Jim, Sounds like you are truly loved, man. Yes after conferring with our secret CSC (Cougar Sighting Committee) they have voted 31-30 to allow it. A close vote for sure but you now have the honored Cougar Sighting graphic hanging off your feedback (you now know how Clark feels). Happy retirement to you and your wife and now it's time to make fun of all the working stiffs in OR.

I saw it once after the reunion, but just looked for it again and can't find it. I thought maybe they would have added photos and/or given information about a possible memory booklet, video, photo album available for purchase. But zip! Nada! Big ought! Not a thing!
My fault Doris as I just haven't had the time to get the pictures off of Facebook and onto the website. I will though, just be the patientest you can

Message: Now about the Cougartown T-Shirts..... John is out of L and XL, so I bet sales are dead. Maybe we can get up enough interest to get him to place another order so Susan Nelson Adams (and others I assume) can get their shirts. Heck, with enough interest, maybe we could get free domestic shipping from the retailer! Anyway, who needs a Cougartown T-Shirt? John, I'll take an XL.
Who wants a Cougartown Tshirt? I'll order them if I get enough interest, say 30 shirts in 30 days. Let me hear from you right here with sizes. Thanks Kevin.
