Message: Steve Lee Mears Class of 65' passed away in Seattle. Does anyone remember Steve? He grew up in Hawthorne, California and spent many happy hours in Pomona at his great-grandmother's poultry farm or at his great- aunt's dairy farm. Steve graduated from Hawthorne High in 1965, lettering several years in football, and immediately enlisted in the family trade, "The Marine Corps." At that time California was picked to put the best they could find into what was to become "The Bob Hope Challenge Platoon" and Steve was one of those selected.
Don't remember Steve but may have been the brother of good buddy Roy HHS62. Leo, are you sure it wasn't 1966 he graduated?

Message: The '55 El Molino has appeared on It's a remarkable, western-oriented yearbook, perhaps reflecting the madness for "oaters' in the 'Fifties. Jan Murray's best joke: "American tv in the '50s was a time when cowboys rode from town to town in the Old West, beating up Victor Jory."
1955 was the time of Davy Crockett, B Westerns, and Gabby Hayes. It fit right in.

Message: Wow, great pic of the old carousel at the mall. Seeing that reminded me of the Live Steamer trains that run once a month at Wilson Park. I think they are still running them. It used to be the 3rd Sunday of the month. I brought my grand kids there nearly every month for years; until I ran out of grand kids young enough to enjoy it. What a neat way to spend time with your little ones. The carousel looks like another great opportunity!
Wondering where the Old Towne Carousel ended up?

Message: Everyone has a different experience in the Army. My dad got drafted in '44 at age 36 and with one son and another on the way. My mom was sure it would be the end of our family. So some of you guys out there knew my dad was a pretty good pool player. Well he also understood dice and cards. About a month after he went in, my mom started getting $800-$1000 per week in the mail. Turns out the Army was the best job my dad ever had.
