Message: I was near Hawthorne today so I stopped at HHS in hopes of meeting the new principal. School starts on Wednesday so everyone on campus was very busy with preparations. I lucked out and caught Dr. Landesfeind in her office I was very impressed because she could have legitimately said she was too busy and brushed me off. I told her there was one issue that needed to be dealt with ASAP. I explained that there are no working water faucets on Halcap field and we certainly don't want to be on the evening new because some football player or soccer player had a heat stroke from lack of water. I was curious to see what her response would be. I had brought up this issue with Mark Newell a number of times but he did not care to deal with it. His idea of supporting the football team was walking down the sidelines at games and patting the players on the butt and saying "Go get em tiger." If George Key had done that to me during a game I would have told him, "Thanks for the pat on the ass George but I'd really prefer water during practice!" I thanked Dr. Landesfeind for her time and got up to go. Within one minute she had the head of campus maintenance in front of her and was trying to get the water situation fixed! I think we have a serious leader who will improve our beloved HHS!

Message: The class of '76 gathered together last night to celebrate our 40th at Cowboy Country in Long Beach. The country western motif made for an interesting evening with cowboy attire and line dancing lessons. I think it is safe to say it was a good time had by all, seeing old friends, renewing friendships and even making some new friends! I swear I do not know what voodoo juice the women of 76 are drinking but I swear they age like fine wine, getting better every ten years! I would gladly put a group of 76ers up against any other class in a beauty contest. The class of 73 might give us a run for our money( I was always partial to Marianne Dowell). Some of us discussed future reunions and we conceded that line dancing lessons will give way to wheel chair races and "cane fencing" Of all the organizations I have been affiliated with, I am most proud to be part of the HHS class of '76!
Dang, I knew there was something I had to do this week. Man, I am so sorry to have missed this one. Was looking forward to seeing John and V6 and T2 and of course, Sharon and Mike and Dave K. Glad you had a fun night Clark and all the rest, I'm sure. Sorry but a Thursday night reunion just did not compute.

He started talking with a woman there and it turned out she had gone to HHS her freshman and senior year. Her name was Jeana Carpenter. I'm not sure what year she graduated, but she said she went there when the Beach Boys did, which narrows it down somewhat. Does anyone remember her? I'll see some of you in a couple of weeks.
Thanks Glenn, I do not remember her but sure someone does.

Message: COUGAR SIGHTING: I was in the South Bay Galleria mall today and stopped in the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and an associate clerk (Samantha) offered assistance. Sam and I struck up a conversation and before long she let me know she went to Hawthorne High and is a proud graduate from the class of 2015! A Newby. I told Sam about Cougartown, the Cruise-In's and other things related. She is attending good old El Camino College now continuing her education there. I was sort of surprised to hear that when Nordstrom closed, Rocky Mountain's business dropped way off! So, any Coug's with a sweet tooth, stop in; and that's my tip of the day.
Thanks Jim for spreading the word man.

Message: JB, my people were down in Lawndale on W 160th St in 1950, but I see the names of many subsequent neighbors on what must have been a brand-new postwar W 134th St.
Thanks John, I notice a build up in names at certain addresses; E. 119th St was one place and it must have been St Joseph's Nuns. Also E 126th St where the Hawthorne Hotel was located. Also I noticed lots of families at that time were all living at the same address or at least buying houses close together on the same block. The Skaff family were mostly living on E 132nd St and the Scheligas were E 130th to 134th St.
