Message: Help!!!! I just visited that site. With those colors I started having Flash Backs (must have had something to do with that “Red Ousley” or “Orange Sunshine”. There I was Flashing Back on those Freak Out tents at Woodstock , Those Hells Angels at Altamont & Gawd forbid the cops beating down my door in Virginia Beach. An All that for only $95.00. I think it’s a rotten ploy by that Lawyer Dude “Sniffles “ & Bobby Whats his name. But Da King Hoody & Paco involved? (they musta put something in their drinks) Why I think we outta turn em into the Internet Police. But Then again Those are some pretty Far Out Colors and I still have a few Traces from them. Nope those days are gone and I’m gonna stick with my “Real Buds” at Cougartown. (Anybody got any papers?)

Chris Prewitt we have an opening for a page counter, hurry before we reach 1000, that's the end of Robin, Paco and my math skills. And we had too many hits on the cheerleader page so we have downloaded that to CD-Rom, $29.95 and worth every penny! Be a Real Coug! Glad I am a REAL COUG!

Message: WOW, John! 3,877 alumni signed up on CT. Just think.... if each person sent in their measly ten bucks for membership, we'd have enough $$$$ to begin production/distribution of the CT newsletter for all of our Cougs who don't have computers. Of course, then we add in the extra money that Dan Johnson will be sending you for advertising :), and there you go.... Cougartown Newsletters for all!
It's not much of a price to pay to rekindle old friendships and make new memories. Send in your $10.00 membership checks today! Mail them to....John Baker, PO Box 1406, Lomita, CA 90717. Make sure if you're not a member already, to go to the student info page or the faculty info page and fill that out first.

Thanks Susan....

Message: Happy May Day Cougartown (the only Cougartown) and Happy Birthday to my big brother Timmy (AKA “Big Hoody). This day brings back fond memories of flooding the Ramona playground with hundreds of children in colorful outfits parading around the may poles. Truly the biggest school event of the year and surely the roots of the woodstock generation. Does this ritual still exist or has it been banned from schools due to some alleged pagan influence. I suppose the kids now days just light a couple of cars in the parking lot on fire and call it good. Now on “a bit” more serious note, John, don’t let this half-baked (pun intended) attempt at a hostile takeover get you down. I punched in and my puter emitted a gaseous odor that cleared two floors of our building. And as you can see, the parties involved are suck ups that never understood that getting beat up on a regular basis by the in crowd, didn’t make them part of the in crowd. They're still wannabe’s and you still THE MAN!!!
Thanks Chris, I just hope and pray there's not a mass exodus from Cougartown to Realcourgartown, anytime soon. Happy May day to you, and all Coug feedbackers. What is May Day anyway? ...must be one of those made up kwaanza holidays or somethin'...

Yes, if you go to any restaurant in Hawthorne, order two meals, tell them you're a realcougartown member, they'll give you the first meal at the regular price, and the second meal for the price of the first IF it's an identical meal.

Microsoft wants to do a $3,000,000 advertising gig on the site and Al and Brian want to help too because they are real Cougars! Paco, Robin and I haven't slept for three days between the site and the negotiations. Real Courgartown, what a country! John we noticed you have no copyright to the term Courgartown, but we do, so perhaps we should talk? And again you have a "cute little" site here!
Thanks and my compliments to you and your color scheme over at It looks like you had the same people that did Speed Racer design it. Very smart indeed. No wonder Bill Gates is envious.

Message: OK, John. It's been a year since you updated the Cougar total on the Alumni page. I KNOW we've got a whole bunch more than 2,702 of us on board now. I'd guess closer to double that amount. Hey! Here's a good contest for a Cougartown freebie. Take down the list for a few days, and guess the total members. That ought to be worth a T-shirt or sumptin. Have a good Cougartown Day!
I wouldn't have the time to set that one up right now, so I'll just tell you it's 3877 on the list right now. That may be a few off, but not many. That's another 44% increase over the past year, so the "word of mouth" is still working well. Thanks Cougs for all your help and suggestions. We'll find them all before it's over.
