Hey Bruce, is that, "what was the Cougar sighting on" or "what was the Cougar sitting on"? I think the Cougar sighting was over the telephone.

Message: Thanks Marilyn Ross for your reply regarding the Lennox theater. Actually, I'm surprised that you are communicating with me at all since I was one of the guys that drank all that A&W Rootbeer and then going to the bridge over La Cienega Blvd. to get rid of it. Back then you said "I am still in shock about the A&W story. Yuuuck! It may take a while to get past that one." Remember that? I'm glad you got "past that one". That was back on October 22, 2002, page 517. I totally agree with your comment back then and so glad you are now past it. Regards Jim

Message: A memorial golf tournament has been finalized for Roger Rouse, who attended Hawthorne from 1967 thru 1971. Roger died last November after he and his son were caught in a terrible storm on Mount Bachelor in Oregon while snowmobiling. The Deschutes County Sheriff?s Search and Rescue (SAR) were able to save his son Brian.
The memorial golf tournament is being held at the golf course where he worked with the proceeds going to search and rescue. Donations also excepted. Cathy and Melanie (sisters to Roger) want Roger?s friends to know about this annual event which will be held to celebrate their brother?s life. You can visit this site for more information. What a great place this CT is to share Haytown info.. thanks JB
Thanks for the information, Bill. I'm sure there are lots of Cougs who knew Roger and who would love to donate to this worthy cause.

Hey Jake, Saw and talked to Richie at Rich Sloan's BBQ a month or so ago. Wouldn't have known he had surgery if not for you. Looked like he just stepped out of an El Molino.

Message: Hey Alan Hauge, I think CTown would really like to hear about the time you and Raymond Wheeler did that thing around the streets of Lennox High School. Since I wasn't in on this one, you are the right one to tell the story. In fact, any Raymond story would be fun to hear.
John, speaking of Lennox, I remember going to the Lennox theater when I was around 9 or 10. You had to go upstairs for the restrooms. Anyone else remember the Lennox? Not much has been said about this old landmark.
I know they turned it into a mattress store.

Message: Hi John, Thanks again for this great place where we "gather together"! I am just curious ... is there a place on Cougartown, where you keep track or have a total headcount of how many cougars you have listed on your alumni pages? I know it's an impressive number and would say a lot for what you have accomplished. It's totally amazing and such a good thing!
Hi Penny, Well thanks very much and there are now 6,304 on the Alumni List. I remember when it hit 350. The last 35 on the NEW Alumni list have been added in the last 78 days, so right now we're adding about 3 a week to the list. Thanks for asking.

Message: Good to be a part of the HHS c/o 1987 reunion committee! As we approach the day of events on August 25th, I am looking forward to seeing my fellow classmates and getting to know those that I didn't know so well in school. I'm anxious to hear about your lives, your kids, your careers, etc. I believe that most people don't believe in reunions - that they are not worth their time/effort. My philosophy is, you'll never know the truth until you try it! Also, it's never too late to network. I will be the "emcee" for the evenings events so I will be very hard to miss (much less being 6'-3", dark, bald, with a goatee)! Anyway, I hope that you receive this message in good health and good wealth. I'll see ya when I'm lookin atcha!
Sounds like the class of 87 has their stuff together, allright. Thanks Andre and have a great reunion.

If there is any Garth Brooks fans out there he has been my client at our studio again recently doing a new music video to launch a new song. Spoke with my wife for quite some time. Last time he was there he sat my grandkids on his Harley and took them on the set and gave them a front row seat for hours during his production. See you on cruise night. Alan
Hey Alan, see you and the 33 there, and bring Garth too.

Message: I heard the Paul Harvey News this morning on KABC at 10:45a.m. and he mentioned that Boeing has built a "Flying Wing" and it is ready to fly out at Edwards Air Force Base. It's supposed to carry more 'stuff' and perform better than most current aircraft. It is to be flown by a remote system from the ground! He closed by saying some may question the new craft because it's really shaped like, ah, a flying saucer! Now, 'eye' want to see that!
The Boeing X48B is the next step in passenger aircraft.

I asked him to contact you. Who knows when or if he ever will...I hope you don't mind. And I really hope they do contact you. I think it would be great.

Message: Clark: Patricks Roadhouse is on PCH at Entrada Ave., just before Chautauqua, in beautiful SANTA MONICA. I used to have breakfast there, after riding my bike up the coast. Jessie; The Huell Howser thing is a great idea. I think his show is very informative, about California and its beginning and early years. Just wonder if he would wear the same old shirt.
Keith Jones - always nice to hear from you! LOL..
