Message: Didn't Ms. Atkins live near Del Aire Park, or did she grow up there? Mrs. Stewart (Dana Girl's PE teacher) lived on 119th & Judah. I heard a rumor that Mr. Hammer (Wiseburn School District) is living in Del Aire. Mrs. Lafferty is in Holly Glen. Mrs. Slayback (sp?), Mrs. Bell and Mr. Upton are in El Segundo. They are all Wiseburn people. I seem to remember a rumor that some students followed a favorite teacher home to Orange County long ago. But it wasn't me, so I'll let someone else tell the story right!

Message: Hello Tom Chadwick HHS '72...Is your Dad Coach Chadwick the same Jim Chadwick who was our Class Counselor for Leuzinger's Class of 1981? Per JD Haas of LHS '57, The BBQ Committee is planning The 2008 BBQ in Canyonville, OR on September 20, 2008. The theme will be Hawaiian. They'll have more information as soon as they have secured the park reservation. I'll have that info posted on our website news in the very near future. I attended this year's BBQ last June. I was the baby of the group there, and was treated very well. The photos that I took are posted here. Please say hello to your Dad and tell him that All Olympians wish him the very best!

Message: John...That was a very nice message from Tom Chadwick. I wasn't at the Class of 57' Reunion, but "The Coach", Mr. Chadwick had a BIG impact on all of us who went to LHS back in the day. He was tough but just one of the best people you'd ever want to meet. I will be at the Oregon BBQ next Sept. along with some of the people from the "Other Classes" under his tutelage and really hope that Coach Chadwick can make it. We'd all love to see him again! Thanks John and thanks to you too, Tom.....David

Message: John I hope you don't mind, but, I know that Leuzinger alumni check into C/T frequently, so I'd like to thank their class of '57 for the great thrill they gave my dad Saturday before last at their 50th reunion. He didn't realize that after all these years, how much of an impact he had on your lives until that night. Thanks so much for honoring him the way you did. JD Haas, let me know when the next BBQ is, and I'll try to get him up to Oregon to party with you guys.

Message: Very sorry to hear about Doug Sutherland. I remember his Chrysler powered deuce coupe and when I had my '57' blown Vette we raced over on Mariposa in El Segundo when it was just a straight street with no business or cross streets. Ya, I know we weren't supposed to do that so shame shame shame on me. ~ ~ ~ Mr Bennett the shop teacher used to live on York in Hawthorne. Lots of kids used to bring their lunch in a brown bag and on the last day of school when Bennett wasn't looking Joe Mazotta swapped his bag with Mr Bennett's. Just before the end of clsss Joe took a mallet and pounded his lunch bag till there was food all over the bench and no one laughed harder than the teacher. When class was over Joe walked over to Bennetts desk picked up his lunch and walked out after he got his report card of course. I talked to Denola Bryce at the last cruise and she's still in touch with Joe and says he hasn't changed a bit and is still crazy.

Message: Hi John....if I remember correctly I missed Senior Picture Day because my mother had rheumatism arthritis all of her adult life and she had fallen and broken both hips and senior pics were that last thing on my mind as I had my two younger brothers to take care of since she was hospitalized in Downey where they specialized with patients who had advanced arthritis as she did.....I remember I was supposed to go for make up day to get them done but I don't remember that I ever did. That August we took her back home to Boston, Mass where they had a hospital by the name of Peter Brent Bingham where she was in rehabilitation for 2 months and then I came back to California at the end of November 1969 when I met my future husband( the late MArk Cordilla) before he joined the Marines and he went to Vietnam for one year. Sorry does not having a senior pic matter? Thanks......

Message: Hi John....thanks for the information re: Jim Crawford's e-mail on the alumni list, I tried it but I believe I got an error message so I wasn't sure if either one of his e-mail addresses listed were still current. Do you know if he still lives in California? A friend of ours Penny and another fellow HPD officer Beau said they thought he may have moved out of state but they weren't sure. Do you ever have any contact with him. If you do would you mind letting him know I would love to just say hello and feel free to give him my contact info....that's so much John and this Cougle site is fabulous.......

Message: Hi John....I'm so embarrassed, you can certainly tell this is my first time doing this. It's a pleasure meeting you. I believe you mentioned you were the class of 62...but by any chance did you know a guy by the name of Jim Crawford, he graduated in 1960 so maybe you don't. He was a Hawthorne Police officer in the 70's and early 80's and I've been trying to get in contact with him and if anyone knows him I'd love to be able to say hello to him. This is an absolutely great way to see how all of your classmates from so long ago are. I can't believe the changes in Hawthorne Blvd, no more A&W drive thru, or Taco Tio or the islands where everyone would go to meet to see where any parties were and before you knew it the party was there in the islands on Hawthorne Blvd. At least Fosters Freeze is still there. The police were great, they never hassled us cruising or when we all gathered just to hang with our friends...sometimes they would even give us a heads up that Detective Rinkey, who was pretty by the book was in the area and to keep the music down...but it was always great, clean fun!!!! Those will always be the good ole days, I knew they were then but as I get older I realize how great those days and growing up in Hawthorne really were. We were really lucky to have those experiences, thanks for responding to me... Take care, Madeline
