Class: 1966
City & State: Hawthorne
Message: Besides the obvious and most important motivation to get out the vote, there is also always the potential for a Cougar Sighting. While voting in Hawthorne's local election yesterday, I ran into Bill Leeman (HHS '64). I hadn't seen Bill since High School, and we had a great visit bringing each other up to date. For those who know/knew the Leemans, you'll be interested to know that he and his family are doing well.
Hey Jim, Thanks for the sighting and Bill, let us hear from you.

Message: I am not a HHS graduaate, but grew up in Hawthorne. This past weekend I drove to Imperial and Crenshaw near Hawthorne. I noticed the huge shopping center that had Sad Sack, Imperial Theatre, Mel's, all gone. I remember Taste of Sweden Smorgasbord next to the theatre years ago I used to dine there many times. How sad that these life-long landmarks are now gone.
I agree Lynn, thanks for the comment...

I want to change my George guy to the second row too...still don't remember his last name. So now we can talk about college football? Not that I really want to now but...? You left at halftime? And you're Mr. Cougartown? Did you have to get trained on the nets or something? Left at halftime?
Yeah, let's talk about Nebraska and maybe setting up a game with HHS at HALCAP. I think we can beat the Huskers

Message: What is "pulling the nets"?
The nets are in the endzone and have to be pulled up to catch the football on extra points and field goals. I'd like to thank Lee Leonard HHS66 for inviting me to help out. Lee's been doing the net job for about 6 years now.

Message: Pulling the nets or not, I thought we couldn't talk college football? Hawthorne, JB, Hawthorne. :-)
Hey Leslie, You're right. I am sorry about that. I did go to the Hawthorne game on Friday and left at halftime (28-0 then). Final - Culver City 50-13. The Cougars do have a better team than the one showing up every week. Some coaching would help. See you next Saturday at the Alumni Association meeting at HHS in Nyman Hall at 10 am. You are all invited to attend.
