Message: I was ASB President the first semester of 91-92 school year. I had a great experience while at Hawthorne and it has since led me to do even bigger and greater deeds. I am now Asst. Track and Field Coach at CS Fullerton and living in Orange County while preparing to start Graduate School. I want to thank Kye Courtney and Mr. Karrella for everything. They motivated me to do great things with my life and I'm just getting started.
Hi Chris, Thanks for checking in. It's always nice to hear the positive things that Cougar alums are doing out there in the real world. Please stay tuned and do not hesitate to add your 2 cents to our humble forum whenever you feel the need.

Message: Carol McClintick: I know this problem of yours is a very private matter so tried to contact you on your E mail but since it did not go through must resort to putting it here on feedback in front of God, King John and all loyal Cougs. It is a shame to expose your sin so publicly but such a serious sin must be faced and solved.
After many sleepless nights wrestling with the facts it became obvious that the case be turned over to the school board attorney. However you should not worry because with all the kind accolades on this web about how kind and considerate attorneys are these days you should be in good hands. Of course a problem of this magnitude will no doubt go all the way to supreme court but again I counsel you to not worry as there cannot possibly be anyone to testify against you. Mr. Kirkpatrick is no longer with us and Mr. Goodfellow is too seriously ill to attend.
Therefore your real problem is facing your 24 year old sin against the 10th Commandment and trying to find peace. My gut feeling is these two fantastic teachers would be pleased and proud that you care enough to keep their book.
Please check with King John regarding penance and purification of your soul but my suggestion would be that after 4 beers at Stick and Stein after homecoming you should be sentenced to read two poems without error. Hope I have given you help and a display of outstanding leadership in this matter.----JORGE
George, her penance is, she has to say "toy boat toy boat" 20 times in 10 seconds without goofing it up, or she buys everyone in attendance a giant pitcher of Margaritas. Otherwise Robin shoots the book off her head with a bow and arrow while aiming backwards through a rear view mirror. OK Carol, what'll it be??

Message: For all of the surf music nuts out there, Rhino Records has produced a great chronical of the history of this style of music. There's a four CD set called "Cowabunga"!, kind of corny, but it's a truly fantastic collection of surf music. There are 82 pieces of music in it. They're not all gems but most are and the others are interesting. The history of this music form emcompasses our small part of the planet. I could name bands and songs that long have been forgotten. Rhino Records has to be applauded for this production. Not only do you get a great piece of musical history but they include a 64 page booklet that documents a large part of the history regarding surf music's beginnings. I recommend this package for anyone who really loves this stuff. I found it at Barnes and Noble. One note, they have the KFWB Jingle done by the Beach Boys in there. We were lucky enough to see the Beach Boys here in Bakersfield, but enjoyed hearing the Venture's about 2 years ago. They were fantastic. We also got to hear the Revels. They did Churchkey. If anyone out there questions Churchkey, they're really, really young. I'm sure that most of us older Coug's knows what a churchkey is.
One question about Oct.15 Homecoming Game. When I was going to HHS Home football Games were a El Camino. What I want to know is what is the parking situation at Halcap Field?

Message: MR. R LORD. You are partially right. When we had the ball at the "two", with less than a minute to go in the half, we were to run our "goal line offense". After getting stuffed on the first two plays I told Steve Andersen to run a "fly right". As the end and linebacker were pinched straight up over me. I said I could take the end and Bobby Hunter could cut the linebacker. But Steve stuck with the plays. History. But on that 4th down call, in the 4th quarter, I suggested the same thing. It was "a wingback right, fly right". I took out the end and Bobby got the LB. and as the story goes here we are. John, as far as why did I stop at the two, well this jerk had ahold of my ankle. I really was trying to take my foot out of my shoe, but saw these other monsters coming at me, so I pussed out and took a dive. Ah the memories. Love it! But Roy, do you remember the language on the bus? Man I really think if The Coach had had a heart condition we could have triggered it. But I also feel that we were ready to get off the bus and kick some more butts with the insults being throw at us. Hey, its fun. Later, EL/ID. MAY THE COUGAR BE WITH YOU. By the way Roy, Jude says hello again. She always thought you were a very nice person. I did too, except in the locker room after a game.
EL, May the Mighty Cougar never "puss out" on you and the ID Queen. Be a Coug boy........

Loretta, just last week I had the same e-mail problem. Turned out to be just to much whiteout on the screen. Nice talk JB "DEFRAG!" How do you expect to keep the clean posture here at CT. So the truth is out. Jim Lambert and Beverly Glaubitz. I, with all the others at CT applaud you both, and wish you the very best that life has to offer. Bruce Hoover, Richard Thomas, and Dennis Morris.... Great picture. But how did all those old guys get into the act with the faces I remember. And why is it we don't see those folks here at the feedback dome? Yo! El Rojo. First he is the KING, then the JESTER. "Why did you stop at the 2 yard line?"

As to riding topless on the back of the Harley all the way to Texas and back - wouldn't do that no matter who begged and how hard! Robin - ditto Jim's question - have an itinerary yet? There was another donut shop - maybe East on Crenshaw? If my brother Tom reads this, maybe he can answer - then again, maybe not, you know how it is when "Older Than Dirt" tries to use his brain. Anyway, the donut shop was on a corner, and we loved to get the donut holes. It was a special treat to go to this donut shop. Seems like it may have been 2-3 miles East of Prairie???? Anyone know?

Message: El Rojo: It is interesting how we each seem to remember different parts of what happened so when we talk we are able to put the whole picture together. I didn't remember our bus being hit either. I have a newspaper article written about the Samohi game and my favorite part was where the sports writer said that many of the players from Santa Monica had not been knocked off their feet once the whole season and that night they were picking themselves up off the turf three or four times in the one game. My favorite part of the game was when the score was 14-12 and we had the ball on our own 45 yard line, with about 2 minutes to go in the game and 4th down and about 6 yards to go. Coach Chauncey was on the sideline signaling to Andersen to punt. He called us into the huddle and laid it on the line, the whole season was going to be determined on this one play, if we allowed them to get their hands on the ball again they might score. Fred Ragatz (not sure of the spelling) So lay off RJ! ran the ball off tackle (right),it was jammed up so he veered outside and gained 20 yards for a first down. The rest was history and we ran out the clock. I even think some guy with the initials R.J. threw a key block. I can remember going to Santa Monica-Hawthorne basketball games that year wearing our League Championship Jackets. Talk to you later! Thank God I am a Coug! R. Lord
We hear how the offense did this or that, but the defense was the real story, only giving up about 8 points a game that season. That'll make the offense look pretty darned good huh guys. I don't know how many points Samohi scored that season, but they were a scoring machine. Holding them to 12 points was a tribute in itself to the HHS defense. The offense in the first half of the season scored 114 points and in the second half, scored 63. The defense gave up 33 points in the first half of the season, and 33 points in the second half of the same season.

Message: Royal, you may be R Lord, but you're still BABY JESUS to me. As far as the Samo game went, here's my perspective. Do you remember when we got to the field? Their guys were standing around in suits as we ran onto the field for warm ups,(we were already in uni's) taunting us about how they were going to kick our ass. I think that was my motivation for that game. As far as things being thrown at the bus'es, they may have thrown a few things like cups of soda and such, but I don't remember any hard objects of any sort. I do remember the Coach and assistants getting quite P.O.'ed at our language about how we terminated the great "samo" grade....hi school"! But if you recall we could have won by several more points had we executed a little better. Case in point, Ron Petch, missed a 24 or 26 yd. field goal, I believe it hit the uprights.Then I caught a pass and went down to the 2 yd line just before half for a first and goal and we didn't score. And third, samo's 2nd TD should not have counted as the game films clearly showed their Left End offside by about a full yard before the snap. But I think the most satisfaction I got from that game, 1st beating their butts "Physically", after the "taunting" and "then", going to P.O.P.,Santa Monica, on the pier, with our BAY LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP jackets on. Now that was satisfaction! More later Roy. Good to have someone else's perspective other than mine. EL/ID. MAY THE COUGAR BE WITH YOU! P.S. Roy, Jude says a big "hello" to you!
EL, So what I want to know is......why did you stop at the 2 yard line?
