> Well this is a very quiet place lately. Hope everyone is safe from the fires. We had to evacuate my hubby's mother 95 y/o and sister, and our daughter and her family. They were very close to the El Dorado Fire. At our house in Calimesa we had 7 people, 7 cats, and two dogs here. It was interesting, everyone left the next morning and the fire has moved away from their area. We were lucky so far. Stay safe everyone

> Thank you Steve and Happy Birthday to you also. If you turned 27, that must mean I turned 27. Wish I felt 27 LOL.
- Sharon | 7/30/2020 7:38:16 PM

> Happy birthday Sharon! Mine was two days ago. I turned 27. I wish you a wonderful day!
- Steve Herron | 7/30/2020 11:08:22 AM

> Today is my birthday. Birthday wishes please.
- Sharon | 7/30/2020 11:00:45 AM

> Thank you Steve for all the work you do to keep this site up and running.
- Nancy Shane Price | 7/30/2020 6:58:51 AM

> Super! I thought it was a goner for awhile there. Glad it is back. Just wish there would be more chatting going on. With all this crazy virus doodoo, it is nice to have technology to communicate. Hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy. These are awful times right now. Sharon
- Sharon Mitchell Carbaugh | 7/28/2020 6:36:36 PM

> We've been off line, off and on, for the last month and I am truly sorry for that. First the server host moved the website from an old server to a new server. That screwed up all the paths and permissions to the databases used for the message board and the Gone, But Not Forgotten pages. It took me some time to repair that damage. Then, just out to the blue, Fohi71.Com was not recognized by the hosting server. There's no explanation for this, just someone or something screwed up. Anyway, were back and I hope we can all stay in touch.
- Steve Herron | 7/26/2020 4:48:00 PM

> So sorry to hear about Dan, I remember him, very nice guy.
- Sharon | 6/9/2020 3:56:08 PM

> Dan O`Neal, Class of 1971, passed away yesterday, June 8, 2020.




- Steve Herron | 6/9/2020 9:57:18 AM

> Hi James, The reunion committee has met only once and so far there is no consensus as to where the reunion will be held. But, more than likely the date will be set sometime in the Fall of 2021.
- Fohi71.Com | 5/26/2020 4:51:36 PM

> Hey; anyone, Can anyone tell me when and where the 50th reunion going to be because I will have to travel to it, Thanks.
- James Blake | 5/26/2020 2:11:38 PM

> LOL,,,Steve,,no problem. I had forgotten about it actually. Think everyone is moving in slow mode right now. I have been working on an email to Brenda Wise-Dunak for 2 weeks now,,,and just sent it off!
- Sue Miller | 5/17/2020 7:07:28 PM

> Brenda's last name the same Borton as far as I know.
- James Blake | 5/14/2020 5:21:14 PM

> Thanks for the names Steve. I think everyone is looking good and hope everyone stays well and hope we all survive this mess physically and mentally. Everyone stay safe. Sharon
- Sharon Mitchell Carbaugh | 5/6/2020 9:46:44 AM

> Hi Sue, Sorry I'm so slow with the committee members' names. The names are under the photo now.
- Steve Herron | 5/5/2020 2:01:46 PM

> Can someone identify all persons in the reunion committee? Steve? Anyone? Recognize maybe 50%. Hope everyone is good and staying in and making the best of a crazy situation. Stay safe everyone and wear your masks when necessary to go out.
- Sue Miller | 4/10/2020 1:29:20 AM

> Thanks James. Do you know what her last name is?? Actually, my ex-sister-in-law Patty Kesterson (Lawing) is the one looking for her. Has been for years. Appreciate any help!
- Ginny Dianasic-Buse | 3/28/2020 1:28:41 PM

> Ginny; Benda lives on Arrow Blvd with her son. I do not know the address number but it is on Arrow Blvd. She works at a Taco Bell or a Subway at a truck stop somewhere on the interstate. Wish i could help you more on this but if I do here from here I will pass the message on that you are looking for her, O.K. Love James.
- James Blake | 3/26/2020 8:37:39 PM

> Does anyone know how to reach Brenda DeCarli? Please let me know.
- Ginny Dianasic-Buse | 3/20/2020 1:52:01 PM

> Wow, committee people you guys are looking really good.
- Sharon Carbaugh | 3/13/2020 2:16:33 PM

> Finally some activity on this site. Wow can't believe it will be 50 years since Fohi 71. That makes us old. Stay well and safe. Sharon
- Sharon Mitchell Carbaugh | 3/6/2020 2:59:47 PM

> For anyone interested in being on the reunion committee, the first meeting will be next Sunday, March 8th 1:00pm, at my house in Yucaipa. Give me a call for directions. 951-533-1963. Hope to see you there!
- Pam Hardy Sosa | 3/1/2020 12:40:13 PM

> Hi everyone. Yeah Steve, I would really LOVE to be on the Reunion Committee again, but I don't have a car nor get around as I used to. Anything new or exciting going on? I do get over to Fontana now and then, and when I do I get homesick!! Hope everyone is doing well. Spring is definitely here in the I. E., since about January still. We do still get cold nights but that's O.K. Already we are getting that glorious smell of citrus in bloom. Well, bye for now.
- Miriam A. | 2/26/2020 3:07:21 PM

> There is a reunion planning meeting scheduled for March 8, 2020 at 1:00pm at the home Pam Hardy Sosa. Those wishing to help out on the planning of our 50th year reunion are welcome to attend. For more details, contact us on the "Contact Us/Comments" page or email Steve Herron at fohi1971@gmail.com.
- Steve Herron | 2/21/2020 12:26:16 PM

> Oh hey HI!, glad to see there is some action on here. I like winter for sleeping, but I can't get outside as much. So yeah am looking forward to spring. I had a monarch butterfly garden last year and it was fun. I have more milkweed now, so hoping for more butterflies in the spring and summer.
- Sharon Mitchell Carbaugh | 1/8/2020 6:38:46 PM

> Oh, I'm way ready for Spring. That last snow we had here was pretty, but cold.
- Steve Herron | 1/6/2020 11:49:34 AM

> I don't know about the Groundhog yet, but the birds here seem to think it's Spring already. Except for the few cold-snaps we've had, it really is like Spring. The hummingbirds went away during the wind, but they're back eating on my patio. Precious gems they are.
- Miriam Appelbaum | 1/4/2020 12:58:15 PM

> Hi Folks; Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving-I did!! Nothing really knew currently, just wanted to day Hello. Hope all is well, and everyone has a great new year. Steve; is there any Info about the Reunion for next year yet? Just curious.....Bye for now. Happy 2020 all.
- Miriam A. | 1/4/2020 12:44:25 PM

> Hi everyone, Have a great and safe Thanksgiving. Hope all is well.
- Sharon | 11/26/2019 7:29:57 PM

> THANKS Steve. It was good. Hope everyone is well. Not much to report right now. Nobody is home on this site anymore. Are people losing interest? Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving. Bye for now.
- Miriam A. | 11/26/2019 12:32:03 PM

> Happy Birthday Miriam!
- Steve Herron | 10/30/2019 7:09:49 PM

> Hi everyone; what's new? doing ok., but our complex is going downhill. I don't know why we can't seem to keep competent managers here any more. We had a murder not too many months ago. Then our manager was attacked. We got a new manager a few weeks ago who walked out. That doesn't say much for the complex's reputation. All I know is that 8 years ago when I moved there, it was very nice and so on. Many people feel it's time to move on. I may do so myself. anyway; Happy Halloween ya'll. The winds are strong and cold in the I.E.. Hi to Mike T., Ginny, Steve, James, Ray, Curt, etc. Be well, be cool.
- Miriam A. | 10/30/2019 2:37:12 PM

> We just returned from a vacation in Colorado. A beautiful state for sure. Met with a 1st cousin I have not seen him since I was 13, that was nice. Happy Fall to All. Sharon
- Sharon Mitchell Carbaugh | 9/30/2019 11:21:30 AM

> I'm VERY sorry to hear about Dale Radford's passing. He was a great man who loved his family, and always did the best he could for them. If anyone has Eric's, Wendy's, or Lisa's email address, please express my condolences to them.
- Ray Coccia | 9/20/2019 8:05:57 PM

> Lisa Radford's dad just passed away.
- Sue Irving-Krampe | 9/20/2019 1:31:26 PM

> The leaves are just starting to change here in Colorado. It's the absolute best time of year! I hope all is well with you Steve and everyone here. Take care all.
- Richard Bates | 9/18/2019 8:00:54 PM

> Autumn's just 'round the corner. I can feel it!
- Steve Herron | 9/18/2019 9:25:04 AM

> Here I am folks. How have ya'll been? Me just trying to maintain, do as little as I can in the heat. Thank goodness its beginning to seem a bit cooler. Ginny just got your snail letter. I'll get the answer back a.s.a.p. Just read another 2 Kathy Reich's books. Well, nothing else for now. Hope all of you are staying well and cool. Hello to Steve, Sharon, Mike T, James B., Curt F. and the rest.
- Miriam A. | 9/13/2019 10:56:49 AM

> Ginny, so sorry to hear about your husband.
- Sharon Mitchell Carbaugh | 8/9/2019 12:39:33 PM

> Ginny, I'm sorry you and your husband are having to deal this. My thoughts are with both of you. I sent you an email. If you didn't receive it, please email me at fohi1971@gmail.com
- Steve Herron | 8/3/2019 11:29:19 AM

> Hey Steve - hate to bother you, but do you know how to contact Brenda DeCarli or Nancy Merryman Miller?? Hope all is well with you. My husband is fighting stage 4 lung cancer right now, so it's pretty stressful around here.
- Ginny Dianasic-Buse | 8/2/2019 8:50:21 AM

> Hi everyone.. Hope ya'll are staying cool. Of course were having our triple-digit temps, par for the course,for late July. Right? Anybody done anything exciting lately? Read any good books or seen any good movies lately? I hope to see "Rocketman" soon. Nothing really to post except enjoy and stay cool. Gloria C.--call me. That's it for now. Back attcha' later......
- Miriam S. | 7/27/2019 9:51:35 AM

> Don't worry Steve, we both made it through with a minimum of damage, and we're still here after 50 YEARS !!!!!!!! Let's just enjoy the grand kids, and try to as cool as possible...
- Ray Coccia | 7/25/2019 7:16:39 PM

> Gee thanks Ray! I feel so much better now. Sharon, tell hubby I can relate. My last surgery looks like a small shark took a bite out of my arm.
- Steve Herron | 7/20/2019 12:56:42 PM

> Woodstock and the Moon landing. Yikes. My hubby and I are going to do a moon walk on July 20, well actually a walk on earth while the moon is out. Yes Ray you are correct regarding too much sun. My hubby has had probably 25 pre-cancers removed. So far I haven't yet, but it will happen eventually.
- Sharon | 7/14/2019 6:55:36 PM

> Steve, you don't look a day over 75... well, maybe a day or two
- Ray Coccia | 7/11/2019 6:54:52 PM

> Old? Why I don't feel a day over 85.
- Steve Herron | 7/10/2019 10:33:32 PM

> Have a GREAT summer everyone. Stay cool, and cover up away from our old friend the sun. I know, I can show you the scars . Be safe and have a beautiful summer. I STILL can't believe Woodstock was 50 years ago !!!!!!! We're not that old, are we ????
- Ray Coccia | 7/9/2019 8:33:15 PM

> SORRY. last post was from Miriam.
- Miriam Appelbaum | 7/5/2019 11:20:18 AM

> It's been quite awhile since I could get down here and post. I really missed checking in. Wow, Summer sure came in with a bang, despite the little "teaser" days we've had along the way. Not ready for it, but then who is!! Steve; THANKS for the info.. I really appreciate that. I wrote her that very day. Sharon; it's really cool about your Zumba teachers being former Fohi Alums. I don't run across any Fohi people, but there are many former L.A. residents in my complex. Anyway; I hope Steve, Ginny, Sharon, Ray,Mike T., James, and the rest, are doing well. That's all I've got for now. Take care and STAY COOL!!!

> Hey, so far summer has been mild, but heat is coming soon. Have not seen Miriam on here lately. Oh I just remembered, this is really exciting news, My Zumba instructor went to Fohi, 20 years ago, and there is another lady in the Zumba class that is a Fohi grad. Well now isn't that exciting news.
- Sharon | 6/25/2019 7:12:16 PM

- Steve Herron | 6/14/2019 1:57:13 AM

> LOL, well I hope not Ray.
- sharon | 6/13/2019 4:35:49 PM

> Sharon, you'll probably be the last one on this site. You'll post, " is anyone else there ? " and get crickets..... Nice to hear from you.
- Ray Coccia | 6/8/2019 2:12:31 PM

> Hi people, I am still here, just been busy, busy. And that is good, keeps me out of trouble. All is well, hope everyone is doing great and ready for summer.
- Sharon | 6/4/2019 7:10:34 PM

> Where is everyone ???? I've read the obituaries and there aren't THAT many people in it...
- Ray Coccia | 5/18/2019 8:58:16 PM

> Oh absodoggonelutely to Bayou and anything CCR.
- Sharon | 5/4/2019 11:08:21 AM

> Almost anything CCR.
- Steve Herron | 5/2/2019 11:22:08 PM

> Sharon, I bet when Born on the bayou would start, you'd be up and dancing...
- Ray Coccia | 5/2/2019 11:03:06 PM

> LOL, yes two more good ones, but a few drinks and I will be snoring away LOL.
- Sharon | 4/29/2019 1:50:26 PM

> KC and the Sunshine band, Shake your booty
- Ray Coccia | 4/28/2019 7:18:21 PM

> And if the mood hits you and you've had a few too many drinks there's David Rose's "The Stripper" :)
- Steve Herron | 4/28/2019 5:51:37 PM

> Oh those are both very good suggestions, thank you
- Sharon | 4/28/2019 5:45:19 PM

- Steve Herron | 4/27/2019 8:02:02 PM

> Well James I did enjoy your comment but it was too deep for me. Okay now I have a silly question for you guys. I have wedding RSVP, this is going to be a fun wedding, but one question on the card ask. "We promise to hit the dance floor if the DJ plays ________. Well, I can't decide what song to write down. I love to dance, so it does not take much to get me dancing. I was thinking "The Little Old Lady from Pasadena, it has a great beat. Any suggestions.
- Sharon | 4/27/2019 6:49:09 PM

> James, I read nothing "toxic" in your prior comment, but your last comment certainly had some negativity. Be advised, no one here is obligated to reply, comment or provide entertainment for any other. Often times I will not post a comment for weeks on end. I may not have anything to add to a prior post or maybe I just have nothing to say at all. I'm sure many here feel the same way. The main goal of this website and it's message board is to keep classmates connected and informed. That can best be done by keeping things light-hearted and staying away from "heavy" subjects. All this being said, I apologize for our website not meeting your expectations.
- Steve Herron/FOHI71.COM | 4/26/2019 7:26:04 PM

> Well; I did not think or feel that my last comment was going to be toxic enough to put all who visit this site off. No comments after a fairly nice set of comments shows that the last comment touched a few nerves, possibly. Well, I suppose that this will be my last comment as you all have shown that you really are not interested in what seemed to be a good set of conversational words. Bye.
- James Blake | 4/26/2019 8:17:04 AM

> Rod; The mind is a terrible thing to waste. The brain cells that are destroyed by drinking alcohol or using drugs never regenerate. Humanity has never been pushed to use the full power of the brain. It can take us to places we could never have imagined. It can lift use out of depression or take us deeper into it than we could have ever believed. It can make us do things un-human or leave us withering in the muck and mire of the world. All the science in the world cannot control it, nor has any human ever be able to duplicate it. You mentioned the good things where we can be taken, yet, you said nothing bout all the bad or evil places it can take us. Two sides of the same coin. Be well and keep the faith.
- James Blake | 4/16/2019 7:33:20 PM

> James, In our Earthly state we can only imagine other dimensions and what it would be like in those dimensions. The mind is the host to those worlds. Sometimes one can almost reach another dimension in the twilight area between wake and sleep states if the mind is open and unabstructed. This twilight area or other dimension is very peaceful and can introduce memories from one's past, things long forgotten. Peace and tranquility can be found in this dimension for there is love of people and places in the past. May you travel there often.
- RS | 4/15/2019 6:50:59 PM

> Sharon. Nice to hear from you and glad to hear all is well. Yes, the dead man (Rod Serling) and I exchanged a few comments and it was or is some intriguing banter. He still needs to respond so we can see what he has to say about the things that were presented to him in my last entry to him. It seems that a lot of the regulars have either gone on vacation or have gone deaf, dumb, or blind as they have not had any input into anything that has been said lately. Oh well, you are here, Rod is here and I am here, that sounds like enough to keep things going until the rest of them wake up and smell the roses. Be blessed and safe. Talk more with you later.
- James Blake | 4/15/2019 6:20:14 PM

> I just now was going to ask the same question as James. It is nice to see others on the site, but yes where have the rest of us gone. And I love the Twilight Zone. Anyway hope all is well with everyone. Hubby and I have been busy with lots of things, and we are well. James you are funny and I enjoy your commentary.
- Sharon Mitchell Carbaugh | 4/15/2019 11:38:08 AM

> Well, what about you Rod. Most times it seems that people use pills or some other substance to try and get to that other dimension you mentioned. Only a rare few get to it or are taken to it ala the natural way. True, we do escape the supposed realities of this world from time to time but who knows. How is it that you know where this dimension is but yet you say nothing about how one is to get there or be taken there. Expand the knowledge and understanding of all those who use this site and tell use how we make it to that fifth dimension you so plainly drew. Are you certain that there is not a sixth or even a seventh dimension or maybe, just maybe, even more that the human mind could never comprehend?
- James Blake | 4/14/2019 8:46:49 AM

> There is a fifth dimesion, beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is in the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.
- Rod Serling(aren't you dead?) | 4/14/2019 1:25:44 AM

> All-ee, all-ee outs in free. Where oh where are all those who visit this site. Must have been a really bad happening that took everyone away to another dimension or something. Maybe I just missed out on being taken or something. Space aliens no doubt.
- James Blake | 4/14/2019 1:17:08 AM

> Jennifer, I am retired, not so sure about "all grown up." In any event, I'd love to catch up. I don't know your husband's name (although I heard the last name may sound familiar to me). Don't want to post my phone number but if you send me your phone number on my email it should be safe enough. My email is jpowell7760@yahoo.com, although Washington is pretty liberal and they may have my email blocked.
- Doug P. | 3/16/2019 1:16:30 PM

> Doug, I can't believe we are all grown up and now retired. Who can forget hiking in the Jurupa Hills. If you get a chance, call me! We're in the Grant County, WA phonebook under my husband's name.
- Jennifer | 3/14/2019 7:27:49 AM

> Doug- Yeah, pretty much the same path for me. 8 years in the Navy, spent 35 years as a Respiratory Therapist, working in 5 different states and 2 countries. Married for 44 years now, 2 kids and 2 grandkids. Never would have predicted that. Only a few people from the Fohi years I've kept in touch with and only Jackie Velasquez that I've really seen on a regular basis. That's all in the past. Moved out and onward. Glad to hear you've pretty much done the same.
- Larry Barron | 3/12/2019 10:08:38 AM

> Sounds like you did things right and have a good life. Don't know that many would have voted the two of us most likely to succeed, least ways at least me. I fooled a good woman into marrying me, scammed Sn Bndo County out of a retirement, and then again another small one from the state, then moved out of state before anyone caught on. You take care of yourself.
- Doug Powell | 3/10/2019 5:27:54 PM

> Hey Doug, good to hear from you. I retired about 5 years ago after a lifetime in healthcare. We were living in Orange, CA. until I retired. Moved to South Carolina in 2014. Charleston to be specific. It's where my wife and I met in 1973 while we were both stationed here. South Carolina is much more retirement friendly than California, though the hurricanes are a concern. My brother is still with Ontario. Wants to retire in 2 years. Take care.
- Larry Barron | 3/10/2019 11:19:37 AM

> You take care, too, and enjoy your retirement!
- Nancy Shane Price | 3/7/2019 5:33:58 PM

> Yeah I was aware of them both. I ran up Vic's obit and read a very touching tribute to him written by Jenny. She always was a class act. Take care of yourself. Also, I guess I should say hello to Miriam A. here as well-I've only known her since kindergarten. Hello Miriam and all other Jurupa Hills alumni.
- Doug Powell | 3/7/2019 5:14:05 PM

> Doug-Nice to hear you retired! I did, too, 10 years ago. Very sad to hear about Terry Molzahn. Did you know that Richard Eshleman also passed a few years ago? Where has the time gone? Jenny's dad, Vic Clotts, died last year also -- I know you knew him too.
- Nancy Shane Price | 3/7/2019 4:58:32 PM

> Also Nancy. Are you aware Terry Molzahn died about a month ago? When I ran homicide he was an arson investigator and we worked together for awhile on the Old Fire in Big Bear (2003?) then he moved to Montana. Getting scary. Ran up the Sun's obits page this morning just to see if my name was there.
- Doug Powell | 3/7/2019 2:05:55 PM

> Hi Nancy. About 5 yrs. ago I retired for the 2nd time and moved to Genoa, Nv. It's a rural town at the base of the Sierras, straight downhill about 10-12 miles from Lake Tahoe.
- Doug Powell | 3/7/2019 1:29:53 PM

> Hi Doug! Hope all is well with you -- we haven't run in to each other at Staters in years! Are you still living in the canyon?
- Nancy Shane Price | 3/7/2019 12:27:04 PM

> Hey Larry Barron. So sorry to hear about Steve Santos. I can still remember you cracking up listening to Steve imitate Chick Hearn's play by play.
- John "Doug" Powell | 3/7/2019 11:17:34 AM

> Sorry to hear about Steve Santos. Yes James it will be hot as heck here soon in sunny SoCal. Yes I agree there are places in the world far more beautiful than SoCal, My hubby and I always dreamed of moving to Central Coast Calif., but currently our family and good friends are keeping us here and that makes where we live beautiful. We just came back from Central Coast, CA. We go up there four or five times a year to get our coastal fix.
- Sharon | 2/28/2019 12:24:48 PM

> Steve was a friend and teammate on the 1970 Steelers football team. I lost touch with him over the years, but we briefly reconnected a few years ago. He hadn't really changed. Always the 'jolly jokester', he had a ready smile and a snappy retort. I will miss him. Travel light and far amigo.
- Larry Barron | 2/26/2019 11:12:21 AM

I remember him well.He was also my Science Teacher in 7th and 8th grade.I know he was of the Mormon Faith and attended Services at the Mormon Temple near South Tamarind Elementary School.He struck me as a Man with high Moral Character.RIP Mr Pixton

> A former teacher at Fontana Junior High and FOHI, John Howard Pixton, 88, died peacefully on February 21, 2019, in Alpine, Utah. Obituary posted on his "Our Teachers" entry. I'll always remember him for being my 7th grade Science teacher at Fontana Junior High. I remember when we had the "Sex Ed" sessions - boys and girls in separate classes.
- Anonymous | 2/24/2019 11:24:21 PM

> Sharon; I myself was a transplant from SE Ohio when I was 4 1/2 years old and never really fit into the SoCal mode of living or operating, plus I was a late bloomer, if you know what I mean. So, cold weather,snow and freezing rain really does not bother me. Plus I have lived in a variety of cold places throughout the 65 years I have walked this earth and know that there are a lot better and more beautiful places in the world than California. Not saying that California is not a beautiful place, just that there are other places. You have traveled some so I would imagine that you have seen other places. Stay warm and cozy, it will come to an end shortly and then it will be almost as hot as hell where you are. Keep the faith.

> You are so right James, but being a Southern Cal person all my life, I do count my blessing that I live where I live, I don't think I could live in the kind of cold weather they have back east. My parents and brother came from Minnesota in 1952, they had enough of the cold winters. Burr burr where is My fur I like that saying. PS we did not get any snow, just hail. But the local mountain look very beautiful.
- Sharon | 2/23/2019 8:18:05 PM

> Sharon; Count your blessings, not the short comings. You could live somewhere in the Midwest and be dealing with sub-zero tempos and snow. It is all beautiful in one way or another. We have a saying in these parts and if goes like this - Burr, burr, wish I had fur.
- James Blake | 2/21/2019 5:12:49 AM

> Brrrr, it is so cold, we might be getting snow in the early hours tomorrow. Yucaipa/Calimesa. Hope so.

- Miriam A. | 1/23/2019 5:19:55 PM

> Darn it; I had written a whole message, then pressed some odd button and it went into cyberspace. Well, Steve, thanks for the great photo of the Lost Lake & Jensen Quarry. According to photos of the pre-construction of the Oak Quarry (I remembered the name) golf course, they did do some blasting there. I think they made it into 2 different lakes now. But my Brother-in-law and I walked around the course a bit, just below the 18th hole where I thought the pond was, but it was flat terrain. I guess that trying to find old familiar landmarks isn't always easy, but a lot of fun to explore anyway. But by pictures I'd found- there is still fishing in the pond, which ever one. So Ray, you found it to be creepy too, when you went there? So it isn't just me. I had always wondered what the railroad car was doing there also. It wasn't a mining type, either. Strange. Anyway, my bro-in-law left on Dec,26 to go back home to Oregon. On his way up, he stopped in L.A. and saw some more stuff, and got to see the Rose Parade. Anyway; hope everyone had a great holiday and will have a happy healthy new year to come. Sharon go easy, girl. Yeah it is so easy to tweak our body by doing what seems like nothing, until days later it complains to us!! I do it quite often. My grandcat is doing great; getting fat and still sassy. I do exercise her every day however. Well I think that's it for now. Hi to everyone. Hope you're keeping warm, James. Later.......
- Miriam A. | 1/23/2019 5:17:11 PM

> Sharon; I think I like that idea. Nice quotation marks. Be blessed.
- James Blake | 1/16/2019 11:19:29 AM

> James, Yes things will work out in the "end". And yes Steve I will take her for a nice walk instead, or horse back riding on a real horse or even a merry go round. I did get back to Zumba this week, but am only at about 60% and only doing a 45 minute class. Take it slow, I know.
- Sharon | 1/15/2019 5:05:57 PM

> Sharon, The next time your granddaughter wants to "saddle-up", I suggest you just take her for a nice walk. Much safer!
- Steve Herron | 1/14/2019 3:17:29 PM

> Sharon; Good to hear that you are on the mend. Keep the faith and things will work out in the end. We all have those episodes from time to time and the better we learn from them the better off we are.
- James Blake | 1/13/2019 2:15:11 AM

> James,LOL Yes my hubby did do the butt rub and it did help and I have done some exercise for the problem. I did not have to take any medication today, so I am on the mend. Getting old is so fun LOL
- Sharon | 1/11/2019 7:53:48 PM

> Sharon; If I knew you better I would suggest that you get a nice and loving butt rub from your hubby and have him use some muscle relaxing ointment on it, nothing that burns or stings, just some nice gel or lotion to loosen that muscle. Or you could go to a chiropractor and get some adjustments. However I do not know you well enough so I will not suggest that. You probably already thought about both of those things anyway. I do hope you feel better soon. Age has a way of showing us that it is here in many different ways.
- James Blake | 1/11/2019 12:57:15 AM

> Oh yes, A quote from I believe the Top Gun movie. "My brain is writing checks, that my body can't cash". I am still limping around, slowly getting better. LOL
- Sharon | 1/6/2019 11:29:27 AM

> Happy new year to everyone. Sharon, I had to laugh at your Storie about your granddaughter, I'm laughing with you not at you. I have done similar things, we probably all have. In my minds eye I'm still 19 years old. Then you try something that you shouldn't and your body says to you I don't think so, and you pay for it. Steve I hope you will keep us posted when you get to see your granddaughter. Take care everyone.
- Richard Bates | 1/5/2019 4:42:34 PM

> Happy New year to everyone. I started out the New Year allowing my almost 7 year old granddaughter who weighs 41 pounds ride on my back and play horse. I tweaked my left glutenous, and now I am in PAIN. It is starting to subside, but at my age it ain't going to be quick. WHAT WAS I THINKING? ugh.
- Sharon | 1/5/2019 2:20:27 PM

- Steve Herron | 12/30/2018 11:47:12 PM

> I have never been to it lost lake, but have heard of it. Someone told me, can't remember who, but they said it was a dumping pond for some sort of chemicals, No clue if that is true or when it was used. Probably just an urban legend. Today I am chilling out. Had a bunch of people at our house yesterday, it was fun, but I am pooped out LOL.
- Sharon | 12/26/2018 12:16:31 PM

> I fished both ponds several times. Caught a lot of fish, but it was always creepy.
- Ray Coccia | 12/23/2018 11:32:21 AM

> We went recently to the other side of Sierra to where the newish Oak Quarry Golf Club is. I was trying to visualize where the old "lost lake" was; used to be that you make a right at Sierra and Armstrong road and make another right and go up a dirt road; then you went through a fence and there was a huge field. Then you went to the edge and you could look down to a huge pond, against the rock face. I don't know why it was so important for me to find it, but we walked through the golf course to try to find it. Not sure the exact spot. Either the rock face has been blasted, or I wasn't south enough on Armstrong. Went there with a friend back in the 1980's. There was an old railroad car there in the field. Had heard that there were cars buried in the pond. Does anyone remember this?
- Miriam Appelbaum | 12/22/2018 4:11:34 PM

- Sharon | 12/21/2018 4:43:21 PM

> Oops-- sorry Sharon; just saw your post. Thanks for the good words. I had a senior moment there.
- Miriam Appelbaum | 12/19/2018 12:54:12 PM

> Sorry but who put my name after the short post of ll/18? Wasn't my post. Anyway, folks hope ya'll had a good Thanksgiving. Ours was good. My brother in law just came back from his solo foray into the Calif. desert. He probably took in 1,000 miles or so. Now, He coming to the end of his visit. Time to get back to business and get back to Oregon and find suitable living places for himself. It's been an interesting but strange visit, coming down here without my sister. It will be 1 year tomorrow, since she died. We will keep in touch though, and I plan to go up and visit him, once he settles in. Anyway; cute picture Steve. Nice looking sibs you have. I remember your older brother Randy, I think was his name. Wasn't he in the class of '69/ Anyway; hope everyone is well, and has a great Xmas and healthy, happy New Year. I'll be back soon.

- Sharon | 12/16/2018 12:05:55 PM

> Sharon, I'm doing my best to keep up the redhead population numbers.
- Steve Herron | 12/15/2018 12:56:26 PM

> I so love red hair (natural that is) We need more red heads. I did see quite a few when we went to Newfoundland, back in September.
- Sharon | 12/8/2018 8:06:53 PM

> Thanks Sharon! Ray, we were quite a spectacle with all that red hair when we were all together. People would stop and stare at us. Too bad the photos not in color. I remember that Christmas very well. Things were pretty lean for the Herron family that year and my grandma and uncle came to the rescue making our Christmas joyful.
- Steve Herron | 12/8/2018 11:16:51 AM

- Sharon | 12/3/2018 4:26:21 PM

> Ray, I see The Home Depot is having a pretty good sale on mirrors. You probably should take advantage of that. Yours has been lying to you.
- Steve Herron | 11/29/2018 12:27:43 AM

> Funny you should mention Butch. He showed up on my Facebook. We looked exactly the same in grade school. He'd get in trouble for what I did, and vice versa. But now, I'm much better looking than he is....
- Ray Coccia | 11/28/2018 10:03:25 PM

> Well Ray, at least you got the easy ones right. That's not Sue Abascal.
- Steve Herron | 11/27/2018 10:36:11 PM

> Dave Mc Gill, John Fredrick, and Sue Abascal are the only ones I recognize
- Ray Cocia | 11/27/2018 8:58:03 PM

> James, Getting warmer! At least they're human characters and not cartoon characters. I don't recall Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid going to Fohi. I do remember Butch Hill, but I don't think he had a six-shooter toting partner. You might try again.
- Steve Herron | 11/27/2018 1:32:21 PM

> Steve; OK, how about these - Thunderbolt and Lightfoot in front standing, then Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid on the left, with the Lone Ranger on the right while Tonto takes the photo. Is that better or closer??? Yes, Snow White was a great all time movie, I agree.
- James Blake | 11/27/2018 10:34:42 AM

> James, Good try, but not even close. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is one of my favorite Disney movies.
- Steve Herron | 11/27/2018 9:27:01 AM

> Steve; Here is a shot at naming all five classmates - Doc, and Grumpy in front standing. Happy and Sleepy on the left side, with Sneezy on the right side. Happy is in the restroom taking care of some personal business thus missing out on the photo shoot, and Bashful is the one taking the photo as he is not to photogenic. How is that???
- James Blake | 11/27/2018 2:58:23 AM

> On the "Welcome" page there is a photo of our 5 classmates in costume on our senior float. Can you name all 5?
- Steve Herron | 11/26/2018 11:29:25 AM

> Oh yes we do have brain farts from time to time LOL. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. Ours was fun, had family on both sides here and it was relaxing and everyone helped with clean up. I am thankful to have a nice family on both sides and good friends. Oh yeah I never could jump over a fence.
- Sharon | 11/23/2018 2:23:54 PM

> Ray, what you are doing is not called jumping a fence, it is called walking over it once it has been hit with your truck and laying on the ground. There is a difference. The more we communicate, the more active our brains stay and if we stay sharp then all things are possible. Everyone be safe this holiday season and look forward to whole new year that is coming.
- James Blake | 11/23/2018 10:07:37 AM

> Hey, I take umbrage at that fence jumping comment. I can STILL jump them.....except, now I knock them over with my truck first. You know, at least we're all able to read these comments, and respond in a fairly intelligent ( even ME ) manner. Give thanks to God we still can. Many of our classmates can't.
- Ray Coccia | 11/21/2018 8:30:05 PM

> Sharon; Fret not, dear Sharon, we all have a brain fart from time to time and it is just all part of being human. It was nice of you to come back to the site and post the correction so we could all understand a bit better. Enough of this old biddy stuff, You is still a spring chicken and mentally sharp, yes, none of us can jump the fences like we use to or run as swiftly as we once did, but we are all still rocking and rolling.
- James Blake | 11/21/2018 10:07:41 AM

- Sharon | 11/19/2018 7:19:46 PM

> Good to see you on here and I love your term "dudettes" Enjoy your sightseeing with your BIL. Yes the fires are so horrible, It makes me very sad for the people and animals.
- Miriam | 11/18/2018 7:31:35 PM

> Hi All; Steve and Sharon, THANKS for the birthday wishes. It was O.K. I've had better, but I'm glad to be here. Wow, it feels so weird to be 65. We are officially Senior citizens now wheeew!! I don't think I feel older, just old sometimes. Great photos Steve, Thanks for that, as well. I don't remember that picture of me of 7th grade, because I rarely ever have pictures of me taken with eyeglasses on. Good photos of all of us, anyway. James, you're not a towhead anymore, but you're still a handsome dude!! My widower brother-in-law is having fun seeing some of California's treasures. Tomorrow, we are going to the Getty Museum in L.A May head down to the Salton Sea, and see stuff down there. Who knows. He was married to my sister Marsha, Class of '67' Alum. He's also really enjoying our weather down here., as compared to Oregon. Well, it's so very tragic, with all the fires that has taken so many lives and property. Also, last time I was in Fontana, the Arrow Theatre doesn't appear to be a theatre any more. I can't remember the name on the front, but it's been re-faced. They just built another shopping plaza in northern Rialto., like they need more of those here. On a cheerier note, hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving. Just don't buy turkeys...I bought 2 roasting hens, and going to roast them on the rotisserie. Yum! Later, dudes and dudettes....
- Miriam A. | 11/16/2018 3:59:30 PM

> aahhhh, you guys are very sweet and good looking in your day and probably still are good looking and if you aren't who cares as long as you are good people, that is what counts. Now my hubby is both good looking and a real sweet heart. Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoy. Stay safe.
- Sharon | 11/16/2018 11:22:55 AM

- Sharon | 11/11/2018 10:36:58 AM

- Steve Herron | 11/8/2018 8:28:20 PM

> Yes, I did get past those 1st days of Junior high, only to run into more obstacles in life as all of us have done, but yeah youth was so short, it's fun to see these pictures. I look back at my younger self and realize I was an odd personality, and still am. LOL.
- Sharon | 11/8/2018 8:23:30 PM

> James, A very nice lady by the name of Barbara Knatcher from the class of '70 actually let me borrow her yearbooks to scan them for this web site. I so far have failed to finish the editing of the scans and get them posted. I must prioritize doing that. I wish someone from Alder Jr. High would let me borrow their yearbooks.
- Steve Herron | 11/8/2018 2:18:39 PM

> Steve; I am curious where you got the Yearbooks for us Sequoia Braves, when you were a Fontana Junior high whatever??? Who is it that is feeding you these photos??? An enquiring mind would like to know. And no, you are not a reporter so you do not have any case for confidentiality. Youth is such a fleeting thing. Once we are past it we can never go back and redo those things that we messed up on. We just have to learn from our experiences and move on to be a better person. Sharon, you evidently got past the panic of changing classes and having a locker, and you seem to have gotten past it rather well.
- James Blake | 11/7/2018 10:49:57 PM

> Ahhh the good old days. Yes the first few months of the first year of junior high, it was terrifying for me. Very scary, having to go to different classrooms and having a locker. I use to have nightmares about trying to find my locker and classrooms.
- Sharon | 11/7/2018 7:04:33 PM

> Yes, both of those pics came out of the 1966 Sequoia Jr. High yearbook. You're both a couple of good looking kids.
- Steve Herron | 11/4/2018 5:47:20 PM

> Ahhh, I think the toe-head looks like a cute all American boy. I don't remember ever seeing that picture, probably came out of the yearbook, which I did not buy. Ah those days when we were young. But it's not so bad being an old biddy, LOL
- Sharon | 11/4/2018 1:01:05 PM

> Well, Sharon was a little cutie pie in 7th grade, wasn't she??? Not saying much about the toe-head in the photo next to her.
- James Blake | 11/3/2018 2:49:30 PM

> James, Sharon, Miriam & Steve 7th grade
I thought I should level the playing field.

> Hi all. It's been awhile since I could get down here. Great photos Steve. Thanks Sharon for the compliment. Ironically, having curly/wavy hair all my life I hated it and would have loved a head of hair like yours straight and beautiful. We never like what we had, .. Anyway; hope you have a great, great retirement. That's a long stretch in one place. I wish I could relate with ya'll on the grandchild thing but unfortunately I can't . My son has been going with a gal for about 3 ys.+, but she has an adult son already. So be it. James; nice comment about me. Appreciate that. Love the picture of you, and me below. Great job on the photos Steve, and great photo of Marty Balin. He and another guy started J.A. My widowed Bro-in-law just arrived last Friday, to spent the holidays with our family. Traveled about 1,000 miles plus, as the weather in Oregon was already 37' up there. Haven't seen him in almost 10 years so it is very good to have him down here with us. Bill Kezar; is Pete still kicking? Anyway gotta go for now. Everyone be safe and well. James, stay warm!!
- miriam appelbaum; | 10/22/2018 3:49:43 PM

> Well my goodness that is a lot, I would not be able to keep track of that many. I will likely have only the one. My daughter is an only child and my granddaughter will likely be an only child. I was practically an only child with just one brother who was 15 years older.
- Sharon | 10/22/2018 11:36:45 AM

> To many to count. I know I have about 9 or 10, but that does not count the ones that I do not know about or have not been told about. It has been a long and fruitful life.
- James Blake | 10/21/2018 1:35:54 PM

> Hi guys, I have just the one granddaughter who is six and we have a blast together. She loves the beach like me. Hope all is well with everyone and I remember most of the people in that picture.
- Sharon Mitchell Carbaugh | 10/20/2018 7:27:29 AM

- Ray Coccia | 10/19/2018 7:41:32 PM

> Hey folks, those checks were not for much and did not go very far. The yearly trip to Victorville was just one of the three highlights the FFA Club had each year. The Orange Show, Victorville, and then Pomona was our highlights. Steve, if you could send me the names of all those in the photo it would be greatly appreciated.

> Yes now almost three months retired and I am loving it. I do miss the social part of the job and the patients, but I am so enjoying doing things that I enjoy, gardening, zumba, granddaughter,and many more things, and have been in touch with cousins I have not communicated with in years. My Hubby and I have been going somewhere to eat once a week and then we go hiking for an hour or so to work off lunch. I don't feel rushed anymore. So yes retirement is great.
- Sharon | 9/24/2018 4:01:27 PM

> Sharon; I hope and have suggested to Steve that he displays more of these kind of photos from other class mates. I do hope your retirement is going well and that it has, thus far, lived up to your expectations.
- James Blake | 9/22/2018 8:05:21 PM

> James, I do remember seeing you around campus. That is a cute pic of Miriam, I always liked her hair. I have super straight hair and always wished I had curly hair. Maybe in my next life.
- Sharon | 9/22/2018 11:21:37 AM

> Steve; I guess I was more of a wall flower back in the day. I posted earlier about being at the Pomona Fair with my livestock when the senior pictures were taken. I was more concerned about the FFA club than social change. Of course getting drunk came in a very close second at that time.
- James Blake | 9/21/2018 10:21:46 PM

> James, Photos of you are rare. Many of us were fighting the administration for our right to look and dress the way we wanted. We forever changed things at Fohi.
- Steve Herron | 9/21/2018 9:04:44 PM

> Well Steve, you are quite the card. Yes, I once was young and dumb. Age has crept up and now I look more like 70 than 65. Being rode hard and put away wet has taken it's toll on my looks age wise. I had the long sideburns because I got caught by the Vice-Principal with my beard and got kicked out of school until I decided to shave it off. I got about a nice week long vacation until my girlfriend (Lorraine John) told me I needed to come back to school because she was tired of carrying her books to class. Send me a copy of that photo if you can. You should have my email but id you do not then here it is - jms.blake53@gmail.com it will be warmly received. Miriam looks about the same but it has been a few years since these eyes have set upon her.

"Women of the CIS. You can obtain the Citizenship of Israel. Marriage with an Israeli. It is possible Formal. The guarantee is 100%. Expensive. Contact the post office znakfortune@gmail.com"

I just thought it would be fun to show you some of the crap that comes through this web site on a daily basis. This is just one that my censoring script didn't catch.

- Ray Coccia | 9/13/2018 5:46:15 PM

- Steve Herron | 9/11/2018 10:49:11 PM

> Yes Steve, Thanks for keeping this site running. I do enjoy it. It's like a family and as I have said, I still picture everyone looking like they did in high school. Wish more people would join in. Especially since I do not use face book.
- Sharon | 9/10/2018 7:51:14 AM

> Thanks Richard, And no, I haven't met my granddaughter yet. Probably not until sometime in January.
- Steve Herron | 9/9/2018 6:25:10 PM

> I'm sorry about the dead links and empty photos on "Blast from the Past" page. This section used to be hosted on another domain of mine and used here. I did away with the other domain due to costs and have never rightfully restored the photos to the Fohi71.com domain. Just lazy and forgetful. Anyway, I'm now working on it and have much more to share. Someone needs to lend me their Alder Jr High yearbooks to copy. I promise safe return.
- Steve Herron | 9/9/2018 6:22:20 PM

> I see that the 1971 year book is back up and running in the blast from the past section Steve. I lost my year book somehow over the years. Its nice to look back and see all the faces that we went to school with so long ago. Thanks again Steve for all the work you do on this site. P.S. I hope you have seen your new granddaughter by now. Take Care everyone.

- Steve Herron | 9/3/2018 10:29:30 AM

> Steve; I always started the new school year at the LA County fair in Pomona with my livestock I had while in the FFA club. Never really made it to school until about the third or fourth week of September. All being an excused absent as it was a school project. Even missed my Senior Picture that my mom was seriously disappointed in. So, transitioning from summer to school was a good thing for me.
- James Blake | 9/2/2018 8:05:24 PM

> My, my, September already. When we were in school it was a dreaded month. For me anyway. Summer vacation was just too much fun.
- Steve Herron | 9/1/2018 10:14:09 PM

> Couldn't get into this spot earlier. So sorry to find out that Caroline Carpenter died. Knew her since early Sequoia. Went down to east Southridge in Fontana recently, and was very sad to see the remnants of the old Bird Farm on Live Oak. Sharon, Congrats. on your retirement. Hello to everyone, Beautiful grandbaby, Steve. Hope everyone is well, and doing fine. Just trying to keep out of the heat. Kitty and I are well. I'll try to get over here and post sooner. Stay cool and well, everyone. Mike T.- thanks for the info. on Linda. Later.....

> Thank James and Steve. Yes today was the big day. Wow, I can't believe it. 45 years at Loma Linda Unv. M.C. I am going to just take it easy for a few days, then jump into all my projects and visit with other retired friends.
- Sharon | 6/29/2018 4:24:02 PM

- Steve Herron | 6/29/2018 9:52:17 AM

> I won't take Vicodin, or any other pain killers ( imagine that ) I just don't like the way they make me feel. I just learn to live with it, and keep working every day....

- Ray Coccia | 6/24/2018 8:19:37 PM

> Ray, thanks! I hardly wait to hold her. Sharon, It may sound like you're rushing things, but the way the last 20 years have gone by, she could be married tomorrow. Ugh! Now another issue I've been dealing with; If you haven't had to deal with an outbreak of "Shingles", well I'm here to tell you, You're just letting the best things in life pass you by.
- Steve Herron | 6/24/2018 1:10:03 PM

> Red hair or not, she is beautiful. Glad she doesn't take after her grandpa
- Ray Coccia | 6/21/2018 6:20:44 PM

> Oh that is good to hear Steve, I love red hair and yes you are correct red hair is becoming rare, make sure she marries another red head, Oh my I am rushing things LOL.
- Sharon | 6/21/2018 6:09:48 PM

> Yep, she's a redhead. We're getting rare.
- Steve Herron | 6/20/2018 8:02:34 PM

> Hi Steve, oh my I bet you can hardly wait to see her. Are Juniper's parents military? We plan to go to Newfoundland in September with are neighbors, who are our travel companions for big trips, we travel very well together, it will be our 11th trip with them. James I really have not given the possible dividing of California much thought.
- Sharon | 6/15/2018 5:42:15 PM

> Thanks Sharon and Ray. I haven't even met her. She's in Japan. Maybe I'll see her in January. Sharon's counting the day's! Any big travel plans?
- Steve Herron | 6/15/2018 10:57:00 AM

> Steve, Sharon, and Ray, Miriam, as well as anyone else that desires to pipe in- I am not going to comment about the dating thing as it was between me and whoever I went on a date with. I am not going to comment on the baby as there are all kinds of grandchildren out there somewhere and some are mine. I have a question that anyone of us could answer and it is this - How do you feel about the possible new three California's ??? If voted in there would be three and let me know how you all feel about dividing up a state like that, especially with the creative names that have been proposed, or is that just an indication of the number of living brain cells left west of Arizona and Nevada, and south of Oregon???
- James Blake | 6/15/2018 5:20:37 AM

> Oh My she is just adorable and so alert Yeah enjoy them while they are little. Mine is 6 now and she is so much fun, we bring her over every Sunday to play. Two weeks left and I am done working Yay!!!!!
- Sharon | 6/14/2018 5:57:51 PM

> Very cute !!!! Just wait, my oldest starts high school in September,,, Enjoy her while she lets you :)

- Steve Herron | 6/12/2018 10:30:12 PM

> Ahhhh Ray, that is so nice. I can't remember what Jim was wearing or what I was wearing. Did you have many more dates. My first long term dating person was Bruce. Then a guy named Tim for several years, both Bruce and Tim good guys. then my hubby Herb a really fabulous guy.
- Sharon | 6/8/2018 8:30:36 AM

> And I will never forget that day....
- Ray Coccia | 6/7/2018 11:34:36 PM

> Mine was Lynn Johnson, my parents drove ( we were 15 ) We went to see the way we were, and she cried most of the movie. She wore white Levi's, and light blue sweater, and had a blue ribbon in her hair. She looked spectacular. I guess it made a pretty good impression on me.....
- Ray Coccia | 6/7/2018 11:33:25 PM

> Oh wait, I can't remember, I think I was actually just starting high school and he was starting senior year, I think. Jeepers I can't place the time for sure, just that I know it was an official first date. I am just a babbling old biddy.
- sharon | 6/7/2018 6:57:34 PM

> Okay, I believe my first official date, guy picks you up in his car and parents know you are going on a date. Was Jim Enslow a senior when I was just starting Junior year, we went to the CCR concert at the Swing, I had a blast.
- Sharon | 6/7/2018 4:46:25 PM

> Hola! Miriam and Michael! OK, I kinda messed up Ray's discussion topic by being a smart-ass. Assuming a date means with a person you're not going steady with and you've asked them out or maybe they asked you out. Officially mine would have been Linda Janka. She asked me to the Luau Dance in 1969. Next!
- Steve Herron | 6/6/2018 8:05:51 PM

> Hello Miriam, Linda has lived in North London with hubby for many years now. I got to visit with them not long ago. She has not changed, still sweet Fontana Girl.
- MT | 5/30/2018 10:53:07 PM

> Hi folks; How is everyone doing? Hope all of the moms had a great Mother's day. James; When did you become an ordained minister? Just curious. What kinds of things do you write? Have you ever submitted any of your writings to magazines? I agree Ray, this IS supposed to be a fun site. No dark subjects, dark humor, etc. etc. Right? Well nothing really new in the I.E. other than the powers that be, are filling in every empty acre of open space they can get their hands on. Pity. Rialto is growing in leaps and bounds, yet I guess that's everywhere. It wouldn't be so bad if they leave some of our landmarks/historical places alone. Oh well. It is what it is. Oh; to Linda Pearson,--if you still check this site, I wonder if you were able to be at the Royal Wedding? Do you still reside in England? What a lovely country that is. Well, hope all is well with everyone. I'm still truckin'. Hello Mike T., Sharon, Steve, Ray, Ginny, etc.
- Miriam A. | 5/30/2018 11:23:52 AM

> @Marty Bananas: Agreed!
- Steve Herron | 5/30/2018 10:20:06 AM

> I don't like dates, but my Dad loved them.
- Steve Herron | 5/30/2018 9:34:01 AM

> What kind of definition of a date are you using??? Dates can come in many different colors, ranges, as well as activities. Just wondering.
- James Blake | 5/28/2018 9:07:39 PM

> OK, to lighten it up, your first date. When, where, with whom, the works. I know all of my down to what she wore. now, GO !!!!!
- Ray Coccia | 5/28/2018 8:27:57 PM

> Well, as I see it , we are all doomed but have been blesssed to have grown up in Fontana at that time in history. It was such fun! That world is long gone, but we live in a greatest country in the world and life is still for us boomers.
- Marty Bananas | 5/28/2018 11:26:11 AM

> James, okay, yes I was sure you are a writer and good at it. Yes you are correct Steve, we sure did get off track, but that seems to happen in most conversations. I will think of something, may take a few days. and it won't be as interesting as yours. Have a great Memorial Day. I just finished a party here for my side of the family, and they can be a loud group especially four kids under ten, but it was fun and now for a quiet evening with my better half.
- Sharon | 5/27/2018 5:40:28 PM

> Sharon: It's interesting that the subject matter of this conversation didn't have anything to do with the original question, which was: "We are spending a lot of time and money exploring Mars for life, what impact or implications, if any, do you believe there would be on our society regarding historical or religious beliefs if signs of life, current or past, are found?" Yes, we need a new topic. Sharon, it's your turn to pick the topic/question.
- Steve Herron | 5/27/2018 1:14:25 PM

> Sharon; To answer your last question - I am a writer, a minister, a free spirit, and whatever else my Heavenly Father has for me to be as I am under the Vow of the Nazarite and committed solely to Him and Him alone, none other. Hope you all have a really good time sorting all this out.
- James | 5/27/2018 1:03:13 PM

> YIKES, That is something I would not believe in doing either. James you are a deep thinker. What do you do in life, are you a writer, minister, free spirit? I am just a regular average human who enjoys life as much as I can, and hopes for the best for human race and animals. Okay Steve time for a new subject. Something fun and easy.
- Sharon | 5/27/2018 10:41:24 AM

> WOW - He speaks, nothing about the subject at hand, yet, He speaks.
- James Blake | 5/27/2018 8:23:42 AM

> I thought this was going to be a fun site....
- Ray Coccia | 5/26/2018 8:39:27 PM

> Sharon; You are correct that this is a dark subject but let us explore it. Now, there is a solution to over population and yes it is dark. There could be something that is called selective culling, meaning there could be selected levels of people within society that would be selected for death. Whether it be based on religion, monetary, ethnic, or some other standard and they would be eliminated, thus making room for all those who are left. It is dark, almost unimaginable and cruel, but it is a solution. The ultimate question would be do we have the right to do something like selective culling. The powers to be of the countries around the world and all the different governments would have to answer that. Humanity can be and has proven to be cruel and ruthless towards each other. I do not believe in selective culling nor would I ever go along with anything that even comes close to it, but it is there and God forbid, a possible solution to over population.
- James Blake | 5/26/2018 6:13:24 PM

> Well I don't believe there is a way to solve the population explosion. Plagues took care of some of that, but modern medicine has helped a lot with keeping plagues from wiping out populations. I don't believe you could get everyone to agree to keeping reproduction to a minimum, not sure at this point that would help. This is a rather dark subject, interesting but dark.
- Sharon | 5/26/2018 3:34:18 PM

> Steve; So if not in a Capitalist society then what kind??? Many different types have been tried and it seems that all have failed. Sharon; Good point about there being to many of us humans walking this earth. So, how could that problem be solved???
- James Blake | 5/25/2018 11:58:58 PM

> I think we would make the same mistakes, it's just us being human. But I also believe there are just too many of us humans and we consume too much of everything, especially the US. But you don't see me giving up my creature comforts. I do consider myself a bit of a minimalist. But I can do much better. Have a safe happy holiday.
- Sharon | 5/25/2018 9:02:41 AM

> As long as the goal is power and possession, the outcome will always be the same. You just can't take the human behavior out of a human. Ask yourself, what was the motivator for our progress over the last 200 years? Was it to make life better? No, it was money or power. Things just aren't going to change, at least not in a Capitalist society.
- Steve Herron | 5/23/2018 3:23:11 PM

> I do suppose that a good question could be - If humanity ever found another planet that could support life and a migration was made to that planet, would humanity make the same or similar mistakes there as it did here on earth??? History repeats itself and we really only correct our mistakes if we have or are given a different goal. Think about it.
- James Blake | 5/13/2018 8:17:37 PM

> Oh Steve I forgot to comment regarding pushing 45 years married for you guys. Wow that is great, and you betcha my hubby should be sainted LOL.
- Sharon | 5/12/2018 11:57:32 AM

> And I don't mean to bad mouth us humans, because there are so many good people out there. Most of us have not purposely tried to damage the earth, much of it has happened unintentionally. Anyway we just hope for the best and pray for the future generations.
- Sharon | 5/11/2018 6:12:56 PM

> Oh this is good. Yes I agree on the human race making a mess of this beautiful earth. But we are not willing to give up all are many wasteful creature comforts. And Ray I agree, the human race will eventually disappear, and the earth will renew. Yes I feel bad for the future of our grands and great grands. Don't know if it is too late to save the earth. But I remember my parents telling me, "what is the world coming to, it's going to heck in hand basket." But yeah there are good things. I can hear due to technology. Anyway I can go on and on. This is good talk. Have a great weekend and keep on talking.
- Sharon | 5/11/2018 1:47:40 PM

> It is likely we'll poison ourselves out of existence. Our great grandchildren will not appreciate us for not putting every effort forward to preserve life. At the rising levels of pollution and population growth, can you imagine the struggles they are facing? They will look back at our generation and say, "Why didn''t they do anything? They saw it coming."
- Steve Herron | 5/11/2018 1:24:19 PM

> Ray; Who do you think is causing all the pollution on this rock that we live on??? Mankind has polluted the air, the water, the earth, and yes, all the pollution is destroying this place where we all live. We had the industrial revolution with no guidelines or ordnances concerning recycling the aftermath of the things that were being mass produced. Tires, diapers, plastics, and the such. Mankind did all that and it has slowly been destroying what we were all blessed with. You might well be correct about mankind destroying their selves before the earth goes away but does that really matter - If no one from mankind is here then who cares whether the earth is here or not.
- James Blake | 5/10/2018 8:13:48 PM

> Interesting how the supposed most intelligent life on the planet doesn't use its intelligence to take care of its home.
- Steve Herron | 5/10/2018 5:46:38 PM

> We're not now, nor ever, going to destroy the earth. We'll destroy ourselves, and the earth will heal itself, and live a happy life until something else takes over, and the circle continues.
- Ray Coccia | 5/10/2018 5:04:04 PM

> Steve; We have as a species have truly messed up this planet so what in the world would make anyone think that if we could ever find another world to migrate to that we would care for and take care of like we should??? We have not learned from our mistakes and show no interest in truly correcting them. There will someday be an end to this world as we all know it and that is a shame. We were given a beautiful and bountiful place to live and we have done nothing but pollute it and destroy it. All our fault so we will be the ones as humans to pay for it.
- James Blake | 5/10/2018 4:17:56 PM

> Ray, that would be a waste of money. We all know the answer to that
- Steve Herron | 5/10/2018 12:44:48 AM

> we should be spending the money to see if there is intelligent life here on earth.....
- Ray Coccia | 5/9/2018 9:07:23 PM

> Congratulations on your upcoming 40th. Wow, time flies! Our's will be 45 years this coming December 1st. Your husband should be sainted ;). Profound, huh, OK, We are spending a lot of time and money exploring Mars for life, what impact or implications, if any, do you believe there would be on our society regarding historical or religious beliefs if signs of life, current or past, are found?
- Steve Herron | 5/9/2018 5:27:05 PM

> No I have not fallen asleep. I am just checking in hoping someone will talk. We need an assignment. Ask us some profound question. Oh it is almost me and my hubby's 40th wedding anniv. May 27th. Can't believe my hubby has put up with me all these years giggle.
- Sharon | 5/9/2018 4:41:40 PM

> Everyone must have fallen asleep.


- Steve Herron | 5/7/2018 9:07:37 PM

> Dear Sharon; Thank you for your kind response. No, I do not use face-book either. It is all just to much of a mess and there is no need for that. I do hope that your retirement goes well and that you do adjust well to it. It has a tendency to be different than working full-time and being accountable for your goings and comings. There seems to be less and less of our classmates coming to this site and that is a shame. This site is a good or could be a good and honest avenue for all of us. Sometimes there are those who get on our nerves but they mean well I am sure. Keep the faith and stay the you that blesses us all. Enjoy your retirement.
- James Blake | 4/23/2018 11:00:41 AM

> Thank you Mr. James, yes i think most people use facebook, something I have not started or want to. I am just a crazy old biddy.
- Sharon | 4/22/2018 7:01:32 PM

> Ray and Sharon; Looks like the two of you are the only ones here. Well, how depleted are we??? Seems like everyone has gone off and died off. Or maybe, just maybe, they have lost there intensity and ability to communicate. Either way, looks like you two are true die hards and it is good to see. Have a blessed day, both of you.
- James Blake | 4/22/2018 5:51:32 AM

> Ray I'm here, I'm here. back to work tomorrow we had a nice one week vacation from work. I signed up for medicare, OMG, I am truly, most sincerely old now. It will start July 1, my last day of work is June 30.I will turn 65 July 30.
- Sharon | 4/15/2018 6:12:37 PM

> Sharon, now where are YOU ???????? :)
- Ray Coccia | 4/15/2018 2:30:59 PM

> I'm here
- Ray Coccia | 4/5/2018 6:51:59 PM

> Hi Miriam, glad you have a happy cat. I have two 15 and 6, plus a little mixed chihuahua, who is smaller than the cats. she gets along with both pretty well. Hope we get more rain and where has Ray been lately.
- sharon | 4/4/2018 5:22:38 PM

> Hope everyone had a nice Easter and Passover. Yeah Steve,it's weird but wonderful to have a young, healthy cat again! Just bought her a cat tree, and at first-once it was put together, she's like "what am I supposed to do with that" and once she figured it out, she was in major Kitty-play mode! Yeah, I'm working with her to get her away from her little "cattitude," but with time..... anyway hope all is well with everyone. Till later, take care all.

> Sharon, No grand baby yet. Due date, sometime in early June. Congrats on your upcoming retirement. Just think how old we thought 65 was when we were 17. Miriam, a new kitty, huh? They're all brats! Mine's a beast, huge male. I keep telling my chihuahua, "Look out Gilliam's(my cat) going to eat you." The stupid dog is scared of him. Is it finally Spring or are we in for more surprises?
- Steve Herron | 3/23/2018 7:12:49 PM

> Hi Folks; Sharon; good that you will be retiring soon. Think of all the R & R you will be able to catch up on, traveling, etc. etc. Anyway, hope everyone had a nice St.Paddy's Day. The IE is finally getting the long-need rain, off and on. That's all for now.
- Miriam A. | 3/22/2018 11:06:28 AM

> Hi Miriam and everyone, Hey, what is with the mail, I keep getting things telling me I am turning 65 this year, yeah!!! I know that Jeepers must I be reminded. That's okay. June 29th my last day at work. I will officially sign up for Medicare next month. Hope all is well with everyone. Steve has the grand baby arrived?
- Sharon | 3/17/2018 6:51:22 PM

> The Mummers had the lease on it. That's probably who presented "Fiddler..."
- Steve Herron | 3/16/2018 9:28:34 PM

> Hey folks; how has everyone been? Hey James, it's good that you're well, and decided to re-join the living! Yeah, I remember going to the Arrow Theatre also, as a kid. Also, going to the great theatre on Sierra. I remember going there when it was the dinner/show theatre. Wasn't it about the Mummer's theatre group? I also remember going in there when it was Services Unlimited. They had two of them in town. At the dinner theatre, I had seen "Fiddler On The Roof" Very well done. Anyway, I'm a cat mommy again. Found her in my complex and rescued her. She is 1 1/2 ys. or so and healthy; calico/white. Very pretty. Already got her spayed, and will be getting her shots soon. She's a character, alright, and keeps me on my toes!! Nothing else new, trying to stay well, as everyone. Hello to everyone, and Happy St. Patrick's Day. Later.....

- Bill Kezar | 2/27/2018 4:16:10 PM

> It was kind of embarrassing for Fontana to have the old Arrow Theater become the Pussycat Theater.
- Steve Herron | 2/25/2018 4:18:45 PM

> In the 70s, lot of young Fontanans probably didn't realize that the old Fontana Theater was actually an old theater. During the 70s and into the 80s it was Nat Simon's Services Unlimited.

- Steve Herron | 2/25/2018 4:05:40 PM

> Wow, had no idea that theater was that old. Was that the Arrow theater in the 50's & 60's, Went to many movies at the Arrow Theater when I was a kid. Do not remember "Hot Box' My first Swing concert was CCC. I had a blast, my parents thought I was going to a "Concert" not a rock and roll crazy. I went with Jim Enslow, really nice guy. Ahhh the good old days.
- Sharon Mitchell | 2/25/2018 10:04:25 AM

> Very cool picture Steve,,,from 1937! Unbelievable,,,with the old cars in front etc. Thanks for sharing that...

- Steve Herron | 2/20/2018 8:52:59 PM

> Mike Taelor,,,,,u scored!!!!!!! OMG... My first concert at the SWING was in 1969,,,saw Jimi Hendrix with Vanilla Fudge. Went with Andy Schneider and Bill Uhalley and Joy Harris. You can only imagine that evening. Bill got stopped by cops and had a 'couple' in his coat pocket. But his brother was Fontana police chief. Was strange as they just approached us all as if we were being tagged. We were just walking to the car,,,doing nothing strange or out of the ordinary. Think his brother kept a close watch on him. Funny to think of it all now. not so funny then...
- Sue Miller | 2/20/2018 7:25:46 PM

> Thanks Steve, I don't remember a theatre on Sierra. Looks refurbished,,,nice. I just have seen it in a 'glossy' and online. Plan to take my Mom there for a dinner and show,,,should be interesting as she won't wear her teeth! HA! Feel sorry for anyone that sits at our table,,,lol I rarely get time to do much driving around Fontana when I am there,,,Mom and her house and dog keeps me pretty busy! And friends want to see me and I just don't have the extra time it seems. Generally I stay at the Hilton Garden there,,,too crazy at Mom's...after about 3-4 days I am ready to come back to Diego...
- Sue Miller | 2/20/2018 7:18:45 PM

> I remember The Hot Box. I never went in. Stood outside chatting with Cookie once though.
- Steve Herron | 2/19/2018 12:19:47 PM

> The Sierra Theater, memories of Ed Cookie Scharton. Remember this? Cookie would rent and put local bands there in the seventies calling it Cookie's Hot Box - anyone get the inside joke of that name. It was a great place to score,observe uniquely Fontana mis behavior and listen to Cookie doing his best David Bowie imitation. ps I just bought an original Led Zeppilin/Jethro Tull 1969 Swing Auditorium poster - concert tix price was $ 5.
- Michael S. Taelour | 2/19/2018 11:12:42 AM

> Sue, Congrats for the new Miller baby, Ivey. I guess you're referring to the old Fontana theatre which was remodeled and being used for dinners and shows I'm glad they kept that place. I assume you saw the new library there at Sierra and Spring. The growth in Fontana is amazing. I'm glad you found us again Sue.
- Steve Herron | 2/16/2018 12:17:54 PM

> Hello fellow FOHI classmates, Almost forget this great site. After a few reads decided to respond. ~~Steve, I think the fad right now is to name your children 'earthy',,,dunno' but read your grandbaby girl is named Juniper. Our first 'MILLER' baby since I was born came in late Jan.2018 and her name is Ivey Nash (with an 'E'). We are all very excited! Makes me a great aunt... ~~Here's a tiddy about Fontana. I am going there more frequently as my Mom is still rambling around our old home. There is now a dinner playhouse on Sierra. Quite nice, lots of shows. Playing currently is Smokey Joe's Cafe with the songs by Lieber and Stoller. At first, I thought it was the old Arrow/Pussycat, but it is on Sierra and not Arrow. Something to check out if ever back in Fonta....Sue
- Sue Miller | 2/14/2018 7:33:16 PM

> Steve. No not MIA, never have been and God willing never will be. I was just thinking that if there were some kind of consensus done soon, that when 2020 came around it would be much easier on all concerned. I know there has been some ideas placed on this web page about where the 50th reunion should or could be but I never heard that there was any kind of consensus that was ever arrived at. Was just asking. No biggie.
- James Blake | 2/13/2018 8:56:29 PM

> Hey James! Glad you're back. There's no talk about the reunion yet. Probably won't hear much until 2020. I thought you were MIA.
- Steve Herron | 2/13/2018 11:49:10 AM

> Hey Steve; Is there any thought about trying to get some kind of consensus about the 50th reunion in about 3.5 years, or, has that already been thought about or planned out yet??? Just asking.
- James Blake | 2/13/2018 2:17:46 AM

> Yes they are, and I had plenty of help getting them. and my memory is still very good. :)
- Ray Coccia | 2/3/2018 9:07:30 PM

> Ray, I'm here to tell your kids that they are not completely responsible for all your grey hair. I can personally attest to the fact that some of those aged protein filaments are of your doing.
- Steve Herron | 2/3/2018 4:11:23 PM

> Well, Steve WAS a red head. I had dark brown hair also, GONE !!!! But anyone who knows my kids, knows where every one of the grey ones came from. I hope she is a red head, to carry on the tradition....
- Ray Coccia | 1/31/2018 8:42:01 PM

> Oh yes a Red head, I keep forgetting Steve is a red head. Yes indeed everyone stay safe, it is such a crazy world.
- Sharon | 1/28/2018 2:59:23 PM

> The question is, will she be a red head ? Great news Steve. My 4th was my only girl, so it's a great bid deal when Papa buys her little dresses. Be safe everyone.....
- Ray Coccia | 1/25/2018 7:41:42 PM

> Yes and in 5 months I will retire. I love that name Steve, that is exciting. My only Granddaughter is 6 now and she is so much fun.
- Sharon | 1/25/2018 6:55:11 PM

> I'm glad to hear all of you made it safely through the new year. As of today, 11 months until Christmas, but who's counting? It looks like my first grandchild will be a girl, great! And her name will be "Juniper Elizabeth".
- Steve Herron | 1/25/2018 1:44:24 PM

> Hello everyone, Wow Ray 50 hours a week, I have trouble doing 40 a week. But I did go to my Zumba class tonight, so I still have some spunk left I see we lost another class mate, so sad, we are all getting up there. Well time to go watch an hour of TV then off to Sleep land. Everyone out there take care. Talk later.
- Sharon | 1/22/2018 8:29:06 PM

> WHERE IS EVERYONE ???? you folks should have enough spunk left in you to at least write something. I still work 50 hours a week, and I check this site every day. I may not write something, but I check it every day. I miss you guys.....
- Ray Coccia | 1/22/2018 7:51:32 PM

- Ray Coccia | 1/18/2018 6:58:02 PM

> Ray that is so kind of you to do. My hubby and I played a wild game of monopoly and scrabble, and we still went to bed by ten. We are early birds in the morning, so it is hard to stay up late. Back to work tomorrow but only five months, two weeks, and three days and I will retire. Have a good week everyone.
- Sharon Mitchell Carbaugh | 1/14/2018 8:18:19 PM

> I'm glad everyone survived the New Year celebrations. I spent mine with my mother-in-law who has Alzheimer's. That's three years in a row. At least we still have her. Have a great month, and SOMEONE POST STUFF !!!!! Bye
- Ray Coccia | 1/12/2018 5:47:18 PM

> Hey Miriam, I agree with you on filling up all the land with building and cement, there is less and less open space around here. And yeah don't get me started either.
- Sharon | 1/7/2018 12:49:06 PM

> Hey where is everybody? Nobody seems to post much, these day. Hope you all are O.K. Later, folks.
- miriam appelbaum | 1/6/2018 11:57:47 AM

> Hi Folks; Thanks Sharon, for your good wishes. Appreciate it. I didn't have to go to Oregon after all. My brother-in-law took care of everything up there. New news of Fontana; the Charlie's Burgers in not worth going to now. It's changed ownership AGAIN, and they no longer offer all of those wonderful burgers and other stuff they had. The entirety of their menu includes 3 burger meals, chili fries and chili fritos. Boy, was I disappointed. I wish the new owners well, but from where I stand, they don't have a prayer. Next, since the Fontana Inn is no longer standing, I had seen there a whole line of apts. or condos. I wasn't quite close enough to tell if they were in the exact spot as the Inn, but they were sure close. Par for the course, in our valley; fill every piece of field/country up with buildings. I don't even want to get started on that!! So, hope everyone is well, and having a great start to a great new year.
- miriam appelbaum | 1/6/2018 11:54:05 AM

Happy New Year!




- Steve Herron | 12/31/2017 4:18:59 PM

> Oh Miriam so so sorry for the loss of your sister. That's so awful. You take care of yourself and don't get sick again. And be careful going to Oregon.
- Sharon | 12/23/2017 2:24:20 PM

> P.S. I don't remember the snow from the 1960's, but we had snow in about 1989, I was living in Fontana and took a picture of it. Very cool.
- miriam appelbaum | 12/22/2017 12:17:27 PM

> Hi everyone; Haven't been on here since October. Thanks for all the good wishes for my birthday. It was pretty cool; then I was sick for half of November. Seasonal thing. Took the other half to recover. I was doing O.K until I was hit with a devastating thing; my sister Marsha Class of 1967, died two days ago. Don't know what is to transpire yet, in terms of funeral stuff; my brother-in-law hasn't decided what to do yet. If he does have a funeral, I plan to go to OR to attend., weather permitting. I-5 gets pretty darn gnarly in the winter; I know, I've traveled it in February on Greyhound; and let me tell ya, it was a white-knuckle experience!! Everyone had to literally move to the back of the bus, for weight. Thank God we made it over the Siskyou pass. Anyway, that's really all I have to report right now. Hope everyone is well. Have a great holiday, and a healthy new year. Hello to each of you.
- miriam appelbaum | 12/22/2017 12:13:47 PM

> Ray I remember that snow. I lived up north on Toyon street. That is one of the few times it ever snowed in that neighbor hood that I can recall. Good times.
- Richard Bates | 12/19/2017 8:45:15 PM

> You know I have a vague memory of that, but I also remember it snowing in 1969/70. I remember I was in one of my classes and everyone jumped up to look at it snowing even the teacher. And someone started singing White Christmas.
- Sharon | 12/19/2017 7:52:45 PM

> Does anyone else remember it snowing in north Fontana about 1963 or 64 ? Somewhere in my estranged family bunch of pictures, there is one of a snowman we made one evening.
- Ray Coccia | 12/18/2017 9:12:35 PM

> ohhhh what a beautiful picture. Well winter starts next week, maybe. At least the night temps are nice and cool. We sometimes get a little snow here, nothing like that picture, but enough to make a little snowman.
- Sharon | 12/15/2017 7:13:22 PM

> Give it time Steve, next week it might be ) degrees !!!! Today, you never know
- Ray Coccia | 12/12/2017 8:12:41 PM

- Sharon | 12/1/2017 8:23:10 PM

> Congrats Steve !!!! I have 4 , age range from 13,8,4,and 1. They're GREAT . You can spoil them all you want, then send them home and let their parents deal with them. I love it. Really, they will change your life, in a very good way.
- Ray Coccia | 12/1/2017 7:30:10 PM

> Well let's see. It was a very quiet Thanksgiving, the way I like it. I found out I'll be a grandfather for the first time, sometime in June. And I sure hope we soon get some rain or snow. Damn! So what happened to James and don't tell me Miriam gave away her computer again. I think we have more Russians than classmates visiting here. It's always a pleasure to help Putin spy on us.
- Steve Herron | 12/1/2017 12:57:18 AM

> Me to, I check it often. How was TG for everyone. We had 24 people family on both sides and a few friends. It was a beautiful day. My grand daughter had her cousins to play with (3rd cousins), so she had a great day. Food was good, no family arguments. Everyone was gone by 5PM and that is when I sat down and had yum yum left overs and they were good!!!

> Yes, I too have a tweaky knee. and when it is being persnickety I use those soft braces. It usually goes away in less then a day and I have learned what I can and can't do. What I haven't learned is --- what insurance to pick to go along with my medicare plan which will happen next July, Jeepers way too many choices and hard to figure out what you are getting or not getting. Yikes. LOL.
- Sharon | 10/21/2017 4:34:27 PM

> Hi everyone. Hope everyone is doing well. Steve; so sorry to hear about your knee issues. I can relate;mine got damaged from getting hit by a car on my bike, in OR. I probably mentioned that previously. But these knees go out when it gets damp of course, and if I do the wrong kind of bending. Forget about squatting, any more!! In fact, I just bought myself some new soft braces. Can you wear those, the ones that don't impede circulation? They feel good on, and give just enough support. Have you seen the Doc. for the hematoma? Well,take care of yourself. I sympathize. That's it for now, folks. Be well.
- Miriam A. | 10/18/2017 11:55:37 AM

> Sharon, Glad you're feeling better. I've been down a little bite lately. Sucks! In July 2011, I messed up my knee and could use a knee replacement. Some of my other health factors prevent me from having such a surgery, so I've been nursing the thing along. About a week ago I was working in our bedroom taking down some old curtains and hardware, up and down a ladder. My knee didn't like that and became swollen. That wasn't the worst of it. When walking, it would give me a sharp pain and felt like it would give out. Last Wednesday that's what happened. I didn't fall but while preventing a fall, I grabbed a wall and somehow kicked myself with the ankle of my other foot. Now I have this huge bruise, a hematoma if you will, on my lower leg. Hurts like hell!
- Steve Herron | 10/17/2017 10:04:10 PM

My list of things to do when I retire keeps growing, I am so looking forward to it.My hubby retired six years ago for 6 months, and went back to work as a contract employee for the company he retired from, but he plans to retire again in March.

He's trying to acclimatize. I wish him well. Anyway; Mike T; good to know you're still up and going. Well, regarding my last posting or so, the Golden Embers building is no more, and no sign as to what the next reincarnation of that corner will become. Ginny; my snail letter in on it's way to you.

Or maybe our Mommies were just afraid because of Halloween and needed their man to protect them from from all the scary things. Then who actually really needs a reason for Makin' Whoopie.

- Steve Herron | 7/30/2017 8:17:33 PM

> Thanks guys for the Bday wishes, I had a great day. I still think of you guys looking like you did in high-school. I am still very shy, I think now days they call it social anxiety (fancy words)But I have learned to sort of fake it. I don't know why I am that way, my parents and brother were very out going. Drama class and club helped me a lot. Well everyone have a great week.
- Sharon | 7/30/2017 7:47:32 PM

> Happy birthday Sharon !!! You'll always be the sweet, shy young lady from high school to me.
- Ray Coccia | 7/29/2017 12:29:11 PM

> Hi Sharon; Happy birthday to you! Assuming you'll be 64? I will be this coming October. Where is everyone? Steve, Ray? Hope you're all beating the heat the best you can. There's a pool in our complex that only gets used by mostly people's grandkids, but us Seniors are slowly making our way there. Sis and I go in there about 6:00 evenings when the sun isn't as intense. Anyone doing anything exciting this summer? I live vicariously.... Gotta go,for now. Stay cool folks.
- Miriam A. | 7/29/2017 9:52:23 AM

> Hi Miriam, yeah I hate the heat. Funny hearing you say "us seniors" meaning as in "Old" not as in high school senior. Yikes where did the time go. Speaking of time, tomorrow is my B'day. Jeepers!!! next year I get medicare, ugh. I still plan to retire between Jan - May.
- Sharon | 7/29/2017 8:52:38 AM

> P.S. I was told by a fellow Rialto resident, that the old Golden Embers was being demolished. That's sad, such a neat old supper house. Many people worked there, myself included. Sorry to see such a landmark go away. Then I noticed when in Fontana recently, that there is building going on, at the site of the Sons Of Italy/Fontana Inn. I wonder what it will become now? Ray, do you know? Well, gotta go for now.
- Miriam A. | 7/26/2017 12:07:07 PM

> Steve; did you ever receive the article I snail-mailed you? How is everyone doing? Of course ,it's hot here in the I.E. Never seem to get used to that, and have begun to dread every summer. My A.C. went out for a few days, YUK. But luckily the complex lent me a loaner. Nothing new on this end. The new super Walmart had the Grand Opening last week. The local merchants were giving the first 150 people there-gift bags, which were nothing more than coupons and a water bottle. Too many people, too hot, and it was probably a mad house. So, most of us Seniors didn't go. At any rate, having the new Walmart there and several new-to-the-area eateries is good for us, since there isn't much to do in Rialto. Well, that's it for now. Everyone stay cool. I know I will try!!
- Miriam A. | 7/26/2017 12:01:33 PM

> I happened to drive by Fontana High on Monday and they were adding some of those solar cell topped carport structures to the student parking lot next to Citrus. The former senior parking lot was taken over by bungalow classroom building years ago. What's left seems to be getting the carport structures. I wonder if its still student parking or if the faculty and staff have taken it over due to the growth of the student population.
- Fohi Fan | 7/21/2017 10:39:13 AM

> Vacation? What's that? Things are very quiet here. We haven't heard from Mr. Blake in quite awhile. I'm sitting here remembering the summer of '67. The music, the sunburns, the long summer walks and my first real kiss.
- Steve Herron | 7/19/2017 5:15:35 PM

> No, in 3 weeks, Newport beach, not now. I remember my father telling me" when you start messing with a girl, look at her and make sure you want to spend the next 18 years connected to her " Good advise...didn't listen to him, but good advise. I wish he was here to tell me more ways to live right.,
- Ray Coccia | 7/11/2017 8:49:02 PM

> Is everyone on vacation???????
- Sharon | 7/11/2017 4:35:13 PM

> Well one that I remember my parents saying and I have said it myself, and that line is "When I was your age, we didn't have this or that or had to do this or that" Well hope everyone is staying cool
- Sharon | 6/23/2017 3:00:33 PM

> Sharon, I've been giving your new assignment some thought and can't come up with a thing. Don't get me wrong, they said plenty of things that drove me nuts, but I can't think of anything I use now.
- Steve Herron | 6/21/2017 3:20:46 PM

> Hi Miriam and everyone, Just been having some busy bee weeks, I need to retire. All is well and hope everyone else is doing well. We need a new assignment. Here is one. What one thing do you say now that your parents use to say, and it drove nuts.
- Sharon | 6/12/2017 5:37:06 PM

> P.S.--Steve; If you can get a hold of a 1968-9 Sequoia Jr. High Yearbook, you will find pictures for the "Gone" list of; Dennis Canup, Mike Spellman, and Bryan Williams.
- Miriam A. | 6/10/2017 11:49:55 AM

> Hi folks; how is everyone? I don't see much action going on here since last time I was here. Is everyone alright? Hope so. James; what's up? did you receive my msg. a couple days ago? Sent you new phone info. Well, I'm easing into the "higher tech" world; got myself a new Smart phone. Mike T.; good to hear you're still standing, yeah yeah yeah lol. I'm still such an avid fan of Elton John. Anyway; I was looking in the Reunion Books and had a WOW moment. I noticed a Joel Greene. That has to be the same guy that does showcasing on PBS., such as Curiosity Quest and Inland Empire Explorer. It looks too much like him to not be him!! small world. Steve; I just sent you an article. Check your snail-mail, next couple days. Not much else, right now. Just finished a several-week struggle with keeping my apartment, due to the complex raising the 2-bd.rms. 100%+ higher. But sometimes the means definitely fits the end. I think I grew some more gray hairs in the process, ha ha. Well, hope everyone is doing well. Gotta go for now. Hello Ginny, Sharon, Ray, Bill, etc. etc.
- Miriam Appelbaum | 6/10/2017 11:40:40 AM

> Miriam,Have not heard from Petey 4 some time now, hope all is well with him
- Bill Kezar | 5/24/2017 1:43:11 PM

> Great to hear you're still with us Michael! Live long and prosper.
- Steve Herron | 5/20/2017 4:18:54 PM

> All good here, still vertical and breathing air. Ciao Michael Taelour
- MT | 5/18/2017 9:38:38 PM

> Hey James, what's up? Hey Ginny, got your letter. Hope everything is going well, and you are recovered from your move!! I'll answer soon. Hi Sharon, Ray, etc. Bill K.; ever here from Pete in OK? Hope everyone is doing well and healthy. Bye for now.
- Miriam A. | 5/17/2017 12:16:49 PM

> Hi folks. Yeah Steve, I thought that Catalina was a little far-fetched, but it sounded good. How would the Laughlin idea work? Some of us don't have a car right now; and I wouldn't be able to drive there anyway. Anyway; I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day. I got to see my son for a couple of hours. He works A LOT of hours. We went out and had a burger, and he brought me bouquet of flowers, and some sweet goodies. It made my heart sing!! You dads are next!! Well, Steve, that experience with the yacht sure sounded like a nightmare; and thank God you came out of all of that alive. Personally, I'm not a boat person: the extent of my ocean experience was taking a harbor cruise in San Diego. It didn't actually go into the ocean proper, but it was sea none the less. Afterward, looking in a "gift shop" that was a boat, docked. I prefer staying on terra firma, thank you!! I guess you can call me a "chicken of the sea" Just remembered; took a motor-boat ride around Lake Arrowhead, when my son was just a tot, early 1980's. Was o.k...Anyway; have flown twice; once on a sea-plane to Catalina, and it landed in the water on it's pontoons. I was 19, too young to be scared. Then two years later, took a 727 to San Fran. Don't remember much, except the landing. I'm one of those people NOW, that if I can't get somewhere by bus or train, I ain't goin',LOL. I guess it's just the nature of the beast....Later, people.
- Miriam A. | 5/17/2017 11:52:22 AM

> Oh wow very nice size, but still to small for a bad sea conditions. Russian thing, I am way old LOL.
- sharon | 5/11/2017 3:53:11 PM

> it wasn't a small boat. It was a 42ft Grand Mariner, and a very nice one at that. I'm still waiting for Sharon's details about her Russian " womanly encounter " :)
- Ray Coccia | 5/9/2017 6:04:48 PM

> I want to hear more about the yacht caught in a storm. Yikes!!! I don't think I would ever get on a small boat again.
- Sharon | 5/9/2017 2:52:35 PM

> James, In regards to Chris Dudas, there was never an obituary published, at least none that I can find. I have asked others if they've seen one, to no avail. There are other photos of her I've posted on her "Gone, But Not Forgotten" page. Sorry I can't give you more info.
- Steve Herron | 5/6/2017 4:26:11 PM

> Miriam, In regards to the reunion, not much chatter on that yet. I know there are some on Facebook that would like to see the classes of '69, '70 & '71 get together in Laughlin, which might be more doable for all. Catalina is great, at least the second time I went. First time was on my step father's yacht. What a disaster! We shouldn't have been out because it was a small craft advisory. We were in 20, 30 foot swells and then we lost both engines. It took the coast guard 2 or 3 hours to find us, then another 6 hours to be towed back to the mainland.
- Steve Herron | 5/5/2017 11:58:44 PM

> P.S.--Mike T.; hope you're doing well, wherever you are. Hi James. Hi Steve, Ray, Sharon. Steve; any thoughts on where we might assemble, for our 50th Class Reunion? James had mentioned to me about cruising around Catalina Island for 2-3 days. I was there in 1973. Loved it,but didn't know till later,-- how much more there was to the island, besides the main town. Would love to go there again, and stay. But the logistics could be problematic, in terms of flying there, or boating there. What do you think, Steve?
- Miriam A. | 5/3/2017 12:17:33 PM

> Hi all; finally got over to the library to get on here and say hey. There's been an awful, lingering virus floating around the IE and I'm just beginning to feel human, after a month!! Ginny; assuming you got my card and letter recently. I was sorry to find that your move was so trying. So glad you got to GA. in one piece, though. Wish I could be there to help you get settled. Yeah, the south is beautiful. I once spent the month of July in West Virginia back in 1983. I almost moved there. Yeah, I know ig-pay atin-lay too. But like Sharon, right now it would strain my brain too much, LOL. Funny stuff on here, guys and gals. Keep up the good vibes. Happy Mother's Day to all the MOMS. Later.
- Miriam A. | 5/3/2017 12:06:09 PM

> Oh my I did not think of any of that. Where is my brain. Yes I must do my doodie, I mean duty. Aron-shay 0063 PS are we getting out of control LOL
- Sharon | 5/2/2017 5:30:52 PM

> Oh man! I gotta put my boots on. It's gettin' thick! Where's my shovel?
- Steve Herron | 5/1/2017 9:46:23 PM

> Aron-Shay; Does your hubby have a clearance??? You know as well as all of us do that a clearance is needed and he can only get one if he is will to give up all connections to any political affiliations and stand alone before our fearless leader - Eve-Stay, and devote himself to doing only good for our country. Once he does that then he might be able to go. Of course he could just stay home like all the others spouses and welcome you home when you have accomplished your mission. Besides, you might not want him there as you might well be doing somethings he might not want you to do and the less he knows the better off things might be.
- James Blake | 5/1/2017 6:19:37 PM

> Well you are right guys, I must help our country, can my hubby come also. Aron-shay 0063.
- Sharon | 5/1/2017 5:26:00 PM

> Come on Aron-Shay, do not wet your pants. You have what it takes no matter the 63. Ray is correct, experience does count.
- James Blake | 5/1/2017 4:07:23 PM

> More laughing.
- Sharon | 4/30/2017 1:54:10 PM

> experience COUNTS :)
- Ray Coccia | 4/30/2017 11:16:26 AM

> Laughing, laughing, and more laughing, Womanly ways at 63??? hahaha, Oh my tummy hurts from laughing, aron-shay.
- Sharon | 4/30/2017 10:26:41 AM

> Steve, Yes, delete but that does not give us any information on them now does it. We need to know the things they know. How are we going to find those things out. We could send aron-Shay in and infiltrate their defenses with her womanly ways, that is if her husband would let her travel. By the way did you see my post on Chris Dudas's obituary??? Once you can get it please send it to me in an email if you would please. Thank you.
- James Blake | 4/29/2017 1:50:49 PM

> Oh my gosh Steve you are brilliant, yes yes just delete.
- Sharon | 4/29/2017 12:33:46 PM

> Solution: Delete
- Steve Herron | 4/29/2017 11:18:26 AM

> Steve; They are speaking English, the Russians. They know our language and if they know that, then there is no way of telling what else they know. They seem to have broken our code. WHAT DO WE DO NOW???
- James Blake | 4/28/2017 4:37:41 PM

> I suspected you are Croatian from your last name. Yes I am Croatian on my mother's side, and she is first generation in the US. If you can ever go to Croatia do it, it is a beautiful country with very very nice people. Do you speak any of the language, I know just a little bit, basic stuff, not enough to carry a conversation.
- Sharon | 4/22/2017 11:14:28 AM

> Wow Sharon. Didn't know you were Croatian! So am I! I only got as far back as my dad's parents when they came to the U.S. My dad was first generation. So I figure I've got relatives running around in Croatia that I'll never know about.
- Ginny Dianasic-Buse | 4/22/2017 5:00:42 AM

> Ginny, happy to hear you love your new home. Genealogy stuff is so interesting, I have been trying to find out more about my Croatian grandparents, I was able to visit Croatia a couple years ago and saw the towns they where born in, so that was pretty cool. A big hello to Miriam get well!!!!
- Sharon | 4/21/2017 4:18:17 PM

> To everyone; I just talked with Miriam on the phone and she asked me to post a big hello to everyone and said she would be back on shortly as she is just getting over having a virus. She did say she sent a card and letter to you Ginny but that you probably have not gotten it yet. So, a Big hello from Miriam.
- James Blake | 4/20/2017 9:25:15 AM

> Or just send it to me in an email. Thanks.
- James Blake | 4/20/2017 9:03:19 AM

> Steve; Can you please post Chris's obituary once it is published.
- James Blake | 4/20/2017 9:02:28 AM

> Christine "Chris" Dudas passed away this morning. I have added her to the "Gone, But Not Forgotten" page.
- Steve Herron | 4/19/2017 9:05:52 PM

> Hi Sharon - saying this was an adventure is a major understatement! Both of us said that if we had known how that trip was going to be, we weren't sure we would have done it. But we love it here. It's just beautiful. I had visited my sister a couple of times here, and Dave and I had flown back here several years ago to do some genealogy research. His great grandfather owned property about 30 miles south of Marietta. Went to the courthouse looking for his probate records and couldn't believe the originals were sitting on a shelf - wax seals and all. I asked the people who worked there didn't they learn about preserving records after Sherman burned everything down on his way to Atlanta? I thought they would be on micro-fisch or something. So when we finally get settled in here, we will probably go looking for the property and maybe find where he is buried. How they ended up in the Texas panhandle from here has to be because of lack of work after the war. So we're back! Ha!
- Ginny Dianasic-Buse | 4/19/2017 7:13:56 AM

> I am lazy and my brain does not think fast enough for ig-pay alk-tay LOL. Ginny! wow what an adventure in moving, Yikes, well glad you made it there. Keep us posted on how you are all doing. I have never been to Georgia, only Kentucky. When I retire, my hubby and I hope to do a lot of traveling in the US.
- Sharon Mitchell-Carbaugh | 4/18/2017 5:59:33 PM

> Hi all - I see that you guys know we moved to Georgia. My sister, brother-in-law and her kids and their families live here. We just couldn't hack California anymore. Tired of being taxed to death and ruled and regulated to death. We have a beautiful half acre here - lots of landscaping - bigger house and everything is green! Love the people and trying to find our way around here is fun. Nothing is straight, I swear. We basically are out in the country, to us anyway. What happened to Tony Webb??? Shocker, big time. The last month for us has been hell, but we made it. Drove thru 2 days of white-out blizzard conditions in Arizona and New Mexico (I rear-ended Dave in Arizona; slid in the snow and wrecked the car), and then monsoons in Oklahoma and Arkansas. Like driving thru a car wash. So, basically, I drove here blind and was a nervous wreck. Our furniture got delayed, so we spent a few weeks on an air mattress. Everything is better now, but we will be unpacking for a long, long time. Hope everyone is ok - best move we have ever made.
- Ginny Dianasic-Buse | 4/18/2017 2:59:42 PM

> Steve; Just trying to eliminate any misunderstanding that is all. Did not necessarily feel that you were criticizing, just, that there is more than just you and I on this site and some others might read and misunderstand. Just trying to keep things above board with everyone, that was about it. I figure if you were going to really school me on some words that are put on this site, I figure you would use an email and not this message board. All is good. ank-Thay ou-Yay. Ou-Yay re-Aay a ood-Gay uy-Gay.
- James Blake | 4/18/2017 1:33:39 PM

> James, Please never think I am criticizing. My comments like that are only in-jest. I know you're not malicious. If for some reason I were to criticise someone, it would be point blank.
- Steve Herron | 4/18/2017 12:17:45 PM

> Steve; No, not any at all as I am a Nazarite by Vow and am not to drink any alcohol. It was just a comment to aron-Shay to join in at a higher level and have some fun. No malicious intent in any of my words were meant. Besides I never have been a iskey-Whay drinker. When I did drink it was either ine-Way, eer-Bay or ole's-Stay vodka. It is amazing what fingers can do when they are cut loss and run all over a keyboard.
- James Blake | 4/18/2017 11:34:45 AM

> James, my first reaction to your last comment, "Too much iskey-Whay"
- Steve Herron | 4/18/2017 11:17:54 AM

- Sharon | 4/17/2017 4:35:21 PM

> Steve; I use to eat a lot of those. The big ones that came three in a pack. I wonder if the Russians can read English??? Why would they want to put their advertising on this site??? If they would ask me I would tell them anything they might want to know. It may not and in all probability be accurate or current but they could ask. I wonder if aron-Shay knows pig Latin??? I would not think iam-Miray would as she is Jewish and they are not suppose to have anything to do with pigs or pork.

> Hey Steve; It is to bad that the Russian hackers do not that all we type here is code for something else. It is really to bad that they do not know that this is really a deep cover site for passing information to our undercover colleagues around the world. If they only knew what we know they would be much better off. Supercalifragalisticexpealidoshish, there let them decipher that. Figure it all out mother Russia. You know less than you think you know and no where near what you feel you know. BOO!!!
- James Blake | 4/16/2017 2:19:43 PM

I wish they would get a real job and stop trying to rip people off. Не менять тему из очень интерес&... предмет&... волос, но русские наверня&... пыталис&... опублик&... здесь свою рекламу на сайте.

- James Blake | 4/12/2017 6:10:17 AM

> She asked him why, why I'm a hairy guy. I'm hairy noon and nighty night night!
- Hairy Dude | 4/12/2017 1:14:41 AM

> Ray and Sharon; Yes, unnecessary hair in places it was not when we were younger like ears, nose, even eye-brows. I really do not think that it has a lot to do with ethnicity as much as age. True enough some have hairy backs and unwanted hair in other places that some do not but unnecessary hair is a good sign of old age. Hormones ya know. It hits us all, no matter where we are from or where our heritage traces back to. I knew a woman in Leavenworth, Kansas that had more hair on her back than I have on my face after not shaving for 3 or 4 weeks. Hairy chick and it was gross when I would hug her.
- James Blake | 4/10/2017 10:00:37 AM

> you know, it's not only women who have hair growing places they don't want it to. My daughter in law cuts my hair, and takes almost as much time on my head as she does my ears. We don't EVEN talk about the back. Such is the life of a person of Italian heritage.
- Ray Coccia | 4/8/2017 10:04:59 PM

> Well that pirate picture is still pretty good looking (not as good looking as my hubby). Yes Miriam the unwanted hairs I believe are due to my big chunk of Eastern European and Italian/Greek DNA. Ugh.
- Sharon | 4/6/2017 6:30:16 PM

> James B.; check your email.
- Miriam A. | 4/5/2017 1:04:28 PM

> Sharon; I can relate to the chin-plucking thing, lol. We get hair where we don't need it, and lose hair where we do... I've got a bit of the thinning thing going on, on the left side of my forehead. Not a good thing, but don't think I'm ready to join the Hair Club, ha ha! Yeah, I wish I could have gotten to know Alan Sorkin during Fohi years, but we obviously hung out in different crowds. Later, folks. Miriam
- Miriam A. | 4/5/2017 12:32:46 PM

> Hi everyone; thanks for all the kudos. Yeah, it just had come to me that it MUST be Alan Sorkin. Anyway; yeah, I had to end up giving my rescue kitty back to foster care. It was just too, too much to keep up with. He had a paralyzed paw that got that way from some incident or other, before I got him. He was also older than originally known. They didn't bother telling me that the bloodwork they had done,had shown he carried Feline Aids. So I paid for bloodwork myself, and there it was. It makes cats more susseptable to getting upper respiratory infections, which I was giving him medicine for. Because of his age and fraility, he couldn't have the surgery to amputate his paralyzed paw; and couldn't be nutered either., which was also promised to me they'd do. So it came down to the fact that I just couldn't keep up with all the care he needed. I had to send him back to foster care. I tell ya'll, though; it broke my heart into a million pieces, and I was sobbing as they took him away. Well, I did save his life, but I only hope that he gets adopted out again., to someone more able to deal with it all. I greatly prepared for him and did my best. On a cheerier note, Easter and Passover are on their way shortly, and I hope everyone has good holidays. Signing off for now. Miriam Oh, by the way, Ginny has relatives in neighboring states from where she moved to in Georgia, within several hours drive. Gonna miss her, but it's time for her to enjoy the life she so much deserves.
- Miriam Appelbaum | 4/5/2017 12:02:29 PM

> Steve; Whoa man. I did not say anything about me sponsoring the prize. I figured that would be up to you. You introduced the photo and asked the question, so, I thought you might be willing to offer up a prize. I have already told her on the phone that maybe the prize could be some cookie crumbs at the 50th reunion. She giggled and said, yea, right. I really do not think she is expecting anything but if it is going to be up to me I will find something to bless her with for the intel that she provided. Any suggestions???
- James Blake | 4/5/2017 8:24:37 AM

> James, I agree. She should get a prize. I'm glad you volunteered to sponsor it. :) You're right Sharon, he WAS a nice looking guy, but now he's a hairy old pirate.
- Steve Herron | 4/4/2017 11:03:09 PM

> Wow Miriam that is impressive. Yeah I do remember him now, Nice looking.

> Steve; WOW, she won. What did she win so when I call her I can tell her she won some kind of fantastic prize. That will make her feel better about her cat, maybe. Of course you never said anything about a prize but there has to be something she can win. Us non-brainiacs sometimes must call on our brainiac friends to help us out.

> Miriam is right! Our pirate is the one and only Alan Sorkin,

> Fohi Fan; Many times supposed progress is not pretty and is usually not progressive at all but destructive. If someone is thinking about the people of Fontana they could turn that vacant building into something really nice and beneficial for all the people around there to enjoy, but of course, the bottom line on almost anything is the good old American green back. Money drives way to many things as well as people.
- James Blake | 4/3/2017 8:49:44 PM

> Maybe the City of Fontana should have left well enough alone. About 5 years ago the old Steelworkers Auditorium, which had been turned into a community auditorium for a few years, was torn down to make way for a private college, Westech, to build a (fancy) new building on the site. This month (April 2017) Westech closed down due to financial issues. Fontana now has a newer vacant building instead of the original vacant classic building.

> Well I do have a few chin hairs I have to pluck now and then, And those makeup artist can do amazing things. giggle. I remember the name Alan Sorkin, but cannot put a face to the name. I will look in the year book tomorrow, I have to go watch my TV show with my hubby and off to bed by nine, don't laugh, I get up at 0450. Night.
- Sharon | 4/3/2017 7:24:49 PM

> Steve; I just got off the phone with Miriam and she thinks it could very well be Alan Sorkin. She said there was an article in an old Readers Digest about him and some kind of boat. This was from years ago, but without seeing the photo, she said it could be Alan Sorkin. Is she correct???
- James Blake | 4/3/2017 5:49:51 PM

> Steve; That is why I said heavy duty make-up. It would probably take at least a half dozen of Hollywood make-up artists to even come close to making Sharon up to anywhere close to looking like this guy. Miriam might not get on this site for a while as she only gets to the library from time to time. I will call her and ask if she knows this cat or knows who this guy is.
- James Blake | 4/3/2017 5:21:39 PM

> I think Sharon would have to work pretty hard to even get close to looking like our pirate.
- Steve Herron | 4/3/2017 5:08:47 PM

> First I need to stop laughing over James remark on me in guy drag. okay, okay, I haven't a clue as to who he is, nice looking guy.
- Sharon | 4/3/2017 4:44:15 PM

> Or maybe if Miriam is on, she can name our pirate.
- Steve Herron | 4/2/2017 9:34:15 PM

> That's right Ray, no one will remember or care about our pirate song because, "Dead men tell no tales" OK our mystery pirate is... wait for it...wait for it...wait till next time. I'd like to know if Sharon recognizes the guy.
- Steve Herron | 4/2/2017 9:16:07 PM

> No Steve, I would NEVER sing the song in public or put it in print. Just think, some day, no one will remember what it was, or care . As for the pirate...not a clue. Looks like Dennis Hopper in Easy Rider...
- Ray Coccia | 4/2/2017 8:41:47 PM

> Arrr matey, I know the song well. Not appropriate for this site. OK, the pirate is a member of the class of 71 and was not associated with Fohi drama in our high school years. He did have small part in a Russell Crowe movie.
- Steve Herron | 4/2/2017 8:26:20 PM

> I don't know who the pirate is, Harold Learner ? but I DO remember our own pirate song. Yo ho yo ho a pirate's life for me ,well shiver me .... That's enough . Have a great week everyone. Remember, think YOUNG !!!! +
- Ray Coccia | 4/2/2017 8:13:48 PM

> Steve; No, I do not recognize the pirate, but if I had to take a guess, could it be Sharon in full man drag with heavy duty make-up while she worked at Disneyland on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride??? If it is from our high school days it could be just about anyone. I did not attend the plays that our class put on so I do not know.
- James Blake | 4/2/2017 7:22:05 PM

> Anyone recognize this pirate?




- Steve Herron | 4/2/2017 6:27:15 PM

> Sharon, yes she has family there. Her sister lives there. I do hope you are able to retire at the end of the year. Minimal responsibilities is a great feeling.
- Steve Herron | 4/2/2017 6:23:12 PM

> Wow, that is a big move to Georgia. Does she have family there? Yes I love this site,I don't do facebook, so this is so nice. I wish more people used it. Yeah time sure does go faster and faster as we age and my parents use to say that all the time. There seem to be quite a few people retiring where I work, It is the baby boomers getting older and I hope to be one of those retiring by the end of the year.
- Sharon | 4/2/2017 1:47:32 PM

> Steve; I did not mean to startle anyone. Was just trying to make a point as far as people not communicating on this beautiful website. Not all classes have this opportunity and it is a shame that we are not more active here. That is all I was trying to say. No, if everyone was gone and no one was able to log on here then I would think that the second coming had happened and that I missed out on it. Yes, Miriam told me about Ginny moving to Ga. Quite the move to a whole different part of the country. Bold move. I do hope that they are happy in the South. Good country there. People are a little different in Ga than they are in Cali, but, they will find that out once they get settled in.
- James Blake | 4/1/2017 3:49:20 PM

> James, you had me worried, I thought maybe something serious had happened. I can't answered why Miriam couldn't get in. Maybe her posting was caught in the parsing script for some reason. Tell her to quit using the F-word(just kidding). Nothing here as far as the program has changed. Anyway I'm here doing fine and can't believe it's already April. Boy what my Mom said about time going by faster when you get older is true! Ginny, who we haven't seen here in a while is moving to Georgia, wow! People are just all over the place. I guess I just don't get around too much.
- Steve Herron | 4/1/2017 12:32:30 AM

> Steve; Well, nobody was saying anything since Sharon's last entry over two weeks ago. Just thought everybody passed on or was just keeping quiet. That's all. I know there are people out there. I just talked to Miriam on the phone this evening and she is doing well. She said she tried to make a couple of entries last week and could not get in to enter them. She never could figure out what the issue was.
- James Blake | 3/30/2017 9:21:56 PM

> James, Why? What's up?
- Steve Herron | 3/30/2017 8:37:47 PM

> Did everyone pass away about the same time as Coach Farrell and Tony???
- James Blake | 3/30/2017 4:02:28 PM

> I was very sad to hear about Tony. We saw him several times in theater productions in the area, and I remember his great performance in Bye,Bye Birdie. The last time we saw him was at Ruthann Lawing's memorial service. He was a funny and cool guy, he will be missed.
- Sharon Mitchell | 3/14/2017 6:32:08 PM

> Most get caught programmatically, but some get thru. We've got to keep it spiced up some how James!
- Steve Herron | 3/14/2017 4:51:42 PM

> Hey all, when did we get into the porn business??? Just wondering why someone would even come close to posting something like that on this nice website.
- James Blake | 3/14/2017 4:45:36 PM

> Sharon; It was a very nice dinner party as there were a variety of people there and a lot of good conversation, but then after dinner is when things turned ugly. It just happened that me and the hostesses girlfriend were the last ones to leave, go figure.
- James Blake | 3/11/2017 7:53:15 PM

> Okay, first let me say, my hubby and I have had great dates since August 1976 and hopefully many more to come. But I can remember one date with a nice young man who I had been dating for a couple years, we flew to San Francisco for the day I think it was 1973 it was just so cool to do that and so much fun. Worst date a different guy, around 1974, my date wanted to take me to an upscale restaurant. (I just wanted to go to a little cheap diner) but he insisted we go to the upscale restaurant, and then he asked me to order the cheapest meal on the menu, I think it was chicken. I was like what, I could have had a nice yummy hamburger at a cheap burger joint, ugh. we had a couple more dates after that and then I was so done with him. So those are the best and worst before my hubby. Wow James that is an interesting story.
- Sharon | 3/11/2017 6:41:21 PM

> I remember the words of encouragement Coach O'Farrell gave me after a rather lengthy fist fight I got into in my 12th grade yr.Lasted 4 quite awhile with no serious damage to either party.Still I appreciated the kind words.Rest in peace Coach.U were a good Man.
- Bill Kezar | 3/8/2017 2:15:24 PM

> Coach O'Farrell was a good man a good teacher and coach. Rest in peace, Coach.
