May 30, 2014

Greetings and Salutations!!  How was YOUR week?  When I heard that Castro had been nominated as Secretary of HUD by President Obama, I wondered if he’d chosen Fidel or Raul.  Turned out to be Julian -- the Mayor of San Antonio.  I NEVER get these right.

“It’s looking tired and outdated,” said the headline in the U-T Building Section this week. Turned out they were talking about the Uptown District that replaced the old Sears store, the 1953 opening of which many of us recall with searchlights in the night.  The NEW center will be called HUB — Hillcrest Uptown Block.  I’m feeling a little tired and outdated myself.

Steve Stone ‘72 found his Oak Park 6th Grade Graduation program while going through his retirement papers.  I’ve posted it to the Oak Park Elementary School page.  Click HERE to check it out.

I got so caught up in the Memorial Day festivities I forgot to upload the May 21, 1964 Pacer, which features a nice little biography of Will C Crawford.  I guess it’s now the Golden Anniversary -- plus one week -- Pacer.  

“Mac” McLaughlin, pictured here in the 1961 Centaur, passed away May 1st — six days after his beloved Eleanor lost her battle with Alzheimer’s Disease.  They were living in Georgia near their daughter Carol McLaughlin Bachman.  Services are tentatively set for the weekend of July 24th at Fletcher Hills Presbyterian Church.  I'll keep you posted.

John Dovey ‘64 passed away May 18 after a lengthy battle with cancer.  Click HERE to view or sign the on-line guest book.

I’m not sure who Bonnie Blackwell is, but she has informed me of the passing of Michael Paul Ziliankoff '65 at Fort Bragg, California on July 27, 2011.  It’s still possible to sign the guest book.  Click HERE.
