moved -- or just have fond memories of San Diego in the '40s, '50s and '60s.

April 21, 2017

John McGuigan '64 is pretty sure if you're reading this you qualify for the National Park Service Lifetime Senior Pass.   He just shelled out $10 for his and wants you to know it's going up to $80 later this year.   Click HERE for more information.  I'm reminded of the incident at Dixieline Lumber many years ago.  A kindly clerk told his customer that she probably qualified for the Senior Discount. When the dust settled Dixieline employees were told, in the future, to give out the Senior Discount only if requested.

Ernie Cowan '62 made the news, sadly, in a Union-Tribune article about the suicide of popular Anza-Borrego Ranger Steve Bier.  Ernie, it turns out is President of the Anza-Borrego Foundation.  

Bill Center '63 got a shout-out from Padres' Announcer Mark Grant on get-away day in Atlanta last week.  Grant noted that the baseball writer now has a Twitter Handle @PadresCentral  I'm not sure what that means, but I bet I'll find out.

Yikes!!  It was 55 years ago -- April 6, 1962 actually -- that the Nomads played in the Crawford gym for April a 'la Mode.  Click HERE to revisit the invite.

"Runaway" was #1 on the KDEO Top 40 list from April 22, 1961.  I must have been busy studying.  I don't recall a lot of the songs on this list.  Click HERE for a bigger view.
