Message: I am sorry to report the passing on September 24 of David Baca, our friend/classmate/president from 1969. Thanks to his best friend, Frank Braun, for forwarding the sad news. I knew Dave at Intermediate and at HHS. He was good then and he must have become a fine police officer. We shared a liking for the music of Simon and Garfunkel, which he knew by heart. "And the leaves that are green turn to brown/and they scatter in the wind/and they crumple in your hand," as the song goes....
Hi John, Thanks for informing your classmates. Our condolences to the class of 69 and to David's family.

Message: Hi Tom Shelley. Wow. Someone else remembers Egg Town? Back in the early 1950's, my mom would give us 3 kids a penny for every 5 or 10 dandelions we picked from our lawn. lol The 3 of us would walk to Hawthorne Blvd down 138th St to Egg Town to squander our money on penny candy or if we had enough, pool our money together, and purchase a nickel candy bar and split it 3 ways. At other times, when I was by myself, ages 5 and 6, my mom would write a note for me to give to the cashier at Egg Town, so that I could buy her cigarettes. lol Lucky Strikes was one brand she liked. She would wrap the money tightly into a corner of a little hanky, knot it and pin it to my blouse. Thirty-five cents sounds about right. lol Can you imagine sending a little kid alone now? lol I sure would like to meet up with everyone at the park in El Segundo and say hi. I wished I lived closer, or at least a day's drive away. I know you will all have a great time. Lois OSborne 6-5269.
Hi Lois, Great memories from days gone by. Manny's Egg Town...you didn't need ID to buy beer

Message: Saw Tom's post about old Hawthorne Blvd. The Western Auto Store was owned and run by Lyle and Renna Hambry. Lyle got drafted into the 2nd World War and was stationed in Long Beach. His wife and my mom moved from Ames Iowa to Inglewood to be closer to him. Renna worked for the telephone company in Hawthorne and my mom went to work at Centinela Hospital. When Lyle got out at the end of the war they opened Western Auto in Hawthorne. They had a big female boxer named Millie and she roamed the store. Their son Dennie went to Morningside and eventually flew jets in Viet Nam and retired from the Navy. My mom and the Hambrys would go to reunions back in Iowa and people would always wonder what kept them in Califoria.
Great stuff there Gary. I remember that store had a Model T tire for sale, hanging on the wall. As a kid, and Model Ts long gone, I always wondered who would ever want that thing.

Message: I DEMAND A RECALL! Aw, just kidding. But Susan Adams's post re: "Friendship (s) sent me to the "memories" page looking for a copy of the HHS school song. I didn't find it but looking through there jogged some great memories; the Gunga Den, Utter's pool hall, Egg Town, etc. It also made me remember a few that I didn't see on the list. Meeks shoe repair,(remember when people actually repaired their shoes?). In the little set back in front of Meeks was Tucker's Shoe Shine stand; a real fixture on Hawthorne Blvd. I thought Tucker was one of the coolest guys in town. On the other side of the RR tracks from Meeks was Western Auto. They carried everything! And at the RR tracks between the two was a small RR Warehouse which often had a box car parked next to it. You could walk up onto the dock of the little warehouse and walk into the box car, which I thought was neat. That brought on my "Hobo" fantasies. On the corner north of there was Mastin's Drug Store with one of, I believe, two drugstore diners. I think the other one was in the Woolworth's 5 & 10 on the west side Haw. Bl. north of Mastin's. And then there was Wonder Market. Oh well, I guess this is where old men go when they can't get to sleep. Thanks for the memories John. You do a great job in this site!
Send your Tshirt Tom, I'll magic marker an "S" on it for you. Thanks for the memories too. Mastins, for a kid, was the best place to pilfer comic books. The rack was right by the front door. Also best cherry cokes on the Blvd. Who else has these memories of places long gone in Hawthorne?

(PLEASE, no "hate" replies) LOL
I do believe it should say Friendships too Susan and if yours says it, they all do. Funny that they've been printed like that since 1998 and you just caught the mistake. No there will not be a recall.

Husband was out looking for work and she has 35 cents to her name. I think her name was Frances Rose something from Lawndale Calif. and lived on Montana Street in 1934. Interesting as there were only a few of these letters mentioned of the 150,000 a week FDR received. A well done series as always from Burns.

Message: Here in lovely Clovis, CA we have four high schools and in the part of town we live in we are just three blocks away from Clovis High School. Home of the Clovis High "Cougars". So I am constantly reminded of my home town high school and community. Last night was the second night of league play and I could hear the play by play on the public address system much the same as when I lived across Broadway on Burl Avenue just down the block from HalCap Field. As a reporter for the Cougar newspaper and a manager of the football team (along with Glenn) I was an intense fan of Cougar sports and activities as I could be. So much so, that some of classes aside from journalism and PE were occasionally neglected. Many thanks now to Glenn for putting together our '64 reunion. I am glad to see today that we should have around 100 Cougar alums, teachers, coaches, spouses and friends/family attending. I am glad to be a part of this Cougar Family and the Hawthorne community.
Well said Tom, Glenn has gone above and beyond to make this reunion the best it can be. Just a couple of weeks away. See all the 64ers there.

Message: Is anyone going to the Class of 69 Reunion in October? I thought it would be a good idea to car pool with a designated driver. Five years ago I drove into a check point on my way home from the 40 year reunion. Fortunately I hadn't sampled too many of the really good margaritas.
Anyone going?

Message: Yahoo! I finally had my FIRST Cougar sighting! This morning I went to the Elks Lodge up at Lake Isabella with my dad and the greeter at the door was Janet Shinn Robertson, class of 1955. What a lovely lady. Of course, it was not a sighting for my dad - he already knew her. Don't worry, Clark, at the rate I'm going, it will be awhile before I catch you. John, I have Feedback listed as one of my "favorites" and I have had no problems accessing the site through your ups and downs.
Hi Linda, Great Sighting there boy. A long way from Haytown. Thanks very much.

Message: John, I am still having trouble with the site, navigating from one part to the other and wondered if others are having the same difficulties. I found sort of back way in, but it is a hassle. So I was going to suggest, with some reunions and get-togethers coming up that you include a note on Feedback with some of the info (dates and who to contact for example) so those who can't reach one part of CT can at least still have an opportunity to come to the events. I for one would love to see more people show for our 50th.
Hi Pat, Please email me specifics. Instead of "navigating from one part to the other" tell me from what page to what page. I know there are still problems and would like to narrow it down a bit. Thanks for the help.

Message: JB, I don't know what all this talk is about 'truth' as it all must be an internal bantering going on. I'll only say that it seems to be another dull cat fight in CT. Can I throw in that truth can be a double edged sword, a mixed emotion and/or just a personal opinion. ex: It's like watching your mother in law go ever a cliff in your new Cadillac. Remind me not to ask if this outfit makes me look fat! Also, I wanted to give my condolences to Jody Halberg Weller as her mother just passed away. All our mentors from Sundale ave have left this earth. Last but not least, I suppose I have some major butt kissing to do since your birthday came and went and I didn't get your happy birthday wishes in time. So HAPPY BIRTHDAY SID BAKERMAN!!! I've said it before, and I'll say it again, "I'd luuuuve to kiss yah, but I just washed my hair.
Til, You have to come around more often that once a month to know what's what. Like me going to facebook, I never know what to banter is about. Also, my sincerest condolences to Jody on the loss of her mother.

Message: Here's one thing CM actually got correct. I did rip some teachers at HHS. They fully derserved it. But I did learn a lot from them as a result of that experience though. I learned how to stand up to naked authority and challenge the status quo and not put up with crap from people who are only interested in advancing themselves to the detriment of others. So thanks for reminding me of that experience as I recall the time I told certain members of the athletic department to stick it up up their rear. Their petty retributions stung at the time, but looking back now I have absolutely no regrets. I carried that experience into the school board hearings that I attended post graduation since I had petitioned for adult rights for all 18 year old students. Those are not acts of a coward. That's someone with principles and not some suck up willing to compromise for the sake of fleeting recognition. That later part should be familiar to many. And if telling the truth is a sin then show up anytime with that false bravado. Just remember, I'm faster, stronger and more experienced.

Message: I'm very sorry to hear about my childhood friend Joe Lamonica. We were best friends in grammar school and spent hours riding bikes and playing with his giant Lionel train set. We even double dated in sixth grade. I remember being very nervous with my date and "Joey" was calm and seemed very sophisticated and sure of himself with his. Once we started Jr High at Dana, we went separate ways and I don't remember spending time together in HS. I'm glad we were friends at Sepulveda and will remember the fun times two good buddies spent together. My condolences and prayers to his family.
