From: Dave Whitmire (62)

  Paul Case (67) wrote about the pool at Memorial Park being a fond memory to him. That pool has lots of fond memories for the daylight hours one spent there as a child. First starting at the three foot section and learning how to wade and then finally to dog paddle and finally swimming if that is what one calls thrashing about in the water when it is about 100 in the shade.
  It probably harbors more memories for me and several unnamed people (I'll see if they will confess) though during the wee hours of the night. There never has been a better place for a midnight swim than that pool. We would climb in on the girls side because that is where the huge water pipe was that filled the pool. Once in we would one by one slip gently into the pool and swim till the wee hours or just enough to cool off and then climb back out. One night a bunch of us nearly got caught by the police. They spotlighted the pool, and even walked around with their flashlights trying to spot us. I don't think any of us thought we could hold our breath as long as we did one night. We were all huddled around on the corners of the 12' section and as they came around the corner of the building we submerged. What seemed like 5 minutes later the flashlights went off and we surfaced. It was probably more like 30 seconds but oh did that fresh air taste sweet.
  After forty years, I think the statute of limitation has run out on confessing to our little trespassing incident as well as seeing if watermelons float. Maybe Steve Jones, or Ted Osborne, remember how they got in the pool as well as myself.
  Ted, I'm sure remembers Steve and me surfing the big flume all the way up road 68 with him. Our last run of the day was not what we had planned. Ted was supposed to go first on the right side and swim off to the right. I was supposed to go second on the left side, and then swim off to the left. Steve was to surf down the middle and then swim either way. Ted swam back across the flume instead, and Steve landed on him and broke Ted's neck. We didn't know that until we got him to the hospital. That sort of stopped our fluming.
  Anybody remember the sand dune area? Nice place for a campfire and swapping lies. I understand that a few other things probably went on out there. If the ponds are still there, and the Poplar tree on the Eastside of the pond is still there. Take about five paces due east of it and dig down about 2'. Sure would like to know if that case of Oly stubbies is still there. ("No sir officer. Nobody here is drinking. We are all just swimming.")

  To Carol Cubilie [re: the sauce for the french fries at Artic Circle]:
  On my PHS '63 web page at http://www.lvcm.com/reuthers/memories.htm we have the recipe for Zip's sauce. You might remember that, too.

  To Paul Case:
  My 81-year-old aunt, Mary Green Bozlee, would like to become a 'member' of PHS On-line. She lives in Boise, ID. As you can see from her message she is PHS 1939.
  Maybe you'll want to consider a 'membership' for non-PHS students. I got to thinking that parents of some of us might enjoy reading about their kids and their friends and what was happening in Pasco in different decades. Maybe you could include in one of your messages - encouragement for the class members to see if their parents or neighbors might like to join. Not everyone is as lucky as I am - and have a parent that graduated from PHS.

From: Lois Benson Kincaid (64)

  I am trying to find Mr. Banks, the US history teacher in '63/'64. Does anyone know how to find him if he is still alive?

From: Paul Case (67)

  To Carol Cubilie:
  Here is the recipe for the Artic Circle special sauce, from the Richland Bombers Alumni Sandstorm website:

******
Worked at Arctic Circle as a teenager and used to make up the "Special Sauce". We were sworn to secrecy back then, but I think it is safe now to give the ingredients?

  Arctic Circle Special Sauce
  Equal Parts of:
  Mayonnaise
  Buttermilk
  Ketsup

Can you believe that buttermilk was in the recipe. Yuck, but I always ordered extra, just like everyone else.
