** Helpful Info

Will you get the word out that we have a PHS Memorial Book at the Franklin County Historical Museum? Would like to invite any of you to stop by the museum to see if we have a list of your class' deceased members -- and if the ones we have listed are in the correct class! Hopefully, the list for your class is short.

Hello Paul Case,
Dennis Cresswell (class of `58) put me on to you and your newsletter. I would like to send you my e-mail address so I may receive the Pasco High School alumni on-line newsletters. Dennis sent me your latest one dated Dec 22, 2002 and I would love to hear more about PHS friends and alumni. Please add me to your list of fans. Great service.
  I think this website is wonderful. Thanks to Dennis Cresswell for putting me on to this. Great info .. great idea!

  From now on please use my work email address. I'm having trouble with my carrier at home. I don't want to miss reading about people from my class (58) or others.
  Apparently I went through school in a fog because I don't remember a lot of things that are discussed. I do however, remember Mr. Gregson. I struggled through biology. The first quarter I received a "conditional;" at semester my grade was a "conditional;" third quarter another "conditional," which meant that at year's end whatever grade I received would be my grade for the other quarters. I think biology was my first period class because I refused to look at the report card all day. I picked up my cards from each of the other classes and finally Judy McRae talked me into looking at my grade. It was a D ---. I was overjoyed and ran in to the biology room and asked Mr. Gregson why he gave me a passing grade. He replied, "Because I didn't want to see your face around here again next year." In college I had my choice of sciences, so I chose geology to be safe.

  Thank you for hosting this website.

  It has been awhile since I have submitted a note to this site but I was in Pasco a couple weeks ago for the first time in many years. Man, has that place changed! I drove around the downtown area and noticed that many of the places were gone and the ones that have replaced them are much different from the genre of enterprises that were there 40 years ago. Change is good - so they say - but the change to downtown Pasco is shocking.

  It was interesting to drive around and see several of the old places (how many times did I shop in Grigg's over the years I lived there) and sad to see some of the other places gone. Had to stop over at Zip's in Kennewick for a Papa Joe and fries but the cholesterol overdose will probably take years off my life.

  It was also interesting to drive out past Road 44 and go up to Argent. When I was young we used to take .22 rifles up there and shoot bottles. Now there are sub-divisions and farms. The trip out to Hanford that used to take an hour just to get to the FFTF can now be done in less than half that time on the new highway.

  It was interesting to go back but also sad in a way. What "was" is long gone and what remains are memories. Glad we had a chance to enjoy the place and have the memories of what a great place it was when we were much younger.

  My family still lives in Pasco and we come home quite often to visit. I remember going to the football games and having a great time. In high school, I was in the band and on the drill team and loved it all. Many of my nieces and nephews have walked the halls of Pasco High and I enjoy talking with them about their experiences. A lot has changed since I was in high school 10 years ago. I am teaching second grade now and I love it. I have two children and have been married for almost 9 years. We like living on the west side of the state but to me, Pasco will always be home.

  Okay so Blaine and Pat, what happened to the shindig that was supposed to happen over Christmas? I was somewhat disappointed.

  Hope everyone had a great Christmas.
