==============================================

From: Dennis Cresswell (58)

  I'm the keeper of the class address list, so if anyone is looking for '58 class members, direct them to me. My brothers were class of '56.

  Husband working for oil company. It's quite a cultural adjustment. I make frequent trips to SF and LA areas in CA to visit family.

From: Sheldon Spadafore (65)

  Would be interested in the e-mail addresses of any of the class of '65.

  Also - does anyone have a spare yearbook from '65? I lost mine in a move years ago.

  Wow! Sure got quiet all of a sudden. Everyone must have spring fever - abandoning computers and working in the yard and garden? There are nearly 200 subscribers and everyone seems to enjoy reading, but not writing? Or maybe all Bulldog alumni suffer from FMS (Fuzzy Memory Syndrome) like me?
  Well, every time I've thought this thing was quietly dying, lots of Bulldogs have come through and sent something in. Remember, I can only send out what you send in. It's nice to have at least five or six entries per newsletter - more is even better - but I'll send out something if I have at least three.

Web site change:
  I made a change to the PHS Bulldogs On-Line web site. I removed the 2001 Bulldogs football page and added a new section for class reunion plans and information. The only info I have so far is tentative plans for the Class of 1967 35-year reunion. If your class is planning a reunion and you want to have something posted on this web site just send me the info. I'll update the site whenever your plans change, so don't hesitate to send updates as often as you like.

To Jeff Jumper:
  Your PHS 62 web site is looking good [see Bulldogs Links]. I especially like the music - browsing through the titles and listening to some of those oldies stirs lots of memories (a cure for FMS?).

  Speaking of FMS, I wonder if riding laundromat dryers helped cause that. Pretty good ride for a dime - at least I think it was!

To William Reinhardt:
  Making Spudnuts was one of my first jobs (bread truck drivers did most of the delivery then) during my junior year. I went to work at 11:00 pm and got off around 6:00 am. I don't know if that's legal these days. The owner was usually drunk on Friday nights and Saturday morning's raised Spudnuts were generally an oval shape - from sagging on his thumb as he cut them out of the dough.
  There was one day each week that the bread truck drivers didn't deliver - Wednesday, I think - and I had the pleasure(?) of dropping off Spudnuts at various restaurants, etc. The one place that sticks in my mind is a tavern that was located just north of the underpass that leads to east Pasco. I can't remember the name (FMS again), but I can sure remember the stale smell of liquor and smoke at 5:00 in the morning!
  My sister Linda (61) almost bought the Spudnut Shop in Pasco. In fact, that may have been what led to me getting a job there. I'm reasonably sure she's glad the deal fell through.

Re: Edgar Brown Memorial Stadium:
  The Pasco City Council (if I understand correctly) has offered some financial support to help pay for installation of Field Turf in the stadium - to be done this summer, I believe. Field Turf is the same stuff they have at Husky Stadium and will have at the new Seahawks' stadium in Seattle. Doesn't require the maintenance that grass does, but isn't as hard on bodies and limbs as conventional artificial turf. There will be a fundraiser for the public to “purchase” sections of turf - $7 per square foot, I think. I'll send out more info as it becomes available. In the meantime, if you're interested in reading some brief history of the old gravel pit, check out this Tri-City Herald story from Oct. 10, 1999.

  Hey everybody,
  I graduated from PHS in 1992 and have been wondering where and when the ten-year reunion will be. If anyone can let me know that would be dandy. My e-mail is: [contact PHS Alumni On-Line for Chris' e-mail address. - ed.]. Thanks!

Sincerely,
