Paul,
  I read Mark Schmidt's (PHS 1972) e-mail (6-24-02). I made the correction on my master floppy. I refreshed my "memory" by looking at the 71 and 72 State Tournament BB programs; and sure enough he was right. I can't explain why I put down Kevin instead of Mark. I guess I was having one of my "senior moments."
  I would encourage more of Pasco High School alumni to "dig out" their annuals and complete the team players section of the BB seasons that don't have that information listed. I would be very much interested my self.
  When I attached the BB and football scores (3-16-02) I didn't realize that Adobe would "squish" some of the pages. I guess I didn't have proper tabs on some of the pages. It looks just fine when the individual pages are printed.

From: Julie Hensley Blaswich (`60)

  Since graduating from Pasco High in 1960, I have lived in various parts of the state, mostly west of the mountains. I have four super sons, all grown now and working on grandchildren.
  I spent my working years as a paralegal for Seattle attorneys, court administrator for San Juan County, and finally, came back to Pasco to finish my associate degree in nursing. I've worked in health care for the last twenty years. One position sent me to Anchorage, Alaska for a couple years and I loved it up there.
  Currently, I live with my husband Kess, on Camano Island, WA. We have a small farm with 5 llamas, 2 goats, chickens, 2 dogs and a cat. We love it out here as it is so quiet and peaceful.
  We are both retired and are loving life! I missed our last reunion as it was right after returning from Alaska so would love to hear from folks who knew me.

Hey,
  I am not missing, only enjoying my life with my lovely wife Sherry. We just celebrated our 12th anniversary. We live in Richland off Duportail exit. We have a new home over by the Yakima River. Hot Tub and cold drinks always available. We just finished our garage, Tanning Room and Computer Room are almost done, and that should complete our new construction. My son Jason is in his last year of Residency for Anesthesiology MD in Durham, N.C. We both are licensed pilots, Jason just got his full instrument rating, and I have a extended rating for flying float planes. After High School graduation, a four year Army Stint, a year of it in Korea, apprenticeship in surveying and work at Lower Granite Dam started my construction career and after adding 3 extra units on the Power Houses at Lower Granite, Little Goose, and Lower Monumental Dams, I was moved to Hanford where I was a Superintendent for Survey Field crews. Interesting item of note -- had one of my ex-girlfriends from Richland High on one of the survey crews. Great worker and cute still. 1984 joined the Maintenance group at 100N reactor and after its closure in 1987, moved to the 200 East areas where I am now. Paul Case and I worked at the same job for a couple of years and then we took different jobs. Have been here in the Tri-Cities off and on since 1981, and attended the 25th and 30th class reunions.

Send Sherry and me an e-mail if you want to get together.

Take care,

Jerry Vigue (`67)

From: Steve Layton (`74)

To Tom Hinkle:
  Steve Layton, PHS class of `74 here. Bob and Larry Tobin are my older brothers (their stepdad was my dad, Ray Layton). Bob was oldest. We lived at 1020 Margaret Street (by `58 there were Mom, Dad, and six kids in that dinky house!).
  I'm fuzzy on their dates (young'un that I am); I think Bob was supposed to graduate 58 or 59, but he skipped out to join the Navy. He bailed out of that early, and came back to finish PHS in about 61 or 62. We also ran the Spudnut Shop for a few years then and both Bob and Larry helped out there.
  Larry graduated in 60 or 61, I think. They both quickly got their acts together and became pilots for major airlines, and made out pretty darn well. Bob died suddenly back in 1993, while he was living up in Anchorage. Larry's already been early-retired for a few years, and lives up by Spokane now. He was just in the Tri-Cities last week; he's been flying up and down the west the last couple months, piloting restored B-24 and B-17 bombers.

The rest of his schedule to see him or the planes is:

June:

23-25 - Yakima, WA - Yakima Air Terminal/McCalister Field
Location: TBA

25-27 - Wenatchee, WA - Pangborn Memorial Airport
Location: GA Terminal

27-30 - Olympia, WA - Olympia Airport
Location: Olympic Flight Museum

June-July:

30-3 - Bremerton, WA - Bremerton National Airport
Location: Port of Bremerton

3-7 - Seattle, WA - Boeing Field
