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

From: Walter (Whimpy) Jones (`42)

  I believe the original Trophy was sponsored by two business men that owned the Wright-Younker Eastside Grocery store located across the street from the Whittier elementary school in 1946.

  They were Gene Wright and Harold Younker, two men that were interested in promoting youth sports in the area. As I remember the trophy was to be rotated to the league winning football team for a period of five years and then retired.

  Mr. Younker had by that time become an umpire in the Western International baseball league and later became the Trainer for the San Diego Padres. After retirement from the Padres he was named manager of the Canadian Olympic baseball team and is presently living near Vancouver, BC.

  I do not know the disposition of Mr. Wright or the background of Mr. Howard, but I believe they were partners in the grocery store later on and possibly owned some other local business, and were sponsors of the Wright Howard Trophy.

From: Larry Green (`55)

To Gary Hackeny-'63:
  I am certainly open to correction on the Wright-Yonker (Howard) trophy situation. The people who sponsored the trophy were business people in the area. I can't recall exactly what type of businesses they had, but they were great supporters of high school athletics between Pasco and Kennewick. It is very possible that one of the men dropped out of the trophy for some reason, of which I know not.

From: Don Evans (`60)

To Gary Hackeny:
  The Wright--Howard Trophy was originally the Wright-Yonkers Trophy until Mr. Yonkers either died or left the area. The men were owners of several super markets in the Tri-Cities called Gene AND Jules (these were their first names). I had the good fortune to work for these wonderful gentlemen from age 13 to 27. They were a very positive influence on many people like me and gave much back to the Tri-Cities.

  Good question, Gary, and I hope this clears it up for you.

  Bob Herbig whose sister Sandra Herbig (`60) Tinker works at Sears in the Mall?

To Phyllis Ritterspacher Richardson:
  Are you the great PHS tennis player Pache Ritterspacher ???? class of 1961, who last I heard, was teaching in Yakima????

To Gary Hackeny:
  Weren't Wright-Howard (inre: trophy) the owners of the East Side and West Side Markets in Pasco. Gene Wright & Jules Howard? Gene & Jule's??
OK, so I need to have my memory refreshed, also. Who has the correct answer to Gary's question. Where are the PHS box boys when you need a good answer?

  Sad but true -- it looks like no one is going to step in and save the Moore Mansion. The landscaping has dried up, poplars and weeping willows. The top story is slowly being removed. Do hate to see those lovely pillars demolished.
  I still remember when there was an `Old Folks Home' there (nursing home) in the late 50s. Our Pasco choral group went there to serenade them. I remember when the CBC football team (out of towners attending CBC) lived there as a men's dorm. The Speak Easy was before my Pasco time.

  Hi everyone. I seem to have lost everybody's addresses I was going to keep in touch with. Sorry I missed the reunion but couldn't get off work. It is good to hear old stories about Frank Crothers. His kids like to read them when someone mentions him. They find out all kinds of things their father did. Well, just wanted to tell everyone hello from Texas.

From: Gerald Carr (`63)

  I am sure that Bill Wright (`63) could tell you much more, but this must have been Gene Wright and Jules Howard, owners of Gene and Jules East Side and West Side Markets at which probably several dozen PHS students, including my brother Bob (58') and myself worked at over the years.

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

From: Sally Trelstad Kirkpatrick (`63)

To Gary Hackeny:
  It was the Wright/Howard trophy. It was named for Gene Wright (Bill's Dad) and Jule Howard, who owned the Gene and Jule's markets, which I believe were originally the Eastside and Westside Markets.
