Grandkids were so excited to have a white Christmas at Gramma's house.  Snowball fights and snowmen and frozen fingers and noses were part of the excitement of the day.  It was a nice touch to a wonderful Christmas Day.

No snow in AZ.  Played golf and it was 65.

Pretty much typical Seattle weather here in East Anglia -- rain, wind and low temps, about 37 or 38F. There's snow in other parts of the UK.

How did you end up so far from Burien?  I looked up East Anglia and it looks like a very nice place to live.  Do you have other family there?

Ted Comstock (Briggs-Comstock)

East Anglia is very nice, Linda. It's sort of a rural backwater, and doesn't get many people just passing through, since there's no place to pass to! In the late '60s, I met a woman from England (in Suquamish) who was married to a US Air Force guy. We eventually got together and married in '76. When we retired in 2010, we moved to England.

Highline High is supposed to be demolished after this school year.  I thought the front facade was historically protected.  Does anyone have information about this?

Ken Becker

Dennis, the architects determined it would cost $15million to save the front facade w/o any guarantees it would actually meet code.  The solution is to tear the whole school down & start fresh. The front facade will be replicated. There were a couple of public meetings with renderings of different facades. In the end, the school will look similar from the front.

‚ÄčThis is what the new entrnace will look like.  They plan on using the old bricks and other materials to rebuild the entrance.  The rest of the front facade will be similar to the old. Thanks Ken for the other info.

It won't quite be the same, but then nothing is anymore.  We all can talk about the 'good old days' just like our folks did years ago.....and high school was one of the 'good old days' memories for me.

I hear that Mt. Rainier is planning a 5 year reunion.

Has there been any thought for the same at Highline?

Gary and I have talked about having a 55th reunion.  Gary plans to look into a venue for the reunion in the next couple of months.  Will keep you advised.

As an old veteran, I am sick and tired of Senator McCain.

The "BIG VIET NAM WAR HERO". Bullshit.

There were about 850 POWs. About 1,300 MIA. About 58,000 KIA. About 300,000 wounded. About 2.7 million who served.

Many POWs and veterans hate McCain. He pushed and voted for a bill that sealed (made secret) the records of POWs, MIAs and additional veterans. Why?????

He made it his personal mission to self aggrandize himself throughout his career. He proudly announced that he was a maverick - which means he voted which ever way the political wind was blowing.

As for being a victim? He lived to age 81.

Am I a hero? Absolutely not. I got off easy.

But I will identify two gentleman who were much bigger heros than McCain:

Craig Mulford and Jim Pollard.

As a veteran first of all, why were we in Vietnam? Second, John McCain bombed people from high in the sky then got shot down and held, tortured and humiliated for five and a half years. Still he served his country and did his duty what ever that was. Finally I admire his service way much more than President Bone Spur. PC

Gregg Wilson

I don't question McCain's military service. However, a great many men - as pilots - did far worse than him. There were 861 Navy aircraft shot down, 5,100 helicopters shot down; over 5,000 pilots killed.

He came to national attention because his father was the admiral of Navy forces there. Name another POW who became famous.

Hell, name another veteran who morphed himself into a national icon.

I would like to thank each and every one of our classmates that served our country.  You fellows had to worry about a draft but we girls had no such worry over our heads. There may be differing opinions concerning the war but every one of you are a sincerley appreciated part of our class.

Sue Lowe (Morris)

Thank you Pat and Linda for trying to intercede here. I find it very disturbing to see so many people using the loss of a public figure as a platform for personal agenda. The family and friends of the departed deserve (in Aretha’s words)  RESPECT,

Indeed!

Jeremiah Denton was a POW for 8 years. Shot down over Hanoi in 1965 when he was 41 years old. He was tortured. After release, stayed in the Navy and finally became a Rear Admiral. In 1982, he was elected US Senator from Alabama.

Who knew?

Dee Morrison (Cappelletti)
