Rollin' On The River with Kenny Rogers and The First Edition:
Not being very techie, I was very impressed to learn that we could restore and preserve this historic 1970s classic television series by transferring the old 2 inch tape, called quad format to digital format, which improves the picture and sound quality.
If you enjoy the Rock n' Roll and R&B music of the '60s and '70s, you will enjoy the "Remember" DVD. We have received many, many glowing reviews from the entertainment press. Many of these reviews are posted on the http://www.rememberthe70s.com/ web site.
We love Seattle. We actually live in West Seattle about a stone's through from Salty's on Alki restaurant---if you know the area. I usually walk about 5 miles/day along Alki unless it's covered with snow and ice (as it was last year). It's so great to hear from you. I too remember you fom a ton of classes. Geez---you even remember the fetus in Mrs. Kopf's class. Some how I knew that you would be a lawyer some day---you just had a certain something in those days that pre-destined you for law. Wow, one son with a degree in aquatic biology and living in Jakarta no less. What a great city in a great country. I attended Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo for 2.5 years but got my undergraduate degree (in biology) and my MS (in Marine Biology) from Cal State Northridge---so your son and I would speak the same language. I speak pretty fair Palauan (Palau Islands) and Chamorro (Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands) but never spent enough time in Indonesia to get confortable in Bahasa Indonesia. Please do send me your personal email address and we can continue this. Amongst the people I've been in touch in the last few months are Susan Ellis, Gayle Richee, Gwen Mancuso, Alex Krajeski, John Bylo, and Shari Title. Gary Girard, my close friend in high school and my roommate in the dorms at Cal Poly passed away about 5-6 years ago.
I'll be in touch later. Please note that I signed up at this Hollywood High website a number of months ago, but have never used it until I got that earlier message from Bill Holland. I'm also signed up in Facebook (at my daugher/grand-kids insistenct) but I don't really know my way around in Facebook. There are some wife, car, fish pictures I think in my Facebook page, but to me it's earlier to communicate via email.
I was contacted by William (Bill) Holland a few minutes ago. Bill remembered me bringing a California king snake to a science class one day. I hit his "friends" list and there was your name. I remember you from lots of clases. I wound up with a couple degrees in biology and spent most of my career as an environmental consultant working in the Pacific Islands, Asia and Latin America. My new wife, of 5 years, and I live in West Seattle. I chase steelhead, trout and salmon with my fly rod(s) in my spare time. I'm presently working on a proposal for "Marine Ecosystem Management-Indonesia" with a company out of Washington D.C.; I'm also engaged in a couple oil refinery projects (enviromental permitting) for Hydrodec in Canton, OH and Laurel, MS. I recently signed up for Facebook; but I don't know how to play around in Facebook or this HHS web site. You're welcome to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to touch base.

Welcome to Hollywood High School Alumni Association
"Thank you. It's sad they both passed away and in the same year. I wonder were they lived when they became ill? I went to Cheremoya on Franklin Ave. 6th grade. Class of 1963. I posted Paul's obituary on the Facebook page, "You know you…"
A minor addition. Some kids in the Nichols Canyon area went to Valley View Elementary. That could be where Paul and Laura Yates went because their house was near Mulholland. But I truly do not know. "
"Vicky Valentine: I assume Paul Yates was in your class at both Le Conte (1966) and Hollywood (1969). He most likely was in the summer (June graduation) classes. The family lived in Nichols Canyon. Kids there went to Gardner Street Elementary.…"
