Re: We should have had ten thousand salutations!!!!!!

Dear Maren,

I promise to paint it on one of my walls in my house!!!! I did
not have your birthday written down and every person who ever
reads this column -- every day, and knows how much work you 
put in to it -- should have it memorized!!!! One birthday
salutation appeared!!! Cry SHAME ON US!!!!!!! Thank you for
your dedication, Maren, we love you for it and HAPPY BIRTHDAY

      [Pat, I probably DID get a thousand
      salutations... ya have to count text messages,
      Facebook messages, email, snail mail. telephone
      (cell and land line), and there's always
      person-to-person wishes. I had a wonderful
      day... 72 is a good age to be!! Thank you all. -Maren]

I was also saddened to see that Hal SMITH ('56-RIP) had passed
away. I've known the SMITH family close to 60 years. Hal
graduated with my older brother Scotty ('56). Pook ('63-RIP)
graduated with my younger brother Chuck ('63-RIP). If I am not
mistaken Hal, Sr. was at one time president of the Pony League.

Re: Andrey Sushko ('12HHS) ~ 4/19/17 Tri-City Herald 

      "Hanford High grad is science standout at
      Harvard, earns $90,000 new American fellowship."

      "Andrey Sushko was reading about physics at age 8.

      By age 10, he was showing a knack for
      engineering and electronics, building remote-
      control model boats.

      At 12, 'I was programming things,' he said.

      So it's no surprise that at 23, Sushko - who
      graduated from Hanford High School in Richland
      before going onto Stanford University and now
      Harvard University - is the recipient of a
      prestigious fellowship.

      He's one of 30 young people chosen to be a 2017
      Paul & Daisy  Fellow. He'll receive up to
      $90,000 for his graduate studies."
