Re: Zoe GOTTHOLD ('20) ~ 9/30/17 Tri-City Herald 

   "Penguin project pays off with D.C. trip for Richland

   "Zoe GOTTHOLD ('20) is fascinated by penguins.

   Since she was 6 years old, the birds have captured her
   attention. She read books, collected information, even
   picked up the bassoon because - at least to her - it
   looks like a penguin.

   So it's no surprise that the science project that
   earned her a trip to Washington, D.C. focuses on the
   dangers that threaten her beloved birds.

   In this case it's from oil trapped in pockets under the
   water's surface, called emulsions. GOTTHOLD learned
   about the phenomenon when reading one of her books
   about penguins, The Great Penguin Rescue: 40,000
   Penguins, a Devastating Oil Spill and the Inspiring
   Story of the World's Largest Animal Rescue.

   Zoe GOTTHOLD , a freshman at Richland High School,
   studied how long it took for oil to break down when it
   is in water. Her science fair project is full of data
   on "Predictive Characteristics of Emulsion Stability."
   She studied how long it took for oil to break down when
   it is in water. GOTTHOLD is one of 30 students across
   the nation competing in the Broadcom MASTERS Science

   All of the finalists receive $500, and the trip to
   Washington, D.C. is paid for. There are several
   different scholarships up for grabs, ranging from
   $2,500 to $25,000.

   GOTTHOLD plans to turn her love of science into a
   career in biomedical engineering."

Woolworths was in downtown Pasco. Our Newberrys was much

Many thanks for the terrazzo explanation of flooring to the
Newberrys entrances, Dennis HAMMER ('64) !That would explain
why it's lasted so long. 

Newberrys' fabric section, that many of you mentioned, was the
destination to which Mrs. LaBorde (Carmichael Home Ec teacher)
dispatched us to buy material etc. for our 9th grade sewing
project. (I think you got a discount if it was for Home Ec
class). My good friend, Marcia DONAHUE Topping ('68) & I went
with one of our mothers. I remember the gray fabric with
flecks of color that we chose. It looked great in the store.
It looked great as Marcia's finished product (blouse). Mine --
not so much. To this day she remains a fine seamstress - & I
remain sewing challenged. 

Dime store in downtown Richland? I remember (very well!)
Thrifty Drugs down there. What was the dimestore?

	{No. I can't find the picture... I remember a 
	picture of a dime store on the NW corner of the 
	Greenway and Lee... Can't remember the name of the
	store... -Maren]

In sad news, so ironic that Tami SCHUCHART Keller's ('68)
birthday was listed as today (9/30). Class of '68 received
notification that Tami died the evening of 9/29. She had been
battling brain cancer a while back, but we/I had seen no
updates recently. Many of us thought she had recovered, but
apparently it came back. Details are sketchy right now. Will
fill you in more when we have them.

To: Ruth PATTY Holesworth ('56)

Re: Carmichael and the Big Pool

Who remembers going to Carmichael and having to walk over to
the Big Pool during P.E. for swimming lessons? It seemed I
always had P.E. first period and it was so cold having to get
in that pool first thing in the morning before it was shut
down for the winter or after it was opened after spring.

But on the bright side, my mom always bought me a season pass
during the summer when I was in grade school and junior high
and I would get to the Big Pool as soon as it opened every
single day, except for Sunday. I had to be home by 5:00 when
Mom got home from work so I would give myself only 10 minutes
to ride my bike as fast as I could home. I didn't take a towel
with me; the girls had to wear swimming caps; and if we got
cold we'd just lay down on the concrete to warm up.

My bicycle had no speeds and I could fix a flat tire in no
time because it seemed I was always running over goat heads.
