WOW! things have changed around here. I sure hope everybody had a wonderful New Year celebration. Nothing too exciting 'cept the plane ride out here, we were only held up for 2hours before we could land. What fun. Ah the rain. It sure has been interesting comeing back to visit. Has anybody driven by Ingraham to see the small changes they've made? The only pictures I have are of my daughter Lakota so if anybody is interested (http://home.earthlink.net/~jbarnes15/index.html). She is so beautiful, of course I am going to be predjudice about that. :)

Hope everyone enjoyed the holidays. Jill...I am sorry I did not reply earlier...need to visit more often. I was buying for the company but just changed jobs this week. I am now working on a project called "Oxygen". The project is getting Nordstrom up on a new system to have perpetual inventory. I will be working with the merchants ( buyers, merchandise mangers) to help them transition into new business practices with the new system. If that makes any sense :) I am just now learning the system so my head is spinning...lots to know. What are you up to? We need to plan a big girls night out soon ( not to leave the boys out but you know how it is)...I vote that Sandra and Kelly coordinate...uhh...could you girls get right on that?

Jen, my sentiments exactly. Kelly and Sandra, get on with it! I have seen lots if Ingy alumni since the reunion seeing as the holidays were around...let's see...Brian Doyle, Aaron Drake, Kleve Hansen, Cory Leigh, Jerry Meyer, Troy Axon, John Brown, Steve Crich, Darrin Kuebler, Ed Kloth, Mark Gray, Steve Gimmestad, Adam Niemeyer, Kosta "Dean" Sebok, Barney Fitts, Jim Sage, Tod Gray, "the girls" of course (Sandra, Heidi, Angie, Heather, Kelly, Jennifer), Jesse Binkley, Karl Keich...can you believe I see all these people? It's like I never left high school! What a name-dropper I am. I know a lot of these people are older or younger than we are, but if you remember them it's kind of fun to hear that they are still around. I also talked to Chris Tift in case anyone remembers him...he lives in St. Thomas now. Lucky duck. That's about all the news I have for now. I'll drop a line when I have more sightings.

Girls.. girls .. girls.. We need to take some responsibility for ourselves... seeing that my title is events specialist I guess I must put my skills to use... let's do a happy hour.. how about this Friday... we can do Cucina on Lake Union or Harborside on the other side of the lake... that way we have parking.. hmmm.. anyone interested?? Or we can have dinner at Lisa or Jen's.. you guuys can cook right? It is scary how many people are still around in good old Seattle... I just love it! Let's hear repsonses for Friday... about 5?

Hey, Jennifer E., I saw you at the reunion, but didn't get much of a chance to talk to you... What are you up to now?

you guys think I'M bad...at least i'm not trying to make plans with people on the damn guestbook!!!! maybe using personal email is now in order. i will say this though: i will be in Portland this weekend and won't be able to meet...so if you REALLY wanted...you could wait until next friday! i also vote for a NON MEATMARKET YUPPIE VENUE!!!! (ooh sorry, that was a little harsh) (but really, now...)

It seems as though the 'guestbook' has evolved into a newsgroup...a good thing. Rudhe...were you thinking the gathering should be at the Tin Hat? Maybe you should give a suggestion instead of throwing down on the planner...she just got the job she needs confidence. Sandra...I thought it was good. I think next Friday sounds better. Amy...I will send you a side email to catch up :)

Actually, this guestbook evolving into a newsgroup was pretty much the idea I had in mind in the first place. I'm glad it's helping folks keep in touch that might otherwise not. If anyone's ever in the Bay Area, let me know...

okay, jen, you're just cranky because...well, you know why! just kidding. you're right, i should've suggested something myself (and i never said the places sandra suggested weren't good ideas, did i?)...i promise to work on it for next week. how about somewhere downtown like O'Hana? i've never been but it's supposed to be phenomenal! and the TIKI atmosphere is an added bonus...hey, what's wrong with the Tin Hat???!?!?! corndogs for a BUCK! : )

Kelly...you know I was giving you shit. Tin hat would be fun...DJ and I drive by and always want to check it out...now that I know about the corndogs...we're there...but...Tiki is good. Either way...whichever is the least smokey...my little guy don't like smoke much. I will announce my news slightly early to everyone...I am going to have a baby!! Due in August. DJ and I are thrilled!!

They are not getting out of hand. They are using this site for exactly what it was created for. What do you care whether they use it or not? At least, have the balls to say who you are, you punk!

okay, TOOO funny! the tone of that email sounded a little like our Sandra Sue, although she's not usually afraid to show herself!!! and thanks for the support, Mr. Cooper... if the UNKNOWN ALUMNI would scroll back a little, they will notice that I too, said it's time for the personal email, not the guestbook. but now, LET ME AT IT!!!!!

MR COOPER, YOU SEEM TO HAVE A LITTLE TOO MUCH AGGRESSION BUILT UP INSIDE. THEY DO HAVE COUNSELORS FOR THAT KIND OF THING...I REALLY THINK YOU NEED SOME HELP. MAYBE IN HIGHSCHOOL YOU DIDN'T HAVE MUCH OF A LIFE...OR MAYBE NOW AS AN ADULT, YOU HAVE A LITTLE TOO MUCH TIME ON YOUR HANDS, OR IS IT THAT YOUR NOT GETTING "ANY".THEY HAVE PLACES AND "PEOPLE" TO SEE ABOUT THAT TOO...........HI KELLY, WHATS SHAKIN' GIRL

Oh My Gosh! I have been away too long form this page...If you all went out already....lets just say that we will have to plan another social hour! Congrats Jen, I am so happy for you!! Next term in massage school I learn about pregnancy massage! Hey Amy, I will write soon...I think I got caught up with the holidays & school!

I have no idea where you imagined all that "UNKNOWN". Just because I was annoyed by you being totally inconsiderate towards others, doesn't mean anyone is aggressive or doesn't have a life. And now, you're doing the very thing you were whining about... using this site. :-)

Charles...Is your work currently somewhere out there to view? I would love to check it out. Let me know. Jill...You did not miss the girls night out...we still need to put one together soon. :)Sandra my friend...where are you?

Charles, you rock! I'm surprised that anyone from Ingraham's class of 1990 would post an anonymous message on this web site. What's that all about? If you can't say who you are then I don't think anyone really wants to hear what you have to say because it's not really relevant to the rest of us. I guess some people haven't grown up since high school...

Yeah, Jen. The Tully's @ 47th & University, 1st & Yesler, 5th & Union (Logan Building), and several more in California. (Tully's will be opening in several other markets this year.) I'll be posting some pictures on my web site when I get off of vacation. I'll let you know. Congrats, again, Jennifer. :-)

Congratulations Jen! I am very glad that this website was made available. I was really looking forward to getting in touch and or hearing about old class mates and things going on back in Seattle. It sounds like you all are having a wonderful time chatting. Sorry to sound like a POOP but, I guess either no body remembers me or I made enemies I don't know about ..it feels kind of shitty to say the least when you check on here and make comments and ask how people are doing and you (me) are the only person out here who doesn't get even a simple "hello". I was really looking forward to getting in touch with people but I guess things haven't really changed since high school or so it would seem. Sorry if I seem a little OFF but wouldn't you if the tables were turned. Makes me kinda glad I didn't run into anybody from high school. I wonder if anybody on this wouldv've said "hi"

Okay that ticks me off. I just wrote to you Susi and it wouldn't take my comment! Bah Humbug! Anyway, I just wated to say to you, don't be offended. A lot of people intend to write to EVERYONE when they write. I do. Unless someone writes something directly to me, then I will answer them. I have not really kept in touch with anyone since the reunion because I am so BUSY working, getting to work, eating and sleeping, then doing it all over again. I think it's the same with a lot of others. Let me know if you (ANY OF YOU!) want to meet a few of us for a drink sometime in Seattle and we will coordinate something.

Hmmm. Seems some of the servers here at Stanford were bogged down earlier today. If you tried to post something and it hasn't appeared, try posting it again. And don't forget that you need to hit "refresh" or "reload" to see your comments after they've been written. Oh, and I say again, "hi" to everyone. If anyone's ever in the Bay Area, look me up...

I whole-heartedly agree, Lisa. Also, I've been talking to Elmer de la Cruz and Jarrod Sakamoto about getting a bunch of people together for drinks. I'll leave a general shout-out here for everyone when we agree on a date. :-)

Hi Susi! or is it still "Legs" : ) I fully remember you and am sorry you missed the reunion! we all had a great time and hope that more people come in FIVE years (that's right, 5! no more waiting 10 years!) Please don't take it personally; what Lisa said is true...it's hard to keep track of what you're replying to since you can't read the original email as you go along...saw the pics of Lakota - she is absolutely beautiful! NOW....back to this UNKNOWN ALUMNI. or not. never mind. except i will say, not much shakin' here UA... who in the hell are you? why the bitter tone and disrespectful remarks?

I want to say THANK-YOU to Lisa and Kelly. I am sure that I came off pretty stong and peeved it's just been so very hard moving across the country from my very close family and friends. As soon as we moved out here my father became very ill, my mothers illness got worse, all the little things that come with leaving a lot of very important people caught up to me and I became very depressed. Lakota has taken it very well but, she is 4 and has her ups and downs about it. There is nothing out here that can be compared to Seattle. Except for the fact that when it rains...Seattle has nothing on Ga for rain. Of course they also have Tornados out here to which I learned about first hand last week. Something new every day. I will be coming back to Seattle in the end of the summer. I again am sorry if I was too angry and I do understand that it does get hard to remember all the people you're suposed to get back to. I feel better. P.S. to Kelly-I have had a few people that recognize me when I visit who bring that up and it just still cracks me up to this day. I don't exactly look like I did in high-school anymore. My husband and daughter decided to come up with nicknames for me, but the "Legs" still stands.

Susi, I don't even know if you remember who I am, but I remember you, and would totally have said 'Hi' to you. :) I've kept in touch with a few people from Ingy, but not to any extent (except for a couple). It seems that after having six kids, you don't find a lot in common with people who don't have any or even just have one or two... :) My idea of a night out is being able to go to Safeway, without any kids. Heaven! No, I joke a lot about them, but I love what I do, and my sweet hubby is always making sure I get my time with my friends and without the kids. In fact, a few months ago, he sent me to Monterey to relax for a week alone. He used some of his vacation to watch the kids for me. :) OK, I'm rambling, I just wanted to tell Susi 'Hi'.

okay...Susi, aren't you going to SHARE the new nicknames??? yes, Jen, it's all about the weeks, whatever. just say 3 and 1/2 months!!! and Amy, I can't believe your tiny little self made 6 kids!!! WOW!! I'll keep my eyes peeled for a multi-taskable babysitter! you must be one amazing mom... so, UNKNOWN AlonelyLUMNI...SPILL IT!!!

"HELLOOOOOOOOOOO EVERYBODY" Amy..I remember you. I remember alot more people than I thought I would. I have to congratulate you on having 6 wonderful kids. I was very unfortunate a long the way to having Lakota and even that was a struggle with her in the hospital all the time. I only pray to God that I can (with a lot of doctors help) have at least one more. They are angels in the biggest sense. Yeah..ask me that when she is a teenager. I have to agree though...it's all about the weeks. When a Dr. talks to you they always use 'weeks' so I had to get prepared somehow. Of course after 36months I finally went to saying 'my child is 3 yrs old'. Kelly...my husband is like no other military man you would ever meet....he is wonderful, but maybe soon I will give up some nicknames because I still laugh thinking of them. I hope you are all in good health and enjoying life, it eventually does get better I have decided to keep the grey hairs, well maybe until the next reunion. he he he. Talk to you all soon.

Lisa.....I was just getting caught up on the messages and noticed the list of all the people you said you have run into. You mentioned Adam Niemeyer. Do you know how to get a hold of him? I would love to talk to him, but, haven't been able to track him down. If you could give me his info, or pass my e-mail address onto him, that would be great. Kelly.......how's it going girl? Haven't talked to you in a while. Things have been kinda hectic and busy, but, that's part of being a grown up. And last but not least, Susi 'Legs'......I put your e-mail address in my directory, Ijust haven't gotten around to sending out any mails. Not sure if you remember me, though. You said you don't look like you did in school, but, that's how I picture you. I saw you daughter's pictures and she is a doll. Send me a mail sometime!! Take care all-----

I have even talked to people that have chacked out the site and not even put their address down. Are they hiding from people, maybe? :)

Charles...After looking at your site I am confused at what you do. :) I thought for some reason you were an artist..as in photographer... when you first wrote about your work. I can't tell from your photos...are you in the business to re-design space and architecture? Enlighten me. PS...hair looks good...that's how I remember it in junior high :)


At Sat Feb 10 15:13:06 2001, Charles Cooper () wrote:

Jennifer... My work is more architecture/interiors than anything else, but I also do Computer Programming and some Computer Networking. Sometimes, all of these things need an Artist's touch, but being an Artist couldn't pay my bills. :-) A lot of people were surprised by the hair... I've had it down to my shoulder or longer for such a long period of time. Everyone at work freaked. Now I get comments on how "date-able" I am now, when I always thought I was "date-able" before. :-)

Hey there everybody! I have been so out of the loop.. looks like I missed out on so much.. I have not been on the site for SOOO long! It is SOO great taht everyone is keeping touch to some degree... this was a GREAT idea Mark!!! Has anyone come to claim themselves as the anonymous alumni??? Suzi... Lakota is absolutely adorable! You mentioned the hoepital.. is she OK? I do not know how to reach Adam Neimeier but his brother is the bartender at Belltown Billiards so you could try to get him that way? So... that night out we all talk about...let's find a place that has plenty of free parking.. that was why i suggested Cucina... the happy hour is great as well... we could try Azteca in Shilshole.. anyone up for getting together?? Am I the only lush around?? :) Funny how everyone is interested but it never happens... lets do it this time! Thursday night? Anyone.. Bueller.. Come on.. Go Rams! :) I am such a cheese ball!! Charles... whawt's up with Tullys.. why do they try to look like Starbucks nad place the stores where there are already a Starbucks? Questions i am sure you have been asked before... what everyone wants to know... BTW... the stores do look great... even if you are a competitor... Jen... how many WEEKS? Amy... 6 kids?? I feel so old!! Anyone up for big summer 29th b-day parties since it's the last one to celebrate in the 20's????

okay, me again...Sandra, so far i have one "hate Azteca" vote. but don't worry, i asked for suggestions. and anyone else, feel free to pipe up! i don't really care, as long as it's not Hooters, although i've never been. what about Beppo's? we could reserve the big booth in the bar so no one feels obligated to eat dinner; just bread and appetizers...


At Tue Feb 13 20:22:22 2001, Charles Cooper () wrote:

Sandra... Actually, that is the plan: to establish a Tully's near as many Starbuck's as possible. As for the looks,... there is only so many ways to design a retail/coffee shop to be efficient. We are trying to go for comfort, but also coffee that's better than yours. :-) Also, say "Hi." to your sister for me.

OH MAN....Ever since I met my husband I pretty much stopped drinking, but reading about going out for drinks is making me thirsty. I actually can't drink anyways..pooh who. I am not sure if I can make a long story short out of this but I will try. In my senior year at Ingy I was diagnosed with Cervical Cancer (not exactly what you want going around school halls) :) I had a lovely surgical procedure (sarcasm) and was told not to even try to have kids.that failed and so did I. I went through emotional hell that I wouldn't wish on the Devil himself after losing the battle with four children.(apparently I was firtile:))When I became pregnant with Lakota I was actually devistated, it was also the same day I had the nerve to tell my ex-husband I was a woman of strength and would no longer tolerate his abuse. Dumb thing to say when you're still in arms length of an a-hole. Needless to say I was in the hospital alot and with extreme high blood pressure (gee i wonder why) Lakota (a tru angel) came into my life 3weeks overdue and with no drugs I was able to get her out on my own at 10lbs 2oz. Dummy me..i guess iswas so excited that it would actually work to full term that i wanted to feel it all. I still may never be able to it again. Lakota was born with a high fever, not breathing well, and other small problems. I became ill while delivering and we wwere both admitted. Lakot developed a form of Apnia to where she would stop breathing weather she was awake or asleep.That went on till she was 3 1/2.there have been other medical problems but I think i will have to write another chapter.

Susi, Your message ended! You said you remembered me, then there was nothing. Leave another message here and I'll get it or send me an e-mail. I'm glad to see everything turned out ikay with your daughter. I'm sorry you had to go through what you did. Hope to hear from you later. To everyone going drinking tonight, have a great time. I wish i could come. By the time I left work in Tacoma, it would probably be 7 by the time I got there. Maybe next time. We are having a 15 year reunion, right? I think that's great!!! :)

Susi, I'm so sorry to hear about all that! But I'm glad everything is going well now. I've been so blessed with health for me and my kids, but I know that it was always a worry until they are laying in my arms. I can't imagine doing it for the fifth time with such a precidence. After all that, it must have made you an exceptionally strong person. What a good example to a small girl like your daughter! (And, by the way, mine were all about eight pounds and I was completely medicated for all but the last. I can't imagine what THAT was like.) :) I hope everything continues to go well!

By the way, oatmeal baths and ice packs seemed to be the favored method of comforting the pox. You ain't been through nothin' 'til you've been through five kids with the pox at the same time!

I've been considering moving to Denver, Portland, or San Diego for a change of pace. Has anyone lived in any of those cities? I've been to Portland, but none of the others. :-)

We are leaning towards Meghan Elise for the name. She is moving around like crazy. Feeling great...though sometimes DJ gets the hormorne wrath of Jen...but he is a good sport about it. Going out today to check out things for the nursery. Hope all is well with everyone. By the way Charles...DJ and I lived in Portland. We lived a year in NW Portland right off of 23rd and then 2 years in NE Portland in the Fremont/Alemeda neighborhood. Both areas were great. Portland is a nice place. We missed the Puget Sound and the lakes we have here in Seattle. Portland has the muddy Willamette River which isn't as much fun. :) Seemed like people had the same vibe as Seattle....Downtown Portland has a lot of homeless youth. You have old growth timber money up in the west hills and then you have a great eclectic scene in the Pearl, Hawthorne and NW areas of town. Fun place to live and get to know. But I prefer Seattle. You probably already knew all that since you have visited...but thought I would throw my 2 cents in.... :)

Missed the renuion because 1) I moved to Arizona in September and 2) Loathed high school. But looking here, I discovered all these interesting, friendly adults with stories to tell. And regardless of our perceptions at the time, we shared an enormous amount, didn't we. (Absurd, lengthy introspection should probably be kept private, I won't subject anyone to much more.)

A brief on my life since HS, in case you're dying for something to read:

- Went to U. Chicago for a year & a half. Got cold. Came home.
- Completed college at Reed in Portland, OR.
- Began working at Seattle Repertory Theatre in marketing
- Finally got a horse, (a lifelong dream). Spent every spare moment riding, training, eventing.
- Jan. 98, met the love of my life, Alan.
- July 98, went to Ireland & got engaged.
- July 99, married him.
- Jan 00, left my beloved Seattle Rep to work as a copy writer for Eddie Bauer. Sage green side-elastic khakis. Say no more.
- Bolted from Eddie Bauer 3 months later, mother died, had what the old folks call a good old fashioned nervo

- Freaked out after mom died, didn't work all summer, then my husband and I simultaneously got jobs at Arizona Theatre Company. He- General Manager Me- PR Director, Copywriter, Marketing girl

And remember: No matter how many cops show up, IT'S GONNA BE ALRIGHT, MA'AN!!!They can't PROVE nothin'! Literally, folks. Now ya know.. Anyhow, recapping the latest, greatest misses from first to last: currently I am living and working in Los Angeles in the shipping industry. It is lucrative but also dangerous and so I try to spend as much time as possible with the fam and relaxing. I moved here from San Diego(my last duty station in the Navy) and started going back to school(CSULA) and getting reaquanted with everyone. Life down here is different. Its not as bad as the news would have you believe, but in certain spots it can seem pretty third worldish, like where my grandparents live. It took me the loss of several friends to realize that it is up to all of us to 'create' the goodness in our world, instead of pessimism, because life is precious but fragile and we get shown way too much bad and not enough 'goot'. Here, like in other parts of the world, tragedies and tensions can run extremely high, but priceless are the moments when I can just sit with my grandparents drinking Starbucks and discuss the 'Old World' or chase down the ice cream truck with the neighborhood kids and practice our English-Spanish. Today we lit fireworks. Well, enough touchy-feely. Today i saw one chase in the morning, and one just now before bed. What a state! Where else ya

Geez, Joey, how many email addresses do you HAVE??? Thanks for the recap - we've all been wondering what in the **** had happened to you! Sounds like you're getting in major touch with your sentimental fuzzy side! By the way Joe, I saw Darrin Kuebler and Steve Gimmestad this weekend...Let them know I got an email from you - they were happily suprised by the news...You absolutely should get in touch with them - send me an email and I'll give you Darrin's address. And helllllooooo Mary! We were all wondering why you didn't show! It was fun and we've all decided that it's too long to wait another 10 years to get together. Hopefully, we can pull together a 15 year reunion...Lisa, is this still up for discussion?

Well...I can see SOME people are having fun on this site...Joey! It's my fault, Folks, I turned him on to the site. No, really, we all missed Joey, didn't we? He was MIA for a while. He's back. I am loving my regular Sunday morning phone calls. You have not lost the sense of humor, that is for sure! Well, I don't want to steal Jen's thunder, but since I know she is much too busy right now to visit the site, I will tell you that she and DJ had a baby girl and they are all three adjusting to all the changes of fmaily life. I haven't seen Meg yet, but I am sure she is cuter than cute. As for myself, I have been enjoying the summer immensely. Visited Eastern Washington a few times and continue to prepare for my trip. I am disappointed that I have not been to ONE concert at the Gorge this year. I tried to find cheap airfare to LA, Joe, but no such luck. Looks like I might be trying to buy Dave Matthews tickets in the Gorge parking lot this weekend. But please say hello to the Long Beach Dub All Stars for me. I love those guys. Recent Ingy sitings...Jay Snodgrass, Mark Gustavson...okay, they may be too old for any of you to remember...I guess that's it besides the usual group I see on a regular basis. As for the "Unknown Alumni", what could be so bad? Various Ingraham alumni have already seen prison time for drug offenses...Cross dressing...I KNOW half of all residents in the U.S. have or currently are smoking pot regularly...(NO, Folks, I am not naming names!!) I just don't get the anonymity. Oh, well. That's about all the news I have. No news is usually good news, so I guess that makes me a pretty happy camper right about now. Later.

It won't be the one with the purple ribbon, I'm sure, but I'm hoping it will just make it on the wall. :) (It's good but it's not PERFECT) Anyway, check it out!

Tessa... I find it amazing that your Dad is going to be marrying his High School sweetheart after all this time. How long was it between the date he found her and they decided to get married? Has anyone from our class married their High School sweetheart? (Pot and alcohol don't count.) Lisa... Every time I have a trip to the Gorge planned with a group of people, the driver or the person that could get "discounted" tickets always flakes-out. Camping after the concert is always entertainment in itself. As for "UNKNOWN": Some people get-off on that type of thing. I usually ignore them. Maybe, they think we wouldn't want to talk to them after we knew who they are? Low self-esteem? A social or legal reason? We can't believe any message that they leave now or, maybe, even after we know who it is. But, even after the initial complaint about the usage of the site, they still use it today. Seperation anxiety? ...How has the Summer been treating everyone? :-)

Charles.....My Dad started talking to her again at the beginning of April. They saw each other for the first time in 30 years this last Memorial Day weekend and he asked her to marry him that same weekend. They just bought a house in Cali, by Disney Land and he's moving on the 5th of Septmeber. They were gonna get married in December in Vegas, but are postponing it until April cuz he doesn't want us to drive through the mountains to Vegas in the snow. We're sad that he's leaving his entire family for one person, but I guess if he's happy...........!!!!! :) Anyways, my summer's going good. I hope yours is too.

But in the unlikely event that that doesn't produce any information for you, please leave me a message on this web site and I will be happy to contact the school for you and see what I can find. Our lawyer (...for the class of 1990 reunion committee, that is...)graduated from Ingraham's first class and he may have some valuable contacts as well. So keep me posted on your progress. Tessa, that really is an amazing story. I guess that should give us all hope for true love (sigh). Charles, we do, in fact, have alumni from the class of 90 that married each other. Alicia White and Peter Olson...okay, that's all I can think of right now, but I am sure there is more. But, you would know that if you had gone to the reunion!!! Just kidding. I like to harass the no shows on a regular basis in the hope of making them feel guilty enough to go to the fifteen. :-)

I got the following letter forwarded to me by Debbie 'Beach' today. I thought I would pass it on to you guys, after the tragic events of yesturday in New York. Subject: A Canadian Newspaper editorial

A TRIBUTE TO THE UNITED STATES This, from a Canadian newspaper, is worth sharing. America: The Good Neighbor. Widespread but only partial news coverage was given recently to a remarkable editorial broadcast from Toronto by Gordon Sinclair, a Canadian television commentator. What follows is the full text of his trenchant remarks as printed in the Congressional Record:

"This Canadian thinks it is time to speak up for the Americans as the most generous and possibly the least appreciated people on all the earth.

Germany, Japan and, to a lesser extent, Britain and Italy were lifted out of the debris of war by the Americans who poured in billions of dollars and forgave other billions in debts. None of these countries is today paying even the interest on its remaining debts to the United States.

When France was in danger of collapsing in 1956, it was the Americans who propped it up, and their reward was to be insulted and swindled on the streets of Paris. I was there. I saw it. When earthquakes hit distant cities, it is the United States that hurries in to help. This spring, 59 American communities were flattened by tornadoes. Nobody helped.

The Marshall Plan and the Truman Policy pumped billions of dollars! into discouraged countries. Now newspapers in those countries are writing about the decadent, warmongering Americans.

I'd like to see just one of those countries that is gloating over the erosion of the United States dollar build its own airplane. Does any other country in the world have a plane to equal the Boeing Jumbo Jet, the Lockheed Tri-Star, or the Douglas DC10? International lines except Russia fly American Planes? Why does no other land on earth even consider putting a man or woman on the moon? You talk about Japanese technocracy, and you get radios. You talk about German technocracy, and you get automobiles.

You talk about American technocracy, and you find men on the moon -! not once, but several times -and safely home again.

You talk about scandals, and the Americans put theirs right in the store window for everybody to look at. Even their draft-dodgers are not pursued and hounded. They are here on our streets, and most of them, unless they are breaking Canadian laws, are getting American dollars from ma and pa at home to spend here.

When the railways of France, Germany and India were breaking down through age, it was the Americans who rebuilt them. When the Pennsylvania Railroad and the New York Central went broke, nobody loaned them an old caboose. Both are still broke.

I can name you 5000 times when the Americans raced to the help of other people in trouble. Can you name me even one time when someone else raced to the Americans in trouble? I don't think there was outside help even during the San Francisco earthquake.

Our neighbors have faced it alone, and I'm one Canadian who is damned tired of hearing them get kicked around. They will come out of this thing with their flag high. And when they do, they are entitled to thumb their nose at the lands that are gloating over their present troubles. I hope Canada is not one of those."

Stand proud, America!

Well, another summer come and gone...at least for those of us in Seattle. I, for one, have enjoyed it immensely although I didn't go camping even ONCE! Hmmmph! Anyway, I have seem some alumni lately that were a big surprise to me...new, recent sitings...Lynton Hyde, Brian Hyder, Charles Turner, Victoria Suzuki, Pat Allen, Angela Johnson (and Wayne, too!), Melinda, Brenda and Stephanie Wade, Kerri Anderson, Meghan Barber, Steve Lord...maybe a few others that I can't think of right now. Sandra, Kelly, Lorrie, Jennifer, Bryce and myself got together for mimosas last Saturday morning and attended the IHS Homecoming and tour of the new Northwest Sports Complex. Boy, is it nice! The tennis courts, football field, baseball diamond(s, soccer field and track are accompanied by a restroom and bleachers as well as a digital scoreboard. If at all possible you should check it out. We walked around the old alma mater and ran into a few teachers from back in the day. There was also an alumni booth which we all added our names to. You can add your name to it by emailing the school. Just tell them to add you to the alumni list and be sure to tell them what year you graduated. Or, if you get the chance, stop by the school and check it out. The school looks basically the same, but hopefully the next 7 million will go to improving that old eye sore they call Ingraham!

hello, mi querida familia... today i was actually scared to visit this site. was it just a month ago my life was "normal". my grandmother's in new york visiting my cousin. she just had her first baby boy, Johnny jr. her husband worked in tower #2. my fingers are shaking, the way they do when i recall a horror i survived, but today im thinking of what john told me he saw as he stepped off the train that morning from brooklyn to manhattan. im thinking, was it just ten years ago we were still young, and some of us went off to fight for what this country believes in and stands for and against another tyrant, by another name? now, ten years later, while thinking i am 'over here' and they are 'over there', i've been effected, indeed traumatized, yet again. only this time i was not 'away'. youthful exhuberance turned to shame in the blink of an eye, a sunny morning of waking up turned dark and full of dread. "will my friends that are still 'in' have to go and fight?" was the first thing on my mind, followed closely by " i wonder where's johnny and marisol at?". "will l.a. be next?" you hear that down here now. as if it wasn't already bad enough. the emmys, grammys, concerts, amusement parks, cancelled. and when i go to the airport monday i'll go through at least two checkpoints and then i will get at least two seperate patdowns and i will still get at least a couple of curious glances before i get to pick up my family, but that's okay. lax reminds me of visiting Tel Aviv now. but that's okay. it's important, just like it was then, now more than ever for all of us to do what we can to support each other! it does matter. it matters to our boys on the ground in manhattan! it matters to our boys on the ground in afghanistan! IT MATTERS. even if all you do is wave a flag, somewhere there's a boy or girl who's daddy is 'over there', seeing and knowing that that - freedom - is worth fighting for and worth protecting and they and us are a part of that, whether we want to be or not sometimes. now i work in the busiest port in the country(ilwu.com) and in the last two weeks the cargo volume has doubled! instead of delivering bombs and bullets, now i just load them onto things, but i KNOW where they are destined for. life's ironic sometime. but if i had to go and fight, like i know some people do, it means the world to know your friends around the world are thinking about you. so i write messages on them in chalk. in my current job, we lose(that means dead) at least a couple of persons EVERY MONTH(check out the crazy pics on the website). and that's just delivering the goods, not handling them. but we do it because we know -NOT THINK, KNOW- that job is important. just like the situation the whole country is in right now. someone HAS to do it. if not us, who? goodnite, all. take pride in the fact that we have the best operators in the world who'll get the job done using the fewest moves(as in ordnance) needed! and as always, GOD BLESS AMERICA!!! (what we need next is a war on pollution; over 50 beach closures this summer!!!!and that was just local! i'm outta here. as always, drinks are on me(airfare and shows are xtra cheap now, call in advance for tix, and no 'loud colors':) Peace from ground zero, the City of LostAngels....joseph(the barbarian;aka,crazyjoey; cj; jb; jc; jp; jay-re; johnny hustle; johnny quest;johnny dangerously; johnny fleiss; johnny holmes; johnny blazem; HK; and OGWM...PEACE...)

Okay, so it only took me a year to check this out. :) Thanks for doing this, Branom. I can't believe we're only 9 years away from the next one! (at least you'll be 30 before I will...)

Holy Shit! I had no clue this was such a big site. :) SARAH! My jaw dropped on the floor when I saw your posting. I wasn't ignoring you. :) I think about you all the time, too. I am *so* sorry about your mother. We should throw ourselves a big ass missing-my-mom pity party. ;) It'll be 6 years on Tuesday (Nov. 6). Can't believe it's been that long. Anyway, I'd love to hear from people.

Amy-Jo: been meaning to write. Write to me, 'kay?

Take care, all!

Mark, thanks ever so much. I didn't get to say hi to you at the reunion. My old junior high buddy! O.K. So it's been a year for me also. Even though I was at the reunion I still couldn't find the time to visit this site. The pictures are great! It was truly a fun time. Even though I didn't get to see my best buddy Mary Murray. I am looking for you and just sent you an email. Call me. I miss you! I don't get to see many people since I live in the south end of King County, never thought I would move down here, but here I am. Thanks Sandra for the compliment, you looked as glowing as ever! I vote for the 15 year reunion. With the events of 9-11-01, I hope that all of us will truly come to value the things that may not have mattered much before. Especially friends and family! I have certainly learned a great deal since I lost my half-brother in the trajedy. He worked in the WTC and was able to get out but later passed in an area hospital. It has been a horrific time in my life, but I still feel his presence near me on a daily basis. I wish all of you the best since we never know when it will be our last day with each other. And if there are any get togethers soon let me know, I would love to come.

Everybody be sure to wish Branom a HAPPY 30TH BIRTHDAY today! Can you believe we're that old? Remember when we couldn't wait to turn 16 then 18 then 21? How did we get here so fast? :o)

Beautifully put Joseph! I couldn't have said it better. I am really very sorry to hear about your half-brother Karey. What a tragic event. I still can hardly believe that what I witnessed on TV that day was real. Anyway, we do need to stand behind our president and our government. They are doing the right thing and I believe they are doing a fantastic job. It worries me that we may lose support for the cause after Afghanistan is said and done with, both domestically and internationally. I am trying to be proactive and emailing the president and other people who have affected me during this conflict...politicians, anyone who ignites my interest in one way or another. I encourage everyone to do the same. Let's see now...I've mostly seen the same old crew lately. I have managed to spend some time with Jen and little baby Meg, though. She is a cutie pie! Cindy Hang emailed me pictures of her new baby, Keelan. I did see Troy Axon last weekend and he told me that Cindy Yoshihara just had a baby. Congrats Cindy! Other than those tidbits I don't think there is anything new to report in the alumni department. Well, happy holidays to everyone! I hope your Thanksgiving was better than mine! Until next time!

I actually can't drink anyways..pooh who. I am not sure if I can make a long story short out of this but I will try. In my senior year at Ingy I was diagnosed with Cervical Cancer (not exactly what you want going around school halls) :) I had a lovely surgical procedure (sarcasm) and was told not to even try to have kids.that failed and so did I. I went through emotional hell that I wouldn't wish on the Devil himself after losing the battle with four children.(apparently I was firtile:))When I became pregnant with Lakota I was actually devistated, it was also the same day I had the nerve to tell my ex-husband I was a woman of strength and would no longer tolerate his abuse. Dumb thing to say when you're still in arms length of an a-hole. Needless to say I was in the hospital alot and with extreme high blood pressure (gee i wonder why) Lakota (a tru angel) came into my life 3weeks overdue and with no drugs I was able to get her out on my own at 10lbs 2oz. Dummy me..i guess iswas so excited that it would actually work to full term that i wanted to feel it all. I still may never be able to it again. Lakota was born with a high fever, not breathing well, and other small problems. I became ill while delivering and we wwere both admitted. Lakot developed a form of Apnia to where she would stop breathing weather she was awake or asleep.That went on till she was 3 1/2.there have been other medical problems but I think i will have to write another chapter. Needles to say i was divorced before she came and John, my wonderful husband came into my life knowing the whole thing up front. I swear I have two angels in my life. I will be coming back to Sattle this summer and definately want to get together with everybody. Yes Tessa I remember you.
