Yes! Attending Reunion
Residing In: Paonia, CO
Spouse/Partner: Janene
Occupation: Retired National Consultant and Child Psychologist
Children: Three kids ages 33 to 46, four grandkids

Retired in late 2012. Was privileged to help develop a model of keeping kids with problems out of institutions like Napa State Hospital (wraparound) and the model went world-wide. I live in paradise in western Colorado out in the middle of nowhere. I currently mentor a national anti-poverty program based on my model and grow tomatoes. Developing some nostalgia (smoking MJ again and have a desire to get a VW bug) but not enough to attend a reunion!

School Story:

I remember Clyde Wise, my favorite teacher. I miss smoking weed on the football field. I enjoyed Napa!

Hi Michael, still mad over you beating me for Student Body President at Silverado! Not really. Your maritime work and career sounds great. I am a retired child psychologist, spent my career trying to reform the mental health system in our country, made some progress. Three kids, married forever, grandkids.

Hello Herman! Getting old and nostalgic, never made it to a reunion as I am not much of a reunion guy, but have good memories of friendship with you, Steve, and others. I live in Western Colorado, retired child psychologist, mainly growing tomatoes and doing volunteer work.
