"And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye:
for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here:
for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay."

- Matthew 28: 5-6  (KJV) 

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Last year at Easter time, we celebrated the secular holiday together: - broken! - broken!

   (I was horrified to find that the clip art which originally appeared on these pages was not only missing here, but that it had disappeared from its original source as well.  Nothing like a good mystery........)

   This year I thought it would be interesting to examine the religious Easter.

   The music for today's Newsletter was a natural choice for me, as    Eleanor (Buckley Nowitzky - '59 - of NC),    Adrienne (Harty - American School, IL - of NC),    Dale (Harty - American School, IL - '02 - of NC) and    I ('65 - of NC) sang the "Jesus Savior" version shown below with a special Easter choir this morning at church, so this doubles as a news flash.


  From Me ('65) of NC - 04/16/06:

   There are so many different ways in which this most sacred of all Christian holidays, celebrating as it does the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and his victory over the grave, is observed, I thought it might require a complete textbook to do so herein.  I decided instead simply to wish each of you a beautiful, blessed Easter, however you may - or may not - be celebrating it.  We're observing it here together as we try to do all holidays because we are one big family, and we love each other, and that is what families do.  


   A very Happy Birthday to    Monty Phillips ('62) of VA on April 18!  Semper Fi, Marine!

From Bill Wolfley ('70) of VA - 04/16/06:

Hi Carol, just wanted to update you on my birthday since it is coming up pretty soon. It is April 18. I was born in 1951. My wife Peggy's (Cooke Wolfley - '71) birthday is November 23. She was born in 1952. Please add us to the birthday page.

Hope you enjoy your Easter.

God Bless,

   Wow - that's just around the corner, so we'll wish you a happy day now!  I added both you and Peggy to the Birthday Page, and then noticed she wasn't really on the Alumni List, so I added her there as well:

   Thanks, Bill!

04/13/06 - "Happy Easter":

A lady opened her refrigerator and saw a rabbit sitting on one of the shelves.

"What are you doing in there?", she asked.


The rabbit replied:

"This is a Westinghouse, isn't it?",
to which the lady replied


"Well," the rabbit said, "I'm westing."

Sorry... I couldn't stop myself. 
Have a Wonderful Easter...
   I love it!  Thank you, Ladies!
  I didn't "west" much today, but it was a glorious day, nonetheless!

  From Joan Ownby Mathieson ('58) of VA - 04/15/06 - "Dimples (Dinwiddie"):

Got married!  Oh yes, I guess that WAS an option.  Although that wasn't quite on my radar screen at that point in my life.  Well I hope the marriage worked out for her and she has had a happy life. 

   We certainly hope so!  Thanks, Pretty Lady!


  From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 04/15/06 - "Miles":


I was in Forest Lawn on a project today. When I was done, I thought I would go by
  Miles' (Nowitzky - Granby HS - '50) plot and ensure that it was in proper order, which it is.

   Well, David, you Sweetie-Pie, you! How very thoughtful - and how very appropriate for our Easter Newsletter! I'll send that image to    Eleanor .(Buckley Nowitzky - '59 - of NC).  I'm sure she and her children will be delighted to have it.

   Miles' Memorial Newsletter is way past due for some updates.  I was a click away from beginning them when my computer died last May.  This makes a very nice addition to that page:

   I really appreciate your doing that! Thanks so much!


  From Jamey Douglas Bacon ('66) of VA - 04/15/06 - "Happy Easter":

   Thank you so much, Jamey!  This was too cool not to share with everyone!  And Happy Easter to you, too!


  From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 04/15/06 - "ActiveX Controls":

That pesky permission window is the unintended consequence of downloading and installing the latest round of Microsoft security updates, specifically KB912945

Here is what I found after a little searching:

Sounds like you may have installed KB912945 hotfix; see and

Assuming WinXP: Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs (make sure "Show Updates" box is checked) > Is Windows XP Hotfix - KB912945 (or similar) listed here?

Here is what he said:

Open "Control Panel"
Open "Add/Remove Programs"  (Ensure that the "Show Updates" box is checked.
Look for "Security Update for Windows XP (KB912945)
If you find it, click on it and REMOVE IT.

It seems that all the programmers of all your applications will have to create updates of their own to get around this problem. Microsoft was forced to do after losing a patent court case.


   David, you are my hero! Evil updates!!!  Thank you so much!


  From Janice McCain Rose ('65) of VA - 04/15/06 - "Funny Bunny":

  Happy Easter....may your day be filled with love, smiles, and sunshine. Be blessed in the Lord and know that his love surrounds us all.

   OHHHH, Janice, what a perfectly adorable little bunny rabbit this is!  Thank you so much!

   I did have a wonderful Easter Sunday, and I hope you did, too!


  From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 04/15/06 - "Redneck Wedding Reception":

The bride is taking a hit from the tap of the beer keg.

   Oh, yes, of course!  Thank you for shedding some light on that for me, David!  I feel much better now!

  From Jimmy Hines ('64) of Northern VA - 04/15/06:


After I click the back button to return to the newsletter from enlarging a picture, for example, I get the instruction to click on the ActiveX control. I have found that if I just X it out, I am able to continue. When I do what it says, everything stops dead...except for the light on the front of the computer, which is going a mile a minute. Oh, well, what would we do without the occasional challenge? 
  Dave (Spriggs - '64 - of VA), do I need to follow the instruction that you found?

 Chip (Clark - '65 - of Northern VA), like you, I have worked mighty hard for my grey-it's been a life-long process! Yours looks great!

Ummmm...   SLIM!!!  (James Long - '56 - of CO) I hope you decide to continue having birthdays - you'd miss the newsletters, otherwise...

Thanks, Jimmy

   GIGGLES!!!  Thanks, Sweetie!


  From Richard Dawes (NNHS/HHS - '62) of VA - 04/15/06 - "ActiveX controls":


ActiveX controls pop-ups are more than likely the result of a Malware program running on your machine.

It’s time to do a little “Stripping” (the computer kind that is.)

   OHHH, the COMPUTER kind, Ohhhhhh......

I have found that the best and easiest to use is “SmitRem”. You can find it through Google. I believe it is free. Just search on “ActiveX controls pop-ups”

This program will go through and remove all of the temp. files, cash files, most cookies and other bothersome stuff. You will more than likely need to restore your desktop background. I used it to help me restore a drive that the experts at Jlab had said was dead and unusable. If you still are having problems, go to the Kim Komando web page. She has a ton of freeware there that may help.

Best to you
Richard Dawes

   AHA!!!  More solutions!  Thanks, Dicky!


  From Dave Arnold ('65) of VA - 04/15/06 - "Visit":

  Brownie Shaffer Haracivet ('62) was in Newport News today on a visit to see her Mom and get ready to move back to Virginia from the Virgin Islands.  We managed to link up for a visit despite her busy schedule, and I can tell you she's very excited about coming home. 
I've enclosed a picture you may wish to use.  Brownie was driving her '78 300CD and I had our '67 250SL roadster out.  It turned out to be a beautiful day after a morning thunderstorm and it was great to see Brownie again.
Dave Arnold

   OHHHHH, how wonderful!!!  Thanks so much, Dave!

  From Renee Helterbran Benton ('59) of VA - "Newsletters - No Problems!!":

I, too, have AOL and have NOT had any trouble receiving your newsletters.  Just thought you'd like to know not all AOL members are having problems.
Keep up the good work; it's appreciated by all.
Renee Helterbran Benton, '59

   That's wonderful to hear, Renee!  Thank you for letting me know.


  From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 04/15/06 - "Special Thanks.":

Hi, Carol:
Just a quick note to say "Thank You" for updating the profile on Coach Charles Woollum on the website for I am sure you have forty-eleven messages to sort and post in your Newsletter and you gave this priority. It is very much appreciated. Maybe some of the TYPHOON who chase that little white sphere around the beautiful fairways of Williamsburg will invite the Coach to join us.
I was so surprised to find those photos of    Eva (Ellis Madagan - '61 - of FL) and our grandchildren who live in Kansas City. Like most grandparents, we always have photos of our eight grandchildren, soon to be nine. My daughter Sharon told me that her sons Andrew and Mack were so excited to see their photo on the computer screen. You made a couple of boys very happy. Thanks to Karrin Williams (Frankie - Warwick HS - '61) as well.
TYPHOON Regards,
Joe Madagan ('57) of FL

   That's super, Adonis!  Thanks!


   From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 04/15/06 - "Have a glorious Easter!":

Love you lots, Jeanb

   Thank you, Jean - and of course, that's reciprocal!


  From Richard Dawes (NNHS/HHS - '62) of VA - 04/15/06 - "Jesus' Obituary":

  Thank you, Dicky.  That's a very powerful account.  

  From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 01/30/06  - "Why I love the south" (A Series of 27 Images):

If you can stop laughing, you might include one of these each upcoming newsletter .... unless you think it undignified. 


  From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 03/30/06  (#36 in a Series):


You may be running out of "Why I Love The South" images, so you can add these which I received from    Tom Flax ('64 - of VA).




   Another Fat Cat!  I LOVE IT!  WILD GIGGLES!!!

   Thanks so much, David - and Tommy


Redneck CAT

   Y'all take care of each other!  TYPHOONS FOREVER!

                          Love to all, Carol






  Ave Verum Corpus

Text: William Byrd (1543-1623), 1605
Music: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)

Ave ave verum Corpus
natum de Maria Virgine;
vere passum, immolatum
in cruce pro homine:
cujus latus perforatum
fluxit aqua et sanguine:
esto nobis praegustatum
in mortis examine.
in mortis examine.

Jesus, Savior

Text Adapted by Karen Lynn, 1980
Music: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)

Jesus, Savior Son of the Father,
Word made flesh by God's pow'r divine.
Thou hast suffered to redeem us
To crown salvation's grand design.
Sanctify our spirits, O Savior;
We would thy commandments fulfill.
Lord, Redeemer, Atoning One,
Renew our hearts to do thy will,
Renew, renew our hearts to do thy will.
