Jefferson Davis' 199th Birthday

“Neither current events nor history show that the majority rule,
or ever did rule.”

- Jefferson Davis
(3 June 1808 - 6 Dec 1889)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Did you remember the significance of today's date?  Of course you did!  


  From Me ('65) of NC - 05/29/07 - "How I Spent My Tuesday Morning":

   Sustaining Underwriters and Emergency Responders - THIS IS THE MORE COMPLETE LIST!

   Obviously, this page is in the process of being seriously and completely revamped, almost on a daily basis.  As I am not sure which of y'all wished to remain anonymous, if you have contributed to either of these funds, please drop me a line (as some of y'all have) and let me know your wishes. I'll then replace each "Anonymous" listing with your name or other wording. Thanks so much!


   Happy Birthday today to     Gail Kiger Bonsey (Ferguson HS - '73) of OR!

    Many Happy Returns to One and All!

  From Sandra Canepa ('56) of VA - 05/31/07 AND    From Edna Whitcomb Harrison of VA - 06/01/07 - "Buckroe Update & Considered Lawsuit":

It is only fair to give those of you who have  supported our battle to save Buckroe's Lots B a final update in perhaps this last note on the subject from me to you..
As shown at, Hampton City Council chose Option B for Lots B even though Option B is not what professionals, highly respected businessmen, and thousands of citizens,  both in and outside of Hampton,  wanted or requested of Council. 

To begin with, Option B does not provide one ample public off-street parking lot for Hampton's public beach in Buckroe. If any of you had the opportunity to visit Buckroe's public beach over this Memorial Day you would have seen all the on-street parking spaces taken as well as every one of Lots B filled with parked cars, the very lots that Option B plans to use for upscale private homes. How dumb is that considering the proven need throughout the world for large public parking lots for any public beach, particularly one as popular as Buckroe's?

On May 23, 2007, Hampton City Council approved rezoning Lots B.  The rezoning is required under Option B in order for the city to move ahead with their plans to sell Lots B to developers.    The rezoning is not necessary for Lots B to be developed into a world-class bay front city park.  
Hampton City Council approved the illegal rezoning promoted by the Hampton Planning Department even after it was pointed out to Council by concerned citizens prior to the vote that the rezoning of Lots B is in direct violation of the last paragraph in Article XII, Sec 17.3-88 of the Hampton City Code
 which states: "....Amending the special zoning designation of the subject property should be considered only after all efforts to effect a positive change in the community's housing stock conditions prove to be futile and are exhausted."
We all know Hampton has never ever put any efforts into trying to upgrade or effect a positive change in Buckroe's housing stock, not even housing stock the city itself owns in Buckroe.   (See Robert Montgomery's Letter to the Editor, May 23, 2007, under In the News,   If Mr. Montgomery's letter is not on the website yet, it will be shortly)
The Green Space Ladies felt this violation of the city code was reason enough to investigate the possibility of hiring an attorney or law firm that would be interested in filing a lawsuit to stop or delay the rezoning of Lots B until the City of Hampton took all efforts possible, prior to any rezoning of Lots B,   to effect a positive change in the existing Buckroe community's housing stock as called for by the Hampton City Code.
We located Strother Law Firm in Richmond, Virginia, which deals in land use and zoning issues and which has prevailed in several cases throughout Virginia where they went up against county officials on behalf of private citizens.   Additional information on the Strother Law Firm can be found at .
A conference conversation with Mr. Strother "kinda" confirmed our feeling that Strother Law was the firm we would need to try and stop or delay the rezoning of Lots B until Hampton helped the Buckroe community residents upgrade their housing stock just as Hampton has done for Pasture Point residents and is doing for residents in the Sussex area of Hampton.  However, it was only after we spoke with a couple of references given by Mr. Strother that we knew Strother Law was the firm we would need for the case.
Unfortunately, however, even though we ladies could come up with the initial $3,000 legal retainer fee and were somewhat willing to take on the  fund-raising drives that would be necesssary for follow-on legal fees and costs, one gentleman with whom we spoke advised  we should not even consider hiring the law firm unless we had ten more individuals willing to commit $1,000 each toward the initial hiring of the firm.
We have tossed all of this information around and around over the last couple of days......and, sadly, we have had to make the decision,  considering the now suggested $10,000 over our $3,000,  plus the time and energy that would be required on our part for obtaining the 501c(3) not-for-profit status and  the necessary fund-raising efforts, that we really are not in a position to hire Strother Law and take on such a financial commitment.    
We plan to let Mr. Strother know of our decision shortly.  In the interim we keep hoping for a big lottery win soon because any lawsuit must be filed within 30 days from May 23, the day Council violated the Hampton City Code by approving the rezoning of Lots B. 
Please know it was without any regrets whatsoever that we threw ourselves into the Buckroe Lots B issue over two years ago at the expense of many things, not the least of which has been family and friends; but it is scary to think we would have to devote as much time or more to fundraising in the coming months no matter how much we want to continue the battle for Lots B to remain for the public's continued use, fun and relaxation.  The intent for this land in the Hampton City Code even states the property is to be publicly held and utilized as open area in perpetuity.
I am only sorry that because of lack of funds the issue will not get into a court of law.  I say this because I personally do not believe any one group in Hampton, like ourselves, will ever again have as much black and white proof and visual evidence on any issue like we have compiled on this issue and which shows the Hampton Planning Department for what it is, i.e., a corrupt group of city employees who fought anything but a fair and honest fight in order to "steal" special and unique bay front public property for no earthly good reason other than to sell it for private homes. . 
The Planning Department's influence on City Council to rezone this property in violation of the City Code is their last ugly move, and the only ugly trick that possibly would have stood up in a court of law.    All their other lies, misinformation, and dirty tricks pulled (and we have evidence of 11 big ones) in order to reach their predetermined goal to sell our land to developers would have been  brought out in court as proof they stopped at nothing to "rob" that land from Hampton residents in an unfair fight......and it makes me absolutely sick to think they are getting away with it.
However, with everyone's help and support we did manage to save one of the three Lots B even if those sections we saved are going to be surrounded by the two new residential streets called for under Option B.
I'll close now with great thanks and appreciation to each of you for hanging in there with us and for your support over the last two years.
Please feel free to share this email with anyone you think may be interested in this update.
Sincerely, Sandra Canepa

   After all your exalted efforts for so long to preserve this for us all, I can scarcely imagine your heartbreak and frustration at this point, Sandra!

   I do hope you know and can feel the love, appreciation, and admiration we all have for you, and for the incredible fight you and your committee members have fought against such odds.

  From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 06/01/07 - "~*~ All Things Beautiful ~*~":

Have a wonderful weekend & restful/spiritual Sabbath day,
His version of the song is sooooo beautiful! What a legacy he left, for all of us to enjoy!
Here is a separate version that shows him performing, but not the completed version. It looks as
though it's a celebration, in honor of his parting.
He has the most beautiful smile, as if his whole face lights up.
Israel Kamakawiwo'ole, Musician

   Oh, thank you, Shari! Israel is - was - one of my favorite performers!  My sons introduced him to me several years ago; I have that song on my computer playlist.

  I hope y'all enjoy this, too!

  From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 06/01/07 - "Let's All Pray":
How sad for this couple. Breaks my heart thinking of their loss.   

   Thanks again, Shari!

  From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 05/01/07 - "This sounds like a good idea":  

LET'S DO IT!!!!!


You may have heard in the news that the Post Office has  been forced to take down small posters that say


The law, they say, is being violated.

Anyway, I heard proposed on a radio station show, that we should all write "IN GOD WE TRUST" on the back of all our mail...after all, that is our national motto, and it's on all the money we use to buy those stamps. I think it is a wonderful idea.

We must take back our nation from all the people who
think that anything that offends them should be removed.

If you like this idea, please pass it on.

It has been reported that 86% of Americans believe in God. Therefore, I have a very hard time understanding why there is such a mess about having "In God WeTrust" on our money and having God in the pledge of Allegiance.

Could it be that WE just need to take action and tell the 14% to sit down and shut up?

   Thank you, Joyce!  I am in total agreement with you!

  From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 05/01/07 - "Those Born 1930-1979":

Those Born 1930-1979


TO ALL THE KIDS WHO SURVIVED the 1930's, 40's, 50's, 60's and 70's!!


First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they were pregnant.

They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can, and didn't get tested for diabetes.

Then after that trauma, we were put to sleep on our tummies in baby cribs covered with bright colored lead-based paints.

We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets and when we rode our bikes, we had no helmets, not to mention, the risks we took hitchhiking.

As infants & children, we would ride in cars with no car seats, booster seats, seat belts or air bags.

Riding in the back of a pick up on a warm day was always a special treat.

We drank water from the garden hose and NOT from a bottle.

We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle and
NO ONE actually died from this.

We ate cupcakes, white bread and real butter and drank Kool-Aid made with sugar, but we weren't overweight because, WE WERE ALWAYS OUTSIDE PLAYING!

We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on.

No one was able to reach us all day. And we were O.K.

We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps and then ride down the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes. After running into the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem.

We did not have Playstations, Nintendo's, X-boxes, no video games at all, no 150 channels on cable, no video movies or DVD's, no surround-sound or CD's, no cell phones, no personal computer! s, no Internet or chat rooms.......
WE HAD FRIENDS and we went outside and found them!

We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth and there were no lawsuits from these accidents.

We ate worms and mud pies made from dirt, and the worms did not live in us forever.

We were given BB guns for our 10th birthdays, made up games with sticks and tennis balls and, although we were told it would happen, we did not put out very many eyes.

We rode bikes or walked to a friend's house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just walked in and talked to them!

Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who didn't had to learn to deal with disappointment. Imagine that!!

The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of. They actually sided with the law!

These generations have produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers and inventors ever!

The past 50 years have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas. We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned HOW TO DEAL WITH IT ALL!

If  YOU are one of them, CONGRATULATIONS!

You might want to share this with others who have had the luck to grow up as kids, before the lawyers and the government regulated so much of our lives for our own good.
While you are at it, tell it to your kids so they will know how brave (and lucky) their parents were.

Kind of makes you want to run through the house with scissors, doesn't it?!

The quote of the month is by Jay Leno:
"With hurricanes, tornados, fires out of control, mud slides, flooding, severe thunderstorms tearing up the country from one end to another, and with the threat of bird flu and terrorist attacks, are we sure this is a good time to take God out of the Pledge of Allegiance?"

Good Question!!  I don't think so!!!!!

   It's really quite amazing, isn't it, Joyce?!? GIGGLES!!! Thanks again, Lady!

From Patty Dunn of NC - 06/01/07 - "NNHS 65 website":

Hi Carol
I stumbled upon this website while looking for information on some old friends from Newport News. 
When I was a kid I spent the summers at my grandmother's house on 48th Street.  Those were some of my best childhood memories!  During that time I made some very close friends whom I have thought about a lot during the years.
I am trying to find info on Bobby Stanfield who is probably about 56 years old now.  He went to NN High.  Also, Roxy McCall, about the same age. 
Bobby had two brothers Larry and Danny, and a sister, Bonnie, and I can't remember the others names.
Do you by any chance know any of these folks?  Particularly Bobby.  I guess he was my first "love".  I was about 11 he was 13.
Love the website.  My mother graduated from NNH around 1943.  I can't wait to show her the website.
Thanks Carol.  Any info will be appreciated!
Patty in NC

There is no greater therapy for the inside of a person than the outside of a horse...

   Hi, Patty!  It's so exciting hearing from you!  We're in the business of helping people find each other again, so I hope someone will have some information for you.

   I don't personally know any of the people you mentioned, but I suspect that's because they're all so much younger than I.  I just spotted a Nancy Stanfield ('68) in the '67 yearbook (which is not indexed).  She's the only Stanfield listed in the '66 yearbook also.

   We'll see what the others can tell you, so hang in there!

  From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 06/02/07 - "NNHS 65 website and the Stanfield's":

Thanks.  I didn't know about the site.  I think Bonnie Stanfield was his sister so I am going to contact her.
Don't you just love the internet!

   Oh, yes, ma'am, I do indeed!

  From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 06/02/07 - "The Stanfield's and the McCall's":

Wellll .... it seems that my puter is temporarily ill. This is originating from a friend's house in P-Town.....

I went to the Hilton Library and found Hills 1964 listings for McCalls and Stanfields on the 200 block of 48th Street. The McCall listing was 223-48th.  On the way home, I swung by 48th, knowing that all had been leveled years ago. But ..... the lone remaining home is 223, so i snapped some images.

However, until my puter gets well, I cannot process them.

Bummer, huh?


   ARGHH!!!  David, I think the thought of your computer behaving badly frightens me almost as much as if my own were having similar problems!

   I was delighted and relieved to learn subsequently that your computer issues had been resolved!

  From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL -  06/01/07 - "Sea of Love":

Dear Carol:
..... Keep a bottle of water by your PC, Kid.

   Through concentrated effort, I'm doing much better at that now, Joe!  Thanks, Sweet Adonis - for everything!

  From Jennie Sheppard ('62) of NC - 06/02/07 - "Sea of Love": 

Dear Carol,
I'm so sorry you haven't been feeling well.....I have to really concentrate myself to be sure I drink enough water.
I am very excited to share my good news with you and the class of 1962.   My biography is included in the 26th Edition of Who's Who of American Women, 2007.  I still have no clue as to who it was that nominated me but I really appreciate their doing it.  I'm listed with more than 40,000 women including Katie Couric, Barbara Bush, and others. 
Hope you are feeling better.

   WOWZERONI-RINI-ROONI!!!  Thanks for sharing this with us, Jennie - and CONGRATULATIONS!

  From Jennie Sheppard ('62) of NC - 06/02/07 - "Class of 1962 Reunion":

Dear Carol,

I noticed on the site the dates given for the Class of 1962 Reunion are Oct 12-13, 2007 but the letter I got says reunion date is Sep 21 and 22 of 2007. Please clarify.



   The Class of 1962 Reunion has indeed been postponed for a month due to some unavoidable circumstance:

   I'm sure that    Brenda Amos Williams ('62 - of VA) can answer your questions concerning this.

 Thanks for double checking, Jennie!

  From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL -  06/02/06 - "Sea of Love Newsletter":

Hi, Carol:
Glad to see "The City of New Orleans" stirred some interest in music among the TYPHOON Nation!!!

Of course, everyone knows Willie Nelson performed a great rendition of this song! It certainly is one of my favorites. And Arlo Guthrie singing this song is on my iPod as well.

  David Whitley ('67) of VA AKA "Gorgeous" (to a certain web mistress and other "Ms. TYPHOON") gave us a good tip on some more music to enlighten our lives with the reminder that this train song was written by Steve Goodman. A quick check of iTunes where he is the composer and performer gave me a lot of laughs this morning. Such songs as "Vegamatic", "Go Cubs Go", and "A Dying Cub Fan's Last Request" are hilarious.
I just love it when your subscribers participate and contribute, and this was a good morning for it!
TYPHOON Regards,
Joe Madagan ('57) of FL

   It is great fun, Joe, and I believe we have more forthcoming on this subject, so stay tuned....

   And, oh, it's not MY fault that David is so gorgeous!  WILD GIGGLES!!!

   Thanks again, Adonis!

  From Renee Helterbran Benton ('59) of VA - 06/02/07 - "Wrong Funeral (wonderful story)":

Good evening.  This will make you smile.  Enjoy your day!

Consumed by my loss, I didn't notice the hardness of the pew where I sat. I was at the funeral of my dearest friend -- my mother. She finally had lost her long battle with cancer. The hurt was so intense; I found it hard to breathe at times. Always supportive, Mother clapped loudest at my school plays, held a box of tissues while listening to my first heartbreak, comforted me at my father's death, encouraged me in college, and prayed for me my entire life.

When mother's illness was diagnosed, my sister had a new baby and my brother had recently married his childhood sweetheart, so it fell on me, the 27-year-old middle child without entanglements, to take care of her. I counted it an honor. "What now, Lord?" I asked sitti ng in church. My life stretched out before me as an empty abyss. My brother sat stoically with his face toward the cross while clutching his wife's hand. My sister sat slumped against her husband's shoulder, his arms around her as she cradled their child. All so deeply grieving, no one noticed I sat alone.

My place had been with our mother, preparing her meals, helping her walk, taking her to the doctor, seeing to her medication, reading the Bible together. Now she was with the Lord. My work was finished, and I was alone. I heard a door open and slam shut at the back of the church. Quick footsteps hurried along the carpeted floor. An exasperated young man looked around briefly and then sat next to me. He folded his hands and placed them on his lap. His eyes were brimming with tears. He began to sniffle. "I'm late," he explained, though no explanation was necessary.

After several eulogies, he leaned over and commented, "Why do they keep calling Mary by the name of 'Mar garet?'"

"Because that was her name, Margaret. Never Mary. No one called her 'Mary,'" I whispered. I wondered why this person couldn't have sat on the other side of the church He interrupted my grieving with his tears and fidgeting. Who was this stranger anyway?

"No, that isn't correct," he insisted, as several people glanced over at us whispering, "Her name is Mary, Mary Peters."

"That isn't who this is."
"Isn't this the Lutheran church?"
"No, the Lutheran church is across the street."
"I believe you're at the wrong funeral, Sir."

The solemnness of the occasion mixed with the realization of the man's mistake bubbled up inside me and came out as laughter. I cupped my hands over my face, hoping it would be interpreted as sobs.

The creaking pew gave me away. Sharp looks from other mourners only made the situation seem more hilarious.

I peeked at the bewildered, misguided man seated beside me. He was laughing, too, as he glan ced around, deciding it was too late for an uneventful exit. I imagined Mother laughing.

At the final "Amen," we darted out a door and into the parking lot. "I do believe we'll be the talk of the town," he smiled. He said his name was Rick and since he had missed his aunt's funeral, asked me out for a cup of coffee.

That afternoon began a lifelong journey for me with this man who attended the wrong funeral, but was in the right place. A year after our meeting, we were married at a country church where he was the assistant pastor. This time we both arrived at the same church, right on time.

In my time of sorrow, God gave me laughter. In place of loneliness, God gave me love. This past June we celebrated our twenty-second wedding anniversary. Whenever anyone asks us how we met, Rick tells them, "Her mother and my Aunt Mary introduced us, and it's truly a match made in heaven."

   I do love this story, Renee - for so many reasons! Thanks for sharing it with us!

  From Butch Ragland ('63) of CO - 06/02/07 - "Hi Carol":

Hi Carol!

Sounds like things are doing much better now. Just wanted to let your know it is OK to list my name under the donors from the class of 63, maybe it will spur a few more '63 classmates to contribute; I forgot to tell you in my letter. Also, if you show Military Affiliation you can show me as USMC Vietnam Era Vet.

Will send another donation to the continued support fund in a couple weeks when I finish with a little trip I am planning.

God Bless,

Butch Ragland, NNHS '63 formerly known as Henry!!!

   Thank you so much, Butch! I really do appreciate it - and I now have your name so listed:

   Sustaining Underwriters and Emergency Responders

   And you've raised a point I've been meaning to address for some time now.

   I first started adding the military logos before each name last Memorial Day:

   It looked so cool and paid such a particular homage, that I wondered why I had never done such a thing before.  Several months later, I remembered.  It relies completely on my so-called memory - and we all know how bad that is.

   I wonder just how often I am offending someone by failing to post that logo when it belongs there.  The very thought of such a glaring and disrespectful omission gives me the shivers!

   The only protection I have against such a thing is if y'all give me permission to post you on the Famous Military pages:

   Then I can double-check it each time, until I've truly learned it past all forgetting.  And oh - looky, Butch -you're not listed here:

   So this would be yet another plea to all of y'all for submissions and inclusions on these pages.  If you - or your children, siblings, parents, or grandparents - served in the Armed Forces of our nation, please consider listing them with us.  All we need is a full name, a date and place of birth (and of death, if applicable), and any other educational or occupational information you wish to include.

   Images are an exciting bonus.  Marines can have any and all photos available; those in the other branches of service are restricted to pictures in uniform.  Why?  Because I made the silly rule, and I'm a mega-brat, that's why!

   "Oh, you didn't know?!?"

   Thanks again, Butch!

  Ashokan Farewell

Words by Grian MacGregor
Music by Jay Ungar

The sun is sinking low in the sky above Ashokan.
The pines and the willows know soon we will part.
There's a whisper in the wind of promises unspoken,
And a love that will always remain in my heart.

My thoughts will return to the sound of your laughter,
The magic of moving as one,
And a time we'll remember long ever after
The moonlight and music and dancing are done.

Will we climb the hills once more?
Will we walk the woods together?
Will I feel you holding me close once again?
Will every song we've sung stay with us forever?
Will you dance in my dreams or my arms until then?

Under the moon the mountains lie sleeping
Over the lake the stars shine.
They wonder if you and I will be keeping
