Hello Carol, Sat. June 3, 06

One of my classmates says that my photo looks like I am in one of those holding cages used in courtrooms when criminals are brought in for arraignment. I guess it is because of the corrugated look.
 
 
         
  Anyway I have attached a scan of the same photo but from the studio's portrait version.

Maybe this will work better?

Carol --

I didn't even know about this until today -- it was written by a friend in 1995, on the 50th anniversary of the end of WWII. It's awesome, and fitting for any day, not just Memorial Day.

Here is a link to a page I posted today in honor of those veterans that served us so well at Normandy and beyond. http://623acw.com/dday/dday.html
 
We speak English today rather than German because of their bravery. May we never forget their sacrifice, and remember it to our young people, many of whom do not know about D-Day.
 
Thanks (again) so much for all you do!

   WOWZERONI, John!  I deliberately didn't sneak a peek at your new page until today.  Thank you for posting that great D-Day Tribute!  I was fascinated by the fact that of all the available images of that day 62 years ago, we both selected the same one to open our respective pages!

   I spent more time perusing your site today than I had done previously, too.  That's quite a work you've done there!  Thanks for sharing it with us!

   (Y'all go take a long look!)
 

 
   

  From Sandi Bateman Chestnut - 06/03/06 - "Hi, from NN":

Hi, Carol,
I was surprised by the significance in your newsletter of June 3rd being the birthday of Jefferson Davis.  I thought surely you were talking about the date of our graduation 41 years ago today :-)  It's hard to believe it's been that long, isn't it?  We have a lot of good friends from those days, don't we?!!  Your newsletter is proof of that!

   Thanks, Sandi!  You know, I meant to mention that - as I did once in years past.  But you know how obsessive I am.  I didn't want to mention one graduation without mentioning them all, and I didn't have all those dates!  WILD GIGGLES!!!

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/oddsends.html
 

And thanks for everything you do, keeping us informed of everything.  Hope you're doing okay, healthwise, now.  Take care of yourself.
Love,
Sandi

   Thanks, Lady!  I'll be good if you will!

 
   
   

  From Linda May Bond Crayton ('66) of VA - 06/03/06:

Carol,

...The Tuck family is quiet impressive. It's great to have pictures and stories of our beginnings. Just love that stuff. Thank you.

And    Mr. David (Spriggs - '64 - of VA)....I think I'm in love!!!! Your story and choice of words and music did not fail to show you up as a romantic at heart and southern gentleman. WOW ! But don't worry, I've been  rode hard, put away wet and neutered. I'm safe as a lap frog. Still love ya though.

Thank you, Miss Carol.

Linda May ' 66

   GIGGLES!!!  I haven't heard that expression since I left southeast Missouri in 1986!

   You're absolutely right. David is a peach - as impressive as any man I've ever known.  He just never ceases to amaze me.

   Thanks, Linda May!
 

 
   

  From Cheryl Mays Howard ('66) of VA - 06/03/06 - "History":

Carol,

I love  ASHOKAN FAREWELL and would love the words.. I have had it on my computer for years.. but did not have the words!

   I'm glad you enjoyed it, Cheryl, and of course, now you have the words, as we always post any lyrics at the bottom of each and every Newsletter and web page.  Today's music has no lyrics, but if it had, they would be listed just under my business card and just above the always (or nearly always!) scintillating credits - all part of the educational services we offer!  GIGGLES!!!
 

I am sending an article about my grandparents farm where we celebrate every year with a family reunion.. My children have gone to this farm all their lives...and such sweet memories!
I enjoyed reading your historical article about your family...thanks to     Cheryl (White) Wilson (John Marshall HS - '64 - of VA) as well.
 
Peace & Blessing,
Cheryl
 
 
 

100 years: The Harvey family farm

By Carrie J. Sidener
csidener@newsadvance.com
Tuesday, May 30, 2006

LOWESVILLE - Atop a hill off Woodson Drive sits an old yellow farmhouse overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains and a century old farm.

A quiet breeze came off the hills Monday morning as the Harvey family sat on the back porch and reminisced about their roots in that fertile land.

The Harvey Farm has been recognized as one of the more than 800 century farms in Virginia.

It is a tradition that the Harvey family hopes to continue for the next 100 years.

“It’s too valuable and too precious to get rid of,” said Gary Harvey, son of Garnett and Gerry Harvey, the farm’s present owners. “It will be passed to us three kids. We want to keep this going. We will pass it on to our children.”

The family farm began with the marriage of Garnett Harvey’s parents - Thomas Harvey and Margie Massie - in 1906. The family settled on Thomas’ parent’s land and began to farm the 136 acres.

The Harvey family had 13 children, of which Garnett was the youngest.

Then came 36 grandchildren, 62 great-grandchildren, 19 great-great-grandchildren and one great-great-great-grandchild.

Garnett owned the farm with his other siblings from 1966 until 2004 when he and his wife, Gerry, took full ownership.

The Harvey farm is one of 10 such farms in Amherst County, five in Appomattox, 16 in Bedford, 15 in Campbell and two others that straddle county lines.

“It’s a link from the past to the future,” Gary said. “You don’t see many farms that remain in a family for 100 years. We plan to keep it in the family all those years after.”

Virginia’s Century Farm Program honors families that have continually farmed land for 100 years, said Marion Horsley, spokesperson for the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.

The recognition began in 1987 as a way of honoring Virginia’s tradition of farming that began almost 400 years ago with the settlement of Jamestown.

To receive the designation, a farm must be owned by the same family for at least 100 consecutive years; must be lived on or farmed by descendants of the original owner; and must either gross more than $2,500 in annual sales or grow trees to eventually produce income.

“The concept is to honor people who have managed to maintain this industry,” Horsley said. “These people have done a tremendous amount of hard work to meet our food and clothing needs.”

The sale of agriculture-based products accounts for 12.3 percent of all sales in

Virginia, contributes $19.5 billion to the state’s gross product and accounts for 10 percent of the jobs, Horsley said.

“The interesting thing about Virginia is that its agriculture is very diverse,” Horsley said. “Almost everything you do - everything you eat and almost everything you wear - has a base in agriculture.”

The Harvey Farm now only produces cattle and hay. At one time, it had peach and apple orchards, as well as producing dairy products, chickens, wheat and hogs.

Garnett remembers working the farm as a child both before he went to school and after.

“The month of June seemed like an eternity,” he said.

Garnett’s day would start with milking the family’s six cows early in the morning. After breakfast, he had to sprint to catch the school bus. When he came home, Garnett worked in the field until dark, then ate dinner before washing up in the creek that runs along the Harvey property.

“My mother sold cream,” Garnett said. “She sold milk too and traded eggs down at the store.”

Every Friday of Garnett’s childhood, the family ate fried chicken, he said.

The only relaxation Garnett said he got was when his mother told him to work in the garden.

The farmhouse he was raised in didn’t have an indoor bathroom until the 1950s.

“We had running water, but we had to run to get it,” said Ronnie Wood, a neighbor how helps work the family far. He has been renting parts of the farm since the 1970s.

The Harvey family holds reunions at the old farmhouse every Memorial Day weekend. This year, 178 relatives showed up at the farm with the additional purpose of celebrating it’s 100th anniversary.

Gary said his family lived in the Lynchburg area since coming from Scotland   when the area was first settled.

“We are an old Virginia family,” he said. “400 years and the vast majority of us live in Virginia.”

   I love reading stories of that nature!   Thanks for including it, Cheryl!  
   
   

  From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 06/05/06 - "Tuck and That":

Hey Carol.
 
Guess what?  Since you are a Tuck did you know the Tuck I knew?  She was Miss Tuck the librarian at George Wythe Jr. High School, Hampton, VA in the 50's.  I was a library aide in Jr. High and got pretty close to her.  I am sure she told me her father or uncle was a past governor for Virginia.   
 
   Then she would have been my first cousin, once removed.  As Bill had no children of his own, she was definitely one of his eight nieces who bore the Tuck name, most if not all of whom were college graduates.  It might have been  Mark's daughter, Peggy Sue; one of Kyle's three daughters, Virginia, Evelyn or Maureen; or one of Ben's four daughters, Truman, Lizzie, Eva, or Lottie Sue.  This question can best be answered by my cousin,   Cheryl (Wilson White - John Marshall HS - '64 - of VA), but if I had to pick one, my money would be on Peggy Sue.

   Oh, Cheryl........

A side note ... I remember that she let me read my first risqué book (after I brought a note from Mama giving me permission).  The book was "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn".  Miss Tuck thought I was mature enough to handle it. :) :)  To this day I can't remember what the risqué part was, it must not have left much of an impression. :)

 
   WILD GIGGLES!!!  You know, I don't think I ever actually read it, but my mama told me that same story - and I don't remember it either!

The following is a good ol' red neck boy's joke.  I have decided that it really is the best security system out there. :)

 
Have a blessed week.

How to install a wireless security system:

Go to a second-hand store, buy a pair of men's used work boots ... a really big pair. Put them outside your front door on top of a copy of Guns and Ammo magazine. Put a dog dish beside it ... a really big dish. Leave a note on your front door that says something like this:

"Bubba, Big Mike and I have gone to get more ammunition - back in 30 minutes. Don't disturb the pit bulls, they've just been wormed."

  From Kelly Loose Bustamante ('58) of VA - 06/03/06 - "Jefferson Davis' 198th Birthday":

Good afternoon, Carol! 
 
Please keep up your great work.  We all appreciate what you do for us.
 
Opening your newsletter today has been a perfect ending for the day.  I spent this morning with approximately 200 Sons of the Confederacy and other UDC members at a ceremony honoring Jefferson Davis' birthday at Hollywood Cemetery.  
 
A light rain began and In the distance a single bagpiper could be heard.  The sound of marching feet came nearer as a group of Confederate soldiers bearing the Confederate flag came up over a hill and down toward Davis Circle.  Then we realized there was a legion of approximately 25 bagpipers and drummers in kilts marching behind the colors.  It became quiet as a light rain continued and the pipes mournful sounds stirred feelings buried deep within us.   Many of us (including myself) cried on this day.  Our Southern legacy is so meaningful and to be able to openly express the honor we feel for President Davis and our heritage is gratifying. 
 
The keynote speaker was historian and author William C. Davis who has written 60 books about the War Between the States.  Thirty to forty wreaths were placed at the foot of Davis' statue representing SCV and UDC chapters from all over the United States.  Many attendees were dressed in period costumes.
 
After the Sons of the Confederacy ceremony, four of us went to the   Jefferson Hotel for lunch, before attending the (41st) Massing of the Flags ceremony at the UDC Headquarters.  Historian, author, and professor, Dr. James I. Robertson spoke to us about Jefferson Davis' duties as president of the Confederacy. 
 
I feel that I have been on hallowed ground today. This has been a very good day. 
 
kb

   Knowing your keen interest in this, Kelly, I thought of you all day, and how you must be observing it.  And you didn't let me down - you did exactly as I thought you would! Thanks so much for sharing those details with us!  The last time I saw all that was in 1985.  You're making me homesick for that "sacred soil" again, Kelly!
 

 
   

  From Ron Miller ('59) of NC - 06/05/06:

Carol -- I believe it was   Herb Hice of MI who recently mentioned using the mouse wheel to enlarge print when it's small.
 
If you're using Outlook Express, you can set the program to change font size for you automatically if the print is smaller than what you would like. Change your default setting by first clicking on "Tools" on the menu bar, then "Options" at the bottom of the drop-down menu, then the "Read" tab, then "Fonts" at the bottom.
 
In the "Fonts" window that comes up, about 2/3 the way down, you will see "Font Size". You have 5 choices in the selection window to the right, from "Smallest" to "Largest".  Choose the one you want, then click Okay. (I've been using "Larger" for a while -- will probably have to promote myself to "Largest" in the not-too-distant future.)  ;-)
 
Any future incoming emails that are smaller than the size font you choose will automatically be changed to your preferred setting. (I think Outlook also has a similar way to set the font size.)

   Strangely enough, Ronnie, I was familiar with that method myself! I could never have explained it so clearly though, so thanks for imparting that unto us!  You're a sweetie-pie!
 

 
   

  From Jay Styles ('68) of VA - 06/06/06:

Good Morning, Carol,
 
My dear sister-in-law and my dearest wife, decided in April that I should change to Verizon DSL for whatever reason; besides, who am I to argue, right?  This changeover was supposed to only take ONE hour.  One and a half months later, with the help of a technical staff member from Toronto, the changeover is now complete! 

   CONGRATULATIONS!!!  Technology - ya gotta love it!

My new E-mail address is:  JWS1452@VERIZON.NET or at least it should be.  During that time I could get the newsletter sometimes but I could not send anything. 

   I've changed your listing for you again:

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/alumni-list.html

I was going to take you to task immediately on one issue, so here goes:  YOUR Mother never, ever, had or owned nor knew any Ugly-Ducklings!  Get my Drift?  I know you don't remember me from school, being an underclassman who was quiet, shy, low key, etc. (boy, where did all that go?), but I do remember seeing you and one thing I do know for a fact, you were not, are not, will not be, an Ugly-Duckling.  I remain in AWE of you. 

   Jay, you Sweetie-Pie!  You made my whole day!    I'm astonished and flabbergasted that you remember me, especially as so many people I actually knew - and some whom I knew quite well - do not!  Thanks so much!

It's been busy here lately.  Another shooting that left three dead because a guy thought he was going to be fired.  Actually, he was not going to be.  The first person he shot was the husband of a longtime friend of ours.  Saturday a week ago, I investigated another fatal accident involving a person that I knew. 

   Oh, Jay, I'm so sorry!

You asked about the suicide.  A young man of twenty had another fight with his girlfriend and the mother of his two children, and stormed out of the apartment at about 1:00AM.  They were both heavy into the gothic scene along with alcohol and drug abuse.  He went and got drunk, drove to Wal-Mart, bought about 50' of 3/16' steel braided cable, and drove to a rural area of the county.  He backed his car off of the roadway, tied one end of the cable around a large tree, put the rest through the passenger window and rolled up the window.  He got into the driver's seat, tied a slip knot around the other end of the cable, and put it around his neck, put the car in gear, and let his foot off of the brake.  Took us thirty minutes to find his head, as he was sitting on it.  If I was going to commit suicide I could think of a lot of other ways to do it, like old age.  This took some creative thinking on his part, to say the least.  I keep thinking that I've seen and done it all over the years, but I keep finding out, NOT EVEN CLOSE.  Ever want to stop the world and get off? 

   YOWZERONI-ROONI!!!  How awful!!!

I'll end on a good note though. Last Sunday we went to Glen Allen near Richmond and Donna competed in her first triathlon and placed third in her age group.  Not bad for first time out.  Now she can't wait for another one.  Soon I will send the information you requested concerning my service in the Army.  I was hardly famous. The closest I got was in 1970. John Sweeter from NY and I captured a North Korean Agent trying to get across the DMZ back into North Korea. 

   These Famous Military pages began almost (but not quite) tongue in cheek, a memory check for my failing brain.  One needn't be really "famous" to be included.  I've always loved the mixing of celebrities with our friends and family members.  And one need not have done anything spectacular or heroic or even noteworthy while in the military service to be listed here - although capturing an enemy agent would certainly qualify you for that as well, in my mind!  WOWZERONI!  Thanks!

My father-in-law, a 2LT with the 101st Airborne, HQ502, landed with the first wave on D-Day on Utah Beach in Normandy.  He was behind enemy lines on several instances, ended up with 2 purple hearts, bronze star and the silver star.  In my entrance stairwell hangs a picture of him receiving his silver star from General Eisenhower.  He's also listed in the book Rendezvous with Destiny, a History of the 101st Airborne Division.  He was going to be a guest speaker at the dedication of the D-Day Memorial in Bedford a few years ago, but his health would not permit his attendance.  Now, he truly is an American Hero, although he will decline the allocation. 

   And we'll be honored to post him on Famous Soldiers as well!

Carol, gotta run, you are still the greatest.  The work and dedication that you and    Dave Spriggs ('64 - of VA) do for this website is simply stupendous and does not go un-noticed.
 

Typhoon Nation, take care of yourselves and each other, our numbers are getting smaller, and they are not making anymore. 

You can't crush a Crab?    Well, not every time, but it was fun when we did, wasn't it?  I almost married a Crabber way back when; you gotta love em.
 

Jay '68

   GIGGLES!!!  Thanks again, Sweetie!
 

 
   


And now for your holiday treat:

    From Fred Field ('45) of CA - ummm, long, long ago - "D-DAY AT NNHS":

D-DAY AT NNHS

by

Fred W. Field

Class of June 1945

      Beginning in late May of 1944 we students had been told and reminded that we would have a special assembly when the invasion of Europe began. As the calendar crept into June we began to wonder if the event would happen before Friday the ninth - the day school closed for the summer.

      We had a lot to think about in that early June of 1944. My own class was just finishing the junior year. For most juniors, the end of the semester would be a determining point for whether or not our earned credits by the following June would likely add up to the minimum required for graduation. A few classmates had already made the decision to stretch out the graduation date for at least an extra semester (an ambitious athletic department head helped nurture that idea).

      Many of us pondered the chances of the war lasting long enough for our age group to be swept into the military. At June 1944 most boys in my class were within plus or minus a few months from a sixteenth birthday. The draft boards were already grabbing fresh eighteen-year-olds. We had known seniors who had fallen behind in the education time track and were drafted right out of school - some of them only a month before graduation. For my contemporaries the time-to-uniform seemed already stamped into our destiny. 

      Those who had plans for college knew that the institutions were crowded with military programs and that entrance immediately after high school might be difficult. The draft board would certainly be watching with interest.

      Others just thought about their forthcoming summer employment - which for most of the boys meant a job in the shipyard. There would be a long, long six-day week and while the pay would seem great, the work would be weary and dirty.

      A few of us had signed up for summer jobs as waiters at the Orkney Springs Hotel - an upscale resort in the mountains close to the West Virginia Border. We had no idea what an adventure that would turn out to be.

      On the morning of Tuesday, June 6th we woke up to radio reports that the invasion had begun. Landings had started just before daybreak on the English Channel beaches of France, the time there being about nine hours prior to our waking up in Virginia. Conversation was quiet on the bus trip to school. There wasn't a lot to say. Most of us were aware of the dangers of that invasion and how disastrous failure could be.

      Not long after we were settled in our classrooms the summons came for the special assembly. About an hour later we filed into the auditorium and quietly took our seats. This was certainly not to be a pep rally. No band playing this time. No bouncy cheerleaders hyping up our spirits. Not even any of the usual applause for the self conscious student helper who dragged the microphone onto the stage and tested the PA system.

      As was traditionally the case in our assemblies, some opening remarks were made by Dean of Girls Ethel Gildersleeve. She then very quickly introduced our Principal, Lamar R. Stanley. 

      Principal Stanley was always a rather serious person but on this day he made a particularly solemn speech about the significance of what was happening on the beaches of Normandy. He reminded us of the price paid by those recent schoolmates already lost in action in many places around the world. All of us had known some of them personally. 

      In retrospect I think that in his speech our Principal intended a strong message that we must be prepared for the list of the fallen to suddenly grow. There was a brief interlude for a prayer by a local minister. Then after a few closing words from Principal Stanley our special assembly for D-Day was concluded.
 

      Thanks so very much, Fred!  You can't know how much I appreciate having you with us to share these precious memories!

  From Stacy Dorn ('64) of VA - 05/22/06 - "Happy Day" (#9 in a series of  9):

Hope every day is happy for you :)

Have a Blessed Day

I would rather have one rose and a kind word from a friend while I'm here

than a whole truck load when I'm gone.  THESE ARE FOR YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

 
 

What a lovely arrangement! 

These have been beautiful and fun.  Thanks so much, Stacy!

 
     
     
   
   

   By the way, I split the available notes and entries about half and half between today and (hopefully) tomorrow.  Do stay tuned!  

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

                          Love to all, Carol
