Bridge Over Troubled Water

"Black are the brooding clouds and troubled the deep waters, when the Sea of Thought,
first heaving from a calm, gives up its Dead..”

- Charles Dickens, The Chimes, Third Quarter
(7 Feb 1812 - 9 June 1870)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Today's Newsletter's theme is brought to you courtesy of my Magic Shower - which pulled it out of who knows where.

   You may have noticed by my total silence - and I owe at least five of y'all long personal notes - that I've been a bit under the weather lately.  At such times it is far better that I maintain silence, as any semblance of reason leaves me, and the resulting necessary damage control is just too exhausting.

   Obviously, I've enough material for three or four Newsletters, so I'm just going to take some of the notes in no particular order and fly with them today.  Keep the faith.



1. Don Howard ('5_?) of ? via Joan Ownby Mathieson ('58) of VA - 08/02/06 - "request":

Hi Carol;
I met an NNHS grad at my husband's HHS 50th reunion  a few weeks ago and I was telling him about your wonderful news letters and how much I enjoyed reading them... His name is Don Howard and he is married to Jo Marpel who is in that HHS '56 class with my husband.  Don said he would love to be on your mail list.  His e-mail: __________________. 

   WONDERFUL!!!  Thanks, Joan!  I've added Don's name to the (usually) hidden mailing lists, and to the Alumni Page.  I wasn't able to find his senior image to scan, and I didn't know which class was his, so his name is shown towards the end of the Alumni Page:

  I'll amend that as soon as I have the missing details.

   Welcome aboard, Don!  We're happy to have you with us!

Thanks again for the on-going news about everybody.  I appreciate getting your e-mail so much.  I am putting a little check in the mail today to help you defray some of your expenses for this great service you provide for all of us.  I know it's a sort of hobby for you, but it is of great benefit to so many.....and you shouldn't have to bare all that expense alone. 

   Bless your heart, Pretty Lady!   Your timing is excellent; thanks so much!

By-the-way.  The HHS 50th was a blast.  They started with a Friday night mixer at a Hampton Restaurant.  Then Saturday  we all spent the whole afternoon at Bill Diggs' beautiful home on the water for a great outdoor party with cool breezes,  bushels of steamed crabs, lots of fried chicken and all the barbecue in the world......with all the trimmings.  And the week end was ended with a Sunday morning brunch at the Holiday Inn breakfast buffet.  We all had a great time.  I think it was the largest number that had attended any of their other reunions.  People were there we thought were dead! ha ha  We had just gotten back from 2 weeks in Europe and were so tired from all that travel.  But when we got to Hampton and hooked up with all those crabbers we forgot all about being tired.  Those Hampton folks always were good at throwing parties!  When I was in high school I always loved getting invited to Hampton parties!  I'm glad I married into that group so I could always go to their parties! 


   That sounds fabulous, Lady!  I think we all need more parties in life!  And I know for a fact we all need to visit with friends - old and new - more often!  Thanks again, Joan!



   Tuesday was the 63rd birthday of     Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC. Hmmm - that name sounds strangely familiar somehow.  I think I know that man......

   A Very Merry Un-Birthday to You, Dools!


  From Christine Wilson Starkman ('68) of CA - 07/30/06:

Hi Carol!
The weather has finally broken here in SoCal, which is a good thing, because so has our air conditioner. It got us through the worst of the heat wave, and I guess it deserves a break. Hopefully a short one.

   YOWZERONI!!!  I'm soooo sorry!!!  I hope you're able to have it repaired soon!


Thank you to    Jay Stiles ('68 - of VA) for the nice compliment on my writing. (Mrs. Cameron would be proud.) It's great to see you, Jay. You haven't aged a bit!  I'd love to hear more from the class of '68, too. They can't all still be down on the commune! Maybe I'll renew my Classmates membership and start spreading the news.
Love and Peace,



   Jay does still look adorable, doesn't he?!?

   And speaking of your writing - and Mrs. Cameron - I have a surprise for you coming soon!  I should have it in the next Newsletter or very shortly thereafter!  GIGGLES!!!  I just love surprises, don't you?!?

   Thanks, Chris!


  From Chandler Nelms (Hampton HS - '63) of MD - 07/31/06 - "Paul Anka's
65th Birthday":

Oh, Carol! That background music (Diana) really took me WAY back. I was every bit of twelve or thirteen and I had a crush (actually more than a crush, because I remember I kissed her) on Diana Jurgensen. She and her older sister Susan (I think) lived in the Wythe area one street off Kecoughtan Road toward the water parallel to Kecoughtan. As I recall, she was a little older than me. But that seemed to be my modus operandi back then……”dating” older women… Linda Carmines and Brenda Cole. Does anyone remember or stay in touch with any of these girls? They still are, and forever will be “girls” in my mind.  

Chandler Nelms

   Well, they're all new to me, Chandler. Without reaching back too hard, I think the only Hampton girls I knew even slightly were Carolyn Haldeman ('59), Sally Mac Smith ('62??), Paulette Westphal ('64), Bettyrene Cook ('64), Martha Reed Ennis ('65) and a Wyatt gal ('65) whose first name momentarily escapes me who lived at the corner of Chesapeake and Manteo right across from You Know Where.

   "Anyone?  Anyone?"

   That was a great song, wasn't it? Nobody picks 'em better than   David (Spriggs - '64 - of VA)!

    Thanks, Chandler Darlin'!    I'm glad it brought back pleasant memories for you!  That's why we're here!


  From Danny Coleman ('63) of NC - 07/31/06:

Thanks again, Carol, for the newsletters.

   Thank you, Danny!  I'm glad you're enjoying them!

A few more names for the SPD roster: '61: Bobby Boyce and    Downey Wray, John McCormick,    Gerald Schweida, Calvin Hanrahan, Allen Hall and Jimmy Hall (as in James Christopher Hall) (though Jimmy's class was '60; he was out a semester for a football injury and came back to graduate in '61); '62: David Riley; '63: Wayne Gaskill, Zetie Dameron; '66: Steve Smith (Howard's - '63 - brother). Some guys missed the photo session or were pledging at the time...

   I can't imagine how I neglected to include all those names, Danny.  Thanks!  They are now posted:

Also, my personal info requested: Born Oct. 19, 1942...Hometown: Newport News...Service: USMC/Combat Engineer...Retired from sales...Was a writer for 11 years (novels/newspaper) and threw in the towel, until after retirement two years ago. Now writing again, without the pressure...Spare time? All of it's spare, except when I'm with my grandson, the great American, Tuckie, and that's usually a lot...Other interests: Reading, working out (weights, running, martial arts), the beach; developing my trademark, IVY BRIDGE, a private label clothing mark, and designing new marks for eventual retail/wholesale marketing, traveling the southeast U.S... Trying to be cute whenever I can...

   Ahhh, you've always been adorable, Danny!   Thanks!  You're now an official Famous Marine:


  From Mike Miller ('65) of NC - 07/31/06 - "Retirement and email change":

   I switched your email addie for you in all the right places:

   Take care of yourself, Blue Eyes!   See you in September, yes???


    From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 07/31/06 and 08/03/06 - "NNHS 64/60 CONFIRMED



   Thanks, David!    I've posted them for you:


  From Joe Drewry ('58) of VA - 07/31/06 - "  Allen Foster ('58  - of VA) is progressing
well, 7/31/06":

John Munick just emailed good news.
Allen Foster is progressing and beginning to regain some strength.. If all continues to go well he could come home Thurs. or Fri.
Keep those cards and prayers flowing, and ya'll take care of yourselves, you heah!

   That is wonderful news, indeed, Joe!  Thanks so much for passing it along to us!


  From Kelly Loose Bustamante ('58) of VA - 07/31/06:

Hi Carol,
Always a pleasure to open another of your letters and see your smiling face! 

   OOOPS!!!  You mean, this face?!?   I didn't get around to posting anything from myself today, Kelly - but thanks!

I have a question for our schoolmates; does anyone remember the name of the jewelry store on Washington Avenue that had a clock (that actually kept pretty good time) in the floor of the store's entryway?

Thank you for keeping us together!
Kelly Loose Bustamante, NNHS'58

   I should know the answer to this, Kelly.  We have a plethora of jewelry stores listed on Our Old Stomping Grounds, and it's probably right in front of my eyes.  But I'll just pass this one on to one of our National Smart People.  Some one among them is sure to know!

   "Anyone?  Anyone?"

   Thanks, Kelly!


    From John London (Warwick HS - '57) of VA - 08/01/06 - "Hi, Carol - Stay cool.
Today will be triple digits.":

I think maybe this is one of Andrea's (little-squirrel) distant cousins from south Georgia. ;>)

   Oh, this is too good!    Thanks, Sweetie!!!

    From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 08/01/06 - "Trinity Methodist":

Here is a EBAY PC (dated 1910) I have not seen before:


   Ohhhh, David!  Thank you so much for this lovely old postcard of my beloved Trinity!    I've never seen it before either!  I redid the Trinity Methodist Church page, and it ended up being spotlighted in the process:

  From My Sister, Eleanor Buckley Nowitzky ('59) of NC - 08/01/06 - "The Bear Story":


Please thank
  Judy Phillips Allen ('66 - of VA) for the bear story which was told so wonderfully I could almost see it all happen.

   Wasn't that just such a hoot?!?

Happy birthday to your husband,
  Paul (Harty - Bardolph HS, IL - '61 - of NC), not to be confused with   Paul Anka who celebrated his birthday July 30. I'll call your Paul later today.


Eleanor Nowitzky

   Thanks, Lady!  We'll have that birthday party yet - probably tomorrow night, hmmm?


  From Elaine Wilkinson Bracken ('61) of VA - 08/01/06 - "  John London
(Warwick HS - '57) of VA

It was great to "meet" John London, who lived at 1419 24th street as a boy, for I also lived at that same address when I was a youngster. You see, I moved to the big city of Newport News when I was in the 4th grade, moving to 24th Street the next year. The Gillis family (Steve '61 and Mary '60) lived at 1419-24th Street, and we rented the house next door to them. When the Gillis family moved to the "country" in Warwick County, Dad bought the Gillis house. Mr. and Mrs. Gillis were my second set of parents. Mr. Gillis died July18th, but was still driving his truck in May. He was one remarkable man, and his son Steve is Just like him. He will be greatly missed by so many. 
Take good care of yourself; there are a lot of Typhoon
who love and appreciate you. Peace and joy, Elaine    in  

   OOOOH - Another Tied up with Strings story!  Thanks, Elaine!

   I'm sorry I seem to have missed Mr. Gillis' death.  Let's take a look:

   Well, I saw this, and apparently it went right over my head.  Thanks for telling us, Elaine.  We extend our sincerest sympathies to Mary and Steve and their families - and to all his friends as well.

  From Karen Weinstein Witte ('60) of FL - 08/01/06 - "Class of 60":

Hi Carol,
I just got back from Maryland and am catching up on emails. I was helping out with my 3-year old granddaughter while my son and daughter-in-law got ready to have their 2nd baby. Jackson (Jack) Patrick was born last Wednesday.  Mother and son doing fine - Grammy doing great!!!!
I see you had trouble with the pdf files I sent you with the invitation, program, and tickets for the Class of 60 graduation exercises. Hope you have better luck with these jpg files.
Take care,

   A new grandbaby!!!  How wonderful!!!  Congratulations, Karen!  May we expect pictures soon?!?

   And thanks for sending those images again.  There's probably a better way to do this, but it might require me to think, and that's just still out of the question, sooooo......


  From Karen Weinstein Witte ('60) of FL - 07/12/06 - "Class of 60 graduation":

Hi Carol,

I've attached scans of the invitation, program and tickets for Commencement Exercises for the Class of 1960.  Commencement took place on Thursday, June 9, 1960 at 8 pm. Please note a typo - the program says Friday, June 9th but commencement was actually on Thursday, June 9th.

I also have the invitation for the "Graduation Dance at Newport News High School Cafeteria" for Thursday, June 9, 1960, from 10 pm to 1 am; a ticket and program for the Junior-Senior Prom "Misty" for June 3, 1960, from 9 pm to 12 m, (as well as my corsage); and a program for the Commencement Service at NNHS on Sunday, June 5, 1960, at 5 pm. These are all in one big album with pictures from the 15th, 20th, 25th, 30th, 35th, 40th, and 45th reunions of the Class of 60!

   I think it is simply wonderful that you have all those items of memorabilia, Karen!  What a treasure!

Take care and thanks for all the wonderful work you do to keep us TYPHOONS connected!


   Thank you so much for rescanning these for me, Karen!  It was an enormous help, and I really appreciate it!   And don't they look nice all posted???

  From Susie Overton Jones ('63) of AL - 08/01/06 - "Paul Shaver":

We spoke to friends in Hampton tonight, Bill & Darlene Zehrbach, and were told of the untimely passing of Paul Shaver, (WHS 59 or 60, <he attended all the reunions>).  Many may remember Paul from "The Blue Lite Club", as he was one of the founders.
Paul was a good friend of ours as well as many Newport News and Warwick High School students.  Paul's parents owned Shaver's Piano Store on Warwick Boulevard and Center Avenue in the 50's & 60's.  Paul and brother Bill decided not to stay in the family business, so they ventured on their own, and moved to "the Outer Banks" and became very successful in their own endeavors.
Paul passed away Sunday, 7/30, in Roanoke, VA in a tragic ATV accident.
Services are be held at "The Black Pelican",  Outer Banks, NC on Friday, 8/4.
Susie Jones
Class '63

   Oh, Susie, I'm so sorry to hear that!  I know how well liked he was, and also just how many of y'all called him your friend!


From the Daily Press - 08/03/06:

Paul Fleming Munde Shaver III
  NAGS HEAD, N.C. - Paul Shaver, an Outer Banks businessman, investor and continent-hopping adventurer, died Sunday when he was thrown from an all-terrain vehicle on his mountain property in Montvale, Va. Paul Fleming Munde Shaver III, known to his friends as 'Paulie,' died at age 65, although his physician medically certified him as age 55 and he always thought himself to be even younger. Paulie, son of the late Paul F.M. Shaver II and Betty Shaver, was born and raised in Newport News, Va., where he attended Warwick High School. In Newport News, he worked as a bank manager and worked for his father's piano business, Shaver's Magnavox. In his younger years he traveled Europe, lived abroad, taught skiing in Switzerland and ran with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain. He is survived by his soul mate and lifetime partner, Sarah Morris; his daughter, Kimberly Harrah, and her significant other, Jimmy Bayne; and his son, Leonard A. Bennett, and his wife, Drina Northam, who Paulie was very close to and gave away at their wedding. He is also survived by his granddaughter, Kendall Carrithers, who he thought of as his daughter and his granddaughter, Sydney Smith. Also surviving him are his brothers, Billy Shaver, now of Buchanan, Va., and Jack Shaver of Newport News, Va.; his sister, Sally Cudworth of Bel Air, Md., and their spouses, Cheryl, Mary Lou and Carl. He lost his younger sister, Beth, to an automobile accident when she was a teen. Paul is also survived by countless close friends, including his former wife and mother of his children, Donna Harrah, and friend, Bill Jordan. On late Sunday afternoon, Paulie left on his 4-wheel ATV to travel up a mountain on his Goose Creek Valley property. When he did not return after dark, Sarah and a neighbor searched for and found Paul. He was thrown off the ATV and suffered what is believed to be a fatal neck injury, while traversing a steep part of the mountain. The medical examiner believes that he died near instantly. Paulie lived in his Nags Head home in the Nature Conservancy and came to the Outer Banks over 34 years ago. Paul was the owner of The Black Pelican Seafood Company Restaurant, Kitty Hawk. Together with his partner, John Lancaster, he began his ventures in the Outer Banks with the night club 'Oz.' They then built and operated Nags Head Realty and J. Fleming Munde's Restaurant, which was later sold to Kelly's. They also developed and owned the Barrier Island Station Resorts and recently formed Barrier Island Aviation. Paulie was also co-owner of Surgarcreek Café, formerly RVs, Nags Head and numerous other real estate and ventures in the Outer Banks, Roanoke Valley, Wyoming and even Switzerland. Paulie lived an adventurous life, but was never a daredevil. He raced cars and trucks, including a stint in the NASCAR's Sportsman class, marathon rally races from London, England, to Sydney, Australia, and recently, in May 2006, up the length of South America, and even desert racing across the Mexican Baha. In addition to running with the bulls in Pamplona, Paulie mountain climbed and even took the opportunity to fly a Russian Mig Jet. An avid pilot, he regularly and often flew young burn victims and their families for the Shriners, and together with long time friend Rex Peters, flew relief missions for Hurricane Katrina victims. Memorial contributions may be made to Transitions Family Violence Services, 137 Kings Way, P. O. Box 561, Hampton, VA 23669. A celebration of Paulie's life will be conducted from 1 to 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 4, at The Black Pelican Seafood Company Restaurant located at mile marker 4 in Kitty Hawk, N.C. There will also be a second memorial celebration at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 8, at the James River Country Club, Newport News, Va.

   If you'll check out this Guest Book, you'll see that it is quite extensive already.

  From Jane Monfalcone Simmons ('61) of GA - 08/02/06 - "New E-Mail":

Could you change my e-mail address from to for the newsletter mail list.  We just moved to GA from York County.
Thanks so much!
Jane Monfalcone Simmons

   YOWZERONI!!!  You left "the sacred soil of Virginia" willingly and of your own free will and accord?!?  Sigh...

   Well, okay, Jane, I have your addies all switched now:

   Enjoy your new home, Lady!   Don't mind me; I'm just perpetually homesick!


  From David Whitley ('67) of VA - 08/03/06:

And here comes another one of my fast & furious, "e-mail it while I can" messages! Geez, I'm more betterer now, health-wise, but I are totally swamped work-wise. Again. This is getting to be the norm rather than the unusual. Then again, more than once I've been called "rather unusual", so I guess it fits. ?

Quickly, I have to tell you about the conversation my mom & I had in the office of the Cremation Place of Really Intense Fire & Heat Center, place. (Yeah, Mom & Dad had agreed years ago that they wanted to be cremated, so in accordance with his wishes ... there we were). Following the spiel from Mr. Jumpin' Jack Flash on what they do, Mom leans over to me & whispers, "David, when the ashes come back, if it's not your daddy, I'm not paying for them".

Puzzled, I looked at her and said, "Ma, it's gonna be a box of ashes, how are you gonna know whether it's Daddy or not? It could be Oscar Pennyfeather from Switzerland & you wouldn't know it".

Mom raised one eyebrow & said, "Oh yeah? Did you happen to see your daddy's big toenail? No fire in the world could burn up that nasty looking thing, so, when I open the box, if I don't see that ugly toenail, it's not your daddy and I'm not paying".

I'm pretty sure that Captain Cremo, or whatever the guy's name is that was across the desk from us, had never heard a belly laugh like the one I had right then, at a time like that. Daddy would have loved it. That's my mom, God love her.

And I swear, somewhere in that building I saw a plaque that read, "Our Urns Are Never Sealed, So When You Get 'em You Can Go Ahead and Kiss Our Ashes".

Then again, maybe not.

Thusly, and thankfully to Mom, my somewhat & sometimes seemingly (?) disrespectful sense of humor has returned & I do hereby give unto thee my permission to print this tale of truth in thy NNHS publication, under "you might be a redneck if'n yer last name ends in "Whitley". And it is the truth. I would do that thing they do in the courtroom if I could ever remember the correct way, you know, right hand on the Bible, left hand raised, or, left hand on the Bible, right hand on your heart, or right hand in your pocket, left foot on the bench, or both hands clasped behind the back, while doing the Celtic Dance of the Spurned Lover. If I could only remember the correct sequence.

Well, later babe, d

   David Darlin', I think only you could make such a story so enchanting!  I'm so glad you're all "betterer" now.  How I've missed your delightful nonsense!  Thanks so much, Gorgeous!

Bridge Over Troubled Water

- Paul Simon

(Simon and Garfunkel)

When you're weary, feeling small
When tears are in your eyes, I'll dry them all...all...
I'm on your side, oh, when times get rough
And friends just can't be found
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

When you're down and out
When you're on the street
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you (ooh)
I'll take your part, oh, when darkness comes
And pain is all around
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

Sail on Silver Girl,
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way
See how they shine
Oh, if you need a friend
I'm sailing right behind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
