St. Louis 4, Detroit 2

By RONALD BLUM, AP Baseball Writer
October 27, 2006

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Favored by few, the St. Louis Cardinals used an unlikely cast of characters to win their first World Series in nearly a quarter century.

Jeff Weaver dominated, David Eckstein drove in two runs on balls that didn't leave the infield and the Cards took advantage of another wild throw by a Tigers pitcher to beat Detroit 4-2 on Friday night and won the Series in five games.

"I think we shocked the world," Cardinals center fielder Jim Edmonds said. "It's an unbelievable experience."

Manager Tony La Russa's Cardinals had just 83 regular-season wins, the fewest by a World Series winner, and nearly missed the playoffs after a late-season slump. But the Cardinals beat San Diego and the New York Mets in the playoffs, then won their first title since 1982 by taming a heavily favored Tigers team that entered the Series with six days' rest.



  From Gloria Woolard Price (Hampton HS - '65) of FL - 10/25/06:

The article about the history of the HHS/NNHS football games came in blurry.......will it be

readable when you post it on the Site?

   In the words of that great philosopher, Donkey, "Uh, no, not really, no."

   I stood on my head six ways from Tuesday, and that was my best shot.

   See, the problem is, I can crop, shrink and compress things.  I can enlarge things.  But I cannot uncompress things.  Those images arrived smaller than I'd like.  The act of enlarging them blurred the text beyond my ability to repair it.

   And that explains my delay in posting it as well......

   Ummm, sorry, Gloria!  


  From Jay Styles ('68) of VA - 10/25/06:

Evening Carol,
Hope you are doing absolutely wonderful.  Still have the hot weather?  It spit snow here for the last two days!  Our first measurable amount of 1".  It's great.  On the 11th of this month we celebrated our 20th anniversary.  Went to the Boars Head Inn, in Charlottesville for dinner, then to the Paramount Theatre for the Trisha Yearwood concert.  Went to see the Redskins play(?) on the 15th.  On the way home, got rear-ended by an 18 wheeler on I-81, and while I was running the speed limit, no less.  That's the second time in 6 weeks that I have been hit in the rear while in Donna's Super Skate.  I may never be allowed to drive it again. 

For punishment, we and twenty of our friends, went to the Watoga State Park in W.Va. over the weekend for a mountain bike ride.  I have not been on a bike, at least one that is human powered, since I was 14 or 15 years old.  The good news, I did NOT crash, or even get struck in the rear.  The bad news, the trip was a ten mile trip to a restaurant and a ten mile trip back to the cabin, and the temperature was 37 degrees.  While at the restaurant, a car jumped the curb and ran into the corner of the restaurant, and they did not have drive through service!  I'm still sore in places that I won't mention. 

If you didn't make it to the mountains in the past week, you missed the peak color of the leaves.  Haven't worked a full month since May, I'm starting to get used to this, retirement is looking better all the time, but I go back to normal (?) shift tomorrow afternoon. 

Well, gotta run, take care of yourself.

Jay Styles, '68

   YOWZERONI, Sweetie!  You really know how to have "fun"!!!

   Be careful!!!


  From Evelyn Fryer Fish ('58) of TX - 10/26/06 - "Friend":


  This is wonderful, Ev!  Thanks so much!

  From Me ('65) of NC to  Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 10/25/06:

   I believe I have read this book several times, Joe.  Was it Return from Tomorrow by Dr. George Ritchie of VA,%20George%20G

   I have temporarily misplaced my copy of it, as well as several others on the same subject, but having had two near-death experiences myself, the writings are very precious to me.


 From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 10/26/06:

Hi, Carol:
You are right! My neighbor in Paoli, PA was Tom Ritchie, and it was his uncle, Dr. George Ritchie who wrote Return From Tomorrow and it pleased   Fred Thomas to no end. So many of his books had footnotes making reference to this book for it was so well documented.
Tom just happened to give me this book as a "going away present" when    Eva (Ellis Madagan - '61) and I moved from Pennsylvania. He had been a neighbor for 14 years, and his Friends Church congregation was starting a shelter for battered women and we donated furniture that our kids had left behind when they left the nest. It was called "House of the Sparrow" and he gave us the book as a token of his appreciation. After all that searching in rare book stores, it was handed to me by a neighbor. I kept Fred's letter of appreciation and sent Tom a copy.
Life is fragile, handle with prayer.
Joe Madagan ('57) of FL

   WOW!  Isn't it amazing the threads and twists and byways which bind our lives together???

   As an aside, both Dr. Ritchie and his co-author, Elizabeth Sherrill, are distant cousins of my mama's.

   Thanks so much, Adonis!  I really appreciate knowing this.

Dear Carol,

There is nothing in the whole wide world that I admire more than a BLOND POLE DANCER, Especially if she wears a beautiful fur coat when she does her act. She never takes off her fur coat and that is what makes her more attractive, I just want to cuddle with her ~~~~~ FUR COAT AND ALL.

Your Friend, Herbie

   And what a beautiful, cuddly babe she is, Herbie Darlin'! 

   Marines have always been known for their good taste in girls!

   Thanks, Sweetie!

  From My #2 Son, Brent Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL - '90) of IL - 10/26/06:

Thanks, Mom,

...liked the pictures in your website.  I need to get you a real Senior pic, as that one is probably when I was a Freshman or something. 

Take, bh

   Well, yes, it was taken on April 12, 1987, so it was just nine days before your fifteenth birthday.  But it's so cute!   Thanks, Brent!


  From Wayne Stokes ('65) of VA - 10/27/06 - "Why we love kids":

Why we love kids


I was driving with my three young children one warm summer evening when a woman in the convertible ahead of us stood up and waved. She was stark naked! As I was reeling from the shock, I heard my 5-year-old shout from the back seat, "Mom! That lady isn't wearing a seat belt!

My son Zachary, 4, came screaming out of the bathroom to tell me he'd dropped his toothbrush in the toilet. So I fished it out and threw it in the garbage. Zachary stood there thinking for a moment, then ran to my bathroom and came out with my toothbrush. He held it up and said with a charming little smile, "We better throw this one out too then, 'cause it fell in the toilet a few days ago.
On the first day of school, a first-grader handed his teacher a Note from his mother. The note read, "The opinions expressed by this child are not necessarily those of his parents."

A woman was trying hard to get the ketchup to come out of the jar. During her struggle the phone rang so she asked her 4-year-old daughter to answer the phone. "It's the minister, Mommy," the child said to her mother. Then she added, "Mommy can't come to the phone to talk to you right now. She's hitting the bottle."


A little boy got lost at the YMCA and found himself in the women's locker room. When he was spotted, the room burst into shrieks, with ladies grabbing towels and running for cover. The little boy watched in amazement and then asked, "What's the matter haven't you ever seen a little boy before?"


While taking a routine vandalism report at an elementary school, I was interrupted by a little girl about 6 years old. Looking up and down at my uniform, she asked, "Are you a cop?" "Yes," I answered and continued writing the report. "My mother said if I ever needed help I should ask the police. Is that right?" "Yes, that's right," I told her. "Well, then," she said as she extended her foot toward me, "would you please tie my shoe?"

It was the end of the day when I parked my police van in front of the station. As I gathered my equipment, my K-9 partner, Jake, was barking, and I saw a little boy staring in at me. "Is that a dog you got back there?" he asked. "It sure is," I replied. Puzzled, the boy looked at me and then towards the back of the van. Finally he said, "What'd he do?"


While working for an organization that delivers lunches to elderly shut-ins, I used to take my 4-year-old daughter on my afternoon rounds. The various appliances of old age, particularly the canes, walkers and wheelchairs, unfailingly intrigued her. One day I found her staring at a pair of false teeth soaking in a glass. As I braced myself for the inevitable barrage of questions, she merely turned and whispered, "The tooth fairy will never believe this!"

A little girl was watching her parents dress for a party. When she saw her dad donning his tuxedo, she warned, "Daddy, you shouldn't wear that suit." "And why not, darling?" "You know that it always gives you a headache the next morning."


While walking along the sidewalk in front of his church, our minister heard the intoning of a prayer that nearly made his collar wilt. Apparently, his 5-year-old son and his playmates had found a dead robin. Feeling that proper burial should be performed, they had secured a small box and cotton batting, then dug a hole and made ready for the disposal of the deceased. The minister's son was chosen to say the appropriate prayers and with sonorous dignity intoned his version of what he thought his Father always said: "Glory be unto the Faaaather, and unto the Sonnn ..... and into the hole he gooooes."


A little girl had just finished her first week of school. "I'm just wasting my time," she said to her mother. "I can't read, I can't write and they won't let me talk!"
A little boy opened the big family bible. He was fascinated as he fingered through the old pages. Suddenly, something fell out of the Bible. He picked up the object and looked at it. What he saw was an old leaf that had been pressed in between the pages. "Mama, look what I found", the boy called out." What have you got there, dear?" With astonishment in the young boy's voice, he answered, "I think it's Adam's underwear!"

   These are priceless, Wayne Honey!  Thanks so much!

Fellow Classmates.
I wanted to thank all of you for attending our Birthday Celebration. I hope that you had a memorable evening.
I also hope that you took lots of candid photos of your classmates, of Ms. Kanter ... and of "THE KING".
I know that those who could not attend (and other NNHS classes) would love to see all of your photos. The best way to make that happen is to let Carol Buckley Harty ('65 - of NC) place them on the NNHS Web Page.  And, the best way to do that is to send them all to me, so that I can archive them to my hard drive before sending them along to Carol.
You can attach them to e-mails, if you wish, but I can handle any media.
For e-mails, send them to:
For "snail mail" send them to:    NNHS CLASS OF 1964, P.O. BOX 6387, Norfolk VA 23508-0387
It was great seeing all of you.

   I have simply stopped about one-third of the way into this Newsletter as I'm experiencing further technical difficulties.  Something keeps causing all the lines to squeeze themselves too closely together.  This is so annoying me, I shall have to continue writing this until I'm able to determine this cause of it and correct it - as in Monday or Tuesday......

We Are the Champions


I've paid my dues
Time after time
I've done my sentence
But committed no crime
And bad mistakes
I've made a few
I've had my share of sand
Kicked in my face
But I've come through
And I need to go on and on and on and on

We are the champions - my friend
And we'll keep on fighting till the end
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers
'Cause we are the champions of the world

I've taken my bows
And my curtain calls
You've bought me fame and fortune
And everything that goes with it
I thank you all
But it's been no bed of roses no pleasure cruise
I consider it a challenge before the whole human race
And I ain't gonna lose
And I need to go on and on and on and on

We are the champions - my friend
And we'll keep on fighting till the end
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers
'Cause we are the champions of the world

We are the champions - my friend
And we'll keep on fighting till the end
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers
'Cause we are the champions
