12/30/14 - NNHS Newsletter - Ring Out, Wild Bells

“Year's end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on,
with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us.” 

- Hal Borland
(14 May 1900 - 22 Feb 1978)

"Alfred, Lord Tennyson is considered the most representative poet of the Victorian Age in England, and many of his works characterize the conflict between the Christian faith and the beginnings of the scientific revolution. The death of his sister's fiancé, Arthur Henry Hallam, at the age of 22 plunged Tennyson into profound shock and a lifelong struggle between faith and doubt. "Ring Out, Wild Bells," generally considered a New Year's hymn, is taken from the 106th Canto of In Memoriam, Tennyson's monumental elegy to Hallam that was published in 1850, the same year that he was appointed Poet Laureate."

From Kitty Dichtel Heffington (Ferguson HS - '73) of VA - 12/28/14 - "David Wilsted obituary":


I don't know where he went to high school.

I know that Robert Burns ('71) and his sisters were all connected to NN High School though.

David is Cindy Wilsted Burns' (Robert's widow) brother.

Hopefully this all makes sense.

I don't know how "far" you like to carry things out, but just in case.. I wanted to send it your way.

I hope to meet you sometime! I know that your big reunion is coming up next year. You really do provide a wonderful community service!

Again.. I thank
  Marty (Whitmore) and   David McCoy (both '67) and John ('62) and Gwen (Howard) Holland for telling me about and showing me your newsletters!


   Thank you, Kitty! I'm sorry this took me so long; I'm pleading diminished capacity:

  From Marty Whitmore McCoy ('67) of VA - 12/29/14 - "David Wilsted":

Just saw the obit -   Richard (class of 67) was David's brother and since David was 62 - he graduated from high school after 1967 but not sure if it was NNHS or not

Carol - I am sure you already have all this information and I am behind -- take care :-) Marty

   No, actually, Marty, I am still extremely foggy from all the meds, so I appreciate it a great deal! Thanks so much!

   It took me several days, but I've finished this at last:

  From Sheila Smith Moler ('64) of FL - 12/29/14:

Dear Carol: 

Yes, I'm still here, but just barely.  We both went back to the doctor today, seems we've been suffering from the same stuff you guys in NC have!  The ER on the 19th declared us stricken with the flu, which obviously has morphed into bronchitis (plus other extras) now.  We're on a round of antibiotics, steroids and painkillers----Christmas was lost somewhere in the shuffle along with at least a week that I have no memory of anything but pills, soup and bed. 

Thank you for contacting me on _____'s behalf.....I will email her right away.  She, _____ and    Elizabeth Tedder ('65 / '68 - of VA) were neighbors in Copeland Park when I was about three!  Amazing that I can remember stuff from that long ago, but last week is a mystery!  I hope you and Paul and daughter are on the road to recovery, which I hope we can find without taking a wrong turn!  I don't know how you keep up with the newsletters being so ill....You're amazing girl!! 

Thanks for all you do......Sheila

   Thank you so much, Sheila! I'm always delighted to be able  to reconnect old friends!

   I'm so sorry to hear you've been sick with this dreadful holiday-robbing nonsense, too, though! I think it's possible that I'm much improved and it's only the extra-heavy-duty couch medicine still leaving me spending almost all of my time in bed with my mind in such a stupor that I can't even follow simple crochet directions. When I try to wean myself from it, though, my cough plus the pain in my left lung return, so I guess I'll just try to "be patient and take my medicine." My sister     Eleanor (Buckley Nowitzky, the Best Dressed Girl in the Class of 1959) is vastly improved (which I find astonishing as she was much sicker than I), but I've just learned that my cousin       Cheryl (White Wilson - James Blair HS / John Marshall HS - '64 of VA) also has bronchitis. What's going on, anyway?!?

   Get well soon, Lady!

          From My #2 Son, Brent Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL - '90) of LA - 12/27/14 - "Harty Missouri Bootheel Chili":


Here is my refined chili recipe. I figured it was inspired by our ancestors, so I named it Harty Missouri Bootheel Chili. It is pretty good if I do say so myself...enjoy!

I also attached the Vann Family Texas Chili recipe, and a watered down version I called the Huber Kid Chili

with love

   Thank you, Brent! These sound delicious! (Or, ya' know, they WOULD sound delicious were my stomach not so indisposed by illness! )

  From Judy Phillips Allen ('66) of VA - 12/29/14 - "Sure hope you can open this and watch it":

Ah! Those holiday dinners.

Great video...

     Thanks, Dearest Judy! How delightful!

    From My Grandson, Joseph Harty, of UT - 12/29/14 - "Dalek Relaxation Tape": - Dalek Relaxation Tape

   Thank you so much, Joe! This is fabulous! I never would have thought to seek relaxation advice from a Dalek!

       From George Helliesen ('61) of MI - 12/22/14 - "Modern Times (#6 in a series of 30)":

  How sad!            

     INDEED! Thanks, George!

From - 12/29/14:

One day, a cowboy rode into a Wild, Wild West town. The people in the town loved to play jokes on visitors.

After tying his horse to the pole outside a bar, the cowboy went in. "A cup of milk, please." he said to the bartender.

After drinking, he went out, only to find his horse missing. Knowing that the villagers did it, he went back into the bar and said to everybody, "I am going to have another drink and when I finish it, I want to see my horse outside! Or else, I will have to do what I did in Texas - HERE!"

The people were very frightened. When he finished his drink, he went outside and saw his horse. The villagers had put it back.

Curious, the bartender asked the cowboy, ”What did you do in Texas?"

The cowboy replied, "Well, I had to walk home."

Ring Out, Wild Bells

Music by Crawford Gates (b. 29 Dec 1921), 1948

Words by Alfred, Lord Tennyson (06 Aug 1809 - 06 Oct 1892), 1850

  1. Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky,
The flying cloud, the frosty light:
The year is dying in the night;
Ring out, wild bells, and let him die.

2. Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow;
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.

3. Ring out the grief that saps the mind,
For those that here we see no more;
Ring out the feud of rich and poor,
Ring in redress to all mankind.

4. Ring out a slowly dying cause,
And ancient forms of party strife;
Ring in the nobler modes of life,
With sweeter manners, purer laws.
5. Ring out the want, the care, the sin,
The faithless coldness of the times;
Ring out, ring out my mournful rhymes,
But ring the fuller minstrel in.

6. Ring out false pride in place and blood.
The civic slander and the spite;
Ring in the love of truth and right,
Ring in the common love of good.

7. Ring out old shapes of foul disease,
Ring out the narrowing lust of gold;
Ring out the thousand wars of old,
Ring in the thousand years of peace.

8. Ring in the valiant man and free,
The larger heart, the kindlier hand;
Ring out the darkness of the land,
Ring in the Christ that is to be.
