Bob Oddo
I am sad to report that beloved science teacher Bob Oddo passed away on January 29th in Myanmar where he had been living and teaching. The preliminary autopsy revealed Bob died of an aortic aneurysm, with a secondary diagnosis of COVID.

This web site probably would not exist without Oddo, who helped me get on the nascent world wide web from the office behind his classroom, and served as my advisor for my Senior Project which was Greeley's first website.

A fundraiser has been organized in his name and you can make a donation here:

November 2017 Class of '60 Newsletter
Hi all,

The latest edition of the class newsletter is available for your perusal and comment. Let me know if you encounter any difficulties or spot errors/typos, etc. It's pretty long, with inputs from 22 people and lots of pictures, so it might be slow loading, depending on your connection speed. The mobile editor is kind of touchy, so sometimes the pictures don't line up right, depending on your device. Seems to work just fine on the IPhone.

If you want to send anything in, go right ahead - I expect to do a "Page 2" for additional inputs.

Best wishes and warm season's greetings to all.

Here's the link:

Summer 2015 Class Newsletter

Anyway, here's the link - let me know if you have any difficulties. Also, if you have some input you'd like to make, just send it on to me, and I'll insert it. Heck, if I get enough I'll just add a page.... It's easy to do.

Larry Breen memorial service
This is Lisa Buitekant, math teacher at Horace Greeley. I'm writing to share that the Larry Breen Memorial service will be Saturday March 14th at 2 p.m. in the Greeley Auditorium.

Passing of Larry Breen
I write with sad news today in the life of our school district. Larry Breen, who was a math teacher at Horace Greeley starting in 1964 and then assistant principal from 1969 through 2001, passed away yesterday.

Though schools as institutions are often governed by rules and tradition, great schools are also governed by those who remember, always, that people and relationships are the reason we come to work every day. I can’t think of anyone who did more to humanize Greeley than Larry. For many of us, he is the person who welcomed us into our careers, who supported and nurtured us in his own unique way. I will remember Larry as a man who said, frequently, "I am the luckiest man in the world to have this job." The joy he found at work was and continues to be an inspiration.

We do not yet have specific details regarding services. I'm told, however, that they will be made though the Cassidy-Flynn Funeral Home in Mt. Kisco. So you can check for details on their web site: http://www.cassidyflynnfuneralhome.com/

Larry's oldest son Timothy, has asked that we share his email address with all: Timothybreen (at) mac.com

Tim also let us know that any cards sent to Larry's former address will be forwarded on to the family. So that address is as follows:

101 Carpenter Avenue
Unit A 100
Mt. Kisco, NY 10549

With deepest sympathies to all who are grieving today,

Rachel Falconer update
Hi, I just thought I would pass along my contact address, since I've recently moved to a new position at Lausanne University in Switzerland. There's also a link to my web-page if anyone is interested in finding out what happened to me.

I graduated from Greeley class of 1980. I still remember and am grateful for the great atmosphere and first rate teaching at HGHS, especially the classes with all my English teachers, with Dr O'Neill in French, Mr Marasco in music and Mr Tucci in art. And a wonderful biology teacher whose name I forget (but I still remember his lessons).

best wishes,

Prior to his 2010 death, Knox had published Kurt Vonnegut first in Colliers. Knox's papers are archived at NYU library, Washington Square. He is a legend in publishing as many of his famous authors have attested. His wellknown "crusty personage" developed at Greeley stayed with him through his career.

Linking Horace Greeley High to Normandy, France
Fellow alumni of the "Old Guard" (students at the old school, now Bell Middle School)

It is not often that we have the opportunity to take part in international, inter-scholastic academia concerning our own high school..... 70 years after graduation, June 23, 1941.

Here's how it happened.

June, 2009, was the 65th Anniversary of the Normandy Invasion and I went back to the site for the third time. During the first week of June, Normandy traditionally celeb rates with ceremony and re-enactment. Sadly, I found no other returnees from my unit but the week was enlivened by an invitation to speak to students at St Lo's Bon Sauveur School. St Lo was 90% destroyed as the allies broke out and headed toward Berlin and the students in my group were eager to learn about those days from others than their grandparents and their text books.

The faculty hosts were most hospitable, the event culminating with a catered lunchof Normandy cheese, agricultural delicacies and of course, French wine to top it all.

After lunch a tour of a re-built St Lo celebrating again the removal of the Nazi invaders was an unbelievable experience. In Normandy, D Day week is like a series of New Years Eves!

The instructor at the French school and I have stayed in contact via e-mail and he recently asked if I could find an American high school French instructor whose class would "pen pal" across the Atlantic. Remembering our French teacher, Miss Malachard, who would marry eventual HG Principal, Donald Miles, I called HGHS and left my proposal with a most interested switchboard operator.

The next day, Ms. Sarah Mondale, Greeley French department, called to learn more about the proposed St Lo-Chappaqua student connection!

Right now the Greeley kids are learning more about Normandy and the St Lo kids are becoming experts in the history of Horace Greeley and the Town of New Castle.

Stay well, Best Regards,

Don Reynolds '41

Debbie (Gillett) Hermansen - HGHS 1990
It is with a heavy heart that I share the news of Debbie's death after a seven year battle with breast cancer. She was the bravest person I have ever met.

Debbie Gillett Hermansen, age 40, died peacefully on Monday, August 15, 2011 surrounded by her family in her favorite place, Deer Isle, Maine. She was born May 21, 1971 in Mount Kisco, N.Y., the daughter of Ken and Sally Gillett. Debbie was raised in Chappaqua, N.Y. She graduated from Horace Greeley High School in Chappaqua, and Connecticut College as a member of the Class of 1994. She married her high school sweetheart Eric William Hermansen on April 27, 1996 in Elmsford, N.Y. For the past thirteen years they have been residents of Bethel, and have spent their summers on Deer Isle. Her love, kindness, and energy were amazing and boundless. In addition to being a devoted wife and mother, she was a role model to all. Her passion was her family, followed closely by her wonderful friends. She inspired all who knew her with her spirit, strength, and courage, especially during her valiant battles with cancer, both as a child and over the last seven years. Debbie lived her life to the fullest and always reached out to others. Before having children of her own, she taught preschool and kindergarten in Chappaqua. She then volunteered in her children's classrooms and parent-teacher organizations. She was never far from a child and always had their best interests at heart. She loved sharing her talents and creativity with those around her by teaching both children and adults alike how to make her original crafts, such as jewelry and note cards. Debbie was a dedicated member of many clubs and organizations. She was an active member of The First Congregational Church of Bethel, and The Sunset Congregational Church on Deer Isle. She was never happier than when participating with her family in activities at the Island Country Club and the Deer Isle Yacht Club. A founding member of the "Pink Ladies" Relay for Life Team of Bethel, she helped raise record-breaking funds for the American Cancer Society. In recognition of her perseverance and courage, she was once named the Honorary Chairman of the Relay. Words cannot express how much she will be missed by her close-knit family, extended family and friends, and the communities in which she lived. She is survived by her husband, Eric, and her three beloved children, Timothy William, Allison Elizabeth, and Amy Caffee Hermansen. She is also survived by her devoted parents, Ken and Sally Gillett of Newtown, and Deer Isle, ME, as well as her sisters, Patty Gillett Elliott of Columbus, OH and Jean Gillett Gresham of Guilford, as well as many nieces, nephews, and cousins. Two memorial services are planned to honor Debbie's life. The first one was Friday, August 19, at the Sunset Congregational Church on Deer Isle, Maine, and the second will be at the First Congregational Church of Bethel in Bethel on Saturday, August 27, 2011. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be sent in her name to Ann's Place Cancer Support Center, 39 Old Ridgebury Road #17, Danbury, CT 06819; The SCOTTY Fund, PO Box 1080, Bethel, CT 06801; or The First Congregational Church of Bethel, 46 Main Street Bethel, CT 06801.

Holly Thomas Keeble 1942-2009
Sorry to report this. Here is the email from Holly's hubby, Terry:

"Holly passed away in August after a very brief illness It turned out that she had colon cancer which she had taken to be indigestion. Holly declined medical attention and died quietly at home. If you can, please pass this news on to the class. I thought you guys were and are a great bunch when we met at the 40th. She loved you all."

Just had lunch with Anne Byrne, who I hadn't seen in at least 15 years, and Martha Holmes. Both are good - they've had their slings and arrows but soldier on, as I suspect we all do. I'm looking forward to reconnecting with many more of our classmates!

Nancy Bischoff Plamondon '75
It is with great sadness that I report the passing of Nancy Bischoff Plamondon (Greeley '75) at her home in Oak Brook, IL, yesterday morning, after a rather quick and decisive battle with cancer:


This was reported to me by Frank Fesnak.

I'll be reading in Pleasantville's Village Books on 10/24 at noon.

Russ Mance, '78
Russ Mance passed away this week. His obit was posted by his sister Kim:

Russell Kenneth Mance 48, this loving, complex and funny, son, brother, uncle, lover, dear friend and valued employee left us for a better place. Russ grew up in Chappaqua, NY and was the youngest son of J. Robert and Mary Mance of Ponte Vedra Beach, FL. He is also survived by sister, Kimberly Blauvelt (Scott) of Murrysville, PA; brother, Craig Mance (Jody) of Ridgefield, CT and brother, Doug Mance (Laura) of Tucson. They loved and admired him every day of his life. Numerous nieces and nephews and the "best thing in his life" Terri Arndt and "best friend" Roy also survive him. Russ moved to Tucson in the early 80's and filled his life with work, friends, reading, pets and gardening. He grew the best tomatoes in the universe! He could fix anything! To his family, friends, co-workers and other special people in his life, Russ was one of the most interesting and entertaining people on the face of the earth. We all know people who are much too smart and funny for their own good. Take good care of those people. They are very important in our world. Russ, we love you, we respect you, and of course, will miss you. We will bring you to life with our memories for as long as we live. Friends should stay in touch for a future gathering.

Class of 1939
My mother, Florence Carney Tully, will celebrate her 88th birthday later this month. She will be coming to New York in August for a visit. Mom graduated from Horace Greeley H.S. in 1939. I'm not sure how many of her classmates are still with us. Their 70th reunion probably wouldn't be well attended. It was a small class to begin with, and then there was WW II.... I believe the Class of '39 may have had the first yearbook. Mom has her copy. She also has a great class picture from the second grade with Mrs. Moore as the teacher. My father, mother, and sister Maureen, and I all had Mrs. Moore. My mother and I also had the same English teacher ou senior years, Miss Kurson. It's a good thing she's not alive to read this note.

Say hi
Class of 75, I have not heard from you guys since our 10th back in 85. Are we ever going to do another before we all decend into intractable senility?

I'm in Kansas, and have been here since 1977 when I went to paramedic school at the University of Kansas. Those who know me will not be surprised to hear that I had a very rewarding career of 29 years as a Firefighter-Paramedic.

I graduated from law school (University of Kansas) in 1990, and I practice with a litigation firm in downtown Kansas City, MO.

I have been married since 1993 to a Kansas girl, Wendy. We have two sons, Sam, who is 14, and Teddy, who is about to turn 9 in August. We have a 40 acre farm south of KC where we raise horses, goats, chickens, german shepherd dogs and what have you. My boys are in 4-H and scouts. Quite a change from Westchester, to say the least.

For those of you who knew my brother Skip (HGHS 1976), I am sad to say he passed away suddenly from a heart condition in 2002. We miss him. My brother Mike (HGHS 1979)is doing fine. He is practicing medicine in Olympia Washington, and married to another physician, Haleigh. They have two boys, Alex and Everett.

I'd love to hear from you.

Edwin Barlow biography
Dear Greeley Alum:

I am proud to announce the release of the biography of legendary Greeley instructor, Edwin Barlow. Ten years of research and writing has resulted in this carefully crafted tale of Mister Barlow's life before, during, and after his stint at our high school.

Here, for the first time, all your questions will be answered and all the rumors will be put to rest. What remains is the very human story behind his enigmatic persona -- of a man whose dreams and life were shattered, only to rebuild himself into a unique and legendary force in education.

For anyone interested in a story of one of Greeley's greatest teachers, of a man who epitomizes the Greatest Generation, of a journey from despair to redemption, or for anyone just interested in a great human mystery, I hope you'll visit http://www.MISTERBARLOW.com and order your copy today.

Act soon -- there is a substantial discount for Greeley Alumni.

Lawrence Meyers '84

no news...just a hello!
I stumbled upon this site and scrolled through the years of postings. I was JUST talking about Mr. Cesta (8th grade Social Studies, Bell School) tonight (after getting the link to the great Mr. Barlow book site).....and I learned here that he had passed away last year. Mr. Cesta was one of those amazing teachers that one never forgets. I wished that I had taken the time to tell him what an impact he had on me. He was college professor caliber. "Keep your wits about you!" I can just hear his voice saying that to a student as he or she was stumbling trying to get a sentence out. The energy that Mr. Cesta had as he dragged our 'team' all over Washington DC was incredible. He had such enthusiasm in the classroom - wherever that classroom happened to be.

For anyone who cares.....I'm still in Vermont (Rutland), married to Don, a (now) retired firefighter and we have one son, Brayden (7). I work at his school, do a TON of volunteer work, work retail at Pico in the winter - for the pass :), and still dabble in market research work and jewelry-making.

Rob Bliss (1981) is the Asst. Superintendent in the same school district..so I see him often.

Brother, Brit (1986) left NYC (he and I drove out west in late Feb . 2007) for Venice Beach, CA...and loves it. He's writing and directing. It's a bit ironic that he's in So. Cal now and I was out there in college at Pepperdine .

Dad and I flew out to LA in August to help Brit celebrate his big 4-0....with a house-full of his CA friends and some NY transplants including another Greeley A lum, Victoria Fisch. A fun time was had by all.

Looking forward to catching up with anyone!

Songs on YouTube
Hi everybody! I wanted to let you know that my musical partner Theresia Bothe & I have posted some videos & slideshows of our songs on YouTube. They are a mix of folk/pop, jazz standards and classical. If you're interested, I would suggest starting with: http://youtube.com/watch?v=mKQTWV31Si8 From there, you could click on 'bothecroton' if you'd like to see more. With greetings to you all, Peter

Even More Marvelous, Wonderful Baby News...It's a Boy!
Newly weds, Matthew Elliot Kurlander and his wife Christine Rebecca Lankenau Kurlander (Nightingale '92) welcomed their first baby; John Elliot into the world on August 1, 2008.

The baby was born by biological conception.

Perhaps you remember Matthew, who graduated with the class of '92. Without any doubt the greatest Tennis player to ever grow up in Chappaqua, he now directs every Nike Tennis Camp in the country, helping administer the next generation of American Tennis players, gifted or not talented.

Matthew and Christine's gorgeous baby arrived at 8 pounds and 1 ounce, the exact same weight as the Prince Heavyweight 03 Speedport Platinum OS+ pro tennis racket with the Air Bridge Twin Morph Mega Yoke used by noneother than USTA #94 ranked, Filippo P. Volandri. Coincidence? don't be absurd.

Matthew's proud parents celebrated the birth of their Grandson with some fresh picked lemons.

May the Christian God, the Jewish God, the Catholic God and several other Gods and other mythical creatures bless their new family for a long, healthy, and happy life together.

Chicken Fat
Hey, Class of '80! If you had Mr. Baker for gym at Grafflin, you MUST remember the "chicken fat" song! It was part of the President's Fitness Program. I heard it yesterday, on NPR of all places, for the first time in over 30 years and it brought back a rush of memories for some very good years. Class of '80 check it out on YouTube - Dinah Shore Nanette Fabray Meredith Willson's "Chicken Fat". This, and a few other renditions, are sure to make you smile! What a blast from the past.

Does anyone have "Anything Goes"?
I was just thinking about our senior year musical and the fact that I never got to watch it..Did anyone make a video of it? I'd LOVE to borrow it..Or I'd be happy to paypal you some cash if you would make and mail me a copy. THANKS in advance!!

Alumni Directory Needed
If anyone has the 2007 Alumni Directory and is willing to sell it or lend it out for an extended period of time, I would be extremely grateful!!!!!

Fun News: Classmate in film
Although we both left Greeley mid-stream to go to a private school, I recently stumbled upon a film from Netflix with a fellow 1976-7 Greeley classmate Meg Arader in it which I thought would be fun for others to see as well. It is seriously grade-B in nature, but its always fun to be in a movie as well as seeing a friend in one so I didn't think she'd mind my mentioning it so ... enjoy! Film: "Acne" year of release: 2000

hello? Is this mic working?
Hi. Hello, yeah, ok.

Jeff Jain here, ....huh?.... ok, yeah, sorry. ....Hi, Jeff here from 1987.
Um, yeah, doing brain numbing study on ...its going to sound wierd...on how to help coal miners in China.
Ok, I left school and went to the dessert and found the Bahai Faith, then went for three years into the Amazon to do public health work with Indigenous people, then tried to get back together with the high school girlfriend again, and (sigh), well then that went south, and I went back to Woods Hole (I started on Cape Cod, and went to high school in Chappaqua, the seeming reverse of many alum) worked in construction. Got to remodel a Frank Lloyd Wright in Woods Hole in sight of the Vineyard. Spent most of a winter on staging in the snow watching the island and the seals. Built a Japanese boat house, and a post and beam barn in the pines during January 2002. Beauty.
Dreams of China, so went to China, and another Bahai project brought me to the most polluted city ON EARTH for three years where I raised my baby daughter doing an educational project which is now winning all sorts of kudos and awards for empowering Junior Youth to become involved in social action and change. Learning Chinese is a very good idea, a fun language, and Chinese country people are free from deceit. Beautiful people.
Now I find myself in Perth Australia expecting a son in June, and wishing I had made the 20th anniversary last year. My wife is a former UN consultant, and Zhong Guo Tong (China expert) with 20 years of China experience.
I am doing grad work in Public Health with focus on Occupational Health and Safety with an eye toward consulting with Chinese officials in the future for Shanxi province to pull their socks up. Man, more people die in their mines than die in any other occupation on earth.

Perth is a beautiful respite. I have a pool, its salt water, and that is nice.

I am working in carpentry, and helping a friend break his company doing grey water remedation into the USA, but I have no idea how to start. But it is fun saving water. Its good. Water will be certainly a concern, in a future so unclear, it is with certitude one can say water will be important. (ok, AND art).

My next plan is to make LOTS of money. I have done everything but.

Life is good. Hope you are happy. Thanks for distracting me from boring study for half an hour. This was good. Lets do it again. did you read Dan Boyd's thing? Its like fifteen years old, but google it--1987 horace greeley--he hits so much on the head about where we were.

House for Sale
We are moving (within Chappaqua) and our house just went on the market.

Mr. Cesta
Thanks to Michael Cesta for posting about his father's death. Mr. Cesta's 8th-grade Social Studies course was the most fun course I've ever taken, and it has stayed with me ever since. Mr. Cesta was learned, compelling, and kind. I teach in law school now, and often ask myself "What would Mr. Cesta do?"

I'm married and living near DC, and have a 9 y/o boy and 6 y/o girl.

Wedding Announcement
Jennifer Stromberg '92 recently got married to Alex Butson of Brooklyn in Marco Island, Florida. The beach wedding was attended by fellow Quakers Mitch Greenberg '92, Steph Sobers '92, Susie Sklar '92, Dan Weissledder '92 and, of course, Vinnie Tavolacci '90. No, Vinnie doesn't still drive that same '91 Silver Saab.

Passing of Carmen Cesta
I want to let the Greeley Community know of the passing of my Dad on Novvember 17, 2007, Carmen Cesta whom many of you had at Bell School. I would say his work with students was the focus of his life.

Hi everyone -
I swung by this website look up an email address, and I figured I might as well say hello while I am here! My husband Scott and I live in San Fran these days, and recently had our first baby, Zoe, born on July 4th. I hope everything is well with everyone!

back in NY
after a long trip i'm finally back in NY for a spell and looking forward to seeing some of those ole faces...cheers! b

Seeking Any Classmates
I am trying to get in touch with any HGHS Classmates '58 to get info on a reunion. I have moved a couple times and have lost track of class news.

Class of 1960 Newsletter
Once again, a new class newsletter is inflicted upon you. This is the "provisional" version, and a work in progress. If you sent me something and I left it out, or if I got something wrong, or if you want to get a new item in, by all means send it to me and I will act immediately.


Read All About It!
NewCastleNOW.org Wants YOU in Its Pages.

With grant money from the University of Maryland, we three women are starting up an online newspaper for New Castle. In our grant application to "New Voices" J-Lab program, we proposed: "http://NewCastleNOW.org/ will be a source of current and background information on community issues, easily accessible to all citizens, as well as a forum in which to collect and share opinions." But we have even more in mind.

We launch http://www.newcastlenow.org on Friday, October 5, 2007, and will publish weekly thereafter. We want very much to hear from you Greeley graduates (visit our "sample" site and see far right column, Mac Bowen's "Coming at You from Ghana." We want to hear your accounts of the paths you took, the jobs and adventures you've had, what you're doing next. We're looking to include your voices in our (paperless) pages over the weeks and months, as stand-alone pieces or in installments like Mac's.

Some of you might have ended up doing something you never dreamed would interest you when you were in high school. Some of you might be doing exactly what you knew you always wanted to do. You might wish now that you'd paid closer attention to one subject or another when you were in high school, or believe now that you were absolutely right not to pay very close attention to it.

We're curious about you ourselves, plus we think it will be helpful to young people still within our K-12 world to hear from you what life is like out there - think of it as a kind of community service from afar.

Please write us with your stories or story ideas.

Mr. & Mrs. Matthew Elliot Kurlander
On Saturday, the fourth of August, in the year of our Lord: Two Thousand and Seven at Clermont State Historic Site in Germantown, New York; Matthew Elliot "Pecker" Kurlander (class of '92) married his once and present love, Christine Rebecca Lankenau on a green bluff overlooking the majestic Hudson River.

The Best Man and in many ways, the best of us all: Stephen Alec Weinberg, also of the class of '92, used nothing less than mutant-like agility to oversee and instruct the wedding. Matthew first met his bride while attending the Horace Greeley High School and fifteen years later reunited with her to all of our benefit. The ceremony also saw fellow Greeley alums: Levi Sokol, Mara Curtis, and Dave Seeve.

And now, let us hold hands, bow our heads, close our eye lids, and say out loud or to your self: A Shaker Hymn

'Tis the gift to be simple, 'tis the gift to be free,

'Tis the gift to come down to where we ought to be,
and when we find ourselves in the place just right,

'Twill be in the valley of love and delight.

When true simplicity is gain'd,
To bow and to bend we shan't be asham'd

To turn, turn will be our delight,
Till be turning, turning we come round right.

The Quakers would be proud or not.

Frank Keiper
Our friend and instructor, Frank Keiper, passed on this Sunday.

Moved to Florida
I don't know if anyone remembers me. I graduated in 1968. I was wondering if there was ever a High School Reunion for our class. I moved to Florida and I'm currently in school to become a Medical Secretary. I retired from Robert E. Bell school in 2005. I'd love to e-mail my class mates and just catch up in general. Thank you Donna (Polcari) Manzares.

My new position
I recently joined Murray Hill Properties, a commercial real estate firm in NYC and will be focusing on office leasing. If any of my fellow 1976 alumni are in my neighborhood, I would love to see you. We are located at 44th and 6th.

Passing of Bruce Nicolaysen and Wake Information (Dec. 28, 2006)
The following message was just passed along to me by a member of the class of 1981:

It is with a deep sense of sadness that I share the news of the sudden passing of Bruce Nicolaysen, our classmate from Chappaqua, Horace Greeley Class of 1981. Bruce lived in Poughquag, NY, Duchess County (NE of Pawling) with his wife, Katherine (Pappalardo -- class of 1990) and their three children: Kyle, Bryan and Mallory.

There will be a wake tomorrow evening, Thursday, December 28 from 7pm-9pm and a funeral service on Friday at 11:00 am at Beecher Funeral Home, 418 Bedford Road, Pleasantville, NY

The Family has asked that in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Nicolaysen Children's Scholarship Fund c/o Bank, Shapiro, Gettinger, Waldinger & Brennen, PO Box 30, Mount Kisco, NY 10549.

Our deepest sympathies go out to Katherine, Kyle, Bryan, Mallory and the entire Nicolaysen family for their loss.

The next big thing in fitness
I opened up a fitness studio for women in Millwood, NY. As my class mates would know I lost about 48 pounds in my last year of high school. When I went to College I designed a workout program that would keep me in great shape and I then shared it with the campus. All of the sudden I had regulars, coaches wanted me to teach the warm-ups for the athletes. They featured an article about it in the school news paper. It was a great program. When I graduated I was studying to go to law school and had a great paying job in Armonk. However I couldn't help but to think that there were women out there who could use my help getting excited about fitness and learning how to work with what they have to feel great and look great for their body shape. I decided to quit my well paying job and take a huge risk opening up my own studio for women. It's been 5 months now that we have been open and women are seeing amazing results. Losing 7 pounds in 2 weeks, 2 inches off hips in 3 and down a dress size in 2. They claim I put something in the air they feel so good about themselves. They tell me that their husbands that never compliment them are stopping them to tell them how lean and shapely they are becoming. Great right? Wrong. The better these women are looking the less thay are talking to their friends about it. It's crazy!! They are trying to keep me a secret! I need help getting people to come in here and see what it is all about. Start talking!

We also do HipHop Classe for girls and they are great too. I believe that it is not just about memorizing a 2 step but more about kids building their confidence, Working as a team, challenging themselves. It's great, and it's working. Girls who were shy and timid are now walking into class with their heads held high, and they're just 5 and 8 yrs of age. I also do dance parties. I, growing up as a Catholic girl in Chappaqua, went to 67 Bar Mitzvahs I feel I was invited to most of them because people knew I would be the 1st one with my socks on and on the dance floor moving and grooving. I know what I'm doing. I make these parties personal. I talk to the kids to try and gage what their dance party wonderland would look like and I give it to them with high energy, the best music around and not to be topped personalized gifts. I want people to know what their friends don't want them too. YOBO Studio changes lives. Please check out the web site http://www.GOYOBO.com.

reunion for '01?
Is there going to be a reunion for the class of 2001?

Casting for TV Land's "High School Reunion"
Hi Horace Greeley Class of '87! My name is Louis A. Caric and I am a Casting Producer for the TV Land hit show High School Reunion (formerly of the WB). We are currently in the process of searching for our new cast for our fourth season (which will center around your upcoming 20 year reunion) and I would be extremely interested seeing if you and any of your fellow alumni would be interested in participating. I've already been in contact with several of your classmates and am trying to reach out for more as HGHS fits the exact profile of the type of school that we would love to have. I would love to speak with you to see if we can make you and your classmates the next Cast Members of High School Reunion Season 4!

If you are unfamiliar with the show, it is a fairly simple premise in which we seek out members of a particular high school class and fly them to an exotic location (last season was Hawai'i) for an extended 2 week reunion. There is no competition, surprises, or created drama (TV Land is a fairly tame network and attracts a very mature audience, we run re-runs of The Brady Bunch for cryin' out loud!), it is simply the fun of putting a few characters from a past high school class back together to tell their stories and see how they have changed or even stayed exactly the same!

I can direct you to our website http://highschoolreunion.warnerbros.com/ as well for more information and the downloadable application. But please feel free to contact me, Louis A. Caric, at Louis (at) kasstinginc.com, or at 323.297.7112 if you have any questions at all. Keep in mind that we would require participation from several members of your class to make this work so I would really love to speak to you and anyone else you are still in contact with from your graduating class ASAP so if you are still in contact with any of your classmates, pass this on! I can't tell you all how excited I am about the prospect of having a school as great as Horace Greeley on board for our project. Thanks so much and I can't wait to hear from you!

Re: Looking for friends of Heidi
Heidi Campbell relative: I sent this via your email, but it bounced. So here's hoping you see this here!

My name is Gordon Macdougall (1978). I knew Heidi fairly well; she was part of the circle of friends I hung out with. I remember her as a vivacious, laid-back, wonderful human being. She had an easy laugh, and got along with just about everybody. I liked her very much.

I'm assuming this is the same Heidi you're asking about: You mention 1979, but the Heidi I knew passed away in 1978, I'm sure. As I write, I am looking at the Quaker '78 yearbook (page 245), and it has a wonderful full-page memorial. It has a beautiful big picture of her...smiling, just as I remember her always doing (I'm sure she frowned sometimes, but her smile and laugh are what stay so warmly in my memory), and a quote from her friend Angel Shaw:

"When you love someone, you tell that person how much you love them. A person does not know how deep or special that love is until you let it be known. There are times when it is hard to express your love, sometimes you never get the chance of you think that person already knows. I had a special kind of love for you. I only wish I had told you..."

I wish I could tell you some favorite things of hers, but it is too far back. And it was hard for all of us when she passed away...I might have tried to forget, tho' I never really have. She loved laughing, she loved hanging out with all of us, she loved her friends. She had the most easy-going way about her...I can't recall her upset or mean or cranky...

Heidi was one of the nicest people I knew, then, and I will always carry a piece of her in my heart.

If you want, I'll copy this yearbook page and send it along; send me an address. Also, look for Angel Shaw. She would know more, I'm sure.

New Arrival!
Scott ('90) and I are thrilled to announce that our family has grown with the birth of Jordana Biren Singer. She was born on July 24, 2006 and weighed in at 9 pounds 5 ounces. Big sister Kayla will be 3 in August and could not be more excited about her new baby sister. We are all settled in Chappaqua and have been living here for the past 3 years. Hope everyone is doing well. We would love to hear from old classmates when you're back in town so don't hesitate to look us up!

Former HGHS teacher Clare Risoli
I was hoping you could spread the word on your website. My great aunt, former HGHS teacher Clare Risoli, passed away today, Saturday after a long illness. I'm sure many of your alums will be sad to hear this. A wake and funeral are planned early this week in her hometown of Harrison, NY. More details should be available in The Journal News on Monday.

Thank you,
Rick Carpiniello

school directory
I have purchased an alumni directory in the past and it had many more people's information than I could find on this Greeley site. It was fun to see all the names from so many classes and the updated information.
I would say if a person has not purcased one of these books in the past, I reccomend it. For 78 dollars, one time may be enough. :)

Harris Request for Info
Harris Direct wants to confirm information for their directory. Once my info was confirmed they wanted me to purchase the directory at about $76 per copy either in book form or on CD-ROM.

Harris Connect Directory Update
I recently received a postcard from Harris Connect telling me that they're updating their alumni directory and that I should call them at 1-800-546-2557 to make sure that my contact and personal information is all up-to-date.

I've never actually seen their book and would of course much rather everyone use this site to get in touch with their classmates, but those of you who are interested may want to give Harris a call.

I recently stumbled across the alumni website to find all the postings from people who graduated long ago. Well I'm going to change that, and say hi to my fellow '01s, and everyone else I knew from my time at Greeley. As for me, I graduated from Connecticut College in May 2005, and in September I left for a small island located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean to begin my 2-year committment as a Peace Corps Volunteer. I am on the island of Pohnpei in the Federated States of Micronesia. My main job is to teach reading and writing to 8th graders, and I'm trying to take on some side projects as well. If anyone else has done or is currently in the Peace Corps, I'd like to hear about your experiences. I'd also like to share mine more in depth with people who are interested, so feel free to e-mail me. lanna.semel (at) gmail.com. I hope everyone is happy and healthy.


Looking for Nancy Hoeft

An Outlaw Leaves Us
On November 20th, 2005, Robert "Bobby Mac" McKinley passed away. He suffered a heart attack while selling jewelry down on the island of St. Thomas. He struggled with his demons for many years and they finally caught up with him. He had a big heart and I am proud to call him my friend! From the song by the Outlaws "Freeborn Man", "Home was on his back, he knew every inch of highway, every foot of railroad track." He will be missed....

Looking for friends of Heidi
My name is Chrissy (Campbell) Miller and this is not about me. I am looking for anyone from Greeley that can help with a project. It is a scrapbook of memories for my son, about his aunt Heidi Campbell. She went to Bell and was at Greeley in the fall of 1978. She passed away in the winter of 1979. My son asks about her alot. "What was her favorite ice cream flavor.", or "her favorite color", his list can be endless at times, and to be truthful, I was very young and did not know her as a friend would. So if you , or anyone you might know has any information that I could us to create a memory for my son it would mean alot. Thank you for any infromation you may have.

Miss Risoli
Hi everyone. I am the nephew of former HGHS English teacher Clare Risoli. I was alerted of the posting of her "marriage" to teacher Al Damon. I want to let you all know that Clare did not marry Al Damon. She tells me that Mr. Damon's wife is also named Clare, and that she also was an English teacher.

If anyone would like to drop a line to Miss Risoli, please do so to this address:
The Homesteads at Newtown

-Or you can email me (and I will forward your message) at rcarpiniello (at) juno.com

Inspired by Cain and Abel, this is the story of a brother, desperate for success and eager to prove his manhood.

Thanks in advance- hope everyone is doing well.

good memories
I taught English at Greeley from 1975-80 and married Larry George, the shop teacher. The only Greeley student with whom I am in touch is Matthew Arkin '78. I would love to know where Liz Bresler is since I still tell my classes in upstate New York about her hilarious put-down of Matthew when I taught The Sun Also Rises in about 1976. I have great memories of teaching at Greeley and as I approach retirement, I think of my many wonderful students from long ago. Long term memory is WAY better than short-term!

Baby in my life
Hi my name is Lyrica Crookshank. My name as you all knew me was Morgese. This October 2005 I will be having a special person in my life. I am going to have a baby. My husband and I are extremly excited. Feel free to say hi to me whenever you like. Hope everyone is happy and well.

Claire Risoli and Al Damon
Writes Janet Lane '68: "I did find out that Claire Risoli, my former English teacher, married Al Damon, the infamous Math teacher for whom I baked at least 50 batches of cookies! She must be a great cookie baker to have caught his eye!!!" Update: Michael L. Cesta, MD informs us that Al Damon was a History teacher, not a Math teacher. Another Update: Miss Rosoli's nephew informs us that while Mr. Damon did marry an English teacher named Clare, it was not Miss Risoli. We're sorry for the confusion.

i'm alive
anybody have ay word about Greeley grads immediately before WW2?

death of mr visca
Was just surfing and read that dear Mr Visca died this week...
what a dear sweet man..made music at Greeley a pleasure and a joy
He had been attending our "faculty reunions"..and I believe he was at our last

Just checking
I am just wondering if anybody out there remembering me. I attended HG when I was 19 and learned English there... I would like to hear from anyone ... I have very fond memories of teachers and students... but no names.

The Deep Dig is a short film I wrote, am producing and acting in. The website is a source of information for those who want to get involved or just stay updated on production. Micah Green (HGHS '90) is providing us with some music and Paul Wilamoski(HGHS '90) is bringing his film background to the dig. It takes a village to make an independent film, so if you have any ideas, please let me know! Thanks.

Updating the '77 directory
I am currently trying to update the contact information that appeared in the 25th reunion directory for the class of 1977. If you would like me to update your information, especially your email address, please contact me at varangis (at) starpower.net. I have gotten back many of the emails I sent as "undeliverable." If you haven't received an email directly from me it means that the address I have for you is incorrect. Hope to hear from many more '77 alums!

Teaching Science and Consulatant to NASA/JPL

Another Girl!

Screenplay takes top 3 in Project Greenlight
This past summer my screenplay "Wildcard" placed in the top three in Project Greenlight. I came *that close* to winning. I flew to LA, met Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, and had a Hollywood adventure. In addition I got an agent and an attorney, and it looks like my script will be sold to Dimension Films! So life is good for me on the creative side... --Marshall

new home
My family including wife, daughter and parents have moved to the Twin Cities. I am no longer working in clinical medicine but have become one of the (hated) medical directors of a huge insurance company. Would love to hear from any of you out here.

Our New Princess
We would like to announce the birth of our second daughter Skylher Brooke Reyes. She was born on April 9th 2004 weighing 7lbs 15oz. Her big sister Samantha loves her so much, sometimes to much. We are all adjusting to our new addition.

Personal Update
To my class of 80 friends, I now work for the Master Builders Association in Bellevue, WA, the largest local homebuilder assn in the nation.

Passing of Charles Tetelman
Charles Tetelman, former Dean of Students at the Bell School, passed away on June 3, 2004 after a battle with cancer. He was 83 years old. A private service has been held.

checking in
It was good to see Tony Woodbury's note, although I was under the impression that "Chatino" was an internet language. I must get a new dictionary.

It was also good to see the website from Jim McKean. He is starting to look like Queequeg, the part he played in the movie musical "Moby" we made for Mr. Gross' English class. I'm surprised that movie hasn't made it to Turner Classic Movies, especially with its classic scene of Janice Figueroa (as Capt Ahab) being attacked by an umbrella!

It's too bad the footage of "Giants In The Earth" was lost. My only starring role... (Per Hansa, not "The Giant").

I've been living in Maryland since 1976, and we're bracing for the cicadas. I have my industrial strength flyswatter at the ready. I understand they are a delicacy (I'll take your word for it), so if anyone wants a shipment let me know. My windshield seems to attract them.

Hi 71-ers...
Hi Barbara, Sue, Jon, Jim, Jay, Dottie, and all you other 71-sters who have posted here...nice site! I've been in Austin, teaching linguistics at the U of Texas for these last..24 years (yikes...). My latest project is training and working with speakers of Chatino, an indigenous language of Oaxaca, Mx, to document their language. Love to hear from old friends! --Tony

Just Looking
Maybe I'm regressing, I'm not sure. Recently I went to see Jeff Rothman's Band play in NYC and I started thinking that I spent 11 years with many of you and yet I dropped off the face of the earth after Graduation. I miss a lot of you. I was wondering how you're doing. I'm married now and have a five year old daughter named Emma. I do freelance photography and live in Valhalla. If anyone is out there (Amy Singer, Katie Clippard, Laurie Netto and others) I'd love to say hello and see how you're all doing. E-mail me and we can regress together.

School Ring Found
Sorry to intrude on your alumni page as I am not actually a graduate of the school. About 5-6 years ago I found a Horace Greeley High School ring and I have been searching for the owner so I can return it. The ring has a blue stone, graduation year of 1972. Inside it is inscribed with 'ANDI'. If anyone knows who this ring belongs to please contact me at the email address listed. Thanks.

Followup: Andi Weiss '72 has been contacted. Hopefully the ring has found its way back to its owner.

I got married!
I married Eric Conner on November 15th in Wilmington, DE. Eric and I met at Penn in Spanish class, but took almost 9 years to actually start dating. At the wedding were many Greeleyites including '92ers Kathy (Tilzer) Simon (bridesmaid), Jessica Anenberg, Marni (Wasserman) Bernstein, Judy (Levy) Battaglia, Eric Sharfstein and Brad Corr ('98). And of course my sister, maid-of-honor, Rachel Zaslansky ('94) and brother, groomsmen Michael Zaslansky ('98). Eric and I live in Los Angeles and are always look forward to our East Coast friends coming for a visit.

Great Website
I just happened to notice this website for the first time today. Great idea; kudos to its creator. It's fun to see what everyone is up.

As for me, since our tenth reunion, I have been busy with the following.... Shortly thereafter, I took a sabbatical from my work as an employment attorney and embarked on a journey to Vietnam to teach English. It was very rewarding experience that started as a six-month teaching engagement and ultimately extended into a 13 month stint and a locally published ESL book. In early 1997, I got married (despite my mother's repeated desires, we don't have kids yet. Fortunately, my sister took much of the heat off by having two sons). In early 1998 I started teaching indoor Spinning (stationary cycling) as a hobby (I had picked up distance bicycling when I moved to California in 1992). In 2001, I set the then-existing Guinness World Record for indoor stationary cycling as part of a charity fundraising effort for Special Olympics. At the end of 2002, I left the partnership of Littler Mendelson (in San Francisco) and relocated to Klamath Falls, Oregon where my wife and I work for JELD-WEN, inc. Although she still sorely misses the food and shopping of San Francisco, the small-town feel of Klamath Falls sometimes brings back fond memories of Chappaqua.

I noticed a number of postings about our 20 year reunion (wow, that's a pretty big number, it feels like it should be appreciably less). I am happy to assist with the organizing effort although I may be somewhat handicapped in what I can do because I am so far away. I had a lot more fun at our 10-year reunion than I had expected and think a 20-year reunion would be even better, particularly if the turnout were good. Is somebody coordinating this? If so, let me know how I can help.

Any '96ish people in LA?
That is class of '96, not 96 year olds. I just moved out to Los Angeles about 2 months ago. If you are in the area and want to catch up, drop me an email.

Michael Suchman on stage at Carnegie Hall
Many of you may remember me as a Walter Schalk dancer. Well I am still dancing. This will be my 4th time on Carnegie's stage. I am currently on the dance team of the New York City Gay Men's Chorus. Our next concert is December 12, 2003. The show is called, A Twisted Holiday. The music will be new and different arrangements of familiar holiday songs. The is going to be fantastic!!! I encourage everyone to come.

For more information about the concert and the NYCGMC in general visit http://www.nycgmc.org.

So, to answer the question of how do you get to Carnegie Hall...Take Walter Schalk.

High Five
I'd like to give a shout-out to Emily Schwarz! Bet you didn't think I'd do it, didja?

Congrats to Elena Vassallo!

Saw this in the NY Times from this past weekend... Congrats to Elena Vassallo (Class of 1994) and Dave Becker (Class of 1993) on their recent wedding! :)

Peter Sherry wins Marine Corp Marathon
Thought this was great news to post online. Peter Sherry (Class '86) won the Marine Corp Marathon in Washington DC. Read all about it. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A19994-2003Oct26.html Nice work Peter! Congrats!

Interested in seeing a fellow classmate
Many of my classmates of 1980 may not remember me, I was not popular. I often visit this web-site in hopes of seeing a message posted by someone I knew back then. I was not very popular back then but was "pick" on allot for being gay. Funny, I didn't realize that "outing" myself back then would have any negative effects on my future life. I just wanted to post this message to anyone out there from class of '80 who knew me or knew of me or even yet made fun of me to realize that I made it Ok and went on with my life.

I am a successful Accountant working for an Architectural firm for the past 15 years. Doing very well and very happy. I live in the Boston area now for the past 20 years. When I look back at my High School Days, (Drama club, Spring Finale and Senior Musical) I think of difficult times trying to adjust to a changing society. I know times have changed (thank God) but I wanted all who cared to know that I am doing fine, and don't hold any grudges...

Take care...

If anyone knows the where abouts of Art Mahon let me know, thanks!

Greg Harr - a STAR!
Did anyone catch Greg Harr, Class President of the class of 1991, on Sex and the City a couple of weeks ago? For those who watch the show, it was the "Shoes" episode. In the beginning of the show, Miranda convinces her coop board to allow a new applicant into the building. Greg plays an upper east side yuppie who comments on the applicant. Congrats Greg- you have come a long way from "Anything Goes"!!

Greetings from the Republic of Boulder
Great website. I have lost track of all of my class (1971) and would love news of old friends. After 20 years teaching Spanish in Maine, I'm now semi'retired and my husband and I moved to Boulder, CO three years ago.

Newest member of HGHS class of 2021!
Scott ('90) and I wanted to share some good news as 2003 has been an incredibly exciting year for us. In the spring I earned my Ph.D. in clinical psychology. Soon after we bought a house in Chappaqua and made the move back home! Most importantly, on August 21, 2003 our beautiful daughter, Kayla Biren Singer, was born. We are just ecstatic with joy about our little wonder! Hope everyone is doing well - we'd love to hear from fellow classmates when you're back in town!

Just found the website and wanted to send out a HELLO to anyone I haven't seen for a while. Take care!!


I just wanted to drop a line. Sorry, Alisa I've not written in 2 years. I've been busy. I've gone back to school to finish my BA. My BA will be in Criminal Justices. My next goal will be Law school in 2005. As for now I'm working and going to school. My boyfriend and I have been together 5 years and counting. Summer was busy, but in the long it's been fun. If anybody wants to drop a line please do. I want to know how everybody is doing. Kim Russell I got your e-mail. Sorry I never wrote back. I wish everybody a great rest of the summer.

Megan Ingram Abbott
My husband, Richard, and I are pleased to announce the birth of our daughter, Megan - 13 March 2003. She was welcomed home by her 2 year old brother Aiden. Looking forward to the 20th reunion!

Just found this website! Was very interesting to scroll through the past years. Moved away in 1976 and now living in Greenville SC. I have lost touch with quite a few people. If anyone has info on Elaine (Stoia) Feldman or Renee Abbott please e-mail me. Any news on a 30 year (that sounds so old) reunion? Went to the 20th and it was fun seeing so many after being away for so long. Thanks for a great website!

PLease to anounce the brith of Elizabeth Fall Cesta on March 1, 2003

Number 3
Just a quick update - My wife and I are happy to announce the birth of Talia Margit Rockmacher - May 28, 2003. Talia was welcomed home by big brother Zach (9) and big sister Sara (5). We live in Swampscott, MA. I am looking forward to attending the 20th reunion in 2 more years.

Ode to being "Hip"
Hi- just thought I'd drop a note to anyone who might remember me. On April 30th, I had my right hip replaced here in Boston. All went extremely well and I'm recuperating at home and doing my best to get off of the two pain meds they have me on. The hip replacement was needed due to the radiation damage from the cancer treatment I had starting in 6/86. I guess doctor's are happy to follow people like me as they find out what the "really long term" side effects of treatments are.

It will be nice to be able to walk without a cane and to get rid of the yellow moose that's standing on my kitchen table (pain meds can be so much fun- woo-hoo!).

See ya!

About Jay Sanders '71
Jay Sanders ('71) sent this note and for those of you in the NY area, I thought you would find it of interest:

I'll be in this show through October 16th, then I'll be rotating back and forth as my schedule permits. The plan is to switch well-known actors through a few of the roles to bring greater atention to the piece. We open later this week and the audience response so far has been tremendous! I will most likely return to the show as my schedule allows and their needs arise, and since it's right across the Village from us here, it's a great thing to be in and out of. -- Jay

Here is the show's flyer information: America has a legal system. It needs a justice system.

THE CULTURE PROJECT presents THE EXONERATED: In Their Own Words, starring Jill Clayburgh, Richard Dreyfuss, Sara Gilbert and Jay O. Sanders will lead a company of 10 in a riveting new play that tells the true stories of six innocent survivors of Death Row. THE EXONERATED was written by Erik Jensen & Jessica Blank and was directed by Bob Balaban.

It's a girl
She may be small when it comes to size...but she's the queen of the cutie pies! Kaitlyn Alexandra Lane was born May 18th at 1:45 AM, 2lbs, 13oz, 16in.

A little premature but she is doing fine. Kaitlyn is still in the NICU waiting to grow big but will be home around her due date (7/8). Donny and I can't wait to have our little girl home.

Here We Go!
Greetings from the south!...no, not Cuba...Boca Raton, but its close enough. I say we follow in the footsteps of our fore fathers (class of '90 -'91) and schedule our 10 yr. in NYC during Thanksgiving weekend '02. Lets get the ball rolling. Lots of people have flight bookings and reservations to make, including all 50 or so of us who moved out west to Boulder, Co. Start talking about that weekend, and maybe we could cause enough buzz to get something going. Mark your calendars, sync those watches. See you there!

Now in NYC
Hello out there. I'm living in NYC now with my hubby and kids, back in school at Yale getting a Ph.D in Jewish history. My triplets, Abby, Michael, and Lily just turned 8!!! My husband Bart. a Washington Post reporter, is busy on the terrorist beat. Can't believe our 25th reunion is next year. I'd love to be in touch with old friends. Take care. Tracy

Avon Breast Cancer 3-Day
Hello everyone,
In October I will be walking from Bear Mountain to Manhattan to raise money to support the fight against breast cancer. I've been training by walking 20-30 miles per week and will continue that for the next 4 months. In order to walk I have to raise $1900.00 in donations. I'm hoping some of you out there will want to support me. A few statistics:

* There are over 1 million women in America with undetected breast cancer.
* One in 9 women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime.
* This year, 500 people per day will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer.

If you would like more information, or to make a donation, please email me.
Alternatively, you can visit my homepage at:

Thank you in advance for your support! I'll be posting my progress occasionally. As of yesterday I have walked 101 miles in training. Averaging 3.5 miles per hour. The walking is wonderful, the blisters are not, but hey, it's all better than breast cancer! Please help me fight this horrible disease!!!!

Thank you for your support,
Alison May

Community For 1970s
At the 30th reunion we decided to set up an online community so we can find each other and stay in touch. We hope everyone from the class will join! Please e-mail 1970Quakers (at) communities.msn.com and we'll send an invitation right away.

I am Jennifer Webb, formerly Jennifer Coltrin. I just wanted to announce the birth of my latest. My fifth child, Jacob Ira Webb was born December 28, 2001 weighing in at 9 lbs 9oz (ouch). He is four months old now, but I just found this site! My oldest son just lost both his front teeth. He is 7. I have five children and I am running for School Board in my precinct. Who knew?

Does anyone know whatever happened to Pia Smal or Amy Gignesi?

Guess we missed our window for a 20th reunion so here's the deal with me. Did the college thing, married, kid - the whole nine yards. Live in the Washington DC area. Thinking back to those "wonderful" days in Norm Nickerson's and Ed Hart's offices, Mr. Gilson, Mr. Furey, Mrs. Wolf, Donati, Burns... and whatever happened to Charlie Byrne, Lisa Erickson, and Alison MacLean? And when did "Only the Good Die Young" make it onto the oldies station?

Hello Out There
Hey Everyone,
I don't know why, but twenty years seems like a good time to get together! Contact me if you have any suggestions.
I figure a holiday long weekend or other such time might work best?
Hope you are doing well,

any news of reunion
I like the rest of you am wondering if there is going to be a reunion for the class of 92. Maybe all of us who are wondering should put something together and put the issue to rest.

Alison Heffer

Hi and Where is the Class of '84?
Hi all: still in touch with Tania Bernath and Sue Casey, inerested in hearing from Peggy Richards. New daughter, Cecilia Kathleen, a great baby! We did name her in memory of my late, great, always a firebrand Mom. Moved to Boston worked as the Deputy Director of the Massachusetts Senate Post Audit and Oversight Bureau with Senator Cheryl Jacques and loved every minute of it. Was literally going broke doing that so went into PR, not as much fun by far, needing to get back into politics, especially with a daughter who I feel obligated to work to leave a better world than the one it looks like we're headed for. Any thoughts or news?

Chris Derby is engaged
Hey everyone-
I recently heard from Christiane Derby who graduated in the Class of 1992 and she reports that she is engaged to be married. There is no date as of yet. Congratulations Christiane

Anyone in London?
Living in London now with my new hubby and would love to know if any of my old compatriots are here as well. I'd love to get together over a pint of local brew. Give me a call! 07810-752-797. Kate Roe - Congrats on your latest triumph! Gillie - Call me god damn it! Jen Ciraldo - Where are you?

All the very best,

Liz Nash Crehan


Featuring KATE ROE '90

War Bonds explores the neglected story of women pilots and women in the army in World War II. Inspired by interviews with veterans and other research, the play evokes the spirit of the daring women who braved the prevailing attitudes of the day in order to contribute to the war effort on their own terms. No World War II story would be complete without the requisite canteen. War Bonds has its own canteen and canteen singer, who performs seven "original" World War II songs.

April 4-April 21. Thurs-Sun at 8pm. Theater for the New City is located on 1st Ave, between 9th and 10th Streets. Tkts: $10. Reservations: 212 254-1109

Looking for some of my old friends.

Back in NY
After my final bow with Walter Schalk, I moved to St. Louis for college. I stayed there (St. Louis not college) for 12 years. I moved back to NY with my partner in May 2001. We have since parted, but I am still in NY. I live in the city and would love to hear from any of my friends from Greeley, especially all of you Schalkers. Sara, Lynn, Tom, Tom, etc, you know who you are.

Speaking of Schalking, I would be remiss not to add a line about Ellen. She and I have stayed in touch and I was even in her wedding party. At the reception I was her designated dance partner (no big shock there). One person even thought I was the groom. See, all those Monday and Thursday nights in the cafeteria of Bell paid off.

Finally Married!
First of all, than you to the web master for such a great site! It will be so great finding all of my old friends at Greeley. I moved around so much after graduating that I can't even remember all of my addresses, which is probably why I missed our 10 year (or 15 if we had it) reunion.

I just wanted to announce that I marred Darren M. DeNigris on June 11, 2001 in Hackensack, NJ. We started out as friends four years earlier and it bloomed into the best relationship I've ever had. We are currently living near Hackensack, NJ with our six cats (yes, six...long story). We hope to be starting a family soon. My husband is a project manager for Avaya, Inc. and I have been working as an adjunct professor of history at the local community colleges.

It would be great to hear from anybody who knew me at Greeley (I went by KT then)! Feel free to e-mail me.

New Baby Girl
I am proud to announce the birth of my daughter Rachel Viola who was born on December 27, 2001. She joins big brother Zachary who was born in October 1999. I am working for Blue Sky Studios who just released their first animated movie "Ice Age" that will be released on March 15 so please go see it.

Free Beer for '82 Grads!!
I am the Head Brewer at a Pub In Freeport, Maine called Gritty McDuffs. I live nearby with my wife Cynthia and our 2 1/2 year old son Wade. If you are ever visiting the area drop in and I'll buy you a beer or two or...
Cheers, Greg

I am alive

We are recovering
The past few months have been brutal for my family, but thank God, we are all together and recovering. My husband Greg survived the WTC attack, escaping 11 minutes before Tower One collapsed. He lost more than a dozen friends. His story, recorded by Israeli historian Tom Segev, may be accessed through this url.... http://www.haaretzdaily.com/hasen/pages/ShArt.jhtml?itemNo=116233&contrassID=2&subContrassID=15&sbSubContrassID=0&listSrc=Y

I've just launched my website, http://www.kateroe.com.

It's generally an acting website. You can play clips of some film and TV work, see headshots, printwork, and my resume, and go to a special skills section featuring my artwork.

Check it out -- feedback welcome -- and pass it on! Thanks.

reunion news??
I just discovered this web site today..this is great! I was wondering if there was any news about a 30th reunion for the class of '72???

Just Checking In
From time to time I check this web site (which is really great...thanks Jesse)just to see if there is any news form former classmates. I love reading about what everyone is doing. So, I thought I should add my own update. I live in North Bethesda Maryland (just outside DC) and am married to Mark and we have two children. Jack is 3 and Caroline is 1. I stay home with the children and love it. I used to work at the House of Representatives with the Page Program. the Pages are high school juniors...so their antics always reminded me of Greeley days. Take care...and post some news!

A Christmas Gift
It's a BOY! Congratulations to my brother Diego (class of 1988), and his wife Rebecca on their first child. Alexander Salvo was born on December 20th at 11:44pm. He's absolutely beautiful. Congratulations again!

Greeley Grads in Washington, DC area
A few months ago, a post went up asking if there are Greeley grads in the DC area. My wife Dottie and I live in North Potomac, Maryland, with our two kids (Lauren, 5 and Mark 3). I am working at the Justice Department doing National Security Law. I'd love to hear from other Greeley grads.

i'm not famous yet...

So I popped it!
Hello everybody, especially my good buddy Noah with whom I have been conversing with over this board. Anyway, as some of you may know, I have been seeing my girlfriend for 4 years now, and the other night was our 4th anniversary, and so....I did it! I asked her to move in with me! And she said yes! What did you think I was talking about, marriage? I wish, but her parents have said she is not allowed to marry until she graduates Med. School, or else she is out of the inheritance. Just thought I would update you all on this new bit of joy in my life.

Coltrin update
I thought I'd update you on all three Coltrins. My husband, Van, and I just welcomed our second daughter, Emma Josephine, into the world on August 10, 2001. She's just as beautiful as her older sister, Alexa Michelle, who was born in July 1999. My husband and I were married in May 1998. I am a full-time mom, and Van is an engineer. He will begin law school in September with the intent to become a patent attorney.

Jennifer Coltrin Webb, class of 1989, is married to Andrew Webb, a genealogist, and is expecting her fifth child this month. Stephanie Coltrin Meyer married Jack Meyer in July 2000. They are both involved in theater in LA (no surprise to those who knew Steph).

Recent "doings"
Since my last posting to the Alumni Page I was elected President of the Lower Cape Cod Chapter (1443) of the National Association of Retired Federal Employees.

Quite recently have been involved with a Prostate Support Group (cancer survivors) that meets monthly at the new Harwich Community Center.

Any HGHS graduates who will be having prostate operations please contact me at my e-mail address given in this message.

If you are on the Cape during the Summer or just for a short visit call me up -- am listed in the Orleans Cape Cod Directory.

Elizabeth (Nash) Crehan's Wedding
A quick note to let classmates know that Liz Nash was married last evening to Richard Crehan at the Knickerbocker Club in Manhattan. After having their wedding postponed because of the events of 9.11, the celebration finally went off without a hitch. Maggie Leary and Emma Pack were bridesmaids and the ceremony and reception were stunning. Liz and Richard reside in London. Hope everyone is well.

Hey Noah!!!
Hey Noah!! Matt Gorman here, how in the H E double Hockey Sticks have you been? I've been just fine at Bucknell, but I'm almost never back in Chappaqua, so I never see any of you! How's the bowling going? Are you still striking it up? I will be back in town this Tuesday for once for Thanksgiving! Look in Ye Olde Greeley directory for my number, and maybe we could go get lunch!

Fun in the Sun
Just got back from a wonderful getaway in the Bahamas with Ali Heffer ('92). We caught some sun and got great tans. Al- We must do it again! Also wanted to say that thoughts and prayers are still going out to everyone effected by the Sept.11 tragedy. Hope everyone is as good as can be expected during these hard times...
-All my best

The passing of Mr. Taylor
Marshall Moseley '79 points us to this 1997 obituary of Charles Taylor who was a teacher and then a guidance counselor at Greeley.


Charles F. Taylor, July 20, 1997.

After a year at Bates, where he roomed with high-school classmate Edmund Muskie '36, Charles Taylor's education was interrupted by the Depression. He spent several years at Butler Hospital Nurses' Training School in Providence, R.I., and at the Payne Whitney Psychiatric Clinic in New York City. During World War II, he spent three years in Eritrea with the hospital unit of Douglas Aircraft Co., where he established a psychiatric unit and was director of the nonmedical hospital staff. After the war he earned his B.A. and M.A. degrees from New York Univ., also doing graduate work at Columbia. For 31 years he taught at Horace Greeley High School in Chappaqua, N.Y., and, in 1970, became guidance counselor. His relationships with former students continued through his retirement. Active in the community, Charlie Taylor received the first Citizen of the Year Award from the Newcastle Town Club for his work in organizing the Chappaqua Forum on American Foreign Policy. He also organized and was in charge of the first Student International Exchange at Horace Greeley, and directed the school's summer school program for six years. An officer in local educational associations, he had been a John Hay Fellow at the 1962 Colorado College Summer Institute, had taught at Colgate Univ.'s Conference on American Foreign Policy, and also lectured at Syracuse Univ. School of Journalism. He was a member and trustee of Chappaqua Historical Society, Phi Delta Kappa, a volunteer at Mount Kisco Day Care Center, and past president of Friends of the Library. Throughout his life he had traveled extensively in 50 states, Europe, Antarctica and New Zealand. In 1983 he moved to California to be near his family. He leaves daughter Shelley, grandchildren Sara and Charles, and two sisters. His wife, the former Pearl Harvey, predeceased him in 1974. A piano teacher, she also may be remembered as secretary to Dean Hazel Clark for eight years.


Hey Everyone
Hey everyone, Noah here. I haven't been in touch with that many of you, I hope everyone is great! I have been in touch with Brian Finnegan though, and he says Hi. I have been so busy with everything up at Colgate...can you believe we are graduating college? Golly! It went by faster than a pizza at a frat party! Well, I'd love to hear from you all. C-Ya!

Just looking for people!
Hey Everyone, Matt Gorman here, class of 1998. Just trying to get in touch with some of my Chappaqua buddies. Anyone seen Zach or AC, Kelly or Jesse? And where's Samuel Powers and Jason Adler been? Any help would be much appreciated!

Back in Time
For those who remember who I am. I did not go to Greeley, I went to Robert E Bell and then back to Argentina.

All I want to say is that I miss you.


Looking for Jr. Accountant
Hi, this is Mike Kagan and I graduated in 1994. I am currently working for an executive search firm called 680 Partners. Check out our site at www.680partners.com

We work with several Venture Capital Firms helping them to build up their Sr. Executive teams throughout their various portfolio companies.

Does anyone know of a Jr. Accountant that is looking for a new opportunity with one of the Private Equity firms we work with. Must have had a high G.P.A (at) School. Looking for a bright individual. Hope everyone is doing well.


Hi to everyone, I just found this site and wanted to post. I am working in DC at the National Cathedral, and recent events have me thinking of home. I hope that everyone is as well as can be expected.

All the best.

myles got married
Hi all! Just a quick note to announce that Myles Weissleder married Allison Eherenberg on Block Island, RI on Sept 9, 2001. Check us out: http://www.mylesandalli.com. We currently reside in Sausalito, CA where Myles runs a small PR and Marketing consultancy: http://www.mylermedia.com. Drop an email!

Landlocked in Ohio....
Where has the time gone? I'm married, living with two kids (Maddie and Maggie) in Cincinnati. Where is Ed O'Conner, John Barbasetti di' Prun, Alex Gjeki, Rod Finer, Andy Kemler, Stephen Skinner, and the Johnson Twins(Ron and Don)?

I'll be on TV!
Watch a repeat of Episode #215 of Ripley's Believe It Or Not, on Saturday, October 27, 2001, 10:00 a.m. Eastern on the TBS channel. I explain the "Scissors Dance," a genre that I studied in Peru. The segment is called "Face Threading," lasts just a minute or two and is in the middle of the show. Here's a teaser: "Believe it or not, during a popular cultural ritual dancers put themselves into a trance-like state, thread wires over 20 feet long through their faces and then walk back and forth!"

We're ok
I just wanted to post that both Doug and I are fine (in the wake of 9/11), since people keep asking my parents and trying to email me. We worked across the street, but were able to get out of the area before the south tower came down. Thanks to all who inquired about us. I appreciate it. :)


keeping in touch
Though I actually graduated from JFK, its the people I went to school with at Grafflin and Bell that I recall most clearly and dearly. One of my first reactions to Sept. 11 was to check the Greeley web site and to date, incredible as it seems, there are no casualties being reported. The only one I can add is that of Gary Haag, husband of Mary Roche '80, employed by a business in the WTC. I believe they have three children and a home in Ossining. Because of times like these, I am even more grateful for the years we all spent together in Chappaqua, and for the all too brief hours spent together at the reunion. Hope to see even more people at the next one! Where is John Marth? John Lowden? Betsey Oram? Jenny O'Donnell? Laurie Lopez? Kristin Fesnak? Bobby Usati? Frank Rodak? Kim Grehl? George Sabert? Peter Berg? Just to name a few... Who has an address or email for Kathy Nolan Hudson?

I'm back in Buffalo at UB (MSW in '97)working on a PhD in Social Work with a concentration on urban community rebuilding. Sometimes it's really fun; sometimes it's overwheming. Fortunately, I have a soon-to-be-four-year-old son (Noah, 10.22.97) to help me keep things in perspective! Nothing like a hearty discussion about bodily functions or Bob the Builder, or a cozy bedtime story to replant my feet firmly, and gratefully, back on the ground! Those of you with kids can relate...

Hope for peace in our world.


Living in DC area
In response to Kathy Gollogly's message:

I have been living in the DC area since moving to the area to attend law school in 1985. I live in North Potomac, Maryland with my wife Dottie, five year old daughter Lauren and three year old son, Mark. Would love to participate in an HGHS DC area reunion!

Julie's Update
Hi everyone from class of 1996! I just got back from a year working in London and now am looking for jobs in NYC so if you are in the area drop me a line. If you know of any jobs too let me know! I hope everyone is fine throughout these hard times.

Hey Everyone. Just wanted to let my long lost friends know that I am doing well, and actually became engaged this summer to my wonderful fiance, Laura. We are living in Marblehead, MA (just north of Boston), and have an April 2002 wedding planned.

I hope everyone is doing well, especially in these trying times.

Best Wishes
Hey all. I just discovered this website by accident, and was really excited to see some people I haven't heard from in years. I just got back to the States this month, after working in SE Asia for the last year. Is there any way to track Greeley Alumnus that may have been employed in the World Trade Center Buildings? Please let me know if anyone has any information. Thanks!

Here in New York
I have been living in new york for the past five years working for a childrens hospital here in the city. Just wanted to let people from the class of 92 know that many of us in new york are okay. Would love to hear from others as well

Contacting Teachers
I was just reflecting upon the notes of several people asking for contact information of elementary school teachers and I too have wanted to contact a teacher I was fond of back in second grade. It occured to me that these teachers were not only licensed, but they were likely to have earned pensions if employed for any length of time with these schools. It seems to me that finding a place where their residence is known might not be as hopeless as it first seemed. I will look into it further and check back here with what I learn.

I left after Chappaqua after seventh grade, but would be pleased to have my address included with the '77 class in some way. I tried to contact Barbara, but the e-mail was returned as unsendable. Perhaps you could try sending one to me.

I hope that my former classmates are all safe and not directly involved in any of this last weeks' horror.

My best to any and all.
Toby Everett

To the Greeley family past and present,

Sept 11 will always stay with me. Watching the towers going down was hell. My thought went to my classmates who could work in the WTC. Fear went through my body and memories of old school days at Bell and at Greeley. So if there any news of class of 92 and other classes who were working at WTC please let me know. I know we lost touch with each other, but when things like this happens. We need to know people from our past are alright. People from our past helped shape us for our life. To past friends my heart goes to you and your family in this dark hour. To the Greeley family past and present you are in my prayers . Love Annette Molenaar class of 92

World Trade Center
I was at my desk on the 13th floor of 1 World Trade when the first plane hit. I made it out safely.

My daughter, Nikki, and I would like to express our deepest sympathy to all involved in this horrible tragedy. I hope if anyone knows of any Alumni involved they would post news here. God Bless....

Haven't heard anything yet
I haven't heard of any 92 grads that were in the towers. I hope that everyone is coping as well as possible.

the day the twins fell
I graduated in 92' from Horace Greeley my travels scince then have brought me far away from my home. as well as the people in it. I would like to know if my fellow class mates were at all a direct cercumstance, how I can reach there families and express condolences. my hart goes out to everybody effected. it's the time to stand strong and together.

thank you

A new addition
My husband Gavin Fraser and I are thrilled to announce the birth of our second daughter, Lucy Beth Fraser, on May 1, 2001. She weighed in at 6 pounds, 15 ounces and was 18 inches long. Her big sister Georgia Rose loves to help out with her diaper changes, and can't wait for Lucy Beth to be old enough to play games with her.

Adam Pravda's going to Law School
Hi everyone. I don't know if anyone remembers me, but I graduated Greeley in 1992. I have just begun my first year at Brooklyn Law School. I live in Brooklyn with my girlfriend, Katherine, and thought I'd do a little representing for the class of '92. It seems there are so few of us out there. Take care.


More Sexy Fun (cont.)
I know it's not strictly alumni news, but I really couldn't resist. Be true to your school. Rah.


Greeley Sex Scandal (Part II)
I've gotten many emails about the latest Chappaqa scandal involving a stripper, members of the football team and some whipped cream. You can use your imagination, or you can read the colorful reporting in the Journal News. We could all just chalk this up to "kids will be kids" except for the fact that the parents were there watching. So, did they provide the pot?

If nothing else, we can no longer say that the era of family bonding is over.

"She was naked at the time, other than wearing boots," the DA said.


Thanks to my father, Ryan Farrell '91 and Jed Schmidt '95 (writing to us from Japan) for the links.

Catching Up
Hi! This is the first time I've visited this website - a lot has changed at Greeley! I just wondered if there were any classmates out there who would like to get in touch - I've moved so many times, I don't have many ties left with Chappaqua. If you remember me, say hello when you get a chance!

Hello From Boston!
Hello From Boston! Having just moved up here, I'm getting used to Boston traffic and the commute. Some of you may remember my rather crappy last month of high school when I had the first of many surgeries for a very rare form of cancer. I missed graduation and yes, I did receive my diploma. Although I keep having this nightmare about someone finding out I hadn't taken the right courses to graduate and I had to go back to school to make up the work... (hmm, where have I heard this before?)...

The cancer has been gone for quite some time and this year is a mini-milestone for me being 15 years from original diagnosis (I don't celebrate until 2 years from now which will be 15 years from when the doctors said it was gone).

I am facing yet another complication from the radiation of way long ago with some blood flow issues in my right hip. It's the same injury Bo Jackson had and I'm doing my best to put off any surgery for quite some time. Besides, I have too much fun playing softball with the boston ski and sports club.

By the way, does anyone know any trustworthy real estate attorneys in the Boston area? (Tewksbury or Chelmsford?).

catching up
John Meth here, I sure would like to here from some of you 59'rs (sorry I wasdn't one of Miss Risoli's better students).

getting in touch
I just found this site. I would like to hear from members of the class of '63. I hope we have a reunion in 2003. Just to bring you up to date, I am radio sportscaster in NY covering all the NY teams.

Perhaps a little late, but I just logged on to the alumni web page for the first time and noticed Cathy Breen's Sept. '91 plea for a class officer from 1985 to plan our 20th reunion. Electra Canellas are you out there?

April Scheck's Engagement
I am getting married on November 10th, 2001 to Brett Miller. Our wedding will be in San Diego, CA. We are currently living in the San Fernando Valley, just north of Los Angeles. I am working as a Speech Language Pathologist in an Early Intervention center. If anyone from my class is ever in the area, drop me an email. It would be fun to reconnect.

I am alive
I got the announcement about the HG80 reunion and real sorry I missed it. It has taken ten years of working my ass off to realize I miss people I knew at HG. I am in Seattle now and would love to hear from any of my classmates who might happen to recall who I am... I am living now with my wife and two great little girls and am a university professor at the University of Washington. See Ya hopefull at R 2005

Hi Guys-
I'm looking to re-connect with some old buddies, I think they were in the class of '79. Does anyone know what happened to Joan Corso and Lori Lockwood?
Cheers, Jim

Changing Times
Most of you have probably seen this already, but for those of you who haven't, here is proof positive that a) Greeley knows how to stay in the news and b) things have certainly changed since the days of scrawling things on the bathroom wall. Two points of view:


A Native Cape Codder is Born!!
OK, OK I can't believe I am writing something on this site, but what the heck.

Just wanted to let anyone interested know, that Aim and I had our first child 5/15/01 on Cape Cod. Kaelly Farrell weighed in at a whopping 8 lbs 15oz. Everyone is great except for dad who has not had much time to Golf or Striper Fish!!

Nielle Cross is a Mom!
Hi class of '92. This site was sent to me from another Greeley graduate. Some of you may remember me..my mother was head of the English department at Greeley..Alice Cross (Ms.Cross) I am happy to say that I am a Newlywed. I recently got married to Robert Mayo Jr. on November 17,2000 at Tappan Hill in Tarrytown, NY. We currently live in Massachusetts and have a beautiful baby boy named Colin Robert. Anyone who would like to contact me, please do. I keep in touch with a few friends from Greeley, but I'd love to hear from ..Ben Wells (you are 7/8ths), Brad Wasserman, Ben Woll, Jason Hutton (Puss!), Greg Roth(class of 93) Looking forward to hearing from you..

Jason Palmer is Engaged
I have just become Engaged to Iris Yamileth Mena Ramos (or Yami for short) from Tegucigalpa, Honduras. We will be wed in the Bay Islands in early March of next year. Yami works in the diamond business and I sell handbags and lingerie in my stores and online at BAGSHOP.COM. I would also like to congradulate Adam Goldstone on his soon to be wedding.

I wanted to let everyone know that I'm a very proud aunt. My sister, Valeria d'Angelo (now Niehaus) gave birth to her first baby on April 17th, 2001. Andrew David Neihaus only weighed in at 4lb 12oz (he's trying to take after his aunt :-) ). Due to his size and lack of strength he had to stay in the hospital for a couple of weeks, but is now at home with mom and dad.

Find old friends
Class of 92'
I'm not sure if anybody would remember me. I moved in my junior year to Yorktown Hgts. I should have finshed my last year out at Greeley, but things happen. If there's anybody out there such as Christine C. Linds D, or Alise P you conacted through this email. To everybody else I hope you guys are happy and healthy. Got to go. Annette

Hello Everyone,

BEFORE I GO ON, I'd like to THANK the person or the people who are doing this site. I think that it's a wonderful idea and a fantastic way to find old friends. Not only friends, but people who weren't friends in high school.

After all, I believe that we've all grown up. We have overcome any type of name calling "Clicks" -- which are now known as "Gangs", Greasers, Jocks, Popular Ones, Nerds, (not to mention a few that I can't write--hahaha!!) etc. Let's face it, we all have one thing in common -- We're From Horace Greeley!

So, for anyone who doesn't like this site or doesn't appreciate it, let's just be thankful that we have people out there who are maintaining this for us. I'm sure that it takes much time and effort for them to keep up on things, much less their own private lives. So, THANK YOU FOR DOING A WONDERFUL JOB! Do me a favor please, place your hand somewhere on your back and pat it! You deserve a pat on the back from EVERYONE who you're doing this for. (Granted, your back would hurt after a while--hahaha!) It truly is appreciated!!!!
Anyway, several people have asked me Why my last announcement was done in the third party? Well, due to my illness, which is labeled as: Chronic, Progressive, Secondary, Multiple Sclerosis, (which is only a name they gave to the disease because my Neurologists are unsure of what it actually is -- and this seemed to be the closest) but there are times when I'm unable to see, hear, walk, write, much less type, etc. Therefore a good friend of mine had typed things in for me. Many things, of which, I was unaware that she had placed in -- all true, but she did take it upon herself to do for me. Actually, a mistake was made regarding my business. When she had said that it was one of the World's Largest International "Click Through" Businesses on the Internet. She did write it incorrectly. The business is one of the World's Largest International "Click Through" Business DIRECTORIES on the Internet. So, I'm apologize for her error. My friend who had written about me is such a sweet lady, but knows VERY LITTLE about the Internet. Yet, when someone is doing something for you, don't complain! They are taking the time to do something out of the goodness of their heart. So, she thought she'd write a little more than what I had mentioned. She always hears me speaking of the days at Greeley, and wanted everyone to know what's been going on in my life since then.

I was sent a poem, which I'd like to share with everyone. Please, take no offense to it. It is not intended for any particular religion. It is just something to read. I thought that it was absolutely beautiful and wanted to share it with you. Here it is and just enjoy:

Watch and listen carefully:

The man whispered, "God, speak to me,"
And a meadowlark sang.
But, the man did not hear.

So the man yelled "God, speak to me!"
And, the thunder rolled across the sky.

But, the man did not listen.
The man looked around and said,

"God let me see you."
And a star shone brightly.

But the man did not notice.
And, the man shouted,

"God show me a miracle!"
And, a new life was born.

But, the man did not know.
So, the man cried out in despair,

"Touch me God, and let me
know you are here!"

Whereupon, God reached down
and touched the man.

But, the man brushed the butterfly
away and walked on.

Don't miss out on a blessing because
it isn't packaged the way that you expect.

I would LOVE to hear from anyone. If you'd like to talk, want advice about web designing, computers, the Internet, etc...

Please fax, call, e-mail, whichever is the most convenient for you.

Here are a number of ways as to how to contact me:

I can't wait to hear from you! Thanks!!

Ann Marie (Rea Tucci) Leonaggeo

personal changes
After 15 years in the newspaper business, I "retired" last month to be home fulltime with our two boys, ages 4.5 and 1.5 years old. I see how fleeting their childhood is and want to savor it with them. So far, I am really enjoying myself - though I don't have a lot of time to myself! Sometimes, being a fulltime parent feels like a countercultural decision. Fortunately, we live in a tightly knit community and know other parents staying home with their children. So I don't lack for adult companionship during the day.

My husband and I live near Rutgers University in a nearly century-old home in an historic neighborhood. Greg works at the World Trade Center, doing media relations for the Port Authority.

I would love to hear from my old Greeley friends - from classes and theater. I mostly have lost touch with them. As time goes on, I appreciate more and more the wonderful teachers I had at Greeley - Mr. Stewart, Mr. Dunn, Ms. Cross, Mr. Corwin and Dr. O'Neill to name just a few.

One of my sisters, Amy, lives in Chappaqua and my parents still do too. So I
visit frequently.

Allison Salerno '80

Ann Marie (Rea) Tucci - Leonaggeo and her husband of 16+ years have lived in Las Vegas, Nevada for the past 11 years. They have two boys, Domenick who is 13 years old and Andrew who is 11 years old.

Ann Marie is the owner of one of the World's Largest International "Click Through" Businesses on the Internet. The site has been up for 6+ years now. The business is called "The Internet Directory" / "The Online Directory". The two URL's are: http://www.theinternetdirectory.com and http://www.theonlinedirectory.com, both of which point to the same site. The best way to contact me would be through this e-mail address: tod (at) theonlinedirectory.com

"Wow, when this business began, I had never expected it to become this huge so quickly."

It is literally a 24/7/365 business. There are thousands upon thousands of businesses which are listed on the site. Even more than that come to visit it on a daily basis. It's just incredible! Take a look to see what you think. What is given out FREE are the listings which include: the business name, address, telephone number, fax number, slogan &/or motto, links to your URL (website) and links to your existing e-mail accounts.

She has also written articles for Reader's Digest, People Magazine and several small newspapers.

Ann Marie (Rea) left Horace Greeley early, due to her family moving. She went to Fox Lane (BOOO, HISSSS) for six months. She graduated high school, prior to her 16th birthday. She is still a terminal student. She has an Associates in Legal, Associates in Sociology, CPCU in Insurance, Licensed as a Stock Broker, Level 3 in Sign-Language, and went to school for nursing. Currently, due to her illness, which I'll explain in a little bit, she is the owner of the Internet Business, does web design, fixes computers, etc...anything to do with computer and writing seems to be her life these days. In her spare time that is. Her children and husband are the source of her strength with this horrible disease. She never seems to complain though. The pain which she is in on a daily basis, is just incredible. How she can stand it, we don't know.

Robert, her husband works at MGM Grand Hotel / Casino. He is a graduate of the New York Botanical Gardens. He is a horticulturist.

Ann Marie (Rea)'s children go to a private school out here in Las Vegas, Nevada. They live on the 9th Tee of the Las Vegas National. This is a golf course where many of the pro's play in different tournments.

The thing that she really enjoys is NASCAR and the DRAG RACING! She never misses a single one. Naturally, going and staying in the private booth is the only way to go. If not, forget about your hearing! Especially with the Drag Races!

The family loves Las Vegas. Yes, the majority of Las Vegas isn't what you'd see on a television show. It's not just gambling, by any means. The people are friendly, you can walk down the street without fear of being mugged, the weather is great! NO SNOW and an average of about 3 - 4 inches of rain a year. The sun is always out. Boating is an always on the weekends. They just take the boat out on Lake Mead and travel to Hoover Dam. The kids love to jump off and go swimming in the lake. It's really a great place to live. Yes, without a doubt, it's HOT in the summer. But, remember when you have humidity of 10% at the highest, you can actually be outside when it's 110 degrees and not break a sweat.

Anyway, I should explain to you why the businesses on the Internet was started. This business was done for a couple of reasons. The first reason is that Ann Marie (Rea) is a computer nut and the second is because of Ann Marie (Rea)'s illness. She was diagnosed with a VERY RARE form of Multiple Sclerosis. There is only one other person in the United States who has this. It's name is: Chronic, Progressive, Secondary, Multiple Sclerosis. Unfortunately, it is moving along far too quickly. But don't feel bad because her attitude is that "She has M.S. but M.S. doesn't have her!" Naturally, the M.S. is going to win in the end, but any of you who know Ann Marie (Rea) know that she's a fighter and she's going to put up a huge fight!

I know that Ann Marie (Rea) has been trying to contact several people who went to Horace Greeley. If anyone knows a telephone number or an e-mail address for Laurie Lopez, Barbara Jean (Bobbi Jean) Lopez, Jenny O'Donnell, Melissa English, Karen Partello, Steve Linarez, Hugh Ferguson or Jill Eline, please send her their information.

Ann Marie (Rea) would love to hear from anyone from school. Due to her illness, she's unable to fly and was not able to make it to the "Class Reunion" last summer.

Remember two things: (1) No matter what may happen to you throughout your lifetime, no matter what type of obsticles you may run into, no matter how bad things may look at times..FIGHT even if you know you're going to lose, DO YOUR BEST! Everything happens for a reason, and you WILL FIND that rainbow that we're all looking for and (2)Do you remember what Horace Greeley said; "Go West Young Man" and going from Chappaqua, New York to Las Vegas, Nevada was going pretty far west--well, Horace Greeley was right!!!!

25th year directory
Let it be known that a class of '77 directory is in the works. If you haven't already contacted me with your address, phone and email address, please do. The last directory for our class is in serious need of updating, so encourage your Greeley buddies to email me with their vital statistics or send them to Barbara Lyman-Varangis, 5413 Lambeth Rd., Bethesda, MD 20814. The sooner I get your information the less panicked I will be.

Web Site For Chappaqua
Hi -I've come back to the area with my husband and little girl and wanted to share with you all a great web site for the Chappaqua Community. The site www.chappaqua.americantowns.com, provides an umbrella for activity in the community providing each organization and business with its own page (free) which it administers (no special web skills necessary!). It's helpful for people who live here and for those of you who have moved away to keep track of what's going on. If you want more information, contact me at dmannix (at) americantowns.com. I would love to hear from friends from '82.

Best, Nik

Grafflin Teacher
Does anyone know how to reach Kenneth A. Wood, who taught at Grafflin only one year ('67 - '68)? He was a 5th grade teacher who was much loved by those of us in his class that year. I caught up with him once years later, but have no idea of his whereabouts now.

If anyone knows how i can contact someone who used to teach fifth grade at Grafflin in the late 60s - early 70s, please contact me. The teacher's name was Al Covino. Thanks

Plan Ahead!!
Hi everyone,
Found this site while looking for an address for my sister who is computer illiterate and I didn't see one thing from anyone from the class of '63. I thought for sure Helen or Karen or Ruth Ellen would have been listed here. You know that our 40th is coming up far too quickly and for those of us who live on the other side of the country in the West, some advance notice would be great. Is anything being planned? Should we be doing something? Hope someone will get in touch with me and bring me up to date. Our three children are all out of college, out of the house and working (hallelujah!!)...two are married and we have our first GRANDBABY!! How can that be? Aren't we still kids? Love to all, Judy

Okay Rachel, Where are you NOW?
I found your posting (listed for a year ago) but now WHERE ARE YOU RACHEL FALCONER?? I have addresses for Sue and Liz if you want them. Call me, write me, tell me you are still alive!

I am here in UT with 5 kids, 6 horses, 2 dogs, 4 cats, and lots of laundry!

If there is anyone else out there who remembers me and would like to email, please feel free. Yes, I know where all the other "Tarbet's" are too, if you remeber them and want to find out where they are and what they are up to (Ken, Craig, Bryon, Debbie) just drop me a line

It has been a long time
It was great to find this site. I am a Urologist and I work in Waterbury, CT. Unfortunately it is time to switch.
I am disturbed about the rifraff that has moved into our great town but there isn't much we can do about it.
I have two daughters age 15 and 12. Both are doing well. I hope all is well with everyone else and hope to see you if there is going to be a 30 reunion.

Celeste's Engagement
I noticed that Celeste was too modest to mention it herself, so I'll do it for her - she got engaged to Steve Dedona, her boyfriend from high school, over the holidays. Congratulations Celeste!

Modem-bound folks beware, it's a pretty large page.

Seeking Ed Barlow Information
All Greeley Graduates:
I am compiling information on legendary instructor Edwin Barlow (d.1990), and request any and all anecdotes, stories, information, and personal recollections of Greeley's most controversial figure. With the full blessing of his surviving brother, I have uncovered many details of Mr. Barlow's very private life. If you encountered Mr. Barlow during your time at Greeley, please visit:

http://www.edbarlowproject.com/ for more details.

Most importantly, please tell AS MANY OTHER GREELEY GRADS THAT YOU CAN about this project. The intended biography requires the testimonials of those who know him, and the only real way to get the news out is by word of mouth. Whether you loved or hated him, I need your stories and want to provide a balanced portrait of Mr. Barlow.

Micah Green '90
Micah Green's debut record is on sale now.

For more information or to purchase your copy just go to http://www.dirtymedia.com

The recently completed record is receiving frequent play on Ground Zero, Chris Douridas' weekly radio show featured on LA's KCRW as well as AOL's Spinner.com.

Here is just a sample of one of the recent reviews:
Listen.com review
With an impressive array of songs produced by the impeccably coiffed Duncan Sheik, Micah Green looks set to start making musical waves of his own. Green's shy, whispery voice is the perfect match for gentle, acoustic guitar-oriented pop that's always dotted by sharp countermelodies and gently effective pop hooks. Linda R.


Peter Logan '68
My name is Peter Logan, class of '68. I have been a monk at the Community of Jesus on Cape Cod, since 1974. We are an ecumenical monastic community, in the Benedictine tradition.

Class of 85 - REUNION?
I just attended the HGHS Class of '80 reunion with my boyfriend, and it was very well put on. I got lots of great ideas of what to do and what not to do to make our future reunions a success. I assume we are not having a 15th? Anyway, I look forward to a 20th and will be happy to help whoever takes the reins - shouldn't a class officer do that? Marshall Taylor - you out there? My first suggestion: NO CASH BAR!!! Gross! All the Best: "Breenie"

Class of '80 Reunion recap
Just wanted to say what a great time I had at the Class of '80 reunion. Thanks to everyone who helped organize this event. It meant alot to me to get so many warm welcomes from fellow classmates that I hadn't seen in twenty years. I still can't believe it's been twenty years! I am looking forward to the next reunion.

Class of '80 20th Reunion recap
Having just returned from our 20th reunion I would like to say I am very proud to be a member of the class of '80. A fantastic effort by the very dedicated and hard working reunion committee. I think for thoise of us who were there it was definitely worth the "trip". I don't know about the rest of you but how weird was it walking into Calhouns on Friday night and seeing people you had not sseen for over twenty years? What was weirder is so many of them look like adult versions of themselves...oh yeah. I really enjoyed the reunion and hope our class can pull off a 25th! For those of you who missed the 20th I think you missed something very special so for you slackers that didn't make it let's get the ball rolling for the 25th. There will be McKluskey mud wrestling at the 25th along with Naked Groover Girls so be there or be lonely.



Class of '80 20th Reunion recap
20th reunion was better than I expected! I felt as if I were still in high school!
Many thanks to all organizers. I look forward to corresponding with others who are still smiling!

class of 88
I attended H.G. for only the 9th grade and still have fond memories, I would have graduated with the class of 88. I am looking for my old friends or anyone who remembers me. I wish I had a link to this past!

Class of '96
I was just curious as to what the class of '96 has been up to. I've been so busy that I've really lost touch.

Just Wondering

Solarfest 2000
I have an announcement for the non-profit some friends and I have created: SolarFest: Energy Education through the Arts. This is our 6th annual performance arts festival run entirely on solar power in Middletown Springs, Vermont. At the first one, fellow classmate Ed Witkin turned up to help power things with his solar rig - he'll be there this year. Dar Williams performed in '97 and '98, along with a whole slew of fine musicians. Just yesterday I ran into Dori Meeker (now Wolfe), who is an energy consultant and children's music performer, who will join us this year. Furthermore (is there such a thing as too much confluence?) Sloan Wainwright, who performed in Saw Mill Summer Theater's "The Robber Bridegroom" in 1977, will be joining us with her band. Anyone else want to reunion this July 29 and 30? For more information about us and our full roster of music, solar workshops, and kids' activities, please visit our web site at http://solarfest.com/

Back At Greeley
Believe it or not, I'm back at Horace Greeley running the Academic Intervention Program for students not doing well in their academic subjects. It's a one- on -one tutorial program for students in need of academic focus. I have been here for ten years now. Thoroughly enjoying the experience. The staff is great.

Re: Memories
Thought this might interest you. Greeley is number 18 in the country, and 7 of the top 20 are from NY state.


Re: Memories
Regarding Ms Weston's comments about Mr. Barlow. He said a great deal worse to me and friends during our year with him in 1978. I to am in Virginia (Charlottesville) and it is a bit different environment than Westchester. Would be curious to hear from other grads in Northern/Central Virginia

Class of '60 newsletter
The new issue of Herd in the Halls is ready for your viewing pleasure at the URL below.


Remember how Mr. Barlow used to call us "you stupid teenagers"?! As a teacher myself, I could never get away with that! I currently teach English as a Second Language outside of DC in Alexandria, Va. I feel like a misplaced Yankee down here, in spite of the fact that I've been here in VA since HGHS graduation. I'd love to hear from Class of '74 friends.

Birth Announcement
My name is Kristin Bohmert Palumbo and I wanted to let you know that my husband and I are the proud new parents of a baby girl. Her name is Julia Catherine, she was born on Feb. 6th at 11:30am, weighed 7lbs. 13 oz and was 19 3/4 inches. All went well and we are proudly adjusting to parenthood.

Rachel Falconer '80
Laurie Casey recently emailed me out of the blue and sent me information about this site. I am delighted to be back in touch with Greeley-ites. I've lost my 1980 Yearbook, and would love to know how to order a replacement copy. Are there spares in a closet somewhere? I am working at a university in the north of England, where at this time of year all you see is grey rain (Sheffield, home of the full monty). It's a time of year we tend to write more letters. The topic I'm interested in at the moment is literary descents into hell, in fiction written after 1945. Read any brilliant books on this theme lately? I would love to hear news from Drusie (1979) (a note to her: I still think it's Orion), or Tizzie Collins, Tara Lefton or Sue Friedman, or any of the Photography crowd, Adam Isidore (all 1980s). I would also love to contact my English teachers, or at least to know how many of them are still teaching at Greeley. I hold them personally responsible for where I am now! I often remember my art room days, some of my most content, and wonder whether it's changed. Recently, I took up the cello again, and in Sheffield Philharmonic, have rediscovered how fantastic it is to make a huge noise collectively. But is there anywhere I can get hold of that yearbook? With warmest regards to everyone, Rachel

Class Ring Found
My name is Tom Miller and I am a coach at Brown University. I recently found a class ring from your High School with the name (Ada D. Duan, Class of 89) on the inside. (she may have been a basketball player in HS) Brown records show that she graduated from Brown in 1993 and Ada is her middle name. The phone # we have listed is no longer in serves. Can you or your school help me in this matter?

The Clintons Come to Town
In case anyone was wondering who used to live in the house that Bill and Hillary Clinton just bought...that was me (in the 70's). If you had access to a Washington Post from Nov. 2, 1999, you might have caught my article in the Style section about what it's like to have the President buy your old house.

I'm living and teaching in Washington DC, and my wife and I have a 2 year old girl and a baby on the way in a few weeks.

A Greeley Tragedy
Last night, Scott Greges '99 and parents were in a car accident on the Bronx River parkway. Both parents were killed, and Scott is in very critical condition at Westchester Medical Center. Tim Greges, another Greeley alum, is Scott's brother. I belive he's a senior in college. I'm not sure if you'll get this in time, but could you please put something on the alumni page mentioning this tragedy and asking people to pray--in whatever way they do--for both Scott and Tim? Thank you.

Friends of Bill
Firstly, I think we all owe Jesse Chan-Norris a great big "MERCI BEAUCOUP" for putting together and maintaining this website, not to mention the litany of Greeley french teachers who made it possible for me to say "thank-you" in french. Now there's a language I use alot today:^)

The most important thing I can say about myself is that I am a sober member of Alcoholics Anonymous. If you are a Greeley 76er (or any other class) who is a Friend of Bill's, I'd like to here from you. Of course, your anonymity will be respected in accordance with the Twelfth Tradition. If you think you have a problem with alcohol &/or drugs, drop me a line. The very brief version of my story goes something like this: I drank. I got drunk. I fell down in every sense one can fall down (physically, mentally and spiritually). I stumbled into AA (many times) and my life has been transformed. Life now has meaning after many years of wandering in a desert of despair and isolation.

If you want to talk, I'm here. I'm living in Mt. Kisco and my home-group is called Leonard Park. Peace. Jack Pfaff

Help Us Find Someone!

I'm hoping you can help link me up to someone who graduated from Horace Greeley H.S. in 1974 - her name was Sheila but I don't remember her last name, and the yearbooks that I have list very few names, only those graduating (I graduated in 1973). We wrote in each other's yearbook that we would meet up near the school in June 1999, which at this point is right around the corner.

What should I do?

Thanks for your assistance.

Looking for people, info
My name is Chris Williams and I was in the class of 85. I stumbled across the web site because I have been searching for Susan Gail Kaplan who was in class with me.

If anyone has seen or heard from her, give her my e-mail address which is cdubs (at) hotmail.com .. I would appreciate it.

The web site is great! And if anyone else wants to say hello, drop me a note!

According to my sources, limited at best, there was not a reunion for our class's 20th....hmmmm..don't know why or what is going on...I even called HGHS and talked to Mr. Breen....

Exploring new ways of doing nothing this morning. Have had good luck now to have two little daughter, Annie and Gwen.
