From: bbartlett@prodigy.net (Bill Bartlett)

What a great web site -- thanks! Since we don't live in AZ, I don't get to see too many fellow Scottsdale High School alums. My husband (25 year anniversary this year) and I live in Lake Forest, CA where he is pastor of a church. I work there as the Director of the preschool. Our 21 year old just graduated from college, and our 18 year old just started college this fall. Hard to believe how quickly the years go by. We would like to try to come to the reunion in Oct. and hope to hear from some people we haven't seen for years. Our e-mail address: bbartlett@juno.com

From: aoakley626@nac.net (Jane Butts)

Hi! Jane Butts here. I would have graduated in 1971, but my father was
transferred, and we left Scottsdale in the 2nd half of my junior year.
I attended Kaibab Elementary from 3rd grade on. Finished high school in
Oklahoma (!!), but always thought of myself as a Scottsdalian, a fact I
fear I made perfectly clear to the kids at my new school.

I was pretty much of a nerd at Scottsdale High School , and most folks probably wouldn't
remember me. In fact, I was best known as being John Butts' (1969)
little sister. Was in choir and a couple of Mr. Coats' musicals and
mostly tried very hard to be a kinda hippie (as much as you can be when
your dad's an FBI agent!) Warm memories of friends Lynn McCullough,
Denise Cohen, Karen Titterington, Martha Weiss.

Kicked around some and here I am in New Jersey (wrong turn in
Albequerque.) Left a 16yr career as Chief Park Ranger to run a boarding
kennel for dogs. Ride and train polo ponies on the side, am unmarried
with the greatest 10yr. old son Mac.

I can't believe they bulldozed our high school!!!!!>

From: TimCalMex@aol.com

Dear Bill,

First, thanks for all the work you put into this site on an ongoing basis. Although until now, I haven't written, I do read it regularly. (I shoot for Mondays (You usually do updates on Sunday, right?) when I should be working.)

I think I remember you. Letter sweater and a camera, right? Anyway, thanks again.

The reason why I am writing is that although I took today (Monday) off, I thought I would go to the site on my home computer. Alas - no bookmark, and I forgot the URL. So I went to AOL Netfind, put in "Scottsdale High School" and came up with this. It is a little sluggish, but it turns out to be the web site for Scottsdale High School in Tasmania, Australia. All those times we were saying "Go Beavers" we had no idea just how far away we were being heard.

Just thought you and the fellow beaves might like to know.

Go Taz!, er Beavers!

PS I ultimately found your site by going to the official Arcadia site, under Alumni. I should probably get a life. Regards, TC

My wife Anne and I have been married 21 years, have three sons and a good life in Kansas.  We are a busy bunch whether on the lake in the boat or taking trips on the Harley and enjoy life to the max. I would love to hear from any of you that graduated around the same time as I still get back to AZ a couple of times a year to see my dad in Scottsdale and would like to keep in touch. Too bad about Beaver paradise as it was a great time!!!

someone is out there!!! Thanks Jill Lawson Tyrrell

Subj: Scottsdale High School 71

From: blickle@erols.com (Robert Blickle)

OK, here goes a second try. Thanks to Rob Peterson for telling me about
this website; after I checked into it I understood that I was supposed to
WRITE SOMETHING on the email message, which would be my posting. There was
no questionnaire....I'm just too used to filling out forms, I guess.

I'm living on another planet, Washington, D.C. 3 year tour of Navy active
duty, supposed to end the summer of '01 - maybe I can figure out a way to
blast off early, however. I still can't believe I'm putting on a uniform
every day and working within the beltway.

A few other truths which are stranger than fiction: my son Casey is halfway
through college at Notre Dame.....I've delivered eulogies to both my
parents..... I'm only in touch with two people from high school - Rob
Peterson and Pat O'Donnell (who also lives and works in the DC area) - and
just barely with both of them..... the price of a long distance phonecall to
Denmark is 10% what it was 25 years ago......the turn of this century is
only 4 months away......I still have dreams about forgetting my locker
combination......politics in the private sector, military, church and civic
organizations are EXACTLY the same as in high school......I can swim a mile
but not run two blocks......and most difficult of all for me to comprehend -
if our 30th reunion is only 2 years away, we must be nearly 50!

My husband Rob and I have a great house on beautiful Whidbey Island, in the
Puget Sound - to which we hope to return after this assignment (or the next)
in the Navy. Between us we have 4 kids, our major project being to get them
all through college - one down, three to go. Thanks to his active duty
career and now mine, we've traveled a lot, lived in 5 places in the past 10
years and envy certain aspects of staying settled in a hometown. But that
doesn't seem to be in our movie, maybe never will be?

Kathy Mahoney (Blickle) or Kathy Blickle (Mahoney) I really don't
understand how that's supposed to be done. In high school it was Mahoney,
now it's Blickle. Rhymes with "Nestle", not "pickle".

P.S. Email penpals welcome. Blickle@erols.com Anyone know whatever
happened to Dave Denny?

From: lpiotrowski@grci.com (Piotrowski, Leslie)

From: Leslie S. McConnaughy-Piotrowski Class of '71 (barely!)

I'm in Washington, DC now working as a Beltway Bandit. I did 20+ years active duty in the Navy - retiring in Oct '97. Since then I've been working in and around the DC area as an Information Security Analyst supporting the government.

I have two sons, Richard is 11 and Michael (who I call Zippy is 7), and have lived in the suburbs of Maryland since 1990. I get home to Scottsdale about every year and a half to visit my family. My sisters are all alumni - Linda '65, Peggy '66, Lisa '81 and Laura '82. My brothers (Mike who would have been class of '72 and Mark who would have been class of '74) both went into the military and completed school there. My Dad is retired and living all over the country - my Mom passed away in '94. Among the McConnaughy Clan there are 7 kids, 19 grandkids, and 2 great-grandkids.

I was very saddened to hear of Dave Coats passing. He was a wonderful teacher (even with his temper) and had more faith in me than any teacher I ever had. I can't say there is any one thing in particular I miss about Scottsdale High School - I do have a recurring nightmare that I left all of my stuff in my locker and couldn't remember where my locker was. Not good. I keep in touch with Marcy Fidler (now Heard) Class of '72 who keeps me posted on the latest Scottsdale High School news. I do miss sitting at the Tastee Freeze smoking and goofing around. Waking Doug Dole up after History Class (good thing he didn't snore); I do remember Jeff Trapp. Jeff you lived a few houses down the street from me and tried to make my life miserable for years. Now I'm a respectable citizen - you never did get to bust any of us!; I also remember carrying Eric Tucker's books while he coughed the entire mile and a half from our neighborhood to school. Whooping cough will do that to you.

I am planning to attend the reunion - along with my sisters - so I will hopefully see some of you that I remember and who remember me. Until we meet again

Hi Guys!

It's been great reading all your bios!  This is Liz Oslund Roehr, married to
Jim Roehr, yes from our same graduating year at Scottsdale High School !  And we didn't even
date in High School!  Hey, I'm working on the 30th Reunion with Nancy Eckle
Sherr, and are looking for as many addresses and email addresses as
possible.  If any of you have any info on friends from school, please email
me with whatever you have.  The Reunion is scheduled for Nov. 23-25, 2001
(Thanksgiving weekend)
, and we hope to see all of you there!  We're planning
on doing the mailing this week, so let me know any updates as soon as
possible!  Also, we're in the process of setting up our own website:
Scottsdale High School Class71.com   It should be up and running within about a week, so check
it out.  Bill, we appreciate all your work with this website, and hope to
put a link from ours to yours if that's okay with you.  I will send you more
info on our Reunion, too so maybe you can post it on your website as well.
Thanks in advance for any info you guys can send us.  You can send it to us

Theater around the valley.  He was just nominated for an Ari"Zoni" best

Good work, Bill Farrell!

My son at ASU informed me of this website. Though I am completely computer illiterate, I thought I would register. I'm Buff (Palmer) Berg, from the class of '71. Along with my brothers, Mike '69, Rett '72, Tab '73, Clip '78, and sister, Calee '80, we covered a few years there. Since I still know all of them (duh!) I know where and what they are doing, if anyone needs to know.
I've lived back in Scottsdale for 10 years now, after living in Salt Lake City for 13 years.
I have a husband, Mike, and three boys, Dustin (18), Tyler (15) and Ryan (4). I work at America West Airlines
I've been involved in our class reunions and still keep in contact with quite a few people.
My boys have gone to Saguaro, which was at first hard to cheer for. (The things we do for our kids.) We have a great life!
Plan on checking in every so often. Thanks for the info. "Beavers Forever"!

Hello fellow Beavers, hope all is well with everyone...........

I still remember the advice that Jose Barcala gave me years ago: Un
boca cerrada, no entran moscas. Too bad that the only value I received
from it was to never forget the Spanish word for fly. I remember
learning in Social Studies that the most politcally informed age groups
were high school students, college students, and senior citizens. Hmmm,
sort of explains why the most important politcal event for the Baby
Boomers was the White House affair. I can't wait for April 30 so I can
participate in the Great Gas Out. You know, the day, the one single
day, where everyone is supposed to avoid buying gas in protest if high
prices. Too bad that everyone else in the world pays $3-$4/gallon.
Isn't it funny that sometimes the only dirty jokes you can remember are
the ones you didn't get when they were told. It took me two years to
get the dirty joke that Jean Hollis told the night she had the world
famous Flamenco dancers over at her house. And, I still remember that
joke, how strange. A teacher could get in trouble for telling jokes
like that nowdays; too bad. Remember how cool it was hanging out in
Beaver Paradise. I wonder what Beaver Paradise looks like now. Looking
forward to seeing you all at the next reunion.

If anyone wants to chat or just simply play an email chess game, please
write. I'm a MWM, tall, NSLD, interested in all types, looking for
ex-beavers that want to have fun.

From: garyatalliance360@email.msn.com (Carole Brookins)

After graduating in 1971 I went to NAU for a year. I married in 1972 and
have 3 children by my first wife. I started in the printing business in
1973. In 1977 I moved to Texas to start a company in the town (14,000) where
my parents were originally from. Lived there 4 years before closing my
business and moved to Colorado in 1981 where I pursued my hobby of technical
climbing which I had started in high school. Plus, those Texans in small
towns were pretty rednecked and prejudice back then and that didn't work. In
1983 I started another printing business in Fort Collins, Colorado which I
had until August of 1999. I live about 20 miles out of town with my second
wife of 11 years, Carole. I spend most of my off time either climbing or
exploring Wyoming (35miles to the north) looking for arrowheads. Would like
to hear from any of you, especially those from the old Kaibab elementary
days. I can be contacted at:

Thank you very much for all the time you spend on this website, it is most generous of you.
On the strong recommendation of the fabulous Ms. Terri Rundle and the indomitable Elisabeth Andres, I joined the party at the Coast on friday night. We arrived a little late as I had a prior engagement with Aartlink downtown, but found the crowd in good party form. To my immediate dismay, my boyfriend, Andy, was the first person recognized by someone he dated years before. Hey, this is my reunion! But, then I was approached by possibly the handsomest man on the set, Mike Hymer. What a perfect denouement, thank-you Mike. Anyway, Mike, what are you doing these days? Of course, Danny Harkins looks great, probably all those free adjustments, Donna Phillips was beautiful and still very little, Mike Goss-wow, Buff looks like Marie Osmond, Amy Johnson is still short and of course still cute, Jerry Burgess write to me. I missed several persons and inquiring minds want to know where are they?
Like, Kathy Flanigan, Gary Wierck, Tim Calland (I still remeber our first kiss), George and Kris Tibsherany, Teri Wager, Mike Titterington, Wayne (who made my heart) Ake, Dave Ellis, Ted Decker, Carla Plenert, Duncan Wales, Kathy and Sally Andrews, Marc Zebell, Bernie Zavala, Marcia Durrenberger etc., etc.
Short bio, so you know if you want to correspond with a normal person like myself. I divorced a couple of years ago, have three beautiful daughters, Margot, Simone and Dominique and four grandsons. I have been painting for many years and I have developed a comic strip, soon to be published and I write a series of fictional email correspondences between Iris Botticelli and Lily Breakfastnook. I went to college for many years, majored in ten things, started doing yoga and macrobiotics, didn't let my children watch television or eat sugar, sold vintage clothes, painted car and store windows, edited the coop newsletter ( the granola years) went back to school for ceramics, html, computer graphics and teaching certification, taught high school English and Art for several years, had my art in some exibitions, sold my art and got a job at Sun Sounds Radio, a radio reading service for the blind, where I run focus groups, surveys, and design publications and web content. I am soon to be a board member of Artlink a downtown arts association, I am hoping to produce a drag show for some of the upcoming first fridays and if you want to be notified of these gala events just email me and I will put you on the list. I play tennis, badly and still do yoga, drive a '76 cinnamon red convertible volkswagen, so wave if you see me.

If you care to drop me a line, I would love to hear from you.

Good website! I've been oblivious to any alumni acitivity all these years, but I stumbled across this site and a few old memories came back. (Not too many - graduation was almost 29 years ago!) Anyway, a real short bio: Graduated from ASU in 1975. Met my wife Jan in 1976 while I was near the end of a San Diego to Canada marathon camping trip with Terry Kalaf, a 1973 Arcadia grad. Married Jan in 1977, and lived and worked in Victoria, British Columbia and then back in Phoenix before settling in Medford, Oregon in 1981 where our two kids were both born. Moved to the Seattle area in 1983 and been here ever since. I completed the Pacific Coast Banking School at the University of Washington in 1994. I'm currently CEO of American Marine Bank headquartered on Bainbridge Island where we reside. I don't get back too frequently to AZ, but it sure was a shock the first time that I saw that the old Scottsdale High School was totally gone! I'll probably get back to the valley a little more often in the next few years as my daughter is a freshman at ASU this year (1999-2000), and my son who is a high school junior is considering taking the same route. Who would have thought that I would be paying out-of-state tuiton to ASU? Anyway, it was nice to see some familiar names on the website such as Rob Peterson, Buff Palmer, Phyllis Moore, and yes even Jeff Trapp!

From: Wingman t@aol.com

I just stumbled upon this site today and thought I'd toss in my bio since the days wandering the campus of good ole Scottsdale High School . It has been 29 years and I don't have a huge amount of memories from that era, perhaps some of my catching up will reveal why (hint: raising 5 children will do that to ya!)

As I mention in my "hint" above, I am married to another Scottsdale High School graduate Bonnie (Crosley) Wingo (Class of '74). We've been married a little over 20 years and have the 5 children between the two of us. I had 2 from a previous marriage (a Coronado graduate! NOT a great idea! lol) and Bonnie had 1. Together we added 2 more and ended up with 4 boys and the last being our only daughter. Only our daughter remains at home and is almost 18 years old.

The past 29 years are not all that important so I'll just tell where I'm at today. I live in Avondale and have worked for the past 28 years or so in the title insurance business. I am also Associate Pastor at a church here in Avondale (kind of a bi-vocational thing going on for now) and hope one day to be full time in church ministry. Bonnie is my greatest support and my best friend.

I haven't kept in touch with any of the old crowd, life kind of moved me around. My high school years were very non eventful and not many probably would even remember me. Yet, my mother still lives in the house I grew up in and when I drive by where the old campus used to be I feel a bit melancholic and remember when...

Beavers forever!

I just wanted to thank everyone who worked so hard to put this reunion
together.  I'm also glad this website is still being updated.  Since I was
in band all four years of school, it was great to be able to see all my
fellow band members who graduated from 1969 thru 1975.  Hopefully, you can
post this with my e-mail address so some can keep in touch.  I was surprised
at how many of us live so close to each other.  We were so excited to see
each other at the reunion, that many of us forgot to exchange phone numbers
until later in the evening when a few had already left.
Will look forward to future updates of info.

I've had so much fun reading the messages from people I remember, and
from people whose messages jogged my memory. Thanks for doing this.
How do I get my message in with the 70s group?

Nancy Baumann Rochman  72>

It's been a blast reading everyone's messages. I live in Tucson with
one husband, two daughters and three stepdaughters - now only 3 of the 5
girls live at home due to aging and moving on (marriage, graduating from
college and starting a career in another city). I work as Vice
President in a small medical device manufacturer in Tucson; I was the
Controller, but now am responsible for Human Resources and Quality
Assurance (our company is regulated by the FDA). Anyway, I have loved
watching my kids go through high school years; it is a time of life with
opportunity to get involved in so many different things, and yet you
don't have the responsibility of a career, a marriage or children. It's
a time of being so self-conscious!!! How did we get through it
intact?????? God, that seems like a lifetime ago, but unlike so many
things these days, I actually have distinct memories of some of the
moments of our 4 years at Scottsdale High. Looking forward to sharing
some of them with everyone at the reunion. I hope I recognize a few
people! Write if you want to be in touch before the reunion.

Hi Bill

A friend of mine (Lynn Crook Whitman 1971) recently sent me the website for SHS. It is terrific!

I graduated in 1972 from SHS and recently moved back to the Scottsdale area after 20 years in the San Franciso Bay Area and SO happy to be back home!

So thought it might be a good idea as it would be fun to reconnect with a few of my friends.
If you wouldn't mind adding me to the roster, that would be most appreciated.

Howdy Beavers,
My name is Paul Connolly (1972) I attended Scottsdale for 3 years but graduated at another school.  I started out at Paiute Grade School in 1962.  I have read some of the memories you guys have really made me think about those years 1968-1971.  You guys remember the open campus issue. Teachers and students going back and forth of whether we could leave campus at lunch.  I was really happy that they settled on letting us go off campus for lunch.  Long hair, tight bell- bottom jeans, pin striped shirts,  wire rim sunglasses, and tire-tread sandals.  I also enjoyed Rodeo week at SHS They had the Sheriff put you in Jail and you had to be tried and pay a fine to get out of jail.  Seems like in 1971 we played a joke on a bunch of teachers and tied them in a circle around a tree with a long rope and after a few minutes of laughing at them we were suppose to untie them but some one suggested that we should leave them and go home which several of us did.
   I think my favorite Teacher was Mr. Macgregor ( I think that was his name) Biology teacher.  We all learned the Arachnid song and many will remember that "Oxidation produces quite a flame,- oxide is the new materials name". and that you better get your WATHI in on time.  I had fun in his class because I found out that at 5 or 10 minutes before the end of class you could raise your hand and request to sing a song.  Macgregor would tell which of his songs you could recite and Wham!  Thirty seconds of embracement singing in front of the class and he would let you leave class after you sang.  Hey, that was extra time in the boys bathroom for cigarettes.  I wonder if anyone has a picture of the Beaver Mascot they could scan for me.  I think it would be cool on a tee shirt. or maybe a patch for my coat. I have moved to Tennessee for several years but will always remember you all.
Beavers Forever,
Paul Connolly

Hi All!

This is Sue Glady (now Sammarco) and I have really enjoyed reading everyone else's stories. I can't believe so much time has passed and so many of us are talking about our grandkids! Does anyone else still feel like a kid themselves?

I have been married to my second husband for four+ years. I have two sons, ages 19 & 21, from my first marriage. They are great--one attends UofA in the pre-vet program and the other has almost completed his BA in Graphic Design. I also have a married step-son and a grandson.

I have had a variety of career paths in my adult life but my current position is that of Director of Public Relations for The Art Institute of Phoenix. We are a private post-secondary school.

For fun, I continue to show dogs as I have done since the age of 11. We have Newfoundland dogs that we show throughout the Southwest.

At the time of the last reunion, I was very involved with the Ostrich industry in AZ but when that industry changed, I had to go back to work at a real job. It gave me a great opportunity though, to gain political experience and some renown as a writer on a national level which was very fun.

The time has slipped by so fast and some of those days seem so fresh. Does anyone else remember the teachers' strike? I recall walking beside Mr. Bruscemi, the Latin teacher, as he espoused the importance of the strike. Or the day we took the teachers out and tied them to the big palm tree?

We were so innocent, in spite of the drugs and war of our era. Life was still easier than it has been for our kids. I look forward to sharing with old friends of the past at the October reunion. I hope you all can make it! In the meantime, feel free to write...

I live in Oregon now and would love to hear from some of the gang. I missed the last reunion as I was driving from Phoenix to Eugene!

Where did the last 30 years go?
I guess I will try and heed the words of that Tim McGraw song, ?In my next 30 years!?

I have the fondest memories of high school and had the great fortune of working with some of the same folks I went to school with or even better, had as teachers, as I worked for the Scottsdale School District for about 10 years.

As a ?Beaver? I was Nancy Hay. I went to Kaibab Elementary with the gang and then on to SHS. I lived on Montecito and can close my eyes and still see Mike Goss? VW bug swerving to miss the oranges being hurled from Norm Lydiard?s mustang
Remember Orange Wars? I remember Buff Palmer, Kris O?Hara, Marcene Hamblin, and Stephanie Marusich and on and on.

I went to four universities in my first four college semesters and finally finished at ASU. I might have been one of the first to get married at the ripe old age of 20. I was married for 27 years and divorced in 2002.I have four of the most wonderful children known to mankind ages 25, 24, 20 and 8!!!!!! What a gift the 8 year old is!!! The two dogs, cat , Mak (the 8 yr. old) and I live in Eugene, OR now. (Oregon is the most beautiful state
and Eugene is like losing 30 years
welcome to the 70s)!

I am a cancer survivor. I turned 50. I changed my name to my mother?s family name.

Being in SLC the last few years has been like watching Scottsdale and Phoenix "get discovered" in the 70's and 80's which gives me mixed feelings. One of my best and craziest accomplishments to date is that I played in an over-30 baseball (hardball) league for a couple of years in my "early" 40's --- and I only tore one leg muscle.

I want to call others out that I haven't seen on this site. Bagel Bopper and the rest, you know who you are. Let's have some fun.

Greetings to all my fellow alumni of the class of 1972 ! So many fond memories of Scottsdale High School came flooding back when I discovered the web page. Great idea! I'm married to a photographer and I work for a staffing service. We've been married 14 years and have a 10 yr. old daughter, Katie. I still sing - mostly in a praise band at church - and even hit the boards from time to time in the local community theatre. They had a revival of OKLAHOMA! a while back, and I couldn't resist! Has anybody heard from Mr. Coats lately? The lessons he taught me were so valuable. I'd love to hear from the old Singers crew. e-mail me : JGILLWHIT@AOL.COM Blessings - Judy

Though I didn't graduate from Scottsdale HS, would have in '72. Moved to California after sophmore year. My name is Sheila Thomson, went to Loloma Elementary. Found out about this from a friend in in Phoenix area who sent me a newspaper clipping. In your listing of famous attendees, wanted you to include Cleve Jones, who went on to start the Names Project and the Aids Quilt. He attended at the same time as I did, went on to Phoenix country day in his junior year because of the gay bashing in the bathrooms at that time. A brief description of his time at Scottsdale High School is in his autobiography published this year "Stitching a Revolution." Though he doesn't say it in the book, he did have a little core group of friends at Scottsdale High School -other 'freaks' who hung out at lunchtime in our little cave in the yews out front.
Wish I could have been there for your grand party,
Regards, Sheila Thomson
