New Site Almost Done -
Our WebMaster, Dan Zodun, has almost finished the updated site. Don't be alarmed if it has to be down for a couple of days for admin stuff while the new site is launched.

I got some cool Highland Springs history info from Micki Taylor Burton courtesy of her Mother. After the new site is up and running I will see about working it in just for general cool nice to know stuff. We got some more reunion info to post in the next few days so keep watching. Oh by the way, "Congratulations" to the new HSHS graduating class of 2002.



I'm So Excited -
Okay, so now I am starting to get excited because I am starting to see some of the reunion commitees benefit from this website. I've also been hearing from people from time to time who actually read the things on this site and email comments on things I have written about. I haven't been able to devote as much time to the site as before what with packing and moving and having a weeks trip/vacation(?) (which was scheduled way back when). Now I'm doing the wallpaper stripping and painting thing. Back to business, Carolyn Hughes (Rhoades) sent in a "Favorite Hangouts" piece that really jogged the old cobwebs. She mentioned the old High School which later became the HS Elementary school and then after the fire became the school board building. She also reminded me that there used to be a little house adjacent to the school where all the girls went to study home economics. If I'm not mistaken that building was torn down when they built the bank next door. I also remember another house that was over behind that one too. I don't remember much about it except Dan Zodun and I would go over there to get pears off of the tree next to the house. Highland Springs always had some really nice older houses in it. There is a house on Daisy Street that I liked so much that I've always said that if I ever moved back to HS, I would buy that house. Nice older homes in the Springs and Richmond. I guess that's the older Magnolia South influence.

I see on the news that VA is getting a lot of rain. Please send some down to Central Florida, Thank you. I don't know about everyone else but I am quite tired of the Isreali/Palestinian/Iraq/Afghanistan/Saudi-Arabia thing. It would be nice to be able to concentrate our efforts and resources on the United States for awhile. Okay, I'm getting off the soap box for now because I can't feel a vent coming on. Otherwise I will end up creating a list a mile long of individuals and organizations that I would like to give to give a collective "Boot in the ass" to.

One more thing before I go. I would like to see other people volunteer for a column on the site. People from other age groups besides the one I am in. Someone from the 80's, 90's, 60's or 50's. Please drop me a line and let me know if you are interested.
