A NUMBER OF GRAPHICS ON THIS SITE ARE QUITE LARGE AND THIS RESULTS IN AN ARTICLE WHICH IS VERY DIFFICULT TO READ. ONE WAY YOU CAN HELP YOURSELF IS TO CHANGE THE RESOLUTION ON YOUR COMPUTER SCREEN. IT IS A SIMPLE AND PAINLESS PROCESS AND CAN BE REVERSED AT ANY TIME. HERE'S HOW: 1) GO TO START ON THE LOWER LEFT OF YOUR SCREEN (TASKBAR). 2) CHOOSE CONTROL PANEL AND CLICK ON IT. 3) CLICK ON DISPLAY FROM THE MANY CHOICES OFFERED. 4) CLICK ON SETTINGS AS SHOWN IN THE UPPER RIGHT OF THE SETTINGS SCREEN. 5) SLIDE THE SETTINGS BAR TO THE FAR LEFT, RESETTING YOUR RESOLUTION TO 800 X 600. YOUR SCREEN WILL BLINK FOR A MOMENT, THE CHANGE WILL BE MADE, AND YOU WILL BE ASKED IF YOU WANT TO MAINTAIN THE SETTING. CLICK YES. THAT'S ALL THERE IS TO IT. IT CAN BE REVERSED AT ANY TIME BY SIMPLY REVERSING THE PROCESS. I FIND THIS CHANGE TO BE MUCH EASIER ON MY 73 YEAR OLD EYES. TRY IT....YOU MIGHT LIKE IT!
The 50th reunion of the class of 1951. This photo was taken with one of those old fashioned 35MM film cameras, so please pardon the lack of clarity. That's either Jack or Bob Kline in the foreground. I could never tell them apart.
To view the full sized graphic, click on it and it will enlarge (IF IT IS A GRAPHIC WHICH LENDS ITSELF TO ENLARGEMENT) In Internet Explorer, there will be a little blue and orange icon on the lower right of the photo when you place your cursor on it. Click it, and Voila!
Classmates, I need your help. I would like to know the names of those of our class who are no longer with us. I have some in my own files, but unfortunately there are numerous classmates with whom I am not in contact. I also would love to have you send me any photos you might have from your school years. It is an unfortunate fact that there are only a small handful of us who are into computing. However, this message is posted for those of you who are, and I would ask that you send me anything you want posted to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for your consideration!
Joe passed on to be with the Lord this past week. Those of us who went through Kuser School from Miss Kelly's "Reception Grade" right through Kuser Annex and Hamilton High will remember Joe. He was always there with that ready smile and wonderful personality. We miss you, Joe, and you will be remembered.
This is a work in progress. In fact, at this time I am working on rustling together some of the many Hamilton High related columns I have written for the local press over the years, and also digging up various and sundry bits and pieces from my collection of school memorabilia. So stay tuned. And fellow classmates, we have reached the golden age of the early 70's, so let's drop the vanity thing and realize that we have undergone some very drastic changes in our appearances. (You should see the gut I am currently hiding under my size 40 waist!) Remember that we are still that closely knit class of 51, similar to most of the classes of Hamilton who went before us.
