recipient call a toll free number and provide their directory information i.e. address, phone,
email, etc. The mailing actually originates from Harris Connect Co. who, every five years,
publishes a directory containing data on all Central Alumni. I understand that they do this
for all high schools. This firm is legitimate and the resulting publication has been an
invaluable aid to our Mr. Keen, ‘Tracer of Lost Persons’! I would STRONGLY urge ALL

CRUISE UPDATE – Leonard Engelberg
people who did our
online links to cruise lines who were offering deals on specific dates and specific destinations.
Since we have no specifics yet as to how many or where, we can’t take advantage of these options
since you have to make a commitment right then. So lets see what this lady, a friend of Penny
Dollar’s comes back with. We do need to get something concrete though as most of these things
offer 5 to 7.5% discounts off arrangements made 6 months in advance.
Police chiefs say the trends in aggravated assaults are particularly alarming. They are often
considered a better gauge of violence than homicides; the difference between the two is often poor

FROM THE LAUGH TRACK from Bettye Jo Olive
God is sitting in Heaven when a scientist says to Him, "Lord,
we don't need you anymore. Science
has finally figured out a way to create life out of nothing. In other words, we can now do what you did
in the 'beginning'."
"Oh, is that so? Tell me..." replies God.
"Well", says the scientist, "we can take dirt and
form it into the likeness of you and breathe life into
it, thus creating man."
"Well, that's interesting.
So the s cientist bends down to the earth and starts to mold the soil.
"Oh no, no, no..." interrupts God,
"Get your own dirt."

22 – An update from Jeanne
but it's mostly been unusually cool with very little humidity. And we've had a lot of rain. It's been very
good for the garden but not so good when we get a deluge like the one on Aug. 8. It was pouring
when I left work at 6am and the trains were running. I got home with no problems except wet feet.
The first I heard that the subway system had been brought to a standstill was in the afternoon when
I woke up and got a call from a friend. By the time I was ready to go back to work in the evening
service had been mostly restored but almost everyone had a story about a nightmare commute that
took hours, several times as long as normal.
Also that day there was apparently a tornado in Bay Ridge which is a neighborhood in
further south from where Eric and I live. I've heard of tornados in

Guys, just for you; the best movie car chases! my favorite- Bullitt - ed.
we were, weren’t we, the 1968 action thriller starring Steve
McQueen featured what was, at that time, the best car chase ever filmed. It
pitted a Ford Mustang, against a Dodge Charger. The chase ran an incredible
9 minutes and 42 seconds, and began in the downtown area of
quickly spreading out to the
weeks to film and required 2 Mustangs and 2 Chargers. All but one of the vehicles
were destroyed during the filming. McQueen and stunt driver Bud Ekins shared the driving duties.
Ekins was also the stunt double for McQueen in the 1963 hit The Great Escape doing the motorcycle
jump featured in the film. The chase was supposed to be filmed at speeds below 85 mph, but the
vehicles eventually reached speeds in excess of 110.
McQueen’s character, Lt. Frank Bullitt, was actually based on San Francisco Homicide inspector
Dave Toschi, right down to Toschi’s fast draw shoulder holster. Toschi was the lead investigator on
the still unsolved “Zodiac” murders. This fact was not lost on the writers of the 2007 thriller Zodiac. In
it, the character Dave Toschi is ribbed about having a shoulder rig similar to Frank Bullitt’s.
