Comments: Saying hi to all–I was out of the country for the 30th reunion–using my archaeology degree-but ssorry that I missed out. I really enjoyed the 20th reunion. I am currently living in Gainesville but work as an environmental inspector in the Orlando area.I of course-am still playing sports and working out–keeping me young at heart. I would like to thank the –many people who contacted me (after seeing me on the UFC and other MMA shows) when I was training MMA Fighters out of my Gym in Tempe, AZ . An update I sold the gym and and returned to Florida to help take care of my mother who fell ill–but thankfully she is now healthy again. For those who remember my brother Jeff and my sister Lisa–they both live here in Gainesville too. If anyone would like to get together for a mini reunion-please contact me with an invite. I would be happy to attend and reconnect with everyone. Best wishes to all.

Comments: THANK YOU to all of you who came out for our Hootenanny to celebrate 25 years since graduation.

We enjoyed the company of over 40 people at the pub walk downtown Friday and then about 60 folks showed up at the picnic Sunday.

There was alot of enthusiasm for making the hootenanny an annual event.

I truly hope you will log onto facebook, search for the group called Gulf High Class of 1984 and peruse all the (literally hundreds) of photos, discuss topics of interest and make plans for next year.

I heard alot of comments about the lovely MIX of people, the fabulous folks who comprise our class, and the acceptance of each of us, as the adults we’ve become.

I was honored to be among you this weekend.

Thank you all for making it FABULOUS!

Comments: The hootenanny for the GHS class of 1984 will be occurring Sunday May 17 at James Grey Preserve.

This is a family focused event, an amped up potluck and biggest thrill of the day is the pleasure we will find in sharing aold memories while making new ones with some of the most wonderful people you know: the 1984 Gulf High Buccaneers.

Write me for me details or, better yet, log onto the facebook events page (called the) GHS class of 1984 hootenanny.

There are still rumors floating for possible shared class doings on Friday and Saturday. If something solid is happening, wheehaa, we’ll let you know. If it does not, enjoy your time in the area, and we’ll see you on Sunday!

Comments: There’s a 25th reunion being planned for MAY 15, 16 and 17. We want to see you there classmates. So far, we’ve got a very simple plan coming together.

Janice and I have rolled together some loose ideas for a FAMILY oriented pot luck picnic (as in, bring some yummy food to share, please) for Sunday at a local NPR park.

Then Terri jumped on to start the ball rolling for a dinner at a local hall, and something else, but we dunno what.

Things are only just starting, but we’d love to have you mark your calendars for the weekend.

For more info write to me at spellbindingsherry@yahoo.com (make sure you put “GHS reunion” in the subject line)

A bunch of us are on Facebook, where there’s an events page for the reunion too, ~Gulf High class of 1984 hootenanny~ which can be accessed by my page there.

Contact me, Janice or Terri if you want to know more details as they develop.

We’re looking forward to enjoying good times with old friends.

Comments: For those of you coming to town for the Alumni Invasion, be sure to take a wee break to come enjoy the Haunted Woods behind the mall.

It’s an inexpensive event ($2 adults, $1 kids…with vendors too) which will be raising money to support what’s still left of the natural environment here in west Pasco. There’s a slew of terrific GHS kids (the P-Town Juggalos) who are participating in the event.

Haunted Woods is happening Friday and Saturday (Oct 24 & 25) from 6 pm -9 pm.

Plenty of candy for the kiddos, and fearsome hauntings for those who can survive the path… (you may want to bring a change of clothes, in case you wet your pants)

I’m really class of 1971 but I’m trying to contact students who graduated from Gulf in the early 80’s that went to Ridgewood junior high school in the late 70’s (geography and history). I taught at Ridgewood from 78-85 and would like to hear from people who attended Ridgewood Jr.

Thanks.

Comments: Am STILL waiting to hear from Chris Manglaris (your steed finally died, age 39). I am presently finishing up my masters in Educational Leadership at St. Leo University. I graduated from USF last year with a bachelor’s in Special Education. Am now secretary of PDK, an educational leadership organization. Not sure what direction I will be going in in the near future… have resigned thus far, and am looking for greener pastures…

Met an alumni of GHS, Hilda (Font) Martin. Run into Bill Moffit once in a while, as well as Susanne (Kline) Penna and Traci Cuff.

On a more somber note, I found out a few days ago that Inger Montgomery passed away last year. She and I were horse trainers/instructors at my parents farm, Black Oaks Ranch. She also boarded there. After she left our farm, she headed for Cheval, and during that time, got into a series of car accidents. She was never the same after that.

Susan Porter and Carol Cummings also died shortly after graduating, but I think everyone already knows that.

It is truly great to be alive. WE are getting to the age where we shouldnt take thing for granted anymore. There are more days behind us then are ahead. Innocence of youth gives way to sacrifice for the future of our children. Oh well….. those were my thoughts at this particular moment as the kids are running through the house, wife driving me crazy to help clean house. I think i’ll play golf.

Hope everyone is well & to answer Sherry’s question “patience & creativity”

I will try to check the site more often now that I have found it. Shoot out a note to talk or if anyone is rolling through Chi town.

Comments: I would just like to point out that the picture labeled “Turansky Rennie” — the one from the Friday night cocktail hour showing Mike Turansky and a very lovely woman — is actually a picture of Mike Turansky and my wife, Kristy. I did not have a sex change. That’s me on the right getting cut out of the frame. Just sayin’.

I’ll be in NPR Dec 24 – 27 (I’ll miss the Dec. 23 gathering…bummer). Post here if anything interesting is happening on those days.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Comments: Any more reunion pics?. Any way those pictures were great.

Some people changed, but i was impressed by some still looking the same. like Joey Mcphail, dude you were the coolest. Mike Turanski, and the hottie but snotty Terri Parnell. Some those fine chicks who wouldnt even look at me in high school look like old hefers now. And I grow more handsome as I grow older. Ron Durbin, I used to be scared of him (NOT), but his belly is as big as mine. But you still look good.

ALso props go out to Lisa DeSantis. Back in the day she and sabo (dont remember her first name) had the cutest shaped Buttocks before big Butts were cool.

Also big muscle head roid rage Zimmy, I remember Vincent Sisco (god rest his soul) punched you in the mouth when you weighed 150 lbs.

Bill Mcarthy, you were so sensitive then. that bald head is you, HEY wasnt you the subject of a story in the police section of the pasco times.

dont worry i wont expose you here on this forum.

Denise Dassau, now thats a name i remember. I think she lives on the same block as me in veterans village back in 82. nothing bad to say about her except she was fine lookin.

Well anyways everyone looks good. My memories of Gulf High are fond. I never got beat up (dad was a well known cop) and only got called N*gger a few hundred times. I hold no animosity. I didnt mind sitting alone during lunch and hanging out with the “lodies” because i wasnt good enough to hang with the “jocks”. Some poeple were cool some people were nasty to me indeed. If you people knew me now Youd like me, but back in the day being black wasnt cool. Micheal Jackson wasnt even popular then. I dated this girl once ( i wont say her name) but we couldnt tell anyone. New Port Richey was country then.

The world has changed much since then and i hope some of you have become more racially tollerant. But now i have 3 boys and a girl, married,and i have a theater in my house. I travel around and am into mountainbiking. Journey is still my fav rock band (no i dont listen to rap). well any way i hope i didnt offend anyone.

Please feel free to respond because all i hear in this forum is the good things about high school but in all of us there were at least some bad memories.

Comments: I have to write to agree with the past two entries. I graduated from Gulf in the class 1987. Like you Sherry, even though I dont kow who you are, I too, found wonderful happiness in someone elses trash. I fell madly in love with Bill Brandt, also from the class of 1984. We have been married for over 5 years and believe me I thank all of those OTHER girls (if you want to call them that, especially the last one that impacted his life for so many LONG wasteful years), but I feel everything happens for a reason and I am glad that she treated him they way she did so he could find TRUE happiness so his whole life wasnt wasted. We are very happy and I am glad there are other girls out there who feel the same way that I do. Congratulations Sherry and best of luck. I finally found my best friend. Believe me people will talk but talk is cheap. People that have to talk have nothing better to do and are usually jealous. Live your life and enjoy everyday you have with him, life is too short……. May God bless your realtionship the way he has ours and continues to do so everyday.

I am going on my 18th year at United Parcel Service. “What can brown do for you”? We are still living in the area of Port Richey and are looking forward to seeing everyone on Saturday night!!!

While I am not actually a member of the reunion committee (the commute was killing me), I HAVE heard it through the grapevine that if you are planning to attend, NOW would be a REALLY GOOD time to send in those checks. As someone with a bit of events planning experience, I can attest to the need for a positive cash flow — so bust out those checkbooks, and see you soon. Details below.

As the preliminary information has been up on classmates since December, we will be sending you a packet of information via email very soon.

There will be a reception Friday night from 8-midnight, Saturday picnic from 11am – 2pm and then our banquet from 6-9pm that same evening. Since many may need to fly home or visit families on Sunday, we have planned some optional items for those staying on property or wanting to play golf.

Currently, I manage a Retirement Complex for Seniors and the Disabled located in McKinney (burb of Dallas). Hope I can make it to the Reunion!

Comments: Ron Durbin
From NYC to NPR, I’ve had to down shift and it’s all good. Back in good ol’ New Port Richey, FL. I sold my commercial recording and graphic arts studio in NYC and moved back to town to care for my sick Mom after my Dad passed. Family first! I’m still single, can’t see settling down yet. I’ll probably get most changed again since I’m short haired again and packed on a pound or ten (x3). I’m selling Real Estate now and doing just fine.
I keep in relatively close touch with Teo, T-Bird, Big Daddy and sometimes see ol’ Bowie. If you all don’t know who they are, It’s Matt Musial, Tony Lehr, Sean Davis and Scott Bowman. Ran into Carmine Cirone at Big Daddy’s place one time this year and saw Brian Deehan in my R.E. adventures. Brian Deehan is working at the Jailhouse with Kurt Gardener. I see one of the Seltman twins once in a while, but they are always on the road with a flashlight or something when I see them. Hee hee…I was chatting via email and IM with Brandi Sanchez and Katie Parker/Taulbee for a while but lost touch, only to find Brandi again through email from Tony, last week. That’s that…
I certainly wish you all the very best in life and hope to see you at the reunion.
Let’s Party!

Comments: Okay…last post for a while, I promise.
But I have two questions:
1) I’m wondering if anyone else if having the same experience I am: LOTS of familiar names; having a hard time matching the faces in my head with the names on these pages. Just curious if some industrious, computer literate person with a scanner has committed our old yearbooks to a digital/web format. My yearbooks are back in Florida (Mom, I swear I’ll get all my stuff out of the garage THIS YEAR) and it would be great to see the faces that go with these posts. Barring that, does anyone know where we can all upload one or two current photos?
2) Like many of you, my high school years were defined as much by the classes of 1982, and as the class of 1984. I wonder if there is any way to include those people into some (non-paid) aspect of our reunion. It would be easy enough to post on the etc. versions of this message board, but I’m not sure what we could invite them to. Any thoughts?
Eager to se all of you in June. Write if you like,

Comments: WOW–WHERE HAS ALL OF OUR LIVES GONE–20 YEARS–THAT IS SO INCREDIBLE! It is so nice to see so many familiar names on the list–hopefully there will be more. I had forgotten so many details from this time period in my life–but a RUSH of memories have avalanched down upon me when I stumbled onto this site! As many of you may or may not remember–I graduated early to sign and play professional baseball. After 11 years of trying-in the MINOR LEAGUES-my playing career ended with only the 1994 strike year as a Major League attribute. Luckily I was smart enough to continue my education late in the 1980’s and early 1990’s. I obtained 2 college degrees- the latter being in ARCHAEOLOGY. Like many of you -I have traveled far and wide since my days in New Port Richety–haha–!! As a baseball player–I crisscrossed the country in the MINORS and played winter ball in exotic locales–like the Dominican Republic, Venezuela, and Hawaii. I have worked as a pro-baseball scout, radio d.j. nightclub manager and an archaeologist. I still have my passion for SPORTS, ART and FLIRTING. I have never been married only because I traveled so much playing baseball and I was too stupid when I was younger to realize the really important things in life. I still hope to meet the right woman someday! I have a home on the NORTH SHORE OF OAHU Hawaii–ALMOST GOT KILLED IN TURKEY right before the last war while on an ARCHAEOLOGICAL DIG and have many friends who are no longer with us. I wonder how many of you say this to yourself as I do now ” If I knew then what I know now “–What I thought was important in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s is so irrelavant to what LIFE is really about. But that was part of being young-and even though I made mistakes-luckily after awhile I learned from them! I wouldn’t trade them in for anything in the world. I.E. If I could have taken SUSAN “SUNKIST” (she knows what I mean)–to the junior prom in 83–God I shoulda–If I could have told GINA JOHNSTON 1 last time that she was my friend–God I shoulda!! I revel in watching my brothers (JEFF) 3 children grow up as I navigate this bumpy rode we call Life! I think about the girls I shoulda married-I stil haven’t found her-but I have finally found PEACE–it only took me 20 years but I FINALLY GOT IT–LAST YEAR–I FINALLY GREW UP! I would love to hear from anyone from the GULF JR HIGH AND HIGH YEARS 1977-1984. I hope I am in the country next JUNE 94 so that I can attend the REUNION–and maybe someday I will still meet MS. RIGHT. GOOD LUCK TO ALL and BEST WISHES!!! JAMES LAMB

Comments: Talk about a walk down memory lane. I just found this site and am glad to finally find a place where we don’t have to pay to connect with old friends. I have been in Michigan since graduating from college in 1988. I have been married to Curt for 8 years and we have two children – Michael 4 1/2 and Maddie 3. After 12 years with EDS as a Systems Analyst I decided to stay home with the kids. At this point I will probably not be at the reunion – I no longer have any family in the area and that means no one to watch the kids for the evening events. I will miss seeing everyone, but please drop me an e-mail – I’d love to catch up.

We need all this time to make arrangements and save money! I do plan on bringing the kids to the Saturday BBQ. It’s because of the BBQ mostly that we are bringing the kids to FL and making a weeklong family vacation out of it. They want to go to Universal so anyone that has connections for tickets or just information there, PLEASE let me know. I spend way to much time on the computer, so PLEASE contact me. I’m stretching my memory to see how many people I remember! Hope all is well with you and yours!

Comments: On a whim, I Googled GHS-NPR, and found this site! Going to have to come down for the big 20 year reunion. Brief Hund synopsis: Went to UF after GHS, graduated in 89 with BS in Bus Admin – Managment/Finance, got married to a lovely coed named Yvonne, two years later went back to school at USF, graduated with BS + 5th year in Accounting, went on to get CPA license in 1996. Worked in public accounting for a while; got the “help my fellow man” bug, worked for a couple of non-profits for 7 years; am now CFO of a major home-builder in Jacksonville/St. Augustine (Also own my own CPA firm, when client base is big enough will do that full time). We also own a golf course, so it’s free golf for me (only problem is that I am not very good). Oh, did I mention my 4 children: Kristen 9, Melissa 6, Trevor 3, and David 1 1/2. Celebrated 13th wedding anniversary this past June. Life is good, but refuse to believe it’s been almost 20 years since high school. Aren’t we supposed to be the young ones? What the heck happened?

Comments: Hello everyone! I just found out about this site from Shane Luepkes at a recent dinner party. I married an alumni from 1980 and have three children. Susanne Kline married Don Penna. Katie and Bill Moffit got married. Jim Edwards married someone in my family, lives in Michigan and has something to do with engineering. Tracy Cuff lives out west and has a daughter. Scott Mathieson lives locally, got married and has children (two daughters I believe). Kenny Wolowicz got married and lives in NPR and has two boys. Unfortunately, Carroll Cummings was killed this past winter in Chicago (she was there for a wedding). I would love to hear news about Scott Pizzo, Chris Manglaris, Lisa Oliveri and anyone else from Mr. Lane’s 5th period Composition Class (the wildest class to ever grace Gulf High). Keep in touch…

Comments: I understand these two classmates died years ago, Susan in a plane crash and Charles from a drug overdose. I wonder when each died though, any details mates? I learned about both deaths many years after their occurances and began pondering this: WHEN is death noted? Certainly a body dies upon the moment, but for those who remain unaware of their passing…they continue to live in the hearts of those who dont know as well as in our memories. So are they really DEAD? I think not. I think they’ve just moved on to the next experience. I pray they are now in Painless Peace.

From 1994-2000 I worked in the CIA’s Directorate of Operations, and between 1997-1999, I was appointed as a US Diplomat to Estonia. For those of you who did not do well in geography, Estonia was part of the former Soviet Union and lies 50 miles south of Helsinki, Finland. I spent a great deal of time traveling throughout Scandinavia and Europe. Just this past April, I left the CIA, and currently I am a Senior Advertising and Public Relations executive for a prestigious firm in DC. Would love to hear from some of my 1984 classmates! George Manzo was kind enough to contact me and tell me about this website. Cheers!

Comments: Home in NPR for the holidays, and thought I’d look up a couple of old friends. I still keep in touch with a couple of Class of ’84 grads, such as Tim McCabe, Ross Wolf, Jessie (Hughes) Holleman. If anyone else from ’84 is out there, give a shout. Also, check out ClassMates.com. There are 30 or 40 grads there, too. Go Bucs!
