This is to wish all BHS Class of 70 a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Hoping that we all stay in contact with each other via e-mail or this web site. God Bless you all. See you at the Reunions. LOL, Clift
Thirty five years and doing well. I saw the list of our classmates who have died and I can only think of our time at BHS as an experience that cannot be duplicated. They are part of my heart. I am a solo practioner in Virginia. I served 10 years in the Air Force and had two years as the physician to the President. Not a bad job but with only two patients a little dull. I was a flight surgeon with an F16 squadron, like riding a roller coaster every day. Got three boys, one wife of thirty years and an old Volvo. Not much else. Would like to hear from any of you.

What a wonderful site Bill, thanks for the memories! Wanted to give my current email: Heleetiwanda@aol.com
My husband Ed & I moved back to Panama last July It was the best decision we have ever made. I am working as the Learning Resource Specialist at the International School. We have students from 46 nations. Ed plays a lot of golf and has joined Summit and the Panama Senior Golf Association. We are looking to buy a lot in Rio Mar. If anyone is coming this way drop us a line. I am glad to folks signing the web page again, was beginning to think it was on its last legs. Tom & Sue-send your current email, I don't have it.
CHS class of 1970 -- pretty cool! I'm jealous our class doesn't have a site!!
Hey Bill. This is a great place to come when one is seeking "connection", eh? For this and much more I thank you. Just today I read Charles Adair's obituary in, of all places, the Boston Globe. This is certainly not the best way to convey one's thoughts about such matters but, if anyone is in contact with Carol and Sally, please convey my deepest sympathies and condolences.
Would have been part of class of 1970, My dad was transferred stateside 1967. I went to 9th grade at Curundu Jr. High 7th and 8th at Diablo Hghts.

I think the Home Page is great. I keep thinking of all the fond memories of going to school and being raised there.
Hope everyone had a great reunion. Here's my new e-mail. As always, great job on the home page.
Bill, the web page is great as usual. Haven't been on it so long, busy working, working. Missed the reunion this year but will be back for next year. Hope to go home to Panama next year. Friends out there, keep in touch.
Always nice to come back for a visit -- good friends, good times and comforting memories! Thanks for doing such an awesome job, Bill. I have a new personal email address: email@example.com. Best wishes to all, Christine
Kurt Muse (BHS 68) has recently had his book "6 Minutes to Freedom" released. It is available at Barnes and Noble and through Amazon.com It is a MUST READ for anyone whoever loved the country of Panama.
A blast from the past. I recently had a visit with my Dad and he gave me a couple of copies of a Booklet called the Canal Record. Seems he was talking with someone he had just met and the conversation turned to Panama. He saved the booklets for me and after leafing through them, it prompted me to see what kind of info was available for the year I graduated. Guess I will have to pull the old yearbook out. I haven't had a chance to check out the whole website yet, but I am looking forward to possibly looking up some old friends. I am really impressed to find so much current info. Nice job!!!
Was very glad that it was there. Loved the BHS plaque and front view of old BHS!
cool beaners! I graduated in 1972
I just wanted to check in and provide my updated email address - firstname.lastname@example.org.
Awesome : I am the class of 59
Edward Filo, former Stuart News reporter, dies at 55 By JOE CRANKSHAW December 12, 2006 Edward Filo, a longtime writer for The Stuart News, died Monday in the Palm Beach County Hospice at Bethesda Memorial Hospital after a massive stroke on Dec. 4. He turned 55 years old on Sunday. "He was at peace," said his fiancée, Christina Reuben, a nurse at the hospice unit, "and he was surrounded by people who love him." Filo worked for The Stuart News from 1982 to 2000. He covered various beats in Martin and St. Lucie counties but specialized in government reporting. He left the paper to take a job with a business publishing house in Palm Beach County. Filo was on a team of reporters who won the 1997 Florida Society of Newspaper Editors First Place award for deadline reporting. He was born to Edward and Catherine Filo in Balboa, the U.S. Canal Zone in 1951. He was educated in Canal Zone schools, graduating from high school in 1970, and became a police officer for the Canal Zone Police. He later came to the United States and graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in journalism. He went to work for a weekly paper in Labelle. In 1982, he joined the staff of The Stuart News, where he was an instant hit, recalls Denise Shaughnessy, a former News receptionist. "The women all thought he was a combination of Juan Valdez and Tom Selleck," she said. Filo bought a home near hers on Rocky Point and a lifelong friendship began. Filo and Reuben were scheduled to marry at the end of the month. "He was a kind, loving and fun person," Reuben said. "I will treasure his memory forever." The couple had returned Sunday from visiting his mother, father, sister and brother in Dothan, Ala. "He cooked Thanksgiving dinner for the whole family," recalled his mother on Friday night. "He was a wonderful son." Reuben said Filo told her he was not feeling well on Dec. 3, but delayed going to the hospital until Dec. 4. While in the emergency room he suffered what she called a "thyroid storm," which damaged most of his major organs and triggered the stroke. Filo had suffered from Graves Disease, which affects the thyroid, for years. Filo is survived by his mother and father, sister and brother. Funeral plans are incomplete. Maggy Hurchalla, former Martin County commissioner, said: "I have a great fondness for Ed Filo. He was the kind of reporter who wanted to get the story right, not just get it out. "One of the funniest stories about Ed deals with the time there was a big debate over Hobe Sound Plantation, a proposed development in Hobe Sound. The planners devised a detailed plan on who they would have deal with the press. They even made out a written plan which discussed area newspapers and individual reporters. I got a copy of it and called Ed one night. I said, 'This is Deep Throat and I have this document, how do I get it to you?' He said, 'Put it in the back of my truck.' I did one night, and he took it from there."
