To Hear From You
Although many of you thought that because we
named one of our membership levels after Earl, that he was no longer with us.
Well, I am happy to report that he has written to say he is alive and well and
would love to hear from anyone who remembers him.
My last email noted that FR was coming back. Today I read that it will be
closed. I guess that's progress in NYC. As for me, I'm still around and hope not
to be closed soon. Mail from former FR students helps.
Attached are 3 photos - 2 taken on our last trip in Hong Kong and one with my
wife, Lynn Kearney, at Thanksgiving at my son's house in Oakland.

think you might be interested in a story from today's Times,1/04, page B1,
in an article about Bloomberg stating that his "efforts to curb violence had
been so successful that 5 of 16 schools...would be removed from the
program." Later the story continues: Bloomberg said this "at a news
conference yesterday at Far Rockaway High School in Queens, one of the
schools that is being removed from the program."
guess that's one way to remind the alumni and teachers of good old FR what's
going on. I didn't even know that FRHS was an endangered species.
me, I'm still going on and in reasonable health and still happily married to
Lynn Kearney - former English teacher at Beach Channel to whom I was
introduced at a UFT rally those many years ago. I still get mail from those
who remember me and appreciate it greatly. Still doing pottery and now
engaged in digital photography as well (would you like a current photo of me
and Lynn?). We travel a lot, since Lynn's work takes her (and me as free
loader) all over the world. Off to London in February and then Hong Kong and
Sydney in March.
so much for the FR site.
Please note change of address and e-mail. Also keep the mail
