MICK MARIETTA IS IN A NURSING HOME WHERE HE WILL REMAIN FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE AFTER A STROKE. HE WOULD ENJOY PHONE CALLS FROM HIS CHILDHOOD FRIENDS TO CHEER HIM UP. His number is 573 885-4500, ask for Mick Marietta. It may be difficult to communicate with him. Mail address is Cuba Manor, 210 Eldon Drive, Cuba, MO 65453.


We seem to all be suffering a common problem these days, WHERE DID OUR LIVES GO? Our brains seem to still be 18, but our bodies are talking a different language. Sarah Orne Jewett puts it much more eloquently than do I:

“Neither of my companions was troubled by her burden of years. I hoped in my heart that I might be like them as I lived on into age, and then smiled to think that I too was no longer very young. So we always keep the same hearts, though our outer framework fails and shows the touch of time.”

Our KU Pals must be so proud!

Well, I'm sure all our classmates who are KU alums, or have any KU konnections, and there are many in KHS65, are just thrilled with the recent purchase of the Naismith basketball document, but if you don't know the details, here they are:

The third bit of history [sold at auction recently] was the document that listed the 13 rules for the game of basketball invented by James Naismith in 1891. It sold for the highest price of all, $4,338,500. The money from the sale will go to the Naismith International Basketball Foundation.

The auction results were big news on TV and really caught my attention. My only connection to basketball is that my daughter played it well in high school, lettered I think, and at KHS I broke a finger playing it, thus ending what surely wouldn't have been a stellar career anyway! But I do have lots of KU pals and am just thinking this is really a wonderful thing to have happened for the Basketball Foundation, lots of good will come from that money. Jayhawks Rock!
