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.”

KHS PIONEERS WIN STATE CHAMPIONSHIP 31 - 7

For the first time ever, KHS Pioneers are the Class 5 State Champions!  Having played well all season and stayed on top, they brought home the trophy last night beating Fort Osage 31 - 7. Below is the announcement already presented via email to the Alumni community.  You'll have to go to the Alumni page to make the hotlinks work, www.khsalumni.org.  Never a group to miss a fund-raising opportunity, it's obvious that Jim and Ginger were hard at work as soon as it was apparent we'd be in the running.  Way to go Development folks at KHS!

CONGRATS to the Pioneers!  And thanks to Pete and Dixie Nardie, KHS64, for providing a play by play report on Facebook last night!

The Pioneers are State Champs!
