Burbank High School Class of '67 ...
I was at our local middle school (Carson Valley Middle School) doing my "Nicholas" presentation about understanding not excusing addiction, the ripple effect of decisions, and how methamphetamine affected my family and saw that the kids had an assignment to learn this song ... done by our own Anson Heimlick!!! Anyway, thought I'd share!

BHS Hi-Life Newspapers 1964-1967



Paul Dean Fitzgerald, BHS '67, has uploaded several issues of Burbank High's Hi-Life newspaper for us all to enjoy.

Here is the link and below is her email:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/30712359@N08/

Thanks so much, Paula!!!

OK - I uploaded all of what I have for 1964. I'm still back and forth about whether this is the best way to create an archive - I'd so much rather have them as multi-page .pdf files.

But why don't we go public with a link to what I have so far. Maybe someone has a better idea of how to make this archive more user friendly. Even better, maybe some folks have more issues of the newspaper - I'd be happy to scan them and make them available to all. I've got most, but not all, of the issues from our high school years - fall 1964 to spring 1967. It would be great to add other years.

I can be reached, as you know, at paulamdfitzgerald@yahoo.com.

Snail mail, in case anyone has another cache of the newspapers for me to scan is:

Andrea's Latest Dog Tale!

From Andrea Moxness, BHS 67:

Please see my latest dog transport story at: http://www.underdograilroad.blogspot.com
Hope you enjoy it!
Thanks for your support.
Andrea

Kelly, The Hound of Lickervilles


Is this a beautiful dog, or what? Kelly, a most wonderful hound-mix, was my latest rescue transport. This picture speaks volumes about her.

Yesterday, my friend, Carol, and I traveled to a little town called Bethel, about one hour and 45 minutes away, to meet Kelly behind the Midway Diner -- which was a step back in time. Way back. But that's another story for another time. After all, underdograilroad is about dog transports, not diners.

Kelly, without a doubt, was the quietest of the ten dogs who arrived by three separate cars from Ohio. We were given an excited barking concert when the other nine dogs realized they were about to be released from their taxis for a little walk and drinkie-poo before being loaded into a large van destined for a safe-harbor shelter in Connecticut. Our little Kelly, however, was coming with us as she had a foster family to welcome her in Trooper, PA.

Kelly seemed genuinely happy to meet me and Carol. As you may have guessed, she was very generous with her "lickerville" kisses, and here I am graciously accepting one. The barking symphony continued, while Kelly remained quiet. Carol spent some time admiring the handsomeness and beauty of the other dogs, while I watered and walked Kelly. I was already in love by then.

Finally, we loaded her into the back seat of my car, and we were off. As has happened so many times on previous transports, Kelly wanted to sit in front with us. She was a strong little devil, so after traveling only a mile or two down Route 78, we took an offramp, pulled into a gas station, and transferred Carol into the back seat. I didn't have a towel for Carol to lay on, so she had to share Kelly's. But no one seemed to mind. Kelly settled down then, content to no longer be the only one relegated to the back seat. The rest of the ride was uneventful.

Kelly's foster father, Brian, was at the appointed spot to meet us, and Kelly took to him right away. Perhaps she understood she would stay with him and his family for a little while, until she found her forever home. Brian told us that he has fostered 31 dogs over the last two years. That makes Brian pretty darn special in my book. That equals more than one foster dog per month. He spoke about how his family and several neighbors look forward to the arrival of each foster dog, and that his fosters always meet the other dogs in the neighborhood. I'm confident that Kelly will enjoy her temporary life with Brian and his family. Brian works from home, so he's able to spend a lot of time with each dog in his care. So hip, hip hooray for Brian! Now, there's a hero!

So, another successful transport. Brian promises he'll send me an update on Kelly. She is totally adoptable, a real people pleaser who loves anyone and everyone. You may check her out at: http://www.petfinder.com/petdetails/20821987.

I'm home today, nursing my lonely heart, since I loved and lost so quickly. But Kelly is the best, and I just know she'll find her forever home real soon. Or who knows? Maybe she'll even end up with Brian forever. You never can tell.

Bruckner/Sergent Reunion in Durango, CO



Sue Sergent, BHS '67, sent this great photo of her with Dona Foy Bruckner, BHS '67 and Scott Bruckner, BHS '66 from yesterday!

Sue wrote, "I got to share a very special time yesterday. Dona and Scott were on their way to Taos and decided to go a bit out of their way to visit Durango. Dona and I had lunch while Scott went off and did his own thing. (Smart man to stay away from two motor mouths.) We had such a good time and hope they come back for a longer stay. Two very sweet people!"

Service Tomorrow for Edward Danks, Former Burbank Pastor


Edward Royal Danks
1931 - 2011

Received this email today from Cathy Nicholls Coyle...

Hi Cathy:

Just heard the sad news that Pastor Edward R. Danks passed away on August 29, 2011. There will be a Memorial Service for him tomorrow, September 22, at 1:00 pm at the First Presbyterian Church on Olive Ave. in Burbank. He was Pastor of the First Presbyterian Church from 1963 to 1977.

He served as Moderator of the Presbytery of San Fernando in 1970. In 1977, following his service in Burbank, Rev. Danks was called to Noroton Presbyterian Church in Darien, CT where he served until his retirement in 1996. In retirement he served as a volunteer missionary in Kenya, East Africa; as seasonal pastor at St. Timothy’s Chapel in Montana; and as pastor-in-residence at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary in Pennsylvania. In Kenya, where he served for five years, he taught at the Presbyterian Seminary in Kikuyu and developed the seminary library.

Rev. Danks is survived by his wife, Coreen; a son, Edward Stephen; a daughter, Debra Lynn Annin (Scott); his brothers, Howard and Richard; a sister, Marilyn Edleston; six grandsons, two great grandsons and one great granddaughter. His first wife, Barbara, and a son, Tom, predeceased him. Memorial services are being held in North Carolina, Connecticut and California.

Rest in Peace dear Pastor Danks, you will be remembered by the many lives you touched.

Thanks.

Great Burbank Leader Article on the Anson Williams Charity Classic

Local alums link up to raise funds

August 30, 2011 | 4:45 p.m.

Burbank and Burroughs High School alumni, some who hadn’t seen one another in decades, joined forces on the links of DeBell Golf Course for the Anson Williams Charity Classic to raise funds for the two schools’ alumni associations, Service Dogs for American Veterans and the Davis-Gingell Foundation this past Friday.

“We are very appreciative that Anson Williams, who attended Burbank High School and of course is best known for his role as Potsy on the classic television series ‘Happy Days,’ loaned his name to the tournament to help make it a success,” said the event’s coordinator, Guy Gingell.

The brainchild of Gingell, Friday’s tournament, along with the foundation he oversees with his wife, Allison Davis-Gingell, stemmed from a set of circumstances involving an old Burbank High classmate. “I had heard, through Facebook, that one of my classmates, Bob Holst, was terminally ill,” Gingell said. “He was living in Pittsburgh, and when I called and told him I wanted to fly back and see him, he said not to come because he was too sick.”

Desperately wanting to do something for his old pal, Gingell learned Holst had not seen his two sons, John and Eric Holst, in years, and that they didn’t have the financial resources to fly back and see him. “I put up the money, and the kids went to see him just a few days before he died,” Gingell said.

When word of his act of kindness spread, it sparked a domino effect that saw other Burbank High alumni send checks to repay Gingell. It also caught the attention of a wealthy businessman acquaintance who was so impressed by Gingell’s compassion and generosity that he assisted the Gingells in establishing a foundation to help others in need.

Friday’s tournament, sponsored by Volvo Rents and Community Chevrolet and led by team captains Mike Feix representing Burbank High and actor Clint Howard representing Burroughs, included participation by Burbank Parks Commissioner Mickey DePalo, NBA Hall of Fame player and coach Lenny Wilkens, Randy Wilkens, Brigid and Bob Graham, Betty Worland, Jim Grasse, John Whitt, Barry Erickson, Ron Panich and the Holst boys — John and Eric who were accompanied by John’s fiancée, Tanna Byrne.

Others who enjoyed the day on the links included Tess Apinchapone, Bob Bauman, Chuck Berry, Joe Bronlend, Barry Cadwallader, Sean Ceglinsky, James Chae, Sean Cyphers, Kelsey Danzeisen, Brady Dunayer, Bob Elliot, Matt Flynn, Peter Fong, Bruce Frishette, Joany Gao, Marty Garrison, John and Tony Gofredo, Bob Graham, Steve Hamilton, Allan Hoffmaster, Dave Hourigan, Chris Kesicbasian, Keith Kimura, Lou Lanteri, Patrick Londono, Pavipa Losakul, Al Martens, Tim McGuire, Mark McMillan, Don Melton and Chris Morris.

Also in attendance were Carol Furry Mosher, Alfred Ogas, Bob Pappert, Dennis Pelch, Ed Perez, Larry Phillips, Haley Pirruccello, Gary Richards, Steve Ross, Ruben Santa Cruz, John Schilling, Charley Schultz, Branko Sevic, Gary Sexton, Chuck Visnic, Criag Wilde, Brett Wilson and Chuck Woods.
