I just read an obit for Robert Bline. Although I did not know him I just want to note his passing.

Remembering Bob Teaford

He was a kid with wild red hair, a big heart, brains and a bit of a rebellious attitude.

Most everybody called him Teaf, including Teaf himself. We shared a class or two during our senior year at Napa High and that's how I came to know him.

In fact, my favorite story about Teaf happened that year. And it all stemmed from an assembly one day in the gym.

The administration gathered us all together to announce a new tardy policy that would take effect the following Monday. I think the time between classes was to be shortened and students who were late to class would have to report to the main office.

That did not sit well with Teaf. Not at all.

He went to work later that day or the next morning in the school's print shop. When he was done, he emerged with a stack of business cards that had just three words printed on them: Be Late Monday.

After class he started walking around the campus handing them to students. He was raging against the machine, and I think he wanted to clog the process with hundreds of tardy students to protest the new policy and show how dumb it was.

But he didn't get very far. The dean of boys or a teacher stopped him, confiscated the cards and marched him to the principal's office. Teaf was suspended for a few days and the tardy policy went into effect with little fanfare.

Even though it was cut short, I thought it was a great protest. A few years later I was in a waiting room at a business in Napa. There was a bulletin board across from where I sat. I was astonished to see one of the Be Late Monday cards pinned to the board.

I last saw him at one of our class reunions a couple of decades back. About a year ago I found his phone number and gave him a call. During our conversation I asked what sparked his one-man protest.

Teaf explained that after gym class his next class was on the south side of the main building, which meant he'd always be late. You'll remember the gym was quite a walk from the main building where the halls were packed like a Tokyo subway car with students struggling to get to their next class.

I'll always remember Teaf for his futile, Quixote-like protest. And because he was funny and nice and an all-around good guy.

He may have gone down with his Be Late Monday campaign. But he didn't go down without a fight. And that, perhaps, was the most important point of all.

The next meeting of the NVUSD Board will be May 9th at 6pm. We had a good turn out at the rally and the meeting on the 6th, but let's make it bigger and better on the 9th!!! Come help us pack the auditorium and let the opposition view from the board room where the overflow may be directed. In regard to signatures, we have three separate petitions, two online and one with hard copy signatures. The total of signatures in these petitions is 4600+.

Here is Another Way to Show Your Support for Our Beloved Indian Symbol
Go to this petition created by Jawana Hummingbird Kitchens class of 65.
Sign it and enter your class year. It has received over 2287 signatures as of Apr. 8th. Please contact others that may not have signed it and send them to the link below. Lots of people on our side. Would be awesome if that many people show up at the meeting. As you know, we had the Apr 6th meeting in the auditorium. Please come!! Help us pack the auditorium. https://www.ipetitions.com/petition/save-the-napa-high-school-indian-mascot.
