I am deeply saddened to report that Alan Redini passed away this January.  He had been increasingly ill with a degenerative neuro-muscular condition.

Early in our freshman year, Al extended his hand and introduced himself to me, and we soon became close friends.  We were each best man at the other's wedding, and maintained the friendship throughout our lives.  I treasured Al for his kindness, creativity, character, humor, resilience, and much more.  I cannot help but smile when I think of him.

Alan's wife has asked me to let Lane alumni know that his yearbooks (in good shape) from all four years are available.  Let me know if anyone is interested, and we can make arrangements.

I remember having Mr. Rico as my homeroom teacher. I can still get shivers trying to name the composer in Music Theory class! Miss those days very much. Lol

 Thanks for posting up a Remembrance Day poster. Seeing 'Tommy Adkins' in a likeness of Flanders fields serves as a constant reminder of how we (Americans) also adopted the poppy as a tribute for our own veterans as well.


by John McCrae, May 1915

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Ms. Donegan - Algebra. Two things stand out in particular: (1) She always referred to us by the first three letters of our last name, so I was Mr. H-A-R. (2) Whenever she asked a student a question in class and there was any pause, she would say,"Mr./Ms. _-_-_, do you comprehend the situation?" 

Mr. Tabor Biology - from Day 1 he iterated, "Labor with Tabor, he'll be your good neighbor." He literally did have our class and others labor in the Lane garden during that first semester picking weeds, planting seeds, watering and removing debris.

Mr. Childs Economics - He would yawn literally every 5 minutes as he expressed genuises needed only four hours of sleep. The lenses of his glasses were so thick you could barely see his eyes. Yet he would get a little ticked when he would ask a question and the students in that direction would look at one another like, "To whom was he speaking?"

These are my top three. As others have stated, our teachers had their quirks, idiosyncrasies and mannerisms, some of which we remember so many years later. Yet they did have a deep commitment to teaching and did so with excellence. Go Lane go!

Greetings Class of 1975,

I was looking for one thing and found something else. I am so happy to say I found photos of our 30th Year Lane Reunion. I don't recall if I have a second set of photos. The search continues...

I will start tagging people one of these days.
