Things have not changed for me professionally since the last reunion (98?) as I am still pleased to be the Recycling Coordinator for the City of Glendale. Otherwise, I went through a divorce in 2001, finished raising my youngest daughter at home till she graduated and left for Humboldt State in 2003, remarried in 2003 to Bonnie, a high school teacher, and am now the stepfather to 16 year-old Glendale College student Amber and 11-year old Ian. I still run and hike and am planning lots of long-distance light-weight backpacks (PCT, AT). It will be nice to have a reunion in 2008. Take care.
