School Story:

1) Sophomore year (spring 1964) Mr. Dotson promised me a steak dinner if I broke 5 minutes in the mile. I did but it took three years before I could collect.
2) I was exactly a year younger than another classmate, Christine Reiff, because I skipped a year of elementary school.
3) During my junior and senior years, the cross-country team went to the State meet. Principal Scheuerman got us tickets to the Ohio State football games and we sat right behind the Ohio State bench or at ground level in the end zone near the band.
