  CC - 4-14-06   It's great to come onto the Chad website and revisit. Thank you for the time and effort it takes to keep it current. I'm sooooooooo glad that you're putting the yearbooks on the site. Since I don't have mine anymore, it'll be fun looking at them again.

9-2-06  In '58 I was in 7th grade. We left Chad in April of '61 at the end of my 9th grade.

  Excerpt from another website:  I am married and have three children and five grandchildren. I've lived in the Pacific Northwest (Salem, Oregon) since 1975 and wouldn't want to live any place else.  My husband and I are active in our Church.

BARRIX, Linda  1965    See Chad Marriages  
@ Chas: August-63 to February-65

10/21/2002:  My husband James Thompson and I both went to school [at Chad].   Jim graduated from there in  1964.  My dad was transferred to Colorado Springs, so I graduated from there in 1965. We would love to hear from former classmates.

Searching for:  Chateauroux American High School Students:  Steve DeCamp, John Melvin, [found & connected] Ken Mayberry, Anyone that remembers us.

 Jim and Linda Thompson, the last 35 years:

     After graduating, Jim joined the Air Force in 1965, and ended up in the Philippines, with a short stint in Vietnam.   My dad was transferred to Colorado Springs, so we left Chateauroux in Feb of 1965. I ended up graduating from Roy J. Wasson High School in Colorado Springs. Our old friend, Charlene Moore, got us back together after Jim was transferred to Georgia in 1968.
    Jim and I married in 1968. We were married for over 8 years in which time we lived in Macon, Georgia; Biloxi, Mississippi and Ipswich, England. Jim was in Libya and Turkey also. We left England in 1972 and went to Mather AFB, in Sacramento, CA. We divorced in 1976.
    In 1996, we remarried and have been living in California ever since. We have a daughter, Kathy (husband Ken, and two wonderful granddaughters, Mary 9, and Melanie 7). They also manage apartments and Ken works for an underground cable company. Our son, Jimmy, is still single and just got out of the Air Force. He is in Air Traffic Control.
    We manage an apartment building in Riverside, CA with 120 units. I run the office while Jim takes care of the rehabs. We have been doing this kind of work for nearly 7 years now. Jim has been in construction for over 25 years, and I have worked in every facet of management and some retail for over 25 years.
    We bowl twice a week, and sometimes 3 times a week on Vegas leagues (which means we go to Vegas for the sweepers events). We enjoy that a lot, and other than that we enjoy visiting with our kids, grandkids, playing cards; still play pinochle when we can find partners.

BATCH, Irene (The lovely & talented) (Susan's sister) - 1963  
@ Chas: 1960- 1962

10-07  Irene and her sister, Susan, returned to Chateauroux with our group in 2007.

Geez.. such a pest is Miss J making me sign the guest book. The reunion in Chateauroux was a 5 star production from start to finish. Valerie, Mike, Annette et tous les folks involved did a fantastic job. There was never a dull moment. We should plan a reunion someplace in the middle of the country - say St. Louis - for next fall. I went up to see Wendy Miller on 8/11 & we laughed for hours as we went through the yearbooks. We also may have had a glass or two to toast Chateauroux.....

6-20-03  What a great time we had at the reunion in Tahoe. Weather was great, events ran smoothly and all were very hospitable. Not a single person has aged a day. Amazing.

BIHLMEYER, Earl - 1959
@ Chas: 19

2-4-00  I attended Chad High in '56-'57 and '57-'58 as a Sophomore and Junior. I rotated back to the States the summer of '58 and graduated from high school in Kansas City in 1959. That would have made me Chad Class of '59.

Got a BS in business administration in 1965; an MS in Community Planning, Comprehensive Health Planning and Health Services Administration in 1971 and received my PhD in Public Administration(with collateral fields of State and Local Government and Research Theory and Methodology this past January after having completed everything but my dissertation in 1983 and having to go back to work or starve. All of this means I can occasionally carry on a brief conversation with some of my grandchildren - brief because they get bored.

I have spent a lot of years in administration of academic medicine. I work at Tulane University Medical Center where I am Senior Associate Vice Chancellor. I do whatever no one else wants to do, and am even teaching a course in Public Health via the internet this semester.

My wife, Ramona, of 36 years, is a retired surgical nurse and works 3 days a week at the child care center that we run at Tulane - taking care of the little babies - her true love in life. She and I have 7 children; 3 boys and 4 girls, and 10 assorted grandchildren.

I guess that is some of the current stuff. I will be glad to provide more if anyone is interested. Oh yes, I am an old 58, soon to be 59, but I still remember some great times back in my high school days in Chatereaux (the dorm, of course).

I have numerous hobbies and pursuits, the principal of which, currently, is to survive long enough to retire -possibly 5 years from now.
