Expats on the air
Mark Stenzler (class of 1978) has had a weekly show on Swiss radio for over a decade now. But you don't have to go to Europe to catch "Blues Zeppelin". You can listen to it streaming on the net here: http://www.rabe.ch/sendungen/musik/blues-zeppelin.html

Attention all SHPies

Michelle Eisenkraft (me2357@columbia.edu) writes:
I am writing from the Science Honors Program at Columbia University. The Science Honors Program is an extracurricular Saturday morning program for high school students who have demonstrated exceptional talent in the fields of math and science. The program has been in existence since 1958, and enrolls high school students residing in the tri-state area. We are currently attempting to contact alumni from our program in order to learn about what they have accomplished in their current fields. Not surprisingly, a large number of our students attend or have attended the Great Neck public Schools. We would appreciate any assistance you can offer in providing current addresses/contact information for our list of alumni. We look forward to your reply. Thank you for your help, Michelle Eisenkraft

An anonymous graduate writes
I am a 1960 GNS grad. Went to NYU and Parsons School of Design. After heading a successful Ad Agency in Washington,D.C., I have been writing for 10 years. (3 published books). My latest book (published anon) includes those heady days at GNS. Remember how we were allowed to smoke in the cafeteria?!!! My book is not only about GNS, but about my life as it played out, about how I was a victim of an atrocious crime, and being a witness for the prosecution...and how we lost. You can buy it from LuLu.com: Title: GETTING OFF By Z. If you recognize me in the photos, don't tell anyone!

Sad news...
It is with great sadness I have to inform you of the passing of Roger Minionis on February 10th, 2005. Over the years, "Mr. Min" was an inspiration to a huge number of students. There are not many teachers I can distinctly remember from 25 years ago - Roger will always be one of those. You can read the full obituary in The Great Neck Record.

Happy Ending: Spam about the Phillies you may have received
About 2 years ago some of you recieved one or more rants about sports in Philadelphia. It turns out they were from an individual who harvested email addresses from this site and hundreds of others. Eventually, he was caught indicted (read it here) and prosecuted. Our webmaster was one of the witnesses called by the US Attorney in the trial. What goes around, comes around....
