Second row, third from left is Steve Carpenter, class of '69.  I was proud of myself for knowing many of the others, but they have already been identified.  Good job!  And, what a fun photo!

I don't see Don Bailey at all. I agree the one just in front of the coach is Danny Long.   I dated both Danny and Don. I haven't seen Danny since graduation   I remember his high forehead. I saw Don in the late 89's but not since then.  Don still looked pretty much the same.  I didn't see anyone that looked to me like Don.  What was this picture from?

Don Bailey in answer to your question to me HOW TO POST PHOTOS, after log in select messge forum from left column, select post response button top of white space, a "word" type heading icon strip will appear with space to input your typed words, etc.  Select the PHOTO icon top row 2nd left (looks like hills & sun) then paste your photo.  when complete SUBMIT and bingo it's on the forum page.

a few left to be identified >>  back row Coach Mann's immediately right ???, and back row 2 guys to right of Jim Oles are  ???, ???

also Don Bailey (messge #5) identified 2nd from Coach Mann as Dave Critzer but Gary Kipple (message #11)identified him as Bill Falzone (yearbook images) family name speeling is Massey

this has been fun

Thank you Theresa for the info on how to post a picture.

Also I thought the picture was Dave Critzer because he was a very good ballplayer as was Tim Chaney and I am surprise neither one of them where on the team.

A special message to our members.  There is a disclaimer on this site for “Missing Classmates”.  The names listed are there because of a non-working email address - that is probably true for many.  Don’t be fooled by the over 400 names listed- they’re not all “missing”.  For reunion planning purposes, it’s not cost effective to make personal phone calls or produce mass mailings.  We’re in the age of instant electronic contact.  So what better way to reach our classmates then through our own alumni site?

I’m sure many received the initial announcement about this site in early 2013.  But, for whatever reason have chosen not to join.  Possibly they forgot, they don’t use email or have changed their email address, think they’ll receive reunion info via other social-media sites (face book, or, thought if their spouse had joined they wouldn’t need to, have passed away or just aren’t interested.

Here’s a few more thoughts on that list of alums who are listed.

John Gonge was listed as deceased on Sept 2010

Steve Hutcheson has been assumed deceased for over 25 years

Jerry Jones is listed as deceased on passing away 3/20/1994

Linda Roy passed away 10/01/2010

Jens Rygh, committee member, doesn’t use email or social media

Dennis Seaman, committee member, doesn’t use email or social media

Nancy Sharp is married to Rob Yesheck

Nancy Sladen is married to Pete Peterson

Open the “Missing Classmates” list - Who Can You Personally Contact by phone, text or social-media to join  If you recognize a name and have their email address, click on that name and send a pre-formatted email invite from this site.  Couldn’t be easier.

Do you recognize anyone who’s passed away, then select the Notify Me link and send a message to the site.

I’ll reach out via Face Book to:  Tim Chaney, Pat Fry, Daniel Herbst, Edmund Hubard, Terry Hurley, Robert Kobilis, Bill Liddicoet, Stephen Packett, Francis Ryan, Sylvania Santa Ana, and Donald Smith.

Working together we can whittle this “missing” list down to a reasonable 20% of our class.

"Theresa LaValley Levy

It's MARK KELLY front row left, DON JONES front row right

our 68 yearbook is at - Thanks Irene Sheridan for doing that"


You're quite welcome, Theresa...that was my pleasure, indeed.

Pretty sure it's Dave Critzer.

Alice (Lisa) Ruby (Marshall)

I agree with Barbara that it's David Critzer, and second from left on front row is Rim Gardner, class of '69.

When was this picture taken? I only went to Crossland my Senior Year. The guys I knew look younger than I remember. Anyone know the whereabouts of Bill Flynn? I haven't seen or heard anything about him since the mid 70's. Was also wondering about Rusty Olmert but saw him pop up on this forum.

That is a great picture!  I haven't seen a picture of Mark Holmes....ever!  He and Mike Teubner were my best friends in junior high... Taney Jr. High.  And hello to Rusty whom I also haven't seen forever!  I was just talking to my daughter about you yesterday...that you were the "cool" one...drummers always were.  Lord, I miss those days.  I guess we all do to some degree.  Thank you, Theresa and all who have worked so hard in creating and maintaining this website.  As to the time of the must have been in junior high, maybe our 9th grade year.  Is it the baseball team, I wonder?  Mr. Mann was the coach and phys ed teacher at Taney, yes?  Anyway...I miss you all.  Lived in California for 30 years and got back to maybe one reunion...missing this year again.  Daughter, Hanna, in high school up here in upstate NY.  I tell her stories about high school and the Wakes....Teubner, Jens, Kenuto, Rusty, and Ron...our self produced band party at "Hertzler's Armpit"  as Teubner lovingly referred to the half-barracks in my back yard....(his father,General Teubner, took the other half or that could be an errant memory only of mine) ....anyway...memories are mysterious and wonderful things.  Best wishes to all and I hope to see you again sooner than later.  jgh

Funny...I can't remember why I sent this picture of myself in 1990 in a show in LA...I am in the pith helmet.  Its from "Breaker Morant" and the other fella is Steffen Foster from South Africa...among my best lifetime friends.  But why I ever brought it to this forum is a mystery....Not sure how to change it!  Doesn't matter really.  jgh

I'd posted something snarly here yesterday, which I've just deleted. I was wondering why I would have been so negative in the first place - then, waking up this morning, I remembered. Mr. Richel - think that was the spelling - home room and English in the seventh grade at Taney. He was a monster. Does any remember him? That he selected, by his own mysterious criteria at the beginning of the school year, the "row leaders" who would be his favorites for the rest of the year; that he took the row leaders boating, filmed the day, then showed the movie to the rest of us; that he wondered, aloud why the rest of us couldn't rise to their example? I remember that we all endured his abuses in silence, but that it was a row leader who finally snapped - I wish I could remember her name - told her parents, and started the reaction that would ultimately rein him in. My only year at Taney, as my Dad was transferred to War College in Alabama the next year. My relief at moving to Alabama was short-lived (1963, for God's sake).

Thank you to our Reunion Committee who has already planned our 50th reunion! You all are awesome!

One suggestion - could you post the info here? There are several sites that have been used over the years but this one seems to be the one you all have settled on. It works well and I never get junk email from this site.

Thanks again!

Mr. Mann works part time at ledo'pizza in Charlotte Hall I am sure he would like to see anyone of you. Don't know his hours but sure you could ask. The reuion committie maybe would like to ask him to the reuion.

Thomas Tankersley

I get to see Mr. Mann occasionally, when my wife and I visit Hughesville where my parents live.  He told me he is at Ledo's by McKays usually on Fridays helping his daughter, who owns the restaurant.  I know, he would be happy to see you, if you have a chance to stop.  My Dad is 89 and use to coach many of Crossland football players on the Morningside/Camp Springs Boys Club.  He would, also, be happy to see you guys when your in town.

I am so sadden to hear about Theresa's accident, especially when it was caused by a scatter or throw rug. This is a lesson for us all. I was on a TV interview once explaining that you should THROW away throw rugs before someone is injured. Now, everyone, go through your home and remove all tripping hazards and proactively make your home more accessible, comfortable and safe, for everyone, regardless of current or future needs. Let's leave a legacy of a safer home.

Theresa LaValley (Levy)

first off a BIG thank you to Gail Watson for her recent post updating our class concerning "The Fall" (see Danny Fitzpatrick message).  Needless to say Eric Listou is correct THROW AWAY THE THROW RUGS!!! The damn things came up and tripped me July 25 causing a triple fracture of right ankle-literally moved tibia 2 inches from where it should be.  What a bitch!!! Here I was loving life, loving my crafts, working out and having a good time in Melbourne FL.  But NO reality check - girl your 67 get real! 

sutures out August 20 and hopefully get walking boot to RE-start my retirement life.  So at this point attending our BIG reunion weekend could be very doubtful. However, I had planned to visit my Mom (96), at our family home in Apple Grove off Bock Rd, just a few days after the fall but naturally that didn't happen and then was to fly up for my 68th birthday at Moms the weekend of our reunion.  So MAYBE just maybe I'll fly up to visit Mommy (as previously planned) borrow the family car and make it over for the Friday night gathering at the Harbor (unless someone wants to roadtrip!).  Share some memories, laugh till I cry but walk causiously and no boogie down dancing!

I guess it's true what they say on facebook about an algorithum that limits friends views and postings.  I had an extensive posting of my accident there but Gail was proactive in posting it here as well.  I wish all my fellow alums happiness through our aging years to stay calm, accept our limitations and just love every moment.  We're still here and fondly remember those we've loved who aren't here to enjoy these moments.  I might be limping but my guardian angel will be with me as well as the energizing bunny.

Thank you all for your kind words of encouragement for we share a lot in common\

Love, Theresa

Hi Theresa,
It is the worst thing if your not able to attend the reunion! I was so looking forward to seeing you there. I did read your post, so it seems that there still might be a chance for me to see you. That would be great!
I do hope that you're making a very speedy recovery, though it will certainly take time to fully heal. I just hope the process goes as smoothly as possible for you. Truly! I'm impressed that your mom still lives on Blanford Drive. Actually, that's amazing! My folks bailed in 1972.
I hope I get to see you! Get well/heal fast!

Irene Sheridan

Hey, Theresa! This is the first I heard about your unfortunate fall. We're friends on FB but FB hasn't notified me of any posts you've made in a long, long time. It sounds like you're recovering well and I hope you'll be as good as new ASAP. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you'll make it to the reunion...crossing my toes, too...and my eyes  cheeky heart

Theresa LaValley (Levy)

Well this is a real drag - I won't be attending our reunion, not even happy hour.   My next appointment with surgeons assistant is Sept. 26th and at that time I'm hoping to hear I can START to put weight on my right foot.  This triple fracture of my ankle has set me back tremendously.  I've got a feeling it won't be until late October that I could even think of getting on a plane to travel home to Mom's house in Apple Grove, Oxon Hill MD.

It would be great to facetime with ANY of you during the reunion weekend.  My cell is 321-318-9442.  It's 91 degrees here today in Melbourne FL but I'll try to stay fully clothed over reunion weekend awaitig your call ! ! !

When I do arrive home I will be spending a good 2-3 weeks at Mom's.  My sister, Patty, passed away September 3 2018 and I will assist the family in multiple capacities while at the family home.

As for FaceBook Irene, an algorithm is screwing with the works, thus you don't see all my posts and other individuals posts.  If interested just search my name-pull up my home page-and scroll through whats been occurring with me.
