Mike Fleetwood, class of 1969 brushing shoulders with the
King of the Circuit, Richard Petty at Petty Enterprises in Randleman, NC. Mike
said that he spent two days with Richard Petty and has to admit that he's one of
the nicest guys that he's ever had the pleasure to meet and do business with.
"This was a great trip and I'll never forget the time that I spent with the
'King' of NASCAR. I'm already looking forward to my next visit to Petty
Sam Shortes '53 is shown here in the Oval Office with
President Reagan during his last year in office. Sam is presenting the
President with an engraved and gold inlaid Bowie knife and Colt-Walker pistol
(in Presidents left hand). These items are presently on display in
Reagan's Presidential Library. The same knife is on display in the Alamo
museum and another one was owned by Actor John Wayne. The theme of the
engraving was the "Alamo." The engravings on both sides of the Bowie Knife are
of final assault. Reagan had some dozen pieces ---mostly Colts and
Winchesters -- starting back when he was Governor of California. Sam has
also engraved some things for George H. Bush before he became president.
Shown here are Louise Tate Hefner '50 with a smiling and ever
effervescent Betty White. The picture with Betty White is said to be
the occasion of Louise's Octogenarian celebration. Looking at the
picture, that's kinda hard to believe.

Food For Thought...While
Looking Thru The Annual
from Robert McKibben '56
Makes me sad. So many gone. Yet, so many did good, beyond any
concept that I may of had. Lawyers, FBI agents, US Marshals, Soldiers,
Preachers, Educators, Homemakers, Entrepreneurs, Doctors, Nurses, Ranchers,
Actors, Architects, Engineers, Scientists, Bankers, Cowboys, Cowgirls, Builders.
Aggies, tea sippers, Frogs, Red Raiders, Fightin' Irish, Sooners, Rams, Huskers,
Eagles, Bears, Cougars, UTA Rebels, and many other colleges plus the Military.
Yep, Carter Riverside should be Proud of the wonderful
students that graced it's Halls since 1937 or 38 when it was allowed to
"educate" the kids from "Riverside". I am Thankful that I was allowed the
opportunity to attend the best high school in Fort Worth.
Dang! It was a wonderful experience growin' up in Riverside.
