On Sunday, January 25th, Vonda (Cross) Shingleton '68 of St.marys, WV wrote; " Since graduating in 1968, I became an RN. I am no longer working due to the needs of my husband Larry in coping with Parkinson's Disease. I am an amateur photographer. I do crafts - primitive sweatshirts/t-shirts, crochet,knit, etc. I have two grandsons - Bryson who is now a teenager @ 13, and Luke 8. We celebrated my parents 65th wedding anniversary in November;welcomed a new member to the family 11/25/14 - Lexi Rae Carpenter, my brother's first grandchild. "

On Thursday, January 22nd, Rita (Douglas) Douglas '60 of Vienna, VA wrote; " Leaving the big bright juicy NYC area to live now in Vienna VA closer to family and friends. A few minutes out of DC by metro. Politics are fun for me. Since graduating in 1960 and WVU later, I located in the NY Metro area where I owned a small business and then made a career in non-profits providing human services. I was in Buckhannon from 1996 to 2000 caring for my parents. I returned again to the NY metro area where I conduct public policy research and am an advocate for universal health care via a SINGLE-PAYER-SYSTEM/Medicare For All which would be better than OBAMACARE which is better than what was before, but not good enough yet. For those of you who care about getting profit and family ruination out of health care see PNHP.org (Physicians for a National Health Plan.) Yes, I remember that yearbook picture of me with my hair standing on end. I also remember that everyone moved away from me for days after because you thought I was radioactive. We are wiser now, aren't we?I am a participant in OCCUPY WALL STREET and have trained to investigate MediCare Fraud by providers. It's a volunteer project called SMP. Always looking to fix our world in whatever way we can. YES? In the Spring of 2013 we sold our home at 1 Elizabeth but are still in touch with Buckhannon friends and life. When I am in the area I stay in Elkins with my brother,JIM Douglas, but not in the hotel he bought. I do go to the 1863 restaurant because it's pretty good. My Dad always said:"Make something better." I say:"Don't give up on the Good." Note: January 2014 Medicare is a single-payer system because it is paid by our Medicare insurance we have paid for from our work. Understand that the VA health care system (largest in the USA)is in fact socialism as it works: VA owns the properties, employs the doctors and staffers,does and owns the research,has the 1st USA electronic system for patients and histories,and negotiates for drug prices and costs. Bush admin does not allow Medicare to negotiate but private insurance plans can and do.VA is an underfunded not-for-profit organization. Private insurance companies take too close to a trillion $ yearly for their advertising, profits,etc. Many businesses, doctors, Good Republicans and many Democrats are urging Obamacare as a doorway to Improved Medicare for All which is the only plan that allows for health care costs to be controlled while having healthcare for all. Keep trying:keep hoping for all. "

On Wednesday, January 21st, Eric Bradshaw '90 of Valdosta, GA wrote; " After graduating from BUHS, I went to WVU for 1 year and then transferred to the University of Alabama (Roll Tide!). After completing 2 degrees, I took a high school teaching job band in Carrollton, GA and taught adjunct at the University of West GA. Since 2002, I have served as the Director of Athletic Bands and prof. of tuba and euphonium (baritone) at Valdosta State University. I have twin sons (Drew and Ryan) that are currently seniors in high school and are active with wrestling, track, percussion, and academics in general! They are ranked 2nd and 3rd in the senior class at their HS and both plan to attend Georgia Tech starting next Fall - crazy! When I have a little free time, I still enjoy golfing, riding my motorcycle, traveling, and drinking craft beer. "

On Tuesday, January 20th, Ann (McKisic) Ciampa '67 of Dover, DE wrote; " I am "retired" (but working hourly) for the Capital School District in Dover, Delaware. My husband Tom and I have been married for 45 years and have two wonderful children - Angela is 37 and Matt is 35. We have three grandchildren, Johnny, Nick,and Anna who are the love of our lives. "
