Memorial Index Created By KHS Students
KHS students in the school's Web Page Design class
recently completed an online index for |

The students, under the direction of KHS teacher Randy
Reynolds, entered the names of more
than three thousand Adair County veterans
into a data base that arranges the names alphabetically.

Yeah, every body has aged
except me ! ! !
While waiting for my first appointment in the reception room of a new
dentist, I noticed his certificate, which bore his full name. Suddenly, I
remembered that a tall, handsome boy with the same name had been in my high
school class some 50 years ago. Upon seeing him, however, I quickly
discarded any such thought. This balding, gray-haired man with the deeply lined
face was too old to have been my classmate. After he had examined my
teeth, I asked him if he had attended the local high school.
"Yes," he replied. "When did you graduate?" I asked. He answered, "In
1953. "Why, you were in my class!" I exclaimed. He looked at me
closely and then asked, "What did you teach?"
