Sad news shared by Margie Little Seivert

 Class of 1962

 

Sad news about my husband Richard. He died peacefully last night (17 March 2020) at St. Joe’s hospital in Ann Arbor. Really from complications of leukemia . Scott and I were allowed in the hospital (it is closed for this awful virus going around) and were able to say our goodbyes even though he wasn’t aware. When the ventilator was removed he lasted 10 minutes so was ready to go .
Again because of the virus we don’t know yet about funeral arrangements but are leaning towards a memorial later when things calm down . I will let you know.
He will be missed greatly .

❤️ Margie

A DOCTOR ADVISES DOCTORS RE THE CORONAVIRUS:

"Date: February 26, 2020 at 2:35:50 PM EST

Subject: What I am doing for the upcoming COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic

Dear Colleagues,

          As some of you may recall, when I was a professor of pathology at the University of California San Diego, I was one of the first molecular virologists in the world to work on coronaviruses (the 1970s). I was the first to demonstrate the number of genes the virus contained. Since then, I have kept up with the coronavirus field and its multiple clinical transfers into the human population (e.g., SARS, MERS), from different animal sources.

          The current projections for its expansion in the US are only probable, due to continued insufficient worldwide data, but it is most likely to be widespread in the US by mid to late March and April. 

 Here is what I have done and the precautions that I take and will take. These are the same precautions I currently use during our influenza seasons, except for the mask and gloves.:

     1) NO HANDSHAKING! Use a fist bump, slight bow, elbow bump, etc.

     2) Use ONLY your knuckle to touch light switches. elevator buttons, etc.. Lift the gasoline      dispenser with a paper towel or use a disposable glove.

     3) Open doors with your closed fist or hip - do not grasp the handle with your hand, unless there is no other way to open the door. Especially important on bathroom and post office/commercial doors.

     4) Use disinfectant wipes at the stores when they are available, including wiping the handle and child seat in grocery carts.

     5) Wash your hands with soap for 10-20 seconds and/or use a greater than 60% alcohol-based hand sanitizer whenever you return home from ANY activity that involves locations where other people have been.

     6) Keep a bottle of sanitizer available at each of your home's entrances. AND in your car for use after getting gas or touching other contaminated objects when you can't immediately wash your hands.

     7) If possible, cough or sneeze into a disposable tissue and discard. Use your elbow only if you have to. The clothing on your elbow will contain infectious virus that can be passed on for up to a week or more!

What I have stocked in preparation for the pandemic spread to the US:

     1) Latex or nitrile latex disposable gloves for use when going shopping, using the gasoline pump, and all other outside activity when you come in contact with contaminated areas.

Note: This virus is spread in large droplets by coughing and sneezing. This means that the air will not infect you! BUT all the surfaces where these droplets land are infectious for about a week on average - everything that is associated with infected people will be contaminated and potentially infectious. The virus is on surfaces and you will not be infected unless your unprotected face is directly coughed or sneezed upon. This virus only has cell receptors for lung cells (it only infects your lungs) The only way for the virus to infect you is through your nose or mouth via your hands or an infected cough or sneeze onto or into your nose or mouth.

     2) Stock up now with disposable surgical masks and use them to prevent you from touching your nose and/or mouth (We touch our nose/mouth 90X/day without knowing it!). This is the only way this virus can infect you - it is lung-specific. The mask will not prevent the virus in a direct sneeze from getting into your nose or mouth - it is only to keep you from touching your nose or mouth.

     3) Stock up now with hand sanitizers and latex/nitrile gloves (get the appropriate sizes for your family). The hand sanitizers must be alcohol-based and greater than 60% alcohol to be effective.

     4) Stock up now with zinc lozenges. These lozenges have been proven to be effective in blocking coronavirus (and most other viruses) from multiplying in your throat and nasopharynx. Use as directed several times each day when you begin to feel ANY "cold-like" symptoms beginning. It is best to lie down and let the lozenge dissolve in the back of your throat and nasopharynx. Cold-Eeze lozenges is one brand available, but there are other brands available.

          I, as many others do, hope that this pandemic will be reasonably contained, BUT I personally do not think it will be. Humans have never seen this snake-associated virus before and have no internal defense against it. Tremendous worldwide efforts are being made to understand the molecular and clinical virology of this virus. Unbelievable molecular knowledge about the genomics, structure, and virulence of this virus has already been achieved. BUT, there will be NO drugs or vaccines available this year to protect us or limit the infection within us. Only symptomatic support is available.

          I hope these personal thoughts will be helpful during this potentially catastrophic pandemic. You are welcome to share this email. Good luck to all of us! Jim

Reminisce & Remember:  A Tribute to CHS
22 February 2020

             

   THE NEW LOOK FOR CLEARWATER HIGH SCHOOL

                  Saturday Feb. 22 was a great day at Clearwater High. The event was a welcome and final tour of the school before it is demolished to make way for brand new buildings. Weather was perfect - clear and a cool 70. Over 1000 graduates showed up and the auditorium was packed. We saw a slide show of the proposed buildings. 

The new CHS will make you proud. It will look like a college campus when completed. The band played and cheerleaders performed. Our faculty friend Bill Justice attended.  There were graduates as far back as 1955 there. Our own class of 1962 was well represented by 25 classmates.  Speeches by the Mayor and School Board members informed us of their roles in making this project a reality. Their successful Argument was that instead of yet another remodel -  a new. high tech. integrated campus is what our students and community needed and deserved.  

          The new construction will be completed in 30 months.

          We enjoyed a slide show  history in pictures of the first Clearwater High building of 1914 up through the  present day edifice which opened in 1954.  Finally,  to the Oohs and Ahhs of everyone in the auduence,  colorful architects' sketches gave us a glimpse of the beautiful future high school campus.

          We wanted you to feel part of this exciting transition in the life of our school.   We hope the above review helps you make that connection. 

          Plan to come celebrate with us at the future grand opening and at our 60th class reunion in 2022.

Go Tornadoes !

 
Best wishes from all your classmates!
 
 
 
 

GREAT NEWS FROM Catherine (Skinner) Powell

CHS CLASS of 1962

The book launch and signing is set for Feb 8. in Greenville, SC.

Would you like to send her your good wishes?

Recommendations:

"When you read Catherine’s book entitled “Make Your Home in My Love, keep a highlighter handy!  There is much to underline and ponder!  It’s for serious seekers and seasoned servants of God.  It covers The Classic Three Ways plus One, unitive/active.  It’s also a study of 6 early Christians- Augustine, Bernard, Catherine of Siena, Ignatius, John Calvin and Teresa of Avila. If you remember Cathy, you know this is a very intelligent, interesting and thoroughly researched book!  I highly recommend it!"                  -Shirley Bowes Johnson-
