Elizabeth Maiden Newell was signed up to be a panelist at a forum dedicated to the 50th anniversary of Skidmore’s government department, one of several commemorative events planned for Skidmore’s reunion weekend.
New Jersey newspaper editor Nancy Baroff Dinar drew upon her government major when she recently published a background piece on various forms of local government in the state. “It isn’t an exposé in the New York Times; but at least I get to use some of what I learned in college!”
Suzanne Chait-Magen and husband Larry have been enjoying Palm Beach, FL, the Magnolia Plantation in Charleston, SC, and Savannah, GA. She admits the region’s friendly people and easy living style have impressed “these hardened New Yorkers.” Suzanne joined a book club that is reading The Kite Runner.
Molly Meyer, still working at Yale, sent news from several classmates. Linda Rhodes Adams had just begun her 16th year of teaching when a bicycle accident last September sent her to the hospital and rehabilitation for a month. She is not sure when or if she will return to school. We wish her a steady recovery.
Ginny Murrell Morand and husband Lee are enjoying life in South Carolina, trips to spend time with children and grandchildren, and celebrations of weddings and births. One family wedding in Charleston was perfectly timed for viewing azaleas, dogwoods, and flowering quinces.
Gretchen Bellinger has created another new fabric: “Cashmere” is a brushed twill and part of the “legendary textile showcase” accessible online at www.gretchenbellinger.com.
Janice Brophy Billingsley, a medical reporter for the Web site and wire service HealthDay.com, co-authored Straighter, Stronger, Leaner, Longer (see Books in this issue of Scope).
Janice stays in touch with Carol Schreder, one of eight participants selected by the American Film Institute’s directing workshop for women to direct a short film. The program is intended to increase the number of female directors in Hollywood. Carol’s film Laying Down Arms was completed this spring.
Cindy Kingsbury Wollaeger and husband Tim became grandparents twice, and their business is thriving. They enjoy living in La Jolla, CA, spending summers in New Hampshire, and skiing in Colorado. Last June Tim had two stents placed in his heart; Cindy exhorts all to “watch your health and fight your genetics as hard as you can.”
Our sympathies to Judy Whipple Oehler, whose father died last June. Judy and her seventh Seeing Eye dog, a yellow lab named Carl, moved back to Minnesota’s Twin Cities in late 2004, giving her time with her father before he died. Judy has moved into a complex for persons 55 and older and has enjoyed making many friends there.
Martha MacDonald Price and her husband are finally resettled into their home after a major renovation and addition. Martha has returned as a full-time faculty member in the early-childhood department at SUNY-Cobleskill, where she is helping implement a new BS degree in child care and development. In addition to spending time with their children and grandchildren, John and Martha make daily visits to John’s 93-year-old mother, who lives in a nearby nursing home.
