Miamians were saddened to learn of the demise of Julie Smith Clarke and Henry “Sanky” Newbold, both well-known throughout Miami.  I will miss both of them fondly. They were loved by many and will be missed by all.

Get well wishes to all of our sick and shut ins. May all of you soon return to good health!

Booker T. Washington class of 1960 invites “all” Tornados and Northwestern Bulls too) to join them in a fun-filled day on October 19th as they journey to “Key West”. The bus will leave at 5:30 a.m. from Golden Glades north parking lot. The trip is a fundraising project to provide scholarships to deserving graduating seniors from BTW. By the way do hope you saw the football game last Saturday night, August 24th when Booker T. made its presence felt in Norcross, Georgia” when they took care of bu-s-in-e-s-s and beat Norcross High 55-0 on its home field.

A very happy, happy birthday to Franklin Clark, beloved Mother Mrs. Fannett Clark Lyons who thanks God for 99 years of life. She hopes to see 100 on September 14th. She believes her faith in God is the reason she has lived a long life.

Many members of the Miami Dolphins 1972 perfect season team celebrated their famous win more than 40 years ago with a belated perfect season visit to celebrate with President Barack Obama. I am sure they enjoyed their visit to one of our most famous homes in America.

School is now open; do hope everyone had a fabulous summer! Teachers and students are well rested and are all ready for doing your best as teachers and students paying attention to your teacher and learning! Learning! Learning! To do well and go on to college or work in this “world”you are going to have to speak correctly, dress properly, “act gently” and “be kind and mannerly” with other and know how to treat others with kindness, fighting, bad language, and not going to work on time will get you dismissed from your job and you being to walk to the streets and do other “things” to get money. Please, boys and girls remain in school and graduate. Make yourself proud! Make your mother and father P-R-O-U-D!
