Carolyn Reed Kirkpatrick wrote from Queenstown, N.Z., where she and her husband and two sons live on a sheep station. She is involved with several education projects and both boys are on the local ski team. * Matt Ovios was promoted to captain and was deployed to the western Pacific and Arabian Gulf onboard the aircraft carrier John C. Stennis. He was in the midst of launching jets that support missions in Iraq and Afghanistan. Upon return he and his wife will head to Newport, R.I., where Matt will be the director of fleet training at the Navy’s Surface Warfare Officer School. Matt, we wish you a safe return and are humbled by your service to our country. * Carol Lockwood expanded her commercial real estate law practice to include family law. She lives in East Oahu with her two sons. She’s also the stereotypical mom, shuttling boys among school, swim lessons, soccer and, of course, birthday parties. * Reed Bernhard retired from the Navy after 20 years of flying. He has settled in Seattle with his wife and son and looks forward to continuing his flying career. Congratulations on your retirement Reed and, as with Matt, we’re humbled by your service. * David Coleman and family live in Silicon Valley, where he’s the manager of the merchant support team for Playspan. His wife home-schools their two children. They spend weekends in the Napa area riding horses or attending their daughter’s ballet rehearsals. * Annie Band loves life in Wyoming, making time for mountain biking (with her husband and son), hiking, paragliding, swimming, and making lots of jewelry in her newly upgraded studio. She went hiking with Diana Howell O’Brien, who has a thriving physical therapy practice in Jackson. * Dan Spurgin has been in Kansas dominating his family fantasy football league and starting a soccer team last fall for 2-4 year olds, which they call “Mighty Lions Soccer.” * Elaine Kaufman Goldman lives in St. Louis with her husband and three daughters. Her company, Logo Loops, produces embroidered stretch headbands in a variety of colors/designs—think tween girl. Elaine reports that Erica Hoffmeister Supple, Suzanne Quill Feldman, Andrea Ciampa McEachern, Leslie Couture Mourmoura, Kirsten Rossner Buchanan, Valerie Bryer Pettit, and Dr. Gretchen Schwarze Mezrich are all well. * Kristin “Cricket” Girvin Redman checked in from Madison, Wis., where she lives with her husband and dog. She is practicing graphic design, playing some pond hockey, running, and skiing. She sees Laura Senier, who is on the faculty at UW Madison in rural sociology and family medicine. She also gets together with Gretchen Granger Hartley, who is a vascular surgeon and on the faculty at UW Medical School. She also sees Tim Felt ’91, although not often enough. Y Tanja Gross Chevalier checked in from the Chicago area, where she lives with her husband and three kids. They’re enthusiastically involved with music and French culture and enjoy the changing seasons in the Midwest. * John Hayworth became the managing partner of Walker, Tipps & Malone PLC, a litigation boutique firm in Nashville. He and his wife are busy raising two kids, one very mellow lab, and one crazy-ass corgi. He hopes to visit Chip Smith, Scott Schirmeier, and Bob Lian in DC soon. * Congratulations to Pete Sekulow and his wife on the birth of their daughter, Veronica Mia Sekulow, born Sept. 8 in Virginia. * After 20 years working in sports, mostly as a baseball writer, Larry Rocca is in the DC suburbs working as development director at his high school alma mater (some may remember his Georgetown Prep letter jacket). * Cinda Jones is president of her family’s Timberland and Real Estate Co. in Massachusetts. She’s redeveloping a former sawmill site into a village center just a half mile north of UMass Amherst.
