Class of 2000! I hope everyone is doing well. Here’s the latest. * Patrick Sullivan is in the field in the Brooks Range, where he’ll be away from phone and email until June 13. * Mike and Hilary Smyth Wirtz moved to Tarrytown, N.Y., this summer with their two children, Charlie, 5, and Frances, 3. They live on campus at Hackley School, where Mike is headmaster. They would love to connect with any Colby grads in the area! * Jeff Daniels is leaving Australia for six months to visit family and friends in New York, promote his latest documentary feature, Mother With A Gun, about American terrorist group The Jewish Defense League, and to develop his next film. Hoping to reconnect with any Colby alums in the area. * Ben Ritz ended up graduating not only sums, but also second in his class. He recently took a briefing attorney position with the First Court of Appeals in Houston, Texas, which is a state appellate court. His wife, Hilary, just finished the latest draft of her third book. It’s about a middle-aged mom who finds out she has 45 days left to live and decides to go Robin Hood to right the wrongs of her dystopian society. It’s being critiqued now and should come out as an ebook in a few months. * Limi Perry Bauer is going back to get her master’s starting this fall at Oxford University. Primarily distance learning through their department of education, she’ll be working on an M.Sc. degree for teaching English language in university settings.
