Brian and Marilyn Lebowitz Rothberg completed their 44-year quest to see all 60 National Parks when, celebrating his retirement, they visited Pinnacles National Park in California, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park (“the part not covered with fresh lava”), and American Samoa. They also visited Mick Chapuk in Bethlehem, Pa., along with Christine Bogosian Rattey and Martin “Doc” Zeller. Mick had an art exhibition at Northampton Community College, where he’s been teaching for the past decade. Meanwhile, Norman Rattey was at Sivananda Vedanta Center, Maluenda, Spain, for a month-long retreat. * Tom Sullivan (another visitor to Mick’s art exhibits) wrote of a hiking trip in New Zealand’s Southern Alps. “After 35 years in medicine, the last 18 dedicated to hospice and palliative care, I decided it was time to let the younger folks lead the way.” Trying his hand at landscaping, interior renovations, banjo, and furniture building, he and wife Sue also love visiting their grandchildren in New York City and Ireland. * Robin Hamill-Ruth spent two weeks in Syracuse painting and dying art fabric for quilts destined for several shows. An African safari in September was another interruption to her weekly grandbaby-sitting gig. * Don Toussaint recently retired as executive VP of Citizens Business Bank in California. He spent 42 years in commercial and corporate banking, mostly in California and Connecticut. He and his wife, Libby (retired from Westmont College, Calif.), have traveled in the Canadian Rockies, Maine, and New Hampshire. * Dennis Delehanty and wife Elizabeth sold their Centreville, Va., home and moved last June to Laureate Park in a new city called Lake Nona, near Orlando. “Florida is often referred to as ‘God’s waiting room,’ but Lake Nona is mainly younger families with a smattering of older folks … plus a good racial/ethnic mix.” He extolled recreational and medical facilities there and urged us all to Google it. When he lived in the Washington, D.C., area he frequently saw Norm Olsen ’73, since they both worked at the Department of State. * Havard Jones took the Amtrak sleeper car from Nevada to Union Station in Washington, D.C., “Scratching an item off my bucket list.” It was the return part of a spectacular trip to see the Grand Canyon and then the total eclipse of the sun in the Sawtooth Mountains of Idaho. He was joined by Irl “Bucky” Marshall ’76, Walter Lienhard ’75, and John Allan ’75 for various parts of the trip. * Larry Kominz is teaching Japanese language and literature at Portland State University, and directing student productions of kabuki melodrama and kyogen farce, with occasional performances in Missouri, Canada, and Japan. Larry and his wife, Toshimi, spent the winter holiday with their two children, who live and work in Tokyo. “As a ‘left coaster’ I rarely come east these days. Last year I set foot in Maine for the first time since graduation day! I got as far as Kittery. Wishing my fellow alumni a healthy, happy Year of the Wild Boar.” * Diana Waterous Centorino, still a practicing attorney with her own firm in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., loves the beach and watching cruise ships sail from Port Everglades. One son is a psychiatrist for the VA in Tampa, the other an attorney for the State of Louisiana. Diana’s daughter works in her law office. Diana’s husband recently retired as ethics commissioner for Miami-Dade County and is now in consulting work. They enjoyed a holiday family gathering in New Orleans and still spend time each summer at their house in New Hampshire. * John Robbins started his 40th year as a consulting forester in Massachusetts. “Climate change has made my work a real challenge these days, with weather extremes and new insect and disease problems that are seriously stressing our forests.” A highlight of his year was the wedding, in Harpswell, of his daughter, Ginny ’10, whose roommate traveled from Fairbanks, Alaska, to perform the ceremony.
