We bounced back nicely after a sparse update last issue. Nice to hear from some of you for the first time after 16-plus years of life after Colby. Please keep sending updates—particularly those of you who haven’t submitted in a few years. We really do enjoy reading about how everyone is doing. * Matt Medwick lives in Israel with wife Keren and their four kids, Nadav, Ma’ayan, Yoav, and Itamar. Matt is a surgeon and director of the hematology and oncology pain department at Tel HaShomer Medical Center. He also teaches at Tel Aviv University Medical School. * Darrell Sofield and wife Ruth returned to Bellingham, Wash., from a sabbatical in Switzerland. “We lived without a car, did some fun research, and explored the country by biking, skiing, running, and taking the trains.” * Peter Duback and his family settled back into the Midwest after 11 years in D.C. and NYC. Peter is director of product strategy at Robert W. Baird. His family is focused on work and raising their twins, Natalie and Grace, 5, and Lucy, 3. “I’m proud to report that all three are up on skis, have graduated from the bunny hill to the chairlift, and are loving it!” * Anne McManus Hurlbut reports that husband Matt ’96 conquered cancer last year and this spring brings much brighter days! They are expecting their fourth child in late June. “Natalie, Lila, and big brother William are so excited to welcome a new baby boy.” * Lane Schuck Zawacki reports she had twin boys in November, Eli Noah and Hugo Caleb. Big sister Amelia, 7, and brother Leo, 4, are competing for who can make Eli and Hugo smile more. “I left my job as a nurse case manager in the ER of a Baltimore city hospital, but I think that may have been easier!” * James Collligan attended the NFL AFC championship game with Chris Fossella and Matt Morrissey. “And the Patriots triumphed over Eric Decosta ’93’s Baltimore Ravens (Eric is the director of player personnel). It was a most ripping victory!” * Marc Herbst lives in Leipzig, Germany, with wife Christina and a 6-year-old son. Marc teaches and lectures at museums and universities through the Journal of Aesthetics & Protest, an art/cultural/activist project he cofounded in Los Angeles in 2003. He’s worked in Milan and Copenhagen and is on his way to London and Norway, where he’s excited to see northern lights again. * Matt Tangney and wife Libby purchased a ski house in Jackson, N.H., and invited Bill Bradley, Matt O’Connell ’96, and Jason Hallee for the weekend. Jason reports he, Bill, Matt, and Dean Snell ’96 won the Colby alumni golf tourney at Reunion Weekend 2011; the reigning champs invite any and all challengers at our next reunion in June. * Michelle Grdina, Kathy Christy Schultz, and Sandra Jewers Dow spent MLK weekend together in the Berkshires. They enjoyed hiking, wine tasting, catching up, and reliving a lot of great Colby memories. * Keith Stockmann earned his Ph.D. in forestry and economics from University of Montana in 2006 and published a number of articles in forestry-related journals. His most recent, “Estimates of carbon stored in harvested wood products from the United States Forest Service northern region, 1906-2010,” appears in Carbon Balance and Management. He lives in Montana with wife Karen and their golden retriever, Reggie. He and Jon Bowden took a ski trip to Jackson Hole in March. Jon is creating a Web series called “Back of the House,” to be released online in June. * Finally some very sad news from Emily Goetcheus Stephens. Her son, Gabriel Montgomery, passed away in February. Gabriel is survived by his loving parents, Emily and Glen Howard Stephens, four grandparents, an aunt, two uncles, and four cousins.
