Jeff Parness is a professor at Northern Illinois University College of Law in Dekalb. He recently signed a contract with the American Bar Association to publish a book titled The Top Ten Misconceptions About U.S. Parentage Laws. * Steve and Laura Struckhoff Cline welcomed their newest grandchild, Dallas Cameron Miller, June 14. Dallas is their fourth grandchild … all girls! * Barrett “Barry” Hurwitz reports that at age 55 his young wife just took early retirement from teaching art to pursue creations of her own, mostly three-dimensional art. She has displayed her work at galleries and several museums along the East Coast. Barry continues to practice law, and he still plays acoustic guitar daily. He has a collection of 14 guitars, including one hand-carved in Bali that he purchased from a small Canadian company called Blueberry Guitars. Barry recently had some professional dealings with classmate Alan Cantor, who continues to practice law in Boston and is doing well, too. * Debbie Anderson retired from her 39-year career in geriatric social work in April. In June she had a wonderful visit with Joan Katz, Anne Pomroy, and Donna Webber Burkart in Boston and Maine. It is one of the joys of being retired that she at last has time for visits with old friends. Her husband, Michael, still works as a software engineer at Sonosite. This fall they leave for Scotland to visit daughter Kim, who is finishing graduate school and living with her longtime boyfriend in Edinburgh. Debbie will also be going walking for a week with her sister and Kim in the Cotswolds in England and then to the Yorkshire Dales. She will then meet her other daughter, Holly, in London, and they plan to visit an old friend in Arusha, Tanzania, and hike in the Usambaras. Debbie looks forward to this special time with her daughters and plans to be back for the reunion next June. She invites everyone to come visit them in Seattle. * Bill Aldrich is looking forward to our 45th reunion. While he cannot bike to Colby this time, he is looking for a contact at Colby to help organize a group of bikers who would like to cycle to reunion. * My husband, Bob, and I have had a fairly quiet summer, spending most of our time at our home on Lake Winnipesaukee, Tuftonboro, N.H. Our grandchildren, Caroline, 7, and Riley, 5, spent a fun week with us in July without their parents. Caroline attended a day camp down the lake from us. Bob had hoped to teach Riley how to row and sail, but unfortunately Bob broke his elbow the first weekend of their stay. Best to all, and THINK REUNION!
