Here's a picture from the Springville Herald printed 50 years ago this week. I don't recognize Dave Lynn as one of the swimmers, but he was probably nearby. I thought the interesting thing is that Linda and Coke Schardine's dad, Bud, is credited for building the starting blocks the swimmers are diving from. This is a sample of the cool stuff you can now find online at Utah Digital Newspapers. I clicked on the "advanced search" button, checked the "All newspapers" box to eliminate the checks on all the newspapers and then scrolled down to the Springville Herald and clicked to put a check just on that newspaper. Then I went back to the "date range" search and enter 1969-06-20 to 1969-06-30 and then scrolled down to the "submit" button at the bottom of the page. It brought up the Herald issue for June 26, 1969 and I looked through some of the pages and found this photo and article. It's pretty straight forward, but if you have difficulty let me know and I'll try and walk you through the process.

And thanks, Clint, for the shout out, but I had a small part in a large effort that thanks to you, the University of Utah and the Marriott Library gave us a huge gift of historical material to search for free online!

It looks like everybody is going, even the kid on the side. All age groups at a time.

Yes, thank you Clint and Daryl. Some months ago when this information was posted earlier I took a trip down memory lane through the Springville Herald archives and found this classic (attached). It is at Springville Jr. High on the stairs, of Mr. Orton's typing class. Have fun remembering. On another topic for us 69ers who grew up in the Beatles era, make sure you go see the new movie "Yesterday." You'll love it.

Thanks for the birthdays wishes. I had a great birthday hiking with my two grand daughters (5 & 7) in the Efin Forest in Escondido, CA. Just got back yesterday and glad to be home again. It was good to see you at the reunion, I hope you enjoyed it. Take care and I hope you enjoy the rest of the summer.

Shauna, he was just looking for the potential in his students. He was hoping to see you grow a little while under his watchful gaze.

Good idea Daryl, we have some left over paint. We should cut the sides out too.

Kenneth Strong

I just heard that. What a great guy he was

"A Whole Lot of Love" for that Saint. It was our privilege to have him write that song for our 50th reunion. He wanted to be here for it. He was kind and always welcomed a conversation. I'm going to miss him.

I don't know any specific circumstances surrounding Randy's passing, but I do know his health hadn't been great the past few years. He had lost a lot of weight on his doctor's orders, but still needed an oxygen tank to help with his breathing. About a week ago, I met a friend from Randy's ward in Hawaii who said he was worried about his health. I guess he had good reason. I suppose Randy just exchanged one paradise for another.

Hi everyone. 

Got a message from Ray Newbury that while helpintg one of their sons to Florida that Patty has suffered a mild stroke. They are still there trying to figure out just how much damage has been done and just how they will be returning to Utah. 

I asked Ray if he minded people knowing and he was ok with it and would like your faith and prayers in their behalf. 

Thanks Larry

You've probably noticed our class heart beat has slowed down. Daryl is recovering from being old. Prayers to to you brother.

UTawna Johnson (Witney)

Prayers for a healthy recovery, Daryl.

Dave ... what's the Rx for recovering from being old?!  We need to know!! :)

Daryl Tucker

Thanks! The good thoughts and prayers are working! I spent a couple of days in the hospital with pneumonia. (By the way, the pneumococcal pneumonia shots only protect you from one type of bacteria! So, get the shots, but don't expect to be completely protected!) I'm feeling much better, but my doctor says it might be several weeks before I get back to full speed. You never know what might be around the corner, so take it easy everyone and stay healthy!
