  1. This was before my age, but looking at the faces, I can see that of all the characters in all of my classrooms….shy, bright, troublemaker, teacher’s pet, rascal, goody two shoes, future rascals…etc The year doesn’t make a difference to kids.

  2. Four years later I helped clean up after the total destruction by flood. I understand this was the second largest population of any city in Oregon, gone in minutes.
