  • Tami (Northcutt) Clark,  Alexander, Maine. 1976-1983 Calais Elem-Middle School. I love the past in our area. Viewing ole photos can be very exciting.
    Sharing some of my favorite pictures at my restaurant has been very rewarding for me. It also gets others sharing stories they recall from the pictures or post cards I have. I believe my customers enjoy them as much as I do. Nook & Cranny Restaurant.

  • Mark Osborne, Ellsworth ME. Hi! I'm not a "real" alumnus, cause I had to move away from Calais after my sophomore year. But I've got enough dirt on most of you that you'd better not contest my eligibility! My fondest memories of CMHS are of the characters I went to school with, followed closely by playing guitar and singing in various rock bands, most notably The East Coast. Along with me, Ken Kelley played drums ( I see him often, and a couple of weeks ago we had lunch together. If you're ever in this area, call me. We've got some awesome seafood restaurants in these here parts.) Dale Tudor was an earlier member who is now a prominent insurance agent in the Bangor area. Ernie Scholl played bass and drove the hearse that transported our equipment. Jack "Bo Diddley" Emack played organ, and Dr. Larry Linnell (who I think lives in Pennsylvania now) played rhythm guitar. You may have attended one of our twice-weekly dances, first at the Academy Street Gym, then at the Calais Armory. I got a surprise visit today [7/30/99] from Don Clark ('71) who now lives and works in Boston and is one of the most sought-after soundmen on the Northeast concert circuit. I've recently exchanged e-mails with Kathy Morrison White and Ken Strout. After The Beatles hit in '64, Ken and I learned to play guitar together because we realized that by doing so, the girls would stop spitting on us. Ken is now (and I say this with admiration) a big shot with Maine Central Railroad, although he would never give himself the credit. Kathy refuses to tell me much about her personal life, except to say that Ricky Martin and Tom Cruise keep calling her for dates, but she refuses, because she's happily married. As for me, I live in Ellsworth with my hot-ticket wife Marisa and daughters Katie (10) and Becky (6). To pay the bills, I own three radio stations in the Bangor area: Kiss 94.5, Lucky 99, and 104.7 The Bear. So let's exchange CMHS war stories! And by the way, did Mr. Lunt look like Drew Carey, or what?!
