Taryn Brodwater: Lakeland High's Class of 97 is coming up July 28-29. We're at Curley's on Saturday and then Rathdrum City Park for a family BBQ the next day. The Otis ran into a friend of his some time ago who ended up marrying one of my Lakeland classmates. She was still irked (10 years later) about an article I wrote for the school paper and won't let her husband hang out with Otis anymore. Hopefully the rest of the class has forgotten my antics as a high school journalist ... I guess we'll find out.
DFO: I was reading through my old yearbooks a few months back. I was struck by several comments that basically said: "Why were you always causing trouble in the school newspaper?" I guess some of us were born with ink in our veins, Taryn. If your classmate -- or any other classmate -- gives you trouble at the reunion as a result of something your wrote 10 years ago ... burn 'em on your blog.
