Comments:

I married my high school sweetheart, J.R. Stewart, in 1964, the same week I graduated from the U. of Utah in elementary education. I taught school for 4 years while my husband attended medical school here at the U. of Utah.
Since that time I have kept busy with our family, church, friends and travel. Most of my summers for the last 22 years have been spent here at home teaching and organizing swimming lessons along with our children.
Now that we are retired we travel several times a year. 5 years ago we spent 7 weeks and visited 7 countries in Eastern Europe. We traveled by train and without any reservations. We kept in touch with our family through the internet. We found internet cafes to book our reservations. We traveled in Sept. and Oct., so had no problem finding accommodations. Last year my husband and I spent our 45th anniversary in Paris.
We are huge Utah Jazz fans and have had season tickets for 34 years. I love to crochet, play tennis and swim.
I love being a grandmother to our 23 grandchildren. 5 of our 6 children live near us. One daughter lives in Vancouver, WA., with her 5 children.
In June, 2014, we celebrated our 50th anniversary with all our family. We rented cabins near Jackson Hole, spent time in Yellowstone and floated down the white water rapids. It isn't often we are all together and it was a wonderful week.
Our 55th reunion was wonderful. Hopefully we will see even more at our 60th!
I have a wonderful family and good health (considering my age). Life is definitely good!

School Story:

I have so many wonderful memories of South High. Life long friends that I still see from time to time. My favorite memories are Pep Club,
A 'cappella choir, school plays (The Mikado and Amahl and the Night Visitors ), pep assemblies and of course all the games. A bad memory....Mr. Gerrish and Chemistry...Does anyone remember the day he threw everyone out of the class that had their heads on their desks? No, I wasn't one of them. But he did give me my one and only bad grade while at South.
I love going back to South High and attending the Grand theatre plays. I don't think we realized how beautiful the building was when we were students.

RE: "Dear South High Graduates of 1960,

"Our planning committee for the 60th Reunion, August 28, 2020, has met and decided that due to the COVID-19 pandemic we should postpone our reunion.

"We hope that in the near future, with the development of a vaccine, we will feel more comfortable rescheduling the reunion."

Dear Bethany,

Although I won't be attending regardless, due to my health issues, I am disappointed the August 2020 Reunion has been cancelled (or postponed) for safety reasons. Although I am all in favor of taking measures to guarantee the continued good health of '60 South Cubs like you, it is obvious that the national powers that be have again successfully screwed with the public.

There is a cure for the medical issue causing the pandemic:

I sincerely hope you and the other Reunion committee members won't let the Fauci/Trump/Democrats get away with this nonsense. Maybe someone with musical composition skills can write a fight song.

I hope you and yours all remain well

Byron

Even the entertainment industry is getting in on the fun:

Not quite the Mikado or Amahl but, nonetheless entertaining.

This is definitely a time we never expected or thought we would ever see happen! We are still hoping to have our 60th reunion on Aug. 28, 2020 at our old South High! Our committee has not been able to formalize any plans, but as soon as we are allowed to gather together, we will start getting plans together and let you all know. I am taking advantage of the extra time and scanning old photos that I inherited years ago from my mother. I have many photos of my deceased relatives. My goal is to scan the pictures and post on family search and then hopefully find some of the living relatives and return the original photos to them. It is a long process. At the end of the day, I feel like I have accomplished something that has been on my mind for way too long! We are staying well and only seeing our family from a distance. Our grandkids have dropped off some treats and waved to us. Our daughter went around to our house and the houses of our grandchildren (those that live near us) a few days ago. This is the picture our daughter took of my husband, our son and me! Stay well! Hope to see everyone in August! Bethany Anderson Stewart

What a nice note from a nice lady.

As this "social distancing" (what an awful name for it) moves along, my mind (gray cells) ponder. Here is my latest:

Much has been said about the 100% successful (“At day 6 post-inclusion, 100% of patients treated with hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin combination were virologicaly cured”) French drug trial:

https://www.mediterranee-infection.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/Hydroxychloroquine_final_DOI_IJAA.pdf

Following the 17 MAR 2020 publication of the now famous French trial, another disastrous trial was done in Brazil which has become almost as infamously renown as the French study became famous. A new (24 APR 2020) online publication of the Brazil Trial is now available containing its details:

https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamanetworkopen/fullarticle/2765270?utm_source=For_The_Media&%3butm_medium=referral&%3butm_campaign=ftm_links&%3butm_term=042420

Among this detailed publication can be found this paragraph from the Brazil Trial sponsors:

“...We were not able to independently assess the toxic role of CQ [Chloroquine] because all patients were already using azithromycin, as per hospital protocol. Official recommendations from China called attention to the nonsimultaneous use of CQ and azithromycin because of potentially synergistic cardiac toxic effects. This combination [Chloroquine and Azithromycin] was also used to treat some patients from Marseille, France, without any concerning safety report [false, the French Trial used Hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin, not Chloroquine and Azithromycin, and the amounts in the French Trial were significantly reduced in comparison to the Brazil Trial amounts]. Most patients (89.6%) in our study were also receiving oseltamivir for suspected influenza infection [Oseltamivir (Tamiflu) is an antiviral medication that blocks the actions of influenza virus types A and B in your body. Oseltamivir is used to treat influenza in people 2 weeks of age and older who have had flu symptoms for 2 days or less], which also increases QTc interval and could have adverse cardiac effects. The data presented here refer to patients in whom CQ, azithromycin, and oseltamivir were concomitantly used because of the atypical circumstances of an unknown disease. Further conclusions on synergistic cardiotoxic effects might be possible with ongoing studies’ results worldwide, as soon as they are presented to the scientific community."

Consequently, who knows what further review of the specific details of these two trials will uncover. Correct

My friendship with Jeanette began when we were 9 years old and when I moved to Salt Lake City.

I have so many wonderful memories of the years and especially our years at South High School.  Jeanette was a friend to everyone she met.

I will miss her but will cherish so many memories of our years of friendship.  This picture was taken on a 'girls trip' to Sun Valley, Idaho.  Until we meet again, Jeanette, I will forever remember and love you!
