Message Forum

Welcome to the Woodland High School Message Forum.

The message forum is an ongoing dialogue between classmates. There are no items, topics, subtopics, etc.

Forums work when people participate - so don't be bashful.  But be respectful.  This may seem like a private chat room, but 800 of your classmates have access to it (and ~two dozen of your former teachers), and many more read than participate.  

We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.  Access and participation on this forum is not a right, it is a privilege and abuse may result in suspension or revocation of WHS60s site access at any time.  Abuse includes but is not limited to personal attacks, offensive, demeaning, excessive or nonsensical posts, badgering, foul language, etc.  The forum is not a place to disparage others, especially deceased classmates.  The website was continued after the reunion for the enjoyment of the members.  They shouldn't be subjected to annoying posts when they come to the Message Forum.  Just remember the sandbox rules.

We do not actively monitor the forum, but do respond to complaints (please use the Contact Us link in the left panel) and we will take action as appropriate.

I have been out of the country for a month and have not had a chance to post this photo of Carolyn Hand Bradley who passed away August 27, 2019. Her obituary can be found on this website in the "In Memory" section.  

Carolyn Joy Hand Bradley   WHS 1960   RIP

      At the bottom of her 1960 WHS year book photo is written:

                 "Let us forgive and forget"

Very sad to learn of Carolyn passing.  I am friends with Wanda Hand.  Alice did my Mother's hair for years, as did Wanda.  One reason Mother's hair was always so perfect.  My prayers to all the family at this time.

My brother, JAMES OLIVER NORTHUP, died peacefully, in his sleep this afternoon.  He was surrounded by his loving wife, son and daughter in his own home in Davis.

Jim had shown me the wonderful huge greeting card classmates had made for him only a few weeks ago at the class of 69 fifty year reunion.  He fought hard against the disease, diagnosed in 1981 and at that time told he had only about a year and a half to live.  Even up to the end, when his hospice nurse predicted he would die by Monday, he held on until Wednesday.  I’m embarrassed to admit that even when he could barely whisper, whenever I saw him he wanted to hear about my problems and worries and not discuss his own.  And I miss his ever-ready smile, even when things were awful. 

I will post notice here when his memorial service is planned, and I hope Robert Cowing will help out by posting his obituary.  (Thanks, Robert, I live in Stockton, so I don’t get the local newspaper.  I really appreciated your posting the piece the newspaper did on Jim a few months ago.)

Katherine Northup Schick, class of ‘65

Condolences to you and your family. I was so happy to have a short talk with John at the reunion. I'm glad he got the card so he knew we all missed his being there. He was an amazing person.  Katy

So sad to hear about the passing of Jim. Although I did not know him

personally, I felt like I got to know him from the article and comments that have been 

posted. My condolences to all his family. 

He was a very gifted and loved person and will be missed by all those 

that knew him. 

May he Rest In Peace.

In adddition to the many kind thoughts for our classmate, Jim, that I received at our reunion dinner, I was also reminded of several of our many (mis-)adventures as twins growing up in Woodland.  After some rummaging I found photographic evidence for an early episode involving our classmate Joanie Meek Schneider.  This was posted in the Daily Democrat on Valentines Day, 1957(1956?) entitled "Two Hearts for Joan"

Sweet Valentine's Greeting.  Those were the times when the news was so clean and fun in the community.  Love seeing this picture.  Thank you so much.

A sheriffs deputy just came to my door and asked : "Where were you between 4 and 6 ?"....and I said: "Kindergarten."

Tim Tucker - Where can I catch your act? Do you ever play Vegas? We're glad that you're still cracking corn and aren't tuckered out yet. (Betcha never heard that one before.)

I hate it when I offer someone a sincere compliment on their mustache and suddenly she's not my friend anymore.

Vern Larson (1960)

Tim I know exactly how you feel! 
I was at the gym the other day and saw a woman struggling with some weights. Wanting to encourage her I said, "FOR A FAT GIRL YOU SURE DON't SWEAT MUCH!" She gave me the most awful look! 😡

Vern, if you can't say something nice...we're probably related.
