I remember always standing in front of the trophy case and letting the girls with the short dresses go up the stairs first.

I just came by there and it hasnt started being torn down yet. They have boarded up the doors and put a fence around it but if it was suppose to start coming down by week's end it hasn't yet and they shouldnt have wasted money on the lumber to board the doors up.Heck it was open to any and everybody for awhile it should have been boarded up before then.I am just saying....

Yea I've seen how they've taken all the windows and everything out. It will be sad to see the old school be taken down because I think we can all remember the good times we've had there.

LOL !!! OMG... I wouldn't want the walls to talk. I remember quite a bit about the goings on behind those walls. Wow... in a way it doesn't seem real. I remember my very first day as the bus passed the bridge and I saw that behemoth looming... I thought Oh s**t!!! What the world is this. By senior year it was like home and I had a bit of sadness leaving. I've known many "CUBS" that have come and gone who had a hell of a great time in those corridors.
