I agree, I so wish some of those staff would contact us....

Wouldn't it be AWESOME to hang out with Fred Fig, Bob and Toni Levy, Bob and Betsy Blair, Lisa and Mark Witt, Dave Tomlinson, Shaun and Vicky Carroll, Guillermo, etc. as X's?! :happydance:

I'd also love to hang out with the beloved West Palm Beach Staff too, they are all awesome people too!

Don and Jan Meuse, Tim Flynn, my first auditor ever, Patty Goldstein (?? can't remember her last name...but loved her laugh and sweet, happy personality!:)

Hugs to any/ALL of you if you are lurking!!!

OMG Michelle "her" name was Patti Goldman. Now it's Patti Thompson. She was the Mission Holder until about two years ago. Was on service until last November AFIK. You are right about her personality. She's a doll. Maybe ImOut knows where she is.......................................

Michelle, I am going to watch a movie with my kid. I'll be back later. Let me know what you'd like to say to the former Mission Holder of WPB, or any questions you might have for her. I'll check and see what she has to say.:whistling:

That's about it right now. I can picture so many other ones but don't remember first or last name right now. I'll send my file clerk to get the names and get back to you - depending on his comm lag. :thumbsup:

BTW, most of these guys and girls were super, super nice. It would be great to talk to some of them. But of course, this was over 25 years ago! I know some were Declared, others died, etc. I'm sure some are still on staff. I hope others have made it out and are reading this!


Wow, I remember almost all of those people! I was there '81-'82 as an outer org Continental TTC member from New York. A lot of good people!

Love, Dex

Cecelia Maddigan (treasury)-(Sweet girl. Still has her Loooong hair and was STILL in Treasury when we left....I think she still does Treas here and there, but Joy Murphy now has that post. (former Nanny when we were in).
Gary Botteroff (asshole per KR's) OES-(Think he's still that post...he used to have a roofing company and many of the local scn's/staff worked for him until he was forced to get rid of them due to some policy for employing Staff...I even lived with him and his wife KB for a couple months...off post, Gary could be a nice guy, but on post...he was always sort of a hard ass....)

Charlie Fox-(Great guy! He was FSM I/C and worked with him quite a bit, since hubby and I were Div 6'ers...he and Cat Fox were married for a few years....don't know where he is now...)

Did you know a Claire Jeans? She was Qual when we were there....

Sadly, she died of Lung Cancer about five or so years ago now...I never minded her, but others thought she was a beyotch....

Did you know the word-clearer, Sheila? (last name escapes me at the moment). Always liked her,but others had issues with her attitude....

I agree with you, nearly all the Staff were great people!

Norman Vespie?

Was he in the training div? I lived with him and Sue his wife briefly once. It was a weird experience.

It started out so good…NO, it was a CON from the gitgo

As much as I'd like to think it was good when I got in ( early 70's ) there children in the chain lockers were already old history.

Who among us would have gotten into a group were small children were put in the chain locker on a ship ?

Ah, those 'good old days ' at CC where there was FREE live entertainment every night & snacks available for a fee.

Yep. No license to sell food. Not up to health codes. No permit for parking lot - just off the street - entertainment. Building not up to fire code. Electrical system not up to code.
SO staff being recruited from homeless people. Staff stuffed - really stuffed - into inadequate housing. Staff child care criminal.

Those ' good old days' ?

Some sing the praises of " back then" but unfortunately back then & today are just SSDD.
