Comments:

I left TL High after my sophomore year. I attended a high school that was created by a group of teachers called Shasta. Shasta was a small privately owned accredited high school of about 30 students and 12 teachers. Only in Marin.

Many of my friends went to Vallecito and Terra Linda and when asked I usually say I went to TL.

I worked in construction as a carpenter for many years. Since I was a kid I wanted to combine architecture and construction. it seems unnatural to separate the two. Jim Burris and Dan Meek helped and inspired my return to school where I took remedial subjects at SF City College at night. 1984 I received a BS in architecture from CAL. I worked for James McDonald and Associates an architectural firm in San Anselmo. James McDonald was like a father to me. I started a design/build business in 1991 in Novato where I became a husband and father.

Of alI the fortunate events God gave me none was as fortunate as when I met Laura, my wife of 31 years. She was and, although we divorced in 2012 in many ways continues to be my life's guide. Laura and I raised 2 wonderful beautiful children in Novato where I operated a small business and Laura was a stay at home mom.

I now live in Santa Rosa. I still design buildings once in a while but most of my work is Construction Management.

I am always excited when I run into someone who graduated from Terra Linda high school. I may or may not know them but I usually find we have shared experiences and stories that shaped who we have become.

School Story:

5 days before my freshman year began I broke my neck in Sandi Wazaluski's (sp.?) pool. Although the break was a multiple and compound fracture involving several vertebrae, I didn't know it was broken. GH Gibson and I rode our bikes home that afternoon. I remember, more than the neck pain a feeling of terror that comes with the first day of freshman year.

For the first 2 weeks in high school I walked around with a frozen broken neck. After Jeff Goss coined the name everybody called me "crook neck".
I fell off the bleachers in the gym where we were all assembled for our year book photos (year book photos the 2nd week of school? I always thought that was weird). After the fall I knew something was terribly wrong so I walk down to my doctor's office at the end of Nova Albion Way where the Northgate medical building where story continues... .

I came back to school later that year. An awkward 6'-2" guy with a gigantic neck grace and shaved head. Mike Pico and I hitchhiked to Altamonte where I can be seen with my brace and shaved head in "give me shelter" movie. Maybe you remember seeing me at TL?

Hi Larry, I just read your remembrance of Debbie Scioto. Thanks for sharing those memories of her and your families. Debbie was a wonderful person and a caring friend.
