  1. Does anyone in the Newburyport, Newbury, Byfield, and Rowley area remember Pam Harlow, ( Triton class of 1973)? Lost touch with a lot of people when Triton opened. It was great having NHS as a regional high school during my first two years there. I always hung out with my Newbury friends due to my house being in such close proximity to the town line. I had a “Crush” on Pam those two years. And then all but we Newburyporters were left the last years… I became one of several class clowns for the remainder of my stay there and went on to a short stint in the Navy and then into the recession of the early 70’s.I moved to Exeter, NH nearly 25 years ago and have been raising my 16 year old son here. I am close enough to Newburyport to keep contact with those friends and relatives who remain there. Also, how about Ken Hussy from the Kelly school? I used to hang with Ken at the Mall when I skated there.

  2. Looking for an old friend that lived in Newburyport in the early to mid 1980s . Does anyone remember Michael Norton ? He used to live on Bromfield Court , then on Charter Street for a short while before going into the service ( around 1990 ) Anyone who is related to Mike or knows his whereabouts would be greatly appreciated …

  3. Pam Strykowski, I would go hang out with her in the mornings before school, my heart ached to be around her. I would take my dog ‘out’ for a walk and bring him over to her house. we’d chill in her bedroom on her bed, her room smelled like Vanilla candles, I can’t smell a vanilla candle to this day without thinking of her.
    I lived in Spring Street at the time, and she lived on Atwood.
    It was a bummer, she went to Triton not NHS. I dunno how she managed that…

  4. I had the occasion to throw Bob Chase out of a Pioneer League game he was coaching for questioning a call I made as base umpire. I remember Bob as a high school and Senior Leagu pitcher throwing many a game at the Belleville School field where my childhood home was at the end of Murphy Street. Bob had a great moustache as I recall.

  5. Lost touch with many a neighbor and friends as the years past. Albert “Tinkah” Thurlow, “Gwen” who worked for Saunder’s drug store at the corner of Purchase and Lime. How about Ernie Doughty, ( not sure of the spelling…)? The Jubert’s who owned the corner store that also served as the south end post office at the corner of Franklin and Purchase? Is “Red” the milkman from Webster’S Riverside Dairy still with us? Andy Hay, ( unsure of spelling). Mr. “Pete” Gullasien, one of the good teachers from NHS in the late sixties and early seventies. Along with Mr. “Furmer” Latime, Mrs. Laganas, Mrs. Katz, Mrs. Shapiro, Mr. French, Mr. Bagdoian, Mr. Simard, Mr. Wheeler, Mr. Brian “Pheep” Sullivan,(Sorry Mr. Sullivan). I am going to add to this list as the names come to me.And they always do. The people we lost touch with who helped shape our lives or who we just have a memory or two of. Come on NEWBURYPORTLAND, we all have lists I’m sure. It was the people as well as the structure of our city that made those “better” times…
