Charlie Sanders is living Hilton Head and playing some golf. “I see Gill Campbell at World Affairs Council every other Friday. Spending summers in Park City, UT standing in a river with a fly rod, freezing our rears off and wondering why they call it fishing.” Charlie sees Ric Catoni from time to time “laughing and comparing notes as new grandparents.”
Robin Tassinari is a full time professor of medicine and psychiatry at Albany Medical College and likes it very much. “I hear regularly from Steve Nuernberger who’s retired and now a dedicated fisherman in Montana. Very much miss hearing from the late Roger Derderian.”
Judge Ray Reynolds Graves has retired from his position as a U.S. Bankruptcy Judge. Detroit’s Chapter 9 municipal bankruptcy he’s on “standby” for on camera commentary for WCIV-TV. “I believe I’ve been on television over twenty times since the case was filed in 2013. It’s an exciting challenge to take complicate legal issues and explain them in understandable English. I remember the demanding standards of scholarship at Trinity, especially Economics Professor Ward Curran, in presenting the information to the viewing public.” Ray can be reached at JRRG@aol.com.
