Classmates and friends of the Notre Dame Class of 1968,
Timeliness was the original appeal of a blog for our class notes, photos and messages: instead of waiting three months or so for news, we modern fellows and our friends could avail ourselves of the Internet for timely communication. Since then, a second reason for the blog has come along: the notes submitted to the print magazine undergo a scrubbing for length and, apparently, for consistency with the “Notre Dame brand.” But, as far as we are concerned, we are the Great ’68 and we are the Notre Dame brand. So here we have a place for the kinds of interests and opinions we share freely when we are together.
Using the file directory at the right, you can navigate to pages set aside for various kinds of news: chances to get together (Rendezvous notes), game discusssions, how to find other Notre Dame alumni, several recent columns written about our class for Notre Dame magazine, photos and so on. Perhaps some of you who are good at the technique will prepare a Podcast or a short video at one of the tailgate parties: let people give their names and their messages. We can post the Podcasts and videos on our blog.
We can use the blog to leave comments, too. In order to add your comment, you will have to register. If you want to post photographs or new articles, send me your username at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will take care of the blog administration needed. You can also email me the note or the photo with instructions and I will post the material for you.
If you attend a game, look for the Class of 1968 flag. There, between the stadium and Legends (once the Senior Bar), you will find many of your friends.
Thanks to John Walsh for forwarding this announcement from Eddie Kurtz in New Orleans, who has published three novels suitable for flanking A Confederacy of Dunces on everyone’s bookshelf. Eddie may be the most creative member of our class, though he has competition from some of the excuses given by Pat Hermann and Dick Farina for failure to submit papers.

Dear Friends, Relatives, Colleagues, and Assorted Off-beat People Everywhere
As you may or may not know, I have spent a good deal of time the last few years writing novels about stories that intrigued me for one reason or another. I wanted to let you know that my first three novels, Sex & Gravity, August in New Orleans, and My Casanova were recently published as multi-format ebooks by Smashwords (smashwords.com). All three books are now available for an initial discount of 50% until March 15, 2012
Sex & Gravity tells the story of Snooky Barnes, former one-hit-wonder New Orleans musician, and now family man and high school physics teacher, in a mid-life crisis that sends him careening off across the country in search of love, sex and a regaining of his lost musical mojo. On a wild, Kerouac-esque bolt to find what he thinks is the love of his life, he encounters a parade of wild, engrossing adventures, and zany and endearing characters that come into his life on his search for love. While he doesn’t get the girl, he finally gets his career and mojo back, and learns unexpected life lessons, and surprise twists of fate that change his him forever.
August in New Orleans is the story of a writer who returns home to New Orleans in 2005 amid success with a novel, LEVEES, based very loosely on her family and past life there. While home, she confronts the pains of a dysfunctional family, a history of dark, hidden events, and a sister with whom she has always had a painful, antagonistic, emotionally crippling relationship. The arrival of Hurricane Katrina changes all that, and puts everything at risk, including her life and those around her. As the city is destroyed by the hurricane, her family and life are almost destroyed also, but are pulled back from the abyss through bravery, love and eventual reconciliation.
My Casanova tells the story of a young, female history professor who, seeking a boost to both her personal and professional life, writes a biography and critique of Casanova, perhaps history’s most famous male seducer, from a modern, liberated woman’s view point. Complications and trouble ensues when Casanova comes back to her in various forms and permutations to argue his case, and influence her judgment of him and his morality, especially with regard to his relationship with women. Double trouble comes in the form of the handsome, dashing, sometimes womanizing publisher who takes a chance on her and her book, and gradually becomes the real, living Casanova in her life.

On Friday, September 23, 2011, events beginning with a morning Mass led to the afternoon installation of Brother John Paige, C.S.C., as the president of Holy Cross College. Father John Pearson, C.S.C. was among the celebrants of the Mass and among the guests during the day's celebrations. See the South Bend Tribune editorial pasted below and you will know something of the ambition and energy Brother John Paige brings to the college. For his part, Father John Pearson now represents St. Mary's College as well as Notre Dame. Father John heads the ministerial services staff serving 1,500 young women. “Someone's got to do it,” Father John says.

Holy Cross hails a new leader
September 29, 2011
Congratulations to Brother John R. Paige
who was officially installed as president of Holy Cross College on Friday.
He has been serving the office since
Holy Cross just 10 years ago was best
known as a junior college transferring students to the University of
Notre Dame. Today it's just as often
the recipient of transfers, a four-year school serving 450 full-time students.
Paige hopes to build on that success by
engaging more adults and transfer students from Ivy Tech Community College and other
He already has enriched the school's
experience by pushing to integrate various aspects of student life on campus.
He proposes next to expand Holy Cross'
Center for Intergenerational Learning and add a gerontology major to the
college's current minor, which could well improve the quality of life of aging
Americans everywhere, and especially here. One initiative involves training
individuals to help the aging baby boomer population navigate medical and social services.
Paige's goal is to increase Holy Cross'
enrollment to about 700 full-time students. He believes the current facilities
can accommodate that growth.
Meanwhile, the campus overall soon will
expand into 14 acres being vacated in the relocation of St. Joseph's High
School from Indiana 933 near Angela Boulevard to downtown South Bend.
Paige, a 1968 graduate of Notre Dame,
earned two master's degrees and a doctorate elsewhere and has served in Rome as vicar general of
the Congregation of Holy Cross. We welcome him back and look forward to the
contributions he will bring our entire community through his work at Holy Cross
(After Larry “Monk” Forness sent a note to a group of us):

Great getting your latest ’68 news, and finding out Bob’s (Brady) courageous golf battles.
up in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia on our boat since mid-June. We’ve been
sailing the neighboring waters and recently got back from a cruise of
the southwest coast of Newfoundland. Attached is a picture of our boat
anchored in one of the fjords (Aviron Bay). Great area to get away from
the debt debate and economic news.
We’ll be starting home tomorrow and expect to be home in Marblehead by 1st or 2nd week in September. Looking forward to going out for the Navy game with John Mulligan.
Best to Nancy.
