Comments as the 2002 pcsociety reunion grows ever closer, i am reminding any and all interested in spending many consecutive hours with chs 77, including faculty, parents, siblings, families and atlantic siders to send a quick email to eva thompson at evath@pacbell.net so we can start thinking about numbers. please send a list of the top 10 songs that remind you of cristobal junior senior high school or the canal zone in general to boatwrenchv8@aol.com as we are hoping to cut a cd or in some way have our tunes played at the reunion. thanks, and keep on dusting off the cobwebs of your memories of the canal zone for we truely lived in paradise.
as a p.s., please forgive me, mrs. weaver, mrs. wilford and all the other english teachers i had the privledge of having as teachers at chs for my lack of usage of capitol letters...

Comments Great website! I sure do miss those days of living in Panama. It was a wonderful place to grow up. My dad was in the FAA and we lived in Cardenas from 1963 thru 1971. Would love to hear from anyone who may have lived there during those days. The last school I went to was 10th grade at Balboa High. Hope to hear from someone soon!

Comments I havent been in this site in awhile and am glad to see that it is being viewed by alot of old Zonies. I am also grateful to see new photos of the new Zone. It pains me to see those photos however, it shows that Panama is improving the Zone rather than make it worse as we all had expected. Miss you guys - drop me a line or two ! Those were the days.

Comments served as a Military Police Sgt with the 549th MP Co from 1970 to 1976. I was the hated traffic sgt. who ran radar a lot on the old S-2 Rd to Ft Sherman and the beaches. I was set to stay in the CZ and join the Canal Zone Police, but there was freeze on hiring when my tour ended. I was in love with a girl who worked at the CZ College Ofc (Florida St Univ.-CZ Branch) in Ft Davis. Her first name was Cheryl and she knows the last name she used when she lived there just in case she reads this and gets ahold of me.
I had a lot of friends there and loved the place. I still hear from some to this day.

Comments Haven't been here in a while - good to see the site is still going strong. My son loves the music and enjoys the pictures. He was asking me about the picture of the bridge on the opening page and was facinated with the webcam of the locks. I get to tell him of all my exploits while in Panama during my high school years - sad I can't raise him there, he would love it! I miss the food, the culture, the life style, the weather, the smells and the beautiful scenery - miss everything. Most of all I miss the wonderful joyful, friendly, soulful people from the Zone and Panama. Hope to someday get back for a vacation - left Panama in 1985 and have not been back. Emails from old friends, classmates, etc. welcome - hope to hear from someone.

Comments Cool, hip, far out web page. I used to work for Stolt-Nielsen and was amazed at the results of her collision with the Prairie Sky. After seeing the damage to the Perserverence, which is cosmetic, it is even more amazing. I daresay that if the Canal were still under American control, this would have never, never happened.
