Comments This is great! I along with everyone else miss the good ol days of Panama. I lived on Howard AFB, attended Ft.Kobbe Elementary, Curundu, and upto 10th at Balboa. You do not realize how much you will actually miss Panama until you're gone and back in the states. We returned back to the states in 86' and I have visited a couple of times since. My Dad transferred back to Bergstrom AFB in Austin. My Dad lucked out and returned in 90' and retired in 98', thus returning back to TX. My sisters were, Melinda, Belinda, and Sandy, Sandy was the loud one. Hope to hear from anyone I knew.

Comments Taking a little break at work to drop you all a line. While Doing CAD design I have to monitors here at work. On one is the drawing I'm working on, while on the other is part of my CAD menu. Through the email window I have the CNN Central America weather satellite. Through the CZBratz page I have the live cam at Miraflores.

Though I was part of the class of '73, I spent my last year of highschool working on a ranch in Wyoming, where I graduated. I often think of people I grew up with in the Canal Zone and wonder how they are. Keeping these two images here with me helps me feel closer to home. Thanks for maintaining this wonderful web page!!

Comments Hey everyone! I've got to say the 3 1/2 years that I lived in Panama was fantastic.. and I really miss it. Just going through this website brings back so many memories. I think I moved to Panama in 1995 and left in 1998. I went to Balboa Elementary School for my 3rd grade year, and then I moved to "Farfan" and went to Howard Elementary for 4-5th grade. At Curundu Middle School, I left in the middle of my 6th grade year. I just know that had to of been the best middle school ever...swimming in the pool for gym class, taking the bus to the bowling alley. "I mean, it was just the best school anybody could of gone to." I'm really looking forward to next year, because my mother and I are supposed to go to Panama. Anyways, before I leave I want to say "HEY" to all my friends=Monica Glass,Diana Fernandez,Daniela Cousar,Giovanni Wedderburn,Shania Hall,Kristina+Ruben(forgot last name),Elizabeth Salinas,and Holly Carver. Sorry if I didn't put your name.
*~Bue Bye~*

Comments so nice to visit this site. I always read of friends I have not heard of for awhile. I read about people's life in the Canal Zone and enjoy when they share there life's in CZ. Anyway life for me in the Canal Zone was as follows. I was born in Gorgas and lived in Balboa. My father was a Canal Zone police and my Mom was a teacher. I went to St. Mary's for elelmentary and junior high, living on El Prado. School was mostly competing in track and flag football against Balboa Elementary, Gamboa and Los Rios, won all those games, track's competion was Balboa mostly and Howard Elementary. Evening activities where ringolivio, almond fights with the Rineharts, Harps, Corigans and Huesom's. Christmas time brought us the famous wars for the bragging rights of having the largest christmas tree pile for the annual bonfire. Then there was the Balboa Rams. Serious football. Mostly great games against Christobal Tigers, Kiwani Kolts, Paraiso Bengals, Albrook Jets, Clayton Cowboys, Ft Davis Raiders and Haword Eagles. This was peewee,lightweight and heavyweight's. Coached mostly by coach Dare & Gare. Then it was off to Curundu Jr. High. Life was mostly hanging out with Jerry Curtis, Adam Mitts, Marco Preito and Raul Quintero. Lot's of Friday night's at the owl show, wed. nite at the balboa pool and clubhouse afterwards. After that came BHS and all the traditions of BHS. Bulldog football, causeway, french cut, Cocoli bridge, swing bridge, chiva chiva, observatory, spinning club, the chicken coop, yaght club starting on thursday night, el rancho, VFW, Palmar, Coronado, rocky falls, sink hole in Santa Clara, Charlie's beach house, cayuco races, Jerry's motorcross races, which took us to all parts of Panama, Boquete, Chiriqui, Los Santos and Costa Rica. after school like most of us I had to leave ( kicking and screaming the whole way ) and moved to the states. Even after all these years I have kept in touch with most of my childhood friends and get together as much as possible, mostly at the reunion's. I must say life has been good to me. Thank you Canal Zone.
