Comments I was 16 when all the bases were turned over to Panama. My family wasn't in the military so, we contnued to live there for a few years since then. Now that I am abroad (again, it is something I cannot excape now) I would be delighted to meet up with others who were in Panama around the same time I was!

Comments Hola Amigos,
Thought I would drop a line to let everyone know that we have now been Hurricane free for 4 weeks. After Hurricane Charley blew through our county, it seemed as though we would have one every two weeks. Now, we are having DT's from not having to rush, shop and get prepared. Now that we are ready, things slow down.
Recovery has been going fine, but will take a long time.
Give us a holler, would love to hear from all. New home phone 941-766-0641

Comments Just reading some of the emotions that old friends and zonians put on this site is moving. Brings back some great memories of days gone by, and days that our children will never know or enjoy. They will only be able to enjoy our cherished memories of a very special place to live (somewhat like a fairytale) The "Gold Coast" was a very special place to grow up.

I haven't seen many entries from the CHS '75 alumni, but would like to know if anyone knows how to get in touch with Sheryl, Susie, Sharon, Steve or Stuart Smith. They lived on Lake Street in Coco Solo until they moved to France Field. I would so much like to know how to get in touch especially with Sheryl.

Just a special "Hey How Are Ya" to Lynnett "Leni" Stokes........ Haven't seen you since the last time I attended the reunion (about 3 yrs ago)

Happy Halloween to all.

Comments I am just going down memory lane reading all the latest comments. It is very nostalgic. We had a BBQ at my home this past weekend with many Zonian present. It was a blast!

We are also having our Austin Zonian luncheon on Nov. 1st at TGIF in north Austin, Tx. Any Zonians are welcome to attend.

Email me and I'll give you detail info and my cell phone number.

Comments Entonces! I wanted to take the time to thank the staff of czbrats for their condolences on behalf of my family and for my sister Vivian Ann who cared for my sister Beverly Rose during her long and painful illness. I learned about her death from the site as I was traveling and out of touch with my family. I am very grateful that I was able to learn of it at all and made my way here to Las Vegas to start over. I am doing very well, healthier than ever, and grateful to God that I am now living a better life with little or no regrets from the first 40 so far. I dont really miss the east coast too much traffic and bochinche the west is very different and well, where else can you be a kid other than Las Vegas Adult playground? Dont let me fool you I haven't even seen a show yet, things have changed around my house. I look forward to going to the reunion next year and seeing old classmates and traveling down memory lane. I hope to surprize many of you who haven't seen me since leaving High School or knew me in my insanity, better to admit and move on to a healthier happier time which is now. If you travel this way drop me a line via email perhaps a Cuban Coffee and a chat might be in order. I live very close to the action (smiles) even if my life is rather simple and nice these days. Take care and peace be with you. Joanne Marie (Jojo)

Comments I lived at Ft. Kobbe from 1967-70.Looking for anyone who was a Kobbe kid then and anyone in my high school class that remembers me. I recently hooked up with George Brittain (Sir George) who I'd been trying to find for years. We had many an adventure: the French Cut, the lighthouse, Vernado beach, the "jumps" at Miraflores, the slide, the Blue Goose.What a great time. Write me if you remember.

Comments This is especially for all the Gatun Gang Cristobal Tigers that will forever 'surf-in'. Plz say hello to Jack Richardson(see a previous posting), he is a grandson-son of the Bargers. I feel he and all of his family will be very welcome at any of the Zonian reunions because he also qualifies as a CZ BRAT due to his Grandparents, Parents, Aunt-n-Uncles bonifide previous employment, residency, attendance of school in the Canal Zone. I still warmly remember the loving embraces of Mrs Ina Barger, the playful gruff slap on the back of Mr. Jack, the exciting football, baseball playing of the Barger Boys. And we all remember the Barger Twins with their creative fire lit pom-pom cheerleading routines. Again, lil' Jack, welcome and CZ-4EVER!!

Comments Hello everyone,my name is Jack Richardson.I was born in Coco Solo,Panama in 76'and lived there until I was 4.I was wondering if anyone remembers me, or my brother Sam, or any of my family.My grandfather was a lockmaster there. His name was Jack Barger.My mother graduated from chs in 1970 and her name is Daryn Barger.My dad was stationed in Panama in the army(that's why I was born there)his name is Danny W Richardson.Also my aunt Donna Barger, and my grandmother Ina Barger, lived there during that time.I was just wondering if anyone on here knew us because I was too young to remember much about those times.Thanx and I'm glad that there is such a site like this.

Comments Was wondering if anyone out there has photos or knows of a web site with pictures of the Brazos Brook Golf Club.Sure would like to see them.I spent many rounds of golf out there in my cz brat youth hacking around with a "bunch" of excellent junior golfers.It's always great to stop on in the clubhouse here to see the latest CZ Brat entries.

Comments Hello everyone! Lived in Gamboa and Corozal, attended St. Mary's, grad BHS '74, have not been back since '75. Am planning a trip home next year. A Zonian to the core, websites like this make me homesick even after all these years. Still looking for old friend Bill Wilson, BHS '72, lived in Los Rios, has a sister Jenny. Also, Pete Gurney, BHS '72, lived in Corozal. If you know of either one's whereabouts, please drop me a line!
