Newark High School Wildcats - Class of 1960

         African Wild Cat (Felis silvestris libyca)

Sandy brown to yellow grey in color, with black stripes on the tail, the African Wild Cat was tamed by the Egyptians over 4,000 years ago. Pure genetic stock of today are  found only in remote areas.  Fierce when threatened, African Wild Cats can protect themselves from much larger animals.

Bonnie Sunkle Bartlett riding at a game reserve in Kentucky. The two horses in the photo belong to she and Clyde. Clyde commented that they have five horses, four chickens and a Golden Retriever, which means he spends half of his time moving manure.  Not too hard to guess what Bonnie says about that...the other half of the time is spent spreading it. Hmmmm, do you think there is a hidden message there?

Central Jr High - Wayne Newton

The Newark Advocate - Scenes from Yesteryear ran this picture with the comment: "He was the only student in Central Junior High's Sixth grade to wear a tie when the school year class photo of 1953-54 was taken.  The familiar face is second from left in the top row.  He's Wayne Newton.  The young singer often performed at old Hillbilly Park near Hanover during the few years his family lived in the area.  Several of his cousins still live here."

Submitted by Al Leckrone

The boy in the top row, 2nd from left grew up to be Mr. Las Vegas, Wayne Newton.  Just another star in a field of many!  Now, who's that plaid sweater wearing friend in the same row 6th from the left?  

                            Danke schön, Al!
