Mr Huebner, I don't know if you remember me but I, Alma Ippolito Walshak, was in both your English and Comparative Religion classes in junior high. I remember the great discussions we had in class and also your emphasizing "always ask WHY, WHY WHY!". Unfortunately I left Scarborough after my freshman year but I do have very fond memories of my years there. I hope you and your family are doing well. How did you end up in Vermont???
