I got my card taken down for hitting Nick Houshower - Jessica Edmiston

"Once in the fifth grade I got my card taken down for hitting Nick Houshower in the face with the playground tetherball when he wasn't playing by the rules. I had to stay after school and write a paper about how hitting him made me feel and what I learned. Sorry, Nick." 
- Jessica Edmiston

Rick Ramseyer: "All these years later, I still remember the dread of the quarry test"

"All these years later, I still remember the dread I felt before taking the quarry test. This wasn't a written exam, and it had nothing to do with school. It was a rite of passage for any Bluffton kid who wanted to earn the right to swim in the Buckeye."
- Rick Ramseyer

Ruth Naylor reveals a 1981 BHS yearbook secret

Ruth Naylor, on being the BHS yearbook advisor:
"I was the Buccaneer yearbook advisor. Matt Ziessler, a senior and our staff artist in 1981, created some lovely artwork for the interior of the book and also designed the cover which features two large foaming waves on a sea of blue.

"If you look very closely at the white foam, you can see the words “Pink Floyd,” the name of a popular singing group that some but certainly not everyone appreciated in the Eighties.

Confessions of a "marching band geek"

Amanda Rhonemus:
I can honestly say that I loved being in marching band in high school. There was actually an award created for me called the "I Love Marching Band More Than Life Itself " award.

It was one of those things that people made fun of, but I absolutely loved. I don't know that I can put the feeling into words, but I can say that I always have and always will be a marching band geek.
