I have not lived with, nor married any other Batesies, but I did see a Bobcat postcard at the bookstore, so I’m certain our presence is felt everywhere – though some withered old lady snatched the postcard before I could get it. I pleaded with her, but she said that the muskrat one would do just as well and that in any case a penny whistler such as myself shouldn’t be picky. Irrelevance is in season. I’d write more, but I have clammy hands and you know the rest.”… Kara Buckstaff writes: “I just spent five months at Mote Marine Lab in Sarasota, Fla., where I was involved in two different internships. I spent two months helping the stranding network retrieve and/or rehabilitate dolphins. The second internship involved data collection in Sarasota Bay on dolphin behavior relative to boat activity.

She’s doing well and I was glad to see her again.”… Emily Cause reports: “I am teaching the fifth grade and working on getting my master’s in education.

I just finished my stint as the assistant volleyball coach and am now the assistant girls basketball coach. I serve as a dorm parent for 14 girls, supervising study hall and lights-out, three nights a week. I also have several advisees, and monthly take groups of students on trips to the movies, Boston, etc. The other, mostly young faculty and I look forward to spare moments off and realize just how much we’ve aged in such a short time.

I consider myself lucky to be in an office that has, at its core, many of the same values I embrace and that were cultivated through my Bates education.
