Maureen (Silvia) Rose -
I am a holistic health practitioner and I specialize as
a chronic pain therapist. Very busy; there are lots of women in pain.
Maureen wrote, in 2010: I am going back to school. I will keep the glass studio,
and I will always be an artist, but I have had a life long dream since I was seven
years old. I always wanted to be a nurse, a Florence Nightingale (my hero at seven)
... so, I am going back to school to get my nursing degree. I should be done by the
time I am 64. Ever since I got my new kidney (September 2009) I have been thinking
about how much the nurses made a difference in my care. Well, I have worn the hat
of a substance abuse counselor, a medical assistant, and a holistic health practitioner
... and now I am ready to put on the hat of a surgical tech nurse. I don't know how
many years I have left, I am hoping at least ten, but I will finally attain my
life’s dream for myself.

Melinda (Kaufmann) Landsburg - I live in Nevada City, CA with my
husband of a billion years, Jeff. We have no human children but a houseful
of the little hairy ones. I currently own a shop called LALOO in downtown
Nevada City. If you'd like to take a gander, it's at
If anyone who remembers me is ever in Nevada City, stop by and say "hi".
Mike Argo - I've lived in Clayton for the last 14 years.
I went to DVC, served three years in the navy, including two tours in Viet Nam,
came home and graduated from Sacramento State. I joined the Contra Costa County
Fire District in 1973, married Deborah in 1974. We have two children, a son
who is in the Air Force and a daughter who is, in 2004, a second-generation
student at CVHS. I retired as an Assistant Fire Chief in April 2003. We are
hoping to move to the southwest when we become empty-nesters. In the mean time,
I'm remodeling the house, spending lots of time on my mountain bike and hiking
(trying to stay in shape) and traveling.
