An article in this weeks Grizzly tells of Nick Cavanaugh pitching
professionally with the Lexington Legends, a Class-A farm team for the
Houston Astros. After graduating from High School Nick pitched for Redlands

Dear Dr Waner - It is such a pleasure to get this e-mail. I am Kathy
McEntire, formerly Dotts, and I graduated in 1977. I left Big Bear in about
1980, then with the passing of my father in 1992 we sold my parents home in
Moonridge and moved my mother here to Washington until she passed in 2000.
I have now lived in Lake Stevens Washington for almost seventeen years, and
it would remind you of Big Bear in many ways.
I have not received any information from Harris Publication, and would love
to be on an alumni list. I am hoping that some of my classmates are
starting to plan a 30 year reunion for our class next year, but I have not
heard anything yet. I am planning on attending the all school reunion in
September, and look forward to seeing many familiar faces.
Thank you for all of the great news that you send with your newsletter - it
is always a pleasure to read.
Looking forward to September - Kathy McEntire
High School Alumni Directory
The Steven G. Mihaylo/ Big Bear High School Education Foundation is in the
process of putting out a Big Bear High School Directory. The Harris
publishing company will be contacting all alumni of Big Bear High and asking
if you want to participate in the directory. You do not have to purchase a
directory to have you name added to the directory data bank. Our High
School has never had an alumni directory and this has been a major
undertaking of the SGM/BBHS Education Foundation for the past year. Be sure
and return the information requested from Harris publishing. If you do not
receive any correspondence by August 25, please let me know and we will be
sure to add you to the mailing.
