Comments:

I've been married to my wonderful wife Mary Ann for 35 years. We met while I was working for the City of Simi Valley. I have two delightful children, Jamie and Sara (who, at 34 and 30, aren't children anymore!). After 14 years with the City of Simi Valley (10 as finance officer), we moved to San Luis Obispo in 1988, where I was the City's Finance & Information Technology Director for 22 years until my retirement in May 2010. (Who knew all that math stuff was in my future?)

I've now entered the third act of my career, which includes consulting, training and co-authoring a book on municipal finance, which was published in July 2012: "Guide to Local Government Finance in California" (www.solano.com).

For more information about my "third act" activities, visit my web page at www.bstatler.com.

Hey Mike - Happy B-Day!

I'm saddened to hear of Connie's passing.  I will always remember her as awesomely smart and kind, gracious, gentle and sweet.  My condolences to her family and friends, who I know will miss her deeply.

I was deeply saddened to hear of Drew’s passing.  I first met Drew as an 8th grader at John Muir Junior High School.  Drew was one of the smartest, most insightful and funniest guys I’ve ever known.  I only touched base with Drew twice at high school reunions after leaving Pacific HS, but he was frequently in my thoughts, since he was such a big part of my formative, 1960s’ years. 

Some pundit once noted that if you remember the 60’s, you weren’t there.  :)  However, I do remember them … mostly fondly! And I experienced several “firsts” with Drew (at least “firsts” for me) - along with a merry band of other San Leandro pranksters, including Gary Wilcoxen and Bruce Kane – at several iconic locations, like the Panhandle in Golden Gate Park and Pomponio Beach.  In looking back, there was an occasion where Drew commented on my behavior, with his typical wit, that had a profound (and positive) impact on my life’s course.   

And how cool that Drew and Charlotte found each other later in life, especially when I think back on how our lives crossed from 2nd grade at Garfield Elementary through Pacific High School.  

And yes: I remember the Mysterians and the Fellowship of the Ring.  Below is a picture of Drew and Tom Brody, I think as rehearsing as part the Fellowhip of the Ring in Drew's garage (courtesy of Tom's Yelp review of John Muir Junior High School).

So, while there's sadness when I think of Drew's passing, thinking him also brings a smile as I remember our friendship and adventures at very interesting time.

My deepest condolences to Charlotte and his family. My thoughts are with you in this sad time.

Happy B-Day, Mike! And yes: I drive by "that" spot on Hwy 101 outside of San Miguel quite often (in fact, I just drove past there this evening on my way back from a consulting assignment in Oakland). Whenever I go past, I always think of our adventure (or rather, misadventure!) with Pat (quite the choir master, I understand!) you and me ... in fact, with great fondness for y'all. And yes: I've shared this with my children ... but long after they became adults and were past being influenced by it. :)

On the other hand, even without this as "adventure" as a point of reference, both my "children" (James, who is now 35 and my daughter Sate, 32) found plenty of adolescent misadventures all on their own. :)

Again, wishing you the coolest of birthdays: have fun (but don't blow-up any car engines doing it!).
