What's happening chez Bendik Keymer in 2008

Posted By David K. Keymer, Monday, September 8, 2008
Jan.-May: Filled in as an asst. vice chancellor at the local University of California (in Merced). July: Son Jeremy moved back to States from Sharjah (next door to Dubai) in the UAE, where he was teaching philosophy at the American Univ. of Sharjah. He is now teaching at LeMoyne College in Syracuse, NY, so we will be visiting the East frequently in the future. Aug.-Sept.: Visited Jeremy in his new home, an 80+ year old house --sunny, big, lots of work to do-- in Syracuse. A short trip to NYC gave me time to visit my favorite bookstore, the Strand ('18 Miles of Books'). Weight restriction limited my book buying to 10. Sept.: Will be attending the class of '60 annual reunion at Oglebay Resort in Wheeling, WV. Nora Sue Allen Cronin, who organizes these events, deserves a special medal of honor. It looks like my college quartet, the Hi-Blenders, will reunite for the 1st time in 50 years --John Coldiron, tenor; me, lead; Kirby Miller, baritone; Hooty Sturdy, bass. Nov.: Appearing in Friedrich Durrenmatt's play, The Physicists. I play a mad man who says he's Isaac Newton (I wear a late 17th-century long wig) but really thinks he's Albert Einstein but actually is a spy for the West who is spying on an another madman who has come up with a revolutionary formula for atomic energy. Lunt and Fontaine appeared in the play when it opened on Broadway in 1961. Feb. 09: I'm slated to play Lear in a production of King Lear. This will be my 2d S'speare role and the 2d great role in S'speare for older men. I'm psyched!

By the Center...Quick March!

Posted By Joseph Gaither, Monday, June 30, 2008
Hiram Alum '07, Joe Gaither was chosen to lead over 500 pipers and drummers as Head Drum Major (as seen here in the photo) at the Ohio Scottish Games on Saturday, June 28 2008. This is the largest gathering of pipers and drummers in the state. This year, twenty two bands from across North America, including, New York, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Virginia, and Canada were in attendance. Joe also a judged the Eastern United States Pipe Band Association (EUSPBA) competition in Dress and Deportment. Bands were judged on how well they properly wore their uniforms and how they marched. When asked, "how did you first get involved with drum majoring", Joe answered, "I wanted to tryout for drum major in my 8th grade band and received lessons from Robert Kennedy, a professional drum major. I then started competing in amateur drum major competitions across Florida. Before long, I was placing 1st in my division at each Highland Games I entered and was forced to move up to the professional division. Within the first year, I was winning 1st place. I then started traveling across the US and then went International. It was a real honor to compete in Scotland where this art first began. After placing in the top ten in Scotland and Ireland, when I returned to the states I applied to be a judge. After completing a rigorous committee review and demonstrative exam, I was awarded into the judge circuit for the Southern United States Pipe Band Association (SUSPBA). Joe not only led the over five hundred musicians on the field that day, but he organized the whole opening and closing ceremonies. "One of my favorite things is planning and organizing" Joe says, which he had done numerous times while at Hiram in his student organizations such as the Kennedy Center Programming Board (KCPB) and Student Senate.

hey! where the heck is everybody?!

Posted By arnold hayes, Sunday, June 8, 2008
hey! where the heck is everybody?! i have been perplexed for several years about the lack of classnotes for the class of 1986 in the alumni magazine. i went to school with people who became lawyers, doctors, community activists, trustees, extortionists, and other cool stuff, but i never see anything about that! either the entire class of 1986 went into the witness protection program or i'm the only one with anything even remotely interesting to say. and that i highly doubt.
 
for example, this year i participated in the parisian equivalent of pamplona's running of the bulls... the punting of the petulant poodles. the joy to be had by gently punting pouty poodles under the arc de capitulation was a moment i will not soon forget...wait, what was i talking about?
 
anywho, this goes for the classes of 1985 and 1987, as well. c'mon, folks, you can't tell me that the highlight of your life was throwing up after drinking some repugnant combination of boone's farm strawberry wine and cat urine while joining a fraternity or sorority and that everything since then has been anti-climactic? hasn't somebody done something...earned a doctorate from a prestigious university, become an internationally famous jewel thief, invented the internet, wrote a thick book about something that nobody understands but that got you a mention in "who's who in otherwise mundane american lives"?
 
what have i done? aside from the whole poodle thing, i've worked at the same company since two weeks after graduating from hiram, i'm married to karen donley-hayes, we live in garrettsville, the monaco of portage county and we have ten cats named after hiram college buildings, vegetables and other flighty thoughts. i manage to keep in touch with hardly anybody because i'm too damn lazy, but i hope this whole website/internet thing will change that.
 
i would post a picture of myself, but the best one i have is when i was five years old, wore coveralls and had a head shaped like a lima bean. suffice to say, it is no longer shaped like a lima bean, but more like one of those radishes that people cut into fancy flower shapes so eating a radish is now more of an artistic experience.
 
okay, classes of 1985-1987...i've bared my soul. now it's your turn.
