HI everyone ! I was sad to read about my old friend Bill Tideback. Funny how I can remember exact conversations with him after all these eons. Anyway, I live on the island of Lanai where my wife Sharie and I are the mental health providers for the whole population of 3000 or so. We love it here even though we are very busy and isolated, hence I won't be at the reunion. I got a call from Jim Ranshaw out of the blue and that got me thinking about Burbank Hi and I found the webpage. So, aloha to everybody and feel free to email me anytime with news of the folks. I haven't been back to Burbank in decades so I'm sure lots have happened, unlike here. The arrival of our baby goat made the newspaper...with a photo! Love, Greg Sanders

Dr. Greg Sanders, Lanai High Behavioral Health Specialist serves as one of the drawing and painting mentors. He is currently teaching oil painting to four students meet him after school several days per week.
“We like Dr. Greg because he tells us jokes, but he never laughs at his own jokes,” said one of Sander’s mentees who didn’t want to give his name. “Oh and he’s also a good painter himself. Oh, and he’s always on time and is always there, no matter what. And he likes the pictures we paint.”
The newest mentor is Frank Walls, a graphic designer who moved with his family from Cleveland for his wife to teach math at the high school. Walls teachers drawing and design one day a week at the Lanai Public Library. He is trying to recruit high school students, but for now his mentees are middle school students.

If you would like to contact Greg, contact Jim Ranshaw.
