On A Personal Note

LAST WEEK WE REPORTED THAT RETIRED OCC STAFF MEMBER, Jean Collins, and her husband, Arthur Hyatt, died when hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast. Their home was in Pass Christian, Miss. Jean and Arthur were the only two people in Pass Christian to remain with their home during the hurricane. Every home in their neighborhood was leveled to its concrete slab. Jean spent many years on OCC’s staff, first working in the bookstore and then serving as a course assistant. Jean married Arthur, a native of the Gulf Coast, a number of years ago. She’d been raised in New Orleans, and looked forward to retiring near the place of her birth. Condolences to her children and grandchildren. NFL SIDE JUDGE 125, OCC’S VERY OWN LAIRD HAYES, will officiate the Buffalo-New Orleans football game this Sunday, Oct. 2. The game will be played in San Antonio. Kickoff is set for 10 a.m. PDT.
