Comments Page

Spurred by my need to let my children know who I was, who I am, and who I will continue to be, I put these pages together as closely as I can remember to the actual events. It is true - not everything is here. The reason? First, that would be a huge amount of content to manage. Second, some things don't need to be there. And third, of course, there is plenty that I have trouble remembering at all. I think I did pretty good getting this bit of history down.

reverse phone lookup
A census is the system of systematically buying and recording suggestions about the individuals of a given population.The term is used mostly in reference to national inhabitants and housing censuses; other common censuses come with agriculture, business, and traffic censuses.The United Nations defines the vital features of population and housing censuses as "particular person enumeration, universality within an outlined territory, simultaneity and described periodicity", and recommends that population censuses be taken at the least every 10 years.United Nations strategies also cover census topics to be accumulated, respectable definitions, classifications and other useful suggestions to co ordinate overseas observe.The word is of Latin origin: during the Roman Republic, the census was a list that kept track of all males fit for army provider.The modern census is a must-have to international comparisons of any variety of records, and censuses assemble data on many attributes of a population, not just what number of people there are.Censuses usually began as the only approach to collecting national demographic data, and are now part of a bigger system of different surveys.Although population estimates remain an important characteristic of a census, including precisely the geographic distribution of the population, facts can be produced about combos of attributes e.g.schooling by age and sex in different regions.Current administrative data techniques allow for other strategies to enumeration with a similar level of detail but raise concerns about privacy and the chance of biasing estimates.A census can be contrasted with sampling in which advice is obtained only from a subset of a population; usually main inhabitants estimates are up-to-date by such intercensal estimates.Modern census data are commonly used for research, enterprise advertising and marketing, and making plans, and as a baseline for designing sample surveys by offering a sampling frame akin to an address sign in.Census counts are necessary to regulate samples to be representative of a population by weighting them as is common in opinion polling.Similarly, stratification requires knowledge of the relative sizes of alternative population strata which may be derived from census enumerations.In some countries, the census provides the respectable counts used to apportion the number of elected representatives to regions every now and then controversially – e.g., Utah v.Evans.In many cases, a gently chosen random sample can give more accurate guidance than attempts to get a inhabitants census.A census is always construed as the contrary of a sample as its intent is to count all and sundry in a population in place of a fraction.However, inhabitants censuses depend upon a sampling frame to count the inhabitants.This is the one way to make sure that each person has been blanketed as in a different way those not responding would not be followed up on and people can be missed.The fundamental premise of a census is that the population is not known and a new estimate is to be made by the analysis of basic data

Ruben Griffin/Kwame
Hi Mike--

I wonder if you have any info about what might have happened to your vocalist in Field of Zaad, Ruben Griffin aka Kwame. He sang with a band I co-founded in San Francisco, called This Ole World, in 1969. He did some recording with me here in 1972 and maybe into 1973, but then I lost track of him. Very good singer!! Another old friend of his, Bill McCumber from Little Rock, would also like to know. Thanks for any info you might have!

Thanks for your response, Billy. I did see old friends Joy A. and Doug S. during a visit to Sierra Vista last summer, and got caught up on who is where. Sad to lose Curt and Ronnie and many others; glad to know Eric is still around. Leaving the Bay Area and heading back to SV brings home so many memories of great people!

Mike can\\\'t believe there\\\'s a little buzz going on about the Vetro & Barry Richards days. As I recall we brought you in to replace Yale Beebee. Have to agree about James B. He was a handful.
#38 - Vic Velasquez - 06/11/2012 - 09:49
Did I read #27 correctly...did Kurt, Ronnie and Eric all pass away??? Please tell me I read that wrong. I am heartbroken. These were the guys that turned me on to Jeff Beck and other great guitar/vocals when I was in High School in Sierra Vista,1970-1972. I remember Pal Joey, Macon Bacon and Flog'N the Dogs. Can't be true...

Hey Steve Watkins, don't forget "The Talismen", or was it "The Talisman"? With David Davis and McGee. Good to hear you are still playing base, especially with one of the Rodriguez brothers.
#30 - Jim Doctor - 03/15/2011 - 15:44
Wow, what can you say about the talent back then.. Ronnie Call, Buddy Dent, Larry Franks....got the opportunity to play with Ronnie again in 2001 at the reunion in SV....still remember doing harmonies in Buddy's dads milk truck camper in 1968 out on Charleston Rd. with Buddy and Ronnie. Whew... sang the Bee Gee's "To Love Somebody" until 3:00 AM.

Mike finally found me. Great to hear from you and see the musical journey you've been on. Sorry to hear about Greg. He went on with JOU (Jive of us?) and I was very envious, but hey, Brett was the man in SV.
Steve, I'd like to hear from you and see if you have a contact for Dave S.

That is Max's birth last name...
How do you like that..
I never knew him other than Max Mesa
He just now is getting into computers and
got one so I told him I would get him connected up with you...
#22 - Steve - 02/12/2010 - 00:21
VIPs - Wow!
The VIPs. That's a name from the past I'd forgotten.

I can only remember one Max at this time that I played with. Was it with the VIPs? Not sure.

I thought that Max's last name was Saldoa, or something like that. I used to think it was Ontoa. I never saw it written down, so not sure. This Max was a good guitar player, did the best Louie Louie guitar solo around at that time - and have never heard a better one since. Funny how the memories sit with you. I don't remember doing any gigs, just a bunch of jamming with him.

The VIPs I remember did a talent show at Buena High while we were still at Carmichael Jr High, I think. Members I remember were Victor Rivera on drums, Ricardo Morales and Art Mendoza (?). Ask Max if any of these guys were present in the gig he remembers.

We're talking 45-46 years ago. Sheesh. Where did the time go.

Thanks Steve.

Curt & I sang the Beatles...
"I'm A Loser" was one of our favorites. I'd forgotten. Another was "I'll Follow The Sun". I remember doing harmonies at 13-14 years old felt pretty cool. Curt had a nice voice for the style of music.

I'm not remembering Max Mesa at this point. I still need to pull my yearbooks out (7th, 8th, 9th grades).

Nice chatting with you.
#19 - Michael Workman - 02/03/2010 - 10:12
Hello Mike,
I don't believe we ever met but the people are the same that new us. I talked with one of the guitar players I am working with, Max Mesa, and he told me the same story of you and Curt going over to his house and playing alot of beatles music...He recalled one that he really liked the harmonies on...I'm a loser, pluse mentioned Rock and Roll Music Beatles/ Chuck Berry....
We are in Tucson if you ever come to town..
#18 - Stevan Watkins - 01/30/2010 - 08:53
I hear you, Steve
I probably don't post enough here. I don't get many posts from others, but should respond.

I don't remember you - if I knew you. Glad that I helped hook people up again. I set out to find all the musicians that I used to play with, and have been very successful. But from Sierra Vista, I haven't contacted anyone I played with. I did find out about Greg Clements & Kurt Sample (both RIP). I looked for Jimmy Hilburn, who I thought was a fine drummer in spite of his handicap (found evidence of his sister, but she never responded). And, there are too many Ray Reed names that come up in searches to zero in on him.

I played lead guitar with Greg, Jimmy, and Ray in a band called the Sonics. We gigged at BHS dances, talent shows, and our biggest gig was at the Ft Huachuca Teen Club.

With Kurt (back in 8th grade - 1964-65, I used to go over to Kurt's house and play guitar while he played a Wurlitzer electric piano - one of the old white ones with the short keyboard. I loved it and played it as much as he'd let me. I played piano and could play a bunch the Beatle songs he didn't know - and he'd sing. And I really liked his voice. We did one gig together (don't remember the rest of the band) for some Fort Huachuca local TV program. One song: Rock n Roll Music (Beatles/Chuck Berr) where Kurt sang each verse, I sang each chorus. My mother loved it, anyway.

I remember jamming with Ronnie Call. Brett Leavenworth was a great drummer, but I never played with him. I knew Buddy Dent, but didn't know he ever played. I moved out of SV just before my sophomore year (1966) at BHS.

I still have a 1966 BHS yearbook someplace. I need to find it and go through it to see if any of these names I don't remember go with faces I do remember...

Who would have thunk,
At this age I am practicing with a couple of musicians from the old days in Sierra Vista.
Max Mesa, and George Rodriquez,.we have already played a benefit dance but still have a lot of work to do to get our chops back. Got in touch with Michael Bronner who gave a holler to Randy Brauer for me...mentioned to get together for some shop talk along with Brett Leavenworth. Any way some of the connection all started from here.

"Did pretty good" are you kidding? I can't remember what I ate yesterday! Have you been keeping a diary? I can't remember having played with you, I was hoping you would remember me, but you do remember partying too much, maybe that was it! If you find Julie let me know. The last time I saw her was in Alaska in '89. She stayed there, maybe she's still there. She sent me a picture of a fish she caught, it must have been over five feet long! I still have the picture.

Hi Mike. I worked with Barry Richards 78-80. We played over a year 6 nights a week at Daphnes at the Sheraton Riverhouse. Vic Velasquez, Harold Lindsey and Ben Caputo were also in the group. Do you know the whereabouts of Barry or any of the others? Thanks. Tom.

Greg Clements
Dear Mike,
I played lead guitar in a band from Sierra Vista called JOU which was earlier called Joy, with Peter Stockton, Ronnie Call, Harold Dibble and Randy Brauer. Greg Clements also played in the band and we were housemates for a time in 1972/3. Along with others including Eric Nelli, Kurt Sample, Brett Leavenworth and Steve Smith. It was an amazingly wonderful time for me especially in that I was the only non-Sierra Vistan. I'm from Chicago and recently moved back to Tucson. Randy is still here as is Brett and we intend to get together to play. The sad news is that both Greg and Kurt apparently committed suicide. I don't remember the Sonics, but it could very well be that my memory is starting to fade a bit. In any case, it was nice to hear someone say some nice things about Greg. He and I became good friends over the years. I created a JOU website which you can check out if you like. It's still a work in progress, and I understand that there is the original 45 floating around, that I will add to the site as it becomes available. Sincerely, Michael Bronner

Hi Mike Workman-gosh it has been a long time and thanks to TC, I received the pics I took of that crazy but dedicated crew way back yonder of crackers and messiah. For your kids, YES, you were a definite clown and glad to hear that you remain so!! I also have remained true to my calling in art and have been succesful (as art can be) and live now in St, Croix, USVI and love it!

Much appreciation for what you did and so fun to see the oldies again.. Thanks much for putting it online.
