Fighter Jet Sighted Over Arlington Heights While Responding to American Airlines Call for Help
OCT 8 2001, 3:15 pm CDT -- A witness in Arlington Heights Monday, Illinois saw one of the presumed Air Force Fighter Jets descend very rapidly from north to south over southern Arlington Heights (over the Scarsdale subdivision) and make a very sharp left turn toward O'Hare at a low altitude. The jet was observed descending rapidly within seconds after two sonic booms were heard. The Scarsdale subdivision is within six miles of O'Hare.

Two F-16's escorted the O'Hare approach of American Airlines Flight 1238 from Los Angeles to Chicago after a distress call was made by the crew reporting an intrusion into the cockpit. The intruder, later reported to have a history of mental illness, grabbed one of the crew members in the cockpit and caused the plane to tremor. Many passengers immediately rushed the intruder and pinned him down until the plane landed.

Class of '76 Reunion is a Big Hit

SEPT 05 2001 -- Judging from the response on the floor the night of the reunion and from e-mails received so far, the 25-Year Reunion from the Class of 1976 is a rousing success. Over 220 classmates and teachers arrived to find Arlington High School decked out as well as any pep rally that occurred in its days of glory. All the attention to details sweetened the night for old friends as they met again in the red brick building -- Arlington High School.

The following letter from former Arlington teacher Wayne Wagner sums up the feelings of teachers quite well:

Dear Class of '76,

It was a hoot!!! I loved your reunion!!! Thanks so much for inviting me. It was great to see you again and to reminisce about good times at the home of the Cardinal. It was especially good to do so at the Cardinal's home!

My congratulations to those of you who obviously labored very hard and very long to put the event together. As an English teacher who enjoys corrupting the language I say to you, "You done good."

My special thanks to those of you who took the time to stop by and say "Hi" to me. It made me feel good that you remembered me. My deepest thanks go to those of you who said a kind thing about something I may have done for you. As I near retirement (this June) I reflect frequently on my career and wonder if I was a success, if I really made a difference in anyone's life. Several of you were very generous in saying that I did. For that I am very grateful.

Again, thanks for the invite. It was my great pleasure to be there. You all seem to have done very well over the last 25 years, and I wish you well in the future.

Best wishes,

Wayne H. Wagner
