March 10, 2006
Still cleaning and filing. Hung up the first framed cover of Razz Revue, the humor magazine Dan Harshberger and I produced (1972-1976). We put out sixteen issues and I’ll hang the rest this weekend (this is a homework assignment from Darcy) Hard for some to believe, but I’ve been in the publishing business for a long time.

One Of The Exits, Exits
"It is with a very sad heart today the I am informing you of another death among our class. Mickey Campa just called me to say that Wendell Havatone passed away this morning [actually, yesterday] of a heart attack. As with all of the others that have already left us, I know that Wendell will be missed too. I do not know anything other than this but as I get info, I will pass it on to you."
—Phyllis E., Mohave County Union High School Classmate

Wendell sang lead in the Exits, our first band. He was a talented, handsome Hualapai who the girls always went crazy for at our gigs.

From yesterday's Santa Fe New Mexican, announcing the latest movies scheduled to be filmed in the state:

Wanted: Undead or Alive
"This is a good old cowboys ‘n’ zombies flick. In the synopsis provided by the Fourth Floor, “When Wild West misfits Elmer Winslow and Luke Budd rob the corrupt sheriff of a dusty Western town, they have no idea a plague of zombies is sweeping the country. In a bizarre turn of events, Geronimo’s sultry niece may hold the key to their survival.” According to the horror-movie Web site Bloody-Disgusting . com, this will be a comedy. The dusty Western town will be played by Bonanza Creek Ranch south of Santa Fe."
