Bill Arthur ’57: Exemplar of Service to Others

Photo by Barry Adams,
Wisconsin State Journal
EHS alumnus Bill Arthur is a very active volunteer in his retirement. The Wisconsin State Journal ran a profile of him in their “Know Your Madisonian” column.  He jokes, “When I was working I had Saturdays and Sundays off. Nowadays that’s when I’m out taking pictures (as a volunteer) and doing other volunteer work.”

In addition to continuing to pursue an interest in nature photography he first discovered while attending UW-Madison, he regularly takes photos of events at the Arboretum. Bill volunteers almost daily at one of many different service agencies is also the president of the board of Community Services Center Inc., a collaboration of four local organizations.

Basketball Alums Share Holiday Cheer

On Saturday December 26, the annual basketball gathering for men and women of all ages who played on Crusader teams was held. Attendees had fun on the court, on the sidelines and at The Laurel. Hope those of you who participated will be back next year — and bring along a classmate to join in the fun!

Basketball alums gathering today

Saturday, December 26
Join us for Christmas cheer(ing),
on the courts,
in the bleachers,
and at The Laurel!

Holiday greetings to all EHS Basketball Alums! It’s time once again to reconnect with your fellow teammates and maybe work off a few of those extra seasonal calories.

Women players will be hitting the court for a friendly round robin competition beginning at 2:00 p.m. Let us place you on a team or just show up to cheer on the players!

Men players will start their tourney at 4:00 p.m. The cost of the afternoon for men is $30, which includes the after-game celebration at The Laurel and a donation to the E Club.

Whether participating in the day’s tourneys, watching from the sidelines, or just looking to meet with classmates this afternoon, EHS alums are invited to meet at The Laurel Tavern afterwards for reminiscing, boasting about the day’s lay-ups and free throws (or in some cases, commiserating about aches and pains!), and catching up on one another’s lives. The after-tourney party is co-sponsored by the E Club and the Edgewood High School Alumni Association.

Whitney first became involved in Habitat for Humanity when she volunteered for 4 months on a Dane County build site after graduating in 2010 from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota, with a double BA degree in finance and economics. Since then she has taken an active role in the growth and promotion of Dane County HYP, including holding several elected positions before becoming chair of the group’s Board of Directors.

Mike O’Malley ’70 helps those with brain injuries

The UW Health site recently posted a story about a newly trained group of volunteers, including EHS alumnus Mike O’Malley. He is among those who are now working with patients recovering from strokes and other brain injuries and in need of rebuilding their lives as they relearn daily tasks and regain cognitive and neuromotor functions.

UW Health Brain Injury Peer Visitor volunteers: Steve Mintz, Neurosciences case manager Jodi Atwell, volunteer Michael O'Malley, peer visitor founder Ann Boriske, and volunteer Rodney Noll
UW Health Brain Injury Peer Visitor volunteers: Steve Mintz, Neurosciences case manager Jodi Atwell, volunteer Michael O'Malley, peer visitor founder Ann Boriske, and volunteer Rodney Noll

During the two-day training, Mike and his fellow volunteers learned how to make visits and fill out paperwork and practiced visiting patients under supervision. When they make their official visits, they'll wear the association's blue vest and hand out information from the American Stroke Association, as well as resource lists, websites, helpful books and news articles and information on local support groups such as Fresh Start.

Link to the full story above to read more about how the program was started and the services it provides.

Austin Arians back on the court

You did it! MT has his chair!

Thanks go to all of you who participated in Edgewood High School’s first Giving Tuesday fundraising event. Your generous contributions meant that we were able to dedicate a chair to Mark Thering for his 40+ years as an art teacher and set construction chief.

We surprised Mark today with the gift in his honor, along with the names of all those who contributed.

MT takes his seat of honor with an enlarged version of the brass plaque that will be affixed to the seat. (The chair immediately in front of his belongs to PH!)

Joe Curtin ’09 quickly finding success with Bust A Move slo-mo video

The Wisconsin State Journal for November 28 ran a feature story on one of the latest party must-haves, now co-owned by Joe Curtin after he and his UW-La Crosse roommates helped a bride plan for an interactive wedding reception. Called Bust A Move, the company films partygoers dancing or just having fun with props and costumes. The camera crew projects the footage in slow motion on television screens at the event and then later sets the video to music for a keepsake of the event. 

According to the company’s Yelp profile, “Forget the photo booths you’ve seen. This is completely different and much better. We provide a backdrop, professional lighting, music (we take requests all night long)…live social media coverage, and final productions using the best and most hilarious scenes from the whole night. All you need to do is Bust A Move.

Joe says, “My favorite part of this job is seeing people’s reactions when they watch on the TV. It makes me smile and laugh every time knowing that they’re having so much fun. That’s what we’re all about, because that’s what life is all about: sharing fun moments with friends and family.”

A batch of more sample images are posted on the Yelp site, and also at Bust A Move’s Instagram site and Facebook page.

Bust A Move is only a part of a much larger venture, Chromatic Media Group (CMG), which the guys hope to grow into a large video production house. For more info on the big picture, visit the CMG website.

Even Mr. Waters is bustin' moves!

One great guy, one small gift, one big surprise!

Art Teacher Mark Thering
Even if you never participated as a student in Edgewood High School theatre productions, you’ve likely had a class with art teacher Mark Thering. Or maybe you’re the parent of an alum or current student and appreciate the difference Mark has made in your child’s life by recognizing and nurturing artistic talents, providing guidance in yearbook creation, or helping build self-confidence by delegating responsibility for getting a set finished.

On “Giving Tuesday,” December 1, 2015 we’d like to surprise Mark with a seat in the Sr. Kathleen O’Connell Auditorium, recognizing his unassuming dedication for the past 41 years to the students of Edgewood and his award-winning work on set construction and design. Since 1986, Mark has entered EHS sets into the national ScenoGraphics competition and has brought home 21 awards.

Dedicating an auditorium seat with a commemorative plaque is $1,000, and if enough of us contribute just $10, $20 or more, we can fund this special gift for a terrific man. Please follow this link to the Edgewood High School “Make a Donation” page. Scroll to the bottom and click on the “Donate” button for “specify an amount for another purpose.” If you use Paypal, incude Thering Auditorium seat in the comments box. If you pay by credit card, any gifts received on December 1 will be credited to the purchase of the seat. Any funds over $1,000 will be contributed to ENCORE, the fund that helps support Edgewood’s programs in music, theatre, art and creative writing.

Thank you for helping celebrate the accomplishments and many kindnesses toward students and parents shown by Mark Thering over more than four decades at Edgewood.
Please share this message with friends and family so we can achieve our goal (but don’t tell Mark!).

Amanda Arnold is a Top Notch Teacher!

Amanda teaches 1st grade at John Muir Elementary School in Madison. She laughs, “It's energetic, it's fun it's crazy, it's controlled chaos.” Amanda continues, “I had a very privileged life when I was little and I was very fortunate for that and I always wanted to get to the kids that maybe weren't as lucky to have that and I wanted to make sure that I could give that to kids.”

Amanda has a master’s degree in experiential education and brings skills and exercises she learned as an undergrad at UW-Madison minoring in theatre and drama to the classroom as teaching and learning tools with plenty of song, dance and games.

Edgewood Quarterback is National Guard Week 8 Player of the Week Nominee

Jack Dunn, who is playing quarterback for Edgewood High School this fall, turned in a record-setting game last week. Stats of 37 carries for 363 yards and 7 touchdowns is incredibly impressive for any player. For a quarterback to do it is unprecedented. In a 48-39 victory over Fort Atkinson that kept the team's playoff hopes alive, that performance turned in by Jack sets a new state record for most rushing yards in a single game by a quarterback, and his 7 touchdowns ties a state record for any player.

Jack was narrowly edged out of the fan vote-based selection for Player of the Week by Seth Wilson of Holmen.

Jack and his brother, EHS alumnus Robert Dunn ’14

I'll Try Jeopardy! Competitors from Madison WI for $1000, Alex!

An EHS Trivia Salute to Letterman

Perhaps one of the most famous entrances of any guest on the Late Show with David Letterman was the cartwheel by EHS alumnus Chris Farley ’82! However, Chris was not the only Edgewood graduate ever to appear on the show with former host David Letterman. Can you pick who among the following was also a guest?

1. John Tefft ’67 – US Ambassador to Russia
​2. Mary Ann Thurber ’73 – Madison Police Officer
3. Adam Burish ’01 – NHL Player & Stanley Cup winner

Madison Police Officer Mary Ann Thurber ’73 appeared on the show in 1985. Facebook or members can view the episode. Mary Ann would write up her reports for less-significant calls in poetry (the most famous one about a porta potty, “Bucky Latrine”). Letterman had Mary Ann appear in full uniform and she gave Letterman a run for his money when he made comments like, “I don’t suppose anyone has ever told you how good you make a police uniform look.”

According to another anecdote about Mary Ann, she was working with the vice unit on King Street in Madison as an undercover “lady of the night.” When a man approached her and offered her $5 for her services, she chased him away and refused to write him up because she didn’t want to have to admit the low dollar amount!

When Mary Ann received the Edgewood High School Dominican Award for Service to Humanity in 2007, she was honored both for her (then) 29 years of work on the Madison police force and for her volunteer work with Luke House, Walden Homes, Radio Reading Service for the Blind and the Rape Crisis Center. She joked about having to give acceptance remarks that she’d be more comfortable talking to the assembled audience if they’d “please stand up, turn around and put your hands on your heads.” Mary Ann’s retirement in 2012 was covered in a profile piece by the Wisconsin State Journal.


The Chicago Blackhawks selected Adam Burish in the 2002 NHL draft and he appeared in 169 games for them over three-plus seasons. After helping the Hawks win the Stanley Cup in 2010, the team’s first in 49 years, Burish didn’t appear on the Letterman Show, but teammate and playoff MVP Patrick Kane did, along with the Cup. Adam went to the Dallas Stars in 2010 and the San Jose Sharks in 2012, and the Chicago Tribune ran a story in July about Adam’s future plans.

Though highly accomplished in the field of international politics, with previous service in the State Department and ambassadorial appointments by U.S. Presidents from Bill Clinton to George W. Bush to Barack Obama in Lithuania, Georgia, Ukraine and now Russia, John Tefft was never invited to appear with the quirky talk show host.

Class of 1950 Shares Memories at Reunion

Members of the Class of 1950 celebrated their 65th Anniversary Reunion at a midday gathering held at the Radisson in Madison on August 29, 2015.

1950 was the start of the fast changes that would be seen in the coming decades as the Cold War came and went and technology became a dominant force worldwide. The Great Depression was becoming a faint memory while hearts were still broken over those lost during World War II. The median family income was $3,300 a year, the average cost of a new house was $8,450 and a gallon of gas was just 18 cents, 
and milk was still delivered to the doorstep. Disney released a new animated film, Cinderella, while the movie version of the Broadway hit musical, Annie Get Your Gun, kept audiences laughing.

Statz Families Host a Party for about 45,000 Friends, Neighbors and Total Strangers: Farm Technology Days

Richard and Veronica Statz and Donnie and Shirley (Krantz ’60) Statz were the 2015 hosts of Dane County Farm Technology Days, August 25-27, at the Statz Brothers Farm near Sun Prairie. More than just a third-generation “farm” the Statz Brothers operation is a technological marvel where about 3,850 cows are maintained and milked in a dou­ble-50 milk­ing par­lor and 6,300 acres of crops. Visi­tors were able to tour the farm in buses that drove around the fa­cil­i­ties and through one of the 640-foot-long free-stall barns. In addition to showing off their impressive host site dairy farm, the event is an opportunity to view equipment, learn about research and practical innovations occurring in agriculture, and visit exhibits by more than 600 commercial and educational vendors.

And of course, since the entire event is like a high-tech county fair (minus the rides and carnival games) there was food to feed the tens of thousands of guests: Angus beef hamburgers and cheeseburgers, brats and hot dogs, baked potatoes, egg and sausage breakfast sandwiches, freshly-made pizza, salads, cheese curds, ice cream and more.

The last time Dane County hosted Farm Tech­nol­ogy Days was in 1986, when the event was still known as Wis­con­sin Farm Progress Days.

For more stories about the Statz family and Farm Technology Days, visit the Wisconsin State Journal, the News links off the Farm Technology Days site, or get an inside look from the family’s FTD event Facebook page.

Class of ’63 Members Celebrate Their (Can you believe it?) 70th Birthday!

Returning to the site of their 50th anniversary reunion, members of the class of 1963 enjoyed catching up with one another at the Madison Curling Club on August 15. In between chatting and nibbling on a buffet of hors d’oeuvres with beverages, someone had the foresight to get everyone to pose for a group photo to record the special event! Happy 70th to one and all!
