    Thanks for posting the article. I imagine how thrilled those former Stude employees were to be back in the building where they were empoyed so many years ago.

      Thanks. Neat to see. Been outside of the building many times but had never seen any of the inside.

        I saved that paper when it came on Sunday. I'm the guy standing behind Lou looking out the window. First time I ever made it on the front page of the paper!

          i thought that was you in the pic, Chris.

          i really hope a video will be produced for us far away that can't make it.

          BTW: thanks for the bricks from the engineering building! i just rec'd them late last week. a "postal carrier" left them at a neighbor's house that had been out of town for awhile...

            I`d be running around with a metal detector checking if there`s any loot buried around the place . . .
