Bad History on TC Site
A so-called "History of TC" on the city's website contains several half truths that should be corrected. The document, which has circulated on many venues for years, has become an embarrassment, but it just won't go away. (See the link below.) I recently wrote to the City Clerk and Council including the following (slightly revised here).

Assn. to Compile Comprehensive List of Alumni
Because TCHS has no comprehensive list of former students, TCHS Alumni News is attempting to compile one. Round One is to ask for volunteers who will carefully type the names from each class yearbook — including "camera-shy" and otherwise unlisted students into a spreadsheet and send them to the editors. If you can help, you will be doing fellow alumni a great service.

Medicare: Avoid this genetic testing scam
I thought this notice from Medicare was worth sharing, as many of our members are "of age."

Have you heard about the latest scam? Scammers are offering “free” genetic tests and claiming Medicare will cover it — so they can get your Medicare Number and use it to commit fraud and identity theft. They’re targeting people through telemarketing calls, health fairs, and even knocking on doors.

Only a doctor you know and trust should order and approve any requests for genetic testing. If Medicare is billed for a test or screening that wasn’t medically necessary and/or wasn’t ordered by your doctor, the claim could be denied. That means you could be responsible for the entire cost of the test, which could be thousands of dollars.

Here’s how to protect yourself:
  • Don’t share your Medicare Number, Social Security Number, or other personal information with anyone who offers to give you a "free" in-person genetic screening or cheek swab, or a DNA testing kit in the mail.
  • If you get a genetic testing kit in the mail, refuse the delivery or return to sender unless your doctor ordered it.


If you suspect Medicare fraud, call 1-800-MEDICARE.

Never let it be said...
...that the TCHS Alumni News team procrastinates. (Or if 'tis said, say the only example is the publication of the following video slideshow from seven years ago.) The Class of 1960 reunion in 2010 in Pasadena was a classy affair with classy people. That's my story and I'm sticking with it. —RC
