P.S.  I will try to get an updated list of alumni the one on this site is 4 years old and I have gotten some 2000 new names over the last 4 years....
Special note::the email address in the Alumni note (when you click on the Alumni list in the Menu), is wrong... it is

2011-11-08 14:04 - Looking for films from the 1980's Help !
Posted by RonDubinmore from same (Monarch News)
Monarch NewsA journalist based in New York is working on an ESPN Films documentary about 1980s Chicago basketball star Ben Wilson.  Wilson went to Simeon H.S. and was tragically killed in November 1984 the day before his senior season began; the outpouring of grief city-wide was unprecedented.  Here is were we can help because many of Wilson's friends told us in interviews about how they used to go to Mendel for parties and dances in the early 1980s.  And according to them, these events were filmed.  I would love to find this somehow, and I figured that the Mendel Alumni Association might be able to help.  Anyone out there know about the filming and where we can find them?
Let me know... email me at    rondmendel63@hotmail.com

2011-05-22 16:14 - New Liver
Posted by brucebmore from same (Monarch News)
Monarch NewsFinally after suffering for over 3 years I got a new liver at Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, AZ on April 12, 2011 at 230pm.  The procedure was the 3rd domino transplant ever done at Mayo Clinic.  My transplant overall number was 585 at Mayo Clinic in Phoenix.  I am healing up now and feel better every day.  The doctors said they are amazed how well I am doing.  I should be back to normal in about 9 months.  I plan to head back to Chicago after I heal up and get the doctors ok.  Looking forward to going to the next reunion and teaching some of you guys how to play golf.  Handicaps are applied.
