We have some volunteers to hold a National Reunion
in Orange County, North Carolina.
Kermit Turrentine, who has long maintained the Turrentine
Cemetery, has managed to get some others to commit to helping
him. We expect this to be the largest reunion in years as there
been a big demand to have it close enough to visit the Turrentine Cemetery.

United States Army West Point sophomore running back
Trenton Turrentine collected 47 yards in the Army Air Force game this November. Army
Orange Glen High’s football team had plenty of reasons to be thankful last week. Not only did they beat longtime rival Valley Center High 42-38 on Nov. 2, the
win gave the Patriots their first home playoff game in 15 years. Savoring the
victory among themselves isn’t the team’s style, and coaches decided that the time was right for senior players
to honor teachers or staff members who’ve inspired or challenged them. At
a noontime rally Friday, about two dozen players gave teachers or staff members their away-game jerseys to wear to last night’s
playoff game against Chula Vista’s Hilltop High. Senior wide receiver Austin Cosler chose English teacher Christine Turrentine to
wear his jersey “because for the three years I’ve been here, she’s been like a mom to me.” “She’s been here (for me) no matter what,” said Austin,
16. “She’s always helped me, no matter what class. And I just really appreciated it. … It’s just something
small to give back. (Teachers) put so much time and effort.
