Sagunto Star v2 pages 1 and 2

This is the second issue of the original Sagunto Star. On the front you will see the very young Richard and Geoffrey Cabras. They are all grown now, as you can see in the photos submitted earlier of the Cabras Family.

Evs brought up an interesting question for these issues of the original Sagunto Star. So please answer in the comments section of this post:

    So we know what Geoffrey and Richard were doing. What were the rest of us doing when this issue of Sagunto Star was issued?

    Summer of 1984……
    Where was I? I was in my second year in college. Had a boyfriend. Was hanging out with friends and also working in a lab at the same time. I think it is in December of this year that we go home to Sagunto for the first time since we left in 1976.

    Hey Fellow Saguntonians and friends we can see that the lesson in the Paper is still applicable at this time even the health tips being written.
    June 1984 I just finished my 1 year Internship in Agoo UCCP then back to Laoag to finish my ABTheo and July I just started my weekend church works @ Bacarra UCCP Ilocos Norte.muzta da ngatan dagidiay church members that is 24 years back well adu ngatan ti pimmusayen ta as usual nataengen ti active members.

    OK, pag balik ni Babot, chika2 uli tayo by email. I’m doing a lot of weeding in the garden. The grass grows faster than my beans and corn.

    What was I doing that time? That was my second yr of teaching…and naturally like any other spinster maestras, subsob sa trabaho. We couldn’t go home for a vacation anymore but thanks that our grandparents could visit us in Manila instead. Dyay Apong ko met nga Cardo, tultulungan dak nga ag- check ti formal themes ti students. Well, he said he used to teach English in NLA before the war too so I was glad I had an assistant ha ha.

    Well Paz, we miss our grandpa….prwwssst, sigh.

    I like Uncle’s article about “sowing the seeds of goodness”. It is a good reminder to us in these present days, isn’t it?

    sowing in the morning
    sowing seeds of kindness
    sowing in the noon time and
    the dewy eve
    waiting for the harvest
    and the time of reaping
    we shall come rejoicing
    bringing in the sheaves…

    what you sow is what you reap!!!
