David Doerr, lives with his wife, Elaine, near Sacramento, CA. E-mail: dave@caltax.org. We have two children (boy and a girl) and six grandchildren. I received B.A. and M.A. degrees from San Jose State and I did additional graduate work at Cal, Berkeley.  After a two year stint (1956 - 1958) in the US Army at Ft. Lewis, WA., I taught at Campbell High for one year ('58 - '59) before I was selected among graduate students to participate in the Ford Foundation internship with the California State Legislature for 1959-60. After the internship, I thought I would go back to teach at Campbell, but was asked to stay on as a committee consultant and I stayed for 28 years as a chief consultant to the Assembly, principally to the Revenue and Taxation Committee. In that capacity, I developed most of the current tax laws on the books. I was a member of the San Juan Unified School District (suburban Sacramento) school board from 1975 through 1981. I am currently on the President's advisory board for Sacramento State University.  In 1987, I moved across the street to become Chief Tax Consultant, California Taxpayers' Association.  In this position, I do some lobbying before legislative committees on behalf of taxpayers and put out a weekly Newsletter with my colleague Ron Roach. I have also just written a book entitled "California's Tax Machine." (Aug 2002)

I have three boys plus one stepson, one daughter, nine grandchildren and one great-grandchild.  I attended San Jose State College 1950 -1952 where I met and married Tom Evans. We lived in Spartan Village through 1954 where our first two sons, Robert and Doug, were born.  After Tom’s graduation, we moved to Ventura where he taught and I was a stay-at-home mom. Our daughter, Alaire was born in 1956 and our third son, James was born in 1961.  I went back to school in 1967 and received my nursing degree in 1969. Tom and I divorced in 1968.  I began my nursing career in Ventura and then in Ojai where I was Manager/Nurse in Obstetrics/Nursery for ten years.  I met and married Marvin Ivie in 1970.  He had one son and worked for State Workman’s Compensation Insurance.  He retired in 1994.  I had resigned from my position as Nurse/Manager but continued to work in Obstetrics for another 16 years.  I retired in 1998.  I now work at a health spa 4-16 hours a week in the nursing office where I meet a lot of fun and interesting people.  We travel a lot, take lots of cruises and have traveled several times to Europe.  I always did a lot of aerobics, walking and knitting but I developed osteoporosis resulting in a hip replacement, bad back and pelvic stress fractures so I am now limited to mainly walking for exercise.  I am looking forward to a reunion.

Harold 'Buzz' Freitas, lives with his wife, Maureen, at 417 E. Pinewood Ave., Seward, NE 68434.  We have one boy, three girls and 12 grandchildren.  I lived in Los Gatos for 35 years. I owned a liquor store on Union Ave in San Jose, for 32 years.  'Served as state president of the Liquor Dealers Assoc. of California.  I worked for Smythe Buick in Santa Clara for eight years in the sales and leasing department. My future wife, Maureen, also worked in Sales in charge of inventory control when we met.  In October '97, we were married in Clarks, NE - her family lived there.  In early '98 Smythe sold their dealership and I decided to retire - and we decided to move to Nebraska - which happened in Aug of '98.  We are certainly enjoying the great life here.  It is a slower pace, no traffic jams and very friendly people.  The population is around 6,500.  It's an old fashioned town - many stores with original store fronts.  We also have new stores - i.e. McDonalds and Walmart.  The country club is only two minutes from our house and yes, I 'm playing either nine or 18 holes almost every day  (18 holes in 3.5 hours!).  Maureen is in her second year of league bowling.  Seward has a bowling alley - it really is a popular sport out here, especially in the Winter.  We're about 24 miles from the big city of Lincoln; home of the "Big Red".   We are Nebraska fans but who in this state isn't a fan?  Red and black is a big part of our wardrobe now.
