Hooray For Hollywood


People ask if any celebrities have stayed at Alpine. The answer is YES! From Bob Hope to Green Bay Packer Coach McCarthy, there have been many. The most recent was Lea Thompson, actress and television director who played Michael J Fox' mom and misguided love interest in "Back to the Future." She and Howard, her husband, current director of the TV series "Empire", visited Alpine last Fall.



The Joke's on You


"Dad," The boy said running home from school, "I've got my first part in a play. I play a man who's been married 25 years."

"That's a good story son," His Father replied, "Just keep at it and one of these days you may get a speaking part."



In Memoriam


Sad for us to learn that Kathy Lorenz' husband passed away. Also, Kathy Rauch's dad, Frank Vondra, passed on Aug. 31. They will be truly missed.
