Comments: For our 30th reunion. It had become apparent when my sisters class sent out notices, I was lost again. So, all of you trying to reach me. Here I am and have plenty to share with my classmates and Senior class mates. You know who you are? Let's keep in touch. PS. You can even reach me by Phone (719) 268-2948, in Colorado Springs. Again the accurate spelling of my last name is MURCER. Much easier than BUSSANICH. Looking forward to hearing from you. Nancy, let me know what has been going on with you and your beautiful family?

Comments: Although I left Lexington just before my Jr. year (1976) my heart will always be with those I grew up with. Thank you for inviting me to the reunion this June. I have a tentative business trip booked for that weekend so will miss seeing many "old" friends.
So, let's cut to the chase: Moved to Colorado Springs in 1976 where I graduated from Cheyenne Mountain HS. Went on to graduate from Colorado State in 1982 with a B.S. in Horticulture. Moved to Tucson after college and worked in my field of study for exactly one year before I switched careers and became a travel agent. Moved to San Francisco in 1985 to work for Royal Viking Cruise Line for 3 years, then for Seabourn Cruise Line until 1999. After Seabourn moved to Miami, I became an independent professional tour director and have been on the move ever since. I travel to some amazing destinations and get paid for it! Just returned from 3 weeks in Australia and Tasmania.
Married Burlin Germany (no, I'm not kidding - that's really his name) on 10/10/2001. I have a wonderful stepson, Burlin, Jr. and an even more wonderful grandson, Tre, age 6. Both live with us in Vegas. My husband does anything with the word "baseball" in it: coaches at Arbor View HS near our home, gives batting lessons, sells baseball bats to all levels of players including the pros, scouts for the LA Dodgers, and even still plays in tournaments across the U.S. He played with the Royals and the Cardinals organizations back when I was going to school with all of you.
I try to get back to NE once a year to visit family. I loved my formative years in Lexington and wouldn't trade them for the world. It was great growing up on the farm/feedlot and I hope this 30th year reunion rekindles some long lost friendships. Peace, Gini

Comments: After graduation, I attended Kearney State College, receiving my BA in education. Although I had never planned to return to Lexington, I was offered a teaching position at District 15, which is located on the back roads to the lake, so back I came and here I remain. Since teaching at Dist. 15, I have had numerous jobs in varying nature. Currently, I am employed by the Lexington Public Schools as a substitute teacher.
In 1985, I married Craig Casper (class of '77) and we have three boys. This coming school year, Curt will be a junior, Eric will be a sophomore, and Blake will enter second grade. All three boys are very musical and compete in varying athletics. Needless to say, with three of them being "over involved", our social calendar is filled with concerts and athletic events.
My activities and hobbies include: spending time with family and friends, reading, playing cards, scrapbooking, cross stitching, scout leader, Sunday school teacher, TEAMMATE mentor, baseball coach, and membership in various other church and community groups.
Lexington has changed tremendously since we were kids. Joy comes from seeing people around town that I have known since I was a kid and in doing things with my kids that I remember doing when I was young. It has been a wonderful community to raise our family. We have been truly blessed!

Comments: Married Louis in December 1992. Our son was born in September of 1993. T.C.-1982, Drew-1984 and Kira-1987 from my first marriage to Tom Anthony (1979). Louis is a research scientist for Syngeta Seeds and I am now a lunch lady at Seward Middle School...that's no nights, weekends or summers! T.C. is a Doane graduate, Drew is at Arizona State until spring 2007, Kira is planning to attend Doane the fall of 2006 and Evan is a 6th grader, at my school, this year. We became Godparents to the Freshman class from our church this year. This is a four year commitment and is already proving to be quite an eye opener!

Comments: After graduation, I worked for Sperry New Holland until their first layoff. I worked for Baldwin's Mfg for a year and a half then transferred back to Sperry. As you all know that proved to be a mistake. The doors closed and I was out of a job. I enrolled at KSC and worked in Broken Bow while attending college.
Going to school for 15 hours/week and working night shift was taking its toll, so I joined the Navy and after "A" school moved to Washington DC. I was attached to the Hospital Ship Comfort and assigned to Bethesda Naval Hospital. When Desert Shield/Storm started up I went with the Comfort to Bahrain.
While onboard I designed the database and kept records on over 1235 personnel. I worked 24/7 on the ship, but as if I could go anywhere else anyway. I received a Navy Commendation Medal for my efforts aboard the Comfort and also while stationed at the Naval Hospital.
I received orders in 1993 to transfer to a Seabee Unit in Gulfport, Ms and went over to Rota, Spain. After a year with the Seabees, I had to get out of the Navy because of Parental Hardship. I had custody of my kids after my divorce and could not be deployed. So I moved back to Nebraska in April of 1994. In 1998 I started working for the City of Kearney as a Computer Technician until February of this year. Currently I am self-employed and fixing computers.
I have been married twice and divorced just as many times. Funny how that goes!!! Anyway I have 4 kids from the two marriages. 3 from my 1st and one from my second. Travys is my oldest and graduated UNK and works for Chief Industries as the International Sales Manager for Easterrn Europe and Russia. Talia, my oldest daughter is currently in the Navy and has just returned from Iraq. Amy, the youngest from my 1st marriage has a daughter and lives in Eustis. Brianna my youngest goes to school in Kearney.
Now you know about the boring life of myself. Feel free to email me!
