KUNTZ: A box of old stuff
The last time I saw my high school yearbook from 1967 ("Zee-ka-tow") was probably when we packed our belongings in Alaska and moved to Montana. That was in 1986. About a month ago, with my 50th JHS reunion approaching, I began speculating about which of the many boxes in our garage...
