On Sunday, December 28, 2014, at the regionally famous Brat Stop in Kenosha, Wisconsin, internationally infamous former Eastern News editors gathered for a mini-reunion.

 Theresa Norton moves away any valuable objects as Andy Savoie begins his animated stories.

 A relaxed Tom Keefe awaits another reaction from Andy as he spies the last Bears game on the TV.
While discussing one of Tom's youthful adventure stories, he decides to randomly call one of his co-conspirators, Bernie Frey. Yes, there was a Bernie contact! 
 Tess talks to Bernie in the habitat of the former Eastern News alumns, a crowded and large bar.
 Tom and Andy have no qualms about interrupting Bernie's quiet Sunday afternoon.
 Dru Sefton ponders if smart phone technology and social media was around
when we were in college, we'd all have prison tattoos.

On Saturday, December 27, 2014, Jerry Przybysz, Matt Piescinski and Paul Pinderski gathered at the Rock Bottom Brewery in Orland Park, IL to honor their late friend, Mark Hepner, who had created and hosted the WELH Alumni reunions. It was Jerry's turn to make the official entry in the Register.

We also realized that Matt is still clinging to dinosaur communication devices.
