  1. Maybe there was something in the water when they built Maine North HS. Go Norsemen!!

    Maggie (Margaret Castagna) and I lived a few doors apart in the early 70s HS days. We’re both MN class of 1974. After we left they shot “The Breakfast Club” there in the early 80s.

    How’d we both get dragged into politics?!

    Maggie congratulations on your success! Best wishes and I’ll see you soon!

    P.S. No connection (that I know of), but Ray and I worked together at Motorola back in the old days…
