At Adamson reunion, warm fuzzies

Some of Adamson High School’s most famous alumni came through for the all-class reunion Saturday. The reunion got a lot of attention because the 95-year-old school is in danger of being torn down.

Michael Martin Murphey was there. Calvin Yarbrough and Alisa Peoples Yarbrough sang the national anthem and a few of their own tunes. Their 1981 hit single as Yarbrough & Peoples, "Don’t Stop the Music", has been sampled extensively in more recent rap and R&B songs.

But the heaviest hitter might be former U.S. House Speaker Jim Wright, who said he hoped and prayed that "the hallowed halls" of Adamson woudln’t be demolished.
