Steve Behun Accepted to Harvard College


STEVE BEHUN - This guy was just accepted at Harvard. We are proud he is from Tamaqua High School. All 4 of us Everharts went there in Tamaqua PA. John Buglio was Keith's choral director 20 years ago. What a wonderful success story!

In 1962 - I played football at THS with a Steve Behun. I am guessing that was his grandfather. He was very tall too.

My First Car - Was A Scooter

In 1964 - I was 16. The Beach Boys were singing about riding a Little Honda. There was a dealer selling Honda Scooters in Still Creek PA. I was working delivering milk for Heisler's Dairy in the morning for $1 an hour. I worked from 5 am to 7 am - and then rode my new scooter to the high school. 

The scooter was officially called the Honda 50 Cub. It held two people and went 45 mph. It got 200 miles per gallon of gasoline. You kick started it - it had 3 speeds and no clutch. You could push start it too. 

I drove it for 2 years - going to NYC - Philly - Asbury Park NJ - Gettysburg - Wilmington DE - Chinoteague VA. In the summer of 1966 - I sold it to buy a 1956 VW Convertible. 

The Honda Cub 50 has become the most popular vehicle ever made - according to total sales. They still make it today. They have sold 100 million and counting.
