    *Previous Band Members of the Month*
    James L. Starkey, III

    Jim resides in Ansonia CT with his wife Carol.  He started his musical training in his hometown of Salineville, Ohio with the Salineville High School marching band.  There, he was given a choice between playing the tuba and the bass fiddle and the decision became an easy one when the band director's wife inadvertently drove over the bass fiddle!  A highlight of his high school band years was being a member of the Salineville band during which it was conducted by guest conductor, Paul Lavalle of Cities Service Band fame.

    Between shift changes at Pratt-Whitney, North Haven, CT, Jim managed to devote 12 years of time playing with the Stratford Community Concert Band and has fond memories of past members: Art Church, Frank Furman, and the "Senior" Dr. Sherman.

    In years past, he was surprised by a visit from his former high school band director, Richard Howenstine, who was pleased to hear that Jim was still "tooting the tuba".
