Floyd I got this from Judi Kampinen about an hour ago passed it on to Penny Tompkins for Terry to see and she said to send it to you. 5:30 pm 7/22/2019
This is the message to the class of '66, from Judi Kampinen.
at 3:52 pm on 7/22/2019
"Forgive my message out of the blue but I wanted to alert you to one of our classmates actions against us. Floyd Ruggles has posted detailed pictures from each of our Facebook accounts on his store's website with other personal information regarding our families. I did not give Floyd permission to do this and despite three attempts asking him to remove this content, he has not done it. We are now pursuing further legal action against him. I suggest you all look into his website Antiques page to find information about yourselves and your families that you perhaps did not want to be public on the internet."
This is my message to North High class of '66,
Thanks. I have posted information on the class website which I host through my business website at no cost to the class. Judith K. "Judi" Gabrielson-Kampinen requested that I remove all of her photos that were on Facebook regarding her daughter from the class site. I have done that. I really don't understand why I am being attacked like this. I removed her daughter's photos as soon as I heard from Judi Kampinen.
I am doing all of this work for the class voluntarily. If any class member does not want to be on the North High School class of 1966 website just let me know and I will remove them from the site.
I am really tired of the whole thing. I have put in many many hours on this site.
If the class does not want me to continue finding members, and I have found about 90% of the almost 400 missing from 2010, and updating information they should let me know. I can drop the entire Minneapolis North High School Class of 1966 website if that is what the class wants.
I will drop all but this message from Judi's webpage. If anyone else would like to be dropped, let me know. These are links for classmates of the class of '66 website:

"Thank you all, for your support"
Thanks for having my back and looking out for me!
I really don’t know why she is upset, but please don’t be too upset, I think you do a marvelous job with the site and it gives us all a chance to see what is going on with our fellow classmate. Thanks for all you do
Davidene Walensky Weinberg
I also think it’s not only ok but very nice of you to put in so much time for our class. If anyone is offended by this, edit to remove their information if possible. Leave mine in. If possible.
Carol Rucke Glime
Keep on keeping on, bro
Robert E Griffin
Floyd, you have brought many people together who otherwise may not have gotten a second chance to connect with one another and have enjoyed doing so, Thank you for your tireless hours.
Carmen O'Brien Rettke
Floyd, Please press on my friend

You are outstanding Floyd... so sorry this has happened... I love the hard work you do for your class and our veterans
Mary Hart Bahneman
Thanks Floyd for all the effort you have put into this and anyone else that has helped you ..
I just looked at my time capsule and it’s fabulous thanks again
Patti Weber McAnally
Thanks Patti, Your time capsule will stand for 20 year after I'm gone.
Thanks for all your effort. Myrtis Ingram Allotey
I too am VERY appreciative of all the work you do for our wonderful class of 1966 Floyd! Do not let this person rattle you
I think you have done an outstanding job Floyd! Keep up the good work! We appreciate you and your expertise in this area for our Class of 66’!
I’m in agreement also with everyone you have done a tremendous job on the class of 66! Sorry it takes one person to ruin everything.
Mary Earley Oliver
I’m in agreement with the others who also appreciate the time, effort & work you’ve put in the Class of 1966 site.

"Thank you all so much. For bringing sunshine to my day."
Gail, most definitely
Thanks for all you do Floyd. Did you ever find Linda Hansen?
Marilynn Wolk Paulson
Thanks Marilynn, I'm looking for Linda this is a link to her webpage: Click Here
I also appreciate everything thing you do Floyd. If you have followed her request then I would think there would be no further action against you. Please continue the great work that you do. I believe you are the primary reason we have such good reunions.
I appreciate everything you do for the class of 66. Sorry you are being attacked this way. Semper Fi Brother!
Thanks for all the work you put in for us Floyd, keep it up.
Floyd, With all the craziness in the world today, I understand Judi’s hesitation to have a lot of personal information online. However, that being said, I am blown away by all you have done for our class. I appreciate your efforts and hope you continue. Maybe we just have to have an ‘opt out’ option. Just a thought. Thanks.
I appreciate all the work you have done and love the website.. Funny I never thought of it as YOUR website.... I thought it was Class of 66's website. Good idea to have the opt out option...but probably all the info on our site is available elsewhere anyway. Thank you for all you do....Abbie Lazarus Greene..aka Misty Keep me on the website please..
I agree completely with Misty and Jeff. You have done a fantastic job. When people post things online, isn't that kind of open to the public anyway? Most classmates are glad to find out about former classmates. Keep up the good work!
You do great work...
Like I have said before thank you for all you do.
Davidene Walensky Weinberg
So sorry Sunny this is terrible, some people just don't appreciate all the work others do for them. I understand I really do
Floyd Ruggles you are one of the kindness and most compassionate person in the world! I love the work you do for our class.
Mary Hart Bahneman
Thanks Mary, for your kind words
I really appreciate your website, Floyd. It's allowed me to keep in touch with our class no matter where in the world I have lived
No good deed goes unpunished, Floyd. Hang in there. These days personal security is attached more and more to personal paranoia. As we get hacked daily by bad actors (Russian, N Koreans, Iranians and East European mafia, etc), we all get more sensitive to "perceived privacy invasions", well meaning or not. With all the work you and I do locating our Nam Recon brothers, it's unfortunately bound to happen again.
Thanks, I'll Hang in there
Floyd, keep up the wonderful work you do for all of us. You keep us in touch, provide much information and receive no monetary compensation. You are truly invaluable. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!
Floyd, you've done a really great job, thanks to which I was able to renew contact with my class. Please don't spill the baby with the bath water. On the other hand, I agree that people's wishes for privacy should be respected.
Floyd, Keep up the good work, too bad Judy is upset but you have brought joy to others.
Joanne Cullinan Peterson
Most of us appreciate your hard work. It is a well run site.
Wow Floyd that's terrible! I am so glad you are doing this for us! Class of '66! Judi must not have had a good experience at North
Trudy Persons Parks
Thanks, sorry for responding a little bit late but I have been working to get ready for a possible legal challenge to the class website.
I can’t believe anyone would be so vindictive and petty. I know you have done many hours of work on our web site and it especially meant so much to me for the memorial for Ernie when he passed away. If you took down all of her pictures what is her problem? The rest of the class love the web site!
Really sounds like Judy Kampinen has dementia. If nothing else I would report her to authorities, so this is on record. Sorry she keeps doing this to you.
Thanks Kathy, "Judy need a break and am hoping this is the end of it." 7/25/2019 11:15am
Floyd - so sorry you are experiencing this kind of harassment. I personally appreciate all you do for our class and hope you will continue.
Keep up the great work Floyd! With out you I would of lost touch with lots of old class mates. Living in California it is hard to keep in touch.. Remember you can not please all the people all the time, there is always that one percent, at least you keep the other 99% of us informed and that's AWESOME.

Floyd, I contacted you on Friday to immediately remove all photos of me from your public store website. You told me this would be complete at the end of the afternoon. Those pictures are still up. My family is in danger and more threats have been made as a result your pictures. You will take them down IMMEDIATELY. You were never given permission from me to use my pictures from my Facebook page on your website. What you have done is illegal breaking copyright infringement law. We are now pursuing legal action against you. My husband is a lawyer. Expect a letter from us regarding this matter.
Thanks Judi, Yes I have posted information on the class website which I host through my business website at no cost to the class. You requested that I remove all of your photos that were on Facebook regarding your daughter from the class site. I have done that. I really don't understand why I am being attacked like this. I removed your daughter's photos as soon as I heard from you. I am doing all of this work for the class voluntarily. If any class member does not want to be on the North High School class of 1966 website can just let me know and I will remove them from the site. I am really tired of the whole thing. I have put in many many hours on this site. If the class does not want me to continue finding members, and I have found about 90% of the almost 400 missing from 2010, and updating information they should let me know. I can drop the entire website if that is what the class wants. I will drop you from the North High School Class of 1966 website ASAP. If you know of anyone else that would like to be dropped, let me know. This is your link to NHS66.com website: http://www.weststpaulantiques.com/websitesotherareas/northhighclassof1966.html

Whenever you share photos with your Facebook friends you are giving up ownership of any intellectual property rights you may own in the photos you upload.
Think Before Posting
Thanks to the smartphone and apps such as Instagram, thousands of photos are uploaded to Facebook every day. Some people upload dozens of photos a week, capturing even the most mundane events to share with family and friends.
Even photos that are uploaded as private can be shared with others. On July 1st, 2019 you had over 280 friends on Facebook. You have a duty to respect those around you by not uploading photos that don't belong in a public forum.
Read the small print you agreed to with facebook. All pictures belong to Facebook and its members. You have the right to set your privacy setting to include just your friends or even just yourself, but it does not negate the right of Facebook to use them.
Judith K. "Judi" Gabrielson-Kampinen
I'm sorry you are upset but you need to take responsibility for posting all those photos in the first place.
Thank you for taking down the pictures Floyd. I'm sorry this seemed to get so out of control I didn't mean it that way. Please understand we are very nervous about safety right now. You've done a great job with the site. Keep up the good work.
Judi Kampinen 7/23/2019
I want to reach out to say thank you for taking down the pictures on your website. This seems to have gotten quite out of hand and in no way were we trying to attack you - I apologize if it seemed that way. We are all in a heightened sense of fright given what has happened recently and the urgency was paramount. It sounds like you have put a lot of work into this page and it certainly sounds like many classmates are grateful and appreciative of your work. I really hope we can put this to rest now and continue on with our lives. If you have any other concerns, don't hesitate to write me back.

After receiving an apology last night, this afternoon at 3:03 pm, I received a threatening and harassing phone call at my business from Judi during which she called me a liar and demanded that I stop posting. She did not identify herself at first and it took me awhile to figure out who was yelling at me. I am just glad an associate did not answer. I told her I will continue to post whatever she or anyone in her family sends me in writing and to stop calling.
I don't need this harassment and disruption of my work and volunteer commitments. Due to her I was unable this weekend to find the time to send out 500 mailings for my military reunion. I don't have the time or energy to keep dealing with this. A class member I spoke with today suggested I need some time off. I thought I could do that but then I received this phone call. Consequently, I will be taking time off from the reunion committee and the class website. At this time, I will only post what I receive concerning this matter and notices of any deaths in the class.
Thank you to everyone who has been so supportive during this time. I appreciate your kind words and encouragement. I just am trying to keep the class informed. I need a break and am hoping this is the end of it.

I Love what you do, Bro
Amazed at the “snowflakes” even from our class. THANK YOU for what you do. Others may not like it, but it keeps me “in the loop” way out west. Had a right-brain stroke on Halloween (total left side paralyzed) and relapse in March but still preaching and just did first 3000 mile road trip with flying colors.
I looked at MY name and about 100 more. Noticed nothing from 50th (I brought my wife to prove I really AM happily married) and send these along.
And a couple others to clutter the site.
Can I send you a few $$ as a thank-you to help defray expense of the site? Not much – I’m a poor preacher and don’t make much money, either.
