    Mr. Shuren was one of my favorite teachers at Lakeland School, and I remember even though I didn’t take the Behind the wheel part of Driver’s Ed. he knew where I was coming from, when I talked about Doodles Weaver, who did 1930’s comedy about the Indy Five hundred along with Spike Jones, and a horse race, he liked “banana coming up from the bunch.”, and otherwise he made me feel like I was an adult, and will miss him very much.
