Dining With Duvall By Lynn Duvall Last month I enjoyed a meal in the Hoover High School cafeteria, catered by Acapulco. My table mates were strangers, though, like me, they were graduates of the high school. We'd gathered with nearly 100 other grads to work on plans for the upcoming 75th anniversary celebration on May 15. One gentleman talked effusively about the jazz ensemble at the school. His enthusiasm ran very high. Finally, when he stopped for a breath, I asked, "How do you know so much about them?"
