You might want to forward this to seaosc(--nospam--at) Jim Johnson is now retired
and is living in my town of La Quinta California. I believe he is fully
retired and has not been participating in SEAOSC activity for almost three
years. I have spoken with him only once since he moved here and I believe he
is getting the most out his hobbies and family. The best to him.

Pack Rat Roger Turk found the proposed change in SEAOC's submittal for a
change to the 1994 UBC in which a massive rewrite of a large part of Chapter
16 was proposed.  This was part of code change item 177 published in the
Nov-Dec, 1995 Building Standards, Part III, page 117.  Proponent was
SEAOC/Code, Contact:  James R. Johnson, J. R. Johnson Associates, 2211
Hacienda Blvd., Ste. 215, Hacienda Heights, CA  91745.

Hope this points you in the right directions, Barry.
