    In British slang, "lary" pronounced "LAIR-ee" means loud.

    I guess Mathias and Iness would have been known as the 2 larrikins.

    Your latter one is probably a better description of how we said it.
    Back in elementary school they taught us the "schwa", which we just called "upside down e", and which was more or less a really short "uh". If I were using a dictionary description of the pronunciation I'd probably use a schwa.

    I just looked up the notable graduates for Tulare Union High School.

    Pretty impressive to have two 4-star flag officers - Admiral Elmo Zumwalt and USAF General Maurice Preston.

    Bob Mathias was born in Tulare, California 91 years ago today. Again, good work, LopenUupunut.

    Mathias was only 17 years old when he won the 1948 London Olympic decathlon (something that would be pretty difficult to do nowadays) .

    He won the 1952 Helsinki Olympic decathlon and later went into politics.

    Mathias, a graduate of Stanford University, died at the age of 75 in Fresno, California from cancer.

    Thank you, LopenUupunut.

    Must be correct. Tulare is the scrambled word. Sim Iness is the other Olympic champion. Don't know who the Nobel prizewinners are, though.
