Removing Horizontal Scan lines from a yearbook photo

I got a scanned photo from a yearbook and it has bad horizontal scan lines (some colored) and was wondering about tricks to remove them.  I have to print it 24" x 40"   I tried to do a layer with a gaussian blur and a top layer with an unsharp mask but to remove the line the blur removes too much detail.  Any ideas?  Tricks?   maybe even if I could get some outlines of the eyes or something?

Instead of Gaussian Blur, I tried using Motion Blur:

which at least only loses sharpness in one direction (shown with no added sharpening).

 

Maybe a striped pattern overlay of some sort? The Median filter is also a possibility.
