rfaces fconnl I Even though our hearts were saddened, the memory we can always embrace, The lasting beauty even death can't take from Princess Grace. We lost some others who nave made us cry or laugh along the way, Men likejack Webb and Henry Fonda and the founder of Frito-Lay. The memory of her voice is grand, oh how Karen Carpenter could sing, And music lost a special man, saying goodbye to Arthur Rubenstein. Death took away legends of sport in Norm Van Brocklin and Satchell Paige, It also called one of our own back home, when A.B. Morris passed away. Sports were again a cornerstone for all armchair quarterbacks, But if I had my way Fd tie Ed Garvey to the railroad tracks. A strike, we thought it was foolish, but the players wanted compensation, Seven weeks were lost when finally they settled for the original proposition. Pro football was not the only sport to suffer some chagrin, Boxing took a mighty blow with the death of Doo Ku Kim. And after Hagler said he'd not move down to fight in Leonard's division, Sugar Ray hung up his gloves in order to keep his vision. jim Valvano and his cardic kids jammed the points which won the crown, When the running Cougars sent their offense on a journey out of town. joe Paterno finally won a football title for his State Lions, But undefeated SMU got no respect, for a championship they were crying. The college ranks were shocked to learn that Herschel would defect, The USFL offered an unrefusable price, so what could we all expect. Baseball came back from strike despair wearing attendance record jewelry, ' And the Cardinals bombed Milwaukee in the Series. Lou Brock stepped down as the king of the baseball thievesg When the kid from Oakland shattered the mark, it was hard to believe. But the biggest news from sports last year with which none could compare. After 47 years of football, "retirement," said the Bear. As if by fate, it appeared so strange, for only a month went by, News from Birmingham sorrowed us all, we heard that he had died. We'll miss the Bear, he was one ofa kind, honor and praise were well deserv . ,..,, His talents many, his accomplishments great, his memory well preserved. ln honor of all the men who endured the shooting and flaming bombs, America "'f-1 ".i, finally remembered them, the veterans of Viet Nam. Weather, it seemed, was always a topic of many a conversation, Californians wished it would never again rain in their part of the nation. There were tornadoes where there had never been, floods in some high places, ' ' ' h Midwest, while the north received no traces. mgfjigmwl UN STRIKE It snowed in April in t e , h'l 't was snowing in the Panhandle C4J,,g,f,c,e1rz.Q,IEr' Q ,3 er , ,ft ,Texas the weather constantly changed and w 1 e 1 ' ' ' in climates perfect for wearing sandals. ,,..,...,Am1 . . , l .rrr s,,,,, grail A The folks in Brownsville were enyoy g ' g h future will bring new y , My g pm N ,N .ku A, , V x .x,,., Jow these experiences and people have become history t e ' ' ' d fferin conceiving memories true. - fr r T T- fr!
