Technique is often more important than speed as many hurdle races are won by the runner making the fewest errors in form. Introduction - 1 Success highlights programs “Algonac’s success is due to the quality of the personnel, and undoubtedly, the brand of students,” said Mr. Ford. Algonac High School is successful, from it’s newly added sixth hour to a wider variety of academic classes. The athletic program has improved since a physical education program, including the elementary schools, was reinstated. For 93 years, Algonac High ' s administrators have worked hard to provide a good academic program for all of the students, and each year, the program improves. A few of the classes that Mr. Ford pointed out to be extremely successful are College Composition and Senior Math .‘‘Students may end up being upset at the teachers at one point or another, but they graduate knowing their math and English.” 2 - Introduction During the halftime show at the September 27 game vs. Marine City, Band members reach the finale in the feature performance. jM[illage results in expanded programs Just another year? In many ways no. A sixth hour, Home Ec., Weight Training and many new teachers made September 1985 special. “The more classes, the better. Now, perhaps they can take something they will enjoy, besides required classes,’ ’ stated History teacher Mr. Godfrey when asked what he thought about all the changes. Positive feelings continued to grow. The Back to School Dance found the gym crowded to capacity with students melting in the 96 degree heat, dancing to the tunes of D.J. George Burgess. A tie for Homecoming Queen made history on October 1 1 . Enthusiasm surfaced in many areas. Freshmen competed for placement in the homecoming competition. Their organization enabled their float to come in third. Sweetest Day sent 550 greetings out as seniors sold carnations for special messages. Deliveries were on October 18. Rat Review ' s homecoming issue sold a record 457 copies as students clamored for an issue. Also, the sports program really got off the ground. Mr. Szur, the new full-time sports director, said, “ I’d like to eventually get the sports system organized and in shape. I’d like to give sports a positive feeling here. " Spirit, at times, seemed in short supply. Mr. Szur’s enthusiasm has helped give new inspiration. Cross Country kept the school cheering as they took 2nd place in SCAL, losing to St. Clair by only one point on October 22. Excitement returned to Algonac, renewed life in school... there’s no stopping us now. Being senior class vice president has a few special privileges.

After four years of five-hour days things changed drastically. New schedules were sent in July to all students to prepare for the added sixth hour. “ I took Business law for my extra class, because it seemed like the practical thing to do,” answered Cheryl McLean when asked what she took as her added class. “I took French because I wanted to learn a different language and I wanted to go to Europe again,” stated Cheryl Scott. (Cheryl traveled with Mr. Trotter’s tour, July, 1985.) Of course, with the addition of new elective courses, some new requirements must also be made. Effecting the Class of 88, the new requirements are single semesters of: Speech, Computer Science, and Physical Education, and four years of Social Studies . Variety in events and activities continue to make living in Algonac interesting. Bright summer days found many students on boats relaxing and perfecting tans. Summer, 1985 also found many students at various camps. Band members spent a week in August at CYO camp in Lexington. Individual members of basketball and volleyball teams and the yearbook co-editors participated in workshops. More activities, new classes, changing requirements... there’s no stopping us now. Attention to detail completes the mural. Maggie Barker adds the finishing touches to the eyes.

Living on the water provides many days of fun in the sun for water skiers, Chris Blackbur n, Andy Petrovich, Darrell Amoe, and Rob Bernardi. Introduction - 5 Student activities... fun filled days S-P-I-R-I-T .he 8ym actually shook as students screamed frantically for their teams in the annual tug of war during homecoming week. Although the Seniors put up quite a fight, the Juniors came away with victory. An overwhelming response to the dance led the dance committee to finally secure the gym to have it in. Although no street shoes could be worn on the new finish on the floor, most of the students were in such good humor that it really made little difference. There were other obstacles to homecoming activities, such as, the unfortunate clash of band competitions and hall decorations. The tie of Chris Castiglione and Sandy Placencia for queen made things at least a little complicated, but interesting for all involved. Domination continued in areas — Marching Band captured ones in the annual Marching Band Festival on October 9 for the fourth year in a row. Yearbook and newspaper staffs journeyed to Bowling Green University in Ohio for the 33rd Great Lakes Interscholastic Press Association. For the third year in a row, Remembrance received first place in judging. Assemblies added spice to the day. Free Fair returned with a concert that shook the gym. Unique happenings, unique year . . . there ' s no stopping us now. Preparation is a key to any sport. Varsity football players warm up before the October 1 1 game against Cros-Lex. Rings are a special item for juniors. Gary Sellers looks at the display of available rings prior to putting down his $20 deposit. No Stopping 6 - Student Life Division Homecoming: 10 With a variety of activities through the week, students changed daily appearance to meet themes. Nerd day was very popular as Tom Morrow- displays his studious nature. Band: 24 Practice, practice and more practice make the Marching Band the “Pride of the Blue Water Area " as the band marches at the September 27 pre-game show. Homecoming: 14 Pie eating is often a student favorite. Eric Edgecomb again eats his way to victory, while Tracey LaParl watches to see who finishes first. Newspaper: 34 Deadlines provide publication nightmares. Cheryl Scott races the clock after school to get the Homecoming issue to the printers. Student Life Division - 7 Sixth hour provides expanded op portunities Enthusiastic’ describes the faculty and administrations’ reaction to all the changes this year. After four years of having to choose between a language class or band, or staying after school for the optional sixth hour, everyone returned to a six hour day. “I’ve always taken a sixth hour anyway, so they might as well make it official,” said senior Marty Davis. Economics teacher, Mr. Basinski commented that the number of students per class is down, allowing teachers to give more individual attention. He also added “more students display some kind of interest in excelling.” Some of the positive changes expressed by Late October sun provides a backdrop for LeAnn Harden to record results from the Chemistry experiment. A bushel of apples quickly becomes material for apple pie as Monica Stahl and Thongla Lin peel and slice. Mr. Ford in regard to the millage were: a much larger variety of classes and challenging academic courses that will prepare students for the future. Some of the future goals for the school are to continue to rebuild the curriculum, some new classes, especially those for the gifted and or talented students. Mr. Gilbreath commented that everyone felt better, the teachers have community backing, new courses are available and college bound students know they will have a good education behind them. English teacher, Mr. Holmes felt that the changes will improve education. “Students seem to think they will have a better chance at after school goals, and be more prepared.” Mrs. Wylie teaches a new class: ’Computer Use and Software’. She thought the classes had great attitudes, were motivated, aware and “interested in becoming computer literate.” Mr. Shafer, who returned to Algonac after a four year absence, commented that he likes the students and that the school is in better shape now. ■in Trancscribing accurately is an important part of developing shorthand skills.

Welding takes concentration and a steady hand as Tom Tilly discovers. Academic Outlooks 9 Rowdy and enthusiastic seniors cheer for the contestants in the October 1 1, 6th hour pep assembly. Stacy Pisarski finds dressing up on Nerd Day amusing and a bit embarrassing as she and Jerry Lee wait for class to begin. Trying to catch that elusive doughnut is more of a challenge than Jim Lipps realized. Tug of war has become a traditional challenge between classes. Seniors Jeff Poosch, Jon Byerly, Tony Meldrum, Mark Heyza, Preston Borchardt, Dennis McGuire and with the juniors exert the muscle in a tough battle during the October 1 1 assembly. 10 - Homecoming Enthusiastic crowd rocks gym Under the organization of Student Council, Homecoming ' 85 took shape. Traditional activities were the dress up days throughout the week. Class themes were: Seniors - Holidays, Juniors - Punk, Sophomores - Fairy Tales, and Freshmen -Nursery Rhymes. Students dressed to Occupation Day, Beach Bum Day, Nerd Day and of course, Blue and Gold Day. “I liked it better this year compared to last year because the school put out more activities and the students showed their spirit for once. " said Tim Harlow. In August and September, Student Council had meetings to set up a list of possible days. They also made a list of themes and each class chose their own theme this year in a break from tradition. On Theme Day, a committee of four student council members went to classes and counted individual students for points. Stacy Bellia Student Council President, explained: " Each class received one point per person. They had to have more than two articles on to qualify. " " I think that getting dressed up for Homecoming Week is fun. However, I think getting dresssed up should be your own choice, " said Debbie MacDonald. The point results were announced at the Homecoming game with the other spirit jug totals. Organizing the w r eek provided many challenges. According to Stacy, " Spirit Week takes more time than expected, it becomes your life for about a month just getting the entire week organized. " Besides the dress up days, there were also dances, halftime activities, assemblies, float building and hall decorating. In a break from tradition, girls became participants on October 1 1 in the first female tug of war. Tasha Linsday, Cherie Reed, Patty Carson, Debbie Gontarek, Gina George, Kim Hallum and Melanie Claik pull to keep points in the ’87 column. As a result of publicity all of the classes filled the gym on October 8 for the evening pep assembly. For the first time in many years, freshman numbers were close to the other classes. Homecoming -11 On his way to football practice, Kurt Heyza helps add holiday cheer to the senior hall. Time affects quality, amount Enthusiasm and cooperation are major essentials when it comes to class competition, especially in the hall-decorating contest. This year, however, those essentials were not there. Very few students showed on October 9 to help their class win points toward the Spirit Jug. This damaged the feelings of Spirit Week for many. Although the shortage of students was partially due to the lack of enthusiasm and spirit, it was also due to the lack of knowledge. Many students did not know when the decorating was to take place. Freshman Lori Yax commented, “I didn’t know when we were supposed to.” The small number of announcements was not the only problem, as some students thought the hall decorating was limited to certain people. “I never knew I could decorate,” stated Freshman Jerry Lee. Student Council members tried to utilize class memoes to let everyone know how to be involved in the homecoming week activities. The memoes did help increase attendance at the pep rallies, but not with the halls. Time was limited with decorating time beginning at 2:30 until 6:00. Band members had to assemble at the school by 5:30 to participate in competitions that evening. This prevented many Band members from helping. For the few students that did show to decorate, there were some problems such as the themes being too difficult to decorate to, and just not enough bodies to do the decorating. 12 - Homecoming Homecoming, events add a touch of class Homecoming for Algonac came on Friday, October 1 1 at 4:30 without the traditional float parade before the game. Instead, there was a brief showing of floats before the game and during halftime. Lack of time was the main enemy of Homecoming 85. Time was too limited for a float parade or showing of the floats on the center of the football field.. “If the floats would have been displayed, the game would have run until after dark,” Mr. Ford said. He also said that Homecoming will be held on a Saturday next year to give everyone more time. “And the two queens are...” were the words that Mr. Gilbreath used to surprise the entire crowd. The members of the court were surprised also. After recounting the votes four times Ms. Broeder and Mr. Ford decided that both girls should receive the honor. This meant a rush to secure flowers and a crown., “Throughout this entire Homecoming Week Taking second place with an outstanding float, sophomores Lisa Dabelstein, Deana Vernier, Sara Meldrum, Lisa Christiaens, Shawn Leonard, and Kelly Ponke portray favorite fairy tales. things were close between all of the classes. It was a real pleasure to see both girls recognized, said Student Council adviser Ms. Broeder. .Queens Chris Castiglione and Sandy Placencia said they were both happy and excited to be picked. Sandy said “1 thought it made the whole thing more exciting,” while Chris said “I was really surprised. I don’t know how I feel about two queens. It was an experience and I’m just happy I was one of them.” During the first quarter, float judging took place. Community members judged the floats and then they were displayed on the track around the field for the crowd to see. Band put on a spectacular show for the fans with a special number featuring the Precisionettes and Majorettes. Captains of the two squads set up their routines and then had them approved by Mr. Reed before working on the show. Nursery rhymes welcome freshmen, Tracy Lobeck, Steve Moran, Carey Eaton, Tracy Tetler, and Jenny Newman to their first Homecoming. Taking first place, seniors celebrate holiday through the entire year. The first place finish secured the spirit jug for the class of ' 86. Below: September 27 gave the class of ' 86 their first chance to sit in the traditional senior section. As the assembly progressed, all eagerly awaited the announcement of the Homecoming Court. Finishing off the week of Punk Rock, juniors Deana Trocino, Sandy Taft, Gisela Sampson, Cindy Angers, Tamara Keil, and Lori Stobar add musical entertainment to halftime. Homecoming - 13 F rom nerds to surfers, spirit takes over After an absence of two years, the night pep assembly returned. Student Council voted to include the night assembly in the absence of the parade. Students attending the evening assembly on Tuesday, October 8 added points for their class through the number of people present and participation in the games. The Spirit Jug is awarded annually to the class with the most points. The activities were: number of people at the night pep assembly, points for the games, hall decorations, theme day dress up, and floats. Points were awarded: Night Pep Assembly - 1st - Seniors, 2nd - Juniors, 3rd -Freshmen and 4th - Sophomores; Hall decorations - 1st - Juniors, 2nd -Seniors, 3rd - Sophomores and 4th -Freshmen; Dress up Day - 1st - Seniors, 2nd - Juniors, 3rd - Freshmen, 4th -Sophomres; Friday’s Pep Assembly - 1st -Seniors, 2nd - Sophomores, 3rd - Juniors, 4th - Freshmen and Floats - 1st -Seniors, 2nd - Sophomores, 3rd - Freshmen and 4th - Juniors.

She spent two weeks getting everything ready, making the pictures and coloring them to add highlights. When the evening of decorations came, she was shocked to discover only one student council member present and a few other sophomore volunteers. Some students found the conflict between the band competitions and the halls prevented them from helping. Between the halls, assemblies and everything in between, the Seniors again captured the Spirit Jug. Searching for pennies in a container of flour is a challenge.

TOY r w m LKMJ Andy Petrovich and Steve Ponke proudly give warm hugs to Chris Castiglione and Sandy Placencia after the girls were announced as co-queens. A bit of excitement is evident, as Sandy Placencia receives her crown from alumni representative, Mrs. Murray. Mrs. Murray was on the court in 1966. The class of 66 was honored at the game. Leslie Bieke, queen from 1985 crowned Chris Castiglione. T wo queens - leads to memorable Homecoming Traditionally, Homecoming began much like other years. There was a drum roll to introduce each member of the court, parents presented flowers and the seniors were announced as winners of the Spirit Jug. Then the queen decision. As each of the seniors quietly held her breath, Mr. Gilbreath made a surpise an- nouncement ... there had been a tie. Chris Castiglione and Sandy Placencia were announced as queens. Applause burst from the stands as the girls were crowned. Chris stated: “I was in shock, my mouth was hanging open and I thought I was going to faint.” Sandy said, “I was really happy and surprised. It made my whole senior year.” As the sun shined on one of the few rainless days of the fall, the girls marched off the field to the click of dozens of cameras. Later that evening, the dance was held at the gym with a capacity crowd en- joying the tunes of d.j. Kevin Fenton. The entire week ended on positive notes. Total shock and suprise is evident as Andy Petrovich and Chris Castiglione react to Mr. Gilbreath ' s announcement. Seniors do it again! Leonard Pascoe proudly holds the spirit jug for the class. Leonard, as class vice president, accepted the jug as class president Kit Raymond was a member of the court. H omecoming - 17 F un and excitement roars through crowd at annual yearbook assembly Looking to create enthusiasm for the 1986 yearbook and provide a fun afternoon, the yearbook staff sponsored their fourth annual yearbook assembly on November 7. In addi- tion to the entire hour being devoted to fun and games, four yearbooks were raffled and each participant in a game re- ceived bonuses from free name stamps to money deductions on their yearbooks. As the assembly began four people were called to sit on blocks of ice. Samantha Baker said, “I was embarrassed when they first called me down, but after a few minutes, I didn ' t care. However, it was very cold. " Pop guzzling kept the crowd on it’s feet. Brian Lonergan said: " All I could think of was guzzling it down. " Pie eating remains a sticky favorite. The pies were a little unappealing as during the day, they melted into chocolate messes. By the end with each class screaming for victory, the an- nual tug of war continued. Throughout the years, the tug of war has become a high point of each assembly. It becomes a point of honor to be on the tug of war team and pull your team to victory. As Scott Schumacher stated, " I participated in the assembly to help my class win. " Sticky pop running down their faces didn ' t matter for Brian Lonergan and Mike Brockley, who were eager to win points for their class. 18 - Yearbook Assembly Preparing all of the balloons was a challenge for yearbook staff member Dawn Harding.

However, Mark Heyza and John Desmarais braved the cold classrooms to dress as Romans. Members of the court, Eric Parent and Tanya Hulewicz wait for their name to be announced before walking to the stage to the cheers. Tanya joined the class of ’86 in January. Exams and second semester class changes put a damper on Winter Wacky Week. Scheduled for the first week of the new semester, the change of classes involved many students. Also, the exams demanded so much time the week before that the classes did not take time to organize their decorations. As a result, the week met with limited success. WWW began with Toga Day. Unfor- tunately, Toga Day coincided with a cold wave. As a result, students chose sweaters and coats over sheets. Color day also brought limited participa- tion. A lack of publicity prevented students from being aware of specific colors. College Day met with more participation as students dressed in their favorite shirts. Themes helped with gym decorations. The Freshmen chose Rambo, Sophomores — Muppet Babies, Juniors — Rocky and Seniors After the announcement newly announced King, Paul Elliott poses with Sandy Placencia, his escort. Sandy was also chosen Homecoming Queen earlier in the year. Outstanding best describes the sophomore gym decorations.

Chosen as representatives for the various classes were: Dave Benke’89, Mike Stubbs 88, Tom Morrow 87 and representing the class of 86 — Rob Bernardi, Andy Petrovich, Eric Parent, Dan Roland and King Paul Elliott. Blue and gold day met with success on Fri- day. A pep assembly helped build spirit for the game. After class competitions, court members got into an altercation with whipped cream pies. The end result was whipped cream all over. Gym decorations competition was easily won by the sophomores. In the voting by peo- ple attending the game, 90% of the votes went to the class of ' 88. After the week, the highpoint was the crowning of WWW king, Paul Elliott. inter Wacky Week brings annual craziness W inter Wacky Week — 2 1 Getting carried away with the music and spirit of the February 1 3 dance Cindy Angers and Amy Fioram move with the beat of the music.

Andy Petrovich took them literally at their word and came as one of the outstanding dressers at the MORP dance. Morp dance a total success A MORP dance? For Valentine s Day? Slob contests? After brainstorming, Rat Review decided to term their theme dance a MORP — meaning the op- posite of Prom dress. Enthusiastic students packed the cafteria as 262 students found their grub- biest clothes and danced appropriately. With the bi-weekly dances, this was one of the largest crowds. As an added benefit, students were eligible for door prizes. The door prize was advertised as dinner at a local restaurant. Unfortunately, no one told the par- ticipants what the restaurant was. As the quiet hush fell over the crowd, Mr. Shafer read the numbers of the winning tickets and two lucky students Linda Schutt and Donna Calcaterra came up to claim their prize, dinner at White Castle. Dress kept everyone laughing as students braved the cold in shorts or their favorite pair of grubby jeans or sweatsuit. Moving to the tunes of dj s George Burgess and Kevin Fenton, the students reluctantly left at 12: 10. Overall, the dance brought the Rat Review about $600, while it also brought a great time to the students. Jana Taylor commented, it was fun, people had a good time.” Tuxedo and all Kim Kasperowicz took the instructions on how to dress for the dance seriously. Securing a place on stage, Amy Heinrich , Dannette Houle and Tricia Cobb danced while many others crowded the dance floor below. At each dance, students sought a place on the stage to dance. With the quiet hush over the crowd, Mr. Shafer pulls the winning ticket while Kevin Fenton helps with a flashlight to see the numbers. The students anxiously awaited the announcement with the offer of a free dinner. MO R P dance Laura DiVergilio stays in step as she marches to Winner ' s Circle. (Constructing award winning halftime shows After returning from u hard week at CYO camp in Lexington, August 23 - August 28, the marching band went on to construct halftime performances to work their way to the MSBOA competition festival on October 9. There they received straight “ l’s” for the fourth year in a row. Reacting to the success at this competition, Tammy Musson stated, “I felt we had ac- complished what we were trying to do all year.” Traditionally the honor of being drum major has been given to a senior. In May, 1985, band members elected Erick Senkmajer, junior, as drum major. Erick went to camp at Michigan State University during the summer. He learned how to march and cope with situations. Erick stated that when he found out that he was chosen as drum major, “I was so happy that I was just estatic.” Band members practiced an average of at least 1 1 hours a week for the festival. A majority of band members felt that the practices did ef- fect their homework time and a few of their extra-curricular obligations. Each year Band A Rama goes on to bigger and better things. This year, Jim Potter gave a slide presentation throughout the performance. It showed various people playing their in- struments, marching and doing routines. Band A Rama had everything from strobe lights to 37 precisionettes and majorettes carrying the American flags. Jim Potter volunteered to work with the band from band camp on to preparing for this show on November 9. As a result of Dave Dodge’s involvement at Holy Cross, the marching band was invited to play in the Homecoming Parade and halftime festivities for Holy Cross on October 27. This performance finished the parade season on a spectacular note. Cheering the mighty Muskrats, Precisionettes march to the AHS Fight Song.

Band -25 Academic pressures change Jazz Band program Academic pressures and ch allenges further changed the band program Beginning with second semester, Taft Road Jazz Society moved to 7th hour. Marty Esselink commented, “I don’t think it is a good idea, and it will force me to leave Jazz Band this semester.’’ Some advantages of hav- ing the class 7th hour are: a bus will be available for the students, and a few r more students will be auditioned and have no opportunity to participate. Trying out for the Frecisionette and Majorette squads is a challenge. Tryouts are held in the spring and each girl has to perfect her routine. Once on the squad, “we usually have three or four practices a week for two hours plus our sixth hour rehearsal,’’ said Debbie Drummond. Upcoming events for the band are a Jazz Band competition. The band will be competing there for the first time. There will be a symphonic band competition also.

Band — 27 Staging techniques add new style to performances Finishing her solo from Away in the Manger Linda Schutt listens to the audience reaction as she replaces the microphone. Capturing all the feelings of Christmas, the combined choirs added speaking parts to their Christmas messages. Bill Boyer, Mark Burguron, Linda Schutt, Kim True, Shelli Kurak, Paula Rix, Shelly Seczawa, Tina Gendron, and Pamm Stier complete the Love Christmas ensemble. Many hours of practice went into the chorus concert, which was held on December 19, 1985 in the Algonquin Junior High Auditorium. Directed by Mr. McMaken, the concert con- sisted of two groups from the high school, the Mixed Chorus, and the Rainbow Connection with additional help from the Junior High Algonquin Ensemble. “It takes about two mon- ths to get a good concert together — lighting, stage setting and about two hours for the perfor- mances, ' ’ said Patricia McBride Along with the night concert, the choirs per- formed at Pte. Tremble Elementary, Algonac Elementary, Fair Haven Elementary and Algon- quin Junior High. I Love Christmas was a feature at all of the concerts performed. That program brought a new twist to the traditional concerts, as all choirs worked together. The staging techniques helped capture a different feeling to the Christmas season. As Sharon McCoy stated: “I had fun do- ing I Love Christmas. First semester Mixed Chorus consisted of six- teen members and the Rainbow Connections consisted of four members. Such small groups made rehearsals go much smoother, but limited the type of songs the group could sing. A musical will be performed May 8, 1986. It’s called “Grapevine Connection” and deals with communication throughout the ages. Mix- ed Chorus and Rainbow Connection members will be performing the 45 minute show at Algonquin Junior High Auditorium. “Getting to work with more people and being able to do more than just sing will make Mixed Chorus a better class,” said Shelli Kurak. Being a member of a performing group demands a lot from each member. As Mark Burguron stated: “You need a good attitude and to think positively about the talent that you have.” n Mixed Chorus: Front Row: Bridgett Grinde, Jeanie Williams, Patricia McBride, Rainbow Connection: Front Row: Wendi Klier, Lisa Gamble.

With the constitution adopted two years ago, policies on attendance and work were strictly followed. This meant at times that student council membership changed and students were remov- ed and others added. Homecoming is one of the first major respon- sibilities of Student Council. They co-ordinate all the activities that week, plan the dance and purchase all necessary materials. Winter Wacky Week has been an opportuni- ty to honor the guys during the Basketball season. However, for the s ond year, the week was poorly supported b, students and council members. Outside of the dance which provided a good time for the 200 students attending, the rest of the events seem to be supported by only a few. Apathy remained a question at various points. “I think Student Council is good, but I also think some of the members could be a little bit more dedicated, not just a few people doing the work.” stated Martha Amama. Stacy Bellia, president of the Council, found her responsiblities varied. All through the year, she co-ordinated each committee to make sure that the work was being done. “I ' ve met a lot of people, I was able to experience the difficulties and rewards of being in charge,” Stacy stated reflecting on her job. Student participation and a great variety of activities remains a constant goal of student council membership. Adviser Ms. Broeder stated: “Throughout the year, they were con- stantly pushed to involve as many students as possible in the activities. We do n ot want to be considered an elite group, but rather one that works for the student body. Although there were problems at times, trying to get people in- volved and to learn responsibility remained a constant goal.” Lory Andros and Tina Yonaka participate in the discussion of Extra Curricular Activities and the policy for participation.

Creating Christmas cheer throughout the school, Amy Jacobs, Stacy Bellia and Tracy Kaatz arrived early one morning to decorate the traditional tree. Ornaments and decorations have been donated from school groups for use on the tree on an annual basis. The juniors sponsored Freedom Fair s evening concert. Although there were problems with the band being delayed and the concert goers having to wait 50 minutes for the concert to start, the students w ho attended felt that the wait was worthwhile. Student Council — 31 Second year member, Deana Hadden pins the membership colors on Tom Morrow. Induction welcomes new members With a new admissions policy. National Honor Society members were inducted in a special ceremony on January 13 at Gilbert Auditorium, Algonquin Junior High School. Previously, the policy had been a 3.5 gpa for juniors and a 3.2 gpa for seniors. By regulations from the national organization, the gpa now had to be standard for both juniors and seniors. This led to a great deal of controversy and a resulting commit- tee was set up. This committee consisted of representatives from all areas including students, parents, board members and community members. After debate and research, the group developed a point system. This enabled a student to be recognized in the area of scholarship and in the area of service. Gpa’s were allotted a specific number of points with involvement in school activities being worth points and references also being worth points. Featured speakers on January 14 included Dr. Bollin and Mr. Dodge from the Board of Educa- tion, Mrs. Basinski, Director of Adult Education and the student officers of the honor society. Look- ing at the components of membership, they spoke on the significance of the society as well as character, leadership, scholarship and service. Ms. Kathy Nist and Mrs. Marcia Wylie worked with the group as advisers. They helped organize the induction ceremony and helped the officers to plan activities. Reflecting on the change, honor society presi- dent, Jo Trumble stated: “I do not feel honor socie- ty (membership) will decrease, actually because of the change we may be able to get more rounded students.” Martin Davis stated: “I think it’s good to base judgement on more than your gpa because not all classes are as hard as others. ” With the start of new traditions, prospective honor society members began to look seriously as their involvement in all areas of school life. Using the candles Andy Chwan helps induct Sharon McCoy by passing on the symbolic lighting of the four qualities of h onor society membership. Honor society president Jo Trumble spoke to the group on the significance of leadership. As a second year member , Margaret Nelson welcomed Bill Gratopp to the society. 32 — National Honor Society National Honor Society : Front Rou : Jo Trumble, Laura Rollins, Cheri Gelaude, Tamara Tucker, Cheryl Lorence, Katie Moran, Amy Jacobs, Deana Hadden, Lori Stobar.

Arriving at 7:15, they worked to prepare the paper for an 8:00 a.m. distribution. After checking her work, Theresa Young finds she has no mistakes so far while typing the list of bylines for the homecoming issue. Double-checking and proofreading are esentials in any production. Paul Elliott concentrates to make sure the newspaper is set up right. “Stricter rules are being faced for the publica- tion of the newspaper,’ said Martha Amama. Since the staff has a new adviser, Mr. Dan Shafer, ' the staff has worked hard in a profes- sional manner,’ ’ said Cheryl Scott, co-editor of the Rat Review . Erick Senkmajer is also co- editor of the paper. Mr. Shafer was adviser of the paper from 1978 to 1982. Upon returning this fall, he became adviser again. “The first item to get across to the staff was that this was their newspaper and they should take pride in their work. They accepted the challenge quite well, and I feel the school has a positive feeling about the Rat Review .“ said Mr. Shafer. As the year progressed, the staff began to work at developing in depth features and repor- ting. According to Mr. Shafer, “In depth repor- ting allowed staff members to do more research and investigating. To develop her story on miss- ing persons, Lori Stobar spent four hours on the phone getting information.’’ Producing a publication provides many rewards. “When we receive the papers from the printing company, it is so rewarding to me to see the completed work,” said Sue Hankey. As the staff quickly discoverd “Producing a newspaper is a lot more work than people seem to realize to create a good paper,” said Tracy Shagena. 34 - N ewspaper Putting in extra effort, Keith McDonald sells the Homecoming issue at the Homecoming game against Cros-Lex.

Newspaper - 35 Re-writing is part of the research necessary to develop good copy. Michelle Berube uses the extensive file of yearbooks from other schools to help her add the creative spark. A December crisis of a defective camera found Rob Bums developing film quickly. The end result was three blank rolls of film which meant that those pictures had to be retaken. During the awards ceremony at Bowling Green. Bridgett Grinde, Jeanie Williams and Jennifer Leemhuis read the fudges comments. The ‘85 Remembrance received a first place. Co-ordinating all of the advertising is a challenging task for Patti Stier and Tracy Thomas. As a result of their efforts, the advertising total was the largest in many years. Choosing the color of the yearbook is a source of controversy. Ms. Broeder helps Michelle Berube, Rob Bums, Julie Avers, Helen Knowlton, Renee Martin, Shelli Kurak, and Tom Abel look at the various possiblities. 36 - Y earbook Deadlines dominate days to prepare ’86 Remembrance After all of the hard work, frustrating deadlines, lost copy and assorted computer hassles, the 1986 yearbook was finished. The ‘86 staff is almost entirely new, which meant that the staff sometimes experienced difficulty writing their copy and working on layouts. Time seemed to be an enemy of all staff members. Renee Martin stated, 1 do have time to write my story, but it takes the longest time to find information about the subject.” The color for the cover was the source of debate. After the cover committee researched the choices, the class talked at length with the help of yearbook representative, Sam Slis, and then chose the black and turquoise hot foil stamp combination. Yearbook editors, Jeanie Williams and Jennifer Leemhuis found their jobs a challenge. Jennifer stated that: “Deadlines are a top priority and meeting them is sometimes complicated. At times there is so much to do that 1 feel like I’m going to miss the deadline.” Jeanie and Jennifer spent a week in July at Michigan State University for indepth editorial training. They worked with Bruce Watterson from Little Rock, Arkansas. Jeanie commented, “This yearbook is going to be bet- ter than ever. On October 16, the yearbook staff and newspaper staff went to Bowling Green Univer- sity to attend the 33rd annual workshop and to accept the first place award from Great Lakes Interscholatic Press Association. The staff also recieved a First Place for the 1985 yearbook from National Scholastic Press Association. Looking at the total book, Ms. Broeder, ad- viser, commented: “For a staff that was brand new to yearbooks, they really care and have done an outstanding job. I think we are on our way to another winner.” Yearbook Staff: Front Roue Patti Stier, Kellie Robb, Jennifer Leemhuis, Jeanie Williams, Rachel Herod, DeAnna Benoit.

New NHS requirements Environmental concerns It all started about 15 years ago when Ontario en- vironmental officials an- nounced the discovery of mercury in the St. Clair river. Since then, there has been more discoveries, or let-out secrets. In 1970, fishing restrictions were in effect for the River District area. Fishing businesses felt the restric- tions when their profits came close to nothing. The restric- tion stated that fish could be caught, but not kept. Being fishermen caught fish with the intention to eat them, there weren’t many boats on the river. More discoveries of dangerous pollution in the river have led to serious in- vestigations involving Dow Chemical Canada. Divers have found leaks coming from the plant, which is located in Sarnia. Per- chloroethyline, or dry clean- ing fluid, is one of the most dangerous chemicals found in the river. On August 29,1985, there was report of a spill of dry cleaning fluid, which found itself at the water intakes at Wapole Island and Wallaceburg, Canada. Angry and concerned citizens began purchasing bottled water at an enormous rate. After several investiga- tions, accusations, and court cases, Dow Chemical Canada had been fined for their part 38 — Magazine Cleanup was hampered by the ice jams of early January. in the pollution. Clean-up ef- forts to remove the toxic blobs from the river bottom have not been 100% suc- cessful. Officials in Ontario have also reported that there are deposits on the river bot- tom that are leaking. As the investigations con- tinue, to find out who is re- sponsible and what can be done, citizens in the St. Clair river area wait for clean-up to continue when the weather permits. Setting a new grade point average (GPA) requirement wouldn’t seem to be that much of a task — until the opinions of National Honor Society members, Parent Ad- visory members, and others, clash into a web of disagreement. The conflict began when the National Headquarters of the NHS stated that Juniors and Seniors had to have the same GPA requirement to become a member. Last year, Juniors had to have a 3.5 GPA and Seniors had to have a 3.25. Unfortunately, NHS members and Parent Ad- visory Board members could not come to a compromise right away. NHS members felt a 3.5 GPA for everybody would be appropriate, while the P.A. Board felt a 3.3 GPA would be appropriate. NHS members felt that they weren’t being listened to, and that their opinions and reasons for their choice were being ignored. However, board members felt that a 3.25 would include more people who are on the borderline. Laura Rollins, who has a 3.83, answered back to that comment: “No matter where you set the standard, there will always be people on the borderline.” There are four categories that a student has to meet in order to become a NHS member: Scholarship, Leadership, Character, and Service. Jo Trumble, presi- dent of NHS, stated, “Scholarship has been the main category to enter, in Algonac, for a long time, but it’s only one o ut of four.” On November 1, 1985, a committee made up of peo- ple such as Dr. Ken Bollin, Jo Trumble, and Stacy Bellia, met to try to decide what the requirement should be. Bollin wanted a 3.20, Jo Trumble wanted a 3.5 or 3.4, and Stacy Bellia wanted something more moderate than a large jump from a 3.2 to a 3.5. The final decision came to a 3.3 GPA, which in Scholar- ship, is worth 10 points. Other points are achieved through the other categories. NHS adviser, Ms. Nist, stated, “some people wanted the GPA a little lower so that some kids who didn’t have a 3.5, but were active, could get in.” Unfortunately, there were many mixed feelings over the matter. Jo Trumble added, “it is very hard to judge what would be appropriate.” As the ice and high water continues to build , downtown Algonac finds the shoreline disappearing. The above scene is by the downtown riverfront fountain. Interesting tidbits Senioritis When underclassmen think of seniors, they think, “Wow! I can’t wait!” But sometimes, being a senior isn’t all what it’s cracked up to be, especially when senioritis attacks. Parents always tell their teenagers, “School is the best part of life! When you’re out, you’ll surely miss it.” However, students can’t verify that until after gradua- tion. Sometimes, it’s kind of hard to believe that “school is the best part of life.” Many seniors just can’t wait to graduate. They have put a lot into school, but now is when some start to slow down. Sleeping in class doesn’t look good. Teachers and counselors try to warn them, “Don’t fall behind now, it won’t look good on your col- lege applications.” Unfor- tunately, some seniors just can’t understand that. Skipping classes, or the whole day, is another pro- blem. Grades begin to drop as seniors lose all enthusiasm to even show up. It becomes very difficult to complete an assignment of even think about a test. Usually, once a senior is plagued with senioritis, there’s no turning back. However, there are cures for this disease. Just show up for school. Think about what your college applications are going to look like. All you have to do is hang in there for a little while longer. Performances are a key element of the music program. Linda Schutt, Shelli Kurak, Paula Rix, Shel Seczawa, Cheri Polly, and Ann Dobby keep the audience entertained during a concert. 1984 remains required reading Another year passes and another senior class reads 1984 in Mr. Holmes’ College Composition classes. George Orwell’s 1984 has been required reading for several years at Algonac High School. It is also re- quired reading at several col- leges and universities across the country. Orwell’s 1984 deals with the future, but it’s not a good picture. Orwell wrote 1984 as being a situation that could really happen. People are divided among three classes, but all of them are ruled by “Big Brother.” Everybody is supposed to “love Big Brother” and if they do not, they will surely get caught, for there are such people as the “Thought Police.” The book centers around one man, who is a “middle class” member. This man, Winston Smith, doesn’t love Big Brother, nor does he want to be a part of that world any longer. Orwell’s 1984 has reciev- ed much attention for its meaning and the message it tries to get across. George Orwell stresses that 1 984 isn’t a prediction, but a warn- ing of what could really hap- pen if precautions weren’t taken to avoid it. “Most people think the book is a prediction, and they like predictions. They like to see what comes true,” com- mented Mr. Holmes. Oral presentations give Laura Rollins and Lisa Avers a chance to share their research. Musical plans excite chorus A new year brought a new project to the Algonac choirs, which consists of the Mixed Chorus and the Rainbow Connection. The groups per- formed a musical called “The Grapevine Connection’’, which is about communication. Some students had speak- ing parts, while others sang in the chorus, or danced on the “computer screen.” For many of the students, this was a big step from the tradi- tional concerts, which usually involve some small han d mo- tions, or a few dance steps. The musical consisted of a typical school situation: some students “forgetting” to do their homework. Those students are taken on a trip into the history of com- munication, which is the sub- ject for the reports that the students “forgot” to do. The musical involved five characters, but every chorus member was a part of the production. Much time and work was put into the musical as scenery and costumes had to be made and dance routines had to be perfected. The chorus also had their hands full with memorizing about nine songs that were a large portion of the musical. Mr. McMaken, Choir Director, had the most dif- ficult of all jobs: choosing students for the speaking parts. Many members tried out for the five speaking parts. Mr. McMaken also had to choose understudies for the parts. Prior to when the musical was performed, Mr. McMaken commented, “Hopefully, a musical pro- duction will expose more students to singing and en- courage them to participate in chorus.” Magazine — 39 Extras . . Backtrack ... 85 events Performers made tremen- dous use of their talent in 1985 with concerts and benefits to support major needs such as in Africa and the farmers in America. USA for Africa was one of the largest fund-raising groups put together. Forty-five of America’s hottest singing stars gathered in a recording studio and raised more that 37 million dollars for the hungry in Africa. Other organizations such as Live Aid , which was put together by Bob Geldof, Farm Aid , which kept coun- try singing star Willie Nelson busy, and Hear ' N Aid , a hard-rock group, plus many more, raised a total of 137 million dollars to be put to good use. Big singing stars, Bruce Springsteen and Madonna, left America in a frenzy with their continuing music. Unfortunately, 1985 had more than its fair share of plane crashes. One particular aircraft disaster, involving a Delta Airlines jet, left 137 people dead in Dallas, Texas on August 2. Another crash in Newfoundland left 250 American soldiers dead. In 1985, the most popular TV shows were The Cosby Show and Miami Vice. Viewers found The Cosby Show to be not only funny, but sensitive in family- orientated situations. Miami Vice, being an action-packed drama, did the music industry some good, too, as the Theme to Miami Vice and You Belong to the City shot to the top of the charts. 1985 saw the death of many notable people in- cluding Sam Erwin, Yul Bryn- ner, Samantha Smith, Orson Welles, Margaret Hamilton, Karen Ann Quinlan, and Rock Hudson. Greg Wolford, Tina Yonaka, Beth Beres, and Jerry Doan “boogie” with the tunes at the WWW dance. Musical Assembly Assemblies looked at entertainment during the year. The majority of assemblies revolved around games or spirit. However, in November, the Juniors spon- sored Freedom Fair. The following Thursday, November 7, they returned for an evening concert. Students from the high school and junior high arrived early to get a good seat. Thus the hall was beginning to fill by 7:00 for the 7:30 concert. Unfortunately at 6:45, the group called Mr. Gilbreath to explain that they were delayed. Students had to then wait until 7:25 for the group to ar- rive and begin setting up. The result was mass confusion as no one wanted to give up their place in line for a seat in the cafeteria. Dances return every two weeks Looking for a chance to have fun, unwind, and meet people — dances returned to AHS with gusto this fall. “The turn around in dances was about three years ago,’’ said Student Council Adviser Ms. Broeder. “Up to that point, students didn’t care about dances, Homecoming or Prom. Then, unexpectedly, the ticket sales went up and popularity con- tinued to increase. Now, we can even look at dances as a fund raiser.” Thanks to Mrs. Cobb and her group of interested parents, dances have been held every two weeks with the profits going to organiza- tions in the school. The dances are attended by and average of 250 students for each dance. Mrs. Cobb helped chaperone the Homecoming Dance. She and other parents noticed how much fun the students had and decided to work with the students on a regular basis. Students enjoy the dances as they are reluctant to leave when 12:00 rolls around. “I really found these fun. As long as they remain fun, I will continue to attend them,” said Cathy Coomer. Also, a part of the success are the d.j.’s, Kevin Fenton, George Burgess. They went out of their way to purchase albums, lights, and other things to help create an at- mosphere of fun. Richard Wilhelm, ’88, began working with the d.j.’s on a regular basis. He explained: “We do enjoy doing the dances. At times, money has to be put out to keep up on albums, lights and other things. Some people think there is nothing to being a d.j., but when I started 1 discovered how involved it was.” The Clay Township recall set off tempers and kept the community very involved in the issue of Chief Trombly. On September 5, voters recalled the Clay Township board. 40 — Magazine Interesting tidbits Sixth hour means additional staff added Computer Use and Soft- ware is a new class taught by Mrs. Wylie.

The students are usually polite and courteous.” Mr. Schlaack demonstrates an experiment on electricity with the help of Joe Pascoe. The end of 1985 and the start of 1986 brought severe flooding to Algonac and Marine City residents with homes on the water. Sunday, December 29, residents reported flooding and left their homes when conditions were no longer bearable. The water levels were approximately eight in- ches over flood stage. In Algonac alone, 100 homes were evacuated. An ice jam in the St. Clair River area near Russell Island also contributed to area flooding. Citizens with homes on the small islands projecting from M-29 in Algonac were forced to park their cars on the highway and walk to their homes. Captain’s II, a popular restaurant, was forced to close down with two feet of icy water in their dining room. There was no word on when Captain’s would re-open. On New Year’s Eve, many of the evacuated residents returned home, some only to find skating rinks in their liv- ing rooms. Damaged carpet, furniture and broken pipes were also on their list of “flood dilemnas”. Unfortunately, the flooding is expected to continue through the spring. Area residents try to prepare for the high waters while waiting to see what happens. The flood waters gave students an extended Thanksgiving vacation as the power outages and water on M-29, closed school on Mon- day, December 2. Concern led 1,000 area residents to meet with government officials in January at Algonquin Junior High. The questions of ar- tificially controlling the lakes and the problems of extend- ed shipping seasons were discussed at length. Although problems were not solved, in- formation was available for residents to begin to see some of the causes of the problem. Magazine — 41 Come summer, it is normally a scenic turnout.

Par- ticipating in the group on their free time were: Robin Ford, Julie Connelly, Troy Trumble, Chris Kazor, Andy Gordon, Jenny Rochon, Henry Amama, Bill Humes, Erick Senkmajer and Jon VanOast. Teen support Counselors from Downriver Medical Center, Bea Medvecik and Amy Col- lison worked wtih Mr. McLeod to help begin a Teen Support Group. The group meets every other week dur- ing lunch hours. It is volun- tary with no pre-registration required. The placement of the group on lunch hours has pro- vided some problems with student turnout. With suffi- cient turnout, the group wlll be able to provide a chance for students to meet and talk with the counselors while en- suring confidentiality. Science Olympics On March 1, 1986, AHS’s Advanced Science Society plus other students attended the Science Olympiad. This was the first time that students from here attended this competition. Sponsored by the US Ar- my Reserve Officers’ Train- ing Corps, the Olympiad was held at Mott Community Col- lege in Flint. AHS students participated in competitive events such as the Pen- tathelon, Password, Trajec- tory, Titration, Science Bowl and Computer Programming. Some of the events involved just answering science related questions, while others involved building devises such as catapults. Mr. Sabo stated: “This Olympiad should open new doors for the perspective of science at Algonac.” Advanced Science Society entered a float into the Homecoming parade.

In the Algonac Community Theatre’s production of The Dining Room , an occurance like this was common place. This was a complicated play that dealt with many different issues; all set in the same din- ing room, only with unrelated characters in each scene. This was ACT’s Spring production. Earlier in the year, the comedy Arsenic and Old Lace was presented. In this play, two old ladies would do old men charity by inviting them to rent a room from them and then poison them. Then their weird nephew comes to live and things get very exciting. Community Theater ACT has many things in the works for future projects. In the fall of ’86, a melodrama is planned. This is something totally new to the actors and directors in the group. This show could be a special treat for Algonac’s younger people. Theatre can be a great deal of fun. In the Algonac Community Theatre, people young and old can get together and learn about ac- ting and themselves. In the ACT, many stu dents at AHS have enjoyed both being in and helping with shows. The community theatre is a great way for new actors actresses to get a start in performing. 42 — Magazine Interesting tidbits No one’s life is ordinary Each person’s life makes a dif- ference ... the words and thoughts filled the media after the tragic crash of the shuttle, Challenger. The news filtered slowly through the halls on January 28, 1986. Ms. Nist had the tv in the library on wat- ching the launch. Students stopped in during their lunch breaks. As hor- rified spectators watched, the shuttle exploded. Silently, teachers and students told each other. Secretly, it seemed as if everyone wished that they would find the astronauts and the nightmare wouldn’t be true. Each launch of the shuttle carried a degree of danger. H owever, due to the safe record of previous launches, one assumed that this launch would go off without problems. The excite- ment centered around Christa McAuliffe who had been chosen as the First Teacher in Space. The Teacher in Space program had captured the interest of many Marina Display With the plans for a new marina behind the Chris Craft property, Mr. Beauregard from Colony Marine con- tacted Mr. Ford who con- tacted Mr. Musson to help develop a scale model for the proposed marina project. Colony Marine purchased the land in Algonac for a new marina site. Six of Mr. Musson’s students — Jason teachers. Mr. Taylor was one of the teachers who applied for the pro- gram. His reaction to the day’s events echoed the feelings of many: “Like everyone, 1 felt total shock. However, when I applied 1 understood the risk. Given the op- portunity, I would apply again. It’s been a dream of mine since childhood. President Reagan’s comments were directed in part to the children who were learning the hard way about the risks of exploration. He spoke of the role of pioneers from the new world explorers to the set- tlers of the west to the frontier of space. Perhaps, McAuliffe’s greatest lesson for each one of us was best stated in the Detroit Free Press “no one’s life is ordinary.” As we recover from the tragedy, the legacy remains one of always reaching for dreams. Adkins, Clinton Viger, Jay Stager, Fat Martin, Dennis White, and Dennis McGuire — spent five weeks builing the display which was displayed at the Boat Show at Cobo Hall. When the Boat Show was over, the four foot by five foot model went to the marina office. The display was also aired on Channel 2 News. European travel In June of 1985, two groups of Algonac High School students traveled to Europe. Students either went with Mr. Baker’s group or Mr. Trotter’s group. Mr. Baker’s group consisted of 21 people, including himself. Mr. Trotter’s group was quite smaller, as only 10 people went. Mr. Baker’s group, which left on June 19, was the first to go. They landed at London Heathrow Airport, claimed their baggage, and the journey began. They toured such places as Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, London Tower, and the Thames River, which are all in England. They also toured many other places in many other countries. Mr. Trotter’s group left two weeks after Mr. Baker’s group. Altogether, the two groups visited London, Paris, France, Switzerland, Ger- many, Austria, and Luxem- bourg. The students found many differences between the United States and Europe. One difference was driving on the left side of the road, instead of the right. Another difference was the hotel accomodations. Students found no bathrooms in any of the rooms. Altogether, the two groups shared a once-in-a-lifetime ex- perience that also proved to be educational. Cheryl Scott, who was a member of Mr. Trotter’s group, stated, “it was the greatest and most educational experience in my entire life.” • -IT. ' -tsSs - jac: Performances for each half-time were first class. Awards Awards are a key part of many programs. Sports teams continued to send their participants to regional and state competitions. Wrestlers and Cross Country runners competed in state tournaments. Rat Review staff members began the journey to awards with entering stories in local competitions. Lori Stobar’s story on missing persons was entered into a number of competitions. Remembrance staff members continued to boast of awards. Again, the book took first place regionally and nationally. At the Solo and Ensemble Festival, many band members received first divi- sion awards. Those in that group are: Greg Pritchard, Kelly Connors, Dena Ford, Angela Chartier, Sheila Davis, Laura DiVergilio, Alison White, Kent Yaney, Bill Humes and Angela Grabowski. Receiving second division ratings were: Bill Biland, Robin Ford, Kelly Connors, Alison White, Monica Stahl, Bill O’Grady, Ruth Mills, Lynn Fisher and Matt South. Magazine — 43 Enthusiasm dominates restored sports program Returning excitement — the sports program looked at re-building winn- ing traditions. These changes begin with strong junior high and jv programs. Cross country set the school on fire as they competed all season as a leader in the S.C.A.L. Basketball found itself in the midst of a strong S.C.A.L. With evenly mat- ched teams, each game abounded with excitement and thrills. J.V. Volleyball kept an undefeated streak until early February when a strong Richmond team won. A ski trip took place on February 17 through the All Sports Club. Students organized and worked with fund raisers to get the All Sports Club off the ground. Sports Boosters remained active with concession stands and the fall sports program. The core group of parents supported the team at every contest and kept the traditions strong. Wrestling continued to develop in strength. At an exciting meet, the wrestlers captured the Blue Water Classic Tournament on February 1 . A key element in the new en- thusiasm is athletic director, Mr. Jim Szur. Through his endless energy, the conern of making sports come alive was evident. Individuals learned the age old lessons of teamwork and sportsman- ship. Even facing defeat, team members didn’t give up, but kept looking to the next game. Enthusiasm, concern, committment — learning skills — building Muskrat Pride — there’s no stopping us now.

Varsity Football: 46 Coach Allen provides instruction and encouragement to Mike Brockley during the Cros Lex game, which was also Homecoming. Coach Allen took over working with the team in early October. Sports Division — 45 Strong opponents provide Varsity challenges Each year th e Muskrats faced a strong SCAL. The strong competition and lack of freshmen and junior high experience put the players in a situa- tion of going out and competing but not being able to win. “Our Muskrats were a gutsy group. I was impressed with their efforts. Those who stayed w ' ith it are players who will be winners,’ ’ stated Mr. Szur . After the Marine City game on September 27, Coach Tom Withers- poon stepped down with Coach Bill Koltz assuming leadership as interim head coach. He was assisted by Coach Allen who moved up from the freshmen team. Cros Lex was the best game, according to Coach Koltz. “The players did an outstanding job. A mix up with the officials is what cost us the game.” Recognized as most valuable player was Kurt Gilbert. Strong seniors were: Dan Roland, Jeff Poosch, Tony Meldrum, Eric Parent, Kurt Heyza, and Doug McMullen . Taking a quick glance, Jeff Lang concentrates on the distance of his pass. Running for a few extra yards, Eric Parent waits for an opening. 46 - V arsity Football Varsity Football : From Row: Jason Reams, Kurt Heyza, Eric Parent, Jeff Poosch, Tony Meldrum, Rob Rager, Kurt Gilbert, Girl Reams.

Scott LaMee fights his way through the Armada defense in a hard fought game on October 3 1 . This was the last game of the season. 8:00 a.m. - September 12 - as students settled into their first hour class, Mr. Ford began the announcements with a description of “Big A1 Biland scooping up the ball and running 46 yards for a touchdown, after Jeff Swan knocked the ball loose from the Utica quarterback” in the junior varsity defeat of Utica 6-0. Richmond was commonly acknowledged as the best game. According to Coach Shafer, " We played a tough game and scored two touchdowns in the second half to win.” This game was also the first league victory for the team. Traveling to Brown City proved to add exitement. As a result of a scheduling mix- up, the team arrived for a 4:00 game which started at 7:30. They spent four hours sitting in Brown City High School waiting to play. ”1 give a lot of credit to Kenny Kent, Brown City sports adviser. He really helped us out. commented Mr. Szur. Most valuable players included Scott Schumacher who received an award for a defensive end and was the best runner with 680 yards this season. A1 Biland received an award for defense. He made 43 tackles, 67 assists and lead the team in both categories. The most improved player was Dave Cope and the most spirited award was given to Rich Wilhelm. Junior Varsity Football - 49 Successful season highlights new Freshman football program With the addition of extracurricular sports, freshman football has returned. Coaches Mr. Clyne and Mr. Allen taught the team the fundamentals of football, which led them to build a strong defensive team. Most of the freshmen felt that just learning the “basics” and “rules” of football was one of the hardest things they ever had to do. “Sticking together with good, strong ef- fort made us have a strong season,” replied Dave Benke. The whole team working together brought good results -four out of six games were victories. Rob Crampton added, “Three to four hours a day after school was what made our team successful.” A game against Richmond proved to be the highlight of the season. Algonac defeated them 45-0. Although Marysville defeated Algonac, the Muskrats put up a good fight which resulted in a close game. “We tried our hardest and had great team spirit. Also, a lot of good coaching led us to a victorious season,” replied Steve Moran. Throughout the fall, the victories of the football team added enthusiasm to a sports program. With the skills and training ac- complished by the addition of the freshmen team and also the addition of a junior high program, Algonac can look to return as a sports power. As team members finished their season, they acknowledged the importance of the discipline. According to Brad Golembiewski part of the success was due to “practice four hours a day every day to become a good team.” “Overall,” according to Chad Smith, “the success was a result of a good offense and a good defense also a good coach who knew w ' hat he was talking about..” Dave Benke throws a pass to Brian Malik for a touchdown.

At times, the team experienced problems with consistency. “Everyone had their good days, but we could never get everyone to do well on the same day.” said Coach Jackson. Two strong wins against Marine City on September 17 and September 23 helped en- courage the team against St. Clair, the league co-champions. The golf team played a close match, losing by only five strokes. At the league tournament, on October 7, the team tied for third place. At this tourna- ment, Andy Chwan was low man with an 18 hole score of 88. This enabled Andy to make the All League Second Team. Ed Manzo had a 95, John Murphy and Fred Rollins had 98 s and Rob Swanson had 100. Andy also received Honorable Mention, All Area.

Fall changes bring Girls Tennis For the first time, a girls tennis team was added to the roster of sports at AHS. The team is partially a result of a move within the SCAL to develop a girls league. Accor- ding to Mr. Szur, athletic director, “There had to be at least three teams from this area to participate in the sport. We qualified with four teams in this area. ' 1 Tennis was coached by Mr. Jeff VanDis from Algonquin. He played 1 singles at Central Michigan University and taught ten- nis for seven years. He was “pleased with the progress of the girls in the first year of competition. " According to Robin Ford, “I thought we, as a team, had a good season, because we had a lot of beginners who put a lot into it and got some results as the season progressed. " Regionals were held in the St. Clair Shores school district. Lee Ann Harden felt that this experience is good because “you get to meet and compete with new people. " The team record, 3-2, was a result of their two victories against Richmond, 5-2 at Richmond and 4-3 at home, and a loss against St. Clair. Marine City was also one of the victories, Algonac beat them 5-2. Swinging to keep the ball in play, Lee Ann Harden watches her opponent.

Tim Davis strided to a 1st place finish at the SCAL league meet with a new school record time for 5,000 meters of 16:22. A.J. Hopkins, Joe Biland, Rob Busuttil and Mike Delange all finished in the top ten helping the Muskrats tie St. Clair for 1st place. A tie breaker rule gave St. Clair the ti- tle handing 2nd place to the Muskrats. A 1st place trophy was won at the Class B championship at Harbor Beach Invitational and the boys team went on to win the Maryville Invitational and the runner up trophy at the Port Huron Invitation where Tim Davis ran away with first place. Tim Davis was named most valuable run- ner and also achieved 1st team All Blue Water Area and 1st team All League. He placed 4th at the State Regional and qualified himself to the state finals finishing 21st. Teammates Mike Delange and Joe Biland were named to the 2nd team All League and Second team All Blue Water Area team. A.J. Hopkins and Rob Busuttil were both named to the Second Team All League and Honorable Mention to the All Blue Water Area Team. Due to lack of involvement, girls Cross Country team ended with Michele May and Lori Stobar finishing a strong individual season. “Running under pressure helps me to push more and prove to myself I can do it,” stated Rob Busuttil. - — ALGONAC OPPONENT 15 ..

Field Hockey celebrates 20th anniversary strong season results Ending a great season with 2 wins, 2 ties and 2 losses against such teams as University Liggett was a very rewarding experience for the Field Hockey team and Coach Mrs. Egl- ington. Mrs. Eglinton has played field hockey since 1945, and started coaching in 1965 when she founded field hockey here at Algonac, “There is a special comeraderie among field hockey players,” Mrs. Eglinton stated.“They have fun playing as a team also.” Being the only team in this area, Algonac has to travel most of their season which runs September and October. Traveling doesn’t bother the team, and some of the team members actually look forward to the bus rides. The one ride everyone looks forward to is tournaments which are held at Kingswood and runs all day long. Most of the players on this year’s team are new ones. There are still six seniors on the team this year out of a total of nineteen. Field hockey according to Coach Egl- ington and the players is a very exciting sport, and Mrs. ”E” would like to see more girls try out next year.

Wendi Klier, Gretchen Humes, and Jana Taylor are there for assistance. They pushed themselves to the limit “Lack of players and experience has really affected us deeply,’ ' said Cheryl Lorenz, as varsity basketball began the season with one senior, one junior, three sophomores and two freshmen. This meant that the girls who did play had to put forth extra effort. “It’s very frustrating to see the girls work so hard and not get the satisfaction of winning because there aren’t enough girls to play,” explains Coach Kim Busuttil. From nine girls in the beginning of the season to six girls at the end of the season, the team had their share of ups and downs. They had injuries such as Cheryl Lorenz’s pulled tendon. There were also the problems of lack of experience and lack of players. “We weren’t able to play hard because we couldn’t afford to get fouls,” captain Paula Weaver commented. The individual members took the challenges seriously and continued to provide competition to their opponents. The dedication is echoed by Coach Busut- til who stated: “Every player on this team has a lot of character. This enabled them to keep going when they were totally worn out by the end of the game.” Some of the players strongest games were against Almont and Marysville. “It was my highest scoring game and I pushed myself harder than ever,” Jana Taylor stated. Captain Paula Weaver’s best game was against Marysville. “I made 16 points and had over 20 rebounds. We lost by only one point and everyone was doing things right.’’ Coach Busuttil feels that the second Marysville game was also a high point. “We lost to them by 19 points the first time and then the second time around, we lost by one point in a hard fought contest.” Kelly Ponke, on the floor, struggles with three opponents while trying to pas s the ball to Paula Weaver. Raquel Tuma fights off an opponent while racing down the court to score. Girls Basketball - 61 With height a distinct advantage, Dennis Tuzinowski reaches over his opponents for the rebound.

Varsity provides Strong competition in SCAL Starting strong, Muskrat cagers completed in a strong SCAL. With the Richmond, St. Clair and Marine City strong teams as com- petition, the team put forth a strong effort in each game. The season began with an exciting win over Capac, followed by another stong game against Fraser. According to Coach Jackson, among the outstanding games are: “our first game with Capac because we had a lot of intensity. Our first game against Cros Lex at Croswell was a great defensive effort.” In each of these games, a different player was leading scorer indicating a well balanced team. In fact, Coach Jackson stated, “the biggest obstacle has been trying to find play- ing time for twelve kids who deserve to play. Our biggest problem has been a lack of bulk to play against people a lot bigger than we are.” In a thrilling game on January 7, Varsity defeated Anchor Bay. This followed their win against Almont. Scores were way out ahead of two last side teams, Madison Heights, Madison, and St. Anne’s. They were also successful in defeating Marysville the first time, but ran into problems the second time they played Marysville. Scores were way out ahead of two east side teams, Madison Heights, Madison, and St. Anne’s. They were also successful in defeating Marysville the first time. Others felt that Richmond was their most difficult. “They would always keep coming at you, so you couldn’t let up at all,” stated Eric Parent. Determination and potential were very strong with the Varsity team. However, players also felt that the support of their coach, Mr. Jackson was very important. Ac- cording to Andy Petrovich, “when we were down from losing, he talked and cheered us up.” The final tournament game provided ex- citement and a heart breaking loss by one point to Richmond after a controversial call by the referee. “The tournament game with Richond was our best game, even though we lost by one point. Everyone played hard, gave it everything they had and we could feel good about how we played,” said Coach Jackson. ALGONAC OPPONENT 66 . . . Capac 59 59 ... 47 53 ... South Lake .... 57 71 . . .

Junior Varsity sets record In strong season Looking at a team with one of the best JV records in 10 years, Muskrats provided potential competition for each opponent. Going into the last part of the season, they were a league leader with a 9-1 record (SCAL), 16-4 overall. Some players felt that their most difficult game was against Richmond, at Richmond. Bill Brownell commented, “We were behind, but we made free throws and won the game. " Teammates attribute teamwork and cooperation to part of their success. A strong bench was definately helpful to some. Bill Brownell added, “we had the best bench in the league and they worked very hard in practice.” Individuals helped round out the team. Pat Fett was leading scorer throughout the season with 16.7 points per game. Fred Rollins was also a leading scorer with 9.2 points per game. Bill Brownell and Fred Rollins were good rebounders. Matt Nowicki provided superior defense and Mike Stubbs was a good ball handler. Mike Craig, Mike Humes and Jeff Koepke all provided solid play. Overall, JV offense came out with 52.6 points per game and defense had 42.6 points per game. Coach Greenwood added, “outstanding season and very, very satisfying.” Junior Varsity Basketball: Front Row: Mike Stubbs, Matt Nowicki, Mike Humes Back Row: Coach Greenwood, Jeff Fett, Bill Brownell, Jeff Koepke, Bob Shaffer, Fred Rollins, Brian Knapp, Dennis Roland, Darrin Engels.

Freshmen take To the courts Learning the fundamentals, freshmen basketball players developed strength as individuals and as a team. Despite the fact that basketball is new to some of the players, the team felt that they did well. “Everyone improved by the end of the season and everyone scored,” commented Troy Trumble. With great amounts of teamwork and enthusiasm, players began the season with an opener against Almont. Dave Worden helped lead the team. As effort became a necessity with the team, the first league game against Richmond was a thriller. Dave Benke led the scoring in this game that ended in a victory for Algonac 49-33. Ted Stager was the leading rebounder in the game against Armada, where AHS won 47-23. Of all the games played, the team and Coach Young felt the high point of the season was coming back and defeating Marine City after losing to them at home on January 13. On February 13, AHS defeated them in overtime. They became the only league team to beat Marine City. The players agreed that the first game against Marine City was their weakest. Steve Moran felt that the reason for that was the team was “really over confident”. They also felt that their second game against Marine City was their strongest. Although the team did begin the season well, Coach Yeung felt “the team played extremely well and they really hit their stride during the second half of the season.” Coach and peer support was important to the players. Joe Pascoe commented, “Coach was very important — he was the center of all our team cooperation. ” — 1 ALGONAC OPPONENT :52 .. . . . Almont 42 49 . . . . W. Lincoln 67 62 . ... Almont 47 49 . . .

Led by new coach, Jim Morisette, the team placed well in each meet. Probably, the biggest problem was that they were not able to fill all the weight classes, which led to forfeits in some matches. “It is one of the best seasons AHS has h ad in ye ars. We all worked hard and strived for the top. Nobody gave up and everyone tried their best no matter what.” said Glen Adams. Individuals provided a great deal of strength. Six wrestlers are over 500 %. The Blue Water Classic Tournament on February 1 led the team to a first place finish in a close match (135 1 2 — 134 1 2) against Anchor Bay. A1 Biland was named outstanding wrestler at this tournament. According to Coach Morisette, “We just keep getting better and better. I remember when I was wrestling for Anchor Bay that Algonac never got it together until the end of the season. And that’s what we are doing this season (peak- ing) just in time for districts.” Records were set by many individuals. A1 Biland broke his own record of consecutive wins (39-0) and his record of pins (27). He won the Macomb County Championship three years in a row. He was also named MVP at the Macomb Tournament, Sandusky Tournament and Blue Water Classic. A1 also placed first at districts and regionals and advanced to state competi- tion. He also took 2nd place in Class B State Finals. Glen Adams remained unbeaten in 22 mat- ches. For the second year, he was an all area selection. Through his success at regionals and districts, he advanced to state competition. Glen placed 6th at Class B State Finals. Keith Norman came back from injuries win- ning 15 in a row. He placed fourth in the district competition which advanced him to the regional. Junior Kurt Gilbert found his wrestling much improved taking first in Avondale and League meets. He placed 4th in the districts. Mike Brockley continued to improve placing first in the Muskrat Invitational and SCAL meet and second in the Blue Water Classic, Anchor Bay and Bethesada Tournaments. Rookie Joe Biland brought his record of 25- 14 to help build team strength. Many players were recognized for honors in- cluding: Mike Brockley as Most improved wrestler, Glen Adams and A1 Biland as outstanding wrestlers. The following recognition was given to team members: Times Herald, All League: A1 Biland, Keith Norman, Glen Adams, Mike Brockley and Kurt Gilbert.

Previously it had been two out of three. This enabled the team to provide strong competiiton and play indepth. The change was a result of a league vote. “This seemed to work out quite well since it offered the players more court experience” said Coach Eglinton. With a well balanced team, the girls stayed in each game playing well against their opponents. According to Coach Eglinton, “The team ended their season fourth in the league standings. There were several close matches in which they came up on the short side of the score. The team practiced hard and played hard but inconsistency plagued them throughout the season.” With the balance, individual players continued to provide strength. Kim Kasperowicz is a strong server. Her play in the Cros Lex game on January 8 helped the team to victory. Kim served 2 1 points. Pam Granica was also a strong force in this game with excellent spiking and a strong defensive game. In a close game against Marysville, Lisa Gamble and Tina Kowalski led the serv- ing. Tina was the leading spiker with 13 spikes, 4 of them kills. Kristin Taylor also helped lead the team in a strong game against Richmond. She was recognized for her effective spik- ing and backcourt play. Margaret Nelson helped pace the team to victory with strong spiking against Marine City.

Junior Varsity captures irst place Strong consistent play made JV a force to be reckoned with in the SCAL. Bringing victory home was common. In a game with St. Clair on February 19, the girls beat St. Clair enabling them to share first place with Richmond. As the girls worked with Coaches Laura Sharrow and Robin Kodet, their mastery of the fundamental became evident. Defeating Cros Lex on January 8, Robin Ford led the JV attack by ser- ving all 15 points in the First game. Marysville fell victim to the JV squad on February 12. Tina Chwan served 14 points in the first game. Marysville also met with defeat on January 27. P.J. Pelletier was the leading server. The experience and consistent play prepared the girls to become a dominant force in the league. Team strength was a key element. According to Raquel Tuma, “Team spirit was strong. You always had your teammates screaming for you.’’ The season had many exciting moments. “The first game against Rich- mond was great. We really showed each other how good we could play by beating Richmond (last year s champs).” The strength built throughout the year prepared the girls to be a domi- nant force in the league. “We practiced the things we didn’t do well on in the game, even though we won. It helped because by working harder on those things, we did better in the next game,” said Martha Humes.

Cheerleaders promote spirit building Always smiling, getting the crowd involved and enthused — cheerleaders added sparkle to each game. However, cheerleading is not all glitter. Nerve wracking tryouts begin the journey to the cheerleading squad. Then there are numerous practices to learn the cheers and to learn to work together as a squad. This meant after school practices and then games twice a week. Fitting in homework and a social life pro- vided some challenges. Behind those smiles, each girl brings dif- ferent goals to the role of spirit builder. Most joined because they thought it would be an ex- citing experience. However, the first hurdle was learning to perform in front of crowds. As Nicole Licari stated one the challenges involved in cheerleading was ‘to build up the courage to go out in front of crowds.’ Junior Varsity : Front Row: Lynn Richardson, Ann Kmetz, Tina Yonaka.

All Sports Club organizes activities All Sports Club is a continua- tion of the Varsity Club which disbanded two years ago. It is advised by Mr. Szur and in- cluded all grades and participa- tion in all sports. “The purpose of the All Sports Club is to raise funds to supplement the sports teams. The way we are planning to do it is by selling old football jerseys, spirit buttons, stickers and also to get kids re-involved in sports. I also want to see the kids enjoy themselves.” stated adviser Mr. Szur. Unless someone wants the job, Mr. Szur will remain ad- viser during all the sports seasons. Officers are: Stacy Bellia, president, Tony Meldrum, vice president, Tina Yonaka, secretary and Rob Ber- nards treasurer. A concern is the lack of stu- dent enthusiasm and people getting involved helping out with and on the sports teams. Mr. Szur is trying to get sports activities off “the back burner again”, because kids didn’t know from one year to another if we would have a specific team. If enough money is raised, they may go on a field trip to help spark enthusiasm. That will definately be an extra as the main goal is to put any money raised back into the athletic clubs, sports banquets to show recognition and support for what the kids have accomplish- ed throughout the season.

Equestrian Team: Cindy Sygit, Donna Calcaterra, Cherie Fisher, Kathleen McLane, Michelle Apigo, Lynn Fisher Riders compete in area competitions Event though the Equestrian team is made of only four peo- ple this year, they had an ex- cellent season. Competing were: Lynn Fisher, Kathleen McLane, Michelle Apigo, and Cherie Fisher. Coaches were: Mrs. McLane and Mrs. Fisher. Besides competitions, the team practices two or three times a week and have meetings to discuss what they will be do- ing at the meets. There were three meets, two weeks apart, beginning in September. Competitions are against six other schools. A current controversy is the situation of credit for par- ticipating in this activity. At this point, they are the only extracurricular sport that does not receive the credit. With the number participating, they almost did not have a team this year. According to Cherie Fisher: “We took the lesser of the two evils, you could say.” (Being able to have a team ver- sus not receiving the credit.) According to Mr. Ford, he didn’t think that the students were that interested in the credit issue. Being on the equestrian team takes a lot of time, patience and a lot of practice to get to a meet and do well. Part of the success this year was due to the fact that the horses and riders work- ed well which helped the team place at the meets. 76 — Sidelights Hockey club forms and competes with area schools Hockey at A.H.S.! Something brand new with Mr. Sanders as coach. The basis of the club started with a conver- sation between Erick Senkmajer and Mr. Shafer. There were no organized tryouts, Mr. Sanders just used word of mouth and the first fourteen people that came in showing interest were placed on a list and called for practice. determination to learn. What they lack in skill and ex- perience, they overcome with effort.” Building a hockey team is a challenge. As Mr. Sanders stated: “Hockey is an expensive sport. We have struggled to come up with uniforms and the money to pay for ice time and refs.

As the season continued, the team continued to develop strength. According to Mr. Sanders, “The team has strong has helped us out.” Among their games, the competiton against St. Clair and Goodrich were strong games. Scoring goals in those games were Kirk Beyer, Mike Stubbs Dave Piper, Bob Vogel and Erick Senkmajer. Goal tending was shared by Greg Theim and Brad Golembiewski. Kirk Beyer takes a face off deep in the Algonac end as Dennis White and Dave Piper defend the net. Tryouts are nerve wracking Freshmen Basketball cheerleading squad is made up of six members. All of these girls had to go through a pro- cess of trying out and being picked for the squad. In order to possibly be pick- ed for the squad, the girls at- tended two practices and work- ed on their own. All the freshmen cheerleaders said they were nervous about trying out and only half of them were prepared for the workouts and practice prior to trying out. “I ' ve always wanted to go out for cheerleading, get involv- ed in school activities and get school spirit,” is why Tammy Musson wanted to try out for the squad, while all the others said they had thought it would be fun to be a cheerleader. Being a cheerleader takes up time after school for practicing and at night and weekends for the games they cheer for. The freshmen squad ismade up of: Tammy Musson, Dee Dee Benke, Nicole Moore, Nicole Licari, Te rry Vermeulen, and Tonya Yonaka. Algonac players congratulate the St. Clair team after the game. Sports Feature — 77 Activities highlight days throughout the year After years of continually declining enrollments, it was a pleasant surprise to see a rise in the number of students in the district. Enrollment is up to 902 from 890 last year. Activities kept things active. November became an assembly month. The yearbook kicked off their sales campaign with the fourth annual sales assembly, Band A Rama enter- tained a capacity gym on November 9, Free Fare returned after a four year absence with a concert to entertain the students on November 12. The Thursday night concert resulted in a few problems with the band delayed and a resulting shorter concert. Sophomores kicked off a fund raising program on November 19. Right before Thanksgiving, juniors covered the school with Turkey grams. Christmas came with the annual Choral Concert on December 19. The lack of snow made the arrival of the Christmas season seem Fir away. Second semester brought the annual fun and games of Winter Wacky Week with the school breaking out the spirit to motivate the fall teams. Rain kept everyone looking for the ark as November turned into one of the wettest months on record. Thanksgiving vacation was also ex- tended thanks to the weather. The high winds and flooding conditions along M-29, the river area, and the resulting power failures kept students home on Monday, December 2. Stopping Us !Now At the Homecoming Assembly on October 1 1, a girls tug of war was added. Martha Humes, Vicki Carson, Casey Jones, Raquel Tuma and Gretchen Humes soon discovered the challenges on participating in this game. Sophomores keep their eye on the action to cheer their class during the September 27 pep assembly. 78 - People Division Seniors: 80 A strong stomach is necessary for senior, Dave Piper to win the root beer chug-a-lug contest during the November 7 yearbook assembly.

Using material to identify lockers of each class is a popular method to complete themes during hall decorations. People Division - 79 One of those days... Have you ever had one of those days when nothing went right... at all? For some strange reason, it seems that seniors get more of ‘ those days” than anyone else. Cindi Crowe found that to be true: “ In the winter, when I was coining into school, the steps were really slippery, and as graceful as I am, I fell. Then my locker wouldn’t open. When I got home, the door was locked and I dropped all of my books looking for my keys. ” Bad days can get a person down. With heavy work loads in school, Beth Beres finds bad days happen. “I forgot to do my assignment in Col- lege Composition, then 1 had a quiz in Computer Use . Things like that happen all of the time, then I think about it all day and I can’t pay atten- tion in any of my other classes.” Then you have the senior who drives to school without a permit and is sent back home. This incident involves many dilemnas: you are now short of gas, late for class, and your mom is mad. It ' s just one of those days. Victor E. Aiuto Brian M. Ambrous Darrell R. Amoe Sherri S.

With special interests and activities, many seniors find themselves becoming involved in different activities. Careers and future plans help put students in the spotlight. Students like Kelly Connors, Andrea Connors, John Lorenz, Jeanie Williams, Jacci Mohr and Marty Davis are a part of the Algonac Community Theater. Members are brought in by audi- tion, and the group puts on small play productions for the public. “The group has been going on for about three or four years now,” said Jeanie Williams. Jeff McFarlane, was recently accepted at General Motors In- stitute in Flint, Michigan. McFarlane said, “To be accepted, they look for high GPA’s, leadership, and ACT scores.” Going to school and playing in a band might be difficult for some, but Marty Esseiink has been playing bass guitar with the band, Finesse a little over a year now.

I ' ve learned to use my time off from work in better ways,” stated Marty Esselink who works at M R Pharmacy. Many seniors work. All for different reasons. Many want to save up enough money for a car or “for a trip to Brazil” as Tony Meldrum someday hopes. Tony works at McDonalds and at Colony Bowl. Cherie Gelaude works as a co-op student as secretary to the Athletic Director. She does it for “the experience and the money.” Patti Engelhardt works because “I have a car to support. It costs a lot of money to keep it clean, to feed it gas, not to mention life insurance on that baby. ” Working can take up a lot of free time. For some people it interferes with school and a social life. Kit Raymond says “It doesn’t leave much time to do anything else. My only day off is Sunday.” Bill Rees explains working as “taking time away from my girlfriend.” But to every bad point, there are good points. Like enjoying those new cars, the trips or just the petty cash in the pocket. Kevin Dewey Kim K. Dryer Debbie K. Drummond Colleen Eaton Paul C.

Transferring during Senior year Transferring to a new school senior year provides many challenges. Robin Vaughn moved from Warren Cousino to join the class of ’86 at AHS. At Cousino, Robin was involved with Distributive Education and the CPC program (which is like the Skill Center). Robin is planning on attending junior college and then EMU to study Psychology. She is currently in Mr. Greenwood s Psych class. Joining the class in January were the following seniors. Don Caie From Port Huron, Charles Owens from Warren Lincoln, Tanya Hulewicz from Romeo and Jerome Ciesia from Dearborn. Paul E. Heinrich Rachel R. Herod Kurt C. Heyza Mark C.

Tassels become Status symbols Seniors remember the things that were symbols each year. A driver’s license was one of those things. As soon as you get your license, you’re convinced that you’re a great driver and just can’t understand why your parents won’t let you take the car every night. Class rings always made the juniors feel superior over all of the freshmen and sophomores. At this point, you begin planning the future - looking at colleges, job placement, and making sure you have the necessary electives for your future. Tassels are another item of senior status. When seniors received their graduation tassels, they felt like real seniors. “It made me realize that there’s only a short time left until I graduate and it’s really hard to believe,’’ replied Laura LaParl. Where you hang your tassel is probably the decision of the year. Out of the seniors surveyed, about 80% replied that they are going to hang their tassels on their rear view mirrors - the most popular place yet. After twelve years of school, Brian Genaw calmly waits for his receipt on his cap and gown. Ralph J. Krause Mark S. Labadie Laura A. LaParl Tracey L. LaParl Mike Larabell Alicia M. Lazarz Jennifer R.

Jim Maniaci talks with Mr. McLeod about Skill Center programs. A book of quotes Teacher trademarks... As one moves through the day, certain statements become trademarks of individual teachers. To help illustrate their importance, some teachers have even created banners in their classrooms to help illustrate their points. To begin the day, students pulling into the parking lot are often greeted by Mr. Gilbreath say- ing “Do you have a parking permit?” Once the 8:00 bell has rung and notebooks are out, Mr. Baker can be heard saying: “There’s no time like note time” and after the day’s notes, he then passes out the day’s assignments w ith “Here’s another one of my great assignments. In Office Education, Mrs. Jackson will often say “Mark my words”. Also, in a prominent area of her classroom is an important statement “Proofread or Die” stressing the importance of error free copy. College Comp students are all aware of Mr. Holmes’ favorite statement “Performances Not Excuses”. This also hangs on banners in the room. Other classes and teachers have developed sayings that fit their specific class or concerns. Throughout the day, you may hear the following being said: Mr. Shafer -“Never Miss a Deadline or You’ll Be Dead.’’; Mr. Avers - “Sit up in your seat or you’ll grow crooked.”; Mr. Maki - “You’re homework for tomorrow is...” and both Mrs. Jackson and Mrs. Streit are known to say “Watch my lips.” Even walking through the hall, one often hears Mrs. Licari saying “Do you have a pass?” Then after school, it’s time for band practice and Mr. Reed’s famous statement: “Early is on time, and on time is late.” In the middle of practice, he can be heard to say to keep everyone standing at attention - “Let it itch.” Individual trademarks fit each member of the faculty helping to make AHS a fun place to be.

Classes from College Comp to Woodshop ail work towards that goal. From the col- lege bound student to the student who isn’t sure what he wants to do, each class helps to prepare for the future. As a sixth hour was added, so were com- plications for a few students. Additional credits were needed to graduate and some seniors soon found out that they had to make up another half credit. Some students had been depending on sixth hour to make this up. Now there was no other choice but to attend night school. Night school gives a half credit for each class. Students go to school one night a week for four hours. Dennis VC hite feels that he goes to “school all day long with just a three hour break.” Mark Labadie describes his six hour school day and four hour night school as though it makes it In Drafting class , precision and skill are essential. Pat Martin and Gary Maslanka work to perfect their drawings. feel like a prison. Ten hours a day is just too much.” Some of the offered classes are Reading Lab and American History. Dave Shwary doesn’t mind going because “there isn’t much to do in Algonac anyway. It’s just a place to go, but I’d rather be somewhere else.” In a Film Communications class, Mark Labadie “sits and watches modern movies and then has short discussions about them.” Dave Nagy doesn’t “like to spend my time at night school when I could be doing something else.” Dave attends a Comm, class where he does “lots and lots of reading.’’ The students have to supply their own transportation to and from school. “This can sometimes be a problem when you have to rely on your friends all the time,’’ reports Dave Nagy.

Whether it is jeans or baggy sweaters, hats or dangling earrings or pearls, the seniors are up on fashion trends and dress accordingly. Looking at the situation of being fashionable, the class of ’86 shopped in Merry — Go — Round, Hudsons, D.J., The Shop, The Shop and Carrie s Closet. Popular malls were Lakeside and Oakland. Among the many items purchased, seniors found that they needed: stir-up pants , paisley printed pants, sweater skirts, two tone jeans, faded jeans and lettermen sweaters. Working out in the weight room, Cindy Rausch could often be found in many fashionable outfits. Here she wears her stir up pants.

Looking to the future Cosmetology, construction and commercial art are a few of the career fields that the seniors have chosen for their future jobs. Many of the seniors planning on college look towards Macomb or SC4. In an informal survey, many of the students indicated that their parents would be helping them to pay for college. In an informal survey of Mr. Holmes’ 4th hour, some of the colleges under consideration are: Michigan Tech, Oakland, SC4, MSU, Eastern, Hope College, CMU, GMI, Western, Macomb, Dorsey Business School, U of M, and Ferris. Going into the Air Force is what Rich Billbury plans on doing for the next four to six years. He is going into aircraft maintainence. Tony Richardson is planning to follow his parents and attend MSU, and Brian Genaw is looking to attend a trade school while keeping his job at Little Caesar’s to help finance his education. Wedding bells are in the plans for members of the class of ’86. Gia Leon will be married on July 19. She will then leave with her husband to live on base while he is in service. Renee Jaster is planning on a summer of ’87 wedding. She is currently working as a medical receptionist and hopes to continue this career. Cheryl Lorence is planning a May, 1987 wedding.

Wood Future Plans — Way — Wood — 101 Last spirit week provides memories Just when it seemed safe to come to school, the annual week of crazy antics arrived. The week began quietly with Occupation Day, which brought the least participation. However, with the arrival of Beach Bum day, tunes from Beach Boys albums, shorts, print shirts and com- fortable clothes were the order of the day. Then the new addition for this year, Nerd Day. Although, some found it difficult to dress up in a nerd fashion, those that did really captured the spirit of the day and had some fun with it. Theme day enabled the seniors to capture many points for the Spirit Jug. With the ease of choosing a holiday and dressing to that holiday, many participated in this event. In spite of after school committments, the class of ’86 really got in- volved in the activities. The seniors had the largest crowd for hall decorations enabling them to cover the hall with many different holi- day presentations. The float captured first place and lots of holiday involvement. Students raided closets for old Halloween costumes to help capture this spirit. The conclusion of spirit week brought the end to four fun years of spirit week. Each year things grew larger and the seniors grew more confident of their ability to work as a class to achieve status. The award winning Holiday float traveled around the track during halftime. Trying his hardest to win, A. J. Hopkins pushes a marshmallow at the evening pep assembly during Spirit Week. Freezing her buns , Bev Okum tries to concentrate on the action at the yearbook assembly. Spirit w eek brought nerds and geeks to AHS. Two of the best were John Desmarais and Craig Baker. In the cafeteria on nerd day, Leonard Pascoe and Darrell Amoe portrayed two studious nerds. 102 — Spirit Week Woods, Andrea: Precisionettes 12, Track 12, TA 12, Special Olympics 10, 12; Yaney,Jody: Majorettes 9, 10, 11, 12, Band 9, Tennis 9, 10, 11, 12, TA 12; Yax, Sean : Track 9, Yearbook 12, TA 10, Special Olympics 10; Young, Theresa: Yearbook 9, Newspaper 12; Andrea L.

Juniors show Increased spirit Coming on strong, the junior class brought many new and active ideas into action through the year. Spirit Week brought punk rockers, rock-n- rollers, and nerds. Durin g the first annual female tug of war, the junior girls overpowered the seniors. With strong competition for the spirit jug, the annual senior -junior rivalry erupted in strong force. Juniors led the hall competition, but un- fortunately lost in the float competition which enabled the seniors to win the Spirit Jug. Fund raising was a big part of this year. From Turkey grams, Santa grams, M M s, Homecoming Mums and other assorted projects helped the class of ’87 finance the prom at Thomas Crystal Gardens on May 2. With the delivery of rings on September 5, juniors acquired their of- ficial status symbol. Throughout the school, juniors proudly displayed fingers adorned with birthstones and the school crest.

Some girls slave in front of the mirror all morning long, primping and powdering to look their best for another day at school. Make-up and curling irons and mousse are a few essentials aids that fall into the morning routine. “Waking up on a Monday morn- ing is one of the hardest tasks” ac- cording to DeAnna Benoit after a long weekend. Mirrors continue all day. Some students spend the day with their comb getting ready for the next class exchange or for lunch. Some students bring enough make up to outfit the cast of a play. Others spend the entire five minutes of class exchange just repairing make up. Then there are the students who spend an hour in gym or in weight training. After working out for an hour, they must change and be ready to spend the rest of the day in perfect condition. Then there is the weather. After spending an hour getting ready, students find themselves outside in a driving snowstorm or a dren- ching rain. All of the work doesn’t matter now, as that carefully curled hair is now very straight.

Brian Hebert and Pal model the latest in fashion sweaters. F urry friends Many students and teachers have furry friends that greet them when they come home from school. Each animal has a distinct personality. Rachel Kozel’s parakeet Killer ' is very much a part of the family. He loves drinking coffee in the morning with Dad, taking a bubble bath in Mom’s dish soap and admiring himself in the mirror. Killer’s a pain at times, but we all love him anyways.’’ Ms. Broeder joined the ranks of dog owners last summer. She found that there have been a few challenges. “Never having a pet before left me unprepared for some of the changes a pet brings. Punky is into chewing things. So far she has destroyed my checkbook and wiped out two shepherd heads at Christmas.’’ Another new dog owner is Ms. Shagena. Cassie — Casandra Marie Atkins — joined the family last year. “She likes to steal my panty hose and hide them under the antique bath tub.’’ Cassie and Punky and Mrs. Aver’s ChiChi are all descendants of Katie Moran’s dog, Taffy. Scarf Arlene Jones -Jackson belongs to Mrs. Jackson. Scarf has a beautifully decorated house at Christmas complete with lights, Santa and sleigh and wreath. She also has the ability to pick winning lottery tickets. She wins everytime. In February, the Jackson household added a new puppy, Babushka. ’’She loves my bear claw slippers and is very smart’’ said Mrs. Jackson.

Martha Amama was among the several unfortunates. While work- ing at Big Boy’s restaurant in Marine City, Martha stepped off a chair into a bucket of hot grease. The grease was 375 ° and she received se- cond and third degree circular burns on her foot. “It hurts worse now than it did when it happened,’’ said Martha. Earlier this year, Dan Recor was injured in a motorcycle accident. Dan received nerve damage and doesn’t know when it will heal. Hockey took the toll on two students this year. Erick Senkmajer and Dave Piper were injured while playing hockey. Erick had his foot in a cast and had to use crutches to get around the building. Dave com- mented that “the worst part of all this is I’m out of hockey for a month.” Most all of the students injured during the year agreed that one of the biggest problems was being able to get around school. With the benefit of leaving five minutes early to avoid being crushed in the hall, all managed to smile and keep their sense of humor. An empty hall is about the only advantage of being on crutches. Erick Senkmajer leaves early to make the journey from the newspaper room to the band room.

She managed to keep up with her interviews to meet her newspaper deadlines despite the wheelchair. Lori Stobar helps with developing questions for the latest assignment. Concerts Extra activities provided many events for all students. The skit with Freedom Fair in November kept the students laughing. Band members provided directions to the participants in the skit, Tim Rawson, Chris Castiglione, Doug McMullen and Mr. Sabo. Their participation in the outer space skit enabled the band to involve students and faculty in their act. Although with masks it was difficult to know what was happening, the students enjoyed their pan. Freedom Fair was one of the many assemblies that were pan of this year. From pep assemblies to game assemblies to the occasional entenainment assembly, students welcomed the break in routine and change in their day.

The ice jams along with the high water levels contributed to the flooding problems that plagued river residents. JVI other Nature - Did you do this? High water levels and colder than normal temperatures eventually caused flooding on low lying areas bordering the St. Clair River. The high water level resulted from the unusual amount of precipitation causing serious problems for local businesses, downriver homes and the Fair Haven area. Several ice breakers were needed to keep the St. Clair River ice flowing. The flooding in late December and early January took a toil on proper- ty and people s patience. Captain U s was forced to close and the battle with the water was won by the water. Considerable renovation will be necessary before the restaurant can reopen. Streets became ice skating rinks as the water soon froze. Spring thaws and the thought of southwestern winds kept residents downriver, on Anchor Bay Drive and Fair Haven carefully watching the elements. Extremes continued to dominate the year. In September a strong heat wave wiped out the energy levels. At the Welcome Back Dance on September 6, it was still in the 90s at 10 p.m. October ranks as one of the wettest months on record. It became a month that it was unusual when it wasn ' t raining. November then became the month without sun as grey days were the norms. Homes along M-29 felt the effect of the high water. Flood waters lapped at Craig Baker ' s home.

(Survey results 4 out of 5) Among favorite types of food, 25% preferred burgers, 25% Mexican, 25% Chinese and 25% seafood.

No longer just trying to survive in a new school, sophomores began to look at the realistic situation of becom- ing student leaders. Suddenly, grade point averages are important as students began to look at possible National Honor Society membership. Others realized the importance of classes as credit shortages placed class standings in jeopardy. For many the letters over the summer of problems with failed classes made sophomores realize that the academic situation was serious. On November 19, the class began a suc- cessful jewelry campaign with close to 70 students getting involved selling jewelry. The incentive prizes ranging from jewelry to phones and tvs kept the class enthusiastic. The end result, once the money was in, enabled the class to begin seriously planning. Future plans also became important. During the first semester, the sophomores felt tested out. They took the State Assessment, California Test of Basic Skills and Otis Lennon tests. These tests will help with future planning as second semester led to 10th grade conferences. Concession stands during football season are excellent fund raisers. Despite the problems of moving pop, ice and all of the food items to be sold to the Lions Field, the end result is usually $ 1 50 - 200 additional dollars in the treasury. Traditionally, each class has had one of the football games as their money maker for the year. Sophomores Dena Dingwall, Ann Kmetz, and Kelly Ponke work this stand for their class.

CZ ars provide independence Sophomore year brings the freedom of having a car and the ability to provide your own transportation to a variety of places. All of a sud- den, Mom and Dad do not need to drive on the dates, to the store or to the movies. However, prior to the responsibility of a license, one must pass driver’s training. This means Saturday driving sessions and after school classes. Sophomores in Ms. Shagena’s first semester third hour were surveyed on driver’s training. Half of them already have cars, and of the students that did have their licenses, one third said that the hardest part of driver’s training was passing the last test. 95% of the students surveyed said that they think they will get more priveliges when they receive their licenses.

Lockers reflect the personalities of their oc- cupants as they quickly become a home away from home. In a survey conducted, January 1986, of a group of sophomores, the award for the cleanest locker goes to Fred Rollins and Eric Harden. The most decorative goes to Renee Quenneville and Laura DiVergilio. The most original locker belongs to Jennifer Kloeffler and Kent Yaney with the messiest and locker with the most peo- ple in it going to Michelle Berube and Dawn Harding. Lockers are assigned alphabetically by the of- fice. However, through the year many people find new locker partners. Often this is controlled by personality conflicts or the status situation of sharing a locker with a boyfriend or girlfriend. Sophomore lockers are located in the middle hall which is popular with the class. This puts them “right in between everyone.’ ‘ With five minute class changes, Kelly Ponke, Stacy Pisarski, Jana Taylor, and Amy Skula rush to get books and get a chance to chat. Discovering that she needs another book, Shelli Kurak grabs her Journalism book out of her locker before she is late.

Events kept days busy as many sophomores found out. New programs kept students occupied. Weight training was a major success with additional sections added second semester. Traditional activities such as pep assemblies, beach bum day, National SmokeOut and Special Olympics helped make the class of ’88 very busy. Homecoming kept sophomores moving. With the problems with hall, sophomores showed outstanding spirit with the float. In fact, some controversy erupted after the float judging as some people felt that the float was deserving of first place. The Class of 88 faced new requirements for graduation. In addition to the basic requirements, they must also have one semester of Speech, one semester of Physical Education and one semester of Computer Science. Twenty-two and a half credits are now re- quired for graduation. Learning to be involved and working as a group, sophomores found that school spirit involved time and effort but led to lots of good times.

Class of ’8 9 becomes involved Being involved keeps the class of 89 active. With the change from Junior High School to High School, the difference in activities keeps everyone enjoying being part of AHS. Scott Fredericks finds the activities very different and likes to go to assemblies to “get wild and into the spirit.’ With the assemblies, students enjoy going to “get out of class” according to Dave Willey. Debbie Sacra said that often “they have no choice but to go to the assembly.” However, she also stated that getting involved in activities is “one way to have fun while in high school” Cheryl Stepp looks at being involved “not only to have fun, but also to raise money for fun things.” Involvement... begins the journey to gradua- tion through many activities, interests, and just plain fun days. Freshmen girls, Donna Calcaterra and Raquel Tuma get out to show their spirit and win points in a tug-of-war against the Sophomores.

No longer do freshmen have just required classes all day. Rather, the sixth hour enables them to add electives during the day. In the past, many students faced the problem of having to choose between band and foreign language to meet the college prep requirements. With the change, the enrollment in foreign languages in creased as more students added this as their sixth hour. Microscopic study is a key pan of the beginning science requirement.

F ashionable Pat Schornak Freshmen Staying in fashion is an important element to high school students. Many of to- day ' s current trends reflect back to the 40 s and 50 ' s. When shopping students look for specific things to stay in style. Tammy Musson said: I purchased mostly short pants and bulky sweaters for this year.” With the change in styles, preppy type fashions remain in, while the popularity of punk has diminished. However, always remaining comfortable are levis. Throughout the school with sweaters, heels, short socks or tennis shoes, students took care of their trusty jeans. Picture day is an opportunity for a variety of styles as students plan to look thier best. Tracy Karl, Sherry Minche, John Mikolasik, and Tom Graebert pay prior to their turn with the photographer.

This class would allow two students per hour to help main- tain the library, work on skills and help students and teachers. Mrs. Bokhari is working to re- instate the French program that was dropped with the last cutbacks.

D ramatic changes highlight academic program With changes evident everywhere, the ad- ministration began the year on a positive note. As a result of the passage of the millage, the school district returned to a six hour day along with restoring programs on the elementary and junior high level. New programs also developed with the Gifted and Talented program coordinated by Mrs. Vannest. This program involved students in all the schools as well as two teachers who worked with all elementary students building thinking skills. Physically the buildings took on new looks as the building program at Algonac Elemen- tary, Pte. Tremble and Fair Haven neared completion. After extensive planning and work, the students and teachers appreciated the change in their surroundings. Enthusiastic describes the reaction of the administration and staff to the being able to offer an expanded academic program. With the push for academic excellence nationwide, new pressures have been put on the school With the building programs, restored sixth hour and expanded programs, Mr. Hoilway relates some of the success of this year to Bridgett Grinde. district for required classes. As he looks to the future, Mr. Ford would like to see “a greater variety of classes offered for juniors and seniors.” The computer scheduling has been a tremendous success. The district implemented the program through the ISD which enables each school to tie into the main computer in Marysville, but do their entering in their local school. This provides a great deal of flexibility and immediate feedback. Looking at the year overall, Mr. Hoilway commented that ” this year has been excellent returning to a full schedule, new facilities and a full sports program. It will take more than one year to see the total change.” Mr. Caimi feels that this has been a very good school year. “Staff, students and the community feel more positive. Hopefully, our number one priority will be to continue to ex- perience stability rather than the up and down stages of the past.” Dr. Bollin and Mr. Yonaka review ' the applications for mini grants. Through the mini grant program, faculty members were able to obtain specialized material to use in their classrooms. Four teachers obtained mini grants this year.

Administration — 143 Mrs. Hurst answers one of the many drivers ed questions that cross her desk daily. Mrs. Fisher keeps the letters on suspensions and warnings up to date. Eye testing is one of Mrs. Whittemore’s many jobs at the high school. During the year she also worked with the health class teaching them CPR. Mrs. Cora Fisher Mrs. Linda Hurst Mrs. Jean Moran " V aluable assistance from staff Between attendance, student schedul- ing, and driver s education, things can sometimes become hectic. With frequent interruptions, each job at times takes a little longer. Yet, each student s request is met and completed as quickly as possible. Mrs. Hurst is Mr. Ford s secretary. She is responsible for all Driver’s Education material as well as working to co-ordinate all of the graduation needs. Mrs. Fisher works with student scheduling. She also works as Mr. Gilbreath s secretary completing all the letters and forms needed in a day. Mrs. Moran works with attendance. Recording attendance on an hourly basis, she also transfers the records to the state books and keeps the excused list up to date. In addition to their regular duties, each secretary works to meet the individual needs of students and teachers. From the xerox machin e that doesn’t work because of jammed paper to the student needing a copy of their report card or an excused pass, the day is always busy. The school nurse is an active part of the school life. With immunization records, sciolosis testing, and eye testing, she spends many days at the high school. In addition, she works with special pro- jects in classes. No matter, what the need, each member of the office personnel works to meet each request. 144 — Office personnel Attendance calls come in on an hourly basis. Mrs. Moran talks with a parent prior to recording their child ' s excused absence. Mrs. Baxter, Mrs. Mercer and Mrs. Smith listen to Stacy Beliia’s presentation on WWW activities. Attendance policy updates is an agenda item for Parent Advisory meetings. The policy was modified last September with the understanding that it would be reviewed during the year. Members of the Advisory Board sat on the committee that met during the summer to implement changes. Advisory Board: Front Row Mrs. Marilyn Lorenz, Mrs. Judie Reams, Mrs. Gloria Mercer, Mrs. Evelyn Avers. Back Row: Mrs. Gail Petit, Mrs. Dolores Nelson, Mrs. Sharon Stiltner, Mrs. Jane Davis, Mrs. Barbara Lobeck, Mrs. Lynda Smith, Mrs. Joann Vandenabeele Parent Advisory Board — 145 Discussion on National Honor Society standards involves the members of the Advisory Board including Mrs. Nelson. During one meeting the Advisory Board choose base cap and gown colors for each class to work with. P arents provide insight On a district wide basis, Advisory Board meet once a month. Their input is essential in program planning as well as providing insight as parents on school activities. The high school Advisory Board has in the past worked with National Honor Society, the attendance policy, cap and gown colors and other issues of policy that affect the student body. Members of the Advisory Board also work closely with Student Council helping with the various class activities. In particular, they help to organize any activities put on by the freshmen and sophomores. Mr. Ford finds the insight of the parents valuable as he plans programs, schedules and activities. Members from this group also sit on an Ad- visory Board with Mr. Caimi providing direc- tion for the entire school district. Each school appoints members from their Advisory Board to sit on Mr. Caimi’s board. Traditional trademarks describe academic program As American History notes find their way into the closet next to the social studies coun- ty maps, traditions remain a key part of the learning experience. Whether it is the repetitive drills to learn the keyboard in Keyboarding I or the ever famous American History study guides or the VCR programs in English classes, students rely on teachers to follow patterns. In addition to the yearly dissecting in Biology and Physiology classes, certain units yearly provide students with challenges such as the genetics unit in Biology and the squares built for inherited traits. Health classes continue to get involved in projects such as CPR, Smokeout and the Blood Drive. Child Development classes use the “mock marriage and family unit” to help students understand problems that can occur in marriages. Novels remain special to the English classes. Each winter the College Composition class works with their classics assignment. Mr. Greenwood’s Comm. 1 class writes let- ters to famous people, Mr. Holmes’ Comm. II yearly works on a Congress project along with the indepth study of grammar found in all of the English classes. Notebooks are a common assignment to help students organize their work throughout the marking period. Whether it is Ms. Shagena and the World Problems notebook or Mrs. Hartman and the com- puter notebook, it becomes a challenge for all students to keep their notes and assignments up to date. As the staff expanded, new traditions began. Mrs. Bokhari treated her French I students to croissants to begin the Thanksgiving holiday on November 27. Mrs. East developed individualized pro- grams and worksheets for the Math Skills classes. Mr. Jones added different touches to the Art programs. Changing all the time, yet staying somewhat the same provides a sense of security as students move through their high school years. Movies clarify historical events. Mr. Baker prepares the Civil War movie for his fifth hour class. With the concern of Government as a graduation requirement, Mr. Wes reviews grades with Joe Way and Marty Davis. 146 - Traditions Grammar assignments are a key element of College Composition. Mr. Holmes helps Marty Davis prepare for his ' Black Wednesday ' ' test. With the re-instatement of the sophomore social studies requirement, Dan Shea and Jenny Rochon check with Mr. Godfrey for a test review prior to a major test. Board work is a traditional method of learning math. Mr. Sanders helps Tonya Yonaka with her Algebra equation. Geometric shapes are a reality as Mr. Rochon uses display figures to explain the lesson. Xraditions - 147 Additional faculty creates space problems Keeping a careful eye out for moving VCR’s, teachers on the roving carts returned to AHS in September. With the restoration of staff, the long standing problems of fitting everyone into existing classrooms materialized. Mr. Young and Mr. Shafer found themselves changing rooms throughout the day. Mr. Young com- mented: “It is difficult to think of and remember all of the things needed in all of the classes all day. Having makeup work and materials for students on hand is impossible. If I need to go to the office or my office between classes, it is very difficult to do without being late to the next hour. It is difficult to push a cart through the crowded halls.’’ As Mr. Shafer stated, sharing a room can pro- vide additional problems. “I cannot plan to use chalkboards because the rooms I am in have in- formation on the board that teachers want sav- ed. Using AV equipment is an additional hassle to haul around. Changing classrooms destroys the opportunity to use creativity in my instruc- tion and forces me to often teach the same old boring way.’’ Preparing for a six hour day, people w ' ere moved during the summer. Chorus had to give up its own room to return to the music area in the band room along with the stage area. Mrs. Asaro moved into the Chorus room with 102 turning into a second computer lab. The Weight Room found itself changing homes as the Math Lab became part of room 135. Weight training experienced the largest adjustment to the stage making class during 4th hour a challenge. Creative Home Ec meant finding the previously stored cooking utensils as programs were restored. There were also problems with a science class being housed in the home ec lab. This problem was solved as Mr. Taylor and Mr. Schlaack switched rooms during the fall. This solved some of the problems of lack of bulletin boards experienced by Mr. Schlaack. Mr. Taylor switched rooms which meant that the work stations used in his room also had to be changed. Jon Stobar uses one of the many math programs available for the Apple computer. Weight training isn’t all weight lifting. A good part of the class is physical conditioning. Mr. Avers leads the exercises during his fourth hour class. 148 - C hanging locations Moving to a different room each hour is a challenge. Mr Young works with the Comm. Ill classes discussing The Outsiders . Using the stage as a practice area, Mr. McMaken sets up the microphones for Rainbow Connection members Mark Burguron, Patti Stier and Wendi Klier to practice for their December 19 concert. Shawn Leonard and Tracy Shagena use the light board to review negatives with Mr. Shafer prior to asking fof the needed pictures. Newspaper staff moved into room 127 with the office becoming a publications office. Although at times, this meant that things were cluttered, it also reduced duplication of materials as both publication staffs use similar materials. Changing Locations - 149 Reviewing a student file helps the student and parent be aware of his standing in Mr. Treppa’s class. Time demands keep faculty members busy Time is an clement that provides challenges for everyone. Members of the faculty found themselves no exception as the 86 school year began. With the passage of the millage, teachers and students adjusted to the day being longer. Teachers also began to look for planning new courses. Curriculum Council committees looked into the addition of Historical Novels, Library Science and new electives in many areas. One of the biggest changes for the staff dur- ing the fall was the absence of t.a.’s. It was now essential for each teacher to absorb the extra paperwork of checking all the papers, running all the dittoes and keeping up with the many small items that t.a.’s had previously done. In addition, to the changes, preparation again involved time from the staff. Making the lec- tures exciting, interesting, planning worksheets and devising tests kept the typewriters and lights burning late many evenings in teacher s homes. Parent Conferences on October 24 and 25 provided opportunities for the staff to meet with parents and discuss progress. With the emphasis on academics, parents came in record numbers to meet with the teachers. As a result of the conferences, the two week progress report list increased dramatically. Many students found themselves receiving updates on missing assignments and classwork on two week basis. Business classes demand a great deal of precision and accuracy. Mrs. Jackson explains the grading scale during conferences. Chris Quednau and Jennifer Kloeffler perfect the Gina George works at the Child Development class clarinet section of the Marching Band. Many band project, a family tree, practices led to a winning result. Jim Smith and Sarina Peterson record the mass of chemicals in their Law of Conservation of Mass experiment in Chemistry. 1 50 - T ime Demands Planning college and vocational programs, Mr. Cvengros meets with Tracie Tillinger. With the restoration of the third counselor, each senior had the opportunity to meet individually with one of the counselors for a credit check. The counseling staff also meets with the 10th graders each spring to do planning for the remainder of their high school. Mrs. Streit provides college information to a parent during conferences. Using student work, Mrs. Huston highlights progress. Concentrating intently, Mr. Greenwood explains the requirements in Psychology class. With many students in foreign language classes, Mr. Weitzel met with a large number of parents. Time Demands -151 Safety is always important when using a circular saw as Tony Polito demonstrates in the Woodshop area. Skill Center opporunities provide vocational training Cooking, auto mechanics, small engines, of- fice practices and computers are just a few of the programs offered at the St. Clair County Skill Center. “I like to work with people, and it makes me feel like I’ve accomplished something, ' ' replied Molly Fullington when questioned on her in- volvement with Woodland Development Center. Woodland works with retarded children and with the elderly. A typical day for Molly in- cludes working with “special kids’’ on shopping skills, house cleaning, simple math and reading, manners in public and many other things that they will need to know to eventually be as in- dependent as possible. Most students feel that going to the Skill Center is good for them, but many of them feel they are “missing out” on many of the activities Using a lathe takes great concentration as Paul Heinrich works in the Metal Shop Area. Hands on work in Small Engine ' s is a pan of Art Cook ' s normal day. at AHS. Training in fields today that demand technical skills is valuable. Skill Center con- tinues to develop new programs including the area of Robotics. With the change in employ- ment practices, students will not be able to find jobs without some type of technical training beyond high school. Skill Center enables students to do this, earn three credits and help with job placement beyond school. Traveling daily to Marysville is another challenge. Students spend thirty to forty minutes on the bus. For the afternoon skill center students, this means that some do not ar- rive home until late afternoon. Having the chance to spend the day working with skilled trade material compensates for the long days. Working the industrial mixer helps Shelly Major prepare the pastry dough in the Foods Department. 152 — Skill Center i Textbook work is required prior to using the computers in all of the areas of the Skill Center. Joe Way completes one of the required modules. Working with the TRS — 80 computer, Polly George follows the step carefully to begin to edit the text. The bus ride is a good place to relax before going to 5th and 6th hour. Jim Maniaci tries to catch a little sleep on the way back to Algonac. Skill Center — 153 Staff keeps school in shape With so many people behind the scenes, the support personnel keep the school runn- ing. From the bus drivers who brave icy roads to the cooks who stave away the hunger pains to the personnel at Central Duplication who keep the students in worksheets, the support staff is a key part of the school. Lunch is a key part of every student’s day. The cooks start at 8.15 with Mrs. Fournier beginning the main dish and Mrs. Smith baking those cookies. To cook and clean for 600 students requires a full day that lasts un- til 1:45. Mr. Lamb helps to keep the school in tip top shape. Throughout the day, he can be found whenever students need help with a stuck locker to keeping the heat in proper tune. Mr. Whitmore works afternoons to begin cleaning as well as keep things running smoothly for all the evening programs. The major cleaning is done during the 10:30 to 7:00 a.m. shift by Mr. Wilson, Mr. Jenks, Mr. Volkman and Mrs. Samoilo. Bus drivers are an important part of a stu- dent’s school day. Until they receive their license, car and parking permit, the yellow busses are transportation to and from school. Keeping the routes on time in all kinds of weather is a challenge easily met by the drivers. Bar coding involved Mrs. Elliott during the winter as she worked in the library. Keeping the popcorn and candy wrappers off the floor, Mr. Lamb keeps the school in top shape. Co-ordinating bus runs keeps Mr. Szymanski, Transportation Director busy. Bus Drivers: Mrs. Ponke, Mrs. Knox, Mrs. Farley, Mrs. Sicken, Mrs. Mayle, Mrs. Trevino, Mrs. Norman, Mrs. Cullimore. Keeping appetizing main dishes available on a daily basis is one of Mrs. Fournier ' s jobs. 1 54 — Support Staff The Math Lab required special electrical installation. Eugene Osieczonek and Dave Polito completed the necessary work. Preparing the snack food line right before lunch, Mrs. Smith stocks the chips. At times the line in the snack food line becomes long. Mrs. Freeman takes a request to help move the line quickly. Mrs. Davis, Mrs. Freeman, Mrs. Lauzon and Mrs. Smith Keeping a watchful eye, Mrs. Licari supervises the lunch breaks. After a hour and a half of keeping the cafeteria together, Mrs. Trafimuk and Mrs. Smith take a break before the Final cleanup.

Shel Seczawa 86, Senior Section editor This year seemed to cruise by a lot smoother than last. 1 had a great time! Kellie Robb, Photo editor I’d like to thank Ms. Broeder and Tracy Thomas for putting up with my moodiness and misplaced ads, etc . . . Also, I ' d like to thank all those people who ran for ads and our advertisers for their interest. Good luck to future editors and staffs. I have enpyed working on the last two yearbooks. I hope you do too! Pati Stier, Business Manager 198 — Acknowledgements Final words . . . Each yearbook begins differently and each year there are more than a few problems along the road to final deadline. Trying to compress 180 days into 200 pages is a challenge. 86 was-no different. For some reason, it always seemed that we were a week behind — no matter what we did to try to catch up. But as each problem occurred, it gradually became solved. We got the computer working after a breakdown in the midst of the major January deadline, the ruined pictures were retaken and incomplete copy was finished. Somewhere, along the line we realized that dreams were beginning to become reality. There are so many people to thank — so many who quietly helped us accomplish this goal. First, a special thanks for family and friends who learned to understand the time demands and occasional moodiness as deadlines took over. Secondly, Mr. Ford and Mr. Gilbreath who provided valuable help with schedule rearrangement, computer advice and encouragement. To the faculty, who tolerated our interruptions and put up with the popcorn and suckers, a special thank you. To Sam Slis, Taylor Publishing Company — his help in designing this book was essential. We could always count on a quick answer and advice to help us create this book. We also appreciate his offer of help during the computer crisis. To the staff at Lifetouch Portraits — you are an essential pan of our success. To Pam and Jan — our phone representatives — a million thanks for listening to the questions and answering them over and over. To our photographers — Tim, Gary and Carl — thank you for helping us to capture the memories. To our studio representative, Frank Onman — thank you for your help in keeping things organized and running smoothly. We also appreciate your encouragement throughout the year. To Mrs. Licari — a special thank you for accepting our passes and 3rd hour attendance. To the sports boosters — a continual thank you for the use of the popcorn machine. To the Rat Review staff — thanks for helping out with the odds and ends when we needed them. To Mr. Shafer — our sincere appreciation for living admist our junk. It was fun to have someone else who appreciated the hassles of producing a publication. To the office secretaries — thanks for letting us look up schedules, making xeroxes for us and helping us to find things. To everyone who supported our fund raisers throughout the year . . . Thank You 1986 REMEMBRANCE First off, 1 would like to thank each and every one of the staff — you were " marvelous ”. Second, I would like to thank Ms. Broeder for all the help and support she gave. And I wish next year’s editors the best of luck. Jennifer Leemhuis, co-editor Fantastic ... is the only word I can think of to describe this year. We had a strange yearbook group, but a creative one. I would like to thank the section editors, staff and especially Jenny who has shown creativity and dedication that I only dream of.

The staff was really great. Have a great year and remember we did this together. Special thanks to Ms. Broeder. Rachel Herod, Student Life editor I must say it has been a great year. I enjoyed working with the yearbook staff. They are hard working and very enthusiastic toward making the book great. I wish the seniors congratulations and good luck! DeAnna Benoit, Underclassmen editor Dressing up for Nerd Day during Spirit Week gave John Desmarais, Mark Heyza and Chris Blackburn a chance to raid the closet and get crazy. Daily assignments and lecturs keep Jeff McFarlane interested as he tries to pay attention and avoid the yearbook camera. o Stopping Us Now . . . No stopping us now . . . after four years of continual cutbacks, the changes as a result of the millage brought new enthusiasm into the school. Something always seemed to be happen- ing. Class activities kept us busy as students had choices in their electives for the first time in many years. New classes were also a part of the increased choices. Activities began to grow. It seemed that there was always something happening. Students packed dances every twx weeks. Science Olympics brought an enthusiastic turn out. There even was a ski trip to Pine Knob during winter break — enthusiasm — it’s contagious. Rowdy fans kept the stands rocking with spirit during basketball games. The basketball teams had a crowd of enthusiastic supporters at each game. All sports events found the stands filled with cheering as school spirit continued to grow in importance. Conclusion — 199 JVtany changes make ’86 exciting Academics, sports, extra curricular — the enthusiasm affected all aspects of student life. Football players spent their spring work- ing out getting ready for the coming year. Track runners eagerly awaited spring — planning all winter for the coming season. Winning traditions became a realistic goal — as Algonac began to put itself back on the sports map. Extra curricular — events met with degres of success during the year. At times, the students were enthused while at other points, apathy seemed to come with the snow and rain of February. Academically — new classes helped students compete with other students na- tionwide. Having the chance to choose six hours, students looked for chances to add variety or needed electives to prepare for college. Serious approaches to study dominated the year. It was evident that for many students their reason for being in school was academic and grades did make a difference. All around — changes, enthusiasm, ex- citement returned — there really was no stoppin’ us now. The plans for the new marina behind Chris Craft had the entire community excited. After so many years of depressed economy, it was exciting to see things changing on a positive basis. Phil Witherspoon brought the architechts’s drawings to class. Rob Crampton, Clayton Weber, Jerry Lee, Don Lewis, Brad Golembiewski, Dave Vanderheyden and Jay Stager crowd around to see the proposed development. c No O topping Us Now Enthusiasm . . . senior year is eagerly awaited by all. The Class of 86 was no exception. After working together as a class for four years, they convinced the school at each assembly that their class was the most spirited. Whether cheering for a team or laughing at a skit, the class looked at things optimistically and helped create a positive year. It truly became a year of looking to the future and one of not stopping a member of the AHS family. Closing — 200
