Pine Street Foley, Al. 36535 Volume 64 A Year of Progressing Mother Nature just couldn ' t make up her mind. As the South Baldwin Red Cross Chapter opened the elementary school for a shelter for the second time in only three days, Hurricane Elena made her way toward the Gulf Coast. During the early morning hours of September 1 , she made her Impact. The threat of the storm on August 30 had already delayed the Foley-Atmore season opener and postponed the first day of school from September 3 to Sep- tember 4. With school scheduled to be- gin after Labor Day, students had looked forward to a seven-day extension of summer vacation. But did they really want another extra day due to the threat of a hurricane? Well, it wasn ' t up to the individuals and after the second threat, students received an additional day — not arriving back until September 5. As Elena flooded the coast, 2725 stu- dents from surrounding communities flooded the campuses, causing them to become a " tad " overcrowded. Incoming ninth and tenth graders from Elberta and Summerdale boosted the enrollment by approximately 250, but the simultaneous opening of the sev- enth and eighth grades at Gulf Shores Public School put a slight dent into the growing population. As a result of the overflow, two lunch periods were created at the high school. In addition, several high school classes moved into elementary classrooms, causing the sixth grade to become part of the middle school campus. While students adjusted to the cam- pus life, they discovered the ordinary and began improving it. Whether it was attending a football game or becoming familiar with three foreign exchange stu- dents, it was a year of taking the usual and enhancing it. On Friday evenings, football fans en- joyed stacking up victories as Coach Lester Smith, one of the top fifteen coaches in the state, led the Lions to a playoff berth. As opposed to the 0-3 start of the previous year, the Lions crushed their first three opponents to begin the season with a 3-0 record. On the edge of town, area growth boomed as Burger King, Crispy Chick, Kentucky Fried Chicken, and Wal-Mart joined the community industry. Catering to the public ' s diverse tastes, the fast food " joints " put students ' tastebuds into action. i?l j ?

Woerner employees hurriedly take down a Hardee ' s bill- board while preparing for the approaching storm. Threatening twice, Hurricane Elena ' s unpredictable path caused uneasiness among residents. Amid shades of blue and gold, Mrs. Trixie Phillips and her niece, Shastady Lucas, await the start of the homecoming parade on Friday afternoon. As the parade debuted through the downtown area, numer- ous Lion enthusiasts lined the streets showing their true colors. 4 Doing More — Doing it Better A Year of Enhancing While students were improv- ing the usual, the outside world became aware of the unusual. In the fall, WKRG TV 5 visited the middle school campus to shoot a feature for the evening news. Adopted middle school dog Earl B. Taylor thrust the cam- pus into the spotlight when he made his television debut. While surrounding communities were learning about the campus, students were learning about each other. In the summer, Kristen Pearcy trav- eled to New York to begin her modeling career, posing for magazine issues from across the nation. The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), comprised of 11 states, invited the Computer Lab to par- ticipate with an exhibit during the De- cember conference held in New Orleans, LA, the only high school to be invited. Celebrating their silver anniversary, the American Field Service (AFS) con- tinued their foreign tradition, sponsoring three students — the first time ever to do so — and sending one abroad. Interact adopted an International Child from Kenya for the first time and sent contributions to him monthly. The yearbook staff released 594 heli- um balloons during halftime ceremonies of the Foley-McGill game to kick off state playoffs, the first derby to be held at school. While students matured as people, the campus progressed along with them. A uniform curriculum and advanced diplomas offered improved academics county-wide, better preparing students for college careers and promoting ad- vanced courses. Academic departments improved as courses in French and Ad- vanced Placement (AP) English en- hanced course offerings, allowing stu- dents to obtain a more varied background in their eduction. A flow of upgrading swept across the three campuses as refurbishing was con- tinuously taking place, the most appreci- ated by high school and elementary stu- dents being the cafeteria air- conditioning. In a year of doing more, students, teachers, and administrators matured as individuals as the campus emerged bet- ter than before. ttjfm £)iwwt,(y -IX Q$ji i -: Doing More — Doing It Better 5 6 Student Life Division eir first six oppo- irits to soar along polls.

Student Life _al o wn on t school as It was a year of doing more. Whether it was attending the Inter-Ciub Council ' s first annual bonfire, learning to adjust to the ever-changing campus life, or deciding what really was " the choice of a new generation, " students discovered hidden pleasures of school life, added a little pizazz, topped it off with en- thusiasm, and began doing it better. While some spent their Sunday afternoons water-ski- ing, others were content to catch the latest Hollywood hit at the local theater. Sixth graders became caught in the " middle " and high school students adjusted to having two lunch periods. WKRG TV 5 came to the middle school campus to shoot a feature for the 6 p.m. news. Earl B. Taylor captured local attention and the view- er ' s hearts. Outside of campus, com- munity growth influenced stu- dents ' lives. Not only did the three new fast food chains provide employment but brought growth to the area. Students became aware of the simple ways of life that surrounded them. Approach- ing new ideas head-on, they began to make things hap- pen. They were doing more; working all the time to make life better. During summer football practice, young volun- teers could be found carrying equipment and ice onto the practice field, washing uniforms or even cleaning up the Lions ' Den. Sylvester McGas- ter and Mark Jones fix a damaged football during a late afternoon practice. l?Mt,ffT-(Hi • i I Making an impact Winds and pounding surf make Elena ' s presence known Bread and tape were nowhere to be found. Batteries and flash- lights became prized posses- sions. Football games all along the coast were postponed until further notice. Residents of the Alabama Gulf Coast taped or boarded windows, packed a couple changes of clothes, gathered cherished photo- graphs, and fled inland in bump- er to bumper traffic. Sitting on pins and needles coastal families tuned in to lo ' cal radio and television stations awaiting news of the approach ing hurricane. On Friday, Au gust 30, predictions targeted coastal Mississippi as the point of landfall, with highest winds aimed at the Alabama coast. Residents spent 16 anxious hours as the fickle storm stalled offshore. Finally, the storm etched eastward and an all-clear was signaled around 5 p.m. causing residents to breathe a sigh of relief. Suddenly, the Florida panhandle appeared to be the target of Elena ' s fury. Unaffected families returned home to untape windows, put pictures back on walls, and move lawn furniture out of the house and back into the yard. Rescheduled for Saturday night, area football games gave residents the opportunity to re- cover from the false alarm and share hurricane shelter exper- iences while cheering on their favorite teams. The respite was brief, though, as Elena made a 180- degree turn and edged closer and closer again to the Alabama coast on Sunday. Weary resi- dents repeated their previous precautionary measures and evacuated immediately. Pound- ing waves and rising winds fore- told the imminent danger. As the hurricane gained mo- mentum, treetops of young pine trees hugged the ground. Branches snapped. Winds whipped along the coast leav- ing a trail of broken windows, loose shingles, and sinking boardwalks. Elena had arrived. Early the next day, power company employees went to work restoring electricity to ap- proximately 8000 Baldwin County homes. Older family members dragged branches from their yards and removed tape and boards from windows, while school-age children re joiced upon hearing that sum ' mer vacation had been ex tended for two days. Clean-up crews on the beach began clear ing sand and debris off impass- able roads, with beachfront property owners tallying dam age to homes and coastline Combined damage to busin esses and shoreline, as well as loss of Labor Day weekend rev- enue, totaled an estimated $25 million. Crashing into the coast, Elena stole shingles and took tree limbs with her, but the shin- gles were replaced, plant life re- grew, and bread appeared on store shelves once again. I P Hurricane Elena I Hurricane Dressing Masking tape became a coveted arti- cle in Baldwin County during the last days of August. Windows were taped on homes and stores to prevent the shat- tering of glass from violent winds and flying objects. All Washed Up Remains of what used to be a pier in Orange Beach show results of the storm damage. Trees and other debris covered the yards of coastal homes.

Seeing double? Had the student body been am- bushed by exploding blue and gold paint cans? No — to all of the above. Football spirit dictat- ed the fashion scene during the week of homecoming. Festivities and floatmaking consumed students ' time both during and after school hours. Dress up week, sponsored by the cheerleaders, kicked off homecoming fever, inspiring pink hairstyles, twin dressing, Smurf sheets converted to to- gas, and Alabama or Auburn sweatshirts. The 14 parade par- ticipants secured flat bed trai lors and found barns or large ga rages to keep them in Gathering newspaper, crepe pa per, carpet rolls, and manne quins, they designed floats, cars, and station wagons to the theme " Catch the Spirit. " Enthusiasm reached its peak on Friday as students splat- tered in blue and gold invaded the campus. Spirit exploded at 2:35 p.m. when a jam-packed gym nasium crowd released all their pent-up energy while cheering, chanting, and rocking with the band. Five male facul- ty members, masquerading as Northview homecoming queen hopefuls, pranced in front of the pep rally crowd amid whoops, whistles, and cat calls. Carrying his cheerleader escort onto the gym floor, Coach Eddie Willis won over the crowd and, based on the acclamation of the roar- ing mob, was crowned " queen. " Following the rally, students streamed out of the nearest doors and hopped onto parade entries to take the scenic route through town. The American Field Service (AFS) entry cap- tured the best float award, while the Student Government Asso- ciation (SGA) won the competi- tion for the best decorated win- dow. Pre-game festivities ended when Michelle Schumacher was crowned queen before ap- proximately 5000 homecoming fans. Cheers and " high-fives " erupted from the sky-high Lions as they prepared to take re- venge on the Morthview Cou- gars, a team they had been un- able to overcome in their two previous encounters. Prospects for a victory climaxed when split end Herbert Casey cradled a 61 -yard Kerry Flowers pass and strolled into the endzone with 2:15 left on the clock; but 12 plays later a touchdown pass from Northview ' s Brian Nomberg to split end Chris Holm silenced the home crowd and sent the game into over- time. Winning the coin toss, the Cougars elected to play defense first, and the Lions sent in their offensive team for a shot at the overtime victory. Hopes for a homecoming win and an unde- feated season crashed when a Flowers bootleg pass was inter- cepted on first down. Kicker Clark Lopez immediately took the field and booted a 27-yard field goal for a 10-7 Norfhview victory. Hearts sinking and heads bowed, stunned players, coaches, and fans quietly exit- ed the stadium. Five-hundred fifty withdrew to the gym for the SGA-sponsored dance, while some planned to go to the Shrimp Festival the next day. Others simply went home to re- cover. However students chose to deal with the defeat, the knowledge that the team had al- ready secured a post-season play off spot left them looking for a rematch — and a cham- pionship title.

Students find a special friend fielps break tfie humdrum of school days. Heart disease Vital signs fluctuate due to epidemic It struck without warning. Af- fecting students of every age, it spread across campuses in epi demic proportions. As the con dition reached its peal , stu dents felt its effects in full force The symptoms; loss of appe tite, sweaty palms, weak knees inattention in class. The diagno- sis: love. Exchanging smiles and shy glances with the object of your affections, you noticed the first signs of the condition as early as kindergarten and first grade. Usually caught in the middle, the trusty mutual best friend passed along that all-too-famil- iar note, " I like you. Do you like me? Yes or no. Circle one. " More often than not the answer was yes — that is, until someone more interesting came along to steal your heart a few days lat- er. As you matured, so did your methods of attracting the oppo- site sex. Notes abandoned, you sent verbal messages via your faithful go-between, praying for favorable reports in return. If this method proved unsuccess- ful. Plan B went into effect. In- corporating the notion that ev- eryone likes to receive flowers, your second strategy was to send your true love a homecom- ing or Valentine carnation. If, after all these efforts, unsuc- cessful results followed, you moped and mourned for two to three weeks and then went on to greener pastures. In high school, however, the obsession reached full strength. Walking around in a daze for the first several weeks of school, you admired your heartthrob at a distance, memorizing his schedule and accidentally bumping into him between classes. With a great deal of prodding from supportive friends, you finally worked up the courage to speak to " him. " As you casually happened to pass him between his first peri- od English class and second pe- riod American History class you managed a weak " hi " and a quick smile between clenched teeth. Flashing those pearly whites, he returned the greeting and, as you leaned on the clos- est solid object you could find for support, your heart nearly stopped. Whether or not these prelimi- nary encounters blossomed into deeper relationships, the experience of " falling in love " gave meaning and direction to students lives, as well as spic- ing up the otherwise mundane school experience. 14 Love Epidemic Paper changes hands as Lezley Ever- age passes a note to Rusty Roberson.

Did we even stop to think about the damage it did to our teeth or about the hole it put in our pockets? Of course not! Chocolate would remain a hot item forever. It was a proven fact that the average person consumed about 10 pounds of chocolate in a year. But the thought of gaining weight, aggravating acne, etc., didn ' t even seem to phase us one bit. However, a study by Dental Research did conclude that chocolate may be less damaging to your teeth than many other snacks. The canteen offered a wide range of chocolate items, but for those chocoho- lics whose desire could not be satisfied with this selection of high calorie snacks, the option to skip always re- mained. — Sondra Callaway -»a % Canteen vs. Cafeteria It was a proven fact that many students spent their mon- ey at the canteen rather than in the cafeteria. Why? You may have asked yourself this ques- tion many times but never seemed to come up with the correct answer. Actually, there wasn ' t a correct answer. Still, there were many fallacies con- cerning this question. Students seemed to have the idea that the cafeteria food tasted like week-old leftovers, and in some cases, students swore that it was true. Students, rather than taking a chance, ended up going to the canteen. There, they knew goo- dies were always to be found. Unlike the cafeteria, the can- teen had a variety of snacks ranging from candy to break- fast rolls and snacks to soft drinks. The canteen outranked the cafeteria nearly 3 to 1 in a selected poll. The canteen in many opinions would always be best. Sorry, cafeteria work- ers — no privileges or sympathy was allowed. When the junk food craze attacked, you found yourself standing in the long line just like the rest of us. — Tom Early r Cola Wars The classic coke which is now the new coke is really the old coke before they got the new coke and decided the old coke was really better and invented something different which really was the same as the original coke but has not made it back to the exact thing as the old coke yet, but they ' re working on it . . . Are you confused? Well, you ' re not alone; so were cola lovers all over the world. The competition between cold drinks was big, and manufac- turers tried anything to win the consumers. Taste tests were taken ev- erywhere: in malls, homes, and even in classrooms. Whether it was between Coke and Pepsi, Sprite and 7- up, or Dr. Pepper and Mr. Pibb, cola companies got no rest until they were content with their products ' popular- ity. Commercials were aired that brought students to class singing the tune of their favorite soft drink. Because of tight competi- tion, companies were hard at work producing new inven- tions that would hopefully take over the market. Diet colas, drinks with no saccha- rin and colas sweetened with the newest craze Mutra Sweet also added length to the commercials. Choices for which soft drink you pre- ferred soon took up a whole aisle in the supermarket, and instead of one drink machine at the corner store, there were two or three. Some students preferred to stick to their old favorites while others chose to try new drinks such as the latest Cherry Coke, but no matter which was chosen, they all worked the same and man- aged to quench students ' thirsts whether yours had su- gar or not. — Susan Lips- comb 18 Gold Nugget Do Die c ancer — What is it? It happens to be a disease in which cells multiply without con- trol. What causes it? Or better yet, what doesn ' t cause it? " Nobody really knows what causes cancer because there are so many different types, " commented student Kerri Sharpe. There is no single cause that brings cancer, but there are many factors that contribute to its development. Every- body has an opinion about cancer. When Paige Watler was asked about it, she re- marked, " Just about everything you do in your life contributes some risk to cancer. " This is true. It is proven that most things you put in your mouth nowadays contrib- ute in some way to cancer. There Is even a two percent chance that lettuce causes cancer. Kerri also said, " There really isn ' t anything that doesn ' t cause cancer be- cause there are so many different types. " There are about 100 types of cancer known today. These types range from skin cancer to cancer of the respiratory system. Only one-third of all persons treated for cancer recover completely or at least live longer. People hear the word cancer so much these days that the thought of cancer really doesn ' t express the real horror of the dis- ease. Cancer — should we really be con- cerned?— Meredith Walsh @ or$$$ What did Diet Coke, Sugar Free Kool-Aid, Pepsi, y-Gp, Mestea Free, and some 55 oth- er products have in common? Nutra Sweet. Nutra Sweet was the brandname for the hot-selling, low-calorie sweetening ingredi- ent aspartame. Two hundred times as sweet as sugar, it appeared to be safer than saccharin. Nutra Sweet was symbolized by a red and white swirl, but some said its true symbol was the dollar sign. Most people were first introduced by a sales promotion when gumballs made of Nutra Sweet were randomly sent out by mail. Nutra Sweet was accidentally discov- ered in 1965 by a Searle scientist research- ing an ulcer drug. It was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in July of 1983 for use in soft drinks. Nutra Sweet did have its setbacks, though. It was 20 times as expensive as saccharin and cost 50 percent more than sugar. Other drinks lasted about eight months on the shelves while drinks made with Nutra Sweet lost their sweetness after four to six months. This new artificial ingre- dient had a slow start, but it was the most talked about sweetner around. — Daniel Thompson Gold Nugget 19 SHAPING UP Sitting in an easy chair eating candy and drinking a soft drink or lying on the couch watching television all day were things of the past. Students soon became bored with these pastimes and joined a new craze — exercising. Whether it was jogging, aerobic dancing, swimming, or just plain walking, exercising was the thing for everyone. Over the past five years people became more health conscious. Working out seemed to be the answer. More doctors than ever recommended special exercises for patients who had suffered from heart attacks or strokes. Because working out in a studio under the direction of a teacher became expen- sive, students bought tape recordings and records of exercises for use in the home. From Mousercise to Jane Fonda ' s Wor- kout, students of all ages worked out at their convenience. A time-worn hobby set to the most mod- ern music was the ultimate health idea and the fad of many students. — LaSharen Knight Not only did students exercise on their own tinne but during their school time as well.

Energy cos of dancing = 7 calories minute. ' Sweat ' to Death Sweats! This word did not refer to perspiration dripping from your forehead or the feeling you had when your mother caught you doing something you shouldn ' t have been doing. It was a type of clothing, and many students found them very comfortable for just about everything. Did you need something to dress out in for P.E. class on a chilly day? Well, an insulat- ed pair of sweats was just the ticket. Students found sweatpants to be a welcome alternative to shorts and on a cold day a warm choice. Students also wore sweats to bum around the house in when a warm, comfortable outfit was appropriate. Mem- bers of organizations pre- ferred sweatshirts to T-shirts to advertise their member- ship. So next time someone mentions the word " sweats, " don ' t turn around to check for your mother or wipe your forehead; they could be talking about some- thing to wear. — Niko Cuellar Sweatsuits are popular items among students of all ages. Stu- dents enjoy the comfort and warmth the suits provide. 20 Gold Nugget Burn ' Em Up With the thought down inside of those pounds disappearing from their stomachs, students imagined pictures of a beautiful, shapely body. Each had his own goal, whether it was to look like Sylvester Stallone or to fit into a size 7 swimsuit before the school year was up. Some students preferred working off the pounds simply by cutting back on food. Dieters ' magazines could be purchased to help out meal planning, selection of the right foods, and a daily exercise plan. Non- prescription diet pills were available in drug stores to help stop stu- dents ' cravings for food. Diet plans had become common in many homes. Swimming, jogging, and weight lifting attracted the more athletically inclined students to shape their bodies up instead of losing unwanted pounds. Dieting had crazed the school and become a daily sacrifice for many students. They skipped the junk food at break and stuck to a nutritious green salad for lunch as each hoped to soon reach his goal. — Susan Lipscomb I ' m gonna live forever I ' m gonna learn how to fly (High) I feel it comin ' together. People will see me and cry. I ' m gonna make it to heaven. Light up the sky like a flame. I ' m gonna live forever Baby, remember my name Some preferred tap shoes, others preferred tennis shoes. Some were graceful moving to classical tunes while others looked like they were stomping a bug as the stereo blared new wave music. Common dances ranged from regular pop, doing moves such as the conga or breaking to the newest moves in punk music, or the classical old time favorites of jazz and ballet. Students attended school dances rocking the gym and civic center with their own styles. Some students attended dance classes for tap, jazz and ballet, trying to improve their skills. Tumbling Hills and Green Acres School of Dance were examples of popular schools around town They taught steps and moves that would never go out of style New wavers rolled on the floor and ran into each other perform ing the newest creation, slam dancing. With the different move ments and steps students did, each had his own preference. Be- cause of the definition each dance had, students chose their favorite styles to express their personality. — Susan Lipscomb SKIPPING MEALS DIETS Gold Nugget 21 Black Caskets " W; hizzip click " had become a familiar sound to students since tlie videoca- sette recorder (VCR) invasion hit. Introduced nearly ten years ago, the VCR became a popular form of home entertainment and changed the future of vid- eo. Now, instead of students each being out $4 for a movie, they could scrape around $2.50 together and choose from a wide range of their favorite movies, both new and old. More and more students stayed home to watch movies rather than drive to Mobile, Pensacola, or Foley ' s Country Twin. However, VCR ' s did a num- ber of things besides playing pre-recorded movies. The days of choosing between two inter- esting shows were over. Stu- dents could just pop in a blank video tape and let their VCR re- cord for future viewing. The re- corder was also useful for re- cording favorite shows when one was out of town or at a ball- game. Remote control provided an effortless means of operating any kind of VCR. High-fidelity digital stereo tracks helped to make the recorder more appeal- ing as well. No matter how advanced one VCR was over another, they all seemed to have one thing in common — they played exactly what the viewer wanted to see. — Rebecca Donelson " This is Marathon Mike with WABB FM 97, " was a familiar sentence which drifted into stu- dents ' ears. Students tuned in to popular radio stations such as WABB 97, GlOO, 92 ZEW, and the newest station. Wizard 104. Rock music, although de- spised by many parents, was everywhere. Students grouped together to see concerts per- formed by popular artists such as Kool and the Gang, Amy Grant, and Sting. Record sales soared as merchants made big bucks selling albums for groups like Wham and Lionel Richie. Saturated with Rock-n-Roll fe- ver, students with jamboxes hanging from their palms or perched on their shoulders were frequently seen heading to ball- games or the beach. Whether it was pop, rock, or contemporary, students knew that " Rock-n-Roll is here to stay! " — Amy Barber Jamming out to Ratt before school, Dale Kaechele adjusts his car stereo for a better reception. Music Invaders What country had the best mu- sic in 1986? Was it Great Brit- ain, Canada, or the United States? If you guessed all of the above, you were right. Music from all of these nations was very hot on the charts. British bands and singers made their biggest comeback since the 1960 ' s. At that time, the British invasion was sweep- ing across the nation with groups like the Beatles, who blew their teenage fans off their feet. Bands from England once again took the rock scene by storm in ' 86, but this time with acts such as Duran Duran, Wham, and Paul Young. Ready For The World burst into the forefront of American music with their debut song " Oh, Sheila, " and soon after its release, it became a number one hit on American Top 40. Acts that had been known and respected for years in the United States hit the charts as well. Bruce Springsteen topped the charts with " Born in the U.S.A. " while Billy Joel at- tempted to persuade teenagers against committing suicide in his song " You ' re Only Human. " Canadians had their share of hits also. Corey Hart ' s and Bryon Adams ' songs were hits among the numerous acts that soared to the top of the charts and the bottom of girls ' hearts. Whether the music students listened to was from Great Brit- ain, Canada, or the U.S., it all was number one with stu- dents. — Tereasa Anderson 22 Gold Nugget Box Office Hits Despite the fact that one might have HBO, Showtime, Movie Channel, or even a VCR, there was just something about going to the movies that was a little more exciting. Whether they were comedies, dramas, mysteries, or love stories, mov- ies continuously drew students out of the house and into the theater. Sylvester Stallone returned to the screen when he produced and starred in " Rocky IV " which went on to become a blockbuster hit. Patrick Swazey became an even bigger hit than when he co-starred in the TV mini-series " The North and The South " after co-starring with Rob Lowe in " Young Blood. " " Family Ties " Michael J. Fox made his movie debut after tak- ing the lead role in the box of- fice smash " Back To The Fu- ture.

Elvis the Second? Although he competed against top names such as Tina Turner and Michael Jackson and was compared to the " King of Rock-n-Roll, " Bruce Spring- steen managed to win hearts of teens and adults all across the world. He was known as " The Boss " and he became famous for hits like " Dancing in the Dark " and his latest release " Born In The U.S.A. " He dressed loosely in ragged blue jeans and a dingy white t-shirt. Bruce held soldout concerts all over the U.S. He was also involved in the benefit Farm Aid concert to help farm- ers across the nation. Rising above hotselling al- bums such as " We Are The World " and Corey Hart ' s hit re- lease " Boy In A Box, " Bruce ' s " Born In The U.S.A. " was named the top album of the year.

These bits of informa- tion were what one heard during the first few weeks of school while soap lovers exchanged happen- ings on their favorite day- time shows. The dedicated soap watchers sometimes came down with last min- ute " bugs " so they could stay home to catch up on who was sleeping with who, who got a divorce, or who was about to be mur- dered.

You ' ve now placed your- self in the same situation that many a student before you has faced. You ' re cramming. Most students procrastinated studying until the last minute and were then forced into cram- ming. It did not matter if stu- dents had to take a ten word vocabulary test or even a six weeks test, the final resort was always cramming. However, some teachers discovered a method of preventing students from procrastinating — pop quizzes. Although students were con- stantly warned by teachers to not wait until the last minute, cramming sometimes proved to be the only way out of what stu- dents had once again gotten themselves into. — Daniel Thompson. Seeing Double Seeing Double Have you ever thought that you were seeing double? Some teachers thought they were when they saw a set of twins walking down the hall. For many twins, like Jacob and Joseph Prim, it was easy to play tricks on other people or trade places and fool the teacher. " Some people call us Twidle Dum and Twidle Do, " said Daxtor and Matthew Goforth, who really liked being twins. Some parents like (heir twins to dress alike, but others didn ' t. Even though faternal twins could easily be told apart, identical twins were almost impossible to identify. Most twins were put into separate classes so the teacher would not have so many problems. At times, it seemed that their other classmates could tell them apart easier than the teachers. Twins, sometimes confusing to outsiders, stayed busy keeping people on their toes. — Vicki Ewing V £y ' oi D Ruff, ruff, ruff ... the royal dog of the school. Earl B.

Human inter- est reporter Keith Brunson and his cameraman visited the middle school campus to do a report called " Teacher ' s Pet. " The story introduced Earl to the audience and gave the account of how Earl came to be adopted as the school dog. Film footage showed that Earl was treated just like any other student. Mr. Brunson made one major observation about Earl when he said, " Unlike most students. Earl B. Taylor has no ambition to graduate. " Earl made school his home year round. During the sum- mer he stuck close to Mr. Ivan Jones, but as soon as school started, he returned to room 8 where he received food, water and attention from Miss Deborah Lundberg and her seventh grade students. Stray dogs came and went, but seldom did a dog come that got as much attention as Earl — certainly none were cunning enough to become a TV star like Earl B.

Whether their vacation con- sisted of traveling out of state or just having time away from school, stu- dents were always well-prepared for their summer vacations. Some stu- dents worked during the summer, while others traveled, visited friends and relatives, or just stayed home and entertained themselves. Working students found jobs being cash register attendants, cleaning condominiums, working as stock- boys, and babysitting. Students who traveled visited Texas, Washington, Georgia, Tennessee or even Mexico or France. Other students found that just staying home with their families and taking it easy was a good way to spend summer break. Vacations for students varied, but no matter what students did during the summer, the best part was just having a break from school. — Daniel Thompson nsms Gold Nugget 25 LESIEK 1CE As he peeked around the corner, he slow- ly drew out his telescopic eyes, his secret weapon. The binoculars belonged to that dreaded discipline principal. Coach Lester Smith. He stalked the school like an Indian, turning up whenever you least expected him. He was a pro looking for any clues leading him to a student out of line. Waiting in parking lots, he checked students as they left school in cars and trucks just to make sure that none of them were skipping. He made his way around the campus daily scoping for students who might be break- ing a rule. Often spending time during break and lunch in the restrooms, he watched for rulebreakers smoking those long-awaited cigarettes or sneaking their heartthrobs ' names on walls. The crimes- topper worked all day long calling students into the office to verify earlier absences. Coach Smith was that dreaded administra- tor in charge of punishment. He gave out sentences and assigned expulsions. What- ever students did, they had to be careful not to step out of line because Coach Smith was on the prowl. — Susan Lipscomb Smoke Inhalation Engulfed in a puff of smoke, you breathlessly make your way to a clear airpocket to wheeze a breath of unpolluted air.

Puff- ing away on their " cancer sticks " , the smokers, seemingly oblivious to the threat of at least a three-day suspension if caught, shrewdly take shelter behind bathroom stalls as those urgently needing to get in wait breathlessly outside. Dying of smoke inhalation, and un- able to find any more airpockets, you rush outside, grateful to once again inhale oxygen instead of nic- otine.

The epi- sode went down in school histo- ry as the X-men incident. The X-men incident in actual ity was the product of a misun derstanding on how one was al lowed to decorate his locker The X-men, Jason Blake, Geof- frey Lipscomb, and Edward Norman, were under the im- pression that one could paint the outside as well as the inside of his locker, whereas Mr. Wen- zel apparently said that only the inside could be painted. The X-men took their name from a comic book serial The Uncanny X-men. They used a stencil crafted by Jason to do a professional looking act of van- dalism in neon green and yellow on lockers numbered in the 870 ' s and on the adjacent wall. They admitted they got a little carried away. The neon stencil work did not pass unnoticed, but instead was brought to the attention of school authorities. There was a fifty dollar reward placed for in- formation leading to the convic- tion of the X-men. It was at this time that school spirit emerged for these young rebels. Many posters went up around the campus pertaining to the X-men like " We love the X-men " and " The X-men will return " as well as the following slogan hanging by the canteen window; " Is your life worth fifty dollars? " Two of the X-men were turned in. Edward, however, held out. He eventually turned himself in, however, on a plea bargain in exchange for not hav- ing to quit R.O.T.C. After par- ent conferences and suggested appropriate discipline, punish- ment was settled at a three-day suspension and payment in cash to cover the reward mon- ey. Concerning the punish- ment, the group responded, " In actuality, we three feel we had a three-day paid vacation. ' — Jennifer Lange Kti-LoQ-e Sa o l No hugging, kissing, or holding hands on campus. These were a few things students were told not to do during school hours. As Cupid ' s arrows were flying and striking students. Coach Lester Smith was slapping them with three-day suspensions for breaking the rules. At the beginning of the school year, students were given a list of all the rules which fell under the topic of " Lovemaking on Cam- pus. " The list, given out by homeroom teachers, was to be read by the students and then taken home for parents to read as well. Trying to stay clear of authorities when they got the urge to show affection, students found themselves caught in the middle of the Anti-Love War. — Alisa Johnson Good Grades Made Easy Just send $19.95 to Homemade Report Cards. P.O. Box 000, Foley, Al 36535 to change that F to an A. One easy step to good grades. It ' s risk free — unless of course you consider expulsion a danger. Several students caught on to making their own report cards on home computers and word processors soon after the high school adopted computerized grading in the fall of 1984. Some even sold their services to others. By the end of the second six weeks of the 1985 school year. Principal John Lee had located several of the guilty parties and given them ten-day suspensions and a warning. It was the same warning that the entire student body received in January. Students were required to sign a statement verifying that they were aware that making their own report cards was illegal copying of school documents and would be considered a " Class A " offense — punish- able by expulsion. Along with this warning came other preventative measures. A rubber stamp print of Mr. Lee ' s signature was required on report cards. The proposal for a school letterhead on the card also helped students to realize the seriousness of this deception. These preventions stopped a lot of the temptations of changing grades, but one couldn ' t say it stopped it altogether. As it ' s said — anything for the grade. — Jennifer Lange Gold Nugget 27 Stepping Out In Style Were shoes really an im- portant item in your ward- robe? Of course, they were. You didn ' t care how much you had to fork out, because you had to have shoes that were stylish. Style, not price, dictated the " in " craze in shoes. Prov- ing to people that Converse high tops were not only for basketball players, the com- pany soon produced a rain- bow of colors to be worn by girls as well as guys. Also, tennis shoes such as Tre- torns, Reeboks, Asahis, Adi- das, and Mikes were still found on the feet of many. Bringing out their designer talents, students created their own style of footwear. They simply bought a plain pair of $3 white tennis shoes and started drawing. The end product varied from a bal- loon bouquet to the expres- sion of what class was the greatest. No matter what color, size, or shape, shoes always seemed to put that extra ac- cent to favorite outfits. — Laura McConnell Coming in all styles and colors, shoes proved to be one of the great- est accessories a student could have in their closets. ' Mailed ' To Death You have jostled your way through crowded doorways, aisles, and people. Now, you have found just the thing you were looking for and are ready to head home. You have made your way through large crowds of people in the front of the store and are wondering what the problem was. Suddenly you see it is the line for the check-out counter. Scattered everywhere, malls were prob- ably the most popular places for shopping. When a student headed for the mall, Mobile or Pensacola was most likely to be the desti- nation. After an hour to get there three or more hours of wading through stores and crowds, even the most enthusiastic mall goer was sure to feel the strain. Christmas was the most hectic time of year to be at the malls, but students never knew what kind of crowd to expect. Going to the malls could be a lot of fun, but overdoing it could also cause some stu- dents to become " mailed " out. — Rebecca Donelson 28 Gold Nugget Flash That Tin Grin " Stainless steel sex appeal " may have been your motto if you were faced with 18 months of wires in your mouth. To some, braces were a nightmare, but to others, the thought of those perfect pearly whites made the pain seem worthwhile. Alisa Johnson commented, " Braces were a pain! " But for those tired of being teased about buckteeth, the solution was braces. Braces were worn for all kinds of reasons and by people of every age — high school, middle school, and elementary school students, and even some teachers. In a school poll, 130 students admitted to wearing braces at one time, while 200 stu- dents presently wore them. " Getting to check out of school for an orthodontist appointment was one of the few redeeming graces of braces, " exclaimed Tom Hand. Students as well as teach- ers were excused from classes to have wires tightened, " power chains " put on, or just have their metal looked at. Most people who had worn braces would agree that the best part of wearing braces was getting them off! — Amy Barber Plasti ic Fad Gummy bracelets had made their big invasion, a complete turnaround from the twist-a-beads and jelly shoes of the previous year. Not only one bracelet was worn but they were crowded from the wrist all the way to the elbow; some students even wrapped them around their fingers. These unusual ornaments were one of the least expen- sive trends of all time. The average cost was 25 cents; this encouraged the student body to buy them. — Tereasa Anderson Keeping up with the styles, students bought gummy bracelets. They sold at nearby dime stores for 25 cents. Dress To Excess Putting the twist back into the 50 ' s, the classy styles were back again. All of a sud- den the fit of the pant became snug to the body and cropped off at the leg. Stirrup pants were also worn with a big shirt — belted at the waist — or just a regular top or sweater. The " mad for plaid " craze didn ' t last very long, but the Guess jeans and tops were here to stay. Mickey Mouse, Goofy, and Minnie be- came familiar sights on sweatshirts, T- shirts, or even that big shirt that was used for a bathing suit cover-up. Coca-Cola showed that classic taste by designing a newly updated line of their own. Brooke Shields also had her own line of apparel. Looking as if one had dug into her grandfa- ther ' s closet, students found paisley shirts, jeans, or even boxers to be very popular. Jeans were still " in, " but if they had flow- er prints, that was even better. The slim- ness of the skirt with a " kick " pleat in the back was here once again. For the fall, layering of shirts with the bottom sleeve turned up was a must. Shirts were worn loose, collars turned up, and pants ' legs were cuffed, making people wonder if they were in the 80s or the 50 ' s. — Laura McCon- nell Gold Nugget 29 a Roll Tide or War Eagle? t became known as the Iron Bowl Classic. And if you were an Alabama fan, oh, what a classic Saturday, December 1, proved to be. The 51st Iron Bowl took place at Bir- mingham ' s Legion Field and was sold out months before the game itself. For Alabama and Auburn fans, their pa- tience was tried as they had to endure two weeks of waiting. However, the partying was only one week away. There were Ala- bama and Auburn theme parties, there were bets, and there were even semi-riots concerning which team was the better of the two. In the end, it seemed as though the spectators were doing more battling than the players of each team would be doing on Saturday; and what a battle it proved to be. The last six seconds of the game deter- mined the final outcome for both teams. The tee was set in place, and Alabama ' s 3 emerged on the field. On his shoulders lay the weight of Alabama ' s victory or defeat. For the Auburn defensive line, it proved to be a do or die situation. The kicker ' s foot made contact with the ball and seconds later the field goal was ruled good. Featured as the underdogs, the Crimson Tide had come from behind in the last mo- ments of the game to win what was consid- ered as " the most important game of the year. " Bama had won 23-21 in what was called a " Football Classic. " — Sondra Callaway Smith Wins Challenger Award He won it his sophomore year. He also won it when he was a junior. And of course, he won it his senior year. It was the first time any young man ha d ever received the honor three times, but there were always first times for everything, and Keith Smith proved that so. Put on by the Baptist churches in the Pensacola and Baldwin area, the Challenger Award Banquet was held annually. The ban- quet recognized a football player from each school represented who best displayed Christian behavior on and off the field. The recipient of the Challenger Award was voted on by his fellow teammates prior to the banquet itself. For Keith, winning was quite an " honor " . He had been recog- nized for his " winning " personality and the right attitude he had carried with him both on and off the football field. — Sondra Callaway 30 Gold Nugget Super Bowl XX Hhey even had a song about it. For the past 19 years, the best of the best met in this match which not only proved to be a challenge of physical abili- ty but also one of determination aiiu nerve. It alone would determine the 1 team in pro football as millions of specta- tors watched. It was Super Bowl XX, the " big daddy of all football events. " The matchup — Chicago Bears vs. Mew England Patriots. For both teams it was their first shot ever at the Super Bowl title. They were both New Orleans bound! Tickets sold like hotcakes and if one de- cided not to attend the Sunday battle, he was offered a wide range of alternatives. He could swap his ticket for $100 all the way up to a cruise to Europe on a luxury liner. But spectators were not the only ones who benefitted from the ordeal. For the City of New Orleans, Super Bowl meant an eco- nomic boom within the area. As fans from all across the nation poured into the city, millions and millions of dollars were poured into businesses. The New Orleans ' Super Dome staged the matchup on January 26 with kickoff at 4 p.m. Pre-game lasted longer than usual, which was said to be " a spectator ' s de- light. " The starting players were intro- duced and the coin tossed as the clock ticked nearer to kickoff. The Bears started off with the ball and as the last seconds ticked away, it was evident that they would end up with it. They had grasped their first Super Bowl victory by beating the Patriots 46-10. The Bears returned to Chicago the fol- lowing morning with exactly what they had desired to return with — the game ball. Su- per Bowl rings, and their first Super Bowl Title. — Sondra Callaway Football Fever When there was a slight nip in the air and leaves were changing to their autumn colors, it could only mean one thing — football season had arrived. For football enthusiasts, it meant six months of spine tingling excitement. It was good times and bad. There were victories, but unfortunately, there were also defeats. But fans somehow managed to recover except, of course, when their teams lost. It seemed from a non-football fan ' s point of view that football fans never got their fill of the game. They could sit hours upon hours watching it — Fri- day night to Monday night and then turn around and watch re-runs from Tuesday to Thursday. Their adrenalin would begin to flow and their blood pres- sure would start to rise. At some moments, it seemed as though their heart could take no more. And football did appear to be contagious. Fans became somewhat slack with their responsibilities, and others were able to notice a slight or sometimes even a major weight loss. The value of their dollar went unnoticed and budgets became rare and some- times even extinct. For football fans, there was an electrifying air from August until January. It was six months of being pacified by hearing the crashing of helmets or experiencing that " winning sensation " when touch- downs were made. It was football fever. — Sondra Callaway All County Team Herbert Casey Scott Crosby Kerry Flowers Derrick Nicholson Matt Maurin Mike McConnell Ben Todd Scotty Glrich All Area Team Herbert Casey Scott Crosby Kerry Flowers Derrick Nicholson Matt Maurin Mike McConnell Ben Todd Gold Nugget 31 Celebrations filled the air as the American Field Service (AFS) be- gan its 25th year of service. Kicking off the year in style, AFS held a reception at the Performing Arts Center on September 26 to introduce exchange students. Host parents were later given a reception at the Gift Horse, where they presented their ex- change students and told something about their activities. In 1960, Mrs. Jerry Reed, a former ex- change student, saw a need for an ex- change program in Foley. The Foley Rotary Club was contacted and asked to sponsor this project. Dr. Norman Van Weazel was in charge of a committee to set up his pro- gram. The AFS headquarters in New York, New York was contacted and the Foley AFS Chapter was formed with the Rotary Club underwriting the $1000 a year partici- pation fee. Of the original committee formed by Dr. Van Weazel, there were still two members present: Mr. Max Griffin and Mrs. Bebe Fos- ter, who served as president for the Foley AFS Chapter. The Foley AFS Chapter celebrated its 25th year of sharing with students from all over the world. In these 25 years, 33 fam- ilies from Foley had hosted 34 students from all over the world. Foley sent its own Katie Persons to Argentina and sponsored three exchange students — Rossana Castro from Costa Rica, Sheila Dhanda from Eng- land, and Rod Vaz from Portugal. — Ros- sana Castro Controversial Affair It was a controversy which swept the nation. For many, it took actor Rock Hud- son ' s death to make them more aware of the disease and to realize the serious nature of it. The disease was Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, or, as most knew it, AIDS. It was a proven fact that between 500,000 and one million Americans had the AIDS antibodies as estimated by Centers for Disease Control (CDC). CDC also pre- dicted that between 5 and 20 percent of those people would eventually get AIDS, and nearly everyone with antibodies was considered capable of infecting others, even though they may not have had visible signs of the syndrome themselves. Scientists believed that AIDS was spread by homosexuals or heterosexoals, blood transfusions, or the sharing of needles among drug addicts. A major advancement was made in AIDS research when scientists developed a test which determined whether or not antibodies were present in an individ- ual ' s blood. The best defense against AIDS was to stop its spread. But it seemed that what- ever suggestions were made to prevent the disease ' s spread, it always resulted in some form of policital controversy, and it left citi- zens wondering if there would ever be a cure or vaccine. — Sondra Callaway 32 Gold Nugget The CJnsinkable? oo V The unsinkable sank. Seventy-three years ago, on Sunday, April 14, 1912, at 11:40 p.m., an iceberg in the North Atlantic slashed a 300-foot gash in the starboard side of the worlds largest and most luxuri- ous ocean liner. After only two hours and 40 minutes, the ship that had been classi- fied as unsinkable was completely sub- merged in the icy Atlantic waters. Then, on Sunday, September 1, 1985, at 1 a.m., a long-awaited discovery was made by seven engineers on the U.S. Navy research vessel Knorr. Four hundred miles off the coast of Newfoundland and 12,000 feet under the sea lay the Titanic. A few days after the discovery, the research teams assembled to hold a memorial service for the 1503 who died in the disaster. — Kim Smith It was just another flight. On an ordinary day after an ordinary countdown, the Space Shuttle Challenger lifted off on a rou- tine mission. But this flight was to be far from the ordinary. Only 74 seconds after liftoff on Tuesday, January 28, the shuttle, with its seven crew members, exploded in the sky eight miles out from Kennedy Space Center. The crew, including school teacher Christa McAuliffe, died in the ex- plosion. Flags at Cape Canaveral and across the country were lowered to half staff. Presi- dent Ronald Reagan postponed his annual State of the Union Address. Family mem- bers of the crew and school children who had gone to the launch site to witness the shuttle ' s liftoff left in stunned silence. Attempting to console the school chil- dren who had turned out because a teacher was aboard, President Reagan said, " 1 know it ' s hard to understand, but sometimes painful things like this happen . . . It ' s all a part of the process of exploration and dis- covery. " — Kim Smith Gold Nugget 33 Just below the surface Underneath lies the heartbeat of a less than perfect world Terrorists flooded runways in tiie Middle East and held hun- dreds hostage in a united effort to bring worldwide attention to their cause. From the Palestin- ian hijacking of TWA Flight 847 in June to the November hijack- ing of an Egyptian airliner, ter- rorists, trained and harbored by Omar Khadafy in Libya, endan- gered overseas travel and caused the temporary closings of several airports. The hazards of air travel mul- tiplied with the phenomenal number of air crashes. A mili- tary transport carrying 248 American Gl ' s home for Christ- mas crashed off the coast of Newfoundland, leaving no sur- vivors. Five hundred twenty died in the mountain crash of a Japan airliner. On December 31, a plane carrying singer Rick Nelson and his band from Ala- bama to Dallas, Texas, caught fire and crashed, killing all pas- sengers. The year ' s crashes left 2000 dead. Natural disasters encom- passed landmasses worldwide in an unexpected series of earthquakes, volcanoes, and hurricanes. Burying thousands alive under rubble and debris, a Mexico City earthquake left 5000 dead and 150,000 home- less. Six hurricanes ravaged the coastal Onited States, causing $5 billion in damage and 36 deaths. Then, in November, ashes and lava cascaded down the Andes, leaving over 20,000 dead or missing in its wake. In the world of medicine, doc- tors and researchers made breakthroughs in their quest for improved health. William Shroeder continued to live after an artificial heart transplant, while President Ronald Reagan successfully underwent sur- gery for colon cancer. The medical community continued to be baffled, however, over the spreading Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) epidemic. Claiming 14,000 lives during ' the year, the disease achieved its highest level of publicity with the death of its most famous victim, movie star Rock Hudson. Overseas, political unrest es- calated and hunger abated somewhat among the turbu- lence in Africa. As the struggle over apartheid intensified, over 900 blacks died violently in pro- test of their country ' s racial policies. South African Bishop Desmond Tutu won the Nobel Peace Prize while trying to alle- viate the plight of blacks in his country. While the conflict over apartheid continued, thousands of famine victims in Ethiopia re- ceived lifesaving nourishment through the combined efforts of 45 of America ' s top recording stars. The result of the collabo- ration was the hit single " We Are the World, " which was re- leased in January of ' 85. When the group donated all proceeds to the starving in Africa, singers worldwide jumped onto the charity bandwagon. As a result, the July Live Aid concert bridged the Atlantic to provide 16 hours of nonstop rock that netted $70.5 million for the hungry in the desolated country of Ethiopia. Politics bridged the Atlantic also as the summit meeting be- tween President Reagan and So- viet leader Gorbachev brought new hope to Russian-American relations. Domestically, the deficit in the CIS budget soared, Congress wrestled with imports and tax revision, and an espio- nage ring involving an ex-Navy communications specialist was uncovered. Amid worldwide and domes- tic turmoil, sports brought relief and entertainment to millions. Twenty-two-year-old William " The Refrigerator " Perry stormed onto the sports scene as a defensive tackle for the Chi- cago Bears. With a 22-inch neck, a 48-inch waist, and 34- inch thighs, the 308-pound rookie was the undisputed hea- viest man in National Football League (NFL) history. Statewide, bragging rights were put on the line once again in the annual Iron Bowl Classic. Be- hind 22-23 with only six sec- onds left to play, the Alabama Crimson Tide put their fate in the hands (or feet) of junior kick- er Van Tiffin. Under intense pressure from Auburn defend- ers, Tiffin booted the ball straight through the uprights to give the Tide a 25-23 victory. At the end of the regular season, Auburn tailback Bo Jackson was awarded the Heisman Tro- phy at the Downtown Athletic Club in New York City. Making a first in a sport re- quiring height and agility, six- foot Lynette " Leaping Lizard " Woodard became the first fe- male Harlem Globetrotter in the team ' s 60-year history. In baseball, milestones were also reached. Another record breaker, 20-year-old Dwight Gooden became the youngest player ever to win the Cy Young award. But overshadowing all these landmark accomplish- ments, " Sports Illustrated " dis- covered baseball phenomenon Sidd Finch, who learned to throw 168 mph fast balls in Ti- bet. Mouths agape, sports en- thusiasts spread the news about this super-natural pitcher across the country. It was al- most too good to be true. As a matter of fact, it was too good to be true. The magazine ' s ' 85 April Fool ' s article on the newest sports sensation had millions believing in a pitcher who was nonexistent. Another form of media, tele- vision, saw the comeback of family oriented entertainment. The number one and two shows in the ratings, " The Cosby Show " and " Family Ties, " cen- tered around the relations with- in the family unit. " Miami Vice, " with its hit soundtrack, glamorous beach setting, and hot co-stars enthralled televi- sion viewers on Friday nights at 9 p.m. The shows soundtrack rocketed through the charts and reached music ' s number one position. Music and movies joined forces to provide two-way blockbusters. The year ' s top box office smash, " Beverly Hills Cop, " featured Eddie Mur- phy as sly law enforcer Axel Fo- ley, while two of the movie ' s songs, " Axel F " and " Neutron Dance, " bolted into the pop charts. Riding high on his movie success, Murphy debuted as a singer. The year ' s second hot- test motion picture, " Back to the Future, " also produced its share of popular songs. Huey Lewis ' s " Back in Time " and " Power of Love " from the mov- ie ' s soundtrack had movie mu- sic fans humming along. Counterbalancing each oth- er, the year ' s major news items were speckled with natural di- sasters, recordbreakers, terror- ists, and peacemakers. Sports, television, and movies provided a needed diversion from the death and destruction that was always just below the surface. 34 News Into The Facts Scanning an article on the Phillipine elections, Chris Bogg s scopes the world- wide scene.

The decorations, which took approximately Five hours to put up, came down within the first hour of the dance. Frenzy strikes Middle school students prepare for their first prom It was the day before one of the most exciting events sixth to eighth grade students would ever experience. An unheard of frenzy surrounded the middle school. For teachers, the com- motion evoked memories of for- mer high school days. Weeks before, young ladies could be seen buying jewelry and other accessories to match their dresses, while young men could be observed choosing just the right corsages for their dates. What could have been important enough to cause such a bustle at the middle school? The event, which was held on April 1 1 , was the middle school prom. Amid the red, blue, and yel- low balloons and streamers put up by the middle school student council, 26 eighth graders stepped forward to receive cer- tificates of recognition on the night of the prom. The stu- dents, who were recognized for their achievements in varying areas, were nominated by the officers of the student council for king and queen and were voted on by eighth grade teach- ers. As a result, Mark Messick was crowned prom king and Wyndi Pinckney was crowned queen. Although the dress code for the prom was semi-formal, most students came decked out in their formal gowns and tux- edos. Not only splurging on at- tire, students forked out more money for pictures and tickets. Pictures were made by Olan Mills for SU a package, and tickets, which sold for $4 single and $5 a couple, netted over $700 for the student council. Living up to their theme " Par- ty All the Time, " the more than 250 sixth, seventh, and eighth graders in attendance stepped over and danced on the stream- ers and balloons that had been torn down within the first hour of the dance. Music provided by the Hound Dog from WABB kept students rocking from 7-1 1 p.m. By the time the night was over, students felt they had tast- ed a little sample of high school life.

How: Any way one could. Catching the spirit of the con- test, students from grades six through twelve came up with creative ways to rake in the money. Beginning on Friday, Janu- ary 31, students held car wash- es; sold doughnuts; raffled jam boxes, color televisions, and shotguns; and sold candy- grams. At the middle school, students took fundraising a step further. Holding a sexy legs contest, a Hawaiian contest, a Money Go for it Mr. Muscle competition, and a nerd contest, seventh and eighth graders charged admis- sion for viewing the events which took place at 7:45 a.m. When the night of the Miss Blue and Gold dance finally ar- rived on February 14, students filed into the gym to discover the winner of the contest. After dancing to tunes played by CJ the DJ for two hours, students gathered around to hear the re- sults of the contest. Taking in $600.62, Shelley Leonard captrued the first place trophy and a $30 prize for Mrs. Trixie Phillips ' eighth grade homeroom. Allison Gates, who raised $290.77, won the $25 prize for Mrs. Peggy Ratcliff ' s homeroom when she was named first runner-up. Mrs. Lynda Walden ' s seventh grade homeroom contestant Lezley Everage collected $248.00 to win second runner-up and gar- nish $15 for her homeroom.

Changing the number of contes- tants from 18 to 24, the club also excluded tenth and elev- enth graders for the first time. Also a new addition, the club included a Miss Congeniality category with the traditional beauty and popularity categor- ies. Another innovation of the pageant was the addition of " lit- tle sisters. " Each contestant chose a girl from the ninth, tenth, or eleventh grade to be responsible for bringing refresh- ments and serving during inter- mission. After the decision to change the format of the pageant had been made, voting for pageant contestants took place on Janu- ary 29. When the announce- ment of contestants had been made on January 30, a flurry of preparations began. Almost im- mediately, the girls chose their escorts and little sisters. The day of the pageant drew closer and on March 8, plans were finalized. The day all had been anticipating had arrived, and " pre-pageant jitters " gripped contestants as well as escorts and nervous family members. Arriving at the Civic Center at 5:30 p.m., contestants and escorts posed for pictures while little sisters brought in refresh- ments, took up tickets, and handed out programs. The lights dimmed as Colonel Walter Petrie began to intro- duce the contestants. One at a time the first 12 contestants walked down the aisle and were met by their escorts as Lena Crawley and Ms. Jo Solorzano played their chosen songs. After the first group of 12 girls had taken the stage, the curtain was drawn and the stage cleared. Then the second group of 12 girls entered. The curtain was drawn, all 24 contestants and their escorts stood on stage together as the curtains re- opened, then the judges gath- ered in an adjoining room to make their decision as pageant members and the audience re- laxed during intermission. After a 20-minute discussion, the judges reappeared, the contes- tants and their escorts took the stage one last time, and Colonel Petrie announced the results. With emotions back to nor- mal and tear-stained makeup touched up, contestants, es- corts, little sisters, and their dates went to Bear Point Marina to relax while eating prime rib or a seafood platter. The day they had been building up to for weeks was finally history. Little sisters, Kristen Pearcy, Meredith Walsh, and Terry Schmitt prepare to serve drinks during intermission. Awaiting the start of the show, escorts mingle backstage trying to get rid of some nervousness. Carefully scoring each girl, the judges have the job of choosing one alternate and one beauty queen. Ready for their debut, Kristi Kittrell, Stephanie McOill, Lisa Mikkelsen, and Tammy Montgomery wait to enter. 40 Beauty Pageant The Final Moment Just hearing her new title, beauty queen.

Beauty Pageant 41 Living it up On prom night students splurge to make the night extra special At 11:30 p.m. on the night of May 3, the garters came off. Having been given garters upon entering the gym, the 75 girls present formed a circle facing in and slipped their garters down their legs while their dates were in a circle around them facing the other direction. When the girls had slipped their garters off, they placed them on their dates ' arms in an innova- tive garter ceremony. Before the ceremony, at 10:30 p.m., prom king and queen had been crowned. Kerry Flowers and Ronda Riebe be- came prom royalty and danced the first dance after their coro- nation. Picture taking started at 9 p.m. Students forked out $11 for pictures. Several days be- fore the prom, many students had spent $5 on prom glasses, $3 on keychains, and, for the guys, $52 for tux rental. Stu- dents who had been early enough to buy their tickets be- fore Christmas had spent $12 for a single ticket and $20 for a pair. Those who had procrasti- nated until after Christmas had been forced to pay $17 single and $30 for two tickets. Dancing to music played by the Pilots, students enjoyed the civic center facilities and the decorations put up by a com- mittee headed by Ms. Jo Solor- zano. Before the prom, some students went to restaurants such as Perdido Pass, Yamah- to ' s, and the Wash House. After the prom, they went to the var- ious breakfasts in the area. Get- ting home as late (or early) as 3 or 4 a.m., students spent most of the rest of the day recover- ing. Small Souvenir On the dance floor, Lisa Mikkelsen tags Mark Weir witin Iner garter.

The meaning of this word was as varied as 185 individuals. When asked their favorite part of being a senior, some responses were eye-catching. " 1 like being a senior because all my life I looked up to the ' big bad seniors. ' Now, 1 am one. Seniors have omnipotent power over all freshmen, sophomores, and ju- niors. Live on class of ' 86! " Wil Tuggle " All the memories and excitement I have captured. It will mean freedom after gradu- ation but sadness because of all the friends and memories we have left behind. These are the best of times. " Michele Allen " I like being on ' top ' for a year and doing all the crazy traditions that I have looked forward to for four years. " Tanna Verner " The thing I like most about being a sen- ior is the feeling of independence. Along with independence comes maturity, pa- tience, and effort. Those are a few of the qualities I feel I have and what every senior should have by the time of graduation. Be- ing a senior is just great! " Pam Prim " Being able to look down on everyone else because we are the oldest and smartest people in school. " Robbie Pennington " The thing I like most about being a sen- ior is the fact that nobody messes with you and a lot more people say ' hi ' to you. " Chris Gibson " It means that it is our last year at school, and we want it to be our best. " Shel- ly Madden " The very best part of being a senior is that we get to leave at the end of this year and we don ' t have to come back next year. " Dana Cleverdon " The satisfaction of knowing this is our last year in high school and we ' ve had some great times together as seniors! " Rickey Pi- gott " I like the fact that I can look back on my years as a child and really look at what education has done for me. It has given me the mind to look forward to the future and make plans that can make me and my fam- ily proud. It also gives you a reason to be looked up to as being one of the many to graduate. Being a senior and graduating is one of the proudest feelings a person can have and having that feeling is the pride of ■86.

Seniors 5 1 Narrowing The Field Did you ever notice how the boy who sat across from you in English was always cracking jokes and making people laugh? ... or how that girl In your P.E. class was always first choice when picking teams? ... or how the boy who had a locker next to yours was always dressed exceptionally well? Recognizing one boy and one girl who stood out in areas such as school spirit, talent, or dependability was the purpose be- hind Who ' s Who. Finalists were chosen for 14 different categories. Students were asked to choose the girl and guy who fit each category best. Donna Wade remarked, " I voted for Patrick Wilson for wittiest because even in his greatest times of despair, he would inevita- bly crack a joke. " " I voted for Cheryl Rus- sell for best all around because she is an all around good person! " commented Lisa Res- mondo. Dana Cleverdon added, " 1 voted for Paul Doughty because I ' ve never seen any- one make so many hundreds in all my life. " Wanda Williams declared, " I voted for John Autrey because he ' s a very nice dude and neatly dressed — the most athletic to me. " Michele Hand stated, " I voted for Joby Smith for the most talented boy because he is extremely good at playing the trom- bone. " Tammy Montgomery said, " I voted for Lydia Qaignard because she has got a killer school spirit!! " Larry Eberly re- marked, " I voted for Paul Doughty because he ' s a brilliant surfer. " Susan Nemer ended, " 1 voted for Michele Hand because she is a geek. She ' s the only person who likes Miss Lloyd ' s English class. " No matter what the reason, each per son had a special quality or many special quali- ties worth recognition.

The future depended on approximately four hours. The days drew nearer. Twelve years of education was con- densed into a booklet not half as thick as a magazine. However, to be accepted into col- lege, seniors had to first tackle those " dreaded " entrance exams. The most common of the exams was the American College Testing or most knew it as, the ACT. Preparations for the test took various forms. " I tried to get a good night ' s sleep, " said Ricky Jensen. Others tried to refresh their memories by studying. " Even though there was no way to go over every- thing on the test, I tried to prepare as best as I could, " commented Wil Tuggle. Stomachs churned, palms were sweaty, and fingers cramped as students sat through the four hours it took to complete the ACT. " It was a relief to get it over, but waiting for my score was almost just as bad, " commented Stephanie Brice. When scores came in, it was evident that some seniors were disappointed. " I didn ' t do as well as I wanted to, so I decided to take the ACT over again, and I did a lot better, " said Qina Long. Some students looked at the ACT as the last obstacle standing between them and college. As Christy Mullis said, " I was glad to have the ACT out of the way because I could spend my time thinking about colleges and my futures. " Despite the pressure of taking the ACT or other college exams, students made the necessary preparations. They met the chal- lenge head on and hurdled the last obstacle. Cramming for the last time before taking the ACT, Rickey Pigott gets in last minute studying. Assess- ment booklets were filled with helpful hints and sug- gestions.

Besides their friends at Foley, most trade school students had friends from Fairhope and Robertsdale. " I get to meet people that are so different from my Foley friends, " said Gail Watson. Seniors who went to trade school spent three hours of the morning at Robertsdale and then the rest of the day at Foley. " Fit- ting into two different schools isn ' t as hard as you might think. The only important thing we miss by going to trade school is the pep rallies at break, " commented Jill Bain. A few students went to trade school be- cause they thought it was an easy way out. " Trade school is three easy credits for me, " said welding student Keith Hubbard. How- ever, most of the students enjoyed trade school and planned on using what they learned in later educational plans. " I enjoy trade school because I plan on going into some field of work that deals with electron- ics, " said John McQhee. Because of the three hours spent in one class, the teachers at trade school had more time to spend with each student. This, in turn, brought out the best in the students. " The teachers treat us like adults, and because of it we try to act like adults and do our best, " said Sandy Holman. Trade school classes have hands on experience ev- eryday. Keith Hubbard uses welding tools to cut out letters for a sign. 56 Trade School Seniors Showing support for the trade school. Ford Motor Company donates a truck to the mechanics class.

Trade School Seniors 57 Junk Mail Tons of college pamphlets and letters telling of educational opportunities passed through the United States Post Offices. These letters and pamphlets made their way in droves to the homes of seniors. " The pile of mail in my room was alive because it kept growing, " said Angle Montgomery. Letters from schools that students had nev- er heard of in places they never knew exist- ed made up a large portion of the mail. These piles of junk mail contained prom- ises of instant placement in field of work chosen and large starting salaries. Most of the letters stated that an education at this school couldn ' t be surpassed by an educa- tion anywhere else. Flooding senior ' s desks, " junk " mail and " good " nnail finds its way to students liomes. While even some letters came from unknown schools, some of- fered worthwhile information. Student mail multiplies during the senior year. Pam Prim opens a letter from yet another col- lege interested in having her attend. The pile of mail received by seniors did contain some worthwhile information. Pamphlets from the Armed Forces told of money that could be saved for education after enlistment. To add a more personal touch, the University of South Alabama sent holiday greeting cards. Colleges sent pamphlets listing the courses offered, tu- ition fee, dorm fee, and meal fee — all the information needed to decide on which col- lege to attend. Whether, " good " mail or " junk " mail, the piles continued to grow until the time came for the next senior class to receive their share of information. 58 Phltllp McFtfrin John McCihee Stephanie McOII Um MkkkdMn Dwayne Miller Kim nonk Anuria Montgomery Tammy Montgomery Gary Moore Christy MuHla Doug Munger Eddie Ndion Suian liemer Tammy Nichola Charleen Morrli Timothy ISorrlt QallOdom Marilyn ParT ell Edward Paul Peyton Peek Dtans Petrotta Katie Pertoru Rcnee Peterson Sonny Pet way Zan Pierce Rickey Pigott Tracy Pllts Kenneth Powell F omela PHm Cathy Quails Tommy Rachel Mike Ree April Reavis Uu Reamondo Ronda Rlebe OavM Roberts Eric Rogers Bill Rowell Carol Ruegg Cheryl Russell Bart Sahr Alfredo SaUlvai Caroline Sanchei Ddvki Santa Cruz OeoHSchaff Bryan Schell Mkhelh.

It was the final decision, and once it was made there was no turing back. Sen- iors seen in this state were faced with the assignment of choosing their favorite sen- ior personalities. Stomachs turned and faces changed temperatures as choices for favorites were called out during morning announcements. It was an ego booster to some, but to others it was just simple shock. Five boys and five girls were chosen by their classmates and singled out from all the others as being the most " popular " stu- dents in the senior class. Some were chosen simply for their good looks — others ex- celled in certain categories. Although a few had just recently moved into the area, most were familiar faces around campus. They had been involved in school activities, ath- letics, and social gatherings with other stu- dents for years. In spite of tough competition and close results, the favorites were decided upon and most of the seniors were satisfied. These students proved to be leaders on campus and showed their winning qualities throughout their senior year.

Whether going to college or heading out into the work force, each senior was entering a new beginning in life. Summing up the feelings of most, Cheryl Russell said, " I feel sad about leaving be- hind my high school years, but I have memories that will stay with me forever. " No senior could forget the water fights dur- ing break and lunch, the heated discussions on economics in Mr. Tommy Catlin ' s class, those " interesting " novels that had to be read in English, or the race to finish and hand in term papers on time. New responsibilities had to be faced; for instance, packing up for college while par- ents dreaded the approaching move. " My mother acts as if I was going to the darkest of Africa, never to return, " said Dina Wat- ley. Even though high school was ending, seniors were looking forward to their fu- ture. " I do feel sad about leaving high school, but the thought of college and all the good times I ' ll have there makes the nostalgia of high school easier to bear, " said Wade Stroud. 62 Seniors Sabine Wd«imann Chilsul Welch Hike Wllllsmt Wanda Wllllami Lawrence WlUon SutleWUion Roben Wood SiKiry Wright Old notebooks, books, paper, and just plain junk filled the lockers of many seniors.

He fumbled with his keys, cranked the car, and drove slowly down the alley. He escaped the school with visions of a Big Mac or the • ' Guiding Light " dancing before his eyes . . . Such was the description of a typical stu- dent who decided that skipping was the easiest way to miss his next class. For many, the thought never entered their minds — to others, it was a struggle to for- get. A student was considered skipping when he didn ' t follow the proper procedure for checking out through the office or when he didn ' t show up at school at all. Many ju- niors found skipping to be a convenient so- lution for missing a typing test or getting out of a lab in Biology II. Although it was quite amusing to think of all the students struggling for answers dur- ing the test you were missing, the conse- quences for skipping were not so funny. If caught for your first offense, you would receive a simple warning and possibly have to write sentences: but the next time a slip was made, the penalty was suspension. Sick of Algebra II class? Forget your Eng- lish homework? Want to try something dar- ing? Go ahead and skip just be prepared for the consequences when you ' re caught. Careful not to be noticed, Jennifer Graham and Leah Griggers escape down Rose Avenue Jenni fer keeps a watch out for any teachers or principals who might be near. Doomed to pay the consequences, Terri Dugger works on her punishment for skipping. Terri wrote 250 sentences as a penalty for a first offense. Eleventh Grade 65 After School Income As the 3 p.m. bell rang and some stu- dents headed home to relax in front of the television, other students were putting on uniforms and getting out their gloves to pre- pare for the long night ahead. These stu- dents held afternoon and weekend jobs. Available jobs ranged from grocery store clerks to shrimpers, and students managed to locate these available means to earn needed money. With new stores, restau- rants, and shopping centers moving into town, new job opportunities turned up ev- erywhere. Students chose to work for various rea- sons. Many wanted to earn extra money, pay for school expenses, car insurance, or just to get out of the house. " 1 work to pay for gas and to take pressure off my par- ents, " commented James Lingis. Money earned ranged from $3.35 to $4.15 per hour. Jobs also helped students learn how to better manage their finances and made them more aware of what the dollar was really worth. Although jobs interfered with the social lives of students, the responsibilities that were taught prepared them for the working world ahead.

There will be chaperons and we ' ll be good and I ' ll work for all the money it ' ll cost and I ' ll be out of your hair for a whole week and it ' s boring at home and everybody ' s gonna be there! Please, Mom, please let me go! " All those students who ever tried to con- vince their parents that they should be al- lowed to spend spring break in a condo or beach house at the Gulf were familiar with these pleas. Preparations began months in advance. First came the dreaded pleading with par- ents; then came finding a place to stay. A perfect swimsuit must be shopped for and a good stock of groceries had to be pur- chased. Finally, on April 18 at 3 p.m., the break began. Students piled into cars and trucks with suitcases, new swimsuits and lots of money in their pockets. By day, they swarmed the beaches with jam boxes and suntan lotion, soaking up the rays and en- joying the vacation away from parents and teachers. By night, students flew from their own condos to barge in on their friends, while some raced down the highways to take in all the hot spots such as Shenani- gan ' s and Sunland Park. Students spent the week eating junk food, leaving their clothes lying around, and not making their beds. Some students chose to s tay for only a few nights while others traveled back and forth from their houses to the Gulf. When the week ended, students cleaned up their condos and packed up their belong- ings, but the memories of an unrestrained week on the beach would not be forgotten. Hoping to find the best buy, Carolyn Toier takes time to call condominiums. Students began prep- arations for spring breal in advance, so tfiey would be assured of having a place to spend the week. Visions of a fun-filled week ahead prompt Laura McConnell and Lisa Moore to fill their shopping cart with good things to eat. Students stocked condos with chips, dip, Reeses, and Snickers for afternoon or midnight snacks. f 68 Tenth Grade Dtonne Abrams Jack Ahnims Rlchdfd Adcock Cindy Alston Trina Andreasen Tina Applefiale Vicki Ard Jomte Afmstronq Shannon Avery Fiank Badners Suianne Batly Amy Barber Derrln Basco Wendy Bauer Ericka Bayer Scoll Beaman r e Ann Blakerrrare Tony Bodiford Valerie Bonner Jaime Brice Moose Broi Mercdtlh Buck Andy Butler Deanna Carr)eal Anneite Camley Herbert Casey Lonnie Casey Chn.lln.

The cause grew increas- ingly apparent as 16 year old students took to the roads with their first driver licenses burning in their pockets. For many, getting their licenses was the cure for boring Friday and Saturday nights. After they had passed their tests, students were found pleading to borrow mom ' s or dad ' s car. They ran to the phone to call their friends, saying " Guess what, 1 got the car tonight! " Within the next few hours, they were out cruising the town. While some had to wait until they were older to get " independent " transportation, others were fortunate enough to receive a car on their birthday. Keith Morin com- mented that the one bad thing about having his own car was having to save his money for gas. Soon after the excitement wore off, stu- dents began to resent the fact that they had their licenses. Parents filled up the agenda with afterschool errands. Brad Smith felt that the biggest problem of having a license was having to run little brothers and sisters around. But, besides all the responsibilities that went along with getting their licenses, stu- dents still relished the idea of being older and steadily becoming more independent people. 70 Tenth Grade Melodit Sampey Shawns Sandcti Carolyn SansprM; Lor( San pre« Cor la Sarlego Mile hell Schoff Cratg Schoen John Schumacher Kerfi Sharpe Csfolyn Shepard Pam Shiver Kathy ShuU Tammy Simmons Joe Skelton RIkkl Sledge Brad Smith Michelle Smith Yancle Smith Amie Spates Jeff Speh Mall Sprlngneld Daniel Slalmpel Candy Stokes Tonya Siowe Gina Stump Marie Styton Robert Suell Shana Summers Brent Sute Ginger Sweet Mark Tsmpary Kim Taylor Patricia Taylor Melissa Templet Davy Thompson John TIblier Carolyn Toler Ray Tompkins John Trimble Carrie Underwood Theresa Vick Joe Walden Ashley Waldo Clay Waldo George Wallace Lester Wallace Matie Wallace Meredith Walsh Marilyn Ward Yolanda Ward Ginger Waters Tommy Weeks Jackie White Brian Whitson Jane Wiggins Chad Willis Glen WIrth Gwen Woemer Wade Wolverton Bobby Wood Julie Wood Sheila Wood Barry Wyman Brandie Wyman April Yeager Johnny Young Kerry Youngblood ase of the family vehicle means having to fill up the tank.

Al- though your parents usually were known as the bad guys, they were often supportive and helpful. They enjoyed attending school functions such as football and basketball games and they often helped you with that English or algebra homework that you just couldn ' t seem to figure out. Sometimes you wondered about them: Was the word " no " the only word in their vocabulary? And did they really think that you would benefit from sitting home on a Friday night when everyone else was out? You often thought you could tell them a thing or two, but after a few moments you figured the consequences would then be much tougher. So you just bit your lip and stood there listening to what they had to say. After a while you realized that parents weren ' t that bad. Your mom was always there to listen to your problems and in re- turn to give her advice on the subject. And then your dad was the one that you always turned to when you needed a little extra money or an extended loan. Kelly Brown felt that her parents were very helpful in some situations, while Sherri Henderson commented, " I love my parents but some- times they are a pain and sometimes they are great. " So whether they were punishing you for your own good or telling you that you had done a good job, they did their best to keep you in line and to raise you as they saw fit.

Addicts It was 7 p.m. on Thursday — time for " The Cosby Show " followed by " Family Ties. " At 8 p.m., it was " Cheers " then " Night Court, " and at 9 p.m. the long await- ed " Knots Landing. " It seemed that every student had a routine schedule that worked around television. It went something like this: Got to be home before 8 p.m. to catch the latest laugh on the " Golden Girls, " or gotta finish the chores before 6:30 p.m. to see if anyone will win one of those Cor- vettes on the " Wheel of Fortune. " 74 Ninth Grade Students looked forward to being sick and missing school so they could catch up on their favorite soaps such as " General Hospital, " " Guiding Light, " " Young and the Restless, " " As the World Turns, " and " Days of Our Lives. " Nighttime soaps re- placed the comedies and •coa old family shows with great " garbage " that captivat- ed many. Although some television shows were more entertaining than others, some taught valuable lessons and emphasized true his- torical facts that were being taught in classes. Educational programs were often scheduled to create something students could watch as satisfied parents sat con- tently by.

Rule 2: Must have at least three people to make a hackey circle. Popularity grew to great heights through- out the eighth grade with only a few rules to guide the way. To play Hackey Sack one had to pass a small round bean bag around the circle us- ing various parts of the body. The object of the sport was to make a " hack " — in other words, to keep the sack alrborn within the circle without letting it touch the ground. " It is just fun, and it keeps your mind off of school, " said Kenneth Oulliber, who played Hackey Sack whenever he got the chance. At times the Hackey Sack could really relieve the tensions of being in class. Some people thought of hacking as just a silly game, but Hackey Sack fanatics held a different view. Rule 3: Play hackey sack at break, at lunch, before school, after school, and at any other time you have a few spare min- utes to kill. Challenged by the sport of hacking, Bubba James shows off his talents. Bubba is one of nnany who enjoys spending time hacking. Foot poised for another kick at the Hackey Sack, Jeff Smith keeps control of the minature bean bag. Hacking not only provided hours of enter- tainment for restless students but also improved leg- eye coordination. - Mt 76 Eighth Grade Malhan Alien Pence AI»otHock Trovls Ami son Ter«ttu Andei on Chaioieltc Ard Bobby Autrey Tonya Baos Medea Barnard I aconya Barnett Qarv Beaslev Bill B«nnelt Kaye Beitis Scott Bishop Kelly BiKler Annie Black mon Scoii Blacks Megan Boehm Paula B100K Donna Biown Greg Btown Koien Com TcieaM) Callaway Melissa Chaudron Slocy Cluck Laura Cotey Tim Courtflght Wanda Ciiswell Randy Crockett VIckt Cuellar Jennifer Cummin Tammy Davis Claudette DiKon Joy Dugger Kendra Dunn Barry EIII»on Jody Ewirtg Vickie Ewlr g Shaye Feely Jeremy Flala Carl Gardner Randy Gdger John Gentry Crlsll Gibson Deana CiM Shelley Gill Christine Glenn Troy Goodwin Kevin Green Lawrence Greene Dewey Hadley Jason Hall Barbara Hand Tara Harris Teresa Hayes Tyler Hoycs Karla Healon Jeff Henrlchs Glenda Henton Johnny Higglnbothsm Anna Hilburn Chris Honeycutt Brandy Howard Stephen Howard Tracy Hubbard Ronald Hunter Bubba James Denise Jeter Monica Johnson Karon Johnston Anton Jones Indiana Jones Russell Jones Melissa Keevan Joyce Kendrick Timothy Kent Sonya Kircharr Celestine Knight Chsriesetta Knight LaSharen Knighl Tiers Knight Shane Koehler Eighth Grade 77 James Nims Joseph Norris Michelle Odom Jodi Oullliber Kenneth Oulliber Cheryl Owens Rosetta Page Loretta Paul Tim Paul Ronnie Perry Wyndi Pinckney Lisa Ann Polk Ardina Pollard Helena Porter Kenzetta Porter Dwayne Price Tara Rigsby Johnathan Robbins Ellen Roberson Darrell Russell Michelle Schuize Cathy Schweiger Consuelo Scott Jerome Scott William Scott Ana Shepard Ken Shepeard Ginger Sherman Shaun Shoenight Donna Smith Donnie Smith Jeff Smith Lewis Smith Richard Smith Tony Smith Brandon Spivey Stepping Out Socially " Let ' s Conga! " " Come and dance to the latest hits Friday night after the game. " Pro- motions boosted attendance at dances and left eighth grade students trying to decide what they would wear. Casual dress was the rule for most of the year ' s dances. Students often checked with their friends or teachers to make sure they were properly attired for each dance. One frequent dance-goer, Renee Alsobrook, of- ten stopped by Miss Deborah Lundberg ' s room before a dance to get all the details, including proper attire. Students that went to the dances after football and basketball games just couldn ' t wait until they got to the high school so they could attend more of the dances and the proms. Even though they had a few years to wait, eighth graders dreamed of their senior prom. Each girl tried to imagine herself in a long formal gown and to picture her boyfriend in a tux. " My friends and I like to go to the dances because we love the music and like to dance, " commented Joyce Kendrick. Oth- ers simply enjoyed the opportunity to be with friends and talk over the week ' s events. Whatever the reasons for going to the dances, eighth grade students could be certain of one thing — they were sure to be in perfect style.

Nothing goes right. You ' re always forgetting your pencils or pens and either having to buy one in the office or borrow one from anyone who will lend you one. Often forgetting your homework, you must make up ex- cuses like the ever so popular — " My dog ate it. " — " It was in my folder yesterday, but it seems to have disappeared. " — " My housekeeper threw it away with the rest of the trash. " The excuses never stop. Almost every student left his books at home at one time or another — not to men- tion lunch money, lunch cards, or signed papers. But don ' t despair. Everyone has spells of absentmindedness sometimes. So the next time you don ' t make it to school equipped for the day, just forget it. Forgetting a pencil is common among students. So tfiat she will be prepared for class, Tammy Savell buys a pencil from Mrs. Joann Morris. If one happened to lose his book, he was likely to find it on the lost and found shelf in the office.

Seventh Grade 81 Star Struck " I kissed Tom Selleck, " boasted Ms. Kathleen Gaffney to middle school stu- dents. Portraying a prostitute in " The Washington Affair, " Ms. Gaffney played opposite the rugged " Magnum P.l. " star. Her professional acting debut came in 1973 when she landed the lead in the Off-Broad- way Actor ' s Playhouse production of " Kali Mother. " After starring in plays with differ- ent theater groups, Ms. Gaffney sold a script to the television series St. Elsewhere, establishing herself as a writer. Sponsored by the Performing Arts Ms. Gaffney visited the middle school in the fall. She entertained seventh graders with skits about toad-sucking, cheerleading, and be- ing a cow girl. Correct breathing techniques and proper voice control in front of different size crowds were also subjects of discus- sion. At the conclusion of the program, Ms. Gaffney fielded questions from the audi- ence. To the delight of many star struck girls, one brave student voiced the question dancing in everyone ' s mind. " What was Tom Selleck really like? " Just as every true female expected — she thought he was wonderful.

Was it really going to benefit the students? How were the seventh and eighth grade students going to react? These were just a few questions that lin- gered in the minds of sixth graders. With anticipation of meeting new people and gaining new privileges, the students ea- gerly awaited the first day of school. Stu- dents worried whether they had transporta- tion, whether or not they could make it to class on time, and whether they would get along with the others. When the dreaded first day of school finally arrived, students ' questions were answered. The school was definitely more cramped. Trailers were parked behind the building, providing the extra classroom space need- ed. New lockers were moved in so that the new students would have somewhere to store their books. Moving up with the older students gave sixth graders a feeling of maturity. They liked the idea that they were considered part of the older half of the school. Angle Hall commented, " It is a lot better because we get more freedom. " " It made us feel more mature because we were around peo- ple our age and older, " added Sherman Houston. Besides feeling older, the students were included in such events as middle school prom and the Miss Blue and Gold Contest and Dance. These activities familiarized sixth graders with the events popular among other past-grammar school stu- dents. Although some seventh and eighth grad- ers were jealous of the crowding, sixth grad- ers seemed to enjoy the move. It solved the elementary crowding situation and gave sixth graders a feeling of maturity at the same time. An adjustment that had to be made by sixth grade students was the fact that they now rode the bus to the band room. Band students meets the bus every morning at 11:10 a.m. aniike elementary students, who paid for their lunch during homeroom, middle school students became responsible for keeping up with their money. Added choices such as popsicles and Little Debbie Snack Cakes attract students like Reid Cole. 84 Sixth Grade Demond Adems Jeannte Adams Mock Adams Tony Adam Wendy Andoraor Heothei Baily Rodney Batnett Darrel Bartley Artie Beech JuanUa Bell Craig Bemis Justin Blackwetl Carmen Bodenhamer Yvette Bouian Tiffany Brock Corey Brown Jerry Calhoun Sherrie Calhoun Eric Callaway Randy Capers Lori Carneal Michael Carroll Jennifer Casey Shaunda Chaissc Reid Cole Cathy Collins James Criswell Ron Cruz Stacey Davis Lavonce Dubose Marvin Dupree Freddy Evans Christopher Feely Kim Figge Michele Franklin Jason Gebhart Lewis Germany Joshua Gilley Roman Gray Jennifer Griggers Marsha Guess Barry Guy Angie Hall Jeffrey Hall Keefia Hare Noel Hayes Beverly Henry Terry Henton Chris Hermecz Lee Hevner Lee Anne Hewett Armi Higginbolhan Tammy Hilburn Earnest Holmes Tony Holmes Anthony Home James Houston Sherman Houston Amy Huffman Chad Hughes George Humphreys Reggie Hunter Stephanie Iter Anthony James Devon James Ladarrell James Michael James Wayne James April Johnson Jermaine Keil Mary Knight Tyrone Lamar Tammy Martell Rachel Maxted Selean Maye Tyrone Maye Melissa McAdoo Donnie McDuffie Brian McMahan Tcrrence Mickles Telly Milton Conswayta Minor Leigh Montgomery Julie Moorer Ann Morales Terri Morgan Sharon Moye Sixth Grade 85 Mtcheiie Mabors Jeri Lynn Nazary Deborah MeJson Edgar Netties Richie Newburn Chrissy Nicholson Pam Nygaard George Odom Roderick Odom Steven Odom Chris Page Rickey Paul Ashley Peavy Michael Peek Tommy Perdue Ron Phillips Deborah Pickens Tracy Pickens Shunda Reed Stephanie Reed Tameka Richardson Marl ion Rigsby Yashika Rigsby Cynthia Roberts Quincy Roper Grady Roush Elizabeth Rowelf Todd Russell PTA ' Bots ' Tin cans, full spray paint bottle s, wire, boxes, and Coke bottles lay untouched un- til suddenly the inventor got a wonderful idea. The project of making a robot gave many sixth grade students a chance to get out of chores and to be with friends. Some select- ed friends to help them, while others worked alone. Lori Carneal commented that she thought groups were fun because they gave her a chance to visit with her friends. But Reid Cole thought that groups were not helpful because he ended up doing most of the work. He replied, " I had to get new batteries, make the head, and even bring it to school. " Although the work took time, the produc- tion of the robots was soon completed. Stu- dents ' robots ranged in composition from country singers to cats and dogs. One robot even contained a remote control pro- grammed for girl chasing. On April 8, at a Parent Teacher Associ- ation (PTA) meeting, the students demon- strated how their robots worked. This was the night on which students were awarded honors for their creations. Matt Williams commented, " I thought the project was fun. It gave us a chance to see what computers in the future may real- ly look like.

The air in the fifth grade was filled with excitement. The rea- son for all the commotion was simple — fifth graders were going to the Saenger The- ater in Mobile to see live, on stage, the bear that everyone loved as kids — Winnie the Pooh. As expected there were some students who thought they were a little old for Win- nie the Pooh. Christine Rivers said, " I liked it a lot, but I think I am a little too old for the play. " Robyn Johnson was asked why she went to the play and replied, ' So I didn ' t have to work. " After paying $1.50 to get into the show, fifth graders forked out more money for lunch at McDonalds. Once finished with lunch, the students boarded buses to return to school. With them went the memory of a childhood friend — a bear named Winnie the Pooh. After the play, eating at McDonalds was next on the agenda. Angela Gates and Janna Edmundson en- joy chicken McNuggets before boarding buses for their ride back to school. Late-comers quietly look for a seat during the first scene at Winnie the Pooh. Because the auditorium filled early, seats were difficult to locate. Fifth Grade 89 Amateur Conductors Conducting an orchestra was a job for an adult. Right? Well, fifth graders dispelled this conception on January 29, when they went to see the Alabama Symphony Or- chestra at the civic center. Mell Koniar, Mandy McBride, Eddie Thomas, Freddie Scott, and Lizanne Walters all got a chance to conduct the orchestra. Mandy McBride said, " 1 wasn ' t embarrassed at all. 1 enjoyed doing it a lot. " The orchestra played songs from coun- tries around the world such as France, Spain, and England. Crowd participation further enhanced the program. When the conductor asked for volunteers to answer musical questions, the crowd was sprinkled with people volunteering answers. Fifth graders snapped their fingers to the beat, sitting on the edge of their seats waiting for the climatic ending of a song. Because the show lasted an hour, students felt it was a perfect excuse to get out of class. Jason Kryder said, " It kind of burned me up that we weren ' t let out for Mardi Qras, so the orchestra made up for it. " Making their debut on stage, Mell Koniar and Mandy McBride listen to advice given by thie vet- eran conductor. Students overcame their jitters and experienced for the first time the feeling of being a conductor.

The program, called " News From Foley Elementary, " aired ev- ery Saturday morning at 8:05 a.m. With Thanksgiving just around the cor- ner, anywhere from three to six students shared with their audience what they were thankful for the most. On other shows, the students would read the cafeteria menu for the next two weeks. Mrs. Martha Farmer commented, " The children enjoyed being on the radio, and it supplied a little informa- tion to the community. " Eager to hear their voices on the radio, the anchors of the show tuned in to WHEP for each show. Leigh Smith said, " I was nervous and shaky, then when I knew ev- erybody would be listening to it on the ra- dio, 1 got scared. " Without showing signs of being nervous, Austin Spivey reads the menu for a radio taping. The elementary broadcast aired on Saturday morning at 8:05 a.m. While concentrating on the taping, Jamel Jacl son recites what he is most thanl ful for.

On January 21, ail questions fourth graders once had con- cerning the O.S. ' s climate were answered when WALA weatherman Bill Evans visited their school. Mr. Evans explained the weather, the symbols for it, and how he predicted it. Mrs. Vicki Montgomery called Mr. Evans and planned this special activity because fourth graders were studying the weather in their science classes. In preparation for this unit, Mrs. Kathleen Graham ' s science class made a map of the U.S. and placed symbols for the weather on it. Around this map the students put up their own individual weath- er pictures. " He was funny because he called every- body knucklehead, " expressed Danny Moye who really enjoyed hearing about the weather from a professional weatherman. Mr. Evans ' visit to the school not only supplied students with previously un- known information, but it also gave them something to brag about. After all, it wasn ' t everyday that one got to see a radio and television personality. With listening ears, fourth graders were eager to hear what Mr. Bill Evans had to say. Since Mr. Evans reports the weather nightly on the News 10 Early Edition and INightcast, students were anxious to have him visit their room. 94 Fourth Grade David Walthsll Chrlslopher Wnlklns Virginia Watson Dorian Weeks Holly Whatley Ryan Wheeler Murlce White Tamelka Williams Dwan Wilson Jerry Wood Larry Zellers Interested in the weather forecast.

So who did you tell? Third graders told their sidekicks. Sidekicks could be found huddled into groups talking to each other or just passing notes in class. They were also there to listen Sidekicks to problems and give helpful advice. De- pendable and supportive, sidekicks offered the much-needed counsel to help solve problems and provide a listening ear in con- versations. Whether they were there to help solve problems or just listen to great news, side- kicks sharpened their problem-solving and listening skills in the third grade. For Matt and Dax Goforth their frontyard becomes an ideal soccer field after school. Not just twins but sidekicks also, they enjoy each others company as well as the benefits of friendship. Not only did sidekicks play with each other, but they also helped each other out. Sonya Dukes gets homework assignments from Mrs. Mary Rush Schrieber for Charity LeDrew while she is home sick. Third Grade 97 Man ' s Best Friend Parakeets, dogs, kittens, and ham- sters — all species had one thing in com- mon; they were pets among third grade students. Ranging in size from seven inches to fifty-four inches, pets required differing levels of responsibility. Some pets, like small parakeets, required less care than larger pets, like German She- perds. Large or small pets required food Proving to be perfect companions, pets can be played witti, trained, or just lield. Playing witti her Cocker Spaniel puppy Laura, Elizabeth Weaver makes up for the time she was away from her while at school. and shelter, and students usually found themselves taking care of these require- ments. They kept their pets in aquariums, boxes, wood houses, baskets, cages, ga- rages, and in their backyards. Some lucky ones even became house pets — enjoying all the comforts of home. Some pets had unusual behavior. Mi- chael Soesbe commented, " My Springer Spaniel chases birds and his shadow and jumps over bushes. He runs away from ev- eryone and loves to be playful. " Some students did not mind the responsi- bility of owning pets and even had five or six. But others had enough trouble just keeping up with one. Whether they owned many pets or just one, pets were popular among third graders. 98 Third Grade Pets can be fun, but responsibility is also involved.

Second graders found collecting to be an interesting hobby. Stu- dents collected anything from rocks to shells to stamps to cans. They worked weekdays and weekends gathering masses of different items to add to their treasures. Some students asked family and friends to keep a watchful eye out for more things to go into their collec- tions. Brian Graham commented, " 1 go around picking things up. " Jimmy Salinas added, " 1 get rocks in my front yard and in the swamp. " Once they had gathered as many things as their boxes, cans and shelves could hold, what did they do? Kenny Thomas sold some of his cans and bought clothes with the money he made. Randy Pugh collected pencils and kept them in a pencil box. Mak- ing earrings with shells she collected kept Samantha Davison busy. Sandra Runs- After went with her sister to the store to sell her cans. Collections were something each student took pride in and properly cared for. They each had their own interests and whether their collection had any money value or not, it had a priceless personal value.

As they brought in brownies and cupcakes to be sold, second graders imagined the feeling of the cold breeze of an air-conditioner blow- ing away the rays of the hot sun. Each class was allowed to have an air- conditioner placed in it ' s room if the stu- dents raised the money needed. Then the school would pay the electricity bill. So sec- ond grade teachers got together to think up ideas to raise the money. Some rooms popped popcorn during classes and sold it at the canteen. Mothers sent in brownies, cupcakes and other snacks to be sold. Students brought quar- ters, nickels, and dimes to buy the snacks with, and a money doll was raffled off on February 7, bringing in close to $100. April Yost said, " 1 buy popcorn because 1 want second grade to have air-conditioning. " In order to obtain an air-conditioner, each room had to raise $800. The classes also took orders for Valley Brooks products, tempting friends and neighbors with a vari- ety of candy bars and other tasty treats. Jeff Jemison commented, " 1 sold some peppermint candies and gold nuggets and even some of those coconut kinds. " Joined together by a common cause, each of the six second grade rooms raised the money needed and installed air-condi- tioning. Their efforts were rewarded with the coolness of the new window unit blow- ing away the heat. Admiring her prize, Brenda Crosby looks over the money doll raffled off by second grade classes. The doll was a plastic girl figure clothed with folded up one dollar bills. 102 Second Grade mfl Gabc; Suddarth Sam Suell Adam Tsyk r Dinky Terrill K«iny Thomas Sconte Thomas Jeremy TInney Tare Turner Tammy UrKlerwood Joseph Vinson Qlorla Wotker Larry Water Jolcne Weeks Nicholas Weidlngef Meal Welch Philip Wenzel Jeremy West Jeremy White Anlwan Williams Christopher Williams Demain Williams Broderick Wilson Roderick Wilson Draper Woodyard Amelia Wright With supplies donated by parents and teachers.

First graders were no longer content to brown bag it. Simple black lunchboxes would not do. Students flocked to the near- est stores to purchase the newest crazes in lunchbox fashion. Jeana Kryder comment- ed, " I like all the lunchboxes, but this year I wanted a Hugga Bunch. " The purpose for carrying a lunchbox. however, was almost as important as the style of lunchbox chosen. Despite the hot meals offered in the school cafeteria, some students simply preferred home meals. Shelly Alexander brought a lunch fixed by her mother because " she makes better things. " No matter what styles in lunchboxes first graders decided upon or what reasons they had for carrying them, one thing was cer- tain: the days of the basic brown bag were virtually extinct.

Dressed up and ready for fame, first graders performed at the school cafeteria in front of parents at the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) meeting preced- ing Valentine ' s Day. When the business segment of the meet- ing had been concluded, first graders marched to the front of the cafeteria. Some Bringing the meaning of Valentine ' s day to the audi- ence, first graders accompany their song with- hand motions.

" students, like Lisa Kleinschmidt, " felt weird " as they stood in front of the audi- ence awaiting their cue. When the signal was finally given by Mrs. Cheryl Smith, the students broke into song. First on the agen- da was a song about ducks. Then, some read Valentine poems. Finally, the students sang a song about speckled frogs. At the end of the performance, the audi- ence rewarded their hours of practice with ringing applause. According to Shelly Alex- ander, " It was embarrassing.

If you don ' t, simply go up to any kindergarten student and he will most likely tell you its name, what it turns into, and several other interesting facts unknown to most people. Other than Transformers, kindergarten students knew a good bit about several oth- er toys such as He-Man and the Masters of the (Jniverse. Many of the students had favorite car- toons that occupied their afternoons and Saturdays. Transformers, Gobots, G.l. Joe, Masters of the Universe, and She-Ra were all put into cartoon form. Watcher Chad Rohe said, " 1 like to watch it because it looks like Cobra is going to beat Q.l. Joe, but in the end Q.l. Joe wins. " Past hits such as Star Wars, Match Box Cars, and Barbie and Ken had become al- most obsolete. Transformers and Gobots had made their debut. Despite the most re- cent craze in modern toys, most lost their popularity as fast as they gained it because history inevitably repeated itself. Some oth- er toy came in and took over the toy stores and the whole cycle started all over again. Pull the cord and it flies off.

" The children wanted to do a play, and I said, " Sure, " commented Mrs. Durgin, Easter was celebrated throughout the school, but no class could outdo the kindergarten. On March 27 and 28 all of the kindergar- ten classes celebrated Easter with an egg hunt and party. The children brought in eggs that were to be hidden and then found. The children enthusiastically hunted eggs in the southwest corner of the elementary field. " I wanted to go so I could eat all the eggs, " said Michael Joiner. After all the eggs had been found, they were returned to their original owners. Anxious little bodies squirmed during nap time as they thought of the party that awaited them. At 2 p.m., 24 five and six- year olds from each class sat in circles on the field sharing cup cakes, candy, potato chips, and juices. Each student devoured their sweets while learning a little bit more about Easter. Showing off the masks they made, kindergarten stu- dents enhance the audience ' s imagination. " I liked wearing the masks best, " said Darryl Knight after the show. After an egg hunt, kindergarten students enjoy sev- eral kinds of goodies.

To the astonishment of stu- dents, their teachers did have lives other than the ones students saw around cam- pus. Teachers were just ordinary everyday people — like parents of students — and their interest varied just as their students ' did. Their involvement in life didn ' t stop when they left campus but rather extended into all aspects of the community. Away from school, they were mothers, daddies, church workers, and even moon- lighters just to mention a few. Mother and father duties occupied a great deal of time outside of school. Al- though they spent 35 hours a week 175 days a year away from their homes, teach- ers still managed to have plenty of time set aside for their families. Whether it was a trip to the grocery store or a night spent at the movies, moms and dads still found ways to spend time with their children. For those teachers who were athletically inclined, they became involved with church Softball leagues and community summer leagues. Some were umpires and referees, or even members at the Foley Raquetball Club. Athletic abilities didn ' t just belong to the coaches. Three afternoons a week, teachers from all three schools would meet Settings may change, but a teacher finds it hard to get away from Instructing young people. On Sun- day mornings, math teacher Mrs. Pam Hand shares Bible truths with her youth class at the United Method- ist Church. Exercise releases anxiety that builds throughout the day in the classroom. Teachers meet three days a week after school at the spa for aerobics classes. Moonlighting adds a little extra cash to a teacher ' s strained budget. The familiar face of social stud- ies teacher, Mr. James Shoots, greets students as they drop by Hardee ' s for those after school snacks. at the spa for an aerobic workout. Other teachers were involved in such sporting ac- tivities as running, biking, or even weighlift- ing. However, just as some students, there were even those who worked after school. For them, it seemed as if their salary wasn ' t enough to satisfy their wants. When such cases occurred, they became involved in the " other " working world. Teachers proved that they weren ' t just those people who stood behind podiums, gave lectures, and graded papers, but also persons who were active in outside pur- suits. 112 Faculty Staff , r-, fcM» ,;. ::;3 n;v . • - jI - Perched in the grocery basket.

Faculty Staff 113 Discussion Time A three-day weekend was always appre- ciated by all — especially when the tem- peratures dipped to the lowest point of the year. February 27, however, was a free day for students only. A parent-teacher confer- ence day had been set up, which meant that teachers were available to talk to parents about their children ' s progress from 2 p.m. until 8 p.m. The parents could find out how their children were doing in school and ask questions concerning improvement of their grades. The late hours were set for the conve- nience of parents, but many still did not take advantage of the opportunity. Only 40 of the 1,063 high school students ' parents showed up. Although the elementary and middle school ratios were greater, many teachers were discouraged by the number of parents that turned out. The deficit in attendance, however, provided teachers with a chance to catch up on neglected classroom work such as cleaning, straight- ening shelves, grading papers, and rear- ranging furniture. In spite of the late hours, low tempera- tures, and low attendance, there were some teachers who felt that the conference was a good idea. " 1 think this was a wonderful idea. We should do this every six weeks, " said middle school teacher Eleanor Daniels. Casually conversing, health teacher Mrs. Launa An- derson talks to Mr. and Mrs. Richard Parker about their son Peter ' s progress. Teachers made it a point for parents to feel free to hold conferences at anytime. Parents became better informed about their children when the Baldwin County Board of Education sponsored Parent-Teacher Conference Day.

" Not only did Burger King grab attention by asking tiiis question, but Mr. Frank Wenzel did also as he drummed up support for the varsity bas- ketball teams on morning announcements. Administrators and faculty members made an effort to make school not only educa- tional but exciting as well. Parties, trips to the library, field trips, and Dairy Queen day were a few events that fell under the category of faculty members making school fun. Each one found special ways to boost education as well as school spirit. Dignity was often sacrificed to bring out school spirit at the pep rallies. Mr. John Lee, Mr. George Boehm, Coach Eddie Wil- lis, Mr. Al Borchardt and Coach Tommy Catlin posed as members of the Northview homecoming court at the pep rally preced- ing the homecoming game. A burst of laughter erupted as the court took the floor. Other faculty members showed a little skin in an unrestrained effort to make money. One of these daring teachers, Ms. Faye Ra- chel, took part in the " Sexy Legs " contest to raise money for Miss Blue and Gold. Mr. Angus Carver took his agriculture class to the Pizza Hut because of the remod- eling job they did on an old car.

The sec- retaries, as well as the cafeteria workers, canteen workers, and janitors were crucial to the smooth running of school life. Think for a minute. How could students have gotten along without the canteen workers? There would have been no snacks at break. How about the cafeteria workers? This would mean no hot-cooked meals. Let ' s not forget the janitors. If it weren ' t for them the school would have looked like a city dump. These people made an impact on how the school performed and looked. Though the workers weren ' t always thanked per- sonally, some students felt that they had made a difference. Mike Thomas said, " I think that they helped everyone. " " People tend to ignore them, but 1 know that they did their job as well as anyone could have expected, " said Tommie McGaster. Whether or not students thanked the school workers verbally, it was evident that these people were intricate parts of school life.

While freshmen struggled with the new course require- ments, others became in- volved In classes that often took them beyond the normal class routine. Students par- ticipated in the Model Gnited Nations (UN) to better famil- iarize themselves with the af- fairs of foreign nations. For approximately 15 weeks, 125 sophomores looked at reading from a dif- ferent angle when they par- ticipated in Uninterrupted Sustained Silent Reading (OSSR) each Friday. The stu- dents were allowed to bring any reading material to class they desired with the excep- tion of assigned material or textbooks and read for an en- tire hour without interrup- tions. The world of communica- tions was opened to fourth grade students when they produced and aired a radio program for local radio sta- tion WHEP 1310. Whether learning speed math with flash cards, learn- ing a foreign language, or pre- paring for a final high school exam, kindergarteners through seniors were continu- ously improving their aca- demic standards. During a year of excelling academical- ly, students were doing more — doing it better. For 30 fifth grade students, sixth period became more than the usual academic class. Aligning students in formation, Richard Nolte prepares Jr. AFJROTC cadets for drill practice. Extra Extra New rules hit extra activities To " C " or not to " C " ? Not quite Shakespeare, but it was a question be- ing asi ed around cam- pus. Because some stu- dents needed more incentive to keep their grades up than just paren- tal discipline the Board of Education decided to tackle the problem. During the regular meeting on August 21, the Board adopted a con- troversial county-wide policy. It required all stu- dents to maintain a " C " average on a semester ba- sis to be eligible to partici- | pate in extracurricular ac- tivites. According to the statement issued, extra- curricular activities were defined as any school sponsored group that met outside of the confines of the regular scheduled aca- demic program or struc- tured school day. The most talked about areas were athletics and band. Students ' comments varied. One student re- marked, " It keeps ath- letes thinking about their grades instead of just their sports. " Jon Noland, a basketball player, said, " They should have had it a long time ago. 1 think the purpose of coming to school is to learn; athlet- ics come second. If both can not be kept up to stan- dard, athletics should be the one to go. " Band director Mr. Don Snowden saw it both ways. " I ' m for it and against it. It ' s important kids keep their grades up, but it doesn ' t punish those who aren ' t in any- thing extra. " On the other hand, it was harder for some stu- dents to make good grades. Sonny Petway felt, " Extracurricular ac- tivities make students well-rounded and teach them more than school books do. " Not only did the " C " ruling affect what kinds of activities students partici- pated in, but the ad- vanced diploma did as well. This relatively new format put a greater em- phasis on science, math, and history. These courses were on an hon- ors level and required much more work. The ad- vanced diploma allowed only four electives during a student ' s high school career. Courses such as typing, ROTC, chorus, art, and journalism were difficult to fit in. To solve this problem and help stu- dents have time to take courses that would make them more well-rounded, an increase in the number of periods was consid- ered. Colonel Walter Pe- trie was one instructor who recommended there be seven classes rather than six and more empha- sis placed on fundamental classes like English and math. Un fortunately, no mat- ter how students were af- fected by these new poli- cies, they seemed to be stuck with meeting them head-on and making the best of them. Grades must be kept up to par in order to participate in ex- tracurricular activities. Coach Jimmy Nazary ctiecks William Scott ' s and Wayne Griggers ' re- port cards to make sure they are maintaining a " C " average. 122 Academics Tutoring is one strategy that students use to try to keep up their grades.

It seemed like a long time, but it was often not long enough to pull low scores up to a sat- isfying grade. When one realized the end was near, it was often too late to bump that border-line grade up. Some students ad- mitted to fault and real- ized that perhaps they shouldn ' t have slacked up on their homework or failed to study for a big test or cut class that day. Others cried and pouted and practically danced on their heads, hoping that the teacher would have mercy and give them an- other point. But could a teacher just give a student a point? " I ' ve found that teachers just don ' t give you things; you need to earn them, " said Shelly Zeigler. Many times teachers would as- sign extra work or out of class projects to students who couldn ' t quite make the cut-off. One aim of school was to teach responsibility. A responsible person got their work done and in on time. The result of not up- holding this duty was un- satisfactory grades. The scare from one six weeks was usually all that was needed to give the incen- tive to do well and make it over the border-line. Students become interior decorators if that ' s what it tal es for a good grade. Bulletin boards are decorated for extra points in Mr. James Shoots ' history class. Students sometimes even go as far as bribery in hopes their teachers will remember them kindly at grading time. Lincoln Mund attempts this artful trick on Mr. Melvin Pettibone when he shares shrimp caught on his fa- ther ' s boat. 124 Academics Even students who have stage fright would rather stand up in front of the class for a few points instead of in front of their par- ents with a bad grade. Tracy Drew made this choice by pre- senting an extra credit report in front of her biology class. For bonus points, Shake- speare comes to the rescue. Rob- ert Pennington recites a Shake- spearean sonnet from memory in order to gain ten extra points on his test. Slimy, gooey, and dirty de- scribed the specimens that stu- dents from Mr. Gary Tucker ' s bi- ology class brought in for a bonus of up to five points each. Mr. Tucker inspects the tenta- cles of a squid which Kelly McClusky brought for the collec- tion. Teachers sometimes assign students projects to find visual aids about the subjects they are studying in class. Third grade student. David Stevens, illus- trates a poster on the Statue of Liberty to the class. Academics 125 students execute their knowl- edge of computers as they are tested on material learned from the " Understanding Comput- ers " textbook. Social studies classes were required to learn about computers. 126 Academics Grading tests, Missy Paustian, Teresa Dean, and elementary teacher Mrs. Deborah Mixon learn about each student ' s read- ing skills in detail. Computers were used to test elementary students. Computers presented a fun way for students to enjoy aca- demic subjects. Middle school students work on a social stud- ies simulation as they learn. Safety software took extra time and work, Greg Sharpless works during his lunch period to perfect the program. Universal Tool Computers reach into all areas of school What one item could be used in all aspects of aca- demics? Better yet, what one item could be skillful- ly used by anyone wheth- er they were in kindergar- ten or twelfth grade? Computers! As lab in- structor Mrs. Pat Ander- sen referred to them, " Computers ar e tools for yesterday, today, and a couple of days from now. " There were school and community projects per- formed by various stu- dents in the computer courses. One of these be- came well known not only among the school but also among the community and even the state. Safety Software, a computer ver- sion of the Alabama Driv- er ' s Handbook, was dis- tributed to schools throughout the state. In- volving students in the community, the project provided the Department of Public Safety with an efficient method of dis- tributing and updating in- formation. Elementary teachers used computerized pro- grams to test their stu- dents in the area of read- ing. The students were then sent individual re- sults by the computer lab technicians. The results of the tests indicated to the teacher in detail exact- ly what knowledge the student was lacking. They also gave page num- bers for the benefit of stu- dents who needed to go back and review informa- tion. Some high school and elementary students took vocabulary review tests once every six weeks on computers. Mid- dle school students were taught out of a textbook, " Understanding Comput- ers. " At the end of the course, they were quizzed on the information. The high school office made use of computers when lunch tickets, schedules, listings of stu- dents and teachers con- taining gereral informa- tion, and report cards were printed. Attendance was stored on the com- puters, and an accounting system was processed for the upcoming years. Students who took the computer course re- ceived a packet of work at the beginning of the year. These packets decided which students would go to competition. Computer students worked through their packets at their own pace. " We have to put all of our work and time into them to get something worthwhile. Every project got harder and harder, " commented Greg Sharp- less. Academically, comput- ers were used throughout the school. Students con- stantly made new pro- grams to further advance the computer field. As George Jones comment- ed, " Computers hold the key to the future. " Academics 127 History is a favorite subject among eighth graders. Students show their interest by bringing in antique artifacts in order to com- plete a given assignment. No matter how much a class is favored among others, they all require six weeks tests. Marylon Hand works to finish her biology test. 128 Academics Favorite Class? The question is asked time and again as students decide their favorite class Some were humiliated or disgusted when asked the question. Others stood right up and gave their full opinion when asked what was their fa- vorite class. The famous reaction, or the most famous reply, to this question was, as Kerri Sharpe commented, " Favorite class?! I don ' t have a favorite class. My favorite part of the day is lunch. " However, more studious students such as Dana Montgomery couldn ' t really decide on her favorite class. She commented, " Geometry or biology. I enjoy the challenge of geometry. , but I plan on a profession related to biology. " Even though students had different first reac- tions to the question, they all had various reasons for liking a particular class. Teachers had a great in- fluence in the choosing. Lynne Oulliber stated, " Mr. Snowden has a good sense of humor and he makes band fun. " Mr. James Shoots and his so- cial studies class won out at the middle school. Tyler Hayes remarked, " I enjoy the study of our American heritage and the teacher is great. " Wyndi Pickney comment- ed on how her interest in her favorite class affected her grade. " It helps I guess because the inter- est in the subject and the teacher makes me want to work hard and have good grades. " The way teachers made their assignments interesting and unique also played a major role in the choosing. Tenth grade English teacher Mrs. Bar- bara Langston added a lit- tle uniqueness to her let- ter writing classes. Students had to choose any of the 50 states and write other students from those states. Elementary teachers challenged stu- dents to learn their divi- sion at home. Fifth grader Robyn Johnson made flash cards and quizzed herself in order to be ready for any division test. The reward was be- ing placed in the top math class of the fifth grade. The very fact that teach- ers were admired and re- spected by students made a terrific impact on their grades. Fred Leiterman commented, " My favorite class is Biology II because I enjoy the teacher and I make better grades in there. " Also, the fact that a certain subject was their favorite motivated them to strive for better grades. " My favorite class is year- book, " commented Jenni- fer Lange. " If it wasn ' t for yearbook, I wouldn ' t come to school. " Howev- er, there were some favor- ite classes that were diffi- cult subjects for students to pass with flying colors. Just the challenge en- ticed them to be competi- tive with their grades. So in the end, the con- troversial question was overcome. Students an- swered this question by making their favorite grade under their favorite teacher in their favorite class. 130 Organizations Division Organizations ' O. riday afternoons be as students flooded the t.

As hundreds of students flooded the gym during group sponsored activities, it was evident that school participa- tion was on the incline. While some organizations were well-established in the school and community, there were others — others who sud- denly gained attention for their service and unique indi- viduality. As the computer club re- leased their own line of soft- ware throughout the state, members of the citizenship club served their community by sending cards and visiting the nursing home. And as the vocational organizations ex- celled in competitions both at the district and state levels, the American Field Service (AFS) celebrated its 25th an- niversary and sponsored three foreign exchange stu- dents. The undercurrent of par- ticipation added spice to the honoraries and organizations. Members combined activities and service to create a special uniqueness within the clubs — it was a year of doing it better. It was the third assembly sponsored by the year- book staff; and during the course of the day. they presented a skit and a slide show for the three schools.

The school was com- prised of six clubs that students could participate in, two of which were the Vocational In- dustrial Clubs of America (VICA) and Future Farmers of America (FFA). VICA, which consisted of die- sel mechanics, air-conditioning, refrigeration, electronics, draft- ing, welding, and trowel trade made up a little over one third of the school. The diesel mechanics course taught students the basic skills they needed to maintain me- chanical devices. General Mo- tors donated a truck for stu- dents to use in class as a model. After learning basics, students practiced on teachers ' and stu- dents ' cars, charging only for parts. Masonry, brick laying, and concrete pouring were taught in the trowel trade de- partment. A major project that all of VICA participated in was an addition to Robertsdale High School in which each class ap- plied its respective skill. This in- cluded the trowel trade class, which laid the foundation and bricked the walls. Televisions, stereos, and ra- dios were in better tune after the electronics class went to work. Before any work could be done there were hundreds of symbols such as " t, " which means voltage, to be learned in order to read a schematic or a map of the circuit in question. Only after the principles were taught could a student compre- hend the massive network of tiny soldered lines of an elec- tronic board. Again, as in other classes, first year drafting students learned the basics of proper drafting. Second year students worked their way from me- chanical drawings to actual ar- chitectural plans. FFA helped first year stu- dents advance their skills in plant cultivating and helped second year students in lands- caping, sales and marketing. The students were responsible for the landscaping and upkeep of school grounds in addition to their everyday work. Each class had its own fund- raisers to send active qualified members to spring contest. An example was a sales campaign of fruit and plants by the FFA class in order to have funds enough to send representatives to participate in contest divi- sions such as horticulture, pub- lic speaking, and livestock con- test. Contests gave students an opportunity to demonstrate the skills they had learned and per- fected and the chance to be commended for them. FFA — Front: Karen Porter.

Lee Ann Leiterman finishes up on some unfinished calculations. 134 BOE DEC A Students prepare to answer the Public ' s demands Dealing with tiie public came naturally for some, but others had to cultivate this skill. Dis- tributive Education Clubs of America (DECA) and Business Office Education (BOE) classes both dealt with this and other aspects of meeting the public. BOE trained students in com- plete office procedures. During the first year, as in other voca- tional classes, students learned and perfected skills. " Senior classes are harder than the first year, " commented Rosalind Shoots when questioned about advanced senior classes and job placement. In addition to class- room work, seniors worked in local offices to become more ac- quainted with an office atmo- sphere. A part-time job took the place of classes on Monday, Wednes- day, and Friday for senior DECA students. Juniors spent the day in different classes such as human relations, resume writing, and selling goods to customers. To gain experience as well as extra funds, DECA was in charge of running the vocation- al center ' s canteen and campus Coke machines. They also col- lected toys at Christmas for the welfare department. To in- crease their funds, BOE sold Christmas tree ornaments. A portion of these funds were spent on sending participants in contest to district and state competition. Others were used when all of the vocational clubs chipped in to buy a billboard ad- vertisement in the Robertsdale area. Both DECA and BOE taught the fundamentals of business, but more importantly, it devel- oped the interests of the stu- dents. Tammy Leiterman com- mented, " Office work is where my interests lie. BOE helps me. " As if they were actually on a job, DECA students clock the time they have spent working in the canteen and filling the Coke machines.

Second year students from Home Econom- ic Related Occupations (HERO) and Health Occupa- tion Education (HOE) were placed in office or career atmo- sphere situations after they had completed a first year course. The course, which con- sisted of important theories and ac tivities, prepared stu- dents for a future occupation as well as for life. " Classes help students to be better par- ents as well as day care work- ers, " said Mrs. Debbie Ra- mage, instructor of the child care class. Pre-schoolers visited child care classes every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Seniors worked in local day cares and kindergartens. Both the visits by pre-schoolers and working with day cares and kindergartens gave the stu- dents a chance to share what they had learned in the fields of arts and crafts, storybook tell- ing, and flannelboard stories with the children. Custom sewing and house- hold services were taught in the HERO classes. Altering clothes and making drapes gave experience to students in the techniques they mastered while learning to be power ma- chine operators for the apparel industry. HOE students spent their Ju- nior year in a cla ss equivalent to Biology II. The health care class trained students in basic patient care such as finding vi- tal signs and other first aid as- pects. " It gives you a basic knowledge, " said Thereasa Rosa. Second year students were placed with local doctors and dentists to enhance their on the job training. Each student, whether in HOE or HERO, received impor- tant training that would prove to be a helpful experience for their chosen career or future education. " My interests lie in medical fields, so HOE is great for me; besides, I like it a lot, " said Kelly Dillon. On the job training not only served as a good means of education, but it also provided a source of self satisfaction.

Although Colonel Walter Petrie said, " ROTC is just like any other class, " the majority of the cadets of the AL- 791 AFJROTC Squadron found themselves caught up in the ex- tra activities and community service of ROTC. Sixty percent of the ROTC schedule was strictly academ- ics consisting of six fields of study: aerospace environment, principles of aircraft flight and navigation, the heritage of flight, rocketry and space craft, aerospace careers, and defense of the United States. Cadets were required to enter several essay contests. Freedom Foun- dation was one in which the AL- 791 Squadron took top places. Vern Cresap captured first place and Mark Stratton won second place. Mike Stockwell snatched third place and also placed a local second in the Voice of Democracy. In addition Mike met the requirements for an ROTC scholarship. ROTC taught self-discipline while of- fering a vigorous academic regi- men. " It teaches you good hab- its, " commented Willie Corrington. 30.6% of the 108 students enrolled in ROTC ex- celled to high school honor roll level. Six of these were mem- bers of National Honor Society. Twenty-nine cadets formed an AFJROTC honor society which required an " A " in ROTC and a 3.0 grade point average overall. The other forty percent of the ROTC schedule was entitled " leadership. " This consisted of several fields. Several days a week were devoted to practic- ing drilling skills. " Marching in unison may sound simple, but it ' s not once you try it, " com- mented Deena Buck. Cadets learned how to handle the flag with respect. As cadets gained rank, working their way from airman to sergeant and on to of- ficer, they learned and prac- ticed certain responsibilities of management and communica- tions. Outstanding cadets re- ceived superb leadership train- ing through the Junior ROTC program. Basic skills in drilling team and color guard tech- niques were taught to fifth grad- ers to introduce them to JROTC and help them make a decision about participation. Special practice enables the color guard to march in polished form in the annual homecoming parade. Cadets auditioned for a spot in the color guard.

ROTC made efforts to help oth- er people by bi-weekly visits to the Foley Nursing Home to play bingo and visit with the resi- dents. At Christmas, they also presented a sewing machine to the nursing home. Volunteering cadets spent Saturday morn- ings in November selling pop- pies or " Buddy Poppies " to raise roughly $1000 for Veter- ans of Foreign Wars (VFW). On November 23, ROTC or- ganized a bike-a-thon to raise money for St. Judes ' Children ' s Research Hospital. Offering two 10-speed bikes, AM FM cas- sette " Boom Boxes, " and porta- ble radios as prizes for their rid- ers, they raked in $4800. Besides participating in fun- draisers, members of the ROTC Honor Guard presented arms at seven football games and ten basketball games. While the color guard took part in three Veterans ' Day ceremonies, two Parent Teacher Association (PTA) open houses, and five pa- rades, the drill team marched in six parades.

Members of the clarinet and flute section find watching Mr. Don Snowden helps them stay together. Top hats and gloves set members of the Dixie Land Band apart as they play be- fore an audience of football fans. Spe- cial students, who wanted to be in this group were picked according to their playing abilities. With instruments in hand and heads held high, band members dawn their new uniforms and say farewell to the active band season. Members finished the season having played at eleven half- time shows. 142 Band Hours spent practicing and coordinating moves make band members Worthy of praise " I like them because they take pride in what they do, mak- ing them the very best, " com- mented Indiana Jones. " They work very hard at becoming the best and it shows in their perfor- mances, " said Melvin Prim. They met at least once every school day to practice on their beloved treasurers . . . their in- struments. These students, fifth through twelfth graders, constituted " The Pride. " To start off the year, the band put in long, sweaty summer pr actices from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. — better known to the 184 students as band camp. From August 1-29, the members re- hearsed time and time again band shows choreographed by band directors Mr. Don Snow- den and Mr. Stephen Pearce. When school started, mem- bers of the band practiced on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3 p.m. until 5 p.m. " The Pride " went over last minute touch ups for upcoming shows and practiced music for pep rallies. On October 31, the band room basement flooded when Hurricane Juan pounded the Gulf Coast. No major loss was suffered though some instru- ments and parts of uniforms were damaged. Standing erect with rifle upheld, Caria Sariego concentrates on her next moves. Hours of extra practice were put in by girls who twirled the rifles and flags.

Mr. Don Snowden choreographed the shows before band camp began. Concentration is f ie fcey word on the football field at a halftime show as flag corps members and rifle corps mem- bers " do their stuff. " Timing had to be just right for the show to be a successful one. 144 Band Praise Practice, practice, and more practice characterized the band as parade time rolled around. From marc hing on the football field to walking down the streets required adaptation by the band members. With heads held high, ' The Pride " paraded the streets for homecoming, Christmas, Shrimp Festival, and Veteran ' s Day. A chicken dinner was held on December 4. Tickets sold for $4 each. Proceeds went to the band treasury and were used for out-of-town trips and band com- petitions. About $8000 was raised off the dinner. On February 22, the band members and parents displayed other talents by putting on a show at the Foley Civic Center based on " Puttin ' on the Hits. " It was a lip synchronization that was sponsored by the parents. With tickets selling for $2, the show netted $1000. The pro- duction was called Band Aid. Also in February, the Concert and Symphonic bands went to Troy for competition. They left the school at 8 a.m. and re- ttllL » A i -. ' turned at 12 p.m. that night. The band received all ones in the competition — one being the highest number possible for an excellent performance. The band took pledges for the playa-thon held at the Sea Oats Festival. They played for 12 hours at the beach on March 22, and afterwards collected about $1500 that went into the fund for the band trip to Atlan- ta, Georgia. Duffle bags, luggage, maga- zines, and playing cards could be seen in the hands of the Con- cert and Symphonic band mem- bers on April 18, at 6 a.m. The band loaded into buses and headed to Troy for state compe- tition. Following the trip to Troy, the band traveled on to Atlanta, Georgia for a fun day at Six Flags. It was not uncommon to hear people bragging on the band. Standing ovations and cheers following performances demon- strated the pride students and members of the community felt for the 324 members of this or- ganization. With snares and mallets all drumming in unison, the percussion section of the band provides the needed background used in the songs. The percussion sec- tion also spent extra hours practicing on routines and drum solos. Band 145 Showing hogs at the Greater Gulf State Fair can be challenging.

How many people do you know who could judge land and dairy cattle, re- store a 1955 Mercury car, go to Kansas City, Kansas for a con- vention, and sell 19,000 boxes of oranges? To be exact there were 78 boys, 5 girls, and 2 men who accomplished this. Who were they? The Future Farmers of America, of course. FFA consisted of Ag I through Ag III. Ag I and III dealt mainly with mechanics and hor- ticulture. Ag 11 consisted of offi- cers which were also involved in horticulture and mechanics. Over 19,000 boxes of Sun Sweet oranges were sold as a fundraiser. They were pur- chased from Tampa, Florida and delivered to the Irwin ' s grain elevator where they were picked up by customers. Over $3000 was taken in from the or- ange sale. On November 9 through 11, FFA students attended the Na- tional Future Farmers of Amer- ica Convention held in Kansas City, Kansas. Representatives from the 50 states attended. Lectures were held at the con- vention where students went to learn more about their organiza- tion. Various award and speak- ing contest ceremonies were held for students and schools receiving special recognition. Robert Trimble commented, " 1 think that the convention was very interesting. There were over 20,000 people who were all dressed in blue jackets alike. The people there were also very friendly. " Public speaking contests were held at the school for FFA students. Seven students par- ticipated. Out of the seven, the winner chosen was Michael Kai- ser. Hours of preparing and practicing were put in, in order to win such an accomplish- ment. Michael went on to win the County title also. Conversing and comparing scores, members of the cattle judging team meet to decide on how closely they judged the cattle. The club members won the judging and went on to the next level of judging in Atmore. FFA 147 Sanding down the back fender of an old car, Kenny Kaiser and Robert Trimble work fifth period with mech anics. Other projects included working on Mr. Carv- er ' s truck or their own cars. With crescent wrench in hand, Kevin Watkins, Tim Hattamer, and Jeff May- berry operate on the block of a 1955 Mercury. Hours of work as well as studying the operation of an engine were necessary to get the motor run- ning again. While working out the details, Tammy Carver makes sure that all the arrange- ments are made for the national FFA Convention. Tammy was one of the stu- dents who represented the school in Kansas City.

The car was kept in the storage shed behind the Ag building which made it convenient for any type of weather. Each day students would head out to the shed and make the necessary repairs. And although the work proved to be " long and tedious, " the reward came in the end when the car was completed. On March 7, the cattle judg- ing team got to work. On the Dillon ' s Dairy Farm, five schools met to compete against each other for judging cattle of all ages. Various aspects such as the height and weight of the cow were taken Into consider- ation while judging the cows. Club members of FFA took notes on the cattle to aid in making an oral presentation after all the scorecards were turned in. In the end the note taking paid off because the judging team w on best overall in the competition. Constructing various types of buildings enabled the stu- dents to show off their skills. One such time was when the Home Economics Department asked the Ag students to build a storage cabinet for their sup- plies. Once again, the students assembled and together they got the job done. Through activities, contests, and judgings, the students end- ed the year having gained — awards, knowledge, and pride.

Although it wasn ' t the U.S., or the state, or even the local gov- ernment, these students used their abilities as leaders and be- came involved in the Student Government Association (SGA). They began their service the previous school year, when elected a new officer, in the spring. After campaigning for two weeks, the candidates made speeches before the stu- dent body and were later voted on. The familiar voices heard ev- ery morning on announcements were the four SGA officers. The club was in charge of buying the letters for and changing the message, weekly, on the sign in front of the high school. They also had a reception at the be- ginning of the year, to welcome new students to school. As it was for most clubs, homecoming and Christmas were some of the busiest times of the year. For homecoming festivities, members decorated a golf cart for the parade and decorated the Shopper ' s Plaza window. For their window dis- play, the group captured the first place award. Also, the club sponsored the annual home- coming dance in the gym. At the Christmas assembly, they helped to get the crowd aroused by leading them as they sang " Frosty the Snowman. " The 42 representatives and four officers were sponsored by Mrs. Jean Killian who attended all activities the club was in- volved in. One of these events was the annual blood drive which was held in the library. Any student, 17 or older and weighing over 105 pounds, could help out the local blood bank. Their goal was 70 pints and the group not only met their goal, but also exceeded it by collecting 99 pints. Showing their support for the school and their leadership qua- lities, SGA members attended meetings and relayed the infor- mation back to their homeroom class. This club proved stu- dents had the capabilities to lead their classmates to a suc- cessful year. Stuffing a helmet, to create their own kind of " spirit. " Matt Maurin helps with the window display.

SGA won first place for their window display in the annual homecoming parade. SGA 151 Serving students continuously, the student council shifts Into high gear While most students were gulping down potato chips, Cokes, and other junk food from the canteen, one group of students chose to spend their time in the library. The group was composed of students who were in the sixth through the eighth grades. They came pre- pared with notebooks, pencils, and pens. The assembled stu- dents composed the Middle School Student Council. Meetings were held in the li- brary on Mondays or Wednes- days every two weeks. At about 10:07 a.m., members of the club crowded into the library. And at about 10:17 a.m., they rushed out walking to their third period class. Discussing activi- ties and making plans for events on the agenda usually dominated the time at the meet- ings. A traditional event was Ala- bama Auburn Day. It was a day when students proudly exhibit- ed all the latest fads in clothing with either " Roll Tide " or " War Eagle " displayed. Holidays seemed to over- whelm the representatives and officers of the council. Various events proved this to be true. At Christmas time the group raised money by getting dona- tions from students in each homeroom. Mrs. Trixie Phillips ' classes alone raised $140. Alto- gether the students raised over $250 which was used to buy Christmas gifts for children in lower grades who were less for- tunate. Then on Valentine ' s Day the club made candy treats for teachers and put them in their mailboxes in the office. Governing occupied the council when hackey sacks were banned from school. The only way that they could be brought back was if the student council assembled a set of rules and enforced them. Once again the council got to work. A num- ber of meetings were held be- fore final rules were made. Then on March 6, they submitted the rules to principal Ivan Jones for his approval. Entering into the spring, new plans had to be made for an up- coming event — the middle school prom. Officers of the council met and decided where and when the prom would take place. The results were as fol- lows: the date and time was set for Friday, April 1 1 , from 7 until 11 p.m. at the gym. The dress code was semi-formal and the cost was $4 single and $5 cou- ple. In order to recognize those students who maintained a high scholastic average, the SGA placed honor roll banners in the cafeteria. The banners dis- played all the people ' s names who had made A, B, and AB honor roll in the sixth through eighth grades. Activities planned and car- ried out daily affected life at school. Appreciation from hackey sack players and prom goers evidenced the fact that council members served stu- dents continuously. Middle School Student Coun cil — Front: Lezley Everage (secretary).

Middle School Student Council 153 Becoming a member of Interact is a service-minded Girl ' s goal Girls, girls, more girls, and a few guys, it was a guy ' s dream and a girl ' s goal. Willi a full cal- endar, the Interact Club field high standards for their mem- bers throughout the year. The girls and guys maintained a 2.5 grade point average and attend- ed a certain percentage of meet- ings and group trips to church to be eligible to remain in th e club. With sponsor Mrs. Gwen McFerrin and Rotary sponsor Mr. Thack Dyson attending ev- ery meeting, the club got to- gether once a month on Tues- day night and occasionally got in an extra meeting at break. Since Interact was a Rotary sponsored club, Fridays meant lunch at the Gift Horse for se- lected representatives. A high- light for the girls was choosing 12 boys to be their big brothers, who participated the same as a female member. The club sponsored many ac- tivities that served a purpose in the community. They held a yard sale at the school, giving all proceeds to St. Jude ' s Hospi- tal. At Christmas time the club raffled off a side of beef, giving the money earned to the local Boy ' s Ranch. Also during the yuletide season, the club spon- sored " Toys for Tots. " Mem- bers and townspeople brought old toys to Cobbs Country Twin Cinema and got to watch a free movie. These toys were given to needy families for Christmas gifts. The club relaxed at Steph- anie Brice ' s house after the hec- tic Christmas season. Members brought snacks, drinks and a gift to swap with a friend. The club voted to sponsor a child from Kenya to whom they sent $20 every month. On March 9, the club held the annual beauty pageant at the civic center. All proceeds from the pageant went to camp ASCCA (Ala- bama Society for Crippled Chil- dren and Adults). Another mon- ey maker was Club 100 dances for older citizens. Interact was hired to serve and received $100 for their time. On April 16, the club closed out the year with a banquet at the Golden Corral. Following a filling steak meal, certificates were given out and special rec- ognitions were made. Any girl or guy selected to be a member of Interact had a busy year of earning money, working on projects, and having a good time with friends. The club was dedicated to school and community service.

Such events as riding a bike, acting as their favorite ani- mal, and seeing who could lick a sucker in the sexiest manner composed the interview. Sweet- hearts of the Key Club were se- lected following nominees ' tryouts. Girls had to receive a special invitation in order to be a part of the club. Choosing sweethearts was just one part of the club ' s activi- ties for the year. Members host- ed a clean-up for the Heritage Museum in Elberta. The girls and guys showed up and helped clear woods by clearing under- brush and cutting trees. Key chains were sold in early Octo- ber for $1 each. The club raised $150 off the project. Soon after this the Key Club joined with the Interact to raise money for St. Jude ' s Children ' s Hospital by hosting a yard sale. Mem- bers of both organizations brought a minimum of five ob- jects to be sold. An amount of $225 was raised for the hospi- tal. When Christmas rolled around, members got busier. The week before the Christmas parade, members met at Dana Cleverdon ' s barn for four nights from 6-10 p.m. to build a float. The final project was entitled " The Essence of Christmas. " In January a Hack-a-thon took place. Students skilled with hacky sacks showed up at the high school gym to display their talents at a competition. The number one project of the year was the Key Club Kiwanis Club Golf Tour- nament at Gulf Shores on May 24. Each contestant that par- ticipated paid an entry fee of $10. Cokes and other items were sold at two different holes on the golf course. Prizes to the winners were gift certificates to the Joe Terry Pro Shop. The money that was raised by this project provided two $500 scholarships. " The scholar- ships were for deserving seniors that needed it, " commented Mr. Terry Grant, sponsor of the Key Club. The Key Club faculty scholarship committee, which consisted of guidance counsel- ors and a few seniors from the club, decided who would re- ceive the scholarships. These activities kept the Key Club and the sweethearts on the run for the community. iliiiii Bakxt ' ..w ii HHHBBi Key Club — Front: Terry Grant (spon- Blake, Hays Dunnam, Brian Under- sor), Matt Maurin (vice president), Mike wood, Geoffrey Lipscomb, Edward Hin- McConnell (secretary) Kerry Flowers son, Edward Norman, Laurence Wilson, (president), Zan Peirce (treasurer).

Key Club 157 Through rehearsals and performances students set sights On Broadway " Oh, I ' m in drama because I want my name in tine yearbook one more time, " commented Ricky Jensen Inalf-heartedly smiling tnumorously. Members of the drama club were required to attend 75 percent of the meetings and pay yearly dues of $2. Thespians were required, in addition to dues and meet- ings, to have a total of 100 hours in theater arts. Having a good sense of humor could just as well have been a requisite. " We all had a lot of fun. We could forget about everything else and just be ourselves while we were together in drama, but we didn ' t forget why we were there, " said Christy Mollis. Five superior ratings in dis- trict competition proved that students had worked to grasp the basics and develop their own style whether it was by watching their peers perform or through rehearsals. Of the five superiors that placed at district, four placed at state. Keith McKerall won second in humor- ous interpretation. The other three, Todd Koniar, Amy New- ell, and Lydia Gaignard, all placed third in their respective categories. Thespians and drama club were also active in community and school activities. Both at Halloween and at Christmas, members dressed in costumes and entertained children at the Foley Presbyterian Church chil- dren ' s parties. In late October when Ballet Mississippi gave a guest performance at the Foley Civic Center, the drama club told stories to entertain children who attended. Also, in conjunc- tion with the Performing Arts Center, they painted faces at " Art in the Park " in May. On Feb. 28 seven members set out to attend the State Thes- pian Society convention in Tus- caloosa. Here they were able to attend workshops and demon- strations in areas such as stage combat and scene design. The major project was the perfor- mance of " I Remember Mama " in May. An average of four re- hearsals a week and countless In order to make a script work for a cast, lines often must be cut and reworked. Miss Jane Lindsley works with the script from " I Remember Mama. " extra hours of memorization went into the show. The profits went to benefit Rhonda Riebe ' s medical bills. Although the drama club and the Thespians were considered clubs by the school, many members considered them non- credited classes because they learned a great deal during ac- tivities. " Since I joined drama club I realized my potential in public speaking, and I ' ve been able to develop it, " said Angle Hinson. Drama served as a medium of more than one kind. Not only was it a club with activities for students to participate in, but it was also a class which taught skills of the theater while help- ing students to have fun. Lydia Gaignard said, " Through dra- ma, you learn a great deal, not only about the theater but about yourself. I like the idea of being able to be yourself with- out outside influences. I like the idea of drama. " ■1 r5 ' TI I H U-m H r-iF JjU E } JH ll ' ' !i K ' 1 W ;t k Thespians — Front: Wil Tuggle, Lydia Gaignard (president), Kim Gebhart.

Chorus was divided into three areas: middle school, beginner, and concert choir. Each division held certain performances. The chorus department as a whole also did concerts. Newly de- signed t-shirts served as uni- forms for each performance. Christmas was the perfect time for the chorus department to display their talents. On De- cember 12, they held a special Christmas concert. On Decem- ber 20, a special assembly was held in the high school gym in which they began the program by singing three songs. Follow- ing the assembly, concert choir performed at the Saint Paul ' s Episcopal Church for the Ro- tary Club. May 22 marked the date in which the choir ' s spring concert was held. An hour pro- gram was presented at the Fo- ley Civic Center with a recep- tion following. The whole choir also sang at the Baccalaureate service for the seniors.

They left for Montgomery at 6:30 a.m. and returned at 9 p.m. that night. They had to perform two songs before three judges. They also had to sight read in front of a judge. They were rat- ed on a scale of one to four. One was superior. They received overall ratings of superior. This made them eligible to go to State Contest at Huntingdon College. There they received overall excellent ratings. " At state competition we had the opportunity to listen to other choirs from high schools in Ala- bama, " commented director Pam Rowden. Concert Choir went to Elberta and sang for the sixth through the eighth grad- ers. They did this to encourage students to sign up for chorus. On May 4, they also performed at South Side Baptist Church for the Imagination Celebration performances. Middle school chorus took a trip to Troy State on January 31. They attended the Middle School Honor Chorus. They were required to learn eight pieces of music. They had one day of rehearsal with a choir of 200. These students came from all over the state. They stayed overnight at the Holiday Inn at Troy. Any chorus member could at- tend the All-State Auditions. The auditions were held in Feb- ruary. Three out of the eleven that attended made the All- State Choir. The students that attended had to learn eight pieces of music. The three that were chosen were part of a 512 voice choir. On March 18, Andy Hewett, Lena Crawley, and Buffy Woodyard left for Au- burn. They had three days of rehearsal, and then performed at a concert on Saturday March 23. Lena Crawley was chosen as the Alabama Vocal Associ- ation Outstanding Choral Stu- dent for District VII. She had to perform a solo before judges. She sang, " 11 est doux, 11 est bon. " Students that were part of the chorus department at- tended many competitions and performed for many audiences. Jane Wiggins summed it up, " You learn a lot about music when you ' re in chorus, and we enjoy it very much.

Arriving at the high school at 6 a.m. three days a week, the Varsi- ty Cheerleaders learned and prac- ticed cheers and chants for the up- coming football season. Work schedules, summer activities, and family trips had to be planned around the seven young ladies ' practices. " Summer practices were the worst, " exclaimed Shan- non Walden. Four days of cheerleading camp at the University of West Florida in August were enough to send seven extremely hoarse girls back to town after winning the spirit stick every night. The girls came back having learned new cheers, chants, pyramids, partner stunts, and boogie routines. As a fundraiser, the cheer- leaders chose to sell stadium cush- ions during football season. This meant pounding the pavement during the summer to sell ads for the backs of the cushions. Fortu- nately " the cushions were a big success " according to sponsor Mrs. Brenda Eddins. When the night of the first home game rolled around, the cheer- leaders were remembered by the football players. Kerry Flowers commented, " We sent them roses to express our ap- preciation for all their hard work. " On the team ' s only open Fri- day night, the seven girls got together for " cheerleaders ' night out " and went to see Fair- hope take on McGill. After- wards, they spent the night at Shannon Walden ' s house. " I think the Foley-Fairhope pep rally was the best of the High in the air. Suzanne Adams jumps with excitement over a close call on the field. The cheerleaders often became so involved in the game that they forgot about the crowd for a while. year, " commented Dina Wat- ley. The cheerleaders put in hours of practice on their pom- pon passing dance to " Go For It " in hopes to " wow " the crowd. As a special finale, the lights were dimmed and a huge 1 was lit for the players as they joined the cheerleaders in the center of the gym and lis- tened to the team song " In the Air Tonight. " The end of football season was a sad time for senior cheer- leaders, but before they had time to mourn its end, basket- ball season began. The cheer- leaders welcomed four male ad- ditions to the squad. With their added strength and number, the cheerleaders were able to per- form better pyramids, stunts, and routines. " All in all, it was a busy, suc- cessful, fun-filled year, " com- mented Sherry Lukers. Getting up at the wee hours of the morn- ing for summer practices, pre- paring for and traveling to sum- mer camp, and choreographing pep rallies, the varsity cheer- leaders radiated spirit and showed their support for the school. Sweaty and uncomfortable. Suzanne Ad- ams and Sherry Lukers grin and bear the pain. The cheerleaders ' positions in the pyr- amids depended on their size and strength. i nervously, Susan Lipscomb introduces the latest song from Corey Hart as Marathon Mike coaches her.

Varsity Cheerleaders 163 They only averaged 100 pounds, but they still nnanaged to spark, pep, and excite the crowds at the junior high and junior varsity football and bas- ketball games. Who were these lightweights? The Junior Varsi- ty Cheerleaders. Under the new direction of Mrs. Rachel Prater, the squad practiced cheers, chants, and pyramids for an average of one and a half hours a day and as many as five days a week. A junior varsity cheerleader was best described as energy in motion. That was the conclu- sion drawn from the observa- tion of the eight-member squad. They constantly charged the area in their vicinity with pow- er. The squad ' s one concern was to make sure that the fans and Lightweights deal Spirit blows the parents had the winning spirit. Through their chants, the cheerleaders hoped to ingrain into the fans the " Lion " spirit. By selling doughnuts and sponsoring a car wash during Showing their spirit at a football game, Shelly Leonard. LaSharen Knight, Shel- ly Zeigler, and Angela Brooks mount into shoulder stands during kickoff. " Lions Roar " sounds through the stadi- um until the ball is kicked. the summer, the squad took in $163 to purchase eight new sweaters and pom-pon sets. " This is the first year the junior varsity squad has had sweaters and pom-pons. " 1 am glad we got the chance to fundraise so that we could purchase them, " commented Elizabeth Dodelin. During the homecoming game and the second play-off game, the cheerleaders were given a new privilege. Asked by the varsity cheerleaders, the squad cheered at these varsity games to help boost crowd par- ticipation. They were also al- lowed to do chants and pyra- mids at three varsity pep rallies. Smiles radiated from the cheerleaders after each perfor- mance. And although they were lightweights, they still main- tained an action-packed year. Although pyramid building is Fun, it can be dangerous. The squad discovers this after a collapse on their first attempt. Chants and cheers burst from the junior varsity cheerleaders. After a week of perfecting cheers, they demonstrate their skills at the varsity pep rally. 164 Jr. Varsity Cheerleaders As the hoi summer afternoon disap- pears.

Jr. Varsity Cheerleaders 165 Quick reflexes and sharp minds cause Scholar ' s Bowl members to see Buzzing Lights Concentration was the key. Holding tlie buzzer tigiitly in their hand and listening for a fa- miliar question, they just hoped that their own blue light would come on first. Reading numerous maga- zines and newspapers kept Scholar ' s Bowl Team members up with current events — the ba- sis of most of their questions. Once or twice a month, the team piled in a school bus and headed for Faulkner State Ju- nior College in Bay Minette. They were spiffed up with ties, sports coats, and dresses or dress pants, and usually carry- ing trivia books and newspa- pers. While some intent stu- dents quizzed each other on questions from the newest triv- ia books, others had radios blar- ing in the back seat. Once there, the students had a snack, usual- ly Coke and doughnuts, and headed for their first meet. They played each Baldwin County team once. Consisting of freshmen and sophomores on the junior team and juniors and seniors on the senior team, the teams were asked questions and given bonuses. At the end of the round, the team with the highest number of points won the game. Once all teams had been played, the members headed for the cafeteria first, the recreational building next, and finally back to the bus for the trip home. Practice was held once or twice a week in the library. " Scholar ' s bowl is a unique group of people who enjoy com- peting on an academic and intel- lectual level, " commented sen- ior team sponsor Mrs. JaNay Dawson. The junior team was coached by Mrs. Martha Brew- er. Although to outsiders it would seem that the most an- ticipated part of the competi- tion would be the actual meet, it seemed that the team members enjoyed the bus trip and the re- creational building the most. Al- ways bringing along a deck of cards, they sat at tables and played rummy or twenty-one. The end of the season came with district competition on April 17. The team had an end of the year cook-out and pool party. Besides the enjoyment the students got from the competi- tions, they had a chance to use the knowledge they had gained over the years. The competitors made new friends and acquired tid-bits of information from win- ning and losing their meets. There Is more to competition than buzz- ing lights, Kerry Flowers, Geoff Lips- connb, and Todd Koniar work to com- plete a problem within five seconds. 166 Scholar ' s Bowl Getting accustomed to buzzing lights, students practice at a trial competition in the library. County science supervi- sor Mrs. Marie Patrick observes as the competition takes place. Playing cards is another way to fill time.

" That was the question asked by many of the poeple who ob- served a small group of stu- dents at the elementary school. The organized group of stu- dents, which was sponsored by Mrs. Sara Thompson, called it- self the Citizenship Club. A better name could not have been given to the club, because although they were small in stature, they promoted citizen- ship throughout the school. They also served as student re- presentatives of the school. Through various activities, these small wonders encour- aged student participation. Last but not least, their duties includ- ed promoting school spirit and school pride. Officers for the club were chosen by the students in grades 3-5. The president was elected in the fifth grade, and the vice president, treasurer, and secretary in the fourth grade. For membership in the club, one representative was chosen from each homeroom in grades 3-5. " 1 think it is an honor to be chosen as president of the Citizenship Club. Just to be part of the club is exciting to me be- cause the club does a lot of fun activities that I enjoy, " said Dawn Thompson. The club sponsored a spell- ing bee and a Christmas door decoration contest. They also sponsored the " Student of the Month. " One student was se lected from each grade and pic tured on the hall bulletin board They were chosen from the fol lowing categories: best hand writing, best math, most athle tic, most helpful, best language arts, and most improved. These small wonders made it known throughout the school that there was no job or task that they couldn ' t accomplish. Regularly sponsoring activities across the elementary campus, members of the Citizenship Club promoted activities throughout the year. .- ; mn u r v« r jkm mi fi Cii..--. m § Saluting the flag while saying the Pledge of Allegiance is the first order of business on morning announcements.

The spe- cialist gave it the greatest gift of all ... life. As the technician walked into the lab to play with his new invention it responded with a " ba goora. " It had pow- ers beyond man. Was this in- vention in the twilight zone? No, it was the computer lab that opened up the wonders of this machine. The students who worked with the invention were members of the Computer Club. In order to learn more about computers, students attended various activities. They went on a field trip to the National Space Technology Lab in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. The club also participated in the Baldwin County Fair and won first place with their computer exhibit. On Jan. 30-Feb. 1, they made a pre- sentation at the Alabama Coun- cil for Computer Education in Huntsville, Alabama. The club was also responsible for serving the students in grades K-12 in the computer lab. An offer by the Alabama De- partment of Public Safety was accepted by the club. As a re- sult, the club produced a pro- gram called " Safety Software, " a computer version of the Ala- bama Driver ' s Handbook that was distributed throughout the state. The club fundraised through out the year by sponsoring two dances, which were held at the gym for grades 6-12. Adding a certain distinction to posters ad- vertising the dances, the mem- bers made posters printed by the computers. Various activities, field trips, and even dances helped to ful- fill a year of action for this club, and all because of the new in- vention called the computer. Computer Club — Front: Mary Popp, J.R.

(Inactive club) Computer Science Club 171 Did you think you would join another club just to get your picture in the yearbook one more time? Well, the American Field Service (AFS) and the Spanish Club were not to be joined unless students were really interested. Celebrating 25 years of ser- vice and activities, AFS kept a busy schedule throughout the year. With its sponsor, Mrs. Marilyn Cobb, AFS became in- volved soon after school got into full swing. The club deco- rated a float for homecoming and captured the first place prize. Knowing how the student body enjoyed getting to know exchange students, AFS spon- sored four foreign students, the most ever. In order to introduce them to other students, AFS held an assembly in which each exchange student gave a short speech about his country. Holidays were busy times for most clubs and AFS was no ex- ception. Each member was giv- en a secret pal to whom he wrote letters and sent notes. Then at the Christmas party, held at Lonna Herronen ' s house, they each gave their pal a gift. At the Christmas assem- bly in the gym, the club led the student body in singing " Ru- dolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. " Money raisers filled the sched- ule as the club prepared for a Christmas trip to Disney World If joining clubs for attention, Think Again in Orlando, Florida. Bowls of chili, selling for $1, warmed throats at the homecoming football game. The club also raf- fled off a stuffed dog and a game football. Students left on December 27 and returned De- cember 30, enjoying four fun- filled days with their friends away from hectic school days. Marylon Hand commented, " We all went on a bus; we had a lot of fun just being together. " At Easter, the club helped the Baldwin County Shriners, who sponsored an Easter Egg Hunt for disabled children in the com- munity. The members made Easter baskets, hid eggs and helped fix hotdogs at lunch- time. As an annual event, the group attended AFS weekend in Cullman, Alabama. This gave the students a chance to meet other AFS students and ex- change students from different schools. Another club interested in dif- ferent countries and languages was the Spanish Club. On De- cember 20, the club sponsored the first Christmas Prom. They spent seven hours decorating the gym in bright red and green. Leslie and the Hound Dog, from WABB, provided music for the evening as the club crowned Mr. and Miss FHS, nominated by seniors and voted on by the teachers. A Christmas banquet was held in December in the cafete- ria. After 6 weeks of practice, the club sang Spanish Christ- mas Carols, performing for par- ents and friends. During the year, the club raf- fled off a teddy bear, selling chances for $1, and held a bake sale at Ratcliff Village during the Shrimp Festival. The mon- ey raised from these projects went toward an annual scholar- ship, which was awarded to Cheryl Russell for outstanding senior Spanish student. On May 9, the club spon- sored Teacher Appreciation Day, and that evening in the gym they held a Beach Party Dance. To close out the year, the club held a spring banquet. A guest speaker was invited, and the club honored senior mem- bers and gave out special awards. With the help of sponsor Ms. Jo Solorzano the club ' s year was filled with activities. They kept busy with dances, fun- draisers, and meetings. Both of the clubs showed the school ' s interest in different lan- guages and cultures. They en- abled the students to under- stand and familiarize themselves with people and places from around the world while staying in their own com- munity.

AFS Spanish Club 173 By improving mathematical skills, students are opening Doors to numbers Numbers were the key for both Math Club and Mu Alpha Theta members. Although the Math Club was called a club, it operated more as a team. The team had no civic functions or fundraisers, nor did it have offi- cers. The simple purpose of the math club was to practice and prepare for the numerous oppo- nents at competition through an average of five practices dur- ing the year. The first competition was the Faulkner State Math Competi- tion held on Saturday, March 22 at Faulkner State Junior Col- lege (FSJC) in Bay Minette. Here the math team members competed against other high school geometry. Algebra II, and advanced math students. The competition consisted of two areas of testing, a two hour written test, and a ciphering math test of speed and accura- cy which allowed 90 seconds for each of the four team mem- bers to answer four problems. Although none of the Foley stu- dents placed, sponsor Mrs. Pam Hand said, " Foley did consider- ably well. David McRae, in ge- ometry, scored only one point less on the written test than the high scorer. " On April 5 the geometry team went to the University of South Alabama (USA) for the Alabama Statewide Mathemat- ical contest. Once again the team did not place but faired well in competition. The Alge- bra I class had only one chance to compete against their peers at the Gulf Regional Mathemat- ics competition on April 26. Mu Alpha Theta was a math honor society open to juniors and seniors who met the high academic standards in math. In order to be invited to join the club, a junior or senior had to be in Algebra II or advanced math at the time and have an over-all 3.0 GPA in all underclass math courses. Generally, the stu- dents in Mu Alpha Theta were the people involved in Math Club. Even though the Math Club and Mu Alpha Theta were not active, as far as fundraisers and community projects, they stayed busy preparing for actu- al competition.

Not very, once reports reached that Hurricane Elena was ap- proaching. Members of the Junior Na- tional Honor Society (JNHS) and the National Honor Society (NHS) were able to experience this situation when they hosted an orientation for students who were totally new to the high school. Refreshments were pro- vided and the new students and their parents were taken on a quick tour of the school. Mrs. Louise Taylor, sponsor of JNHS, commented, " Right after the tour we heard about Elena, jumped in our cars, and left. " The orientation program kicked off the year for the honor societies. Members of JNHS fol- lowed up the initial project by contributing $3 of their person- al money to the club ' s fund for needy Christmas gifts. In addi- tion, members tutored students needing help in various sub- jects. The tradition of welcom- ing new students to the school continued through a program called Adopt-A-Student. Plans were even made to start a Stu- dent Against Drunk Driving (SADD) Chapter. Later in the year, the NHS sent out letters to prospective inductees. After teachers evaluated the students on certain qualities, new mem- bers were chosen. Inductions took place for both societies on March 16 in the high school li- brary. Ms. Edith Lloyd, sponsor of the NHS, presented a fundraiser to the club following induc- tions. Members were responsi- ble for selling three auto kits at $5 a piece. The profits from the fundraiser went into their fund for future plans. Like the JNHS, the NHS completed community projects.

Honor Societies 177 Students work to make things Pleasing to the eye Although one semester home economic courses contributed to the drastic reduction of mem- bership in Future Homematcers of America (FHA) the small group clung together through- out the year ' s activities. Each month members of FHA met after school at the Home Ec build ing for a formal club meet- ing. A $6 yearly fee, which in- cluded dues for state and na- tional chapters of FHA was required, as well as participa- tion in club fundraisers. FHA raised over $125 with a donut sale and Vocational Home Eco- nomic Cook Book. The money was also used for a trip to Sam- ford University in Birmingham for a state conference. Here they voted on state officers and were enlightened by several speakers such as Dr. Robert After cutting, de-boning, and breading a fryer. Sue Clemmons and Mereditln Buck make stir fry chicken. Students ate what they had prepared after com- pleting their cooking lab. Carter, head of vocational edu- cation. Art Club, unlike FHA, did not suffer from member deficiency. They had a full group preparing and pepping the student body for weekly athletic games by making and decorating the campus with spirit boosting posters . The Art Club was ac- tive with the Performing Arts Center through making trick-or- treat bags for children who at- tended the Ballet Mississippi performance. They also dis- played works at " Art In The Park " on May 10. Whether eating donuts sold by FHA or gazing at artwork dis- played by the Art Club, both clubs made their presence known. . -. -% v ji jp FHA — Front: Margaret Briggs (spon- sor), Meredith Buck, Rosanna Castro, Danielle Jones, Lynn Dukes.

Each time one of the elev- en deadlines rolled around, staff members rushed to complete unfinished spreads. Editor Son- dra Callaway recalls the earliest deadline on November 22 as a " day I don ' t want to remem- ber. " Even though the first dead- line wasn ' t until a month and a half into the school year, the yearbook was a year round job. During the summer, the entire book was planned section by section, and a complete budget was worked out. Roughly, the 1986 book, with all its new graphics and extras, would cost $30,000 to produce. This budget was met by sev- eral means. The three major fundraisers were class and envi- ronmental pictures, from which the staff received a percentage of the profits; the annual Miss Blue and Gold contest and dance, in which $3659.06 was raised; and a massive ad cam- paign headed by Meredith Walsh. After the summer the staffers ended up having milked the local merchants of over $9,165 in exchange for advertis- ing. Other efforts were made to boost income. The cost of a yearbook was increased from $15 to $17, a balloon derby was held at the McGill football game, which raised $300 and the third annual wash-a-thon held at First Southern Federal brought in $612.83. Raising money was just part of the responsibilities of the group. The staff was comprised of 20 hand selected students who were expected to cover ev- ery aspect of the school year and fill the footsteps of pre- vious award winning books. Tal- ented prospects were insured at summer workshops when three staff members won best over-all at Yearbook South in Birming- ham, Alabama, and Alabama Yearbook in Mobile, Alabama. For those honors the 1986 staff was awarded 16 pages of spot color, which was used in the mini mag. and eight pages of full color. For work on the book, the vol- ume was divided into eleven sections, student life, sports, underclass, elementary, sen- iors, faculty, academics, organi- zations, ads, and index. Each of the sections differed in ways ranging from background col- ors to rule lines to column width. This made each student a specialist while designing lay- outs, gathering information, or fitting it all together in copy, captions and completed spreads. Although some deadlines were missed and the staff was put through hectic times, the overall outlook for the upcom- ing book was more than good. As Rebecca Donelson said, " Even though many times when the deadlines came around and we came up short, the talent the staff had evened out the mess. " Giving students a preview, staffers arouse the seniors. By giving a short presentation, the yearbool staff intro- duced students to the upcoming book. Each picture in a yearbook is cropped, or made to size. Walt Stewart crops sports picture. In preparation for the yearbook sales assembly Daniel Thompson. Patrick Ir- win, Jennifer Lange and Vickie Ewing help to decorate the gym. Each year the book is introduced with an assembly. . i. dkfe 182 Sport Division Sports Straining for every inch, the varsity football Lions grind out a dramatic comefrombehind victory over the Davidson Warriors. The 21-20 playoff win advanced the team to the second round of the state playoffs. The year was outstanding. Exceeding their ususal ath- letic performance, student athletes and coaches found hidden potential which set them apart and allowed them to leave their mark. Lonna Herronen, a varsity girls ' soccer member, be- came the first local athlete ever to capture a position on the state soccer team. The group traveled to Athens, Georgia to compete national- ly with four other state teams. Keith Smith, a varsity football member, became the recipi- ent of the First Baptist Church of Foley ' s Challenger Award for the third consecu- tive year, the first ever to do so. Coach Al Borchardt led his 20-member girls ' soccer team to its second consecutive un- defeated season and its first league championship. Coach Eddie Willis also led his junior high girls ' basketball team to their second consecutive un- defeated season and county championship. And just as the soccer, football, and basketball teams had left their mark both as teams and individ- uals, varsity basketball games also left their mark. An increase in student participa- tion of the games was largely due to the halftime attrac- tions which ranged from a surf party to a Mardi Gras pa- rade. With a monumental desire to win, student athletes and coaches made a joint effort to succeed. Together they worked toward doing more — all the time doing it better. Basl ing in the glory of her new title. Metta Chris- tensen is proclaimed champion in the surfer contest. The competition drew a near capacity crowd of beach-clad students to the basketball game. Drenched with sweat, Metta Christen- sen (11) heads toward a Fairhope de- fender. The Lions ' victory over the Pi- rates thrust them into a battle with Daphne for the tournament title. Stepping in front of a Fairhope oppo- nent, Rickey Pigott struggles to steal the ball. Pigott scored one goal to help the Lions shut out the Pirates 2-0. Ladd stadium sets the scene for the Lions ' first playoff game. The passing game proved to be the margin of victory as the team came from behind to win 21-20 over the Davidson Warriors. 184 Playoff Teams secure championships with victories Bursting into the ranks of champions, the Varsity Foot- ball Team, the Girls ' Varsity Soccer Team, and the Girls ' Ju- nior High Basketball Team achieved the goal of competing to be number one in their sports. As the season ended, the football team claimed a runner- up position in their area after a 13-16 loss to Fairhope in the reg- ular season. The Lions met with the Davidson Warriors for the first round playoff game at Ladd Stadium. A 6-yard run by quarterback Kerry Flowers, fol- lowed by a 2-yard run for a two point conversion, gave the team an early lead. The War- riors eliminated that lead after Davidson tailback Tyronne Da- vis and Eric Rogers each made touchdowns to give Davidson a 14-8 lead. Then, with less than a minute to go in the half, Derrick Nicholson caught an 18-yard pass from Flowers to give the Lions a 15-14 lead. The Lions could not hold on to their lead, however, as Davidson came back to once again take the lead 20 -15. With time ticking off the clock, the Lions set up for one last attempt at a victory. With fourth down and one yard to go. Flowers eyed split end Stoney Hall sprinting for the corner of the endzone. After a quick fake, Flowers rolled and rifled an aeri- al into the corner. As Hall stretched out parallel to the ground, the ball settled on his fingertips, and he brought it down for the touchdown. Fo- ley ' s two point conversion at- tempt failed. With less than a minute left in the game, David- son had one final attempt at a score. The fans held their breath as Warrior quarterback Greg Crossley let the ball fly. As the ball neared its target. Lion defensive back Spencer Frost stepped in front of the received for an interception. The game ended in a 21-20 victory for the Lions. Despite the breathtaking fin- ish of the Lions ' first playoff game, the Fairhope Pirates in- terferred with their champion- ship hopes. During the second game, the Lions were held to one first down in the first half. Their deepest penetration to the Pirates 7, the Lions were held scoreless throughout the game. Fairhope left with a 23-0 victo- ry, dashing the Lions ' hopes of a state championship title. For the second consecutive year, the girls ' junior high bas- ketball team emerged on top as the Baldwin County Champi- ons. After dominating all oppo- nents during the regular season, the team defeated Fairhope 46-20 in the first game of the county tournament. After a match with Daphne, the Lions secured the championship title 49-23. The girls led throughout the entire game. Renee Fortner said, " We were nervous, be- cause they were the only team that could beat us. " For the game, the gym was packed with a near capacity crowd. Metta Christensen was named most valuable player and Renee Fortner all tournament player. The ninth graders ended the season with a 10-0 record. Coach Eddie Willis commented, " The girls worked extremely hard and endured long, hard practices to achieve their suc- cess. " After a last-second tourna- ment loss to McMcGill-Toolen the previous year, the girls ' soc- cer team was looking for re- venge. With eleven wins and no losses, the team ' s record was blemished only by a single tie with Fairhope during the regu- lar season. In the first game of the tournament, the Lions de- feated J.T. Wright and earned another shot at Fairhope. De- spite the revenge factor, the Lions were held in a 0-0 dead- lock throughout the first half. When the whistle blew for the beginning of the second half, the Lions took charge. Left wing Jennifer Graham scored the first goal. A second goal by Rickey Pigott clenched the win for the team. The Lions defeat- ed Fairhope 2-0 to finish the sea- son as tournament and league champs. At the beginning of the sea- son goals were set. During the course of the season, sacrifices were made. The end results were championship teams. Whether scoring touchdowns, baskets, or goals, each team etched its way into the victory column. Playoff Teams 185 provide visions of perfection Poised precariously on tiie edge of a surf board, beach loving students found adventure and athletic fulfill- ment riding the waves. Others less daring chose skating, gymnastics, or dance to release their pent-up ener- gies. Involved in non-school related activities, these students demonstrat- ed their talents at exhibitions, meets, and contests. Serious surfers, seen skimming over the water, spent many hours a day perfecting their Hang lO ' s and 360 ' s. A popular sport among sea- side dare-devils, surfing provided a means of escape from the safety of inland society. A more common sport among land lovers was skating. Gliding under a disco ball and strobe and colored lights, skaters rocked while rolling to hits by Tears For Fears and A-Ha. While some students chose to skate on eight wheels, others preferred to use only four. A recently constructed ramp, built by avid skateboarders, provided ample room near the beach for showing off and hanging air. Competition was the trademark of a gymnast. With visions of Mary Lou Retton ' s " 10 " vault dancing in their heads, children from age 4 up not only took classes several times a week but also trained outside of class. Striving to hold audiences breath- less, dancers combined athletic strength and flowing movements to provide a cultured form of entertain- ment. Beginning with a " demi plei " and peaking with a " grandjete, " balle- rinas reached for perfection. What was the most popular unor- ganized sport around school? Hacky Sacking. People from one corner of the campus to the other played it with a small round bean-bag called a Hacky Sack. Standing in a circle, no fewer than three people tried to return the sack to another player — using their feet, knees, chest, and head — without letting the sack touch the ground. The official purpose of play- ing with a Hacky Sack was to im- prove a person ' s leg-eye co-ordination and to enhance their soccer skills. Un- officially, however, Hacky Sacking gave students a constructive means to kill time between classes. To play this sport students went to great lengths — even to the extent of losing points off their ROTC grades for play- ing in uniform. Whichever activities students chose to participate in, they pushed themselves to the limit, striving to be- come the best. Tag football attracts students before and after school — and even on weekends. A competitive game allows students to get their minds off school work. Fast moves enable Pete Ledlow to master the ramp located behind Enigmatic Ocean in Gulf Shores. Skaters gather there to practice the latest moves on their boards. 186 Unorganized Sports For an upcoming recital, Richard Childress practices his spins, twirls, and glides. Hot Wheels supplied the facilities required for stu- dents to take lessons. Concentrating on keeping the Hacky Sack off the ground and away from his arms, Kevin Staf- ford knee kicks the ball into the Hacky circle. The latest fad to hit campus occupies students ' every spare moment. Unorganized Sports 187 the Lions dominate 7 out of 11 games to capture a playoff berth Uncertainty surrounded the open- ing ganne of the Varsity Football sea- son as Hurricane Elena postponed the nneeting of the Lions and the Blue Devils of Atmore. But neither the hur- ricane nor the one-day postponement daunted the crowd. Playing before a near-capacity crowd of over 4000, the Lions held the Blue Devils to a Chuck Brook ' s 24-yard field goal scored early in the second quarter. Amid cheers from fans, coaches, and fellow teammates, Herbert Casey, sophomore back, raced for two TDs covering 40 and 55 yards, establishing himself as a terror to opposing teams. Thomas Bullard added a TD when he carried the ball in from the 1-yard line. Mike Rea capped the scoring with a 24-yard field goal to give the Lions the 23-3 win. With one win under their belt, the Lions prepared to meet their second opponent of the season, the Davidson Warriors. The Lions edged by the Warriors 23-20. Foley started its scor- ing barrage on its first possession when Casey snagged a pitch from quarterback Kerry Flowers and scam- pered into the end zone for the first TD. Paced by Casey, Flowers, and Bullard, it took the Lions only 12 plays to drive 92 yards for the second TD, with Flowers getting the score on a 26-yard run off the left end. Early in the second quarter, the Lions took the lead 14-0. The Warriors avoided the shutout when Robert DuBose slanted into the end zone on a 5-yard run during the third period. The Warriors added a second TD by Tyrone Davis on a 75- yard run and tied the score at 14. After driving 77 yards in 1 1 plays, Bullard carried the ball into the end zone from the 1-foot line and scored the third TD of the game for the Lions. However, the PAT by Mike Rea was wide to the left, giving the Lions a 20-14 lead in the fourth period. The defense held the Warriors to eight plays and the Lions had the ball back at the Davidson 26-yard line. The Da- vidson defense held and the Lions faced fourth-and-12 at their own 19- yard line. Rea got the nod as place- kicker and kicked a 29-yard field goal, giving the Lions a 23-14 lead late in the fourth quarter. However, six plays later the Warriors scored again from their 1-yard line. The conversion failed and the Lions came out on top 23-20. Emerging on top to gain the " Crusher of the Week " award from WABB FM 97 the Lions set out for their third win of the season against the Satsuma Gators. Before the game, head coach Lester Smith said, " They have a great defense and a sol- id team. They are hard to beat be- cause they don ' t make a lot of mis- takes. " It was the Lions ' night to shine, however, as they shut out Sat- suma 30-0. After capturing the number nine spot in the state, the Lions prepared to meet Theodore. Scoring early, the Bobcats took the lead when Johnny Brown carried the ball in from the 1- yard line for a TD. Mot to be outdone, the Lions fought back to clinch the 21-14 victory, with Flowers adding two TDs and Bullard adding one. Riding high on success, the Lions downed Bay Minette 26-0. The shu- tout was the second of the season for the Lions and the win gave them a playoff berth. The Tigers threatened three times, but fumbles and intercep- tions eliminated their chances of put- ting any points on the board. The Lions ' undefeated record was halted on homecoming night, howev- er, when they encountered the North- view Cougars. With both teams scor- ing only in the fourth quarter, the game went into overtime. An inter- cepted bootleg pass on the first play from scrimmage caused the Lions to give up the ball. The Cougars sent in Clark Lopez who booted a 27-yard field goal and gave the Cougars ' the 10-7 upset win. Stretched out for the completion, Thomas Bul- lard (44) makes a crucial first down catch to keep the drive alive. The Lions shut out Sat- suma 30-0 for their first area win.

Getting the pitch, Ty Morgan (24) races around the left end eyeing Satsuma tackier Ryan Ad- dison (34). Morgan carried four times for 13 yards during the 3O0 win over the Gators. 190 Varsity Football Bouncing back from the loss to Northview, the Lions managed a come-from-behind win over Roberts- dale. Struggling to overcome the Bears ' 9-0 halftime lead, Flowers closed the gap during the third period, scoring a TD on a 2-yard run. He also added another TD when he took the ball in from the 1-foot line in the fourth quarter. The conversion failed, but the Lions still pulled through with a 13-9 win. With the Area Four Championship up for grabs, the Lions clashed with county rival Fairhope. Striking early, Casey snagged a Flowers pass on the second play from scrimmage and sprinted 59 yards to give the Lions the opening lead. Mike Williams re- covered a Charles Smith fumble, giv- ing Foley field position at the Fair- hope 45. But three plays later, cornerback Phileman Faust picked off a Flowers pass. The interception resulted in a TD for the Pirates when four plays later running back James Morrisette scampered into the end zone from the Pirates ' 2-yard line. The conversion failed and the Lions held a 7-6 advantage. However, a Kevin Grimer field goal gave the Pirates the 9-7 lead in the second quarter. Both teams remained scoreless during the third period, but an action-packed fourth quarter kept fans holding their breath. Late in the quarter, the Pirates were forced into a punting situation. At deep back re- ceiving, Casey returned the punt for a 56-yard TD romp, giving the Lions a 13-9 lead. After the kickoff return, the Pirates started what would be a short drive. Seven plays later, Nicholson inter- cepted a Morrisette pass. However, three plays later the ball was fumbled and the Pirates recovered at their own 30-yard line. A time consuming drive ended in an interception by lineback- er Ben Todd. After only three plays, the Lions were forced into a punting situation from their own 27-yard line. With 30 seconds remaining, the punt was blocked and rolled out of bounds on the Lions ' 5-yard line. On the first play from scrimmage. Smith rolled out to the left but was met by Flowers at the 1-yard line, jarring the ball loose. However, the fumble was re- covered in the end zone by the Pi- rates ' Jody McBride. The Pirates pulled out a 16-13 win. In the last game of the season, the McGill-Toolen Yellowjackets defeated Foley 22-19. A 15-yard pass comple- tion to Yellowjacket Kurt Luft capped off the scoring for McGill and the Lions were handed their third loss of the season. During the game, the Lions racked up an impressive 403 yards. Although the regular season ended with a defeat, the Lions looked for their chance at revenge in the state playoffs.

Be- ginning August 13, 60 rookies and veterans learned new formations and brushed up on rusty skills in prepara- tion for upcoming opponents. The Junior High Team ' s season consisted of only six games. In those few games they displayed their athle- tic competence by closing out the season with a 5-1 record. Frustration summed up the first two quarters of the Lions ' first game against Daphne. The Trojans led by six until midway in the third quarter when quarterback Sam Jones com- pleted a pass to Ty Freeman. Free- man then sprinted into the end zone, picking up the Lions ' only points in the game; but the Trojans scored again, erasing all hopes for a victory. After stumbling to Daphne in the first game, the Lions finished the sea- son by shutting out Bay Minette 36-0 when the Tigers mishandled the ball seven times during the game. After defeating Bay Minette, the Lions tied Daphne for the county lead. Not only did the Junior High Lions show championship characteristics, but so did the Junior Varsity as they went undefeated during the season. A high point of the JV season was the game against Fairhope. At the end of the fourth quarter, the Pirates and Lions were deadlocked 13-13. The score remained tied at the end of the first overtime with both teams gaining touchdowns. Kertz Hare broke the tie in the second overtime when he blocked Fairhope ' s extra point attempt. Once again the Lions dominated 27-26. Both teams found that long prac- tices and intense coaching resulted in high quality performances. A Junior High player remarked, " If it wasn ' t for the coaches, we wouldn ' t have been 5-1.

Girls ' Varsity Basketball Team proves worthy of fans ' support " I think we have a good basketball program with good players and good coaches, " commented fan Lydia Gaignard. " I feel we should get out and give them the support they de- serve. " That is just what students did — turn out to see the Girls ' Varsity Basketball Team throughout the sea- son. Outscoring Mary Montgomery 49- 45 during the first game of the sea- son, the team set in motion a series of ups and downs. During their second match, the Lions fell short to Bay Min- ette but came back to dominate Ro- bertsdale in the third. The Roberts- dale Bears, unable to overcome the pattern previously set, were defeated twice by the team during the course of the schedule. " In the middle of the season, the team suffered. We lacked the fire and spirit necessary to win, " commented Coach Tommy Catlin. But the team regained momentum to win five of their last seven games. Senior Peyton Peek broke the single game scoring record with 37 points when the Lions trounced Mary Montgomery for the second time by a score of 70-30. According to Coach Catlin, a 44-34 victory over St. Pauls was the high- light of the season. " In the last game, we gave St. Pauls its second defeat of the season by dominating the inside and playing super defense. Each play- er did just a great job, " he said. At the close of the regular season, Peyton Peek stated, " Overall, we ' ve im- proved a lot this season, and we hope to be 100 percent for the tourna- ment. " Going up against Fairhope in the county tournament, the Lions were tied 15-15 at the end of the first quar- ter, but Fairhope pulled ahead and went on to win by a score of 53-34. Terri Locke said, " We weren ' t up to it. We had a few good practices and a few bad practices. It just carried over into the game. " Summing up the season, fan Marie Hamilton said, " They started off strong and in the middle they had some downs. But they came back in the end, which proved they were wor- thy of our support.

The Lions fell short 33-37 against the UMS Bulldogs. y Lions attack season with liome court advantage Who goes to the basketball games? " Not me. You wouldn ' t catch me dead at a basketball game on a Friday night! " The sentiment may have been true a few years ago, or even last year; but as assistant principal Frank Wenzel commented, " It was the return of the round ball. " Employing a take-off on Burger King ' s popular " Herb " com- mercials, Mr. Wenzel organized activi- ties during the basketball games to draw a supportive crowd. Doing the " Conga, " participating in an airplane contest, or shooting a half-court free throw for a possibility of a $50 prize all enticed students to show up and join the crowd. Regarding the Mardi Gras parade during the Mary Montgomery game on February 7, Sonny Petway re- marked, " It was an excellent crowd pleaser. It helped the crowd get into the game. " But halftime crowd pleas- ers weren ' t the only reasons students came to cheer on the basketball team. The top scorer in Mobile and Bal- dwin County was center John Autrey. Using his 6 ' 5 " frame, Autrey had a scoring average of 20 points per game and kept fans hoping for one of his " slam-dunks. " As Dana Montgomery reminisced over the season ' s events she re- marked, " As I think about the season, the Mary Montgomery game comes to my mind the most. " The score changed hands constantly until the middle of the fourth quarter. Then Mary Montgomery ' s Rod Reed and Autrey became entangled in a scuffle. Even after Autrey backed away. Reed charged. Referee Jim Smith halted Reed. Reed continued to charge at Autrey; so Smith ejected Reed from the game. At center-court coach Dale Mims of Mary Montgomery protested the ejection of his player. Coach Mims then received a technical foul. Even after pocketing a technical, he continued his protesting at center- court. Referee Smith awarded Coach Mims a second technical foul and an ejection from the game. Not only did Coach Mims leave, but he took his players with him. The game was de- clared a forfeit, and was awarded to the Lions. Amid the excitement and crowd participation, the team tallied a re- cord of 12-15. Now what do you think of the basketball games? 196 Boys ' Varsity Basketball Dribbling past a Gulf Breeze player, Paul Holley (23) goes up for a goal.

The season was a complete turn about for the junior high team. For the junior varsi- ty team, it was an improvement. Tryouts were held October 30 in the gym from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. Play- ers for the junior high team were cho- sen on their performance when doing layups, passing, and the tip drill. Out of the 25 who tried out only 1 1 were chosen to play. Though losing their opening game to Bay Minette, the Lions came back to beat (JMS in the second game. Against B.C. Rain, the Lions were trailing by two points with only sec- onds left in the fourth quarter. Greg Pope took control and sprinted to the halfway mark. Then he hurled the ball into the air, and as the buzzer sounded it sank through the net. The Lions had come from behind and edged by B.C. Rain 49-48. On February 5, the team suffered a disappointing loss to Daphne during the Baldwin County Tournament. The defeat left the team in third place. The junior varsity began the sea- son under adverse circumstances. As the day of the first game rolled around, the team found itself without a coach. During the course of the day principal John Lee approached Coach Nazary about coaching the ju- nior varsity team, as well as the junior high. By game time, the team had its coach. Against Bay Minette the team achieved one of its closest wins ever. With only 12 seconds left in the game, Bay Minette scored to take the lead by one. Then Tom Woodcock took the ball down court and scored two with only six seconds remaining. Bay Minette called timeout to set up a plan of attack. Their high-scorer took the ball and attempted to lay it up. It rolled around the rim and then fell off. The final buzzer sounded. The Lions captured a win, 54-53. The junior varsity ended up in first place in the county tournament. Team effort could h ave been one of the reasons for success, but as Mi- chael Coates said, " There ' s no feeling like getting the winning shot; but then again, I wouldn ' t know. " Both teams agreed that one of the major keys to their success was their coach. Tony Russell said, " Coach Na- zary was a coach in the true sense of the word. His knowledge of the game and coaching ability were the key to our successful season. " Attentively looking for someone to pass to, Matt Mogan (23) teases a Gulf Breeze defender.

Enduring a season of 17 losses and only one victory chal- lenged each team member. Traci De- ment remarked, " Spirit was one of the things that kept us going for so long. " The 12-member team consisted of seven freshmen, three sophomores, one junior and one senior. The lack of upperclassmen testified to the inex- perience of the team. The only return- ing starters were Lisa Resmondo and Terri Locke. The lone victory of the season came during the County Tourna- ment. Behind the serving of Angle Nit- teberg, the team defeated Bay Min- ette 9-15, 15-2, 15-8. Nitteberg netted 1 points in a row off her serves in one match. According to Coach Shirley Helms, " Serving in that game was the best it had been ail year and they played more like a team. " Based on tournament performance, Resmondo was selected for the All-County First Team while Locke and Metta Chris- tensen were placed on the All-County Second Team. In spite of the dismal season, the team managed to keep their spirits high by making favors for each game and treating themselves to pizza par- ties. Candy McConnell said, " Al- though our season was not very re- warding, we still tried to work as a team, and we learned a lot of basic fundamentals that will help us later. " Veteran Lisa Resmondo uses a fore-arm pass to return the ball. Six years of playing gave Res- mondo the necessary experience to be voted team captain.

Despite the fact that the volleyball team lost six team members to the varsity squad, it still managed to pull out an 11-7 record. On September 16, the team, led by coach Elouise Lucas- sen, began the season by dominating Bayside, Robertsdale, Fairhope, and Daphne in the Baldwin County Tour- nament. Team members and Coach Lucassen both agreed that the most important game was the second game against the Daphne Trojans in the tournament. Daphne was down after having played the number one team. Bay Minette, and so the Lions took advantage of the situation by winning 15-1 and 15-11. Bay Minette was the only obstacle standing in the way of gaining the county champion- ship. It was not to be, though, as the girls dropped two games in a row 8-15 and 0-15. As a result, the volleyball team ended up in the second place slot. Commenting on Tigers ' tough- ness, Becky Moncrief said, " They were a real bump, set, and spike team. " Renee Fortner was the only mem- ber named to the Al l Tournament team. Special plays by Julie Harris, Moncrief, Rosetta Page, and Lori Schuize helped to carry the team throughout the tournament. Being undefeated, the basketball team was a rival for all opponents. Kicking off their winning streak, the Lions defeated Bay Minette 43-22. After rolling over the rest of their op- ponents, the team wrapped up a flaw- less season by defeating Daphne 49- 23. Metta Christensen tallied up the highest number of points in one game by scoring 35 points against Daphne. At the Baldwin County Tourna- ment on February 7, the girls met the Fairhope Pirates. Before halftime the Lions racked up a 27-4 lead. The Pi- rates had only managed to score eight points by the fourth quarter. Then as the buzzer sounded, the scoreboard showed a 45-16 win for the Lions. With their first tournament game be- hind them, the team prepared to meet Daphne on February 12 for a chance at the county title. Blowing away the opposition, they stomped Daphne 49- 23 to win the tournament and capture the county championship for the sec- ond consecutive year. Whether the choice was to partici- pate in volleyball, basketball, or both, girls used their athletic ability to knotch wins and attempt to escape defeat.

It happened, it was in flight. Shouting came from all directions. Soaring across the air, the object was scrutinized with awe. Los- ing velocity the ball came down skip- ping a bit amid " ooh ' s " and " ah ' s " from avid soccer fans. The Girls ' Varsity Soccer Team electrified fans with their dribbling, passing, and heading skills. With four years of experience behind her team, captain Tonya Cook was one of the leading scorers averaging one goal per game. Torn ligaments and pulled muscles didn ' t hinder goal keeper Lonna Herronen as the team shut out 10 out of 16 opponents. " No pain no gain, " was the only comment heard from Herronen about her season as goalie. The team ' s final record was 15-0-1. Though the girls ' team stole the spotlight, the Boys ' Varsity Soccer Team had their bright moments as well. Amid rain and freezing tempera- tures, the varsity team met the (J. M.S. Bulldogs at 6 p.m. with Kerry Flowers and Eddie Paul scoring the only two goals. As the weather calmed down, the game came to an end with a tied score of 2-2. Mark Tampary remarked, " Although it was a hard fought match the draw was an honorable score. " A broken ankle, wrist, and collar- bone were conditions that the Boys ' Junior Varsity encountered when three of their players missed most of the season due to injuries. Unlike the well-es tablished varsity teams, the ju- nior varsity team had been through two coaches before Mr. Ralph Schu- macher finished out the season. Ty Freeman and Patrick Irwin both agreed, " Coach Schumacher was the best out of the three coaches because he knows more than the others. " Whether students participated on the varsity or junior varsity teams, the skills, techniques, and team spirit acquired were put to the same use — winning.

" was just one of the many sounds heard as the Baseball and Softball Teanns batted, ran, and fielded their way through the season. An ambitious start brought the baseball team a 33-15 win over Ro- bertsdale in the hundred inning sea- son opener. However, the team ' s lack of hitting cost them the season. Coach Terry Vinson commented, " Our defense was not bad, but when you don ' t score runs, it forces the de- fense to not make many mistakes. " Against Satsuma and Fairhope, the region leaders, the Lions came up short every time. In the second game with the Pirates, the Lions held the lead in the last inning. But with Fair- hope up to bat, the ball was hit back to the pitcher. Instead of the ball be- ing thrown to first, it was thrown into right field. The Lions suffered an 11- 12 loss. Senior Roy Evans held the team ' s highest batting average at 316. The Lions came in second in the Baldwin County Tournament. " We worked hard, but we had a lot of upsets, " summed up senior Mike Rea. Capturing first place in the county tournament was the Softball team. Leah Sanders and Tonya Cook each hit a home run in the two-day tourna- ment. Throughout the season, the team practiced from 2 to 5 p.m., Mon- day through Friday. The team agreed that against McQill-Toolen it played it ' s best de- fensive game. Playing Fairhope for the second time was the Lions ' tough- est game. After being 2-6 in the sev- enth inning, the team scored five runs, winning 7-6. The game ended in a double play. Coach Shi rley Helmes summed up the season by saying, " I ' ve been real impressed overall ex- cept for a few times. We ' ve had real dedication in the players.

" Bang! Practicing after school from 3 to 4 p.m. helped to prepare the Girls ' and Boys ' Junior High Track Teams for the upcoming meets. They not only ran but also took part in field events such as shot, discus, and long jump. Skye Langston, a seventh grader, said, " The first meet was exciting and a new experience. " Langston partici- pated in the discus, the long jump, the mile, and the 880. A non-runner, D.D. Andersen, participated in discus and shotput events. Ranking third in the county meet, Andersen hurled the discus 69 feet. Her best distance, 75 feet was reached at a practice meet. Twenty-three feet put Andersen in fifth place in the county meet for shotput. The boys ' track team consisted only of runners. The boys practiced for six weeks before their first meet. They devoted three days a week to long distance running and two days a week to speed work on the track. When practice was not scheduled the boys ran two to five miles at home. Coach Gary Tucker said, " Brian San- dell is a very hard working runner. He has a lot of determination and doesn ' t like to lose. " Sandell ran the mile in 5:25 and a half mile in 2:25.

" Many golfers were considered to be top players by their coach. He num- bered the players one through five — number one being sophomore Rick Gehr, number two senior Robbie Pen- nington, third senior Trae Ward, four junior Jon Moland, and fifth junior Bill McKee. One of the biggest wins came to the golfers on February 27 in the match against Bay Minette and Bayside. Scoring a 166 the team ended up in first place.

According to Michelle Doughty, " Although our season didn ' t turn out very good, we learned a lot about the game and became bet- ter at playing. " Both teams had special players, ranked according to playing skills and experience. The girls ranked as fol- lows: Suzanne Adams, Wendy Bauer, Marilyn Ward, Michelle Doughty, and Shawn Layton. Nicole Doughty served as the team ' s first alternate. Lining up for the boys were Mark Russo, Mark Tampary, Dan Bauer, Scott Raines, Davy Thompson, and Daniel Thompson. Both teams ' seasons spoke for themselves. The boys won one out of eight matches, and the girls won one out of six. Practices were held daily during sixth period and also after school at Cedar Street Park. Both teams entered single and double matches. Giving reasons for the season ' s out- come, Mark Russo said, " All of our opponents were older and more ex- perienced. In a couple of years we ' ll be in their positions.

Tfie bu9ipe$s adtJeji fo thg cbmmuritygixiwth and of- fered after-school employirsnt to hi h school stu- dents- The year was one of im- proving. Throughout the city, con- struction boomed as both small businesses and large in- dustries discovered the attrac- tiveness of the community. As businesses discovered the community, students discov- ered the possibilities the bu- sinesses offered to them. Students became aware of the effect the growth had on the ever changing economy, all the time realizing the effect it had on them as individuals. For students, community businesses not only provided after-school employment, but also an opportunity to gain experience that would enable them to excell in the future. By supporting school fun- draising events and sponsor- ing projects to fund scholar- ships for high school seniors, the businesses became in- volved in all aspects of the student body. But in return for their sup- port of the school, businesses benefited from the students ' spending power. Students could meet their needs within the wide variety of shops and business establishments. As the community grew, students grew along with it. Together they combined to make it a year of doing more — doing it better. Students often assume greater responsibilities in community businesses than in the typical after-school job.

Suntanning and studying were often combined as students prepared for final exams. For some, the fall was the far- thest thing from their mind, but seniors became preoccupied with making plans for the fall. Students had adjusted to the campus life and discovered all it had to offer. Physical upgrading was rampant as maintenance crews began refurnishing campus buildings. United Construction Diversified, Inc. continued construction on two science rooms and laboratories at the high school and the Foley Welding Co. installed the 94 air conditioners which were purchased through the joint effort of the student body and the com- munity. Renovation began on the Mes- sick house as the Magnolia Springs School for special children planned to become part of the school campus dur- ing the fall. For sports enthusiasts, the year was truly one of doing more. The varsity football team advanced to the second round of the state play-offs and the girls ' junior high basketball team, soccer team, and softball team all captured county championships. New head coach Barry Pennington be- gan preparing his team for a gruelling 1986 football season during the prema- ture summer weather. And just as the campus advanced, students progressed along with it. Students learned about themselves and many times discovered hidden po- tential. Out of 28,000 entries, Kristen Pearcy was selected one of twelve finalists in Teen Magazine ' s Great Model Search. Dina Watley became the first young lady from Foley to be accepted to the Air Force Academy. In a year of progressing, individuals combined talents and interests into a year of doing more — all the time doing it better. V r 278 Doing More — Doing It Better ' fj ks : ---: Premature summer weather provides the perfect opportunity to catch rays while in school. For sen- ior football players Mike Rea and Kirk Barnes, sixth period became suntanning hour as underclassmen be- gan spring training. Emotions erupt after the announcement of the up- coming varsity and junior varsity cheerleading squads. An astonishing 45 young ladies tried out for squad positions on March 27. Doing More — Doing It Better 279 anited Construction Diversified, Inc. began building two science rooms and laboratories in the nnid- spring. Despite the year drawing to a close, the pro- gress continued as maintenance crews ' work en- hanced the campuses ' appearances.
