A Dance to Remember
by Brooke Madick
"Do you remember the 1985 Dance?"
"Yes, it was great, all of those costumes
and the decorations were fantastic!"
"I liked the music and the door-prizes."
On November 1, 1985, the Student
Council 'put on an exciting Halloween
Dance. From 7:00 to 9:00 all you could hear
was loud music and a variety of winning'
names being called out by Mr. Floyd
Hawkins, disc jockey for the evening and
giving away door prizes to lucky winners.
Some of the prizes were such things as
albums, posters and much more.
"That dance was one of a kind."
"Is this a cheerleader or Joey Morton?" Who knows?
Welcome to the 1985 Halloween Dance and the first
prize goes to..." announces Mr. Floyd Hawkins, master

The coaches of soccer team are Coach
Lloyd Hawkins, Coach Floyd Hawkins, and
Coach John Johnston. They have ,led the
varsity soccer team for the first year to the
regional title. "For only the second year in
varsity competition...is very good! remark-
ed Coach Floyd Hawkins. Mr. Hawkins
also commented, "They played their best
near the end of the year."
Though the junior varsity team didn't do
quite as well as the varsity team, Coach
Floyd Hawkins claimed, "They had a lot of
good talent, they were also young, and
needed some experience, but I think
they've learned a lot." Coach Hawkins
emphasized, "Soccer is the most physically
demanding sport. You're always moving
and there are no time-outs like football."

Watch out 88 01 mpics... Here I I
by Tracey Sterbenz
Christy I-Ienrich, atgsma1l girl with i
a large amount of courage,
ability, spirit, and strength. .
Christy may be small, but that doesn't
stop her from trying anything. She is
thirteen years old and has been taking
gymnastics for nine years. She started
taking at Claudia's and was there for four
years. After'Claudia's she started taking at
Great American Gymnastics Express and
has been there ever since.
Being a gymnast isn't as easy as many
people may think, just ask Christy!She
practices four hours each week day and six
hours on Saturday and Sunday. She goes to
competitions almost every weekend during
the winter and some of the summer.
Christy is also sore a lot from practicing as
much as she does and has to get used to
bruises and falls from trying new stunts or
from just warming up.
' Christy's goal in gymnastics is to make it
to the 1988 Olympics. She doesn't think
that she will ever quit gymnastics because
she wants to reach her goal.
Christy's favorite part of gymnastics is
floor work. When asked why she replied,
"Because I don't have to worry about
falling off of it, but I can still fall on it."
Christy thinks she may make a career
out of gymnasticsg but she isn't sure. She
says she might like to DC a coach someday.
Her mom's feelings about her
gymnastics are, "I think that what she is
doing takes a lot of courage and I as a
parent will do anything I can to help her
reach her goals. I also think that parents
should not pressure their kids: but be there
to assist them when they need you."
Christy prepares herself before perfume
ing her routine onthe 'uneven bars. g
Christy is in one of the highest gymnastics
classes she can be in for her age. She is in
Jr. Elite. There are two other girls on her
team. The Jr. Elite class usually has kids
from the age of fourteen to sixteen or
seventeen. Most girls age thirteen to
fifteen are in class one, which is three
classes below Christy.
Tons and tons of ribbons, certificates,
and trophies show-off and reward
Christy's hard work.

He Wanted to be a Race Car Driver
The team must keep up with the coach. Mr.
Brozovich believes in setting an example
and runs right along with his team.
by Betsy Wendle
He may not be the race car driver he
wanted to be, but Mr. John Brozovich
knows how to steer a good race. As coach
of the girls' cross country team he led them
to a fifth place, all around fmish at the state
cross country track meet. A
This added to his other achievements
won him the title of Coach of the Year from
the Girls Cross Country Kansas City Area
Mr. Brozovich attended Central Missouri
State University and majored in industrial
arts. He had been teaching industrial arts
and coaching cross country for ten years,
seven of which had been at the Fort Osage
When he was asked what his reaction
was to his students using the industrial
art's equipment, he replied, "I just want to
make sure none of them lose valuable
fingers and toes."
Mr. Brozovich commented, "I enjoy
watching the learning process and am glad
to see yoimg people dedicate and fulfill
their goals." He enjoys teaching industrial
arts and coaching cross country. So as you
can see, he still has excitement even though
he isn't a race car driver.

Ms. Burrows was the freshman
counselor. "As a fourth grade teacher at
Blue ,Hills I enjoyed my job very much.
Seeing the problems and troubles that the
students had while Iwas a teacher inspired
me to become a counselor."
She enjoyed the changesla counselor's
position brought and unfortunately disliked

Fashions also include swatches, pins and brooches. y
by Jenny Pemberton u u
As everyone knows, fads and fashions differ from year to year.
Well, this year's fashions differed from last year's rat tails and
This year, some of the clothes fashions included: shaker
sweaters with tanks under them and stretch pantsg stirrup pants
with oversized shirts and 'sweaters were also! Hin". Alot of the
students made a fad of wearing socks over jeans. For the guys, the
Miami Vice look was "hot". Also in fad were Air Jordans.
To give an outfit a fmal touch, some accessories were added.
Pins and other jewelry were big fads. Swatches and all different
kinds of ,watches wereiwom. And what girl could go anywhere
withouther "confetti" purse. f ' i l i . j
Admittedly, the 1986 fads were different from any other4Qyear.e
And in the future, these fashions will also be lost in time, but were
captured in the Arrowhead.
The English Publications class shows the fashions and records for the year.
I-Ia1ley's Comet Returns After 76 Years!
by Ruth Jenkins
From November, 1985 to March, 1986 Ha1ley's Comet was
visible in some parts of the world.
Edmund Halley, an English astronomer predicted in 1703
that the comet would return in 76 years. Halley's comet has
been visiting our solar system since at least 239 B.C.
This time Ha1ley's Comet disappointed many people in the
Northern Hemisphere. To observe the comet, one had to
either get upgat 5:00 in the morning fa clear cloudless morningj
or stay up until 11:00. The best place to observe the comet was
in Australia during April.
Julie Toedebusch practices looking for the comet through a
telescope outside Ms. Jeannette Erter's science room.
