For the 1982-83 Nugget, as always,
the yearbook staff was faced with the
problem of what to use for a theme.
nlt must be original, and apply to
this particular year...what made this
year different from any other year?H
They concluded that the one major
factor which affected the entire
student body was...CONSTRUCTION! So,
with the ominous cloud of approaching
deadlines hanging over their heads,
the staff chose the theme NExpanding
As everyone who passed by the
school knew, the building was certainly
expanding. Construction crews expanded
the walls, foundations, and overall
square footage, increasing the total
capacity of the school by one third.
H'Expanding Our Horizons' easily

students, we expand and grow by
attending classes, doing homework and
communicating with our peers.n
This 1982-83 Nugget tells the story
of the growth of the building and of
the people inside.

Fashions 'I1 Fads
On the fashion end of things, the color purple
became increasingly popular with the girls, showing
up in dresses, shoes, jewelry and make-up. Friend-
ship beads were something new to Nederland, and
were seen mostly in middle level. Towards the be-
ginning of the year, leg warmers became the rage,
only to be replaced by miniskirts following the
onslaught of the valleygirl movement and warmer
Along with the widespread popularity of punk and
new wave music came dyed hair, and throughout the
year streaks of blond, pink, blue, and purple were
to be found on the heads of Nederland students.
The freshmen introduced the Virgil Ding, the
practice of saluting the bells in NHS. It was at
it's peak close to the middle of the year, and
still survives in isolated corners of the school.
And then there were the people fads: Tom
Selleck, Charles and Di and little Prince William,
Tootsie, and the Smurfs. And who can forget E.T.,
the Spielberg alien who made one movie and then
suddenly began appearing on everything from lunch
boxes to underwear?
1982-83 also brought such things as futuristic
computers, a new Star Wars movie, the Colorado
Lottery, and Chicken McNuggets courtesy of good

Jacob Bach, an exchange student from
Denmark who lived with Betsy ludwick
for his year in America. Another
student who achieved fame was Heath
Wilson, who became a member of the Jr.
Ski Patrol at Eldora.
A major event this year and every
year was the Close-Up program for
student explorations into government.
Many school activities were organized
by student council. A homecoming pep
assembly was held the afternoon before
the dance and featured introductions
of the football and volleyball teams,
homecoming royalty announcements, class fy 1- , X-at N!!

the Friday night Homecoming
Dance was a success. Colorado Light and Sound provided
the D.J. and the music, and even gave

royalty was presented with flowers and candy.
Even though Student Council had less than one month
to organize all of the Homecoming activities, they, with
the help of the classes, made the entire week of the
1982 Homecoming a successful and'memorable one. 7
What do the classes spend most of their time, money
and energy on? Why, the dances, of course! All year
long, fundraisers were held to raise money for them
and many long hours were spent planning, organizing
and arranging the many successful dances of 1982-83.
All the middle level dances were sponsored by the
middle level student council and were attended by
both 7th and 8th graders. Dances were held for
Halloween and Valentine's Day, and a Christmas Social
was held on Dec. 16th to which senior citizens and
pre-school children were invited. Towards the end of
the year, on Hay 16th, there was a very successful
roller skating party at Wheels in Boulder.
An unusual number of dances were held for the high
school. The first dance of the year, Homecoming,
took place on Oct. lst. As is traditional, the dance
was sponsored by student council Cthey had the moneyj
with each class taking care of one aspect of the dance
Cthey did the workll StuCo and the classes also put
on a Sweetheart Dance on February 11th to celebrate
Valentine's Day. Twirp, the freshman-sponsored dance
where the girls ask the guys, was held for the first
time in several years. The freshmen put a lot of
effort into the dance, which took place Dec. 3rd, and
they even had a disc-jockey from KAZY radio! The
juniors started something new when they sponsored a
Senior Recognition DinnerfDance on May 2nd. The dance
featured a barbecue at the Stage Stop and awards
presented granny-style to juniors and seniors. To
wrap up the year, the JuniorfSenior Prom was held on
May 21st in the gym. The juniors did a good job with
the decorations and the refreshments, and the band
Sleepy Hzllow provided the entertainment.
All the dances were greatly enjoyed by the middle
level and high school students, and helped make the
year exciiing, entertaining, and fun.

We've Got Tomght
Prom, the last dance of the year and
a special dance for juniors and seniors,
was the subject of a lot of bickering and
controversy. The juniors planned early
to hold prom at the Stage Stop in
Rollinsville, but they were thwarted by
first a new district policy and then by
the bar downstairs that would have been
open during the dance. Their second
choice was the new NHS student center,
but this too was opposed by the adminis-
tration because the contract for the new
area had not been finalized and so was
not covered by insurance.
Even though prom was held in the gym,
the juniors did an excellent job with the
decorations, using crepe paper to enclose
one part of the gym and create a smaller
space. They also decorated the student
center for a reception area and it was
here thai Prince Dan Bartolini, Princess
Alison Bodkin, King Max Kirsh, and Queen
Debbie Ewing were presented with flowers
and the King and Queen crowned. The band
was NSleepy Hollowu, and even though they
played a lot of fast music, they also
presented the theme song uWe've got

when students arrived at the school
in September and got their first look at
the building, they came to one unanimous
conclusion: something had changed. One
could hear comments like 'What
happened?'...uThey've destroyed our
school!n...uWhat a mess.'...nWe'll
freeze in the winter!n...and nHow do
we get in?u
The construction caused many problems
for students when they were trying to
get from here to there. The shortest
distance between two points was always
the long way around. The school could
be entered from either end, but not from
the front. The only set of stairs that
could be used was the one farthest from
the locker areas. Since the cafeteria
was uinoperativeu Cmeaning completely
leveled? students had to eat lunch in
the gymnasium for the first part of the
year. Naturally, it was also on the
opposite end of the building from the
stairs. The girl's locker room dis-
appeared during the fall sports season,
as did the weight training room and a
few of the parking spaces. The boys
found that they could only reach their
locker room by walking across the gym,
through the doors, and then back down
the hallway. The entire school, partic-
ularly the office area, was chronically
cold due to the lack of solid, snow-
stopping walls, and irritatingly noisy,
due to a plethora of construction
workers armed with saws, hammers, and
But the nnewu Nederland is one we can
all be proud of. The cafeteria has been
restored Cthough not the balcony, alas!
and new lockers and a new office area
have been added. The auditorium has
been expanded with new music rooms. The
weight training room is underneath them
now, and the girls' locker room is njust
as big as the boys'lU

Breaking Ground...taken literally,
the words mean Ucracking dirt.H Yet one
can also sense that they mean something
more. Breaking Ground, a new beginning,
a fresh start, the first step.
Since the first step in high school
towards graduation is the junior high
school, it was appropriate that this
section be devoted to the middle level.
The middle level students described
themselves as nExcellent, Choice, Neato,
and Awesome.u Of course, there may have
been other opinions in the high school,
but it must be admitted that the middle
level had indeed made a beginning: and
a good one, too. They had taken the
first major step in nBreaking Ground.n
The middle level student council was
very active in planning
activities for the middle level students.
These activities included a magazine sale
in the fall to raise money for holiday
celebrations. One of the highlights of
the year was a Christmas Party for the
senior citizens and preschool children
of the Nederland community. It featured
food donated by middle level students,
games for the kids, and
posed as Santa.

There's nothing like the sound of
music, whether it be band or choir, to
help break the tedious round of
academics in middle level.
Mr. Sam Stubbs, director of choir
and band, had a successful year in music.
The classes were larger than before, and
so contained more talent. The concerts
went smoothly and the selected pieces
were performed with a great deal of
character ibut only after many class
hours of practice.D
The choir had excellent three part
harmony: soprano, alto and tenor. The
band had seven occupied sections:
trumpet, trombone, baritone, percussion,
saxophone, clarinet and flute.
Mr. Stubbs said HThe students worked
very hard to make the music come alive.u
Treena Wiesner C'88D makes
beautiful music on her flute
for all to enjoy.

The Sevies had a lot of adjusting to
do as they entered the middle level.
Besides the normal problems of getting
used to a new building and new people,
they also had to get used to being at
the bottom of the seniority totem pole.
As the year progressed, the seventh
graders adapted to junior high school
and many of them got involved with
middle level sports and activities.
Some of the activities the seventh
graders helped organize were the
Christmas Party, the Halloween and
Valentines Day Socials, and their
Spring Picnic. These activities helped
to make their first year at Nederland
High not just nbearablen but Nfunlu
For the first semester, the seventh
graders did not have two class sponsors
as in previous years. Instead, each
middle level teacher sponsored a home
room class that was a combination of
seventh and eighth graders. By second
semester things had changed again.
Four representatives were elected from
each class to attend class meetings.
The seventh grade reps. were Pam Raymer,
Heather Wilson, Erin Kirby, and Treena
When Miss Deborah Eads was asked how
she felt about the seventh graders, she
replied, nThey are a very energetic,
bright group of kids.u

One thing about being in middle
level: you don't have to make many
tough decisions when it comes to
classes. All the time from 8:30 to
lunch time is set - seventh and eighth
graders take English, social studies,
math, and science. In the afternoons
they choose Yelectivesu to take: gym,
art, home ec., shop, or music.
Naturally, this doesn't include the
unofficial classes: teacher harassment,
rude noise,'spastic motion, and general
havoc. These are necessary to prepare

From the court to the slopes, middle level
athletes were active in both volleyball and
skiing. Outside of the classroom, Ms. Ann
Cornfield and Ms. Deborah Eads were coaches
for the youngest teams in the school.
Ms. Cornfield led 14 seventh and eighth
grade girls in diving, serving, and passing.
The volleyball team played six games, coming
very close to victory when competing with
Platt. Practicing in the elementary school
was tough, but paid off as the team showed
daily improvement and the girls were always
in high spirits.
Ms. Eads was the coach for 20 rowdy, anx-
ious and enthusiastic middle level skiers.
The team practiced right along with the high
school team at Lake Eldora Ski Resort, and
were able to receive helpful hints from some
of the experienced varsity members. Racing
in nordic and alpine events, the middle
level team competed in two regular season
meets and helped out at the Nederland meet.

tracksters to begin practicing. In

team and Ms. Deborah Eads coached
The teams had a total of 18
members, and they competed in run-

yard dash, and a Q40 relay. They
were also active in the field events
of shot put, discus, running long
jump and high jump.
The Nederland teams did well at
their six meets, usually placing in
the top five in individual events.
The meets went smoothly and both
teams really enjoyed the season.
Practices consisted of running up
to Eldora or just to the Hmile
point.n Both teams practiced to-

each other for a little competitive
practice. Practices were cold,

LOCKI , FOR CTIO
The eighth graders, naturally enough,
were eager to get out of middle level and
into the more exciting and prestigious
high school. After all, they had already
been in middle level for a whole year!
Wasn't that punishment enough? They did
their best to disrupt classes and hassle
the faculty to prove that they were
ready to become Freshmen. All in all,
they were a pretty normal class.
As was also normal in middle level,
nothing was normal. At first, instead
of class meetings there were 'home rooms
of both seventh and eighth graders, and
home room teachers took the place of
Then, instead of class
meetings, four representatives from each
class met with the student council officers
to discuss activities. The eighth grade
reps. were John Bower, Eve Kwiatowski,
Cindy Shoffner, and Jason Williams.
Since the seventh and eighth graders
were thrown together for most of the year,
there were no activities that were put on
just by eighth graders or just for eighth
graders. They worked together with the
seventh graders to put on the dances and
parties held in middle level.
The eighth graders certainly enjoyed
a very successful year, and the class of
'87 will make a welcome addition to the

One main issue for the 82-83 year
was the search for a new superintendent
for Boulder Valley. Dr. Dick Foster
was in charge of the search, and
attended a meeting to get the students

to keep the SAC up-to-date on the

Even though the administration office was
often cold, noisy, and drafty, due to the
construction, it was business as usual for the
office staff who kept Nederland High running.
The ever-optimistic Dr. Malmgren kept things well
under control during his seventh year as
principal. As head honcho, he spent his time
dealing with the major administrative problems.
Dr. Wilson, asst. principal for his fourth year,
tried, again, to reveal the mysteries of Algebra
ll. Being shoulder honcho, he attended to most
of the school discipline and all athletic events.
Counselorfor his twelfth year, Don Smith was the
main man in charge of assistance, information,
advice, and scheduling. He kept busy holding
conferences and untangling and changing schedules.
In November, Pat Ewing took over as clerkfrecep-
tionist. She was in charge of paperwork, phones,
typing memos. and deciding which lines for a late
pass were legitimate. Reports, money, marriage,
records and bookwork: those were the dominion of

fortunately, Nederland Jr.-Sr. High
was blessed with nineteen somebodies
who were ready, willing and able to
perform one of the toughest jobs in
the education system: teaching. And
with perseverence, patience and generous
doses of luck, the teachers at Nederland
made it through another successful year.
One new face joined the regular
teaching staff - Mrs. Judy Stone, a
Boulderite for many years, took over the
job of teaching Physical Education. She
also coached volleyball, and she was
certainly a welcome addition to the
Two student teachers from CU assisted
with the math classes: Mr. Jay Jacobsen
during the first semester and Mr. Bruce
Downing during the second.
Teaching is no bed of roses, as any
faculty member would tell you. Everyone
hassles the teachers and cuts them down
and tries to make their life miserable.
Do teachers get any respect? No way!
And let's face it, teaching is a hard
job. It's not easy to face thirty
squirrelly, restless middle level
students, of fifteen undiciplined
underclassmen, or just six smart-aleck
seniors, and attempt to impart upon
them your bounteous wisdom! Yet, the
teachers at Nederland do just that.
In fact, most of them do even more
than just that. Nine Nederland teachers
served as sports coaches, five were
activity advisors, and eleven were class
sponsors. Now, is that a great group of
people, or is that a great group of

called, was published weekly.
The journalism students spent long
hours and put a lot of effort into the

A DRAMATIC EXPERIE CE
What do you get when you cross a
.Memorial veteran's arade in Mark
Twain's Garden of Eden, while investi-
gating the wrong doings of the mysterious
Smedley Pewtree? You get a Night of One
Acts which is precisely what was pre-
sented in the fall production by the
Nederland High Players.
Opening the night was HMemorialU, a
play about a family's memories of their
deceased son while at a veteran's parade.
The son Billy Ncomes backn to talk with
his family and the girl he loved. The
most touching scene was when Billy
confronted his pre-occupied but loving
father and told him how much he loved
Next in the line-up was NMark Twain
in the Garden of Eden.n Mark Twain
ninterviewedu Adam and Eve about their
lives in the garden. Eve spent her time
naming all the animals Cbefore Adam had
a chancel and setting up signs all over
the garden. Sight-seers wandered in and
out during the Hinterview.u It was a
first hand view of what really happened
between Eve and The Snake from Mark
Twain's satirical point of view.
To top the evening off, nAlias Smedley
Pewtreeu for uThe Villian of Glitter
Gulchul was performed by the most
experienced actors. Goldie, the sweetest
thing this side of Vinegar City, tried to
keep up the cheer of the woeful Preacher'
Widow while society leader Constance
LaFoon kept her son Obnoxious Little
Irving happy with lollipops and tried to
prevent the evil Banker Pewtree from
taking her home. Moustache Agnes Cwho
was courageous except in a crisisl and
the Assayer Cwho rolled through the
entire play as a drunkJ suspected the
Mysterious Old Flower Woman of the wrong
doings. Rock Quarry finally arrived to
save the day but is soon found to be the
real Villian when Banker Pewtree is
revealed to be the true hero.
Instead of the traditional spring
musical, the Players performed the murder
mystery thriller nCry of the Banshee.H
The play concerned a curse which had been
placed on the Whitman family. On the
anniversary of the curse, members of this
family are mysteriously slain. Dr.
Hessler, a parapsychologist who believes
in the spirit, and the detective Griffith
who doesn't believe, try to save the
family but they are too late for Elizabeth
Whitman, and she was found with her throat
ripped open. Suspense built as everyone
became increasingly desperate to find a
way to stop the curse, and the cast
portrayed the dramatic story well. The
play developed a few technical problems
during the middle level performance, but
by opening night all the bugs were ironed
out and everything went well. A moment
of breath-taking shock came when Griffith
fired a .38 caliber at the spirit and
surprised the audience Cand the cast!J
with the authentic sound of shots.
The Nederland Troupe did very well
with all of it's productions, and was
able to put a lot of new talent on the
N S stage.

The Nederland Troupe of the Inter-
national Thespian Society underwent some
construction of it's own in 1982-83.
The troupe initiated nine new members:
Maria Reardon, Dan Maslowski, Robbie
Shoffner, John Mans, Chris Farentinos,
Lisa Flick, Cheryl Passalaqua, Mike
Keegan, and Kristi Eye. The troupe
also gained two new Honor Thespians:
Christina DiJulio and Connie Smith.
The Nederland troupe changed, rearranged
and tried new styles of production and
techniques. The change in style was in
fact a change in the type of performance
done. In the fall there were three 1-
act plays instead of one 3-act play, and
instead of the usual spring musical a
spooky suspense thriller was performed.
Thespian troupe sponsor Dorothy
Powhida felt this way about the growth
of the troupe: nI'm extremely pleased
in the growing interest in drama. The
talent of the troupe members reflected
in the fine productions. Their enthusiasm
and versatility has been recognized
throughout the community and has elevated
the status of the troupe within the
The officers for the 1982-83 production
year were President Betsy Ludwick, Vice-
President Christina DiJulio, Secretary
Connie Smith, and Treasurer Liz Jennings.
These girls led the troupe in morning
announcements, Hmystery student of the
weeku, selecting plays and showing the
troupe how to create chaos in the final
weeks of production. Long time members
such as David Mans and Glenn Pierce also
contributed their talent in many ways,
like in set building Cand destroyingl,
practical jokes, yelling at the younger
members for not Hstaying in characteru,
and getting nDotH to laugh for screamD
at their silly antics.
Many of the members agreed that being
in the Thespian troupe was hard work,
fun, a lot of work, fulfilling, plenty
of work, and well worth it.
The old saying Hall work, no playa
doesn't apply to the Thespian Society.
There, it is HALL WORK PCR PLAY!n

High school band and choir was quite
different during 82-83. Mr. Sam Stubbs,
the director of both band and choir,
was gone from Nederland for many days
during the first half of the year
because he was on the Teachers Negoti-
ations Board. On these days, the
students had to work independently.
But when Mr. Stubbs was present, the
band and choir practiced sight-reading,
worked on parts and timing, and often
got into some very in-depth discussions
with their director.
Along with the regular scheduled
concerts, the band performed at football
games and the choir sang at some of the
community events. Although the
performances were excellent, rehearsals
were tough. ult was hard with Mr.
Stubbs being gone. Subs. just don't
run class like it should be done,H said
one of the choir members. But all the
music students supported Mr. Stubbs in
his work for the Negotiations Board.
Seven band members qualified for
Honor Band and the choir participated
in the UPL Concert Choir Clinic. Mr.
Stubbs stated that nThis year the choir
had the best blend and balance of all
the choirs in the past four years.N,
That's quite a compliment!

They had come out of the geemer years
of middle level but they weren't old
enough to have the superiority of the
seniors. The freshmen, sophomores, and
juniors were at an in-between stage.

experienced many growing pains. Some

cause trouble and have fun. However,
despite the problems caused by growing
pains, they are a necessary step in
becoming an adult.
The latest additions to the high
school, the ninth graders, were
eager to begin their duties as
Freshmen. Such duties included
making loud and obnoxious noises,
annoying the teachers and keeping
the Seniors amused.
To their credit, the class of
'86 managed to pull off the Twirp
Dance for the first time in three
years. They even brought up a Disc
Jockey from KAZY for the dance.
Their major fund raiser for the
year was the Eco-Cycle.
The Freshmen were an active
bunch. Nearly 5073 of the class was
involved in sports, and they also
showed up in the plays, choir,
band, student council, and many
other activities. It was also the
Freshmen who popularized the
UVirgil Dingu, which included
saluting every time a bell rang.
The class sponsors, Mr. Walt
Hartung and Mr. James Pedersen,
felt very good about working with
the ninth graders. As Mr. Hartung
said, HI'm very proud of this
year's Freshmen. They are very
responsible kids, and I think
they're gonna make itlu

They were big, rowdie, spirited and
loyal to their class and to the school.
They were thesophomores. The class of
85 drove their point home early in the
year. The point was that thesophomores
sponsered by Ruth Hirter, and Jerry Buck
had what ittook to become a respected
class at NHS. What did they have? The
class of 85 participated thoroughly in
sports, drama, and music. Manysnpho-
mores were involved in STUCO, helping
with fund-raisers and setting the pace
for the rest of the school.
Class offecers were, Cathy Wiesner-pres-
ident, April Lally-vice president,
Raegan Bodkin-sectretary, and Dee O'Rear
treasurer. These girls had the experi-
ence and knowhow needed to maintain a
firm grip on class meetings. Tracey

e-lec'tive Cn.J: an optional course or
subject in a school curriculum.
If one is in middle level, one has
only a few electives. If one is a
Senior, on the other hand, one has a
lot of electives. Elective classes are
taken all through school, but their
number increases as graduation nears.
Many students choose electives such as
art, home ec., shop, and music. Others
choose to take electives like chemistry,
accounting, and higher mathematics.
Odd, huh? And then, of course, there
is the traditional Underwater Basket-
Weaving course offered at all schools.

The Junior class, finally
obtaining the much-coveted
status o upperclassmen, did
a good job of displaying their
school spirit. It was evident
early in the year that they
were an enthusiastic group.
The Junior class had a great
turnout for sports throughout
the year. Joe Haney was a
bright spot in the football
line-up, capturing All.League
awards for his outstanding play
on defense. During Homecoming
week, the Juniors once again let
their spirit shine by winning
the float and skit competitions.
The class officers did an
excellent job of getting the
class together and organized
some very successful fund
raisers like the copper-silver
war and ice cream sales. Class
sponsers, Don Smith and
Amy Weisbart, felt the Junior
class had matured a lot since
entering high school, and that
they had become a more Wtogetheru

It all started in the last two weeks
of summer. Before anyone had even begun
to think that school was drawing near,
the NHS football team was practicing for
the upcoming season.
A strong turnout early in the season
raised many hopes, but the numbers soon
dwindled to only a few players. Despite
the lack of players the team played
tough against every school they faced.
In the end it was a lack of size and
numbers that kept the team in the loss
column. Outstanding players for the
Panthers were Joe Haney and David Mans,
both of whom made All-League, and Greg
Sanders who led the team in tackles.
Since the team is losing only six
players due to graduation, Coaches
McGuire and Hartung expect that the
number of experianced players returning
will give them a good chance at a winning
season in 1983-84.

termination and spirit.
Over thirty girls were out for volleyball,
which is more than have been out in the
previous three years. The girls started
conditioning two weeks before school started.
There were an unusually large number of
girls out for Junior Varsity, enough to form
a C Team. The C Team occasionally played
other C Teams before the regular matches in
games refereed by the coaches. The Junior
Varsity team had a season record of .
The Varsity team finished the season U-13.

as our record shows,n said Coach Stone. HThe
things we've gained, the quality of our game

reflected in our record. Many of the teams
played a more conservative game, where we

Once again it was time to get out those
shoes and tank tops and head for the
courts - the boys basketball team was
ready to start the season.
The coaches and the players were
looking forward to a good season with
some added height and quick ball-
handlers. Despite their record of 2-13
in the regular season, the Panthers
played exceptional ball in every game.
Since they were unable to go to the
league tournament, the boys practiced
hard to prepare for district play. At
districts, the boys won their first game
against South Park, but then suffered a
depressing loss to Silver State Baptist.
Outstanding players for the boys were
Greg Sanders, who made All-League, and
Joe Haney, who was Most Valuable Player.
Coach Vordenbur had this to sa for
his players: HThey're a great bunch of
guys and I enjoyed working with them. I f
think we're going to get even better Q, f'

Much Snow Means
The ski swap started thingsqrf. Then
came dry land conditioning, and then
Cfinallyl snow and actual skiing! The
Nederland ski team, coached by Deborah
Eads and Doug Knisely, started the season
off with a lot of spirit. The team con-
sisted of 7 varsity, 22 junior varsity and
20 middle level members.
The middle level participated in two ski
meets, preparing themselves for high
school races. Outstanding members were,
John Bower, Jeanne Marler and Jennie Fowler E
The junior varsity worked very hard in
practices and showed a lot of improvement.
They also entertained the varsity on the
long bus rides by acting odd, supplying
Walkman's and falling for dumb jokes.
Eric Kingdom and Eric- Marler led the
j.v. and are the most promising skiers for
the varsity team next year.
Speaking of the varsity team, it was
made up of the experienced skiers who had
the skill and know-how to place in the top
ten at most meets. Leading in downhill
were David Mans, Betsy Ludwick, Jacob Bach,
Chris Farentinos and Darcy Wendlin. In
cross country were Christina DiJulio, and

of the necessities of the girls and boys track teams
Other important items included hacky saos, plenty of
Coach Willit's Hhealth foodu, and, as always, the
tune box! Since Mother Nature blessed Nederland with
several feet of snow, once again the track teams had
to stretch, run, hurdle and jump inside the gym for
most of the season. Nevertheless, both teams did
At the league meet, the girls placed 2nd out of 11
schools, and the boys placed 6th. The girls also did
very well at districts, taking 5th overall out of 24
schools. Some of the outstanding tracksters on the
girls team included Dee 0'Rear in the 300 meter
hurdles, Tracy Brigham in the 200 and boo meter dash,
and Betsy Ludwick in the long jump. The 800 meter
medley team consisting of Betsy Ludwick, Dee 0'Rear,
Debbie Ewing, and Tracy Brigham took 2nd at districts
which qualified them for state. There, they took 7th
getting their best time and breaking the school
record with a time of 1:58. Betsy Ludwick also
qualified for state in the high jump with a jump of
5', and she took seventh at state.
Although the boys did not do as well at districts,
David Verser and Erik Lutz did extremely well in high
jump throughout the season, and the 800 meter relay
team of David Verser, Erik Lutz, Mike Keegan, and Dan
Bartolini also did very well.
Although dealing with the harsh weather made it
difficult to keep up good spirits, bath track teams
can be proud of their accomplishments.

Athletes are crazy. Really! Who,
else would put in long hours of prac-
tice every day, risk the pain, anger
and defeat, and put all their strength
and energy into a game?!? Crazy!
Athletes are also great people.
Really! They work together as a team
or as individuals to overcome chal-
lenges, they are dedicated to success,
and they throw terrific parties!
People like that are worth a little
zaniness, aren't they?

The last year of high school is a
busy one, and it often seems that every-
thing must be done at once. College
plans must be finalized, educations
completed, and friendships confirmed.
Of course, this is also a time to annoy
elders, wreak havoc, and party to the
max! Sometimes it's hard to work all
that into one year. It's a time to put
the finishing touches on a part of one's
life and to begin looking outward to
The 1982-83 school year was long,
but full of fun, excitement, and
anticipation of that big day in June.
One o'clock in the afternoon on June
4th, 1983, to be exact!
The seniors did their best to domin-
ate the school in scholarship, extra-
curricular participation and student
leadership, and were often successful.
It meant a lot to them to be able to
show the underclassmen how to get good
grades, Cthrow wild partiesl, be good
athletes, Cannoy the teachers with
smart-aleck commentsb, and strengthen
friendships throughout the year.
They participated in many activities,
showing their expertise in sports,
music and drama. They also sponsored
a Donkey Basketball game and a pancake
breakfast for school and community
enjoyment. Mrs. Amelia Miller and Mr.
Sam Stubbs guided them through the
year, getting them out of trouble and
trying to keep their senioritis at a
minimum Csurely an impossible taskib
The last row in the parking lot
became nsenior parking.H They used it
in an interesting way, too, and the
cars were rarely seen parked according
to the painted lines.
Being the smallest class in the
school had it's disadvantages during
class calls, but the seniors were
always spirited and loud at the pep
rallies and games. They were special
enough to the school that a dinner 8
dance were given for them by the
juniors, including awards for Hbest
lookingn, Nmost athleticu, Ufunniestn,
and nbest partiern, to name a few.
They had all grown up over the
years, and as graduation got closer
they began to map out their futures,
knowing that the people remaining at
NHS were there to back them up.

SENIORITIS: It's an odd disease that
strikes most adolescents between the
ages of 16 and 18. It's early symptoms
are usually seen during the junior year,
coming with the realization nwe're
almost out!H Such symptoms include a
disinterest in school work, and interest
in ditching, and a propensity for making
out in the halls! Early in the senior
year other indicators appear: conceit
Cas the perogatives of being a senior
are enjoyedl, obnoxiousness Cespecially
towards teachers and coachesl, and
tyranny Csuch as making freshmen salute
and say, USeniors are greatlnl These
effects continue to grow worse through-
out the senior year. There is no cure.
One can only wait until these maniacs
reach the goal of their obsession -
Any lingering effects of senioritis
are usually absolved in a week of solid
partying following release from high

THE BIG DAY
At last! Thirteen years of working,
striving, and surviving finally paid off for
the 26 seniors that graduated from NHS on
The day included many firsts: the new
entrance was used for the first time, the
joyous seniors were allowed to throw their
caps in celebration, and they could keep
the caps and gowns. But many traditions
were also kept: the colors, the flowers,
the themes, smiles, and tears were all a
part of the emotionally charged atmosphere.
Valedictorian Susan Fuller and Salutatorian
Betsy Ludwick emphasized the many past and
hopeful future successes of the class, and
thanked the parents and teachers for their
help, while guest speaker Dr. Richard Kraft
spoke seriously about the downfalls of his
own generation and his hopes for theirs.
An important part of every graduation
ceremony, the processional and recessional
marches, were led by marshals Dan Bartolini
and Alison Bodkin.
lt was an exciting, joyful, sorrowful day
that will be remembered for many years to
