Buc Week tradition unlimited
uc Week is traditionally a
time when students set No
limits in demonstrating
their school spirit. The en-
tire week is composed of fun, frivolity
and enthusiasm intended to boost
school spirit and pride. The week's
activities center around Friday, Satur-
day and Sunday with the Buc Dance,
the Oswego-Fulton football game and
the Powder Puff football game.
Buc Week began on Tuesday, October
6, 1987, with "Hat and Shades Day."
Students came to school with various
headgear and ocular paraphernalia. A
yearbook poll showed that "Hat and
Shades Day" was one of the most
popular Buc Week days, perhaps
because students can outfit
themselves to look bad, wacky or just
On Wednesday, the most popular
event of Buc Week took place: Nerd
Day. Students set no limits in dressing
in outrageous, out-of-date clothes and
ridiculous mismatches. Everyone's
favorite nerd was perennial geek
Kevin "Yosh" Sanbonmatsu. Accord-
ing to Sanbonmatsu, Nerd Day, in
addition to being just place fun, gave
him "an opportunity to portray school
spirit, which I think is lacking at OHS."
Although many students did not parti-
cipate in Nerd Day, it was one of the
funniest and most anticipated of all
Buc Week activities.
Although Raider Traitor Day was
not as popular as the other events of
Buc Week, its signifigance was not
diminished. As the rivalry in sports
between Oswego and Fulton in-
tensifies, Raider Traitor Day allows
students to turn red for a day and
become Fulton fans. Despite outward
apearances, however, most students
who participated in Raider Traitor
Day were full-blooded Oswego fans.
Blue and White day was the last
school day in Buc Week. Dressing in
school colors, students first attended
the Pep Rally at Leighton School to
cheer on our athletes. Blue and White
Day symbolized the pride Oswego High
students have for their school and
their willingness to display it.
Buc Week remained an important
part of developing school pride at OHS,
as students actively participated in
school events. Many people heve
suggested that Buc Week be expanded
to include other days such as Punk
Day, Pajama Day, Sport Day and
Reverse Day. Whatever changes are
made, it can be assured that students
will set no limits in enthusiasm and

arching Band season star-
ted in the early summer
with members practicing
on Tuesday and Thursday
evenings during July and August. The
annual band camp in August was the
culmination of the summer rehearsals
with members rehearsing all day for a
week in the scorching heat. Despite the
high temperatures, Band Camp was
dubbed a succes by Director William
Palange. By the time school opened all
that remained was to refine the music
and marching routines learned during
the summer in preparation for their
Under the direction of Drum Major
Lisa Herrald and Assistant Drum
Major Kristen Wlazlo, the Marching
Buccaneers blended the old with the
new. The program opened with New
York State of Mind from the 1982 sea-
son, featuring soloist Jinri Dumas,
followed by the swashbuckling sounds
of Seahawk from the 1983 season. Horn
soloist Andrea Parker introduced the
new with John Williams' beautiful
Luke and Leia. The band closed its
show with another John Williams
spectacular, Theme from Superman.
Soloists Bill Carnal and Keith Hinrichs
added the final touches to a specta-
cular and exciting ending. New
uniforms added the visual sparkle
which complemented the music.
The first show of the season took
place at Cicero-North Syracuse with
an intense and crowd pleasing show. In
October the band took a 12 hour bus
trip to West Virginia University in
Morgantown, West Virginia to partici-
pate in the MBA Eastern Regional
Field Band Competition. Performing
on Friday and Saturday nights, the
band entered finals on Saturday with a
second place position, and earned a
third place at the end of finals. The
band ended the season by competing in
the New York State Field Band Con-
ference Championship Show in
November. They garnered a 4th place
honor that placed them along with
some of the best bands in America.
With a successful season behind, the
next challenge facing the Marching
Bucs was participation in April 1988 in
the Orange Blossom Festival in
Orlando, Florida. Director William
Palange hoped to retain the title of
superior band that the band earned in
1984 when it competed in this national
event. KEd'itor's Note: Coverage of the

f all the clubs at Oswego
High School, one of the most

the Chess Club. "What!'?" you
ask incredulously. Yes, to those who

1986 by Mr. Thomas Altman, physics
teacher and advisor extraordinaire.
Since its humble inception, the club
has grown tremendously in size. It's
popularity can be attributed to its so-
cial functions, held about once a
month. Pizza, soda, games, plenty of
chess and good conversation make
these gatherings well worth the set-up
effort and nominal fee. Although play-

always eager to teach the game to new-

ocal music continued to
beiialajfipopular P the
ing a variety of students
who had not participated in previous
years. The reason for the increase
stemmed, in part, from the fact that
the Regent'sfAction Plan required
students classes inthe arts
and many took the path that they
could most relate to: singing.
These students, along with those
who would like to continue on in
vocal performance, make up the
Symphonic-gfchrorus and the Select
chorus, both under the direction of
Mr. Joseph Crisafulli. Each of these
groups worked hard and dilligently
during the fall months in prepara-
tion for their Winter Choral Concert
which was held on December 19 in
the Theatercfofishe Performing Arts.
This concert featured the Phil-
omelian Alumni of Oswego High and
combined with the present groups to
perform the Christmas selections of
Handels, "Messiah" The groups also
continued thetradition of caroling
during the 'Christmas Season as
they visited local nursing homes in
an effort to make the season
brighter for these people.
The members of both choral
groups also were given the oppor-
tunity to participate in an exchange
concert with 'vocal students from
Auburn High School on May 7. In
addition to the opportunities that
students had in both of these vocal
grouplsgjthere waiS,,,,ailnew group
formed called "Solid-ifGlold", which
focused primarily on the more pop-
ular "Show Choir" style and will pre-
miere at the May concert.
Mr. Crisafulli hopes. that future
years will provide diver-
sity in the types of that par-
ticipate in the program so it touches
more of the community.

which OHS instrumentalists
charted their course to suc-
cess. All of the instrumental
music organizations at OHS, Wind En-
semble, Symphonic Band, Concert
Band, Marching Band, Jazz Band and
smaller quintets and ensembles, were
busy throughout the year.
The Marching Band enjoyed success
in the fall as the other organizations
prepared for their first performances
in December. The culmination of the
fall practices for the Wind Ensemble,
Symphonic Band and Concert Band
was the Winter Concert on December
12. This was the first of many per-
formances for the concert bands and
was viewed by a capacity crowd in the
Theater for the Performing Arts.
The Wind Ensemble, under the direc-
tion of Edward Lisk, traveled to the
Ithaca School of Music in February to
put on a demonstration performance
for a music class at Ithaca. This trip
was termed a success by Mr. Lisk as it
"gave more exposure to not only the
quality of the Wind Ensemble, but to
the music program as a whole." The
students who participate in the Wind
Ensemble are the finest musicians in
the school and the state.
The Symphonic Band, under the direc-
tion of Anthony Joseph, has been busy
preparing for the Orange Blossom Fes-
tival Competition in Orlando, Florida
in April. The band is preparing num-
erous selections of contemporary lit-
erature to perform for the judges in
Florida. The musicians in the Sym-
phonic Band are all above average per-
formers and it is this quality that
allows the band to perform some of the
more difficult modern day literature
and to compete with some of the finer
bands in the country.

past years. The Concert Band, a step-

also be competing with the Symphonic
Band, Wind Ensemble, Jazz Ensemble
and Marching Band while in Florida.
The band has busily been preparing a
variety of musical selections for the
competition as well as for other local
performance such as the Spring Con-
cert and the Seniors Concert.
The Jazz Ensemble, under the direc-
tion of Anthony Joseph, again traveled
to the Civic Center in Syracuse to com-
pete in the local Jazz Festival for the
second year. The band competed
against some of the best Jazz Bands in
the state as they tried to defend their
lst place finsih of the previous year.
The band has also been preparing
everything from ballads to big band
tunes in preparation for the competi-
tion in Florida as well as for their big
concert on Memorial Day Weekend.

that the tradition of excellence started
many years ago is still being main-

score at the NYSSMA auditions which
consequently put her in the All- State

through high school by her participa-

In addition she has participated in the

the only sound to be heard
was that ofthe shush of new-

The members began to organize their

approximately 20-25 students.
The club skied in local areas includ-

One of the many campaign posters for MORP
King candidate Nirimit Goel.
26 Q Set No Limits
hroughout the spring months,
TV bombarded us with news
stories of the caucus in Iowa,
the primary in New Ham-
pshire, Super Tuesday and the atten-
dant rise and fall of such political fig-
ures as Gary Hart, Al Haig and Bruce
Babbitt. All of these tales paled, how-
ever, when stacked up against the race
for OHS Morp king.
The candidates, Nirmit Goel, Bob
"Slime" Gilmore, Darren Crovitz,
Darren Narayan, Eben Norfleet, Greg
Angelina, Eric Rosenberg and Jeff
Lints, received their nominations as
the result of a poll by the Student
Council. The top eight vote getters
were placed on the ballot for election.
Once the candidates became known
publicly, an intense election campaign
was under way for Morp king candi-
date, Nirmit Goel.
For a three week period prior to the
Morp, Nirmitmania swept the school.
The "Rice For Alli' campaign was born.
Chris Nelson, Tony Leotta and Joe
Prisco were men, figuratively speak-
ing, with a mission: the election of King
Nirmit I. Posters with the catch
phrase, "rice for all" were the primary
means used to achieve the desired elec-
tion. With the aid of the Mclntoshllr
computers in B-3 and Leottais Canon
Typestar 6 thermal printing typewri-
ter, creative posters appeared throug-
hout the building, seemingly by magic.
The people who knew Nirmit found
the exploits of the "Rice For All" camp-
aigners to be funny. By combining the
message that Nirmit should be elected
Morp king with a little humor, the pun-
sters tried to win the kingship for their

ealizing that the best way to
improve one's skills and to
develop one's talent is prac-
tice, many OHS Lacrosse
players participate in Box Lacrosse
leagues. Box Lacrosse helped many
Lacrosse players fine tune their pas-
sing and catching skills while others
improved on their overall game aware-
ness and formed a good sportmanship
attitude. In anticipation of the spring
sports season, Box Lacrosse helped
create a positive attitude for success
when interscholastic field play began.
Box Lacrosse, played on the bare
floor of a hockey rink, is a faster paced,
scaled down version of field Lacrosse.
Six players, compared to ten players in
field Lacrosse, often use a basic pass
and pick away offense and a man to
man or zone defense. All players are
allowed to roam the entire length of
the rink, with even the goalie joining
the offense. Penalties are the same as
in field Lacrosse with the addition that
checking into the boards of the hockey
rink is not permitted. Although field
Lacrosse can be a lightning fast game
with numerous goals scored in seconds,
Box Lacrosse is an overall fast paced
game. Players must always be alert
and never stop running.
During the summer of 1987, Oswego
High students formed two Lacrosse
teams which played in the Fulton Box
Lacrosse League. One team, consisting
of varsity players and exceptional
younger players, enterd the toughest
men's division, division one. Playing
Lacrosse builds skills
against teams from Oswego State, the
Fulton varsity program and several or-
ganized Lacrosse clubs such as The Os-
wego Lacrosse Club, the division one
team learned much, but had a hard
time with the pace of the game as seen
in only one win.
OsWego's second Lacrosse team in
men's division two faired much better.
Climbing to the top of their division,
the second team had a final record of 9
wins and 3 losses. The division two
team made it through the playoffs to
the championship game, but un-
In January and February, a team of
Oswego Lacrosse players joined a
league at the Fairmount Athletic Cen-
ter. Unlike the Fulton league, Fair-
mount's hockey rink had astroturf
carpet which made the game feel a bit
more like field Lacrosse. Another sim-
ilar aspect to field Lacrosse was that
the other teams were from various
Central New York high schools, which
included New York State Class A
champion, West Genesee.
Once again, Oswego did not fare well
in competition, failing to win any
games. Due to the distance to Fair-
mount which meant a time consuming
drive, it was difficult to get a good size
team to come play on any given day.
With six players in the rink at a time, a
situation of having only one or two sub-
stitutes led to fatigue and an inability
to carry an effective transition game
between offense and defense.
However, the purpose of getting

the high school teams either
because of their skill level or
because of conflicts of time, the city Re-
creation Department's basketball
leagues provided a means to play the
game in an organized, competitive set-
ting. The season was filled with ups
and downs, and all of the excitement
and rivalries that any basketball dev-
otee could have hoped for.
Colonial Rigging avenged its one
point loss in the championship game
last year by composing a talented
squad that single-handedly won this
year's championship. Jerry Dennie's
All-State Insurance, the only team to
beat Colonial during the regular

also placed second in the regular

This season saw a dominating team
in Colonial Rigging that featured a re-
lentless pressure defense. They were
only downed once and never looked
back after that defeat. Powered by cen-
ter Steve Martus and forward Mike
Rodgers they thrashed smaller teams
time and time again. Also under the
direction of virtually all the players on
the squad, Sport About found themse-
lves to be the Cinderella team by
knocking out defending champ County
Savings in the first round, although
falling short of eliminating heavily
favored Colonial Rigging.

Soccer action was dominated by Top

dreas Lebaudy, Megan Hastings and
Kristina Lenehan with their fellow
cohorts were unbeatable. In fast paced
action, Top Gun soared through its
first game and then won the champion-
ship, 3-1. Megan Hastings summed up
the team's experience, "Everyone used
their potential. We all got along
together and we had fun as we played."

A license to drive and to be free
n Social Studies we learn that
many societies have rites of pas-
sage. Teen age members of socie-
ties go through these rites as
part of the ritual of becoming an adult.
Although we have no formal ritual in
our society, there is a point in life when
we begin to have and enjoy the free-
dom and responsibility of being an
adult: a person turns sixteen and no
longer needs to walk or ride a bike, but
can instead get a driver's license, a
sign of maturity which tells the world
to watch out - because here you come.
Getting a learner7s permit is the first
hurdle in actually' learning to drive.
First you have to get your permit by
taking a written multiple choice test,
followed by the road test and finally,
you have your picture taken.
The multiple choice permit test has
to be the easiest step of getting your
license. Anyone with a basic know-
ledge of the factors with which drivers
must contend will pass. All of the ques-
tions are straight forward and based
on facts from the Motor Vehicle Dep-
artment's driving manual.
The road test is difficult for some
people, not because they don't know
how to drive because that comes with
practice, but because they get anxious
about having a stranger waiting for
them to do something wrong. However,
if one keeps his cool and relaxes, the
testing portions become rather simple
The last step for getting the license is
having your picture taken. lt is a bad
idea to take friends along when the pic-
ture is to be taken. They'll probably
make you laugh and you'll get some
sort of a weird picture for the next four
years or until you have your picture re-
taken for your night license. When the
picture is taken, you have to stand with
your feet on two footprints on the floor.
Failure to do so will lead to a picture of
half a person's face. The Motor Vehicle
Department will use these pictures, a
cause of embarassment for most
people, although it sure is funny.
The worst part of the process is the
cost - 9,817.50! However, it is the price
you have to pay to be allowed to drive.
You really do have more freedom

and provided beautiful love scenes the
next. The Running Man thrilled
anyone who enjoyed gore. Finally, The
Living Daylights was a James Bond
movie that had that famous Bond mys-

Of course, for every good movie there
was a bad movie. Fitting the bill was
"The Big Easy" which was at the
Cinema in October. Whenever you go to
the movies, you take a chance paying
34.00 because you really can't tell if
you'll like a movie until you see it. No
matter what people say, and never
mind Siskel and Ebert, this fact always
holds true. The only way you can be
assured of getting your money's worth
is by going to a "G" rated movie. How-

around often and "R" rated movies are
probably the most popular anyway.
Fortunately, any movie can be made
fun with friends.
No matter how good a movie is, it will
be so much better if friends watch it

lass rings add meaning to school experience
ur high school years. Sup-
posedly the best years of our
lives, right? Most students
desire to have something to
ymbolize these years, their memories
nd their proud moments. The class
ing has been a tradition for high
chool and college students, and the
urchase of them continues today.
The loveliest and most endearing
emories of high school are enveloped
'iii the certain quaint charm of class
rings. Sentimental value, the true gem
within class rings, creates a special
warmth of glad memories. Stored
within the beauty of these rings, our
high school memories will never lose
their luster or fade away. Class rings
unify the members of specific graduat-
ing classes as well as all students who
attended the same high school - a un-
ique community is formed.
Reminding us of the past, we can for-
ever look back into the memories our

Only Julie Byrne can manage to shine as brightly as her class
class rings hold. Friends, special hap-
penings and the school itself can pos-
sibly slip from our memories as we
come in contact with new places and
people. It's a fact that it's difficult to
remember everything. Life is dynamic
which really leaves us little time to
think about the past.
The class ring has engraved in it
many things. In the 1960's, all rings
were the same. Now, there are many
designs to choose from. The typical
ring has the year of graduation and the
school mascot. The more elaborate and
modern ring lets you have your first
name, year of graduation and a symbol
of your favorite activity. Gold and
silver rings cost a few hundred dollars
while trillium rings cost less than 25100.
Always in style, everyone with a
class ring is "cool", They're fun to have
because you cement your position as
part of the group. You can even show
off your class ring. But most import-
antly, class rings help to overcome the
limitations of a human being's memory

Sales result in profits
he most profitable and, per-
haps, the easiest way for stu-
dent organizations to raise
money was through sales.
From flowers to raffles to personals,
many clubs, groups or classes sold
whatever they felt the student body
would buy. Sales work for the fund
raising organization and give the
students of OHS something to look for-
ward to every year.
Flower sales during Buc Week,
Christmas, St. Valentine's Day and St.
Patrick's Day, gave everyone the
chance to say "Hi!" to a friend. For the
romantics, flowers made a gift to bring
tears to the eyes of their loved ones.
The Buccanear Bulletin carnation
sale during Buc Week sold over 800
flowers at a price of 31.00 each. Or-
ganized by Julie Zaryski as her Jour-
nalism semester project, the entire
newspaper staff was called into action
to deal with what turned out to be a
monstrous undertaking. However, the
task of getting the flowers to the
students was accomplished and many
smiling faces floated about the cor-
ridors of OHS that day.
Raffles, like the Senior Class sterio
raffle helped raise funds to reduce the
individual's cost of the Senior Trip.
The Baseball team raffled a stereo to
help pay for a new batting cage. The
Football team had a 50-50 raffle to
raise money for their end of the season
banquet. According to Offensive Gaurd
John DeSantis, "If it wasn't for our
raffle, we could never have afforded to
even consider a banquet."
The band went all out in its effort to
raise money for its Spring trip to
Florida. The band parents raffled off a
36,000 Dodge Omni. With every student
in the instrumental music program el-
igible to go on the trip, band people
scampered to think up creative things
to sell. Crates of citrus fruit, from 38.00
to 325.00, were sold by Marching Bucs.
36.00 Hormel pepperonis were special
treats for people who contributed to
the cause of helping our beloved band
people reach Florida. As a personal
aside, I bought one of the 36.00 pepper-
onis and boy, it was good!
As long as the messages weren't
vulgar or crude, personals were prin-
ted in the Valentine's Day Buccaneafr
Bulletin. With gossip raging, hidden
secrets became common knowledge.
Few were immune from the messages
with over 430 personals sold at 31.00
each. While letting the students of OHS
say what was on their minds,everyone
had a fun loving Valentine's Day.
Also worth mentioning were the al-
ways popular Gummi Bears. The Ger-
man Club held exclusive rights to
Gummi Bear sales. Led by Frau Bur-
khardt and German Club President
Vikki Hutchison, the rest of the German
Club sold these candies imported from
Germany at an incredible rate. The
Gummi Bears were sold to raise money
for an upcoming trip to Germany.

students had access to this machine.

The Student Council, mainly
through the efforts of Chris Nelson,
Jahan Islami, and Mr. Mirabito arran-
ged for a Coca-Cola soda machine to be
placed in service at OHS on February

profits from the soda machine for its
treasury and to fund a scholarship.
Both Coke and Pepsi were app-
roached and similar contracts were ob-

tained, however Pepsi later upped its
prices. It was decided that a Coca-Cola
machine would be used as a trial, to
find out how much
of a profit would
be made. Cans of
soda at 5095 would
make up for the
original cost of a
case of soda and
maintenace to the
machine. As well,
would provide the
with an additional
3a per can.
If all proves to go well, a second Coke
machine will be installed to comple-
ment the one in operation. If Pepsi
would lower its price to a competitive
level, a Pepsi machine might be in-
stalled, creating a competitive atmos-
phere with Coke.
Mr. Maxon was incredibly helpful in
dealing with the soda companies and
encouraged the Student Council. Mr.
Maxon's help, is the reason the soda
machines and the soda itself were ob-
tained at low prices.

Oswego High School's cafeteria is a
fantastic wonderland of new creations
and golden oldies. Although the cafet-
eria certainly has its problems, there
are positive aspects, albeit often

people think highly of our cafeteria,

For lunch, it could be said that the
cafeteria is a fine place, but let's all be

OHS computers multiply
any computer related opportunities have be-
come available to students because of a dra-
matic increase in the number of computers at
OHS. Access to a better equipped micro compu-
ter lab was the most noticeable improvement in computer
instruction for students. The micro computer lab expanded
to accomodate new Apple IIEQ9 and Macintosh? computers.
Students were able to sign up to work on computer related
class assignments orjust to have fun while discovering the
computer's capabilities. Along with the micro-computer lab,
the new OHS Career Center in the library used computers to
present various computer programs concerning career pos-
sibilities and college previews on laser disks.
Besides individual opportunities, courses such as Com-
puter Basic and Computer Pascal provided a set curriculum
where students could learn not only what computers can do,
but also why they do it. Various courses, including Year-
book, Journalism, Computer Aided Design, Dataprocessing,
Wordprocessing, Business Mathematics and Communica-
tion Systems all required the use of computers. Computers
played an integral part in the make up of these courses,
since the students used computers as the means to complete
their work. In addition, many courses, including the science

Seniors sound off on SAT's
he Scholastic Aptitude Test is
probably the most well-known
test taken by high school stu-
dents across the nation. Prac-
tically every student, depending on
college choice, is required to take the
six section, three hour exam, making it
perhaps the most feared test given in
high school. Lately, however, the test
has come under fire for several rea-
sons. For one, it is said that the test
does not show academic promise in a
student. One may obtain a score of 1550
Cout of a maximum possible 1600J on
the SAT while holding an average in
school that is just passing because of a
lack of self-discipline. Likewise, the
diligent worker who is not necessarily
a "genius" could very well end up with
a low score. For another, there are edu-
cators who feel that the test is racially,
sexually, and even regionally biased.
The basis for this accusation is that the
verbal section contains some words
which betray a bias toward students
from middle and upper class homes.
To capture what O.H.S. students felt
about the SAT, 60 seniors were sur-
veyed prior to the November admini-
stration. The results showed that the
students felt that as long as the exam
was given it would be important to
them. However, if students could
change the test in any way, they would
try. At the time of the poll, most of the
seniors had previouly written the
exam at least once or twice. When
asked how long they spent preparing
for the SAT, the most common re-
sponses were either not at all, one
week, or one month. At the extreme,
8'Zn of the students answered three
months, 7 'Za one day, and one hesitant
student admitted to studying for a

year or more. After learning about the
possible bias of the SAT, roughly half
of those surveyed still felt that it was a
fair measure of one's intelligence. The
remaining half was either sure that
the SAT was an unfair test of academic
ability or they had no opinion. Stu-
dents came down harder on it when
more than half placed the SAT in the
biased catagory. Whatever support
students had for the exam disappeared
when they were asked whether or not
they would support a measure to estab-
lish the SAT as a requirement for grad-
uation. The SAT still remains an im-
portant factor in college acceptances.
For now students will have to continue
to subject themselves to the stress

Paradox measures O.H. . political sentiment
uring last year's mayoral election, students were
polled on their feelings and knowledge of contem-
porary politics. When they were asked to identify
which political party Ronald Reagan belonged to,
a hefty 93W responded with Republican, the correct answer.
Unfortunately, O.H.S. students' grades in politics went
downhill from there. It was obvious that most students did
not seem interested injoining or affiliating themselves with
a political party while attending school. Out of those who did
acknowledge themselves in association with a party, Re-
publicans outnumbered Democrats by nearly two to one.
This reflected the general trend of upstate New Yorkers to
identify with the GOP.
In early fall, Presidential candidates were entering and
dropping out of the race faster than people could keep track.
A poll proved that students here at O.H.S. were just as lost
as the rest of the nation concerning the revolving door can-
didacies. When asked to select candidates for President and
Vice-President in 1988, aside from the most popular re-
sponse of "Who is running?", people chose George Bush ,
Jesse Jackson, Gary Hart, Jack Kemp , Mario Cuomo, Oliver
North, and the ever popular Alf. For the influential office of
Vice-President, O.H.S. students selected many of the same
people, this time, however, Oliver North came first, followed
by Jesse Jackson, Walter Mondale, and Traci Buske. These
were just a few of the choices, not far down the list were
Michael Jackson and Gumby. As the poll showed, OHS stu-
dents would put just about anyone up for the office.
Closer to home there was a more exciting election taking
place. The Mayoral race of the city of Oswego was empha-
sized by students throughout the school in the weeks before
the November 3 election. Early on, there was a clear cut ma-
jority in the students' minds for Mike Canale. But as the
campaign dragged on, unscientific polls taken by the Palla-
dium Times, indicated that John Sullivan and Ralph Paul-
dine were the frontrunners. At the school, posters for the
mayoral candidates suddenly appeared in the library, on
walls, and even on cars. Among the slogans that people wore
were Bill Shannon's, "I like Spike," which was quite pop-
ular. However, the candidates did more than to just send
their advertisements around the school. They held a 'fpublic
forum" in the Theatre of the Performing Arts in mid-Oc-
tober. Included in the program were John Sullivan, Ralph
Pauldine, and Bill Shannon. Since it provided students with
a notion of what each individual candidate stood for, both
English and Social Studies classes were invited to attend.
Unfortunately, the morning was not on the pacific side.
When two of the candidates became involved in an argu-
ment which stifled the progress and intent of the forum, it
did indeed seem that the debate was more like a stage per-
formance. On the whole, students enjoyed the mounting ex-
citement of the forum along with the other elements of the
election. As a concluding activity, students participated in a
mock election. As a foreshadowing of events to come, John
Sullivan won the student vote, followed by Canale, Pauldine
and Shannon. On the night of November 3, 1987, all stress
was put to rest when John Sullivan was declared the winner
of the election and the next Mayor of the City of Oswegojby

A new wave of high tech calculators

Although these workers of mathemati-

these calculators offer was incredible.
The man behind the outbreak of cal-

Nirmit's calculator first appeared dur-
ing the 1986-87 school year and Nirmit
considered it to be one of his most
prized possessions. Nirmit felt that
these machines help to conserve pre-

THE CALCULATOR! -
Nirmit's senior year was spent filling
out college applications and trying to
stop people from bending the back of
the calculator in two. This hideous act
supposedly hurt the wires.
The benefits of these calculators far
outweighed any disadvantage from
not memorizing mathematical form-
ulae since most of the work calculators
perform is busy work. Instead of losing
time figuring out cosines of angles or
logs, a good calculator can easily and
speedily compute whatever informa-
tion is needed. Any good math student
should already understand the con-
cepts involved in any mathematical
problem. Sam Mele said that she
would die without a calculator." Many
teachers of advanced Math
at OHS encouraged the use of
calculators at least part time, and
some Math teachers required calcu-
lators for use in class and homework.
In addition to carrying out basic
mathematical functions, calculators
were programmable with a certain
amount of memory built in, and the op-
erator could input anything that would
fit. If the calculator lacked a key for a

vement Tests, financial aid app-
lications, recommendations and the
college applications themselves are
cause for a potential fit of hysteria
when one considers them. However,
the first thing to remember is stay
calm! Relax and take everything one
step at a time. If you balance your time
so that you do well on the tests, your
parents will let you live to tell about it:
When completing forms, tests and app-
lications I felt distraught, enraged,
lethargic, wretched, dejected, tormen-
ted and apprehensive. However, when
I look at the ludicrous nature of the
situation, I feel exhiliarated, fervent,
joyful and hallucinatory because I am
happy to be going to college and realize
that all the barriers are just tests.
year. College bound students should
realize that the best time to start to
look for a college is in theirjunior year.
After the schools received my sixty-
plus post cards, I received a huge quan-
tity of catalogs and applications from
various schools of varying quality,
from Princeton to Johns Hopkins to
SUNY-New Paltz. Each post card only
required a 14a stamp and the time to
fill it out. If a student puts forth an ef-
fort, the amount of material upon
which to base a decision is amazing,
not to mention free.
After sorting out all the schools
which lacked something, it became evi-
dent to me that I had a stack of ten
schools I wanted to go to. Then, after
seeing the schools and examining app-
lication requirements, I narrowed my
choices down to a final four, ever
though I still had backups.
My final four were Penn State, Pitt
Syracuse and Clarkson. The narrowing
down of these choices was far from an
easy accomplishment. Many colleges
looked good and fulfilled all the stand-
ards I set, but when I actually visited
and talked to the people at these
places, I only then learned what many
of these colleges were actually like.
The University of Rochester was
appealing to me from its catalogue, but
I found it lacking when seen first.hand.
However, many of my friends found U
of R to be satisfactory.
Second, there is basic information
that you should find out before you
consider any college. The most impor-
tant factor is whether the college oi
your choice has the major you want to
pursue. This includes the full range of
disciplines. For example, even though
a school may have an engineering pro-
gram, the program usually will not
cover the full range of majors because
of the various disciplines within en-
The University of Rochester had a
limited engineering program for my
needs. At a cost of5B17,000 per academic
year, I had to say, "No way." This was
the most expensive tuition outside of
Ivy League that I came across. West
Virginia University has the widest en-
gineering offerings while only costing
36,500 per year. The best offering I
found was Pitt which came in with ex-
cellent facilities, programs and tea-
chers for 511,000 each year.
Moreover concerning basic informa-
tion, the environment of the college is
exceptionally important. Pen-
nsylvania State University's main
campus at University Park has
something some campuses do not have,
grass and a tree here and there. The
University of Pittsburgh is the com-
plete opposite of Penn State. Pitt is
The quality of facilities, teachers and
other students are all important fac-
tors. Likewise, access to home is
something to be considered heavily
and to be taken seriously. You never
know when you'll need help from your
family or someone you know.
Third, it's very important to apply
early in your senior year, something I
50 4 Know no limits
wish I had done and know that my
friends have anguished over. Many un-
iversities accepted applications for the
fall term after September 15 of our
senior year. Instead of doing the smart
thing, my friends and I let three
months slip by and in general, waited a
month before an application was due.
It really limits your opportunities
when you delay without good reason.
Programs fill up. People across the
country are taking your spot. Penn
State made its first admission cut Nov-
ember 30, but the chance to get accep-
ted was much better in September
when the programs were empty be-
cause there was less competition. Pitt's
and Clarkson's deadlines were Jan-
uary 15 and Syracuse's was February
1. This is an important date to check
when considering a college.
If you are a borderline candidate for
admission at any college, you have
time to employ your backups if you get
rejected. West Virginia replies within
three weeks of receiving an applica-
tion. This means that if you took all
your tests in yourjunior year and app-
lied first thing when you entered
school as a senior, you would know if
you had a place to go to by the beginn-
ing of October. What a relief!
The only thing that stopped me was
the essay. If you've never heard about
the essay, do not get worried. When I
saw Pitt's question that asked, "In part
one, discuss an event which had a
major impact on your life and why. In
part two, discuss an activity or interest
you enjoy, outside of academics, which
might give the Admissions Committee
a clearer picture of you, personally," I
said, "Oh my!" I put off writing the
essay forever because I made myself
believe that I had more pressing mat-
ters to deal with. My essay turned out
to be only 700 words, but I was unable
to break myself away from socializing
with Jennifer Powers to write it for
Many institutions do not even re-
quire an essay. Therefore, there is no
reason for delaying the submission of
an application. However, at the other
extreme, some of the Ivy League
schools require a couple of essays. I
was able to submit my Syracuse essay
as my Clarkson essay after filling in
the appropriate blank with the app-
ropriate school name. This was be-
cause Clarkson's essay was optional
and left you free to write on just about
anything you wanted to tell about.
Penn State didn't even require an
essay at all so I didn't send one because
you should send only what the admis-

Some schools, such as Villanova, the
University of Rochester and Cornell
have part one and part two app-
lications - a bummer. You have to
submit part one with general informa-
tion and the application fee before you
even get to see the questions on part
two. This is a means of finding out who
is really interested in attending their
schools. Both Susan Funk and I had
part ones for Villanova, but we were

reports are really annoying because
when you take the exams, you send
your scores to four colleges, but then
you change your mind. You then have
to fill out additional score report cards
with a 35.00 fee per report at least one
month before you want a college to re-
ceive your scores.

lications that required a teacher re-
commendation, just Mr. Patridge's, so
I was lucky. However, I had to laugh
when I saw my friends scurrying about
the building trying to find teachers to
whom they have not talked since they
were freshmen. Students become des-
perate because they try to find a tea-
cher who can both write and who
knows them. After observing my
friends, I can honestly say that finding
a teacher who is nice enough to write a
good recommendation is hard. Never-
theless, if you provide some pertinent
biographical information, then there
should be no problems. There are
students who are in fear of asking a
teacher for anything, but they just
have to force themselves.
The last little items are typing the
applications and the application fees.
Many aplications say "Print or type,"
but typed applications look so much
better to bleary eyed admissions offi-
cers who have just looked at 57 app-
lications before getting to yours. Any
advantage you can get betters your ch-
ance for admission, especially an app-
lication with an essay where a typed
paper is easier to read and looks snazy.
Application fees that I ran into ran-
ged from 345.00 at the University of
Rochester and Cornell University to
310.00 at West Virginia. These fees are
nonrefundable which means that the
colleges get to keep the money you
send them. Most people will not want to
waste so much money by applying to
lots of schools, so you should pick the
schools that you want to try to get into
wisely. I paid 325.00 or 330.00 on aver-
age. You should apply to a few schools
to be safe in case you get rejected, but
be wise and do not waste your money
by applying to the University of Day-
tona or Embry-Riddle Aeronautical
In conclusion, the only other thing I

each incorrect answer and two points
for each answer left unanswered.
Thus, a score of sixty could be earned
by just leaving all the answers blank,
but there would be no way to advance

for Winning the competition. By an-

Sports is one of OHS's most essential
activities. For many, it is a way of
stretching physical limitations to grea-
ter levels. Students participate in
sports for a variety of reasons, and at
Oswego, the options are numerous.
Students can strengthen their coor-
dination and eye-hand skills through
such sports as golf, bowling, baseball,
softball, and diving. Here, they work on
form and practice their precision in
reaching their maximum potential.
Cardio-vascular improvement is im-
portant in many school sports. Such
sports as track, cross-country, and
swimming, call for physical conditon-
ing beyond most. It is imperative for
these competitors to consistently
reach new goals of strength and

All other sports work on a variety of
skills and qualities that athletes must

Johnson cautioned that
the weight room is for more
than those sports that re-

fered countless combina-
tions for building muscle for
all athletes. The Hydrofit-

Johnson tried to, "tailor a
program to fit the sport."
For example, when the
swim team captain, Sam
Mele, came in she used the
Universal and Hydrofitness
machines, and did many
repetitions, according to
Johnson. This increased her
muscular endurance. On
the other hand, such a
workout would not supply

Buske with the bulk he
wanted. He needed to uti-

use heavy weights with low

useful against opponents

Besides the building or
toning of muscle, the use of

for preventing injuries. By
strengthening tendons and

decreased the chance of

thrill of the season.
Late season losses hurt
the Bucs. First, in the final
game of the regular season,

game that could have

they defeated the same Liv-

them their final loss, 3-2.

Wallace to say, "We knew we

One of Oswego's most
thrilling games was its

Scoring three times in one
game was a big accomplish-
ment, considering the War-

scored on one time all sea-

the Lady Bucs.
A definite low point of the
season was the final game

pulled our act together at
the end, but it was a little
too late." As for next year,

dicted a very good season.
"This season was one of re-
building the team to an ex-
perienced group of players.
Next year, the team should
be very strong in all posi-

in the stroke events.
The team was a close knit

to accomplish something
that had not been done in

prove that that was no fluke,
the next week the Bucs visi-

crowd, bowing to F-M, 21-0,

Back came the Bucs with a
trouncing of their arch-rival
Fulton, 46-6, to bring Buc
Weekend to a stunning
climax. The Bucs would roll
off three more wins over ES-
M, Mount Pleasant, and a
tough Whitesboro team.
The year's biggest dis-
appointment came in the
last league game. A snow-
covered Leighton Field was
the site where a Buccaneer
win could boost the squad to
the Dome, Central New
York Football's Holy Land.
All that was needed was a
win over undefeated New
Hartford. The weather hin-

powered passing attack,
causing four interceptions,
three of which were re-
turned for touchdowns, in a
42-20 disappointment. Able
to recover from the loss the,
the Bucs finished their sea-
son at home with a narrow
victory over Auburn.
The team was strong in all
aspects. School records were
set in points scored, over all

were well represented on
the All-league teams with 15

how coach Ron Ahart descri-

of only four freshman foot-
ball teams to go undefeated
in the last 20 years.
A strong emphasis was
put on a team attitude this
year, rather than on indi-
viduals. They started 20 out
of 24 players on the offense
and defense. The coach also
cited discipline, hard work,
desire, and teamwork as fac-
tors in the team's success.
The biggest thrill of the
season came when the
gridders defeated a pre-
viously unbeaten Bal-
dwinsville team. However, it
was the third week of the

at the Ilion tournament

Varsity cagers impress and surprise
oming off a dis-
87 year with only
four wins, the
Boys' Varsity basketball
team surprised many by
posting a much improved 8-
12 record and qualifying for
a sectional berth. The squad
compensated for a lack of
height by taking advantage
of the new three-point shot
rule and by playing with an
unequalled amount of
hustle and determination.
Fortified by the strong play
of Jason Wallace at the for-
ward position and a fleet-
footed corps of jump-shot
artists, the Bucs were able
to gain a foothold in the
tough OHSL-North league.
The OHS cagers had no
official captains, but were
instead led by the outstand-
ing seniors on the team:
Jason Wallace, Bob Van-
Alstyne, Andy Clary, Jahan
Islami, and Rick Pollard.
Several school records were
broken during the year, in-
cluding foul shots CJason

and hustle. No doubt about
it," he said.
The three-point goal be-
came a working part of the
hoopsters' offense, as ace
shooters Andy Clary and
Bob Gilmore repeatedly
kept Oswego close in many
games. Clary led the league
in that category with 36,
and Gilmore finished with
32 baskets from three-point
range. In addition to the all-
around hustle of players
such as Wallace and Islami,
the Bucs had a strong and
dependable bench. Dan
Connelly, Victor Martin,
Rob Ball, Jeff Krakowka,
Duane Buske, and Trevor
Crovitz did not start often,
but were valuable threats
in any tough game situ-
Facing several discourag-
ing early defeats, the Bucs
were spurred on by a dom-
inant performance at the
Tournament, which the
team swept in two games.
Although the bigger teams
in the league such as C-NS
and Liverpool outsized
them, the OHS cagers were
able to play well against
most any opponent. Coach
Farden lists an exciting,
last-second win against Au-
burn as one of the high-
points of the season.
Finishing seventh in the
league, the Buc hoopsters
surprised their critics by
making the sectionals.
Though they lost to West
Genesee in their first post-
season match, their re-
markable play and hustle
gained them respect both at
home and away. "We had
team chemistry," says
Jahan Islami." "It was all
there this year."
The determined charac-
ter of the team will surely
continue next year, as
standout returnees Victor
Martin and Rob Ball lead
the OHS squad in "setting
no limits" on the courtyby

Girls' Varsity Volleyball
team finished a tough sea-

cord. This tied them with
F-M for third place in the
Section III Class A league
with a 13-5 record. Liver-
pool and West Genesee cap-
tured first and second place.
Coming into the 1987-88
season with a very inex-
perienced varsity squad
proved to be no hindrance to
the team's success. With six
players moving up from the
JV team, which had an ex-
cellent 17-1 record during
the 1986-87 season, Coach
Helen Kessler had much
talent to work with. Even
with the limited varsity ex-

potential and talent made

According to Coach Kess-
ler, two factors that contri-
buted to the team's success
were being able to play the
floor well and having two
good setters. Two returning
seniors, Karryn Dennie and
Megan Hastings, took
strong leadership roles in
helping the team develop its
skills. Kessler went on to
comment that the playing
of the whole team is what
made the season so success-
ful. "We were weaker at the
net this year, but we made
up for that with aggressive
floor play," commented the
coach. Along with this Kess-

The volleyball season had
its ups and downs for the
team. A definite low was los-
ing to West Genesee in the
semi-finals of the Sectional
tournament, ending the
Bucs' chance of meeting
Liverpool in the champion-
ship game, and ending the
season. West Genesee
seemed to be the only ob-
stacle for the team. In three
matches against West Gen-
esee, Oswego couldn't come
out with a victory. Other
lowpoints were losing to
and Auburn after earlier
Many high points made
the season an enjoyable
one. By starting off the sea-
son with a 6-0 league record,
the girls showed their det-
ermination to be a strong
league contender. The most
memorable game of the sea-
son was the Bucs' second
meeting against Liverpool.
In front of a large home
crowd, Oswego beat the
number one team in two
games. Previously, Live-
rpool had narrowly beaten
the Lady Bucs in three
games, 15-13, 15-17, 15-17.
After receiving uncalled for
remarks from the Liverpool
coach, the Lady Bucs were
determined to beat the
Warrior team the second
time around. With a near
perfect match, Liverpool
fell the the Bucs, 16-14, and
15-8. Every aspect of the
game - bumping, spiking,
setting, blocking, and ser-
ving - was carried out flaw-
lessly by the Bucs. With
hard work and determina-
tion, Liverpool never had a
Other high points were
the early season wins
against such talented
teams as Fayetteville-
Manlius, Rome, and East
Syracuse-Minoa. Also, two
victories over rival Fulton
were, as always, a pleasure.
New school volleyball re-
cords were also established
by this year's squad. Megan
Hastings established two
new set records: most per
game 1233 and most per
match 1521. Maureen
Coughlin set two new spiking
records, with most per game
1135, and most per match 1235.
Amy Feck set two new dump
records with 12 in one game
and 20 in one match. Kelly
Sheffield tied for the most
blocks per game - four.
Making the All-league
team this year was Megan
Hastings. Karryn Dennie
and Maureen Coughlin both
made the honorable mention
list. Along with this,
Hastings and Dennie were
selected as the Palladium-
Times Co-Athletes of the
Week in December for their
leading roles as setters for
the varsity team.
Next year looks very
bright for the girls' varsity
volleyball team. Upcoming
seniors Denise Clark, Sandy
Nettles, Kelly Sheffield, and

for the 1987-88 season. With
an 18-0 league record, Os-

the Section III Class A
league. This marked the first
time a JV volleyball team
from Oswego has gone un-

When asked to pick specific
factors that attributed to the
team's overall record, Coach
Mirabito identified three:
athletic ability, hard work at

from the Middle School. "The
Freshmen came from the
eighth grade team with ex-
cellent skills. They played
like an experienced team
even though the team consis-

just three Sophomores,"

A remarkable achieve-
ment also to note is that out

of 23 matches is a major ac-
complishment for any vol-
According to Coach Mir-
abito, Sophomore tri-
captains Cathy Palmitesso,
Aimee Campbell, and
Teresa Fontana did an ex-
cellent job at leading the
team. "Last year, we were
the followers of the older
Sophomores and we learned
alot. This year we became
the leaders of the Fresh-
men," commented Fontana.
Freshman Tracy La-
Plante saw the season as
very productive. "We all im-
proved a lot, so next year we
should do just as good.
Everyone received a lot of
playing time," she said.

tenders Tim Lundy and Bill
Snyder for goal deterring.
The team sported a 12-7-1
record, with a 7-5 league re-
cord, good enough for third
place. Second-team All-
leaguer Roman was pleased
with the team's success.
"It's the best record we've
had since I've played," said
the three-year veteran of
the squad. However, Junior
Joe Egan, a second-year
member, felt that the
were "relatively the same
as last year."
The team did accomplish
some things to be proud of,
though. They skated away
with a 4-3 overtime victory
against powerhouse Ithaca.
The skaters also captured
the Lake Placid Tourna-

ment and climbed to sev-
enth in the state ranking
polls. However the season
was dimmed with such set-
backs as a loss to Fulton,
giving the rival their only
victory of the season, a one

that kept the Bucs from
capturing a second place
league finish, and a season-
ending loss in the sectionals

the MVP award in the Lake

reset his points-scored re-
cord with 55 points, break-
ing last year's mark by
three points. Roman set a
new mark for most goals
scored in a season, with 26,
followed closely by Mantaro
with 24 goals and 31 assists.
Roman and Owens each
garnered 23 assists apiece,
while Snyder maintained
an 89? save percentage.

Brothers and sisters work
elp is often
gained and per-
siblings participate in the
same sports. They learn
together through sports to
become both better athletes
and better people.
Darren and Trevor
Crovitz learned to play soc-
cer in England, where it is
played nine out of twelve
months. "English kids are
bred on the game. My ad-
venture of playing football
with my British peers en-
abled my skills to increase in
sync," says Darren.
Darren's four year record
supports this contention.
Trevor also made varsity
and looks forward to an-
other year on the squad.
Since they played on the
same team throughout the
year, there were many op-
portunities to encourage
each other. They are com-
petitive but are very sup-
portive also. Darren has
been coaching Trevor ever
since his little brother
joined the sport. This year,
Darren led the OHS team in
scoring and has set several
goals for his little brother to
follow. Trevor is not envious
of his older brother's im-
pressive marks, but instead
looks to them with great en-
thusiasm and hopes to erase
them with his own.
After school, in their
backyard, Megan and John
Hastings spent hours prac-
ticing together. This not
only reinforced their soccer
skills but their sibling re-
lationship as well.
Megan began playing soc-
cer at age nine. She and
John participated in the
same youth program. This
provided some early com-
petition for the youngsters.
A third member of the
family, Sara, began soccer
when she saw how much her
older brother and sister
were enjoying the sport. She
says it is hard to live up to
the expectations that she
feels are held for her be-
cause of the accomplish-
ments of John and Megan.
She will have to work hard,
but she says that there is
"no serious rivalry," among
her and her two older
siblings, but more of a "fun
teasing type." Their re-
lationship does not cause
conflicts as would be expec-
ted from three siblings in
the same sport, but instead
helps them as they practice
together and exchange help-
ful tips and ideas on the
sport. Megan laughed as she
said of John, "None of his
advice has ever helped, but
my teachings have made
him what he is today."
A members of the Varsity
Swim teams, Alan and Kim
Shenefiel have both been
driven to their physical
boundaries to excel in a
sport which they both love.
Kim says she has always
loved swimming and it was a
great opportunity to sup-
port the OHS team and keep
in shape. She started at
about six months of age and
has been enjoying the sport
competitively as well as
leisurely ever since.
"In swimming, as in any
sport, you have to take crit-
icism. Other people notice
your mistakes more frequ-
ently than you. If you use
their advice in a positive
manner, you will un-
doubtedly improve, not only
as a swimmer, but also as a
person." says Kim.
She and her brother work
together as a team and
make constructive com-
ments on each other's per-
forance. Their love for the
sport has been great motiva-
tion for both of them. They
have also exchanged advice
which has helped improve

man. Since then he has had
to work especially hard to
compete with his other

since developed the physical
and strategic toughness to
keep up with the varsity
team. "I feel that I am more
of a strategic thinker," says
Rahul. "My finesse shots

Rahul says that they have
both benefitted from each

They both can play each

Underclassmen are the future
seniors. They are the ones who will rep-
resent the school, and try to make it a
better place to learn. Because the un-
derclassmen are the largest section of
the school population, they have more
of an opportuntity to be noticed for
their best achievements in academics,
sports, and other interests they may
The underclassmen depend on each
other for support in every way possi-
ble, and without each other's help,
their success would be more difficult to

grow, they learn the ways and values
of life. They have the chance to become
more acdemically aware, and to ex-

As the freshmen enter the school,
they sometimes have mixed feelings
about being the new people in the
school. Freshmen not only are un-
aware of how to act, but they are also
oblivious to what is expected of them.
Through hard work, and constant mo-
tivation, they will be able to master the
ways of the school.
The sophomores usually feel relieved
from the pressure of being a freshman.
Although they are not yet upperclass-
men, they are considered a bit more
mature than previously. Even though
they still have two more years to grow,
that one year they spent being a fresh-
man prepared them for what is to
Being a junior means opportunity
for new experiences, both academic
and social. Juniors, although some-
times unaware of what they Want, are
expected to set goals for their lives
both in and out of school. The juniors
will do whatever is necessary to
achieve their expectations, and get
"beyond the limits" in trying to accom-
plish them. When the goals have all
been reached, and expectations met,
they are still underclassmen and
everyone, but them, knows it.
Underclassmen make up the largest
and undoubtedly most significant part
of the school. Without their support,
and understanding the importance of
this school would be greatly dimin-

eing a freshmen is a new, frightening, confusing
and exciting experience for all. Since this is
their first year in the High School, many go
through changes trying to adjust to new ways,
new people and new places. However, after a while every-
thing starts to fit into place, and everyone gets a chance to
prove himself to others.
The first few weeks of High School usually seem to be the
hardest for most freshmen. Not only do they have trouble
finding and getting to their classes, but they are not used
to the way things are run. A typical reaction to the initial
freshman experience came from Jean Collier, who said, "I
was confused at first, but after about a week I knew what I
was doing." When asked what his biggest problem in adj u-
sting to freshman life was, Scott Regan stated, "Trying to
figure out my schedule!"
104 9 Below The Limits
The freshmen year is something to look back on, and re-
member for always. Looking back, Senior Lisa Santore
thought "It's not half as bad as you expect it to be. If you
can master the first week, you've got it made. To me it was
the best time of my life. It gave me a chance to grow and
love." Like most of the memories you make, these will be
fond ones. You will reflect on them later and cherish them.
This year, the freshmen plan on doing many things in
order to raise money for their senior experience. Some of
the events planned so far are a pizza pool party, a dance,
and, in order to provide some immediate reward to those
who put forth the effort to make the freshman year suc-
cessful, a trip to Darien Lake. The freshmen are hoping
that their efforts will allow them to enjoy an exclusive vac-
ation to celebrate their last year in High School.
Throughout the year, no matter if successful or not, the
freshmen have learned a great deal. While at the same time
acquiring a well needed education, they have experienced
a part of life that will stay with them forever. These are the
times they will look back on, and remember with pride.
Over the next three years, these freshmen will grow and
learn to become our future seniorsjby Aimee Carter

to set an example for the freshmen and

Being a Junior means being at the top ofthe Underclass-
men and it brings a certain amount of prestige along with a
great deal of pressure and responsibility. The Junior Prom
and the Junior Variety Show are maj or social events of the
Junior Class. In opposition are academic responsibilities:
college choices, SAT's, Regents, and drugs and alcohol.
"The Junior year brings a great deal of stress," according
to Junior Class Treasurer Denise Clark. While the acad-
emic year itself is difficult, there is more pressure with
SAT'S, Regents, and college. Other students agree that
along with the prestige involved with being a Junior comes
the academic and personal pressure of getting wiser.v
128 Q Set No Limits
"The Junior year is also a fun year," said Jennifer Byrd,
"Academically, it's harder, but things like the Junior Prom
and Junior Variety Show make it worthwhile." According
to Barbie Verdoliva, "The Prom and the Junior Variety
Show is Csicl a fun learning experience for everyone. How-
ever there's a lot of hard Work involved. Even more this
year because they are Within a week of each other. Hope-
fully it will be a success and make many memories.
The Junior Class also sponsored the Annual Food Drive,
created to help the needy people everywhere. "The food
drive was a good idea, but it doesn't seem to be a success.
Not many people are donating things. But it is for a worth-
while cause. Hopefully in the future it will be better," said

Youth Court serves needs

Class of '89
he Class of 1989 is the first
class to be faced with the Re-
gents Action Plan. Intened to
strengthen high school grad-
lates, its conception coincided with a
growing public belief that graduates
vere not as well educated as they
should be. According to Mr. Carpenter,
luidance chairman, "the Regents Ac-
,ion Plan not only effects graduation
'equirements, but competency tests
or non-Regents classes as well." As a
'esult, more students will face more
state examinations than in the past.
Some of the requirement changes in-
clude a fourth year of social studies,
Lplit between Economics and Particip-
contends with Regents Plan
ation in Government, two years of sci-
ence, two years of Math, a year of art or
music, and three years of a foreign lan-
guage. Oswego High had already adop-
ted some ofthese requirements prior to
the Regents' action. There is also a pro-
vision for two majors, or an extension
of a single major, and a five unit major
in English or social studies.
Negative aspects of the Regents Ac-
tion Plan exist as well. One such dis-
advantage is that there is less of an op-
portunity to take electives. "Students
have very little time to take electives
after they have fulfilled the require-
ments, even if they take an eighth
period class," according to Mr. Carpen-
ter. Now they must take about eigh-
teen classes. Another disadvantage is
that students who barely met require-
ments before, might not meet them
now. There is definitely more academic
pressure than before.
According to Junior Jennifer Bor-
onkay, "I Wish we could take more
classes of our choice, instead of being
required to take courses which do not
interest us and in some cases don't cor-
respond with future plans"
It is too soon to determine if the Re-
gents Action Plan is beneficial or detri-
mental to the average student. We will
have to wait and seejby Keri Anderson

Teachers break down barriers, erected by
their students, every day when they devise
new and unique ways to teach their
classes. Interesting discussion topics,
movies that correlate with and support the
subject matter, and new ways to cover a
new area all mark teaching.
Creativity was found in every depart-
ment of Oswego High School. In Spanish
classes, teachers assigned gQue Pasa? or
"What's Happenin?": five sentences to be
read aloud in class, allowing students to
discuss everyday occurances in Spanish so
that they learned about fellow students as
well as the intricacies of the language. In
the Humanities program, teachers
planned cultural exercises, an archaeologi-
cal dig, a trip to Canada's Shakespeare fes-
tival, and exposures to folk music and
dance forms. Mr. Altman taught his
students about lasers and allowed them to
create holograms .
Outside the classroom, OHS faculty
members strove to break their own
barriers. Many were involved in furthering
their education. Mr. Brumstead worked on
his Master's degree in Fishery Biology
while Ms. Rapp received a second Master's
degree in English. Ms. Jhun took a sabbati-
cal leave during the second semester to
prepare to teach English as a Second
Language next year. Mr. Caldwell, left
OHS in January to finish his Educational
Administration courses in preparation for
4 K 1
the assistant principal position he hopes to
fill in September 1988.
Other teachers were involved in a wide
variety of sporting events. All of our physi-
cal education instructors coached school
sport teams throughout the year. Mr.
Dewey led his varsity football team to a
winning season this past year. Mr. Frawley
was a soccer referee for the OHSL and Mr.
Bernreuther coached third and fourth
grade soccer as well as minor league
hockey. A few teachers participated in
sports. Mrs. Bonacorsi, Ms. Fragale, Ms.
Clarenbach, and Mr. Mirabito all played
city league softball. Ms. Hallagan, a
competitive racer for several years, placed
in the Pan Am trials in the Lightning class
division last year, and skied the full 31
miles of the Tug Hill Tourathon.
Besides being teachers and participants
in various sports, some of our staff were
able to maintain another job. Mrs. Pirillo
worked for Ontario Services for Education-
al and Career Communication. Both Mr.
Palange and Mr. Joseph were.played
professionally. Mr. Frawley, Mr. Harmony
and Mr. Symons all prepared income tax
returns during tax season.
In the remaining pages of this section,
you will be able to see how these teachers
worked to break barriers both in and out of
the classroom. You may be in for some spe-
cial surprisesjby Kim Shenehel
Faculty Q 143
Old attendance habits change
en the School Board
created the new attend-
ance policy in August
1986, many teachers and
students felt that it would not work.
It required students to be in class
88011 of the time to receive credit for
that class. This meant that a student
could not miss more than 22 days for
a full year course, 11 days for a half
year. The missed time included all
legal excuses as well as the illegal
ones. Many felt this would create
problems during the peak cold and
flu season, and with Seniors who
wanted to visit more than the
allotted one college visitation, but
Mr. Maxon gave his word that he
would review each case separately
when determining whether a stu-
dent should receive credit in the
coursefsj in question after missing
11 or 22 days.
Problems began to develop with
the system in 1986 with teachers
being required to send notices home
to parents when their child missed
more than 6 days of classes. Over the
past summer, the school installed a
computer system to monitor the
attendance for all classes during the
day. This created even more prob-
lems when it was discovered
students were being called down and
questioned about their whereabouts
a month earlier. "There are def-
initely problems with the system.
They should have gotten all the bugs
out ofthe system before they started
making changes. Once they do I
think it will be a definite asset to our
school." said Ms. Graf.
Faculty members aren't the only
ones that felt this way. "The policy
keeps kids in class, but the punish-
ment is too harsh on the good
students that happen to get sick. If
they have no problem in making up
the work, they shouldn't lose the
credit for the class." said Junior
Many doubts about the policy
were cast aside when the school
began to break attendance barriors
in January of 1987 with 9466 of the
school's population attending class
throughout the month. This record
was nearly four percentage points
higher than the highest average be-
fore that. With the start of the cur-
rent school year, we passed the Sep-
tember 1986 mark of 9396 with a new
record of 96fZa and new records for
October and November with marks
of 9592: and 94.2fZn, respectivelyjby

McCaul defeats nature
t was a cold day last
October, when most
students and faculty
members were en-
joying the relative tranqui-
lity of Oswego, that Jim
McCaul joined over 25,000
crazed runners to run the
New York City Marathon.
McCaul had been involved
with the Marathon as an
official for five or six years
prior to his first entrance
as a runner this past Fall.
"I've always been an avid
runner, and running the
race was a main goal of
mine," says McCaul.
Many students, when
told of McCaul's run,
thought he was joking. "I
didn't believe it. I didn't
think he could do it!" said
Sophomore Ram Mahajan.
Others, mainly his track
team members, were tot-
ally behind him. "I was
happy for him. He was fin-
Catalone. "A lot of my
friends were positive and
gave me the support I nee-
ded. While I was running
the race, there were people
five or six deep along the
whole route." said McCaul.
When millions of sports
fans world-wide were
speculating on the time it
would take the winner to
finish, McCaul was only in-
terested in finishing. "My
original goal was to finish
the first half, but after I
crossed the first bridge, I
decided I was going to run
the whole thing."
When the race was over,
and everyone who would
finish had finished, McCaul
was number 17,555 of
21,244. "I expected it to be a
lot harder, mentally. I
knew it would be hard
physically because I wasn't
as in-shape as I had hoped

and he was determined to
finish," said Junior '

Cheryl Irwin for all of her
dedication to the students
and to their activities.
Rarely is there a teacher who be-
comes as involved as she. Ms. Irwin
has given up her own time through
the years to chaperone dances, to be a
cheerleading coach and to be a sopho-
more class advisor. Ms. Irwin is the
kind of teacher a student looks up to
and respects. She is everything to
students, including a friend. Today it
is difficult to have a relationship with
a teacher, but Ms. Irwin breaks the
barrier between the student and the
teacher and makes even personal
problems easy to discuss. Ms. Irwin is
there for the students both during
Irwin earns dedication
and after school.
Ms. Irwin teaches home economics,
a class which includes instruction on
clothes, parenting, and food.
She makes her classes fun and inter-
esting for all the students. Her only
bad habit, however, is "testing" all
the food her classes make. So, watch
out for her ever-present sweet tooth!
Besides doing so much with school
functions, Ms. Irwin also has a very
active social life. She enjoys camping,
hiking, and visiting the mountains
with her friends. As is apparent, Ms.
Irwin travels quite frequently.
A very big change in Ms. Irwin's
life will soon occur with the arrival of
her daughter, whom she is adopting
through courts in India. She has
named her baby Amanda Beth and is
very excited about becoming a
mother. One thing Ms. Irwin stresses
in life is a close-knit family relation-
ship. She believes that this provides
the basis for a good life, and encour-
ages others to create this sort of
togetherness with their families. Her
family.supports her all the way with
Amanda, and Ms. Irwin finds no
shortages of offers for babysitting!
Not enough good things can be said
about Ms. Irwin and her humanita-
rian efforts. She is truly an outstand-
ing person with a warm heart. Our
thanks for her involvement can
never be fully extended, but as a
token of our appreciation, we dedi-
cate our hard work and effort in pre-
paring this yearbook to Ms. Irwin and
all of her achievements. Thanks!

heryl Irwin is one of the
many teachers doing inter-
esting things with her life,
this year she's adopting a
child. "I've always wanted to adopt a
child and I'm getting to the stage
where if I don't do it now, I never
will." said the 31 year old Home Eco-
For several months Irwin re-
searched different adoption agencies
across the nation. She discovered
that the waiting list for a single
parent to adopt a white child was six
to seven years. It was then that she
decided to adopt a foreign child.
The agency Irwin chose is located
in Georgia. Through the agency, she
was able to choose from a variety of
countries throughout the world from
which to receive a child. When the
final decision was made, it was for an
Indian child. "I felt that an Indian
child would be better accepted in Os-
wego than Ca childb from any other
country," stated Irwin.
Amanda Beth arrived in the U.S. in
February in the company of nine
other babies and a paid escort. Ac-
cording to Miss Irwin, the children
must be over seven months old so
that the change in pressure would
not kill them in the flight over.
When asked whether or not the new
addition would affect her lifestyle,
Irwin said, "I haven't done anything
in the past two or three years where I
couldn't either take the baby with me
or find a baby sitter." Irwin credits
family support in helping her make
her decision to adopt. "My mother
and aunt have really helped give me
the support I needed," said Irwin.
The general concensus among
those who know Miss Irwin has been
to support her in her efforts, to rally
behind her as well, and to wish her
and Amanda all the luck in the

As the school year came to an end, we
found our seniors "reaching higher" in
their goals. We looked on to the future
to find our dreams and expectations
become reality. We strove for the
success that everyone someday hoped
to achieve. But the future can not
begin without a past. As our graduat-
ing class looked back to our high school
years we relived certin memories
which could never be forgotten:
lthe only freshman class to be told
we could fly to the Bahamas for our
lthe only sophomore class to send
black carnations to people We disliked,
lthe only junior class to win a Pow-
der Puff football game,
lthe only junior class to go into debt

lThe only junior class to have an
edited Varity Show for only one nite.
Last, but certainly not least, is our
senior year, possibly the greatest year
in anyone's life. We were -
lthe first senior class to have an
lthe first senior class to lose 20'Zn of

Seniors participate in numerous activities
he Class of '88, known for its
intense school spirit, proved
that when it comes to active
participation in school activi-
ties it could not be beat.
The various activities seniors parti-
cipated in certainly had a wide range of
variety. Because of the large number
of girls who played Powder Puff foot-
ball, the girls who are now seniors were
able to dominate the game in 1986 and
in 1987. The Seniors believed they also
won because of their hilarious and

in OHS was always evident. During
Buc Week, at least one-third of the
Seniors participated in the daily activi-
S. Tripp, C. Morman, G. Taylor and C. Judd parti-
cipate in the Buc Week Parade
Every year when the class elections
were held, the Class of '88 always had
many candidates. The class usually el-
ected different officers every year,
generating a new set of views and ideas
as it went to different advisors. This
promoted growth as a class as many of
its members were able to function
within the group, instead of merely
going along for the ride.
Fund raisers were an important part
of every senior's agenda. A stereo
raffle and a spaghetti dinner were the
high-lights of the fund raising activi-
ties. The funds that were raised helped
defray the cost ofthe 1988 senior trip to
New York City, where the Class of 1988
had the chance to explore the sights
and sounds of the city. Experiences
ranged from a Broadway musical to

n Tuesday, November 23,
1987, the OHS Senior class
along with the faculty part-
icipated in the lst annual
Senior Day. Early that morning Sen-
iors gathered for a small breakfast
buffet which then was followed by
comedy skits. The actors who per-
formed for the students had previously
been seen many times at the Ren-
aissance Fair in Sterling, N.Y. The en-

took the place of Mrs. Morley summed
the experience up in one word, "Awe-

pressed the desire to have a Senior Day
every year, not only for the fun but to
give students an idea ofwhat their tea-
chers must put up with as well. Mr
Runeari collected favorable responses
from many teachers who felt that the
day could easily be deemed a success.
Runeari himself beleived that the day
went very smooth without any
hangups. It provided a laugh for both

he hopes to be an outstanding competit-

as a swimmer he has been preparing
himself for the future. "I like to work ten

this attitude Eric plans to go far.
Behind every achievement there are
those who help contribute to the suc-

his mother for always being there and
being very supportive. Some of his suc-
cess also belongs to his brother Damon
who he was "always trying to outdo

Most of all, Eric thanks his friends
who helped him through the rough
times, pushed him further and cheered
him on. One friend in particular has
been most inspiring: "My friendship
with Brandy Nettles has always made
me work harder. She is very encourag-
ing, but also very competitive. In prac-
tice she makes me work twice as hard. "
Will he ever give up working harder
than most students? "The dedication

Seniors Seek Employment
enior students were asked this
fall about their employment.
The Paradox discovered be-
fore long that out of 100
randomly selected students 45 were
employed either full or part time.
Students were caught in practically
every low paying job known to man-
kind. Among the most popular places
to Work were grocery and department
stores, including Price Chopper, P8zC,
Jamesway, Fay's Drugs, and Super
Duper. Fast food restaurants were also
filled to a significant degree by these
senior workers. By mid-January the
entire night shift at Burger King had
become student workers. Mc Donalds,
Friendly's, Arby's, Ponderosa, and, of
course, Burger King become known as
the most popular fast food restaurants
for student workers. In addition to re-
tail sales outlets, other places to work
that seemed to draw students were
areas that benefited the community.
The Oswego Hospital, nursing homes,
the college, and the city were major
employers in the non-profit sector.
Together, the members of the senior
class employed in the area made a sign-
ificant impact upon the business com-
Some students found that working
and attending school at the same time
was extremely challenging. According
to Janelle Preman, "It is difficult to
balance the two, but it is easier if you
think of your job as fun." Other
studentsyvere not nearly as optimistic,
since they had no other choice but to
work. Several explained that they
worked for one purpose only, and that
was to gain money for college. Finally
there were those like Tony Leotta who
landed themselves high paying
summer construction jobs that kept
them rich enough all year to afford
items such as the latest technological
camera with the works. Whatever the
reasons for employment, most
students showed enjoyment toward
their jobs. Most of the frustration
caused by work vs. school conflicts was
dissipated by their paycheckjby Dwayne

Seniors driven crazy!
t will invariably happen sooner
or later. Parents dread it. Teen-
agers love it. It's inspired by a
sudden and exasperating need
for freedom and a carefree feeling ofin-
dependence. It's that nerve-tingling
knowledge of self-control and deter-
mined destiny! Yes! It's thatmfirst car!
By the 12th grade most students
have obtained a driver's license and
have gained a measureable amount of
experience behind the wheel. Natur-
ally, their thoughts turn to actually
owning a vehicle.
What is the Udrivingv force behind
this sudden desire? Most students feel
the need is for an independence from
their parents. Tony Leotta, car-owner,
says, "freedom of movement. That's it.
Going somewhere when and how you
want." Others agree. "Dates" claims
junior John Belt, "I don't want to have
to depend on parents all the time."
Although some students receive cars
as gifts, most save and buy second
hand vehicles. Payments, insurance
and fees, however, can impart a heavy
toll on the finances, and many seniors
have chosen to wait before purchasing
that first car.
During this year, several OHS stu-
dents have had unpleaseant experi-
ences with their cars. Both Nick
Canale and Jason Mantaro "rolled"
their machines: fortunately, Canale's
bruised wrist was the only injury.
Senior standouts Dick Owens and
Mark Diment literally set no limits on
the roads, as they tested the enforce-
ment of the local posted speed. At any
rate, most car-owning seniors.seem to
avoid accidents and the police, choos-
ing a less thrilling driving experience.
Despite the many seniors at OHS, only
a small minority own their own ve-
hicles. For the rest of us poor souls,
cruisin' the boulevard in our own set of
wheels instead of in the family 'wagon

Five seniors from O.H.S. were chosen
for this honor over the year. They took
part in many school and community ac-
tivities, and demonstrated leadership,
strong character and maturity in a
variety of situations. Chosen were
John MacDonald, Megan Hastings,
Tony Leotta, Janelle Preman, and
John MacDonald was active in the
student council, served as a class
officer and was president of the Nat-
ional Honor Society. He was marked as
an exemplary student and as a person
who brings more than his physical self
to a task.
Megan Hastings participated on the
Varsity soccer team, held a class office
and worked with the student council in
past years. In each of these activities
Megan met the demands of time and
sacrifice required for success. For her
selfless sense of commitment she was
often commended by students and tea-
Tony Leotta, chosen in January, was
actively involved in school activities as
a member of the student council, Var-
sity Lacrosse squad, and Paradox

the book completed on schedule.
By maintaining a part time job at
Fay's Drugs, President of the class of
1988, editor of the senior staff of the

other activities, Janelle Preman
earned the award for February.
Christopher Nelson, an active part-

ceive the honor in February. In addi-
tion, Chris worked nearly the equiva-
lent of a full-time week at Price
Chopper where his leadership abilities
netted him a promotion to the front
office. Both Nelson and Preman found
themselves in high pressure positions
where they were often required to
direct their fellow students in a variety
of activities. Both were generally suc-
cessful in their efforts.
These students showed a special
quality of getting involved and excel-
ling in what they did. The awards were
given in hope that others may also get
involved and share their talents to

A taste of Roma at

the Senior class conducted its annual fun-
draiser. Many students volunteered their time
and effort during the evening to prepare and
serve the dinner to more than 100 guests. Before the
main course was served, a salad bar was offered , fol-
lowed by the ever popular sherbet for dessert. Mr
Runeari's "Very well", says it all concerning how the
the evening proceeded.
The ease with which the evening preceded was due in
part to master chef Steve Maurtus and his ever faithful
assistant Val Beckstead. All of those that attended the
dinner were obliged to eat as much as they could. How-

hardy diners that NutraSystem had an operation

ing. Rhonda King was busy keeping the hot water hot
and the cold water separate from the hot. Kim Shene-
fiel kept a particularly well organized fresh salad bar.

cut carrots, when she exclaimed, "People have to eat
these." And lastly, who could forget Eben Norfleet, the

Jason Wallace Sz his truck
o say the least, Jason Wallace
is a very active guy. He has
held down a full course load
during his senior year and
played three varsity sports.
A popular person who emcee'd the
Variety Show in his junior year, most
students can recognize him by his full
growth of beard and his muscular
stature. One of Jason's most prized
possessions, however, is not any sports
or extra-curricular award. It is his leg-
Most upperclassmen, if not the entire
student body, have heard of Wallace's
supervehicle. Jason is modest about
neither his truck's features nor its
speed and power. "It's one ofa kind. It's
great!", he claims. "The Truck" itself is
a black 1978 GMC Sierra Grande pick-
up which Jason has owned for about 2
years and affectionately calls "Black
Magic." When not loudly and eagerly
detailing one of his truck's amazing
feats Cfor instance, cruisin' down
Bridge St. with 22 people on board...J,
Jason constantly and laboriously
keeps his vehicle clean and washed.
Although he admits to a little rust on
the body fthe truck's, that isl, Wallace
is quick to point out the custom bucket
seats, spotless interior, and tremen-
dous horse-power engine. "It'll beat
anything in town, and it's got class!" he
proclaims, and not many doubt it.
What does the OHS student populace
think about "The Truck?" "He talks
about it so much, he probably sleeps
with it", says Junior Victor Martin. Ac-
cording to Senior Andres Lebaudy,
Jason Wallace takes a break from a more than
Wallace "lives for his truck." If these
testamonials seem far-fetched to you,
then you haven't met Jason Wallace.
Many compare his pride and love for
his truck to a father's pride for his son.
Students have even wondered if
J ason's preoccupation with his vehicle
has interfered with his love-life. On the
contrary, he maintains that his dates
love his mean machine. In a serious!
light, however, Jason does not believe
that his truck is an obsession. "It's the
greatest thing, but I don't go that far"
When Jason talks about his truck, he
does so in a voice full of pride and em-
otion. It is this devotion to his vehicle
which deserves. respect, for it is rare
that we encounter anyone who devotes
this much energy and vitality to a pos-
Whether we set no limits on the high-
way, in the classroom, or on the playin
field, Jason and his truck can serve a

988 Marks the year of the first graduating class to be born in the 1970's.
Several changes have occured since that decade began, among them,
are the names of newborn males and females. It is obvious that names
change over periods of time. If one takes the time to observe this, it is
evident that men in their thirties have names such as Robert, Michael, James,
and John. Similarly men ten years younger are commonly found with these
same names along with David. For women in their thirties, you might find
Linda, Mary, Patricia, and Susan several times over. When one glances at
women in their twenties the names Mary, Deborah, Karen, and Susan are re-
vealed. The popular names are evident in our class: Kim, Mike, Lisa, Jennifer.
How many of these do you know? We will probably look back thirty years from
now and wonder what happened to the good old names when we see the names of
the future generation. VWth names like Brittany and Brandon in style now, it is
impossible to even begin to predict what the future will Sl1OW.Qby Dwayne Narayan

Tongue-in-cheek View of corridor nomads
cc eniors!" Everyone
seems to ask, "What do
we do with them?" They
have more time on their
hands than a homocidal maniac ser-
ving 17 consecutive life sentences at
Attica. How many times have you seen
one of those seniors walk through the
halls in the middle ofthe day looking as
though he owned the place? They are
constantly looking for a place to go.
CBelieve me, many teachers would just
love to tell them where to go, but that is
besides the point.D
The first place that comes to mind
when one looks for a place for seniors to
spend their leisure time is the library.
Let's be real here. How many seniors
actually find themselves in the library
without giving Ms. Tyner a coronary?
After the library, the next place that
they can go to relax is the cafeteria, but
that option is darkened every lunch
period when every inconsiderate un-
derclassman in the school storms the
place looking for food. It is, however,
the only place that serves refresh-

ments. Moving on, the corridors seem
like a relaxing area to spend extra time
during the school day. There are some
advantages here in that it provides one
of the few places outside of classrooms
where you can actually get a glimpse of
the outside world. It also allows them
to read something that they almost
never even look at...the monitors.
Speaking of monitors, brings us to
our next problem. The hall monitors,
who try to keep track of seniors, just
won't leave passers-by and those just
enjoying their leisure time alone. They
almost always ask, "Where are you sup-
posed to be?" But, let's be reasonable.
If they had a place to go then they
would probably be there.
That completes the circle and brings
us to our starting point. It seems as
though we've accomplished nothing.
Needless to say, seniors with abundant
time will continue to roam the building
like Biblical nomads. Look on the
bright side, anything beats four con-
secutive study halls.Qby Dwayne Narayan

198 4 Reaching Higher
James T. Griffin
Frank J. Ruggio
What a time we've had!
or many of us our stay is over at O.H.S., and the
times we will remember will probably not just
include the activities at the school. This year
was full of events from around the world.
In the Middle East there was turmoil, along with the
fight over Aparthied in South Africa. The United States,
under the leadership of President Ronald Reagan tried to
stay neutral in these areas while maintianing the atitude
that we will not be known as a weak nation. We have kept
our presence in other areas in the world by sending aid to
the Contras in Central America and our naval support to
the unstable Persian Gulf, even as revolutionary forces
seemed on the verge of overwhelming the cautious U.S.
approach in Panama and elsewhere in the world.
The world was not all warlike this past year. The 15th
Winter Olympic Games were held in Calgary, Alberta. The
U.S. athletes took two golds, in speed skating and figure
skating. Over all, our team did not enjoy their best
Olympics in history with the Russians and Germans
again dominating most of the events.
In world politics, the U.S. and Russia continued to have
summits and struck many deals, including a plan to pull
short range nuclear missles out of Europe.
Nationally, it was a year of scandals and chaos. With
President Reagan serving his last term as President, the
race for the position has been fierce. Gary Hart had his
campaign destroyed when it was found that he had an
extra-marital affair. He dropped out of the race in May,
only to return in the fall, saying, "Let the people decide!"
This new campaign did not help his reputation so he
dropped out of the race for good after losing by a large
margin in the first few primaries. The scandal of George
Bush's involvement in the Contra arms deal seemed not
to hurt his compaign. By mid-March he appeared to have
the Republican nomination locked up.
On the economic scene, the U.S. experienced a roller-
coaster ride for most of the year. The Dow-Jones In-
dustrial Stock Average reached its highest point and ex-
perienced its biggest crash all within a few months. This
unpredictable market lead economists to predict sluggish
consumer spending and higher unemployment. The only
problem was - no one bothered to tell the consumers!
The sports world also had its problems. The National
Football League CNFLJ, had a players strike in the middle
of the year over the subject of free agency. This strike las-
ted for three weeks C2 gamesj until the players gave up
and returned to play. The Washington Redskins went on
to win the Super Bowl, defeating the Denver Broncos by a
score of 44-10. This win kept the League Trophy in the
NFC East division for the third year in a row. fContimted,

TOP Television evangelists Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker said farewell to
the PTL ministry in March. Bakker resigned after confessing to a sexual
encounter with a young woman. Tammy Bakker bowed out ofthe broadcasts
to undergo treatment for drug dependency.
B0'l'I'0M The Senate rejected President Reagan's nomination of Judge
Robert H. Bork to the Supreme Court by a 58-42 vote, ending a long, con-
tentious debate over ajudge alternately portrayed as a brilliantjurist and a
Qwhitney Houston, left, along with Madonna, Paul Simon and Michael
Jackson were some of the top entertainers of the year.

There is "No Limit" to
ver the year O.H.S. students have noticed
many changes in the City of Oswego. ,
Last fall the Ames Plaza opened along with
Arby's and the Fashion Bug. Students also
saw the ground break for such businesses as Red Lob-
ster, Dunk'in Donuts, Taco Bell, and the new Fay's.
These new places offered new opportunities for OHS
teens and their parents to spend their money and op-
ened new areas of employment.
The Common Council of Oswego also planned for
change. With the completion of the Westside water
front new plans for the east side were annouced. The
front would include a linear park, viewing stations, a
fishermen's pier and a boat landing.
The Federal government also began construction on
a new post office located on West First Streetjust below
the Utica Street bridge. The building should be comple-
ted late in August of 1988.
All the citizens of Oswego saw the election of our new
mayor. There were four major contenders for the office
and their platforms all contained change. John Sul-
livan won by a large margin, promising the extension
of Route 481 into Oswego and a program which would
include the opinions of Oswego's young people in his de-
cisions in office.
The Nine Mile Point nuclear power plant finally went
into operation this year. This plant, located just out-
side the city in Scriba, was the most exspensive plant
ever built in the world. The plant was to open better
than ten years ago and went billions of dollars over
budget. To this day it is plagued by operating problems.

Closing Q 207
We've kept our promise.
n May of 1987, Mr Harmony and
Mr Myles, the advisers of The
Paradox, appoached me and
asked if I would like to be the
Editor-in-Chief of the 1988 Paradox.
They explained to me that this position
would take a great deal of time and de-
dication. The yearbook was coming off
of two years of late deliveries of poor
quality books, and they felt I would be
able to reverse this trend and deliver
the best book the school had ever seen.
Honored by their proposal, I accepted
My duties began that spring during
the construction of the Spring Scene
'87. I worked with a staff of about six-
teen students. Most, including myself,
had little or no experience in creating a
yearbook, but we were motivated by
the fact that it was our book and it
could not be as bad as the previous
Then-Juniors Dwayne Narayan,
John DeSantis, Kim Shenefiel and
Eben Norfleet worked hard and put
many hours into the first yearbook
supplement consisting of 24 pages. We
covered all the spring sports, student
activities and Senior functions within
the last few months of school. As the
proofs returned I realized how much
talent I was dealing with and I began
believing that we could be a great infu-
ence on future issues.

ional editorial cartoonist contestf

Summer passed and soon school
began again. Dwayne, John, Kim, and
Eben returned to the staff along with
senior newcomers Tony Leotta and
Janelle Preman. We began working at
the same pace as we did during the pre-
vious spring of many weeks until we
realized it was more than a 24 page in-
sert, it was a 216 page giant. We picked
up our pace and for the first time in
many years an OHS yearbook staff met
its first deadline. The second came and
it too was met. By the third some of us
began to slack off. Tony Leotta, on the
other hand, began working like a mad
man to fulfill not only his deadlines,
but the deadlines of others too. His ded-
ication reinspired the whole staff and
even staffers who had become nearly
invisible turned in at least one spread.
We finished the year making all our
deadlines on time and even made some
early. Now that the book is completed I
would like to thank the following
bMr. Harmony for letting my staff
and I experiment and try new ideas in
bMr. Myles for staying after school
with us so we could have extra time to
make those deadlines we almost

enjoy this book.
he 65th volume ofthe an-
nual publication, Pax-
adox was distributed in
June of 1988. The Par-
adox was written by the students
of the Oswego High School year-
book staff led by Editor-in-Chief
Christopher Nelson. It was prin-
ted by the Hunter Publishing
Company, Winston Salem, N.C. for
the third year in a row, and five of
the past six years. Pub1isher's Re-
presentative was Eric Ludemann.
The book consisted of 216 pages
of which eight were process spot
color and eight were four-color.
The text style was written in Cen-
tury. The book contained six main
sections which included Acad-
emics, Sports, Underclass, Stu-
dent Life, Faculty and Seniors.
The black and white candid
photos were taken by the students
and were developed by Varden
Studios Inc. of Syracuse, New
York. Color photographs were
taken by students and were dev-
eloped by Industrial Color Labs,
Inc. of Syracuse and Skrudland
Photos, Inc. of Hebron, Illinois.
Senior portraits were taken and
developed by Varden Studios. Un-
derclass portraits were taken and
developed by Dormar Studios, a
subsidiary of Varden Studios. The
Paradox is a member of the Col-
umbia Scholastic Press Associa-
tion of Columbia University in the
City of New York.
The estimated cost of producing
volume 65 was 520,000 The books
sold for the price of S18 plus S2 for
names in October 1987. The price
rose to S21 for later sales in Dec-
ember and when the book arrived
in June. The Paradox is a self-
supporting institution and runs
only off the revenues from the
sale of the books and patronage
from community merchants.
All copy and headlines were
written and typed into an IBM PC
by the yearbook staff and the dis-
kettes were sent to the publisher
with the layouts on deadlines.
Oswego has a student popula-
tion of about 1600. It is one of two
high schools in Oswego, a city of
