W ith a list of achievements dating
from March of 1986 on, P.K. aca-
demics had never looked so good. The
accom plishmrents of both individuals and
gro ups were even inore impressive when
the 570 student enrollment of the school
was considered. Some of the accompl ish-
ments of which we were most proud were:
* Fifteen high school and two middle
school students received awards in
county and state science fairs.
1986 seniors took home $20,000 in
The marching and symphonic bands
were rated superior at district contests.
Thirteen French students and six Span-

Fifteen Minutes a Day Was...

Time Well Spent

Kirstin Popper

"Advisory. It's not just a
class, it's an adventure," stated
sophomore Elizabeth Pactor.
Many students agreed with
Pactor. Each person attended a
daily fifteen minute session
with their permanent faculty
adviser, whether they were in
high school or middle school.
These advisory groups became
a miniature version of the
famed "P.K. family." Students
held group discussions on to-
pics of interest to them,
planned their academic ca-
reers, learned about crack co-
caine, and listened to the daily
Teacher advisers were new
to P.K. but not new to educa-
tion itself, having been used in
other schools under different
names for about fifteen years,
according to director Dr. John
Jenkins. Dr. Jenkins recog-
nized the value of promoting a
closer working relationship be-
tween teachers and students, a
relationship that seemed to
grow from the advisory pro-
gram. He experienced student
growth in areas such as scho-
lastic achievement, decision-
making, and organization due
to the student's contact with the
adviser, and hoped the pro-
gram would bring these bene-
fits to P.K.

Teacher adviser Dr. Wes
Corbett also had praise for the
program. "It is a good program
and has a lot of potential," said
Corbett. He wrote a grant
which, if funded, would allow
more materials to be bought to
enhance the advising period,
which would benefit students
and teachers. Corbett saw the
opportunity to involve commu-
nity members in the program,
'allowing a broader focus for
student interests.

New Program, Record


A Year for Firsts

Amanda Bliss

As the last bell of the day
rang, students filed to
their lockers and cars. The hall-
ways, cleared for the first turi-
of the day, showed some stu-
dents ]ii- .:li,.j in tli- opposite
direction-to the auditorium.
They were enrolled in the
Yonge Arts program, a new
and innovative after school at-
tempt to offer students an edu-
cation in the dramatic arts. The
program, divided into acting
and technical theatre areas, let
students decide which path to
follow in reaching their dra-
matic goals.
"Hands on" experience
comprised most of the Yonge
Arts curriculum. Students, un-
der the supervision of program
founder Mr. Robert Wentzlaff,
worked in the University of
Florida theatre shop to gain
technical skills. They also bene-
fited from dance lessons given
by a professional choreo-
grapher. The program culmi-
nated in several student direct-
ed and constructed produc-
tions such as A Christmas
Carol, Frankenstein, and
Let's Murder Marsha. At
the year's end, students accom-
panied Mr. Wentzlaff to a the-
atre workshop in Chicago at
the University of Illinois.
Also participating in Yonge
Arts assemblies was the high
school ensemble. Choral di-

group had doubled in mem-

year. The group performed at
Open House in September, at
Hi-Tide, and sang a holiday
concert in December as well as
a concert in the spring. The en-
semble exposed students to

ture which allowed them to
participate in the Spring Flor-
ida Vocal Association Festival.
Another musical group
boasting an increase in mem-
bership was the middle school
chorus. With thirty-three new
students, the chorus sang for
elementary and middle school
assemblies. The highlight of
their year was their perfor-
mance of the musical The
Electric Sunshine Man, a
biography of Thomas Edison.
The chorus participated in the
state middle school chorus
contest. Director Pat Denson
thought that the chorus made
students feel good about them-
selves and each other.

Although only a fresh-
man, Ezra Freeman (be-

volved in Arete for two
years. Ezra enjoys the op-
portunities Arete gives
him to write and to pur-
sue his interest in the the-
atre. Ezra whose parents
are both actors, has been
in several plays such as
American Cave, A
Christmas Carol, and
Our Town.
Ezra's experience with
the Arete program has
been that there is "never
a dull moment. It's a
place where you can act
like a fool without being
ashamed of yourself. In
Arete, knowledge is less
important than the ability
to think."
According to Ezra, one
of the best features of the
program was the unique
balance struck between
the importance of the in-
dividual and the impor-
tance of the group. "It
takes a group of kids with
the ability to think one
way and teaches them a
whole new, more ad-
vanced way of thinking."

Arete Brings Out

Individual, Group Work Guided

--Kirstin Popper

Arete-an unusual word
for an unusual program.
You can't find the word in a
normal dictionary, and you
won't find the program in ev-
ery school. So what is Arete?
School director Dr. John Jenkins
quoted marathon runner Dr.
George Sheehan: "In Greek
Arete means the best. Arete also
contained the idea of something,
whether it be an object or a crea-
ture, doing exactly what it was
made for. Arete means being the
absolute embodiment of what it
was designed to be. It is not be-
ing better than something else, it
is the best of what is."
The Arete program looked
for students with an above
average readiness for creative
productivity, and helped them
develop that asset. In the mid-
dle school Arete reached stu-
dents through an advanced
English class, a research class,
an independent study seminar,
and a girl's group. Middle
schooler Margery Miller said
she appreciated the program
because it gave her an oppor-
tunity to express herself and to
be creative. Lisa Edwards con-
curred: "Arete makes people

feel like they have a special
quality and gives them a
chance to use it."
The high school branch of
the program included a Yonge
Women's Seminar for girls in
the ninth through twelfth
grades. Instructor Gale Ulmer
worked to integrate Arete ser-
vices across the curriculum, and
took the program into all social
studies classes. Sophomore
Heather Hall enjoyed the pro-
gram's treatment of students as
"mature and intelligent young
adults." Betsy Nichols appreciat-
ed the program for another rea-
son: "It is a great chance to share
ideas with people who under-
stand and care about you."

High school student Holly Ohanian
tells Janet Bishop and Christina Campbell
about the Arete meeting Tuesday night at
Debbie Harris' apartment.





No Pressure
Art Classes a Hit with Students

Danica Bernard

Imagine a class where each
student worked at his own
pace, and spent hours laboring
over every assignment. He
paid meticulous attention to the
smallest details and worked
and reworked the lesson until it
was perfect in his eyes. He was
not trying to win a presidential
award, or even to make it into
an honors program. He was in
art class, doing what was im-
portant to him.
The no-pressure atmosphere
of art classes provided a wel-
come break in the schedule of
many students. Students felt
the classes were special because
"In most subjects you are
scheduled to do things in a cer-
tain way. In art you have room
to be creative in what you are
doing," according to Eric Ri-
ley. Fellow art student Mike
Poole echoed Riley's com-
ments. He liked art "because
there is a lot of freedom in it."
High school art instructor
Wendell Abbott supervised
the art, drawing and painting,
and jewelry making classes.
Henry Scott, a student in draw-
ing and painting, enjoyed the
class because "it was my
chance to show what I could
really do." Similar comments
were often heard from students
in Abbott's other classes.
One of the most popular
electives offered by the middle
school, Brenda Springfield's

art class helped students to be
creative and at the same time to
enjoy themselves. "It always
seemed like fun," said student
Drew McPhail of the middle
school art program. The stu-
dents did projects ranging
from line drawings to paper
mache statues.
Cross stitch, wood burning,
and stencil painting were of-
fered by teacher Norma Spur-
lock in the middle school crafts
class. Spurlock, who has
owned a crafts store, guided
students in their projects. "I
took crafts because I like doing
cross stitch," said Suzanne
Prugh. The students often gave
their projects as gifts.

Middle school art student Chandar
Greene works on a dragon he sketches
from a book. Students relaxed and cre-
ated in the comfort of air conditioning.

Zeba Solomon examines the Art
Fair pictures done by first graders. The
schoolwide fair gave each artist a
chance to exhibit.


Admiring his work, Kevin Poe com-
pares his rendering to the original.

Chris Prugh, a fresh-
man, created his own
type of person. He got the
idea for his paper mache
surfer while watching a
beach movie on televi-
sion. Prugh made the fig-
ure out of paper mache
because clay wasn't
strong enough to support
the surfer's weight. It took
Prugh twelve weeks to
finish the project, which
was shown last May at the
Art Fair.

Another Paper Completed

Traci Welch

It was early Monday morning
and nerves were on edge.
Students were relieved the
long weekend had ended-
yes, relieved. There was no
new disease going around
causing them to act this way. It
was just another English paper
turned in on time. Only elation
or disappointment were to fol-
low when the paper was grad-
ed and returned.
In spite of the inevitable pa-
pers, many students ranked
English as their most beneficial
course. Michelle Chynoweth
summed up the feeling: "The
English department is provid-
ing most of the skills we need to
strengthen us for college and
for our entry tests. It's a very
good program."
The teachers responsible for
positive comments from stu-
dents were serious about their
subject. Vicki Clifford, Betsy
Creveling, Nancy Dean, Susan
Hardee, and Joan Kaywell met
as a department at least once a
month to develop a thorough
program in English for the high
school. "Our goal is to formu-
late a consistent curriculum for
grades nine through twelve
and to keep the kids reading,"
stated department head Vicki
Clifford. In accordance with
the Florida Writing Enhance-
ment Program, students com-
pleted a minimum of one for-

mal paper per week in addition
to achieving a P.K. tradition-a
thorough literary background.
English classes in the middle
school concentrated heavily on
writing skills students would
need in high school. Teachers

Spurlock also worked to get

"I can't do that" or your jaw

ging the ground.
But as you have learned, the
initial panic soon leaves, and a
sort of eerie calm comes over
you. "I have a whole week,"
you say. "This paper will be a
cinch to write."
The day before the paper is
due you sit down with a gallon
of Coca Cola and a bag of pota-
to chips and wait for the right
words to come to you. And wait.
And wait. At midnight you find
something-a phrase, an idea,
that seems to work. In a nearly
catatonic state you complete the
assignment. Your eyes are as
bloodshot as the red lines
you're sure you'll find on the
paper after it is graded. And
you swear you'll never wait this
late again-until the next paper
is due.

What's the hardest thing
about learning a new
language? According to
French student Christine
Thomas, the most difficult task
was trying to remember the
rules and tenses for verbs. An
exasperated student Karen
McKnew exclaimed, "Every-
Teachers of foreign lan-
guages saw problems from an-
other angle. Lori Catanzaro,
Spanish instructor, felt that new
pronunciation sounds con-
fused students the most, as well
as the fear of making an embar-
rassing mistake in front of the
entire class. "Students
shouldn't worry about making
mistakes," Catanzaro said.
"That's how they learn!"
French teacher Jo Stepp saw
students hesitating to put
words together into sentences.
She also stressed that many stu-
dents were surprised at the
concentrated study and class
time required to become fluent
in another language.
In spite of the difficulty of
learning a totally new lan-
guage, students succeeded
and classes prospered. Stepp
contrasted the eighteen people
in Spanish III with the three stu-
dents in that class the previous
year. She felt that the language
classes had great potential, be-
cause students were eager to

learn most of the time.
Enthusiasm for French and
Spanish carried over into club
life. The consolidated Foreign
Language Club broke into its
two nationalities, the French
Club and the Spanish Club.
Senior Paula Sowers was
pleased with the split, saying
that "Last year it was too hard
to do anything together. We
needed to be separated be-
cause of cultural differences."
Under the leadership of Pau-
la Sowers, the French club sold
cookies in decorative tins in
October. The money they
made helped subsidize their

Highlighting the year for the
Spanish club was a Columbus
day Spanish dinner, which
functioned as both a fundraiser
and a celebration. Teachers,
students, and parents partici-
pated in the Mexican hat
dance and enjoyed a wide vari-
ety of Spanish foods. Club
sponsor Catanzaro felt that the
club achieved its goal of in-
creasing school and communi-
ty awareness of Hispanic cul-
ture. For service projects the
club sponsored a third world
child and raised money for di-
saster victims around the
world. The club also looked
forward to a January trip to

Mathcounts is a national
mathematics competition for
seventh and eighth graders.
Before competing on the na-
tional level, students first
have to participate on the
school, region, and state lev-
els. Last spring, the Math-

Captain Cindy Young, Cari
Gibbs, Kirstin Hale, Arlo
Pannell, Cornelia Mallory,
and Ezra Freeman.
In the regional competi-
tion the team took written
examinations on four kinds
of math. It was an all day af-
fair, with breaks between
tests. When the winners
were announced, Young's
team came away with third
place. Cornelia Mallory felt
that the win was remarkable,
"Because we had only pre-
pared for three weeks." Ezra
Freeman found the compe-
tition "Interesting!"

The Smell Was

the Best!

New Books Cause Excitement

Takela Perry

W hat's the best thing
about getting new math
textbooks? According to ge-
ometry student Trent Loseke, it
was "The new smell." Receivi-
ing the new books was an
event celebrated by students
and teachers. "They're much
better than the old books," said
Rob Vargo. "It took long
enough to get them. I though
they would never get here."
"The new books give you a real
challenge. I like them," contin-
ued Missy Montgomery.
Beginning a school year
without the books they had or-
dered did not dampen the spir-
its of math teachers Peter

students with a positive "you

quickly adopted by their

said, "I've liked all of my math
teachers. They made class in-

made me want to learn more."
Seniors also saw the value that
a good background in math
could have after high school
graduation. Doug Brumbaugh
summed it up: "Math will help
you get a high ranking job."
Middle school math was
taught by Dan Nass, Kathy
Young, and Cindy King. Nass
interested his class in math by

relating stories of his teaching

The staff sat nervously around
a circular table in the ballroom
of the Hyatt Orlando. As
F.S.P.A. president Harry Sta-

creased. "We were already de-
pressed because we didn't

the absolute best it could be,"
commented newspaper editor
Kyla Grogan. The staff had a
major incentive to do so, since
the newspaper had received a
second place award in the Flor-
ida Scholastic Press Associ-
ation Miami Herald competi-
tion the previous May. Long
hours spent on layout and re-
writing copy made staff mem-
bers think another winning trip
to the F.S.P.A. was a possibility.
Adviser Vicki Clifford began
the year by testing each staff
member's abilities. The staff's
first assignment was to attend a
school football game and re-
port on any aspect of the game,
on the field or in the stands. "It
was an interesting beginning to
the year," Lee Ann Delaino re-
Clifford also concentrated
on training a layout crew. One
assignment, which involved
drawing mock layout sheets
from the front page of the
Gainesville Sun, was par-
ticularly effective in helping
the staff form an understanding
of trhe complexities of layout
and design.
New staff members were sur-
prised to find how much work
went onto the production of an
award winning newspaper. Jeff

Hazen commented, "There's
more to newspaper than just
reading it." Missy Hood ex-
plained, "Because I'd never
worked on a newspaper be-

For students wanting some

Although a few students
thought that the program had
no real importance other than
increasing their grade point

the course had a sound pur-
pose. "Personal fitness is de-
signed to expose students to
the different vehicles involved
in keeping physically fit," Clif-
ford commented.
Life management skills, the
second part of the physical
education program, took place
in the classroom rather than in
the gym or on a playing field.

studying bats for sixteen
years since one of his pro-
fessors at the University
of Florida was working on
a problem of bat ecology.
Bonaccorso became in-
terested in the number of
different species of bats
that could exist in one
area. His interest took
him to Costa Rica where
he caught his first fruit bat
over the river Corobici.

lowed them to get an extra
credit toward graduation, but
found it hard to concentrate in
the wee hours of morning. "I'm
not a morning person; it's not
my learning style," comment-
ed Naomi Selove. Other stu-
dents found the class difficult
for different reasons. "I really
enjoy the class, but sometimes
it's hard to be really involved if
you've had a late night of
homework the night before,"
said Kirstin Pcpper. "Also, if
you don't drive you have to be

Popper continued.

H ighly ranked in a poll of
favorite classes, social
studies courses enjoyed contin-
ued popularity with students.
The classes taught by depart-
ment head Dr. Wes Corbett,
Mac Duggans, Wade Ring and
middle school teacher Herb
Dupree were, according to
Danica Bernard, "A riot."
Due to the loss of two year
veteran teacher Mark Johnson,
the high school classes were di-
vided between Corbett and
Duggans. When asked to com-
ment about his students and his
increased work load, Duggans
replied, "If I had a gun ..."
then conceded that the best
thing about teaching at P.K.
Yonge was its students.
In addition to the required
classes of civics, world history,
and American history, P.K. also
hosted a psychology class that
met on Monday nights from
5:30 to 8:30. The course, spon-
sored by Santa Fe Community
College, gave credit as both a
high school course and a col-
lege course. Students in the
class ranged from high school
freshmen to college freshmen.
The attitude toward the class
was cheerful and optimistic.
Senior Paula Sowers summed
up the opinions of most stu-
dents: "The class is intellectual-
ly challenging and interesting.
I'm glad I took it." Principal

Chris Morris was also pleased
with the course. "It gives you
more choices in college, as
well as free college credit," she
said. "I'm for all of these
classes, as many as we can get.
I'm glad that we're making our
school available for the pro-
gram. I love it."

Though the teacher is a favor-
ite, the class was the subject of
much controversy, especially
among students who took the
class in upper grades. "I like
Mr. Ring and his class, although
I can do without the freshmen. I
think the class would be more
applicable on the junior or sen-

Hair, one hot Tuesday after-
noon in early September.
Blue Wave staffers shook off
their nervousness and stilled
their knocking knees in a first
attempt to sell ads to finance
their yearbook. University reg-
ulations, which in the past had
prohibited the staff from ac-
cepting advertisements, were
lifted this year. Finding buyers
was often a physically exhaust-

did not have cars walked the

Monies raised from the ad
sales coupled with another first,

the staff to increase their book
from 128 pages to 192 pages.
Double page spreads could
now be given to every event,
sport, and subject. Yet another
first, a mini magazine in the stu-
dent life section, was possible
due to the 64 page increase.

ber, Charles Clingensmith,
thought the yearbook room

All staffers, new or old, en-

The crew-cuts that
made P.K. baseball
players noticeable in
class last year had
grown out. No numbers
were shaved on the
sides of players' heads,
as was common during
football season. So what
made the varsity base-
ball team stand out? ...
Their performance on
the field.
Early into the season
Coach Bobby Hawkins
was optimistic about
games yet to come.
"We'll be a definite
contender," he said
"We've got a typical
'P.K.' team: good skill
and good attitude.
Through our freshmen

and j.v. programs we've
tried to develop a
strong varsity program.
So far it: '.orked."

"Will you pledge
me please?" David
Willis asked a fresh-
man. "The baseball
team is raising money
for equipment," he
added. "Get outta
here man," Michael
Poole interrupted as
he knocked David out
of the way. "You
promised to sponsor
me yesterday, remem-
ber? Get outta here!"
he said laughing, as he
pushed David again to
keep him at bay.
Students fell victim
to this scene during
the beginning of Feb-
ruary. Varsity baseball
players were frantic to
sign as many pledges
as possible. The play-
ers, joined parents in a
fifty inning fundraiser
which was the basis for
their need of pledges.
The funds were
used to buy equip-
ment and make field
improvements possi-
ble. Dug outs were up-
graded, bleachers
bought and clay pur-

Starting the season with
an invitational tourna-
ment at Ocala Van-
guard, the junior varsity base-
ball team had the opportunity to
show their stuff. Although the
team was not favored to do well,
sharp pitching and swinging
brought them to the champion-
ship game after defeating Van-
guard 5-4 and then Dunnellon
17-9. P.K. moved on to play
Marion High School in the
championship game, but they
were defeated by the powerful
"I thought the team per-
formed well, considering it was
their first game with only a few
practices," stated sophomore,
Danny Hall.
"I think we had better talent
last year, but this year's team is
better because we don't give up
and we play as a team," stated
player Chris Pisarri. The team
practiced batting and catching
every day after school.
During the beginning of the
season J.V. players spent much

seen re-constructing bleachers,

To keep the basefield "look-

During the tournament, J.V.
players were designated to
work at the games. Their jobs
were to run the concession
stand, chase foul balls, and to
prepare the field between
games. They were also respon-
sible for running the score-
board and announcing the
games. "You get to watch the

The freshman team
was playing to learn bet-

were three main objec-
tives in the ninth grade
baseball program. One
was to get the middle
schoolers interested in
playing baseball; the sec-
ond was to become ac-
customed to playing on a
regulation-size diamond;
and the third and most
important "is for the kids
to have a good time," ac-
cording to varsity coach,
Bob Hawkins.
"We're out there to
have fun and try to win
some games while we're
at it," stated freshman,
Matt Rowe.

Tempts team; Disappears

Track Welch

P.K. graduate, former football
players, and assistant coach
John Lassiter gives Mark Steen

a last minute tip. Lassiters famil-
iarity to the team helped morale
and enthusiasm.

It was a night to be re-
membered. The junior
varsity football team had
won their first game
against Hawthorne. It ap-
peared as though their
season would be exciting
and better than in pre-
vious years.
Unfortunately, it was
not to be that way. De-
spite the teams 13-6 rout
of Hawthorne, and a for-
feit by Cross City, the
winning streak never
came. The following
games were close in
score, but the Blue Wave
remained on the bottom
every time.
In games against the

Keystone Heights Indians
and the Newberry Pan-
thers, the offense was un-
able to succeed even
with the all out efforts of
fullback Todd Sullivan
and tailback Michael
Hudson. Fumbles and
technical errors plagued
the teams last games
against the Union County
Tigers, the Chiefland In-
dians, and the Williston
Red Devils.
Coach Cecil Barnes
felt that the team was in-
consistent. "Also, injuries
hurt us a lot in the later
games," Barnes added.
Even though the season
was disappointing,

Barnes remained opti-
mistic about next year,
believing that success
would come if the team
had a better variety of
players. Players admitted
that personal feelings
added to the complica-
tions on the team. Berdell
Knowles said, "We had
pretty good coaches. We
just didn't get along that
good." The team mem-
bers agreed that the
coaches were very en-
couraging. "Coach
Barnes was very support-
ive of all his players,"
commented Justin Titus.

For many years the
boys soccer team
flourished because of a
number of talented play-
ers who have since
graduated. Their names
echoed throughout the
halls and younger stu-
dents used them as role
models. It was as if those
few were born to play
soccer; consequently
they were envied by
many and the soccer
team reached new
heights. Although their
departure was depicted
to be disastrous, the ex-
perience was leaving,
but not the talent.
The soccer team start-
ed under the shadow of
the previous year. The
memories of those before
them loomed in their

mind and boosted their
morale. The team was de-
termined to live up to the
expectations of fans.
They lacked experience,
but possessed raw talent,
drive, and a desire to win.
The key word to their suc-
cess was improvement.
They used their abilities
to their fullest capability.
The long hours at prac-
tice working endlessly on'
kicks and strengthening
their endurance finally
paid off when the season
The team played a vari-
ety of opponents of equal
capability, but in most
cases they were able to
rally and score enough
goals to win or at least tie.
Coach Ted Giesel led the
team into victories over

large schools like Cocoa
Beach, Middleburg,
Ocala, Forest, Ocala
Vanguard, Florida High,
and Tampa Berkley. His
time, interest, and devo-
tion towards the team was
welcomely returned by
the members in sweat
and bruises. "I felt he was
a pretty good coach" stat-
ed goalie Travis Loseke.
Despite the looming
memories of the great
members of yesteryears,
the boys soccer team was
able to find hidden tal-
ents and keep the win-
ning tradition. With the
experience gained this
year, the future looked
bright for the soccer

It is the last half of the

The pampering and cod-

last forever. Soon the

to want to play and sports

hat Does Spring Bring?

Krista Hair

W hen spring rolled
around so did the
softball and track teams.
Both teams had good rea-
son to catch the proverbi-
al spring fever. For soft-
ball, there was a new
addition. Along with
many new players there
was a new coach, Joan
Kaywell. Kaywell had
been playing softball for
over ten years. Teams
she'd played on included
the Tampa Gremlins, the
Honeybees of Lakeland
and a local team, Conti-
nental Waters of Gaines-
ville. Kaywell was excited
about her coaching posi-
tion. "I love it! They have
hearts as big as the school
and work superhard,"
she said she wanted to
build the program by de-
veloping good skills,
sportsman-like behavior
and team comraderie.
She would have liked to
see the addition of du-
gouts and new bleachers.
One thing that the
team had to deal- ih ..
inexperience even
though there were twen-
ty-one players. "With a
new coach and team, it's
a big adjustment," ex-
plained senior Cathy
Beckham. Kaywell con-

sidered the infield to be
one of the team's strong
points because of the to-
getherness that existed.
Like softball, the P.K.
track team also had many
new members. "We only
had a handful of athletes
last year. This year we
have a good turnout not
just in quantity but in
quality which should
translate into several vic-
tories along the way," ex-
plained Coach Frank Re-
guero. "With more
people, we have a base to
build on," stated junior
Holly Ohanian.
Occasionally the team
used the University of
Florida's facilities be-

VV Unavoidable'

Danica Bernard

T he tennis team had
grown since last
year's team of eight play-
ers. They lost two seniors
from last year, but gained
freshmen, three sopho-
mores, two juniors, and
three seniors. With the
expansion of the team,
Coach Betsy Creveling
decided that there were
enough girls players for a
J.V. team, for the first time
in a long while. "It gives
people who haven't
played that much tennis a
chance to progress, so
they can play better next
year," claimed Tony Bar-
ret, the first seed for boys
varsity. "You have more
of a team feeling with the
J.V." said third seed Lau-
ra Zuckerburg.
Some of the people
who were on the team
had never picked up a
racket in their lives, let
alone played an actual
game with anyone. Oth-
ers, had been playing
since they were about
twelve years old. Coach

Jumping with the serve Bri-
an Barrett scores a point against
his team mate Dawn Richard-

Creveling was confident
though, that everyone
had that P.K. spirit which
made them give it their
all. "I want to make this
the best year we've ever
had," said Coach Crevel-
The team as a whole
seemed to get along well.
"We speak to each other
when its unavoidable: no,
just kidding, we really
have fun" said Zeba Solo-
mon, "I remember that

last year we had a wet
sock fight. It was really
gross. We all took off our
socks and started to
throw them in everyone

A Swinging


Playing tennis comes easy
to Tony Barrett, who has
been playing since the sev-
enth grade. "It's a lot of fun
and I enjoy the competitive
nature of the sport." Tony,
who is also on the soccer
team, has been on the tennis
team for the past three
years. He is also one of the
two seniors on the team. He
holds the first seed position,
while his brother, Brian,
holds the position right be-
hind him. "Competing for
first position is tough, you
have to practice with and
play against people who are
better than you. And," he
continued, "this year it's
even harder because we
have more people than ever

Warming up with 210
pounds, Doug Calderwood
concentrates on upcoming lifts
against Williston.



Michelle Ross

H ardwork, dedica-
tion, and encour-
agement were three key
words which described
the attitude of the weight-
lifting team. "You have to
be dedicated to achieve
in weightlifting." said
freshman Matt Rowe.
Their hard work showed
in their meets, especially
for the team members
who made it to state.
Greg Linzmeyer and
C'hris. Moon attended the
meet in Hawthorne, and
placed eighth and elev-
enth respectively in their
division. "State was great
until I got killed." said ju-
nior Chris Moon.
The team was not victo-
rious at all their meets,
however, but they did
achieve many impressive
personal records and
broke many longstand-
ing school records.

Front: Coach Roy Silvers,
Greg Linzmayer, Danny Bre-
dahl, Jabal Uffleman, David
Teply, Middle: Rob Vargo, Mi-
chael Walker, Thys Ouderland,
Doug Calderwood, Danny
Meade, E.J. Delaino. Back:
Omar Singleton, Mike Linz-
mayer, Chris Moon, Ian Calder-
wood, Tracy James, Joe Mark-

Although 90 percent
of the team had a little or
no experience, the veter-
ans helped to hold the
team together. "The vet-
erans are the backbone
of the team." said Coach
Roy Silvers.
Chris Moon was one of
the 'veteran' team mem-
bers who went to state
this year. This was Chris's
second year on the team.
Chris really liked the in-
dividualism of weightlift-
ing." It's a lot different
from other sports. It's
more individualized, so
you can do well on your
own. Mistakes by other
team members don't real-
ly affect how you do."
Chris also had advice
for athletes of other
sports, "joining the team
helps for other sports, be-
cause it makes you stron-
ger, and being stronger

makes the rougher sports
You don't have to be
able to lift a lot to join the
team, because once you
start working, you'll get a
lot better." Moon said.

Try-outs for the varsity
cheerleading squad had
a twist. Those trying out
were given scores-as in
years before-but nu-
merical values in areas
considered were
changed. Scores from
the skill evaluation were
no longer the primary
point area. Scores here
made up only 120 points
(one third) of the cumula-
tive score. The remaining
240 points depended on
teacher recommenda-
tions and grades.
The changes in scoring
changed the squad's
look. A few new girls
made the squad while
girls with cheerleading
experience did not.
Some negative reactions
took place after try-outs.
Students who did not
make the squad, and
even some who did, felt
cheated. However, the
squad's achievements:

Everyone is an expert at something. Mi-
chelle Harden demonstrates a perfect toe-
touch to the squad before a basketball
game against the Williston Red Devils.
"Toe touches are easy for me," Michelle
said. "It's my best jump, so I've worked on
it a lot."

Stunts, jumps, and cheers demand
flexibility. Tina Gelatt makes sure she is
thoroughly stretched out before perform-
ing. "The squad doesn't have a problem
with pulled or stretched muscles like other
squads, because we know how to warm
up," Gelatt said.

Waking up at 6:30 was for-
eign to most students over the
summer, but from July 28 to
July 31 the junior varsity cheer-
leaders did just that. They at-
tended the United Cheerlead-
ing Association's summer
camp at Jacksonville Universi-
ty. Thier days were filled with
improvement clinics, instruc-
tional classes, and competi-
tions. "Getting up at 6:30
wasn't bad. It was all we did
after we got up that was hard."
Kim Robertson said, "Yeah,"
added Heather Lewis, "we
never stopped. It was straight
from one thing to another.
But," she said with a smile, "I
guess it was worth it."
Heather was referring to the

U.C.A. camp. With only one
veteran member the squad
overcame the odds and won
nine ribbons and one trophy.
The ribbons, eight of which
were for superior perfor-
mance, came from daily com-
petitions. But on the final day of
camp, the squad showed their
total ability and walked off with
the overall best trophy. "We
worked hard every day, but the
last day was definitely the har-
dest and scariest. It was the
most fun, too," said Tristana
Hewett. "Beating the snobby

Eaglerly awaiting
tryouts for the junior var-
sity cheerleading squad,
eighth and ninth grade
girls suffered through the
month of April. Try outs,
to their dismay, consisted
of three elements: teach-
er recommendation, aca-
demic grade, and skill
evaluation. The skill eval-
uatioh offered the most
pressure. Candidates
went through two weeks
of practice to prepare
themselves for it. Contes-
tants were required to
perform an individual
cheer, a group cheer, a
chant, a partner stunt,
jumps, and a dance. ,"I

was super nervous be-
cause it was such a big
deal," said Liza Bush. "In
about ten minutes you ei-
ther made it or you
Try outs were particu-
larly important since the
squad had only one re-
turning member, captain
Tina Gelatt. Heather Wil-
liams was voted co-cap-
tain after the squad was
selected. The thirteen
new cheerleaders began
practice immediately
after try outs to prepare
for spring football jambo-
ree. Each week the girls
logged at least three
hours of practice time.
For many people,
spending so much time
together would lead to
frazzled nerves and petty
irritations. The squad,
however, had few prob-
lems in getting along.
"We were a team," Mi-
chelle Harden comment-
ed. "A lot of people say
stuff about cheerleaders
like we're just playing
around, but we were a
team. Like football play-
ers or whatever, we got
along like a team. We
supported each other
and laughed a lot. Some-
times we argued, but not
too much," Harden con-
Cheering for football
and basketball games
made for hectic sched-
ules. "Between home-
work, practices, and
games it felt like we were
always going," said Tris-
tana Jewett. Since their
schedule spanned two
sport seasons, the squad
was active longer than
any other sport.

Death and Rebirth

Of A Tradition

Because of the yearbook's
increased involvement in var-
ious Scholastic Press associ-
ations, many changes occurred
in this year's book. The year-
book staff attended workshops
and conventions directed to-
ward helping improve the
book. They were taught what
things to include: important
changes and events that year;
and what to exclude: repetition
of facts, posed shots, boring
news stories, uncaptioned pic-
tures and baby pictures. Baby
pictures? Could it be that our
tradition was boring? That no
one really cared anyway? The
staff soon found out. They

changed that! Dump the kiddie
shots. However, the student re-
sponse brought about the res-
urrection of a tradition.
The following responses
were typical of those received
by the staff from angry stu-
"That isn't fair. Its the fun-
niest part of the annual."
Rhonda Ray
"That's stupid, why don't we
just not have a senior section at

The senior class once again
honors those who for whatever

enducting them into the Senior
Hall of Fame. It has been a tra-

as students are nominated by
their peers for the honorary
categories. It is an opportunity
to recognize those seniors with
school spirit, humorous jokes
and outstanding potential. The

It was thirteen years ago
when we came to this place
called school. It was a place
that was suppose to be fun, or
at least that's what our parents
told us. Naturally we trusted
them and didn't worry about it
until the first day came.
Walking down that long hall-
way filled with the sound of
children's high pitched chat-
ter, we approached the first

day of school. Everything
looked so unfamiliar and unin-
viting. We held on to our moms
hand for dear life, thinking if
we passed through that door-
way we would die of fright.
There was that lump in our
throats that began to make our
eyes water but we swallowed
bravely and next thing we
knew we were in the middle of
a room looking at all the

strange faces. Turning around
for reassurance, we noticed
our moms were gone. We
walked slowly towards our
seats. We never thought those
faces would ever become fa-
miliar sights and the day
seemed like it would never

ki r

On November 20, the sen-
iors set the trend for a
new tradition with the first an-
nual senior seminar. The class
went to Paynes Prarie to spend
the day away from the usual
hectic campus. Approximately
75 out of the 84 students pre-
pared to enjoy a day filled with
learning, games, walks, and a
feast of foreign foods.
"It was much better than I
expected. It was amazing that
our unspirited class actually
did something original and had
fun," said the chief organizer
and senior class president
Rhonda Ray.
The day began with a divi-

sion of students into four
groups. Each group spent
roughly thirty minutes listening
to one of the four speakers on a
variety of subjects, such as date
rape, stress management tech-
niques, planned parenthood,
After the rotation of speakers
the seniors took on a look of
excitement as they quickened
their pace toward the picnic
area. "It was awesome, with all
the food that was there we
could eat almost anything we
craved," said Brent Riley.
There were four tables set up
with Mexican, Italian, tradition-
al, and dessert-type foods.

As the day went on, the sen-
iors took advantage of the
beautiful outdoor surround-
ings and outrageously clear,
sunny sky. Once the pinata was
broken students were given
the opportunity to do a variety
of things, such as play volley-
ball, football, dancing, taking a
tour of the prarie, walking on
some near-by trails, or finding
a cozy spot by the breezy lake.
The day ended at 3:15 pm
when the buses came upon the

It was December 19th and all
the seniors prepared to
gather in Mrs. Dean's room for
an event, planned to be the
best holiday gathering since
senior seminar day. The tables
were covered with festive

ranged and the food was set.
The fourth period English class,
as hosts, decorated the room in
preparation for over one hun-

day of school. It was
tough but we lived through it
and thirteen more years. Those
strange faces turned to ones we
loved. We were together
through the bumps, scratches,
crushes, and heartbreaks. We
grew to depend on each other
for support when we thought

we'd never get through it. We
shared the petty first secrets of
who had a crush on who, the
first person we kissed and those

first loves and fights.
We didn't think the pres-

we held on to each other to
keep our heads above water.

College plans were not
only on the minds of sen-

also. Ninety five percent
of the sophomores sur-

to attend a college or uni-

mates who knew they
would attend college but

said he would go to "Any

Guidance counselor
Jerry Thompson said de-
ciding on colleges was
not a theme of the tenth
grade, but eleventh
grade centered around
the search for the right
school. "All tenth graders
don't need to worry
about which college to
go to," Thompson said.


"Wait until your eleventh
grade year to decide."
Thompson also said that
college is a disadvantage
only if you're in college
and want to do some-
thing else. "It's a very
broadening experience.
If you're not planning on
going to college, you
should do some serious
planning-for jobs after
graduation, for some-
thing productive."
College in the minds of
sophomores were:

Cohesive Class Creates


What was this year's
sophomore class really
like? Teachers and stu-
dents gave their opin-
ions, which were mixed,
but leaned toward the
positive side.
Guidance counselor
Dr. Nancy Baldwin felt
that "The class is really an
interesting group of indi-
viduals and appears to
have good leadership. It
looks as if there will be
good scores in this
group-National Merit
History teacher Mac
Duggins thought the
class was one of the best.
Duggins said, "This class
is the nicest group of indi-
viduals assembled in one
place. I am very fond of
this group. I wish them
the best of everything in
the future. Students con-
centrated on different
features of the class. "I
like us, but I wish we
would get together and

plan a class trip or some-
thing. We talk about a lot
of things, but nothing has
come together yet," said
Christine Thomas. Andy
McLaughlin said the
class was unique because
of its cohesiveness. "You
have your groups like in
any school-trendies,
punks, jocks, and all. But
there's a lot of interaction
between the groups, no
one goes out of their way
to be rude to someone
who looks or acts differ-
ently than them."
The class did come to-
gether to create a new
fundraiser, Pop-A-Bal-
loon. Instead of the tradi-
tional carnations or can-
dy sold at Christmas, they
sold red and green bal-
loons containing mes-
sages to faculty and stu-
dents. The money that
was collected went to-
ward a class activity.
Many students hoped the
activity would pan out.

Freshmen experienced a
feeling of school involvement
unknown to them before. "This

got to try out for cheerleading.
Now I feel like a real part of my
school," said Michelle Harden.
"Plus, we got to vote on the
homecoming court and got to
know a new group of people."
Harden said the problem of
cliques didn't bother her. "I
don't worry too much about it,

except you want the seniors to
like you," she said.
Freshmen were especially
visible at Hi-Tide. They acted
in many of the skits. They deco-
rated the football field for the
homecoming game, and did
such a good job that the upper-
classmen took note. "The field
looked really terrific. I was im-

Happy children tooled around

If this sounds familiar, it's be-

Suddenly, skateboards were

rule. They cited lack of trans-

rights, and oppression as rea-

sons for their uproar.
"We've always had a rule re-

campus," the administrators
said. So did, it seemed, the Uni-
versity; skateboards were not
supposed to be allowed on
sidewalks or walkways any-
where on campus. Since P.K.
was a part of the University, the
rule was applied here as well.
Compromises, deals, and
peace treaties were attempted,
but the administration was firm
in their position. Teachers even
offered to keep their students
skateboards during the day,
but to no avail. "We just can't

When The Wave

Needs Water ...

Danica Berrard

During a football game, who
is always ready to supply the
team with towels and fresh
balls? Who brings the water for
thirsty players at a moments no-
tice? The water boys. They do a
little bit of everything.
Eighth graders Chris Doer-
ing and Scott Stoner were the
co-managers and co-water
boys for the football team. They
found their job demanding but
also very rewarding. "People
think water boys just carry wa-
ter to the players," Doering
said. "Anyone who thinks that
obviously hasn't been down on
the sidelines, he continued.
"We have to make sure every-
thing is perfect. Water boys
take the heat for everything,"

Stoner said; "er l.. ti- i it inr1, ,

Water boys had to be .alrt
through the whole game Lbe-
cause they might have missed a
signal from the coach or from a
player. Besides serving water,
getting towels and tossing
balls, they explained what was
going on to the yearbook pho-
tographer who knew very little
about football. "See that sign
over there with the two on it?"
they told her, "That means
we're on our second down. We
get four downs."
Close bonds developed be-
tween the water boys and the
team. Jeff Hazen, wide receiv-
er, said, "They work hard and
really do a good job. We ap-

The season was fall, the
time Halloween. The mid-

citement because the Hallow-

Prime Time groups were hav-

Kathy Youngs Prime Time se-
cretly voted to have Eric Riley

new position, which he cooly
accepted until he found out
that he would have to dress up

Riley's reaction. "Can't you

No other ideas came up. Eric
never made the connection

Spirit week took place dur-
ing the homecoming celebra-
tion. Each day of the week was
claimed by a different grade,

who selected a theme for the
day. Students and faculty who
did not observe the theme of the
day were subject to scoldings
by more spirited Blue Waves.
The final day of spirit week
was homecoming Friday.
Toga, the theme of the day, car-
ried over into the dance that
night, although many wore
Halloween costumes to ob-
serve the holiday. Even though
fireworks from the University of
Florida Halloween Ball could
be seen throughout the football
game, a celebration was not in
order for the team or the fans,
as the game was lost to the
Newberry Panthers by a score
of 21 to 7.

Hi TTide

Christine Thomas

You want to go to the
Green spoofs Dean Parker and
the year's hottest topic-the off
limit lot.


What did Little Blue Rid-
ing Hood, the parking
lot, teachers in high school,
pain!, double dating, Rambo,
the Mystery Guest, and insult-
ing rhyme duels have in com-
mon? They were the featured
acts of Hi Tide.
The festivities began with a
performance of Eclipse a local
student rock group, at Low
Tide. People enjoyed both the
music and their spaghetti din-
ners sold by the booster club.
Low Tide started with lip
synching and air bands, but
before all the acts were able to
perform it was time for Hi Tide
to begin.
The event that everyone had
awaited for three months was
finally underway. Chris Ed-

munson and Jason McNeal
came bursting through the
crowd and thrilled the audi-
ence with their hilarious antics,
such as duckwalking and
changing hats constantly,
while they introduced the skits.
Kyla Grogan said, "Chris and
Jason's insanity and unique-
ness as emcees greatly repre-
sented the class of '87." Ed
Munson remembering the
event, commented, "I think Ja-
son and I did a good job for not
practicing. All the future em-
cees shouldn't rehearse either.
It seems to make things more
original and exciting."
Following custom since
1953, P.K. had the traditional
Sbon fire after the Hi Tide skits.
The drumline led the crowd to

the pyramidial pile up and kept
the spirit alive. Heather Hall,
bon fire chairperson, despara-
tely searched for the owner of
an unclaimed car that stood in
the way of the evening's event.
Finally the car was removed
and didn't have to become part
of the blazing inferno.
Regardless of the setbacks,
the 86-87 Hi Tide has been
viewed by many as the best
ever! And as Jim Clingensmith
stated, "I'm glad that in my sen-
ior year I was able to be a part
of such a memorable event. I'll
never forget seeing Coach Sil-

take his date, Victoria Cardenos
to the prom.



A misty ballroom at the
Gainesville Women's
Club filled with thousands of

balloons framed the 1986 Ju-

The music for the prom, to
many of the attendee's sur-
prise, was fantastic, "consider-
ing the music was done by a D-
Jay." replied Jennifer Evans.
Girls wore beautiful gowns
of all colors, accepted with
long or short gloves and many
other breathtaking accessories,
such as rhinestones, pearls, rib-
bons, and bows. Their dates

were decked out in tuxedoes
with cumberbunds and bow
ties often echoing the color of
their date's gown.
From the time prom started
until it ended, photographers
from Bryn-Alan took pictures to
help couples remember the
evening. A plain, dusty back-
ground did justice to the colors
of the gowns and tuxedoes. Bri-
an Sorli, however, complained
that the photographers cut
people off at the waist, thus

pep R allies

. Krista Hair


Having only two pep ral-
lies a year made each
one a special event. However,
crowd participation on these
two occasions was very low.
"Students enjoy pep rallies,"
said Lunetta Williams. "But we
need more people standing up
in the bleachers when the
cheerleaders say 'All for the
Blue Waves stand up and hol-
ler.' "
Some blamed the variety of
acts at the rallies for the poor

participation. Skits, according
to Karla Davis, "were always
repeats from the past. They
lack any new ideas." Complex
cheers gave Christina Camp-
bell reason to complain. "If
they had more simple cheers,
then the whole crowd would
get involved."
One act that did manage to
raise the crowd's enthusiasm
was the band. Karyn King said
her favorite thing about the
pep rallies was the band. "I
think they play exceptionally
well," King added. Danny Hall
was in awe of the drum line. "I
wish the drum line got to play
more often," Hall commented.


Satisfying a sweet tooth,
football players Chris Moon
and E.J. Delaino compete for a
bag of candy. The twosome imi-
tated the cheerleaders and re-
ceived the most applause to win
the candy.

A bright spot in the rallies
was the performance of new
athletic director John Clifford.
Some felt he brought hope into
the otherwise repetitive events.
Drum major Catherine Cake
said, "After years of drab pep
rallies we've finally found
someone who can bring a
bored crowd to its feet and to
the top of its voice. He's proven
that it only takes a little creative
thought and a lot of enthusiasm
to bring out the hard-to-reach
but true spirit in Blue Wave

"What's the next line?" Var-
sity cheerleaders Christyn Dol-
bier and Chelle Chynoweth
read the Alma Mater as the
band plays. Pep rallies and
graduation were some of the
few times the song was sung, al-
ways accompanied by the
words on a sheet of paper.

Music hath charms... Drum Major Catherine
Cake leads the band in a rendition of George
Benson's "On Broadway." The band managed to
get even the most disgruntled pep rally attendees
swaying in their seats.

Climbing the Chichen Itza
pyramids in Mexico was
harder than it looked. On Janu-
ary 17 a brave group of stu-
dents attempted to scale the
small six inch steps. Michelle
Brooten was one of these stu-
dents. "I've never seen any-
thing like them," Brooten said
of the pyramids. The pyramids
were high and very steep, with
a few hundred steps. By the
time Michelle reached the top,
she said she was ready to drop.
"It took all my energy and
breath to get there," Brooten

Once atop the pyramids,
Brooten said the people on the
ground looked like small in-
sects. "The first thing I did was
get out my camera and start
snapping pictures. I was so ex-
cited to finally reach the top,"
she said. What goes up must
come down, and Brooten was
no exception. The climb down
was scary for her because she
looked like she was so far from
the ground. "Every few steps I
had to stop and catch my
breath. My legs felt like jelly.
Finally I reached the bottom.
It'll be a long time before I do
that again," she said.

The four day North Carolina ski
spree was the first time many in
the group had seen snow.
The drive took an entire day,
but participants thought it was
well worth it. The only draw-
back was a lack of variety in
traveling companions. "It was a
great idea and we had tons of
fun, but it was too bad that
more people didn't go," Chel-
sea Jones said.
Unfavorable weather greet-

The evidence of the close-
ness of the school was denoted
by its nickname, the "P.K. Fam-
ily." Students had been a part
of the family from the moment
they entered the school, some
of them being together for thir-
teen years. Some knew each
other so well that it was scary.
Often, dating another student
was considered as distasteful as
dating a brother or sister.
When students managed to
grab that elusive date, what
strange or unusual places did
they frequent? The cemetery
was a popular spot, because,
said Teri Birge, "Dead people
tell no tales." Other strange
date spots were: the book store,

Anew addition to the
cafeteria menu caused
a great sensation-the sand-
wich line. According to
lunchroom manager Gloria
Purnell, the sandwich line
was installed to give stu-
dents and faculty an alterna-
tive to the normal cafeteria
food by allowing them to de-
cide how they wanted their
sandwiches prepared.
"Also, we wanted to delete
the old image of school cafe-
terias," Purnell added.
The popularity of the new
line was due to the fact that
consumers could choose the
ingredients for their sand-
wiches, and could see it be-
ing made on the spot. Kevin
Poe felt that "It's a big im-
provement and the prices
are O.K., although the line
moves too slowly." Most
agreed that it was worth the
wait. Karyn King believed
the line was "a step for the

The biggest news on campus was
the addition of air conditioning. Al-
though many thought the school
would never get it, the air condition-
ing was finally a reality.,
"We were the second laboratory
school in Florida to get air condition-
ing, and Florida Agricultural and
Mechanical University's lab school is
now beginning their installation,"
Chris Morris said. The first phase of
the school's air conditioning, which
cost the state $325,000, was made
possible by the fourteen member
Board of Regents.
Even though air conditioning was
m Ithe one thing students and faculty
agreed upon wanting, the newness
and excitement soon wore off be-
cause of the very low, University-
controlled thermostats. "Before we
S had a.c., it was too hot in the summer
and too cold in the winter. Now it's
the other way around," Danny Bre-
dahl said. Guidance secretary Wan-
da Smith agreed. "Most people
would enjoy it more if the tempera-
ture could be controlled," Smith
There were only minor draw-
backs, however. "The best benefit of
air conditioning is that it enhances
our ability to concentrate, we're
more comfortable," Chelle
Chynoweth said. Karl Vierck
summed it up: "The air conditioning
is too cold. Most of the time we sit in
class and freeze; but it's much better
than sitting in sweat."

Applauding fans weren't the only kind of
fans in the auditorium before air conditioning
was installed. Students learned to work while
their papers were blowing away and teachers

current movie and television
stars stressed the importance of
proceeding with caution and
having a personal warning sys-

become too much.
Tuesday brought the Say No

body president Kyla Grogan
got the festivities underway by
leading the Pledge of Alle-

A Job
Paula Sowers
What do students who don't play
sports do after school? Look for them
in part time jobs. A few years ago,
fast food restaurants held the only
jobs for teenagers. Now the choices
for employment seem endless. Bur-
dines, J.C. Penney's, bakeries, gro-

Kyla Grogan, who works at Bur-
dine's doing modeling, said that the
advantage of working is"socializing
with the fine guys!" McDonald's em-
ployee lan Calderwood said that
"Getting discounts on your pur-
chases" made working work for him.
On the other hand, there are some
disadvantages of working. Sam Can-
to said that "Knowing I have all the
rest of my life to work, I think I should
be out partying." Another disadvan-
tage is "The work itself," according
to Michelle Ross. The biggest reward
in working comes when the pay-
check arrives. Clothes, car, food, in-
surance, and gas are the hot items on
which to spend money. Most stu-
dents felt that working did not inter-
fere with school, only with their social
life. But, after all, whe taken t serious-
ly, working is more than just a job!

Gainesville's reputation as a col-
lege town helped to attract many
performers to the O'Connell Center
for concerts. From Conway Twitty to
the Red Hot Chili Peppers there
were concerns to appeal to every-
one's taste. Several groups who
came to town brought with them
years of musical experience. The
Beach Boys and Moody Blues con-
certs were attended by both old
and new fans. In some families these
groups were a tradition.
The Monkees accompanied the
resurrection of their television show
with a national concert tour. The
Monkees were originally actors por-
traying musicians in a take-off of the
popular Beatle movies. Their popu-
larity grew and they evolved into a
legitimate band.
And, of course, Jimmy Buffet
made his annual appearance in
Concert goers ranked crowd par-
ticipation as important in the music
experience. "If the crowd doesn't
respond then the bands never come
back to Gainesville, and they'll tell
other groups that this is a waste
town,"Angie Walker said.
Some fans thought the crowds
could get out of hand. "Sometimes
the crowd doesn't care so much for
the band and they just spend their
time throwing up on other people,"
said Patricia Moser after a particular-
ly close call.

Every year in October students,
alumni, and Gator fans of all ages
anxiously await the University of
Florida's Homecoming. This year's

Gator Gallop. The parade came

enthusiasm of the crowd was not
Later that evening the skies
cleared for the world's largest stu-

of over 40,000. The band played the
Gator fight song, and the cheer-
leaders had the audience cheering

hilarious performance by comedian
Billy Crystal. "He was better-actu-

firework and laser show ended
Growl, and the Gators triumphed
49-9 over Kent tate tihe next day.
