We lived in a time when the worries seemed
insurmountable; why was that new kid smiling at
me; how late will that English paper be accepted? ,,
The challenges of every day living at times appeared
unbearable, but their triviality was realized as each
day wore on.
We were at an age when all the world awaited
discovery, nothing was final, everything was to be
questioned. Youth permeated from every pore:
pimples, hormones, energy, humor.
We surged with feelings of confusion, excite-
ment, wonder, magic. A myriad of emotions blended
together to create the average mood-swings of ado-
lescence. Every moment of the school day alluded to
surprise, every period presented a challenge, every
lunch time evolved into a social extravaganza.
The daily life of each individual P.K. Yonge stu-

Cliques were not only abundant but now had creative names
like the "Bad Dogs" and the "B.S.G.'s". Students widely
participated in extracurricular activities and sports while
trying to balance heavy school work and sometimes even a
job. Always having a great time, students also capitalized on
the easy grading and lax discipline. The administration.
however, was not so slack about the attendance and tardy
policy. If even a second late, Mrs. Parker would always have
a yellow tardy slip ready for your admission to class. Close
to home, students had to deal with the threat of AIDS, preg-
nancy, drug abuse, and violence. On a national level, the OJ.
Simpson Not-Guilty verdict brought attention to racial issues.
Some asked, "What has this world come to?" others were glad
for the semi-sheltered life P.K. offered. -grant Cooper

Spirit Week, a time old tradition
around the country, presented
varied themes from Clash Day to
Pajama Day, but always included a Spirit
Day. Student council chose Clash Day,
Twin Day, Pajama Day, Vogue Day, and
Spirit Day. Many students chose not to
participate in the various displays of spirit.
On the other hand, many students did
participate, and Spirit Week was a rousing
success, culminating in a victory at the
homecoming football games. Seniors
Melissa Gratto and April Davison were
twins again (aren't they always?). On Clash
Day, Olivia Ervin (freshman) managed to
get more colors on at one time than anyone
else. Students enjoyed dressing for success
on Vogue Day. Pajama Day provided for a
lot of comfortable students, what would
school be like if every day were pajama
day? Michelle McElroy exclaimed, "That
would be great!" -Billy Boulware

Freshman Olivia Ervin is doing her
best to beat the world's record for the
most colors worn at once for clash day.
Clash day was a time for students to
wear those ever annoying gifts that
you could never return.

H homecoming, a time of
laughter, a time of tears, a
time for friends, and a time
for memories. The Homecoming tradition
of King, Queen, Prince and Princess was
also a rising success. Heather Harford,
Homecoming Princess said, "It was pretty
cool" referring to being nominated and voted
Princess. John Walker said, "Being chosen
as prince was the best thing that could have
happened to me," as he kissed Heather on
the cheek. Walter Booth and Tori Player,
who were the king and queen, felt very
confident as they marched down the aisle
during High Tide, although it was a close
race for who would be chosen as King and
Queen. Cam Brewer, the Sophomore class
heart-throb, found it intriguing to be on
stage in a tux. Jessica Rhodes, the sopho-
more class Sweetheart, liked all the glamour
involved. The junior class heart-throb, Are
Thue-Jones, and Sweetheart Andrea Preisler
thought, "It was really cool to be up there."

with his princess, and all the
entertaining skits: all equal a night of fun
and magic we call High Tide. High Tide, a
a long-time tradition, was a pep rally that
dated back before bell bottoms (the first
ones). It was student organized with a little
help from the teachers, and was a success
considering the little planning that went
into it. Emcees Johnny Walker and Ben
Sharp kept the audience entertained with
impersonations of Forest Gump and Stewart
Smalley. Most of the skits were good and
required a lot of effortbut the favorite among
students and teachers was Case Calkins
imitating Ms. Parker. Everything he said
was oh so true! Immediately following
High Tide everyone headed up to the field
for the bonfire. The fire lasted only a short
time before Mr. McCall quickly put an end
to our fun. -Cortnee Nielsen

S students at other high schools
complained that the selection of
-potential flirtees was too big. Here
the selection did have a limit which satisfied
some students and dissatisfied others. Those
students who were satisfied enjoyed their
flirting relationships. But those who were
dissatisfied either stayed single or went out
and selected beyond the Blue Wave. Others
were already involved in a long lasting
'c relationship, so they didn't need to worry
about the limit of people they had to flirt
with. Most students had different opinions
concerning flirting. Senior Yoleth Handal
confirmed, "I am FAITHFUL to my
boyfriend, so flirting is not my style."
Common to Yoleth's opinion senior Meghan
McGuire confirmed, "I feel that flirting is a
childish waste of time." Not everybody
agreed with their opinions. Levon Davis
explained, "Flirting is a way to get to know
the girls ." -Silohe Lozada

Junior Michelle McDaniel and senior Charlie Leath are
enjoying one another's company. This was a perfect
example of flirting.

hanging cut


When most people think about
cliques they think of middle school, but in
high school there were cliques too. A
"clique" was a close group of friends who
mainly hung out with just those people.
There were many types of cliques that could
range from preppy, to hippy, to home, and
so on. Often these cliques gave themselves
names like the BAD DOGS, and the B.S.G.'s.
B.S.G. member Are Thue -Jones described,
"Being in a clique is phat because you have
close friends that you can rely on." Senior
Omar Khan stated, "I know that I will
always have my friends (The BAD DOGS)
to hang out with, and I enjoy a good B.S.G.
whipping once in a while." Although most
students may not have known it, anyone
who had friends was in their own little
clique. Being in a clique seemed to give
students many opportunities to have fun
as well as a sense of friendship that could
last a lifetime. Jason Lumley-Anthony

Woofers, tweeters amps and crossovers

are just a few terms students became famil-

iar with while dealing with car stereos. Many
students had cars. A lot of those cars had

stereos. But it was a growing trend to add a
"system" to your ride. A system could be

defined as any non-stock stereo and usually

involved after-market speakers, amplifiers

and sometimes a totally separate subwoofer.

Subwoofers were speakers designed to play

only the lower range frequencies, and add

fuller, deeper and louder bass to your listen-

ing experience. Over the course of the year

the question arose, whose system was the

loudest? Senior Omar Khan unanimously

won the loudest system award. He did it

with an ingeniously installed pair of Kicker

competition 12 inch woofers and a mere 600

watt amplifier. The bass could be heard for

blocks and the entire school always knew

when Omar was in transit. When asked to

comment he stated, "I like to feel the music,

not just hear it." -Grant Cooper

Amusing lyrics cause junior Matt Frank to smile widely.
Here Frank had a CD player, but he planned to also
upgrade his speakers when his cash flow permitted.

Skipping, a tradition among students from
Gainesville to Zimbabwe, was one of great
planning and skill. Trying to avoid Ms.
Parker and Ms. Richardson while still try-
ing to maintain some dignity among your
peers was often challenging. Skipping was
simply a method many students found to
relieve stress and get away from the daily
boredom of classes. Students had many
different thoughts about skipping class,
but most agreed that it was a necessity to
prevent possible insanity. Kameron
Robinson, junior, commented, "It's no fun
skipping at P.K. because it is too easy." Are
Thue-Jones, also a junior, agreed that skip-
ping was easy, but added that he did it on
the average of once a week. Despite the
consequences and perils of skipping there
also came a feeling of freedom and excite-
ment. This was the reason the tradition of
skipping class was preserved with the help
of our generations. -Andrea Preisler

Students had very different feelings
about shopping. The majority of
guys did not enjoy shopping. Guys
usually had no choice, simply because their
girlfriends drug them along. "I'd rather be
doing something constructive than walking
around from store to store with Kristina,"
whined Junior Brian Dougherty. "Shop-
ping Sucks!" screamed senior Eric Matheny.
But of course, every girl liked to shop as
long as there was time and money. Junior
Michelle McElroy said, "I shop when I have
time." Everyone shops for different rea-
sons. Most people shopped when they were
upset and wanted to treat themselves. A lot
of students shopped right after they had
gotten paid and their money was burning a
hole in their pocket. Others, like Junior
Laura Thompson shopped because, "Shop-
ping, for me, is a great stress reliever!" For
some shopping was their life. Senior Stella
Stevens, exclaimed, "I shop therefore I am!"
-Cortnee Nielsen

Teddy bears, cars, trucks, and
computers were just a few of the
many toys that we played with
throughout our childhood and well into
adulthood. When we were little we had
stuffed animals to comfort us at night and
Tonka trucks to play with during the day. As
we grew older, we found new and more
inventive toys such as automobiles and
persons) of the opposite sex. During class,
students often avoided work by playing
with such toys. Among many students,
Garfield was the mack daddy of all stuffed
animals. Garfield was obtained during the
FSPA conference, through the covert actions
of JonHarben. Sophmore Cam Brewer stated,
"When I was little I enjoyed playing with
G.I. Joes. Now I just play with footballs and
baseballs!" Ms. Reynolds was often heard
screaming "Don't use my slinky as a
weapon!" Junior John Harrison exclaimed,
"The best toy I ever received during my
childhood was a Wrist Rocket Sling Shot."
-Billy Boulware

Excuses, excuses, excuses, that
was all teachers heard from the
students that were not on task.
The excuses ranged from old ones like,
"My dog ate my homework," to new
technologically advanced ones like, Karoline
Hatfield-Kranicz's favorite, "My Macintosh
ate it." Sophomore Kenny Mukasa
promised, "I forgot it at home. I'll make
sure to bring it tomorrow." Most teachers
would not take any excuse unless it seemed
very reasonable. Students not only used
excuses for homework, but for tardies as
well. Senior Jessica Cherena pleaded
innocently,"My car ran out of gas so I had
to walk to school." Even though teachers
usually didn't believe these or any other
excuses, it never stopped students from
coming up with new ones to use. Senior
Sushaill Handal confessed "Sometimes
excuses are necessary when you don't do
the work you were supposed to do."

Polyester, baby T's, bell bottoms,
jean skirts, platforms, and the
return of jelly shoes. What do all
of these things have in common? They're all
funky fashion trends. You've all seen them
and most have probably participated in
them. Junior April Seymour commented,
"The eleventh and the ninth grades seemed
like the biggest participants of fashion
trends." Many students agreed that bell
bottoms were one of the least liked trends
and anything denim was one of the longest
lasting fashion trends. Many students
participated in fashion trends unknowing of
the response they would receive from their
peers. Junior Jennifer Morgan explained,
"I'm embarrassed when I think about how
I used to wear tight leggings with skirts."
Whether we like them or not, fashion trends
will be around for years to come so.... hurry
up, get out there and buy that plastic, purple

leed me!

I t's lunch time and your stomach is
growling but what and where do you
eat? Students had many different
answers to this question. The lunchroom
offered little variety especially since they
started serving only one kind of lunch,
instead of pizza, as an alternative each day.
Because of the new requirement to serve
only full meals, many students opted to
bring their lunch. Seniors were the lucky
ones for they were allowed to go off campus
for lunch. Junior Daniella Kesler
commented, "I don't eat cafeteria food
because my mom makes my lunch for free.
I love my mom!" Some juniors were able to
get food from off campus, as junior Scott
Webb confessed, "I'm not a senior yet so I
get seniors to bring food back to me." The
seniors enjoyed going off campus as Cedar
Lane expressed, "El Toro is the place to eat
because it's cheap and they have excellent
salsa." Jason Lumley-Anthony

our school as five- and six-

we were dreaming of the day

we would be seniors. Well,

that year came, and there are

many memories. Walter

long nap times, and seven-

Lindberg's favorite grade was

sixth because, "That was the

year you found friends that

been twelve long years, but

our group of Lifers have got-

ten many good times and

friends from the experience.

From kids to adults, we

Before our junior year,
life was easy. The future of
our education was the fur-
thest from our minds. The
only thing we had to worry
about was whether or not the
cute guy we saw at the mall
was going to call. Everything
drastically changed. The
world of the A.P. class had
been thrown into the loop,
and suddenly college around
the corer.
With the load being so
demanding and responsibil-
ity growing us up, certain life
decisions were at hand.
Dropping out became an ap-

,pealing option. However, we
only had a year left before we
got that little piece of paper
which at least proves we can
be in the system.
The other dilemma that
arose in our minds was our
youth. Why should we spend
our days locked up in a class-
room for the majority of the
primes of our lives? No mat-
ter how tempting it would
have been to give up, we
realized that some things
were worth sacrificing to en-
sure a future, to get to the
luxuries life has to offer.

My experience as a "Age

old stereotype that freshmen
were the "new guys" and that
they were forever lost in the frier

intimidating school was not cone
really enforced at P.K. I was .. ..
at GHS for a while, and the
stereotype that all freshmen were
worthless and should be subject to
satire and trickery was heavily
emphasized there. The teachers often
let out a sigh that sounded like the
word "Freshman" whenever a stupid
question was asked.
The only lore of this kind I came
across at P.K. was that the top field





didn't play was infected, and you
got nasty rashes from
nuch of a laying in it. At GHS,
everything was talked
as far as
about, including the
ids were mystery teacher who
blew up their lab (yes,

I have to say, age
didn't play that much of a role as far as
friends were concerned, or other
relationships for that matter. The
Freshmen stereotype was an old-school
ideal and outdated. Only those few who
were conservative often believed that
age was a way to separate classmates,
but the truth is... it wasn't.

Marika Springer takes a writing
exam. Eighth graders took many
writing classes in preparation for
high school and college.

Basically, life as an
eighth grader is pretty
good. We over-rule the oth-
ers (the sixth and seventh
graders). We have some
special privileges such as
getting out 2 minutes early
for lunch. Whenever we
have an assembly or some-
thing in the auditorium we
get dismissed first. Being
in the eighth grade we get
to play sports like basket-
ball, baseball, and all the
others. Also we can get a
chance to become a part of
the Student Government.
Only eighth graders can
run for president. Life as
an eighth grader is pretty
darn good when it's your
last year in middle school.

There are also many
things bad about being an
eighth grader. Teachers
think more highly of you,
so they expect a better stan-
dard out of you and they
feel they should challenge
you more. They have to
give you more work and
make sure you're doing a
good job. They say that
eighth graders should be
rolemodels for smaller kids
I guess it's all a part of
growing up. So, indeed,
there are many good and
bad things about being in
the eighth grade. All in all,
life as an eighth grader is
pretty decent. I wouldn't
want to go through it again.

We believed we could change the
world. Love. Peace. The Beatles. Flow-
ers and hair. We rode the tide of social
Civil Rights. I remember the ex-
citement and terror of sit-ins. "We shall
overcome We shall overcome."
Feminism. Consciousness-raising
groups. We women redefined ourselves.
We burned bras and bridges and sported
new rules for age-old games. Music,
costume, communes, the war. The
foucus was ever on the power: the giddy,
whirwind power of youth, "We can
change the world, rearrange the world."
These days the fever has abated.
The music takes on an ominous tone,
and power is a lot more personal. The
cocky assurances of youth are shaded
with cynicism. There are no assured
routes to success and fervor seems quaint
and naive.
The opiates of easy pleasure-diugs,
"free" love, TV--undermine resolve and
sidetrack ambition. Fast food, fast com-
munication, fast cars, fast homework.
We replace not repair; and new ideas,
like fashion, have their moment.
But time gives perspective and
history has yet to pronounce judgment.
This new age may yet provide a synthe-
ses, a blending of colors, a new vision. In
the very turmoil of an age lies its energy
and persistence. These yong people have
strong hands.

The best way I can think to de-
scribe what it was like to live in the
eighties is to tell of some things that
happened during that decade.
It was a decade that was trying to
recover from the emptiness of the sev-
enties. We experiminted for a fashion
statement that moved away from bell
bottoms, large collars, and long hair.
The fashion trends of the eighties moved
toward a more conservative look that
ranged from tight fitting designer jeans
to baggy shirts and sweat suits.
The item that symbolized the eight-
ies was a little alien creature trying to
find its way home. It still holds records
for being one of the largest grossing
films ever made. That simple little Ex-
tra-Terrestrial (E.T.) showed us how, at
the beginning of the eighties, America
was trying to find an identity.
The seventies seemed like a pe-
riod of cluelessness. In order to find our
way home we elected a President who
told us how to be Americans; we made
money to buy our Americanism; and we
watched heroes in the movie that sym-
bolized our Americanism.
I do not know how better to de-
scribe the eighties but to say it was a
decade of moving in a different direc-
tion.. it may not have been the right
direction, but it was better than the stag-
nation of the seventies.

has been added to P. K. Yonge's experience. And another
sixty-one years are on the way. Athletic opportunitiesexist
for the youngest. 7th grade, and least skilled to those who
are skilled in several sports. Many of P. K. Yonge's athletes
have gone on to bigger and better things. Collegiate and
even professional athletic programs have seen quality
players come from this institution time and time again.
Names such as Willie Jackson and Chris Doering are
making their mark in the football world. While names like
Terry Jackson, Travis McGriff and Robert Baker are
beginning to rise as stars. P. K. Yonge sports has had a

varying grades participated in the theater

students back only what they are willing to

opportunity to overcome shyness, or stage
fright by putting on performances such as

see the audiences' reactions," said senior
Alex Hooper. Through performances they
put on, students applied the skills they had
learned in class to entertain the community
and school. "We do many on and off stage
activities in the Acting I class. Most of them
are fun to do and watch, and all of them help
the students to become better actors and
performers," Ms. Millisior said of her year's
activities.These creative activities ranged
from improvisations to monologues. The
free-ranging activities, and the many
freedoms gave acting its little structure;
acting proved to be one of the most enjoyed
classes that students took. -Robert Bell

discovered. Ms. Skye, the high school art
teacher hoped that by enrolling in art class,
students would be "participating in the
creative process," so that "appreciating art
becomes part of their lives." At the middle
school level, Ms. Springfield helped the
students extract the artist within
themselves. As Sara Nash said, "I love to do
anything, but I enjoy creating original pieces
of artwork most of all." Art students had the
opportunity to display their work in shows
such as the Reitz Union portfolio display
and the Spring Arts Festival. When asked to
give advice for aspiring artists, Ms. Skye
recommended, "Celebrate continually your
creative spirit." -Ryan Gause
