Are we really that wild? 4 Student Life by Kelly Koutny What do we mean by a bit on the wild academics, classmates,student life . side? We mean the students are crazy about sports, 42 People For example, in the sports section any stranger attending one of our pep rallys before a big game that night would have their socks knocked off by the enthusiasm and school spirit. It’s not just the athletic players but the total envolvment of the students that make sports at Prairie Higha bit on the wild side. Most students in this day and age know 82 Academics - i i i 104 Mini-Mag 112 Sports SWEDEN 1 i that a good education will be an important part of their lives, but even readin , riting and rithmetic (ha ,ha) can be fun if you have the right attitude and when you ’re working with your classmates. Almost all ofus haveexperienced the personal satisfaction of raising a grade, not only B 's to A’s but even D’s to C’s. 1 bet all of us can look back and remember our first day ofschool. Afraid and feeling so alone because you didn’t know anyone. Through the years as your interest grew and changed so did your friends. Some of our friendships were short-lived and others had continued year after year. Now as a Senior looking back on that frightened little girl. I wonder what my future will be without the closeness and support of some of the best friends I ever had. Although many of us will not see our friends in the future, we will never forget them. Remember how your parents are always 150 Ads 160 Index 2 A Bit on the Wild Side 102 A Bit on the Wild Side A Bit on the Wild Side 103 104 A Bit on the Wild Side A Bit on the Wild Side 105 106 A Bit on the Wild Side telling you these are the best years of your life-for once they just might be right. Who can forget breakin , parachuet pants, clogs, friendship pens on your shoes,knitted string around your wrist and don’t forget about the spiked hair cuts. Any new fad that came along, we jumped in with both feet . Then came the elegance and excitement of our first prom. We went from wild and crazy, too dignified and mature, seemingly overnight. This is why you would describe us as a bit on the wild side.

5- Minute Traffic Jam! An alternative to recess ... PASSING TIME by Shariene Nichols A lot of students would agree that passing time was the best part of school. Friends gather at their lockers, boyfriends and girlfriends meet. There’s always yelling , running , and pushing going on . There are a few peoplein thisschool whoare famous for stopping in the middle of the hall to talk to friends. They really know how toannoy us. The halls were always so crowded.You get used to walking byor bumping into the same people every day. Five minutes passing time seems hardly enough if you have to gofrom the math wing to English or downstairs to woods, metals, or autos. Lockers can be pretty interesting. Students decorate them with pictures offriends , goodlooking members of the opposite sex , mirrors, pencil holders, etc. Most students have shelves put up in their lockers to hold books and notebooks. These shelves are believed to be the cause of locker jams. There are always a few students who like to keep their lockers nice and tidy. Maybe they have nothing better to do. Beth Elliff , soph., at her locker during passing time. Hi ho! hi ho! It’s off to class we go. 6 A Bit on the Wfld Side Eanie meanie miny mo, which one of these books has to go?

CTTO We made a dream true by Kelly Koutny The dream became true with old fashionedfun, when every one in the community contributed to the new playground. The play - ground is the first of its kind in Cedar Rapids. Only about 350 of these playgrounds exist in this country. The architect for this project was Robert Leathers, known na tion wide for his creative play grounddesigns.Fifteen yearsago he built his first playgroundalong with volunteered parents. After discovering the high cost for equipment he gathered donated and recycled lumber . After a Cor nell student invited him to build a playground in Long Island his career was launched. Leathers has been involved in three hundred and fifty play - i - - Elementary children enjoying the new playground that the community built. - - - grounds including the furniture for the Giant pandas atWashing ton National Zoo. The building process has been refined,it use to take Leathers fifteen weekends to build, now it can be done in four and a half days. If we were to contract to build this playground it would of cost one hundred and twenty thousand dollars, but with the general help ofCollege Com - munity and Cedar Rapids residents the cost was greatly, greatly reduced. So as you can see the College Community playground project has made a dream come true for the children and students that have had a chance to play on it. 12 A Bit on the Wild Side What a heavy load!!

in the 50's by Kelly Koutny In the 1950’s the cost of a movie and getting something to eat would cost you between one and five dollars at the most, depending on where you eat. Now for the average couple going out on a date depending on what you do will cost you on a average of twenty dollars. For example, going to a movie for two people will cost you nine dollars. Then you probably go eat some where which will cost around ten dollars. Imagine what it will cost for a date in the year 2000! 16 A Bit on the Wild Side

The Good 01’ Days. . . Remember the first day of High School? Most of us, as Sophomores, were more nervous then we were our first day of Kindergarten. Most of us as Sophomores were afraid of the Juniors and Seniors and seem to learn how to dodge them in the hallway, but after the first few weeks of school everyone seems to learn how to fit in with everyone else. A year older and a little bit wiser, Juniors, we begin to feel a little more con dent and maybe just a little more cocky th before. The only thing on the minds Juniors at this point is that next year, with little luck, they will be SENIORS!!! Finally senior year comes and everyone all excited they made it to their senior ye Then everything calms down until about last quarter of school and graduation is up us all. Then when the actual day of gradu tion comes around, everyone is glad to done with school , but will miss all of th friends when everyone goes their separ ways the next year at college.

uWHEN I’M WITH YOU” The Biggest Event of the Year. by Shaiiene Nichols There was excitement in the air on the evening ofMay 13, 1989. For most of us this meant the biggest event of the year. A night ofelegance to be remembered by the theme, “ When I’m with you,” by SherrifF. The Iowa Hall was beautifully decorated for this occasion with black, deep purple, and silver balloons and streamers from Balloon Emporium. Prom was carefully planned by junior class sponsors Mr. Craig Jelinek and Mr. Mick Mattiace. As junior class officers, Jenny Weldon and Chad Schleuter also dedicated themselves to making this a most memorable night. The food servers were members of the sophomore class. At 8:15 p.m. the hall started to fill with the most lavish dresses and handsome tux - edos. Everyone looking their very best was anxiously awaiting the grand march which began at 8:30 p.m. The couples put on their biggest smiles as they proudly strutted down the narrow space given by curious bystanders and parents with -cameras. The couples danced to their favorite tunes played by a DJ from 105.7. Some were cooling down with some punch or stopped to have a piece of cake. The line for pictures seemed to never give up. This year students could sign up ahead of time for an appointment to have their pictures taken. With the expensive dinner reservations, the grand march, pictures taken, and dancing, the night seemed to be going swiftly. The party given to say goodbye to the senior class of ’89 was soon over. The beautifui, expensive attire was taken off and replaced by jeans, shorts, and T-shirts as everyone headed for a great time at Chapman’s Fun World for post prom. Friends gather on the dance floor to boogie. 34 A Bit on the Wild Side

OUR ENVIRONMENT Our Environment is something we take for granted every day. Our planet is a unique part of the solar system. Earth is the only planet capable of sustaining life. We are protected by a complex system of layers called the atmosphere. Avery important part of the atmosphere that is receiving a lot of attention is the Ozone layer. It screens the sun’s ultra-violet rays. It warms and cools found in such Tioles above the north the earth. But because of an intolerable use of chloroflourocarbons, everyday items as aerosol cans, styrofoam, and leaky automobile air conditioners; the Ozone layer has deteriorated and there are already two growing' and south poles.Ifsomething isn’t done soon to put an end to this deterioration,the planet will continue to warm, as a result of the This isn’t the only problem facing us. Because of improper disposal of human waste, use of lethal pesticides, and illegal dumping of toxic waste, our water supply is becoming undrinkable. Many industries illegally dump thier toxic wastes in rivers,lakes, and the ocean. Even if they are caught , ment facilities. The raw sewage is seeping into the ground water, poisoning the community. Farmers use toxic pesticidesthat also eventually find thier way to our drinking water. Because of all this, the people who drink the water are becoming sick. Cancer develops.Unborn children die. Birth defects are common in infants.Infant mortality rates soar. Unless the government becomes tougher, and forces these industries to clean up thier act, the problem will become worse. By trying to achieve a better standard of living, we have endangered our own lives. Think about that the next time you spray your hair, crank your air conditioner, or order a Big Mac. If we all work together, maybe we can stop the damage being done to our environment. the fines they must pay are only a percentage of thier profits.

Spill in Alaska On March 24th, 1989 a national disaster occurred in Valdez, Alaska. A 987 ft. Exxon oil tanker struck a reefon the outside of their normal shipping grounds. This caused oil to spill on to the shorelines and in to the water. Over 10 million gallons of oil poured into in the Prince William Sound. Causing the wprst oil spill in the nations history. Fishermen have lost over a million dollars , and the wildlife in the area is suffering very badly. The loss is well over 1.000. Congress and Exxon are working together to help clean up the oily mess.Fire hoses are being used to rinse off the coast, leaning over 300 miles of beaches. But , the tides, winds, and currents will help to take eare of mostof it . Even though the spill occurred in Alaska, people all over the nation are feeling the crush of the spill. Gas prices rose from $. 93 to $1.15 or higher. Critics say that it is unlikely that the prices will rise above $1.35. SKINHEADS They shave thier heads . They wear heavy black combat boots. Most are poor, high school drop outs, that can not find work. And they are usually between the ages of ISIS.Theyare the skinheads, thefastest growing gang on America’s streets. The gangs are most popular in the south (where most KKK movements still live on), and on the coasts. Thier growing popularity has appealed to many prejudiced American citizens. As in most gangs, the members have no family,or come from abusive parents. So they turn to thier peers for comfort and support. They follow pretty much the same beliefs as Hitler, or the Klu Klux Klan . Believing that white it the superior race, and minorities (homosexuals, blacks, etc . . . ) are inferior.

l ^WWWWWWWVWSWWUWWUWWWWWVSMWrtrtMWUyWWWSWW/VWVWWUWWWWWWVS/VySMW # Co-Editors Kirsten Knowlton and Bridget Homrighausen 1989 Comes To An End by Bridget Homrighausen Kirsten Knowlton For many the 1988-1989 school year will be just another passing year. It started , it happened, it ended-and over time it will be forgotten. But for seniors it will be unique, and a year to remember. The seniors will leave behind the crowded halls, the races off to lunch, and the memories. Memories of prom, homecoming, and their relationships with friends, and teachers. Each year peoples relationships change. The best friend that a person had in elementary, could end up being a distant stranger in high school . When people grow older, thier interests change so their friendships must adapt to these change. After graduation everyone will be moving on , starting different futures. Most people will be in college. Some will be working full time, and a few will be getting married in the next few years. Whichever path you choose, we wish you the best of luck with it . ^WAWWrtrtWfWWWWWWVWWWWWWWWWWWWWWrfWWWWVWWWAfWWrtJWWWWWWW • A Bit on the Wild Side 173
