THE BAYTOWN SUN Sunday. August 23. 1987 1-B REL 'classic' '87 yearbook wins awards By MARY SATTERWHITE When the Robert E. Lee High School yearbook staff decided last August on the theme for its 1987Traveler, "A Classic Year," they had no idea how classic the year and the yearbook would be. The school year began as usual, but ended with a devastating fire. The fire caused an upheaval at the 58-year-old school and made finishing the yearbook close to impossible. The yearbook classroom was located on the first floor of the main building, across from the 'guidance offices. Ann Soulios, yearbook adviser, said they lost layout forms and hard copies, every negative, all their darkroom supplies and equipment and their computer and computer programs. Ms. Soulios said luckily most of the pages had been sent to the printer. "1 thought the day of the fire that the whole junior section was gone because I knew they were all in a drawer ready to be sent." Ms. Soulios said. "We were just proofing those. 1 ran into a section editor (she happened to be at the fire) and she said 'I took them all home for proofing.' so we only lost one page of the Juniors. We had to have it reprinted." Kelley Hawks, yearbook editor-in-chief, said in all only two or three pages had to be reprinted. Ms. Soulios said the sports section was a challenge because they lost all their baseball pictures, and the school only had one game left to shoot pictures of to use in the vear- book. Even though the students in the yearbook class had lost their school and most of their equipment, they hadn't lost their determination to finish the yearbook on time. Ms. Soulios said she explained to the students the problems they were up against and ''we either do it or wo don'! do it " She said they agreed to KELLEY HAWKS, left, editor-ln-chlef of the 19W-87 Robert E. Lee High School Traveler yearbook and Ann Soullo*, yearbook adviser, display the '8T7 yearbook, "The Classic Year," and the Partnership in Excellence PICA Award. The award, won by the Traveler staff for meeting deadlines, Is sponsored by Josten's, publisher of the yearbook. (Sun staff photo by Angle Bracey) finish it and worked really hard. Because of their efforts. "A Classic Year" was awarded the Golden Galleon Award for outstanding contributions to journalism and the Partnership in Excellence PICA Award for meeting deadlines. Both awards are sponsored by Josten's. publisher of the yearbook. This is the first time The Traveler has won these awards. "The PICA Award, we couldn't have received if we hadn't met the deadlines and that's unusual considering the circumstances we were under." .Ms. Soulios said. Ms Hawks said the move to Ross S. Sterling High School was a "big hassle." because the students had to share a room. "Whenever we came over here HSS'. Sterling let us use their stuff 'darkroom supplies i. which was very nice of them." Ms. Soulios said. "We had to buy very little to finish up. All the kids made a supreme effort." When the school year begins. REL and RSS will again share a classroom. "It will be a; lot of work because all our work will be done in one class period." Ms. Hawks said. "We usually have two class periods <a day to work on yearbooks)." Ms. Soulios and Ms. Hawks are both looking forward to the move back to REL later in the year. Ms. Hawks said, "It will be great to be there and get to finish. It will feel good to be back home.' 1 Ms. Soulios remarked she could "hardly wait" to get back. "Now that we have these awards, we would like to have a wall to hang them on." The '87 yearbook is the largest yearbook edition in the history of the school. It has 248 pages with an additional 8-page color supplement of the fire located in the back of the book in place of the index. It has six main sections which include student life, academics, clubs and organizations, sports, people and advertising. There were 858 books printed. The cover design has a color photo of several seniors, dressed in formals and standing in front of REL, leaning against two classic Corvettes, a '69 and '87 models. Pictures of old cars are used throughout the book carrying out the classic theme. Included in the yearbook are several feature sections, including those on General and Miss REL (Chris Grooms and Patrice Hornberger) and other popular favorites. On one section, the spotlight is turned on twins on campus. The front pages, printed before the fire, display pictures of the school describing it as classic architecture and standing proudly welcoming students since 1929. The supplement shows pictures of the destructed fire and its results on what was once a proud "Classic Lee." Public response on the '87 yearbook has been favorable. Ms, Hawks said several teachers commented that it was the best they had ever seen. Stephenie Fischer, a junior, said "The fire is so sad. but I think it (yearbook) looks good." Thomas Truitt, a sophomore, said "1 think it's great. This is my first one. but it won't be my last." Ms. Hawks said next year's yearbook theme is still being discussed. "We will have to do something new to top this yearbook. We will try to make the next one a much better one." Ms. Soulios said. "I don't think we will ever have a book sale like this one because of the fire."

But. of today's 29-year-olds. "S percent have married, of the 35-year- olds. 85 percent have married and of women who have reached 40. 93 percent have married This pattern is expected to continue, according to Dr. Robert Sclbert. vice president of the Futures Research Division at Security Pacific National Bank in Los Angeles. "The single movement of unmarried, cohabilating couples declined last year for the first time since the phenomenon was first counted in 1977. Live-ins today consider their arrangement to be 'trial' marriages." As for the trend toward traditional weddings, it's harder to quantify but unmistakable. The career bride has not only the increased budget but greater sophistication. Wedding planners, gown designers, bridal shops and suppliers and florists (U.S. retail sales of cut flowers increased from $2.9 billion in 1981 to $3.7 billion in 1»85) all report brides' emphasis on romance. In addition. Selbert believes, "because of a major shift in popular sentiment that has been building for years, but is todav being accelerated by (ear of disease •• however well- or ill- founded i. the moral, ethical. spiritual and therefore ceremonial aspects of marriage will be more emphasized in the future " This also is an era where there is strong emphasis on chamber m u s i c. b r a s s e n s e m b 1 e s. classical guitars and flutes The guitar ceremonies of the '60s are fading fast Instead, stands a s t r o n g n e e d f o r q u a 111 y. sophistication, sell-expression and a desire to exhibit one's own identity through the staging of !be wedding ceremony and reception Brides-to-be are finding themselves m either or.e of four categories dramatic, natural, classic or romantic While no one seems to fall 100 percent in any one category, everyone tends to lean toward one dominant aspect of their personality m Hie development of the wedding program In the May issue of Modern Bride. Phoenix-based image consultant Sherry Solheim stressed the importance of finding oneself before planning a wedding, "so the wedding reflects the bride's true personality." she staled in a recent interview, "The chances of a mom and daughter having similar tastes are slim and none. Most daughters do not want to wear their mom's dress, for instance. They'd prefer to pick their own special wedding gown. It's OK. As an image consultant my job has been to help people realize there isn't a right or wrong. The decision is totally a matter of personal preference." explained Solheim. Other trends associated with weddings include: • Young couples who have lived together are receiving an endorsement and feeling of acceptance from their families now as- opposed to 10 or 20 years ago when living together was frowned upon. More weddings are taking place in churches, synagogues and cathedrals than in gardens or family homes. Garden settings and family homes are still popular during certain seasons and in Midwestern areas of the country. Daisies and carnations are out, More expensive imported flowers are in. as are free-form bouquets. Bold and dramatic are being demonstrated through black or scarlet red bridesmaids' gowns. This only is appropriate in a formal, dramatic, elegant evening setting. Other bright and contrasting colors also are being used by the bolder brides. Fabrics for these bold ladies are straight-lined, stiff, stark and heavy. Natural brides are leaning toward harmonizing, neutral and blending tones. Romantic brides are selecting pastel florals, especially pinks, purples and baby blues, with fabrics finely woven, lighter weight, gathers, tiers, lace and/or ruffles. Classic brides wrap their weddings around muted, subtle colors (dusty cranberry, gray, raspberry, mauve, rose or sleel blue).

Heel pain can start from a whole lot more than jumping off a 10 foot ledge onto your foot. So many times patients will simply say "one morning I stepped out of bed on my heel and I saw stars.'' Heel pain is usually a sudden development brought on for many different reasons. Many types of arthritis from rheumatoid to "wear and tear" arthritis can cause sudden deep heel pain. Lots of times after many years a bone spur develops that starts to dig into the fat around the heel and "wow" — that's a pain one doesn't forget too quickly. Yet heel pain can be treated easily, effectively, relieving the pain and tenderness almost as soon as it begins. Heel pain sufferers don't despair — there are pills, injections, orthotics, and other methods to get you back on your feet feeling great, if your heels need healing, give us a call. Dr. I.C.
