Recently a guy I work with told me about a documentary that a couple of his friends were doing that was really gaining some popularity - even from the original cast. Visit www.thegoonies.org to check it out, including this exclusive interview with Chunk recalling some of the perks of being a Goonie, even one-upping Rick Shroeder at an MJ concert.
Oh, and here's a seperate website that shows then & now pics of the Goonies.

Golf team will 'put experience' to work
The 1986 Golf team has experience in its favor this year, according to Coach David Robinson. After finishing second in the district and 10th in the state last year, Coach Robinson says the returning players make for "the most experienced team we've had in a while." "And," he continued, "we'd really be tough if we hadn't lost a key player to injury."
Top players returning include seniors Brent Caple, Jason Jordan and Chuck McCurdy, the coach says. Bryan Tygart, last year's number two player, is out with an injury. Robinson says he expects other team members to step in and "pick up the slack" in the place of Tygart.
Other team members are Steve Coleman, Jamey Black, Mark Mayfield, Trent Allen, Shawn Rash, Michael Ross, Brad LaRue, and the first femal team member, freshman Courtney Robinson.
The coach sees Miss Robinson as a welcome addition to the team and says he believes "she will work out well."
The team begins its season this week. A summary of the games will be in next weeks Sheridan Headlight.

Unfold the insert and you're tempted with several opportunities to feed the hungry in Africa while sporting the current 80's fashions.
Now, don't try to read the small print above, because I found a fun way to find out who all participated in this historic event... I'll show you at the end of this post. For now, below is the article I teased some time ago from the March 14, 1983 edition of Rolling Stone. This is a brief yet insightful write up about how "We Are the World" came to be. Click either image to enlarge & read.
Interesting, huh? Prince - hmphh! Who needs him anyway?! So, back to the album art. Take a look at the group shot below and try to identify some of the artists at this interactive guessing game.

Below are photos from the two-page spread featuring our 9th grade Stinger Cheerleaders.
The Stinger cheerleaders attended the NCA cheerleader camp at ASU. They were taught new cheers, chants, pyramids, pom pom routines, and spirit ideas. At the camp the Stinger cheerleaders won two excellent and three superior ribbons. Over 500 cheerleaders attended the camp and out of these, nine were selected as All American cheerleaders. Michelle Stoops was selected as one of the nine. The Stinger cheerleaders showed outstanding spirit and support for their team through pep rallies, banners, signs, parties, and selling spirit ribbons.

:: Ponch... Crissy... Gilligan... where are they now? Here.
:: And a web-museum for the idiot box.
:: Here's a good starting place to research your favorite shows from the 70's & 80's (did they even have tv in the 90's?)
:: What do Brady Bunch & Gilligan's Island have in common? Sherwood Schwartz. (Warning: this lengthy interview contains brief foul language)
:: Not directly tv-related... but has 80's all over it... here's a cover of Billie Jean done with 80's electronics. Nice vocals, too!

You can hear their acapella version of "Africa" on their MySpace page.
This next acapella choir was introduced to me just a few days ago. This group is amazing. From the unsuspecting beat boxer doing drum fills, to the lead melody line, to the phenomal SFX of rain and thunder at the beginning, you'll really enjoy this.
Ok, confession time. Here's my misunderstood lyric: "There's nothing that a hundred men on Mars could ever do."
Read the rest of the lyrics here.
