Transcript C losing of the 80s Droughts laid havoc on the farmers of the Mid-West. AP photo. Down this path into the 1980's we treked, facing walls of flame, bearing loads of blame. Momentary relief sprung from our path. It arrived with the promises of a lone ranger striding in from the west; he offered to put us back into the saddle. His administration, coated with Teflon was ridden with scandle. The world's largest volunteer army possessed $300 hammers. Our decade trek pained from more than strangling costs. Lives were lost to mad- bombers who would claim martyrdom for their efforts. Later we embraced the man who breathed reform into the cool Soviet system. Some to loved him — others wis- pered "Beware Russians bearing freedom." We passed, as we went, homeless faces in a nation of plenty. AIDS marked the plague of the 80's. Drugs were sold and people died in view of the Capital's steps. Children disappeared — others beaten beyound recognition. Schools suffered for the benefit of new prisons. Priorities were some how lost along our journey. A continued Republican reign saw no change, except for those who needed it least, even as anti-Reagan slogans dried on the streets. It is said our path leads forward; we are not so sure! Our path came to a familiar point: we had accomplished little in health for the poor, many are still homeless, and world peace is still a hand shake away. But, at least during this age of confusion hope still shines. Agreements for the eradication of a class of nuclear weapons was signed — and they were destroyed. Communisim embraced capitalistic principles. Change was ever present on our journey through the decade of the 80's, and just as vital and lively on our path into the 1990's. ► Allen Manning Rescuers save two of three whales trapped in Alaskan ice.

There are some people that have asked me many times why I am still in school at my age! My reply is this: Everyday that I live, I learn something, it may be great and it may be small, but I feel that the day I stop learning is the day that I will die.
