Hagan Terminates Open Lunch Privilege

By Karen Morison

Pacesetter Staff Writer

"The Open Lunch program is closed. We will be going back to a closed lunch"program. Students received this' loud speaker announcment from Principal John Hagan in their fifth period classes last Friday after a final warning1he previous day. Following this proclamation. SGApresident Jenny Ho!!kins came on the'speaker al1(l reported that the "SGA is in the process of finding some way to regain some form of Open Lunch. She continued by stating that there had been iumors of a student sit-in and pleaded, "Please do not do anything rash." Despite the rumors, ' there was no public protest. Hagan has made several warnings throughout the year, cautioning students that if their open lunch conduct did 'not improve, the privilege would be revoked. However, students' behavior after his "final" advisory last Thursday clinched the program's termination. "Seeing students 2S feet away from me disregarding my warning, ,checking 1.D.'8 and finding ten students without them, the call from Glendening, and the trash in the community" was the last straw. Hagan notiiied the student body that he had received a phone call from County Executive Parris Glefldening, telling him that a citizen had reponed almost hitling a Bowie student jaywalking across Rt. 450 during lunch. He adds, "I thought 1 was partially to blame because I gave too many warnings, and students didn't take me seriously." Hagan reported to the school the previous TueSday that an accident involving a student driver and pedestrian, sophomores Tim

Brown and Maryanne George, .respectively, reflected the ov~. irresponsible student driving during open lunch. Vice principal Greg Proctor backs Hagan fully. He states. "Mr. Hagan has put up With pressure. He's been the strongest supporter of Open Lunch." Senior Tammy Pett:rsC?n is not sUIprised by Hagan's decision. She remarks. "Sixteen, seventeen; and eighteen year-olds should have enough sense not to run across the street." Hagan comments that the Open Lunch program. which began in 1976 and has continued until now wiht only one interruption in 1986 where it was cancenedbecause of poor student cooperation from 'March until the end of the year "doesn't have to be over forever.'" "The SGA wants to negotiate Open Lunch, If they come up with

ways to better police themselves, then it can be reinstated," he states and adds that the program could begin in a revised manner this year. He also says he is ready to meet with the SGA "as soon' as they wan"" . SGA has held one meeting thusfar concerning alternative plans for Open Lunch. Hoskins remarks, "We're lear:ring to the possibility of having an open lunch with seniors aff campus only or a one hour open campus closed tunch. At the earliest we will meet with Hagan at the beginniJlg of next week" and "propose that after spring break we have a trial period." Hagan maintains that both of the SGA's prospective alternatives are "possibilities." However, he adds that the I'seniors were just as much a part of the problem as anyone."

Cafeteria Introduces Complete Salad Bar

Parent Strikes Back Against Unsafe Trucks By Shawn Montgomery Pacesetter Features Editor Bowie High students signed a petition pushing for the passage of legislation that would require annual truck inspections. A total of 2826 signatores, both students and parents;' were collected. Many students voiced the opinion that through signing the petiton perhaps a life would be saved. Mrs. Holmes, Christy Perry's mother presented the petition to the Senate Judiciary Committee in A!mapolis. Christy Perry's death was caused by a truck whose brakes failed. Mrs. Holmes is optimistic about the passage of the bill, "This has been the strongest push ever, I hope that it will pass." Signatures are still being collected; parents and students over the age of 16 ~ urged to sign. . Signatures collected will be mailed to legislatures througbout the month. If the bill passes it may be slightly rewritten. Mrs. Holmes would lilre to t.h3{lk: all of the students and parents who signed the petition. .

A state preventive maintenance program went into effect this month, but many.feel that this is not enough. Under the preventative maintenance program trucks that weigh more than 10,000 pounds must be checked for safety every 25,000 miles. The bill pushes for all trucks to be inspectedanmially. Trucks that don't reach thai millage within a year must be inspected annually. These inspections are to be done by the owner or operator of the vehicle. The owrier must certify in writing that the inspection has been completed and that the truck is in good working order. According to the P. G. Journal! .Walter C. Thompson, executive vice president of of the Maryland Motor Truc,k Association, opposes the bill. He feels thai the former state maintenance program will assure truck safety. Thompson also said that 92% ofalhccidents are caused by driver error and not by mechanical failure. This mayor may not be true but it is a fact that accidents that are caused by mechanical failUre are indeed tragic. Two examples are the 1986 accident on Good Luck Road that look the liv.es of two teenagers, and the death of Christy Perry.

It's Academic:

Sparks Student Interest By Keith Lively Paceseuer Staff Writer With the recent cancellation of Open Lunch, Bowie High students now have another reason to want to stay inside. The cafeteria has reopened the third serving line and turned it into a, salad bar. At the moment, the salad bar is on a six-week trial basis. The cafeteria staff is waiting to see if they will get enough support from the students and teachers. If the student count rises, then food service will give the cafetei:i.a staff more personnel, which will in tom allow them to improve on and offer more on the bar. For now the staff is working overtime but, they said they think the extra work is worth it. The cost is $1.30 for students and $2.10 for teachers. For this one gets a plate of salad, an ounce of protein, and one trip through the bar. Bowie is one of the last schools in the county to have the salad bar. This is due to the lack of staff. Mr. Hagan brought the idea to Bowie after having observed one at another school in the county earlier this .year. The purpose of the salad bar is to give the students a healthy lunch . time alternative. It was alsoto entice them to stay in and keep up the count of lunch time attendance before Open Lunch was revoked. According to Mrs. Keller, cafeteria supervisor, they were trying to keep students in school to participate in clubs and other activities, which was the original intent of the Open Lunch program.

'$taffSpeaks Out,

Students Seek Consensus For ()pen Lunch

On Friday. March 16 Mr. Hagan announced thal Open Lunch ~ cancelled. He was very reasonable by leaving the door open for gelling Open Lunch back. Mr. Hagan gave plenty of warnings telling students that if the littering, jaywalking, and reckless behavior did not stop, our Open Lunch privilege would be revoked. Students' "blatant disregaxd" for his warnings led to Bowie High's , havmg ,to ret!lJIl to the three lunch system. '

With the loss of Open Lunch the students do not only lose their privilege to go off campus, but also their chances, to receive academic help. Tutoring, mentoring, and milko-ups all took place -during the fifty minutes we had. Club meetings can no longer be held during lunch, and this will pull many of them under.

The Age Old Question·.- Who Pays For 4. Date? One Student's Opinion

-----------------------By Tim Trudeau , Pacesetter Staff Writer..

r···

Who should pay for a date? This i$ a question which has caused eoough cOnflict between _certain people to virtually wipe out the dating process all together. . Traditionally. the man is expected to pay for the date. "Ms. Manners" tells us thal in order to follow the proper rules of etiquette. the man should look on a date with a woman as a privilege -- thereby taking on au' financial responsibilities. ~ .~''Mr. M8tU'leIll'Y(me), however, feels thal lheIfnS nothing WI'OQ&~I,h,ap Occasional exception.

There are those who feel that in order to maintain their independence. they should pay their own way and let the other person pay' for him Or herself. This is a philosophy which relieves the ~on of any feelings of being in debt to someone else. • I have seen that a woman will sometimes feel more comfortable with a man knowing thal she "owes" 'him nothing. She is more of a "liberated

Fun Fashion Forecast For Spring Looks ~ot 8y Tiffany Blake Pacesetter Staff Writer

Dresses this spring will tastefully show a lot of cleavage, whether they are off the shoulder or simply be low cut in the back or front Fabrics that will be used most often to show off the vivacious colors of this spring include cotton as well as rayon.· Another fabric that will be favored by desingets' is a rougher form of rayon that is ·usually rainproof and will ~ used in active wear such as sweatsuits and jackets. "Interchangeability" is the key word for this season. No 'matter what the piece of clothing a shi:rt, or pants, it must be able to be worn with not just one thing but a vanety ofpieces. Consumers should buy clothing from stores which have a cbltlr scheme. That means you can buy four pieCes of clothing that can be wqm with the other. As we swing into spring, we will see a vast a:cmy of uncomparable styles. fabrics and colors for which everyone can pick ~d choose, depending upon one's own personal tastes. Choose wisely, and this' spring Will hold a beaLitiful fasbion forecast for you. ~, •

spring fashion forecast for 1990 is hot, with tantalizing styles and colors that will rock the consumer. Color will playa major part this spring. Bold illuminating colais will be the choice for most designers. Vibrant oranges, 'mellow greens, beckoning blUes, and earthy colors will just be the tip of the iceburg of the many variations of color. Choose undoubtedly; what colors will look the best on you. Hair this s'Pring will either be long or short, or in some cases bOth. The "Chinese Bob," (A.K.A the "Egyptian Look"), will be a hot style whether you are looking for a long or short cut "Funky Dreads," along with the "natural look," a short well groomed afro will be the choice for some. Unpermed, lifeless hair will be a thing of the past. People ~ literally "Do there own thang." Accessorizing oudits will be a must in order to make an outfit woilc. It's hnportant to remember ~ is inexspmsi:Ve way to make one outfit sezve as maybe two or three. This spring earrings are a must as well, and great attention should be paid to this fact so the look that you want will not be destroyed. A key thought to remember is, 00 NOT OVER ACCESSORI7E1 Some modem styles will continue to dominate the fashion

industry. The bell bottom pant, made popular in '89 will hit

Two fires at Bowie High were n:cent1y brought onder control. A fire that ~gan on the multi-purpose room stage on Friday. March 2 was extinguished by three Bowie High students and a couple of custodians by the time fireflghters arrived on the scene. On that Friday morning Mr. Bishop and Mr.Hardesty smelled smoke in the cafeteria. They said it smelled like paper burning. They discovered fire in a large trashcan. The fire had also spread to a desk and some scenery panels. Bishop pulled the flre alarm and alerted the front office to call the fire department Mark Messick, ajunior at Bowie and a volunteer member of Station 18 in Glenn Dale, discovered that the evacuatioo was not just another drill, and he took control of the situation. He began smothering the fire with a pillow he found on stage. He instructed the custodians on where to throw the buckets of Waler to keep the fire from getting out of hand.

The next problem to conquer was the smoke. Two more Station 18 voiunteers,

sophomore Richllrd Steltzer, and junior Mike Carter, set up large fans called smoke ejectors to blow the smoke out of the building. . The three flIe-fight41g students have been nominated for the department's monthly service award. The damage to the stage is estimated to be about $500. The fire investigators are still investigating the cause of the fire. They are offering a $200 reward for any information concerning the case that will lead to a conviction. Mrs. Coxe. drama teacher, was very surprised that a student would do such a thing as set a fire. "I don't understand what the motivation ~d it was. h's sad that people want to destroy instead of build." Mandy Morse. President of drama club, explains,,"Ithad to happen sometime. I'm ju~t giad no one got hurt. and we didn~ lose much property." Diane Fusick,a senior, believes that it was not deliberately set. "1 was very shockedl.hat it happened." Achilles Yeldell, a junior, concludes, "It was necessary for such a thing to happen so that people can be aware of the hazards in the schoo!." . Sophomore Mike Gibson is concerned about the future. "I want to be sure that something like this won't happen again." ' Another fire was set a day or two after the stage fire. This fire occurred in roOm 152, an energy electrleily classroom, duriJ:)g second period. One student was-present when some paper towels were ignited. He claims it was quickly extinguished. However, he adds that there was a can of Varsol (used to clean machinery). a highly flam~able compound contai'ning gasoline, sitting not 10 feet from the fire. Administrators Long. Proetor, and Kauffman and Principal Hagan were all notified of the fire. The eyewitness said the fire was not "out of control" and therefore, the fire alarm was not p u l l e d . ' ­

Michele L. Gay Pacesetter'Staff Writer For the past four years. BoWie baseball's pitcher and first baseman has ~ Pat Fachet He played his first

year here on junior varsity and the remaining three on the vasity squad. However, Pal's baseball experience began when he was five. His father,. who is a sports writer for the

W~gton Post,

influenced him in the field of sports, yet not into baseball in particular. "He just wanted me to play sports ... I came up with the idea of baseball," Pat explains. Roger Clemens of the Boston Red Sox and Jack Clark of the San Diego

. Padres are two of the players Pat .

idolizes, The goal that he himself

would like to reach is to play baseball

in college. He is looking at University

of Maryland College Park:, University

of Maryland Baltimore County, and

Westchester. On the subject of schoolworlc, Pat states that it is more difficult keeping up his grades during baseball season, "Especially in my last class," he notes. Players often miss their sixth period class for practice which lasts three hours. He often used open lunch to keep up with his studies. Unity in the team is very important to Pat. He contends, however, that1the team members get along well, .''E.,--peciaIly players who've played together before â&#x20AC;˘ .'. most of us have played togCther since we were ten." Along with Coach Seibert the team is nothing if not a Unified squad.

He states that the team could be alot l\1.ore efficient and productive if they worked on the mental aspect of the game. "We have a good team but we just aren't together mentally yet" Personally Pal feels that he needs to work on his pitching, There are two aspects of pitching he feels he needs to improve on, perfeCting the pitches he knows and learning new ones.
