On four different occasions, the Bearcats scored 50 or more points in a game. Head coach Mel Tjeerdsma was pleased with his team's performance against opponents, even the ones that were not having an exceptional year.

"When we played Missouri-Rolla, we knew that they had been struggling, and that could have often caused a mental letdown, but this team played strong, and they always played as a team,"

said.

"The song was

For the second year, Howdeshell was in charge of the Jazz Fest. Jazz Fest was a competition for jazz

ensembles from different high schools and some middle schools. The two jazz bands at

Northwest helped with odd jobs. At the end of the competition, they performed songs of their

own. Howdeshell was happy with the way the event went. "The thing that

for violence.

Hussein had been in the United States for the past six months undergoing cancer treatment. Before his death the king was hooked to a respirator, and both his liver and one remaining kidney had failed. The throne was passed down to his son Crown Prince Abdullah. Many worried that the king's death would bring even more

The sports complex was to include five youth MKcer fields, four lighteil baseball diamonds, a fiHitball field, two shelter houses, an amphitheater, parking lots and ci>ncessi»>n stands. The demand fi>r the complex was a result of the growth of Maryville's sports organizations. Maryville Parks and Rivreation thought the complex would foster the growth of the organizations. "There were just not enough (fields) available for all the grtiups now," MPR Vice President Dan Edwards said. "That would have alleviated scheduling problems and benefited a lot of people." With a new sports complex, citizens of all ages would have had a new way to relax and enjoy the their free time in Mar\'ville.
