01/10/19 - NNHS Newsletter - Somewhere Out There
For every beauty there is an eye somewhere to
For every truth there is an ear somewhere to hear it.
For every love there is a heart somewhere to receive it.
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

|"Somewhere Out There" is a
Barry Mann and
Cynthia Weil. Its single was released by American recording artists,
Linda Ronstadt and
James Ingram. Originally, it appeared in the
An American Tail, recorded by actors Phillip Glasser and Betsy
Cathcart in the role of their fictional characters as Fievel and Tanya
Steven Spielberg, the producer of An American Tail, invited songwriters Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil to collaborate with James Horner on four songs for the film's soundtrack, to be completed in a four week timeframe. The composers "felt no pressure to come up with a radio-friendly hit" and were surprised when Spielberg felt "Somewhere Out There" had Top 40 hit potential and recruited world renowned recording artists, Linda Ronstadt and James Ingram, to record a pop version of the song for the film's closing credits.. In the main body of the film, "Somewhere Out There" was performed by Phillip Glasser and Betsy Cathcart in the characters of the anthropomorphic mice Fievel and Tanya Mousekewitz. Produced by Ronstadt's regular producer Peter Asher, the single release of the Ronstadt/Ingram track debuted at #31 on the Adult Contemporary chart in Billboard dated 15 November 1986 crossing over to the Billboard Hot 100 dated 20 December 1986 with a #83 debut. In January 1987 "Somewhere Out There" returned Ronstadt to the Top 40 after a four year absence to eventually peak at #2 that March, behind "Jacob's Ladder" by Huey Lewis and the News. One of the last commercially released 45 RPM singles to be certified Gold for US sales of one million units, "Somewhere Out There" was also a major UK hit (peaking at #8), marking Ronstadt's first of three appearances in the UK Top 10...

From My Friend, Daniel, of UT - 01/09/15:
|If prayer is only a
spasmodic cry at the time of crisis, then it is utterly selfish, and we
come to think of God as a repairman or a service agency to help us only
in our emergencies. We should remember the Most High day and
night---always---not only at times when all other assistance has failed
and we desperately need help. If there is any element in human life on
which we have a record of miraculous success and inestimable worth to
the human soul, it is prayerful, reverential, devout communication with
our Heavenly Father.
From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 01/10/19:

FINALLY:From www.ajokeaday.com - 01/09/19:
I was sitting at the counter of a restaurant when a gentleman sat in
the seat beside me. I watched as he ordered a cup of coffee and put
about fifteen spoonful's of sugar in it.
He took a sip without stirring it. I remarked, "You didn't stir your coffee."
He said, "I know, I don't like it sweet."
