They Won't Let Spock Stay Dead

From the Beckley Herald, Friday, June 1, 1984 comes this oddly pictureless article about "The Search For Spock."
(Click on images to enlarge.)



Below, from the same page of the newspaper, the movies playing at the time.


Bonus: below, from the Macon, GA Central High School newspaper, published in 1974, an article by a friend of mine that I met there that year, Clay Weaver. Both being Trekkers and having other similar interests (like "Planet of the Apes" and "Kung Fu" movies) we hit it off immediately, because back then, us Trekkers had to stick together. The button in the photo belongs to him, as does the shirt it's on.

Who's the hack who gave two stars to Police Academy but five to Temple of Doom?!

I'm more flabbergasted that "Chattanooga Choo-Choo" only rated one and a half stars.

Kyle,
I did live in WV off and on for quite a few years, so you see some articles I collected while there scattered throughout the site. I lived mainly in or near the Beckley area, but also in Parkersburg, Clendenin, and several others places. My stepdad was in construction and moved a lot while I was growing up.

Thanks for writing!
