Ouad City. Harnld January :22 lB .......... Kiwanis committed to helping children Yo. ,.0,;I Worldwi&,, organization c:elebrating birtcLday by Cheryl Schweizer, staff writer The Kiwanis chapter in Brewster is among the thousands of Kiwanis clubs worldwide that are celebrating the organization's birthday this week. Walt Rays, the chapter's current vice-president, has been a member since the early 1970s, about 25 years. He said he joined the club because it was committed to children and Rays, a teacher and principal for many years, was committed to them,too. Hehasretired from education, but he is still a member of the Kiwanis; he said he wants to make a contribution to local children, and Kiwanis still is committed to children. "Kids are really important to me, and I think they're important to every member here," Rays said. The organization's focus, locally, nationally and internationally, is on children and senior citizens. "It really is a community service organization," Rays said. The Brewster chapter gives out scholarships to high school seniors and gives money to kids selling animals at the fair. They estimated to be about $5,000. They raise money by selling Christmas trees, sponsoring the community Christmas card, selling fireworks in late June and early July and selling sandbags during the winter. The Kiwanis are "strictly a service organization," Rays said. "That's the only reason we exist, is to provide service." The local chapter members have chosen to spend most of their money in the local area; the members Iodine deficiency ODD) around the world by the year 2000.

The club's budget for the year is "have a real conviction that money should stay here in town." The local chapter is involved in aproject sponsored by the international organization, an effort to eliminate has about 20 members;"we're always looking for new members." People do not have to live in Brewster or the Brewster area to belong to the Brewster chapter, the only requirement "That's the only reason we exist, is to provide service," - Walt Rays The Kiwanis will set out donation cans at various locations around the community for the IDD project. Rays said the chapter currently is that members be "law-abiding, contributing citizens," Rays said. The chapter holds business meetings each Tuesday at 6:30 a.m.atthe Brewster House restaurant.

Score Big Points With Adventurous Super Bowl Appetizers The battle between the American Football Conference (AFC) champions and the National Football Conference (NFC) champions is an event that football fans throughout the country have waited all year to see. For those men, women and children who spend their Sundays on the couch watching every football game that's on television, the Super Bowl is one of the most anticipated events of the year. While many fans choose to go to a restaurant or sports bar to watch this big game, a large number of people attend Super Bowl parties thrown by friends or family members. Aside from watching the game, one of the best parts of these parties is the food. Whether it's pizza, foot-long heroes, or a variety of chips and dips, there always is an enormous amount of food served and eaten. Is it your turn to host this year's party? Or, perhaps you're looking to find a new, creative dish to take to some- one else's football soiree. Rather than a bag of chips, why not entice the crowd with something a little different? "The Fort Cookbook" (Harper Collins), by Samuel P. Arnold, offers 190 recipes for game, buffalo, elk and much more standard fare. From Buffalo Drive Buffalo Burgers to Cold Rattlesnake Cocktail (definitely for the more adventur- ous palate), this unique and exotic cuisine will bring a bit of Old West flavor to any table. The following appetizers range from the more common- place (bean dip) to the unusual (jalapefios and peanut but- ter). You are sure to score a touchdown this Super Bowl Sunday with these tasty treats. 2 8 JALAPElgIOS STUFFED WITH PEANUT BUTTER Serves I0 (2 per person, usually) 1 12-ounce can pickled jalapefio peppers 3 1 cups peanut butter (smooth or chunky) 6 Slice the pickled jalapefios in half lengthwise not quite all the way through, leaving the 2 halves attached at the stem burning. end. Using a knife or spoon, remove the seeds and ribs under running water. Pack the halves with peanut butter, press together, and arrange on a serving plate. Be sure to warn guests to put the whole pepper (except the stem) in the mouth before chewing, to get 70 percent peanut butter and 30 percent ja!apeflo. A nibbler squeezes out the peanut ,but- ter, changing the percentages and making it very hot indeed. A fun variation is to mix Major Grcy's chutney with the peanut butter. It gives a nice fruity sweetness that also buffers the burn. HOT SAUSAGE BEAN DIP Serves 10 pounds refried beans ounces dark beer (which leaves some of a 12-ounce bottle for the cook) pound bulk hot Italian sausage small white onion, finely chopped to 5 serrano chiles, finely minced to 8 ounces cheddar cheese, grated (1 to 2 cups) Heat the beans and beer in a double boiler to prevent Meanwhile, heat a large saut6 pan and brown the sausage with the onion, breaking the sausage into small pieces as it cooks. Pour off the fat and add the chiles. Saut6 a few minutes longer. Combine with the bean and beer mixture and stir well. At the last minute, stir in the cheese, which will melt nicely into the warm dip. Serve with fresh corn tortilla chips. Z1986188 PHOTOGRAPHY AUTOMOTIVE SUPPLIES SHULL'S TOWING & PARTS 24 HR.

CONTRACTORS I Carter Excavati0n, Inc, Sex offender laws can't from page 2 crimes. Each prisoner is assigned a risk level of I, II or III. That information is passed along to law enforcement agencies in the area where the person plans to live. The 1997 law requires that notice to he made a few months before the person is due for release. Thurber said he thinks that is a good change, since sometimes offenders were living in a community for days or weeks before the local law enforcement officers learned of their presence. The county sheriff's office conducts its own review and can reclassify an offender if they can give good reasons. The 1997 law allows the municipal agency, such as the Brewster Police Department, to conduct a review as well.DouglasCountySheritt'ssergeant Rick Halterman said that in cases of sex offenders living in Bridgeport, those reviews are done by detectives connected with the sheriff's office. Thurber said that as of November 1997,Okanogan County had 95 people registered as sex offenders as residents; Douglas County had 64. Seven people registered as sex offenders lived in Brewster or the immediate area, or had a Brewster post office box. Three more lived in the Pateros area. All of those people are rated as Level I or II offenders. Level I offenders are regarded as having a lowrisk toreoffend; LevellI offenders are regarded as posing a moderate risk to reoffend. In the case of a Level I offender, the police notify other law enforcement agencies in the area and can notify people who % live in the same area as an offender, at their request. In the case of a Level II offender, police can notify schools, child day care centers, family day care providers, neighborhood groups, businesses and organizations (such as churches, libraries, fraternal and charitable organizations and malls) that serve women and children and other vulnerable adults. Level III offenders are considered a big enough risk that the general public is notified. Thurber said part of the reason he is talking about this subject now is that he doesn't want to cause excessive public concern ifa Level lIl sex offender moves into the area. There are cases where sex offenders have been driven out of a community; in at least one case, the offender's home was set on fire and destroyed. That case caused some legislators to question publicly whether the law was working as intended. The legislature passed the law and the legislature can repeal it, Thurber said. if the public reacts with panic and vigilante acts. There are things that people can do toprotect themselves and theirchildren if a sex offender moves into the neighborhood. Parents are urged to talk to their children and tell them, without scaring them, that the person has hurt someone before. Kids should be told not to accept a ride or go in the yard of a sex offender, and tell parents or other adults if they are offered toys or girls by the offender..Neighborhood children should play together outside and should not be alone outside after dark. Children should be aught their name, address and phone number. Children should not accept rides or invitations into a house--even from people they know--without checking with their parents, caregiver, or other adult. Children should never hitchhike and not keep secrets that make them uncomfortable. But not all offenders target children. Adults need to observe certain safety rules; they should know the neighborhood and their neighbors. People should not hide spare house keys outdoors and should leave porch lights on at night. When leaving the house, people should leave some interior lights on and maybe a television or radio. Children and babysitters should not tell callers or visitors who is home and who is out. The house doors should be locked when working or playing outside. People who have a portable telephone should take it outside. If a person coming home suspects their home has been entered, they should leave immediately and contact the police. But most are not committed by strangers--most rapists know their victims. Women who are in situation where they feel uncomfortable should leave, no matter the rules of etiquette. More information on personal safety canbe obtained from the Brewster Police Department. Toothpaste can be used to shine up sliver and gold. Rinse thoroughly. DlckDoly KIRBY BROWN & Assoc., Inc. 689-0152 - 416 N.
