p a 4 January. 24. 1991 Quad CIh/He-raid I Brewster School policy ('Oral nunity Focus will restrict facility use The Brewster School Board has rewritten district policy to place restrictions on the use of some of the district's facilities by people not connected with the school. The ac- tion was taken at the regular board meeting, Monday, January 14. According to Superintendent Mark Jacobsen, the new policy will prohibit the use of school facilities for dances unless they are sponsored by the school district or by non-profit groups, such as the Lions or Kiwanis clubs, within the district.

Jacobsen said the restrictions were put in place after it was discovered tY, at the sponsor of a number of dances was not a resident of the district. The man had supplied a Brewster address and phone num- ber when making arrangements to use the facilities. Because of damage at previous dances that necessitated the presen- ce of a custodian, the school began charging a $400 damage deposit. But the money deposited before the last dance did not cover the cost of cleanup and repairs of the last two dances. The floor of the multi- purpose room in the elementary school had to be rewaxed (asbestos in the tiles means the floor must be waxed at all times) and a broken mirror had to be replaced. The new policy takes effect im- mediately. In other business, the beard met with Jim Christenson of Architects West, the architect designing the new Brewster High School and the remodeling of Brewster Elementary School. There was a discussion Of covered bus parking, but the beard decided a limited budget meant that available money should be used to build as many classrooms as possible. Covered bus parking was made a high-priority item when funding becomes available. (Districts are not reimbursed by the state for bus repair or parking facilities, Jacob- son said. The entire cost of those facilities is absorbed by the district.) Also discussed was the size of the locker rooms and the number of shower heads. As many as 50 kids could be using the locker rooms at any one time, and the current five shower heads will be inadequate. (The second gym planned for con- struction has no locker rooms.) The board asked for more shower heads. The board also decided to con- solidate two loans for new buses. One loan was taken out three years ago to pay for a bus purchased at that time. The second loan is for a new bus, due to arrive this week. The district consolidated the two loans, thereby receiving better in- terest rates, Jacobsen said. The board also approved policies concerning nondiscrimination and affirmative action, but delayed ap- proval of a policy concerning a drug- free workplace. Members of the Brewster Education Association, the teachers union, had some questions about the working of the policy. It stipulated that teachers using medication of any kind, including over-the-counter medication, had to report to their supervisor, who in conjunction with a district officer will decide if the teacher is competent to teach. The BEA said that kind of judgement should be made by a doctor. Ap- proval of the policy will be held up pending further review. Board members also were presen- ted with the first draft of a new athletic handbook for coaches. The handbook will include the policies covering athletics and the things expected from both coaches and players, as well as a description of the coach's functions and a job evaluation procedure. The handbook will need further review before it is approved, Jacobsen said. The board also gave teachers's aide Marge Freeis a leave of absen- ce for the rest of the school year. Freels is recovering from an auto accident. She has been asked to notify the school beard by August I if she intends to return for the 1991-92 school year. ,(00uilt tieing in Pateros The Pateros Methodist Church will be sponsoring a quilt tieing class on Mondays and Wednesdays.

' The church would also like to remind the community they still are having crafts and lunches every Wednesday. For further information contact the Pateros Methodist Church.

Main, Brewster I Rabies c00l" nic in Mansfield A rabies vaccination clinic will be Saturday, January 26 from 10:00 a.m. to noon at the Mansfield fire hall. According to city clerk Nancy Hansen, Mansfield residents must show proof of vaccination before buyifig a dog license, which is required for the pets of city residen- ts. Each license is $2.50. The rabies vaccinations are $I0 each and are good for three years. Dogs brought to the hall are required to be on leashes, and cats on leashes or in a box. The clinic is being sponsored by the Chelan Veterinary Hospital. At the last Mansfield city council meeting, Hansen said, several people complained of persistant problems with dogs running loose. Reserve poUce training offered The Okanogan County Sheriff's Office has announced it will sponsor reserve police officer training beginning February 6. According to Okanogan County Sheriff Jim Weed, participants will get a total of 108 hours of training. Classes will be Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Wednesdays from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., in the conference room of the Okanogan County Sheriff's Office. Classes cover such topics as criminal law, crime investigation, arrest procedures, firearms, search and seizure and emergency vehicles. The training is certified by the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission. Reserve police officers are usually people with another job or who are retired, according to Weed. They are used by cities and counties to police special events, and occasionally they work as the second officer in the patrol car or as a patrol officer themselves, Weed said. Whether or not they get paid depends on the agency--"sometimes the cities pay and sometimes they don't," Weed Community United [ ; Methodist Church Sunday Singspiraflon ...... 9:00 am. Sunday Worship ........ 9:15 a.m. "Children, Illustrated Sermon "Childrens Bible Sudy Tuesday ................. Afternoons Wednesday ................. 3:15 p,rn, Kids Under Construction Choir said. "Sometimes the county pays and sometimes we don't." Working as a reserve officer is "an excellent first step into police work." It gives the reserve officer an exposure to police work, while at the same time allowing law enfor- cement agencies to study a potential employee. Applicants for the program must be at least 18 years of age, in good physical condition, with a high school diploma or equivalent and a Washington state driver's license. Prospective reserves must have a clean felony record. Applications are available at the Okanogan County Sheriff's Office and must be returned to that office on or before Monday, January 28. Pastors: Don & Leona Howell 1300 Foster Avenue- (509) d-3371 Council members reviewed the city dog control ordinance and discussed ways to alleviate the problem. People who have problems with roaming dogs are asked to complain to the city in writing. After two com- plaints the city will warn the dog owner. If the problem persists the city will try to capture and if necessary destroy the nusiance dogs.
