pagA 4 Marc.h 22 2001 Ouad Ci~ Herald School selects Mickael Interested in class reunion Jolee Worsham, a I996 graduate of Pateros High School, now living with her parents in Oroville, is in- terested in a class reunion. Worsham is asking if any 1996 graduates of Pateros, Brewster, or Bridgeport are interested. She asks they make contact with her in Oroville for possible fur- ther plans. Michael Bruno has been appointed to fill an open position on the Pateros School Board. He was chosen from among four candidates following interviews at the regular board meet- ing Monday, March 12. The candidates were Bruno, George Brady, Cliff Burdick and Jerry Evans. Bruno was ap- pointed to fill the seat vacated with the resigna- tion of Margaret Beyer. He will be required to run for election in November to fill the remain- der of Beyer's tenn. In other business, board members approved the purchase of a new school bus. The new bus will cost $61,193.93 and will be delivered before the beginning of the next school year. Transportation stlpervisor David Rains told board members at the February 26 meeting that two of the district's current buses were about a quarter-Century old and needed to be replaced. School district are allowed to save money for transportation needs; the district had about $52,000 saved for a new bus, and about $10,000 more is expected to be added at the end of this school year. Current kindergarten teacher Marilyn Tschetter was hired to teach a full-day kindergarten class from April 9 (after spring vacation) to the end of the school year. Currently the district offers a half-day session only. Parents will have their choice of half-day or all-day attendance for their children. Bus transportation will be provided for children who attend half days. The board discussed a letter from a district patron, asking about the policy for awarding school letters. Currently letters are not awarded to students who participate in school clubs. Diane Winans, whose son Nate Wareham is on the Knowledge Bowl team, asked why letters are restricted to athletes. District superintendent Bob Nolan said he wanted to ask teachers and coaches for their input before further discussions by the school board. Board members authorized the purchase of 10 computer printers for classrooms that do not have one now. They will cost about $2,500. It is the board's custom to look at the district's finan- cial position and possible extra purchases in the spring; teachers and aides submitted a list of possible tech purchases, but board members tabled the rest of the requests. The district will receive additional money due to the approval last fall of Initiative 728, which gave school districts extra funding for specific projects. A public hearing on spending proposals must be held before May 1. The board hired Travis Hellewell as high school tennis coach, Carlene Anders to coach high school track, Scott Worsham as baseball coach and Shed Mortimer to coach high school softball. The hirings were contingent on turnout. They rejected a request from Worsham, to-hire an assistant coach. Cory Morley has served as a volunteer coach and worked about 250 hours, which led Worsham to suggest he should get compensation. But with 11 players on the team, board members did not think an assistant coach was necessary. The board approved a proposal to ask for a boys soccer combine with Brewster, which would allow Pateros students to join Brewster's pro- gram.

Pateros finished fifth overall at regionals; "we beat a 4A team and several AA teams," said Sheila Borst. This will bePateros's second appear- ance in state competition. Knowledge Bowlrequires that team members know a lot about a lot of different subjects, "literature, math, science, history, geography. We're best at history and geography," said Ryan Brauchla. "And once in a while they throw in a Disney question," said Borst. (She is the team's ac- knowledged Disney expert.) The questions can be about anything and everything, from customs in ancient Egypt to the laws of motion, from the location of K2 to---well, Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck. Last year' s state competition was an education in itself. "It was tougher than we thought," Borst said. "We got dusted pretty good last year," said Nate Wareham. "We were un- prepared." Pateros ran into teams that had a Knowledge Bowl class on the schedule, said team advisor Joy McCulley. At Pateros, it's all- volunteer. There will be 18 Class B teams at state. "Winning would be perfect, but we'll settle for top 10," McCulley said. The competition will be Satur- day, March 24 at Camas High School in Camas, near Vancouver. e e e Jenny Reynolds, Reporter The Brewster FFA celebrated Na- tional FFA week February 17-24.
