geport school getting new computer lab Bridgeport Middle School will re- ceive a whole new computer lab this summer, which will be available for the use of district patrons as well. The district received a grant from the PowerUP program, which will pro- vide all the equipment, installation and training. The district will receive up to 20 new computers (Gateway monitors and hard drives), Microsoft operat- ing software, a Hewlett Packard printer, networking equipment, Internet access and teacher training. PowerUP staff members and volun- teers (some from the Intermountain AmeriCorps staff) will install it and provide technical support. Three AmeriCorps volunteers will show the kids how to use it. (Some junior high students with computers at home will get access to the Internet too, through 125 Net accounts donated by America Online.) The middle school students will learn more about computers--but, said district superintendent Gene Schmidt, the goal is to give the whole community a chance to learn more about computers, The new computers will be available for community classes Mter school. Schmidt said it was part of an effort by district officials to en- courage more community use of school facilities. In fact, the lab will get a whole new look as well as new computers. Schmidt said the room would be painted and carpet installed. Some of the computers that are in the lab now will be moved to the grade school and installed in the brand-new computer lab that opened there last week. PowerUP is a non-profit corpora- tion that works with corporations and non-profit agencies to help kids get the "skills, experiences and resources to succeed in the digital age," accord- ing to a press release from the organi- zation.

H~.mld May 3. 2001 P~ge 5 I Funds to aid library reading program Emma Wilson of Pateros was the winner of a framed, limited- edition wildlife print raffled by the Friends of the Brewster Library. The raffle raised about $670 for the library's summer reading program. The print depicts half a dozen wolves gathering on the bank of a snowy mountain stream. It was donated by Tony and Loretta Zaversnik, owners of Countryside Studios in Brewster. The money raised through the raffle and donations will pay for special events all summer long at the Brewster library, part of the annual summer reading program. A puppet show, a visit from a scuba diver and possibly a magician are among the possible programs being considered. Librarian Judy Johnston is planning a special event every Wednesday, beginning the last week in June. Countryside Studio owner winning ticket.
