"One man with courage makes a majority.'" Andrew Jackson Alcohol, drug programs and recreation top School Board With the visit of Dorian and Nancy ted with the alternatives and assigned of the maintenance of the Athletic Greening of Riverside and Warren Swanson of the Okanogan County Alcohol Board, both addressin$ them- selves to the issue of drug and alcohol programs, along with Jack McMillan, Walt Boys and Dan Webster who ap- proached the Board about recreation, the Brewster School Board faced a wide range of opinions and decision making, during their meeting Tuesday night. Greening, a thirty-one year resident of Okanogan County and former head of the Okanogan County Alcohol Board, was there to offer his newly formed business, "Alcohol Information and Referral," to the Brewster School District for $333.00 per month for nine months out of the year. Greening cited his past education in alcohol related fields as well as the results of a survey that revealed of 195 female respon- dents, seventy-four percent admitted to drinking and of the male respondents, sixty-six percent of 234 admitted they also drank. This survey was taken in another area of the county but Greening says the problem is countywide. For his fee, he would make one class presen- tation per month, work with local coun- selors, be available 24 hours a day for crisis and report to administrators and the board on a regular basis. He recommended that a program such as his be made available to students in grades 3 through 12. Greenlng's wife Nancy said the program could also "benefit children from families with drinking problems, not necessarily their own." Both claimed to have had personal experience with the problem therefore feel qualified to teach of the dangers. Warren Swanson, although not asking the board to reject the contract left by the Greenings for further board con- sideration, did inform the board of the Educational Service District's program which is also available to the schools. He displayed a copy of one suggested guideline called "If Drugs are the Ans- wer, Who Knows the Questions?" He assured the board that ESD is prepared to instruct personnel in the methods, adapted for any curricnlum and for grades K through 12. Swanson said, "Both the State Mental Health and the State Alcohol Program endorse the program which will be available in Sap- tember." Mr. Greening told the board that this program is even more expensive than his program. Jack McMillan said that he believed someone who had firsthand knowledge of the problems would be more beneficial to students least they adopt the attitude of 'How would you know' if taught by someone who has never gone through a drug problem of any sort. Teacher Cathy DeFazio asked if there were statistics to show a benefit could be reaped by introduction of the curriculum to the lower grades, to which Swanson replied, "No." The board tabled the issue untl] each member could become better acquain- the principals of each school to examine the issues carefully and make recom- mendations. Two proposed recreation programs were brought before the board; one being a summer basketball league for next year's tenth, eleventh, and twelfth grade boys, with Coach Jack McMillan and Chuck Morris as directors. The teams would meet Mondays and Thur- sdays, use both gyms, and start ap- proximately June 8 continuing through the first week in July. Local sponsors would help defray expenses for the estimated 10 area teams, with a tour, nament during the second week of July awarding first, second and third places. Reasons for this proposed program were to aid the young local officials im- prove their skills, and keen high school youth busy. Only 12 members will be permitted each team. Several board members questioned the insurance problems, suggesting a 'waiver' from each player may not be suitable. The Board voted to appoint Mr. Me- Millan and Mr. Morris directors of the program to alleviate any insurance problems they may realize and suggested that McMillan check on a six week insurance program as well as a ruling by the prosecutor regarding the 'waiver'. The second bid for recreation came when Dan Webster, representing the Jaycees of Brewster, asked for per- mission to establish a "summer sports camp," consisting of volleyball, baseball, football, etc. for youth in grades four through eight. There would be a $30 fee per child to participate and any profits would go toward the Karl Goehry Memorial Basketball Court for fencing, in hopes to reduce the risk of a child retrieving a ball from the street and getting hit by a car. All activities would be daytime activities and would give each child two, five hour sessions per week on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Walt Rays said he had a problem with "using children to raise funds," suggesting the club seek contributions from other civic organizations. Webster replied that they "don't want to ask, they want to earn it while providing worthwhile activities for area children." Board member Red Reynolds suggested, "If the youth are aware of what they are contributing to, R may instill enough pride in them to become conscious of keeping the area they work for in good repair." Webster agreed and said he and Mc- Millan have talked over these plans and the two recreation activities would begin and end during the same period of summer. He then asked the board if they would reduce the fee for gym ren- tal for his program to make it economically feasible for his club. The board agreed to reduce the rental fee 50 percent. Along those same lines the problems Spring Concert s Brewster "Director's Favorites" will be the theme of the Brewster High School Spring Concert to be held May 28, 7:30 p.m. in the new gym. Both the Jr. High and High School choirs will perform, along with the Concert Band and the Vocal Ensemble. Featured artists will be Scott Satier with a tuba solo and Michele Mason, soprano: who will sing "Ah! Non Credea Mirarti," from the opera "La Sennambula," by Vincenzo Bellini, the number which Miss Mason performed Field came into focus, with Walt Rays and Jack McMillan agreeing, along with some board members, that the field is not being adequately cared for, such as a big ditch having been dug recently at the softball field, "without permission from anyone." "We pay $4200 a year to lease that field and we're not getting our money's worth because the city is short handed," said Rays. He said R is possible that the cry may want to seil the field to the school. Don Fekete, principal of the Brewster Elementary School, said, "Many times there is no dry area for our kids to have physical education." Other complaints were lodged at the recks thrown on the track. After considerable discussion it was decided to have an 'inquiry meeting' to determine just where the school stands on the issue, then later meet with the Brewster Town Council with proposals. The board heard Don Fekete's report on the Migrant Portable recently pur- chaed from Wapato. Total expenses of $37,000.00 which includes teacher salary, the portable building, water, sewage and electric hookup ramps, building permits and furnishings, will require a budget extension getting the portable installed by the end of June. These funds are to be reimbursed from the Title I Migrant Funds with "no an- ticipated problems," according to Fekete. Fekete also asked the board to ap- prove his expenses for a Special Education Administrators Workshop at the University of Washington July 6 through 17. Fekete will assume the duties of administrator of the five district Special Education Co-op in Sep- tember. His tuition is paid by the State of Washington. His request was ap- proved. Red Reynolds and Clyde Brown, Superintendent of Schools, reported on their trip to Moses Lake for a Crisis Workshop recently. The workshop in- formed them that the board is required by statute to come up with a "strike plan" in the event one should happen as a result of recent legislation regarding expenditures. Miss Liz Tradup, student, (sub- stituting for Pat Mulloy) explained the plans for the senior class trip. The students will go to the Dean Moore- heads' cabin at Canoe Creek, via the Lady of the Lake in Chelan. Chaperoning the event will be Mr. and Mrs. Dean Moorehead, Mr.' and Mrs. George Nolan, Mr. and Mrs. Red Reynolds and Mr. and Mrs. Walt Rays. The board approved the plans as presented. A letter of resignation was read from both Jack and Kim Roberts who will be moving to Georgia where Jack will con- tinue his education. Jack was both the physical education and health teacher and Klm taught Special Education. Their resignations were accepted "with regret." scheduled at the Washington Music Educators Association winning her the title of the 'top first soprano soloist in the state.'
