r" paae 2 November 19. 1981 Quid City HRra|d We moved into our brand new, built to our I specifications home a mere thirty years ago. A two bedroom, one bath, living room, dining and kitchen area all open the full length of the front of the house. If memory serves me correc- tly the 'ust right" specifications lasted only a couple of years before the walls came tumbling down. Winter time, the slack season in days of yore were automatic tear it down - put 'era up days. With additions, corrections and omissions, our house only has one original in- side wall still in place. Two bedrooms increased to five, one bath to two, out of necessity, the stairway moved, the dining room moved to a used to be bedroom, the kitchen removed and rebuilt, and on, and on. Exhausting movable walls upstairs the lower level has become the move was one this past weekend. The pool table complete with slate top, weighing 16 tons was moved from one end of the basement to the other, exchanging places with many pieces of furniture now grouped in front of the fireplace. The book shelves, desk, files and all other office paraphernalia neatly put in place. Sounds oh so simple, all this moving about, but believe me the tempers flew, the ideas were all different on how to, which way, why and where to. I really could have been a lot of good help for them but they informed me that was their domain, so I sat and played soothing music on my Christmas fun, machine for the moving three boys and husband. The crew crawled up the stairs with every muscle aching late Sunday evening, with almost everything settled in -I Letters to the Ed itor__00 and lower Canada on a Em- pire Tour. She described it as, "Beautiful, the fall colors were lovely everywhere we went, autumn following us as we traveled south. The ac- comodations were excellent everywhere we went, and we saw the best known tourist attractions everywhere." Mrs. Clendenin went on to say that Mr. and Mrs. Bill Merrinmn of Pullnmn, both retired professors from the university, accompanied the tour as escorts, andin every major city a guide met the bus and conducted the tour of that particular place. Mrs. Mamie Hammill of Wenat- chee, a retired teacher, was Aulta's roommate for the tour and they sat together on the bus. The driver for the whole trip was William Simmons, who drove a route through Brewster some time ago. The tour left the Rldpath Hotel in Spokane October 1, arriving in Lethbridge, Alberta, where Aulta had dinner with her, niece and friends. They went on across Canada, their first major stop being in Niagara Falls, with a tour, and dinner in the Skylon, where they waited for the lights to go on the falls. The next stop was Toronto, a beautiful city, then Mon- troal, where they were taken to St. Heleus Island for din- ner down in an old fort from the 1800s. Dinner was served on pewter dishes with only a knife for a utensil, Just as done in the days when the fort was in use. In Montreal, the second largest French speaking city in the world, they had a three-hour tour of the city. Aulta observed that a large amount of industry was going in about the city. They saw Notre Dame Cathedral there, and McGill Univer- sity, which had underground corridors between buildings for the students. On to Ottowa they preceeded, seeing there the parliment buildings, embassies, experimental farms, colleges, parks, They stayed at the elegant old "Chnuteau Laurier." They arrived in Quebec on Sunday, with another full day of guided sightseeing. They were told this was the only walled city on the con- tinent north of Mexico. Monday was the Canadian Thanksgiving Day. They saw a restored 1877 house, the Palace Royale, Notre Dame Cathedral from 1688, the oldest church in Canada, the Plains of Abraham where Montcalm and Wolfe, leading French and English armies, fought a famous bat- tle which lasted 15 minutes. The tour went on to Ken. nebnnkport, Maine, a pic- turesque and charming New England village on the coast. They stayed in a Colonial style inn, and enjoyed a lob. ster dinner. Sightseeing in. ciuded small shops and an. tique ships, for which they would have liked to have had more time, AuRa chuckled, The tour continued across New Hampshire, with fall coloring the leaves in brilliant colors. They saw the White Mountains, and the famous covered bridges of New England. At Bath, Garden Club says lack of publicity To the Editors of the Brewster Herald- We the Lake Pateros Garden Club are deeply concerned over the lack of publicity we have been able to receive in your paper. Perhaps you can tell us where the problem is, recently we have submitted four neatly typed, thought- fully worded articles to have only one make it to print. In the past we have had the Apple Cores entertain at Har- mony House and couldn't get anymore than a one llne mention - no photo - nothing. We have also held several bake sales, the last one to raise money to send a boy from Brewster to Kansas - again no coverage. We thought you were a newspaper! If you have something against our group let us know. We feel you are doing a disservice to us, but an even greater disservice to the whole Quad- City area as our membership includes many ladies from Brewster and Bridgeport who would like to know when and where our meetings and workshops will take place. We hope you will print this letter and sign us respectfully- Sandy Mathes (president) Sharon Jackson (vice-pres.) Marilyn James (sec-treas) (Editor's note: A news article on the same subject is usually not printed more than once unless there are new developments to bring the story up to date.

Public certification of the move was given in Olympia October 30. Mayor Sam Almond reacted positively to the action, which was voted in by the city employees. "I think we can negotiate in a collective bargaining framework," Almond said. "At any rate, it's our only option." Almond indicated that future hirings and wage negotiations would be a func- tion of the entire city council. "We'll keep everyone informed; there'll be no hidden commitments," he concluded. Board Meeting changed Pateros School Board regular meeting has been changed to Novem- ber 24, 8 p.m. since the scheduled date falls on Thanksgiving Day. Thanksgiving service Pastor Simon Maler of Hope Lutheran Church will conduct Thanksgiving Day services November 26 at 11:00 a.m. Services will be held at St. James Episcopal Church. The public is invited to attend. Bridgeport School board Cont. from Page 1 three girls on work-study at the Bridgeport bank in recent years are now employed in the banking industry. Superintendent Harry Rhodes also expressed enthusiasm for the program. The board thanked Charap for his presentation. In other business, Lois Nordtveit was approved by the board as Bridgeport's new first grade teacher. Nordtveit has been on the job for a week. The board also renewed for five years H. Lee Hartford's lease on 17 acres of school property. Hanford has farmed the alfalfa ground for the past five years after installing sprinkler irrigation equipment on the property. Discussion ensued concerning the dispositon of the district's $385,000 cash reserve, in jeopardy of being reap- propriated by the state and allocated to schools severely affected by the gover- mr's 10.1% acrms4he-belmt school cuts. Rhodes emphasized that Bridgeport's reserve was not a result of over- apportionment; rather it was built primarily by sound fiscal management. "I don't think we should be responsible for hailing out institutions incapable of managing their own funds," he said. Brincken and other board members agreed, suggesting some of the money be entered in the school's building fund, where, at least presently, the state would have no access. "A vote of the people would be required to remove it from the building fund," Brincken said. "But that seems preferable to forfeiting it to the state." The board concluded its meeting in executive session. Square dance cancelled The Methow Valley Promenaders of Twisp, have cancelled their planned square dance scheduled for Saturday evening, November 21. Bradford, who kept an account of this voyage and their early life in this new land. He titled this "Of Plymouth Plan- tation". They faced a new and unfriendly en. vironment. During the first winter, fif- ty, almost half of those who landed, died. During the winter at many times almost the entire group were ill. In spite of all this, they were deter- mined to make this their new country, their new home. The following spring as the frost left the ground, they tilled and planted. Fortune and the weather smiled on their efforts. They had a bumper crop. Those who were the hun- ters and fishermen also found a land of plenty. To celebrate this they had a grand feast. A feast of thanks giving. A feast to which all their new friends of this new land were invited and thanked for their help and training to make it possible for the Pilgrims to adapt to this new land. They also thanked the Lord for his guidance and protection. By custom each year we also observe this day of Thanksgiving. Is this obser- vance only the recognition of a custom, Aulta chuckled at a road sign here: "No reverse direc- tion" meaning No U Turns. In Vermont were the Green Mountains, and historical points dating to the Revolutionary War. They saw the site of the Bat- tle of Beunington, and Old Sturbridge Village, a recreated New England farming village from the 1790.1840 period. They also traveled through the area of Grandma Moses' home. They passed Lake Chain- plains, scene of a famous battle between the Americans and French. Arriving in Boston they noted the contrast of the modem skyscrapers and the Revolutionary shrines. The city is billed as "Home of the Braves, the Bean, the Marathon and the Boston Tea Party." All about them decorating was done with piles of pumpkins, scarecrows, witches, and cornhusks, in anticipation of Halloween. Two days were spent touring, viewing a replica of the ship depicting the Boston Tea Party, the Constitution and all the shrines. They went to dinner at a restaurant on the water, where they were served lob- ster again. Boston was a highly ex- pensive city in which to live, with notoriously high rents, they learned. They saw the rowing team on the St. Charles River, and the Christian Science Square, the Hancock Building, a glass skyscraper, which reflects Trinity Episcopal Church across the way. There was the Old North Church, statues, the Salem Witch House and the House of Seven Gables. Down the Ethan Alan Highway they went, seeing many old houses, homes with turrets and beifrys. They bypassed Hartford, Connecticutt, passing a huge Gerbers plant, saw a sign proclaiming an Apple Har- vest Festival at Waterbury, Connecticutt and bypassed Brewster, New York. Arriving in New York City, they stayed in the Barbizon Hotel overlooking Central Park, where they could ob- serve the street vendors and horse drawn carriages. They had a day of sightseeing on a tour, to the Statue of Liberty, St. John the divine Cathedral, not yet finished, Time Square, Rockefeller Center and all the usual sights in the canyon of cement. Leaving the city, they went through Newark, New Jersey, and saw many apple and peach orchards near Borden, with "puny" trees, Aulta commented. Through the countryside the fall colors were pink and coral, apricot and red, burgundy and orange, scarlet, brick, brown, green and yellow, with evergreens intersper- sed, AuRa wrote in her travel diary. Crossing the Delaware River, they traveledthe John F. Kennedy Memorial Highway, paying a 75 toll. Past Chesapeake Bay, Aberdeen, Maryland, past toll houses, for which the famous "toll house" cookies were named, past steel mills Anita Clendenin of Bethlehem, over the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Maryland, they continued on to Washington D.C. They stayed at the Olde Colony Motor Lodge in Alexandria, Virginia, then drove around D.C. at night to see the lights on the famous monuments. The next day they stood in line 1Vz hours to see the White House. A Korean soccer team was in line ahead of them, having a wonderful time, Aulta remembered. They were taken to the arts building, Ford Theatre, Embassy Row, Arlington National Cemetery, the SmRhsonian American History Museum and the Air and Space Museum, and to Mt. Vernon. They went to dinner one evening at the Harlequin Dinner Theatre where they saw the play, "Bells are Ringing" performed by university students. Leaving the city they passed through areas where the Civil war was fought, the Battle of Bull Run, then through the Appa|achain Mountains, over the Shenan- doah River into Virginia, where there was a special lunch stop at the Wayside Inun. They went through the Blue Ridge Mountain area to Knoxville, Tennessee, site of Expo '82, for which there is much building going on, then on to Nashville, Western Music World, and Opryland, where they saw a llve matinee of the Grand Ole Opry. They toured the city the next day, and had the recording process explained to them in a recording studio by Paul Martin. They saw the homes of Minnie Pearl, Eddie Arnold, Waylen Jen- nings, Ronnie Mllsap and the late Hank Williams as well as others. In Nashville there were also many colleges, beautiful hospital buildings, and a tour of the Upper Room Chapel, where there was a famous wood carving of de Vinci's Last Supper. Leaving they passed through the tobacco country, with barns and sheds for the crop, white fences around the buildings. In Tennessee they saw the CordeU Hull Dam, and noted the many dams of the TVA. AuRa marked the red soil and limestone formations there. At Memphis, after passing through partially picked cot- ton fields, they went to Graceland, home of Elvis Presley, and saw many beautiful homes and medical buildings. They went to Blues Alley on Beal Street, which claims to be the real "home of the blues." The tour bus went on to Little Rock, Arkansas, passing large cotton fields, huge flocks of blackbirds, and stopped at the "nicest and newest McDonald's." "It appeared a very prosperous country, a far cry from dust bowl days," AuRa commented. Here she noted regular gas sold for $1.17.9. Near Ft. Smith gas went as low as $1.15.9 for regular. They passed through Oklahoma City, oak and sycamore trees, red cattle, more oil wells, saw some of the Santa Fe Trail, many large and beautifully cultivated fields, over the Red River and the Texas line to Amarillo, Texas. On through a comer of New Mexico and into Colorado over Raton Pass to Pueblo, viewing the Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak and the Air Force Academy at Colorado Springs, where a light snow had fallen the night before. Nearing Denver they stop- ped at the North Glen Shop- ping Center, a huge mall, and happened to see the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders. Now they were homeward bound, with stops in Cheyen- ne, Wyoming, Casper, over the almost dry Powder River, Sheridan, then Mon- tana, with beautiful rolling hills and farms. They saw the site of Custer's Last Stand and heard a lecture by a Crow Indian girl. They had their final dinner together at Bozeman, and arrived back in Spokane November 2, saying fond farewells to many new friends and acquaintances. Mrs. Clendenin felt that the trip had been arranged well. She brought home many cards and booklets, having little room for souvenirs. Happy memories of new experiences are usually the best souvenirs of all. Attends seminar Kathie Windle and Laurie Kruger of Full Service Insurance of Brewster at- tended an educational seminar Novem- ber l0 in Spokane sponsored by United Pacific  Insurance Co. Agents from Washington and Idaho gathered at Cavenangh's River Inn to hear com- pany representatives explain a new honowner insurance option, auto plan and claims service. A luncheon followed the discussion. pictures in the July 2 edition. We ran a large picture of them page one the Jy 9 edition. They were in again on July 23. They appeared only as news at llar- mony House. We felt they had been well covered. Lake Pateros Garden Club purchased an ad for a bake sale which we published in the September 24 edition. That same week we ran a picture sad article front page on the Brewster FFA Youth you were helping to get to Kan- sas. Your bake sale was given coverage in that article - page one!

Pryor. or are we really thankful for what the last year has been. Are we as those pilgrims were wimng to face real hard" ships to attain our goal of Ideal National Excellence ? Those Pilgrims and the generation that followed, frontiersmen, statesmen, military men, and empire builders have blazed a trail for us to follow. Each generation has faced challenges and hardships. Each has left behind them a better nation and each has been thankful for, for the freedom they en- joyed and helped improve on. We are fortunate to have preserved our initial American freedom. The ef- forts of those before us have been rewarded. To-day, we as AmericanS, live in the most affluent and prosperous nation in the world. Our high standard of living is matched only by an equally high regard for our historic freedom and the dignity of each of us as in- dividuals. We can enjoy our bountiful harvests, our freedom of speech and religion, and the opportunity to offer thanks for the efforts and sacrifices of those that have gone before us. On this Thanksgiving day, 360 years since our first Thanksgiving, let there be rejoicing in the hearts of all, and a renewed determination to be thankful for and determined to guard our freedom and way of life. Man on the street economics No two people will answer any given question the same - unless all that's required is simple regurgitation of some statistic. Certainly Washington's economic problems are beyond that. Solutions appear tough and distant. But to see what Quad-clty residents felt about the tight times - and what might be done about them - the Herald took to the streets. Herewith are some of your answers to questions on the tight fiscal policies threatening our state's economy. "I think politicians are much too hlgh]y paid. We wouldn't have to cut programs, like education - if govern- ment funds were used more prudently. I'd like to get a teaching certificate, but without education grants, college is out of the question for me. Let's reduce foreign aid and keep the money here where It will benefit Americans." Mary Henderson, working wife, Brewster "People are living too high. We could all cut hack a little. Legislators and teachers are always asking for salary increases. I live on a fixed income, and I'd like to see everybody take a bite of the bullet." Harold Lovuas, retired, Pateros "Politicians make too much money. I think we could help domestic industries and our economy by reducing foreign trade." Barbara Bevis, single working girl, Brewster "Reagan is our wain problem. His cuts in the welfare and food stamp programs are too deep. A lot of people need this kind of help, Let's cut space programs - not human services. Martha Cunnlngham, widowed housewife, Brewster Business----00 Sect,on Laurie Kruger is a new account assistant at Full Service Insurance, Brewster office. Laurie and her husband, Dong, who works for the P.U.D., moved here from Moses Lake. Laurie grew up on a cattle ranch in. the Methow Valley and attended grade school in Twisp. Dorothy Morton, Bridgeport, has been employed this fall for Custom Packers in the office. Pat Sing, Brewster, is now employed in the office at Custom Orchards, replacing Elsie Crossland, who retired. Lama Ausert has taken the position of secretary to George Chapman at Magi in Brewster. "Overspending in all levels of bureaucracy has caused much of our problem. Contractors for the govern- ment have been allowed too much freedom to overrun cost estimates. I'm glad 394 passed."
