Wrestling gains more participation in Brewster The Brewster wrestling team started practice last week with 19 wrestlers turning out, under head coach Bill Haley, and should have 30 after all the football players start practice. "This year we have more football players turning out," said Bill Haley, Brewster wrestling coach. The reason the football players got a late start was because Brewster made it to the state quarterfinals in football before losing to Royal 14-7 last Saturday. "'If they are not playing basketball then wrestling will make them tougher and help them get balance and quick- ness," said Haley. "'Wrestling will also help build self esteem and con- fidence." "The added wrestlers also helps us fill out the weight classes. Last year we were giving up 36-42 points because we didn't have anybody to fill all the weight classes. This year we won't be giving up those points and there will be more competition to get a spot on varsity." The returning lettermen for Brewster are Hector Aparicio, Ruben Aparicio, Lance Dial, Alex Garcia, Sal Guerrero, EmilioGuzman,Jaime Montiel, Cory Stotts, Jake Trovillo, Butch Vela and Eric Rios. Alex Garcia and Eric Rios made it to regionals and Lupe Fernandez, Lance Dial and Sal Guerrero quali- fied for state last season. Fernandez was a senior last year and was lost to graduation. Lance Dial was third in the' 101- pound weight class at the Region III 1AWrestling Tournament in Chelan last year. Sal Guerrero was fifth at 108 pounds and Lupe Fernandez was the regional champion in the 115 pound weight class. Fernandez took fifth place at Mat Classic X at the Tacoma Dome. Both Dial and Guerrero won a match at the state tournament but lost two matches, and did not make the trophy round. The Brewster wrestling team will begin the season with a wrestling jamboree at Oroville on Decem- ber 3.

The pass was temporarily closed on November 20, but did not re-open to traffic. The highway is closed every winter because of avalanche haz- ards to both motorists and WSDOT maintenance crews. The North Cascades Highway, the state's northern-most highway cross- ing the Cascades, is closed from the west gate at the Ross Lake Trail Head to the east gate at Early Win- ters Creek. The highway includes Rainy Pass, elevation, 4,855 feet, and Washington Pass, elevation 5,477 feet. The pass typically re-opens in April. Last year, the North Cascades High- way closed on December 22, the latest closing on record. The earliest closure was on November 2 in 1984 when it was closed temporarily, but never re-opened, and was then closed for the season on November 19. In the winter of 1975-1976, it remained open all year, as did Chinook Pass and Cayuse Pass. That is the only winter any of those three passes re- mained open year-round. Chinook Pass (SR 4 I0), elevation 5,430 feet, closed for the season earlier today, also due to high ava- lanche hazards. It usually re-opens around Memorial Day. Nearby Cay- use Pass (SR 123), elevation 4,675 feet, also closed today. Cayuse Pass usually closes for the winter in mid- November and re-opens in the spring.

Brewster receives City of Brewster will help fund the beginning of its curbside recy- cling program with a $1500 grant from the Greater Wenatchee Com- munity Foundation. The Foundation announced over $37,000 in new grants Monday dur- ing the Foundation's 12th Anniver- sary Report to the people of North Central Washington held at the North Central Washington Museum. The awards, ranging in size from $500 to $5,000, went to 17 non- profit organizations throughout NCW from Warden toTwisp and Okanogan, said Foundation President and CEO G. Raymond Taylor. Foundation grant Brewster officials said the income generated will be used toward mainte- nance of the new recreation center at Columbia Cove Community Center used primarily by teens, designed to provide a s;ffe haven for at-risk youth. A State of Washington Department of Comm unity, Trade and Economic De- velopment grant will help fund the $1.2 million project. Since the origi- nal center started in 1991 with a gift of a building by a local civic club Brewster police report a noticeable decrease in area vandalism and graf- fiti and estimate saving at least $5,000 a year in what was being spent to repair damaged public facilities.

Zuppe, President of Sterling Savings Bank, announced that Sam McKee has joined Sterling's Business Banking team in the Okanogan area as a Business Banker with a focus on ag lending.

Mr. McKee graduated from Wash- ington State University with a bachelor's degree in agricultural educa- tion and a minor in agricultural me- chanics.

Decrease in o00a! light hours leads to increase in number or pedestrian/vel ,icle collisions During the winter months, colli- sions involving pedestrians and ve- hicles increase due to a combination of fewer daylight hours, icier streets and sidewalks, and reduced visibility due to rain and fog. According to sta- tistics from the Washington State De- partment of Transportation (WSDOT), during the years 1990- 1995, 4,032 collisions involving pe- destrians occurred between October and January. The majority of those occurred in November and December, the darkest and coldest months. "Children and elderly pedestrians are at the most risk," said Julie Mer- cer-Matlick, WSDOT Pedestrian Planning Specialist. "But we don't want to frighten families into stop- ping their children or elderly par- ents from taking walks. Walking is great exercise, and a good alterna- tive to driving, but we need to take extra precautions now." WSDOT offers the following tips for those pedestrians and motorists: Visibility is the key word. There are fewer daylight hours, so pedestri- ans need to take extra steps to be seen and use reflectors, reflective tape, headlights or flashlights and always wear bright colored clothing. Pedes- trians should also try to walk in lighted areas whenever possible. Pedestrians should always use sidewalks, but if there are none, they should walk on the left shoulder, facing traffic. Pedestrians should always cross at the corners, waiting on the sidewalk or curb, and never stand behind objects like telephone polls or other cards. Motorists need to be extra alert and watch for pedestrians, especially in areas such as schools, bus stops, shops and parks, and at all comers. When coming to an intersection, both pedestrians and motorists should come to a full stop and look right, left and right again. Both pedestrians and motorists should give each other more room on icy streets, where cars will need more room to stop or turn quickly. 1-800-562-1240 Helpline for all chemical dependency related questions for teens and/or adults.
