Seniors from Pateros High School will be going house to house during the Christmas break and the first week of January, 1999. The purpose of the survey is to determine the mean income of the community. This will be a factor in determining the fundin g available to the city for a wastewater treatment facility. A survey of Pateros has not been conducted since 1990, when citizens were askedto complete four pages of questions. The current survey will ask four questions, will be strictly confidential and should only require five to seven minutes for each household. Besides determining the household income, the City Council would like to know what people like best about Pateros and what they would like to see changed. The Mayor and Council said they appreciate the citizens of Pateros cooperation and their taking the time to provide this information.

Kindergarten to present holiday program The time-honored tradition of the Christmas program is a common experience for most American children. The painstakingly memorized Christmas carols, Morn and Dad maneuvering for the bestcamera angle, all the relatives in the audience beaming proudly even when a mistake is made---all of that is the stuff of millions of memories. The students in Connie BeckeT's kindergarten class will follow the same tradition as their morns and dads, grandparents and even great-grandparents. They will tell the story that will never grow old, the story of the child born of humble parents in humble surroundings, the laborer's son who was really the King of Kings. The pageant will be held tonight, Thursday, December 17 at 7 p.m. at the Community Log Church, 501 West Indian Avenue in Brewsier. The Children singing and telling the story include Grace Pariseau, Kyle Joyner, Clay Divis, Mackenzay Leonard, Samantha Varrelman, Stockton Taylor, Megan McChristian, Corina Gebbers,Amanda Youngers,Aaron Liner, Brittany Webster, Kari Allen and Dylan Wooten. Bird counters to convene Satu', lay Bird lovers from the Quid City area have been invited to participate in the annual Christmas bird count Saturday, December 19, sponsored by north central Washington chapter of the National Audubon Society. Participants are asked to meet at 7 a.m. at the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife office on Moe Road on Bridgeport Bar. From the central location birdwatchers will fan out over a circle 15 miles in diameter, centered on Dezellem Hill and including Brewster, Bridgeport, Bridgeport Bar, Central Ferry Canyon and portions of Brewster Flat. Bird counters are asked to dress warmly and bring a sack lunch and binoculars.Audubon Society members especially are looking for people with backyard bird feeders who have kept a list of the visiting birds, said Meredith Spencer, one of the organizers. Anyone and everyone who loves birds is invited to join in, even those who don't know a widgeon from a pigeon; "the more eyes, the more birds that get seen," Spencer said. One of the world's major rivers, its tributaries and creeks, runs through north central Washington. The water makes it an attractive location for birds (although not a lot of widgeons or pigeons). In the past three years bird counters have seen "lots of waterfowl," Spencer said--loons, grebes, geese, occasional dippers, herons and swans, many kinds of ducks. The river and the desert also attract birds of prey such as bald and golden eagles, hawks and owls. The canyons and hills are home to birds of the western desert, quails, chukars, pheasants. The bird counters have seen sharptail grouse; there is "no other count in Washington state that have grouse" Spencer said. Like some people some birds prefer to live in town, such as jays, sparrows and robins. "You will be amazed at how many robins you see." Spencer said. This is the third year local birdwatchers will participate in the counting process, part of a nationwide effort. The Christmastime bird count has been sponsored by the National Audubon Society for 99 years2  _NEWS FLA ! 12 Days of Chr=stmas0000 In an effort to bring some Ho-Ho-Ho & warm holiday wishes to the Quad City area this ,, Christmas season the Brewster Chamber of Commerce and following merchants and ;" businesses would like to reward thetr holiday e" shoppers with a "Courtesy Ticket" l Webster Furniture Brewster IGA Plus '.Z Brewster Drug Elliott's Flower Shop ,.1 Pratt Insurance Agency McDonald's  Y' Quid City Herald La Milna Jordan Insurance Agency F4 Dr. Rana O.D.
