I Read your way into a getaway The 10th annual Adult Win- ter Reading Program of the Tim- berland Regional Library begins this week and continues through March 31 and is called "Bringing Home a World of Stories." Participants have a chance to win a mini-vacation to enjoy when warmer weather tempts them out- doors. To join in, pick up a pro- gram brochure at a branch library in Shelton, Hoodsport or Belfair. The brochure includes the contest entry form, lists of local and dis- trictwide prizes, and other infor- mation. Those who read or listen to five or more books during the contest period are invited to complete an entry tbrm for each five and return the forms to the library. "Every Timberland library has all the de- tails, and they also have book rec- ommendations and lists for every i reader's interests," said Tim Mal- lory, the library system's coordina- tor of adult services. Grand prizes will be drawn on April 10, with the branch libraries drawing additional prizes locally at various times during the pro- gram.

I David Brandt, 39, tbll through a hole in the deck outside the home in the darkness and broke his right leg and ankle. He had surgery the next morning at Ma- son General Hospital. Brandt has been a volunteer with the Union fire department for the past year and a half and said it will be some 12 weeks be- fore he's back on his feet. Captain Jim Nutt of the fire district contacted officials at The Scooter Store in Seattle to see about getting one of their motor- ized devices on loan for Brandt to use around his home. John Oban of the Seattle store said the corporation has a pro- gram named The Gift of Mobil- ity, which gives away a couple of the devices each month around the nation to people who have no insurance and have lost their mo- bility. "Jim called me and explained the deal," Oban said. "We have never done it as a loaner before, but it sounded great." He took Nutt's request further up the corporate chain and got approval from a vice president. So on the morning of December 22, Oban and Bryan Rosino drove a van down from Seattle with one of their Scooters and presented it to Brandt at his home in Union. Other members of the fire depart- ment had already constructed a ramp with a non-skid surface lead- ing to the back door of Brandt's home to make it easier for him to get in and out of his house. "The community has been great," the injured firefighter said. The New Community Church of Union has brought meals to his home. "It was the first time I broke anything except my nose," Brandt said.

Charges filed in brush with deadly weapon Two men arrested after alleg- edly stealing just over $100 in huckleberry brush from three peo- ple while armed with a shotgun were arraigned recently in Mason County Superior Court. Jake Edward Green, 27, of 10 North Valley Drive, Shelton, and Jonathan Michael Kramer, 30, of 31 Sail Loft Court, Belfair, are charged with robbery in the first degree. Kramer was arraigned on December 18 and entered a not- guilty plea; Green pled not guilty on December 22. The men are scheduled for pretrial hearings on January 29 and trials during the jury term beginning February 6. Green and Kramer were arrest- ed on December 7 by deputies of the Mason County Sheriffs Office who said they were responding to a report around noon from Mateo A. Santiago and Nicolas A. Santiago. The alleged victims said they had been robbed of a day's work cutting huckleberry on leased property 'off Manke Road in Dewatto. MATEO SANTIAGO, who was being treated for injuries to his hand, reportedly told deputies two white men jumped him and yelled that he was trespassing. He said he told them he had permits to pick brush. Mate0 Santiago said one of the men punched him and threatened to kill him while the other man was holding a shot- gun. Mateo Santiago had a broken thumb. Nicolas Santiago provided a similar account to deputies. He said he and his wife walked away when they saw one of the men with a black shotgun.

PPE Jim Smith The Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy PROPER PROTECTION AGAINST MALARIA If you are traveling to a tropical coun- try, malaria prophylaxis needs to be pre- scribed by a medical professional who is familiar with all the available medi- cations as well as current resistance patterns, your personal itinerary and your particular health needs. Medication needs to begin before you leave home, and continue for several weeks after you return. Resistant forms of malaria have now spread to most of the developing world. The most popular form of malaria prophylaxis used to be chloroquine, but this drug is now ideffective against most strains of malaria worldwide; therefore, chloroquine must be taken in combination with another drug such as proguanil. Currently, mefloquine is recommended most by travel medicine specialists, but some individuals can not take this drug, so other regimens must be used. Protective clothing, DEET-containing insecticides, and bed nets are also recommended. NO type of malaria prophylaxis is 100% effec- tive. Even if you take your medicine as prescribed, you can still get malaria and should see a doctor if you have a fever after returning from a malarious area.
