“As we plan for the 1976-77 : school year and try to anticipate the

Finally a Trip to Mexico!
Maria has finally gotten back to Penjamo in Guanajuato Mexico after trying to save for three years for a bus trip to the place of her birth 84 years ago. Little did she know that on the day that Jaime Newmeyer took her to court to testify concerning her recent burglary, that she would soon be flying to Mexico. After having the trial postponed because the defendant did not appear, she was invited into Judge Orelle Weeks chambers
where she related the story of the past three years. Judge Weeks, being moved by her story called the Post reporter, Cindy Parmenter, to relate her story to the public. As a result of this story, Maria received an all expense paid trip by plane from Mrs. Simon Cottrell in Houston, Texas. Ms. Cottrell’s mother is from the same town in Mexico as Maria. Cash donations have come from almost every state in our country as well as from Mexico and Canada.
Mistreated at Denver General Hospital! You Have Rights And Can Change Things
.There was a recent article in the Denver Post on the way a 64 year: old widow, Florinda Sanchez, was improperly treated at Denver General Hospital. As a result'of her improper treatment she now has 2 six inch’ scars on one of her arms [which were recently made by a I doctor at DGH using an electric j saw to cut away the cast on her i broken arm. The bums and scars [ later . became infected, which is [ more dangerous for Mrs. Sanchez than for most other people, because she is also a diabetic.
This is only one of several j complaints which this writer has ! heard of in the last several months.
[ For example, there is also the case j of the woman who recently had a | severely cut hand taken care of by ! DGH personnel. Her hand was | washed and wrapped in gauze . . .
and healed . . . only there was a I hard lump under the healing | wound. As the woman’s pain | increased she was urged to go back ! to the hospital and here it was j “discovered” that a lA inch long j chunk of glass was still in her hand. Or what about the young lady who stepped on some broken glass, went to DGH to have her foot taken care of, and after they finished treating her at DGH, she came home and took a remaining piece of glass out of her foot by herself?
| And this is what we call medical treatment? This is wny medical costs are so high? How many [ others have similar complaints j regarding the lack of quality care I received at the Denver General ' Hospital? What can we do to change this' seemingly growing i number of improperly treated j patients at DGH? How can DGH’s ' personnel be made to realize that • they are dealing with real people, j with real feelings, and with. real | pain, and not just numbers, or [ guinea pigs.
In order to do something about ! this bad situation, we would like to make the following suggestions to Denver General Hospital:
1. First of all, they need to take a hard look at their intake personnel, and at their present security personnel. These people, along with the Sheriff’s department.
need to be given inservice training in order to soften their case-hardened attitudes towards their clientele. An available resource for effecting this type of training, which we encourage DGH to seek assistance from, is the Commission on Community Relations, a Human Relations Component which could assist the hospital in sensitivity training, awarensss of cultural differences, role playing, etc., all of which would make for a better understanding of the people they serve.
Vi. In an attempt to provide better services from within, the DGH administration has established a Patient Care Committee. However, 6 of the 7 members of this committee are personnel of DGH, and the 7th member is an ex-officio member. We suggest that this board be expanded to include lay persons. Also, although we do not question the sincerity of this group, we do question how effective this group will be. For instance, how will the DGH administration respond to the recom- -mendations made by this committee?
3. Rich Castro, Sal Carpio, Arie Taylor, Kathy Donahue, Max Salas, Phil _Giron, Norma Rugg, and Alvin Caldwell have been appointed by the Mayor to be on the Advisory Council for Neighborhood Health Care. We need to gtfe input to this group, but in addition, we need more pressure from our elected officials if ever we are to improve the poor quality of care received at DGH.
Vi. We question if DGH has an evaluation system for its personnel, for there is no way to measure one’s performance without an evaluation system. And if there already are evaluations being done, we question on what these evaluations are based. We suggest scattered video-tape equipment throughout the hospital, but especially in the intake area, in order to start initiating an evaluation system based on actual performance.
5. We encourage DGH to provide a Patient’s Rights Booklet to all who use their services. A good
example of such a booklet is" the Handbook of Patients — Rights and Responsibilities put out by the University of Minnesota Hospitals, Mpls, Minn. 55455. Such a booklet would enable patients to become aware of ways to express their feelings, ask questions, and to know the proper channels to use in order to seek out and change their situation, when it is needed.
6. Perhaps DGH could provide a form to all their clients to fill out immediately after they receive their service(s). The form could ask such questions as: “Were you treated courteously?”, “How long did you wait?”, etc. Or, there could be a phone available right in the main section of the hospital where anyone could dial a specific number to register a complaint. This could even be done on a tape recorder, with the complaints being checked out on a daily basis. Perhaps, if the supervisors of each department were held responsible for checking out the complaints for their departments, they would take more effective measures to prevent those under them from being rude and discourteous to those they serve.
7. Last, but not least, we suggest that anyone who has received unfair treatment at DGH, or who might encounter poor treatment in the future, to write a letter to Dr. Kavaur at DGH, with copies sent to the Mayor’s office and to our local representatives. If anyone - needs assistance in writing such a letter, please contact Adolfo Gomez at the Auraria. Community Center, 1212 Mariposa Street, or you can call him at 534-7614.
We recognize that there are probably lots of people in the Denver General Hospital system who do care, but they are being overshadowed by. the insensitivity of those who do not care. We recognize that the emergency care of DGH has a good reputation, but what about all the other areas of service? Perhaps some of the above suggestions to both the DGH personnel and the clients of DGH can be a start in changing the present intolerable situation.
City and state officials headed by Mayor Bill McNichols and U.S. Sen. Floyd Haskell will join northeast Denver residents and Department of Health and Hospitals staff for a March 5 celebration of the Eastside Neighborhood Health Center’s 10th anniversary.
Describing the anniversary as a “milestone in our city’s progress,” Manager of Health and Hospitals Dr. A. J. Kauvar pointed out that the opening of the Eastside center a decade ago marked the beginning of a neighborhood health program which has made high quality health services available to all Denver people, regardless of their economic status.
“A newborn baby’s chance of survival in Denver no longer depends on where in town his parents live,” Dr. Kauvar added. “We could not have made that statement 10 years ago.”
The March 5 festivities will include a 2-4 p.m. program and open house at the 29th & Welton health center and a 9 p.m. dance in the Hilton Hotel.
The afternoon program at the center will be emceed by State Rep. Arie Taylor, according to center administrator Richard Poole. Speakers will include city council-men and other state legislators from the center neighborhood as well as Health and Hospitals officials. ,
Employees who have worked in the center since its opening — Lillian Bailey, Claramae Beye, Maude Craig, Lois Flowers, Ray Galindo, Louise La Mark, Spurgeon Roberts, Barbara Santistevan., Margo Smith, Elizabeth Thomas,, and Estelle Vercher — will be honored during the ceremony.
Entertainment will be provided by the KRMA-TV Bird Group and the Escolites, a northeast Denver girls’ drill team. Nate Owens and the Free Life Band, who will play for the evening dance, also will play for half an hour before the 2 p.m. program, to be held in front of the center.
One of the first three neighbor-
hood health centers to open in the nation as part of the federally funded War on Poverty, Denver’s Eastside center was the first major step in establishment of a unique, citywide system of decentralized health centers and stations which now serve more than 100,000 people.
Planned to handle 450 patient visits a week, the Eastside center had more than that number of patients the first week of operation, and by the end of 1966 was recording 1,600 patient visits a week.
Denver Health and Hospitals administrators used the success of the Eastside center to obtain more federal money, with which they established the rest of the facilities which make up the neighborhood health program. As federal funds have diminished, city officials have made local money available to keep the health program in operation.
Although improvements in health are hard to gauge, since health departments usually measure incidence of disease and death, one universally accepted indication of a community’s health is the infant mortality rate. In 1964, before the Denver health program began, the infant mortality rate in the city’s lowest socioeconomic tracts was 33.1 deaths per thousand live births. By 1973, the rate had dropped to 13.4, a figure no longer statistically different from the rate in more affluent parts of Denver.
In recognition of the Eastside center’s importance to the community it serves, $3.6 million in federal Community Development Act funds have been made available by the city administration for construction of a new center. The new Eastside center will be located a few blocks from its present site.
Other health program facilities also are-getting new buildings. A new Westwood health station has just opened as part of-the Southwest Denver Community Center at 1000 S. Lowell Blvd., and a new Mariposa station is under construction at W. 11th and Kalamath.

RTD PLANS STATION ON WESTSIDE
The First Segment of the Region-aT Transportation District’s Rapid Transit System passes by Denver’s West Side Neighborhood on its western edge just east of the Denver, Rio Grande Railroad tracks. As part of this first segment proposal, a station has been located just south of 6th Avenue, west of Kalamath. There are, however, a number of alternate station locations. The first is, as described above, south of 6th Avenue and west of Kalamath; the second is between 6th and 8th Avenues, west of Mariposa; and the third is at 9th Avenue west of Navajo. The specific shape and design of the station and station site have nbt been defined at this time and
changes in both location and design can be made in the future. It is our intent, at this time, however, to be sure that we are aware of the concerns of residents of the West Side Neighborhood so that we can carry them to the RTD Board of Directors early in the decisionmaking process.
The design requirements for this station are that it be at-grade, that approximately 75 short-term parking spaces be provided, and that it be accessible to buses. It is anticipated that bus service to this station will be moderate to heavy, and that the total land required for the station will be approximately six acres.

2 - SANYA FE TRAIL « Housing
it.. f^i •Youth
• RTD
Housing in the Westside can be depressing and frustrating. And it gets more upsetting when all sorts of people come asking what residents want in this area. It has happened for too long like this without concrete programs. . „
But hope and progress!! The Westside is getting homes remodeled; there is a group planning for more housing rehabilitation and some new housing on various vacant lots in the area.
Let us take heart and work together to develop and maintain the houses in our area. Here are some good things going on at present:
1. Redlining may be coming to an end with actions by Treasurer Sam Brown and a new housing finance company formed by the banks
2. DURA has rehabbed numerous homes on the Westside
3. More homes will be remodeled through Community Development funds
4. The housing ad hoc committee is working on a housing strategy with students from the planning department at University of Colorado
5. Betty Koehler and Wendy Schneider at the action center are finding out who owns the land and buildings in the Westside. How many homes and businesses are owned by Westsiders or former Westsiders?
6. NEWSED is continuing plans to develop the area just south of Colfax as a buffer zone between homes and the college.
7. Plans are continuing to redevelop Santa Fe Drive as a place to shop
All these and more are making the Westside a good, solid residential
community. Let us all continue to work with each other.
You should investigate owning your own home if you wish to continue living in the Westside. You can work with the housing committee each Monday afternoon at Auraria Community Center at 3:30 p.m. You are a part of making the Westside a tietter neighborhood.
Homeowner, renter, landlord, businessman, and others must work together. All have a part in making our neighborhood what it should be and can be. Let’s pull together; we have a real chance to make it.
# * #
Last month several cars at St. Joseph’s Church had various things stolen from them during the Monday night Bingo. The priests and Officer Gil Ortiz decided to trap the young people who had messed up these cars.
But when the young people were caught, they were not from the Westside. They had come from another area of town.
How much of the crime and violence in our area is not due to our own youth but to outsiders?
* * *
So RTD plans to build a station at 9th and Osage! Another battle? We don’t think so, but we must work together to either stop RTD from having a station in the Westside or see if there is sufficient planning money and staff to plan a station that will meet our needs and not just the heeds of suburbanites.
The rapid transit route is going along the railroad tracks and we have been abel to plan what happens to our area.
Unfortunately RTD representatives came to neighborhood organizations for a quick answer without any facts or figures or tentative plans. If businessmen and government officials cannot make decisions without facts, figures, plans and other information, we cannot make them on just an idea either.
There are three proposed sites. We need people who are willing to take the time and listen,, suggest, plan and work. Then they can help us see what is the right decision. We still may want to say: No Station in the Westside.
There will be a community meeting to discuss the station location with RTD officials at Auraria Community Center, 1212 Mariposa, March 10, 7:00 p.m.

Dear Editor,
As a Senior Citizen, I am upset and worried as why the. RTD approved the proposed route along West 9th Ave. and Kalamath. Why should we improve our homes, when the elevated tracks will tear our homes apart, just like the 6th Ave. Freeway did and the area went industrial. What about our R-2 zoning? Why and what happened to our elected officials, can they save our homes? Can we as residents save our community? Oh, What can we do? Who can help us?
I am frightened, and I fear that our neighborhood is doomed for destruction, by RTD, Downtown Improvement Association, and the Auraria Campus cars. First, college students, now RTD.. We as older citizens, and life long residents may as well be dead.
Goodby Westside. Thank you for the wonderful cultures, the mixture of people, old homes, old schools, the pride given to me, and most of all accepting me as a human being.
Goodby to the worthless efforts of improving our homes. Goodby to Del Pueblo, The Mariposa Clinic, La Alma and, yes, goodby to the Housing Project.
Signed by a deceased citizen Taken by: Faulty Progress
A special thanks to all the warm and friendly employees at our Adelante Community Market. My personal thanks to Dave Camunez; Adolfo Gomez and Priscilla Roybol, for giving me the opportunity to win the shopping spree for three minutes.
A Happy & Satisfied Customer Edna Lucero P.S. — May you continue to celebrate many more anniversaries.
Dear Sirs:
Was I ever disgusted with the mural at West with its Mexican gods. I have fond memories of West before it went to pot.
I enjoy being an American Citizen. What would happen if each nationality demanded old country ideas like Mexicans do.
A disgusted Norwegian Note from Editors:
This letter was received shortly after the last issue. We will no longer print letters which do not have names attached. We feel everyone has an opinion but should be willing to have his name behind his belief.
We also want to say that we hope that someday West High School has Norwegian, Chicano, Indian, Black, English, German, Puerto Rican, Irish, Jewish, and many other national murals on its walls. The walls will then show forth who we are and how fine our artists are. / We salute Lupe Carlos for his fine work and West High administrators for bringing color and excitement to the school and atmosphere.
Who is a local Norwegian artist who could paint a fine mural? Other artists? And who could paint some fine murals depicting all of us working together?
To whom it may concern:
Thanks for a very good newspaper to keep up with our friends in our Westside area. I’m sending a little news about my son for this month’s paper for the neighborhood news. Keep up the good work.
Mrs. Elizabeth Moore
Wesley’s New Pastor
Effective January 1, 1976, Rev. Juventino Calderon was appointed pastor of Wesley United Methodist Church, one of the oldest Methodist churches in Denver. It is located at West 5th Ave. and Galapago St. Both the local church Administrative Board and the District Superintendent, Rev. Bob Ely, felt that Mr. Calderon is the person wno can relate to the neighborhood.
This is the only major protestant church that has not moved from the immediate Westside area in the last twenty years. It is an integrated church, with both Mexican-Americans and Anglos worshipping together.
Rev. Calderon is bilingual. He has held pastorates in the United Methodist Church in Texas and New Mexico. At present he is completing studies for a Masters Degree in Social Work. He has many exciting plans for the future of Wesley.
Last fall, he was assigned to do his professional field experience at the storefront Broadway Crisis Center at 204 Broadway. Presently Mr. Calderon works out of Child Welfare, Dept, of Social Services, where he is involved in social work treatment, staff development and information center in bilingual and bicultural counseling services for the agency.
Sunday morning services are in English and plans are being made for evening services in Spanish. The Sunday School, held at 9:45 a.m. is being reorganized. All interested persons are invited to come and see what is being done in this unique church.
Business of the Month; ]
Richards Realty j
“Women should be able to go into business or do whatever they wish to for a career. Women have as many brains as men do; don’t they?” Benita Clarke had family pressure to be a school teacher, but she chose a business profession and has never regretted that decision.
Mrs. Clarke, who has been a Westsider for over forty years, is the owner of Richards Realty at 5 East 4th Avenue. She has sold or helped sell many homes and other properties in the Westside during the twenty-seven years she has owned the business and been a real estate broker.
The business was begun by Mr. Richards in 1918 in downtown Denver and Mrs. Clarke began working for him in 1936. She took over the business after he passed away, and moved the firm closer to the Westside and her home in 1957. Besides real estate, she manages property for other people and sells insurance as an independent agent. She handles all but auto insurance which is too big a headache at present.
Besides the business, she is active in Westside Improvement Association, Denver Board of Realyettes, National Association of Insurance Women,' and Denver Property Owners Association.
Benita Clarke has been married, has two children and several grandchildren, has her own business, and owns her own home. She would like to encourage women to become involved in business and feels that they can find happiness and success there. She also feels strongly about staying home most of the time to take care of pre-
George Pacheco
On January 16th, 1976, George Pacheco was appointed as a member of the Colorado State Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Advisory Council. This appointment was by. the governor.
The certificate is fancy and has the governor’s gold seal. George hasn’t been to any of the advisory council’s meetings yet but is looking forward to serving on the council and working with young people.
For six months, Mr. Pacheco was a member of the Community Panel at the Westside Youth Development Project. The panel heard cases of young people and also community issues that were brought before it.
Presently George is a student at Community College of Denver and is getting training in auto mechanics, so that he can be a “grease monkey” and “work with cars.” He is also involved with the work-study program and is now at the Child Day Care Center on Delaware across from Sunken Gardens. During the first semester, he was working for Project Freedom as a tutor of junior high youth.
George is the son of Frank and Margaret Pacheco and lives with his parents at 663 Galapago.
school children, as she did with her son and daughter. But she also did some part time work during their I pre-school years.
Owning a home is cheaper and better for a family than renting. Mrs. Clarke has sold many West- j side homes and now has some others listed. Veterans have the possibility of buying a home with nothing down. Other families may qualify for FHA loans which requires very little down.
Recently Mrs. Clarke sold a home for $22,400 and the down | payment was only $600. A person 1 or family does have to go through the loan and credit process. She also feels that many homes in the | Westside qualify for either FHA or Veteran’s loans. One of her problems which she knows how to get around is insurance companies | “redlining” a home because it is over 50 years old.
If a family sees a home, they ^ should contact a realtor, such as Richards Realty, and work with the realtor to purchase the home. | Realtors cooperate with each other j and will help with the process.
Not only is it possible to get a home loan, but after the person has j lived in the home for 6- months, he or she may be eligible for a loan from the federal government at 3Vi% for home repairs. 3 Vi % is a very low figure in today’s economy.
If the homeowner is over 65, the . home repair program is a grant.
If you want to know more about owning your own home, contact a person who really knows the West- 5 side; Benita Clarke — a Westside resident and businesswoman.
AURARIA COMMUNITY CENTER HOSTSPARTY

After living in rented houses for 32 years, Lillian and Pete Rivera i drove by the. house on West Ellsworth and wanted to buy it.

Pete and Lillian Rivera are the parents of 10 children (7 daughters f including one pair of twins and 3 | sons).

breakers, so that Mrs. Rivera doesn’t have to have fuses around all the time. The wiring was bad and she is relieved to have it fixed.
“I know how some people are afraid to have people come into their home and how some people have been taken advantage of. Once I had some dining room chairs sent out to be repaired and the company went bankrupt. I never saw the chairs again.” This program was a good one and all the men who worked in her home were kind and courteous.
Since there are still three children at home, Mrs. Rivera is busy being the father and mother to them. “That takes more time, ” she says.
She is also active in several clubs which provide scholarships to college for area youth. United Mothers Club is behind the Mariposa Clinic and the A&B Club also has benefits which help neighborhood youth.
She and her family are now planning a “family club” to help themselves. With ten children, spouses and grandchildren, it is difficult to get enough money to go out to each or have special events, so their club will be for those events and special occasions and they will have the money to do something together.
Although she doesn’t commit herself to a particular job or volunteer activity, Mrs. Rivera is always there to help when she can be of assistance to an important function. She has helped out with school functions, St. Joseph’s Church benefits, Westside Action Center, and her clubs. She wants to be “loose to help out when I want to.” And help people she does.
“My house is always open, and there are always friends or family here.” She has never had a break-in, but there is almost always someone in the house and no one can tell when the next person will arrive.
But working with her family and being behind her children when they are going through school is very important to her and was important to her husband. Mrs. Lillian Rivera plans to spend the time with all of her children, especially those still at home.

Dear Tia Marfa,
My daughter ran away from home and the police brought her back. Child Welfare got involved and she has to go in for counseling, and I think this is good in order to straighten her out. But now they want me to come in for counseling too. Why should I have to do this when it is my daughter who has the problem, and not me?
Refusing to go
Dear Refusing to go,
You believe your daughter has a problem and you want her to get help. However, to help her change you need to be involved in the counseling so you can help her at home. You may even have to change some of the things you do, in order to help her change her behavior. If you want more information on this, why not make an appointment with Juanna Bordas at the Mariposa Health Station. Call her at 623-8782.

Bicentennial Slogan Contest
The United States is celebrating its Bicentennial Year. A committee in Washington selected six slogans as possible ones to use. These are the choices they suggested:
1. America is your past; you are her future.
2. America — the possible dream.
3. Honor the past; challenge the future.
4. Take pride in America’s past; take part in America’s future.
5. Stand fast, stand tall, stand American.
6. Freedom’s Way — U.S.A.
Our room made posters to encourage people to vote for their best choices. We put our posters all around the school halls. Then a committee of speakers from our class went to all the rooms to explain each slogan.
Each child in school was given a chance to vote for their favorite slogan. Most of the Greenlee and Traylor students who voted, chose Freedom’s Way — U.S.A.
We sent our vote totals to Washington, D.C., to be counted in the national voting.
In March, the winning slogan will be told about in the newspapers, magazines, and in Wool-worth stores.
We are anxious to find out if our slogan wins.

Youth
Enjoy Skiing
The American Athletic Fund gives the youth from the four Denver Youth Services Bureaus and YES a chance at skiing. Mr. Rudd Pyles from Aspen, Colorado sponsored a ski program for disadvantaged children and children who have been in trouble from the ages of 9 to 18.
The ski trip was at - Loveland Basin on January 27. The program picked up all costs which included rental of ski equipment, bus travel, etc. The only criterion was that the kids have no experience in skiing. Rudd wanted to offer this to children who have never had the chance to ski before.
A bus picked up the youth at Southwest Youth Services Bureau at 8:00 a.m. and brought them back at 5:30 p.m. The ski equipment was picked up at Breeze Ski Rental on West 6th Avenue and away they went.
Joyce Archuleta, from Southwest Youth Services Bureau coordinated the trip with the help of Greg Cher-neff, from Southeast Denver Youth Services; Gail Mueller, from Northeast Youth Services Bureau; Lloyd Romero, from YES; and Judy Iske, from Northwest Youth Services Bureau.
The trip was very successful.
WHO GETS YOUR VOTE — AND WHY
Jerrold H. Claussen, left, and Myra W. Isenhart, communications specialists, will be leading classes in voting power, WHO GETS YOUR VOTE AND WHY, in two Saturday workshops, February 28 and April 24, at West Side Action Center, 1100 Santa Fe, 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. For more information, call Learning for Living, a community service program of Metropolitan State College, 292-5970.
WELFARE
What rules must the welfare department follow in investigating welfare recipients?
Welfare fraud is a crime in any state, punishable by a fine or prison sentence. You can only be punished for welfare fraud, however, if it is proven in a court of law that you cheated deliberately. The welfare department has no power to put people in jail or fine them. All it can do is’ bririg charges against a person, who then has a right to a regular trial just as he would if he were accused of any other crime.
Vickie Herrera West Side Action Center
During the last week of January, 1976, Mr. and Mrs. Adolfo Gomez, Sr., moved their A and S Hairstyling business from Broadway to 837 Santa Fe Drive.
Mr. Gomez was born October 18, 1907 and Mrs. Gomez was born October 27, 1917 in Mote, Colorado. They have known each other since he was 11 years old and she was 6 years old. On November 26, 1930 these 2 friends met at a dance in Antonito, Colorado and their friendship started to take a turn for the romantic side. They were married in 1930 and will have been married for 45 years on May 4, 1976.
Mr. Gomez worked for the Rio Grande Company from August 17, 1946 until October 27, 1972. He retired for 1 year after this and then began to work for Dorothy’s Beauty Shop on, Broadway. When the
previous owner died of cancer Mr. and Mrs. Gomez bought the shop in 1973, but they recently found out that the entire block their business was located on was to be torn down. At this time the office at 877 Santa Fe was available and Mr. and Mrs. Gomez decided to move their business into the heart of the Westside, where they have been residents for almost 30 years. The shop is open from 8:30 until 5:30, but they are also open evening hours by special appointment. The A and S Hairstyling shop has 4 full time beauty operators and they give both men’s and women’s haircuts. In addition, they offer the services of the popular “uniperm”. Mr. Gomez stresses that everyone is welcome to come in anytime and in turn we of the Westside want to welcome Mr. and Mrs. Gomez’s new business into our area.

BAKER NEWS -
Baker is working on improving attendance. Mr. Salazar is asking parents to be helpful by calling the attendance clerk at school on the day the youngster is absent. If it is absolutely impossible to call, please send a note with the youngster when he returns.
Following.up on a recommendation from the parent organization, Mr. Salazar is making plans to remodel and improve the east entrance to Baker near the parking lot. This is really the only entrance available to parents and visitors. Projected plans include moving existing doors out three feet, better lighting, an entrance sign, and brick planter boxes.
The Bilingual-Bicentennial Club is alive and well. Club members are currently preparing for a puppet show, “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow”, to be presented during the May Baker Bicentennial celebration.
Baker is very fortunate in the fact that Mr. Salazar and Susan Rivera were selected to represent the Denver bilingual schools at the third National Conference on Multicultural Education held in San Francisco February 9-21.
The Bilingual Department has initiated a Balaret residence and tent experience for non-English speaking students. These educational endeavors will take place in the spring. Baker students will'be first to attend and the concept will expand as a result of this pilot project.
Aurelia Loya, a student in Mrs. Rivera’s bilingual class, has written six poems.
Bakerites. are proud of Luis Serrat arid Alberta Lujan, both 9th graders, who were elected by the faculty as finalists for the Colorado Youth Citizenship Award. Luis was chosen as one of the 42 finalists and Alberta was one of the 58 runners-up. Both were honored at a dinner at the Regency Inn on February 12 where Luis was presented with a very attractive, engraved plaque. Parents, school personnel and friends attended this event. Both of these young people deserve a good deal of recognition for their attitudes and accomplishments.
Career Education is very much in the news these days. Ninth graders going to high school received a choice.of study sheet concerning the courses offered at the new Career Education Center — to open next September. First choices however will go to juniors and seniors. On February 24, Eloise Lee from the Career Center talked to all Baker 9th graders about the offerings at the Center. On March 11, all 9th graders will go to the Career Fair at Currigan Hall after having been oriented in English and Social Studies classes. On March 16, the Living Witness program will be at Baker for 9th graders. “Living witnesses” are persons from all racial groups who are successfully performing various kinds of jobs. They are able to talk to youngsters in a small group setting.
The music department has been busy also. On February 25, the choirs entertained 6th graders from contributing schools. On February 26 the Jazz Band went to the Second Annual Rocky Mountain Stage Band Festival. On March 4 the Baker’s Dozen sang at the Colorado House of Representatives to celebrate “Music In Our Schools” Day. The Baker’s Dozen has some new portable risers in the form of boxes built by the “Nice Guy” Club — Mr. Emery, Mr. Bogadi, Mr. Simpson, Mr. Walters, Mr. Kampmann and Brad Kampmann, all of whom donated their time.
Mrs. Walter’s 8th grade English class is sponsoring a cookbook. The class is assembling original recipes from Colonial times. All recipes should have a short history and the name of the contributor attached. Please send recipes to the school with your child and direct them to the attention of Mrs. Walters.
Many students, teachers and parents have suggested that we all pitch in to contribute some type of permanent memorial to Baker in honor of the Bicentennial and Colorado’s Centennial. The Bicentennial Comm, is asking for ideas from teachers and students'. Parents, if you have an idea, send it in with your student or call Mrs. Elf-strom at 222-9718. Ideas considered feasible by the committee will be voted on by the Student Body.
The next meeting of the Parent Advisory Council will be held March 4 at Baker Junior High in the Social Room starting at 7:30 p.m. We are planning an evening meeting in order to involve more of the working parents: If you do not know what ESEA is doing for your child, March 4 is your chance to find out. Please plan to attend. We appreciate your good efforts as we work together to help our children.

Principal Goff Dies
The former principal of Fairmont Elementary School, Mr. Kenneth Goff, passed away on January 24, 1976. Since coming to Fairmont eight years ago, Mr. Goff transformed a dull substandard school, totally lacking in pride, into a vibrant, happy school. He accomplished this by implementing new reading and math programs, hiring understanding and dedicated teachers, obtaining necessary monies, renovating the old building and having a new addition built.
Besides these concrete achievements, Mr. Goff established an atmosphere of openness and pride in the school. Children, parents, friends, community leaders, support personnel, and teachers now work together toward the goal of giving the children the best education possible. The man who provided this leadership should be remembered in a lasting way.
Therefore, it has been proposed that the name of Fairmont Elementary School be changed to Kenneth R. Goff Elementary School. This change would be made in honor of the man who made it the fine school it is today. Members of the community wishing to support this name change, should send a short personal letter to that effect, to the Denver School Board, 900 Grant Street, Denver, CO.
The Southwest Youth Employment Service offers social, interpersonal and vocational counseling. It prepares the youth for seeking employment and gives comprehensive instruction concerning job responsibility and responsibility of an employee to his/her employer.

WHS Coach
A football coach has been named for West High School.
Adolph “Ad” Lopez, 31, a graduate of East High School, has been named.
“We feel very fortunate to have a quality person like ‘Ad’ for the position. I have known him as a student and an athlete, and he is a very ethical person. I feel he has the skills and the personality to attract a large number of students for the football program,” said principal Edward Gallegos.
. Lopez has lettered in baseball and football. An All-City football player in 1962, he was tailback on Coach Pat Panek’s state championship football team. After attending Northeastern Junior College, Lopez received a bachelor’s degree from Colorado State University. He received his M.S. in 1974 from Colorado State University.
Married and the father of two children, Lopez is a member of Iota Lamda Sigma Honorary Fraternity, and a past treasurer of the Congress of Hispanic Educators.
Lopez has been at West High School for five years and has been assistant coach for football, baseball, track, and cross-country, and has also officiated sporting events.
Del Pueblo
The Axtec and Maya families at Del Pueblo are making preparations to attend a concert by the Denver Symphony Orchestra at the City Auditorium Theater on Monday, March 8th. They have been studying the instruments of the orchestra and how they make their sounds. Some children have made simple string, wind and percussion instruments from materials they found at home. In preparation for the concert, the children will also be listening to some of the music they will be hearing at the concert and watching a television program featuring Mr. Bruce Hangen, assistant conductor of the symphony.
Estudiantinas de Del Pueblo, a special singing group which sings in Spanish, has recently been started again at Del Pueblo. The 43 members of the group were chosen from the Aztec, Maya, and Zapotec families. The Estudiantinas were originally formed last year by Miss Naomi Martinez and gave several concerts at schools and for the community. Plans for this year include performing for the senior citizens at St. Joseph’s School and for the Del Pueblo School potluck. Since the children have beautiful capes to wear for their performances, they are hoping to schedule some other performances before the end of the school year. Their director is Mrs. Jeanne Phipers.

St. Joe's
Celebrates Bicentennial
The Bicentennial took a special meaning jot St. Joe’s School-on Tuesday, February 10th. Everyone in the school dressed as someone from the past. The costumes included such figures as Uncle Sam, Benjamin Franklin, Betsy Ross, and Davy Crockett. There were students dressed as Mexican settlers, cowboys, pioneers, men from revolutionary times, and of course, a great many figures from the not too far past, the 50’s. The teachers also dressed in costumes that day. Among the best were Kathy Prochoruk who dressed as an 18th century pioneer woman, and Jan Ensminger who came as a lady gold miner.
There was a program that morning for the entire school. Students from the 2nd and 5th grades gave us some of their interpretations and thoughts on past American history.
Lunch that day also had a Bicentennial menu, and the cafeteria was decorated in red, white, and blue. The cooks, as usual, did an excellent job providing an appropriate atmosphere for this celebration.
That afternoon there was a contest at the Platte River to see who could throw a stone across the river. This was reminiscent of the time George Washington threw a silver dollar across the Potomac River. The contest was between 5th grade and 8th grade, and the 8th grade proved to have the stronger throwing arms. It was a very enjoyable day for all.
Sertoma awards were presented to the two outstanding 8th graders. Sertoma, which stands for “Service To Man”, is an organization of businessmen who contribute their time and effort to help students and schools in various projects. This year the awards went to Angela Mondragon and Mike Martinez. These two were chosen by the 8th grade class and by the faculty.
On March 1st the Dental Trailer will be at St. Joe’s. The school is taking part in a pilot project, in which the students’ teeth will be examined and a fluoride treatment applied. This service is provided by the Department of Health and Hospitals and is greatly appreciated here at St. Joseph School.

March PASCO Activities
The Senior Citizens at PASCO will have their time occupied by various activities throughout the month of March. These activities will be entertaining and informative. All of the activities were planned for the enjoyment of the elderly on the Westside.
Here are a few activities that the Senior Citizens of PASCO will be enjoying for the month of March:
Friday, which I have been told is the “holy” day at PASCO, has not been changed. “Grocery Bingo” is still scheduled for Friday. Bingo is a game that both young and old seem to enjoy.
Arts and crafts are on Thursday. Here is an opportunity for the Senior Citizens to use their hands and minds to create beautiful things to decorate their homes. It is important for the elderly to keep their hands busy, so why don’t you come to PASCO and put your hands to work.
March has a very special holiday in it. That holiday being St. Patrick’s Day. The Senior Citizens at PASCO will be celebrating with games and lots of fun. Come and join the activities but don’t forget to wear green!
There will be a Group Sing. The Seniors of PASCO will all get around the piano and sing their
favorite songs. A regular member of PASCO will conduct the sing.
Mr. Sadler of the Denver Public Library will come and talk to the Senior Citizens about how the library can help them. There are many new ideas that the library has found helpful to the elderly. This man will inform you about the various services and programs available to the Senior Citizen.
Judy Fowler will be at PASCO to help you with questions or problems you may have on Nutrition. She works on an individual basis and is very helpful in what foods do the most good for the Senior.
Dave Fager will again be at the piano for an hour of enjoyment. Dave plays the piano in a very entertaining way. He can really make a piano sing.
The Blood Pressure Clinic has been scheduled for the second Wednesday in March. A group from a clinic come to check the Senior Citizens’ blood pressure. As you get older it is important to have your blood pressure checked regularly. i *1
These activities are just a few of the activities that will be at PASCO during March. There are lots of informative and entertaining events scheduled and lots of fun. Why don’t you join in the fun?
Proposed Legislation to Extend VA Benefits
U.S. Rep. Patricia Schroeder (D-Colo.) has introduced legislation which would extend the time period in which veterans may utilize their G.I. Bill educational benefits.
Under current law, veterans who served in the military service between January, 1955, and May, 1966, will lose their educational benefits on May 30, 1976.
“With unemployment now running so high, many veterans are unable to find a job without obtaining additional education,” Mrs. Schroeder said.
“It is important that the educational benefits for veterans not be
★ * * it *★★★★★*★★★★
cut off at this crucial time,” she pointed out. Rep. Schroeder’s bill, H.R. 11717, would extend by five years the deadline in which veterans must utilize their educational benefits.
“It has been shown effectively that the tax dollars spent on helping to educate a veteran result in a better job for the veteran, increased wages earned, and thus a return of tax dollars significantly greater than the investment,” Ms. Schroeder said.
“I believe my bill, if passed, will also assist many veterans in completing their educational objectives,” she said.
***************
KEEP IT CLEAN
Sidewalks need to be cleaned after a snowfall; according to information received by this paper, persons or homeowners can be fined for not keeping the walks clean.
We feel that there are other reasons for keeping the walks clean:
1) courtesy to passers-by
2) respect for handicapped or older persons who have to walk to groceries, buses, and visits.
The Westside is a place where many people want to live and work. Let’s keep our sidewalks free of snow as another message of community pride and respect for each other in our neighborhood.
Home-baked goods to be sold at Adelante on Saturday, March 13th. Raffle tickets will be sold for a prize-winning cake. Contact the Action Center, 534-5141 for a ticket. We are featuring a variety of cookies, breads, cakes, and other delicious happenings. Sponsored by the West Side Action Center.

March PASCO Activities
The Senior Citizens at PASCO will have their time occupied by various activities throughout the month of March. These activities will be entertaining and informative. All of the activities were planned for the enjoyment of the elderly on the Westside.
Here are a few activities that the Senior Citizens of PASCO will be enjoying for the month of March:
Friday, which I have been told is the “holy” day at PASCO, has not been changed. “Grocery Bingo” is still scheduled for Friday. Bingo is a game that both young and old seem to enjoy.
Arts and crafts are on Thursday. Here is an opportunity for the Senior Citizens to use their hands and minds to create beautiful things to decorate their homes. It is important for the elderly to keep their hands busy, so why don’t you come to PASCO and put your hands to work.
March has a very special holiday in it. That holiday being St. Patrick’s Day. The Senior Citizens at PASCO will be celebrating with games and lots of fun. Come and join the activities but don’t forget to wear green!
There will be a Group Sing. The Seniors of PASCO will all get around the piano and sing their
favorite songs. A regular member of PASCO will conduct the sing.
Mr. Sadler of the Denver Public Library will come and talk to the Senior Citizens about how the library can help them. There are many new ideas that the library has found helpful to the elderly. This man will inform you about the various services and programs available to the Senior Citizen.
Judy Fowler will be at PASCO to help you with questions or problems you may have on Nutrition. She works on an individual basis and is very helpful in what foods do the most good for the Senior.
Dave Fager will again be at the piano for an hour of enjoyment. Dave plays the piano in a very entertaining way. He can really make a piano sing.
The Blood Pressure Clinic has been scheduled for the second Wednesday in March. A group from a clinic come to check the Senior Citizens’ blood pressure. As you get older it is important to have your blood pressure checked regularly. ; '>
These activities are just a few of the activities that will be at PASCO during March. There are lots of informative and entertaining events scheduled and lots of fun. Why don’t you join in the fun?

AU RA R I A LIB R ARY r U18702 0239899 tile : _, I Health Stations Celebrate 10th Anniversary in March Santa Fe Trail City and state officials headed by Mayor Bill McNichols and U.S . Sen. Floyd Haskell will join north east Denver residents and Depart ment of Health and Hospitals staff hood health centers to open in the nation as part of the federally funded War on Poverty, Denver's Eastside center was the first major step in establishment of a unl.que, citywide system of decentralized health centers and stations which now serve more than 100,000 people. I MARCH 1976 Issue 21 SCHOOL DISTRICT SEEKS PUBLIC INPUT I Louis J. Kishkunas, Superin t l tendent of the Denver Public l Schools, today said "We must now ; ! engage ourselves in a new program I i for the implementation of the new J / order of the District Court." "As we plan for the 1976-77 : school year and try to anticipate the 1 i needs of Denver's children, we i very much want to hear from 1 i parents and other citizens , their i! ideas about what should be done, '1 within, of course, the framework of i [ the legal of the Court J , orders." I Parents and citizens who wish to •I address themselves to this call for : I public input should write, not <;aU, 1 1 Dr. Louis J. Kishkunas, 900 Grant Denver 80203. for a March 5 celebration of the Eastside Neighborhood Health Center's lOth anniversary. Describing the anniversary as a "milestone in our city's progress," Manager of Health and Hospitals Dr. A. J. Kauvar pointed out that the opening of the Eastside center a decade ago marked the begin ning of a neighborhood . health program which has made high quality health services available to all Denver people, regardless of their economic status. "A newborn baby's chance of survival in Denver no longer depends on where in town his parents live," Dr. Kauvar added . "We could not have made that Finally a Trip to Me • CO f statement 10 years ago." X I • The March 5 festivities will include a 2-4 p.m. program and Maria has finally gotten back to Penjamo fn Guanajuato Mexico after trying to save for three years for a bus trip to the place of her birth 84 years ago. Little did she know that on the day that Jaime Newmeyer took her to court to testify concerning her recent bur glary, that she would soon be flying to Mexico. After having the trial postponed because the defendant did not appear, she was invited into Judge Orelle Weeks chambers where she related the story of the past three years. Judge Weeks, being moved by her story called the Post reporter, Cindy Parmenter, to relate her story to the public. As a result of this story, Maria received an all expensepaid trip by plane from Mrs. Simon Cottrell in Houston, Texas. Ms. Cottrell's mother is from the same town in Mexico as Maria. Cash donations have come from almost every state in our country as well as from Mexico and Canada . open house at the 29th & Welton health center and a 9 p.m. dance in the Hilton Hotel. The afternoon program at the center will be emceed by State Rep. Arie Taylor, according to center administrator Richard Poole. Speakers will include city council men and other state legislators from the center neighborhood as well as Health and Hospitals officials . . Planned to handle 450 patient visits a week, the Eastside center had more than that number of patients the first week of operation, and by the end of 1966 was recording 1,600 patient visits a week. Denver Health and Hospitals administrators used the success of the Eastside center to obtain more federal money, with which they established the rest of the facilities which make up the neighborhood health program. As federal funds have diminished , city officials have made local money available to keep the health program in operation. Although improvements in health are hard to gauge, since health departments usually measure inci dence of disease and death, one universally accepted indication of a community's health is the infant mortality rate. In 1964, before the Denver heal!h program began, the infant mortality . rate in . the city's lowest socioeconomic tracts was 33.1 deaths per thousand live births. By 1973 , the rate had dropped to 13.4, a figure no longer statistically different from the rate in more affluent parts of Denver. I Mistreated at Denver General , 1 You Have Rights Emp!oyees who have worked in the center since its opening Lillian Bailey, Claramae Beye, Maude Craig, Lois Flowers, Ray Galindo, Louise La Mark, Spurgeon Roberts, Barbara Santistevan. , Margo Smith , Elizabeth Thomas,. and Estelle Vercher will be In recognition of the Eastside center's importance to the commu nity it serves, $3.6 million in federal Community Deelopment Act funds have been made avail _ able by the city administration for construction of a new center.

Perhaps DGH could provide a form to all their clients to fill out immediately after they receive their service(s). The form could ask such questions as: "Were you treated courteously?", "How long did you wait?", etc. Or, there could be a phone available right in the main section of the hospital where anyone could dial a specific number to register a complaint . This could even be done on a tape recorder, with the complaints being checked out on a daily basis. Perhaps if the supervisors of each _ department were held responsible for checking out the complaints for their depart ments, they would take more effective measures to prevent those under them from being rude and discourteous to those they serve. 7. Last, but not least, we suggest that anyone who has received unfair treatment at DGH, or who might encounter poor treatment in the future, to write a letter to Dr. Kavaur at DGH, with copies sent to the Mayor's office and to our local representatives. If anyone needs assistance in writing such a letter, please contact Adolfo Gomez at the Auraria . Community Center, 1212 Mariposa Street, or you can call him at 534-7614. We recognize that there are probably lots of people in the Denver General Hospital system who do care, but they are being overshadowed by . the insensitivity of those who do not care . We recognize that the emergency care of DGH has a good reputation, but what about all the other areas of servi-ce? Perhaps some ofthe above suggestions to both the DGH personnel and the clients of DGH can be a start in changing the present intolerable situation .

RTD PLANS ST A liON ON WESTSIDE The First Segment of the Region a r Transportation District's Rapid Transit System passes by Denver's West Side Neighborhood on its western edge just east of the Denver, Rio Grande Railroad tracks. As part of this first segment proposal, a station has been located just south of 6th Avenue, west of Kalamath. There are, however, a number of alternate station loca tions. The first is, as described above, south of 6th Avenue and west of Kalamath; the second is between 6th and 8th Avenues, west of Mariposa; and the third is at 9th Avenue west of Navajo. The specific shape and design of the station and station site have nbt changes in both location and design can be made in the future . It is our intent, at this time, however, to be sure that we are aware of the concerns of residents of the West Side Neighborhood so that we can carry them to the RTD Board of Directors early in the decision making process. The design requirements for this station are that it be at-grade, that approximately 75 short-term park ing spaces be provided, and that it be accessible to buses. It is antici pated that bus service to this . station will be moderate to heavy, and that the total land required for the station will be approximately six acres . been defined at this time 1 430 W. 9th Avenue Denver, Colorado 80204 Deliver to: I u '

Why should we improve our homes, when the elevated tracks . will tear our homes apart , just like the 6th Ave. Freeway did and the area went industrial. What about our R-2 zoning? Why and what hap pened to our elected officials, can they save our homes? Can we as residents save our community? Oh , What can we do? Who can help us?

Wesley's New Pastor Effective January 1 , 1976 , Rev. Juventino Calderon was appointed pastor of Wesley United Methodist Church, one of the oldest Me_thod ist churches in Denver. It is located at West 5th Ave. and Galapago St. Both .the local church Administra tive Board and the District Super intendent, Rev. Bob Ely, felt that Mr. Calderon is the person wno can relate to the neighborhood. This is the only major protestant church that has not moved from the immediate Westside area in the last twenty years. It is an inte grated church , with both Americans and Anglos worshtppmg together. Rev. Calderon is bilingual. He has held pastorates in the United Methodist Church in Texas and New Mexico. At present he is completing studies for a Masters Degree in Social Work . He has many exciting plans for the future of Wesley. Last fall , he was assigned to do his professional field experience at the storefront Broadway Crisis Center at 204 Broadway. Presently Mr. Calderon works out of Child Welfare, Dept. of Social Services , where he is involved in social work treatment, staff development and information center in bilingual and bicultural counseling services for the agency. morning services are in English and plans are being made for evening services in Spanish. The Sunda y School, held at 9 :45 a.m. is being reorganized. All interested persons are invited to come and see what is being done in this unique church . Business of the Month: Richards Realty "Women should be able to go into business or do whatever they wish to for a career. Women have as many brains as men do; don't they?" Benita Oarke had family pressure to be a school teacher, but she chose a business profession and has never regretted that decision. Mrs. Clarke, who has been a •Westsider for over forty years, is the owner of Richards Realty at 5 East 4th Avenue. She has sold or helped sell many homes and other properties in tbe Westside during the twenty-seven years she has owned the business and been a real estate broker. The business was begun by Mr. Richards in 1918 in downtown Denver and Mrs. Clarke began working for him in 1936. She took over the business after he passed away, and moved the firm closer to the Westside and her home in 1957 . Besides real estate, she manages property for other people and sells insurance as an inde pendent agent. She handles all but auto insurance which is too big a headache at present. Besides the business , she is active in Westside Improvement Association, Denver Board of Realyettes, National Association of Insurance and Denver Property Owners Association. Benita Clarke has been married , has two children and several grandchildren, has her own busi ness, and owns her own home. She would like to encourage women to become involved in business and feels that they can find happiness and success there. She also feels strongly about staying home most of the time to take care of pre-George Pacheco On January 16th, 1976, George Pacheco was appointed as a member of the Colorado State Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Advisory Council. This appointment was by . the governor. The certificate is fancy and has the governor's gold seal. George hasn ' t been to any of the advisory council's meetings yet but is looking forward to serving on the council and working with young people. For six months, Mr. Pacheco was a member of the Community Panel at the Westside Youth Develop ment Project. The panel heard cases of young people and also community issues that were brought before it. Presently George is a student at Community College of Denver and is getting training in auto mechan ics , so that he can be a "grease monkey" and " work with cars." He is also involved with the work study program and is now at the Child Day Care Center on Delaware across from Sunken Gardens . Dur ing the first semester, he was working for Project Freedom as a tutor of junior high yout1'J. George is the son of Frank and Margaret Pacheco and Jives with . his parents at 663 Galapago. school children, as she did with her son and daughter. But she also did some part time work during their pre-school years. Owning a home is cheaper and better for a family than renting. Mrs. Clarke has sold many West side homes and now has some others listed. Veterans have the possibility of buying a with nothing down. Other famthes may qualify for FHA loans which requires very ' little down. Recently Mrs. Oarke sold a home for $22 , 400 and the down payment was only $600. A person or family does have to go through the loan and 9redit process. She also feels that many homes in the Westside qualify for either FHA or Veteran's loans. One of her prob lems which she knows how to get around is insurance companies "redlining" a home because it is over SO years old. If a family !lees a home, they should contact a realtor , such as Richards Realty, and work with the realtor to purchase the home. Realtors cooperate with each other and will help with the Not only is it possible to get a home loan , but after the person has . lived in ,the .home for 6 . . he or may be eligible for . a loan from the federal government at 31 / 2% for home repairs . 31 / 2% is a very low figure in today ' s economy.

Resident ofthe Month: Lillian Rivera ''The people at Urban Renewal did as much as they possibly could with the money available to work on my house," said Mrs. Lillian Rivera. She has been more than happy with the work done by the contractors and feels that the DURA staff worked hard to get her the best deal possible for the grant she received. After living in rented houses for 32 years, Lillian and Pete Rivera drove by the. house on West Ells worth and wanted to buy it. Neither realized that his military service during World War II would be an asset in purchasing the home. "Why did we wait so long? " Mrs. Rivera would encourage others to investigate the possibility of own ing a home before paying out so much for rent for too long. Pete and Lillian Rivera are the parents of 10 children (7 daughters including one pair of twins and 3 sons). Four months ago Pete Rivera died. He had been a mattress machine operator and a very good father who spent a lot of time with his family. Although the children tri . ed to talk Lillian Rivera into moving out of the Westside, they couldn't persuade her. She liked her home and she has friends throughout the neighborhood. Several months ago she applied for the DURA grant. At her home, they have redone the wiring and plumbing, reshingled the roof, and remodeled the sink area in the kitchen. They also put the electric box outside and it has circuit To any veteran who served in the service-Army, etc. -If you have been to V .A.

''I know how some people are afr(lid to have people come into their home and how some people have been taken advantage of. Once I had some dining room chairs sent out to be repaired and the company went bankrupt. I never saw the chairs again." This program was a good one and all the men who worked in her home were kind and courteous. Since there are still three child ren home , Mrs. Rivera is busy being the father and mother to them. ' ' That takes more time,'' she says. She is also active in several clubs which provide scholarships to college for area youth. United Mothers Club is behind the Mari posa Clinic and the A&B Club also has benefits which help neighbor hood youth. She and her family are now planning a "family club " to help themselves. With ten children, spouses and grandchildren, it is difficult to get enough money to go out to each or have spe . cial events, so their club will be for those events and special occasions and they will have the money to do something together. Although she doesn't commit herself to a particular job or volunteer activity, Mrs . Rivera is always there to help when she can be of assistance to an important function . She has helped out with school functions, St. Joseph's Church benefits, Westside Action Center, and her clubs . She wants to be "loose to help out when I want to." And help people she does. "My house is always open, and there are always or family here." She has never had a break in, but there is almost always someone in the house and no one can tell when the next person will arrive . . But working with her family imd being behind her children when they are going through school is very important to her and was important to her husband.

Mr. Gomez was born October 18, 1907 and Mrs. Gomez was born Octob'er 27, 1917 in Mote, Colo rado. They have known each other since he was 11 years old and she was 6 years old. On November 26, 1930 these 2 friends met at a dance in Antonito , Colorado and their friendship started to take a turn for the romantic side. They were married in 1930 and will hav e been married for 45 years on May 4, 1976. Mr . Gomez worked for the Rio Grande Company from August 17, 1946 until O c tob e r 27, 1972 .

Everyone in the scl1ool dressed as someone from the past. The costumes included such figures as Uncle Sam, Benjamin Franklin, Betsy Ross, and Davy Crockett. There were students dressed as Mexican settlers, cowboys, pioneers, men from revolutionary times, and of course, a great many figures from the not too far past, the SO's. The teachers also dressed in costumes that day. Among the best were Kathy Prochoruk who dressed as an 18th century pioneer woman, and Jan Ensminger who came as a lady gold miner. There was a program that morning for the entire school. Students from the 2nd and 5th grades gave us some of their interpretations and thoughts on past American history. Lunch that day 'llso had a Bicen tennial menu, and the cafeteria wa s decorated in red, white, and blue. The cooks, as usual, did an excellent job providing an appro priate atmosphere for this celebra tion. That afternoon there was a . contest at the . Platte River .to see who could throw a stone the river. This was reminiscent of the time George Washington threw a silver dollar across the Potomac River. The contest was between 5th grade and 8th grade, and the 8th grade proved to have the stronger throwing arms. It was a very enjoyable day for all. Sertoma awards were presented to the two outstanding 8th graders. Sertoma, which stands for ''Service To Man", is an organization of businessmen who contribute their time and effort to help students and schools in various projects. This year the awards went to Angela Mondragon and Mike Martinez . . These two were chosen by the 8th grade class and by the faculty. On March 1st the Dental Trailer will be at St. Joe's. The school is taking part in a pilot project in which the students' teeth will be examined and a fluoride treatment applied.
