14 The Sun, Wednesday, September 25, 1991 Propes announces bid for 2nd term Polk County Commissioner Mike Propes has announced his intention to seek a second term. Propes, who is commission chair- man this year, said a major factor in his decision is "significant improve- ment in positive relationships with the citizens of Polk County and their govern men t." Propes said that in his first four- year term he had provided leader- ship in areas critical to the county, including loss of timber jobs, water rights management, land use, road maintenance and construction pro- grams, senior citizen care and the effects of Measure 5. He said he was instrumental in improvements to the county's law enforcement services and had worked closely with volunteer advi- sory boards and commissions in the county. "As chairman of the board, I'm dedicated to continuing the excel- lent working relationships between the board, county department heads and all county employees," Propes said. "The entire Polk County team is committed to quality service to its citizens. Mike Propes "I look forward to continuing a positive and effective relationship with our citizens to assure contin- ued success in addressing all isses affecting the future of Polk County," Propes said.

No school bells at Chapman this year additional activities for the school. The chosen activities revolve around the social theme and one academic theme. In September the school had a new student car wash whereby the new staff and students welcomed by the whole student body as they walked down the hall to the tune of a popular song. Chapman also had a field day the fhst week of school in which the lower hall played outdoor games and then watched a f'dm and the upper hall competed in homeroom competition tug of war and played a staff vs. students softball game. Student council is again rolling and have thus far planned and sponsored Spirit Week for Chap- man. Each day is a different dress up day such as backwards, tacky tourist, hat, clash, and school colors. The lower hall is having a spirit banner competition and the week will conclude with a pep assembly for the upper hall. We are excited about the new activities and have a whole year planned for the students. The PTA has again started offer- ing to sell clothes at a very low price to families in need. They are open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, from 3:15-4:15 at Faulconer School. This year the Chapman staff has decided to run the daily schedule without any bells ringing to tell them when to change classes. So far it has worked well for the whole school. This year we have implemented a homeroom program for the 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. The purpose of the homeroom concept is for students to have one teacher who they have contact with in ways that enable them to see another staff member as their connection to the school, who is them to help them and provide activities that build self-esteem and school spirit. The daily schedule has been changed so that on Mondays, Wed- nesdays and Fridays the students have 25 minutes in homeroom. On Mondays, the homerooms are work- ing through study skills units, and on Wednesdays and Fridays the homerooms are doing social skills activities which revolve around a given theme (September is School Spirit/Get Acquainted) and partici- patting in an intramural volleyball program. In addition to the homeroom program, Chapman has established a Spirit Committee which is made up of staff members who plan Stork Stops Gary and Mary Stuck of Willa- Grandparents are Don and Nadine mina announce the birth of a daugh- Stuck of Sheridan, Anita and ter, Lani Frances Stuck, Sept. 10 at Robert Bowers of Knightsen, Calif., McMinnville Community Hospital. and Cecil and Roxann Greene of She weighed 7 lbs, 8 oz. Pittsburg, Calif. Hospital offers free prostate cancer McMinnville Community Hospi- tal is offering free prostate cancer examinations Thursday, Sept. 26, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The exams are held in connection with Prostate Cancer Awareness Week in a nation- wide effort to help men find out if they have the second most fatal cancer. "Prostate cancer can develop and spread with no warning signs," explained Dr. G. Craig Kiser, a McMinnville urologist. "Therefore early detection is critical to success- ful treatment." A limited number of examina- tions will be offered, and appoint- ments should be made by calling 472-6131. During Prostate Cancer Aware- ness Week last year, 150,000 men nationwide received free exams. Of those tested in McMinnville, eight were discovered to have prostate cancer. During the simple exam, which takes about one minute, a physician inserts a gloved finger into the patient's rectum and presses against the prostate, feeling for enlarge- ments or hard lumps. In addition, an investigational blood test known as Prostate Specific Antigen will also be administered. The combination of both tests provides the highest diagnostic accuracy rate. More than 122,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in 1991, and 32,000 will die of the disease, making it the second lead- ing cause of cancer death among men over the age of 55. One in 11 men will get prostate cancer in his lifetime. Prostate cancer, like can potentially be cured if t I I TOW ROPE cHRoME TRAILER BALLS I WITH HOOKS, S8001b.
