COMMUNITY FRIDAY, MARCH 5, 2004 - 5 I inn ftl,._l, i j- it_- j m Amy \Vellnit//I'he Dnily .Idiirniil Lisa Mack, standing third row far right, and students from her fourth-grade class at Frank Zeek Elementary School, pose for a picture with the quilt students made while studying California history. Mack said the class is raffling off the quilt - at $1 a ticket - to raise money to ao to science camp and also the ropes course in Leggett. Quilt Continued from Page 3 a three-dimensional mountain lion's den on it. "I did it from pictures," he said, but admitted he got a little help from his mom. The fourth graders said making the quilt squares was "kinda hard," to quote Lopez. "The sewing was hard," she continued. In fact, about half of the class said they hadn't ever sewn anything before working on their California history quilt. "But we got to do it for homework and nothing else," said Zarroza, which she thought was a pretty good trade off. Plus "it's fun," said Clark Walker, 10, about designing and sewing the squares. Mack explained that the process of making each quilt square included tracing patterns, getting sketches approved, picking out the various cloths and colors, cutting out the appliques, and then sewing them on. One of the parents of a student in class, Mrs. Gulledge, she said, then finished up the quilt by sewing all the squares together, adding buttons and also fabric loops at the top so that the quilt can be hung. Some of the other squares on the quilt depict the missions, the state flag, the California bear, farming, Mickey Mouse, the state reptile the desert tortoise, and a variety of produce grown both here and across the state like grapes, pears and even an apple with a worm in it. Not only did the students get to learn about California history, sewing, art and quilt making, Mack said, but also they are now raffling the quilt to raise money to go to science camp and the ropes course up in Leggett. The raffle tickets cost $1 a piece, she said, and can be purchased by calling Frank Zeek School at 463-5245. Library Continued from Page 3 on display for the month of March. These paintings were made during a four-week class given at the Ukiah Library by the Instilling Goodness School. Each child that completed the class had one painting framed, and they now are hung above the stacks on the back wall of the Children's Room. Children's Librarian Ina Gordon just received good news that the Friends of the Library will be helping with some much needed improvements (o the Children's Room. More book cases are going in. a computer desk will replace the wood table, and the play area near the windows will have some new additions. Two monetary gifts have also been given: one from a disbanded writers group, and the other for the purchase of geography books. As I repeat often, with the severe cutbacks of funds to school libraries, it is critical for our county libraries to keep as current as possible.

March 13: beginning computers; March 20: word processing; April 3: Internet; and April 10: e-mail. The Friends of the Library will be holding its next meeting on Wednesday, March 10 at 6 pm.
