I shoxild haye k|^pt my husband's fatigut^!...Also off to "fashion" shows are Bill Fowler froni Pioneer Finniture, Mike Burnett from Wilson's, and Dale Davis from H & H Fxuiiiture.

Salvation Army carpets and drapes, and Handmedown accessories, needs their HELP! The cash registers have been ringing at Albertson's Market lately — top prize of $2,000 in the Albertson's Bingo game was won by Karen Ramos, of Ukiah; and a few days later. Lon Hultgren hit the jackpot for $1,000. Both winners, curiously enough, have four children, so you KNOW the money will come in handy. Lon, a county engineer and CalifOrTiia native, plans to spend some of his winnings on a new couch and then pay some bills. Karen, a homemaker who enjoys being "just a mother," is looking for a home and is looking forward to moving and decorating her new place. Some others Kave to work for their money; and,evidently they work VERY hard! New members of Century 2rs Million Dollar Club are Bill Barbei*.

Broadening Horizons: Bill Reid, clothing manager of Value Giant, is being transferred to Mt. Shasta, CA...And speaking of broadening, the Pear Tree Cefiter is "expecting" again. The new addition will be the Pear Tree Deli, next to K mart on the west side of the mall, (also next to Baskin Robbins, Coffee Tea and Spice and Rick's Donuts — would I be accused of hypek-bole if I referred to the area as Fat City from now on??) Owners of the new store are Lou and Loren Ross from Cloverdale. Opening is tentatively, scheduled for early March. News to Me...a brand spanking new complex of shops right ^next to Mrs. Denson's Cookies north of town on lOl. In the riost beautiful of Redwood Vglley settings, the new center already b6asts its first occupant, the Redwood Valley Deli cmd Sandwich Shop. Spotlessly cleah and featuring fresh salads, cold cuts and cheeses, beer" and soft drinks, the shop will celebrate its Grand Opening on Sat. Feb. 11, but already is a popular watering hole for Willits-Ukiah commuters. A lesson in civics: Newly-appointedmember of the Greater Ukiah Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors is Guy Velardi of Ernies Wines and Liquors. Any resemblance to this writer is purely matrimonial. Also "getting invoivetl" is Al Stilo, Guy's partner, elected secretary of the Ukiah Kiwanis club. ' The Appliance Center is celebrating its 14th anniversary with a special sale; tomorrow from 12 to 4 p.m. Jenn Air's grill-range will be greatly reduced and other merchandise * will also be discounted tremendously. It's a "Fantastic sale you won't want to miss," says Linda Hall, owner-manager. The place to go is 512 S. State St, The "Big Event" of the year — the St. Mary's School Mardi Gras — is just around the corner, bringing a chance for everyone in town to get together in an enormous cooperative effort which brings out the best in everyone, plus an opportunity to have a lot of fun. Ukiah merchants have truly outdone themselves this year in opening their hearts and their pocketbooks to the organizers of the Mardi Gras and the kids of St. Mary's. Service stations have donated tires and auto accessories; jewelry stores gift certificates; clothing stores merchandise and gift certificates; hardware stores appliances and other goods, to the auction to be conducted by Arnold Bogner. Grocery stores have been extra generous with donations of food and goods to be used in booths and for the various meals served during the festival; restaurants have contribued food itenis and wineries have donated wines to be served at Monte Carlo night and the spaghetti feed.

BOX 445 TALMAG;E,<;A 95481 DcHlor Wallace: I have so many problems that I don't know what to do. 1 really need to someone but nobody is interefited in my problems. My parents are no help. I've never been able to talk to tliem. . My biggest problem is that I'hi.only 15 and have been, taking hard drugs \m four years. I've already ruined the most important years of my life. I wouldn't.know IH)W to handle being straight after this long. Please help me. —No Name, Seattle, Wash. Dear N.N.: The fact that you wrote to me indicates that you arc in a great position to "kick the habit.'' Please send me your name and address so I can contact you personally. For the meantime, contact a clergyman, any clergyman, and explain your situation. He will know where to refer you for guidance and counseling in your area. Doit, young lady — you've got your whole life before you. Doctor Wallace: Here are my problems. I'm in grade school, a girl, and I'm 5'6". I'm taller than all the boys. Next year we will have school dances — should I go? Next —I'm getting fatter every day and my mom won't let me go on a diet. On top of that I watch too riiuch television. Finally, my mom is very old-fashioned. She won't buy me jeans, She makes me wear dresstS to school. How am I going to stay in fashion when Mom is so old- fashioned? —Petra, Rock Island, 111. Dear Petra: Let's start at the beginning. First of all we will gel after your weight. Even though you don't go on a "diet," you can lose weight. Don't snack at all be^ Iwcen meals and when you eat your normal three meals a day, don't take large servings and avoid anything that contains sugar or white flour, if possible. Next, instead of watching TV, get out and exercise — anything — ride a bicycle, play tennis, pick weeds — just do something physical and do it regularly. After a few weeks you will begin to notice a nice your body shape. t Being tall is really an asset for a girl, you will see this when you are a little older. Yes, go to the dance.

My younger brother is a great high school j^ete, but lately he has started to smoke. I don't want him to ruin his career and his health, but I don't know how to handle the situation. Should I tell his coach, my dad, or should I talk to him? — Sylvia, Colorado Springs, Colo. Dear Sylvia; The first thing to do is talk to you brother. If this doesn't work, explairt the situation to your dad. If this doesn't work, talk to a good buddy of your brother's who also is on the t.eam. I would exhaust ev^ry avenue before I would contact his coach. But if it will help — do it!
