FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 18,1987 COMMUNITY THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL Help offered parents and foster parents Help In parenting Is offered by local agencies to parents and foster parents. By FAE WOODWARD Community Newt Editor Parents and foster parents will be receiving a lot of help this next week from the Mendocino County Department of Social Services, the Mendocino County Youth Project, the Child Abuse/Neglect Prevention Council and the Foster Parent Training Program. A foster parent information night is scheduled Monday, Sept. 21, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the United Methodist Church in Ukiah. A parenting classes by the Youth Project will begin Thursday, Sept. 24, at Nokomis Elementary School; and Reynold Bean of the Mendocino County Child Abuse/Neglect Prevention Council will offer a workshop on "Raising Children's Self Esteem." Tis will be Saturay, Sept. 26. Anyone interested in becoming a foster parent, or in gaining more knowledge of the foster care system is invited to attend the "Foster Parent Information Night." The church is located at 270 N. Pine St. Representatives from Children's Services and the Youth Project and experienced foster parents will be available Monday evening to discuss the foster care programs and the requirements to become a foster parent. A video on foster parenting will be presented followed by an open question and answer period. There are a growing number of children of all ages who are victims of severe neglect or abuse and who are in need of a stable and nurturing environment, according to Jeff Killebrew of the Youth Project. "Foster parents provide that sup- The classes are free, but there will be a $9 charge for the text. Free child care will be provided. The classes focus on improving communication skills and experimenting with new discipline techniques which bring more positive results. Parents will leam and practice new ways to listen to children (and spouses and friends!), and how to state demands, feelings and Classes and workshops slated next week port and help to the children of our community," Killebrew says. According to Killebrew, these substitute parents find a rewarding challenge in helping children move towards becoming responsible citizens and breaking the cycle of child abuse. People who are interested in becoming foster parents, but who cannot attend the information night should phone Jan Hartman at' the Department of Social Services (463-2540) or Killebrew at the Youth Project (463-4915). Parenting classes by the project will be offered in eight Thursday afternoon sessions, beginning Sept. 24. The hours will be 4 to 5:30 p.m. expectations in a calm and non- judgemental way. Parents also learn how to set clear limits, create effective consequences for misbehavior, and help children learn to solve their own problems. The instructor, Robin Goldner, says parenting classes are extremely important because of the support they provide parents. "Raising children who feel good about themselves and their relationships with others is probably the hardest and most tiresome task imaginable," she says. "Meeting with other parents, problem solving, and simply knowing that there are others out there who are in the same rocky boat as you are really makes the job easier! And then, almost magically, as parents feel more support, things start improving at home." Recent parenting class participants feel they and their families have benefited enormously, Goldner says. She quotes a mother of two toddlers as saying: "I am now calmer when dealing with my kids. I have learned to think things through before I act." She says a father of a teenager remarked: "I now try to listen to my kids more and appreciate their point of view." She says another father summed it up by saying: "I know that every parent should take this class!" Parents interested in the class should phone 463-4915 to register. The Bean workshop, Sept. 26, also will be at the Methodist Church. This will be an all-day event, starting at 9 a.m. and concluding at 4:30. The morning session will be from 9 a.m. util 12. Lunch break will be an hour and a half, with the afternoon session from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. There will be a S3 fee per person. Limited child care will be available. More information is available at 463-2437 (Ext. 157).

"This program is directed mainly \o older residents, who arc at greatest risk of serious complications from a bout with the flu, she explained. "However, flu shots will be administered to others in the high risk category." ' This year's flu shot contains the strains A/Taiwan/86, A/Leningrad/86, and B/Ann Arbor/86 to provide immunity against the types of flu which have been circulating in the past year and ore thought to be most likely to occur in the United Slates this winter, according to the health department. "All the viruses in the vaccine have been killed so they cannot infect anyone," Brawley explained. She also announced a vaccine against pneumonia will be available at the flu clinics. There are many different types of pneumococcal pneumonia, the public health nurse stated. This vaccine protects against most. "This is a once in a lifetime shot," she said.

CHIT CHAT Open house slated at Fireside Lodge Angelina Bautista is celebrating 10 years at Fireside Lodge, 1450 Knob Hill Rd., Ukiah, with an open house Saturday, starting at 2 p.m. Bautista, who came to this area from San Francisco, has been operating the residential care facility known at Fireside Lodge for 10 years this month. It has been a good 10 years, she says, although in the beginning a number of Ukiahans tried to chase her away. "The facility previously had been owned by Jim Jones," she explains. When Bautista explained to callers she was not a member of The People's Temple, they no longer gave her any trouble. A registered nurse, working at St. Mary's Hospital in San Francisco, Bautista was under a great deal of stress when she and her husband visited Ukiah a decade ago. When her husband suggested this community as a place to Legion presents school with pole for new flag Activities celebrating the 200th anniveresary of the constitution of the United States at Redwood Valley School was kicked-off with dedication of a new flag pole. The new pole was donated to the school by Lewis White Post 76, American Legion. A new flag was provided by Cong. Doug Bosco. The new banner had flown over the White House in Washington, D.C., on Aug. 15, 1987. Representing the American Legion at the dedication ceremony were Jim Stone, commander of Post 76; Woody McBroom, second vice commander; George Burden, past district commander; and Seymour Brush, past post and district commander; Shirley Chandler, president of the auxiliary to Post 76; Jean Stone, past president, and first vice president; Rena Lee, Carol Sellmer, Evelyn Long and Edna Burden of the auxiliary. Ceremonies from Washington D.C. were followed by students at Redwood Valley on three television sets. Redwood Valley ceremonies were timed to coincide with the televised program from the nation's capitol. Students and visitors gathered to hear the history of the constitution of the United States, and gave the Pledge of Allegiance, led by Pres. R.>naid Reagan A board of directors' breakfast will be Sunday monring at the Manor Inn, with the conference's regional president in charge. Lila Lee, regional vice president for the Mendo-Lake District, is general chairman of the symposium. Assisting her is Everett Ingram, Mendocino County Historical Society president, and Mary Ingram of Leggett; Viola Richardson, Ernestine Prather and Bob Lee of Ukiah; Phyllis McMillan of Gualala; Eleanor Campbell of Fort Bragg and Dan Taylor of Willits, all from the Mendocino County society. settle, she said it was too far from San Francisco. "He reminded me it was quiet and peaceful, here," she says. That sold her, and the two moved to the Fireside Lodge. Among the benefits of the quieter life they have been able to lead here, is there six-year-old daughter. Although a care home is a 24-hour a day job, Bautista says it is more relaxing than the rigors of an acute hospital. She invites Ukiahans to join her in her 10-year anniversary celebratrion. Refreshments will be served. 4-H fair planned for Oct. 10,11 Third annual 4-H regional fair at Cloverdale has been scheduled for Oct. 10 and 11 at the Citrus Fairgrounds.
