This serves as a commercial, Trclcase says, instill ing a love of books while it im proves the child's reading, writing, and listening. "Kids don't have favorite vow elsthey have favorite stories. Who ever found a kid in bed with a flashlight and workbook?" Sounds too easy? The National Commission on Reading declared "reading aloud to children" is the single most important factor in raising a reader.

At some time just about every one will get stopped for some reason. Maybe you'll be stopped for a minor traffic violation. May be you'll be in a collision. Maybe your vehicle's equipment won't Register children now for Head Start classes For those parents or other care givers living within the boundaries of the Warm Springs Reservation, with children of 3 and or 4 years old: If your child is not presently in one of the Early Childhood pro grams; Head Start, Head Start Day Care, or Tribal Preschool; you may be interested in how to get your child into one of these pro grams. Procedures for getting your child registered and ready to enter one of these programs are: 1. Call John Nettleton, Parent Health Coordinator, at 553-3377 or 3241 and ask to have your child's name put on the waiting list. 2.

The waiting list does not operate on a "first come, first serve" basis. To determine which child shall fill an opening in one of the programs, the following criteria are applied in order: 1. Child meets Head Start in come eligibility guidelines. 2. Child is handicapped or at risk. 3. Family hardship or trauma. 4. Child is from a single parent family. 5. Other Example: distance from Head Start center. If there are changes in your family circumstances that effect any of these criteria, please call John at 3377 to update your records. The Head Start Tribal Preschool programs look forward to serving you and your children. meet legal requirements. Whatever the reason, you will most likely eventually be stopped on some minor charge. And when that happens, the police will dis cover you have been driving un licensed. Penalties Under Oregon law, driving un licensed is classified as a Class B traffic infraction. This means you will face a minimum bail of $100, and may be fined up to $250. And, under a new Oregon law, your vehicle will be marked so that if you drive it again, law enforce ment officers will continue to stop and cite you. Getting caught When a police officer stops you, the officer will confiscate your vehicle's registration, issue a reg istration cancellation notice effec tive after 60 days, and place a black-and-white striped sticker over each of the validation stickers on your vehicle's license plates. You will have 60 days to get licensed and clear your record. Although you may drive the vehi cle for the next 60 days, you will face the inconvenience of being stopped by law officers who see the black-and-white stickers. The law allows law enforcement officers to stop marked vehicles at any time. If you do not get your license and new stickers, the vehicle's registration will be canceled on the 61st day and you will be unable to drive the vehicle until you get a driver license and pay for a new registration, in addition to other penalty fees. What if the driver Is not the owner? If you own the vehicle, and someone else was caught driving it unlicensed, the vehicle's registra tion still will be canceled, and you will have to pay reinstatement fees and other penalties. If you suspect someone who wants to borrow your car does not have a driver license, don't take the risk. You will pay for it. The 'system' is worth it The reason for having a system to license drivers should be ob viouswith nearly three million people in Oregon using the roads, some method needs to exist to ensure that drivers are qualified to operate their vehicles and that drivers have the means to pay for any damage they may cause. Licensing drivers is an attempt to keep Oregon's roads safe foryou and the people you care about your family and friends. Unli censed drivers hurt a system de signed to protect you and others who use the roads. Obey the law. Get your driver license before you operate a motor vehicle in Oregon. It will save you money and trouble, and will help make Oregon a safer place for everyone. handle only one child will be con sidered.
