"It's frustrating lor them to pay $2 and $3 each game and not be able to see what's happening on the field. They can't even see the band for- mations during halfiime, since the bleachers are so low. We have loyal fans--they deserve better." The present home bleachers were constructed around 1973 and seat approximately 520, The Athletic Boosters are pushing for a new 66-foot-long, 15-row sec- tion of galvanized steel bleach- PRICE PlS$/10Rt3 46.ms Pt|S/80R13 41.16 PIIS/a0Rt3 47.I6 PlIS/10R13 -49.16 : PIIS//SRt4 SO.IS PlB$/75R14 82,96 P295/TSR14 IMI.t5 P205/7SR15 97,95 P215/75Rl$ $2.96 P225/75R15 85,|5 P235/7SRlS |9.I6 P23S/75R15 71.96 P215/60SR14 GUARANTEED 5O, OOO MILES OR 3 YEARS SIZE P235FoOSR14 P245FoOSR14 P235/6OSR15 P245FoOSR15 P275/60SR15 P215/65SR15 P 185/70R13 RWL GUARANTEED 50,000 MILES OR 3 YEARS SIZE P185/70SR14 PI95/70SR14 P205/70SR14 P215/70SR14 P255/70SR15 OIL, tUBE & FILTER I BRAKES FRONT OR REARI I s44 s I- Install Now D~sc Pads Or I I Shoes Check Hydraul System I Most American And Some I Impo~ Cars Semi - Motatiic I Pads $15.OO Exlra Appointment May Be I Necessary m imlm&mmmmmJ I I $5 ( FF:, REGULAR PRICE I !

It wotfld seat 614, Mr Friel said, and include enough space to allow the band to sit with the fans. "File group now sits in a separate section of wooden bleachers near the north goal post. The biggest hurdle for the new project is the price tag: $40,000. Approximately $10,000 has be, :n donated by interested persons and businesses so far, Mr Friel said. "It's ve~ possible we will not reach our goal by next Feb- ruary or March. Sam Taylor's vo- tech class [at PCHSI is planning to help install the bleachers, which will save us about $7,000, but they would need to get started by early spring. The manufacturer takes 60 days tor delivery, so we don't have a lot of time to work with before reach- ing the $40,000 mark." Mr Friel added that should the bleachers not be a possibility for next year, the Boosters would continue fund-raising for an al- ternative target date of fall 1992. "We feel this is an important project," he said. "We're contact- ing quite a few alumni, too. to get donations. We welcome any help people can give us." Free Tl~ Rote#on Every S~O0 MIl~.

III I Helen Woodward Pumpkin pie would taste pretty much like any cooked squash if it weren't for all the added spices. These spices, cin- namon, cloves, and ginger -- marketed as pumpkin pie spice -- add the real flavors to a favor- ite Thanksgiving dessert. True cinnamon, cirmamomum zeylanictml (Lauraceae, the lau- rel family) comes from the dried inner bark of a tree originally discovered along the Malabar Coast in Sri I.~qnka (Ceylon). The trees grow to about 30 or 40 feet and have a scabby-like trunk with strong branches which pro- duce many young shoots. For commercial cinnamon, the inner bark of the young shoots ls used. a cinnamon tree requires only one per cent vegetable sub- stance but they need pure sand, a sheltered location, an evenly warm temperature, and constant rainfall for best growth. The Dutch originally held a monopoly on lhe trade z-ights of cinnalnon froln the Malabar Coast. It wasn't until 1776 that cultivation was permitted. Now cinnamon farms can be found in other Eastern countries, the West Indies, and South America. This true cinnamon comes in long. tightly curled sticks. The shorter sticks which are scrolled from each end inward with a flat center are cassia, cinnamomum cassia (lauraceae). The best of this lesser form of cinnamon comes from Saigon. These cinna- mons create a thick sticky sub- stance when added to liquids and have a rather bitter after- taste compared to tile very aro- matic and warm, sweet flavors of true cinnamon. This herb is very good for the stomach, stomach upsets and disturbances, especially for relief of intestinal gas, cramps, or to deter nausea. Taken as a tea or burnt as incense, cinnamon can clear and focus the mind-im- proving concentration.
