Restaurant g Lounge Richland 541-893-6122 Back-up Generators Photo by David Baker THESE TWO TRAILER-MOUNTED, TWO-MEGAWATT GENERATORS were installed last Thursday, August 7, at the Halfway substation located across from the Forest Service compound. The generators will provide power to the Halfway/Richland area during construction of the new 230KV power line between Brownlee and Oxbow, at times when power over existing lines must be interrupted. Deen Charters, Idaho Power lineman for this area, said there will be no break in power when the generators are brought on line, but there may be a brief delay when they are taken off line in the evening after normal business hours. Charters expects the generators will probably not need to be used until late September and into October. The two generators, each of which uses 130 gallons of diesel fuel per hour, will provide more than enough power for the area. Ultrasound Screening for Stroke Risk Available Life Line Screening will be in Baker City at the First Presbyterian Church, 1995 Fourth St., to offer the chance for residents to be screened to reduce their risk of having a stroke. Screening will be- gin at 9 a.m. Through preventative screening, the risk of stroke can be greatly reduced. Screenings involve the use of ultrasound technology and scan for potential health prob- lems related to blocked arter- ies that can lead to a stroke, aortic aneurysms that can lead to a ruptured aorta, and hardening of the arteries in the legs, a strong predictor of heart disease. Also offered for men and women is a bone density screening to assess the risk of osteoporosis. Each screening requires 10 minutes or less to complete. A complete vascular screen- ing package, including the stroke/carotid artery, ab- dominal aortic aneurysm and ankle brachial index (hard- ening of the arteries) is $109. A complete vascular package, which includes the osteoporo- sis screening, is $139. For more information re- garding the screening or to schedule an appointment, call 1-800-643-6188. Pre-registra- tion is required.
