COUNTY LIBRARIAN My husband bought me a quirky T-shirt a few years ago when I joined a bunko group. It says "Ladies Sewing Circle and Terrorist Society." It was funny at the time, but it isn't anymore, and I don't think I'll ever wear it again. Similarly, I don't think too many folks are buying albums by the band called Anthrax right now. Current events in our own country have caused us to learn more about an- thrax in the past months than we ever thought we'd need to know. However, because television news only provides a brief overview of most topics, those who want more in- depth h'~iformation are turning to books. A fasci- nating account, published by the University of Cali- fornia Press and recently purchased by the library, casts a new perspective on current events. In April of 1979, an out- break of anthrax, which occurred in the Soviet city of Sverdlovsk, killed at least 64 people. At the time, Russian officials at- tributed the disaster to tainted meat, and it wasn't until 1992 that a Russian- American team of scien- tists was permitted access to the area. The team's conclusion: an accident at a nearby biological weapons facility had re- leased a cloud of anthrax spores which was carried on the wind. The details behind this epidemic and its cause are revealed in "Anthrax: The Investigation of a Deadly Outbreak," written by Jeanne Guillemin, a Boston College medical so- ciologist. This gripping medical detective story demonstrates the scientific nature of the investiga- tion, while at the same time portraying the emo- tional effects of the epi- demic on the survivors. Guillemin's research leads her to question the political morality of bio- logical weapons, and to question any government's ability to protect its citi- zens from such a threat, whether it comes from out- side or from within. While the current world situation isn't pleasant, you can improve your own situation, and keep a healthy sense of perspec- tive, by staying informed with books and magazines from your local library.

"We're glad to have Quincy on the schedule again," said Cactus Bob Cole, a part-time Westwood resident and mem- ber of Faux Renwah. "I hate driving." He does a lot of it every winter, though, as the Yeow tour expands from what be- gan six years ago as a one- night stand in Sutter Creek. It opens this season in Quincy, then moves to Amador, Stanislaus, Sacramento, Tu- lumne and Merced counties. The set lists cover musical genres--comedy to balladry to cowboy yodeling to Blue- grass to the blues. Among the stars is Sour- dough Slim, the yodeling cow- boy from Paradise, who re- cently won the Academy of Western Artists' Will Rogers Award as yodeler of the year. He plays in the Yeow shows with sidekick Blackwood Tom, the self-proclaimed "King of the Cowboy Clar- inet." Doodoo Wah, from the Gold Rush town of Columbia, of- fers what singer-songwriter Ron DeLacy calls "politically incorrect folk music." He and partner Dave Cavanagh poke musical fun at targets from Bill Clinton to both George Bushes, Caltrans, middle age and Florida voters. Faux Renwah brings to- gether Cactus Bob, the Prairie Flower (Chris Steven- son) and Michael P. Kennedy with a repertoire of old and original fiddle and banjo tunes. Yeow tickets are $15 in ad- vance or $18 at the door. For reservations or more infor- mation, call (209) 5,36-0,367, or go online at" . The Eta Alpha sorority pre.
