Page 8 VouR COMMUNITY - February 27, 2008 I,I By Jessica Lewis For The New Era Filling your prescription in Sweet Home is about to get easier. An expansion of the new Econ- omy Drugs pharmacy at Thriftway supermarket is expected to begin next month and will include a drive- up window, according to pharmacist Jamey Calhoon. "We're going to build a regular, full-sized pharmacy instead of this little shack," said Calhoon, motion- ing to the kiosk inside Thriftway that was constructed in November as a temporary facility for the pharmacy. Economy Drugs will offer prescrip- tion fills, counseling, compounding, immunization, and "just good basic pharmacy services," he said. The new pharmacy will be 2,400 square feet, although part of that will be storage space, according to Calhoon. It will be built out into the parking lot where the coffee kiosk stands. Thriftway manager Mark McDonald has said the kiosk will be moved to the parking lot north of the grocery store. The store is a member of a part- nership of pharmacies located in Roseburg, Redmond, Prineville, LaP- ine and Madras. It opened on the heels of the clo- sures of Home Town Drugs last June and Groves Pharmacy in September. Both of those l:businesses were sold to Safeway. Calhoon s aid that having a second pharmacy in S weet Home should help keep lines drown. He said he thinks "there might bce too much business for just one pharrmacy," and the drive-up window will thelp make filling pre- scriptions easker. "The driwe-up window will be helpful for peo)ple who are just travel- ing through amd want to quic}dy drop off or pick up p rescriptions, and people who have trouible getting around can just drive up," Calhoon said. Although no completion date has been set, Calhoon hopes the pharmacy will be ready t(o open by the summer.

They got extra pay for certain activities, though; jumping from an airplane to a train was worth $150,for instance. Any stuntman who parachuted out of an exploding plane wouM get $500, and it was w rth $1,500 to crash a plane into a house or a tree. Con- sidering the sgtate of technology and safety standalrds of the day, it's no wonder that b~etween 1925 and 1930, 55 people wen'e killed while perform- ing movie stumts, and another 10,000 were injured.
