Thursday, Janua 29,2015 Free Press Page 5 continued from page 4 There are several important factors to remember about levies. First, levies are not bonds. As the saying goes, "Levies are for learn- ing, bonds are for building." Second, failure of a levy pre- vents school districts from receiving LEA funding from the state, mak- ing the loss of money even greater in many cases, such as Medical Lake and Cheney. Third, the levy rates for both Cheney and Medical Lake are not new taxes, but rather extensions of existing rates voters have before approved. We encourage residents in Cheney, Medical Lake, Airway Heights and the rest of the West Plains to show the high value we place on good education and en- hanced opportunities for our area youth. Cast your ballot, and vote "Yes" on the Cheney and Medical Lake school district's three-year maintenance and operations lev- ies Feb. 10, continued from page 4 grams (M & O) and Operations Levy coming up Feb. 10, please take time to consider the facts and vote in favor of passing this levy, we can be assured that Cheney School District will con- tinue to offer the best it can for our kids and for our community. supporting Cheney Public Schools.
