That includes building a new school outside of Fairchild Air Force Base. The city of Airway Heights has decided through a vote of the City Council to reject the bid by Century West Engineering for the design phase of the $1.67 million McFarlane Road reconstruction project. Local legislators have signed on to a bill that would give the state's school districts more control over the essential learning re- quirements needed for students to receive the certificate of mastery and eventually graduate from high school. Ninth District representatives Don Cox, (R-Co!fax), and Mark Schoesler, (R-Ritzville), are cospon- sors of HB 1312 and said several Democrats. have signed on to the bill to give it bipartisan support.

Nor can this pardon, this com- munion in forgiveness, remain interior and invisible. It must be clearly manifest. So the mystery of the Church demands that Christians love one another in a visible and convrete way... Christ will not be visible to the world in His Church except in proportion as Christians seek peace and unity an- other and will all people. But since conflict is inevitable, unity cannot be maintained except in great difficulty, with constantly renewed sacrifice, with lucid honesty, openness, humility, the readiness to ask forgiveness and to forgive" St. Paul's Episcopal ChL/rch is located next door to the EWU campus at 625 C St. United Methodist Church It's "Souper Bowl" Sunday at the Cheney Untied Methodist Church!
