Page 8 Cheney Free Press A Personal Letter from Ben Curtis This is sort of a lazy man's way of writing a l,rsonal letter. But I would like to say "'llello." to my many friends, school chums and fam- ily acquaintances in and arouil Cheney. As many of yOU may rememlmr, I'm the son of Fred W. Curtis, who was born in Cheney in, 1883. is still active in the community, and is still living on the homestead south of town which has been ir the family for nearly 100 years. It was orig- inally selected by my grandfather, Benjamin Franklin Curtis. one of the area's tittle pioneers. Most of the time since I left Ohe- hey, I've been employed by tha Mc- Collum Ford Ranch, the Frd deal- ership in the Spokane Valley. Frank- ly, I didn't exactly start at the top, but on the grease rack. :Next, I spent three years i the mechanical department, learning about engines from the inside out This was fol- lowed by 19 moths of service with the armed forces during the Korean corfflict. After this, I returned to McCof lores in 1956 and have been busily and very happily engaged in' sell- in Ford products I was married in 1951 and my wife, Doreer, who is a registered nurse, and I live in Spokane at W. 3923 Broad Avenue, in the new Sha- die Park district. We have a daugh- ter, Ireerm, who is nine. and a son, Craig, who is 11. Both attend J. J. Browne elementary school. My wife is on the staff at St Luke's hospital, but stl]l finds time to be very active in PTA as secre- tary arA program chairman. I like my job. I enjoy selling, not cars and trucks, but transportation. I have stayed with one dealer all these years because I think that's the best way to get the best in ser- vice and satisfactio# for my custo- mers. If you are thinking of buying or trading for a new car or truck, I'd appreciate an opportunity to talk to you. Drive out to Dishman or call me collect at WA 4-1000, or my home FA 8-4210 and I'll meet you at your home or farm whenever it's con- veniet. Best wishes and best regards to ev- eryone I knew in Cheney. When I lived there, I honestly believe those were the happiest years of my life. It's a great little city. mr 6-12 Classified advertising does a great at a small cost.

School Board for Electric Heat; Takes Zoning Stand The Cheey municipal pawer system will probably enjoy Large increase in power consumption ulster the new ,high school is buff here as a result of action by the school board at its last meeting. It was revealed that the city light department has guaran- teed a seven mill flat rate far five years for electricity for heating the new building. Joe Doyle, con, su lti.:g engineer, md estimated the cast for all electricity inclufiing heatin'g would be approximately $8200 per year. This amounts to a lit- tie more than the cost of nor- ma.1 electricity usage plus heavy fuel oil fo heating. Electricity Favored However, when other actors were considered, such as ini- tial east, maintenance, ,air con- diti0ning, flexibility of control etc., the comparison seemed to favor electric heating and the decision was unanim0us to in- struct t,he architect to plan for electric heating, provided un- derground service is insCai:ed. In the matter of the county summc rcc'reaLion program, the bard decided to approve of plan No. 3. This includes a swmmir.ig program as in past summers with the district fur- mshing bus ,trarsportation fo,r children in popu.',ation centers ou, tside of C!heney.
