EDITOR Spokane County Not In Resort Business Not king ago a group of Fish Lake resi- dlCs and the aperors of Meyers Park at the Lake met with sme of the county oom- missioners. At tlmt time they were told the count,  to earlier ports, did nt ",- teml to enter into competition wth private resorts at the old Bunker's Resort. Since tlmn the commissioners have elaborated on their decision in the ann county Commis- onews report. It is being reprinted here so that ,other resort ownexs in the Cheney area may low exactly what their posi¢ion is. "The board of county commisoners of Spokane County recently emered nto an agreement to purchase a portion of Fish Lake 'as a family recrtion area. "This portion purchased by the county ws formerly a resort which was rung in di- rect competition .to another resort located on the lake• As soon as the information was released by the commissioners tat the re- sort would be purchased, many people ealed stating that the calmly should not go into the resort business. "I am sure t'ht those who feel that the county is going into competition  re- sorts n this area ,are eTttixely misinformed as ,to the program contemplated by the Park and Recreation De1.artment of Spokane Cotm- ty. "Tlis property is berg acquired for the one purpose of furnishing a phce where fam- ilies can enjoy -creaorml facRites ogeth- er. It will be opened for limited ,hours during the day whereas a resort operation is open 24 lmurs a day. It will incktde orrly necessary eating facilities for famihes whereas the av- erage resort oper@tes a store and restaurant. There will be no alcoholic beverages sold. "We in the Nzyrthwest, becatse of our abundance of natural recreational fcilities, do not realize that it will be ordy a matter of time until resort areas will be subdivided, .aal the hke shares will be er3ely take up by Wivate interests and ownership, av_d that our children and grandehiklreat wI not en- joy access to these areas that we enjoy today• "Gxat enhasis is being plaed on future recreaonal actities and aequisi.tion by both Federal and Stae governments. Our State will have a bond referendum measure nd possibly one initiave on the ba'ot re- lating to the .acquisition of Land for recrea- thoral facilities. ] "The State of New York has floated $100,-I 000,000 in bortds for 'this tmrpose. New Jersey $60,000,000, pennsylvania $75,000,000, I and Oalifornia voters Eais yea will be asked to approve $150,000,000 in bond issues to ac- quire lard for future recreational use. By i purchasing 'land rmw from wilin,g sellers, we in Spokane County can make sure tha,tl there are facilities provided witlout waiting for the State .of Federal Gvernment 'to ac-i quire land by condemnation. "It is true that the Fish and Game De- partments have access areas on lakes at the presen, t time, but this access is only made available to fishermen with boats to enable l them to get onto the lakes. In most cases' tMs is provided for adults only. There is no provisin for picnic ave,as, wter eking or any other activities from these access areas. "We in Spokane County intend to proride] a acity, under consent supervision of our park department, where the family can play together and where eon the smallest chil- dren can enjoy the facility in asuevd safety. "In summary, we are not going L, lto ae resort business, but we are acquiring proper- ty with the feeling we are carrying out our responsibilities by making provisio for the future young people of Spokane Gotmty to have adequate recretion areas." 40 Years Ago l Chester Miller, Virginia, Gir- !oux, Franc Mffier, Helen I Franz, IIavold Gross and Iw- 1924 Iard Miler• Miss Dori Larm fom the high school and Mss Helen / Albauh fom the Normal sdmol were selected candY. dates for maid f Imnor to the May Queen.

Jessen Soil Conservation Service What "'tools" cur be used in rangeland manageaneI, to get better uti'ution v the naCdve laures? There are many veays to in- crease the carrying capacity on tke open fields, and still conserve the Dtmch for future grazing, and there- by conserw, the soil. The fst important step is proper range tse. By graz2ng, the key man- agemen¢ phnts to leave about 50 per cent of the current year's growth by weight, oer- grazing can be avcled. The key management parers f, or tire area .are Bluebunch wheat- grass, Idaho fescue and Sand- burg bluegrass. The next impon¢ step ,is range readin,ess. This :s keep- ig the cattle off of the graz- ing unit in the spring until the soil is firm, aod the above, plants have reached six to eight inche::, of new rowth. Deferred grazing is an, oher "tool" to increase the carry- ing capaC:ty. This can be doric on the ca,tire urit, or done in a rotation system. The main idea is to allow the key grass- es to ripen their seeds bedsore the cat¢,e ale allowed t,c graze. In he rtaCdon defevred sys- tem, it is wise for each unit o be deferrc at le,as every third or fourth year; more often is bter. ttange seeding would be a means of replenishing a stand .of near naive type of grasses on a poor eonditiio} range site. The seeding should be pro- tected the first year by install- ing a fence around that unit. Water develomem is im- portant for gett'mg full tttiza- tin af*ech field. Fa" too many sixes are left under- grazed for the lack of livestock water supply. Cattle slhol,d rt have to walk .more than a quar- ter of a mile to water.

Fencing is an imlorart mears to con!trol tle gaazing. This is needed in the ro,atJo,n de ferrc.d system.
