NEIGHBOR NEWS C"E"E''" EP"Essl7 Thursday, May 14, 2015 LOOKING BACK 10 Years Ago May 12, 2005 A sudden spring storm dumped nearly an inch of rain on Cheney, forcing storm drains to clog and water to pool on area streets.

Float chairman Brooks Murphy put his reputation on the line with his claim the float would be ready for the Spokane Lilac Festival. Following considerable discussion on the history of the community, the Cheney Planning Commission voted to recommend to the City Council that the city's theme be designated as that of a western railroad town. The directive was meant to preserve as many brick buildings as possible. Cheney's split of a pair of Frontier League baseball games where they beat East Valley 7-5, but lost to West Valley 10-1, cost the Blackhawks a spot in the' postseason. Coach Rick Rust's team finished the season 12-12. 50 Years Ago May 14, 1965 Cheney's Richard Hagelin earned an appointment to the U.S. Air Force Acad- LOOKING BACK WITH THE CHENEY HISTORICAL MUSEUM One hundred years ago on May 8, 1915, the fifth annual May Day Festival was celebrat- ed with a parade of many floats and bands, games, and a dance.
